From our arrival in PV and our boat adventure with Feilipe to Yelapa, the welcome greeting and town tour with Mark and Angie, not to mention the fabulous pie and stocked fridge, our stay was topped off by the most spectacular views ever and accommodations that exceeded every expectation. Yelapa is truly a hidden gem but Casa Flourish made our family wedding trip part of the most memorable experience of a life time. We cannot wait to return!
Annie and Jay, you have done it right! Congrats on creating such a beautiful home and for sharing you dream.
Best wishes for an amazing 2017!!

An old friend of mine has been coming to Yelapa every winter for years, and this year I finally got my act together and booked this wonderful casa. every day we looked at one another and said, Wow! This is the best vacation ever!! Two families (with two children each) shared this space beautifully. The open layout made us feel connected but not on top of each other.... the bedrooms were beautiful and comfortable... the pool was a bigger than I expected and great fun for adults and children alike. The views from the house were absolutely gorgeous, and we enjoyed the sounds of the crashing waves below and the birds/iguanas/coatis that lived in the trees and brush nearby. The kitchen had everything you needed to cook a terrific meal (gas stove, oven, microwave, toaster, large fridge), but we took a vacation from cooking and enjoyed the delicious offerings in the village and the beach. We loved walking everywhere and the fact that there are no cars... The owners were extremely helpful in planning our trip and put us in touch with a local "concierge" who stocked our fridge before we arrived so we could make our margaritas and snack on delicious banana bread as soon as we arrived after a long day of travel. I really can't say enough wonderful things about this place.... it was a perfect place to relax and get away from it all, and just "be" with our family and friends. Thank you, Annie and Jay, for creating such a magical refuge and sharing it with us. I cannot wait to return!!
We were very impressed with Casa Flourish!!! Beautiful & convenient accommodations. Air conditioned bedrooms were great. The pool is wonderful for onsite swimming on non beach days. Full service kitchen was great for onsite meals. All of our needs were handled by Jay & Annie & their amazing staff. What an adventure with great accommodations. We will be back.
Where to being about Casa Flourish. From the momment I contacted Anne and Jay they have been extremely helpful, responsive and went above and beyond to make sure all went well with our stay. Jay even called personally a few days prior to check in. When we arrived at the dock we were greeted by Carolyn and Felipe and given a tour of the village on the way to Casa Flourish. The house is beyond words, we could not believe it! The pictures do not do it justice. It is even better.
Then there is the beautiful village life of Yelapa. From the kind, gentle, proud people to the well behaved, cared for dogs roaming the streets. So many excellent place to eat and a good variety of things to do and see. We had big plans to go and do and see everything but found we were so content just being at Casa Flourish and roaming the village. Our favorite beach area was a Playa Isabel. But we really enjoyed our private pool even more. I have never felt so safe and comfortable
We spent a week and it was not enough. In that short of time you start connecting with the people and the area and never want to leave. You truly unwind, relax and become fully present. Such a gift!
Thank you Anne and Jay. We will be back!
Casa Flourish is unique among places to stay in Yelapa. It is extremely conveniently located just a couple minutes walk to the beach and a minute to the village. And yet, I had a feeling of total privacy while at the property. It is also a rare opportunity to have a private pool in Yelapa. The beds are very comfortable, something I really cherish in a rental. The house is newly built and really beautiful. There is plenty of room to gather and enjoy good company. Just one word to the wise: very young children would be hard to supervise here due to the pool and stairs. Our youngest was 5 which worked fine.
We were a family of six - two grandparents, two parents, and two children aged 10 and 8. The accommodation was excellent and the situation romantic, overlooking the bay and the beach. It is a bit of a struggle to make the last few steps if, like us, you are 80!,, but once installed you might well not wish to be anywhere else. We were particularly impressed by the way we were looked after on arrival and departure at the pier and our luggage was miraculously taken away in a wheelbarrow to reappear in the villa when we got there. Yelapa is a world away from the tourist whirl of Puerto Vallarta, and a stay not to be missed. We came from the UK, and it was worth the trip.
I loved this place. It's by far one of the nicest houses/palapas to stay in Yelapa. Annie and Jay are awesome. They take such good care of you before, during an after the trip. They have someone meet you at the boat dock, walk you through the house, and show you around. They offer to stock your fridge before you get there, and have a wealth of resources available. The rooms are beautiful. My only adjusting piece of feedback is that three of the bedrooms are not private. One bedroom is in a loft above the living room so it's tough for someone to sleep there if others are still awake in the main house. Then there are another two bedrooms that are connected without a partition. You have to walk through one room to get to the other. We had three couples in the house when we rented it and it was tough to get privacy. That said, I think it would be a great rental for a family.
