New Chacala Rental Options

There’s a nice new rental option in Chacala. It’s called Casa Monarca, and it’s right behind the Kinder, on the way to the muelle. It’s a little more than a block to the ocean and the dingy beach, and about three blocks to the big Playa Chacala beach.The owners came to Chacala from California, and settled here about six months ago. The husband is orginally from Mexico, and the whole family speaks Spanish and English. This is one of the few rentals with Wi-Fi for guests.

The family home is the second floor of the building, and the ground floor has two rental units. The rentals open out onto a very nice swimming pool , with a patio and covered palapa area. The third floor is an open terrace with a spectacular view toward the ocean and hills south of town. Really lovely.The rental units each have a bedroom, with a double and single bed, and large bath. The kitchen – eating- sitting area opens onto the patio, and has two build-in benches with thick foam pads. Two more people could sleep there. Lots of nice decorative touches in the units, including very nice tiles.The owners, Kate and Luis, speak Spanish and English. You can call them directly from the U.S. at 011 52 327 219 4125 or email them at

Other Chacala rentals with Wi-Fi for guests include Majahua, Mar de Jade, Las Brisas, and Casa Chacala. I hope I have that right)

Also Berta’s (famous housekeeper at Casa Pacifica) new rentals (below) can now be booked through Less than a block to the beach, nice kitchens, great views. She seems to have decided on the name Estrellas de el Mar (Starfish), but I’m not sure about that.If you are happy with a smaller unit, with double and single bed, with a basic kitchen on the patio, consider Angeles new units (below). I think she is planning to rent for $31.50US a night. These are brand new units, and very clean and nice. But small. They're nice affordable units, particularly nice for people who spend most of their time at the beach or out-and-about. Contact me at for more info.
