About the property

Villa is located on the hillside overlooking Chacala Bay. It's in the town of Chacala, but not next to restaurants where music is apt to happen on week ends. You can enjoy privacy at the villa with all the amenities one could hope for from wifi, AC, cable t.v., maid service 2 X's p/wk and views. It's a 7 min walk to beach.

Chacala is 40 minutes drive north of Sayulita. It is the most beautiful settled beach town and area I have been to in Mexico. My family and I have lived and traveled in Mexico since 1978.

About Jill Hanna Gore

Villa Cascada de Flores is owned by 2 sisters, Brisa & Lily Diaz-Hanna. It's been their mother's dream to make sure her daughters had a home in a beautiful coastal town in Mexico. After years of searching, we found Chacala. Brisa and Lily are dual citizens (Mexico & US) and the hope is that their children's children get to enjoy this amazing spot on our planet. It is truly unique in its beauty. We hope our guests love it as much as we do.

Jill Hanna Gore purchased this villa in 2009

Why Jill Hanna Gore chose Chacala

After years of searching both the Carribean side and the Pacific side for a coastal town to call home in Mexico, we crested the hill June 2008 that brings you to Chacala and saw an amazing panorama. We saw a beautiful bay and beach, embraced by hills densely covered in old growth tropical greenery, framed by mango trees & tall coconut trees. We knew it was where we wanted to be.

What makes this villa unique

We enjoy knowing our neighbors who consist of locals and internationals. It seems that those internationals who have discovered Chacala, recognize readily its specialness and want to contribute to its preservation. Chacala has a number of beach restaurants to choose from, a great coffee shop called Chacmool; a cultural center where town & cultural events occur regularly; and more recently, a number of resident artists are showing & selling their work.

We had a great vacation that we will remember forever

  • 5 of 5

We just got back and have so many great memories. We have two girls 11 and 14. They had a great time too. We rented the top floor of the Villa for a week. The rooms and deck were really nice and comfortable. Everything you need is there. Our girls were in their own room and were so excited to have Netflix (although we did get them out most of the time). It was the offseason but the weather was very comfortable. One of the great things was that the beach was only a short 5 minute walk. Once at the beach we would set up at ChocMool, one of the restaurants that are right on the beach. They have umbrellas and lounge chairs. If you buy a drink or breakfast they are fine with you staying all day. The water was perfect and the waves were great for swimming and boogie boarding. There are boogie boards at the house that you can use. The town felt totally safe and we felt totally fine letting girls go back and forth to house on their own.

We had a rental car so did several day trips. We went to the flea market one day and also did zip lining in Puerto Vallarta. This was a bit expensive but well worth it. It starts and ends with a speed boat ride to and from the location that is worth the money alone. The zip lining was really fun. We went with Los Veranos Canopy Tours and I would highly recommend them.

As I mentioned earlier we went in the offseason and had the beach to ourselves for the most part. The food was great and really inexpensive. The people couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. We were there to watch the Mexico vs. Korea World Cup Game and went to a local restaurant that was full of mostly Mexican people and very exciting.

If you want old Mexico this is the place to go. We will definitely go back again.

Beautiful villa with beautiful view. My wife, daughter and I had a wonderful time. We'll be back.

  • 5 of 5

Chacala is a beautiful, rustic little village, with cobbled roads. There's a green grocer, fish shop, tortilla factorial and a few little grocery stores with everything you need. There's lots of restaurants to choose from also. The people are warm and friendly and the beach is one of the best we've been to.

Jill's place is incredible! She was very accommodating and helped us set our spring break vacation up with the dates we needed. She then would send emails with information about the villa and area or instructions for the best way to get there from the airport. We arrived after a red eye flight, so for us it was nice to have Arturo waiting to drive us up the coast. As I've said before the villa is stunning, we loved the local art, It's really well appointed and she's thought of everything you'd need. Very comfy bed, we slept well here. We'll be back again and highly recommend Jill at Villa Cascada de Flores.

OUTSTANDING TRIP!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly wonderful vacation. We own timeshare in PVR, but decided last minute to travel. Our timeshare was booked full so we were unable to stay there. We started looking for vacations in the area. We have traveled north of PVR in the past towards Punta Mita and Sayulita but what gem we found in Chacala. We love getting out of the busy tourist areas! Chacala is a wonderful village with friendly people. The community is so great! We spent our days lounging in front of Chac Mool enjoying the beautiful beach! (Great service and the best food)

We took a few fishing trips from the marina! The fisherman are very friendly and worked hard to make our fishing trips a success! Chac Mool cooked our catch for a small price and made it one of our favorite meals! Can't say enough good things about the town.

Villa Casada de Flores is an adorable unit. Our family of four were very comfortable. It truly was a home away from home. Jill took great care of our reservations. She sent all the information we needed immediately to confirm and plan our vacation! I have never had such great service! The condo itself is so cute! It had comfortable beds with a nice kitchenette and sitting area. We enjoyed our morning coffee overlooking the ocean and enjoying the sounds of nature. It is so beautiful! We are grateful our timeshare was full! Chacala is a treasure and we look forward to visiting again! We would definitely stay here again!

Relaxing and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We love Chacalla and stayed previously at the Mar de Jade but wanted to cook some meals this time. Jill's villa was beautiful with great views and I loved both of her suites upstairs. Both are filled with amazing art and colour. Ours had a kitchen so we did not need to use the shared main kitchen. The bed is the best in Mexico! It is quiet and the rooftop terrace was especially lovely in the early am for birds and evenings for star gazing. You will hear the Chacalacas!!

Jill is very friendly and helpful and give us some good pointers. We hiked to a waterfall a few km s away and that was beautiful and refreshing. Best to take a 4x4 though! Also went to marina and hired a boat for whale watching and not only did we see mom and calf up close but many others. Then headed to a private beach with caves for a swim. Spectacular day! Best breakfast was at Casa Pacifico hands down. Not to be missed. The beach was always there beckoning and we swam daily. I made many friends with Mexican families as they are so friendly and warm. A great time! Thx to all who helped make our stay special,

Liz and Rob

Beautiful and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights here and enjoyed it very much. Jill was very accommodating and sent us lots of information about Chacala and different activities/places to go around the area. We went on a hike to a waterfall which was a great adventure. Her home is well taken care of, and had everything we needed. It is also a close walk to the beach and overall a very peaceful place to be.
