About Karen

We, Karen and Jim, have lived just outside of Seattle for over 40 years. Because we are both still working, we can visit Casa Campanitas only twice a year and did not want to waste our pearl by the sea, so we decided to share its amazing ambiance and location when we are not able to be there.

Karen purchased this condo in 1996

Why Karen chose Playas Gemelas

Over 15 years renting with 100% glowing reports back....including multiple exclamations of 'the pictures don't do it justice!' We fell in love with Casa Campanitas the minute we walked in the door when looking for a vacation property in 1996 ...the charm of the Old World Architecture, and the location, and the view were unbeatable, a combination we saw in no other properties. Every time we stay, it is better than I remember, even after all these years.

What makes this condo unique

This condo is a true find. Its three bedrooms, at the beach with a spectacular view, open-air, along with the brick and arches Old World Charm are becoming a rarity as high rises and modern condos and hotels take over. Casa Campanitas is definitely a marvelously unique experience.

Anniversary and my wifes Birthday 2014

  • 4 of 5
Although our stay was during the rainy season, the weather turned out great. We were able to swim in the pool with no other guests so it felt like we had our own private pool. Hortensia the housekeeper was so personable and made sure the condo was super clean. It was an easy walk down to the beach and so many different restaurants were so close. We met so many wonderful people in PV during our stay that we will definitely return. From the waiters at the restaurants to the vendors that set up our daily activities. We were busy every day. The taxis were so clean and the drivers always gave us information on the town. We brought our daughter and her friend and they were in awe of the condo, the views, the people and had such a great time. This was such a great stress-free vacation.

This condo was splendid, and it is the perfect location...

  • 5 of 5
This condo was splendid. It is the perfect location literally just steps to the beach and yet just a 10 minute walk to the shops and restaurants in the Romantic Zone. You feel like the ocean is in your apartment. The sound of waves all day, the beautiful sunsets enjoyed from the lovely veranda. And if you are not the beach type, there is a pool 20 feet away right outside your door. We were there for a week and nobody else used the pool. It was like having our own private pool. And Hortencia, the maid, is the sweetest woman...we loved chatting with her. I have stayed in other condos but this one is nicer because of the huge open arches and the privacy. It feels like it is just you and ocean. We would stay here again for sure.

No Better Deal

  • 5 of 5
We couldn't possible say enough wonderful things about the time we spent in PV. The condo is in a location that can't be beat. An easy walk down to the beach, an easy walk to old town PV with tons of restaurants. The condo itself is spacious, modern enough, while still maintaining traditional Mexican style. The living room opens to the ocean and you cannot beat the sound of the waves each night and morning. We go to PV every year and this unit is by far the best for the price. The rental process was simple and the owners excellent and responsive.

Escape to Paradise!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at Casa Campanitas with my boyfriend for a week in November and enjoyed every second of our trip! First off, PV is a vacationer's paradise with something to do for everyone! We loved the people, food, ocean, beach and jungle-like tropics. All that aside, we feel staying at Casa Campanitas really put our trip over the top! It's such a special place and far superior to any plain-Jane hotel room or large resort timeshare, as those can be found everywhere and are all relatively alike, while Casa Campanitas is one of a kind! The authentic charm of this home is unreal... Beautiful brick & tile work, curved archways, open-air living and the view! Talk about feeling like you're on the edge of the world! There's a lot to do in the Vallarta area, but after a couple excursions, we'd seen enough and couldn't wait to get back to the beach and condo.

Casa Campanitas has an extremely genuine Mexican allure to it, with a location that cannot be beat! We really enjoyed the convenient ocean access and would walk down to Playa de los Muertos every morning (we had no issues with the stairs, but some w/ young kids or bad knees may prefer taking a $2-3 cab ride instead). We'd find a couple chairs, stick our toes in the sand and rotate between swimming, eating, bartering, sun-bathing & drinking! We'd stay down there all day and then trek back to the Casa and get ready for our night. At night, we'd stroll into the heart of Old Town, which is just a short walk downhill. PV has some phenomenal restaurants and many are within walking distance (or a cheap cab fare). Later, we'd stumble home or cab it, depending on the amount of margaritas consumed! Every night we'd sleep soundly to the crash of waves on the beach below and wake up each morning to a view of the ocean I will never forget! We'd start our day w/ breakfast on the patio, watching the beach action begin and once we were ready, would head down ourselves and do it all again!

Hortensia (the housekeeper) really goes out of her way to make your stay as chore free as possible. Her services and thoughtfulness greatly exceeded our expectations set from staying at typical high-end resorts.

Casa Campanitas is extraordinarily special and I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to stay some place romantic, full of authentic charm, fully equipped, extremely convenient, beautiful &/or incredibly unique! We had the time of our lives and will definitely return!

Great Location in the Best Part of Puerto Vallarta with Unbeatable Views

  • 4 of 5
If you are looking for Old Spanish style in a quiet, picturesque location of Puerto Vallarta, then this is the place for you. The location is excellent. It is walking distance to the best restaurants of the city and in a quiet location just up the hill from Olas Altas. Los Muertos beach is an excellent beach to relax on all day, by far the best beach in the area without going further south to the more remote locations. There are quieter parts of the beach to the south of the condo and more bustling parts with food service just north. Having only seven other units to share the terrace and pool with, you'll enjoy quiet, relaxing days sprawled out on the terrace overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean. A cab to anywhere in Old Town and Downtown will run you about 50 pesos (~$4 US dollars), but you'll find that it is easy to walk most anywhere once you get down the hill. In the summer months, it will get quite warm during the day but there are parts of the condo with good breezes and the nights cool down with the use of the ceiling fans. The winter months should offers amazing temperatures throughout the day. The condo offers great amenities, such as a full kitchen, laundry, two full bathrooms, wi-fi, lots of space to relax in, and beautiful views. The owners' house cleaner is attentive, coming and going very quietly and keeping everything tidy.

Loved the Place

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the condo for a week with four people and loved it. Very clean, nice kitchen with all of the furnishings, shops and restaurants were within easy walking distance, view was phenomenal, open access from living room was a real treat, pool was maintained daily and right outside our door as was the patio that allowed us to gather easily outdoors. We would recommend this unit to anyone as long as you can navigate 45 steps to get down to it. We hope to stay there again someday.

Regardless of your desired activity level (or lack of one), Puerto Vallarta has something for you. There is a wide variety of things to do, from sedentary to rugged land and water activities in and around Puerto Vallarta, many begin within a short walking distance of Casa Campanitas. If you like sightseeing, stroll along the Malecon north to the square for people watching (a true cultural event on Sundays when the whole family comes to town with children dressed to the nines) artwork-painting and outdoor sculptures, visit Puerto Vallarta's most famous church— Our Lady of Guadalupe, take a trolley ride tour of the city or catch one of the tours to Yalapa or Chico's Paradise where you can wade or swim in a spectacular river, or have lunch and watch others as they body surf the pools and eddies. Depending upon the season, there are neighborhood street events and bazaars with great fun, great food and great people watching. For something requiring less effort, you can relax and enjoy the sweeping view of Puerto Vallarta's Bahia de Banderas and the Mexican Pacific Ocean from your living room, terrace, pool or any of the bedrooms at Casa Campanitas. Whether or not you like bird watching or whale watching, you will enjoy seeing dolphins and whales that winter in the bay as they dive and spout, and observe the pelicans diving for fish or flying overhead with terns, green mealy parrots and other avian creatures. Walk down our steps to the beach to snorkel, swim, and sunbathe, then order drinks or a meal under restaurant palapas— just minutes away on the beach. Parasail, rent a fishing boat or take any of a number of specialized cruises and tours - hiking, biking, snorkeling, scuba diving, horseback riding, boating, or kayaking- that begin on our beach or just a few minutes walk north at the pier. Visit the botanical gardens by city bus or cab a bit south of town and plan for a river swim and leisurely lunch as part of your day's outing. If you want to shop you can do so on the beach. Vendors stroll the area and offer a wide variety of merchandise. For an even greater selection, walk 10-15 minutes or take a taxi to Old Town Puerto Vallarta where restaurants and shops abound. Plan a romantic evening dining in and watching the Mexico sun go down and evening fireworks, make reservations for an ocean sunset dinner cruise on the Marigalante Spanish galleon, or party 'til the wee hours at any of a number of hotels, bars or restaurants like Puerto Vallarta's La Iguana Restaurant where you can participate in an authentic Mexican fiesta. There are MANY activities and things to do while you are enjoying the warmth and charm of the Mexican people!
