                        We were at this beautiful casa for a week in mid March 2014. A great trip all around! The staff is excellent , the food also excellent! We saw whales, sunsets on the beach! The beach access is perfect, so very private! We hardly saw anyone on the beach as far as we could see! The beds are comfortable, each room has its own private bath! I easily give this 5 stars all around! It is Great having a driver, no worries about transportation, or food, just relax and enjoy!

                        We recently stayed in the house for eight nights. It was our extended family including grandparents and two families with young children. The house is perfect! Everyone had so much fun. The pool, beach, and neighborhood are all beautiful, safe and fun. The caretakers are also such wonderful people. Highly recommended!

                        We had an amazing time. The house was clean and inviting. We enjoyed sipping coffee in the morning under the palapa and watching the sunrise. Our caretakers Rosa and Gilberto were perfect hosts. Gilberto makes an exquisite margarita and Rosa's meals were sumptuous. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay a little longer. I don't know if I ever want to stay in a hotel again. The beach is gorgeous and the pool was always a nice way to end the day. We will definitely come back. We felt safe and were very well attended. *The pie place in Bucerias had some of the best cheesecake ever!!

                        Reading the other comments on this property I am convinced that the one negative comment, the commenters must be confusing this place with another or they are extremely unhappy people. We found Kathy's place and our hosts, Rosa and Gilberto, to be a remarkable experience and we will book again next year! We have been visiting Mexico for 12 years and stayed in many places in and around the Puerto Vallarta area and this was our favorite place above all.

                        This was our 6 or 7th trip to Abuelas and it has become a family tradition. I saw one negative review on here and the rest very positive. Believe the positive reviews, they are accurate. This place and setting define tranquility. Rosa and Gilberto are wonderful, warm, gracious hosts and the owner, Kathy Young, is simply delightful to work with. For this trip she suggested a boat trip with a new tour outfitter, AllyCat, and it was a huge hit. Simply, this house is the envy of every house in Burros. If it is booked, try Kathy's other house Casa Amigos which is equally wonderful.

                        Don't bother looking at any other homes to rent in the area - this is a gem and can't wait to go back. So happy friends had recommended it. The house has everything you need with the major plus of a car, airport pick up and drop off, and the two most lovely locals to take care of you: Rosa and Gilberto. Rosa and Gilberto Our mediocre travel Spanish was plenty good enough to get by (and they understood a bit more English than our Spanish so no real language barrier). And, they are both SO SWEET. Rosa is an amazing cook and will plan meals with you everyday (don't miss her chicken mole, baja fish tacos, and chile relleno!). She kept the house spotless and even did our laundry! Gilberto made killer fresh lime margaritas, ready for us every afternoon. He also kept the garden and patios swept clean and made sure the pool was crystal clear. Beach AND a pool My husband and I both surf so didn't think we'd use the pool but we were in it everyday. The ocean was really warm so it was a wonderful way to cool off. The Burros main surf break was a short paddle up (5 min. with our longboards) but you could also walk. We didn't hit a great swell so a few days we drove 5 min. to La Lancha surf break and enjoyed that a bit better. But if you didn't feel like getting in a car, Burros would do just fine. The house's beach was very clean and secluded. We only saw a few people early in the AM and out for walks at sunset. I laid in the hammock under the house's private palapa by the ocean all afternoon and red books. No hassles of vendors or other people. Hard to find that anywhere The House Plenty of room for a gang but we were perfectly comfortable - the house did not seem overwhelming with just the 2 of us (although 3 bedrooms went unused). Comfortable beds, beautiful mexican tile throughout, TV (didn't think we'd use but surprisingly the SF Giants were in the World Series!). No issues with plumbing, electricity, etc. Note: a given in the tropics, bring bug repellant for sunrise/sunset. Central location We were so happy at the house we didn't get out much. We drove to Sayulita (a little too touristy for us but lots of shops and restaurants). Punta de Mita closer, smaller with shops/rest., PV not far if you need more action. Close to airport a big plus Kathy's a pleasure to deal with and makes sure you have all details about the house before you get there. We felt perfectly safe in the house and gated community. For a worry free trip, book this!

                        We have been all over mexico and stayed in hotels and condos and prefer Casa de Abeuelas and Amigos in Punta Del Burro to anywhere else. We just returned from our third trip to this house and stayed for a wonderful two weeks. We LOVE everything about it. The staff is exceptional and personable, the house is immaculately cleaned, the food is tremendous and the relaxation superb! Rosa and Gilberto are a delight to have around and do everything they can to make your stay what you want it to be, including home prepared five-star meals. They even made virgin Pina Coladas for the kids without being asked. Las Distilideras beach is a 5 minute drive and is the best beach in all of the PV area. Sayulita for surfing and Bucerias and Punta Mita are delightful visits within 30 minute drive. The area is very safe and driving anywhere easy. I recommend this house to all of my family and friends and everyone else has come back with nothing but perfect reviews!

                        This is our third time over 20 years, to return to Casa Abuelas for our anniversary. As always, we had a wonderful and delightful time. Gilberto and Rosa took excellent care of us. It is always a pleasure to be waited on and cooked for by such friendly and hospitable folks. Each night they asked us what we wanted for meals and the next day and we enjoyed delightful Mexican meals. They surprised us when they returned one morning with a bean cook pot and tortilla warmer that we had only hinted at wanting. However, they went above and beyond all expectations after our son came down with an ear infection from swimming and was in great pain. Rosa found a doctor who spoke English and Gilberto drove us there! We would highly recommend Casa Abuelas - the home, the beach, the car and the service are all delightful.

                        I was checking the calendar of Casa de las Abuelas and noticed the negative review. I felt that I had to respond to it.. I have been going to Casa de las Abuelas for several years. It is absolutely my favorite villa, and I travel a lot. I have never felt unsafe. In fact, the opposite is true. The days and nights spent there are so restful that after a week or two, I am able to return to the "real world". Rosa nd Gilberto make you feel so special. They are kind, helpful and hard working. Everything is always in perfect shape. I enjoy working with the owner, Kathy. She really wants everone to have a trouble free trip and does all she can to make sure you do. I also noticed that all the other reviews are positive. If you are reading this, I would dismiss the bad review and believe the good ones. I know I will be returning to the villa this November.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1986

                      About the owner: I am a 73 year old grandmother, who is soon to be a great grandmother. I have been coming to Mexico for 40 years. I love Mexico.

                      Why the Owner Chose Punta del Burro:
                      I was one of the original owners in Punta del Burro. When you see the area, you will know why I fell in love with it. I bought it when there was hardly anything there. Now we have cobbled stone roads, underground utilities and 24 hour security. We have all the bells and whistles.
