About Barb Sypult

The people in Puerto Vallarta make you want to return every year. They are warm, full of joy, very friendly and helpful. We are mesmerized each day watching the ever changing ocean from our terraces.... passing the time while enjoying Chayo's breakfast or at sundown .... sipping Ivan's margaritas while watching the many boats, parasailing and schools of dolphins and whales in season. A dip in our large pool is refreshing - allowing us to leisurely float in the water soaking in the beauty of the exotic flowers that we have nurtured through the years. All the birds from the jungle enjoy our trees and give us a wonderful show, from the small green parrots to the vibrant yellow and black and bright blue birds. The ocean breezes are divine! We have traveled to vacation spots around the globe, but we never get the same feeling as we when arrive in Puerto Vallarta!

Barb Sypult purchased this villa in 1972

Why Barb Sypult chose South Zone

Our location is ideal. We are situated on a lush mountainside with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean in the Conchas Chinas Residential area (only 5 min. from the heart of town). We take pride in the beauty and exotic ambience of our villa and love that the taxi and bus stand is right at the bottom of our hill, giving our guests unparalleled convenience to town and the famed Conchas Chinas Beach.

Our home is perfect for singles reuniting for a week of fun, three couples, families with children – up to nine guests. Our staff dreams up the perfect experiences for your needs, suiting your palate and your schedule of activities, whether it be relaxing or taking in all Vallarta has to offer.

Accessibily to the airport was important as we are only a 20 minute drive. Also, having direct flights from the USA. Having a great beach / ocean front home in a friendly town with lots atmosphere and charm was a draw.

From our first visit we fell in love with Vallarta because of the genuine warmth of the locals, their friendliness and the quaintness of this fishing village and its superb dining. The lush jungle and high mountains cascading down to the sandy beaches are always a spectacular sight.

We are thrilled that many of our guests have become engaged at our villa and now return with their families. It's a romantic and fun place to hang out and enjoy a great staff who will accommodate your every need.

After all these years, our feelings are still the same ~ we love Vallarta.

What makes this villa unique

Our staff - our cook is fantastic with every meal more delicious than the last. As foodies, we take exceptional pride in knowing our chef is one of the best, most sought-after in Puerto Vallarta.

The houseman makes the 'Best' margaritas you’ve ever tasted !!!!! He is so

friendly and as your personal concierge, will make reservations for whatever activity you wish to experience...from daily massages at the villa, canopy and fishing trips, golf tee times, to dinner reservations.

Our housekeeper allows you to enjoy your stay by keeping the home beautiful and immaculate.

Our staff prides themselves on giving our guests a memorable vacation experience by providing them with tips on how to fully enjoy each day in Puerto Vallarta.

Our hacienda is ideally situated in the midst of green space. This affords you the opportunity yo view right from our terrace all the fabulous wildlife like the groups of green parrots, yellow and black birds, monarch butterflies in the winter, blue and black birds, amusing wild turkeys who always are in pairs ! Of course the dolphins and schools if flying fish can be fun to watch. Whales in the winter season too!

Location, location, location is everything! We are in a prime are being close to the beautiful Conchas Chinas Beach, while only a four minute taxi to town. A place you can relax and swim, snorkel and just enjoy the view of the entire Bay of Banderas. We provide you with beach chairs, towels, and coolers, stocked with delicious food from our cook.

We pride ourselves in our attention to detail whether it is making arrangements for your excursions, preparing delicious meals, keeping the villa immaculate or preparing for a special occasion. Our staff is there to make your stay a memorable one.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Another fabulous two weeks in paradise. We had to tear Casey's hand from the balcony...she was so sad about leaving. This is the 'best restaurant' in town! We've been like hawks in the kitchen trying to learn a secret or two from Chayo. She is such a gracious lady and amazing chef! Ivan works constantly on the house and grounds while providing us with the best Margaritas EVER ! And I've had some great margaritas....We feel so pampered with Ivan's help and Mayela keeps the villa perfect all the time. Surely you have the best staff in PV! We cannot wait til our return next year.

Everything about this property was perfect. Ivan, Chayo and Sarah made our vacation care free and extremely enjoyable. The location of this property is perfect from the short walk to the beach to quick cab ride into town, though it was tough for us to leave the heated pool! Barb was great to deal with and very informative. We are looking forward to returning next year!

the reason? because all of you smart travelers will want to stay at this wonderful home.

It has it all: a fabulous central location, the best view and the most amazing 3 member staff. A chef, a house manager, and a cleaner. Wonderful space for a family reunion. A great value.

Beautiful unique villa with excellent view of the Bay and 3 wonderful staff who made our stay great!

  • 5 of 5

Three couples stayed at Casa DoReMi and we all loved the house, the bedrooms and many great shared spaces, the private pool, the amazing view from all rooms of the house, and the great personal staff. This is a unique property and we enjoyed so much our time in the villa. It is an easy cab to both the romantic and old town of Puerto Vallarta, or to the small beach community of Mismaloya where we left for whale watching and snorkeling or the beaches on the bay just a 10 minute walk .

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice words about your vacation at Casa Do Re Mi. When we purchased the land and built our house it was exactly for the reasons you mentioned. Ease to get to town--amazing views from everywhere in the house of the entire Bay and the five minute walk to the secluded Conchas Chinas beach across the street. The icing on the cake was the wonderful staff. They have been with us for many years and strive to ensure our guests have a memorable vacation.

My 7 girlfriends and I just came back from our stay at Casa DoReMi and cannot wait to go back!!! The house is absolutely beautiful (exactly like the pics); the food and service by Chayo, Ivan and Sara is the best!!!!!!! A dream stay!!

5 minute taxi to Malecon and city center where all the little shops and restaurants are.. and about a 10-15 taxi ride to nightclubs. After calling to request a taxi... they arrived in less than 5 minutes!!!!!

I was nervous since I had never booked a stay through VRBO... but Barb, the owner is beyond wonderful and made the overall process so easy and smooth.. the nicest person ever!

Owner's Response: WOW...I am very humbled by your kind words. We love our home and our staff and are so appreciative when people, like yourself, decide to reserve our house over ALL the others offered on VRBO. It is a real compliment and we take your vacation time very seriously. I didn't tell you, but many years ago I was a travel agent with Cook's Tours. It is in my DNA to make sure every guest has the very best experience possible, not only with our home but with our precious town, Puerto Vallarta. So a big thank you and we send our good wishes on your forthcoming marriage and honeymoon to Africa. We loved the photo and will put it on Facebook (with your permission) and our is the best ever ! Look forward to having y'all back in the future. Thank you, Barb

Incredible House for PV Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough great things about our experience at Casa Do Re Mi. We were in Puerto Vallarta celebrating my 60th birthday with 6 other friends and relatives. The house is spectacular in every way and the view from the back of the house is breathtaking. Ivan (the houseman), Chayo (the cook), and Sarah (the housekeeper) were absolutely wonderful in making our stay enjoyable. Ivan was so helpful in coordinating our activities and providing information about the town. Chayo did an amazing job in the kitchen and provided us with delicious meals. Sarah did an excellent job of keeping the house tidy. Thanks to Barb for suggesting and setting up reservations to two fabulous restaurants. She was also very accommodating in making the arrangements for the rental. We could not be happier with our experience at Casa Do Re Mi and I would highly recommend staying there for your future Puerto Vallarta vacation!
