Our experience echoes the previous reviews- in a word, it was wonderful. Our 4-night stay with Heather and Kevin was easy, stress free and relaxing. They kindly picked us up in Punta Mita where we were staying for a wedding, gave us a tour of Nueva Vallarta, had a hot pot of coffee to greet us every morning. We planned much of our activities on our trip through Vallarta Adventures, and the house is a convenient 20 minute bike ride to the adventure center where we disembarked everyday. The bikes that Kevin and Heather let us borrow allowed us to explore the town at our leisure and not need to be dependent on taxis, which we really enjoyed. The accommodations were very comfortable, with a private efficiency kitchen, fridge, hot shower, and breakfast nook. It was clean and safe. We particularly enjoyed taking a dip in the pool outside our room after a long day out in the sun. For our first Airbnb experience it was all that we could have asked for and we will definitely be coming back again!

Heather and Kevin truly know how to make you feel right at home. The accommodations and their hospitality are the Gold Standard. The location provided easy access for all your traveling adventures. I loved Nuevo Vallarta and look forward to staying with them again!

I have just spent 5 days at Kevin and Heather's house in Nuevo Vallarta. It is a charming house, with a wonderful tower from which you can see the surrounding countryside. I watched dawn come up every day and marvelled at the birds and the sky. It is a short bike ride, 15 minutes to beach, and what a great walking beach at low tide. Kevin and Heather are very hospitable and helpful. Loved my own little patio where I could eat my meals and loved the general area outside the 3 rooms for evening meals, if eating in. Great time, hope to return next year.

Romy, I agree that decor and colours could be improved, but honestly, I am never sure where to start! Will keep working on it and if you have any suggestions at all, please share with us! Thanks, Heather and Kevin

It was so nice to meet Heather, Kevin and Alexa(a beautiful dog). They are the perfect hosts! We were looking for a place where we could relax and away from the crowd. Their place was perfect for that. It was very clean, cute, open and beautiful house. Kevin picked us up and dropped us off at the airport. And he even gave us a ride to the marina where we got on the island cruise. They had wifi, so we could watch movies and check emails. We definitely stay again!! Thank you so much for your hospitality!!

Read in English below. Si buscas un lugar acogedor donde puedas sentirte como en casa, rodeado de la naturaleza y la incomparable atención de tus anfitriones, no busques más. Heather y Kevin son personas maravillosas que con su dedicación y calor humano te hacen sentir más que bienvenido. Estuve dos semanas y mi estancia fue fenomenal. El clima fue muy disfrutable, los servicios de la casa funcionaron a la perfección y mis frecuentes visitas a la playa (a una distancia razonable a pie) redondearon la experiencia. Si no deseas ir hasta Puerto Vallarta, los alrededores te ofrecen todo lo que necesitas: tiendas de conveniencia, restaurantes con buena comida, etc. ¡Incluso acompañé a Kevin y a Heather al supermercado! Sin dudarlo, recomiendo esta experiencia ampliamente. -------- Looking for a cozy spot where you can feel at home, surrounded by nature and a superb attention from your hosts? Look no further. Heather and Kevin are wonderful individuals; with their warmth and dedication they make you feel more than welcome. I was with them for two weeks and my stay was nothing short of spectacular. The weather was quite enjoyable (with a few wet days), services at the house were right on point, and my frequent visits to the beach (a reasonable distance away, easily covered on foot) rounded the experience. If you don’t want to go all the way to PV to do things, there’s plenty of places that will satisfy your needs: convenience stores, restaurants with good food, etc. I even joined Kevin and Heather for a supermarket run! Without a doubt, I highly recommend this experience.

Staying with Heather and Kevin was a true pleasure! They were very welcoming and helpful giving us directions and suggestions of places to eat and explore. Their home is gorgeous with beautiful rooms. We enjoyed having the kitchenette and made good use of the pool! It was a super relaxed environment and nicely located with the beach a walk-able distance through a very safe feeling neighborhood. I would highly recommend their home to anyone looking to relax in paradise!

Heather User Profile

Our favourite vacation spot has always been Puerto Vallarta Mexico. Then we saw Nuevo Vallarta and fell in love with its quiet tree lined streets. It is a perfect change form the hustle and bustle we were used to in Puerto Vallarta. We are only a half hour from Old Town Vallarta, by taxi, a little longer by bus, so we can easily enjoy all Vallarta has to offer.

My husband and I have been full time residents of Nuevo Vallarta since 2010 when we purchased this house, which we love sharing with guests. We both have a reasonable grasp of he Spanish language and we work at improving it daily.

We are music lovers and still listen to our favourite Alberta radio station, CKUA via the internet. Both of us are avid readers, favourite authors include Elizabeth George and Ken Follett.

We both share a passion for good food, and love to cook. Kevin is working on mastering his bread making skills and I am exploring new recipes daily.

I have started a blog about our lives, sharing events in our lives, and our favourite recipes, and it will most likely turn into a food blog. Probably just what the world needs, lol.

We love to have guests and enjoy getting to know each and every one of you. Our goal is to help you get the most out of your vacation time. We are always available to answer any questions you may have. We will help you book tours, offer advice on what to see and do and we may even invite you to dine with us at a local taco stand.

Our motto in life, is simple: Treat others as we would expect to be treated.
