A piece of Mexican heaven...

From the moment we arrived, and Bill and Mary welcomed us into their beautiful home, we knew the last week of our vacation was going to be very special. This is the first time that we've used VRBO and everything was as advertised. The house design was exceptional for couples sharing space and the view was stunning. The walk to the beach was short and the walk into town wasn't much further, which provided a great way to experience the local way of life and get to know the area. The steep driveway was interesting and a good way to work off your meals. Lo De Marcos offered most everything that you would need in the way of restaurants and groceries, but we had loaded up in Puerto Vallarta prior to our arrival on Bill's advice. Be sure to get fresh fish and prawns from the fish store for a special treat. There is an awesome bakery and a few meat markets as well. There is some interesting shopping in town and little commercialization, which is refreshing. Aside from the assorted rooster, donkey and dog choirs, it was very peaceful. When there was a musical event on in town, you could enjoy it from the comfort of the hot tub, as the sound travelled nicely. We were conveniently situated for short cab/bus rides to explore neighbouring towns and it was always wonderful to return to the slower, less crowded pace of Lo De Marcos. The property is a great adult retreat, but I'm not sure that I'd recommend it for small children given the hill that its on and the lovely pool has some unguarded edges. For added ambience, a daily herd of cows passed by, and Bill graciously tracked down Lenny to arrange a horseback trek in the jungle and on the beach. I'd recommend that! The closest beach was the best for bogey boarding, while still providing a safe, swimming area. The undertow wasn't really an issue even when the waves were high. There is another nice, smaller beach and restaurant about a 25 minute walk away as well. If you like walking, this is the place to be. No need to have a car around as transportation is readily available. I'd definitely recommend this property. Bill and Mary were great hosts, providing local information and options to enhance your stay. Hope you enjoy your visit to Casa Blanca as much as we did.

If you're looking for an unforgettable Mexico vacation that sits perfectly between luxury and seclusion, this is your rental!
The house was impeccable, exceeding all our expectations, and the owners accommodated our every need. We had a couple in their twenties and one in their fifties, and everyone had everything they needed for a perfect vacation
Be sure to stop at the big market by the airport for food and liquor staples on the way to the house, and ask the owners about the whole roasted chicken just down the road from the tiny store front. this was by far the best thing we ate in Mexico.

AMAZING VACATION

Our stay at Casa Blanca will be long remembered as one of the best we've ever had. The house, accomodations, views, pool & hot tub, architecture,and location we're spectacular!
The description posted on VRBO and reviews are humbly accurate, and words can't describe the overall feel you get from this architectural wonder overlooking the Pacific Ocean nestled in a paradise jungle. Very private, quiet, and relaxing. The evenings are amazing with sounds of waves breaking on beaches down below. From this location you'll see sunrises over the mountains and breathtaking sunsets every evening. The beach below is a short walk and you get feel you're the only one there, no crowds!
Location of Casa Blanca is great , a small town a few blocks away to get whatever you need, and small quaint towns with plenty of restaurants, shopping and great markets just minutes away. The owners/caretakers are not far away should you need anything,
directions, recomondations, or even help with your Spanish! Whether you've been to a vacation rental before or just tired of hotels, crowds, noise, and getting ripped off for meals etc. then you treat yourself with a stay at Casa Blanca, truely AMAZING!

We spent 6 wonderful days in Casa Blanca. The house was clean, fully equiped, and the views from the pool are amazing. It is a short walk to the beach where our little kids spend hours of fun playing in the waves, we took the whale boat trip and it was amazing!. We bought fresh fish directly from the fishermen and had some great lunches.
Bill and Mary are fabulous hosts, they were always available for answering questions or guidance on what to do, where to eat, etc..
We are looking forward to come back to Casa Blanca in the near future

Exquisite views

Four of us including 2 teenagers stayed at the lovely Casa Blanca overlooking Lo De Marcos and it's beautiful beaches and mountains for 10 glorious days this spring. The casa was clean, comfortable, and spacious - ideal for 2 families or 1 family wanting 2 sleeping areas separate and private from one another.

The views and pool were the focal points of the residence for us and the pool was kept clean and at a perfect temperature.

Bill and Mary were great hosts - Bill thank you for all the assistance whenever we needed it and all your tips on places to go and things to do.

As for Lo De Marcos, what a charming little village. Still quite authentic Mexican. If you don't mind that there is only one american restaurant (Luna - which is awesome) and you won't find a great margarita in town, then you'll love it there. But there are many great restaurants (and great margaritas) in nearby San Pancho & Sayulita (15 & 25 minute drives away respectively).
If you like horseback riding, then go with Lenny - he's a great guide and makes it a special experience.
The people of Lo De Marcos are friendly and we felt completely safe there. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to have a more authentic mexican experience than what you would get in Puerto Vallarta or Sayulita.
