Experience Art, Relaxing Space, Great Views, and a Pool in the Hills of PV
About Karen Rutherford
I'm an adventurous traveler who enjoys making our home available to people who want to experience the 'real' PV.
Karen Rutherford purchased this House in 2010
Why Karen Rutherford chose Viejo Vallarta
We wanted to be integrated into a real Mexican neighborhood, rather than a resort. We bought this original adobe house in a wonderful neighborhood of El Centro. It's not for everyone as this is a living, breathing neighborhood with roosters, children, street parties, music, and corner bodegas all mixed in with great restaurants, art galleries, and hideaway bars. We spent 18+ months remodeling and rebuilding the house to be a blend of the old and new.
What makes this House unique
- Stunning views of the entire bay and city - Great neighborhood within walking distance of everything - Uniquely furnished home with antiques and art throughout - Pool and sun bathing deck - Perfect for families or friend get-togethers as there is lots of common space, yet individual privacy - Three kitchens: downstairs courtyard kitchen, main gourmet kitchen, and observation deck BBQ and dining area

Best Vacation With Friends
This villa was everything we could ask for and more. There was plenty of space, amazing rooftop views, and so many activities to choose from to do at the house.
Tomas was a fantastic help and always responded to my questions before the trip in a timely fashion. He coordinated our transportation and made sure we all had a good time. The logistics were simple and he made sure he took care of us every day.
One thing I do want to mention for future renters is that two of the beds are not inside rooms, so if you sleep there be ready with bug spray. Other than that, no complaints whatsoever. I 100% recommend this place to any family or group of friends looking for a great time in PV!
Thank you once again Karen and Tomas you guys are amazing!
Will stay again
Amazing views, great location, will stay again!!
Amazing house and location
Our family of 6 stayed at Casa Adobe for one week in July. The house is super clean and the location was perfect. There are a couple of neighborhood stores just a half a block away and also some amazing restaurants and the malecon are within walking distance. We used the swimming pool daily. The house is so big and there are so many areas to hang out in. The views are incredible. The bedrooms have AC which came in very handy on the hot, humid days. Fabi, the housekeeper does an excellent job of cleaning the house and making sure everything is just right. We had her cook an enchilada dinner for us one night and it was authentic and delicious. We arranged for Tomas, the house manager to pick us up at the airport. He picked us up and drove us to the house and showed us around. We were greeted with homemade guacamole, salsa, chips, water, cold beer and a mini massage. He even arranged a couple tours for us. He was very timely and professional. We had the best vacation and we cant wait to go back.
Patti-Thanks for the wonderful review. Please come back and visit us!
Amazing Home, staff and location!
Our family stayed at Corona Adobe for Spring Break 3/23-3/30. Booking the home was a piece of cake. Karen was easy to work with and very helpful and responsive. Tomas the house manager picked us up at the airport. He is so professional and courteous. He helped us schedule excursions, recommended restaurants, took us to Costco, cooked us a yummy Carne Asada dinner on the beautiful top floor of the home that has amazing views of the city and the ocean and he did so much more! Fabi the house cleaner came everyday and deep cleaned! This a big house and she just worked her tail off to keep the house clean and fresh for us. This was a real treat! The house is just gorgeous! Karen did not miss a thing. It is spread out so everyone has space and it’s decorated just perfect. The pool... oh the pool! It’s just perfect! We enjoyed getting in the pool with a cold beer and overlooking the amazing city and ocean. Everything was fabulous! I love the neighbors and the kiddos playing in the neighborhood. This was by far the best experience and would highly recommend anyone to stay here with families or not. Super safe area. We cannot wait to go back! Thank you to Karen, Tomas and Fabi for truly giving our family and friends an unforgettable vacation!!

The house is more beautiful in person than in the pictures! It was perfect for our large group (it slept 10 of us very comfortably), and we were able to walk everywhere. Would highly recommend getting a home cooked meal from Fabi!
Perfect Home ... Perfect Location
OMG ... first words out of our mouth as we entered. The interior flows ... accents of art and class; you are inspired to care for this home. Close to all of the attractions but removed from tourists. You are immersed in a friendly neighborhood of locals who are welcoming and friendly. Faby, the housekeeper & cook made us feel extra special!! Karen & Fred — mucho kudos, what a place you have created.
