A landmark since 400 years

Casa Chalata, a charming and affordable 2 bedroom vacation rental may be a landmark 400 years from now. But the landmark we are talking about is the 400 year old chalata tree at Punta el Custodio to which this property is named after.

This fig tree stands proudly next to our large community pool, only steps away from Casa Chalata. From the upper terrace, surrounded by palms and other trees, you can see the top of the Chalata tree, as well as the ocean.

About Villa Chalata

Villa Chalata has 2 levels. Downstairs are the 2 bedrooms, both with A/C and King size beds. One of the bedrooms has an en suite full bathroom, the other bedroom shares a full bathroom with the living room. A sofa/futon in the living room sleeps an extra 2 persons.

The downstairs living room is a perfect place to relax from the party upstairs, to read a book or watch a movie. The house comes with a daily private housekeeper, so you will have plenty of time to enjoy the house, the community pool and the impressive nature that surrounds us.

Affordable vacation rental

Paradise for surfers

The upstairs floor has a spacious sundeck with views to the ocean, a gas barbeque, and enough space to entertain. You will enjoy the refreshing sea breeze, after all, you are in hot Mexico! A second living room with a full kitchen, inside dining and sitting area, provides space if the breeze doesn’t cool you off enough.

A sofa bed and a full bath for 2 more guests in this upstairs living room make this house suitable for 6 persons (4 adults max.). To make your vacation fully enjoyable, we suggest taking advantage of our additional meal plan, so you won’t have to cook, do shoppings or wash the dishes.

*The maximum number of guests for Villa Chalata is 6, but no more than 4 of them can be adult. The 2 futons in the downstairs and upstairs living rooms can be used as beds for children, these are not fit for adults. The 2 downstairs bedrooms, each with a King size bed, is where 4 adults can sleep.

The pictures of this beautiful place, while lovely, don’t begin to show how gorgeous this home and the property surrounding it really are. I was blown away by how secluded and private the compound was, and by how excellent we were treated while we were visiting. The people who work on the grounds are so friendly, and the massive amounts of food they cooked for us were excellent!

I received two wonderful hour-long massages during my week-long stay, both from Cinthia, and they were amazing. There are plenty of fun activities to do off the grounds too, like fishing and horseback riding, but it was just as nice soaking up the sun by the beautiful pool that overlooks the ocean!

Even though we were tucked away, there were amenities very close by if needed; Zacualpan was the nearest little town, and we went in to dine out, pick up groceries, and grab some delicious ice cream! Oh, and there was a great little market right up the street for any little things you want to pick up (and their chicken tortas were awesome!).

There really is no need to even leave the grounds if you don’t want to; everything you need can be provided just by asking the friendly staff at the gatehouse. You don’t have to clean on this vacation; the staff was always there to clean up before you could even get to it! There was a wi-fi service available at the gatehouse as well, so if you need to check email, it’s no problem.

The house and grounds are extremely well taken care of; all of the plants surrounding the homes are so beautiful, you really feel like you are in a little paradise. I highly recommend this vacation home; it was the best, most relaxing vacation I have ever taken! PS: take the boat ride and do some fishing and whale watching! It was an awesome experience!

Everything from the gate of entry to the compound was impressive. The people that work to maintain the compound and help the visitors are also great. The house just steps away from the ocean. Walk down a 1-minute path and you are at the top of a rustic well-designed staircase to the beach.

The house layout was good for relaxing while others are in the detached kitchen and patio if they wanted to be more lively. If you want to go fishing by boat or horseback riding on the beach, just contact the front office and they can set all that up for you. The boat people for fishing were on time and really nice, and the horseback riding group the same. I really relaxed and had a great trip overall.

Thanks again!

I agree with all of the other reviews on this site. Casa Charlata was perfect for us. We were traveling with another adult couple and the layout of the house was great. If you wanted to be together, the entire upstairs indoor/outdoor kitchen and dining was a perfect place to enjoy the company. If you wanted solitude, head downstairs to the cool and quiet bedrooms. The gatehouse staff were exceptionally helpful and had everything we needed. We purchased the meal plan and couldn’t have been happier. I would definitely recommend it. The food is fresh, really well prepared and abundant. We didn’t want for anything.

From a size perspective, Chalata was great for 4 adults. It could have accommodated 2 small children, but I wouldn’t do more than that. There are other properties within the community that might be better suited for large families or groups. If you’re traveling with a big group, I would definitely recommend renting a few of the properties. They are all close to one another and the community pool and nearby beach are a great place to meet up.

The community is pretty secluded–as mentioned by other reviewers–but there are two great towns within a 30-minute drive in opposite directions. Zacualpan, mentioned by another reviewer has everything you need and San Blas is even bigger. Neither is over-run by tourists, so you get an authentic Mexican experience. All of the nearby beaches are great, not too crowded, but have everything you want for a beach outing.

The house and grounds were meticulously cared for. The showers were hot and strong. The food was outstanding. The community pool was great. I can’t recommend this place enough if you are looking to enjoy a relaxing vacation in Mexico that is luxurious except for the cost. Go!!

Casa Chalata was absolutely excellent. Combined with the food/service package it was the best vacation spot my friends and I have been to. The landscaping in the enclave is beautiful! The Playa Tortugas just steps away was like having your own deserted tropical beach! Totally relaxing. The house was really comfy especially the upstairs kitchen/patio. The food service was more than we expected. Plenty of everything and with a nicely varied menu.

Cynthia our chef was simply wonderful and sweet. Ismael the concierge was always available to provide help with everything from tours to a selection of wines. Thanks to everyone on staff and also to jeffry the owner for all his tips on the area. Hope to go back soon. We’re telling all our friends to check it out and would certainly recommend this Casa to all.
