The Property

Come discover a hidden paradise, and experience the life of private luxury. Casa Sonrisa is a beachfront villa with a stunning setting and incomparable views. Our rates include a full-time maid service which adds to the relaxation. Our manager also offers an option for a personal cook service, see below.

Enjoy wonderful, uncrowded surf out your backdoor and beach comb miles of pristine coastline along a protected Turtle Reserve. Relax poolside, have delicious meals prepared for you and meditate to the soothing sound of the waves beneath.

Come for the rhythm of nature, escape from the traffic, tourists and high prices to another world. Come for the real, enchanting Mexico. Stroll through the small villages, go to a fiesta, learn a little Spanish and embrace the wonderful people.

At Punta el Custodio we offer a food plan at $240 USD per adult per week, and children ages 5-12 $120 USD. This includes 3 meals a day, prepared by your personal maid/cook, and all the shopping for ingredients for meals plus drinks, snacks and fruit are done by the staff. Only liquor and wine are not included. If you want the food plan there is a minimum number of 3 days in a row.

We have WiFi at the house.

About the Neighborhood

We are located in front of a beautiful quiet beach, which is also an official turtle reserve. During the nesting season you may visit the turtle research camp. Here you can experience the hatching and the release of these endangered animals. This is a truly memorable experience.

Perhaps you would like to enjoy fishing, whale watching, bird watching or even horseback riding on the beach? The possibilities of a new adventure are endless.

Our family's favorite days are busy with walking and exploring the little "pueblas", surfing or hiking to a wonderful waterfall. Let your imagination run wild!

We do have occasional blackouts, as they have in Puerto Vallarta, Sayulita, and many other tourist destinations in the area. During the dry season (November – June) they hardly occur, and if so, power is back quickly most of the times. During rainy season they are more frequent because of lightning that strikes a pole, landslides, etc.
