Perfect Beach House
This private vacation rental is located on the Riviera Nayarit, 70 miles North of Puerto Vallarta International airport. Half of our guests rent a car, for the other half we arrange airport transfers.
Mexican craftsmanship can be admired throughout the villa. The richness and abundance of tropical wood, hand-painted Talavera tiles and embroidered linens make this the perfect beach house for your vacation.
Sonrisa, villa rental with a view
This villa rental has three master suites with full baths open to ocean and jungle scenery. Unforgettable views to endless and unspoiled beach Playa Tortugas and the estuary.
There is a 4th room that has two single pullout beds. Like a Caribbean island, the facing palm tree grove with bordering beach appears as if it were in a coffee table photography book.
Ride the surf in Nayarit!
Punta el Custodio offers amazing vacation villas, with activities like eco-adventure tours, fishing trips, whale/dolphin watching and visits to the surrounding local villages. The manicured gardens encircle all the houses, paths and the main pool.
You can lounge your vacation away under the warm Mexican sun. For surfers this villa rental in Platanitos is a hidden treasure; the perfect surf breaks to ride all day long! Surfboards are for rent at the gatehouse for about $10 USD per day (longboards).
Wake up to the sound of waves gentling crashing beneath you and shorebirds gracefully flying over the mangrove canals. This tropical villa rental comes with a private housekeeper. She will cook three meals a day if you take our meal plan.
The meal plan includes coffee, juices, sodas, snacks, beer, only wine and liquor are not included. Your housekeeper is more than happy also to grill up a fresh catch should you like to head out fishing in the early morning hours.

Read the Reviews
Not sure reviews or pictures do justice to the property? Casita is stunning, master has best sunrise views, patio looks down 17km of deserted beach, house opens up to let all the breezes flow.
Perla cooks great authentic Mexican food, Wendy keeps everyone organized and looks after the details. All you have to do is eat, relax, walk the beach, lay by the pool and repeat.
This is the best of non-resort vacationing. No crowds, no beach peddlers and you have to be willing to commit to entertaining yourselves.
Countryside is real Mexico with every fruit and vegetable being grown you can think of. True farm to table with a little spice…
Bring cards, sandals, Yahtzee, a few good books and a cell plan.
Have been to every resort area in Mexico and will never go to another, off the beaten path to spots like
this was a much better vacation for us. My measure of a vacation is always would you go to same place twice, this is one of the few the answer is yes!

Michel and Shannon, Our stay at Casa Sonrisa really was a glimpse of paradise! The grounds were gorgeous, the view was magnificent, the ocean and the beach were delightful!
Warm water, perfect boogie boarding waves, sandy bottom (no rocks/no urchins), and the pool was great for the kids…a little chilly for me.
Your home was just right for us….Great towels/bedding, comfortable sitting arrangements and of course, Perla and her crew were the best. They prepared delicious, healthy meals for us and kept everything neat and tidy.
They really made my vacation so restful! Not having to think about food preparation does a mother’s heart good!
My only complaints would be that the kayak had a leak, and the paddle was broken and the noseeums! We’d heard about them but didn’t take a precautions…and we all itched like crazy!
Thank you for our Merry Christmas vacation!

Beautiful home in remote Mexico
We (my husband and I and three teens + my mother) stayed at this home. Shannon was extremely helpful with all the information she gave us before we headed up to Punta El Custodio from Sayulita.
The house is gorgeous. It is beautifully decorated and the kitchen came stocked with all the appliances we needed. All of the bedding and linens were very nice, beds were comfortable.
We were there for the surf and it unfortunately was not quite working the first two days but the 3rd and 4th days we got some decent waves. We only saw other people surfing on the weekend. Perla our housekeeper was a pleasant surprise.
We paid her to prepare two meals for us + homemade tortillas. We ended up getting 4 meals out of what she prepared for us. It was all excellent.
The community pool was gorgeous and the dipping pool in the backyard was used a lot. It was definitely hot during the time we were there but we were in the water a lot so that helped. We all really enjoyed this home.
