Our second trip to Chacala and our first of many stays in this delightful Casa. Karla is a warm and friendly hostess. Our room, the Azteca Suite, was very well appointed with every thing we needed to make meals and be comfortable. A table for four inside and a couple of chairs outside our door on the terrace for morning...

Karla was a fantastic hostess when we stayed for 7 weeks in the Mexicano Suite. Chacala is a rustic and quaint Mexican town with roosters, dogs and a fantastic beach..so don't expect the luxuries found in a highly dense resort area. The locals are friendly and a lot of artsy visitors are attracted to this piece of paradise. Our room...

We stayed at Casa Caballito del Mar for a week, in the Mexicano Suite. It was large, well-appointed, beautiful, clean and comfortable. We often cooked dinner and enjoyed the fully-stocked kitchen. We spent mornings on the rooftop terrazzo. We were only a 10 minute walk to the beach, and the area was quiet and safe. Our hostess, Karla, was welcoming...

We stayed with Karla for six nights this November. We were treated extremely well and Karla's personal touch is apparent in all the rooms--we were fortunately able to tour all of them. There were so many wonderful touches that made the Mexicana Suite feel like home--it felt as though we were truly on vacation. Karla included some basic food items...

I loved staying at Caballito del Mar. I had the ground floor suite which was spotless, spacious and comfortable. Karla has designed the space beautifully with artefacts from Tlaquepaque. I also loved the rooftop terrace for its great views over the jungle and the village. Karla herself is a wonderful person, extremely helpful and kind !

I can't overstate how much Karla (the fantastic owner of Caballito del Mar) helped make our first trip to Mexico the trip of a lifetime! Picture this: 16 friends and family members decide to descend on a tiny Mexican fishing village in the middle of fall for an after wedding celebration. Just us, the beach, and 7 days of pure...

We stayed for 4 nights in October, 2014. We were traveling with our two dogs and needed a pet friendly place that fit our budget. We were extremely pleased with the quality of the bedding, the decor and the friendly staff. Karla was very helpful and showed us other vacation rentals for future stays. Chacala is an unspoiled, safe, serene...

Karla is an excellent hostess - as she was booked for the time we wanted to visit - she went out of her way to make sure we found suitable accomodations. We visited her Casa and found everything to be to our liking, also good view from the roof. During our visit to Chacala we saw Karla in several different...

We stayed 4 nights over New Year 2013/14 We found Karla very helpful and accommodating with useful suggestions. She made us feel at home. We ate out in the numerous local restaurants but also self catered and found the suites well equipped for this. Karla seems well integrated into the local community and this helped us feel immediately at ease....
