"tl;dr: Roger is the greatest, the views will make leaving the home and going anywhere else during your stay tough, great food, beautiful rooms.
So it's tough to top all the great reviews that are already here for this home, but I will at least add to the 5 stars and heap on the praise.
I'll start with the best, and this is probably Roger and his staff. We absolutely loved him. None of us had ever stayed at a house with a staff before, so were a little unsure how it would work, or if it would get awkward having someone we didn't know hanging about.
That fear dissipated instantly. He was there when you needed him/wanted a drink, and would know when to hang back. From the morning coffee/pastries ready when we woke, to the setting up cab rides/group trips, to just being a fun guy, he was flat out awesome.
Now onto the house. The reviews all say pics don't do it justice, and I nod my head and say, "sure, I'm guessing it's nice and all, but it can't be THAT nice". Well it's that nice, it really is. From the moment you walk in the front door you get a cool sea breeze and an eyeful of beautiful blue water. You walk down the marble stairs while admiring the tall thatched style roof and open air everything (living room, dining room, kitchen).
When you get down to the main living area you realize the view keeps going. As you see in the pics you have a great view of Los Arcos and the bay of Puerta Vallarta, but than you look left and all you see is green mountains plunging into the water. The view is unbeatable. Almost every room and bedroom takes advantage of this.
Not really any downsides to this home. I was hoping it would be a little closer to down town Puerta Vallarta, it ended up being a 20 minute cab ride. But you really won't want to leave once you get here. We really did end up staying in more and just drinking and singing Karaoke (1st night there we wondered into Mismaloya and sang some karaoke with the locals, Roger heard about this and got us a sound system and mics for the rest of our stay...awesome)
I could go on about everything we loved, but I'll end here and say do yourself a favor and go to this home and have the best vacation of your life."
