Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The casita was better than the pictures on-line. Everything works. We have spent a fair amount of time in Mexico and are used to the way things usually are in Mexico. The casita is like things at home. The deck area is perfect for us-shade for my wife - sun for me. Joe and Monica could not be more helpful. Annie is an amazing cleaning lady. The awesome beach is a 5 minute walk-beach chairs provided. After rating the rental as a 5 star, I don't know what else I can say.

Wonderful place to stay in Lo De Marcos

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this charming casita over Christmas (2017). We enjoyed our stay in Lo De Marcos immensely and would not hesitate to recommend Joe and Monica’s casita as the perfect place to relax and unwind! Casita O'Sullivan is ideally located in a quiet residential area of this small, friendly town just a 4 minute walk to the gorgeous beach. The town plaza is an easy 15 minute walk through the back streets. The casita itself is located on a corner of the main property and is very private with its own gated entrance. The beautifully landscaped courtyard has both a covered and open dining area and a peaceful water fountain to enjoy. Inside, the casita is very well appointed, exceptionally clean, and tastefully decorated in authentic Mexican style. The kitchen is spacious and Joe and Monica have thoughtfully provided every possible utensil you can imagine (even a garlic press)! The king-sized bed is very comfortable and the linens are top quality. The bedroom does have air conditioning although we found the overhead fan was perfect for a quiet night’s sleep. Joe and Monica are the most gracious hosts and are readily available to respond to any inquires you may have. Be sure to ask them about what to see and do in Lo De Marcos, and get them to show you where the “hidden Bakery” is (wonderful buns and yummy donuts!).

If you are looking for a perfect low key authentic Mexican experience, Lo De Marcos is the ideal place to unwind and truly get on to “manana” time! Casita O'Sullivan is one of the best places in town to relax and to enjoy the friendly, welcoming atmosphere created by Joe and Monica.

Beautiful little piece of heaven.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 3 weeks in this beautiful Casita Nov/Dec 2017. This was our second visit. Absolutely love everything about this spotlessly clean home away from home from the pretty Mexico decor, privacy, perfectly stocked kitchen, to the comfortable king size bed and the great shower! If you're thinking of booking, go ahead, you'll love it too.

Would Stay Here Again in a Heartbeat

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little guest house. It had everything we needed, it's on a quiet street, and it was the perfect refuge. Lo de Marcos is still a small town (2017) and we went during the off season, so it was extra quiet. This beautiful casita is about a 15 minute walk from downtown. We rented a golf cart because that's an excellent way to get around in this town, but walking works too!

Absolutely wonderful property!!

  • 5 of 5

Do not hesitate to book this listing! Everything you could want or need is provided. My daughter and I just spent 10 days here while our home in the area is being renovated and our stay there was perfect. The property is very clean and perfectly maintained. I've stayed in 2 other rentals in Lo de Marcos and this one is easily at the top of the list! Although we only saw Joe and Monica a few times, they were great hosts and made sure you had everything you needed. The fridge started having issues and right away they had someone out to look at it. When it still wasn't working properly, they had a new one brought in the following day! I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Lovely and peaceful. A Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful time we had in this gorgeous casita. From our private little courtyard to the gorgeous and colourful decor of the casita, everything about our little home away from home was just perfect.

And Monica and Joe are warm and friendly, and happy to answer questions and provide information about the area. We can't say enough about this little gem.

It's only a 3 minute walk to the beautiful beach and a 7 minute stroll to the plaza, so the entire town is easy to walk around. The people are friendly and the places to grab a tasty and reasonably priced snack or meal are everywhere. We LOVED Lo de Marcos. Especially dancing in the plaza on Wednesday night. We hope to be back.
