Each of the four comfortable guest rooms, located on the second and third floors, has its own private balcony, custom tiled bathroom with shower and tub, queen/king size beds, and a sweeping panoramic view of the palm lined sandy beaches while the warm Pacific is at the doorstep.
The sun drenched patios and terraces are favorite places for reading and relaxation complimented by the brilliant bougainvillea flowers and palms that grow on the hillside location overlooking the sea. Sun lounges on all balconies and large umbrellas on the lower patio provide shade and comfort. The hearted jacuzzi, for 8, provides a soothing respite after a day of sightseeing and adventure.
The housekeeper, Martha, is also a wonderful cook. She will be more than happy to prepare meals for the guests, however, she will be charging for the cost of the food and her services. This is a very good opportunity to enjoy some fine 'authentic' Mexican food. ...moreless

well known Mexican towns nested between the between the beautiful Sierra Madre Mountains and the mighty Blue Pacific Ocean. A 15 minute walk along the beach brings you into the main square of La Penita. Rincon de Guayabitos is easily reached by walking a little further south along the beach or driving or taking a local taxi. We are also only a 30 minute drive North of Sayulita!!
Year Purchased: 1986
About the owner: My mother and another couple purchased the property to build a bed and breakfast in La Penita. Casa de Los Amigos was finished in l987-8 and was opened at that time. Architect Salvador 'Cachi' Perez, a Puerto Vallarta native, designed the home and in the following years has become a famous Mexican architect. My husband and I after 34 years owning a catering company in the wine region of Northern California have embarked on a new adventure as the new owners of this stunning Villa and are looking so forward to sharing this special place with all our new guests.
Why the Owner Chose La Penita: Having traveled in Mexico with our children for many years and having a bed and breakfast business in California which did not allow us to take time off in the summer we decided we wanted to enjoy the 'warmth of Mexico' for our winter vacations. Being inn-keepers it seemed only natural to 'open a B and B in Mexico!' Our location was decided due to a small airfield north of town, with a paved 4,000 ft x 70 ft. wide runway where we could land our plane and with the military bivouacing in the bushes nearby the plane would be safe. We had vacationed in the area for 3 years prior to this decision and have enjoyed the following 28 years since!
The Unique Benefits at this House: The location with sweeping views of the bay and the island, the mountains, along with the proximity of the small town of La Penita along with the resort town of Rincon de Guayabitos, and other small towns along the Riviera Nayarit clear to Puerto Vallarta offer a diversity of activities, places to visit and enjoy and a lifestyle that is unequaled for warmth and friendliness.
