A great balance of comfort and being outdoors all at the same time and the two-minute walk to a beautiful beach the ocean and sunsets is just a gem
The kids had a ball in the pool too and learned to swim much better then they would have in rainy Portland
This was our second time visiting. We definitely will be going a third time. The place is clean, comfortable and private. Literally walk across the street and enjoy the beach with the locals. You will not be hasseled by any vendors.
I would suggest getting a rental car so that you can go back and forth into town as we did.
Down the road there is a restaurant called El Set. Have dinner and a few cocktails right at sunset. You'll never want to come home.
You won't be disappointed with this home! It is all you could ask for and more. Debra, the owner, has hit upon a magical combination of staff that makes this operation run like a well oiled machine. The house and views are amazing! There was a gentleman who met us at the house to welcome us and to give us a tour. The maid is worth her weight in gold! There are always taxis available right across the street or there are busses that run both north and south. They are both just feet from the property. Debra has obviously spent a great deal of time and money stocking her home with everything you could think of and more. She has beach towels, toys, flotation devices and even a beach umbrella. Debra was very easy to work with and was always very prompt with her responses to my inqueries. We will be booking again!
You know how when you find something so great that you want to keep it all to yourself? This place is like that. We stayed for a few days & it is exactly as photographed and described. We had zero problems during our stay. Zafiro is directly across the street from the Garza Blanca Resort Hotel--with their great restaurants & really well stocked gift shop (with things like beer, Haagen Dazs, sunblock, all kinds of stuff).
The house is comfortable--it's decorated like a HOUSE, not just a "rental." It's casual & lovely & we loved being there. Totally safe & secure. Easy to get taxis & catch buses right out front (by the hotel), too. The whole vibe of the place is relaxing & wonderful. If you want a charming, pretty little house to chill out in, read books by the pool & pop over to the beach & some nice restaurants with ease, go here. It's perfect for a couple looking for a low-key vacation spot. If you're looking to "party hearty" & get loud & crazy, this is probably not the right place for you. The whole complex seemed very mellow.
We were a little hesitant to book it, mostly because it didn't have a bunch of really recent reviews--but WOW are we happy we rolled the dice & took that chance! We're already planning on going back there next month!
Please rest assured that everything stated in the ad is totally correct & the pictures capture all of it perfectly. I hope the right kind of people find this place & help to keep it somewhat 'undiscovered' & wonderful. We loved it.
My family and I had a really nice time at casa Zafiro. It has a perfect size and it makes you feel at home right away. Rene and Eve are very friendly and willing to help you out with anything. The beach a cross the street is really nice and we were able to see the new year's fireworks from there. the house is so comfortable and so well equipped that we almost never left it. It was a wonderful week for everybody and hopefully we can make it back soon.
We visited this little villa in April of 2008 and had a marvelous time. We are planning to return in 2010 and I was looking for the listing so I could call and reserve.
Everyone, from the owner to the staff was wonderful. We enjoyed ourself immensely.
This was my first time in Puerto Vallarta, I was a little nervious about booking though the net but , We loved casa Zafiro, everyone in charge of the property was very heplful and polite, I had one of the best family vacation ever. We are looking forward to go back again but this time we planning to stay 1 or 2 weeks,
