About the property

Open plan two bedroom close to the beach. Sleeps 4.

Practical, simple accommodation one block from the beach! Great for experienced travelers who want to unplug and enjoy local culture.

Minutes from the downtown square, public transit, restaurants, sports bar, and grocery stores.

Beautiful, older casita with hacienda style vintage furniture and lots of natural light. One block from the beach. You can hear the surf from the patio and with the windows open.

Fully furnished living, dining, lounge, patio, and bedrooms. Comfy mattresses and quality linens and pillows. Kitchen equipped for those who love to cook - new hot water heater and gas stove with oven, fridge, toaster, blender, frying & sauce pans.

Open plan due to first bedroom divided off by decorative concrete block and second room without door. Curtains provide partial visual privacy. A small safe is provided for your valuables.

Two boogie boards, beach chairs, beach umbrella and 2 beach towels provided.

***PLEASE INQUIRE for lower Monthly / Summer Rates***

NOTE: bedrooms are not closed off from one another and it has more the feel of one big open space. This is traditional in many local homes. While the casita can sleep more than 4, please consider the open floor plan before booking.

House has WiFi. House has two ceiling fans for ventilation. No air conditioning nor clothes washing machine. There is a full service laundromat three blocks away.

NOISE: Casita Estrella is located in the vibrant center of town where there can be much activity. Neighbors have chickens, dogs and roosters. It is next to the local Catholic Church and the bells are loud. Once or twice a week, there is a "Rooster Mass," as the locals joke, meaning the church bells are rung at 6:30am in time with the local roosters crowing. Also, the house is off a square used for basketball and soccer play, so games go on a few nights a week. We love hearing the locals (adults and children) playing sports, like having a live sports feed. There can be a game playing or a bouncing basketball until 11pm at night on occasion. Basketball and volley ball provided. Neighbors play traditional music loud on occasion.

Why Jennifer Jako chose Lo De Marcos

Location, location, location! Close to everything in the pueblo and a block off the beach. Lo De Marcos has a tranquil and slow pace. I've traveled to Mexico ever since I was a little girl. I learned to walk, talk and swim in Campeche in the Yucatan and have watched the Riviera Nayarit grow into an international destination.

Awesome property and location!

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful time. The home is as advertised. It's really just 100 meters to the beach, not a block. You can hear the surf with the windows open. The people of Lo De Marcos are really helpful and always ready to smile. Jennifer, the owner is super!! She will go out of her way to make sure you have enough knowledge to make your stay stress free. It's such a nice village I've decided to retire there and already leased a home. Come visit, you'll be happy you did. Thanks Jennifer!!!

What a wonderful casita! So close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful casita, so close to the beach. It had everything we needed and even more. Jennifer made sure we had everything we needed before our arrival and during our stay too. She made sure that everything was perfect. We really felt at home as soon as we got there. The beds are comfortable, the patio is awesome and you walk two minutes and your at the beach. At night you can hear the waves from the casita. We are definitely going back. Thanks for everything.

What we experienced here in Lo De Marcos is quite frankly indescribable. The casita and Jennifer’s attention concerning our comfort and needs went above and beyond what we could’ve imagined. My girlfriend and I highly recommend this accommodation for a wonderful visit to Lo De Marcos.
