Many of Our neighbours are fishermen. Watching them repair and haul their nets adds colour to everyday living on the beach.


The view from the living room really is spectacular:


Exterior space is important so we designed in a large front covered patio


and one at the back to catch the morning sun in the winter months.


Did I mention that the sunsets really are spectacular? ??

A ten minute walk down this beach you will find downtown La Peņita shops and restaurants. The malecon is just about where the last “tiny dot” people are.


We have owned it for 9 years. It is time to move on. NO REASONABLE OFFER WILL BE REFUSED.

Like most homes in the area this one encroaches on the Federal Marine Zone. We pay an annual fee for the beach concession of about US$180 per year but have not gone through the hoops to formalized the concession. Before buying beach front property in Mexico you should understand what that means.

The property has “escritura” and is held in a bank a trust like most foreign owned properties in Mexico.

The house at the back of this home is also listed so if you have a big family this may work well.
