I took my partner to Yelapa to celebrate his birthday and we stayed at the most amazing place!!

Location is everything and Casa Pericos is by far, the best location away from the thumping discos, roosters, and ATVs yet only a 10 minute walk of oceanfront wonder to the quaint pueblo and all that it offers. We just returned from a 11 day trip of a lifetime!

The Casa is an architectural masterpiece, impeccably decorated and just a few yards to the ocean! There is a ramp directly into the best snorkeling area in the Bay and here it was like swimming in the Monterrey Bay Aquarium! Dolphins, turtles, tuna and tropical fish that swim with you! We even saw whales and manta rays that "fly"! Get up early to see this.

Casa Pericos provided free kayaks and snorkel gear and the staff of Delma and Angel attended to our every need. We would also recommend a romantic dinner cooked in your large kitchen by Juan and Celida that made us the best tortilla soup, fresh red snapper caught that morning!
Internet and free phone with a direct number to the owners if they are away. They are always helpful, know all of the "special" things to do and have the best fishing and tour/snorkeling boat with Captain Jay!

All floors are very special and unique. The top PentHouse is not to be believed!

My family stayed at the Casa Pericos and I figured it was a long overdue review. This place is amazing. From the easy going atmosphere to the simple but first class accommodations made it a vacation to remember. I look forward to the emails about what's going on there and glad to hear that Carolyn is still there. I hope that David is still there helping because he was a great host as well. She was attentive to our needs but gave us enough space to explore on our own. We enjoyed the walk to town and most of all felt safe and welcome by the locals (initial concern after learning that the police station was located in the back of a local store) so no worries there! If you are still reading this, book your reservation and enjoy what family time is really about! Once you leave the pier in Puerto Vallarta(which is a little hectic) you will have the best vacation ever!!!!

Thanks!

This was our second visit to Casa Pericos. The first time it was just my husband and I, so we stayed on the first floor. This time we returned with my brother and sister in law and would have stayed on the second floor but it was booked. We stayed in the Penthouse, priced better than many hotels, and had four beds available to choose from on two separate floors. Of course, we LOVED staying there. We chose the title "Luxury camping" because that was the title we saw 3 years ago that made us want to stay there. We swam in front of the casa, snorkeled, took a trip to the Marieta's Islands again, enjoyed the food in Yelapa that you'll never find in any resort town, hiked to the waterfall, and made sure to enjoy hanging out in our casa while taking in the view of the bay. We saw a baby whale playing in the bay, a sea turtle and many manta rays. Our every need was attended to, again, and we couldn't have asked for a more comfortable stay. I would recommend having the "fridge stock" service - it's nice to relax after your trip from Puerto Vallarta and the trek from the beach up the stairs to the rooms. If you are reading these reviews, you must be thinking about staying in Yelapa. Take my advice, do it, and book Casa Pericos.

Room Tip: Choose a room according to how many will be sleeping in it. They all have a view of the bay and ocea...

The sound of the surf, the smell of nature and a picture perfect view. Location, Location, Location! that said. We stayed in the lowest level which was perfect for the two of us. We enjoyed the snorkeling as well as kayaking. Watched the dolphins playing while we enjoyed our morning tea. Casa Pericos beautiful. No direct sun so the unit was never too hot, perfect spot for those who like to travel during the hotter summer months. We did get to see the other units during our stay and I have to say there is not a bad unit, all are beautiful. I would not recommend this property for children, more of a adult sort of place, great for couples or friends. Shane was a pleasure to deal with and we thank him for sharing his wonderful home with us.

Room Tip: The units are very close to the ocean, the sound of the surf crashing against the rocks can become v...

What else can I say that others haven't. Great location on the water. An awesome Swiss Family Robinson feel - we stayed on the 2nd level. Snorkeling and kayaking steps away. The town and beach bars a short walk or even shorter water taxi away. The concierge Carolyn attended to our every need - day trips, chef service, etc. It was a perfect place to decompress after the first half of our honeymoon (hiking the Inca Trail). If we ever find ourselves back in Yelapa we'll definitely stay there again. It would amazing to rent all three levels out with a group of friends and family.

From the moment we arrived, Casa Pericos did not disappoint! The view, the room, the decor, the hospitality all exceeded our expectations. We stayed on the second level but were lucky enough to view the penthouse also and each unit is beautiful and unique. We enjoyed snorkelling, (literally steps away and equipment provided) taking in the sights of the area (must see the waterfall) and loved the local eateries( all willing to deliver on foot to our room). Casa Pericos was the perfect place to relax. I can still hear the peaceful sounds of the ocean that we fell asleep and woke up to. Thank you to Shane for his outstanding hospitality. We are planning our return!!

We too relished the little details evident throughout the two units we stayed in during our 5-night getaway to Yelapa, the first but, we hope, far from the last. The location on the point allows you to feel far more adventurous than you (probably) are, lurching into town on the sea-soaked trail lit by the must-bring flashlight. The bass from a wedding band thumped across the bay into the wee hours one night but generally the sounds were all sea. I loved washing dishes (true) since the well-placed mirror on the first level also showed the beautiful bay as I rinsed the bowls with local granola and fresh yogurt. Nicole, staying at Il Jardin next door, gave us amazing massages on the massage table stored in the penthouse (definitely see if she is there and indulge with fresh air and crashing waves to make it perfect). We just added a pot of boiling water to the hot tub, making it a perfect temperature to enjoy the night we came home stuffed with 13/peso tacos from Dona Olivia up a hill from the "town" center. The kitchens were well-stocked if that's your thing and the lounge chairs comfy. The décor was beautiful and well-chosen as were all the curves and features in the structure as well. If sun is your sole goal, you will miss it as this dwelling is always in the shade, but we were always comfortable, and departed contented though, like everyone else, sorry to be leaving our palapa in Yelapa.
