Little did we know when we built CASA PAROTA over 15 years ago, that this was to become the hot area of the Bay of Banderas. We were isolated, now we have it all, but with peace and quiet at La Puntilla. Someone recently said that there will never be a La Puntilla, we have so much property with only 19 homes. Paradise found.

Date of Stay
March 2, 2016
Casa Parota is the third home we have rented in the La Cruz/Bucerias area and is hands down the best property we have stayed at. Our group consisted of my wife and I, our two teenage children and my parents. The layout of the house provides an open concept on the main floor along with access to the pool area.
The pool area was everyone's favourite place to be with a breath-taking view and plenty of sun until late in the day. The pool itself is huge and was always the perfect temperature.
The bedrooms provided a great deal of privacy when needed. Three bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms & the office made for the perfect bedroom for our 13 yr old son.
The house itself is extremely well maintained and very clean. Unlike other homes we have rented in the past, the kitchen was well stocked from pantry to down to utensils.
The Property manager was available for any requests/concerns we had and he was prompt to provide assistance.
Some unique advantages to this property:
1) Yard size - The pool and yard area are enormous when compared to available properties in the area and the patio is well furnished. The owners made a point of having new pool float chairs after we asked if they had any on hand. The upstairs patio provides the best view of all as well as sun shade to the lower level with 3 ceiling fans to make even the hottest days comfortable outside.
2) Entertainment - While we don't go to Mexico to watch TV, having options at night or on the occasional cloudy day is appreciated. Most TV's in the house are Smart TVs with access to Netflix. All TV's are connected to satellite. The house has WiFi throughout including the patio area.
3) Information available. The owners have gone to great effort to ensure renters have access to information for everything they may need to know. This is often a shortfall of other properties.
The La Puntilla community is well managed and maintained. We would often take the short walk down to the Marina to pick up fresh shrimp, crabs & lobster for our dinner.
Of all of the properties we have considered or stayed at, Casa Parota would absolutely be one we would return to. We miss it already!
This has to be the best holiday home ever!
We booked our holiday again with Amy, who was professional and informative, answering any of our questions quickly and efficiently!
There is nothing more we could have asked for at this home away from home! You just need to pack your clothing and everything else is already at the house!
We brought 2 other couples along with us this time and there was plenty of room, lots of time around the pool, barbecuing and making margueritas. The guys enjoyed golfing at the different courses and the ladies relaxed by the pool and went on long walks on the beach. The shopping in town was a lot of fun also.
I'm sure we'll be back for a third time soon!
My friends and I had a great time at Parota! This house has everything you need for a small group or a big family. I almost don't want to tell you how nice the house and pool are, as we want to come back soon. Free calling to the U.S. , which made it good to keep in touch with family. Purified water throughout the house, which was good for the baby. Renting the car and having it at the airport made it easy to get to the house. The gps in the car showed us restaurants and stores and beach towns. John helped us with getting surfboards. The cook Lupita fixed a wonderful birthday dinner.
What a perfect week. We arrived at the airport to the Expedition waiting for us in the parking lot. We hopped in and were on our way, arriving at the house within 25 minutes. it couldn't have been any simpler or more convenient! The house was incredibly well equipped. The owner, Amy, and property manager John, were very accommodating and John attended to our slight problem with the Internet (which was our error) immediately. He offered us excellent suggestions for events to attend and places to eat/visit during our stay. The house and furnishings were beautiful, clean and well maintained. We attended the Farmer's Market in La Cruz and it was wonderful, a great event to take advantage of if you are there at the right time. We loved the house and the complex of La Puntilla. Very peaceful and everyone could not have been more welcoming. The house is situated so it is about a 30-40 min drive into Old Vallarta and only 15 min from Sayulita. The beach was beautiful in front of the property and we rarely saw more than one or two persons on the beach, ever! We have stayed in several VRBOs in Vallarta and the surrounding towns and this is our favorite! Thank you Amy for sharing your beautiful home and to John for all your knowledge and help!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Parota. After our first visit in Feb 2011, we were slightly nervous to return to the same place for fear of ruining a perfect memory....however, it was perfect once again!
We had three adults and three kids staying at Casa Parota for 11 days. We never ran out of things to do, either at the house, in La Cruz, or at the many different towns and beaches that are a short drive away. Our favourite beach was Destiladeras Beach - a beautiful, quiet beach where we often saw whales swimming by. The fish sold on the beach is delicious, and very reasonably priced.
The Sunday market at La Cruz was a great opportunity to check out local artisans - I would recommend walking there along the beach as it's very popular and parking can get a bit hectic. The kids also enjoyed themselves as there was a live band and a kids area where they could try kids yoga and do crafts for free!
The house is well set up for families, and having a pool is great for the kids to swim in the afternoons when the sun is a bit too hot at the beach. The staff were all professional and friendly, and took good care of the pool, gardens, and house.
All in all, a wonderful, relaxing vacation. We hope to be able to return again one day soon!
This was my second stay at Casa Parota and it was another wonderful experience. Everything was smoothly organized by Amy, and Gabby (the property manager) was readily available for questions and advice. The house was as beautiful as I remembered. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you will need to cook and season your food. The pool was big and clean. The community was very safe and all the staff were super friendly. We took a stroll on the private beach every evening, and we adopted the neighborhood dog, Canelo, during our week stay :) If you're looking for a comfortable, quiet and relaxing getaway, this house is it!
Casa Perota was absolutely perfect! We thouroughly enjoyes the house, beach, views, as well as the canine companionship of La Puntilla. We loved cooking inside and out, sleeping in and waking up early, taking day trips and lounging, all of the above.
This vacation rental is perfect for families, adults, children, groups, which ever you prefer. A HUGE thanks to Amy et all for the fantastic rental and most enjoyable time we've had in a long time!
