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.

Exquisite Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
The six days we spent at Casa Pena del Mar were absolutely amazing! From the moment we arrived, we fell in love with the property. Everything from the spacious bedrooms, private pool, amazing views of the Bay and Los Arcos, to the beach club and private beach for the gated community was perfect. We have stayed at other properties in PV but nothing compares to Casa Pena del Mar. The ownership is wonderful and so easy to work with. They made the entire booking process effortless. Elena and the rest of the staff onsite are incredible and take care of your every need. We cannot wait to return to this amazing property again! Thank you for making this one of our best vacations yet!!!

Absolutely the best vacation yet we couldn't have picked a better place for our family vacation. I can't even put into words how amazing of a place Casa Pena Del Mar is the house is just beautiful the pictures don't do it justice. The staff was awesome Elena by far exceeded our expectants she was great we all really enjoyed her and were sad to leave we wanted to take her home with us. Sarah the cook was amazing every meal was outta this world. We mostly relaxed at the house or snorkeled off the rocks to the arches right from the house and a few times we went and played at the beach club and kayaked it also had a very nice gym. Roger the owner was amazing in handling every detail and answering every question we had. We definitely highly recommend this house and can't wait to come back. The Fowler Family

Best vacation ever!

I can't begin to describe what a fabulous time our families had in Puerto Vallarta and our stay on Casa Pena del Mar. This beautiful home is perfectly located on the ocean and within a short walk to the beach club and your very own sandy beach with lots of toys. Roger (owner) Maria, Elena and the entire staff were incredibly accommodating to our needs and privacy. I would highly recommend this wonderful home and staff for your next family vacation. 5 star !!!!! - we will be back!

Amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5
The pictures and reviews convinced us to rent this home, but the trip far exceeded our high expectations. The home was absolutely beautiful and perfect for 7 friends to relax and have fun. Roger's guidance in planning our trip and how to get the most of our Puerto Vallarta vacation was so helpful. The staff attended to our every need and blended right into our group. Although they really didn't really have a choice, as we tended to hover in the kitchen watching the chef prepare the most amazing meals (we even convinced her to share a few of her secrets!). We had a group discussion on whether to even eat out one of the nights since we couldn't imagine getting better food than what was prepared at the house. But of course we took Roger's advice for one of his favorite restaurants and it was an experience not to forget. Thank you Roger for your attention to every detail to make this a truely memorable vacation for us.

Beyond Expectations In Every way....

  • 5 of 5
We had the good fortune to meet personally with Roger and his wife, Joanna, prior to renting their beautiful Puerto Vallarta home. We knew from the first time we met that our time at Casa Pena would be a very special experience. Our week with our family of fourteen exceeded our expectations in every way. It was not only a week in the most beautiful of settings, but our every need and want was provided for by the most "beautiful" and caring people--Maria, Elena, Sara, Amanda, Martha and Dario. This house "team" reflected to all of us the warmth and concern that Roger and Joanna desires for all of their house guests. Each day, under Maria and her daughter Elena's very capable direction, Sara, the cook, served the most delicious recipes and in the most beautiful of presentations; Amanda and Martha returned the Casa daily to its original splendor and each morning Dario readied the pool and pool area for another day of swimming, sunning and just relaxing. Our family, ranging in age from five to seventy-five, agreed their week at Casa Pena was the absolute best. Each of us in our own way utilized the full range of experiences provided: the Club down from the house with its gym, sauna, restaurant, and yet another pool; the ocean at your feet to swim/snorkel/kayak/rock climb; the many places within the house to just relax, read, meditate, or find your "quiet space"; and the many gathering places--in the hot tub and pool, patio, the palapa or at the pool table or on the living room sofa with your morning coffee. Something and someplace for everyone. At the end of our week we had but one regret. When it was time to leave we all wished for more time and more of Casa Pena and its wonderful staff. Thank you Roger and Joanna for sharing, We will be back!

We could not have been happier with our choice to stay in this house! The pictures truly do not do this home justice! I am not sure where to start - there was so much to love about this property! The location is great - just a short bus ride to town. The pool, the beach, the amenities in the home - perfecto! Maria and her daughter Elana were so fantastic! They were just some war, friendly hosts. The food prepared for breakfast and dinner never ceased to amaze. We had a large group and there was not one guest that did not claim this to be one of their very best vacations. Roger, you are so gracious to share your beautiful home with us! There is no doubt that this will be our choice next time we visit Puerto Vallarta! Many thanks!!!
