Holiday Rental House
Welcome to Casa Pacífico in beautiful Nayarit, Mexico. This unit (Casa de la Alegria) is one of two on the property. Tired of the 'walk to everything' descriptions? I could walk across the country if I really wanted to. This property is truly a walk-to-the-beach home. Stand in the street in front of the house, turn to your right, and the Pacific Ocean beckons you -- 100 steps away. In addition, there are several cafes in the neighborhood as well as small markets. 6 blocks will take you to the center of La Penita where you will find shops, markets, banks, restaurants and bars - just about anything you need. The casita itself is a two bedroom, one bathroom unit. A/C for bedrooms.

This unit (Casa de la Alegria) is one of two on the property. Tired of the 'walk to everything' descriptions? I could walk across the country if I really wanted to. This property is truly a walk-to-the-beach home. Stand in the street in front of the house, turn to your right, and the Pacific Ocean beckons you -- 100 steps away. In addition, there are several cafes in the neighborhood as well as small markets. 6 blocks will take you to the center of La Penita where you will find shops, markets, banks, restaurants and bars - just about anything you need. The casita itself is a two bedroom, one bathroom unit. A/C for bedrooms. Sit outside in the garden right outside your door for morning coffee, or in the evening, take the stairs to your roof to watch the sunset while listening to the waves and catching the ocean breezes. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to be here during one of the many meteor showers! This casita is a detached unit, separate from the main house, and adjacent to the pool. A full kitchen allows you to eat in whenever you like but you are still close enough to town to head in to one of the outstanding cafes and restaurants. A short walk down the beach will take you there in minutes. Or purchase tamales and tortillas from the street vendors in the neighborhood. A large bathroom and a roomy living space make this the perfect home base while you explore all that Riviera Nayarit has to offer: colonial buildings in nearby towns, surfing in Sayulita, jet-skiing, mountain drives, markets, ancient ruins, hot springs, volcanos, and miles and miles of beach. You can easily explore the other towns in the area - San Pancho, Rincon de Guaybitos, Los Ayala, and Lo de Marcos. You will be about an hour from Playa las Tortugas and the turtle camp there. San Blas is another hour beyond. All linens and towels are supplied (including beach towels). Both queen beds have pillow toppers and high thread count sheets. I have tried to equip the home with everything you will need - basic spices, cooking oil, bottled water, etc.) but if there is anything else you require, just ask. The property has two rental units as well as the owner's home. They all share a courtyard and garden as well as a pool. I am located in Colonia Pescadores in La Penita. This is an authentic Mexican village, not a flashy resort town. It is a quiet, laid-back neighborhood with a true flavor of Mexico. The street is a mix of homes, small local businesses, a few hotels/rentals, a school across the street, and lovely neighbors! More

I have already booked a return visit. The location is private, beach is not busy, and good restaurants are nearby. Comfy beds, sweet pool, and hammocks are relaxing in every way. I really appreciate the free on site laundry and bigger than dorm room refrigerator.

About the neighbourhood
The beach is 100 steps away. The main street in town is a 5-10 minute walk depending on whether you like to wander through the neighborhood or stroll along the beach. Many activities await you: beach time, hiking, turtle camps, ruins, volcanoes, petroglyphs, hot springs, jungle and mangroves, Huichol villages, local markets and artisans, snorkeling and other water sports - so much to see and do! You will be staying in a lovely neighborhood with local businesses and families.
Getting around
Walking within La Penita is easy. I am 5 blocks to el centro through town or a quick 5 minute walk along the beach. There you can find anything you will need during your stay - banks, shops, groceries, restaurants, bars. If you want to visit a nearby town, attraction or beach, taxis are plentiful and inexpensive. Many of my guests stay for several months and walk or take taxis. Others want to venture farther afield so they rent a car, or schedule an outing with many of the available tour guides. The choice is yours, depending on your plans.
