“Imagine yourself in a world apart, an oasis of color and fragrance, trickling fountains, and candles that light your way through the courtyard. Imagine being awakened by cathedral bells and tropical birdsong. Your view upon first light is incomparable: the Pacific Ocean, framed by multicolored azaleas. This and more is Casa de la Torre.” – Dr. Terri Dobbs, University of Wisconsin - Madison

Casa de la Torre is located in El Centro, home to some of Vallarta's finest restaurants and art galleries. It is a signature property and is referenced in several guide books. The house is built of stone on many levels and has an open air Mediterranean feel with spectacular views and a secluded garden and pool area. Most everything is within walking distance.

And a complimentary continental breakfast is provided daily. Other arrangements can be made for lunches and dinners (at an additional cost), as our cook is very versatile.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mary Serphos posted on Casa de la Torre's timeline

"Casa De La Torre is an Exquisite Oasis with immaculate attention to detail. A truly luxurious, sacred, and nourishing place to call home while in Puerto Vallarta. I felt like a queen as I stood out on the tower balcony to watch the sunset over the Bay of Banderas then took a dip in the refreshing pool, and came back after a wonderful dinner only to find myself nestled among a most comfortable bed with high thread count sheets. I didn’t want to leave!"

Awsome Family Casa

  • 5 of 5

We planned our trip so the whole family could go. Our adult kids and their spouses were excited to see the casa in person, to plan day trips, and to eat great Mexican food for a solid week. When we arrived we were greeted with a full tour of our new house and margaritas for the adults and lemonada for our grand daughter.

Marta prepared great breakfasts every morning and Monse was always so helpful and took great care of our home and any of our questions. Martin was busy with landscaping and keeping the pool looking great. We had Marta make two family dinners and they were a spectacular presentation to see and even better to eat.

We loved the central location and the views were spectacular. Getting to a store was easy walking distance. We did a really fun neighborhood art tour and ate at great restuarants within walking distance. The ocean was a quick few blocks so it was easy to go for a quick salt water swim and get back. We absolutely loved the private pool and spent tons of time swimming and laughing. Also there is filtered water so we loved that.

Thank you for sharing your home with us it will be a great memory for our family to share forever.

It was a dream come true for our 50th anniversary celebration. The staff, Monci, Marta, and Martin treated us like royalty. The breakfasts were always superb. The villa was always clean and taken care of immaculately daily. Aerial was a wonderful care taker and very pleasant to be with. I certainly would highly recommend a stay there.

Stunning, wonderful location, top notch hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Kim and Debie's villa was a special, wonderful experience

High points:

*Incredible aesthetics in the architecture, artwork and design detail, scenery, and landscaping. There are many thoughtfully designed seating areas that allow you to take it all in.

*Hospitality - the housekeeper Monse, landscaper Martin and chef Marta are warm and do a wonderful job. Our host arranged for us to be met when we arrived, served us drinks and snacks, and made sure we had what we needed.

*Comfort - the beds and linens are comfortable. AC in the bedrooms works great, and there is good air flow in the main rooms.

*Location - a perfect launching place to explore the Romantic Zone. We mostly walked, but there are plenty of taxis available.

What really put this experience over the top was the support we received in hosting a large family dinner party to celebrate our anniversary. Our hosts pre-arranged for Marta and Monse to meet us for planning. Marta is a gifted chef - the food she served was outstanding. Marta, Monse and Martin went above and beyond to create festive decorations including many things to amuse the kids and made all of our guests feel welcome.

We had a great time and now have a wonderful shared family memory.

Note: I do not recommend this house for small children due to the tower stairs and other drop offs.

Absolutely amazing accommodations!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The best accommodations my family and I have ever experienced. The castle is incredible. Monse (care taker) Martin (ground keeper) Marta (Chef) and Ariel (property manager) were all very kind and helpful to us. The experience we had would have cost $5000-10,000 a night in the US. Do yourself a favor and experience this amazing home for yourself. We will be back. Thanks for everything Monse!!
