Overview

Puerto Vallarta Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our casa has been remodeled to have all the updates but still retains its quaint Mexican feel. Why come to Mexico and stay in a hotel that looks like any other place in the USA. This is a 3 story villa located on the water that comes with a boat slip. The top floor is the master suite with its own bathroom and private furnished patio. A famous artist here in Mexico painted a huge tropical mural against one of the walls that goes perfectly with the tropical birds you will hear regularly just outside. The 2nd floor has two bedroom. One bedroom and its own private bath and furnished patio face the water. This is my favorite spot for coffee in the morning and a margarita in the evening. The other bedroom has a private bath and balcony facing a very tropical courtyard with cobblestone and a fountain. The bottom floor is the living room, kitchen, guest bathroom and laundry facilities. We think we have the prettiest kitchen in all of Isla iguana as it was my dad's creation on how to expand what originally was a postage stamp sized kitchen. The guest bath has a beautiful onyx sink that lights up.

Keywords: located close to airport, and walking distance to beach, many restaurants and shops in the marina

About joan c tomlinson

I was raised in Washington State around boating my entire life so I have always loved being by the water and especially boating. I also love to walk, hike, and bike. The ideal climate and community here allow for outdoor activities most of the year. In addition, I like painting oil on canvas. Everything in mexico is so colorful which really appeals to my creative side after completing a 30 year career in public accounting.

joan c tomlinson purchased this villa in 2005

Why joan c tomlinson chose Puerto Vallarta

I came down for Christmas about 11 years ago and realized how wonderful it was. If you are a golfer, there are 2 golf courses in the Marina. If you a bike rider, there are 2 bike rides planned a week where the street is closed that leave from the marina. If you are a boater, well there are the most amazing and beautiful boats as you walk the marina.

What makes this villa unique

We are only 5 minutes from the airport in the Marina of Puerto Vallarta. This is a lovely community called Isla Iguana which is located inside a security village There is parking inside the guard gate but you don't really need to rent a car as you can walk to a huge amount of restaurants, shopping and beaches located in the marina. If you don't like to walk, the guard gate can arrange a taxi. In addition, the local bus system is great and there is a bus stop right on the main street out side the guard gate. The community has a beautiful pool with a giant palapa for hosting barbecues poolside. The pool is heated which you wouldn't think is necessary here in Mexico but it actually cools down at night. Because this community has boat slips, there are a variety of boats to hire so you can go out on a privately owned boat to go fishing or whale watching instead of on a tour boat.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Merry Christmas! We are so sad to be leaving your beautiful condo here at Isla Iguana. The last 10 days have truly been a blessing. The friendly people, the atmosphere and (my favorite) the QUIET made this a wonderful experience, as well as a great place to rest, relax, and recoup after our various adventures in and around Vallarta. !Feliz Navidad!

Amazing Villa!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in this villa over Labor Day weekend, and could not have fallen more in love. This place was perfect. Very modern and spacious, and in the perfect location. I woke up each morning to the most beautiful sunrise surrounded by an impressive marina view. We were just a short cab ride from downtown Puerto Vallarta, and had the most incredible time exploring the town, local restaurants, and things to do. I have never met more friendly people. The villa had a well organized notebook on the coffee table with everything we could want to see and do and great recommendations. I was very well taken care of on this visit. We were set for a great vacation from the moment of walking through the door. It is authentic, clean, and had everything we needed. I could not have asked for a better place to stay! This villa had more to offer to someone wanting a true Mexican vacation than any of the nearby hotels. I would absolutely recommend staying here... You won't be disappointed.

Fantastico!

  • 5 of 5
We spent the month of Feb. here and absolutely loved it. Joni should put a picture of the pool on her web site as it's one of THE amentities of the neighborhood. I would also recommend visiting Google Earth to really get a lay of the land. Isla Iguana is a gated peninsula with 57 homes so you get a real sense of security and friendliness. We were welcomed into the "pool crowd" with open arms. Water volleyball every afternoon if you're so inclined. We would recommend the marina area over El Centro PV as it's much quieter with less hustle and bustle yet only a 15 minute cab ride away from downtown or you can walk to the marina and have any number of good resturants to choose from. Be sure and catch the Thursday night farmers' market at the marina for shopping and outstanding home made Mexican delights. The Sunday market at La Cruz is also a must where you can get just caught camerones y peces and fresh vegetables for a meal fit for a king! We loved Central and South America before we came here and now we love it even more.

Owner's Response: Glad to hear you had such a great time and hope you will come back. I do believe the sense of community that you noticed is the biggest difference between staying at a hotel versus a private home in a residential community such as ours.

Perfecto!

  • 5 of 5
We could not believe it. Isla Iguana was more than we ever expected. The condo was beautiful, secluded, away from all the noise and headache of large hotels. Parking is just steps from the door. The location in the marina provides quiet and security. There is a bus/taxi stop right outside the gates so transportation is extremely easy and makes renting a car optional. The condo itself had everything we needed and was beautifully done. A fully equipped kitchen made meals very easy. Beaches are a bit of a walk but we gladly traded that for quiet and a gorgeous pool. Neighbors and on site staff are all extremely kind and helpful. We miss them already and are anxious to return as soon as we can and would not stay any where else. The location was perfect for our teenagers to take a bus to the Malecon or Old Vallarta and cost only $.75 cents. You have to know where to get off though. What an experience! Took just a few times and we had it down and I was fine with the kids going alone after. Condos are two and three stories which is excellent for privacy or couples but may be hard for families with toddlers. It is a short walk or taxi ride to WalMart and a new mall for shopping or anything you may have forgotten. It is the perfect home base from which to explore all the wonders of Puerto Vallarta and beyond. Did I say we loved it?

Casa Filez is a very nice place to stay, it is in a very clean and neat community where the people are very friendly. The beds and sofas are very comfortable and the kitchen is great. The place is in a good location within easy walking distance to Walmart or the Marina. There is also easy access to buses or taxis. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice well stocked place to stay. Thank you Joni and Bill for letting us stay in your wonderful casa.

great place great location

  • 5 of 5
my wife and i stayed there for 2 months the location is perfect a short walk and you are at the bus stop to take you anywhere in pv or a short 10 min walk and you are at the liverpool mall

the condo is fully equipped with everything you would need to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable

the area is nice and quiet if you want to just relax and enjoy the view of the marina or a short 10 min walk and you are in the heart of the marina zone with restaurants and shops to keep you occupied and entertained

anna marie ( the condo agent)met us at the condo on our arrival to be sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed and stopped by if the front door was open to say hi see if everything was fine or if we needed anything or just to show her smiling face

joni was a pleasure to deal with and the condo was everything we expected

if you are looking for a condo in the marina area and want to be private and quiet yet only minutes away from everything this is the condo

we would stay there again

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review.

You sure are right about the location. In addition to how convenient the location is, the city can be very noisy all hours of the night with music. Our location is just far enough away to avoid the noise but just close enough to be anywhere in the city within a few minutes. Of course its also hard to beat the beautiful view of the water, marina, lovely tropical gardens and palm trees.

You also mentioned that my Casa had everything to make you comfortable and enjoy your stay. Because this is one of my personal homes, I actually live here part of the year and so designed the comfort for myself and what I thought others would like. This is truly one of the big differences from staying at a hotel or a 100% rental property. I tried very hard to make this a home away from home for myself and for my guests so very pleased you noticed this.

I will be very happy to have you stay in my casa in the future.
