The Blue and Green chairs beach cafes as well as shopping, restaurants, bars and clubs; you can walk to everything…

Comfortable accommodations accommodate groups of up to 10 people and the five bedroom house rental occupies levels three and four of Bugambilia Blanca, so you will have the upper part of the property completely to yourselves. The main entrance into Bugambilia Blanca is between levels two and three. And if more people would like to join you… rent the additional two bedroom condo on level two of Bugambilia Blanca for a total of seven bedrooms.

Our housekeeper's daughters may also be hired for the duration of your stay to prepare your favorite Mexican dishes amongst others. Usually two consecutive meals a day such as breakfast and lunch or lunch and dinner, although the current trend has become for a late brunch with an early dinner. Maid service is three times a week.

Architecturally, Bugambilia Blanca was designed by local architect Jose Jorge Prieto Castellanos and was built in the more traditional Mexican Colonial style, with larger rooms, those great tile floors, and charm in abundance. Each level of the property has a wonderful breezeway terrace where you can sit and relax enjoying the views and the calm ocean breeze. You'll enjoy the vacation house and staying at Bugambilia Blanca.

I first started coming to Puerto Vallarta in 1997 with my now ex partner at a time when I thought I had everything I wanted; the good job, the nice car and the lovely home in Dulwich on the the south side of London. But something seemed to be missing and I missed the enthusiasm, excitement and passion for life I had known as a very young man. We only have one life to live and there is no time for regrets and so in 1998 Simon and I sold and gave away just about everything we owned, to start a new life and a new adventure in beautiful and sunny Puerto Vallarta, Mexico...

Clive Michael Marks purchased this villa in 1998

After three visits within 10 months to this amazing tropical paradise called Puerto Vallarta I was hooked - you just feel so good here - and as luck would have it, we stumbled upon Bugambila Blanca during the last few days of a three week stay. A quick decision had to be made and though it was never in our mind to leave London for Mexico, this beautiful vacation house appealed to us so very strongly I just knew we had to make it ours.

Wonderful architecture with charm in abundance

Large and spacious accommodations with breezeway terraces

Close proximity to Los Muertos Beach, Blue Chairs and downtown

Village like feel of the Zona Romantica, Romantic Zone south side Vallarta

“Great place to stay in Zona Romantica”

  • Submitted: Dec 19, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2011
Stayed here for a full week with two other couples, and it was perfect. Each of us had our own room and bathroom, and the living area and balcony were perfect. We were within a 5-10 minute walk to the beach and anything in Zona Romantica, and the area was very safe.

I would highly recommend staying here if you are traveling with close friends or relatives and want to be in Zona Romantica.

Clive, the owner, was most hospitable and friendly.

My friends and I truly enjoyed Bugambilia Blanca Condos, we didn't know what to expect after always going to Acapulco for our Easter vacation. The drive to Bugambilia Blanca from the airport wasn't long at all. Clive was great in giving us information before we arrived what to do and get the correct taxi to our location. Rooms were big with king size beds that were changed every other day (the other floors were being cleaned and changed.). Store to buy food was down the block, walking distance, liqure stoe across the street, and beach just 10 mins walking distance from Bugambilia Blanca. There is a living room and kitchen in case you want to cook on each floor. Taxi were plenty even at night, and you can even ask them to pick you up to take you back home. If you don't speak Spanish, there was no problem speaking English. Clive always came up to check up on us to see if we needed anything. WIFI was being worked on and got better as the days went by. Clive is a wonderful person to talk with and never one to run away, he always had sugestions or contacts to make our time fun. WE CAN'T WAIT to be back next year for our Easter vacation. Thank You Clive!

“What a time!!!!”

  • Submitted: Dec 19, 2013
  • Stayed: Apr 2012
I traveled with a group of friends after Easter as we usually do. This was our first time to Puerto Vallarta. We weren't sure what to expect. One of our friends found the info to Bugambilia Blanca Condos on the internet and thought that it might be a good spot because of its close accessibility to the beach and to some shops. We had a wonderful time. The house itself is great and lends itself to privacy even in a group. There is always quiet space and just a sense of leisure. The rooms are very spacious and to have a sitting room/kitchen is even better. We were able to purchase things at the store very close and to have some things right there on hand. The staff was extremely helpful and the owner, Clive, was more than helpful. He lives on the premises and is extremely on hands when available. But at the same time is not intrusive in the least bit. I found the rooms to be very clean and the house in general to be just a wonderful experience. I am so looking forward to going back next year. If you ever think about going to this place, don't hesitate. He has been working on the WIFI and this will make the place a marvel.

Wonderful guests, and to other readers of this review; a change of Internet service plus a couple of repeaters and the WiFi is now working just fine.

Oh, and just as a reminder, as well as availing themselves of a private cook to prepare delicious meals exclusively for them during their stay, these guests also enjoyed the therapeutic massages of our house masseur who also has extensive experience in chiropractic adjustment.

“Another great experience!”

  • Submitted: Dec 19, 2013
  • Stayed: Apr 2013
This is my third year visiting Bugambilia Blanca Condo and it was once again a great experience. Clive is so very gracious and friendly. Any small issue is dealt with swiftly. Still after him for a microwave oven. LOL! We have a group of 6-8 people every year and they all have a wonderful experience. The cleaning staff has also been our cooks for two meals a day. Wonderful!!
I am even planning an off season visit soon. Once construction around the condo is completed the only complain during the day- the noise- will end. I would highly recommend this condo for your stay. Thanks again Clive for another wonderful experience. Your Chicago friends!

Room Tip: Al room are very comfortable, air conditioned and clean private bathooms with great water pressure.

Thank you Jp! It's always great welcoming back familiar faces to our vacation accommodations at Bugambilia Blanca and yes, Puerto Vallarta has become so very popular now that new projects are being built all across town. Fortunately though, the project nearest to us has now completed all the noisy, heavy duty work and they are now concentrating on the interior and finish-out.

High season is almost here once again and we are preparing ourselves for another wonderful season in sunny Puerto Vallarta.

HARD 35 real ness! & 10 HARD living messes!

I had the best HARD 35 birthday ever! My name is Hector and I'm sorry to Clive that I never got around to doing this review earlier. I'm a stoner so take my time very slowly.
So even before booking the PH, top 2 floors, I had read some reviews that weren't great. So what did I do, you may ask? I stayed there in Nov 2012 to research and see if this would be the right place for my HARD 35 Bday blow-out! And it was.
Now the group I went w in 11/2011 wasn't the awesome amigos I took for my party. I was asked to go on an annual trip w a different group of people, all of who I won't ever travel again with; for personal reasons. With the exception of Patrick and Eric cuz they are rad and part of my HARD 35 krewe. The rest of the queens were rude and high maintance. But even doe the Nov queens weren't the laid back type, I didn't let that spoil my impression of the PH and Clive.
I knew that it would be and was the perfect place for my misfit set of close personal amigos! And my budget.
So now for HARD 35 party that took place on 1/27/13! Which was HARD, awesome and perfect! Went off w a bang! 10 of my closest friends in PV, Mx all underneath the same roof. Bryan who came all the way from Hong Kong for it, Steve from New Orleans was there. Most of us where from the LBC! It was my dream come true. But the real hero was Clive the owner of the building who also lives on the 1st floor. He was such a pro in handling all our drunken, pill popping, stoned personalities. That he added to the greatness of the HARD 35 messy Krewe. He didn't even freak w someone got locked out naked, just smiled and tried to help w the situation in a very calm matter. The place was basic, but every room had its own WC and very clean. Bring your own toiletries but if you don't there's a store 2min walk away. The wifi work so the on-line hook ups where flowing. Honestly if I could swing it I would have my SWEET 36 there but we are gonna do New Orleans instead. Oh I almost forgot one of the nicest maids ever. I would totally recommend this place for anyone on a budget & plan on staying there again. Actually after writing this I realize I need to smoke another bowl and book another flight out there before the season is up. Cheers! & thank you Clive, sweet maid & you for reading.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much Hector for sharing your birthday group stay in our vacation house. Which just goes to show, couples travelling together, family get-togethers and birthday celebrations; our affordable vacation house rental at Bugambilia Blanca is suitable for everyone. And always… service with a smile.
