If you know of the Mexican Riviera,
also called the Mexican Gold Coast, then you are likely
familiar with a wonderous slice of this region called
Costa Alegre - the Happy Coast. Costa Alegre stretches
North from Manzanillo to Puerta Vajarta, winding through
a collection of smaller communities like Barre Navidad,
Melaque, La Manzanilla and Boca Iguana. The area is also
home to several exclusive 5 star resorts such as the Grand
Bay Resort of the Isle Navidad, El Tamarindo, which also
was voted one of the world's top golf courses and the incomparable
community of Costa Carayes. Opportunities for fishing,
diving, snorkeling, surfing, golfing, horseback riding,
and nature trail hikes abound. (links below)

Nestled comfortably in the center of this region, near the
small town of Arroyo Seco is 10 acres of stunning beach
front that we call Las Brisas because of the cool afternoon
Our names are John Lindseth and Roberto Vargas. We are not
developers or real estate professionals. We are interested
in one thing. Establishing a wonderful oceanfront getaway
for ourselves and a few select others who share our vision.
Candidly, this vision is not for everyone. You wont
find cabana boys or margaritas on demand. You wont
be shut off from the local people and the real pacific coast
of Mexico in a North American enclave. What we offer
is a stunning and remote beach, incredible ocean and lake
views, and nighttime skies that will take your breath away.
At the top of our hill will be only eight homes with stunning
180 plus views. Around our small lake will be eleven cozy
one- two bedroom cabanas. All will have open air architecture
to help savor that cool afternoon breeze. Fishing, swiming
and surfing fun begins at your front door at our Beach Club.
Coconuts, bananas, mangos, and papaya will be available
for the picking. Incredible local seafood will be available
from the local fisherman - extra emphasis on the word local!
You will experience sea turtles laying their eggs on our
beachfront. See a mother whale and her calf playing in the
ocean. You will sit on our beach or in your hammock in the
evening and wait for the magical green sunset flash of light
that occasionally presents itself.
For the golfer, two of the finest courses in Mexico are
within an easy drive. Tamarindo
and the Grand
Bay. If this sounds interesting read on
If you are from North America you typically first visit
places like Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta or Manzanillo.
Nice places to visit, but in so many ways just extensions
of the type of resorts one finds in Phoenix or Palm Desert
experiences. We are not trying to replicate those experiences.
If you have vacationed or traveled in this region of Mexico
you realize this picturesque area is far removed from the
violence near the border. We dont do it on purpose
but sometimes forget to locks our doors but never panic
or worry about our neighbors because they are your friends.
You can never say never but we feel as safe here as anyplace
in North America We will have a full time caretaker who
will reside on premise but if you insist on a minimum wage
guard out front then this may not be the place for you.
THIS IS PRIVATE TITLED LAND
We checked out parcel after parcel of undeveloped land and
were always scared away by the title issues. Many horror
stories to say the least It was only through the efforts
of Roberto Vargas the former Director of Forestry for the
Mexican National Government and co-owner and fellow resident
of Las Brisas that we were able to secure this incredible
piece of property and obtain private title.
It took us six years and a very detailed process to finally
obtain the clear title but now we are excited to move forward
with developing our 10 plus acre piece of paradise and hope
you are interested enough to take the next step.
