La Casita Bodhicitta is located right on the beach. From the hammocks on the veranda which encircles the house you can see the surfers. This consistent left breaking wave is known as the best point break in Mexico. It is long and beginner friendly. The water, the air and the humidity average 80 degrees. The climate is truly AMBIENT. Sea breezes keep the house cool year round. Each of the 3 bedrooms has an ocean view. The large dining table on the veranda invites families where you can watch spectacular sunsets through the tropical gardens as you dine. On the other side of the house is an infinity pool and covered deck overlooking the ocean.

The main house with 1 master bedroom and 2 sleeping couches can be rented separately for $1000/week. If you want to add the 2 poolside bedrooms, the total price is $1500/week.

About John Majors

My wife and I have lived in Sun Valley, Idaho for the last forty years. We love to ski and surf in Mexico. We have thirteen grandchildren, the beach house is the perfect environment for children and adults. The climate here is perfect and a great counter point to our life in the mountains.

John Majors purchased this bungalow in 2000

Why John Majors chose Guerrero

Saladita has some of the best surf in the world and is perfect for beginners, with out the 'vibe' of a world class break. The water is clean and the beach is beautiful and sandy, with great swimming and body surfing just out the front door. The yard is completely fenced and safe. We have never had an incident of burglary or violence. There are 13 houses along the strand and all the neighbors know each other. We have a lovely couple who caretake the house and provide a sense of safety.

What makes this bungalow unique

Our house is ten years old although we have owned the property since 2000. Ours is the first lot in the original subdivision in Saladita and we are close to everything but just the right distance away to feel the privacy of an individual home. This house has it's own well and the entire property is one large garden spot. We planted all these trees, the palms from coconuts.

We highly recommend Casita Bodhichitta. . We have frequent this destination and have booked many other places in the past and this was money well spent. We were hesitant of the open air and no AC but it was completely comfortable...even a bit chilly with the fan at night. Very well laid out and authentic décor. Alfonso and Alicia, in our opinion, were the best caretakers in the area. We also rented out Casa Crist with a group of people. There was plenty of room to have your own space. If you have a group of people, I would recommend renting the entire property. It is truly more bang for your buck than other places on the point. The additional room outside is pretty good size as well. So much room....this place will not disappoint. Highly recommend. Thank you John.

What a place! Very relaxing and beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Casita Bodhichitta. Such a beautiful, comfortable and well set-up bungalow right on the beach. Perfectly located just a short walk from the surf and beach-side restaurants. You can watch the surf break while swinging in the hammocks on the front porch. It's a very well set-up casita, beautifully decorated, well appointed kitchen, comfortable beds, well situated to catch the ocean breeze and listen to the breaking waves. The surrounding grounds are also very beautiful and well set-up. Private and safe, staying at Casita Bodhichitta makes for a very relaxing stay, whether hanging around the shaded pool or reading in one of the hammocks. The caretakers, Alfonso and Alicia, are very friendly and helpful. All-in-all a great place to stay for a very relaxing surf vacation. Highly recommended.

We stayed at La Casita Bodhichitta during Spring Break 2014 with our 5 year old and 11 year old.. and it was absolutely AMAZING!! The house was beautiful and had everything we could have needed/wanted. Our kids loved playing in the ocean, as well as the pool, and we all relaxed in the hammocks while watching the sun set or reading a book. We ate every meal on the lanai overlooking the ocean and enjoyed a stroll along the beach every day. This was the most relaxing vacation we have ever been on and we will most definitely vacation here again.

My favorite place to be

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed here several times. The house is the closest to the water. It's amazing to hear the crashing waves while lying in bed or in a hammock. Absolutely recommend!

Brilliantly beautiful! The perfect surf vaccation!

  • 5 of 5

Just home from 10 days in Saladita at La Casita Bodhichitta. To echo other reviews, this place is utterly amazing.

Vibrant colours enveloped us as we walked into the courtyard - lush green palms, pink hibiscus flowers, the warm ochre of the casitas and the turqoise blue of the pool. The sea breeze and sound of waves crashing welcomed us to our new rhythm. The décor and attention to detail in this home is stunning – terra cotta floors, rugs and blankets, hand-painted dishes, mugs, beautiful masks, carved wooden furniture, doors and shutters. Conjure a Mexican casita in your mind, and this is it. Wow!

As two couples, we found the place to be extremely spacious and brilliantly laid out to facilitate lots of social time (cooking together in the kitchen, enjoying meals on the beautiful large covered patio facing the beach), as well as providing spaces for privacy and retreat (hammocks, yoga on the pool deck, separate sleeping quarters, etc).

To note: Guests of Casa Crist (large beautiful house above the casita on the same property) share the pool and gain access to the beach through the communal courtyard. A group moved in to Casa Crist mid-way through our trip, however everyone was respectful of noise levels, space, etc and it was no problem, just an adjustment.

We cooked incredible meals in the well stocked kitchen - fresh fruit, veggies and fish purchased from local markets, fresh hot tortillas off the street in Los Llanos, main staples picked up en route in ZIH or from the small stores in Los Llanos.

All towels, linens, even great books (!!) provided. Caretakers Alicia and Alfonso were very friendly, helpful and attentive – there to clean the pool each morning, bring jugs of drinking water and attend to any other needs (though we didn’t have many).

This is rural Mexico! Authentic, raw and real. The people are incredibly friendly and we felt safe even through all living quarters are open. We embraced the resident geckos, iguanas, beach dogs and all other neighborhood bugs and creatures. Two sea turtle nests hatched directly in front of the Casita during our stay – very cool!

You will need basic Spanish if you plan to really immerse yourself here. With a car, there are lots of places just beyond Saladita to explore/surf.

As beginner/intermediate surfers, La Saladita was the PERFECT break to hone our skills. We felt safe, challenged and supported by the incredibly friendly community of surfers at the break.

We would go back in a second!!
