Why Jerry Monte or Irene chose Downtown (Viejo Vallarta)



What makes this villa unique


Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Jerry,

We had a wonderful time at Casa Maricielo. Leo and David cooked us many meals. Once we had one meal from them, we were hooked! Leo was great, we would give her money for groceries and she would itemize it all and bring back any change.

The house was awesome. You can’t beat the view and the staff was excellent!

Thanks for everything!! Until next time!

Amazing! So happy to have stayed here!

  • 5 of 5

We searched far and wide for a place to stay with 7 people for a 5 day group vacation and we found the perfect spot! The villa is very centrally located perched atop the center of town. The views are absolutely breathtaking, not just of the ocean, but also of the jungle filled hills behind the house and surrounding area. All of the bedrooms are huge, and there is a ton of space to spread out throughout the property. The food was spectacular, we had 2 meals a day prepared for us and they were all fabulous and hassle free. Two of us celebrated our 30th birthday's while we were here which was amazing. The staff helped arrange for a boating adventure with fishing and snorkeling one day (highly recommend), and arranged for 3 masseuses to come to the house and give us all massages and manicures another day (which was very affordable) on the open air balcony overlooking the ocean. The roof pool was the perfect temperature and we spent a good deal of time there. Not one complaint, everything was perfect for us. Trying to find an excuse to come back!!!!

One thing to note as others have mentioned, the views makes it well worth it, but the house is on top of a somewhat steep hill. This was fine for our group, but note that for those not able to trek up the hill it is very easy and cheap (like 60 pesos) to get a quick cab ride up the hill from the surrounding areas.

Truly wonderful! Thanks!

Beautiful home, difficult owner

  • 2 of 5

This is a beautiful home located minutes from the historic center of puerto Vallarta. The house is beautiful, with views of the ocean in every room. However, our experience working with VRBO and this owner was terrible and I will not plan to use VRBO again. The house has a capacity to sleep 11 people, with another "casita" across the pool deck that sleeps an additional three for a total of 14 people maximum. Several days before our trip, we needed to add one additional person, for a total of 9 guests, for the nights we had already planned to stay. The owner lied about the capacity of the house, saying that it would only sleep 8, and asked me to pay a price that was three times what we had originally agreed to. When I spoke with VRBO about the capacity and rate, they told me that the owners are in their rights to change rates whenever they want to and that this was allowed. The owner ended up calling the house during our stay and verbally abusing the guest who answered the phone and saying that we were trying to cheat him, which was not the case. Although the house was beautiful, in a perfect location, and with excellent staff, I would not recommend working with this owner or platform.

Owner's Response: Regarding Rebecca C ""OUR REVIEWS SPEAK FOR THEMSELF'" This guest caused problems for us and the staff. She tried to sneak in extra guests without paying for their stay. The staff alerted us and she was mad that she had to pay for her extra guests. Sincerely, Jerry

Casa Maricielo was magical!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Maricielo was beautiful!!! We wanted a cultural experience for our large family and that is exactly what we got! The house is more like a small chateau than a villa. With floor after floor of enchanting rooms and art then a view that is definitely the BEST in the entire area. Our host communicated well! The cook and her son were very kind and helpful, they got our groceries and wine for us. And the meals were simply delicious!! The maid went above and beyond every day, she even did our laundry and we have 7 kids! We would definitely recommend Casa Maricielo and will probably stay again.
