Communication with the host was not helpful until the last 2 weeks before our trip, at which time was informative and warm. The overall experience was very positive and worked well for our family. The living room space was small but we made it work. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking and serving and the bathrooms and bedrooms were roomy, private and enjoyable. We especially liked the deck outside the second story bedroom. The yard was private and the view beautiful. The pool was refreshing and was wonderful. It was challenging to find shade in the afternoon, however. This is an excellent choice for those who want to mostly stay put or to explore the 2 neighboring villages which offered a minimum of activities but included wonderful street food and an excellent fish and seafood market. The birdlife nearby was fabulous, both on the rocky beach and in the trees nearby.
What an amazing rental! Very private and tons of space. Property and pool are very well maintained. The property manager, Vanessa, is very helpful and available. Location is perfect for a secluded beach vacation. Hope to be back again soon!
After reading the other reviews before writing this, the others are pretty accurate. How is very nice. Vanessa was super nice and helpful, I couldnt find the house, so she helped us! The girls who came to clean were very nice as well. We spent a lot of our time in the pool and lounging. Beach in front of the house is very rocky, but if you walk to the left further, it goes to sandy areas. Very quiet neighborhood, we did go during slow season end of Sept thru beginning of Oct. It was just two couples that stayed at the house and we had a great time. Thanks.
This is such a GREAT rental! There's so much space and the house is beautiful. Everything is so well-maintained and we had everything we needed. The master suite is it's own apartment with private bathroom and balcony! Location-wise it's in the best spot! We wanted to be close to Sayulita but wanted to have privacy and quiet at night and that's what we got. There're are a couple of local groceries around the corner on La Cruz and they had everything you need to make meals at home, including fresh made, hot tortillas (every day!). We came here to celebrate my 40th birthday and it was magical -our own pool and beachfront! So great. There's a really nice grill there too for grilling up fresh-caught fish from the market in La Cruz. This place is a palace and I did not want to leave.
Thanks so much for the sweet review Kirsten! I hope you and your friends can stay with us again.
A great place to relax on the Mexican coast!
We just returned from our stay at Amanda and Bob's private ocean front home, and we recommend it highly. The hosts responded promptly and making the reservation was easy. Vanessa met us on arrival and make sure we were all set.
This lovely home could accommodate several couples in comfort, but with just two of us, the ground floor had everything we needed. We like to cook most of our meals for health reasons, and we found the kitchen fully equipped with gas range and all the pots, plates and utensils you could want. The Mega market just 10 minutes away had a great selection of ingredients.
Except for the occasional gardener who comes to trim the plants, the only sound you will hear round the clock is the wonderful surf. No noise from neighbors. The weather was just perfect, but if we felt at all warm, a dip in the pool awaited. We had some great long walks on the beach - just turned left from the back yard and in 45 minutes on foot we reached Bucerias. (recommended there: Rosa Restaurante Mexicana)
If you're looking for some laid-back time in the PV area, we don't think you can do better than Amanda and Bob's place.
Great House! And Amanda and Bob were super easy to deal with. Top notch all around.
We absolutely loved the place. It is perfectly located and has plenty of space for four couples. It is private and right on the beach with a small pool in the yard that allows you to feel refreshed after searching for shells or walking along the beach. We plan on coming back as often as possible in the future with as many friends as possible. There iare plenty of things to do in the area. The kitchen is well-equipped for the chefs among you to whip up tantalizing feasts. A superb place to stay and the local help was more than adequate fulfilling any needs we had. We just wish we owned it!
fantastic property. huge thumbs up. For an extended family or group of couples, couldn't ask for much more.
This is such a great find! This house was perfect four our Thanksgiving group of four young couples (each with a baby/toddler). Spacious, comfortable, awesome pool, right on the beach. The neighbors are friendly, to boot! (The house is a row house, but you definitely feel like you are in your own private beachfront estate.) The beach is quite rocky, so while it's fun for rock hunting, catching sunrises, birdwatching, and digging in the sand, for a more swimmable beach (especially with little ones), just walk a couple hundreds yards down the beach, still within eyeshot of the house. Amanda was super-accommodating about our last minute stay, too. Great hosts overall.
When I saw Amanda and Bob's home and location I knew it was the perfect place for our family vacation. Amanda replied right away, and covered all aspects of the transaction in a professional matter. She gave us great tips. When we arrived we were welcomed by Vanessa, the property manager, she is very nice and helpful. The house is exactly as the pictures and description. The beach is a little rocky but, if you walk less then 1/2 mile you will be able to lay down at the beach or swim. There are 2 or 3 big supermarkets close by. We ate most of our meals at home taking advantage of the great variety of fruits, vegetables and fish that Puerto Vallarta offers. The kitchen is well equipped, it was pleasure to cook in good quality pots and pans. The house has also a big grill that my husband enjoyed.
Marta the house keeper came by twice to clean and wash sheets and towels. She was very friendly. The pool man and the gardener were also nice and friendly.
The air conditioning works great. The house has a phone that you can use for local calls and also internet.
August, September and October are rainy months. We had rain almost every day but mostly late afternoon and nights. The sun is out every morning . Locals said that this is very typical of Puerto Vallarta .
We had a great time, thank you Amanda and Bob for opening your home to us.
We are making plans for next year for my daughter's wedding. She will get marry in Naui, just a few miles north of the house.
Amanda and Bob are seasoned travelers and were a joy to have as (email hidden) Laurel cabin. I am hoping we get to see more of you...maybe in Mexico, or Hawaii!
