Puerto Vallarta House Rental Photos and Description

Exotic Oceanfront Beach Retreat; Casa Blanca

If you are looking for a private beach retreat that offers romance and adventure, Los Chonchos beach is the location for you. Casa Blanca is an open air Palapa style home located in Eco-Preserve MarSelva, also know as, 'Chonchos' to the locals, it lies just one hour south of Puerto Vallarta Mexico on gorgeous Bandaras Bay. To get to our unique property, water taxi's leave twice daily from Boca de Tomatlan and take you along the beautiful coast, stopping at seaside villages in route to Los Chonchos beach. If you are looking for a secluded and romantic vacation away from the hustle and bustle of city life, look no further.

Our oceanfront palapa home overlooks one of three pristine beaches offering peace, quiet, and beauty in every direction. Casablanca has one bedroom with a queen bed, one full bathroom, full kitchen, dining area, great room with comfy overstuffed rattan sofa and chairs. The expanded deck with lounge chairs and cushions overlooks the ocean and beach below offering a great place to siesta on the hammock, whale watch or sunbathe. The beach is a one minute walk from the casa where you can hop on our two person Hobie kayak for an ocean paddle or grab the snorkel gear to explore the many species of multi colored fish.

Whale watching right from the deck is incredible from Nov.thru March, expect dolphin and manta ray sightings too. Swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, hiking, bird watching, sunbathing, yoga, exploring or just to get away for some much needed rest and relaxation........exotic paradise awaits you!

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Once in a lifetime experience"

Want to have a real getaway? Want to really experience Mexico? Want to see wildlife up close and not pay a fortune? This is the place to go. Complete serenity, romance and seclusion. My husband and I just spent a week in the prettiest place we've ever seen. We were completely amazed at the beauty and serenity that Casa Blanca offered us. We spent our 21 st anniversary lying on the secluded beach watching the whales in the distance. The sunsets cast colors that keep you captivated. Be prepared to be off the grid and live simply. The people in the town of Chimo that is located a 45 minute hike away are the most gracious, generous, friendly and accommodating. The small grocery store had all that was needed for the weeks worth of groceries. The small restaurants are filled with friendly faces and great food. I felt completely safe and never worried about our belongings. The water taxi to the palapa is enjoyable and you get to see several resort areas before you get to the secluded beach of Los Chonchos. We will definitely be going back. There's so much to explore. Go on a hike and pick your own wild avocados, mangos and lemons. Go fishing with the local fisherman or just lay on the beach and listen to the waves crash. The palapa is decorated with beautiful furnishings and has all the needs of home. We found ourself forgetting what time it was and even what day it was and we really didn't care. As you can see I could go on and on about this paradise. The owner was very easy to talk to and very informative. Thanks to the owner I had an anniversary that will always be one of my favorites! You will not regret staying in Casa Blanca, just be sure you stay more than 3 days to really enjoy all that it offers!

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5
As a middle-aged couple we do not look for resorts or large tourist attractions when we travel, and Casa Blanco answered that call. It was rustic, yet comfortable and offered us a wonderful daily pace that we set ourselves. The photos are exactly what you get. The palapa was clean and well stocked with towels, linens, and kitchen wares.
Debbie answered all of our questions prior to departure, and even gave us contacts for our arrival. The area is to die for with plenty of culture, views, wildlife, and freedom to explore. We could not have been happier with our choice - and will certainly return many times more.

Honeymoon in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We had such a lovely stay in Casa Blanca. Certainly a once in a lifetime experience, I don't think that we have ever been so relaxed in our lives!

When we arrived in PV we stayed at the hotel Posada De Roger, and while the location and the restaurant next door was excellent, the bed (3 in room) were all rock hard. I wouldn't stay there again. We did stay at Casa Tukari the night before we flew out, and I highly recommend it. It was quiet, and the bed was soft and they were so nice!

We did as Debbie suggested and got all our supplies including the tequila at the Leys Supermarketo downtown, which was about a 2 mile walk north from Posada De Roger. We were concerned we had bought too many supplies, but the helper at Boca de Tomatlan just got out his wheelbarrow and carted our stuff to the shore to wait for the water taxi. It was not problem off loading as well as there was about 4 people on shore waiting for us at Los Chonchos when we arrived.

We did take the hike into Chimo, and enjoyed lunch at Arturos. Be careful on the walk there, its tricky climbing and I wouldnt take kids over the trail.

Another day we used their new red sea tandem kayak and had a fantastic lunch at Chimos (there are only 2 thatched roofs in Chimo which is how we found it).

We loved our stay there, and would highly recommend it for anyone wanting to get off the grid, and just truly relax.

Perfect spot for a "do nothing" get away...

Perfect spot for a "do nothing" get away...
  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were looking for somewhere to enjoy a quick (1 week) get away, where we could just kick back and do virtually nothing. Casa Blanca proved to be just the ticket. The fact that it is "off the grid" and far removed from the mainstream tourist areas, makes it the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle everyday life and avoid the crowds and busy streets found in the typical tourist zones.
Casa Blanca itself is a beautiful little Palapa with all the comforts of home and everything you need to be self contained. It's location, a stones through from the ocean, make the deck, the great room, (and even the bed) great vantage points for watching the daily migration of pelicans, whales and dolphins cruising back and forth along the coast. We spent most of our time just laying back enjoying the beautiful views of the ocean, reading, and playing games.
We chose to cook most all of our own meals and make use of what Casa Blanca has to offer. You can pick up groceries in either Puerto Vallarta on the way in, or make the 45 minute hike over to Chimo (a small fishing village), where you can get most of what you need for creating your own authentic mexican meals (note: grocery options are somewhat limited, and you might want to brush up on your Spanish, as no one speaks English in Chimo). There are also a couple of small family run restaurants in Chimo, where you can enjoy fresh seafood, tortillas and cervesa, if you want a break from doing your own cooking. Alternatley, you can catch the morning water taxi back into Yelapa (a slightly bigger village, with bigger stores) where you can go on a hike, grab lunch, pick up groceries, then return to Chonchos on the afternoon water taxi.
All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our time at Casa Blanca and Chonchos beach. If you're looking for a very quiet, relaxing get away, off the beaten path, it's definitely worth a look. We hope to make a return visit next year. Thank you Debbie and Dennis for sharing your little piece of paradise.

Off the grid

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I loved our stay at Casa Blanca! We stayed for a week. We have traveled a lot and this location was by far the most off the grid. No internet, no newspapers, nothing to let you know what's going on in the world. It was wonderful to just relax and be with my hubby. The Casa is very nice and relaxing. We came in on the water taxi with other couples and there were both very disappointed with there palapas. One was a dump it was Lappa Lappa sp? and I felt bad that the owner did not tell them the condition of the palapa. Debbie's pics are exactly what it looks like. It is beautiful!! The loung chairs are so awesome to just stare at the ocean. We saw whales and dolphins. We always had hot water when needed. Plenty of light from the lights they have. We had flash lights in case. The hammock was so wonderful! We loved relaxing and reading in it. Kitchen great, fridge/freezer great. There are a couple people who live there year around or 5 months and they are super nice. Heather and Henry run the restaurant and are hard workers and very helpful. The snorkeling was better than we excepted but the water/waves can be very rough so some days you can't go out. I want to be clear so everyone knows what to expect. This is on a beach in a jungle. The waves are crashing on the rocks right outside your bed so it is loud sometimes. I saw giant spiders on the path. The water taxi drops you off on the beach not a dock so you need to jump off. ( I saw several people fall all the way in the water while getting off) there is no way to get any groceries unless you hike a good 45min up and over a big hill to a village where no one speaks English. So know what you are getting into. Plan what to bring, ask Debbie she is fantastic to work with. We LOVED our trip! The beach was amazing! We loved spending time with and meeting new people. We loved the hike (once was enough) and Casa Blanca is a wonderful place to relax and connect. We want to come back for our 50th bdays! Thank you Debbie for opening up your wonderful Casa and helping us have an amazing trip where we could relax!!! If you love the beach and want to get away you will love this Casa!!

Leave technology behind and enjoy the open rooms and incredible views of Casa Blanca!

  • 5 of 5
From your departure from Puerto Vallarata by boat until you hit the beach at your palapa you are in a decompression zone! Incredible views, ONLY the needed comforts of home (lounge chair, fridge and gas stove for cooking) in an open air thatched roofed house (palapa) walking distance to two beaches - one quite secluded - my girlfriend and I loved it! I'm sure she'll be talking about it for months to come. All that and interact with only the number of people you truly want to interact with. Bring EVERYTHING you need because once you hit the beach you'll question your desire to want to leave until you have to.

5 Days of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
We are two women over 60 who needed a break from a busy urban life. We purchased two huge bags of food from Ley's in PV (including one case of beer) and schlepped it to the water taxi. Once we unpacked, we did almost nothing except bask, read, play games, and birdwatch. The ocean is about 30 yards beyond your bare feet. The jungle is behind. To note: hiking is steep and rocky and we felt completely unnecessary! Kayaking - let's just say we crashed the kayak on our first expedition and didn't attempt it again. Next time I would get help from the "guys" in order to pick the "right wave" on which to enter the bay. Nor did we swim or snorkel...the water was too rough and entry (like kayaking) can be tricky. But who cared...the place is gorgeous. You can contract with a local person to cook for your party at a reasonable price. Or you can go "simple" as we did...bring plenty of papaya, pineapple, and veggies (and tasty tequila) with you. If you run out of food, you have to water taxi to Yalapa, nearby village which will take up 4 hours of your special time. Our neighbor would not go back as she needed more stimulation and loved to shop.
Shopping list: hiking shoes, lots of beer and snacks, good binocs, forget about your electronic gadgets (except e-readers)- nice time to unplug...headlamps as light is minimal after dark.
Being completely away from civilization is not for everybody, but we loved every minute and are glad we stayed for 5 days instead of 3. My wife's face actually looked different after the third day - the stress was gone and she feels as if the (a lapsed Catholic) felt her spirituality for the first time in decades.
Nod to Debbie and Dennis - they're the best.

The water taxi stops twice daily. You can hop on the boat in the morning and spend a day in a nearby village for about $10 per person for the water taxi. A great hike is a two walk to the small village Chimo where you can buy groceries or have lunch at a seaside restaurant.
