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.

Lovely private villa in the hills.

  • 4 of 5

I have scatters thoughts so I will do my best. This is a fantastic house for two couples. It is a short jaunt to the beach/restaurants and a very quick cab ride back. The stairs up from the gate are a little daunting if you have a disability. The stairs are shared with the owners, but they come in a different entrance and are rarely seen. The pool was very clear and DEEP. You can only touch from the far side, the rest of the time you are treading water. They provide floaties which are great for lounging in the pool. The pool area gets sun all day and there is an umbrella for shade. The view from the top balcony is better than at the pool, but both provide a great view of sunsets on the bay which are fantastic. There is air conditioning in the bedrooms which is nice at night. The staff Meme and Norma are very nice and helpful. This was a great vacation with no downsides to mention. We loved it.

Spectacular stay in PV

  • 5 of 5

Three girlfriends and I just returned from a spectacular week in PV, due in part to the incredible accommodations at Casa Owaissa. The pictures cannot fully portray the lovely home, terrific views and cleanliness of this 2 bdrm, 2 bath home. The 1/2 mile distance from town was a positive thing for us, as it ensured a quiet stay. There are quite a number of stairs up to this home, but it's well worth it. We were so very pleased with all aspects and would easily return. The pool and deck are lovely in every way. Taxi fares into oldtown are only $3 and the local bus (every 10 min or so) was 40 cents. Norma and Memo were great onsite hosts and kept the place spotless daily. I'd highly recommend this VRBO property, after 25 years of visiting PV !!! If you find availability, don't hesitate to book this rental. Kind beds were very comfortable!

A Hidden Gem!

  • 5 of 5

I’ve been home from Puerto Vallarta for over a week and I still find myself thinking about the beautiful view from the terrace. This was my second time staying at Casa Owaissa. The last time was eighteen months ago and it is still the best value around. I always enjoy the short walk to downtown along the cobblestone road. The Old Town Farmers Market on Saturday and the Vallarta Art Walk on Wednesday were both highlights this trip. Norma and Memo were wonderful as usual. They keep the Casa spotless and are both so kind, patient and helpful. There was a problem with the Internet in the area and Norma worked daily to continually report the issue to get it fixed. The other visitors from Tacoma and British Columbia staying at the adjacent villa were friendly but never obtrusive. Staying at the Casa is private and quiet. I would highly recommend Casa Owaissa to travelers looking to stay away from the bustle of the Hotel Zone. Thank you for another wonderful vacation. I’m looking forward to my next visit!

David and I spent most of the time at the villa. It was quiet and allowed us to have one of the most relaxing vacations ever.we went to town everyday but the villa was always calling us back. It was beautifully done and so very comfortable. The views were fantastic. Everything was ready for us and Norma and Memo were silently present. Thanks to all for a great stay! Ann and David

Great setup for two couples

  • 5 of 5

Just got home. Had a great time in PV. Lovely house. Would highly recommend. The house has wonderful view. The bedrooms are completely separate so it is a great setup for two couples. We enjoyed the pool. Nice and quiet at night. Very easy to catch a taxi.
