The covered, outdoor dining space enjoys lovely views of the pool and ocean and also has a gas grill and mini refrigator. Each room offers saltillo floor tiles and is furnished with artisanal woodwork and Mexican folk art, from the hand carved headboards in the three bedrooms, to the woven huipil pillows and accents throughout the house, each offers a combination of comfort and character.

Beautiful home in private setting
Casa Molendera is a beautiful home as you can see from the photos. It is located up in the hills in the jungle overlooking Lo de Marcos, just a short drive from Sayulita. Everything in the house worked really well and we appreciated the drinking water. Gabriel filled our shopping list for us, so we arrived to fresh food and cold drinks. The fresh guacamole and salsa were so much appreciated. The beach of Lo de Marcos is beautiful, about 2 km long. It's about a 7-10 minute drive from the house, only because you have to drive slowly through the towns. The pool and yard get great afternoon sun. Very nice staff. Byron is great.

Secluded, Exotic, Comfortable.
Casa Molendera was the perfect hideaway for our first week in Mexico to unwind and decompress from City life. Off the beaten path just enough to feel worlds away yet a short drive to Lo De Marcos, Rincon or south to San Pancho and Sayulita for a more populated day out. Take advantage of the 'at your doorstep' services on offer here for a day at the beach, horseback riding adventure, in home massage or home cooked meal all of which are detailed in the comprehensive 'house book'. We especially enjoyed grilling on the patio, dips in the pool, and the magnificent vistas. The house is luxurious and spacious, every detail is in place to fully maximize your comfort and delight your senses. Wi-Fi, great sound system, wonderful kitchen, AC, and luscious beach towels. We will be back! Many thanks for a lovely week at Casa Moldendera.

Welcomed with guacamole and margaritas!
Right from the start, Byron and Nancy were very responsive to our communications. They were quick to email us with answers to our questions and to provide us with helpful suggestions to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. We were also in communication with their property manager that met us in town to take us up to the property. There we were greeted with some delicious guacamole and a pitcher of margaritas!

Casa Molendera is in a gorgeous setting on a hill, overlooking the landscaped grounds and a sweeping vista of the jungle, mountains and the ocean. The house itself is spacious and well designed, full of authentic, old world charm. We particularly loved the outdoor showers and well equipped kitchen.

The drive down to the beach and into the center of Lo de Marcos takes you through a small village full of chickens, horses and smiling locals. When we weren't preparing dinner at the casa, we were enjoying delicious meals in the beachside restaurant with our toes in the sand, or eating tacos from the many street vendors. There is even a shop with fresh squeezed juices and smoothies!

On Wednesday evening, we were fortunate enough to spend the evening in the town plaza, listening to the live music and dancing with the local crowd. Lo de Marcos is quiet and friendly with a nice long beach to stroll on and great body surfing waves in perfect temp waters. All in all, it was a great week!

Very private, gorgeous views
Casa Molendera was just what we were looking for. Gorgeous sunrise and sunset views. We were pleasantly surprised with a fresh batch of guacamole, pico de gallo and margaritas upon our arrival. After a long day of travel, we were thrilled with the treats. Housekeeper, groundskeeper and guard all kept a low profile and minimized their time on the property. It was a very relaxing stay. We enjoyed it immensely.

Absolutely Amazing House
The pictures of Casa Molendera do not even do this amazing home justice! The house is spectacular and the views even better. So much attention to detail in the home, including all the beautiful tile work, well appointed kitchen, fabulous bathrooms and amazing décor.

The home is about 55 minutes away from Puerto Vallarta but it is an easy drive. Then the house is about 5 minutes off the main road, up a hill to the spectacular view. It is just about a 5 minute drive to the adorable town of Lo De Marcos, which had plenty of great restaurants and shops. Or it is about 15 minutes to the bigger towns of San Pancho, and Sayulita, which had a great vibe and a bit more going on. We enjoyed the beach in Lo De Marcos and went surfing, boogie boarding, stand up paddle boarding, playing in the waves. We plan to return!

Wonderful casa!
We stayed at Casa Molendera for 3 nights with our three boys and we all really appreciated the design, layout, functionality and exquisite details throughout. We didn't spend all that much time in the house as we romped around the towns and beaches nearby, Sayulita, San Pancho, Lo de Marcos.

It was a wonderful place to wake up in and a great place to come home to. You could easily spend an entire day there at the case in complete relaxation. Hosts and property manager are very communicative and accommodating. Highly recommend.
