Guestbook comments from the owner


I want to thank you for all you did to make our week at the Moriarity’s house a week to remember. We had a wonderful time, the food was delicious, the grounds were impeccable, and the advance arrangements that you helped us with went beautifully.

We have arrived home safely and are having to learn to deal with the cold, cruel world again – no more Pacific sunsets, mid-day margaritas, spouting whales, perfect weather, or truly wonderful Mexican people.

Muchas gracias!!

One word. AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (three adult couples) stayed for ten days in early June. Everything about the trip was amazing. The house is located just north of Puerto Vallarta in a very private (gated) beach community. We all felt very comfortable and safe throughout our stay. So much so, that we rarely closed any of the doors and windows. The whole house opens. It's very inside/outside tropical living. The house is a beautiful Modern Vallarta Style Villa with three master suites all having great views of the pacific ocean. From the moment you walk through the garden at the entrance of the villa and pass through the front door, you feel very welcomed. The house has a very comfortable feeling and was built and decorated with an eye for detail. Every bedroom has a very comfortable king size bed and air conditioning. Each bedroom suite is large and tastefully furnished with linens you would expect to find in a five star hotel. The bathrooms are great. Everything feels private. The spacious open floor plan of the living and dining area open out to the exterior patio where you find a beautiful pool, landscaping, and the beautiful colors of the pristine ocean and beach. Private beach. The kitchen is located off of the dining area and opens to the back yard and pool area. We love to cook in my family, so we all spent time in the kitchen. It was great being able to cook while at the same time entertain at the pool. We cooked a lot and didn't have any issues with water quality. There was a large supply of filtered water available at all times. The house keeping and concierge were exemplary and attended to our every request without hesitation. The house is a destination in itself, but if you are the adventurous type you may consider renting car because you can't really walk anywhere. We found the easiest way to deal with that was to have the house manager meet us at the airport when we first arrived, we had rented a car and then we were escorted back to the house from the airport. We did the same thing in reverse when we left. That made things much less stressful. We had major issues with our phones almost the whole time. Of course we didn't think of that!

We would love to come back again and look forward to that day.

Modern and Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

We (a group of six adults and one toddler) had an amazing time at this home. The setting, at the southern end of Punta del Burros, is perfect: quiet, no condos or hotels, great surf, white sand, and amazing sunsets. The rooms are spacious and clean; the house and pool are comfortable and delightful. Our toddler was comfortable playing throughout the house and enjoyed the pool and lawn. We recommend this for groups of all sizes. To note, the home isn't close to bars and restaurants so if you are looking for a party place, this isn't it.

This is the most spectacular get away for friends and family! We celebrated a week long Christmas vacation with our three children (14,12, & 9). Had a Christmas tree delivered and our children decorated with homemade shells. We surfed, paddle boarded, whale watched, snorkeled, swam in ocean & soaked in the fabulous hot tub while easily spotting whales, took long walks on beach, etc. Our daily meals were prepared and served in style. Children love this get away and are eager to return! Wonderful place to allow time to stop and absorb the water front beauty. Excited to return mid January with friend for more relaxing!

Almost a year later, we cant say enough about the property and the owners!

  • 5 of 5

It’s been almost a year since we spent a week in beautiful Caracol, located on the point of the private community of Punta del Burro, almost an hour north of Puerto Vallarta. It is a week that friends and family will never, ever forget, as my husband and I were able to exchange wedding vows at sunset on this beautiful property. The owners could not have been more accommodating, flexible and incredibly friendly. Their staff went above and beyond to assist us ... 100% professionals. The communication with both the owners of the property and staff was fast, incredible and reliable. Every day the home was beautifully maintained, and it was ensured that we would have a comfortable, relaxing week (yes, even with a wedding!) We have been traveling to this community for about four years now since our family also has property in the community, and we constantly recommend it to friends. In fact, our friends still say it one was of the best vacations and celebrations they have ever been apart of! If we weren’t in the midst of a possible move, we would be back again this holiday season! Thank you, thank you, thank you to the wonderful owners …

For travelers: We would recommend taking day trips to Sayulita and San Pancho - good beach, surfing, whale watching, margarita drinking, etc. For excellent dining, try heading to the small towns of La Cruz and Bucerias. Unless you are OK with staying put in the community and cooking meals, we would strongly suggest renting a car.

A Glimpse of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We had the best, most memorable vacation at this beachfront villa. The owners built this villa with special attention to every detail, from the indoor/outdoor feeling throughout the villa and soaring ceilings to the infinity pool and jacuzzi. Every room and balcony has a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean, and it is so relaxing to listen to the waves rolling onto the beach from the villa. We have enjoyed some of the most luxurious accommodations in Cabo San Lucas and Cancun, but this villa surpasses them all. We surfed daily from the beach just beyond the infinity pool and a short walk from the villa. The surfing, like everything else, was spectacular. To remind us of the great memories we made on our vacation, we have pictures on our wall at home which were taken at sunset on the beach with very special friends who enjoyed the vacation with us. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation with a glimpse of heaven from every view, then this is the choice for you. The villa has 3 large bedrooms and plenty of living space, so it is perfect for a family, a couple and for sharing the experience with friends.

Our stay at La Casa Caracol was more than perfect. We felt like true royalty having our own private vacation spot tucked away in a tropical forest. The views were breathtaking and the private beach was perfect for a little morning exercise. The surrounding towns were great for shopping and for a real taste of authentic Mexican cuisine. La Casa Caracol is the true definition of Paradise.
