The Property

A unique and elegant home designed and built by local artist and architect Gustavo Jasso. Gustavo's use of organic materials and tropical style has turned our property into a relaxing, comfortable getaway. The house, completed in the fall of 2009, is situated on 1.5 acres with 330 feet of oceanfront. The walled property affords incredible privacy. All inclusive pricing is available. Our caretaker Flora is a CHEF! She loves to cook and offers cooking classes as well.

The main palapa is open air and includes two living rooms, two baths and a dining room and kitchen. The pool wraps around the lower living area. There is a huge bedroom loft above with its own bath. The loft has 3 kings. We have a bedroom nook off of the living room with its own bath. We have a separate one room cabana that sleeps six and has air conditioning. Our home has one and a half acres of land and has 330 feet of beachfront in La Saladita. It is extremely quiet and private with a wall around the entire property. Most days you will be the only one on the beach. We have created a private beach around the pool area as well.

We have a private decent beach break right in front of the house if you are a shortboarder.

We have onsite caretakers named Flora and Serafin that live on property, and can be hired to prepare meals or take you on fun adventures. Her son Juan and his wife Karla live on site as well. Juan helps with all the maintenance and Karla does all the cleaning.

As for surfboards, we rent soft tops at our house but we suggest renting boards at Lourdes' Surf Shop for convenience.

YOGA RETREATS can be arranged for an additional fee. We have an instructor from the US who will come down and personalize your yoga vacation. She is available at anytime with advanced notice. She does amazing Thai massage as well.

All inclusive rates available. This would include all your meals, food preparation and clean up by Flora.
