About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)


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. Whether you’re searching for a quiet romantic retreat, or an evening spent sipping martini’s in a luxurious cabaret lounge, Zona Romantica offers a quieter alternative to the bustle of Nuevo Vallarta and the Marina district.

Muchos Gracias!

Perfect Old Town Accomodation

  • 4 of 5

If you want an accomodation that gives you convenience of beach, restaurants, and shopping all within walking distance, this is where you are looking for. Take in mind there are hills in the said walking distance, but consider that to be a free work out.

This is a charming older building that has really interesting architecture and amazing foliage outside the little patio. The bed is very comfortable and the kitchen has all the amenities that you could want. The apartment is perfect.

The negative reviews below are more than likely some one else’s over expectation of what Mexico should be like. You’re wanting to stay in old town, not an all-inclusive in Nuevo.

Take all the reviews in mind like we did and you will have an awesome time in the Zona Romantica at Casa Tucan.

Many thanks to our hosts, Rob and Daniel, we hope to stay with you again.

PV classic

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little unit in a classic Vallarta building. Photos are very accurate of the unit. While not high-tech and polished, perfectly functional and everything worked, VERY comfortable for two people. You can tell the owners have actually spent time in the unit because of the niceties you don't always get in a rental -- collection of books and cds; in addition to basic dishware things like a pitcher, cheese grater, lime squeezer in kitchen; hangers in closet; bedside reading lamps (on BOTH sides of bed). I believe this is the only one-bedroom side unit that has a balcony which was really nice. The bed was comfortable, very firm but that is WAY better than a saggy worn out mattress. As has been said, Jose Luis and the housekeeper Angelina do a great job taking care of the building and renters.

There is noise from nearby construction projects, but this is the current case anywhere in Romantica, Amapas, and much of Conchas Chinas, there is really no way around it. The only thing I would have liked was better curtain coverage of the bedroom window -- not for privacy, as people cannot really see in, but to darken the room to sleep late if you wanted.

Overall, we would return in a heartbeat.

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,
