3 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom Beachfront Home
- English, Spanish
We're Scott and Ron and we are an example of what happens to surfers when they stop surfing for a while to make a buck. We are both lost souls who got sucked into the real world. You know what were talking about, freaking corporate treadmill, rat race, mommy wants LuLu Lemmons, how many colors do hydro flasks come in?, yea that... We met in the Bay Area working together in the tech sector, Ron was the sales dude and Scott was the engineer that kept Ron from selling stuff that would not work together. Today we both are still working in the bay area, raising kids and counting the days until we can enjoy this place for more than a week at a time. We both share a similar passion in surfing and have found this area of Mexico to posses some of the best, uncrowded waves. Were both two fun loving goof balls.
Scott purchased this House in 2016
Why Scott chose Saladita
We bought this property more for therapy than anything else I think. Having a home in a primo surfing local is every surfers dream and further, having a home in Mexico is a total adventure. The two of us have traveled quite a bit throughout Latin America and when we discovered La Saladita we looked at each other, realized that we were in a very special place and with no hesitation took the leap.
What makes this House unique
What made us fall in love with this home ? First we loved the pace of the pueblo of La Saladita and where it is in its evolution. We liked the fact it was not all built out and that the evenings were silent all but the waves crashing out front. The home is very unique in that it sits away from what little "hustle and bustle" exists in La Saladita. It is a 10 minute walk south along the beach to the nearest restaurant/bar and we liked that. Also, it unlike the bulk of beachfront homes in La Saladita as it has a natural reef in the back yard that makes for a magnificent framing of the sunset as well as offers interesting explorations during certain tidal periods. It is always changing and that was special too. The home is a charming, simple two story home, in a perfect location. The property itself is 1.5 acres and it is VERY quiet. The wave, yes the wave at the point (5 minute drive,10 minute bike ride, 20 minute walk) was the initial attraction. The first time I surfed it was in May 2016 (wow 5 mos ago from writing this) , Ron and I caught the point on an good sized, long period south swell, the wave machine produced the most wonderfully shaped left hand peelers that went on forever. If you are looking to get away, snag some choice waves that you will never forget and just want to chill, then you could not ask for more than this place.

Gorgeous house, great beach
Thank you Scott for the wonderful place to stay! The house is gorgeous; quiet, and secluded, while being close to the great vibes and restaurants of Saladita. The beds were amazing, the kitchen well equipped, and the views of/breeze off the ocean are magnificent. I really hope we get to go back someday soon.
It was an absolute pleasure to have you, your friends and family.
Thank you for the great attitude !
I really hope we hear from you again!!
Perfect in every way
House, facilities,beach just perfect. Would go back in a flash.
Hands down the best family vacation ever!
We just returned from Playa La Saladita and we can't wait to go back. Everyone involved with Casa de las Palmas, from the owner to the caretaker, was amazing. Maura helped us out with so many big and little things before and during our trip that it was like having a professional tour guide/best friend on standby 24/7. The people in the area are amazing - very gracious and kind. The local food was delicious and the service was first rate. The casa and the grounds are very well maintained and the location is amazing. With the view from the lanai, the sound of the ocean, the sunsets and the peace and quiet, I have never been in a more relaxing place. This was a family vacation with my wife and two kids (12 and 14). We have been fortunate to have traveled to many beautiful places in Mexico and Hawaii, but we all agree that this place is at the very top of the list. The positive reviews for this casa really do not do the whole experience justice, as words cannot really capture how well taken care of Scott and his team made us feel from the minute we booked and all throughout the trip. The whole flight back we could not stop thinking about the things we will do the next time we visit. There are not many guarantees in life, but this place is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and some wind in your sails - Thanks so much Scott, Maura, Bernard, Paty and Erwing!! Hasta luego amigos. Rick G.
5 star home and location
Fantastic home and location. Comfy beds and the view of the ocean from the deck and main living area is breathtaking! Nice to stay a bit away from the hustle bustle at the point yet not to far to walk to surf. Owner Scott was super responsive and all was seamless. Do over for sure! Thank you
Perfect, secluded, private paradise for our two-family vacation
We thoroughly enjoyed our (too short) vacation in tranquil La Saladita. Casa de Las Palmas was the ideal home base for our two-family party of seven. Everything we needed was there: ample kitchenware and working appliances, water toys for playing in the ocean, first aid kit, speaker to plug in an iPod, plenty of beach towels, comfy hammocks, games and books, intermittent (at best) internet (which we definitely did not miss!) lots of shade, and most importantly direct access to the warm ocean right out front. The beach sand was not there during our visit, so we were happy to have brought river shoes for traversing the rocks. There were pesky mosquitoes in the evenings when the sea breeze dropped, so don’t forget long sleeves/pants.
Epic sunsets every night with fresh margaritas, easy 8-minute drive to the surf point in the mornings... why did we leave?
The owner, Scott, made time to be in touch before during and after the trip to ensure that our visit was up to expectations. The team on site were helpful friendly and professional. We had zero issues with security or safety.
Highly recommend this for larger groups looking to unplug, escape the noise of the modern world, and relax.
Spectacular Saladita beach house
Beautiful well appointed home for a family or friends beach vacation. Large kitchen and deck with fantastic west facing views of the pacific ocean. Stunning sun sets nightly. Let the crashing waves lull you to sleep after a day of surfing. Enjoy the privacy of en suite bathrooms with all three bedrooms and loads of hot water. Hang in the shade of the beach-side palapa while you sip a margarita. Scott and Erwing will help you arrange anything you need. Fabulous stay all around. Muchos Gracias todas.
La Saladita is notorious for the world class left hand point break and other surrounding surfing destinations. The wave here, as well as the very mellow vibe is the draw.
However, Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo are resort towns with every luxury and accommodation one could ever want. From a classy marina and high end restaurants to the historic promenade and old town charm one would expect from a seaside Mexican city.
