CASA DEL SURFISTA is a unique and elegant home designed and built by local artist and architect Gustavo Jasso. Gustavo's use of organic materials and tropical style has turned our property into a relaxing, comfortable getaway. The house, completed in the fall of 2009, is sited on 1.5 acres with 330 feet of oceanfront. The walled property affords incredible privacy.
The main palapa is open air and includes two living rooms, two baths and a dining room and kitchen. The pool wraps around the lower living area. There is a huge bedroom loft above with its own bath. The loft has 3 kings. We have a bedroom nook off of the living room with it's own bath. We have a separate one room cabana that sleeps six and has air conditioning. Our home has one and a half acres of land and has 330 feet of beachfront in La Saladitas. It is extremely quiet and private with a wall around the entire property. Most days you will be the only one on the beach. We have created a private beach around the pool area as well.
SURFING at La Saladitas is a great place. We are one mile to the well known break La Saladitas (aka the wave machine) claiming the longest lefts in Mexico. La Saladitas is a great longboarder wave and great for kids. We also have a beach break right in front of the house if you are a shortboarder. Twenty minutes away is The Ranch. We have onsite caretaker named Paty that lives on property, and can be hired to prepare meals. Leonel her son lives on site as well and is a local surf instructor and can give lessons and take advanced groups to nearby breaks. He can also arrange for board rentals, and repairs.We suggest renting boards at Lourdes for convenience.
YOGA RETREATS can be arranged for an additional fee. We have an instructor from the US who will come down and personalize your yoga vacation. She is available at anytime with advanced notice. We have our own private beachfront platform overlooking the ocean. She also specializes in Thai massage.
All inclusive rates available. This would include all your meals, food preparation and clean up by Paty. Call or email to get rates.

WE JUST RECENTLY FINISHED OUR HOUSE IN LA SALADITA. WE PICKED THIS AREA BECAUSE THE WAVES, THE PEOPLE AND THE BEAUTY OF THE LANDSCAPE ARE ALL WONDERFUL. OUR HOUSE TOOK 2 YEARS TO BUILD. ALOT OF THOUGHT AND TIME WENT INTO ALL THE DETAILS OF OUT HOUSE. WE WANTED A VERY ORGANIC STYLE HOUSE WITH A FEELING OF RELAX AS SOON AS YOU WALK IN THE DOOR. THE DOWNSTAIRS IS VERY BRIGHT AND HAPPY. OUR UPSTAIRS LOFT HAS WOODEN FLOORS AND WITH THE PALAPA ROOF IT HAS A JAPANESE ZEN FEELING. THE CABINA IS ALL WHITE AND WITH THE AIR CONDITIONING FEELS MORE LIKE A FOUR SEASONS. WE HAVE ALL STYLES.
Pam Sweeney purchased this house in 2009

Casa Del Surfista in La Saladita was a refreshing experience. We flew into ZIH/Ixtapa airport and rented cars. Our drive to the house was only 45 minutes or so. It was a beautiful drive with gorgeous landscape. If you go in the rainy reason, be ready to have an adventure on back roads in your car but it is totally doable. We arrived at the house and were blown away. It is absolutely beautiful; the pictures are great but it is even better in person. It is all open-air and a very nice size. There is sleeping in the main house upstairs and then in the Casita next door. This is nice if you want to take an afternoon nap. Everything is very updated and in great condition. The furnishings are also very attractive. We hired Patty who lives on site to do the cooking and cleaning. This was the best decision we ever made. It was very affordable and the food was delicous! It was amazing to wake up to a perfectly made, authentic, healthy breakfast. She also made us lunch and dinner everyday. This is an absolute must. It takes the stress out of going to the grocery, cleaning the food, and cooking. The pool was beautiful, ocean spectacular, and surf amazing. We also made some day trips to Troncones, The Ranch, Ixtapa, and Ixtapa Island for snorkeling and fishing. There is so much to do in this area and it is very safe. The locals are also very nice. We did some excursions through Alejandro in Troncones. His business is across from Present Moment Yoga/Spa. He is the best. We had a wonderful time and recommend it for all.
After a long winter in the Rockies, this place was deluxe. We came with two families, with additional teenagers, and Casa Del Surfista exceeded our wildest dreams! The open-air layout, pool, excellent surfing both right down the beach as well as in La Saliditas, made this a trip to remember. The food was exquisitely prepared and served fresh daily, with local fruits and vegetables, meats, and was done so inexpensively. This place could be a romantic getaway for two couples, a yoga retreat for 10 gals, or, as we found out a wonderful vacation for families. The sunsets and strolling along the beach, beautiful!!
CASA DEL SURFISTA is a truly unique experience and possibly the most amazing house I’ve stayed in on this planet. We visited on my friend’s bachelor surf/adventure trip and stayed in awe our entire visit of the magnificent architecture, canvas of beautiful nightly stars (since no street lights obscure the view), rejuvenating ocean sounds, and blissful ocean wind. This place truly takes your breath away as you relax and marvel at it. A few reviews have complained about things that didn’t bother us. I chose to focus on the amazing ambiance.
Our trip was planned around proximity to the famous surf break called LAS SALADITAS (aka “the machine”) and Casa Del Surfista is about a 5 minute drive to Lourdes Bar and Grill which is the best access point for this famous surf break. Each day we really enjoyed surfing at Lourdes and then escaping back to our inspiring haven at Casa Del Surfista. There was a surf break in front of Casa Del Surfista but we spent a majority of our time surfing at Lourdes.
Our SUV rental fell through but we were still able to navigate to and from Casa Del Surfista in our mini-van (ha-ha-ha, we found it funny to be in one). If you go during the rainy season I would strongly recommend a SUV; we were there just after the rainy season ended.
The beach at Casa Del Surfista is very private, the entire week we stayed I think we only saw 4 other people on the beach (2 boys fishing a mile down the beach and father/son swimming briefly in the distance). It was a pleasant change from the East Coast US where you can rarely be on the beach without seeing dozens of people at any given time.
The caretaker and her family were very helpful and pleasant and keep the place beautiful and clean. We opted to have Patty cook a meal a day (either lunch or dinner) and every meal was delicious!
I arrived stressed out from my IT job but after a week of daily surfing, daily yoga, and recharging at Casa Del Surfista I came home an absolutely relaxed man!
One day I hope to return and with my family, they would also love the adventure!
Some things about Casa Del Surfista were definitely 5-star . . . other things were 2-Star. All-in-all, I'll give it 3 stars. The palapa and its setting are beautiful, relaxing, private and scenic. Also the caretaker and her family were very nice and helpful, and we enjoyed the meals that they prepared.
That being said, the description of the property is very misleading. The online description states that the property has a two-bedroom sleeping loft, an additional bedrooms downstairs in the Palapa, and a bedroom in the enclosed casita. . . this is simply not accurate. There is one bedroom in the casita, and one giant sleeping loft in the palapa. That's all. This property does not work for two families where both sets of parents want privacy.
Also, please appreciate that this is true out-door-living. There are all sorts of criters living in the thatch ceiling. So, you need to be OK with bat and lizard poo being all over the place. And by "all over the place", I mean just that; bedding, pillows, couches, etc. are all in the target zone. This includes the master bed in the enclosed casita.
You should also know that the beach in front of the palapa does not have any sand. The closest sand beach is in Saladitas. And, while Saladitas is only about 1.5 miles away, it's about a 15 minute drive on the dirt road.
I had the pleasure of staying at Casa la Surfista this past February and have also stayed there numerous times in the past. This property is superb in every way. The food, the views, the privacy and the relaxing atmosphere all lend themselves to the perfect surf vacation. Because the main house is open air you feel like you are living outside the entire time and are able to enjoy the warm ocean breeze and the large adjacent casita with 5 beds and a bath allows you to be inside if you desire. The style and design of the house are as good as any high end resort but better because you have them all to yourself. Relax by the pool, nap in the shade under the pallapa, take a long run up the empty beach or hit the ocean for the best wave you’ve ever surfed. You can surf at the main break which is about 5 minutes away or surf right in front of the house. The beach is also great for kids. My kids spent hours this spring break playing and boogy boarding in the waves. After a long day of playing in the ocean there’s nothing better than getting back to the house to a delicious and healthy meal cooked by Patty the friendly caretaker who lives there. She cooks healthy fresh authentic Mexican meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner if you choose. It was truly a great vacation to have someone grocery shop, cook and take care of the dishes. I would recommend this beautiful Mexican oasis to anyone looking for a great surf spot and place to relax at the end of a great day!
Casa Surfista is amazing!! It is so comfortable, beautiful, clean and its right on the beach which is also incredibly beautiful. The open air feel with the palapa is like paradise and I loved being able to hear and see the ocean at all times. There is great surfing right out front or you can walk down the beach to the point. The caretaker makes delicious healthy food and the privacy is great. The house is perfect for families but also feels very romantic, I love the decor and the feel. I hope to go back every year!!
We have a beach break in front of the house that is always empty. We are 1 mile to LaSalditas point break. We have a volleyball net set up at the house.
