CHARMING VILLA ON PEACEFUL GATED PENINSULA

Platanitos Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms / 3 Full Bathrooms, Sleeps 8 (incl. pull out sofas)

The “Chalata' is a great fig tree that spreads its canopy over the elevated deck of this lovely villa on Punta El Custodio. The spacious deck provides ocean views, a gas grill and space to entertain while enjoying the mild sea breeze. Behind the deck is a palapa covered great room with a full kitchen, inside dining and a sitting area. A sofa bed and a full bath are provided for additional guests.

The air-conditioned downstairs includes 2 large bedrooms with en suite baths as well as a comfortably furnished living room with a sofa bed, perfect to accommodate overflow guests or children. Great for getting away from the parties upstairs, to do a little reading or watch a DVD.

The villa is steps away from the beautiful community pool at the edge of the oceanfront bluff. Stairs lead to a small beach at the bottom. A short swim or wade takes you to an amazing undeveloped 12 mile long gentle swimming beach and sea turtle nesting sanctuary. Paradise for body surfers and nature lovers!

Unexpectedly Awesome!

I agree with all of the other reviews on this site. Casa Charlata was perfect for us. We were traveling with another adult couple and the layout of the house was great. If you wanted to be together, the entire upstairs--indoor / outdoor kitchen and dining was a perfect place to enjoy company. If you wanted solitude, head downstairs to the cool & quiet bedrooms. The gate house staff were exceptionally helpful and had everything we needed. We purchased the meal plan and couldn't have been happier. I would definitely recommend it. The food is fresh, really well prepared and abundant. We didn't want for anything.
From a size perspective, Charlata was great for 4 adults. It could have accommodated 2 small children, but I wouldn't do more than that. There are other properties within the community that might be better suited for large families or groups. If you're traveling with a big group, I would definitely recommend renting a few of the properties. They are all close to one another and the community pool and nearby beach are a great place to meet up.
The community is pretty secluded--as mentioned by other reviewers--but there are two great towns within a 30 minute drive in opposite directions. Zacualpan, mentioned by another reviewer has everything you need and San Blas is even bigger. Neither is over-run by tourists, so you get an authentic Mexican experience. All of the nearby beaches are great--not too crowded, but have everything you want for a beach outing.
The house and grounds were meticulously cared for. The showers were hot and strong. The food was outstanding. The community pool was great. I can't recommend this place enough if you are looking to enjoy a relaxing vacation in Mexico that is luxurious except for the cost. Go!!

casa chalata #288549

Casa Chalata was absolutely excellent. Combined with the food/service package it was the best vacation spot my friends and I have been to. The landscaping in the enclave is beautiful ! The Playa Tortugas just steps away was like having your own deserted tropical beach ! Totally relaxing.
The house was really comfy especially the upstairs kitchen/patio .
The food service was more than we expected . Plenty of everything and with a nicely varied menu.
Cynthia our chef was simply wonderful and sweet. Ismael the concierge was always available to provide help with everything from tours to a selection of wines.
Thanks to everyone on staff and also to jeffery the owner for all his tips on the area. Hope to go back soon.
We're telling all our friends to check it out and would certainly recommend this Casa to all.

Fantastic property, serene and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5
We LOVED our stay at Chalata in Platanitos! The house is in a lovely gated community on a cliffside overlooking the ocean. It felt very, very safe. The house is well-appointed and well-designed, bedrooms downstairs stay cool and dark and the upstairs terrace and kitchen area are roomy, sunny and bright. The staff is considerate and professional, and the grounds and pool are very lovely. Property was clean and well-maintained.

A few notes:

1. The meal plan is an excellent value, we always had enough to eat and drink and snack - and we didn't have to spend any time shopping or cooking. Zintia made us gorgeous local food - including ceviche using fish we caught on an excursion arranged by Ismael (the caretaker/property manager). The staff even packed us a picnic for our beach excursion days.
2. The house is not near nightlife: if you need that, this is the wrong place for you (we did have some wonderful parties with our small group at the house - it is an excellent gathering space with the wonderful terrace!).
3. Definitely bring or rent a car when you come here, unless you are seeking solely solitude and do not intend to travel much. Not much within walking distance. Reco: get a quote on car insurance ahead of time or find out if it's covered by your personal insurance co. or credit card. Rental car insurance is expensive in Mexico.
4. The house is excellently situated over the ocean, very easy walk to the small beach in Platanitos where there are small stores and a few restaurants. We also did wonderful beach day trips to Sayulita, Playa los Cocos and Playa las Tortugas. You can body-surf, swim and sun within walking distance of the property.
5. The way the house is built is great for couples vacationing together or families with children. Several families could rent adjoining villas and have a wonderful experience in this community, sharing the pool.
6. The pool is really lovely and was never crowded, even during Christmas week.

Highly recommended, excellent vacation property!

Everything from the gate of entry to the compound was impressive. The people that work to maintain the compound and help the visitors are also great. The house is just steps away from the ocean. Walk down a 1 minute path and you are at the top of a rustic well designed staircase to the beach. The house layout was good for relaxing while others are in the detached kitchen and patio if they wanted to be more lively. If you want to go fishing by boat or horseback riding on the beach, just contact the front office and they can set all that up for you. The boat people for fishing were on time and really nice, and the horse back riding group the same. I really relaxed and had a great trip overall.

Thanks again!

The Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5
The pictures of this beautiful place, while lovely, don't begin to show how gorgeous this home and the property surrounding it really are. I was blown away by how secluded and private the compound was, and by how excellent we were treated while we were visiting. The people who work on the grounds are so friendly, and the massive amounts of food they cooked for us was excellent! I received two wonderful hour-long massages during my week long stay, both from Zinthia, and they were amazing. There are plenty of fun activities to do off the grounds too, like fishing and horseback riding, but it was just as nice soaking up sun by the beautiful pool that overlooks the ocean! Even though we were tucked away, there were amenities very close by if needed; Zacualpan was the nearest little town, and we went in to dine out, pick up groceries, and grab some delicious ice cream! Oh, and there was a great little market right up the street for any little things you want to pick up (and their chicken tortas were awesome!). There really is no need to even leave the grounds if you don't want to; everything you need can be provided just by asking the friendly staff at the gatehouse. You don't have to clean on this vacation; the staff was always there to clean up before you could even get to it! There was wi-fi service available at the gatehouse as well, so if you need to check email, it's no problem. The house and grounds are extremely well taken care of; all of the plants surrounding the homes are so beautiful, you really feel like you are in a little paradise. I highly recommend this vacation home; it was the best, most relaxing vacation I have ever taken! PS: take the boat ride and do some fishing and whale watching! It was an awesome experience!
