About Annie VerSteeg

I enjoy this area of Mexico. The weather is perfect, it is quiet (most of the time, it is Mexico!)

My dog loves it.

I love to walk the beach, swim in the warm ocean and enjoy the many little restaurants on the beach or in town.

Annie VerSteeg purchased this studio in 2004

Why Annie VerSteeg chose Nayarit

I chose Lo de Marcos because it is easy to get to from Puerto Vallarta airport but far away from all the crowds! It is such a nice little town with lovely local people and enough Snow Birds to make some nice friends. Lots of community services to get involved with if desired!

What makes this studio unique

I never get sick of the views, The light on the mountains changes all day long, it is never the same and never boring. The birds are plentiful and very entertaining.

I love the short walk to the beach and the short walk to town.

There is music in the town square every Wednesday.

Dance Lessons, Yoga, Pilates, and the restaurants have music nights that are so popular reservations are required!

We have some amazing musicians here so, if you play, bring your instrument! There is an open Mic night ever 2nd Monday.

It can be a very busy place.

A perfect suite, with a well equipped small kitchen open to the morning sunshine, private entrance, a view balcony, and a super comfortable bed with high quality sheets and pillows. The house is up a small hill and has the advantage of fabulous views, a nice breeze and lots of birds. A pleasant walk to the beach, 3 blocks, and a lovely truly Mexican village, with surprisingly good restaurants and grocery shops. Good bus service to surrounding towns for touring and markets. Annie knows how to get around and keeps the operation running smoothly. A great place to stay.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Kim and I enjoyed our stay so very much. Annie's was there to welcome welcome us upon arrival and her casita was absolutely beautiful. The open air kitchen was so perfect, everything clean, well equipped and some basic supplies(coffee, yogurt & milk) in the fridge for our arrival. It was an easy walk to the beach and town with lots of alternative areas to explore as well. Annie was the best host ever always available when we needed some info or directions. we only wish we could have stayed longer but the short time we were there we enjoyed every minute. Thank you Annie

Fantastic accommodations with up-to-date appliances and maid services twice a week. Great location with a 180 view from the private patio and a 5 minute walk to El Centro and the beach. Annie is very helpful regarding her knowledge of the town and surrounding areas as well as her wonderful personality!! A relaxed and charming experience and I look forward to coming again next winter.

I am a regular visitor to Casa Annie and it is a great house with a lovely outlook over the town, the forest, the mountains and the ocean. Sitting outside on the eastern porch in the early morning and the late afternoon are real treats, as the house is above the trees and a great bird watching location. Los de Marcos is really central to other lovely villages up and down the coast, including Sayulita, with lots of restaurants and shops to explore when the quiet streets of the small town, and the surrounding beaches and ranchlands have been explored. The beach is likely and beautiful and there are some great beach restaurants for sunsets. The house has everything you need and more.

Beautiful home with everything you could need

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 (two adults, 3 young children) stayed here for one month during the winter and loved it like it was our own home. We all felt very comfortable there, and had ample room- this house is big! 3 additional family joined us and there was still room for more- very spacious layout to easily accommodate lots of people.

The roof top terrace (palapa) offers a sight you will never forget; views of jungle terrain, mountains and ocean all around. View of the entire town as well, as the house is situated high on a hill. At night the ceiling is lit by star shaped lanterns that cast speckles of soft light across the grass roof. So beautiful, so memorable.

We stayed without a car and got around very easily on foot, even with the kids.

Less than 5 minutes to walk to the beach!

Would be a great town to have bicycles in, which might be available to rent... sometimes!

Kitchen was very well equipped, easy to work in, stools for the kids to sit at, big gas range to cook on. Everything we needed we found.

Super fast internet!! I was quite surprised, considering I've had much slower connections in much more populated cities.

House was very clean when we arrived, and very easy to keep clean. If anything needed fixing, the property manager had it fixed right away.

Annie was always available to talk to via phone or email if we needed anything, as well the property manager lives close by and knows absolutely everything and anything about Lo De Marcos.

I don't want to say too much about Lo De Marcos because it is a secret gem best left to be discovered when you arrive... I will just say how incredibly safe we felt in this town. We weren't even locking the door at night- and only because we didn't even think of it- that's how safe we felt. (perhaps too safe, considering we lock our doors at home?)

The whole vibe to Lo De Marcos is very peaceful. Lots of families, old and young; it is quiet and calm here.

As an example of true Lo De Marcos style, when the water jugs are empty, they go to the bottom of the stairs outside the house, with an envelope of money for the refills. Sometimes the empty bottles, and money, sat at the end of the driveway for 2 days, until the water truck came by to pick up/drop off. The amazing reality is that no one touches the money!

It's just that sort of a place, which I think says a lot.

Beautiful friendly people, the beach speaks for itself, the food was ALL incredible.

What a special place. We are currently planning our return trip

Great boogie-boarding just down the street. The water access is EASY and kid friendly. The point has a sweet little left that goes off pretty frequently. For the die-hard surfers, there is surf all around, here. You will want a car.

The bird watching from the open dining area is VERY entertaining!

There are plenty of yoga classes in town too.

The ocean breeze felt while relaxing on the porch is relaxing and refreshing after a hard day at the beach or a shopping excursion to the 'tianguis'' (markets in every little town). Ours is on Saturdays.

Great hiking groups, bocce ball, volley ball, dancing in the square on Wednesday nights.

You get to chose... relax or go for it!

Really no car needed.
