CASA DE MITA                                                                                                                     Printer friendly version


A seven suite boutique hotel, located in Nayarita, Jalisco

In retreat from a high-energy life building chic hotels and restaurants in North America, the affable Marc Lindskog moved life and work to a more intimate scale building his seven-room villa-style Casa de Mita on one of the world’s most beautiful beaches.

Heading northward from Puerto Vallarta airport to the northern tip of the Bay of Banderas, a short detour at Punta de Mita lands you on the outside flank of the bay at Playa Careyeros. Few footprints on the long, sugary beach that fronts Casa de Mita attest to its seclusion and exclusivity.

A wooden door conceals the entry courtyard and, once across the threshold, hospitality breaks forth in the eager greeting of two miniature Italian Greyhounds whose collective energies ebb and surge with the activities of the inn and its guests.

Guestrooms have private balconies with wonderful ocean views and surround the pool, which features submerged sunning chairs and a small fountain. Your own balcony is likely to be the chosen spot for morning coffee while you site whales and dolphins. Patios and intimate indoor-outdoor seating areas on varying levels beckon for an afternoon read or an evening cocktail.

Typical of Vallarta-style architecture and design, Casa de Mita has white stucco walls, tile floors and patios, thatch and tile roofs and guayaba wood balcony detailing. Interiors are simple and elegant, with touches such as hand-cast crown mouldings. Carved armoires, headboards and doors from Michoacán add a rustic elegance. Bathrooms are a fiesta in themselves with immense showers lined with hand-painted tiles. Colourful, whimsical paintings and fine ornaments show the owner’s artistic sensitivity.

Food at Casa de Mita is a passion and so well-executed is the menu this is one resort where guests are happy the formula is inclusive of meals. It is a pleasant event to have the menu cited by your hosts — perhaps the chef himself — as each meal is a daily surprise.

Activities center on the privileged natural setting with the surrounding jungle and rivers a haven for hiking and bird watching. Everyone marvels at the ritual of the sea turtle release that takes place on this very beach. Or perhaps a marine outing is to your taste, with the nearby Marieta Islands a perfect destination for snorkelling, whale watching and bird watching. If doing nothing at all is what you choose, your hosts are expert at making that a pleasure.
