Kathleen and Andy are thoughtful, intelligent hosts who have considered the comfort of their guests. The grounds are fabulously landscaped - banana, papaya and coconut trees, flowers, birds and butterflies are everywhere! The House of Wind and Water has a variety of lovely safe and secure accomodations, including studio apartments, and spacious twin and king rooms. Balconies with spectacular views of the rain forest flora and fauna provided amazing opportunities to watch flocks of tropical birds and parrots soar above the Rio Cuale. Delicious cooked-to-order breakfasts were served on the patio, and the dipping pool provided a refreshing afternoon break. There are several local restaraunts located within walking distance, or Puerto Vallarta's shopping, restaurants and beaches are just a short ride by car or bus. This is the place to go to relax and rejuvenate! AWESOME!

We cannot say enough about our stay at the House of Wind and Water . Hosts Andrew Marcus and Kathleen Carrillo are super wonderful people and made our stay an unforgettable one. Poet/sculptor Andrew is also a terrific cook, and Kathleen, a very talented artist and inspirational teacher. They are both such fun and interesting people! We slept with our doors wide open over the Rio Cuale and loved the cool breezes and the sound of jungle birds and the river rushing below......a very magical place.....and only 15 minutes from downtown Puerto Vallarta in a truly Mexican environment. The house is beautifully decorated as are the outdoor spaces which include lovely gardens, a dipping pool and water lily and koi pond. Plus, the beds were the most comfortable we've ever slept in! Will definitely go back as soon as we can!

This is about our stay at the HOUSE OF WIND AND WATER, and what glorious 11 days it was. Initially we were apprehensive to return to Puerto Vallarta after a 30 year absence - we are adventure travelers - could we still find our "true" mexico? Driving down the dusty road along the river through little villages we found it, and better then ever, at Kathleen's and Andy's beautiful bed and breakfast. We were welcome like family, shared their delicious meals [ Andy cooks a fish to die for], laughed a lot, had stimulating conversations, talked about art and our travels. Since I had just lost my mother , I found Andy's gentle way at looking at life and its losses very helpful - my soul coach ! We both loved Kathleen's art work. Her joy of life seems to reflect in her work. We had to buy one of her paintings, and every time we look at it , we are reminded of a wonderful time together. Her eye for beauty shows in the way she decorated the guestrooms. Her attention to detail, from furniture to those gorgeous silk pillows - every room different - the bathroom and its colorful tiles, the mexican dishes...We hiked in the jungle, swam in the river , and had the best shrimps and margaritas down the road beside the river in a little mexican restaurant. When we wanted to go to PV, it was just a short busride to town. It could not have been better, the fun and bustle of PV, and the quiet and tranquillity of our B&B.
We will be back again next year, Kathleen and Andy have become special friends - we hope for a long, long time.

The House of Wind and Water is a respit in the mountains of Puerto Vallarta and yet minutes to the wonderful beachfront hotels restaurants, boutiques, galleries and night life.

In the mornings you are minutes away from the Rio Cuale where you can do your walks and jogs for miles.

The Innkeepers Kathleen and Andy are hospitable and creative agents of their beautiful bed and breakfast art retreat. the food is fresh and its fun to sit around and have a cocktail on the veranda or sit in the dipping pool to cool off.

You must go!!!

My wife and I are not fond of big glitzy hotels and we seek out accommodations that are off the beaten path. We discovered House of Wind and Water while staying in Puerto Vallarta. We drove the 5 kilometers from PV Centro through small pueblas along cobblestone and dirt roads to find this unbelievable B&B hidden in the mountains of the Southern Sierra Madres alongside the Cuale River. Run by Andy and Kathleen, the B&B clearly demonstrates their proclivity as artists (Kathleen is a world class painter and Andy is a sculptor and writer as well as excellent raconteur). There are 4 lovely rooms and my wife and I stayed in one which has a view of the river. Very private and very quiet. There is even a small pool for relaxing in the late afternoon. Andy does the cooking and his meals are to die for. Although intended as a place for artisit's retreats (Kathleen conducts art classes as well), just going there to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life was our goal in booking two nights there. Every room has a private bath. Can't beat that. We never saw so many stars in the dark sky before.
