About this listing
One bedroom casita with sofa bed, bathroom and fully equipped kitchen. Outdoor patio with ocean breezes and private garden views. Situated in small Mexican beach town with amenities including basic shopping, restaurants and the beach.
Our casita was newly built in 2013.
There is one bedroom with a queen bed and a sofa bed suitable for one adult in the living room.
We offer a private gate for access and on street parking is available.
On request, we will stock the kitchen with basic needs prior to guest arrival.
The town of Lo de Marcos is small enough that access is easily available by walking. The beach is approx. 10 minutes walk and the downtown is less than that.
There is bus service from Puerto Vallarta which is approx. one hour away. Taxis are also readily available as well as the local bus to the neighbouring towns of Guayabitos and La Penita. Guadalajara is four hours away by bus.
Interaction with guests
The casita is basically in our backyard so interaction with guests is inevitable. However we respect our guests privacy and will not intrude unnecessarily.
Our neighbourhood is quiet and peaceful. We are approx. three blocks from the main street and the highway. There are no neighbours behind or beside us.
Taxis are available in the town to take guests to other local towns. The local bus runs every hour with transportation south to Puerto Vallarta and towns in between. To get to other Mexican points La Penita - a 15 minute drive away - offers excellent, reasonable bus and taxi service.
Other things to note
Lo de Marcos is a small Mexican village. There are restaurants for eating and small shops for basic requirements. There is very little 'night life'. The beach is long and broad and during most of the year, it is not crowded.
With the casita in the backyard of our home, we expect our guests to respect our privacy as we will there's. Also while the casita is air conditioned, we expect it's use only when the unit is occupied and only on very hot days. Electricity is expensive in Mexico. And generally the nights are comfortable enough for sleeping. Ceiling fans are located in each room.
We request that guests don't smoke.
We are both retired. We have a home in Mexico where we spend most of the year. We do travel back to Canada for several months in the summer. We have travelled extensively in the US, Canada and Mexico by RV.
We are outgoing people who love new experiences and meeting new people.
We love to talk about our travel experiences and enjoy hearing of new and interesting places to see and things to do.
We are very respectful of other's property and privacy. We live by the credo - treat others as you would like to be treated.
