Casa Fortuna in La Penita, a colorful Mexican town just 30 minutes north of Sayulita is a beautiful two-story beachfront villa featuring 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.  The villa sits on a half-acre, beachfront lot, full of lush tropical plants, coconut palms, and fruit trees. Enjoy your morning coffee or evening margaritas in the private courtyard, with the sounds of birds all around and iguanas rustling in the treetops. Lounge the afternoon away in the refreshing pool, or opt for the generally calm ocean right out the front door. With 155 feet of beachfront, and 3 walls surrounding the villa for privacy, you are in your own tropical oasis!

Each bedroom comes with A/C to cool off during the warm, Mexican nights. Three bedrooms come with comfortable king sized beds, and the fourth bedroom has two single beds that can be made up into a king.  Linens and pillows are provided, and additional sleeping is available with the use of inflatable beds. Three of the bedrooms are located on the second floor, with breathtaking ocean and beach views. The fourth bedrooom is on the first floor, with an adjoining bathroom and a door out to the courtyard. There is also a breezy veranda that runs the entire length of the house on both floors. During the right season, you may get a chance to witness humpback whales migrating through the Pacific Coast!  

The Kitchen has an authentic Mexican feel with beautiful tile work and great appliances. We provide plenty of glassware, beautiful Mexican plates, and cookware. There is a gas oven and stove, a coffee maker and grinder to enjoy local coffee, a microwave, blender, and toaster, and a refrigerator with plenty of space to store your food and beverages.

We cater to your needs! Sandra and Rick are our wonderful, bilingual catetakers, who live in a casita at the back of the property. Both are excellent cooks and can prepare delicious, authentic Mexican meals, as well as American or Canadian dishes, for a very reasonable fee. They can also arrange for fishing trips and transportation for day trips, as well as masssages, pedicures, and manicures right at the house. Sandra is also available to babysit so you can enjoy a night out without the kids. Our goal is to ensure our guests have a relaxing and memorable vacation at Casa Fortuna, and Sandra and Rick are committed to pampering you and enhancing your stay in whatever ways they can!

Transportation to Casa Fortuna can be arranged with a local taxi driver who is familiar with Casa Fortuna and the location. You will be greeted at the airport by your driver, with your name written on a sign. For a small extra fee, your driver can stop at a grocery store so you can stock up on supplies, or you can shop locally at the markets in downtown La Penita. Casa Fortuna is within easy walking distance to the center of La Penita where there are meat and fish markets, small grocery stores, pharmacies, banks, and restaurants. You will find everything you need in this quaint, Mexican fishing village!

Relaxing and very quiet with on the sound of the beautiful waves crashing!!
We stayed here for 10 days to celebrate our birthdays with a few friends. The house is well maintained and the ocean breeze flows through the house with lots of balconies and windows to enjoy the views of sunset and sunrise. The garden area is well maintained with large trees (complete with iguanas) and flowering bushes. The pool is clean and deep enough to enjoy floating or playing in. The property managers live in the back and are available to help or cook or arrange services to the extent you want them involved. They are very respectful of your privacy but it is assuring to know they are keeping an eye on security and maintenance of the house. Easy walk to town and to restaurants. Definitely more of a local fishing village feel and less touristy focused area. We had housekeeper cook 3 meals which were great and so easy to just stay "home" for dinner. You can also easily walk to the next town over which is busier
and more tourist focused if you need more variety.

We liked the quiet and less busy area where the Casa is located.

We had massages and pedicures at the house and enjoyed both.

The bedrooms are large and had plenty of breeze - we did not need AC at all

The upper balcony was perfect for morning workouts and yoga to start the day...

There is a lot of outdoor living space which is where we spent most of our time....

Wonderful week
We spent a week at Casa Fortuna, 2 families of 4 (4 adults and 4 kids) and had more than enough space for all of us! The property is well taken care of by the on site caretakers who were there if you needed them, but never intruded on our privacy.
Pool is beautiful, warm and clean!
The ocean wasn’t swimmable for us during the entire week (even though the 4 kids are normally really good in the ocean) so we definitely needed our car to go visit other close by beaches which were more appropriate.
We loved our stay and if we ever go back to the area we would definitely go back to Casa Fortuna and would recomment it!

A memorable Christmas!
We spent an amazing Christmas at Casa Fortuna. There was plenty of space for the 6 of us, with a bedroom to spare. The property and gardens are beautiful, with a variety of shady and sunny spots to choose from.

Mada and Francisco (the resident property managers) were very friendly and helpful, and Mada made us incredible meals for 4 dinners during our stay, which ended up being big enough to repurpose the leftovers for breakfast or lunch the next day.

The community is authentically Mexican and peaceful, with the exception of some late-night festivities on Christmas eve (fairly common in Mexico I imagine). For those unfamiliar with La Peñita, it was about an 800m walk from Casa Fortuna to the main street of town, where we found everything we needed in the shops and produce markets, however, there were a few shops and restaurants much closer. The beach of La Peñita was quiet compared to the very busy beach in the neighboring town.

Thanks a lot for allowing us to stay in your beautiful oceanfront home!

Great stay and value!
This was a great first time experience for our adult kids and their friends. Got to experience culture and great food. The excellent value of this beach front house and the local food allowed us to splurge on other things like fishing trips, boat rides, massages, and hiring Sandy to cook us meals was hands down a wonderful treat. Rick made us the best bbq ribs I've had in a long time! The dirt road to the house was a bit hard to find since we rented a car and there were no street signs. The pool was quite large and was refreshing after walks to and from town. Downtown was only a few blocks away. Neighboring town only 1.5 miles and was a nice walk on the beach for lunch. First couple of nights there were fireworks going off for religious celebration but that's just part of being in Mexico! Bedrooms had AC and was a must due to hot and humid weather. Ocean breeze was very nice.

Best family vacation ever!
We visited Casa Fortuna in Feb 2018. It far surpassed our expectations. We are a family of 7 adults. The house was perfect offering many places to gather as a group or the ability to find a quiet spot to get away. The house is very beautiful and sits right on a swimable clean beach. You can walk to La Penita town in 5 minutes. Sandy and Rick are amazing caretakers of the property! I hired Sandy to cook for our family. Her meals were outstanding! We were in culinary heaven. Everyone in our group from 22 to 52 had a fantastic time. Sandy ensured anything we needed was provided from grocery shopping to arranging a fishing trip! We preferred our stay here and our ability to discover Mexico far better than 5 star resorts we have stayed in many times. Thank you for sharing your home with us... We had the best vacation! Everything was perfect! Carmel and Chris and family from Vancouver BC
