Puerto Vallarta House Rental Photos and Description



Casa Hortencias is my most popular rental property in Puerto Vallarta. It has been successfully renting in Puerto Vallarta for over 15 years now. Casa Hortencias has 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths, 1 half bath. Truly a wonderful Puerto Vallarta Vacation rental property.

Sit on the lower terrace or float in the rooftop pool and enjoy the wonderful views of the town and bay. The special feature is the rooftop recreation patio with swimming pool, huge palapa for time in the shade, lots of sun, BBQ grille and several dining tables.

Location Location Location! Casa Hortencias is right on the hill above Old Town/Romantic Zone and Los Muertos Beach. Walk to everything. It's about a 7 minute walk down to Old Town or the Beach. If you don't feel like walking back up, take a cab for about $5.00 USD. If you are looking for a wonderful home away from home in Puerto Vallarta you have come to the right place. I have some of the nicest rentals in Puerto Vallarta.

If you want to experience the real Puerto Vallarta, this is the place. I have several other properties next to the home, so it you need to accommodate more guests I can help. Many of my larger groups rent Casa Hortencias along with several of the condos and use the house for pool time, cocktails, dinners, etc.

The home is beautifully detailed throughout with the flavor of old and new Mexico. We offer on-site management and maid service every day except Sunday in high season and 3 days a week in value season. A truly comfortable home to hang out with your friends or family. Our goal is to provide great service and a very nice home so that you will return from Puerto Vallarta with many fond memories. A wonderful Puerto Vallarta Villa perfect for your friends and family looking for a great Mexican vacation.

Casa Hortencias stands alone as one of the few small private homes on the hill. I have many beautiful condos but there is nothing like the experience of living in a private home with pool for your stay in paradise.

Hundreds of guests over the past 15 years have come to Casa Hortencias and many return year after year. So treat your family and friends to a great vacation at Casa Hortencias.

About Jeffery Hill

My name is Jeffery Hill and I have been renting my homes in Puerto Vallarta and Florida for over 15 years. As my business has grown, so has my ability, to provide great properties and great service.

On my website at and you will see over 30 properties. I own 16 of these homes and rent the remainder for others. Am I a rental agent? Well, yes and no. Almost all of the homes on my site have a personal connection. I do interior design and many of the properties are owned by clients who hired me to create the vacation rental for them and then manage their rental business. Other properties are owned by friends and neighbors, who have seen what I do, and have asked me to bring their property up to my standards and do the rentals for them. So unlike many rental agents, my agenda is not just to make money. My goal is to create a unique collection of very special properties, in many price ranges, with many different flavors, and provide great service to my guests.

In Puerto Vallarta, I am fortunate to have an amazing staff who work very hard to maintain my properties and take care of my guests. We offer optional services such as airport pickup, groceries delivered upon arrival, chef services and assistance with restaurant ideas, tours, etc. We are not always perfect, but our goal is to do the best to provide you with your best vacation ever. If you are traveling to celebrate a special occasion, let us know and we will help make it more special. If you are traveling with a larger group, let us know and we will make suggestions for properties located close to each other that will accommodate your group. In other words, tell us what you want and we will see what we can do.

I offer private homes and condos most of which are located in the Old Town/Romantic Zone area of Puerto Vallarta, Sayulita, and Fort Lauderdale / Wilton Manors, Florida

Jeffery Hill purchased this house in 1999

Why Jeffery Hill chose Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta is an amazing town. Make sure you stay in the 'real' Puerto Vallarta in Old Town/Romantic Zone. Here you will experience the real charm of Mexico. Old Town is where those who love Puerto Vallarta return each year. Old Town is a great mix of open minding fun interesting people. It's where straight and gay, young and old, black, white and brown, all mix to create a fun and festive environment. This area has a huge variety of restaurants. There is something for everyone. If you love people watching and meeting all kinds of people, this is the place.

What makes this house unique

The private roof top terrace at Casa Hortencias is the perfect spot for your afternoon pool time and even better for your evening happy hour.

By being on the hill you get the great ocean breezes and avoid all the loud noise of downtown throughout the night. The home has amazing views, wonderful furnishings and everything you need to experience Puerto Vallarta as though it was your own home. It's just a great home. Casa Hortencias has been renting for 14 years now and it only gets better each year.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Jeffery, the only thing missing is you. We just had an afternoon shower and a cool, soft breeze is coming up the hillside caressing the hummingbirds as they flit between feeders. As you know, I have always loved your home, and spending some time here makes celebrating our 49th wedding anniversary very special. There is " magic" in this home and we appreciate you sharing it with us.

Relaxing Hillside Home

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home. The views are as promised and the home has a wonderfully styled interior. The home is very comfortable with a large seating area downstairs both inside and out and lovely lounges and chairs on the rooftop pool area. The house was perfect for 3 couples with plenty of spaces so that everybody was able to find a place to relax. The pool has sun for about 3 hours but the surrounding patios are beautifully shaded with lush vegetation perfect for reading that book.

We highly recommend getting the pick-up from the airport...just takes all the challenge out of your stay.

The beds are all very comfortable and the linens are quite nice with plenty of thick towels.

We usually run down to P.V. every couple of months for a few days and this was the first time that we have rented a house. We usually get a Hotel on the beach. That being said we liked the house location up on the was just a little challenging walking down to dinner in town. The "tire" trail is treacherous in the light of day and only with proper shoes, I do not recommend this path by night. The streets are very negotiable just plan the time.

For me on the the biggest perks of staying here is the close proximity to my favorite restaurant in P.V. Vista Grill. I would have eaten there every night.

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Four of us shared the home and absolutely loved the fact that there were so many different spaces to relax in. The housekeeper did a spotless job (and as someone also pointed out, if you don't want her to do your laundry, don't leave it out and visible!) . The kitchen is well equipped and easy to cook in.The walk down the tire path was very daunting the first day, but by day 2 it was a snap. We love PV, and prefer to spend time in Old Town, so this was perfect. The only downside is how close condos are all around it. We were fortunate that most were empty, so there was little noise except for one night when neighbors had a loud party..No big deal. Loved the roof top pool- fabulous. Would definitely come back.

Lovely home, very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

I find myself reminiscing on this trip of a lifetime. We arrived late at night around 10 or so and to our surprise the staff was waiting for us. It was breath taking to wake up in the morning and take in the view from the balcony. We enjoyed 7 days of breakfast on the balcony and 5 nights of dinner on the rooftop. I loved that there was only 1 television in the house and Jeff provides plenty of cds for your musical pleasure. The walks up and down the hill were not an inconvenience but merely added to the essence of casa hortencias. Its truely heavenly :D I hope to go back soon

Peace, harmony with nature, spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

I spend 10 days recently at Casa Hortencias with my "mexican" family. We felt at home, in a home with all the amenities needed. But above "things" there was a sense of peace, nature all around, yet down the hill and you are in town. Having your own pool is so great, especially in the hot weather. The staff are wonderful-attentive, helpful but not intrusive. The rooftop palapas, pool are beyond compare...we spent many wonderful evenings there. The house has top of the line appliances, granite, washer/dryer....everything one needs to be comfortable. I was never so relaxed in my life! If you want privacy, peace, a wonderful pool, spectacular views, a well maintained home with all the amenitites, all near town & shopping, you should consider this villa. You won't be disappointed! We will be going back very soon....

July 29 I arrived at Casa Hortencia....and my "mexican family" arrived early the next day. From the moment we entered this house, we felt "at home." Beautifully decorated. Mexican style but not "over the top." Modern kitchen with everything one needs to cook! Stainless steal appliances, granite, and high end pots/pans. Washer and dryer in the house and much needed! I can't tell you how beautiful the view is. I miss it already! Overlooking the bay-spectacular at night and in the daytime. Feels like you are in the jungle with natural sounds all night long. Parrots, etc visiting you on the veranda-not to mention iguanas (harmless). The staff is excellent, and not "in the way." The owner ensures that everything is done right and the staff are respectful and eager to please. This is a home, not a house. Loving touches everywhere. This was the first time I rented a house (vs hotel) and it was a great choice. I plan to return again, in the very near future. I brought my small dog Lola and she thoroughly felt at home. There is plently fo space, all the comforts of home - more towels than you can ever use! I could go on and on, but it was a RELAXING and memorable vacation for everyone. I would highly recommend a stay here.

Casa Hortencias is a Dream!

  • 5 of 5

My two friends and I rented Casa Hortencias for my 60th birthday, hoping for a once-in-a-lifetime celebration in a vacation-spot-of-our-dreams. We were not disappointed. Jeffrey was a delightful host and very helpful with restaurant recommendations for my special event, etc. The house is perched on the hillside with beautiful views and is not only comfortable, but deliciously decorated. There are places to get away from one another, and places to get together and have fun.

The house is located up a pretty steep hill, but no fear, if you don't want to take the walk. The taxi drivers of PV were great at zipping up and down, at very reasonable cost and all hours of the day and night. We found them courteous and convenient. It made Casa Hortencias a bit of a retreat from the hectic daily PV traffic, and still kept PV within easy access, no matter the time of day.

I'd love to visit again. And I'm certain Jeffrey would be my first choice as a host. Thanks for making my birthday a special one.
