About The Owner

Your hosts Margaret Parrish and Jon Christopher Jones welcome you to their perfect beachfront escape in sunny and warm Puerto Vallarta, Mexico!

Margaret, an army brat that has lived all over the world, first fell in love with Vallarta during her honeymoon in the mid 80s. After selling a thriving small café in Salt Lake City, she quickly became bored. Her dreams always brought her back to Vallarta, the place that she fell in love with the minute she arrived.

Jon was a friend of Margaret’s from Salt Lake City where he owned a successful travel agency - the Travel Zone. Ever since a spring break trip to Mexico in high school, Jon’s goal was to one day move there. Jon’s extensive background in hospitality as the Director of Coca-Cola’s Global Hospitality program for the 2002 Olympic Games and many other projects for the Olympic and Paralympic Games, was the perfect training ground as part owner of a pair of hotels.

Together, in 1997, they rescued a diamond in the rough on the perfect beach in Vallarta and Quinta Maria Cortez became a reality after months of renovations and improvements. Just three years later, the neighboring property became available, and Casa Tres Vidas joined the enclave that makes up Villas in Vallarta.

Margaret, Jon, Jose Ruiz de Anda, their bilingual and humorous General Manager who joined the group in 1998 after leaving the Fiesta Americana, and the entire Villas in Vallarta team, look forward to welcoming you!

The Owner purchased this villa in 2000

Guestbook comments from the owner

As always our week at Vida Sol was perfect!! Ramiro, Eduardo and Esther worked so hard to make the week special for our 3 god daughters! We are so appreciative of all the kindnesses and special treatment the girls received.

The food was spectacular all week long. Eduardo and Ramiro make meal times really wonderful!

Jose went out of his way to make sure we were taken care of on Friday night when the AC went out in our room! He relocated us to the master suite in Vida Alta without hesitation. We were so grateful because it was SO hot!

A great trip made even more wonderful by the Casa Tres Vidas staff! Thanks so much!

Exceptional Stay in Puerto Vallarata

  • 5 of 5

Casa Tres Vidas is by far the best vacation location we have ever stayed at. This is a review we almost don't want to write in case it gets too popular! We try to return every year or two and bring new friends along each time, who are all left in open-mouthed awe the moment they walk in. We rented all 3 villas for my husband's 40th birthday and our group could not have been more impressed. The villas themselves are shockingly beautiful, you can't believe it's a real place, but above all the wonderful service of the staff, particularly Ramiro and Julian, made our trip unforgettable. They are the definition of service, in a subtle unassuming way. Every need was met without us even having to ask. Margaret is a gem and so helpful and responsive from the first moment of reservation, to helping us organize a surprise guest and a dinner for 25 people. We truly don't have enough words to describe how much we love Casa Tres Vidas, and are looking forward to our next visit!
