CASA TUCAN is one of eleven suites in the distinctive Villa Blanca condominium, renowned for its organic design by Mexican architect Diego Mendez De La Penas. Variously known as “the Piano Building” or “Vallarta’s Wedding Cake,” Villa Blanca remains one of the most architecturally distinctive buildings in Puerto Vallarta, and is widely recognized for its lush plantings and spectacular rooftop view.

Each unit in Villa Blanca is privately owned, and the building is serviced by a friendly and helpful manager fluent in English. Housekeeping service is included and available Monday - Saturday, and a security guard is present after dark.

CASA TUCAN is a LUXURIOUSLY spacious (MORE THAN 850 sq. ft.!) TRUE 1-BR, 2-Bath suite, perfect for short or long-term rentals! Quietly situated away from common areas.

The unit includes a full kitchen (sans oven), dining area, LR w/2 large sofas (each can sleep 1 adult), Private BR w/King-size bed, and 2 full Baths complete with large tiled showers. CASA TUCAN is a private retreat awash in light, and features its own PRIVATE TERRACE/LANAI, unique among 1-BR and studios in this building..

Additional amenities include the beautiful cooling pool at the building entrance patio, which offers a welcome respite from the glorious Vallartan sunshine. And the rooftop terrace is a haven for quiet sunsets or evening gatherings, offering a spectacular panoramic view of Banderas Bay from Los Arcos to downtown Puerto Vallarta. The rooftop terrace also features a traditional Mexican grill and outdoor bar/kitchen area.

For one of Vallarta’s most glorious beaches, cross the cobblestone Amapas Street, and you're less than 100 steps down to the beautiful Playa Los Muertos, with sand, surf, people-watching and an abundance of beach cafes, including the famous Blue Chairs Beach.

CASA TUCAN is centrally located in the Zona Romantica, and just a short walk to everything the Old Town and Olas Altas areas have to offer, from shopping to clubs and fine dining. Just minutes south of Casa Tucan lay numerous small, secluded beaches, and the area abounds in charming day-trip destinations rife with local color and culture.

Good accommodations and a great location!

  • 4 of 5

This condo exceeded my expectations and I plan to book again.

Upon arrival, I was greeted by the building manager who was attentive to all of our needs. As a bonus, I met the owners who were on their way out.

So about the condo, it was clean, comfortable and located up the hill from Blue Chairs resort. It has two bathrooms and a small kitchen. Familiar white tiled floors and plaster walls. No issues with electrical or space for two people. Noise from the bar was minimal and ended at 11:00pm. The unit does not have a full beach view and it’s located on the side of the building. People walking up the stairs can slightly glimpse into the unit, which is no big deal. There’s also a small pool with icy cold water perfect on the hotter days.

On the rooftop, you have a better city view with a sneak peak into the adults only building. Yes, it's PG.

One thing to note, there's construction across the street but so many parts of PV are being updated. Also, as previously mentioned in a review, the bed is quite firm.

Good price, location and service -- totally worth booking.

Casa Tucan - Zona Romantica

  • 4 of 5

The condo Casa Tucan had a great Mexican feel. We enjoyed our meals on the small but comfortable terrace. The building, Villa Blanca is situated in the heart of old town, with lots of shops, bars and restaurants nearby.

The building manager Jose was great, very helpful and attended to all inquiries promptly.

Unfortunately, the construction project across the street has blocked the view of the ocean from the unit, but the roof top deck still provided great views of PV and Banderas Bay.

Casa Tucan was a bit tired and could use a little TLC, but we enjoyed our time there.

Thanks for the experience,

Sleeping to the Sound of the Pacific Waves

  • 5 of 5

We spent almost two weeks at Casa Tucan at Villa Blanca on the cobble-stoned Avenida Amapas in Puerto Vallarta this holiday (2017). The condo is located across the street from the Pacific Ocean, so access to the beach is immediate. We enjoyed spending time in the property pool, having drinks on the roof overlooking the lovely neighborhood and ocean but most of all, the highlight was the sound of waves crashing on the shore as we slept, the most recuperative thing. The tropical plants surrounding the rooms and property made the location feel secluded although we walked with close access to almost every restaurant or activity that we enjoyed. We snorkeled and did yoga on the beach mornings. We rented a car some days to see the countryside and visit beautiful, antique San Sebastian. We rode the local bus to Boca and the Botanical Gardens. We always felt safe and found the PVans to be most gracious and helpful.

Thank you for a memorable stay in your beautiful corner of paradise!

Lovely spot

  • 4 of 5

Roomy and well located near the beach and the Romantic Zone, with all the equipment you will want. We took the folding chairs to the beach several times. The little balcony is great for eating outside, but the combination of foliage and a condo going up across the street means what little ocean view now exists soon won't. However, you can hear the waves because the area is so quiet at night.

The pool is for ducking yourself, far too small for swimming, and the great rooftop deck needs more shade, but these are minor points. We'd definitely rent there again.

Location, charm, character, great value!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Daniel!

The location, unit and price was perfect for us!

Wanting to be close to this part of the beach without being too much of a hike up the hill was ideal. Although there were only 2 of us in the unit, having 2 bathrooms is a very nice extra! The personal items from books to art to collectables made the unit feel genuine. It had a very pleasant patio table with a tropical lush setting and the Tucan theme was repeated a number of times. While the new modern complexes that have been built over the past few years offer a lot of fresh fancy features, they usually lack the charm of PV, which is what we are attracted to. New construction is just about everywhere in PV, so having a building project across the road didn't seem personally impacting. We will definitely stay here again and refer this unit to friends that visit PV.

(One other thing...when people come to PV, they shouldn't expect cell, internet or cable service to be as reliable as that in the US or Canada. I did have a work project with a deadline that required the internet and I was able to accomplish my delivery.)

Also, the complex staff were very pleasant and helpful! Thanks again!
