Heavenly, private and right on the beach!
Don't bother looking at any other homes to rent in the area - this is a gem and can't wait to go back. So happy friends had recommended it. The house has everything you need with the major plus of a car, airport pick up and drop off, and the two most lovely locals to take care of you: Rosa and Gilberto.
Rosa and Gilberto
Our mediocre travel Spanish was plenty good enough to get by (and they understood a bit more English than our Spanish so no real language barrier). And, they are both SO SWEET. Rosa is an amazing cook and will plan meals with you everyday (don't miss her chicken mole, baja fish tacos, and chile relleno!). She kept the house spotless and even did our laundry! Gilberto made killer fresh lime margaritas, ready for us every afternoon. He also kept the garden and patios swept clean and made sure the pool was crystal clear.
Beach AND a pool
My husband and I both surf so didn't think we'd use the pool but we were in it everyday. The ocean was really warm so it was a wonderful way to cool off. The Burros main surf break was a short paddle up (5 min. with our longboards) but you could also walk. We didn't hit a great swell so a few days we drove 5 min. to La Lancha surf break and enjoyed that a bit better. But if you didn't feel like getting in a car, Burros would do just fine. The house's beach was very clean and secluded. We only saw a few people early in the AM and out for walks at sunset. I laid in the hammock under the house's private palapa by the ocean all afternoon and red books. No hassles of vendors or other people. Hard to find that anywhere
Plenty of room for a gang but we were perfectly comfortable - the house did not seem overwhelming with just the 2 of us (although 3 bedrooms went unused). Comfortable beds, beautiful mexican tile throughout, TV (didn't think we'd use but surprisingly the SF Giants were in the World Series!). No issues with plumbing, electricity, etc. Note: a given in the tropics, bring bug repellant for sunrise/sunset.
We were so happy at the house we didn't get out much. We drove to Sayulita (a little too touristy for us but lots of shops and restaurants). Punta de Mita closer, smaller with shops/rest., PV not far if you need more action. Close to airport a big plus
Kathy's a pleasure to deal with and makes sure you have all details about the house before you get there. We felt perfectly safe in the house and gated community. For a worry free trip, book this!
