Casa Coco is a wonderful house to stay in. It was well stocked with everything needed to cook with. There are plenty of lounge chairs if you just want to hangout and enjoy the view (which is exquisite) . As everyone else said, its a bit of a climb to get up there. We loved it but it was hard on one of our friends to climb up and down, sometimes twice in a day….Our favorite things to do were to hike up to the upper waterfall, exploring the river along the way and snorkeling by the rocks near the house (hey it was pretty good snorkeling for the Pacific),…. The host , Richard is very kind and the caretaker Felipe is great.

“Paradise Found”
Reviewed 10 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Casa Coco was a great getaway for my husband and I, and my sister and brother-in-law. The house is spacious and could easily accommodate multiple families with ease, although as others have mentioned, it would be difficult with young children. And I unfortunately wouldn't recommend it for anyone who has mobility issues (such as older parents) due to the stair climb to the house up from the path.

That said, it was perfect for us! The view is to die for, the surrounding gardens lovely and well tended, the house very comfortable and well appointed, and it is quite private. The owners have put a lot of thought into making this a great rental. There are chairs and tables in all the right places and everything you could want in the kitchen. If you were stocked with food and water, there would be no need to go to town during your entire stay. (However, Yelapa is a great place to visit, so I can't imagine not making daily forays into the village.)

What we liked best? The jungle birds and butterflies, the view, the helpfulness of Felipe (the home's caretaker), his wife Yanet's cooking, Yelapa itself, our boat ride out to Las Marietas, the restaurants in town, and the general laid back and welcoming atmosphere of this beautiful spot!

Least? Not much. The town really needs to turn the light off on the beach at night! (Not much of a problem from Casa Coco, but it is truly dreadful. I don't know what they are thinking!) Bugs weren't really a problem, but do take bug spray and use it. My brother-in-law didn't like the distance from town at first, but my husband and I appreciated the location immensely. The beds could be a little more comfortable, but I am known as a princess-in-a-pea, so it could just be me. And the wi-fi was down when we were there and cell service definitely spotty. Just turn off the electronics, you're on vacation!

My husband and I definitely plan to return again!

“Best getaway from NYC to recharge our batteries and eliminate stress.”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 for a stay in May 2014

our second visit to Coco Cabana, and Yelapa, was even better than our first. everything about our first visit & review were the same, but since we had been there last year we "knew our way around" the house, town of Yelapa, and explored further afield from our little area than before. i had a minor ear problem and had to go to the local clinic. surprisingly, the doctor was excellent, and spoke english quite well. he accurately diagonized my ear infection, and although the clinic did not have meds, and there was no pharmacy in town, we easily took a water taxi to the nearby town of Boca, and from there walked a few minutes to the local bus into Puerto Vallarta, where we found a terrific pharmacy steps from getting off the bus. it was much more professional than i would have imagined and they had the two meds i needed, for a ridiculously low price. and i thought i would be "ripped off"...but i had quite the opposite experience. we met many local people, both expats and locals, and had a great time. the only problem was that the week went by to quickly ! my girlfriend and i hope to go back every year, and highly recommend this to couples, two or three couples, or a family, although very young children should be watched carefull.

Liked best: everything, but it is not the "Ritz"...for travelers who are flexible and want to integrate into the local scene. i am a former peace corps volunteer who served in west africa, so i thoroughly enjoyed it. don't think this is for the "cruise" type
Liked least: nothing really. we had been there before, so we knew what to expect. oh, one night the frogs were mating, and they made quite a racket for awhile

“far from the maddening crowd”
Reviewed 21 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Up on the hill overlooking the bay, Casa Coco greeted me with her warm and Joyful colors
It was a joy for the senses and for the soul.
Felipe and Yanet, the household staff, helped us with the heavy weights, and we found new energy in Casa Coco's peaceful surroundings.
Although we went in March, the dry season, there were many flowers to brighten the garden surrounding the house.
A great stay with trips on the boat to the Botanical Garden and the Nature Reserve Islands.

“luxury in paradise”
Reviewed 11 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

a week at coco cabana (and casa coco) was like spending a month at home
the large and beautifully furnished and appointed house, up on a hill, overlooking the harbor
was peaceful and quite. the most noise was birds gently waking us up in the morning
nights were beautiful and you could see so many stars (we are from nyc)
there are no roads or cars in yelapa, and all of the walking around got me in better shape than we started)
so did the swimming everyday at the nearby beach, and the yoga lessons in town on a balcony overlooking the water)
back to the house!
coco cabana was like living outside
the weather was perfect and the huge terrace just outside the house invited us to be there to read, relax, look at the scenery and snooze
the house is surrounded by endless plants, flowers, trees, including a banana tree over the path, with bananas hanging up (bananas grow up!). too bad they were not ripe yet :(
we can't say enough about how terrific the house, town, and local people were
although we have traveled around the world (my girlfriend is from milan italy) and i was a peace corps volunteer in west africa in the 60's, we had never been to mexico
i have to say that i was pleasantly surprised at how friendly the mexicans were, how beautiful the country is in this area, and how safe we felt
we never locked up the house, and usually forgot to lock up our valuables in the safe provided
i think i've covered it all
we look forward to going back there again, probably time with another couple, or some family
we would have to rate coco cabana a 6 star rental

“Beautiful, isolated west coast retreat”

Casa coco is a place dreams are made of. It is removed from the tourist traps of Puerto Vallarta where we spent a few days on either side of our visit to Yelapa and it offers a great place to relax with friends.

Far more positives than negatives, but I want to be realistic. Yelapa is not the place for everyone, but it is definitely the place for me!

Positives:

Stars
Felipe and Yanet
Yanet's cooking (highly recommended)
people of Yelapa
quietness
food
hike up above the waterfall (sketchy but fun!)
relaxing on the beach
that it is not PV.
stairs going to Casa Coco made sure to keep us unplumped.

Negatives

Scorpions (But hey, we're in a jungle, right?)
Coutis trying to get into fridge (we mainly stayed up too late most nights for them to bother us :D)
during a storm the path to the town was overcome by waves, be careful going to town during a wavy day.
