Rented this house for a bachelor party and it worked out perfectly. There were nine of us in total and the house was even better than we expected. The layout of the house is very open which was perfect for a large group. The staff did a great job taking care of us. Lupita's cooking was amazing, I would absolutely recommend her enchiladas but everything she made was awesome. Luis was extremely helpful and did a great job keeping the margaritas flowing all day.
The house was in a great neighborhood and we felt very safe the whole time. Los Muertos beach is a short walk away but you can also take a taxi into town if you don't want to make the walk. I would recommend arraigning transportation to the house from the airport when you first arrive since a couple people who took taxi's from the airport had some difficulty finding the house. The majority of us were picked up by an SUV, arranged by Alvaro, at the airport and made it to the house with no problems.
All in all it was a great trip. Much thanks to Alvaro and the staff at Casa Las Amapas for making a great trip!
Take me back! I was here with 7 of my long time girlfriends to celebrate birthdays and spring break! This house is amazing! The staff were more than accommodating. The rooms were spotless and staff provided fresh towels and linens daily. Luis made us fresh guacamole and margaritas every day by the pool and Lupita's breakfast and lunch and dinners were amazing. I love the open air feel of the house and if it got too warm at night we had the option of air conditioning in our rooms. There are so many areas to spend time together on the property. We had a wonderful view of sunset and a few nights we walked over to the beach to see sunset and it was gorgeous! The sounds of the waves crashing permeated through the house day and night. Even with the doors closed and AC in in the rooms you can hear the waves crashing. The house is also a short walk to the pier, shops, restaurants and nightlife. I would recommend this house to anyone. Alvaro is a very kind person to deal with as well. We had a few minor concerns that were not related to the house or staff and he addressed them swiftly and courteously. Can't wait to go back!
Casa Las Amapas was divine. Located within 5-7 minute walk to old town and the beach clubs, the mansion is enormous and extremely private. 5 large bedrooms, vast open areas for entertaining, stunning ocean views, big pool with lush surroundings and best of all, an AMAZING staff who took care of everything we needed. Alvaro is very easy to communicate with and will make sure your stay is exactly as you want it.
We highly recommend choosing Casa Las Amapas for your stay in Puerto Vallarta. The beach-front location was idyllic, there's wonderful privacy yet an easy walk to town or to the “blue chairs” beach resort. The staff was wonderful and accomodating. Lupita’s cooking was fresh, delicious, and authentic. We can’t wait to return!
Me and a few friends stayed at the Casa Las Amapas and had one of the best vacations ever. The house itself is amazing and very spacious. Its also well located - very private, next to the ocean while still being close to the town. The entire staff blew us all away especially Lupita's delicious cooking! Working with Alvaro was very easy and we appreciate his attention to detail.
What a wonderful place!
This place is gorgeous and so well kept up by a lovely, attentive staff. Alvaro is on the ball, responsive to questions about house details via mobile and email. We had a group of 10 ladies for a lovely long weekend getaway and everyone was blown away by how beautiful and impeccable the house was from the moment we stepped in the door. Every morning a group of us did yoga on the balcony upstairs overlooking the ocean, watching pelicans perch on rocks and catch their breakfast. Twice a day, Lupita made us incredible home-cooked meals, with Raul's help, to our specifications (and we had a lot of dietary restrictions). Fresh-made salsa, mole fish tacos, chilaquiles with verde sauce, fresh fruit and salad. Delicious!
We also thoroughly enjoyed the pool area, with ample chaise lounges and relaxing sounds of birds and geckos. We had an iguana or two visiting in the trees. The stereo system hooks up easily and plays outdoors by the pool perfectly. The only word of warning is that the villa has a small local road in front of it, that locals use to get to the nearby Conchas Chinas beach. A couple of our group ventured out to have a swim and were offered drugs just outside. But they were not threatened, and the staff is there 24/7, with a night watchman too.
If you're looking for a truly pampering vacation in a tropical luxurious setting, this is it!
