The most lovely and unique space in Punta de Mita, Palapa Lulú is a charming open-air studio located on the 3rd level of Casa la Bahía.

We are centrally located 1 block to swimmable beaches with great surf, seasonal whale watching, the Marietas Islands and fantastic restaurants & shopping.

This studio is a great place for both couples and solo travelers, surfers and outdoor enthusiasts, and most of all people that just want to get out of the box and stay in an authentic Mexican pueblo.

The space
A fully gated and secure property within a block to stores, restaurants, fresh seafood and butcher shop, and three blocks from the bus stop which will take you to and from Puerto Vallarta, and the towns in between.

This is an open-air studio with a traditional palm thatched roof called a palapa. It is well equipped for up to two guests and has everything you will need for a comfortable stay- blackout curtains on two sides, a kitchenette including coffee maker, small fridge, two-burner electric stove and complimentary margarita bar. There is a private bathroom and shower equipped with hot water as well. The floors are all tiled and being on the third level the breeze keeps it fresh and cool- there is also a large powerful fan if needed.

The sundeck which encompasses the other half of the studio is perfect for hanging and sunning or doing yoga, coffee time or al fresco dining in the evening. There is a hammock swing for lounging in the shade and a charcoal bbq downstairs for grilling in the sun.

*Mosquitos are not typically much of an issue upstairs, but we do have a hanging net for over the bed.

The entire house has a large water reserve so we do not have a problem with water shortages- but we do ask guests to be mindful and use appropriately to conserve as best as possible.

There is WiFi throughout the whole property as well.

Guest access
Guests have access to bbq, hammocks, and garden areas.

Other things to note
Please note, this studio is open-air, meaning there are no windows, you will hear neighborhood noises. It is like “glamping” but with electricity, kitchenette, private bathroom, hot water, and tequila.

There is a gate at the second stair case which locks and is shared by the owners, as you get up to the 3rd level there a gate that closes, but not a standard door on the studio.

We have privacy curtains which block the morning sun if wanted.

This open-air studio is available during the dry months of the year only (November-May) and although it is not typical, there may be an occasional rain during these months. We unfortunately can not offer refunds due to weather conditions.

Being open-air, you will here the typical Mexican neighborhood sounds including kids playing, roosters crowing, dogs, horses, occasional fiestas, as well as vendors selling their various goods. We are not near any late night bars or restaurants, but this rental is not the quietest and if you can not handle the small-town sounds, or embrace the local Mexican culture, which includes roosters, this may not be the right place for you. We are caring hosts but cannot make Mexico not Mexico for our guests. We keep our prices budget friendly for adventurous travelers to experience the full range of what Punta de Mita has to offer.
