VILLA CUSTODIO
Hacienda-style vacation rental

We are sure you’ll fall in love with Villa Custodio, a spacious, two-story, modern Hacienda-style villa rental. A stay at this oceanfront property brings your Mexican vacation to another level. The villa overlooks 12 miles of unspoiled beach, an environmentally protected estuary, and a highly regarded surf break directly below. The pristine, palm lined sandy beach which stretches for miles in front of this vacation property is undevelopped, and wonderful for long walks along the shore.

Both children and adults find the water delightful for swimming, and comfortly shallow. In between low and high tide there can be a strong current in the rivermouth of the estuary, so check the tide charts in the house. We are located in a secluded, private enclave of fourteen architecturally unique homes. All set in a tropical paradise of lush vegetation alongside the warm, blue-green Pacific Ocean, on a remote stretch of Mexico’s Riviera Nayarit coast. Only a 2 hour drive north of Puerto Vallarta airport.

Hacienda-style villa

Villa Custodio is surrounded by graceful red brick terraces and private gardens. It overlooks the beach and the surf break directly below, with the majestic Sierra Madre Occidental mountain range in the background. It has its own private infinity dippoing pool.

Steps away, at the tip of the Point, alongside the 400 year old Chalata (strangler fig) tree is a large common pool. It overlooks the ocean to 3 sides. To the south you chave a view to Playa Tortugas, in the distance to the north you can see the Spanish colonial port of San Blas.

The surf break in front of the villa is secluded and well-regarded along the Nayarit coast.It’s a dependable left and right throughout the year, no matter what the break is elsewhere. It’s at its best during the summer months. Best swells are from the SW (especially 215° to 230°), during the winter months they may range from 2-4 feet to overhead. For variety, San Blas, Aticama, Santa Cruz, Chalaca, San Pancho, Sayulita and Punta de mita are other notable breaks not too far away.

Google map location Villa Custodio

A mangrove-lined estuary runs back from the beach for 3-4 miles, and has spectacular bird life, migratory and local. A standup paddleboard or kayak is a perfect way to wander upstream on the water. Horses are available for rides on the beach or up into the hills for a look at the local petroglyphs.

Marine life

During the summer months, huge Olive Ridley turtles lay their eggs along the beach. The local turtle camp (internationally funded) does its best to gather the eggs and incubate them to full term. They are then released back to the water from November through January. Snorkeling is excellent in the waters in front of the villa and around the Point.

Early in the morning you can see local oyster divers in the waters with with fins, a mask and a net, stretched over a inner tube collecting oysters for the local families and restaurants. Local fishermen will be wading out to toss and gather-in their round nets in the shallow watersof the nearby estuary or along the surf line.

Local Waterfalls are enjoyable nearby attractions. A short drive and hike to the El Coral waterfall and its refreshing pool below, a picnic afterwards, is a delightful local side trip, even for young children. The extensive mangrove estuary at La Tovara, a forty-minutes drive north outside of the port of San Blas, offers boat rides with birding guides. The remarkable ‘jungle cruise’ is best taken early in the day.

The weather

Winter months feature warm days and cool evenings. There’s usually a gentle breeze as well. The ocean water is refreshing throughout the year. No wet suit is needed. The hot summer months offer dramatic afternoon lightning storms, best enjoyed from the terrace as they come across the Bay from the direction of Puerto Vallarta, to the south.

Ismael Franco, our manager/concierge can arrange for all your meals, read more about our additional food plan. He will also make arrangements for any excursion that you’d be interested in. Tina Isiordia, our long-time housekeeper, can prepare your meals (including your fresh catch!), and will keep the place spotless.

*The maximum number of guests for Villa Custodio is 8, we allow 2 persons more if at least 2 of the 10 are 12 years old or younger.
