“Wonderful vacation rental with a marvelous view of the bay.”

This place has it all. The moment you walk in, you know you picked the right place. The interior is very nice, the master bedroom is large with a king sized bed and the en-suite is beautiful. The kitchen is small but has everything you need to make breakfast lunch or dinner, plus there is a Weber grill on the terrace. Ah yes, the terrace. That is where we spent a lot of time relaxing when we were not taking in the sights or Puerto Vallarta. It has a small pool and a large enough area for both sun and shade. Great place to sip on a glass of wine and watch a sunset. We will look to rent this unit again the next time we go to Puerto Vallarta.

We stayed at Casa de la Rosa II for 3 weeks from February to March 2016. Gary and Karen promptly answered all of our questions prior to our booking. Nestor and staff were very helpful. We felt very secure during our stay and made full use of the condo.

We enjoyed our stay so much so that we booked another stay in 2017.
Thank you to Karen and Gary for having us back!

“What a beautiful place!”

My husband, Mom (86) and I stayed at Casa de la Rosa for 12 days in January and can't say enough about this lovely condo. We could not be happier with the service provided by the owners Gary and Karen and their property manager Nestor. Nestor picked us up / dropped us off at the airport, took us grocery shopping, arranged taxis when needed, recommended restaurants to eat and was just a phone call / e-mail away for our entire holiday. What a wonderful resource to have when vacationing in PV!

The condo is a traditional Mexican style, lots of stucco and tile but cozy and inviting. The terrace is absolutely beautiful with a view you could sit and look at all day. The pool on the terrace is refreshing, to say the least, but the communal pool upstairs is lovely and warm. Lots of loungers available and for the most part, we had the pool to ourselves for much of our stay.

There is some traffic noise (tends to be louder at night) from the highway below but nothing a good pair of earplugs wouldn't fix.

Would we return to this condo - in a heartbeat!

“Stunning View!”
Reviewed February 8, 2016 for a stay in November 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Beautiful place with stunning view. I would say if your not into walking steep stairs or hills this place isn't for you, although they do have a lift to bring you up, the trick is you need the key to access it. When we first arrived our cabbie didn't want to bring us up the back-road to the lift. I eventually convinced him....he wasn't happy, and i could see why it was crazy steep to drive up!!! Didn't think we were going to make it.
All was well with being greeted upon arrival and given a tour. Place had a really great layout with shutters that open up to the large patio area with pool. Very private unit! My only complaints were because of some really loud construction going on it was nearly impossible to sleep in past 8 am. Also the road noise at night is pretty loud, as there are only the shutters to block the sound.
I would stay again though as the price was good, and the location was really great, although it was a steep walk home a few times, I really liked it as it burned off all those calories I took in each day, so I needed it!

Bonus: there's free wifi and a phone to call the States or Canada, free of charge!

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review of your recent stay at Casa de la Rosa II. We're pleased you enjoyed the unit and it's amenities. Yes, we know there are lots of hills and stairs. Without them, though, one couldn't be treated to the awe-inspiring views that make a visit to Puerto Vallarta so memorable. We're glad of your positive attitude: working off calories from all the fresh and wonderful foods offered in PV.
We'd love for you to return the next time you choose to vacation in PV

“Fantastic little Casa in the hills”
Reviewed October 29, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

What a find!
We were very happy with this lovely casa for two weeks in October 2015.
My parents stayed with us for the first week and although they are elderly, they are pretty mobile so, they had no issues with all the stairs to get into the place. However they did opt for the funicular to get to the main road and a cheap cab fare (about $3)to get into town. My husband and I liked to make the short trip to the beach or town on foot. About a 10 to 15 min downhill walk. The casa is well equipped with a full kitchen and grill on the deck that we used often. The pool is beautiful and just the right size to chill out in. We slept well in the comfy beds and even though their is no AC it cooled off enough at night to make it comfortable. Yes you can hear the traffic below on the road but honestly it didn't bother us. All in all a great place to stay. We will be back.

“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!
