- Located 15 minutes north of the airport, the quaint Mexican village of Bucerias is within easy reach of Puerto Vallarta, but without the hustle and bustle of its neighbor to the south. A popular phrase says that Bucerias is like Puerto Vallarta was 20 years ago. The cobblestone streets, relaxed atmosphere, and lovely town square of the village bear this out. The locals are welcoming, warm, and friendly. There are many good shops and restaurants in Bucerias. Dozens of open air restaurants line the beach and the four main streets that run parallel to the ocean. But if you feel the need for a more active nightlife or additional shopping, it's only a short trip into Puerto Vallarta via bus, taxi, or available car rentals. In town are many conveniences such as grocery stoes, pharmacies, travel agencies, car rentals, currency exchange, and tour booking information. There are even several ATM's in town. Best of all, Bucerias has a wonderful five mile stretch of sandy beaches Other Activities: Shopping, Boating, Parasailing, Shelling, Wildlife Viewing Golf: There is great golfing at the nearby Flamingos Golf Course....moreless

We had the pleasure of staying in this Beautiful house in September 2006. The second floor is amazing. Loved to enjoy our morning coffee and our evenings on the terrace. The pool was very nice to relax in. It is kept very clean with daily maid service. Close enough to walk to the town center, beach, stores and restaurants. Great place to use as a home base as we did alot of day trips. Would stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone.

Casa Rainbow is the ideal stay for anyone that is looking for complete relaxation during their vacation to the Mexican Riviera! It is a two minute walk to the beach and a quick bus or taxi trip to Puerto Vallarta. The location is set in a beautiful community that is calm and away from the hustle and bustle! Casa Rainbow is not just an vacation rental it is an actual home! The decor on the inside and villa design on the outside will take your breath away. If you are like me who enjoys the sun, but not so much the heat you will especially like all of the air conditioned rooms on all levels. We traveled with three couples and there was a lot of time spent by the refreshing private pool at all times of the day. The house is large enough to also spend time reading your book on the balcony while everyone enjoys a nice cold beer by the pool. There is always a house manager that we could call if we had any questions. Also, Richard, the house owner, was also extremely helpful at a moments notice. We cannot wait to book another vacation at Casa Rainbow, but next time for longer than just 4 days!

We recently had the pleasure of spending a week at Casa Rainbow. Upon driving through the front gate, to entering the front door of the house , we were very impressed and excited! The grounds were well kept with beautiful, exotic trees, plants and flowers. Once behind the front gate , it was very private. Next, a refreshing swimming pool, uniquely made of stone, conviently located in front of the house. Someone came daily to clean the pool. The house was beautiful, exactly as it looks in the pictures. We rented the first floor studio, it was very clean and well equipped with everything you could possibly need. We were very comfortable and felt safe. A daily morning walk to the beach helped , as we were enjoying all the delious foods we found in Bucerias.Maid service and pool cleaning was very nice. Also Victor, the groundskeeper, was just a phone call away. Casa Rainbow is beautiful, affordable, private and conviently located to beach and shopping. We would recomment Casa Rainbow to friends and family. We are making Casa Rainbow an annual vacation spot. Thanks to Richard for sharing your home

We stayed at Casa Arco Iris in May 2006, we think, had such a great time memory fails. My mother had a room with bathroom to the ceiling in tile like a cathedral, while my buddy statyed in the Casita below, and my family had the master suite complete with library and loads of privacy. Enjoyed the deceptively deep yet kid friendly pool, the geckos flitting about, views of the ocean, and breezes from the portal while I puffed on a Cuban!!! Everything nearby, except us gringos! Can't wait to return. Regards, Colin, Jenn,and Bella.

About the owner: I'm a software engineer living and working in San Jose, California. I bought Casa Rainbow as my retirement home, but since I'm not able to live there yet, I hope others can enjoy this beautiful home.
Why the Owner Chose Bucerias:
I love Puerto Vallarta, it's such a great place to shop and dine. But I bought in Bucerias to have a quiet place to relax. As it turns out, there are dozens of restaurants to try right in Bucerias!
The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
One thing we can offer over resorts and condos is privacy. The pool and grounds are for guests only. And take a look at the pictures -- this gorgeous house was designed in a mexical traditional style, and built on a 1/4 acre. You'll have your own kitchen and outdoor grill, laundry, air conditioning, and all the comforts of home. Why stay at a cookie-cutter hotel when you have your own place?
