CASA PELICANOS: OCEANFRONT HOME: BEACH VACATION PARADISE

Lo De Marcos House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Casa Pelicanos is your dream beach vacation home, just steps from one of the great hidden beaches of the Mexican Riviera, Playa Venados. Our lovely home is just 45 minutes from the Puerto Vallarta airport and minutes from the town of Lo de Marcos. Step out onto the veranda and see the breathtaking panorama of ocean in front of you and the lush semi-tropical forest to the side. The air is soft, the scenery breathtaking and the ever-present sound of the ocean is ultimately relaxing.

You can whale watch from the veranda, relax while you see the pelicans soar over the house or take a dip in the pristine warm water. There is a small outdoor restaurant at the edge of the beach where you can enjoy a meal or a cold beverage. At night, take in the stars and the fireflies while you stroll on the beautiful beach. Casa Pelicanos is a refuge from our all too busy lives and your stay here will be truly relaxing and refreshing.

Accommodations at Casa Pelicanos are aesthetically beautiful and comfortable with authentic art and furnishings. There are two levels, each of which is self-contained with full kitchens and separate entrances. The upstairs consists of three bedrooms (2 queens/1 king) and three bathrooms while the downstairs has two bedrooms (2 queens) and two bathrooms. Rent them separately or together. Every room in the house has a ceiling fan to provide a comfortable environment.

Lo de Marcos is a small charming town, which is not yet a tourist destination. There are a couple of restaurants, grocery stores, pharmacy and of course a fabulous beach with an adjoining estuary with great bird watching. Check out the town square which is the social hub: there are often fun local events.

For fine dining and shopping you can go down to San Francisco, which is 20 minutes south of Lo de Marcos or drive another 5 minutes further to Sayulita. 15 minutes to the north is La Penita, with banks, ATM’s and a fun Thursday market selling arts & crafts along with deliciously fresh fruits and vegetables.

There are taxis available to and from the airport and also in Lo de Marcos and upon request. If you really want to explore we recommend a rental car which is available at the airport or in Sayulita.

We chose this location for the extraordinary coastal view, proximity to the beach as well as the quiet location. You can always drive down to Sayulita for some shopping and nightlife but I don't care to deal with loud music or partying when I want to sleep and only hear the sound of the surf.

Casa Pelicanos is such a beautiful home and much care has been taken with the art and furnishings to make it feel like you are walking into a place of comfort and serenity. The kitchen is very well equipped and there is plenty of space in the living room or the veranda to read or just hang out. Just walk down our driveway and the pristine beach is only steps away. Whenever I stay at Casa Pelicanos time slows down and my vacation provides the sense of relaxation and renewal I was hoping for.

MORE THAN I EXPECTED!

  • 5 of 5
Casa Pelicanos was THE perfect vacation getaway for my partner and I. After working hard all year I had eagerly awaited this vacation. I had heard about Casa Pelicanos from many good friends who have stayed there, even seen pictures, but I was blown away by the beauty of the house and the secluded beach!
The house is very tastefully decorated and super clean! Comfortable beds, spacious kitchen, great bathrooms, a large living room, windows all around for a view to die for. The house is cool and comfortable and you are lulled to sleep each night with the sound of the ocean waves. One of the highlights of the house is the veranda...the ocean view is breathtaking! I loved having my morning tea out on the veranda, watching the pelicans fly overhead and the little birds in the palm trees...and I even saw whales swim by! It felt good to have house caretakers in Lo De Marcos that we could call if we needed them if a house issue came up, which it didn't.
The beach below the house is quiet and sweet. We went to nearby beaches but preferred to stay at "our beach". We swam everyday, the water was divine. If you want to body surf, go to Chacala beach, then have fish tacos and a Pina Colada on the beach.
The town of Lo De Marcos is so charming! The people are friendly and the restaurants are good. I loved the slow pace of life, the family feel, seeing multi-generations sitting on their porches in the pleasant evenings. The locals were friendly and kind with me as I struggled with my Spanish. (I was glad for my fluent partner, though!)
The owners were extremely helpful and have a very informative visitor's guide with restaurant recommendations, day trips to try etc. We braved a 2 hour trip on a bumpy, dirt road to Agua Termal, a beautiful, refreshing hot springs with 29 individuals pools that the owners recommended. We ventured out some days to nearby towns to shop and sight-see and would come "home" to Casa Pelicanos. The house has "good energy" and I can tell the owners love it.
I would highly recommend this house for anyone wanting a quiet, peaceful vacation, as well as a cultural experience. There is even internet! I would love to come back with my family since there are 3 spacious bedrooms, and a 2 bedroom house below.
Words don't really do Casa Pelicanos justice. You should just go and experience it for yourself! You won't regret it. I loved it and can't wait to go back!

PARADISE IN MEXICO!!

  • 5 of 5
I have traveled to many places around the world over the last 30 years and Casa de Pelicanos is one of my all time favorites! The house is even more beautiful than the photos! The beds are so comfortable and the house is spotless. The beach is right there and the views are spectacular. Listening to the sound of the waves helped me sleep the best I have in years. I recommend Casa de Pelicanos to family and friends as a MUST visit. It is relaxing and peaceful but close enough to town to find excitement too. The town of Lo De Marcos is a sweet, genuine town with families and local, yummy food too! We enjoyed Arselia's restaurant and local tacos at Trini and Joel's. Fishing with Mauricio is great...go to the beach in town and ask for him! The market in La Penita is perfect for supporting local vendors and artisans as well as the fresh fish market. We LOVE it here and we WILL be back. You will be so happy you chose Casa de Pelicanos.

A HONEYMOON IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
Casa Pelicanos, is a slice of paradise. Three years ago we took four of our kids (ages 15 - 21) to Lo De Marcos and found this beautiful home. All the kids loved Casa Pelicanos, Lo De Marcos, exploring the beaches, visiting other communities, and swimming in the warm water. They each found the area met their needs in different ways, and Michelle and I, loved our first blended family trip, watching our kids play together.

This year Michelle and I got married. We decided the perfect spot to have our Honeymoon would be Casa Pelicanos. The hardest part was explaining to the kids that this trip, they would not be coming.

This home, on a private and secluded beach, is perfect for those celebrating their love for each other. Mornings with coffee on the deck over looking the ocean, days on the beach, afternoon Margarita hour, and the evening, falling asleep to the waves pounding on the beach. While town, people and things to do, were just a short car ride away, we found ourselves on this trip just finding each other, in this slice of paradise.

I would recommend Casa Pelicanos for families and romantic get aways - you will not be disappointed.

FABULOUS FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Casa Pelicanos was absolutely wonderful. More than we expected. The house was huge and fit the 10 of us perfectly as we rented the entire house. Everyone had a bedroom, which was a first. Five children (ages 11-15) and 5 adults (one elderly at 81 years of age and he had no problem walking to the beach). Very quiet -- no noisy neighbors. Lots of space for the kids to run around.

The view and sound of the waves was incredible (the pictures don't do it justice!). The beach really was perfect — kids figured out the waves and were able to boogie board. The second week, the waves were a bit quieter and they were able to snorkel and see a lot of fish-life, and coral. We felt like the beach was ours and were often the only people on it. Truly, a busy day would be 10 other people on the entire beach. My dad met the local "old guys" so would have beers with them on the beach. We walked past the "pelican rocks" to the left of the house when the tide was out.

We rented a Suburban and visited many local towns and beaches. Lots of space to park the Suburban at the home as well.

Kids learned to surf at Sayulita. We went there three times for surfing. But it seemed so crazy to go to such a crowded place — beach and streets — that we would go later in the day, after 2:30, spending time at "our beach" . Also went to a totally empty amazing beach Playa del Naranjo, was well as our usual Bucerias. Visited the market on Thursday morning in La Penita which was well worth the visit.

Kitchen was super well equipped. We went grocery shopping to Mega in Bucerias.

Perfect home for a large family vacation. We have already recommended it to friends!

PARADISE EVERYDAY!!

  • 5 of 5
We spent ten days at Casa Pelicanos and had a fantastic time. The house was very comfortable and well-appointed. The views from the upstairs veranda were breathtaking. The ongoing sounds of the ocean provided restful nights and peaceful days.
We took advantage of the great recommendations given to us by Barbara and Janet - Arcelia's Palapa Restaurant, Luna's Italian, Trini's tacos, Lilo's on the beach, and trips to La Penita, Ricon de Guayabitos, and Sayulita. One afternoon, Ingrid came by to give us massages. This experience was relaxing, joyful and rejuvenating. We will definitely recommend this vacation spot to our friends.
