A faded beauty. I must preface this review by stating that we like the owners. In addition to the main house are 3 other suites. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit that truly had a beautiful view from Bucerias to Old Town. The equipment ensuite was adequate, although it would have been preferable to have the TV in the living room as opposed to the master bedroom. It would have been better had the shower curtains not been torn, the dishrack not rusted nor the bathroom drain clogged that required us to buy Drano.
Some words about the main house. It's lovely but in need of work. The awnings are a mess, the upper balcony leaks and living room water treatment requires major repair or replacement.
Our primary concern was the grounds. They are in horrible condition. The pool area was green with mildew. The outdoor bar area was a disgrace with canvas turning green and leaf covered and in need of replacement. The water feature behind the bar didn't work. As for the BBQ, it should have been tossed in the trash a couple of years ago. The tools were a rusty mess. The bar/patio seating was in tough shape.
General maintenance of the property is poor. I would say that it has gotten away from the owner and will require some effort to bring it back into shape.
One final thought. The pictures on Trip Advisor are at least 3 or 4 years old. If only this place looked so good
The jungle is winning.
My family of six stayed here over Christmas. It was a beautiful home that had everything we needed. Cora the property manager and Peter the owner were very helpful and easy to work with. We plan to try and stay again in the future when we visit Puerto Vallarta again.

The villa was stunning. The month we stayed it was very hot and humid. Storms about every night which added to the humidity. There were13 of us and the villa met all of our needs. We used all 6 bedrooms. The housekeeper was just the sweetest. Didn't speak much English but we were able to communicate with each other. We were very close to town but we rented 2 cars so we could do some exploring. Be prepared for high insurance. Be prepared for crazy drivers. We are never renting a car again. We had an issue over use of the a/c so find out about that before you rent. I didn't travel from hot Kansas to vacation and not have air!! We compromised by leaving it off while we were gone and keeping the high large doors shut during the day. Other than the ac issue it was wonderful. We had our own pool and plenty of room to relax. I would go back but not in June or the next two months as that is the rainy season.
