Casa Marfil is one of the first homes built on the Rio Cuale and has substantial and beautiful remodeling upgrades to make this one of the most charmingly authentic Mexican homes with all of the convenience and comfort that make for a great vacation.
Casa Marfil overlooks the Rio Cuale, bringing the sound of a babbling brook or sometimes rushing river, depending on the season, with night time tree frogs and daytime flocks of wild parrots and song birds outside the multiple verandas and terraces found in this four levels villa. The rooftop terrace makes for even more lovely views of the river, jungle, mountains and city by the ocean views. Here you can sunbath privately on quality chaise lounge chairs or relax in the hammock under the palapa and wetbar with mini fridge nearby.
