Casa Corona is the most beautiful place ever! The views are amazing, wonderful temperature, I felt safe and like I was very close to home. This is the best experience of my life. Casa Corona is a very beautiful place. There are no words to describe the wonderful time I had and how beautiful it is here. Puerto Vallarta is beautiful! Everyone is friendly and funny. Many adventures to do here, but can’t do it all at once. Thank you so much Dale for having us.

Xoxo -The Peeps at Photojojo

(And oh yeah… everyone who stays here should hire Jonathon and Manny to cook for them (ask Debbie) because they rock and will make you delicious meals and desserts (ask for the chocolate and brownie thing! So good!)

Dale, you have an amazing place. Thank you for letting my family stay in your home. Could not have asked for my first trip to Mexico be any better. Hope to be back soon.

Dale, Awesome place! Best location, thanks for allowing us to enjoy your casa!

- Anonymous

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- 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.

Never seen or been anywhere like it

  • 5 of 5

WOW, Dale! Case Corona is truly a jem, and luckily slightly hidden;-) Thank you for having us in your beautiful home!

I just landed back at JFK (in NYC) and the first thing I need to do is share how amazing of a trip we just had! The location is ideal whether you're spending your day with Vallarta Adventures, hanging out in the Romantic District or want to walk around the beach/boardwalk; you won't find a more central (financially/touristically ideal) location.

Once inside; the home is at times even more breathtaking than many places of the jaw dropping spectacles within Vallarta itself! Though we were active everyday, there was always the excitement of when we would get back home to swim, cook, play cornhole, or relax on the roof just to name a few of the MILLION things I love about Casa Corona. Dale created a paradise that neither me nor my group were anywhere near ready to leave haha but I guess such are the disappointments of life.

On a side note.. we had a medical situation in the middle of the night and the local doctor and neighbors were quick to assist (heard loud noises and came to check on us, applied simple aid, called ambulance, calmed us down) as well as being extremely personable the entire trip. There were concerns from some of the ladies about our safety because we were staying off of the resorts but I can tell you that all of us felt extremely safe/protected the entire time and in our only time of need, we were awestruck by the locals concern and speed in helping to ameliorate our situation :-)

Bring you kids! bring your teenagers! bring your friends (we were a group of 27-34 yr olds)! bring your parents! with CasaCorona as a jump off point; we found there to be FAR more fun to be had than time to do it in; thanks again Dale and the local all star team of Emma, Linda, and Carlos! we surely plan on returning :-)


1. take the Taco Tour with Alex - the history and local insight is only matched by the quality of the tacos! wear walking shoes though, this is not for the elderly or picky eaters

2. Go to the Playa de los Muertos - bring Bocce Ball (provided at house), the locals love it and is a great way to meet both locals and foreigners on the beach! I would also recommend the "dangerous" version of the banana boat, make sure to tell him that you want to get bucked a bit ;-)

3. 2X1 drink specials are everywhere - stop by Vacitas or Senor Frogs by the house to grab a daytime margarita to go, they're huge!

Owner's Response: Wow, we really appreciate your kind words, are you a writer! You articulated this very well and we would like to use it on Face book. We will take your comments serious and try a couple of new places. Thanks for these suggestions. We strive to make everyone's stay unforgettable. We hope to see you again next year. Contact me for early booking and we will offer you a discount! Thank you from the Casa-Corona team. Dale

Amazing Property - Will be Back!!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Corona was perfect! Couldn't have asked for more. I stayed there for a week with 11 of my closest friends and there was plenty of space, with each couple having their own room and bathroom, and 2 additional pool bathrooms! The pool/jacuzzi were a huge hit! The open air layout on the second floor was ideal. The sound system was top notch. The outdoor kitchen was used many nights and had everything we needed. The rooftop was huge and great for viewing nightly fireworks. The house cleaner Linda was so nice and thorough, Carlos was awesome taking care of the pools/gardens, Emma was spot-on as the house manager with the check-in/check-out process, Jonathan and Maria came to cater private dinners at the Casa and cooked an amazing meal at a great price, Dale was so easy to work with and designed an amazing property. The location was ideal, 2 blocks to the beach and the bars/restaurants/clubs/shopping. We will all be back, probably multiple times, thank Dale and Team!
