  • casa pacifico logoCasa Pacífico is truly a walk-to-the-beach home. Walk out your door, turn to your right and the Pacific Ocean beckons you – just 100 steps away.

    Casita de la Alegría, our newly remodeled 2-bedroom rental unit, has a private entrance through our lovely garden. It is equipped with a small kitchen, living and dining area and bath with large walk-in shower. The two bedrooms have queen-sized beds with pillow-top mattresses, foam toppers and high thread count sheets. This unit has A/C. Step outside and enjoy your morning coffee on the patio or head to the pool for a swim. Gaze at the stars from your private rooftop patio.

    Casa de Sonrisas is a one bedroom, one bath upstairs apartment perfect for short vacations or season long accommodations.  Remodeled kitchen and bath in Spring 2016.  Built in wardrobe, large walk in shower and a queen pillow top mattress complete your comfortable getaway.  Sofa bed in living area. Private covered terrace perfect for dining, entertaining, or watching the neighborhood.  This open, airy unit does not have A/C, but doesn’t need it! You will get amazing breezes from the ocean!

    All linens and towels are supplied, including beach towels. The property has two rental casitas, as well as the owner’s home. They all share the courtyard, gardens, swimming pool and laundry.

    About the Area and Owner

    Casa Pacífico is located in Colonia Pescadores in La Peñita. 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 location to the beach is a big plus. There are several cafes and street vendors in the neighborhood, and the center of town is just 6 blocks away. Here, you will find several outstanding restaurants, shops, markets, grocery and liquor stores, banks, etc.

    I enjoy the walled courtyard and pool, as well as the detailed brickwork in the casitas themselves. I have tried to equip the home with everything you might need – basic spices, cooking oil, bottled water, etc., but if there is anything else you require, just ask. Since I live here, I am available should you need anything. I’ll leave you alone if you want, but I am here if you need assistance or recommendations.

    1. :

      I enjoyed my stay in this casita immensely. It is definitely not the resort experience-thank goodness! Pros: inviting enclosed courtyard; hammocks in the shade; pool with pool floats; small, but well equipped kitchen; ceiling fans throughout; bedrooms air conditioned; walk to the beach is super short; beach towels and beach chairs provided; outdoor shower to rinse off sand and salt; washer and dryer; walk to Avenida shopping and restaurants took only ten minutes or so. Cons: street is dusty and cobbled like all the other ones in town. Owner added tables next to lounge chairs by the pool the last day I was there. Remodel of kitchen and bath scheduled for April, I am excited to see the changes! I will definitely stay here next time I take a Mexico vacation.

        Diana, thank you so much for your kind review! I enjoyed talking with you during your stay. I'm glad you enjoyed the atmosphere here and found the "true Mexican village" you were looking for. Looking forward to your next trip! Lissa

      I began email discussions with Lissa Young on November 25, 2015 about renting her place for a month beginning February 7, 2016. I arrived the evening of February 7 and on February 8 was told to vacate the premises. The owner was insulted that I told her that her place was not as described in the numerous emails we shared, in her ad on Jaltemba Bay Folks or on VRBO. It was different in so many ways, that I asked for a refund. She complied with a check for two-thirds of my rental and then stopped payment on the check after she evicted me. This remodel sits between two empty derelict bldgs. She designed a bathroom area for her dogs right when you walk in the entry-way. Be prepared for the look and smell of urine and dog feces as you enter the grounds just to the right of the door. The two dogs are not excessively noisy but they do bark. The casita itself...the front door only opens 1/3 of the way. The beds are comfortable and the sheets have that high thread count that she mentions in all her advertising. Supposedly this makes a huge difference in the quality of your vacation, but she neglects to mention that the window screens have rips and tears that mosquitos get thru...and this side of town has lots of mosquitos. The bathroom hardly accomodates one person and the shower is moldy and mildewy with very little water pressure from a shower spigot that is plugged with years of scale. And bugs...if you like your bathroom with bugs, this one is crawling (literally!) with them. In and out of the shower drain, along the baseboards. She will tell you that every place has bugs. I will tell you, that is simply not the case. There is no chance you will feel the ocean breeze in this small, cramped courtyard. Nor will you hear the surf from this location. The bungalows are directly across the street from a schoolyard playground. The kids are out there early. There is also a marching band with an enthusiastic snare drum player. They practice late into the evening. If the school is not in session and the band is not practicing, you can hear stereophonic rock and roll cranked up to its loudest volume from the numerous apartments and parked wrecked vehicles in the area. When I mentioned the noise to the owner on the morning of February 8, 2016 she became very offended by my "abusive" attitude and asked me "what should she have said?" about "there is a school directly across the street." Sadly the ocean is not 100 steps away. It is a few blocks away and main street is a long dusty walk on a hot day and you will need your mosquito repellent. I do not recommend this rental. The owner Lissa Young takes liberty with the facts and you will be disappointed in what you've spent your hard earned vacation dollars on. There are many other reputable, honest owners to deal with in the LaPenita area. Fortunately I met one and spent the rest of my vacation happily and comfortably in clean accomodations.

        I'm sorry you were unhappy with the location of my property. I try to be very clear that the house is in an authentic Mexican neighborhood. I think you were perhaps expecting something more like the small resorts where the properties are more insulated from the local culture. When you decided to leave the morning after your first night, the only reasons you gave were the number of Mexican families in the neighborhood and the school children across the street. None of the other concerns in your subsequent review were mentioned at all. I am forced to assume that you may be confusing my property with another as even your description of the location of my house is not accurate - I am the 4th house from the beach, not several blocks, and I have a neighbor on one side and rental bungalows on the other, not derelict buildings. I hope you were able to find accommodations that met your needs, and again, I'm sorry your expectations and my property were not in sync. I have had many other guests for whom the culture, location and ambiance were a perfect fit.
