Love the location and the warm and friendly people of Mexico. Bandaras Bay is the home to some of the best year round sailing weather anywhere on the Pacific Ocean. The great weather year round is a big plus!
Enjoy a morning walk within the Marina Malecon. View yachts from around the world. Excellent gyms located at both entrances to the Marina. Or, enjoy your morning on the patio viewing the boats gently moving to the morning tide. Then take the kayak for a paddle around the marina and view the yachts from the waterline up. Paddle boarding is also available on the Bay. Zip line tours and charter trips available right next door in the Marina. I am happy to assist our guests with any special requests and occasions. We have added wireless internet now available thru out the casa.
We are seasoned VRBO renters and have stayed at several B&Bs in our travels. As others have mentioned, Debbie and Dan (and let's not forget Danny) have created a very special place in Marina Vallarta. Debbie picked us up from the airport and welcomed us with open arms. The bed and bath were perfectly sized with a very comfortable king bed and cozy seating area. There is a small fridge which is perfect for snacks and beverages. It is well maintained and very clean. The views to the marina are beautiful and a very peaceful escape from the busier sections of Puerto Vallarta. We did take advantage of the pool for days that we didn't want to go very far, which was very nice and quiet. We also enjoyed taking the kayak out to explore more of the marina. Debbie's breakfasts are great and she has a lot of variety. There are so many restaurants within a very short walking distance or you can take a bus/cab to downtown or other towns. We've been to PV twice before and stayed at the all inclusives. Debbie and Dan showed us a different side to PV and the culture - Debbie is a wealth of knowledge about the people and the area. We walked away with new friends and plan to return soon...and for much longer. Thanks Debbie and Dan!
From the moment we met Debbie when she picked us up at the airport we felt like we had known her forever. We were welcomed into her beautiful home with open arms. We had worries about staying at a bed & breakfast, but that was all erased in a matter of minutes. Debbie had a delicious breakfast ready and waiting for us every morning Casa Iguana and Debbie had us feeling like we were home. There is so much to see and enjoy, all within walking distance or a short cab ride. Debbie went out of her way to show us great time and introduce us to some local restuaraunts and people that we would never would have experienced on our own.
Loved our time at the B&B! As the title suggests it was more like staying with family or a long time friend. Right from the first inquiry the experience was excellent. So nice being picked up at the airport and avoiding all the hassle of trying to get transportation all the while ducking the time share hawkers. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, the breakfasts delicious. Pool was close by. We became part of their home sharing laughs and stories. The location is perfect, close to the restaurants and shops of the marina but quiet and safe because you are in a gated residential community. It is also a short walk to the bus stop for downtown and the mall....all for 71/2 pesos complete with a window into local life.
Never has the old adage "strangers are friends you haven't met yet" ring truer. Highly recommend.
After returning from a two weeks visit to Puerto Vallarta, my husband and I can't stopping talking and reminiscing about what a wonderful time we had. A lot of those fond memories are of Debbie, our lovely hostess, and Casa Iguana. Debbie made of us feel so welcome and comfortable in her charming home, it was like visiting a new friend. We were especially delighted with our tasty and sumptuous breakfasts. Our room upstairs had everything we needed, fridge, wi-fi, TV with English channels and a really comfy king bed. Casa Iguana is just a two minute walk from Marina Vallarta with all its shops, restaurants and activities. Buses and inexpensive taxis are close by and it is only about 15 minutes by bus to the historic old town Vallara. We chose to rent a car for a week to visit the small towns surrounding PV. Debbie , having lived in the area for many years, was so helpful providing information and suggestions about restaurants, festivals going on and her favorite activities.
Thank you Unfortunately, Dan was out of town and we didn't get to meet him, maybe on our next visit which is already being planned. Thank you Debbie for looking after us so well, looking forward to our next visit to Casa Iguana.
This year we will be in PV for 6 weeks and so we started our first two weeks here. We had stayed with Debbie, Dan and Danny last year and this year we doubled our time with them. Our stay this year was just as nice as last year and twice as long....and we were happier than ever.
If you're looking to decompress after the pressures back home, this is the place for you and these wonderful hosts make you feel like you're part of the family.
Oh yes, Debbie is a wonderful cook and we eagerly came down for breakfast each day. And each day it was something new, something different, beautifully presented and my wife and I joined the "Clean Plate Club" with gusto.
Our suite....it was more than a just a room was extremely comfortable and the bed was the best we've ever slept on in all our years in PV.
Each night we sjmply walked out to the Marina Malecon and had some wonderful meals. We took the local busses into downtown Puerto Vallarta and enjoyed the nightlife...up til about 9 PM so that we could get back into that great bed.
Bottom line, this is a wonderful B&B experrience with two warm and wonderful hosts and the cutest little dog in town. We'll be back next year!
We stayed for a couple of nights prior to moving to our resort for a week. What a wonderful stay we had at Villa Iguana. The weather wasn't great (very unusual weather for December - lots of rain!) but we still enjoyed our time at Debbie and Dan's. We had 2 bedrooms - 1 for my husband and I - and 1 for our daughter. We each had our own bathroom/shower which was awesome. The rooms were very comfortable - including beds! Debbie and Dan are amazing hosts and such interesting people. We walked around the marina and loved going out on the kayak throughout the marina. We are looking forward to a final night at Villa Iguana at the end of our stay in Puerto Vallarta. Here's hoping for some sun!
