"Mi Casa, Su Casa." CASA DE BANDERAS welcomes you to share our home away from home, and to make it "su casa" for your time here. Relax and unwind in the SERENITY of your own spacious, well-appointed townhome complete with your PRIVATE, OCEAN FACING POOL, grassy lawn and STONE STEPS with a locked gate (with key) for direct access to the water. View gorgeous sunrise and enjoy peaceful evening views of Bucerias and Puerto Vallarta. Watch the oyster divers from your lawn chair while soaking up the sun or wander the beaches. The grey whales, December to mid-March, are amazing.
Our casa is located a half an hour drive north of Puerto Vallarta, RIGHT ON THE OCEAN, halfway between the small Mexican towns of Bucerias and La Cruz. You can walk to either town at LOW tide on the beach in about 20-35 minutes depending on how fast you walk.
Experience the cultural best of both worlds. Discover the quaint, small-town shopping and dining in Bucerias and La Cruz with quick access to sights and attractions of the famous sun-drenched resort of Puerto Vallarta, a mere 30-minute drive away. Plus a short half-hour drive to the surfing town of Sayulita. Fabulous beach days await!
Follow your marble staircase upstairs to the master suite with a QUEEN Bed, carved wooden writing desk, and private, ALL MARBLE Bathroom. Hair dryers available in both bathrooms. The guest suite upstairs has the flexibility of two twin-sized beds which can be combined into a KING. There is a double-bed sized sofa bed on the main level in the living room suitable for one adult or 2 small children. A crib can be arranged for the little one for a small fee.
Both bedrooms are tastefully decorated in MEXICAN DECOR and have sliding doors that open out to a balcony overlooking YOUR OWN POOL and the Bay of Banderas. So brew your coffee, relax and enjoy the morning sunrise or the evening lights of Puerto Vallarta with your margarita or other favorite beverage.
On the main floor, a wall of sliders in the living room and dining room open directly onto the covered patio and the pool area which leads to the rocky beach. A PROPANE GRILL is outside for those great barbeques. A second bathroom is conveniently located on this floor along with the sofa-bed couch for those who prefer not to negotiate stairs. Watch your FLAT SCREEN TV with satellite TV service that gets some American channels. There is a CD/MP3 player with some CDs provided, or bring your MP3 player and listen to your own tunes.
COMPLIMENTARY BREAKFAST FOOD, soda and beer await you in the fridge and a LAUNDRY ROOM adjoins the well-equipped kitchen. Weekly MAID SERVICE enhances your vacation, while the pool and yard are impeccably maintained for you. A beach umbrella, beach towels, hand cooler, and cooler on wheels will enhance your excursions to the best beaches in Mexico. Don't forget the sunscreen!
A reloadable CELL PHONE is provided with 200 pesos of minutes. Wireless/wired INTERNET available in the casa so bring your laptop and keep in touch. Internet cafes nearby if you prefer. A rental car is useful but not critical, as the bus stop is about 3 blocks away. Just flag the bus down on the highway. Buses run frequently, are inexpensive and are quite an education in local culture. Taxi phone number is programmed into the complimentary cell phone.
Enjoy sightseeing tours and activities such as, surfing, horseback riding, whale watching, fishing, zip lining through the jungle canopy and mountain biking, to name a few. Our BILINGUAL property manager is a wealth of information and only a phone call away. Ask us about arranging a sport fishing, whale watching or snorkeling charter. We can also arrange for an authentic MEXICAN HOME-COOKED MEAL to be waiting for you upon your arrival (or more days if you wish) at a reasonable cost. Or if you wish a massage, that can be arranged also, in the privacy of the casa.
Casa de Banderas is the perfect place for a ROMANTIC HONEYMOON, family vacation, a shared vacation with great friends, birthday, anniversary or any OTHER SPECIAL EVENT in your life.
We are very proud of our casa and are sure you will enjoy your time here.

We are two families of friends who bought this wonderful townhouse together. We use it frequently throughout the year and love to share it with guests when we are not there.
Nita purchased this townhome in 2006
We love the view, the privacy, the tranquility, and especially our own pool! We are close enough to walk the beach to both Bucerias and La Cruz at low tide, yet we are far enough away that we don't have beach vendors and crowds. For the tourist experience, Puerto Vallarta is only a half hour south by car. For a quaint beach/surfing town experience, Sayulita is a 20-minute drive north. We couldn't ask for a better location for all that we love in Mexico.
Right on the ocean and the views are amazing! Especially love our private pool!
We very much enjoyed our stay at the casa. It had everything we needed and more. The pool was fantastic. We spent most of our time in it, just soaking up the sun.
Casa De Banderas was a nice place to stay the first time 9 years ago. Thinking the experience would be good, we went there again. This time, we were apparently drugged. I passed out right away and therefore received less of a dose than my wife. That was a saving factor. I woke up to a commotion in the living room. She had been stripped naked. A naked man was also in the Casa with his arms around her. The property manager, a woman, was passed out on the floor foaming at the mouth. I was successful in getting my wife away from the man and kicking him out. We found out later that the man had been in one of the bedrooms, but had not found our valuables in the other bedroom. We barricaded ourselves in the home for the night and also contacted the owners. The owners were completely shocked as well. The next morning the owners refunded our money and we left, never to return. This is not the owner’s fault. We told them in writing that they were not liable. The actions of the property manager are culpable at the least and may have actually been in collusion with what happened. Being apparently targeted for robbery and rape with the possible involvement of the property manager is something we do not want anyone else to ever have to endure. We do not recommend this place to anyone at all. The general area where the Casa is located is also called into question. To learn more about the dangers in the area, visit the US State Department for their travel advisory.
I stayed at the Casa for one month which flew by way too fast. The private pool was the highlight for me as I spent many hours in it. The view was amazing. It was a very quiet place and very relaxing. The kitchen was very well equipped and it was very nice having a welcoming package of food and wine. Having a prepaid phone was also a plus. I would love to stay there again.
This is the second time we have stayed at Casa de Banderas and obviously we like or why go back? Very quiet (except when there is loud music across the bay), private and comfortable. If you are adverse to staying in gigantic condo developments - this is the place to stay in Bucerias.
We were three adults for Christmas week and it was wonderful. The kitchen starter kit was awesome! Thank you so much for that. We used the washer/dryer once. We were in the pool every day. The preloaded cell phone for the taxi was the best! We didn't need a car as we only left for dinner each night. We would like to return here in the future.
Our daily routine- fruit and coffee outside in the morning, watching the bay wake up. Multiple dips in the pool. Reading, painting, studying, exploring, eating good food and sipping good drinks. Savoring the time together. We just returned from another wonderful 2 week vacation at Casa de Banderas, this time celebrating our 40th anniversary. The privacy of the pool, the view and being steps away from the beach, the beautiful home, and the friendly people make this work for us... so much so that we've stayed here several times over the years. The only way I'm able to pry myself out of there is knowing we'll return. The house is tastefully appointed with local furnishings and decor and has all the modern conveniences one needs. The location is close enough to everything we want to do and visit yet just far enough away to enjoy relaxation and privacy. Whenever we had a question about something, Vanessa or Allen (sp?) the local property managers were just a phone call away. We've never met the owners, (only emailed and conversed by phone) but it's obvious they put time and effort into making this place very special. Muchas gracias!
We had a wonderful 2 weeks in this condo. Everything comes as advertised. Lots of good quality towels, sheets and pillows. The beds are typically hard Mexican style which was fine for my wife but I prefer softer which was accomplished by putting a lounge cushion under the bottom sheet; I slept like a baby to the sound of the breaking surf. Kitchen was fully equipped - lots of utensils, plates, appliances etc. No automatic dishwasher but that was no big deal for us. Propane grill was super hot - great for burgs and steaks. Garbage and recycle picked up promptly. Swimming pool nice and clean with several inflatables available for relaxing in the pool. The property manager Vanessa was prompt and efficient. The housekeeper Annali was excellent; I'd hire her in a NY minute. If we return to Bucerias/La Cruz we will definitely stay here again if available.
Rocky tide pools in front at low tide. Large sandy beach and swim area next door. Thirty-minute beachfront walk southeast to downtown shops in quaint Bucerias. At low tide, walk 20 minutes northwest up the beach to the fishing village of La Cruz and beachfront restaurants. Archaeological site with petroglyphs are an hour drive north, with great nearby beaches to visit. Twenty-minute drive to surfing town of Sayulita, ten minutes further to fabulous beach at San Francisco. Locals call it San Pablo.
