Our experience started with Sandy, the owner, prior to booking. She took the time to set up a phone call to answer anything else we needed help figuring out. We came with 3 young children and had a lot of questions regarding the location, pool, beds, etc. She was patient, kind and thorough. We remembered the hills from a prior stay in PV and managing hills with small kids seemed a bit daunting but, those anxieties were short-lived. It is about a 15 minute walk to the beach from the villa. We did it with all 3 kids and enjoyed it. It isn't for everyone. If we didn't feel like doing the walk, we called the taxi (which took 3-5 minutes to get to the villa daily) and for 60 pesos or approx $5, we were at the beach in 5 minutes. It was exhilarating to be in the city/beach and then we felt so fortunate to be able to escape to our Casa Montana (I usually took the 2 youngest back up with me in a taxi) The views are great. You can see the bay from every window it seemed. The sunsets from the bedroom balconies are breathtaking. It is in a beautiful, safe neighborhood and at night, the only noise is the occasional car meandering its way up the hill. The accommodations are wonderful. The beds are comfortable and they made sure the pillows were good. (I am a pillow snob). The beds are king-sized so there was plenty of room for all of us in the 2 bedrooms. Each had its own bathroom and the main level also had a bathroom. The decor is beautiful and has the Mexican charm we like. Flor, the housekeeper and cook, is a delight. She will come to prepare a continental breakfast including coffee and fruit/toast and then cleans the whole villa for you. She can also, if you request it, make other meals for you including adding eggs to your breakfast or lunch/dinner for extra charge. We sent a grocery list prior and for $30, she will go and pick everything up from your list. We told her ahead of our visit that we love homemade beans and guacamole/salsa. We came to the villa and our fridge was stocked and everyday, we had Mex Salsa and beans and a fresh guac. I would recommend getting a menu prior to arrival if meals are something you would like and let her know so she can buy ingredients for those first days then. We had Diablo Shrimp for lunch one day(awesome). She speaks limited English. We hope to return again and would recommend this place to anyone...couples, familes, long term stay, etc.
