Once again we chose Casa Blanca for our rental home in Mexico. Stayed for 10 nights. Weather was actually cool making the fishing poor. Still didn't affect the fun we had. Bill and Mary were there to help as always, even though Bill was under the weather. The area is still one of our go to places in Mexico. The house is more than accommodating for our needs. Spa was hot and pool was cool. Beach is beautiful and water was inviting for all ages. Walks in the morning ending in Lo De Marcos for local fresh juice and then breakfast. Once again a good time was had by all. We shall return.

Another wonderful stay at Casa Blanca!

  • 5 of 5

As we had enjoyed ourselves so much last year at Casa Blanca and Lo de Marcos, we came back again this year and have already booked next year's stay. Casa Blanca has everything we need for a very relaxing, stress-free vacation - exceptional 360 degree views, a lovely pool and spa, lots of room for 2 families of 4 each, a well-stocked kitchen, easy walking access to a beautiful, quiet beach and town for groceries, beer and delicious tacos, and Bill and Mary - a fun and very accommodating couple who do a great job managing the property and providing interesting local lore and useful information. We feel very lucky to have discovered this oasis and everyone in our group, including our kids aged 11-16, had a blast.

Thanks Bill and Mary and see you next year!!

We had a wonderful time at Casa Blanca

  • 5 of 5

Casa Blanca looks beautiful in the pictures -- and it is even more beautiful to stay there.

Our group of 6 from the US spent 4 luxurious nights at this property, managed by Bill and Mary who live nearby and provide very helpful tips to the inquiring visitor. The beds were comfortable, evenings in the hot tub were outstanding, and this location in Lo de Marcos provided a great central spot for visiting surrounding villages. We visited the towns and beaches at Los Ayala, Sayulita and Punta de Mita, and by the end of our stay all 6 of us concluded that Lo de Marcos is the most authentic little town and our view and accommodations were the nicest we had seen in the entire region. There is a much more expensive villa located inland, but our beach view and walking proximity to the beach trumped even that hacienda.

The quiet and beautiful beach at Lo de Marcos is the most beautiful we visited. Or morning walks there, and swims on occasion, were delightful.

Our thanks go to Bill and Mary for hosting a lovely stay. We heartily recommend Casa Blanca to others!

Tranquility - Los De Marcos

  • 3 of 5

Our overall experience was very good. Bill and Mary made us feel very welcome. The house was clean and fairly well maintained. It would of been nice to have a TV in all the bedrooms and the Internet was very poor, other than that all was good.. the listing was accurate..

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

A little slice of paradise on a hill in a small little Mexican town with one of the best beaches in the area!

From the front of the home you have sunrise over mountain view, jungle views from the side, and a stunning Pacific view from the poolside.

We highly recommend this location if you want to 'get away from it all'.

The home itself had everything we needed- the kitchen was well equipped and the beds comfortable. While some might consider the decor a bit dated- it added to the get away from it all vibe- completely non-pretentious. Bill and his wife were great hosts, they live next door to the home. Both of Bill's local recommendations- from Gecko Rent A Car to the horse ride with local horseman, Lenny, were spot on. A great family vacation.

nine wonderful days we stayed at Casa Blanca in Lo de Marcos The house size and openness ws perfect for two couples. The house was very clean and had all the necessary items in it . the view and the pool are the highlights of this property. It was fantastic for getting out of the heat and enjoying the views of the ocean and town. Having Bill and Mary nearby was a definite plus to answer questions and make recomendations for dinner. We found our rental car a necessity for exploring nearby towns, beaches and resturants We have rented several properties in the area and Lo de Marcos the best balance between quitness which we like and lots of activity This is a great house and we will return
