If this isn’t enough, tantalize your sense of sight as you relax and rest your gaze upon some of the most awe-inspiring sunrises (from your terrace) and sunsets (from the main pool area) expected from a beach vacation. Just learning how to surf and don’t have your own gear? We offer surfboards for rent, and can arrange surf instructors at low, local rates as well. With eco-tours available, a vacation at Casa Sonrisa proves to be a surfer’s vacation of dreams, even for the amateur surfer. For those looking to surf in Mexico, Casa Sonrisa offers the surf vacation of a lifetime. Set upon the magnificent Riviera Nayarit within the quiet and safe and private community of Punta el Custodio (one of the best all-inclusive vacation communities, although quite different from the usual ones!), the beauty alone is enough to entice a vacation trip to Mexico.

Villa Sonrisa has one of the best views of all the villa rentals located inside the private vacation community, which offers a true taste of Mexican heritage and design. From the hand-painted Talavera tile accenting the beautiful tropical wood to the linens lined with masterful embroidery design. Villa Sonrisa offers three master suits for rent. Each one has a full bath, 2 of them with a wonderful view of the ocean and jungle scenery surrounding you,  like a palm tree grove at the mouth of the river. Whether it is time for bed or time to wake up, the sound of waves crashing mixed with soothing songbirds is sure to either relax your mind or entice your daily endeavors. There is a 4th (study)room with a twin trundle bed for  two persons.

If the sounds and scenery aren’t enough to draw you to this dose of Mexican villa rental perfection, then perhaps your private maid/cook will. Casa Sonrisa comes with a maid to help with the day to day upkeep so that you will have more time to relax and enjoy the surf. You don’t even need to worry about cooking as the maid doubles as an excellent cook if you take our additional food plan. She will ignite your taste buds with each fabulous Mexican meal. The maid is at your disposal from Monday to Saturday, when you take the foodplan she comes over Sundays too. All the shoppings for meals and treats will be done for you. This is included in the food plan at an extra rate of $230 USD per adult per week, $117.5 USD for children 5-12.

Regardless of your surfing experience, Casa Sonrisa is sure to deliver the vacation of a lifetime with its thrill seeking surf breaks to its majestic sunsets and breathtaking views. If there is any reason to take a trip to Mexico, this surf villa will satisfy your every storybook dream.

Punta el Custodio…paradise found!

My family and I were looking for the perfect, private little getaway. We truly had no clue where to begin with so many towns along the Riviera Nayarit to choose from. Michel highly recommended we try one of the villas in Punta el Custodio, Platanitos. Wow!!! It was the perfect getaway for our group. Private and remote, yet not too private and remote. There were many things for us to do from lounging and reading, to hiking and fishing. The nearby pueblo was fun to visit for a day but really we loved just hanging out between the house and walking to the common area pool. The views are truly amazing from any angle, whether it is ocean or jungle. There are many beautiful tropical plants and gardens to enjoy, not just the ocean. The gated community is small and extremely friendly, we often were invited to dinners by other travelers and nearby neighbors, of course enhancing the overall experience of our stay.

Casa Sonrisa was perfect for our stay and more kid friendly for my extremely active 2 ½ yr old than I had expected. The small plunge pool was perfect and there are stairs to hike down to the beach where the river and the ocean meet and just beyond there is another beach. I truly can´t describe how amazing the views were from the house. The beach appears to go on for miles and be untouched by man. Sunset dinners and evening cocktails were our best entertainment. We often laughed that we felt like dinosaurs were going to come peeking out of the palm tree forest, that is how pristine and natural the area felt. The garden in front of the house is huge and I really hadn´t expected to have such great views on both sides of the house….a beautiful beach beyond the back and a secret garden in front.

Thanks for the great experience.

This place was beautiful! Very clean and plenty of room for all of us. Loved having the private pool as it was nice with the children…and the adults. Great view and the pictures really do not lie. The community was also very nice…the people and the grounds. Great walk/hike down to the ocean.

I’ve been to quite a few places in the world, but none of them measured up to how peaceful and amazing my stay was at the house. I stayed in the room on the cliff and woke up everyday to a serene sunrise, meandering river and peaceful waves. The pool at the property was also amazing and had great views. Great place for the price and I can’t wait to go back!
