About Amy or Bill Welch
Little did we know that in driving around the Bay of Banderas 15+ years ago, that we were moving into the hot area of the bay. When we built the house, there was a field of cows next door. Since that time, the Four Seasons, numerous golf courses, the La Cruz marina, and a new highway have been built to the north area of the bay where our house is located.
Amy or Bill Welch purchased this House in 1998

Great Casa In La Cruz
A group of 8 of us really enjoyed our stay at Casa Parota in La Cruz. The place is very spacious and comfortable for a larger group. The beds are comfortable, the showers always had hot water, the pool is great and there is plenty of comfortable chairs and sofas inside and outside the house.
Thank you to the owners and staff for a wonderful place to stay.
Thanks for taking the time to write such a great review.
Great weather, quiet and friendly neighborhood
La puntilla is a friendly neighborhood of 19 homes,in la Cruz. Welcoming community of restaurants and activities.
Thanks for the nice review.
Great family home for perfect vacation
We enjoyed the location, the pool and proximity to beach.
The owners were very responsive to any request and we felt welcome . The property manager, the cook lupita and the maid, were all very professional and caring.
We had a great time with our children and grand children . The best attraction was the sailing trip we took with Ada sailing, this was truly the highlight of our holidays. Plenty of beaches around, small villages and shopping within minutes by car. And the weather was perfect...
Thank you for taking the time to write a review.
We appreciate that you liked the house and had a good time. Generally, the weather is perfect from November to July or August - in the 80s during the day and cooling off to high 60s at night.

Ultimate Family Vacation Home
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!
WOW! Thanks, Ryan, we appreciate your enthusiastic review.
We hope to see you again. Glad you liked the new salt water pool.
Amy and Bill, owners
CASA PAROTA WAS MORE THAN EXPECTED. BEAUTIFUL AND COMFORTABLE FURNISHINGS...SPOTLESS, AESTHETIC ARTIFACTS AND HANGING ART, COMFY BEDS...WE HAD 7 PEOPLE. KITCHEN A+ WITH EVERY APPLIANCE IMAGINABLE, BOTTLED WATER, CUPBOARDS FILLED WITH SPICES, FOOD WRAPS, AND LOVELY PLATES. BIG DINING ROOM TABLE TO GATHER AROUND.. COMPLETE LAUNDRY ROOM, POOL TOYS FOR THE LOVELY POOL, LARGE OUTSIDE SITTING AREA, QUIET AND PRIVATE NEIGHBORHOOD. AMY, THE OWNER, WAS ON TOP OF EVERYTHING WITH IMMEDIATE RESPONSES. JOHN, THE HOUSE MANAGER, GAVE US GREAT TIPS ABOUT FOOD, DAY TRIPS, AND GENERAL INFO. AMY'S HOUSE BOOK IS FILLED TO THE BRIM WITH ALL INFO YOU COULD POSSIBLY NEED.

ALSO, HAVE LUPITA COOK A MEAL OR TWO FOR YOU...DELICIOUS.
WOULD RETURN IN A HEARTBEAT AND RECOMMEND HIGHLY.
THANK YOU SO MUCH, Marsha, for your lovely review of the house. I'm glad you and your family enjoyed your vacation - and hope to see you again soon. In January, we're changing the pool to a salt water pool - should be fun. We always look for ways to enhance our guests' stay.

Perfect house for us
Casa Parota was the perfect house for our family. We had great communication with Amy during the planning stages of our trip. She told us about all of the local sights and things to do. We took advantage of as much as we could while we were there. The weather was spectacular! We walked down the beach to the fish market every day so we could have fresh fish for dinner every night! We sat out by the pool every day and enjoyed relaxing with our children and grandchildren. The house was very well stocked with everything we needed, plenty of glasses and dishes. I hated to leave! We loved the area and would love to return. I miss the view of the mountains and the water!
Wow! Thanks for writing the review. We love the house, our little community of 19 homes and the area. We're pleased that you had a good time. I know the new on-demand hot water system was not working perfectly, but we go down tomorrow to the house - and if need be, we'll throw out the expensive new system and go back to the old-fashioned hot water heater which worked perfectly but was more expensive to run. Thank you for taking the time to share your comments with potential guests.
