Olavaquero is a 3 bedroom, 2 ½ bath, 4300 sq ft first class beach house situated a stones throw away from the ocean. It was designed by San Francisco based nationally recognized designers Americo Diaz-Obregon and Charles Lee.
The house is a 10 min walk or a quick drive through the mango orchard back to Rio Nexpa Village for supplies, restaurants and SURF; the short distance provides privacy and a deserted beach to call your own.
The defining characteristic of Olavaquero is a 10 foot wide tower that begins on the ground floor and continues though the 2nd floor roof; the tower has an internal staircase leading to a 3rd floor roof deck and finally the Crows Nest. The Crows Nest is perched 55 feet in the air and covered by a thatched roof, there is no better place to check the surf or watch the sun set.

Awesome Spot - Great location and owner
We really enjoyed our recent stay at Ola Vaquero. The house is in a great location- very close walk down the beach to the waves at Rio Nexpa. The owner was super responsive and helpful and the onsite caretaker and chef Alejandro is phenomenal. He cooked really good local cuisine for a very reasonable price and is a really great guy. Another bonus was the quiver of boards available which allowed us to not have to lug boards down which made travel much easier. Great bang for your buck here. Again, big thanks to James and Alejandro for helping make our trip so easy and fun.
Great house and great location. Alejandro, caretaker and chef really does make this a wonderful place to stay. He goes out of his way to be very attentive to all our needs. Looking forward to our next stay.
Exactly as described and Much More!
If you're looking at this home as a possibility for your surf adventure, I have to warn you that this is not a surf trip. Olavaquero is an experience of a lifetime. Please don't do as I did and wait...A trip here will change your life. It seems incomprehensible that there not be waves to surf at the point, if not world-class as mentioned. Being in warm water, amongst old and new friends, with great waves - would have been enough, but to return to the property itself, I can only reiterate everything that has been said in the other reviews. It is masterfully designed and situated, it's so comfortable in the afternoons and at night. You will settle into the rhythms of the area, and it will ruin you for what you thought was a vacation. What I can not express is how wonderful the entire experience is. Watch the Pescadores show you what a fisherman is, by watching the ocean for an hour, then wading casually into 8' liquadora with a hundred pounds of rusty tackle. Then returning to retrieve 5 different species of fish. The best part of Nexpa, however, are the people. You will meet amazing people, in the lineup, on your travels, and most importantly, as your hosts. Manuel and Rebecca and their family are simply wonderful! Your mind will be blown by the food she prepares and by how genuine they are. The home is well appointed with everything you need and the info provided by the owners is just spot-on and the rental process is simple and easy. You will be emotional leaving this place, and you will vow to return, as we will. Thanks so much Pat and Jordan y Muchas, Muchas Gracias Manuel, Rebecca, Yareli y Valeria!
A perfect, relaxing getaway.
I've been to Rio Nexpa several times. Always stayed in the small raised huts at the point. Olavaquero blows the doors off these places for comfort and value while still maintaining the rustic beachfront charm that I love about Rio Nexpa.
The pictures do not do this house justice. Everything was neat and clean as promised. Arranging the rental with Pat was a breeze (if you are extra nice to him he may give you the recipe to his "Cowboy Margarita").
The house is majestic. Huge master suites and bathrooms, comfy bunk room, theatre size movie viewing, internet, lots of rental boards, great pool and the best part: the lookout tower to check the surf and watch sunsets. Just steps to the sand and a short walk to the reeling surf at the point, this house stays comfortable during the hot afternoons because the whole front of it is open to the prevailing sea breeze. Perfect.
Revecca, the live-in chef, cooked us some of the best Mexican food I've had anywhere. Do yourself a favor and ask her to make her shrimp chile rellenos or barbecue a whole fish. We did both and it was a treat. It was a nice alternatives to the restaurants in town. Great breakfast as well.
All in all a wonderful trip for us. We had clean head-high surf all week. It's always a bit of a gamble going anywhere to chase surf, but Olavaquero is a sure bet for a great relaxing time, even is the surf doesn't decide to cooperate.
Awesome house. Awesome location. We arrived a day late due to some lost luggage and time however once we we were finally at Olavaquero, the weight came off our shoulders and we started to unwind.
The location couldn't be better - walking distance to Nexpa where there are some great little restaurants yet isolated up the beach where nobody bothers you. All you hear is the sound of the waves crashing on the beach. Time begins to stand still which is just what you want on a much needed vacation. This home is best enjoyed with at least four people. If you have to bring the kids, there is a bunk room to house them in. Personally, I would have added some sort or bar across the door to lock them in the room, but that's just me.
Caretakers Manuel and Rebecca were great though I wish I spoke a little more Spanish than I do. Rebecca prepared the best meals for breakfast and dinner and we picked up some helpful tips to use at home.
All in all, it was a great vacation and I can't wait to go back again.
What a great week. We had great surf all week and surfed the point every day. Also made some road trips to other spots just north of Nexpa. The caretaker staff was great. They made us excellent breakfast every morning after surf and it was always delicious. We went on a fishing trip with some locals from Caleta that did a great job. We caught a few fish and one of the guys speared a Gallo Fish. Manuel took us to a waterfall on a river about 10 minutes outside town, which was also a fun adventure.
Good times. Viva Olavaquero!
Glad you had a good time Jack, you are always welcome.
