VRBO Bear stayed here: We found this property to be beary special Read review
Welcome, we are Barb and Bob Sypult from Dallas, TX. We invite you to enjoy our private 5000' villa which is situated on a hillside overlooking the entire Bay of Banderas. The views and sunsets are spectacular. Across the street is the lovely Conchas Chinas beach which is only a 5 minute walk from our front door. We also have a private driveway for off street parking.
Your warm and inviting staff of three is what keeps our guests returning and telling their friends. Chayo does the shopping for fresh food daily. She is a marvelous cook. Sarah cleans the villa every day, changes the linen, and helps in anyway needed which adds to the general happiness of the guests.
Ivan, serves the best margaritas you've ever tasted. He also does a great job on the BBQ grill with fish, chicken, ribs and steak. Ivan makes all reservations for you from Canopy trips to dinner at a favorite restaurant. He is your own private concierge with the best smile and wants only to please our guests. The price of the rental includes their services, preparation of two meals per day plus afternoon appetizers to accompany your evening sunset. At the end of the stay, the guests are presented with a detailed bills of the food and beverage cost for payment. The quality preparation of the food and presentation make each meal a delight. They make every day a memorable one with their service....great margaritas, delicious meals and personal attention to any request.
Enjoy Wifi, Sirius XM Radio and an iPod connection with eight speakers which provide great sound in all the living areas and around the pool.
The swimming pool is very large with a deep end for diving and a shallow end for children. You will see the steps extend from one side to the other for easy access.
There are three large air conditioned bedrooms all facing the ocean. Large closets and dressers make for ease in unpacking. Each bedroom can be made up as a King Bed or Twin Beds. Just let us know. We also have a crib, pack n play and rails for young children. There are three additional rollaways. Each suite has its own private bath with double sinks, shower and lavatory.
Upstairs along with the expansive living area is a wet bar and dining room. In front of these areas is the long patio which is where breakfast is served daily. Downstairs is a wet bar with refrigerator by the pool and living area. A fun place to congregate. There are two fountains at either end of the pool.
A half bath downstairs serves the pool and living area along with extra guests.
You can enjoy complete privacy with the fountains, flowers and lush jungle surrounding three sides of the property. This creates an atmosphere for a relaxing vacation.
Enjoy your margarita, snoozing, swimming, reading, or having a personal masseuse come to the villa or playing games under the 22 foot thatched Palapa by the pool overlooking the blue Pacific.
Of course it's always fun to explore Old Town Vallarta (only a 4 min. taxi trip), taking a canopy trip, fishing, golf at one of the eight great golf courses...these and many more activities are all arranged by Ivan, your private concierge.
Our Staff will ensure you have a memorable vacation!!

A 22 foot thatched palapa acts as a protection from the sun and allows you to enjoy the wonderful ocean breezes while having lunch under the palapa, or just enjoying your chaise lounge and a margarita....moreless
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!

About the owner: We love to be around the Vallartan people who are warm, full of joy and so friendly and helpful. We also become absorbed watching the ever changing ocean from our terraces....we love passing the time enjoying breakfast or at sundown sipping margaritas while watching the many boats, parasailing and schools of dolphins and whales in season. A dip in the 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. The ocean breezes are divine! We have traveled to vacation spots around the globe, but we never get the same feeling as we get when we're 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 10 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. We also wanted an easily accessible location with an airport with many choices for direct flights from the USA and not have to drive far when we arrived. We also wanted a great beach / ocean front home in a friendly town with lots atmosphere and charm. 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 chose our property and built our hacienda because it had the most magnificent view of the entire Bay of Banderas and is easily accessible by taxicabs. We feel so lucky to have found this beautiful property which provides complete privacy because of its surroundings of lush tropics and stunning ocean views. After all these years, our feelings are still the same ~ we love Vallarta. 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 serve your every need.
