Guestbook comments from the owner

This house was more than we could have dreamed! Love the sounds of the crashing waves and wale watching from the deck. Monica was an amazing chef, we never wanted to eat out. Thanks for making my bachelorette party the best ever.

The house was perfect for our group of seven over Thanksgiving. The staff was amazing, attentive, and accommodated our many needs. Their preparation and service surpassed our expectations making this a truly relaxing family vacation. Take your binoculars, every day there were breaching Manta rays and multiple schools of fish.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The staff, views, service and the villa was perfect. The staff was so accommodating and the meals where just delicious. The villa was very clean and the views where just breathtaking Full oceans from every room of the villa. It was very quiet other than the sound of the ocean. We just loved it...looking forward to returning soon.

Pictures don't do it justice

  • 3 of 5

The property is absolutely amazing and we had a great time during our stay. Erick was the BEST!! He helped us every step of the way and made the trip truly magical for all of us. Chef Temo was wonderful, always stopping what he was doing to see to my demanding 5 year olds requests for a snack. There were a few problems...1st of all, the whole entire vacation was almost ruined before we even got to the house. Apparently, addresses are not a good means of finding the property. We spent 2 1/2 hours in the taxi with 5 kids and 4 adults trying to just find the place. We even stopped at the local realty office and were informed that addresses are no good and if we had a map or written directions to the property (we did not). Apparently there are 5 different properties that have the name of Casa Nautilus. We were unable to reach anyone from the house by phone or email so we finally started knocking on doors and were lucky enough to find someone at home that suggested we look down around the corner and see if it was there. I thought we had been ripped off and abandoned in a foreign country and we were going to have to find a hotel to stay in. By the time we found the place, we were all stressed to the max and tired and hungry, and I was a crying mess thinking that I had gotten us into this mess. The owner was kind enough to send a couple of bottles of wine, but it took me some time to recover from the stress of it. There is a pool ledge by the waterfall that the kids liked to jump off of, but there is not a safety rail at the end of it. We quickly discovered that one wrong step and a child would be falling into the rocks several stories below. Lastly, we had to give up one of our rooms the last 2 nights due to a creature moving in at night and using the bathroom shower as a restroom. All of that aside, the property and the staff are phenomenal and we did have such a good time, despite the set-backs. The kids are still talking about how much fun it was and that they want to go back soon.

Fantastics Stay.. Couldn't have asked for more!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Nautilus was the perfect place for our group of 9! We flew into PVR for a wedding in Mismaloya and the house was fantastic! Michelle (the house coordinator based in the US) took great care of us and provided us with all of the details for the home and amenities (transportation, address, chef information, menu options, massage, etc.) before hand so that we were very comfortable and informed before we even left for Mexico.

Upon arrival we were greeted by our chef Tino, housekeeper Marie and helper / butler Eric who had margaritas and chips, salsa and guacamole waiting for us. It was such a treat! The house is beautiful! Every room has a king sized bed, private bathroom, ocean front balcony and an air conditioning unit. We often hung out on the balconies or by the pool and saw dolphins most days. The pool was beautiful and the perfect temp! Each morning Marie cleaned the house for us and Tino prepared breakfast and lunch or dinner for our group based on a menu that we discussed the previous day. We reimbursed Tino for any groceries that were purchased for our meals and they delivered all of the food and drinks that we needed (fair prices and receipts to review). Eric was wonderful and made margaritas and pina coladas during the day and arranged our taxi's, boat rides and other requests throughout our stay. We loved all of the food as well! (fresh shrimp ceviche, chile rejenos, steak, shrimp bisque, etc.). The staff blew us away!!

The house is located 3 minutes south a Mismaloya (beach with lots of water activities, sun chairs and bars available) and about 20 - 25 minutes south of Puerto Vallarta. We really enjoyed being away from the touristy, hustle-and-bustle of Puerto Vallarta (but close enough to drive to). We had friends that rented another house up the hill from us, but ocean-front is absolutely the way to go! We used the transportation to and from the airport that Michelle recommended and taxis were very fast, easy and cheap when we left the house to go to the beach, PV, the wedding, etc. There is parking if you rent a car.

Overall, we highly recommend this house for a great vacation! It's perfect for a large family or group of friends based on the layout and rooms. The price (house, food and gratuity) was a great value for the beautiful location, well kept accommodations and excellent service offered. I've already recommended Casa Nautilus to my coworker! You won't be disappointed.

Amazing views and staff

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time in PVR. Eriic our houseperson did a great job taking care of us . He scheduled transfers, boat excursions, made drinks, served food, and BEST of all spoke perfect English and translated for us to the Chef. Monica was an outstanding chef. Food was great and she was able to make grilled steak to lobster and shrimp taste exquisite!

The villa set on coast and the waves lulled us to sleep each night. Bedrooms were nice with individual bathrooms. The balconys were narrow, we did wish there were more chairs on main balcony. The pool area was lower level and not very sunny. Difficult to get out of pool also.

Lot of stairs for seniors. - 4 levels . Further out of town, 25 min and about 45 min to airport! Overall, we had a great experience!😎?
