My wife and I are independent Art Dealers with over 60 years of experience between the 2 of us. We owned a Nationally Acclaimed Gallery in Laguna Beach, California for over 25 years. My wife was voted one of the top 10 female Art Dealers in the USA.
This property is unique in style and location. It is located on Punta Negra Beach on the South Shore at the 6.5 Km marker. It affords you quite and privacy that one needs to relax and renew one's spirit with beauty and peaceful environment.
It is beautiful with outstanding ocean and Pto. Vallarta city lights views. Great place to view whales during the season. It has one of the last pristine beaches in Pto Vallarta.It feels like you have your own private beach.
Dear Shawn and Bob,
We all thank you for letting us share your home-we had the most wonderful time and the weather was great. Casa Artistica is the perfect place for three couples as we each had our own and private sleeping spaces along with bath and plenty of room to play cards, dominoes, read, watch TV or just stare out at the ocean. It was perfect. None of us wanted to leave and realized that we could have stayed at least another week. The staff was most courteous and helpful. We left the place as we found it-clean and neat. Thank you again. Brenda, Paul, Judy, Pat, Judy and Don.
I would like to start by offering a heartfelt Thank You to Bob and Shawn for the opportunity to stay in their beautiful home. Also to all of the great staff,especially Claudia the maid and Francesco the doorman for making our trip even better.Every aspect of our 6 week stay in this great condo on Punta Negra beach was great. The whole unit well thought
and perfect for a group of 6.Beds were very comfy,bedrooms/bathrooms spacious and well equipped.
Kitchen was very large and a joy to prepare meals in.Drinkable water and an ice maker an added bonus. Having two phone lines (Vonage and local)and wifi made keeping in touch with home a breeze.The common pool area and pool were very nice. We used it many times during our stay, temperature was perfect. There is also a large gas grill in this area with plenty of seating.The beach is very pretty with soft sand,nice for walks,splashing around and sunning. Buses and taxis were always available just outside the front of the building. Our group took the bus somewhere everyday,for only 8 pesos. Location of this property is ideal, a quick 3 miles north to Old town/Malecon/Los Muertos beach.The town and beach area of Mismaloya,along with our favorite beach bar/restaurant Teo's,a fun zoo,2 Tequila tasting tours,horseback riding,zip lines and fabulous $20 one hour massages are just a few miles south.A bit farther south on the bus marked Botanical garden/ El Tuito (which stops just outside of condo) Our group visited both on separate days and both were enjoyed. The huge balcony overlooking the bay was our favorite part of this property though.We grilled dinners,played cards,watched birds,whales and dolphins,viewed gorgeous sunsets,saw fireworks,read books,enjoyed many cocktails and ate every meal there. I would not hesitate to return to this property and all the area has to offer.
Our Christmas holiday was fantastic, the property was really beautiful and was exactly as described. The property owners were very easy to deal with and made every effort to make our stay memorable. We were travelling with our adult children and our 9 month old grandson. The 3 full size king bedrooms each with full baths gave all members of our family the space they needed to enjoy the holiday.
The large and beautiful living space was very comfortable and spacious. The master suite includes a sitting area with attached deck Technology includes WiFi, cable for the 5 TV's and DVD players We hired the house staff to cook some of our meals and do our shopping. They were very flexible and helpful and the meals were fantastic. Claudia is made our meals to our requests and timeframes.
Beautiful views, a private beach and clean pool and facilities. There were taxis and buses across the street and a 10 minute drive to central PV. Full security on site, as we were travelling with an infant this was really important to us.
I highly recommend this property and thank Robert and Shawna for making our stay memorable.
Thanks Bob & Shawn,
The place is fantastic.....your description is very subdued.....my wife said it was the best vacation she has ever had.......we could not get over the vast amount of art in the condo....on top of that, it was very clean, comfortable, and felt like home.....had a chef dinner for six which was stupendous.............great seeing the whale pups playing from the balcony or pool.........We will definately be repeat customers...again, thanks for letting us rent your condo.
My kids and I spent a week at this property and had a marvelous time. The home was beautiful but functional. We had wonderful quiet beachfront and spent hours just playing in the waves and building sandcastles each day. It was easy to get taxis to town and was a quick ride into the downtown area for going out and doing activities. Security was good and we felt safe. Although it is in a condo building we felt nicely secluded and did not hear our neighbors, All in all, a great place and we hope to return and stay there again.
The owners were very hospitable, even set up a private dinner for us – which was great. The staff was also very helpful! The condo was beautiful, and there was plenty of room for 6 people. If you are in PV, you can’t leave without going to Pepe’s Taco’s!
Puerto Vallarta is a lively yet quaint resort destination located at approximately the same latitude as Hawaii. With reliable weather and abundant sunshine, the yearly daytime highs average in the mid 80's. On Mexico's Riviera, Puerto Vallarta has little rainfall from October to June while offering a unique cultural experience as you wander its cobblestone streets, small shops and town squares. Art walks and home tours provide fascinating insight into the jewels of Vallarta. Dining and night life opportunities are among the best in the world, offering a full spectrum of local and international cuisine. A vibrant and varied bar and disco scene runs well into the wee hours of the morning. Abundant transportation alternatives and a strong sense of personal security are key features contributing to Vallarta’s ever increasing popularity.
Other Activities: wake boarding, canopy tours
