About Irene Brumbaugh

A friend and I co-own Home In Heaven. We are retired ladies from Northern California.

Irene Brumbaugh purchased this condo in 2004

Why Irene Brumbaugh chose Puerto Vallarta

I have traveled to Puerto Vallarta for over twenty years - it is a very safe area where visitors are welcomed and appreciated. As soon as we walked into the condo we knew it had to be ours.....the view took our breath away and everything looked so comfortable and attractive. The staircase by the pool is a unique shortcut down to the Zona Romantica, beach, restaurants, shopping, downtown.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy the feeling of being so close to the beach, shopping, restaurants, etc combined with the serenity that our hillside location affords. We never tire of the wonderful view!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I can't begin to describe how wonderful our time was at Casa de Cielo. It was absolutely perfect for our needs. It was impeccably clean and well supplied and the view is even better than the photos made it out to be. It was also very quiet, which we definitely appreciated as well.

It really is a Home in Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved this place so much! From the minute we walked in, the gorgeous view took our breath away. We loved it so much we hardly wanted to leave even though it was a very interesting and short walk to town. Everything was so well thought out in terms of providing all the luxury items someone might need while visiting. There were so many wonderful extras from the wonderful music and book selection, to the Sharper Image CD player, DVD player, VCR and bathroom amenities! Having wireless internet was such a treat for us! The furnishings and decor are very beautiful and really set the tone for a luxurious, relaxing vacation! Having the beautiful pool area one level below the balcony is wonderful and the complex is very quiet! My family loved lighting candles every night and waiting for 9pm so we could watch the fireworks go off near the pirate ship. It is fantastic to get the view from up in the hills as well as the bay area. I just cannot say enough about this place. Simply heaven!

Reach for the Stars

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time In PV. This condo was just like the pictures show and more.

We really felt at home on our vacation. Loved the view of the ocean . In the evening a spectacular show of fireworks.

Close enough to the shopping and dining area, but far enough away for the peacefulness of PV. We even enjoyed the challenge of climbing the many stairs to the condo. Patti greeted us and helped us off. Great lady. Hope to be back.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our close friends stayed here for a week and had an amazing time. The highlight of every evening was to enjoy the incredible view while we recounted the days events. The condo itself had everything we needed and the property manager Patti was excellent. While it did take awhile to get hot water, and there wasn't quite enough if all four of us wanted to have a shower, it was really a minor issue. The corner store and beer store were literally minutes away, and restaurants were 10 minutes walking. The stairs weren't an issue for us but if you do have problems with stairs, taxis are only 50 - 60 pesos from restaurant Road. Because we stayed at the beginning of March, we did only have sun at the pool from 9:30 to 12:30 but were told by the other longer term vacationers (some really great people) that come April, the pool has full sun. Two things that would help would be more lounger chairs by the pool (only 4) and the addition of a cooking grill in the pool area. Other than that we had an amazing time and will be looking at booking here again.

Just returned from 6 weeks at Casa de Cielo and loved every minute. The condo is everything you see in the pictures and more. Was great having a washer & dryer, dishwasher and never having to haul water and ice to the condo because of the water purification system in the unit. Can't say how helpful Patty, the unit manager, was. She did everything from arrange taxi's to communicating with our cook. There are 100 steps to get from the condo to the street but very manageable. Only about a 10 minute walk to the beach or to the market for fresh fruit, vegetables and meat. Have already committed to 8 weeks in 2017.

House in the heavens

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed at this wonderful condo over the Christmas/New Years holidays. The views are incredible over Puerto Vallarta and the bay. The pictures didn't do justice to the large airy condo, and beautiful terrace. We spent many nights with a bottle of wine on the terrace overlooking the city. When you open the immense sliding glass living room windows it's like you're sitting in the air over the city and bay. The kitchen was well stocked with pans, dishes and utensils. The washer/dryer was very convenient to use. There are numerous stairs up from the highway to the condo, but my friend and I easily managed them, up to 3 times a day. The location up above Old Town PV was very convenient. I've been to Puerto Vallarta many times and this was the best condo I've stayed at by far.

Best decision we've made in a long time!

  • 5 of 5

It was our tenth time in PV but all our usual rentals were full up. We found this place and thought we'd give it a try. Best decision we've made in a long time! This condo is spacious and beautifully decorated and you can't beat the view. It has lots of little touches -- double filtered tap water, efficient air conditioning, well appointed kitchen, nice little pool. The location is also very good, 5 minutes from Los Muertos beach and just across the highway from the best restaurant in town, Bistro Teresa. Most people wouldn't want to make the climb to the condo on foot -- 200 steps, give or take -- but it's only a $3.50 cab ride. A bonus is Paty, the helpful and friendly property manager, who's just a phone call away. And best of all . . . we paid $120 a night in high season! Try to find anything close to this quality for that price -- you can't!
