Andre's casa was perfect. We were a group of four friends on a long weekend and really appreciated this unique spot. There is an open air courtyard in the middle of the house where rain can fall through, an incredibly relaxing pool area, and a great outdoor grilling area.
We spend the majority of our short weekend relaxing by the pool, but also took some side trips to Mega and Sayulita to relax by the beach.
This place is not a good destination for a high maintenance group of folks. Frankly, not everything works perfectly. Some light switches are busted, it's not the most "modern" spot you can find in the area, but if you go with proper expectations, it's a really solid spot spot to spend a short Mexican vacation.
Ysella(?) who comes by every morning to tidy up is a super nice lady. We thoroughly enjoyed spending part of our days with her and practicing our español.
Overall, I would give this villa a strong recommendation assuming you're not some hoity-toity jackhole who will get upset if there's a lizard in your bathroom, or if you can't figure out how to get the outside lights to work.
Just got back from a 5 day stay at Villa White Swan and I cannot say enough good things about this house.
André was very friendly and helpful. He gave us the best recommendation in restaurant, places to visit, beaches...
The house was comfortable and very charming with a lovely patio. It was very well located, not so close to hotels and at 10 minutes walking from beach. The rooms are spacious, beautiful and a maid kept clean every day.
I highly recommend the Villa White Swan for your vacation in Nuevo Vallarta.
Staying at villa white swan with Julia,Andre and Iko couldn't have been more perfect.Charming,gracious,lively and living a healthy sun-filled lifestyle(yes julia is yoga instructor,perk!)was more than I hoped for in sharing a home with an airbandb host.The villa was gorgeous and I felt immediately indulged and on holiday in the beautiful (website hidden) felt so mexico..all open air atmosphere!Restaurants,beaches and local color were all near by car or taxi.(ask about Pedro an excellent taxi driver)Andre and Julia shared their knowledge of the area wholeheartedly when asked.I felt a part of their home yet my privacy was no problem.A very laid back atmosphere was an added treat.I'm with another reviewer in that if you found this gem,don't hesitate!I look forward to another visit and it was a true pleasure to meet them and enjoy a bit of luxury ala Nuevo Vallarta.Oh and Iko their perfectly behaved rhodesian ridgeback was a joyful addition!Thank you again Julia and Andre for sharing your home.
Andre and Julia were gracious hosts, and we would definitely stay with them again. Their home is beautiful, and it was easy to find (though Andre offered to pick us up at the airport or car rental agency). We had a relaxing stay and hope to return soon.
Andre was exceptionally kind and generous from the moment he picked us up from the airport. He gave us great recommendations and provided any help we needed. Villa White Swan is absolutely gorgeous and better than we could have imagined. The bedrooms, courtyard, kitchen, and pool were luxurious and made for pure relaxation. There are delicious restaurants and beautiful beaches nearby, we cannot recommend this retreat any higher. Many thanks to our hosts and you have struck gold if you are reading this review.
Andre and Julia are the most welcoming of hosts, and will make you feel right at home. They will go out of their way to make sure you see all the best sights Puerto Vallarta has to offer. The villa is stunning and the photos really don't do it justice. It is located in Nuevo Vallarta so the best way to get around is to hire a car although Andre is very willing to drop you off at the beaches nearby.
Andre,and wife are both great user of airbnb,and has a lot of respect for the owner,
Has a great dog that more like a child,was fun hosting the family of three,
Real cool people
