First time to Puerto, Vallarta and couldn’t ask for a more beautiful place to stay than Casa Corona. All those who care for this home made our stay wonderful and stress free. We had a great time with all our friends, new and old. Thank You!!

-James & Amy - California

This was a very enjoyable stay… The house views are outstanding!

-Wanda & Ernest - Green Valley, CA

This was truly a wonderful experience. Our stay here was made so welcoming and the week went by too quickly. Carlos & Adriana are great and did a wonderful job!

-Jon & Sally - Burbank, CA

Your house and staff were amazing. The beauty and location from behind those walls is hidden paradise. Plenty of room to socialize in one big area or find a nice quiet nook to read a book. The view of the bay especially with the fireworks going was mesmerizing. We enjoyed being able to walk to the beach every day along the malecon and stumbling back home at night. You have a unique piece of property that has all the characteristics of what in my mind PVR is all about. Thanks for your hospitality.

Casa-Corona is a lush paradise hidden within a safe and quaint neighbor in Puerto Vallarta. We stayed 8 days and enjoyed being able to walk anywhere! We were there during Holy Week and enjoyed lots of Mexican cultural experiences. The casa provided us a fun place to relax, swim, sun, eat and watch sunsets every night. These accomodations are 5 star all the way!

incredible place to stay right in the very heart of the city. Gardens & private personal paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This gorgeous Villa has a very private feel, great staff, & it was clean and we all enjoyed the different spaces the villa has to offer. Each room has its own on suite bath that is private and unique, every bedroom is different, the mansion is beautifully furnished with personal artwork and handmade furniture that the owner hand picked from travels all over Mexico. We thought we were in a mansion! Oh yeah...We were! We hired the house chef to come in, they made drinks and even served us pool side, then had an awesome 7 course meal with deep fried ice cream and coconut cake that was all hand made. We played games called corn hole, shooting baskets in the pool, and played card games and even snorkeled in the pool diving for coins! We used the hot tub, and watched to see the Green Flash on the horizon as the sun set! Oh the awesome sun sets! We did not get to see that one, so we have to go back to beautiful Casa Corona. We had coffee on the roof top while listening to the wild parakeets, and birds and humming birds feed on the garden flowers! There is a resident squirrel also, I think we will name him Lieutenant! We went everywhere in the city, walked up to the cross above the villa, 225 steps is a work out but well worth the view ( watch for the native Indian art work mural on the way up or down, The view on top is Spectacular. We took the bus, the taxis everywhere, watched the locals make Palm items on the street for Palm Sunday near the church. We fed the pigeons in the Zocolo (town center). Took photos and selfies along the Malacon (board walk ) We even took out a panga ( small boat) fishing, snorkeling and lunch on the beach to a remote area you can only get to by boat called "Yelapa" . Other days we went to a beach club, and taxi ride out to Mismaloya beach soooo beautiful. So So fun every day our biggest decision was where we were going to eat, as there are over 300 plus great restaurants in PV. One day we took the tour to Los Veranos Zip Lines and had a great safe experience! We decided to splurge and go out to the Barrio Bistro and had another chef prepare a fabulous 7 coarse meal, I think by now i have got to go on a diet but well worth it! This vacation could not have been better and we really enjoyed the Villa. I hope in some way we are sharing a great experience that you might be able to duplicate. The owners are very accommodating so for questions, they were very easy to work with. Casa Corona the best value in PV. DVL

Casa Corona- best place in PV

  • 5 of 5

Ten of us stayed in Casa Corona for a week long holiday. We were spoiled by owner, management and staff. Every bedroom has a unique charm. We really enjoyed the kitchen and the upscale pans and gorgeous dishes. The living room was very welcoming! The view from the roof is incredible. The pool and jaccuZZI were very refreshing and the grounds and house are kept impeccably clean. Do yourself a favor and contact Dale to rent this villa.

Amazing place to stay - downtown PV!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 10 of us were visiting PV for a wedding, and we stayed at Casa Corona for 5 nights. The house was amazing, and perfectly accommodated all of us. There was more than enough space, and we had such a great time laying by the pool each day. Casa Corona could not be in a better location - right downtown, 3 blocks from the beach. It made it very easy to go grab food/drinks and then come back without having to worry about taking cabs anywhere. Emma checked us in when we arrived, and greeted us with beer and chips & guac. She gave us a tour of the whole house, and made the check-in/check-out experience great! We had Chef Jonathan cook dinner for us on our last night, and it was fabulous! I would definitely recommend having him cook a meal! If I were to come back to PV, I would definitely love to stay at Casa Corona again - we had a great time!

Property alright, but rental owner dishonest

  • 1 of 5

My wife and I decided to take a trip with some friends to Puerto Vallarta. Casa Corona was an alright place except the owner stole our security deposit claiming damages that never existed. No proof, invoice or further information was provided so that spoiled the decent time we had at the property.

P.S. Puerto Vallarta is a great beach town though, so just rent from a different place.

Owner's Response: Dear David, Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate your honesty. All feedback is important to us, we want to assure each guest has a positive experience throughout the booking process and their stay at Casa Corona. We are disappointed to hear yours was not a positive one. Regarding the Security Deposit: It is our goal to return every security deposit in full, 100% of the time. In the 8+ years we have been renting Casa Corona, less than 5 times have we had to withhold a portion of a guests security deposit. It acts as an insurance policy in the event of damages, lost/stolen items and unplanned accidents/issues. We understand that accidents happen. We hope guests will be respectful and responsible, we do not wish for destruction or carelessness on the property. In the rare instance that it does occur, guests will be held accountable. The security deposit policy is in place to account for unforeseen accidents and damages and we make a strong effort to clearly explain this throughout the reservation process. We have made many efforts to keep open communication with you and provide you with as much information as possible. If you have not received the communications and information you have requested, we sincerely apologize. We will send the information to you again directly in a private email. Again, we apologize your experience was less than to be desired. We hope to resolve this issue and move forward. We will be in touch. Thank you

Breath taking views

  • 5 of 5

Dale; you were right! The pictures doesn't show the place Justice!!! It was amazing! Me and my family made use of the pool and Jacuzzi. I wish we could have enjoyed it more at night but we couldn't get the lights to work. The house, bedrooms, kitchen & bathrooms were just beautiful!! The location was a perfect spot very short distance from the Boardwalk. The people were very helpful and nice in Puerta Vallarta; I enjoyed every minute there! Linda, Carlos and Jonathon you were very much appreciated by our family. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend.
