                          Location

                          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
