CHARMING, COMFY, MEXICAN STYLE CASITA...... 1-Bedroom, 1-Bathroom, Sleeps 2
About Monica O'Sullivan
My husband and I have been full time residents in Lo de Marcos since 2009. Like many others, we arrived one day to have a look and never wanted to leave!
Monica O'Sullivan purchased this Cottage in 2009
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
I can honestly say that in our 9 years of travelling to Mexico, Casita O'Sullivan was the best place yet! This sweet house had everything we needed and then some. The place was spotless and very well cared for. And the king sized bed ... well.... that was the cherry on top! It was so comfortable! There is air conditioning in the bedroom but we didn't have to use it as the ceiling fans and open ( screened) windows created a beautiful cross breeze.
Although it's only a 3 or 4 minute walk to the beach, we found ourselves hanging out on the patio most of the time just reading, talking and laughing. Joe and Monica are lovely, kind and generous hosts and were available if we needed anything...which we didn't. The place is beautifully decorated with warm Mexican colours and a very pretty stained glass window in the bathroom. There was a safe for our valuables and a gate to the property that we could lock at night or when we were out. We felt so secure. I could go on and on but hopefully readers will get the drift by now... the place was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! Thank you so much, Monica and Joe!!!
Spent two wonderful weeks in this beautiful casa and lovely laid back Lo De Marcus. From the beautifully landscaped private patio and garden, to the well equipped kitchen and comfortable furnishings no detail has been spared. The quiet little town provides several restaurants, not fancy, but good food, and the small shops stock fresh vegetables,supplies , a bakery baking fresh each day, plus an organic pork butcher and beef butcher. Lo De Marcus has a long sunny beach no more than a three minute walk from the Casa, which despite suffering damage from the hurricane Willa, is absolutely gorgeous. Several small towns are easily accessible by the frequent bus service or collectivos( small vans).
The owners Monica and Joe were a dream to work with and while respecting our space, could not do enough to make our stay perfect.
And perfect it was.
We didn’t realize the owners lived on the property
It was very expensive for the size & location, 3 blocks from the beach, also the owners living on the property in back of rental left us feeling uncomfortable, since we enjoy playing music & having friends over, i would have picked a bigger more private place had I known.
We are sorry that you feel our Casita is "expensive, small and lacking privacy". We have many return guests and reviews that disagree with you.
I think that the "privacy" issue stems from the fact that your daughter decided to join you and we were not able to accommodate her, due to our max 2 person policy, (although, we know you sneaked her in anyway), more than you not feeling comfortable entertaining friends and playing music. After all, that's part of any vacation
You arrived demanding a refund because you had booked another place in San Pancho, before even saying hello or walking in..
We loved it, the place is terrific
This is how every vacation place should be. Totally clean, well organized, beautifully furnished, secure, and very well equipped. Joe and Monica have created a wonderful oasis, in a quiet neighborhood, close enough to everything but far enough away. We will be back!!!
The casita was better than the pictures on-line. Everything works. We have spent a fair amount of time in Mexico and are used to the way things usually are in Mexico. The casita is like things at home. The deck area is perfect for us-shade for my wife - sun for me. Joe and Monica could not be more helpful. Annie is an amazing cleaning lady. The awesome beach is a 5 minute walk-beach chairs provided. After rating the rental as a 5 star, I don't know what else I can say.
Wonderful place to stay in Lo De Marcos
We recently stayed in this charming casita over Christmas (2017). We enjoyed our stay in Lo De Marcos immensely and would not hesitate to recommend Joe and Monica’s casita as the perfect place to relax and unwind! Casita O'Sullivan is ideally located in a quiet residential area of this small, friendly town just a 4 minute walk to the gorgeous beach. The town plaza is an easy 15 minute walk through the back streets. The casita itself is located on a corner of the main property and is very private with its own gated entrance. The beautifully landscaped courtyard has both a covered and open dining area and a peaceful water fountain to enjoy. Inside, the casita is very well appointed, exceptionally clean, and tastefully decorated in authentic Mexican style. The kitchen is spacious and Joe and Monica have thoughtfully provided every possible utensil you can imagine (even a garlic press)! The king-sized bed is very comfortable and the linens are top quality. The bedroom does have air conditioning although we found the overhead fan was perfect for a quiet night’s sleep. Joe and Monica are the most gracious hosts and are readily available to respond to any inquires you may have. Be sure to ask them about what to see and do in Lo De Marcos, and get them to show you where the “hidden Bakery” is (wonderful buns and yummy donuts!).
If you are looking for a perfect low key authentic Mexican experience, Lo De Marcos is the ideal place to unwind and truly get on to “manana” time! Casita O'Sullivan is one of the best places in town to relax and to enjoy the friendly, welcoming atmosphere created by Joe and Monica.
