“Beautiful villa with fabulous views”
Reviewed October 5, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Just loved this villa. Had a wonderful 4 night stay with family visiting from Australia who were just in awe of the panoramic views, beautiful gardens, patio (with a bar!) pool ( what a blessing on a hot day) and the tastefully decorated villa ( Mexican decor).
Watching an incredible lightening storm from the patio was an amazing sight.
Comfortable beds, lovely bathrooms, spacious seating areas, pool and patio made this a fabulous place for a relaxing place for a vacation.
Special thanks to Nester who was amazing!

“Beautiful view nice location yummy”
Reviewed September 5, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A very beautiful place with a great view. Pool at unit is very clean an deep. Has great natural flow through ventilation and the management is top notch. The location is close enough to town to walk, there are stairs (a lot of them) to take you down to the south end of Playa de los Meurtos. The funicular is there if you don't like stairs. The big shared pool at the complex is very warm and also deep. It is a little noisy as the unit is about 80 feet above the main road and the trucks on it are gearing down for the hill, me and my wife are pretty much immune to that as we travel a lot in Asia. Very pretty place in good condition

Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review. We're glad to know our property manager is taking good care of our guests and the unit. We're sorry to hear the trucks were disruptive. PV has a law forbidding the use of jake-brakes in the city, but it appears the authorities are being a bit lax in their enforcement of that law during the summer months. Aside from that issue, we're glad you had a good experience and appreciate you sharing your observations.

My husband and I spent a couple of days at Casa Rosa.. The view is amazing and the private pool a luxury! We recommend this rental. The bed was comfortable and the master bath is extravagant. Nestor, the property manager is one of the nicest people I've ever met. The owners, Gary and Karen are helpful and answer all questions promptly. We will definitely rent this villa again if it's available. Next time we travel to Puerto Vallarta we wI'll visit in spring or fall, summer is too hot.

“Peaceful getaway in your private Mexican casa”
Reviewed April 3, 2015 for a stay in March 2015
11
people found this review helpful

We debated whether to vacation at Casa del Sol as there were very few reviews available. Now hesitate to give a glowing review in case it becomes too booked to return.

First, who shouldn’t stay here:
If you have physical liabilities. The villa is built into the side of a hill and there are about 50 stairs to get to and from the unit. Also while only about a 15 minute walk from the beach and Zona Romantica this is also a steep hike (or a short ride in numerous taxis).
If you’re a security freak. The front shutter doors are not lockable. However the villa is completely gated and really no access from outside. We felt completely safe & secure and only mention it as it could bother some people.
If you’re here for the party scene. This is a private & peaceful getaway.
You are located well above a fairly busy road. There is some traffic noise but generally not aware of it.

Why we loved it and plan to return:
As you enter it is immediately apparent you are walking into a Spanish casa and not a standard condo or hotel. Tile & stone floors, terra cotta walls, architecture etc. Open louvered doors in large living room and bedroom bring the outdoors into your living area. Just a few steps outside your living room is your private tile pool with bubbling fountain. Adjacent to this, outside bedroom doors, is a covered patio & bar area. Beyond this is a large partially covered terrace and garden area perfect for peaceful lounging. Spent a lot of time here and never closed the doors except at night.
Oh, and that steep hill up from the beach & town? Well as you kick back on your terrace with a tall cool one you have a beautiful panoramic view of the red tile roofs below you then opening to a 180* vista of Banderas Bay and the Pacific beyond.

A few tips if you stay here:
Nestor and his staff are great and can be very helpful. Suggest you arrange transportation with them from airport. In e-mail arrangements also suggest you indicate you would like to stop by the Mega store for groceries on the way from the airport. We didn’t realize there is only one supermarket in PV and it’s much nearer the airport than the condo. Have a shopping list for your stay made up. There are local mini markets for emergency supplies of beer, wine & chips but not a whole lot else. Bottled water available at condo.
We obtained a much more favorable exchange rate purchasing pesos at our local bank before the trip.
Really ideal for romantic couple getaway. Second bedroom is quite small, best for younger kids or very small adults.
Unit is well maintained & clean.

We greatly appreciate your taking the time to write a review of your experiences and observations regarding Casa de la Rosa II. Thanks for providing some tips that will be useful to future renters. I think I'll revise some of the information I send to our guests so it includes those tips. One correction to the review: The condo is named Casa de la Rosa II, not Casa del Sol.

“Fantastic condo, great location”

We stayed in this unit over spring break 2015. We were 5, myself, my wife a 13 year old, 9 year old and 6 month old infant. The unit is absolutely beautiful, the neighbors friendly and the service provided by Nestor and owner Gary top-notch. We would strongly recommend the unit and hope to stay there again next year. The only word of caution I might have is that the quiet hours necessitated by the very open units might not make it the best choice for young people with an eye to partying late into the night.

The unit itself is as beautiful as the pictures imply with breathtaking views of the bay, a large outdoor area, in-unit pool, two bedrooms, 2.5 baths and a large family room and kitchen. It was very comfortable for the 5 of us and Nestor, the owner of the management company, was nice enough to provide a pack-and-play and high-chair in advance of our arrival for the infant. The complex also has a much larger, heated pool with a deep-end up one flight of stairs from the unit that the kids loved. The complex is on a very steep hill but there is a tram for those who need it down to the street. There are a few stairs involved in getting from the tram to the unit for anyone with severe mobility restrictions. Btw, don't bother with a stroller, if you happen to have an infant. Even if you use the tram the entire town has stairs, narrow sidewalks and cobblestones so a stroller is less than worthless. We just used a bjorn, which worked great.

The location is also great; a very short walk to playa los muertos and Olas Atlas and it is easy to get a cab to anywhere you like as it sits just above the main road out of town, with constant cab traffic. The best restaurant in Puerto Vallarta, Bistro Teresa, is directly across the street on the main road. There are quite a few stairs down to the beach, which is only about a block and a half away but down a very steep slope, but for anyone unable or unwilling to negotiate the stairs you can just take the tram to the street and grab a cab for less than 3 dollars. The area, for those that are unfamiliar, is very charming with lots of independent, organic businesses, not the corporate, disney-land feel of the hotel zone to the north. The area is family friendly with a multi-generational flavor and large gay population. Playa los muertos is a good beach with many different places to choose from for drinks and food with umbrellas and chairs/chez lounges provided. North of the pier the beach becomes intermittently pebbly, but there is still plenty of sand in patches and at the water level to walk along. The boardwalk that starts at approximately the pier, heading north for quite a ways is a little more touristy-feeling and the beach not quite as good, but still a good area overall. I was very glad that we opted for our condo instead of the hotels in this area, however, especially as the unit was significantly cheaper than they would have been. There are many beaches available in either direction by road (cheap cab ride) or in less accessible places (water taxi) that have a bit more of an idyllic "corona commercial" feel for those interested in that. We weren't able to commit to some of the more interesting day trips to islands and other beaches due to the infant, but did make it to Misalamoya, just ten miles south, which has a wonderful beach, snorkeling, a very hands-on zoo, jungle-type adventures and tours of the set of predator. There is as little or as much available to do in the area as anyone would wish for.

Overall, again, we would highly recommend the south end of town and this unit in particular as a great place to be based on your visit. The area is great, outperforming our expectations, and we will be back.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts about Casa de la Rosa II and your Puerto Vallarta experience. Yes, you got to see a lot of the "real" Mexico. Although Puerto Vallarta is growing and becoming more modern, it still retains it's origins as a charming and delightful fishing village. We hope you'll consider staying with us again should you plan another Puerto Vallarta vacation.
