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!

Review of Casa Fuerte

  • 3 of 5

We stayed 2 weeks there from the middle of February until March 2. The site is ideal as I walked the beaches every day and the weather was beautiful, as well as being a short walk to all the great restaurants in Bucerias.

However there was a problem we had on our first night there. While we were sleeping our first night there we were robbed. Someone came into the condo and stole all our electronic equipment. I thought I had the sliding door locked, but I guess I was wrong. The owner did have a whole paragraph on how to lock up,

I guess I had missed it. There is a pin you stick in the door and as there were three holes there I guess I put the pin in the wrong one. Now that is my fault I guess, but I did find out this same condo was robbed in November. With that being said there must be a better way to secure the sliding door out to the beach area. Our neighbour above has bought a dead bolt for his door so that is easy. I really feel the owner must attend to this problem and not rely on a paragraph in the handout they give you.

That being said what a wonderful area to visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Since 2007 only twice has the renter had items stolen. Unfortunately both times the renter did not secure the slider lock which works just fine when done. As in locking any door, the door should be checked to make sure it has been securely locked. We are glad you enjoyed the rest of your stay.

Nice condo with great location on the beach

  • 4 of 5

We rented Casa Fuerte from Dec21-Jan2 for 12 nights. It was a nice size for 7 people. We especially loved the shared pool at the condo and being steps from the beach. We also enjoyed the boogie boards and the extra lawn chairs to sit under the palapa on the beach! We did find the bedrooms to get quite warm during the day but cooled off nicely for night. We set up the big fan in the hallway to increase a/c circulation to the bedrooms. The master bedroom is a nice size with a nice amount of closet space. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom shower had plenty of water pressure. The futons were fine for the kids to sleep on however one of them is quite hard and very squeaky. The extra bedroom also has a king sized bed which is quite hard. There wasn't as much closet space and the water pressure for the shower was pretty poor. We ended up having everyone use the master shower. The washing machine and dryer were great to do laundry as needed, however the dryer cannot dry more than 4 towels at a time. The dishwasher and oven worked great! There were enough pots and pans to put together a Christmas dinner! We were disappointed to have 4 pairs of sandals go missing off of the back deck one night. A good reminder to lock everything up before you leave or before bedtime. The neighbours were all very friendly and nice to talk to. We enjoyed the location too. Not too close to the action but not too far for a nice evening walk to the town square for ice cream. The care taker, Martha, was very friendly and made us a delicious meal for a very reasonable price. Gigi Spa, located just across the parking lot was great for massages! Our favourite experience was probably spending New Year's on the beach and watching hundreds of lanterns be released over the ocean as well as the firework shows throughout the bay. Amazing!! Overall, this was our first 'off of the resort' condo experience and we would deffinitly try it again!

Comfortable condo on the beach

  • 4 of 5

Over the past several years we have stayed in this condo 3 or 4 times , and we hope to do so in the future. The description is right on, and Pat the owner is helpful in many ways. She leaves no stone unturned in things to do and places to see as well as dealing with living in the condo itself. It's a short walk into town with a variety of great restaurants. It's fun to sit on the your front patio and watch the world go by. I certainly would recommend this place to anyone who wants a relaxing time away. E.J. Morgan

What an amazing place....location is beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a get away and relaxation, and did we ever find the right place for that! The condo offers all of the necessities of a very comfortable stay. The location puts you on a very private and magical stretch of the bay, with a short beach or street walk to all the popular and fabulous restaurants, shopping and of course the public market. The Strong family were excellent to deal with, and offered quick responses and great suggestions for enjoying Bucerias. We have already recommended this property to others, and we will look to return. A very comfortable stay if you want to escape, or indulge in the wonderful surroundings.
