Guestbook comments from the owner

Roger, First of all, could you send us the mailing address for the crew at “Casa Pena Del Mar”? We want to send them a note. Thanks.

How can I say it adequately? Our joy and satisfaction with our second visit exceeded that of our first, if that is possible. During the past two years, Elena has graduated with honors from the School of Maria. She is a wonderful and knowledgeable force with a tremendous sense of responsibility.

I particularly give her credit for preparing the hand-over. From a distance, we saw her mapping out her plans days early. The day before, as we left the house to go about our business in town, her team swooped in and did much of the preparatory work. She gently asked if, Friday morning, they could make the beds early in the day, but of course, only if that was convenient for us. We took the opportunity to have lunch at the club. (Love the club!) When our final group departed at 2 pm, it literally was time for the next group to arrive. The house was immaculate and the fringe on every carpet was combed and ready.

And then, there was Sondra! Carmen was good, but Sondra was great. What a treasure. On our third visit to PV, between Sondra’s cooking and the club, there was little reason to dine in town, except for our two dinners at El Arrayán.

The house, of course, looks great. We particularly noticed the orchids, which were a nice addition. I must say, the floor plan for your neighbor’s new house baffles us a bit, but à chacun son goût.

We declared this the year of the whale. At the request of one of our sons, my wife and I took the opportunity to read Moby Dick, shamelessly overdue for both of us. Literally at the moment I first read “Thar she blows!”, one of your own whales appeared breaching just offshore. We had another visit later in the week, this time from a family group. (If you paid the whales to do this for us, it was money well spent!) Thank you, too for the boat. We headed to the south shore this time, so no whales there. The dinghy was a major convenience.

Thanks from our family to both of you, once again, for sharing with us your beautiful home and your exceptionally warm staff. Please put us at the top of your reference list.

Best wishes for a happy new year.

Beautiful home and a wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this house. My only concern with writing such praises is that when we try to come back next year, all the dates will be taken. Traveling with my husband and son were two other couples and two other kids (oldest almost 4). They had everything you could ask for making traveling with little ones so effortless once we arrived. The home is gorgeous, the food was delicious (thank you Karen!) and the trip was a blast. Elena was amazing. She was so helpful, sweet and just an all around pleasure to be around as she set us up with everything we could ask for throughout the week. I can't say enough good things about them all (Dario and Amanda- thanks for cleaning up after us)! We are looking forward to returning soon.

Our group consisted of 3 couples and 3 children ranging in age from 9months to 3.5 years. We can't say enough good things about the Villa and all of the Staff. Elena was tremendously helpful from assisting with preparing for your arrival and making sure the home is stocked with anything you request to taking care of all of your needs during your visit. She arranged a fishing trip for part of our group, called taxis when we needed them or just provided suggestions and directions when we asked. Karen is an amazing cook and we only left the Villa for one dinner because we couldn't get enough, don't skip dessert. Dario and Amanda did a wonderful job taking care of the grounds and home and we didn't even know they were there most of the time. The location of the Villa is South of downtown by about 15 minutes. We didn't mind this because there is plenty to do on that side of PV. We took a boat to a beach only reachable by boat, we spent a day at the zoo and drove to the Botanic Gardens as well. All very close to the villa heading south. The home was great for children with high chairs, pack and plays, event dinner ware, toys and books. The beach club was and easy walk and provided a great alternative to the pool at the house. We are already planning our trip back next year.

Gracious Living

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this luxury home with four other couples for a week and it was hard to leave! Not only is the house itself lovely and comfortable, but it is located perfectly only a short taxi or bus ride from the bustling old town of Puerto Vallarta, so it is easy to go into town, but equally easy to return "home", blissfully, at the end of a long shopping day. Amazing views of the entire bay from the ocean-front pool. The beach is isolated, lovely and calm enough for kayaks or just floating. I think the highlight was the great household staff, who accommodated all our wishes in a gracious yet friendly manner. Every morning Elena would take our menu wishes and Sara would miraculously produce them for us at the poolside table. The house and grounds were immaculate. We hope to return with all the young adults in our lives and have a multi-generational vacation next time.

Many PV trips and this is one of the best.

  • 5 of 5

My family and a handful of friends stayed here on Thanksgiving week. This is my ninth trip in 4 years to PV and I always stay along this south side. (Old Mexican Charm that I love...and away from town just enough) The house is great for a large party and plenty of space, as others have mentioned. The house staff were perfect and Elenna was there to handle anything we needed. I an VERY picky and one of the things that made me choose this location, that was different from the other high end oceanfront homes I have rented here, is the beach club. Its private, has a jetty to keep is water calm and is free from trinket sales people and loads of other people. In fact we were usually the only ones there. Free kayaks and a beach cafe (fish tacos were insanely good) all to ourselves for the most part. My 2 year loved playing in the water and beach. I am already booking this same home for a couple weeks in the summer. Thank so much!!

Stunning views! Gorgeous house! Incredible staff!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week here with a group of 10 adults (5 couples). The house is absolutely gorgeous. The house is very spacious and airy, with the walls opening completely to the outside and to the incredible views of the bay. Every room was perfectly decorated, spotlessly clean, and completely comfortable. One of my favorite things was the spacious shower with windows that open completely, giving the feeling of showering outside, yet with complete privacy.

Although the setting is very tranquil and quiet (away from the bustle of downtown), it was very easy to hop on a bus or grab a taxi for the 10 minute ride to town.

We took advantage of the kayaks to spend a fun morning paddling around the bay and we also enjoyed the spacious and well-appointed excercise room.

The staff could not have been better. The house manager was very efficient and really friendly, the housekeeper and gardener did a fantastic job of keeping everything spotless. The cook, Sara, prepared some of the most delicious meals I've ever had. We chose mostly Mexican food, and it was very traditional, expertly prepared, and delicious.

I would easily rank this as one of my favorite vacation locations ever. I hope to return next year.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

we stayed at this amazing property 2 families with 3 toddlers and had a great time.

The property is incredible! not less. The rooms are large, the view is amazing, and the feeling and views are even much better then the way it looks in the website. We were worry about the security, but the house is located in a very secure and gated community. Moreover, we enjoyed the very quit and sandy beach, just 5 minutes walk from the villa, also located inside the gated community. The service and personal attention of Karol the owner was incredible as well and the communication with her before, during and after the stay, which was very helpful and easy. And most important, we really didn't want, and were not needed, to leave the villa during almost all of our stay. It was just so fun in there, and the kids had to much fun at the pool that it was really unnecessary.

We highly recommend this Villa and will come back for sure.
