Overview

Rincon de Guayabitos House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Casa Fortuna is a newly remodeled villa on 1/2 acre of beach front solitude. Located 55 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta airport, transportation to La Penita de Jaltemba is easy by car, taxi or bus. Casa Fortuna is reminiscent of a an old hacienda, open to the beach on the west and sitting behind privacy walls on the other three sides to create a private courtyard with heated pool, surrounded by coconut palms, limes, banana and pineapples, bird of paradise,hibiscus, bougainvillaea and other colorful tropical plants as well as parrots, squirrels and iguanas. Enjoy watching the gentle ocean, spectacular sunsets, and migrating whales from the wide verandas, float or play volleyball in your own private pool or lounge on the beach and swim in the warm, calm waters of Jaltemba Bay. Enjoy a professional massage in the privacy of your own villa. We can arrange for a masseuse, or manicure and pedicure at your convenience. This is total relaxation!

With the addition of a second floor in 2006, Casa Fortuna boasts 4 bedrooms (three with large, comfortable KING beds and one with two twin beds) and 3 baths, making it a perfect retreat for friends and families. The first floor has a fully equipped kitchen, a living area with comfortable sofa and chairs for lounging and table for dining, and one Suite with King bed and adjoining bath. A breezy veranda, perfect for morning coffee or afternoon cocktails, runs the entire length of the house on both levels, offering spectacular views of the beach, swaying palms, and the ocean.

The newly built second floor is tiled throughout, with three bedrooms, two Master Suites with king-sized beds, and the third with twin beds, that can be joined to make a king. You will not believe the ocean views that greet you each morning, when you sit up in bed! Linens and pillows are provided. Additional sleeping is available with use of inflatable beds. Two upstairs baths are beautifully finished with hand made Mexican tile, and modern fixtures.

Casa Fortuna is an easy walk from the center of La Penita de Jaltemba, a colorful Mexican town where you will find restaurants, taco stands, grocery stores, meat and fish markets, shopping, disco, Internet shops, kayak and bicycle rentals. The tiangus or community market, is held every Thursday morning in the town square where you can buy handicrafts from Mexico, jewelry, clothing, household goods, produce, seafood, and fresh bread and pastries. Walk or taxi a few miles down the beach to Rincon de Guayabitos, a busy resort town with party boats, whale watching tours, fishing, banana boats, jet skis, para sailing, horseback riding, beach front dining, and karaoke!

After a great evening out, or a wonderful meal prepared at the house by Sandra and Rick, wind down on the veranda, with tea lights flickering around you, the moon shining through the palm trees above, and the music of the waves inviting you to sleep. This is paradise!

Sandra and Rick, our English fluent caretakers live on site in a casita at the back of the property. They are wonderful cooks and can prepare traditional Mexican or American/Canadian style meals at the house for a very reasonable fee, so pamper yourself and make this a real vacation! Sandra can also babysit for a relaxing night out without the kids, arrange a boat ride to Chacala for lunch and whale watching, a fishing trip on a local panga boat or a driver for an out of town adventure to see the crocodiles in San Blas, the petroglyph's in Alta Vista or maybe down the road to Puerto Vallarta,Sayulita, San Pancho or even Guadalajara.

Transportation to and from Puerto Vallarta Airport can be arranged with licensed Taxi that is familiar with the house and location. Look for the sign with your name when arriving at the airport...make a stop for groceries at a large grocery store.....it is as simple as that!

Excellent Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We just finished a family vacation here and it was wonderful. House was great, pool was great and nice swimmable beach right in front. Town was very close to walk to everything. We enjoy embracing the culture of the towns we visit and this was perfect. Very few American tourists, but lots of Mexican tourists on weekends which was fun to see. Highly recommended. Caretakers were lovely and wonderful with our 3 year old.

Look No Further!!!

  • 5 of 5
Unbelievable vacation! The owners were extremely accommodating and helpful and the house and grounds were super-comfortable. What it lacked in luxury, it more than made up for in charm and hospitality. The real super-stars are Rick and Sandy! They will bend over backwards to make your vacation perfect. They know everyone in town and can arrange any kind of pampering or adventure experience you're looking for. Besides both being a wonderful cooks, Sandy is an angel of mercy. When my 1 year old grandson ran a high fever, Sandy left her family gathering and rushed over to help us care for him. She called a local doctor who would be on hand if need be. There was no need. After her 'magic' tummy massage, Max made a miraculous recovery! Can't say enough good things about this couple…….it doesn't get any better than this!!!

Fantastic Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed here for the month of February with family ranging in age from 2-64 years. Everyone had a great time! The pictures do not do it justice! Fantastic location directly on the water front. Loved the privacy walls and the gated beach access - great for keeping the little ones safe! The house and the grounds are beautifully maintained by Rick and Sandy! We had Sandy (and occasionally Rick) cook breakfast and dinner each day. They did a fantastic job!! They were incredibly helpful with everything! Sandy joined us for the Thursday market to translate, trips into town, trips to PV etc. She also arranged for 3 of us to have our hair braided, and for us to have a massage and pedicure right at the house. My children (ages 2 & 4) loved hanging out with Rick and Sandy! They watched cartoons with them every day, had their nails painted and went on trips into town with them. They are both still talking about them! We had Alejandro pick us up from the airport as well as return us there at the end of our trip - we highly recommend using him. We would definitely recommend this place to everyone!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. It is so nice to know that our hard work has created something special and appreciated, although I think that Sandy and Rick may be the big attraction. I read your review and Sandy says she misses your children too! We hope to see you again.

Vacaciones para repetir

  • 5 of 5
Este pasado agosto alquilamos la casa La Fortuna para disfrutar 9 días con mi familia. Por la web parecía muy bonita. La realidad, ESPECTACULAR. Amueblada con exquisito gusto, muy funcional, una playa para ti solo, una piscina que te relaja e invita a la lectura, unos atardeceres preciosos, unos jardines de ensueño... En fin, nos nos cansaríamos de ponerle todo tipo de adjetivos. Otra cosa mas, esta atendida por los encantadores Sandy y Rick, siempre atentos, acogedores, haciendote sentir como en casa. En definitiva, un acierto. VOLVEREMOS.

Outstanding family vacation Christmas/New Year 2010

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 8 ( 6 adults, a child aged 4 and a baby of 18 months) stayed at Casa Fortuna over the Christmas and New Year holidays, 2010. We had an excellent vacation. The house and surounding beach are exactly as depicted on the photos on the web site and inside it is better that the photos show. The location is fantastic - right next to a beach where the sand is washed twice daily by the Pacific Ocean and with a well positioned and private pool behind the house. We ate outside every day in a spacious dining area by the pool and on the terrace by the sea.
While the location is delightful, Rick and Sandra enriched our stay significantly. They provided dinner every evening and breakfast on Christmas day morning. The food was very good and they were helpful and extremely friendly. They turned an ideal location into an outstanding family holiday.
Finally we must mention Alejandro. The lovely house is an hour from the airport, which might be a drawback for some, but Alejandro's safe and reliable transportation eliminated any issues with arrival and departure. He greeted three separate arrivals and arrived on time for three separate departures ( one at 4.30 am!).

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Wow, wow, wow! This property was absolutely fantastic! The pictures do not do it justice. We spent a week at Casa Fortuna to celebrate our parents 40th wedding anniversary. Our ages ranged from 11 to 60 year of age and there was something to do for everyone. The house was immaculate. Everything you could possibly need was there from dishes to towels to c.d' s to comfortable beds, to two wonderful caretakers that will answer any question you have. Sandra and Rick were so helpful. There wasn't anything that they could not help us with. They also cooked us a delicious meal for my parents anniversary. We went fishing and barbequed our fresh fish. We went sea kayaking and saw humpback whales out in front of the house and we went surfing and caught some sweet waves. If you want an experience of authentic Mexico with fantastic food and are an adventurous kind of person then you will love Casa Fortuna. If you are an all inclusive kind of traveller then this may not the place for you. You are in charge of the mansion, including food and shopping nearby. But...you can get all your meals arranged and cooked by Sandra, if necessary, and it will be so much better than any hotel chain. We ended up spending less money than staying at a hotel and had such a special, beautiful wonderful experience. We will be back, we started planning our next trip the minuet we arrived. Thank you so much Sherry, Doreen, Rick and Sandra for making our parents anniversary so special. The time and care to put into the details all over the Casa make it such an exhilarating experience just to wake up, with a cup of freshly roasted coffee and sit and watch the beauty of the waves rush in. We all agreed that the was the "best Mexico" we have ever experienced after collectively spending weeks over the years on the Mayan Riveria, in Cabo San Lucas, and many other Mexican towns. You will fall in love with Casa Fortuna.
