Overview

Marina Chacala House Rental Photos and Description

8,000 Square Ft, 5 Bedrooms w/en-suite Bathrooms, 2 - 1/2 Baths + Media.

Casa SolOro, is inside the private gated community of Marina Chacala and has an ocean front position a 100 yards from the sandy beach you see in the photo. A ninety minute car ride north of Puerto Vallarta’s newly expanded international airport, this beautiful, safe and securely guarded gated community is away from the throng of tourists and is surrounded by the natural beauty of the lush bird-filled jungle that is the backdrop to the fine white sandy beach and tranquil turquoise waters of chacalilla bay. Casa SolOro is a place where you come together to relax, read, swim, mix margaritas, enjoy meals and one another's company with family and friends. Life centers around the large palapa, a palm covered open space which features a wet bar, dining and living area. Children can play on the lawn, swim in the turquoise infinite pool or enjoy an evening watching a movie on the 64' HDTV in the comfortable media room. After lunch, take a siesta or enjoy a massage and doze off to the sounds of the sea in the shaded garden area. Relax, read a book or simply gaze out over the beautiful vistas of the bay. A few steps below you'll discover a small private sandy beach closer to the waves and the sea.

The gourmet kitchen, under a classic Mexican brick dome ceiling, is fully equipped for your *cook to make sumptuous meals that will be served either in the dining room or in the outdoor palapa.

About Christine Foley

Newly constructed and completed in 2013, my husband and I have been coming to Chacalilla (little Chacala) for the last 8 years since we fell in love with the place and bought land. Our dream of a beautiful outdoor-living style Mexican home has finally come true and we are delighted with the outcome! We know you will enjoy the beauty of this perfect bay and will want to return year after year as we did.

Christine Foley purchased this house in 2013

Why Christine Foley chose Nayarit

In 2005 we spent a year exploring up and down the coast of Nayarit looking for a place in the sun. By pure chance we finally found this spot. When we saw it we could not believe how undiscovered it was and how lucky we were to find this gorgeous unspoiled paradise. Away from the mainstream tourist areas, it is the smallest, brightest and most spectacular jewel in the crown of the Riviera Nayarit!

What makes this house unique

We love the house which was designed and built by Mexican architects and incorporates all the elements we love about Mexican coastal living: outdoor life style centered around the palapa, artisanal detail pebble work on the floors, polished concrete, traditional brick dome ceiling, large high windows and cellings with exposed wood beams, balconies overlooking the ocean, volcanic rock walls built from the property's land, everything is a harmonious combination of elements right down to the salt water infinity pool.

Still Dreaming of Casa Soloro!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Casa Soloro with family for a wedding trip. I've got to say bravo to the bride and groom for picking out such an amazing house for all of us to stay with them at!! We had 12 adults and 3 children in our party and there was always plenty of space! Our favorite memory and the one I am still dreaming about is the time spent in the palapa. Everyone would gather for meals together...and I have to stress that the meals are to die for, Mari does an incredible job!...and gather to play games, to swim, to read, to listen to music, to knock back a cocktail or two, to drink coffee in the morning, or even to sleep out in the palapa listening to ocean waves crashing down below. The staff was wonderful and I did read reviews prior to going so my husband and I took the advice and set up a massage with Mari and it did not disappoint! Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did. Until next time Casa Soloro!

Heaven! Blue water, blue sky, amazing food!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Soloro with our family for our wedding trip. The pictures do not do it justice! The house is so beautiful, comfortable, clean, and spacious. The palapa is the perfect place for family and friends to gather, play games, and eat meals at the very large table. Speaking of the meals - Mari is a brilliant chef, you will not be disappointed. We will be talking about her chile relleno for a long time!

Javier took such good care of us, checking in just the right amount and making sure that we had everything we needed. He made us feel so comfortable and welcome the first day we arrived and was very patient with all of our questions. Laura was constantly tidying up after us and was so sweet about all of our requests.

The only thing I would say that was a little difficult is that, because you are staying in the gated community, it is hard to have visitors. So, if you are booking this for a wedding, just be aware that you will have to prearrange to have any guests coming through the gate (including photographer, etc). Also, if you plan to be back and forth to the wonderful beach in Chacala, you might want to rent a car. We took taxis or walked, which was fine, but it would have been nice to have a car of our own.

Casa Soloro is a true experience - the sunsets on the sand strip cannot be beat! We already cannot wait to return.

What a wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa SolOro over Christmas and just loved it. The house is beautiful and the pool is perfect for cooling off. We had 14 people ages 3-80 and there was something for everyone. Mari is an amazing cook. She is also a world class masseuse so do not leave without getting one or two. Laura was such a wonderful housekeeper- always with a smile on her face. Javier, the concierge, was just amazing- he addressed all of our needs and made sure that we were comfortable for the duration of our stay. More than anything, the staff were so warm and inviting that we felt completely at home. My mom even learned how to make some of Mari's dishes!The house itself is large and beautiful with much attention to every detail. The palapa, where we spent most of our time, was just wonderful. The access to Marina Chacala and it's club was also perfect- we played tennis every day and walked or swam to their beach as well. We felt extremely safe in the community as well as the whole Riviera Nayarit. We did not rent cars- rather, we hired drivers when we wanted an outing and from/to the airport. Easy walk to village. I highly recommend this rental and would love to return!

A Little Slice of Heaven!!

Our group consisted of 12: 5 young kids & 7 adults and we stayed the 3rd week of July 2015.

The week was absolutely fabulous! The home is new and tastefully gorgeous; the pool is to die for; and the cook and house help were wonderful!

I HIGHLY recommend Casa SolOro where we cannot wait to return to!

Most Amazing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I am a half a year belated writing this review but Casa SolOro is so incredible I keep returning to it in my memories and we are already plotting our return.

Two families - mine and our good friends - spent six glorious nights at Casa SolOro. We each had 3 children under 5, including infants. We were all blown away by the beauty and serenity of Casa SolOro, as well as the relaxation the location afforded us. Not having to cook - and having the glorious meals that Mari prepared for us, having Javier look after us in terms of any outings and organizing childcare, made it such a simple, perfect week for us. Exactly what we needed. The house and the beach provided more than enough entertainment for our families for a week. We did venture a couple of times into town, but we honestly would have been happy staying put at Casa SolOro. We kept pinching ourselves we could not believe what paradise we had found.

Thank you so much to the owners for creating and sharing such a special retreat, and to Mari & Javier for making our stay so phenomenal. We love you Casa SolOro!
