Absolutely amazing house! Craig was always incredibly prompt at getting back to me. Jamie (House Mgr) was always in touch when we had a question here and there while in-country. Everything is exactly how it looked in the pictures. I would definitely get a rental car if you want to get out of the house (We never really wanted to leave!). The Airport is about 15min away and town is about 25min away. If you're unsure about driving, they provide you with a list of regular cab drivers (We used Santos the entire time - 5 stars). Can't wait to go back!
We loved the home and didn't want to leave as it felt like our home by the end of our stay! As beautiful as the photos are, it doesn't do this gem justice. Every detail was immaculately planned into the design. We were an adult family of 5 so we had plenty of space. We could have fit many more people into the villa too - it's a welcoming, fun space whatever the occasion. Craig generally responded back to my questions within minutes and was helpful in every way. We loved the area too. It's quiet with a beautiful view of the marina, nice sunsets and easy access to beaches and supermarkets. We rented a car, which I advise so you can sightsee around the wonderful area and discover the fascinating towns like Sayulita and Bucerias - in addition to Puerto Vallarta. We did a lot of activities through Vallarta Adventures and they are wonderful. They are also located just a few short blocks away. The home is stocked with towels and amenities. There are a tremendous amount of great restaurants to check out. While Craig had lots of cards in the house about restaurants it would have been helpful and appreciated to know his favorites. Here are ours: Upscale - CafedesArtistes in Puerta Vallarta. Request to sit outside. Authentic - El Brujo in Bucerias. Local - Eddie's Place at the Marina. Enjoy!!! You can't go wrong staying here.
We had a great 4 days at Casa Marlin Azul. Beautiful house with all the amenities one would expect, plus a few more! Will love to come back soon!
I had a great experience! My friends and I came to celebrate a bachelorette party and we all fit comfortably and enjoyed the house. We were 11 girls so when I say we all fit comfortably you can imagine how big the house is. The pool and backyard are fantastic! The host was great and helpful, everything we needed was there at the house or on the booklet with recommendations. Short drive from airport and to the main city of Puerto Vallarta. We all absolutely loved our stay here and would definitely stay again.
Great house! Ennough room for 11 women and a pool to die for. We jhad a blast and the owners, Craig and Lisa were very helpful with all their insight and quick responses. PV is a great place for fun in the sun!
nuestras vacaciones estuvieron estupendas gracias a airbnb y la confianza que te da al momento de la reservacion y de la comunicación que tienes en todo momento con el anfitrión. excelente en todos los aspectos.
Craig and Lisa were extremely responsive prior to the trip, which was great. Their house manager coordinated keys on arrival, and also departure so it was really easy.
Overall the house is gorgeous and the private pool & BBQ are really nice. It's a great air bnb.
My only feedback is that it could use a bit of a deeper cleaning in some areas (e.g. fans extremely dusty, I had to wipe down closet hangers to use them due to the amount of dust gathered, etc.) But I'd recommend the property.
Gorgeous rental -- the best Airbnb I've stayed in. We loved the privacy of the home and resort-like amenities (private pool, spa, poolside bar/grill, ample lounge beds, etc.) Private dock made it easy to have a boat pick us up for the day to snorkel and go whale watching. I recommend buying groceries at Walmart and cooking in! We never wanted to leave the rental!
Lisa and Craig were very professional and responded quickly to my emails. I'd love to visit again!
House was exactly as described and easy communication with host via email. Emails were always answered promptly. Great place to stay, all the amenities in the house that was needed like condiments and towels and soap etc. Quick walk to beach and supermarket and an easy drive to walmart for a big grocery run. Beautiful house and we were sure sad when we had to leave!
Lisa was very helpful and easily accessible if we had any questions. The house was as described, it was a beautiful home that had a lot of great amenities. The bar and jacuzzi were great. The house was a good size and well kept. Overall, it was a good stay and I would recommend the home to any one going to Nuevo Vallarta.
