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 Puerto Vallarta

We fell in Love with Puerto Vallarta in 1990. We love the people, the cultured, but mostly 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 remodeled both houses in 2005. 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 Vallartas wonderful weather.

Incredible Vacation Stay

  • 5 of 5

Can't imagine a better place to enjoy a stay in old Puerto Vallarta. Situated in Conchas Chinas it feels secluded and private and yet is only a walk or short taxi ride to old town. The view, the private pool, the rooms, the lush greenery and beautiful flowers, make this home feel like your own special oasis. The photos, accurate as they are, can't convey just how lovely it is and the delicious feel of this home. Casa Owaissa has every convenience and the wonderful caretakers, Norma and Memo, keep the house, the grounds, and the pool in pristine order. It was so good meeting you, Lionel and Garin. Thank you for a truly memorable vacation in your beautiful and restful casa!!

Amazing house and views

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible vacation at Casa Owaissa: amazing views, great pool, fantastic house in true mexican/spanish style, pampered by Norma and Memo for cleaning the house, pool and outside, close proximity (5 min walking) to Conchas Chinas beaches (some of the best in the area), walking distance to town and bus stop (to town or southern beaches) 1 min away.

We would definitely stay here again next time in Puerto Vallarta.

A Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Casa Owaissa was fantastic. In terms of layout, amenities, and location, we couldn’t have had a better introduction to Puerto Vallarta. The house is ideally situated, offering both seclusion and access to town. Convenient to lots of great restaurants and the sights of PV, the house is close to the Zona Romantica via a ten to fifteen-minute stroll down a winding cobble-street lane that is well–lit in the evening. For those who didn’t feel up to walking, we found it very easy to hail a taxi just a few yards down from the entrance to the home, and there was regular (and very cheap!) bus service from the entrance to the neighborhood just a few steps further away. On days when we wanted to enjoy a more relaxing and quiet day, the house provided perfect spaces to spend time together as a group, as well as private spaces for solitude, all with spectacular views of the bay—and the private pool to cool off in. The kitchen is very well appointed, so we were able to enjoy the occasional dinner, brunch, or lunch in. The staff was very attentive and helpful. We highly recommend the house and look forward to the chance to return!

Wonderful villa.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Casa Owaissa January 2016. It is a lovely villa in the Conchas Chinas area. The villa was very safe, clean, and well maintained. Lionel the owner was a pleasure to work with. The staff Norma and Memo were wonderful. They were there every day except Sunday to clean and take care of all our needs. Guests from the villa above do walk past to use the staircase to and from their villa which made our villa not as private as we would have liked, but besides the guests above it is quiet and private. We would recommend this property and would stay again... but since we like total privacy we would choose to stay in the villa above next time if available.

Delightful, Tropical Lush Setting... Very Private and Clean. Pictures are accurate but much more beautiful in person... The pool was such a private welcomed refreshment! Casa Owaissa leaves you with the true experience of PV! Great place for honeymooners or romantic getaway. Conchas China is the most beautiful neighborhood in PV. Location is much closer to downtown than what appears on the map. The staff Norma & Memo are on site to maintain and assure tidiness...

If I had any negative comments... it would only be that we could not return with our elderly travelers due to several stairs entering up to the property. I loved the fact that A/C was in the bedrooms. A door to block AC in the lower corridor that included the downstairs restroom would have been an extra bonus while trying to get ready! Thank you Lionel for sharing this wonderful piece of PARADISE for so many to enjoy!

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We just couldn't have been happier with our stay at Casa Owaissa! This property is beautiful, and so lovingly taken care of. The staff, Memo and Norma, are so kind, helpful, and very respectful of the guests. We were additionally blessed to have the owners of the Casa, Lionel and Garin, on the property during the week we stayed. Two very generous, and kind souls, you'd be lucky to meet. The walk into town is very easy, and the view from the Casa is amazing! Having your own pool is super cool! Whether you are looking for a personal oasis, or a place for your entire family to be together, this is the place! I am so looking forward to our next vacation here. Don't think twice about booking if you see the space on the calendar that you want, because it won't be there for long. We actually pushed our vacation date out two weeks, because we really wanted to stay here, and we are so glad we did. I just can't recommend this place enough. I LOVE IT!
