About Wayne Crabbs

Marc & Wayne. Partnered since 1974 and were married 2014 (finally!) We have made PV our second home in preparation for eventual retirement. We live in the Santa Cruz Mountains in Northern California so that PV is a perfect contrast to our type of rural living. We enjoy breaking bread with friends over good food and good wines...and we love our cats!

Wayne Crabbs purchased this condo in 2007

Why Wayne Crabbs chose Romantic Zone

We've traveled to Puerto Vallarta many years until it just started to feel like home. We bought Casa Maria for lots of reasons but mostly because of the location and a neighborhood full of great people and great charm. This is not a place for resort minded vacationers. This is for people who want to have a Mexico experience!

What makes this condo unique

Beach walks. Breakfast on the balcony. Quiet reading. Wonderful nearby restaurants or cooking dinner at home. Garbo's, our local bar and hangout.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Not only is the place more comfortable and beautiful than we imagined but your entire system from the directions to the recommendations is superb. We are so happy here and for example went to Archie's wok tonight and had an excellent meal and are systematically doing everything on your list. Thank you for being who you are! We are having a wonderful first experience in PV mostly do to you.

Beautiful Condo.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Marc and Wayne's condo in early April 2017. The weather was really nice; not cold or hot. The condo is nicely decorated and has everything to make one's stay very comfortable. The location is just a bit outside the tourist area and so it is quiet and private during the day and night - just as we like it. We had the onsite pool to ourselves each time we used it. My girls (ages 11 and 13) loved their room with the separate beds and their own balcony with ocean and pool views. Jose and the onsite staff were helpful and informative. Thanks for a relaxing stay.

Spring break

  • 4 of 5

Dad and two teen sons on a Spring break holiday.

Very good private 2 bedrooms apartment. Comfortable beds. Cool furniture and furnishings...

Apartment is close enough to the beach scene, but quieter for peaceful relaxation indoors or at the pool.

Made several meals in the well equipped kitchen. Shopping for foods convenient. Not sure how we missed the Tacos for two...on us, (rental advert) but we did enjoy eating out at three great restaurants.

Overall, our stay was perfect for us.

Wonderful Stay....Very Homey and a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Maria. It was well equipped and very comfortable ( my back was especially happy to find such a good quality bed)!! We were able to walk everywhere and as a result we got out and about much more often and are in better shape than when we got there. Wayne and Marc were terrific hosts. Everything was well organized and any questions were quickly answered. Jose Luis and his staff at the condo were very friendly and helpful. We'll be back. Thanks for everything!

Casa Maria, Puerto Vallarta

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful space we found ourselves in when we landed at Casa Maria! The space was beautiful and functional and the location amazing - just a hop, skip and a jump from the beach, with access to a great pool and lounge area, too! Jose (the manager) and all the staff were friendly and helpful and the notes from Wayne and Marc were very informative, sharing everything from the best places to eat and shop, to how much we could expect to spend on cab rides. We had a fantastic family vacation and hope to be back some day soon!
