Thivierge purchased this Villa in 2011
Why Thivierge chose South Shore Hotel Area
Casa Ladera is perhaps the only remaining small and authentically Mexican villa in Old Town Vallarta, the Zona Romantica. It is very private, with views of both the beach and the city/hillsides, and the staff is exceptional.

Casa Ladera - Puerto Vallarta
We booked to the house for 10 to us to celebrate two 40th birthdays and of course PV Pride. Our group could not have been happier with the house and location. So close to the beach and an easy walk to Old Town. Bedrooms were great and each had their own bathroom, with great water pressure! The best part of the house is the pool area! Patricia (housekeeper) and Ivan (maintenance/errands) were incredible and super sweet. Patricia made us a delicious breakfast one of the days. Communication with Mark was excellent. Very responsive and thorough. It was great being able to request in advance to have the house stocked with items prior to our arrival. We will definitely plan to stay at Casa Ladera again!
And your troop will definitely be very welcomed again. Hopefully next visit Keith and I will be in there to have a tequila tasting or two amigo.
A wonderful stay
Aside from the vicious attack chihuahua Toby (who mysteriously stops barking and becomes very cuddly if you pet him), one couldn't ask for a more perfect home to engage in some serious relaxation. Outdoor lounges abound, the beds are comfortable, the kitchen enormous and the living room is a perfect siesta location. Ceiling fans move the air around quite efficiently in the common areas, and even when the humidity hit they still remained very comfortable. And your own private heated pool? Bueno. The bedroom ac's work great, and can really cool the rooms down despite the traditional open air windows throughout.
For us, it was not a problem, but the open air windows do not afford a lot of privacy in terms of sound and/or noise, so you may want to consider that if your group is... boisterous. Other than that, there are literally no cons. One of my companions complained about the steep hill that gets you to the location and I suppose you could take a cab like she did, but I enjoy the winding streets and hills, as it's all part of the Romantic Zone's charm which this home exudes. If you want flat roads and American style accommodations, go to the resort area with the other boring people!
Finally, be sure to treat yourself to Patricia's cooking at least once, it really is delicious!
Gracias amigos. Yes, Toby does indeed take both of his responsibilities very seriously. First of course is to announce someone new's arrival, and second is to then to wag his tail furiously and play super-host. Guess that's better than the other way around. Boisterous is of course a relative term, but bedrooms are quite isolated from the terrace and common areas, so have fortunately not had any issues. Glad you all enjoyed the villa. Love to host your group again anytime. Saludos. Marc, Keith, and of course Tobito.
This was our seventh straight year at Casa Ladera, and it hasn't disappointed yet!
The open air concept and close proximity to beach create a wonderful atmosphere at Ladera.
Gracias amigo. We always look forward to hosting your group. Toby sends his best tail wags....
Best experience in Vallarta yet!
Casa Ladera was truly amazing. We were a group of 6; two couples, and two singles. The 4 bedrooms were all perfect. All had king beds, but we had the option to split them into two single beds if we wanted. All had their own en-suite bathrooms. All had their own air conditioning units. There was also a full bathroom in the common space. Daily maid service was timely and top-notch. The pool was great, and parts had sun almost all day. We spent the majority of the time outside, and there was good flow throughout the place. The photos do not do this place justice. We come to Puerto Vallarta as a group every year (6-10 people), and have always stayed at similar homes. We opted for daily meal service (two meals per day) at a cost. It was amazing and rivaled the food and service at any of the other places. The staff was very accommodating with times and meals. We also opted for pre-stocking, again at a price, which was reasonable and done exactly to our requests. Location cannot be beat. It is a short walk and back to Los Muertos Beach (Blue/Green Chairs) and the casa's entrance is essentially across the street from the Almar resort, where enjoyed a cocktail at their rooftop bar. It is also a short distance from grocery stores, pharmacy, ATM, and other standard amenities. The hosts were easy to reach and very communicative. They were great! This was our favorite place to stay in PV, and we will be back.
AMAZING!! Perfect getaway villa for family holiday!
Casa Ladera is a gorgeous property--we highly recommend it for families or groups. Four large, ensuite bathrooms w/AC, each opening onto the enormous terrace thoughtfully appointed with comfy lounges, cozy palapa-roofed tables, beautiful trees, flowering plants, and gorgeous heated pool, all overlooking Banderas Bay and the heart of Old Town PV.The interior is just as lovely; spacious and clean, with large kitchen, dining and living areas, all tastefully appointed with lovely furnishings and décor making CL both charming and elegant. Best of all, and something we've never experienced in our many years of renting in Mexico, was the personal greeting and attention given by Mark, the owner. From booking us one of the last private boat tours available, to helping arrange transportation and reservations, recommending restaurants and tours,to stocking our kitchen before our arrival and arranging for guacamole, chips and margaritas ready for us on arrival, even offering us all sweaters on the one chilly day we encountered. Villa caretakers, Patricia and Ivan provided impeccable daily cleaning service, and also cooked us several fantastic gourmet meals--not to be missed!:D Did I mention the location?! CL has the best location in Old Town/Romantic Zone PV for being steps away from the beaches, pier, shopping and restaurants--we never had to take a taxi anywhere, and it was wonderful to be within a short walk back to our oasis of a villa. Casa Ladera is a gem of a property, it's owners kind, attentive and thoughtful, and its location impossible to beat; we feel so fortunate to have discovered it! Huge thanks to Mark, Keith, Paty, Jesus and Ivan! We had the best time ever!!
Muchas gracias amigos. We of course enjoyed hosting you all enormously. Wonderful guests and from our perspective wonderful new friends as well. Hope to welcome you back soon. Marc, Keith, and of course Toby.
Located a few blocks from the center of Zona Romantica and a short walk to the beach, the villa is within minutes by foot or car from Puerto Vallarta's hundreds of restaurants, shopping, clubs, and sightseeing.
