Ahhh, the beauty of it all. 07/26/2014

VRBO Bear stayed here:


Casa Do Re Mi exceeded all expectations. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left all we could think was WOW! As soon as you enter Casa Do Re Mi you are faced with the most amazing view of the Bay of Banderas. The experience only gets better as a smiling Ivan promptly supplies the most delicious Margaritas. Ivan then invites you to sit down for a welcome dinner. The meal, prepared by Chayo, is, as every meal that followed, absolutely delicious.

On the following days Ivan helped arrange activities, supplied refreshments and kept the garden and pool tidy. Chayo prepared a succulent breakfast and dinner that we picked the day before. Sarah kept the house spotlessly clean. They made sure at every turn that this bear family had the best time possible.

Casa Do Re Mi is built in the style of a Mexican hacienda. The attention to detail in its decoration and upkeep is remarkable. The finely furnished indoors and outdoors provide everything you need to relax and enjoy the all-surrounding spectacular ocean views. Everything is beautifully maintained.

That attention to detail is also displayed by Barb the owner with her guests. We had a conversation prior to departure on the phone to go over Casa Do Re Mi. She asked us which beverages we’d like to be there for our arrival. She called us to check that everything was going well. In short, she cares about her guests having an unforgettable experience.

Across the street from the villa we relaxed and swam at the beach. The house has plentiful towels and beach toys that our bear family enjoyed. The hotel Lindo Mar across the street has an elevator for easy access to a beautiful beach with calm waters that our little bear particularly enjoyed.

We spent a lot of time swimming and laughing at the pool. Our time there was made better by Ivan’s constant supply of refreshing beverages. After fantastic dinners and deserts we were treated to mesmerizing sunsets. Our bear family has been to many places around the world but Casa Do Re Mi will forever be one of our favorites!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1971

About the owner: The people in Puerto Vallarta make you want to return every year. They are warm, full of joy, very friendly and helpful. We are mesmerized each day watching the ever changing ocean from our terraces.... passing the time while enjoying Chayo's breakfast or at sundown .... sipping Ivan's margaritas while watching the many boats, parasailing and schools of dolphins and whales in season. A dip in our large pool is refreshing - allowing us to leisurely float in the water soaking in the beauty of the exotic flowers that we have nurtured through the years. All the birds from the jungle enjoy our trees and give us a wonderful show, from the small green parrots to the vibrant yellow and black and bright blue birds. The ocean breezes are divine! We have traveled to vacation spots around the globe, but we never get the same feeling as we when arrive in Puerto Vallarta!

Why the Owner Chose South Zone:
Casa Do Re Mi is situated on a lush mountainside with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean in the Conchas Chinas Residential area (only 5 min. from the heart of town). We take pride in the beauty and exotic ambience of our villa and love that the taxi and bus stand is right at the bottom of our hill, giving our guests unparalleled convenience to town and the famed Conchas Chinas Beach. Our home is perfect for singles reuniting for a week of fun, three couples, families with children – up to nine guests. Our staff dreams up the perfect experiences for your needs, suiting your palate and your schedule of activities, whether it be relaxing or taking in all Vallarta has to offer. Accessibily to the airport was important as we are only a 20 minute drive. Also, having direct flights from the USA. Having a great beach / ocean front home in a friendly town with lots atmosphere and charm was a draw. From our first visit we fell in love with Vallarta because of the genuine warmth of the locals, their friendliness and the quaintness of this fishing village and its superb dining. The lush jungle and high mountains cascading down to the sandy beaches are always a spectacular sight. We are thrilled that many of our guests have become engaged at our villa and now return with their families. It's a romantic and fun place to hang out and enjoy a great staff who will accommodate your every need. After all these years, our feelings are still the same ~ we love Vallarta.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Our staff - our cook is fantastic with every meal more delicious than the last. As foodies, we take exceptional pride in knowing our chef is one of the best, most sought-after in Puerto Vallarta. Our houseman is also amazing ... he makes the 'Best' margaritas you’ve ever tasted !!!!! He is so friendly and as your personal concierge, will make reservations for whatever activity you wish to experience...from daily massages at the villa, canopy and fishing trips, golf tee times, to dinner reservations. Our housekeeper allows you to enjoy your stay by keeping the home beautiful and immaculate. Our staff prides themselves on giving our guests a memorable vacation experience by providing them with tips on how to fully enjoy each day in Puerto Vallarta. Our hacienda is ideally situated in the midst of green space. This affords you the opportunity yo view right from our terrace all the fabulous wildlife like the groups of green parrots, yellow and black birds, monarch butterflies in the winter, blue and black birds, amusing wild turkeys who always are in pairs ! Of course the dolphins and schools if flying fish can be fun to watch. Whales in the winter season too! Casa Do Re Mi is in a prime location making convenient to the beautiful Conchas Chinas Beach. A place you can relax and swim, snorkel and just enjoy the view of the entire Bay of Banderas. We provide you with beach chairs, towels, and coolers, stocked with delicious food from our cook. Our attention to detail and to offering you the service of a 5-star hotel makes our home one of a kind. It just doesn't get any better than this!
