Centro Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 5 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 5.5 Baths (Sleeps 8 comfortably)

“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.

This 5 bedroom, 5 1/2 bath house has 3 “master suites” but can accommodate 8 people comfortably. Each bedroom has an in suite bathroom. There is a full-time maid and houseman. And a complimentary full 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!"

A wonderful castle retreat!

  • 5 of 5

As one who heavily relies on reviews when booking, I must say that the reviews for this fabulous listing are spot on. I couldn't have been happier with my stay at Casa De La Torre. There were five of us who stayed here for four nights. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The house is fantastic for hosting dinner parties, lazying the day away taking in the views and relaxing by the pool, or as serving as a central hub for exploring the surrounding old town. The staff was extremely courteous, welcoming, and accommodating. An added benefit to staying here is that one of the most renowned restaurants, Cafe les Artistes, is merely steps away. Would not hesitate in recommending this listing and looking forward to booking this beautiful home again in the near future.

We stayed in March for my sister's bachelorette party, and the house was absolutely amazing. I hired Montsi to make us breakfast each morning as well as dinner one of the nights and she was fabulous, food was to die for. House is so spacious, could not be at a better location, walking distance from downtown area. All the images online do no justice to when you see the house in person, it is truly beautiful. All the girls had a wonderful time, and we all plan to come back in the future!

Historic Puerto Vallarta

  • 5 of 5

I was enchanted. The beauty of this home is complete in every way and evocative of a luxurious, tranquil oasis.Comfort comfort comfort.Lovingly cared for by a discrete professional staff and in the perfect location to enjoy all the charm that Old Puerto Vallarta has to offer…All I had to do was go out the door to be in a walkers paradise thru the cobblestone streets.

My recommended daily routine:

Wake up to birdsong and a soft breeze from the ocean…Stand on the balcony and take in the view over the rooftops and marvel .Breakfast by the pool or in a small outdoor hillside cafe, a long walk exploring neighborhoods of adobe, red tile, bougainvillea and balconies, (maybe a stop at the local tortilla factory, ) long lunch at a beach cafe drinking a cold beer & watching the kids play in the surf, home for a swim and a nap, walk to dinner (enough charming restaurants with great food so you never have to eat at the same place twice) and then along the Malecon to take in the nightly music, entertainment and people watching. What's not to love ? I would recommend this house highly for a memorable vacation.

Wow, what a place!

  • 5 of 5

I was completely blown away at the design of Casa De La Torre. I was not prepared for the interaction of interior/exterior space. As a former architect it is a delight to experience the wonderful details everywhere. It is everything the listing describes and more. Staying at Casa De La Torre allows one to experience old Mexico then retreating to another world inside the Villa walls. It is spotless, and and maintained that way daily. I would highly recommend this villa to all my friends and family. It is located within walking distance of major city amenities, and activities which is a big plus. So many local restaurants to explore. The weekend local outdoor market was a real treat.

5 Star Accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

Old Town Puerto Vallarta is a traveler's paradise: with colorful local culture, delicious fresh food on every corner, an elegant cathedral just down the street, and the lively Malecon providing a wonderful place to stroll along the azure ocean. Casa de la Torre is an oasis right in the heart of the action. Extremely well-cared for, lovingly tended by the housekeeper and gardener, the soothing sounds of fountains and the alluring stone terraces surrounded by graceful hanging gardens welcome you home after every excursion. One of the most magical, artful residences at which we have ever stayed. Definitely a 5 Star experience!

An absolute gem.

  • 5 of 5

If you get a chance to stay there, do. It is spectacular in an approachable way. Our family of four adults felt totally at home.

The Casa is in the Old Town and three short blocks from the Malecón with world class bronze sculptures that any great city would be proud to have.

The listing description was accurate about everything. The property was clean and well-maintained, good service was provided. Our son and his wife were with us and also enjoyed everything. There was plenty of room for us to have privacy or be together. Our son is an excellent cook and used the kitchen one day to fix a meal.

We enjoyed the breakfasts provided by the staff, and the near-by restaurants: Trio (5 blocks south), Si Senior (right next door), Cafe des Artistes (a block north and one of the top 5 restaurants in all Mexico).

We *really* appreciated the private swimming pool.
