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.

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.

What a wonderful experience in Mexxico
I wanted to try something different from the typical overly large resort and experience more interaction with the real people. Casa Chile exceeded all my expectations. High quality air conditioning is a must for me and I was not disappointed. We had two bedrooms with king size beds, impeccably decorated with a direct view of the ocean and fabulous sunsets. Two and a half baths fully equipped with all first class supplies and towels. The free WIFI is important to me so I could stay in touch with my tennis league. Taxis are ridiculously inexpensive, so I did not have to rent a car. 50 pesos ($3 US) paid for most rides. I love meeting people and trying out my broken Spanish at every opportunity. The Mexican people were super nice and most of them could handle English. Fellow tourists abounded with Canadians and Americans and a couple Germans and French. Casa Chile is perfect for all kinds of people. Many of them
Roger anticipated every possible need. His system of providing keyed locks for every single entryway gives total security.
The beach is a very short four block walk. You can go deep sea fishing, parasailing, play beach volleyball, rent a big umbrella, listen to the music, soak up some rays, get a foot massage, order drinks, build sandcastles or just take a nap. The Botannical Gardens are a nice side trip, with beautiful flowers and a restaurant where a soothing breeze made me never want to leave. Joe/Jacks has the best seafood. Captain Don's features live music and dancing every Tuesday.
I can hardly wait to go back to Casa Chile.
Lovely, well maintained , comfortable, convenient
Just as the pictures show, our casa was absolutely perfect. Actually the pictures do not do it justice. The place is immaculate, the bedrooms are beautifully decorated and comfortable and the view is outstanding. Roger our host is always trying to improve on perfection. This was our second time staying at Casa Chile and it has truly become our home away from home. We are already counting down to our next year's stay. Roger is an extremely attentive host and will always do his best to accommodate your needs. A wonderful surprise this year was a delicious dinner prepared onsite in Roger's gorgeous courtyard by a wonderful chef. The dinner was outstanding and so fresh and we all felt so pampered and special. The location of the Casa is perfect. It's 3 blocks up from the ocean, a 5 or so minute walk to the Malecon and in the neighbourhood itself there are many places to eat. Great restaurants as well as great street eateries. There is fabulous fresh food market nearby, a grocery store and stores for just about every need. We would very highly recommend Casa Chile to anyone. You won't be disappointed.
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
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
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.
Traditional Mexican neighborhood in the heart of the historic old town city. Convenient location for transportation, shopping, dinning and a 3 min. walk to the beach and on the beach bars/food. GLBT
