About Roger McGee

Grew up in Bay Area in California. Primary career was a hairstylist. Have been involved in real estate throughout my life and enjoy building/renovating properties. Always dreamed of retiring in a beautiful ocean tourist area like Puerto Vallarta and enjoy providing affordable lodging with tremendous views of the beautiful city.

Roger McGee purchased this house in 2011

Why Roger McGee chose Colonia 5 de Diciembre

I have been coming to Puerto Vallarta for 19 years, so thought I would retire here. Good choice! :)

What makes this house unique

My partner of 12 years and I loved Casa Chile the minute we saw it. It is in traditional Mexican style in a friendly neighbor and we don't need a car because everything we need is in walking, bus or taxi distance. It's very safe here, lots of tourists, mostly American, Mexican and Canadian whom with we have made many lasting friendships.

Great Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This place is extremely clean with a great view. You can see the ocean from the balcony or your bedroom. Roger is a great host and is very helpful. This place is walkable to town so the location is perfect. My wife and I will definitely be booking this condo again in the future!

Wonderful, relaxing and friendly

  • 4 of 5

Our apartment was spacious and overlooked the bay. The kitchen/dining room/living room is an open floor plan that allows in the maximum of light and breeze, loaded with fine details from the columns to the glasses. I've never stayed in an apartment with so much indoor/outdoor space - loved it. The price for this view is that there are a lot of stairs. Roger is a fantastic host, always ready to help (he would have even carried our bags if I didn't stop him). Not Old Town and not the high-rise hotel zone, the neighborhood is convenient to the beach and many fine restaurants. It's a bit removed from the party bars (a plus in our case). We would definitely return.

We had the most wonderful stay with Roger. He made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. His Casa is lovely and has everything you need. It's fabulously decorated. Very Mexican and very comfortable. It's a short walk to the beach and a lovely walk to the Malecon and shopping and restaurants and everything. We would not hesitate or a moment to refer anyone to stay with Roger. It was our best trip to Puerto Vallarta in all the years we have been coming.

Enjoyed everything about our 21 day stay...exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

The casa was very clean, well appointed, excellent location to beach, fabulous Malacon, numerous restaurants and shops, all within short walking distances. The local buses were convenient for travelling further if you want to explore. The owner was very friendly and helpful and answered our many queries for getting about. We felt very safe walking around during the day and after dark. We highly recommend this casa.

This property is amazing and beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

You approach from old cobble streets through authentic Mexico only minutes to the beach and all ammenities. You don't expect the place to be as beautiful as it is inside. Roger made the trip easy for us with tips to help out. I cannot say enough about this place it was fantastic. We loved the atmosphere and the view was great too.

My wife and I and our two teenage boys stayed a week at Casa Chile and had a fantastic experience. The open air patio and 2 bedrooms were absolutely perfect for us. Roger was a very gracious and attentive host. There is a very nice beach straight down the hill, just 3 1/2 blocks and many restaurants and conveniences within a short walk including the large supermarket. We will absolutely be back and have already been recommending Casa Chile to our friends and family. Thank you Roger!
