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.

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
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!
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.
Perfect in every detail. Visually exquisite.
A glimpse of heaven. Thank you.
Had a perfect week in Casa Soloro. Wonderful food from Mari and Laura producing meal after meal for 9 people. Never the same thing twice (except Lobster!)
Our bedroom was spacious with a wonderful outside shower and beautifully decorated with Mexican artefacts. Going to sleep and waking to the sound of the sea below was utter bliss!
Loved the pool and the Palapa was a wonderful retreat when the sun was too strong.
The whales were a stunning bonus and spotting could get quite competitive at times!
We hope to return to this very special place.
A week in Casa Soloro is exactly that. I stayed there with 9 other extended family, including my 2yr old Grandson (Case Soloro perfectly accommodates all ages.) A saltwater infinity pool for Granny, with a shallow end for our two-year old and there was a small sandy beach below for building sandcastles (or Volcano's, as kids do in Mexico!) & a rocky path into the sea for those of us who wanted to swim to the adjacent private beach. This was a short walk away through lush greenery on a paved path. The sea there was perfect for easy swimming and playing. The beach had lovely sand and chairs, equipment you could hire, a paddling pool and a bar.
The cook at the Villa, Mari & Laura the housekeeper, were not only wonderful cook & housekeeper but Mari gave me the best massage ever! Her meals were delicious. Fresh, simple Mexican food as we had requested & both she & Laura tireless in their attention to our needs. They are available for babysitting but we had no desire to leave our oasis of calm. The bedrooms are spacious and have fabulous bathrooms & rain showers. Plentiful towels were always on hand, as were beach towels. Every room has a stunning view from the balconies, out over the lush garden to the sea, whilst at the same time providing seclusion. Although there is a spacious dining room, we lived 'outside' under the Palapa. This provided shade if you needed it, a great living area to sit in & a large dining table & benches. There is a highly equipped Media room, which we never used, preferring to watch whales, fishing boats & sporting activities out on the ocean, not to mention the beautiful nightly sunsets. The whole premises are immaculately kept, by both Laura & the beaming gardener, who cut us coconuts, made sure the pool and outdoor areas were immaculate, including the lush grass lawn and profusion of tropical plants & flowers.
We felt totally looked after the entire time and there was never a moment when we had to ask for anything. If we had, I'm sure that Javier the manager, who called in on us daily, would have obliged.
All in all, a week in paradise, assisted by the kindest, friendly and smiling staff.
We had an incredible week at Casa Soloro. My husband and I went with our family and a 2 year old and it was the perfect space for us for the week. The house was incredible, all the rooms were huge and including massive bathrooms with beautiful showers. You could hear the sound of the ocean from your bed and bathroom! The view from the pool area were spectacular and we spent the days watching whales from there or the palapa by the pool, which was a great space. Mari and Laura cooked delicious meals for us, and catered for different food requests really well. We even had a gardener to come and cut down coconuts from the garden when we requested them one day. The rooms were tidied and cleaned every day and towels were fresh each morning. If we had laundry they also had that done within the same day washed and folded! The location was perfect and we often swam in the sea from the house to the private beach it was so close and one day we walked to the huge beautiful Chakala public beach which was not far - about a 10 min walk. An amazing, memorable week - thank you so much!
We visited over Christmas 2016 with 5 adults and six children including and infant and found Casa SolOro a perfect place for us. The home is very beautiful and well appointed and the setup was perfect for our three families. It allowed for privacy when needed, but we were always found ourselves hanging out in the amazing palapa by the pool. The view from the palapa and pool are terrific, I could sit there all day and watch the waves and boats go by. The salt water infinity pool was another feature that this house so amazing. However , the best amenity was having Mari and Laura around to do the cooking and cleaning. Mari made wonderful meals all week, including a Christmas turkey dinner, and Laura helped Mari with meals and making sure the house was kept and with the serving of the meals. A vacation without cooking for 11 is AMAZING!! Javier the property manager visited daily to make sure everything was how it should be and took care of anything we needed in a very prompt and professional manner. The grounds keeper kept the place looking lovely as well as taking care of the pool and cutting open a few green coconuts for the kids.
We really enjoyed this vacation property and would recommend it to anyone who wishes to have a relaxing and peaceful vacation in Mexico.
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!
Marina Chacala, (aka Chacallia) is located at the north end of Chacala Bay, which is only a ninety minute car ride North of Puerto Vallarta’s newly expanded international airport. This is a beautiful, gated community on a secluded white sandy beach beside a shimmering ocean edged by a natural coconut grove and acres of lush tropical jungle.
