Holiday Rental House
Welcome to Casa Pacífico in beautiful Nayarit, Mexico. This unit (Casa de Sonrisas) is one of two on the property. Tired of the 'walk to everything' descriptions? I could walk across the country if I really wanted to. This property is truly a walk-to-the-beach home. Stand in the street in front of the house, turn to your right, and the Pacific Ocean beckons you -- 100 steps away. In addition, there are several cafes in the neighborhood as well as small markets. 6 blocks will take you to the center of La Penita where you will find shops, markets, banks, restaurants and bars - just about anything you need. The home itself is a one bedroom with a queen bed, one bathroom unit with a great private terrace.

Tired of the 'walk to everything' descriptions? I could walk across the country if I really wanted to. This property is truly a walk-to-the-beach home. Stand in the street in front of the house, turn to your right, and the Pacific Ocean beckons you -- 100 steps away. In addition, there are several cafes in the neighborhood as well as small markets. 6 blocks will take you to the center of La Penita where you will find shops, markets, banks, restaurants and bars - just about anything you need. The home itself is a one bedroom with a queen bed, one bathroom unit with a great private terrace. Sit outside in the morning for coffee, or in the evening to watch the sunset while listening to the waves and catching the ocean breezes. Private entrance to your second floor home! A full kitchen allows you to eat in whenever you like but you are still close enough to town to head in to one of the outstanding cafes and restaurants. A short walk down the beach will take you there in minutes. Or purchase tamales and tortillas from the street vendors in the neighborhood. A large bathroom, built-in wardrobe, and a roomy living space make Casa de Sonrisas the perfect home base while you explore all that Riviera Nayarit has to offer: colonial buildings in nearby towns, surfing in Sayulita, jet-skiing, mountain drives, ancient ruins, hot springs, volcanos, markets, and miles and miles of beach. You can easily explore the nearby towns in the area - San Pancho, Rincon de Guaybitos, Los Ayala, and Lo de Marcos. You will be about an hour from Playa las Tortugas and the turtle camp there. San Blas is another hour beyond. All linens and towels are supplied (including beach towels). I have tried to equip the home with everything you will need - basic spices, cooking oil, bottled water, etc.) but if there is anything else you require, just ask. The property has two rental units as well as the owner's home. They all share a courtyard and garden as well as a pool. Beach chairs also available for guests. I am located in Colonia Pescadores in La Penita. 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 street is a mix of homes, small local businesses, a few hotels/rentals, a school across the street, and lovely neighbors! More

We could hear the ocean surf on the veranda it is a short walk to the beach. All the amenities are close by only a 5-10 minute walk. Not a lot of tourists. Off the beaten path. Very comfortable place to spend some time roomy.

About the neighbourhood
The beach is 100 steps away. The main street in town is a 5-10 minute walk depending on whether you like to wander through the neighborhood or stroll along the beach. Many activities await you: beach time, hiking, turtle camps, ruins, volcanoes, petroglyphs, hot springs, jungle and mangroves, Huichol villages, local markets and artisans, snorkeling and other water sports - so much to see and do! You will be staying in a lovely neighborhood with local businesses and families.
Getting around
Walking within La Peñita is easy. I am 5 blocks to el centro through town or a quick 5 minute walk along the beach. There you can find anything you will need during your stay - banks, shops, groceries, restaurants, bars. If you want to visit a nearby town, attraction or beach, taxis are plentiful and inexpensive. Many of my guests stay for several months and walk or take taxis. Others want to venture farther afield so they rent a car, or schedule an outing with many of the available tour guides. The choice is yours, depending on your plans.
