About Luisa Vargas

These are your hosts: Luisa, Oscar, and Alejandra enjoying our yearly Holiday vacation at our beautiful beachfront penthouse in Puerto Vallarta. We also live in San Diego, California and are in constant communication with our Vallarta staff who are like family to us. I love shopping and the restaurants around our area which is two blocks south of the Hotel Buenaventura right at the entrance to town. Walking south 10-20 minutes we find Tapas Barcelona Restaurant, the Malecon boardwalk, downtown shopping areas,the Plaza and Cathedral, Zumba classes, fish/shrimp on a stick with cold beers, discounted massages at the Hotel Los Arcos, and many other points of interest and fun. There is constant police patrol on the beach as of several years ago and it is extremely safe.

Luisa Vargas purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Luisa Vargas chose Puerto Vallarta

Our property was purchased by my parents in the 1960s and I have been coming to Puerto Vallarta since I was a child. Forces of nature arrived in 2002 and we had to demolish and re-build.This new building, Casa Olas Del Mar is my heart and my heritage. Where else could I have a place on the beach!!!!!! Our dream is to retire here for six months of the year.

What makes this apartment unique

We spend lots of our time on our balconies/terraces or in the garden enjoying the spectacular views of the ocean, water sports, and people watching. Of course, we swim in the ocean which is roped off for safety. There are lifeguards up and down the beach as well as police making sure it is an orderly and safe environment. The 'palatial' bathroom is fabulous and you can even see the ocean while you're showering! We also love walking the Malecon at night with its festive atmosphere:balloons, sand sculpture, gelatos, street corn, Cuban music and live band. Then a ten minute walk home and you are lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I spent the month of December, 2012 at Casa Olas Del Mar in Puerto Vallarta. The city is very safe and has good services. We enjoyed our stay there. As you can see from Luisa's photographs, the apartment is right on the beach. It is also conveniently located for walking to grocery stores, markets, restaurants, and the Malecon. Our neighbors on the first and second floors, as well as Luisa and her family, were very warm and welcoming. Luisa responded quickly to any of our requests. I would recommend Casa Olas Del Mar for all of these reasons, plus the apartment is good value for the money.

Our stay at Casa Olas del Mar was a last minute getaway. Luisa,the owner made it so easy to make our arrangements. She was very prompt in her responses via email. Casa Olas del Mar is located in our favorite neighborhood and beach , Playa Camarones in Puerto Vallarta. The complex is small,only four units so it's very private. The apartments are very secure,nicely furnished,well maintained and clean. The beach is much quieter than Los Muertos Beach. We loved that Ley's grocery store is only a block away...very convenient. Lots of great less touristy restaurants within blocks. We are already missing our daily coffee and cocktails on the porch with that beautiful ocean view.

Great place! I keep returning every winter.

  • 5 of 5

Having spent most of the last three winters at Casa Olas del Mar you may justifiably conclude that the experience has been very much to my liking! The building itself is fairly new, well built, functional, clean, and is accompanied by an attractive garden available to residents. The apartments are comfortably furnished and well equipped, include TV and wifi, and the staff, i.e. house cleaner, repair man and gardener are all polite and very helpful. The location of the house is not only on a groomed beach but in an urban neighburhood rather than in a “tourist enclave”. The supermarket is just a block away. All of this, plus the perfect view of the astounding sunsets, makes Casa Olas del Mar a quiet jewel in a sometimes busy beach environment.

GORGEOUS GATED BEACHFRONT ELEGANCE

  • 5 of 5

Everything in this gated ocean front condo is brand new, pristine, mint condition and only 25 yards from the water. The windows and abundant patios/decks look on to the sandy beach below for guests to enjoy margaritas over a glorious Pacific sunset.. A lovely private garden with native plants and hammocks are in a walled area on the ground floor. Friendly and helpful housekeepers keep the apartments spotless. Local non-tourist restaurants with excellent food are within blocks. And, if you want to cook, grocery stores within walking distance have plentiful and fresh ingredients for you to prepare in the amply appointed kitchen. Comfortable beds, and large family/living/dining room round out the property's floor plan. The owners are accessible and conscientious. Please do not hesitate to call this lovely condo your home while staying in Puerto Vallarta.

Fantastic second stay at this beautiful place.

  • 5 of 5

April this year I spent a wonderful vacation for a second time at the Casa Olas del Mar in Peurto Vallarta. It was all that I remembered from my last stay there. This time I stayed in a downstairs one bedroom, two bath accommodation where I enjoyed total relaxation in this beauty spot in Mexico. The location is right on a gorgeous beach where it is safe and fun to swim and soak up the sun. The rooms are very clean and so well appointed that you can view the ocean from all angles. Sitting on the balcony in the evening is a perfect way to reflect as you watch the sun setting over the ocean - awesome!

As well as being on the beach, the location is close to local shopping where it was a pleasure to experience and shop for local merchandise. It is a short walk from the famous Malecon boardwalk where you have families who are out strolling and enjoying the balmy evenings. The atmosphere is very relaxing and soothes the soul.There are numerous good restaurants where you can sip a delicious margarita and watch the colors of the world go by.

I have highly recommended Casa Olas del Mar in Puerto Vallarta to friends and family

and to anyone who reads this review.

The best place to stay in PV!

  • 5 of 5

I've put off writing this review because I wanted to keep this place a secret! We stayed for a week this year and immediately booked for longer next year. It is clean, quiet, safe, convenient to everything and right on the beach. There's a big grocery store a block away plus several good restaurants, and it's only a 5 minute walk to downtown and the Malecon. The condo is exactly as described and is kept in good condition by the housekeeper. The rental process was easy and the friendly owners were available by email to provide any assistance and answer questions before and during our stay. This is the place to stay in PV!
