WE HAD A WONDERFUL VACATION EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Casa Montana in December, and our experience was amazing. From the moment we arrived til the time we left (sadly), we had a great time. The property is located just a short cab ride from the main town, the information that was available about restaurants, places to go, things to see, was great. The villa is beautiful, we especially loved the pool and the great patio where Flor (the housekeeper) served us breakfast every day.
Flor, was one the best parts of our stay. She contributed so much to our experience. We really felt pampered. She made some dinners for us which were delicious. We had the best time possible and highly recommend Casa Montana.

OVERALL STRESSFUL, WOULD NOT RECOMMEND.

  • 2 of 5
This place gets two stars for the charming property. But overall it seems to be poorly managed and we felt frustrated on several occasions. To start with, there was a dried urine mark on one of the toilets when we arrived suggesting that it wasn't cleaned. The manager did nothing about this, and she just said simply said that it was strange bc it should have been cleaned. All we wanted to do was take a shower when we first arrived but there appeared to be no soap or shampoo. When we called the manager to ask about this she took over 30 minutes to respond to our call. She didn't know where it should be either and had to call someone to ask about this. Isn't it her job to check and make sure the property is clean and properly equipped? She later told us that the shampoo is in the "method" soap container near the tub and the body wash is in the unmarked clear container on the sink.

The manager made it clear that we can call her any time of the day but this turned out to be lip service. We called her several times and not once did she pick up when we called her, and she never returned the call in less than 30 minutes. This might be ok if you're planning to be at home all day, but if you have activities planned, this is terrible and stressful. If you want to go somewhere you have to wait for the manager to call you back to order a taxi and then the taxi might take 45 minutes to get there. When we called the number she recommended for a taxi directly, the company told us that they were too far from our property. How could she not know this?? Ac broke down while we were there. Again it took the manager over 45 minutes to respond, and we couldn't wait for maintenance so we left but it was still not fixed at the end of the day when we returned. We tried calling the manager at the office and at her cell over 20 times that night, but we didn't get a response from her until about 9am the following morning and none of us got any sleep due to the heat. Shouldn't she have at least checked up to make sure that the ac was fixed, and if it wasn't fixable should we not have been offered alternate accommodation? When we talked to her about this she apologized but made no effort to fix the situation in any way. Finally, Flor is great but does not speak English and we never got exactly what we wanted for breakfast.

I should note that the property manager was not Cheke or the owner as mentioned in previous positive reviews. Worst vacation ever.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest,
Your negative experience with us is unusual and I am terribly sorry that your
stay was less than relaxing. My understanding, now that I have taken some time to speak with everyone on our staff, is that we had a real lack of communication. Toni, our concierge, checked you in, which is her only job. She speaks English well but she is not the manager of our villa. It is her job to pass any problems directly to our manager, Cheke. The body wash for showers is not marked as such but is sitting on the small shelf right below our shower faucet handles. I thought it was obvious that that was our soap. The same situation occurs at the sink. We have a soap dispenser on the counter next to the faucets. Again, I thought fairly obvious. I have no idea what occurred with the taxi. There is a major taxi stand located at the bottom of our hill. Our apologies if something happened which prevented them from reaching you. It takes less than two minutes to drive up our road. Perhaps there was a misunderstanding.
Our error was made during the evening the A/C went out. Our manger came to the house at 7:30 pm to determine the problem with the AC. He did not leave a written message that he had been there. Toni, called the house that night to let you know a repair person had been there,unfortunately, you were not at home. The manager came back with the technician the next morning at 9:00 to repair the fuses. Our mistake was not leaving you a note to let you know there was a plan to repair the A/C. I'm sorry that was so upsetting. We have learned from that mistake, I assure you. It is true, Flor doesn't speak English very well. She understands quite a bit more than she speaks. No one has complained about her language skills before. However, I understand it might be difficult for some people to adjust to. We do have dictionaries and other grammar books to help when needed. Once again, i'm very sorry that you were
so unhappy. Best regards, Sandy Gelt, owner of Casa Montaña

LOVELY STAY

  • 5 of 5
We arrived on Sunday the 4th and enjoyed every single second of it. Not only was the site right on with the pictures and descriptions, but there were a ton of other pleasant surprises such as the quiet neighborhood, well equipped home, along with many others. I would recommend this property to anyone who is interested in having a romantic get away or even a happy family trip. We had a wonderful stay and not to mention, my now fiancee proposed ... it will be a villa to remember and most certainly our favorite vacation spot. BEST DECISION YOULL MAKE!

WE MISS CASA MONTAÑA

  • 5 of 5
What a fantastic way to experience PV! Casa Montaña was amazing! The house was very clean and well kept. We were greeted by the manager of the property management company, Cheke, who was unbelievably friendly and cool.

The house is close to everything, no need for a rental car, just call a cab or walk. There is wonderful woman named Flor who looks after the house and she is just a fantastic. There is nothing like waking up to fresh coffee and sitting by the pool looking out at the Pacific. Speaking of the pool, we spent about 95% of our time there. Go to Costco when you get in, load up on food, use the grill and make sure to have plenty of Tequila and limes (and coke, to splash on top).

Anyway, writing this review is making me miss it even more. We're going back again this year.

Thanks Simon and Sandy for having us!

- J & C

FANTASTIC HOST, FANTASTIC PLACE

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful house with great views and a fantastic owner (Sandy) who has been so great to us in so many emails helping us patiently. The house has two master bedrooms with great balconies, views and great baths upstairs and a nice large living room and kitchen downstairs with a small yard and heated pool about 5ft deep.

The neighborhood is in the hills and away from the city noise but not far at all. Only 5 minutes. The house has a beautiful decor. The vast 120 degree view of the ocean and the city is sadly defaced slightly by a cell phone tower in front but after a while, one gets used to ignoring the tower and enjoying the view. Both Sandy and her agent go out of their way to make you happy.

(This place was heaven-sent after we left another listing nearby (property #929455) where the owner had not disclosed the massive construction noise and decided to withhold our deposit.)

The house itself gets 5 stars, macro-location gets 5 stars, micro-location 3 stars and the host 6 stars!

Casa Montaña is located in the quietly exclusive, upscale village of Conchas Chinas, just south of romantic and historic Viejo (Old) Vallarta. Conchas Chinas means 'Chinese shells,' which you can hunt on the small, white-sand beach, rock grottos and hidden coves waiting to be explored and enjoyed.

Your private vacation/honeymoon villa is perched high above the Bay of Banderas in a lush, tropical setting with stunning ocean views and cool breezes while still close to attractions, galleries, gourmet restaurants and shopping.

It's only a short stroll to the white-sand beach and you can walk or take a short taxi ride into Viejo Vallarta. You're close enough to enjoy the town, but far enough away to enjoy your privacy.

Other Activities: whale watching, swim with dolphins, turtle sanctuary, zip line, four wheeling

Notes:
Our guest's favorite food and drinks can be pre-stocked in the house prior to our your arrival. Send us a shopping list and we will take care of bringing it to the villa. There is a small fee for this but it is definately worth it, according to our guests. Please note that there is safe, purified water throughout the house. Water is totally drinkable from every faucet. Fresh ice from the market is my recommendation. We don't use ice makers. The pool is heated, if you wish to have the temperature higher or lower just ask Florie and she will see to it. We have coolers and bags to carry your towels, and a picnic to the beach - no need to bring anything from home. Towels and a beach umbrella are available as well, makes your beach visit easy.
