About the property

Beautiful house in magical, safe community. Stunning nature surrounds you.

Casa Lazuli is located in magical, private and safe community Punta el Custodio, a 70 minutes north from Sayulita ( 2 hours from Puerto Vallarta airport).

Traditional Mexican style, Casa Lazuli is one of 14 private homes in Punta El Custodio. The nearest village, Platanitos, is within walking distance and nestles into a gentle bay hosting several outdoor restaurants. Typically the area is very quiet during the weekdays, but holidays and weekends are enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. Your private housekeeper and cook, ensures that your needs are looked after creating the ultimate vacation experience.

This is a rare property that affords peace and quiet on the magnificent shores of the Mexican, Pacific Ocean. Rolling waves, cascade and break beneath the patio where you witness the transformation of the ocean and lull of the tides from sunrise to sunset on the outdoor patio. A private, negative edge pool connects you with the water without having to leave the spacious deck.

The ocean challenges local surfers - join in or enjoy their entertaining exploits! Body surfing and boogie-boarding is also a great pastime. When the tide is low, walk across the beach and estuary to connect to the 12 mile long beachfront. Daily walks are guaranteed to keep you fit. A big community pool is within steps of Casa Lazuli and a perfect play pool for children of all ages.

At Punta el Custodio we offer a food plan at $230 USD per adult per week, children 5-12 $115 USD. This includes 3 meals a day, prepared by the staff, and all the shoppings for ingredients for meals plus drinks, snacks and fruit are done by the staff. Only liquor and wine is not included, see more about our food plan below, just above the manager info. Ask for details.

Day trips can be organized with drivers or if you rent a car, directions to fabulous shopping at nearby local markets such as Zacualpan, San Veras or San Blas which is about 30 minutes by car. Perhaps you want to consider a fantastic shopping excursion over-night to Guadalajara and be sure to include Tlaquepaque where all the great shopping is located. Our staff can suggest accommodation or provide driving with a guide if you desire.

We have an on site staff, which includes English speaking on site manager, daily, private maids in all houses, gardeners, handymen, driver and full time security at the entrance gate.

Casa Lazuli is an opportunity to step inside Mexico and experience the rich, diverse culture of quaint villages, local cuisine and untouched landscapes in a safe, secluded environment. Rest, relax and let the sun and ocean revitalize and revive your spirit. Welcome to Casa Lazuli - the best that Mexico has to offer!

We would have loved to be able to offer good working, fast internet in all our houses. However, we are located in rural Mexico, it still isn’t possible here to have a reliable, fast internet connection with unlimited data download.

Here is our advice:

Internet access in our houses is not guaranteed. Our houses have fairly reliable 3G cellular access* in some parts of the houses, with no limitations and at no cost to renters. International data plans are now offered by many cellular carriers, either at a reasonable additional cost, or already included in your existing plan. We highly recommend that you contact your cellular carrier before your rental begins, and activate a data plan for Mexico that meets your needs. This way, you will be able to access the Internet on your cellular devices, or you can use your smart phone as a “hotspot” so that you can access the Internet on non-cellular devices such as laptops and tablets.

*At busy times of day, such as mornings and evenings, when the local cell towers become overloaded, the 3G signal can sometimes weaken or vanish. The villa is in rural Mexico, where cellular service is still in its infancy.

Rentals from Saturday through Saturday!

My name is Michel Striekwold. Originally from Holland, I moved to mexico to live and work over here in 2006. In 2008 I started my own villa rental company in Puerto Vallarta. In 2009 I visited Punta el Custodio for the first time, me and my little family were invited to spend the weekend with one of the owners. From the moment we entered the gate we knew we were in a very special place.. We have spent more than 40 weekends or more since then in all the 14 houses at Punta el Custodio, and everytime again we feel we are in paradise. Since 2012 I focus only on 8 villa rentals at Punta el Custodio, Casa Lazuli is 1 of them.

MICHEL STRIEKWOLD purchased this villa in 2001

Why MICHEL STRIEKWOLD chose Compostela

Casa Lazuli is one of the more luxurious houses at Punta el Custodio, with a magnificent view to 12 miles long Playa Tortugas.

What makes this villa unique

Punta el Custodio in itself is a magical place, with a very special atmosphere. It is one of these few places you call paradise. Casa Lazuli is perfect to rent with a larger family. friends or more couples to share the cost. Our excellent onsite staff makes sure that the villa is perfectly maintained and that our guest will have everything they need. You can discuss special food needs with our onsite manager, and arrange tours in the neighborhood through him. There is 24 hour support, we have a guard at the entrance. Punta el Custodio is located in one of the safest regions in Mexico.

Beyond expectations

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not show the beauty of this home nor the perfect location.

We arrived in the evening (with dinner awaiting for us) Completely in awe of the size of the home, we toured saying the word “wow” every 30 seconds.

the view left us breathless, I could not wait to sleep and wake up to the view.. it felt like Christmas Eve when I was 5 years old!

Micheal was our primary connection and he was quick to respond to my many questions leading up to our visit. A special thank you to your assistance in recommending the casa, as well as introducing me to Ismael (the site manager)

Ismael is incredible! He lined up two surf instructors to arrive the next morning and daily massage for us by Erika

Rocio was our beautiful chef and housekeeper. She was friendly and very attentive to what we needed without asking. Her cooking is really good and pressed fresh orange juice each morning.

One thing I missed during my planning was to BRING CASH! I Somehow missed that note in our correspondence, and only brought a minimal amount. I’m grateful that Ismeal trust us enough to wait till the last day to go to the bank machine. As the nearest one is 45 minutes away. I’ll be smarter next time!

There is NO wifi. But who cares! You’re in paradise. I stayed connected with my phone and it would skip between towers and time zones.

We are planning to return very soon! Hoping for annually!

Owner's Response: Maria, Thank you for your review, we are happy that you enjoyed your stay that much! I know you were a bit concerned before arrival whether everything would be taken care of. I know Ismael and the staff do, always. We hope to see you back!

We were really looked after by our Housekeepers Rocio and Raquel; the place is beautiful

  • 4 of 5

This is my 3rd time staying at Casa Lazuli and I love it more each time I come back. It is situated in Punta el Custodio, a gated community that sits on the edge of a Peninsula. The staff are amazing at keeping grounds well cared for and everyone is so happy to help us. A beautiful place for R and R; the ocean only a few feet away, as well as the community pool which sits beside the most beautiful 400-year old Chalata Tree. I can’t wait to come back next year!

Fantastic property, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful and secluded location with good access to miles of uncrowded beaches. The home sits on a low bluff, just a few meters from the ocean with excellent southern exposure for unrestricted sun and ocean views. The home was well designed to accommodate our family of 7 with spacious indoor and outdoor living areas. The property and villa staff were gracious and accommodated our every need. The food was excellent and abundant as was the onsite and offsite management and service. We would recommend this property for a group wishing a peaceful and tranquil setting with close access to the ocean, where we spent many playful hours in the waves.

Because there are only small grocery stores in the area, we offer the "meal package".

The meal package includes three meals per day, prepared by your private maid/cook, as well as abundant beverages and snacks, and bottled water. The beverages include excellent Mexican beer, various soft drinks, and freshly squeezed orange juice. All the shopping will be done by the staff.

Cost is $230 USD per week for adults, $115 USD per week for children 5-12.

Nayarit is a state of bountiful produce, and every street corner has a market selling fresh fruits and vegetables, both grown locally and brought from other parts of Mexico. Our cooks are plentifully supplied with the freshest of produce, dairy products, and meats. And of course there is the sea, where fish and shrimp and even oysters are brought in daily. Our housekeepers are very flexible both in catering to individual tastes as well as to special dietary requirements. We encourage you to discuss meal planning with them at the beginning of your visit, and thereafter on a daily basis if you like. They want to prepare all the meals in accordance with your tastes and preferences--hot or not, etc.

Ismael, our on site manager, sells a variety of wines and liquors in his little store in the Office. The package represents a terrific bargain in terms of price, quality, and convenience.
