RIO NEXPA, LUXURY BEACH CASTLE ON WORLD-CLASS SURF WAVE

Rio Nexpa House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, sleeps 9

Olavaquero is a 3 bedroom, 2 ½ bath, 4300 sq ft first class beach house surrounded by vegetation and situated a stones throw away from the ocean. It was designed by San Francisco based nationally recognized designers Americo Diaz-Obregon and Charles Lee.

The house is a 10 min walk or a quick drive through the mango orchard back to Rio Nexpa Village; the short distance provides privacy and a deserted beach to call your own.

The defining characteristic of Olavaquero is a 10 foot wide tower that begins on the ground floor and continues though the 2nd floor roof; the tower has an internal staircase leading to a 3rd floor roof deck and finally the Crows Nest. The Crows Nest is perched 55 feet in the air and covered by a thatched roof, there is no better place to check the surf or watch the sun set.

Olavaquero was everything I expected it to be and more. I have stayed in multiple rental properties around the world and Olavaquero's floor plan, design, amenities, location and style are top notch. It is by far the best accomodations in the area. The fully equipped kitchen, office, living & entertainment rooms are clean, well maintained and all the equipment is brand new. Both master bedrooms have ocean view and the 3rd (twin) room has beautiful views of the mountains, yet you can still hear the ocean even from the back room...that is how close to the water this house is. The furnishings in the rooms are well thought out and the layout is very spacious and comfortable - king size beds, ample light, spacious counters in the bathrooms and plenty of privacy even if the rooms are shared. The 360 views are spectacular. There is a tall wall around the perimieter of the house...the courtyard is big enough to park the car on the inside and lock up the entire place completely. Olavaquero and its surroundings offer: 350 days/year surf, swimming and snorkeling, diving, hiking, fishing, massage, yoga...the entertaining/kitchen area is well layed out for parties and big groups... Shopping is about 7 minutes away at the Nexpa village that also has restaurants and other tourist attractions. The owners of Olavaquero are very gracious, helpful and 100% commited to satisfaction. I would strongly recommend Olavaquero and am hoping to be back there soon.

A perfect, relaxing getaway.

  • 5 of 5
I've been to Rio Nexpa several times. Always stayed in the small raised huts at the point. Olavaquero blows the doors off these places for comfort and value while still maintaining the rustic beachfront charm that I love about Rio Nexpa.

The pictures do not do this house justice. Everything was neat and clean as promised. Arranging the rental with Pat was a breeze (if you are extra nice to him he may give you the recipe to his "Cowboy Margarita").

The house is majestic. Huge master suites and bathrooms, comfy bunk room, theatre size movie viewing, internet, lots of rental boards, great pool and the best part: the lookout tower to check the surf and watch sunsets. Just steps to the sand and a short walk to the reeling surf at the point, this house stays comfortable during the hot afternoons because the whole front of it is open to the prevailing sea breeze. Perfect.

Revecca, the live-in chef, cooked us some of the best Mexican food I've had anywhere. Do yourself a favor and ask her to make her shrimp chile rellenos or barbecue a whole fish. We did both and it was a treat. It was a nice alternatives to the restaurants in town. Great breakfast as well.

All in all a wonderful trip for us. We had clean head-high surf all week. It's always a bit of a gamble going anywhere to chase surf, but Olavaquero is a sure bet for a great relaxing time, even is the surf doesn't decide to cooperate.

Wow!

  • 5 of 5
Awesome house. Awesome location. We arrived a day late due to some lost luggage and time however once we we were finally at Olavaquero, the weight came off our shoulders and we started to unwind.

The location couldn't be better - walking distance to Nexpa where there are some great little restaurants yet isolated up the beach where nobody bothers you. All you hear is the sound of the waves crashing on the beach. Time begins to stand still which is just what you want on a much needed vacation. This home is best enjoyed with at least four people. If you have to bring the kids, there is a bunk room to house them in. Personally, I would have added some sort or bar across the door to lock them in the room, but that's just me.

Caretakers Manuel and Rebecca were great though I wish I spoke a little more Spanish than I do. Rebecca prepared the best meals for breakfast and dinner and we picked up some helpful tips to use at home.

All in all, it was a great vacation and I can't wait to go back again.

Viva Olavaquero!

  • 5 of 5
What a great week. We had great surf all week and surfed the point every day. Also made some road trips to other spots just north of Nexpa. The caretaker staff was great. They made us excellent breakfast every morning after surf and it was always delicious. We went on a fishing trip with some locals from Caleta that did a great job. We caught a few fish and one of the guys speared a Gallo Fish. Manuel took us to a waterfall on a river about 10 minutes outside town, which was also a fun adventure.

Good times. Viva Olavaquero!

Best kept Mexican vacation secret!!!

  • 5 of 5
Olavaquero was more than I could have ever asked for! We planned a surf trip with 6 of our friends (house can sleep twice that amount) and the entire process of booking, planning and renting the home was completely seamless. The house was spectacular with amazing views of the Pacific. The sun sets right into the living room each night, which was a great way to finish the day. Although, I would recommend watching the sunset from the 40ft tall lookout tower. Pat (owner) was extremely helpful in providing recommendations for activities and food. Manual & Rebecca, the house caretakers were always available if we needed anything or had any questions. Rebecca makes the best breakfast, lunch, and dinner around. The community felt very safe and is a quick 5min walk into town. If you've been looking for the best kept surf spot in Mexico, then,look no further. Olavaquero & Rio Nexpa delivered on all levels. We're planning to make this an annual trip - can't wait to go back next year!

Top-notch surf retreat - I'll be back

Top-notch surf retreat - I'll be back
  • 5 of 5
This house is awesome. It's absolutely huge with a Mediterranean/Tahitian vibe, located on the north-end of Nexpa beach and very private. If you're looking for a surf retreat in a beautiful setting look no further. I'll definitely be back!

The house speaks for itself - plenty of room and amenities for your stay. The tower is by far my favorite space, giving a birds-eye view of the entire beach and view of the point-break at the river-mouth. Great spot to check the waves in the morning (with binoculars of course), and watch the sunset sipping a margarita. Rebecca and Manuel (the caretakers) made us feel like we never left home. The place was clean every day after returning from a morning surf, and a tasty breakfast always awaited our return. The brought a real family-feel to the trip. Oh, and there's a pool - KEY!

The surf here is my favorite. The house has an expansive quiver, well-suited for all different types of waves. Surfing the point is definitely the highlight of Nexpa, and there are many more spots we discovered that were enjoyable. Favorite is Hua-Hua, about a 20 minute drive north.

All in all i love this house and Nexpa, and will definitely return and recommend to anyone looking for an adventure. Thanks for the good times!
