GREETINGS: My name is Lance, and I own and manage the Fresh Breeze Inn where LIFE IS SERVED SUNNY SIDE UP! The Inn is situated on a hill above the small fishing village of Chacala, Nyarit with nice ocean views from each of the three Bungalows. The Inn is an easy 7 minute walk to the beach. A nice fresh breeze usually comes up in the early afternoon, hence the name “Fresh Breeze Inn.” We keep the Inn clean and upbeat, and I really do enjoy my role as innkeeper and host. This will be our fourth year, so the Inn is relatively new and very well maintained. I live in unit #4 (second floor) and am available day to day to help with information, maps, outings and adventures or to address any problems or questions you might have.
All of the water is now safe to drink at the Inn due to a new in line ultraviolet light and filtration system. I have just finished installing digitally programmable wall safes in each apartment to keep your valuables truly secure. The area in front and beside the Inn is one of the best bird watching areas in Chacala. Over 60 species were recently identified from the third floor patio in less then a weeks time. Birders often come up the hill and watch in the early morning. I have a list of birds of Chacala that is available.
Chacala remains a safe haven. The local people are generally friendly and welcoming. There are unusually good relations between the internationals and local Mexicans because of positive interactions during the past 15 years.
We painted the entire Inn this spring. Our beach was ”certified” last year which means it is one of the cleanest beaches in Mexico! The south end behind the beach has been reopened and cleaned up for RVs and campers. Our ocean cove provides a relatively safe place to swim, kayak and go on ocean excursions in the motorized “pongas” for fishing, whale watching, etc. Reservations can be made at any time. High season (when most visitors come to Chacala) runs from November first through Easter.
Specific information and photos of each our vacation rentals is available by clicking the list on the left side of this page. There are three Chacala vacation rental units at the Inn. Vacation rental #3 is already booked for next season from Nov. 1st through to the 1st of March 2014) I keep the availability calendars up to date, so check them out for an available booking. (task bar on the left of this page) Vacation rentals #1 and #2 are on the first floor, and Vacation rental #3 is on the third floor. All three have high-quality queen bed mattresses. Vacation rental #1 also has a futon that opens into a soft double bed and can accommodate up to 4 guests) Vacation rental #2 has a narrow day bed and can accommodate up to 3 guests. Vacation rental #3 also has a soft double futon and can accommodate up to 4 guests. The newly tiled and finished patio on the roof has great views in every direction. The garden in back has a terracotta barbecue and is shaded in the afternoon. Because the Inn sits on a dead-end road above the postage stamp sized village, it is relatively quiet. We do have dogs and roosters, as well as vendors driving around broadcasting their wares.
We have two high quality boogie boards available for guests use. Click the toolbar down the left side of this page for specifics of the Inn and surrounding area. Chacala is a great place to relax and enjoy verdant nature at it’s best…It is our little piece of Paradise.
