BEACHFRONT HOME, HANDCRAFTED FROM TROPICAL WOOD, JACUZZI, PALAPA & ROOF TERRACE

Puerto Escondido House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, jacuzzi and out door shower,sleeps 4

Casa Marco is the perfect excuse for abandoning the world and letting it make do on its own while you enjoy this little corner of paradise. Casa Marco is that part of life (which we have all imagined at some time) in which time flows serenely in a small community of fishermen surrounded by marvellous beaches and picturesque places.

Casa Marco is on Zicatela Beach, the most private Eden one can imagine: a rare privilege nowadays… And like any paradise worth its salt, Casa Marco was created for just one couple, but as whim would have it there’s room for two, since it has two bedrooms.

Its construction pays homage to parota (a tropical wood resembling teak), bejuco (a vine similar to rattan), and the palm leaf (of which palapas, or palm-thatched shelters, are made).

The bedrooms, kitchen and living room are roofed with concrete domes, but only the palm thatching is visible from the exterior, thus creating a practical, aesthetic, and luminous effect, while keeping the interior coo

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered

Greetings Katrinka,



Just a quick note to let you and Mr. Gil know how much we enjoyed our stay at Casa Marco. We were very touched by the personnel welcome and warmth we felt on arriving. The flowers and all the vegetarian food items were all very, very thoughtful and of course meeting Marco instantly made us feel like we were 'old friends'.



The Casa itself was perfect for our needs and the nearness to the beach was a special treat as we went playing in the waves usually twice a day.



To top it off we all fell in love with Ade - and enjoyed our many conversations with her throughout the afternoons. Thanks for the wonderful menu suggestions. It turned out that we only had one official cooking lesson from Adelina - the best Publano chilies ever - but she was usually around to make suggestions or answer any questions about the many other dishes that we experimented with.



...so we'll keep our fingers crossed that our destiny will bring us back to Casa Marco again.



Warmest regards ... wayne

PROPERTY IS NOT 10 METERS FROM THE BEACH

  • 1 of 5
we rented this property thinking it was on the beach.the information on the website says it is 10 meters from the beach.the casa marcos is behind a restaurant and across the road from the beach.the only way you can even see the beach is on the third floor playapa.when you look at the website it is very vague as to where exactly the house is .my advice to other travellers is if the website does not show you views from each floor,there probably is no view.we made the mistake of talking to the owners rep andthey told us what we wanted to hear.the website does not show the back end of a beach restaurant on the first floor and does not show the roof of a beach restaurant on the second floor,it only shows a partial ocean view off the third floor.does this sound like a house 10 meters from the beach? the thing that makes a couple from canada so disapointed is we e mailed many times with the owners rep trying to make sure it was on the beach.it didnt work.we left as soon as we could find a place on the beach(stayed 2 nights).the website should include the views from all three levels and that would get people there that wanted to be there,not mislead people like us.no refund for the week.too bad for us that flew 8 hours to get here.i truly hope this helps other travellers to really check close before they send money.there is lots of places here that are really nice

Owner's Response: The beach is measured where the sand begins, not the water or waves. No house is constructed ten meters from the water (unless on platforms), when the tide rises, the house would flood. The stretch of sand beside a sea, or the shore of the sea is a beach. Casa Marco is ten meters or less from the beach, not on the beach itself. Hopefully this point is once again clear as it has always been stated as such.

So sorry the misunderstanding between the meters and the view of the beach has occurred. Yes, there exists a palapa of one of the colorful restaurants between Casa Marco and the beach entrance, and until now this has not presented any complaints, considering it is mentioned in the Homeaway Property section on location very specifically. The whole beach and the sea stretches out after this small crossing giving way to a lovely and open view.

Of course, images of the view from all levels of the house will be taken and shown, as well as the review of another Canadian guest who recently rented Casa Marco just only a week before, and who understood the exact location in reference to the beach. Regarding the money refund, no reimbursement could be made as only an initial deposit of 50% was given, and the remainder was never payed 10 days previous to arrival as stated in HomeAway regulations, gladly this would have been refunded. All calls are always more than welcome in order to clarify and give details on Casa Marco as has been done in the past. Thank you.
