About The Owner

I 'am French, my fiance Patricia is Colombian, both of us live actually in Santa Barbara, CA. the Sister City of Puerto Vallarta. We became members of this organization after buying the house. We have a dual membership. We also belong to the Rotary club of Puerto Vallarta Sur, those non profit organizations are very involved in charitable deeds. We are doing as much of it, as we can, when we are there.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Puerto Vallarta

We bought this house for us, because we love Vallarta and especially this neighborhood, in the heart of downtown and within walking distance to everything.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We fell in love with the house the second we walked in. The beautiful spanish decor, the tile floors and all the foliage inside and out. This house has every amenity you could possibly need, except groceries, there is a supermarket within walking distance. Perfect location, few blocks from old town with all the shops and great places to eat. With the ocean and boardwalk so close you really feel your in the heart of it all. You can sit on the upstairs patio watch the ocean, lay in the sun or watch the sunset at night

The owner, Guy, always gets right back to you with emails, he even called and made sure all was ok with the house. If you want to stay in a unique awesome house, this is it, and it sleeps 10 comfortably. We are already planning our next trip and will stay here again, it truly was fabulous.

Comfortable, Cozy, Spacious and Quaint Personality

  • 5 of 5

Truly a hidden gem; a very comfortable home and centrally located. Casa Romance Escondido lends itself for a wonderful relaxing vacation. The premises are well kept and the staff are incredibly generous and accommodating. Likewise the neighbors, restaurant and business owners have a way of making you feel safe and at home. We enjoyed the food at Melissa's restaurant located three doors down.

We would definitely recommend Casa Romance Escondido for any occasion!! We give it a big thumbs-up!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful location so close to everything that is happening in Puerto Vallarta. Fidel was there to meet us when we arrived and gave a very informative tour of the property. All the bedrooms are huge, comfortable and beautifully decorated to get you into the Mexican frame of mind. Really enjoyed having spices and many other staples on hand. Well appointed kitchen. That is such a thoughtful gesture on the part of the owners. Everything was kept wonderfully clean and the gardens are beautiful. Very restful sitting next to the pool in the midst of a "jungle". Many birds came to visit.

The rooftop terrace is a beautiful place to enjoy star-gazing or the view of the ocean. Very hot during the day but then you can move downstairs to the outside living space.

Will definitely recommend this property to our friends. Thank you Guy.

Great house Great location

  • 5 of 5

Our group enjoyed staying at Casa Romance very much.The location is superb for enjoying all PV

has to offer,from hundreds of dining choices,beaches,shows,casinos,shopping and various site

seeing tours.The house is large and has lots of great spaces to enjoy as a group,but is also laid

out nicely for a bit of privacy when needed.We enjoyed the lounge pool, comfy beds,large upper

balcony,laundry facilities and the ability to stay connected to loved ones at home through wifi

and free computer phone.There is a liquor store, 3 oxxo's and grocery store (Ley's) all within walking

distance of the house.Another added bonus is a restaurant called Melissa's (Delicious) next door

and coffee house, Cafe Josefa across the street. Both ran by the wonderful Hernadez family,

some of the nicest people you will ever meet.The house manager Fidel was great,he checked in

often to make sure all was running well at the house.He arranged a fishing trip for our group,

was helpful with questions and gave many fine recommendations.The maid was sweet and

helped keep everything neat and tidy. I would like to end with a BIG Thank you to Guy and Patricia

for allowing us use of your beautiful home in paradise.We will definitely be back. Robert and Susan Menster

Great family vacation

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 9 stayed at this very nice home. We had plenty of room, enjoyed the patio, and liked that the home was a short walk to downtown. The property was well maintained and the manager was very helpful. The only complaint we had was the jacuzzi needed an internal heating system, the water was shaded so stayed cool.

Offended

  • 3 of 5

After we returned to Canada and received our damage deposit, the owners accused us of taking "two bottles of wine" and "ripping a lounge chair" , as well as having malicious. Our group found this to be offensive, as we had no malicious intent, nor did we intend on any sort of theft/petty breakage, of which I am sure the $2700 USD stay would more than cover for minor incidents, which one would likely expect with general repair of everyday life. The stay at the Villa was adequate, not phenomenal, in regard to these accusations of malice, I would NOT RECOMMEND this villa.

Car: not necessary

Old town or (viejo Vallarta), historic part of this charming city has kept his cobblestone streets as a reminder of the past. The house is only 2 short blocks from the ocean, the Malecon and 3 blocks from the church of Guadalupe, but yet in the middle of the shopping and entertainment district. The 3rd story has a very large terrace overlooking this picturesque view, makes certainly one of the many charms of this romantic and private property. I would add, that the very large solar heated Jacuzzi/Dipping pool, in the ground floor courtyard. surrounded by an extensive variety of tropical flower and vegetation makes this comfortable and spacious property, the house for your dream vacation.

CASA ROMANCE ESCONDIDO is surrounded by approx 15

Galleries. Every Wednesday during the high season the galleries organize

a late night Art walk open house with wine, music, art and lots of fun.

The cobblestone streets are reminiscent of a small medieval European

village. This very friendly neighborhood has an incredible choice of dining

experiences from the famous 4 Star CAFÉ DES ARTISTES and one of the

top Mexican restaurants SI SENOR. CASA MELISSA is a cozy family

restaurant with great food, margaritas and is very reasonably priced. Up

the street is PIPI’S (the hot spot for American tourists) and EL PANORAMA

Other Activities: kayaking, boating, shopping, parasailing, wildlife viewing, health/beauty spa
