Rob and I grew up in Canada and lived in the Okanagan before selling everything to move to Mexico. We started taking the kids out of school, first for 2 months, then 4 months during the winter. We traveled around in our bus but kept coming back to Puerto Vallarta. It felt good...felt right. I cried every-time we had to go back home.
In 2005 we put the house up for sale, packed our cube van and left Canada without looking back. We arrived in vallarta and bought a 4 unit house downtown then we bought angelsrest
Liza or Rob Needham purchased this house in 2005
We built a giant house before leaving Canada and I promised Rob we'd never own a place that size again! I didnt really lie...its not the same size...its bigger. I couldnt help it! I fell in love with the house and the neighborhood. I was sold when I went to the third floor and saw 'my' palm trees swaying in the breeze with the entire Bay in sight. It felt like home. It felt better than home! Poor Rob didnt have a chance.
We renovated for a year...added more square footage, then opened as a bed and breakfast. One of our first customers has never left the Angels rest family. He met and fell in love with our oldest daughter, got married and gave us our two grandkids.
One thing that sets us apart from most places is that you are in real Mexico. This isnt a fancy resort with someone catering to you or keeping you in a box. This is real...we live amoung some of the nicest, most polite people in the world. The first night we moved into the house ~ all five of us sleeping in the kitchen with no electricity and no clue of what was to come next, our neighbor brought us a giant platter of food. I was blown away! Ive never seen that kind of consideration before. I didnt even know my neighbors names before let alone reach my hand out to them! Within weeks of living there if I called our daughter 4 or 5 woman would point or call to her too. This is Mexico, this is our community. I love this place!
