Casa De Suenos has a fully-equipped kitchen- see listed features. We have plenty of books to read in our library. This one of a kind beach house has exquisite stained glass windows depicting ocean life, breath taking ocean views, and a variety of intriguing, authentic Mexican tile with different themes, native stone floors in the showers, and rich parota woodwork throughout.

The Master bedroom is ocean front and opens to a large private upper veranda-style covered patio with its own seating area. Morning breakfast can be served upstairs or on the downstairs patio. The views are breath-taking. We can see whales and dolphins at play in the bay. We can also watch the local fishermen out in their small boats.

Casa De Suenos is located in the friendly and uniquely quaint village of Bucerias, Nayarit, Mexico. Casa De Suenos is 1 of 8 units, in a private, gated community known as Villas de Playa. Casa De Suenos is 1 of the only 2 beach front, free-stand-alone houses in the Villas de Playa. The beach front side of Villas de Playa opens into breath-taking views of the Beach and Bandaras Bay, which consists of miles of beautiful, golden sands beaches. Villas de Playa is located on the ocean side, across from Bungalows Arroyo, 2nd left entrance after the cross streets of Agustin Madero and Lazaro Cardenas (the ocean front street in Bucerias).

See map link at the 'buceriasmexico' website. The map will help you find small businesses, grocery stores and restaurants along the four main streets that run parallel with the ocean, as well as locate our property.

Bucerias offers a nice change of pace with its 5 miles of very pristine beaches on the Bay of Banderas. “Bucerías” means 'Place of the Divers'. The Bay of Banderas is perfect for wind surfing, swimming, surfing, and any other water sport imaginable, whale and dolphin watching, sunning and shell collecting. Bucerias offers a wealth of “old Mexico flavor and local color” with its wonderful art dealers, food, and a taste of the authentic culture of the Mexican people. Within walking distance of the beach house, there are both upscale and local family restaurants and convenience shops, pharmacies, fresh vegetable markets, craft boutiques, bakeries, and more. Just 6 blocks north of our beach house is El Centro, the center of town. There is where the Santa Dominico Church is located, on the north side of the square, with the ocean on the south. Local vendors sell everything from local crafts, which make wonderful souvenirs, to clothing. The center of town has a beautiful, open public plaza, which hosts many cultural activities, day and night. Need more excitement? There are local hang outs and Puerto Vallarta is just 15 minutes south and offers more restaurants, shopping, marinas, tour excursions, and nightclubs.

Great location, great outdoor space

  • 3 of 5

The location and outdoor space can't be beat. It's on the beach with a tienda and restaurants nearby. The layout of the unit was wonderful - 2 suites upstairs (one with very large outdoor space) and one downstairs. The downside to the unit was that the interior was cluttered, outdated, and could use a deep cleaning. With an HGTV type makeover this villa will be one of the best you could find.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at Casa de Suenos with our family, including our eight-month-old first grandchild. We especially enjoyed the setting on the beach, proximity to the pool, and easy walks to the downtown area and restaurants. The kitchen was well equipped and patio worked well for leisurely breakfasts. The upstairs deck off the master bedroom was incredible for a quiet reading area before the rest of the family was awake. Our son and his girlfriend were engaged on the beach at sunset the first night we were there and it was a lovely place to celebrate. Carol was very accommodating in arranging both our arrival and departure times to meet the needs of differing airline schedules and Felipe checked in with us each day with his beautiful smile to see if we needed anything.

Beautiful Location and Lovely Accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Carol - We had a wonderful retreat at Casa de Suenos! Loved the beach location with easy walk to dining and village. The house was very clean and comfortable - nicely equipped inside and out to meet our needs (even had hand-weights so I didn't miss my exercises and the high-speed wifi was appreciated!). Generous sleeping accommodations for our family of 5, but could fit six and would also be nice for three couples. The outdoor seating on both levels and beach chairs gave us lots of places to enjoy coffee, reading, and resting. Enjoyed friendly encounter with Iguana's on the patio. Great communication and prompt support from both the owner and property manager-Felipe. Definitely coming back!

Wonderful week, and far too short...

  • 5 of 5

Our group of six (my husband and I and our 4 grown children) had a great time at the house. There was a bit of a mix-up upon arrival - our plane was on time, but 2 flights arrived at the same time, so we were late getting to the house, and there was no-one to greet us as I neglected to leave my cell number for the owner/manager. I called the property manager, Felipe, and he arrived at the house within a half an hour to let us in.

The property is gorgeous. They take meticulous care of the grounds and pool. The photos don't do it justice. The ocean is just beyond the property's low gated wall, and the sound of crashing waves and birdsong is something I will never forget.

The home is fairly new, and is in good condition. Our only issue was with the living room seating (and this wasn't a deal breaker). The living room area is quite small and it fit 4 comfortably, but not six. Beds were comfortable. It was nice to have separate A/C for each room, so it could be switched off when it wasn't necessary. The kitchen was well stocked. More water would have been nice, though. The stove was an interesting experience (gas, which we were not used too), but there were instructions (which we did use). The water pressure for the showers was okay. All-in-all, a good rental.

The location was very good. Unfortunately, we visited Bucerias during the very low season, so there were many shops and restaurants closed, and it was too hot to walk and explore during the day. I can imagine that it would be an ideal location during the shoulder or high season when Bucerias is bustling with activity. We knew what we were in for, so we weren't surprised, but I thought that would be worth mentioning. We did walk down the beach a couple of times to Karen's for margaritas and fish tacos. Yum. There is a sport's bar a few blocks away, which gave our kids a place to escape to when they got tired of us old folks. :)

I can't complete this review without mentioning the property manager, Felipe. He was always there with a big smile if we had a request, no matter how small. He wears a lot of hats - property manager, tour operator, concierge. He suggested and booked (at a great rate) a great tour for us (Offroad Adventure with Vallarta Adventures). He arranged for a cab for our group on several occasions when we were unsuccessful. He made sure we knew what cab rates were. I'm not sure how many times I said "ask Felipe".

So fun - didn't want to leave!

Perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

My parents, sister, 2 children and I spent a week at this wonderful home. It had pretty much everything we needed and was very comfortable and safe. The only thing missing in the kitchen was a kettle, but we made do with a pot on the stove. It was great to have bottled water delivered right to the door every other day! The property manager was very friendly and helpful. One of the shower heads wasn't working well, so he changed it within a half hour of us mentioning it to him. The beds were comfortable and it was very nice to have a bathroom for each room. The upstairs balcony gave us amazing views of the ocean and beach…a perfect place for morning coffee:-) The security guard was also very friendly and helpful (quickly jumping up to help carry our groceries in from the taxi). The pool and yard was well maintained and a perfect place to relax at anytime of the day. The pool is shared, but we rarely saw anyone else use it. The location was perfect…close to everything, but quiet and private too. We didn't want to leave…

All one can dream of

  • 5 of 5

The name of the house says it all: Casa de Sueno.

All you might need or want is right there: views, beach, warm weather, nice restaurants, amenities, warm ocean water, nearby activities, sightseeing, everything you see in the pictures and more.

My wife and I spent a week in October 2012 and it was so good that we decided to repeat the experience this October: the second time around was even better.

We love the fact that the house is fully equipped with anything one might need including beach chairs! The kitchen is perfectly equipped, the wireless internet is very fast, the small air conditioners in each room work perfectly, washer and dryer are a godsend. A guest book has absolutely all the information you need to live in the house and to enjoy the surroundings.

The house is in a gated community shared by a few other home owners: it is very clean, well maintained and a security guard walks by every night. The main entrance is on a nice quiet street lined with a few restaurants and bars.

There is a property manager, Felipe, who works nearby and is extremely helpful and responsive: you can just send him an email with any questions or issues and he will be at the doorstep shortly and will take care of any issues while you are out enjoying your vacation.

We rented a car from the local car rental company Gecko and we certainly recommend it. We cannot speak of them highly enough: the owners are americans (or at least they speak perfect english) and are very helpful also as tourist guides! They provide a very valuable (a must in our opinion) VIP service in which they pick you up from the airport and drop you back off when you return the car.

The location of the house is just perfect: Bucerias is a small town away from the crowds of Puerto Vallarta, yet it has all the facilities needed by the average tourist. Within a 10-minute drive you can reach Vallarta Adventures where you can join one of the many tours they offer; we certainly recommend the two we did: Las Caletas and Marietas Islands.

We also enjoyed driving around and ‘discovering’ local villages, beaches, restaurants, and stores.

The selection of restaurants in Bucerias is top-notch, most of them are within walking distance and they are all mentioned in the well stocked cache of tourist information in the living room.

We’ll certainly would love to come back and we recommend it to anyone else.
