We have stayed at Casa Christina for the past 2 yrs. The unit is beautifully and elegantly decorated. Every detail has been considered. The complex is a tropical paradise near all the activities you'd want from PV. The owner is gracious, answers all your inquiries and is clear in explaining all rental conditions. He supplied us with additonal pictures. His property management company received us when we arrived and explained everything we needed to know about the unit and the complex. They also returned to the unit on our departure date to receive the keys and to assess that everything in the unit was ok with us. We also were appreciative of the (gifts) given to us by the owner. I would highly reccomend this unit. It's location, size, outdoor patio, decoration, details, experience with the owner and the property management company was amongst the best we ever experienced. We travel alot and have primarily rented units. Casa Christina receives an A++ from us.

My husband and I had such a fantastic time during our stay at Casa Christina this past June! The location, first of all, is perfect! Centrally located in the town and only a 5-10 minute walk to the beach. We loved the surrounding restaurants, and particularly enjoyed the fresh squeezed orange juice cart on Francisca Rodriguez. The house itself is beautifully furnished and was so comfortable to lounge around in after a day at the beach. We had everything we needed to have a fun night in- stereo, cards, games, you name it. To be able to make your own meals is the best - we even used the BBQ pit to grill some fish we had caught on a fishing trip! The outdoor garden/patio area is beautiful and what makes Casa Christina so special - we laid out in the lawn chairs and read and felt so relaxed. We even invited friends over for drinks and shared out adventures in Puerta Vallarta around the patio table.
When we needed a break from being around town, the pool is only a few feet away. Reclining comfy beach chairs and a gorgeous view down to the beach make it a great spot to see whats happening around town. June is a perfect time to be there- we had the pool virtually to ourselves. I also loved having a gym with a treadmill- just to be able to run off some of the delicious meals we were scarfing down.
I would recommend this place to couples looking for a romantic getaway, to families with young children, or even for a bachelorette weekend. There are some really fun bars!!! This is such an awesome city, and staying here made our vacation that much more memorable. Thank you Michael!!!
Over 20 years we have stayed in many different rentals in the Old Town, or Zona Romantica, of Puerto Vallarta. Casa Christina has become our top, favourite spot. Our most recent 4 week stay is the second, the former having been for approx. 3 weeks two years ago. As other reviewers have commented the unit is beautifully located within the larger condo complex and it is very comfortably set-up for settling in and feeling 'at home'. From the large, open terrace with its views to the provision of all the basic amenities that one would want for living easily while on vacation, Casa Christina succeeds on all counts. We like the wireless Internet access because we need it and we appreciate the Vonage phone for North American calls. The in-suite laundry and the kitchen facilities make a longer stay work well. As a ground floor unit in a gated complex, there is extra security with the wrought iron grills on windows and French doors. The owner is open to all questions and sincerely offers to help with anything one needs. His management company is nearby and very prompt to respond. Conscientious maid service, a beautiful pool steps away, and all the restaurants and bars of this fun and funky part of PV make this an ideal spot for this mature couple and our friends!
Our recent stay at Casa Christina was wonderful! The grounds and pool were beautiful and extremely well maintained and the condo had every amenity we could have wanted or needed and was very clean. Plus, the ocean view from the patio was amazing.
The location was a very short walk from Old Town Puerto Vallarta. We especially enjoyed the location because it felt like we were seeing a part of the culture that would not have been available to us had we stayed in a hotel.
The person who met us at the condo was very helpful and thorough. He explained everything to us and gave us all the information necessary to make our stay relaxing and worry free.
Finally, the owner was great! He was always prompt in his responses to my email and so friendly. It was such an easy process to rent Casa Christina for the week. Everything went extremely smooth. It's obvious that the owner takes much pride in his condo and truly wants people to enjoy their stay.
I highly recommend this condo to anyone who is looking for a fabulous place to stay in Puerto Vallarta!
Four of us, two couples, stayed in Casa Christina for two weeks in February 2010. My husband and I have stayed in four other condo complexes in PV on four previous occasions, always looking for the perfect place. Well, we found it! The condo complex is wonderful - the right location close to activities, restaurants, Los Muertos Beach, buses - but secluded enough to be quiet. Selva Romantica has great amenities, lovely surroundings in tropical gardens, great pool, even a gym. Casa Christina must be one of the jewels in the crown. It is very spacious - plenty big enough for four adults, beautifully decorated, all furnishings, linens, kitchen equipment, washer-dryer, dishes, decor that you can think of and desire. Every detail has been looked after. We didn't deal directly with Michael, the owner, but with another agent, but everything worked well, including the greeting and goodbye from his representatives.
We tried to book this unit again for next January or February. Unfortunately, it was already booked (in any case, the people who were there before us also tried and would have beat us to the punch!). So, we have booked another 2-bedroom unit in the same building of the same complex.
