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.

About Christine Foley
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 Chacala
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.

Wow! Wow! Wow!
We had an absolutely wonderful week at fabulous Casa SolOro!
What's not to love? The property itself is so special, and I can truly see how much thought Christine put into every last detail of the house and grounds, to make sure the visitor experience is nothing but the best. It left us wanting for nothing. Everything is anticipated and provided --and since we are quite particular, that says a lot.
We loved waking up to the calming ocean sounds, singing birds, abundant wildlife, and whale shows that were second to none. Like they were performing everyday just for us, lol. Glad we brought the binoculars as recommended.
I also want to express the important role the amazing staff played in making our stay so unforgettable. Javier was a huge help-- very professional, kind, accommodating and easy to work with every step of the way. And Mari and Ana. Well, they are just the best! They put their hearts and souls into getting us our meals, all of which were delicious, freshly prepared, and beautifully served, every day. In fact, we so loved their meals we did not even eat out! They always shared smiles, an easy, can-do attitude and we grew to cherish them more every day. They are such an asset to the overall experience, I think several people actually cried when it was time to say goodbye.
We couldn't have asked for a better vacation, and we hope to make this visit an annual one! I cannot express our gratitude and appreciation to you for making this all possible, Christine. And I know that our thoughts also reflect that of everyone in our group as well.
Simply the best vacation possible. If this experience is in your price range, do not hesitate. Owner was easy to deal with. Javier, the coordinator, is more helpful than anyone I've met. He can get just about anything you could possibly want. The meals are amazingly prepared and delicious. the food can be authentically Mexican or standard tourist and the options are endless. I highly recommend letting Mari put your menu together. Just tell her what you don't like and you'll happy. Her meals were better than any we had in restaurants. The staff is there if you need anything but out of the way if you don't.
Just don't try and book the dates that I will be returning!
Amazing property & staff - Perfect girlfriends getaway!
Casa Soloro was perfect for our girlfriends getaway for my birthday! The home was just stunning and fit us perfectly! We were 9 women and all had great bedrooms, there's a view from pretty much every room! The lay out of the house is fabulous to give you a bit of privacy when you go off to your room at night but perfect for hanging out for meals & in the pool over looking the ocean. The Palapa is just insanely gorgeous and the sunsets were beautiful beyond words.
We have stayed at 2 homes in Punta Mita over the past 4 years and this home in Marina Chacala was equally stunning and the service was fantastic. Mari & her daughter Anna totally got us. They understood what we wanted as they had an incredible breakast, lunch & dinner spread for us daily. We've never eaten so well! We did pay the extra to have them stay for dinner each night which was well worth it for us! We had an awesome bartender Chaba every day & the drinks were delicous, the best mango margaritas especially!
We played tennis daily and the courts were great & easy to walk to. For those who didn't want to play tennis they took long, beautiful walks. We also paddle boarded in the bay in town. We walked to town and had an insanely good lobster & fish lunch too, one of the best meals I've ever had! Mari is also an excellent masseuse & another gal came each day as well, so 2-4 of us had massages each day which was pure heaven.
Our concierge Javier as well as the owner Christine, went above & beyond to make sure our stay was fantastic. I would not hestitate to recommend this vacation oasis to friends & family and I plan to go back. Even the driver, Alberto, who picked us up at the airport was great!!
If you want a relaxing, beach location in totaly luxury, this is your spot!
Beautiful grounds, amazing staff. House was great for 4 families for one week.
We enjoyed this property for one week over New Years.Javier, Ana and Mari we’re amazing. Food was authentic and plentiful, Javier was extremely helpful and attentive tonight our needs. Bedrooms were amazing, fantastic views from all masters.
Our family of 10 adults and grandchildren ages 3 months to 10 years had the best Christmas ever! Solora is better than the pictures and reviews! One could only hope that Heaven is as good! Javier, the manager was extremely helpful - even had a local restaurant deliver the local fish specialty dinner - which was spectacular. Mari's cooking is fabulous - every meal was special - and everything was made from scratch! Two of our children tried to take her home! Anahi, Mari's assistant was exceptional! There was all of the equipment needed to snorkel, play tennis and kayak. The Association pools and beach were close - and lots of fun. El Fege hung piñatas on Christmas Day... and prepared fresh coconuts for the children one day. Our trip to the Thursday market in Las Penitas was fun. We have already booked our dates for 2019! The house is spectacular - and the staff is sensational!
A WEEK IN PARADISE!
Our family of 10 just spent a wonderful Thanksgiving week at beautiful CASA SOLORO. The Villa property is even more stunning than any photo can capture. Every room in the Villa is so thoughtfully designed with beautiful ocean views and the most comfortable high quality furnishings for lounging, meals and sleeping.
The saltwater pool is perfect for all ages. The grandkids loved playing in the shallow area and adults could swim laps. And, it was just a short tree-canopied walk to a gorgeous private beach club for safe ocean swimming and three more pools at the club. We also played tennis one day at the neighborhood tennis courts.
The entire property is maintained to perfection. The house has its own water purification system and the highest quality bath fixtures. We had good cell phone service wherever needed and excellent wireless internet throughout the Villa.
But, what really made our stay memorable was the Villa’s amazing staff. They were so genuinely kind and helpful in every way. Javier, the manager, made our son’s birthday extra special by arranging for a mariachi band to play at sunset and delivering a fresh baked delicious birthday cake. Javier also furnished the nicest babysitter to help with a 5-month old during the day.
All meals were discussed with us during our stay and Mari would then prepare each meal to perfection. The food was fresh and delicious. Even picky grandchildren wanted second servings! We never dined out because Mari’s meals were exceptional.
Besides being a fabulous cook, Mari is a very skilled massage therapist. We indulged in several amazing one-hour massages throughout the week.
Chaba, the bartender, prepared the most delicious drinks for kids and adults. He became part of our family under the Palapa and was so nice to the children.
Ana, Mari’s daughter, kept everything clean/tidy each day and assisted with meals. Like all the staff, she greeted us with a smile and was always available to help in any way.
The groundskeeper cut us fresh coconuts from the Villa’s trees to enjoy one morning. He trimmed the beautiful lush landscaping to perfection and kept the pool in top condition during our stay.
If you want to get away from it all, and truly feel like you have reached paradise on earth, CASA SOLORO is a perfect choice. The Owners should take great pride in their beautiful creation.
