About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Casa Pelicanos is your dream beach vacation home, just steps from one of the great hidden beaches of the Mexican Riviera, Playa Venados. Our lovely home is just 45 minutes from the Puerto Vallarta airport and minutes from the town of Lo de Marcos. Step out onto the veranda and see the breathtaking panorama of ocean in front of you and the lush semi-tropical forest to the side. The air is soft, the scenery breathtaking and the ever-present sound of the ocean is ultimately relaxing.

You can whale watch from the veranda, relax while you see the pelicans soar over the house or take a dip in the pristine warm water. There is a small outdoor restaurant at the edge of the beach where you can enjoy a meal or a cold beverage. At night, take in the stars and the fireflies while you stroll on the beautiful beach. Casa Pelicanos is a refuge from our all too busy lives and your stay here will be truly relaxing and refreshing.

Accommodations at Casa Pelicanos are aesthetically beautiful and comfortable with authentic art and furnishings. There are two levels, each of which is self-contained with full kitchens and separate entrances. The upstairs consists of three bedrooms (2 queens/1 king) and three bathrooms while the downstairs has two bedrooms (2 queens) and two bathrooms. Rent them separately or together. Every room in the house has a ceiling fan to provide a comfortable environment.

Lo de Marcos is a small charming town, which is not yet a tourist destination. There are a couple of restaurants, grocery stores, pharmacy and of course a fabulous beach with an adjoining estuary with great bird watching. Check out the town square which is the social hub: there are often fun local events.

For fine dining and shopping you can go down to San Francisco, which is 20 minutes south of Lo de Marcos or drive another 5 minutes further to Sayulita. 15 minutes to the north is La Penita, with banks, ATM’s and a fun Thursday market selling arts & crafts along with deliciously fresh fruits and vegetables.

There are taxis available to and from the airport and also in Lo de Marcos and upon request. If you really want to explore we recommend a rental car which is available at the airport or in Sayulita.

Why The Owner chose Nayarit

We chose this location for the extraordinary coastal view, proximity to the beach as well as the quiet location. You can always drive down to Sayulita for some shopping and nightlife but I don't care to deal with loud music or partying when I want to sleep and only hear the sound of the surf.

What makes this house unique

Casa Pelicanos is such a beautiful home and much care has been taken with the art and furnishings to make it feel like you are walking into a place of comfort and serenity. The kitchen is very well equipped and there is plenty of space in the living room or the veranda to read or just hang out. Just walk down our driveway and the pristine beach is only steps away. Whenever I stay at Casa Pelicanos time slows down and my vacation provides the sense of relaxation and renewal I was hoping for.

Fantastic getaway/vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our 2 week stay in Casa Pelicanos in Lo de was heavenly! The house was beautiful and the almost private beach was awesome! The caretakers, Trini And Joel were charming and even prepared us a lovely meal at the house where their adorable 12 year old daughter, Odet served as our waitress. We couldn't have had a nicer vacation...can't wait to book again for next time! Gracias!

Beautiful part of Nayarit

We were looking for a non-Cabo non-Las Vegasy vacation and Casa Pelicanos in Lo De Marcos was just what we needed. Joel and Trini treated us like family

This house is so amazing! We loved everything about it! The views were breath taking, the kitchen was beautiful and well equipped, the decor and all the finishing touches felt like true luxury. We loved hearing the sound of the waves every night while we slept and we spent most of our days right down at the beach. It was so private. I would recommend this house who wants a true get away with all the amenities minus the crowds. We will hopefully be back soon!

My Favorite

  • 5 of 5

I love Casa Pelicanos. I love it so much that I just decided to look at the pictures on the website to reminisce and realized that I never wrote a review!!! The house is absolutely gorgeous and has everything you could possibly need. Amazing views, the beach is RIGHT THERE, close to so many great spots to check out, and super friendly locals. I may never see much of Mexico because I have found paradise and loveliness in the quiet little town of Lo De Marcos. I visited in 2014, 2015 and am planning a trip for 2016.

Casa Pelicanos

  • 5 of 5

We feel extremely fortunate to have spent our second week in Mexico at Casa Pelicanos. Just having come from the frenetic hustle and bustle of Sayulita, Casa Pelicanos offered us a welcomed respite and a chance to sit back and more fully appreciate our surroundings. The house itself is spacious and equipped with everything that you would find in your own home. A wrap around balcony overlooking your private sandy beach, lush tropical vegetation with exotic flowers and a secluded location, all combined to provide us a unique and satisfying experience. In our upper floor accommodations, the 3 bedrooms all with individual bathrooms as well as the very large open concept living, dining and kitchen areas, gave ample room for getting together as a group or taking some time for yourself. And so too, the interior decorations and artwork created almost a mystical feeling as you sat back and listened to the waves crashing on the beach below. We also found the owner and caretakers easy to contact and very quick to respond to an inquiry we had during our stay. Travel into the town of Los de Marcos can be made by car, taxis or a short 20 minute walk over a dirt road and pavement. People are extremely friendly and there are numerous small shops with fresh fruits and vegetables, milk, beer and just about everything you may need. Arcelia’s restaurant was one of our favourite spots and the food can only be described as excellent. Another favourite locale was at a local Los de Marcos beach vendor where you could sit and sip ice cold beer while the waves gently rolled in under the table and over your feet. Our stay at Casa Pelicanos just outside Los de Marcos was exceptional and we hope to be able to return in 2016.
