What a beautiful casa! It is decorated with lots of arts and plants, with trees surrounding it. The casa is very spacious and could accomodate a number of people easily. There's everything you need here. If you like to lie in the sun, you may have to go to the beach, at least at this time of the year, as no sun hits this casa. But the plus side is that it is always cool with a breeze. We didn't need to use the airconditioners. It's an easy, 10 min. walk to the beach, either down the cobblestone street, or quicker down a path by the river...you need to be able and sure-footed as it is a bit treacherous. We walked down every day and ubered back, easy. The roof top pool was heated which was a big draw for us...most unheated pools are too cold. This one is perfect and the palapa and roof top is gorgeous. A quiet neighbourhood, though there seemed to be not many people around. Overall, and excellent place to stay!
We love Puerto Vallarta and like being central to city.
This home was beautiful and up in the hills with an awesome view of the bay and skyline.
I will be back.
Wonderful Relaxing Vacation
Great property. I went with a group of friends and we just wanted to relax. This was the perfect home for us. The pool is on the rooftop with very nice views. We went to the beach a couple of times but found hanging at the pool was so easy and relaxing.
The maid was very sweet. The rental process was easy from beginning to end. I can't wait to go back
Relaxing Hillside Home
What a lovely home. The views are as promised and the home has a wonderfully styled interior. The home is very comfortable with a large seating area downstairs both inside and out and lovely lounges and chairs on the rooftop pool area. The house was perfect for 3 couples with plenty of spaces so that everybody was able to find a place to relax. The pool has sun for about 3 hours but the surrounding patios are beautifully shaded with lush vegetation perfect for reading that book.
We highly recommend getting the pick-up from the airport...just takes all the challenge out of your stay.
The beds are all very comfortable and the linens are quite nice with plenty of thick towels.
We usually run down to P.V. every couple of months for a few days and this was the first time that we have rented a house. We usually get a Hotel on the beach. That being said we liked the house location up on the hill...it was just a little challenging walking down to dinner in town. The "tire" trail is treacherous in the light of day and only with proper shoes, I do not recommend this path by night. The streets are very negotiable just plan the time.
For me on the the biggest perks of staying here is the close proximity to my favorite restaurant in P.V. Vista Grill. I would have eaten there every night.
Great vacation home
Four of us shared the home and absolutely loved the fact that there were so many different spaces to relax in. The housekeeper did a spotless job (and as someone also pointed out, if you don't want her to do your laundry, don't leave it out and visible!) . The kitchen is well equipped and easy to cook in.The walk down the tire path was very daunting the first day, but by day 2 it was a snap. We love PV, and prefer to spend time in Old Town, so this was perfect. The only downside is how close condos are all around it. We were fortunate that most were empty, so there was little noise except for one night when neighbors had a loud party..No big deal. Loved the roof top pool- fabulous. Would definitely come back.
July 29 I arrived at Casa Hortencia....and my "mexican family" arrived early the next day. From the moment we entered this house, we felt "at home." Beautifully decorated. Mexican style but not "over the top." Modern kitchen with everything one needs to cook! Stainless steal appliances, granite, and high end pots/pans. Washer and dryer in the house and much needed! I can't tell you how beautiful the view is. I miss it already! Overlooking the bay-spectacular at night and in the daytime. Feels like you are in the jungle with natural sounds all night long. Parrots, etc visiting you on the veranda-not to mention iguanas (harmless). The staff is excellent, and not "in the way." The owner ensures that everything is done right and the staff are respectful and eager to please. This is a home, not a house. Loving touches everywhere. This was the first time I rented a house (vs hotel) and it was a great choice. I plan to return again, in the very near future. I brought my small dog Lola and she thoroughly felt at home. There is plently fo space, all the comforts of home - more towels than you can ever use! I could go on and on, but it was a RELAXING and memorable vacation for everyone. I would highly recommend a stay here.
