Los Muertos Beach condo description
CASA TUCAN is one of eleven suites in the distinctive Villa Blanca condominium, renowned for its organic design by Mexican architect Diego Mendez De La Penas. Variously known as “the Piano Building” or “Vallarta’s Wedding Cake,” Villa Blanca is one of the most architecturally distinctive buildings in Puerto Vallarta, and is widely recognized for its lush plantings and spectacular views.
Each unit in Villa Blanca is privately owned, and the building is serviced by a friendly and helpful manager fluent in English. Daily maid service is included, and a security guard is present after dark.
CASA TUCAN is a LUXURIOUSLY spacious (MORE THAN 850 sq. ft.!) TRUE 1-BR, 2-Bath suite, perfect for short or long-term rentals! Quietly situated away from common areas.
The unit includes a full kitchen (sans oven), dining area, LR w/2 large sofas (each can sleep 1 adult), Private BR w/King-size bed, and 2 full Baths complete with large tiled showers. CASA TUCAN is a private retreat awash in light, and features its own PRIVATE SUNSET TERRACE/LANAI, unique among 1-BR and studios in this building.
Additional amenities include the beautiful cooling pool at the building entrance patio, which offers a welcome respite from the glorious Vallartan sunshine. And the rooftop terrace is a haven for quiet sunsets or evening gatherings, offering a spectacular panoramic view of Banderas Bay from Los Arcos to downtown Puerto Vallarta. The rooftop terrace also features a traditional Mexican grill and outdoor bar/kitchen area.
For one of Vallarta’s most glorious beaches, cross the cobblestone Amapas Street, and you're less than 100 steps down to the beautiful Playa Los Muertos, with sand, surf, people-watching and an abundance of beach cafes, including the famous Blue Chairs Beach.
CASA TUCAN is centrally located in the Zona Romantica, and just a short walk to everything the Old Town and Olas Altas areas have to offer, from shopping to clubs and fine dining. Just minutes south of Casa Tucan lay numerous small, secluded beaches, and the area abounds in charming day-trip destinations rife with local color and culture. Whether you’re searching for a quiet romantic retreat, or an evening spent sipping martini’s in a luxurious cabaret lounge, Zona Romantica offers a quieter alternative to the bustle of Nuevo Vallarta and the Marina district.

Great location, quiet, safe, and cool!
Great location, quiet, safe, and cool!
This is a cool place to stay. The building is architecturally unique; each unit has its own outdoor entrance (behind a secure perimeter); it is well-located above Los Muertos Beach (cross the street and go down the stairs or walk down the slope of the street and around the corner) and within 3-4 blocks of Olas Altas and its restaurants/bars/coffee bars, and within a block of a small grocery store with liquor sales. The manager and the night watchman are helpful; the lady who cleans is pleasant and accommodating (a nice tip was much appreciated) - we did not have many occasions to require the manager or watchman to help us, but carrying our luggage in and out and bringing bottled water was performed quickly. The apartment is a good size and would sleep 4. 2 Bathrooms, both with showers. The BR was large, and contained a work area with a small library of books and CDs. Windows opened onto the open area/stairway from the places above (the windows are well-above the stairs). The LR was a good size, with 2 sofas, which double as beds, plus a dining table, and glass doors to the balcony. The balcony was great for a couple to sit on for a drink, or to read, and to watch the sunset - there is a good, but not sweeping, view of the water and over toward Cabo Corrientes. The condo is cleaned daily if you wish (don't forget a little tip). We did not cook while there, eating only fruit and vegetables in the condo - there's plenty of great food nearby! The condo is well-situated for walking, though taxis are always parked across the street. There are some stairs - maybe 20 - up from the street to the gate, and more up to the condo - not too onerous. The street is not busy and the area was always quiet by 11pm, often earlier. A bit Mexican, a little funky/cool, a unique and well-maintained building - a place we would definitely return to. Lock-box; wi-fi, CD player, fridge, stove, microwave, TV.

My wife and I have been coming to Puerto Vallarta for the last 5 years and have stayed at Villa Blanca - the building that Casa Tucan is located, for the past four years. We love the building location, its size, and the people who work there, especially the manager, Jose Luis. This past trip we stayed at Casa Tucan for the first time. Casa Tucan is a large one bedroom with everything that we needed. From the small balcony we had a beautiful view of the bay and enjoyed sitting there with our morning coffee and afternoon drinks, listening to and looking at the water. We loved our stay there and would highly recommend this condo to others

I very much enjoyed my 2-week stay at Casa Tucan in the Villa Blanca Condominum Complex. The condo was very clean, well equipped and had a lovely view of the ocean from the balcony. The manager of the complex was very kind and helpful. The cleaning staff were very friendly and efficient. The condominium building was always spotless and well maintained. Always a security guard present in the evenings. The terrace was amazing and had a spectacular view of the ocean, beaches and the surrounding area. I took many pictures of the incredible sunsets from the terrace. I even used the barbecue one evening to cook some fish and shrimps!! The condo is very well located and only a few minutes from the Blue Chairs Beach. Also nearby are numerous restaurants, bars, night clubs, boutiques, hotels etc. I also want to mention that the owners were incredibly helpful in sending me information, before I arrived in Puerto Vallarta, on where to eat, shop, location of grocery stores, clubs, and they outlined the numerous activities available for tourists to this wonderful part of Mexico. I have no hesitation in recommending Casa Tucan to any individual. I cannot wait to return in 2012!!! Paul Montreal, Canada

Loved Casa Tucan and was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable and accessible to everything it was. I was there in December and got to use all the facilities including the pool/lounge area.It was a quiet building with a view of the most amazing sunsets. It sure was a treat to fall asleep to the sound of the waves crashing on the shore. The kitchen had everything I wanted and needed. The manager was a charming and helpful man. Ron, you are a very lucky man to have such a gorgeous little gem.
