Other Puerto Vallarta Properties villa description
Casa dos Palmas is a true luxury beach house, with the Pacific Ocean as its front yard. This private home with its magnificent ocean views and quiet beach is but a scant 20 minutes North of the charm of Puerto Vallarta. Let Casa dos Palmas with its beauty and tranquility surround you. Fabulous sunrises and sunsets await. Located directly on the beach, the ocean is calm and undertow free.
Walk or jog along miles of spectacular beach. Visit and explore the quiet and friendly Mexican town of Bucerias. This newly built, privately gated, fully-furnished villa has the attention to detail that can make your vacation an unforgettable experience.
Its lush courtyard with tropical gardens and a beautiful swimming pool provides the perfect background to relax in. During the day many activities are available within a short drive. Or, simply take advantage of the on-site kayaks or bikes to view the surrounding area. Try your luck catching lunch or dinner -- surf casting with the poles provided.
Casa dos Palmas offers both sun and shade - take your pick. The gentle ocean breezes keep the temperature perfect. Bring your snorkel gear, and try your luck at collecting your own fresh oysters which abound. For golfing enthusiasts, it's just a question of which course to play today. The nearest golf course is just 5 minutes away. Or relax, and just settle back with your favorite book -- and look up to see the sea birds plunging for their meal.
You can also see the dolphins at play. And in the early months of the year, you can witness the gray whales, who use the Bay to give birth to their young. After your day in paradise, casually walk the beach to one of the beachside restaurants in Bucerias for dinner.
In the evening, the rolling surf will lull you to sleep. Casa dos Palmas is located in Bucerias, and is accessible via Mexican Highway 200 (a new four-lane highway), ten miles north of the Puerto Vallarta airport. Vibrant downtown Puerto Vallarta is just a 20-minute drive.
Located on site are two ocean kayaks, two new mountain bikes, and surf-casting fishing gear. Want to wind down after a day in the sun? Enjoy the 46' HD LCD TV, with satellite feed featuring HBO and Premium movie channels. A DVD library exists, or bring a few that you haven't had time to watch at home. The kitchen is fully stocked with all glass and tableware, cooking utensils, and assorted basic dry goods.
An outdoor BBQ grill, facing the beach, allows charcoal grilling at sunset of your favorite meat or seafood. Complimentary wireless Internet access provided. Bring your laptop, work 'til 10:00 am, turn on the Auto-reply, and hit the beach. Deep-sea fishing charters can be arranged. The English- and Spanish-speaking property manager is on call.
Maid service is three times weekly. A 50% down payment is required to secure the villa. The balance is due eight weeks prior to your arrival. Check-in time is 3:00 pm. Check-out time is 11:00 am. Smoking is permitted Outside.
Enjoy golf? Paradise Village is ten minutes away, as is the Mayan Palace. Four Seasons is a 20-minute drive. Vista Vallarta (home of the PGA World Cup in December) is 20 minutes away. Marina Vallarta is a scant 15 minutes away.

Best Trip to Mexico Ever!
Best Trip to Mexico Ever!
My husband and I wanted a private vacation for our 3rd anniversary and we were very pleased with Casa Dos Palmas and all of the amenities of the property. We got lucky and no one else had rented the other units so we had the whole property to ourselves. What a nice change from hotels where we did not have to share the pool, beach, or any outdoor space with loud children, young partiers, or any of those people you meet at the resort who think you should hang out with them every day once you meet them. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool every day but one and had so much fun body surfing (well, sort of body surfing). The home is so clean and charming and really does have everything you need, right down to a variety of pool floats! Once I found the chair float, I would not give it up. We highly recommend this place to couples or families and will recommend to all of our friends and family. We are already talking about when to go back. It was even better then the pictures. We do recommend bringing your Pesos before you get there as we found some ATMs out of order and there will be fees each time you withdraw. Also, we recommend buying everything you need right away at the MEGA supermarket so you won't have to pay a taxi fare to go back. The taxi fares really add up and we would probably get a car next time. You can walk the beach to town when it is cool, but during the summer months some days can be too hot to walk 20 minutes at mid-day. We liked El Chivero for a beach restaurant and the Gringo Tacos at Yo Yo Mo's are a must and very inexpensive. The Mojitos at Eva's Brickhouse were also wonderful. Breakfast at StarBay hotel next door is extremely convenient, but if you go a few more doors down to Vista Vallarta, you will get juice and coffee included with your breakfast for even cheaper than the $5 at StarBay. We really liked the quaintness of Bucerias and found no need to go into Puerto Vallarta. The shopping was great! Leave lots of room in your suitcase for great Mexican serving dishes and art. Thank you so much Gary and Charlene for really taking care of your guests! AJ & Dean

Our trip to the Casa dos Palmos
Our trip to the Casa dos Palmos
We are a young family of four and were there two weeks in july 2010. We really had a wonderful time at the Casa dos Palmos. We just loved everything. The house is very well maintained and the location is great for those, like us, seeking privacy, calm and a real mexican experience (as opposed to a tourist trap!). We felt pretty lucky to deal with 'real' owners, not corporations, who care about our well-being. We also have nothing but good words for the staff there who were very helpful. They really cared for us. Baldo, especially, was very accomodating, helping us for planning our activities. Since we don't speak a lot of spanish, his help was much appreciate. Thanks to Charlene, Gary and all the staff at the Casa dos Palmos! Hope to go to your wonderful house again! Martin, Montreal, Qc

Casa Dos Palmas - This is “Casa Dos Paradise”! We spent two weeks at the Casa in April and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Casa is even better than the pictures shown on the website! It is the kind of place where you can “do as much as you want” or “as little as you want”. Imagine spending your day doing what you want to do without having to worry about time or reservations. Imagine falling asleep to the soothing sound of the ocean waves and in the morning stepping out onto the balcony and seeing paradise. Have your coffee or tea poolside while watching the fishermen dive for oysters. Spend your afternoon floating in your private pool and your evening sitting on the sea wall watching the sun set. This Casa has it all. The owners have thought of just about everything you will need to enjoy your vacation, from recreation items to cooking supplies. They have left nothing to chance. The Casa has a very professional guidebook on site that surpasses the information provided at hotels. There is maid service three times a week, and the garden is kept in beautiful shape by a ground maintenance crew that comes on a regular basis. Conceirge services from Baldo were fantastic and we looked forward to his daily contact and chats. He also hooked us up with a great fishing trip where Robert caught his first sailfish. We found nothing lacking during our stay and are definitely planning to return as soon as we can.Robert and Angeline / Edmonton

This was a great vacation, The Casa, beach, pool the town everything was exceptional. Friendly people and service staff at this casa are just the begining. BBQing a steak on the natural grill while enjoying the sunset is just one of my fondest memories. You can tell the owners have gone out of their way to make this casa a true home. Would recomend to anyone. Thanks again

What a beautiful villa! Casa Dos Palmos was everything we expected....plus! Very authentic, quaint, and there wasn't a thing that that we needed, that wasn't there. Baldo.............a true gentleman! He and His sister Litty, cooked us an absolutely fantastic dinner. The Chicken Mole was very good. I have never had authentic Mexican food, so for me this was a big thing! I definitely recommend anyone staying at the villa to have a meal cooked by Baldo, and Litty. Once again Charlene, and Gary.....you own a small piece of what I call "Heaven on Earth." Thank you again for your hospitality!!! Peace.....Diane and Dale Woytiuk

My fiance and I were looking for tranquil relaxation this August and were thrilled to get that and more at Casa dos Palmas. The days were lovely, relaxing under our palapas on an empty beach with just a few neighbors nearby; floating in the quiet bay's soft waves and then jumping into the pool for a refreshing swim. The house was clean and comfortable with beautiful decor. We had everything we needed for the few rainy summer nights that rolled in briefly; satellite tv, dvd player with a great dvd selection, wireless internet and board games for entertainment. The staff that assisted us throughout our stay was friendly and helpful. We are particularly happy with the property manager Baldo who catered to our every whim and made us smile every day. Charlene & Gary were attentive and informative leading up to our visit which made everything move smoothly once we got there. After our wonderful week long stay at Casa dos Palmas, we know we'll be back next year!

The property was well maintained (daily maid service and pool cleaning) and was near shopping and "tourist" attractions. The property owner advised us where to rent a car and the service was excellent. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to get away from it all - however, there is internet and satellite television service if you can't seem to let go. My best experience was Vallarta Adventure Zip Lines tour. Downtown Vallarta and Old Town were also beautiful. For those who want a marguerita when arriving, check to make sure they are not having a national election. We could not buy alcohol for 2 days because of this.

It's been almost three months since our week-long stay at Casa Caballito. My family and I often enjoy talking about our visit to the town of Bucerias. The local residents are warm, friendly, and generous with their hellos. We loved walking down the beach to dine at the excellent restaurants where the staff couldn't do enough to make our visit a pleasant experience. My daughters keep asking when we're going back. I would love to go again. I think about our dream vacation to Casa Caballito often, and when I do, I smile.

We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Caballito, the house is very charming, clean and comfortable, with all the amenities, the staff was very kind and took very good care of us. Our vacation included swimming in the warm and calm ocean twenty feet away from us, taking long walks on the beach in the afternoons, having dinner in the patio watching the sunset, having cocktails at the house’s own palapa, swimming in the pool under the stars at midnight, and yes, my husband was happy that he could watch US baseball and check his email too! This was a very special vacation that we will never forget…

We rented this property 6/20-6/27/07 It was great! There were 6 of us: my husband and I, three of my kids (one is a baby) and grandma. The house is small, but it wasn't a problem, since we had our private beach and pool! I wrote an essay about our adventure, but only the beginning will fit :(When I was looking for Mexico vacation first thing I found – a lot of all inclusive clubs. I've been in such place, most recently: in Spain last summer. That’s what I felt - too many people around, I can't relax near the pool (or any other place for that matter), when there is another person in 15" from the right and 15" from the left. Maybe we had spent too much time in cubicles? Or maybe not enough time to get so used to them that we would love to spend our vacation in one of them too. The place we rent and surrounding area is great. Very private, quiet and has everything we want. This big hotel in Nuevo Vallarta maybe looks prettier, but we are just too private for all this fun in all inclusive clubs ? This is most private beach house you can get... in a warm climate... I can say for myself: I didn't have more private vacation in years! Even when we took Na Pali Coast backpack trip in Kauai there were people on the trail and sometimes near our tent were other tents... Sinkyone Lost Coast trail backpack trip was great too... You see - you need to go to really wild, hard to reach spot to get that kind of privacy! But it might be just our luck – now it’s off season here. First evening we didn't go out, thanks to the owner, we had something in the fridge to sustain ourselves until next day for sure.
