“A REAL TREASURE, NOT TO BE MISSED”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2010

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.

This is a totally different Puerto Vallarta experience! After you've done the beach, the Malacon, the tourist shops... find Kathleen and Andy and let yourself rest, listening to the river tumble over the rocks; watching the light change on the hillside jungle across the canyon; enjoy the food that Andy prepares with joy and health; stretched out and enveloped in the restful colors she has decorated with, as well as enjoying her marvelous paintings. If you are an artist, by all means, sign up for one of her retreats! Even a budding artist will learn from her in the outdoor studio... and go home with something to be proud of. This truly is a bed and breakfast that makes you feel relaxed, a part of their family, yet gives you all the space and privacy you would like. It is well worth finding, but do most of your town things first, you won't want to leave and make the trek into town very often.
