Half Baths1
Space 3,600 sq. ft.
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 3 - 5 nights


About the property





I offer you my new home with modern European accents, located downtown Puerto Vallarta, close to the well known beach 'Playa Camarones' and the famous 'Malecon', Puerto Vallarta´s always busy city beach promenade.

Enjoy the solar heated pool, the outdoor Jacuzzi for 8 persons, the large sundecks, partly covered, a tranquil common lounge area in front of the pool and many more amenities my property has to offer.

My exquisite home has it all on 3,600 square feet of living space: Panoramic views, a gourmet kitchen, A/C throughout, a remote controlled indoor garage.

I offer you unlimited free phone calls inside Mexico and to the USA, Canada, Middle-South America and Europe!

50" flat TV with APPLE TV, cable TV with English channels, DVD/BluRay player, sound system with Bluetooth.


I will ask for a surcharge for more guests than 4, in total up to 10 - or, if only up to 4 guests like to use all 3 bedrooms. This will be specifies in my offer.

Please note the house is up the hill a bit which does provide a beautiful view but also means that the street is steep for one small block if walking. If you know Puerto Vallarta at all, this is pretty common as the hills are one of the attractions. For those that drive, you have your own fully secure garage for parking. Also taxis and bus fares are very cheap.

If you wish I can stock my villa with requested food and beverages upon arrival.

My Mexican professional chef, Sra. Lizendy Olaine, called Liz, cooked for many foreign guests. She can prepare breakfast/lunch/dinner on request. She is specialized in traditional Mexican dishes. Please ask for availability and prices.

I suggest you purchase trip insurance on your own to cover personal possessions and any complication you man encounter on your trip.

I would be very happy to help you. Your happiness and satisfaction is very important to me!

About Claus Pahlke-Cruz Garcia

Welcome! My name is Claus.

I came to Puerto Vallarta first in 1995 and I fell in love with this town and its people immediately. In 1999 I moved from Germany to Puerto Vallarta to live here permanently in order to work as an architect and investor.

With my partner Eduardo Cruz Garcia, born in this wonderful city, I developed several condominium and house projects. Villa Europa is our latest edition and for sure you will love it.

I will assist you with my team wherever needed. If any questions arise during your stay, please be assured that we are proactive and will do everything possible to ensure that you have a fantastic stay here in our beautiful Puerto Vallarta.

Absolutely wonderful home for our family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent six weeks in this lovely home and it was perfect for us. Spacious, quiet, and wonderfully maintained. Clean, well stocked with what we needed and our host, Claus, was always available by phone or text if we needed anything.

Great location, only a few blocks to the waterfront, and a short walk to downtown.

I would highly recommend this house for anyone wanting to experience Puerto Vallarta away from the resorts.

Great Family Experience

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time a this big home. The pictures do not give you an idea how much space you have even when you come with ten people.

We loved everything and most of us did not want to leave for excursions.

We will come back, Claus!

Great Week!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week with my mother and two young children at Villa Europa. Like another reviewer said, the photos don't do this place justice. The house is enormous - spans 5 levels and had plenty of room for all of us to spread out and have our own space. There's lots of windows and light (amazing views!), but because the house faces north it doesn't get overly exposed to sun or too hot. The house was stocked with everything we could've possibly needed to cook our own meals, do laundry, etc. Beds were very comfortable. Claus couldn't have been a nicer host. He was there to greet us and show us the house, and was very responsive when I called him with questions or issues. (e.g. the wireless went out and he had it repaired within an hour. A gecko got into the living room somehow, and he was there immediately with 2 guys to help get it out of the house.) We loved the neighborhood, which was in walking distance to a great produce/fish market, as well good restaurants. We felt very safe walking around and the neighbors were friendly. We also took advantage of its proximity to the Sheraton Hotel and paid for day passes to their pool on two occasions. Only downside was an annoying rooster lives in the neighborhood, but after a couple nights we were used to it. I would definitely recommend this place for families or groups, and look forward to another visit.

Amaizing Long Weekend in Villa Europa - Puerto Vallarta.

  • 5 of 5

We spend a long weekend (Fri - Mon) in Villa Europa at Puerto Vallarta.

It was a great experience. The house has an excellent design and it is fully equipped with anything you may need, starting from the kitchen, bedrooms, living room, etc. It has 3 terraces where you can enjoy the combined view of Vallarta town and the sea. You can also enjoy of this view while you are relaxing at the pool or the whirlpool.

Everything was clean and brand new, furniture, beds, the whole house, saying the thrut. Claus the owner is an excellent host, always willing to aid you in any matters or doubts you may have for your trip to Puerto Vallarta, and your stay at his house.

We are already planning our next trip to Puerto Vallarta, and we will be looking to stay at Villa Europa again.

Amazing Space

  • 5 of 5

This home was just amazing - plenty of room - beautifully furnished and great location - just about five blocks from the ocean and certainly within a casual walk to the Malecon. Our host, Claus, was terrific. He was there to welcome us when we arrived and for the duration of our stay (5 weeks), he was just a phone call away and responded immediately to our questions.

I have already and will continue to recommend staying at Villa Europa on your next visit to PV . We miss you already Claus!
