About Lionel Cunningham

Hi!

I'm Lionel on the left of this photo, my partner of 24 years is Garin. In this photo we are returning with 'The Catch Of The Day' an 11 foot sail fish. Another exciting day of fishing in the Bay of Bandaras.

We also live in Southern Oregon where our Summer residence is located, as well as our Lake Home at Fish Lake, in the Rogue River National Forest. Also our business Cripple Creek Music Co. in Ashland, Oregon is where we retail musical instruments.

We share our homes with 2 very lovable Havanese Dogs, Sparky and Quesa Diva,(K.C.) .

Lionel Cunningham purchased this villa in 1995

Why Lionel Cunningham chose Playas Gemelas

We fell in Love with Puerto Vallarta in 1990. We love the people, the cultured, but mostly the Warm Sunny Winters of Mexico.

We purchased Casa Owaissa (our guest house) in 1995 and Casa de la Hoja (our second residence) in 2001. We remodeled both houses in 2005. We rent one or both houses when we are not using them, call for details.

What makes this villa unique

We enjoy the people and the diverse culture of Mexico. The beautiful white sand beaches, and all that the Bay of Banderas has to offer. Most of all, we love Puerto Vallartas wonderful weather.

Can't wait to do it again!

I've been coming to PV at least once a year for the last 12 years or so, but I've always stayed in hotels. Never again!!! I loved my stay at Casa Owaissa. The listing description is accurate and the photos, with the exception of some changes to the bedding in the en suite bedroom, show the home exactly as I experienced it. Norma and Memo, as mentioned by others, maintain the property beautifully and discreetly. They were like old friends by the time I left. Garin happened to be in town for a few days, and it was indeed a pleasure meeting him. I especially loved, loved, loved the Casa's pool and not having to get myself up, dressed and down to the pool by 8:00am the way you must at the hotels if you want a chair. And OMG - the views from the casa! One caution - there are many steps to the Casa and they could be challenging to some people. I'm in agreement with the other reviews on how easy it is to walk to town or grab a cab very close to the villa and go almost anywhere near for just $5 dollars American. I mostly walked to town and cabbed it back. I brought my iPad with me (had a better internet connection than my own network at home) and used TripAdvisor to see what was happening and where to go. There are too many great restaurants to name all, but I really liked The Blue Shrimp, Los Muertos Brewing and Sea Monkey. Since I was staying 2 weeks, I brought my own DVDs and CDs and actually used them. I also enjoyed and took advantage of having a fully equipped kitchen. I'd better stop writing because I'm getting homesick for Casa Owaissa! Thank you Norma, Memo, Garin and Lionel for a lovely vacation in wonderful Puerto Vallarta.

Great location

  • 5 of 5
This villa is ideally located in the hills of beautiful Conchas Chinas residential neighbourhood but very close to old town (zona romantica) where most of the restaurants, shops and clubs are. If you want your own private villa, private patio with pool, not a condo, there is nothing closer.
It has an authentic mexican feel, slightly rustic but with all the amenities you need. Better than the pictures show. The beds are comfortable. The front of the house opens up completely to the pool patio which has flowers everywhere and a spectacular view. Everything is clean and the house staff is efficient and discreet.
The owners are living in another villa directly above and are very helpful with their recommendations and insider's tips, but respect your privacy. We would return

Thanks for everything Lionel and Garin

Always been our choice!

  • 5 of 5
We have been going to Puerto Vallarta for about 13 years, after staying many different places in the beginning we came across Casa Owaissa. Finally! The perfect place that has it all. Walking in the house you instantly feel at home and at ease with its gorgeous decor, there is so many pretty things to look at in this house. Then outside with your private pool and two decks that look out into the bay and the city lights, its perfect from sun up to sun down.
The house has internet, two tv's both with dvd players and cable. Two huge king size comfy beds with soft sheets and plenty of pillows. There are two beautiful bathrooms with showers and great closet space. The kitchen with brand new appliances is also great for those days you just want to stay in and cook and enjoy your special space.
We just got,back from our 5th trip to Casa Owaissa, getting to meet Memo and Norma this time was a great pleasure. They go out of there way to take extra care of you and see that you are having the best experience...... Thank you Lionel and Garyn for always being the perfect hosts.....xo

A perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5
We have traveled all over the world and our stay at Casa Owaissa could just be our favorite vacation yet! The house is lovely and it is located in a perfect location. It is close enough to walk into town and yet far enough that it is quiet and secluded. One day we never even left the house because we were so content! We also loved getting to know Puerto Vallarta. It has a wonderful Mexican culture that if you get off the beaten track, is not too touristy and the people are wonderful. Casa Owaissa had everything we needed and both Norma and Memo are great. It is such a bonus to have staff available in a private home. We enjoyed the seclusion of the home and the private pool. We were looking for a restful and rejuvenating vacation before the New Year, and that's what we got! We will be back to Casa Owaissa, I can promise you that! Thank you Lionel!
