About John Guptill
My wife and I are from Portland, Maine. I first discovered Puerto Vallarta by accident at age 18 while on vacation in Mexico City when we decided to take an overnight bus trip adventure to the coast. Upon landing in Puerto Vallarta I instantly fell in love with it. Later I was fortunate enough to be able to return with my wife. We booked a condo in Zona Romantica, very near to Casa Tesoro Escondido (Hidden Gem), and never looked back. Year after year we returned, addicted to the beauty and amenities of PV. Finally in 2013 we decided to buy. We eventually discovered a great pre-construction opportunity at Bella Loma. We oversaw construction and meticulously applied years of personal experience renting in the area and previous professional experience in rentals, construction and real estate in Maine to create a wonderful home and superior rental experience. We currently visit our home in paradise two to three times a year. We hope you will enjoy Casa Tesoro Escondido as much as we do!
John Guptill purchased this Condo in 2015
Why John Guptill chose Amapas
Casa Tesoro Escondido is centrally located to the beach, restaurants, and nightlife that Puerto Vallarta is famous for, yet all the while tucked away at the terminus of a very quiet and peaceful dead end, residential street. As we purchased pre-construction we were able to design the finishes and furnishings to the highest quality.
What makes this Condo unique
Bella Loma is a smaller condo association with only 17 units. This allows for the amenities of a condo, with a bit more privacy. Typically there will only be one or two other guests on the pool deck. It has a friendly and family run feel. Built in 2015 it has modern amenities and feel but at a much greater value than other new condo developments in the area. The location is optimal, tucked away at the terminus of a dead end only 2.5 blocks to one of Vallarta's most popular beaches, Los Muertos, only one block to Olas Altas shopping and European styled cafes and bars and only minutes to restaurant row on Baslio Badillo and the boardwalk and Downtown.
Pool / Spa
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.

Another Amazing Stay!
Casa Tesoro Escondido was just as spectacular for our second visit! The condo is immaculate, amenities are top of the line, and the daily cleaning service was superb! Everything you’d need (market, bank, beach, restaurants) is a quick walk away. John is extremely helpful and always accessible for any questions. There’s nothing better than enjoying the pristine pool on the roof by day, and feeling the breeze blow through the open sliders as you watch the sun set at night. You will not regret your stay...we are already booked for 2020!
Allison, thanks so much for your second stay, rebooking your third stay and review. We are so happy you enjoyed Casa Tesoro Escondido as much as we do and welcome you back for next year. Thanks again, John
Very clean, quiet, loved the open doors
Thank you, John. Everything went very well. The condo was great, very clean, enjoyed being able to slide open the doors and get in the fresh air, sit out on the deck and read. Bed was very comfy, and the drapes blocked out all the light if I wanted to sleep in. AC units worked fine - rarely used them as there was enough breeze passing thru. Bathroom updated and everything worked great. Pool / catching rays was just up the stairs outside the condo front door. Location is great - at the end of Pilates, very near ArtVallarta for art classes and Jorge's Hideaway Fish restaurant. Jorge was great - he made me a quick dinner when I arrived very late the first night, as they had already closed and were cleaning up. I'll never forget his hospitality. Beach is right down the street and condo is close to lots of restaurants in town. My plane got delayed 4 hours on departure and John allowed me to stay in the condo till the last minute. All in all great week. Thank you, again!
Thanks again for your reservation.
We are so glad you enjoyed the condo and Puerto Vallarta as much as we do. Thanks for the mention of Jorge, he is a great man and it's a great convenient restaurant to the condo.
Thanks again for your reservation,
Beautiful Condo, Great Owner
My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Bella Loma again in 2019. The bright, clean & open-air unit was amazing. We enjoyed many hours relaxing on the wrap-around balcony. The location down a quiet street was perfect, yet only a quick walk to all the great restaurants and the beach. The owner John provided great communication throughout the booking process and stay. We highly recommend the accommodations!
How are you?
Thank you for your return stay. We are very happy that you enjoy PV and accomodations as much as we do. Please come back soon, we will hold this year’s rates for next year for returning guests booking within 30 days of their departure.
Great condo in a great location
John was excellent to deal with and always responded within a very reasonable time. The condo is located in a quiet area within minutes to the beach and resteraunts
Hi Rick, how are you? Thanks so much for your stay and review. We definitely hope you come back. Book within 30 days of your departure and we'll honor this years rates for next year.
Thanks again for your reservation!
Perfect for 2
John's condo was perfect for the two of us. It is clean, new and nice, is in a great location and has a view that is slightly more than a peekaboo view of the ocean, which makes a big difference when spending time in the condo. It has all of the amenities that we appreciate including an in-unit washer and dryer, well equipped kitchen, large shower, comfortable bed and in-room safe.
The rooftop area is open to all residents and was an excellent place to watch the sunsets and just hang out. Many in PV are private so be aware when you book.
We never heard the traffic when sleeping despite the proximity to the main road and the traffic noise during the day was not intrusive at all to us. The condo is located on a safe, quiet street with a nice mix of locals and tourists. It is a 5 minute walk to the beach and to numerous restaurants, coffee shops and bars.
The unit gets cleaned every other day which is a very nice perk. Many other condo rentals only include cleaning once per week.
Bottled water is supplied to all residents. We were told by another owner that the water for the condo is pulled directly from the river that runs along side the building so we started brushing our teeth with the bottled water. This is no issue really but something to be aware of.
This is definitely a condo we will look to book again when returning to PV. We also looked at booking unit 104 and are super glad we spent the extra money for this unit. The bottom 2 floors have obstructed views and would not have been nearly as nice to spend time in.
Hi Brian, how are you? Thanks for your stay and thank you for your review! We definitely love the view from the condo, it's so nice to sit on the balcony with a cup of coffee or a beer, depending on the time of day, and take in the water and surrounding views. Thank you for pointing out how we differ from many other units with access to the rooftop and included daily cleaning. In regards to the water, it is treated, its same source city water comes from, we are just doing on a much smaller scale. It's fine for showering, etc... but we are happy to provide the bottled water for consumption. We look forward to having you back, book within 30 days and we'll honor this year's rate. I happen to manage 104, I just picked it up, while it doesn't have the ocean views, it does have a cool hidden garden feel on the side balcony with stream view, is priced really well and does still have availability for the 2019 high season if anyone is interested! Contact me.
