Description of the Miramar de Santa Cruz vacation home rental
Please note:
Casa Simpatico has two bedrooms and a bath downstairs and a separate self contained studio above. Please note, I only mark the calendar when both units are occupied.

Located directly on the ocean, in a protected bay.
A stay in " Simpatico " is rich and rewarding for everyone who has visited. It is a very good value!
A classic style bungalow in an area of Mexican vacation homes and real Mexico, Spanish is spoken.
There is a clear swimming river alongside the property, the gardens, and wide ocean view. The house is right on the ocean with a nice sandy beach about 5 minutes away. A couple of low key places to eat fresh fish and have a cool one are a 10 minute walk the other direction down the beach. Groceries are 5 minute walk past that. Or simply take the bikes that are provided. There's buses from the airport, they stop very close to "Simpatico".

Small taste of heaven

March 26, 2015

When we walked into the studio after dark and a long day of travel we were greeted by the pincomparable whooshing of the ocean against the shore. We slept in the rustic wrought iron bed and in the morning awoke to a jungle of exotic trees pressing in from all sides of the screened and windowed porch. We enjoyed our simple meals which we shopped for in San Blas and in the villages close by. We dined, slept, and relaxed to the sounds of the ocean in the simply and charming tiled and furnished space. The small kitchen with propane stove half fridge and sink served our needs. The grasses property led down to the ocean and paths to little Miramar one way and the beach the other. The sunsets were beautiful and we had a wonderful view of them every night. The bathroom was nice to come back to! Only suggestions I have are to update the foam mattress and dishes.

Owner's reply:

Thanks Kelly and Mike, for trying Casa Simpatico.
And for taking the time to post these comments!
We'll update the mattress ASAP. It was the first time
that both units were rented at the same time, so we'll take note.

Awesome Beachfront House!

January 2, 2013

San Blas, a sleepy little town that I frequently visited decades ago… and recently I had a chance to go back! At first I was disappointed that I wasn’t able to book a place in town, but Casa Simpatico, being a few miles away turned out to be a better choice for several reasons. The location is away from town and also away from the mosquitoes – which is one problem with San Blas, and being on a semi private beach is always awesome! Casa Simpatico a fairly new house (10 yrs?) and is well furnished with everything you will need! I especially loved seeing a French press for my coffee since I forgot mine! The house is on about an acre or so and there are no neighbors within sight – so the lot seems much bigger. If you get tired of the beach there is a lot of green grass shaded by coconut palms in the yard, which as mentioned is steps to the beach. It really doesn’t get much better than this! It certainly will take long before I return again!

Simpatico Fantastico

October 16, 2008

When we arrived at dusk in the property, we were amazed by the sunset view and the huge beautiful yard facing the sea. This place is very simple but very welcoming and Andrew, the owner, is now improving the comfort (a new bed that would have made a 5 star review, is now on its way, too late for us unfortunately). We were a few feet away from the rocky shore (some locals with their family enjoy it too...), 5 or 10 minutes walk for restaurants, a few miles away from an incredibly long and sandy beach where the sunsets are terrific! Despite the moskitoes (depending on the season), we had a great time and Simpatico is a great retreat for people who do not like the touristic globalization of Puerto Vallarta (1h30mn away). Definitely a great deal.

A true Mexican experience

October 3, 2007

None of your big resort amenities. You get the Pacific Ocean set in a tropical jungle. With a fresh-running stream right next door. There is no town, but little outposts along the way. Fish, fruit, cold beer. Need more? Think you won't like it? You don't know because you have not tried it. I did and loved it. Beyond peaceful. And, world-class surfing 15-20 minutes away.

Great expierence in old Mexico

August 8, 2004

This place is a definite sleeper. It won't get any better when it is found out. Inexpensive, great for the kids, fresh fruit and veggies, and locally caught fish. This is what we had in mind when we wanted quiet. Very comfortable with all the basics provided. Aricely cooks for us and does the laundry- great family. Roberto is indispensable.
