Guestbook comments from the owner

Casa Mis Amores is a well kept secret. A quiet getaway where one can go to relax, regroup and unwind. Whether we just hung out at the pool, adventure into town, or took a snorkeling tour, we were content. Iced cold margaritas greeted us upon arrival with guacamole, salsa and quesadillas (all done by staff, Juan & Paula) Can´t wait to return to this extraordinary getaway.

Views to die for and hospitality like non other!

  • 5 of 5

From the airport we were greeted by Juan and we're driven to a local Walmart to stock up on groceries for the weekend before being shuttled to Casa de mis Amores. At the Villa we were again greeted by Paola who would be preparing our breakfast every morning. Both Juan and Paola were extremely accommodating, going out of their way to help us fill up pool inflatables, connecting us with local adventures such as horse back riding, boat rides and scuba diving. Their hospitality alone allowed us to truly feel like royalty.

From the top of the hills were magnificent views from every room. A beautiful breeze swept the entire house. There are three beautiful levels with plenty of space and drawers in each room. Showering while having a perfect view overlooking the jungle and the sea was especially delightful. Having a personal pool made our time spent at the house most memorable.

Our drive to local restaurants such as Lekliff and tequila tastings was beautiful as we wound through the jungle. Our adventures in the Malecon were just a few minutes away. Ther we came across beautiful local shops, and a nightlife that had a little bit of something for everyone!

We will definitely be revisiting Casa de mis Amores!

Amazing views and very homey

  • 5 of 5

Casa Mis Amores was amazing! The view was nice, the privacy was excellent, and we already miss the great weather! Paula and Juan were amazing and extremely kind and accommodating as well. My wife and I really enjoyed our visit and Janis was there at the airport to greet us and show us around which was very nice. It was finally warm enough on our 5th day to swim and we definitely enjoyed the beach next to one of the resorts along the way. One of the locals told us where the best area to swim with no rocks and it was amazing! Everyone that we met was very nice. I would say the best thing we did was drive to boca where we took the boat ride to Yelepa. We were able to enjoy the day there and even saw a stingray do a belly flop in the water! We already miss all of the seafood and all of the house amenities. We will definitely miss the view! The house is amazing, private but not too isolated, easy to get to from Puerto Vallarta, bathrooms on every level and extremely clean. Paula and Juan take care of the place like it is there own and this place definitely beat staying at any of the resorts or hotels. You cannot get anywhere near the accommodations that you get from this house if you rented a hotel room. You get your private pool, private home with 4 bedrooms, personal attention from paula and juan, and plenty of balconies to see the ocean and sun set from every level. We will definitely be back soon!

Four friends and I spent a week at Casa De Mis Amores and it wasnt nearly long enough! Upon our arrival to the house they were margaritas and chips/guacamole ready by the poolside, what a welcome! The house itself is impressive, with a spectacular setting on the hillside providing a view you will never tire of. The house has such emaculate details, decore, and plenty of space for a family vacation. We loved being a little removed from the major town, it provided such a relaxing, exotic setting...but the house is located so close to buses, taxis, and water taxis, it makes it easy to get around as well. So many activities just a short trip from the house! We went zip lining, snorkeling, and took a few water taxis to comb the beaches. Just walk down to the hotel Barcelo and have a water taxi take you to Las Gelemas beach, its a must! Juan and Paula are the house caretakers, and they are wonderful! coming every morining to clean up and prepare breakfast, they were so nice and helpful with any questions we had. Since returning home, all we have been talking about is when we can go back!

Casa Mis Amores is nesteld in the hills of Mismaloya, overlooking pristine Banderas Bay, one of the more exclusive areas of Puerto Vallarta. Stunning panoramic views of the ocean and jungle entice the soul. Bird watching(at times whale watching)can both be done from any patio or terrace at Casa Mis Amores!!! Watch flocks of chattering green birds fly by at any time of the day! Hear the 'big cats' from the Mismalya zoo in the afternoon to add the real jungle flavor to your trip. The zoo is within walking distance. Tequila tasting, horseback riding, snokeling, beach activities, boating, jet skiing, whale watching, surfing, water taxis, boating tours, beach restaurants, massage, jungle canopy and zipline tours, atv rentals, hiking, are all within walking distance or a short taxi ride from the house. Mini marts are closeby in Mismaloya. Catch the bus down the hill for a short ride to downtown Puerto Vallarta for about fifty cents. Taxis are only a phone call away, or a walk down the hill. An ATM is located near the Barcelo Hotel down the hill. Movies, grocery stores, clothing mall, flea market, discotecs, manicurists, hairdressers, bars, restaurants, airport, bus station, harbor, hospitals are all found in downtown Puerto Vallarta, about 10 minutes (15 minutes for bus) or so from Mismaloya. The airport is 30 minutes away or 45 with traffic. The Botanical Gardens can be visited by catching a bus down the hill. It is located about 20 minutes further south. At the end of our street you'll find the set of the film 'Night of the Iguana' (starring Richard Burton). Take a walk, ride a horse, or take a cab to the movie set 'The Predator'(Arnold Scwarzenegger) just past Mismaloya town, in the jungle. You'll end up at El Eden where they have a swimming hole, waterfall and restaurant. Tie up your horse, go for a swim, then grab a beer and some nachos! When you get back to the house take a shower over looking the ocean. If you'd like, we have a chef that can cook some of the best authentic Mexican cuisine around for a small fee. In addition to that, we can help arrange any of your tourist activities and will seek out the best prices.
