The perfect relaxing getaway

Are you looking for a quiet vacation getaway? Do you want a life of private luxury in a five-star villa, with gourmet meals prepared by your own chef? Do you want sun, sea and warm ocean breezes? Come to Casa Colibri (Hummingbird House), a magical hideaway with a free private heated pool in the secure, gated community of Punta el Custodio, perched on a promontory overlooking the Pacific Ocean, with easy access to alluring beaches, world-class surfing, jungle tours, seaside horseback riding and much more! We’re just 75 miles north of the Puerto Vallarta airport, but a whole world away from the noise and bustle of a big city. 

Casa Colibri sleeps eight adults in four air-conditioned bedrooms. It’s nestled within a tropical jungle with private gardens of exotic plants and flowers. The stairways down to the ocean are just 50 yards away. Casa Colibri has a private heated pool, but you can also enjoy the free-form community pool at the tip of the Point. You’ll have a full-time housekeeper/chef who prepares traditional Mexican dishes using the freshest ingredients.

If you have young children Casa Colibri is ideal, as its free heated pool is immediately adjacent to the main living area: you can keep an eye on your kids while carrying on with your daily activities in the villa. Casa Colibri is the only villa in our tiny community that has its pool always visible — and immediately accessible — from the main living area. There’s no wall, no stairs, no barrier between you and the kids in the pool. You will find the pool to be a kid magnet.

Important Disclaimer — Please Read Before Making a Reservation

We are an isolated vacation destination deep in rural Mexico. We have a maritime climate with salt air, occasional heavy rains and winds and an unreliable Mexican power grid: we are literally at the end of the line.  There are periodic power outages, and although we have a community back-up generator,  it is mainly intended for emergency lighting, refrigeration and water pressure. It will run ceiling fans but NOT the air conditioners.  As power outages are beyond our control, we  do not accept  responsibility for any inconvenience or discomfort caused by bad weather, power outages or other events beyond our control.

In addition, the salt air and the fluctuations in our electrical supply put enormous stress on our appliances: we have had four refrigerators in 11 years. Please understand that as this is our home, we maintain our appliances to the best of our ability, but sometimes they fail abruptly. We will make every effort have failed appliances repaired or replaced as soon as possible, but sometimes parts are difficult to locate.

If you are not able to deal with the effects of bad  weather,  possible power outages or appliance failures, please do NOT rent Casa Colibri.



“Wonderful place to relax by the ocean."

We have rented Casa Colibri twice now and it is wonderful. Beautiful open-air main palapa lets you relax indoors and outdoors at the same time, with a great little pool for a quick dip (or longer for the kids!). Rooms are nicely decorated and comfortable, with plenty of room for your stay. 


Fresh squeezed orange juice and breakfast ready as soon as we arose. All rooms maintained in spotless condition with artfully beautiful personal touches everywhere. Each room is separated from the others and with the open air environment, each maintains privacy but one can still hear the surf hitting the rocks in the evening.The lush tropical grounds are kept trimmed and gorgeous.

"Absolutely amazing!"

It doesn't get much better than this. Everything from the house to the landscape of the area was so beautiful. It is in a remote area where you are free to do as you please. No fighting crowds at the beach or small restaurants at the bottom of the hill if you'd like to step out for something different. It was as if paradise was all yours and you didn't have to share with anyone.



Your vacation getaway is waiting.
