Tripadvisor Quotes from recent guests:

July 2014 - Beautiful, tranquil, perfect - A wonderful place to stay, especially if you are looking for the flavor of Mexico. (as opposed to cookie-cutter resort living.) LARGE apartments with fully equipped kitchens. In the center of Old Town and close to everything you might need. I am a solo woman traveler and felt 100% safe. The Casa del Puente is a rare find. More details/photos on my travel site: http://katerambles.blogspot.com/

2012: “Location A+; Cleanliness A+; Privacy A+; Price A+!” This was probably our seventh visit to Casa del Puente. It's like coming home - a warm welcome, you get a key to the front gate, there is a grocery store a block away, and so many good restaurants and things to do. The price is eminently fair, and the service is delightful. You have a full kitchen - blender for margaritas, coffee maker, stove with all utensils, and plenty of books left by previous happy visitors. You don't have the stuffy hotel feeling (it's right on the River Cuale, with iguanas in the trees and the river sounds to lull you to sleep). This place will be one that you will remember and wish that you had spent more time here!

April 2014 – A great escape, Mexican elegant chic From the minute we arrive, we just couldn't get over how incredibly beautiful the place was. We had read the reviews, and seen the photos, but it was really much more than we ever expected. We stayed in the spacious apartment upstairs. Everything about the apartment was airy, open and conformable. The views of the mountains & foliage are stunning. The apartment had everything you could need for a long stay. We were there for a week. It is located in the heart of Puerto Vallarta. We could walk everywhere , Beaches, clubs, some really incredible restaurants .(Joe Jack's Fish Shack).

The staff was very sweet and friendly.

We were fortunate to have gotten a look at the other two apartments. They are both as unique and special as the one we stayed in. I think the next time we go, we will invite a bunch of friends and rent all three. Our trip and stay at Casa Del Puente, was the real deal. A great relaxing Mexican vacation.

Quote from Puerto Vallarta Handbook says it all- Moon publishing:

'Antiques and art adorn the spacious, high-beamed-ceiling rooms, while outside its windows and around the decks great trees spread, tropical birds flit and chatter, jungle hills rise, and the river gurgles, hidden from the city hubbub nearby.'

About Manager Casa Del Puente

Mollie Muir is the owner of Casa Del Puente. Her first visit to Vallarta was in 1962 on vacation with her parents, Evelyn and John and her three children Jay, Susan and Maria. They fell in love with Vallarta which at the time was a sleepy little fishing village. So much so that Mollie's parents decided to build a second home in Vallarta. She is the grand niece of John Muir, Naturalist.

Manager Casa Del Puente purchased this apartment in 1968

Why Manager Casa Del Puente chose Playas Gemelas

Puerto Vallarta is just charming and beautiful. The climate is fantastic. The location of Casa Del Puente allows you to walk anywhere with minutes, the beach, restaurants, grocery stores, shopping - all within three blocks.

Casa del Puente was designed by Fernando Romero who is one of the famed architects of what is known as the Puerto Vallarta Style. These apartments are very unique in itheir design of space - open and airy enjoying the views and breezes of the Rio Cuale.

What makes this apartment unique

It's like being in 'old mexico' and you're in the center of town. Also, since we're right on the river you don't get the street noise you would get elsewhere. The views of the trees and the nice sounds of the river are quite unique.

Warm and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

Photos capture the true image of this wonderful home. Traditional old Vallarta design. In the family for generations, the history is fascinating. The owner goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome. You are in the heart of old PV. Walking to any location within 10 minutes. A fountain at the entrance blocks out any traffic noise from the street. Rooms are spacious and elegant. The patios are perfect for morning coffee and evening cocktails. Cleaning daily by wonderful staff. I'll be back.

Spectacular Puerto Vallarta

  • 5 of 5

In the heart of Puerto Vallarta is an amazing accommodation that has to be seen and experienced to be believed. Casa de Puente is just above the Cuale with all of its wildlife-beautiful birds, reptiles (harmless, beautiful lizards) that live in the trees adjacent to the patio. The main room with full kitchen is appointed with fantastic, classic Mexican fabrics, tiles and artifacts collected over the years by the principal owners. Located in the heart of the city, just barely a 10 minute walk from beaches, restaurants, and shopping. This is the real Puerto Vallarta. If you want to be in he heart of this active, bustling, creative community and support the local economy, Stay here. Do not hesitate. Book straight away. You will be glad you did.

Great Upgrades by 2nd Generation Owners

  • 5 of 5

I've been staying annually at Casa del Puente for the last 20+ years. Sometimes my husband has joined me, sometimes some "gal pals." This property is perfect for either a romantic vacation or a ladies getaway. Really liked the upgrades the 2nd generation owners have been making to freshen the property. "Killer" master bath and like the two new fountains. This property has always enjoyed one of the best locations, right on the Rio Cuale, in Puerto Vallarta and is now striving to be one of the best overall villa lodging products in the area. Can't wait to see what new amenities the owners surprise me with next trip. Already booked for a week in 2016.

Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

For the true Puerto Vallarta experience, this is the place to say. Beautiful spacious clean accommodations close to the beach, shopping, and restaurants galore. The units have full kitchens so you can eat in if you like and there is plenty of room to invite friends. Everything is close, but you are not right on the street, so no foot traffic to worry about. If you don't want to walk, there is a cab stand across the street. Very convenient, but also private and safe. Staff are wonderful and the owners are extremely helpful with a long history in PV. I would definitely stay there again.

Wonderful stay in the heart of old town Vallarta

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Penthouse that was spacious for the 4 of us (could even have accommodated 5 easily) and attractively furnished with new and old artwork. We were right in the middle of old town with shopping galore, the beach within minutes walk, and some of the best food I have ever tasted. Marie, our host had written reviews of the local restaurants, and without fail, all were great. We will stay there again!

ambience, tranquility, and vitality describe Casa del Puente.from the time one enters through the iron gate, reminiscent of old Mexico and encounters the expansive terraces that have a wonderful view of the Rio Cuale, one could feel they have arrived in Mexico. From the light filled apartment of apartment 2, to the tranquility of apartment 1, and the spaciousness of the penthouse, they all exude a sense of place. Step out the gate to the vibrancy of Puerto Vallarte at its finest.

the whole casa is very clean and well run. The owners are very helpful, resourceful and knowledgeable about Vallarte. I have been returning to Casa del Puente for years and always have a sense of well being when I arrive.

Needless to say this casa is a gem and I recommend for short or long term stays
