About The Owner

I 'am French, my fiance Patricia is Colombian, both of us live actually in Santa Barbara, CA. the Sister City of Puerto Vallarta. We became members of this organization after buying the house. We have a dual membership. We also belong to the Rotary club of Puerto Vallarta Sur, those non profit organizations are very involved in charitable deeds. We are doing as much of it, as we can, when we are there.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Puerto Vallarta

We bought this house for us, because we love Vallarta and especially this neighborhood, in the heart of downtown and within walking distance to everything.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We fell in love with the house the second we walked in. The beautiful spanish decor, the tile floors and all the foliage inside and out. This house has every amenity you could possibly need, except groceries, there is a supermarket within walking distance. Perfect location, few blocks from old town with all the shops and great places to eat. With the ocean and boardwalk so close you really feel your in the heart of it all. You can sit on the upstairs patio watch the ocean, lay in the sun or watch the sunset at night

The owner, Guy, always gets right back to you with emails, he even called and made sure all was ok with the house. If you want to stay in a unique awesome house, this is it, and it sleeps 10 comfortably. We are already planning our next trip and will stay here again, it truly was fabulous.

Location....Location .... Location!

  • 5 of 5

The process to check in was seamless! Thanks Fidel! Casa Romance was recommended to me by a full time residence in PV. There were 7 of us in our party, rooms were spacious too. In our case I hired a separate chef for daily meals through the owner of Arte Culinario. Wonderfully prepared meals! The staff at the house were great, you don't even know their there! The view from the upper deck was great! We loved hanging out there in the evening playing games. Although the pool is smaller...we were ALL mighty happy to have it everyday! Would book a repeat trip in a heart beat! Also, appreciated Guy calling us to check in on us and sending over a special treat from Melissa's restaurant! The coffee shop across the street gets an A+ too! Thank you!!!

Expect only wonderful things at Casa Romance Escondido!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Romance Escondido is nothing short of absolutely wonderful!! This beautiful, spacious, impeccably clean, and well appointed villa is such a welcoming place! All of the bedrooms and bathrooms are comfortable and inviting. We especially appreciated the overhead fans that are nearly everywhere making the warm temperatures more than comfortable. We made some lovely meals in the fully stocked kitchen but also took advantage of the many restaurants just steps from the front door. (Make sure to try out the newly opened restaurant next door. We watched this family work hard during the days and then eat together on the curb and sidewalk. They were so friendly we almost tried to stay an extra night just to try out their new place.) We also made climbing to the top of the hill right outside of the villa a daily ritual enjoying the view from the lookout. So, so lovely..... We miss it already!!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a family of eleven staying in this beautiful home. It is really about the location. It is really in the heart of the city and so close to everything. It was nice to walk to the boardwalk and be close to restaurants and shops. We had a beautiful view out our bedroom being on the top floor or as my granddaughter called it "The tippy top". We were greeted by Fidel and was surprised with some wine, beer and tequila. What a nice welcome. We really enjoyed having our evening meals in the garden area next to the pool and being able to sit around a table that would accommodate us all. We felt we had lots of room and privacy being in right in downtown.

Comfortable, Cozy, Spacious and Quaint Personality

  • 5 of 5

Truly a hidden gem; a very comfortable home and centrally located. Casa Romance Escondido lends itself for a wonderful relaxing vacation. The premises are well kept and the staff are incredibly generous and accommodating. Likewise the neighbors, restaurant and business owners have a way of making you feel safe and at home. We enjoyed the food at Melissa's restaurant located three doors down.

We would definitely recommend Casa Romance Escondido for any occasion!! We give it a big thumbs-up!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful location so close to everything that is happening in Puerto Vallarta. Fidel was there to meet us when we arrived and gave a very informative tour of the property. All the bedrooms are huge, comfortable and beautifully decorated to get you into the Mexican frame of mind. Really enjoyed having spices and many other staples on hand. Well appointed kitchen. That is such a thoughtful gesture on the part of the owners. Everything was kept wonderfully clean and the gardens are beautiful. Very restful sitting next to the pool in the midst of a "jungle". Many birds came to visit.

The rooftop terrace is a beautiful place to enjoy star-gazing or the view of the ocean. Very hot during the day but then you can move downstairs to the outside living space.

Will definitely recommend this property to our friends. Thank you Guy.

The malecon
Car: not necessary

Old town or (viejo Vallarta), historic part of this charming city has kept his cobblestone streets as a reminder of the past. The house is only 2 short blocks from the ocean, the Malecon and 3 blocks from the church of Guadalupe, but yet in the middle of the shopping and entertainment district. The 3rd story has a very large terrace overlooking this picturesque view, makes certainly one of the many charms of this romantic and private property. I would add, that the very large solar heated Jacuzzi/Dipping pool, in the ground floor courtyard. surrounded by an extensive variety of tropical flower and vegetation makes this comfortable and spacious property, the house for your dream vacation.

CASA ROMANCE ESCONDIDO is surrounded by approx 15

Galleries. Every Wednesday during the high season the galleries organize

a late night Art walk open house with wine, music, art and lots of fun.

The cobblestone streets are reminiscent of a small medieval European

village. This very friendly neighborhood has an incredible choice of dining

experiences from the famous 4 Star CAFÉ DES ARTISTES and one of the

top Mexican restaurants SI SENOR. CASA MELISSA is a cozy family

restaurant with great food, margaritas and is very reasonably priced. Up

the street is PIPI’S (the hot spot for American tourists) and EL PANORAMA

Other Activities: kayaking, boating, shopping, parasailing, wildlife viewing, health/beauty spa
