About David and Karen Colwell

David and I grew up in Minnesota where living on one of the more than 10,000 lakes has been our good fortune. When looking for a vacation property living on the water in a warm climate was our priority. We found a dream location here on the beach in Bucerias.

We looked at property in Honolulu but opted for Mexico because of the friendliness of the culture, wonderful climate and reasonable flight duration & fares.

We vacationed in Puerto Vallarta many times and when the grandchildren came along we rented villas in the Bucerias/La Cruz area. During the final days of one of our trips we looked at some was love at first sight when we saw this casa. During the last 4 years we have added 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and made many other improvements. Each year Casa Coco acquires a new feature and becomes more comfortable and beautiful.

David and Karen Colwell purchased this villa in 2005

Why David and Karen Colwell chose Nayarit

Casa Coco is a place of extraordinary beauty...the blue Sierra Madre mountains surround the bay and brightly colored tropical flowers and coconut palms surrounding the villa. We never tire of the views and nothing is more pleasurable than walking out of the casa onto the beach for a stroll or a swim. We have had such memorable times with family and friends, sitting under the palapa with a morning coffee, watching the Whales and Dolphins or playing board games & cards. We also enjoy watching the cruise ships slip out of port at night and head out to sea...and of course the sound of the waves from the bedroom windows is always so relaxing.

What makes this villa unique

We're within an easy walk of some of the finest restaurants and shops in the Puerto Vallarta area not to mention being located directly on one of Mexico's finest beaches. We are so grateful for the memorable times we have had entertaining family and friends as well as being able to share our little piece of Paradise with so many amazing rental guests

Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 rented the Casa Coco in April 2016 for 10 days. We live in Canada & was our first time going through vrbo. We can't say enough about how amazing it was to deal with Karen. We contacted her directly at her home & she was so informative & answered all of our questions. She has compiled an amazing book with all the information you'll need for the house & the area. When we arrived at the house we were absolutely stunned. This house is more beautiful than the pictures could ever show. Everything is not only clean & very well maintained but also has every thing you would need for a fabulous holiday. Right from floaty chairs for the pool, kids toys for the beach, kayaks, life jackets, every kind of book you could ever want, movies,amazing wifi....& tons more.

Our family loved this house, we had 8 adults & our 5 year old granddaughter. Every one had their own space & plenty of family time in the amazing pool area, large living room, 3rd floor lounging area & stunning ocean patio.

We had Lupita make our first nights was delicious.

The house manager is a very nice fellow, also very helpful & full of information.

We also loved the area....Bucerias is a great place...lots to do & see

We would highly recommend renting this house & Lupita's meals.

We hope to one day return.

Thank you Karen for making our family holiday AMAZING.

Casa Coco Paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family group that does a vacation most years in Mexico. We have stayed other places and found Casa Coco to be by far the most amazing place we have stayed.

We could not believe the beauty of the home, pool area, bedrooms, sitting areas, etc... We spent our days in the pool or walking on the beach. So lovely!!!

Our family would recommend this home hands down to anyone that would like to try renting a house in Mexico. By the way Bucerias is amazing.

Everything went so smoothly.

Thank you to Lupita for our arrival day meal. It was wonderful! What a wonderful way to start our vacation.

Our family of 12, (ages 9 to 80 yrs) had the pleasure of renting Dave & Karen's beautiful home last week and what a joy it was! We couldn't have asked for more and the teenager's and the young children had such a blast in the ocean with the Kayak and 5 or 6 Boogie boards that were provided . We bought fresh shrimp from the local's that were netting the shrimp everyday along side the home and walked the long beach down to Fat Boy's Restaurant, $14 & $16 US massages on the beach and went to Buzzo's bar right across the street a few times. There are also many restaurants along the beach. Lupita (the housekeeper) made us a couple of meals that were beyond our expectations and I highly recommend that you take advantage of this amenity for a very inexpensive price. You won't be disappointed. Every room in this home is exactly like the pictures shown, all facing the ocean for a perfect view. It is so spacious and the kitchen is well equipped with every imaginable gadget, many blenders, pot's and pans, utensils and plenty of dinnerware and glassware. We thoroughly enjoyed the laid back atmosphere of this home and would highly recommend this to everyone while staying in Bucerius.

Karen and Dave were very accommodating to our every need, Kim (the property manager) visited us a couple of times to make sure all was going as expected and Lupita, I can't say enough about her. She went along doing her daily service and super nice to work with. (Karen, she is GREAT!). Before renting this home, I read thru all the reviews and couldn't find anything negative and our experience was all positive as well. We certainly made a good choice on this home. Oh, the beds were all super comfortable as well. Thank you, thank you Karen and David. we loved it there.

Wonderful venue for family experience

  • 5 of 5

I really don't have words to express how enjoyable our time at Casa Coco was. I have, for years been of the belief that I'd rather give my family wonderful experiences and memories over material gifts. My intro to The Casa was from a good friend who took his family there. Upon presenting this destination to my family (three daughters and their husbands) early in 2015 we didn't take long to set this into motion which largely depends on the school schedules of my four grand children. Once there was agreement on timing I contacted Karen regarding getting on the calendar. Karen is most enthusiastic, honest and helpful. The date was set,,,November 5, 2015 for an eight day rental. Seemed like an eternity into the future.

Our plans grew and became firm. I arrived in Bucerias one day early and was able to "supply up" and get ready. Lupita helped me set up a "Margarita Station" so when my arrived we jumped right in to Mexico mode. All the beautiful bedroom/bathroom units are beautiful and I had my daughters "draw straws" for first pick. Very fun exploring the rooms with a margarita in hand. The room selection process went well.

Having Lupita available was an absolute blessing. She cooked six of the eight nights we were there which made it special for my daughters who could relax and totally enjoy everything. I feel extremely blessed to be able to provide this adventure for them and consider it a gift to myself to have my family under one roof for this time, soaking up the conversation and laughter. My grand daughters (11, 12 and 13) were in the ocean or the pool for at least twelve hours every day,,,for real. My son in law who runs a very successful business and is used to staying in great places told me that The Casa is the best place he has ever stayed. We also loved having a few beers and shots at Buzzos Bar across the street from the Casa. What a great local flare!!! We took cabs up to Sayulita twice for surfing. Great, authentic place. The very best was waking up to the crashing waves, drinking coffee with my sons in law and simply hanging around. When I asked my grandson "what would you like to do tomorrow?" he responded that he just wanted to stay home at the Casa ad do what we did today. When's the last time you heard that from a 15 year old boy? Just the answer I wanted to hear.

Well, I hope you get my point. This is a perfect place for a wonderful experience if you like sunshine, warm ocean water, total comfort, great food and the gift of time.

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 9, spanning 3 generations, there to celebrate my husband's 70th.The littlest ones were ages 2,4 and 6. The week was a time of togetherness, laughter and fun. We decided we were happiest staying put at Casa Coco, where we could and did swim daily, kayak, walk the beach, walk to town, watch sailboarders, play games (nightly), watch videos, read and relax. The wifi worked well. The rooms and grounds were lovely. The beds very comfy. The video and book collections extensive. The pool toys a plus. Casa Coco has character, which made it a delightful place to stay. We ate in town a few times, but decided we preferred to have Lupita cook evening meals. That way the kids could play on the patio while we lingered over her wonderful meals. She was a calm efficient presence. It all went so very well. We all returned home refreshed and relaxed, knowing this trip will be remembered, relived and cherished for a very long time.

Amazing Vacations!!

  • 5 of 5

I dare say that this review of Casa Coco is LOOOOONG overdue to Karen (my apologies!!)... I have vacationed (with family and friends) at this amazing beachfront house 3 times over the past 8 years or so, and have never been disappointed!

The pictures on VRBO do this property no justice, as it is simply breath-taking in person! Karen, as well as the property staff, have been nothing but gracious and hospitable during each of our stays. Every time we leave, we can't wait to go back!

We have historically traveled as a group of 8-10 and we have never felt overcrowded in the house, and the beach and pool areas are always immaculately kept.

We were hoping to get to Casa Coco again this year, but it's looking like it may not happen until 2016... So I envy those who are able to go in the meantime! I cannot say enough about this property!

Many thanks, again, to you Karen! I look forward to visiting again soon!!
