About Owner / Property Manager

Our family is from the Chicagoland area and has always loved traveling. We enjoy the water sports, walking along beaches and,of course, the ocean. We have two grown children, one a Doctor of Physical Therapy and the other in Aerospace Engineer. Pat,a real estate agent for over 25 years was also a travel agent for over a decade. Dusty is a Civil Engineer who writes Traffic Engineering Software. Pat and the kids have taken Spanish in school and are getting better at it with each visit. Dusty took French in school and is learning quickly. As you can see from many of our photos, we are also die hard Cub fans. We recently moved to S. Carolina.

Owner / Property Manager purchased this condo in 2007

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Nayarit

We enjoy the water sports, walking along beaches and, of course, the ocean. When looking for a place to spend part of our winters to get away from the cold and snow, we wanted a place which was near an airport but away from major crowds. We wanted it to be close enough to a city for the culture the city has to offer,but we didn't want to live in a city. Bucerias was the perfect answer. It has fabulous little taco stands to fine dining. It has a shopping market and is close to larger grocery stores. Bucerias always has something fun going on and after we have traveled all over the world, this is the area we have chosen as it is relaxing, affordable, easy to get to and still gives us wonderful culture. It is perfect for singles, couples or families.

What makes this condo unique

One of our best assets is that we are smack dab on the oceanfront! We love to hear the surf, to watch the happenings along the beach which can include whales & dolphins, local fishermen, pelican diving, frisbee and kite boarding to mention just a few. There is even a woman who walks along the beach daily selling fresh baked muffins. Yum! Casa Fuerte offers an easy walk into Bucerias or a short drive or bus ride into Puerto Vallarta, Sayulita, Punta de Mita and other areas. We love that we can walk or bus all over the area. Another wonderful feature, but ohhhh, so good, is we have a juicer and we make fresh squeezed orange juice often.

Guestbook comments from the owner

To all of you who have stayed at or inquired about staying at Casa Fuerte in Bucerias, Mexico:

We have just completed a beautiful remodel of the oceanfront property. We used a local wood for all kitchen and bathroom cabinetry from the Primavera trees. The counters are of a lovely granite. The flooring has been updgraded to Porcelain tiles. The bathroom showers also have lovely porcelain tiles as well as accent mosaic tiles in the showers. All fixtures are Moen Nickel to prevent oxidation from being near the sea and salt water. Bedroom and bathroom doors as well as the entry door have been replaced with custom Primavera doors as well. All new kitchen appliances are stainless steel. We installed a full size stainless dishwasher, a 6 burner gas stove, a new microwave and undermount stainless sink. We chose a full size washer and dryer set as well. There is now a 20 gallon water heater, a hydro pump and what all will appreciate, a water purification system!!! The purified water allows you to drink from any sink tap and also runs to the dishwasher. We have made a computer desk with internet in the great room, re-upholstered chairs, made seating at the window bench area and added sleeping in the den area. We have Star Choice/Shaw Direct (English satellite) TV, a DVD player and DVD and book selections, many games and even boogie boards. There is now a dining table with sand to show off found shells and sea glass. A safe has been installed in the master bedroom closet which is bolted to the wall. We have added a hammock chair to the screened porch off the master suite. We have security bars on all windows except the front sliders. Please feel free to check out any remaining availability for 2010/2011 and also to forward this on to any friends and family that may be interested in renting. Our VRBO site is www.vrbo.com/132969 Casa Fuerte is located on a dead end cul de sac street just a couple blocks north of town. We have the pool just steps from our terrace as well as the beachfront steps from the pool. Enjoy!

Even better than the video!!

  • 5 of 5

I was part of the group with Jenny W, spending a week at Casa Fuerte with four friends. The apartment is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. It was outfitted with all we might need, and the location is amazing. Our group really appreciated having indoor space, area by the pool which included sun and shade, and the Pacific Ocean just steps away. It gave the five of us a chance to be together comfortably as a group but also take private time needed. There are plenty of good restaurants in the area, as well as small stories where we could purchase groceries. It's also easy to take a local bus to a supermarket, if desired. We didn't have a car, and we did just fine. It's really helpful to have filtered water in the taps, so we didn't have to be vigilant about drinking the wrong water. What a beautiful, restful place!

Wonderful Place to Stay Right on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

My four friends and I spent a wonderful week at Casa Fuerte. We loved the ocean views, the patio poolside with plenty of sun and shade. The kitchen is well supplied. The condo was well cared for and the caretakers were very responsive. Pat and Dusty even found us at dinner out our first night (we had asked for a recommendation) to make sure that all was okay. The condo was plenty spacious for our group of five. I hope to go back soon.

Restful beauty!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week at Casa Fuerte with four friends and it was heaven. The condo was perfect for us and the outdoor patio/pool was a beautiful place to enjoy the ocean's beauty and relax while reading or resting. The Cabana provided shade when the sun got hot and the ocean was just steps away for an afternoon swim. All the amenities, great information about the community and all within walking distance or a bus ride away. Highly recommend!

A Beautiful Way to Begin a New Year!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a two week stay at Casa Fuerte. This was our third stay in Bucerias (the first two at a different location) and this was our favorite. I sincerely echo the positive comments from former renters. The detailed information we received prior to arriving was very helpful and provided a comfort level : i.e. directions to condo, emergency information, entry lock directions, shopping, etc. Pat even stopped by to see if we had any concerns, which we did not! The condo has been updated and has all the amenities one would want including a water purification system (a jug of purified water was also available). We appreciated the use of a washer and dryer, wireless internet, stainless steel kitchen appliances (dishwasher), a safe, ceiling fans and more ... senior citizens that we are, we were not adventuresome enough to use the boogie boards however! You must have Martha cook a Mexican dinner for you, it was delicious. Our favorite restaurant for dinner was Mezzogiorno and our favorite breakfast place was Hojarasca (the best cinnamon rolls!). Both are less than a ten minute walk from the condo (information in large white notebook). There is music every Thursday evening in the square ... a wonderful opportunity to observe Mexican culture (good pizza in the sports bar on the second level, also great views of the dancing, etc.). Pedro (taxi driver) took us to Mega for groceries and waited for us and also took us back to the airport. His prices are very reasonable and he is a delightful man. His phone # is in the guest book and also in Pat's information. We did not hesitate a minute to rebook this property for next January. The owners are genuinely concerned that you experience one of you best vacations ever, and you will!

The Right Place

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely condo in a small complex with a marvelous view of the beach. Most of the week we were there, we were the only occupants so it felt as if we had the property to ourselves. The pool is lovely, and the ocean is just steps away, right in front of the condo. The proximity to town was helpful as we did not have a car, so easy for groceries and dining. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking ware and dishes. Pat was very attentive and responded promptly to a problem we had. There is air conditioning in the living room/kitchen area, but not in bedrooms. It was extremely hot when we were there, so the main room was very comfortable but hot sleeping at night. Other than that, it was a wonderful stay with a beautiful beach and view. Great for oldsters like us with some mobility issues.
