About Lionel Cunningham


I'm Lionel on the left of this photo, my partner of 24 years is Garin. In this photo we are returning with 'The Catch Of The Day' an 11 foot sail fish. Another exciting day of fishing in the Bay of Bandaras.

We also live in Southern Oregon where our Summer residence is located, as well as our Lake Home at Fish Lake, in the Rogue River National Forest. Also our business Cripple Creek Music Co. in Ashland, Oregon is where we retail musical instruments.

We share our homes with 2 very lovable Havanese Dogs, Sparky and Quesa Diva,(K.C.) .

Lionel Cunningham purchased this villa in 1995

Why Lionel Cunningham chose South Zone

We fell in Love with Puerto Vallarta in 1990. We love the people, the culture, but most, the Warm Sunny Winters of Mexico.

We purchased Casa Owaissa (our guest house) in 1995 and Casa de la Hoja (our second residence) in 2001. We recently remodeled both houses. We rent one or both houses when we are not using them, call for details.

What makes this villa unique

We enjoy the people and the diverse culture of Mexico. The beautiful white sand beaches, and all that the Bay of Banderas has to offer. Most of all, we love Puerto Vallarta's wonderful weather.

Awesome Stay at Casa Owaissa!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing three weeks in paradise. The layout and decor were charming and perfect for us. We loved the ocean views, gentle sea breezes, romantic ambiance, maximum privacy, sense of security, refreshing pool. The walk to town was about 10 minutes walk and always interesting. We thoroughly enjoyed this extraordinary retreat and would highly recommend Casa Owaissa to PV visitors! Lionel and Garin stopped in for a visit and gave us a number of great restaurant recommendations. PV is a developing area and there is a bit of new construction taking place. We really made the best of everything !

We are so grateful to our hosts for the beautiful way they have decorated and landscaped this vacation home. Standouts were the pool, the view and easy access to town.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Owaissa was perfect in every way! The pictures are exactly what we found when we arrived! Being rasied in Mexico and spending a lot of time in Puerto Vallarta, I was unsure about staying in a home on the hill. Was I wrong! This house is perfectly situated on the south end of town, quiet, tropical, very Mexican in a traditional, classic way. Whales every day from the balcony! The pool is perfect as well-cool, sunny, relaxing! Lots to do, easy to get to and a getaway like I have never had and I am a world traveler! Cannot wait to return to our home in Conches Chinos! Memo is super nice and accomodating-lugging our luggage up and down the stairs without issue, Norma was great as well. The only thing that could make this better is if I owned it! Gracias por todo! If I could give it six stars, I would!

Private paradise, beautiful condo with fantastic outdoor living area and pool

  • 5 of 5

The condo is everything as stated and more! It is spacious, very nicely decorated and the two outdoor living spaces are fantastic. The private swimming pool is approximately 18 x 30 feet and pristine. The lower level outdoor space is a perfect blend of sun and shade. The upper level space provides views of the ocean and beautiful sunsets. The master suite with large bathroom also has plenty of storage, comfy king bed, ceiling fan, air conditioning and TV (although we didn't use it). Both the living area and lower level bedroom (with adjacent large bathroom) have doors that open to the patio and pool area. We walked into town almost every day (15 minute walk crossing the street and heading down the cobblestone road and taking the stairs to the beach from the condo). You first encounter the Romantica Zone which is the nicest part of town with the majority of restaurants, shops, boutiques, bakeries, bars and essentially anything you need. It's an 80 Peso cab ride, if you prefer. Norma and Memo are nice and attend to their responsibilities in an inconspicuous manner, but are near if needed. Lionel made transportation recommendations and helped coordinate a poolside masseuse who was wonderful. We had an extremely relaxing vacation and look forward to our next visit.

Casa Owaissa - Spacious and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week at Casa Owaissa. We enjoyed the spaciousness of the home. It is decorated with many pieces of beautiful art work. The bedrooms were very comfortable and cool. The location was great for catching the local bus to downtown or to the various beaches in the area. We especially enjoyed Conchas Chinas Beach and enjoyed meals at La Playita almost every day of our visit. Memo and Norma were always available behind the scenes keeping the house and pool spotless. Although the walk up the steps at the end of a day of fun in the sun could be tiring, a swim in the private pool and a stunning sunset were our reward. We loved it!
