Casa Colibrí is an extravagant villa of four separate buildings tucked into lush tropical gardens, with huge, ancient strangler fig trees and cascades of flowers at every turn. It's  steps away from the Pacific Ocean. The private, kid-safe, pool (can be heated for $25/day) is located just beyond the open-concept living room allowing swimmers to enjoy the water and still share the company of others not in the pool.  [MOM ALERT!!! You are no more than 5 seconds away from the pool when in the main living area.]

A large community pool at the ocean's edge is also just steps away for those wishing to swim laps, lounge in the sun, enjoy the company of other guests or simply enjoy a comfortable space to read and spend time with friends and family.

You have unlimited access to surfing, bird-watching, whale-watching (in season), deep-sea fishing, and eco-adventure tours. The villa has four separate buildings, which makes it ideal for those who value private time. The estuary next to our headland attracts thousands of shorebirds and waterfowl. From November through March you will be able to see calving whales and dolphins.

The living area ("Main Palapa," a. k. a. Sala Grande) and kitchen are sheltered under a massive palapa that opens out to gardens and the private pool. The full-service kitchen is spacious, modern, and is run by Moña Delgado, your cook/housekeeper. The round marble dining table in the center of the open living area seats up to14 and was hand-crafted by artisans in Guadalajara.

Speaking of dining, Casa Colibrí, offers an optional meal plan run by our our property manager Ismael Franco and payable directly to him. If you purchase the meal plan, Moña will prepare your meals to perfection. She will do the same, of course, if you choose to bring your own foodstuffs, or, if you are gourmet cooks and like to prepare meals yourselves while on vacation — have at it! The plan includes three meals a day, one case of beer (24, not 12 bottles) per adult per week, snacks, virtually limitless freshly-squeezed orange juice (not just at breakfast), and can be modified to meet special dietary needs.  

The cost of the meal plan is $270 USD per week per adult, half-price for kids 5 to 11 and no charge for kids under 5.

Note: If you purchase the meal plan and have more than four people in  your party, a helper housekeeper will be provided at no extra charge. If you don't purchase the meal plan and have more than four people in your party, our cook/housekeeper will prepare your meals from the foodstuffs you bring, but she will still need a helper to deal with laundry, makinbg up the bedrooms, cleaning the house daily, etc. The cost of the helper is $370 Mexican pesos a day, payable directly to Ismael Franco, our property manager, who employs all the staff for the houses he manages.

Casa Colibrí offers four air-conditioned suites, each with full bath. There is a fifth full bath right off the main living area for your day guests who use the pool or spend time at the beach.

Two bedrooms have king size beds, one bedroom has a queen size, and one has twin beds which makes it perfect for kids. The twin beds can be joined, if needed, to make a third king size bed. Each suite has a full bath. The upstairs master bedroom has a large private terrace.

Starting in October, 2022 Colibrí installed the Starlink Internet System, which provides free, high-speed Internet via three WiFi networks in the house. Each of the networks has the words "Starlink Colibri," and all have the same password; there is a laminated card in front of the main router with the password. There is no data limit, nor is there a limit on how many devicies can be connected at the same time. In February, 2023, during a week-long birthday celebration, there were as many as 21 guests on the networks at once.


We are located in rural Mexico and are, in fact, at the very end of the high-tension power lines. There are frequent brief outages — seconds to minutes — and infrequent brownouts and blackouts that can last hours and, rarely, even days.

Casa Colibri shares a 48 kW generator with seven other houses, so in the event of prolonged outages, you will have power for essentials: lighting, refrigeration, water pressure, small appliances, floor and ceiling fans, Internet, charging for cell phones, etc. What you will not have is air conditioning, as using the air conditioners would exceed the generator’s capacity. Prolonged outages are unusual except in the rainy season (June through October), when windstorms and lightning strikes knock out the power lines. The rainy season is also the hottest, most humid time of the year. If you are not OK with braving hot and humid weather without air conditioning, you should not rent Casa Colibrí.

Renters cannot bring a dog or dogs of any size or breed into Casa Colibrí. Any Colibrí renter who arrives with a dog or dogs will be denied entry at the gate. This policy is because of recent problems with dogs in our small community, and, as owners, we can no longer accept liability due to excessive noise or injury to others that dogs may cause.
