About Guy De Mangeon

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.

Guy De Mangeon purchased this house in 2009

Why Guy De Mangeon chose Cerro

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.

Beautiful home, pictures don't do it justice

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous home. Just returned from our stay there and it was magical. 2 1/2 blocks to the heart of the Malecon and nice beaches. A ten minute walk to old town. Cafe des Artistes, one if the top restaurants in Mexico, only 25 feet away. Which is also a handy refernce point to tell cab drivers, easier than the address. I can't say enough great things about the house and Guy himself who was also terrific. Spent tons of time on the rooftop terrace overlooking Banderas Bay sipping my morning coffee or a glass of wine at night.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The location of this property is outstanding when you want to be in old Puerto Vallarta. Fidel is fantastic to work with. However, the property is old, the furniture in the living room is old and probably should be replaced; it was very uncomfortable to sit in this room for any length of time. The house comes with everything you need to cook. Rooms are air conditioned and each room has TV with many channels. The balcony rooms have a lovely deck that faces the ocean. The washer and dryer are new and very nice!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We loved your house ! Everyone was wonderful! Melissa and her family was a true blessing! Anytime we asked for something they came through with it. Piñata at 10 pm! Diner for 20 with the best most personal service! Fidel was most helpful also, we did not need him to much since we were here for a wedding. Again we loved our vacation, thank you again!

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)

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