Overview

About the property

Villa 3-bedrooms-3 baths (Sleeps 6)-swimming pool and beautiful garden.

Casa Verano is a year round private, secure vacation villa. Located in the zona de oro district, on the south side of Bucerias. Visitors come in the high season to escape the winter cold, & in the summer & fall months for world class, deep sea fishing. Casa Verano is just two blocks from the beach. It is an authentic Mexican-style villa., PERFECT for 2 couples, as it is has a gorgeous upper level with a separate entrance from the main level. The villa will accommodate 6 people. We do not separate the villa into upstairs or downstairs. When you rent, the entire villa is yours to enjoy.

The home was originally built by a very well-known figure. One of the original Marlboro man models. The main level has a beautifully furnished master bedroom with a window air conditioner, & master bath with king size bed. Another smaller main level furnished 2nd bedroom with ceiling fan and a double bed for smaller adults or kids. A main area bath, with full kitchen, dining area, & sitting area. Walk out of the front doors to a lovely, private, patio area with your own private swimming pool. It also has a small courtyard in back.

The upper level has a beautiful fully furnished bedroom with queen sized bed, ceiling fan, 2 sliding glass doors, a gorgeous large bath, an outdoor balcony patio kitchen with wet bar & refrigerator. It also has a lovely decorated, rounded covered balcony area that overlooks some of the most breathtaking sunsets found in the world. The upper level also has a sun balcony off of the bedroom overlooking the rear courtyard.

The garden areas are beautifully landscaped with palm trees, other tropical plants, and trees. Night time at Casa Verano is very romantic with the exterior wall lighting adorning the private swimming pool and the patio area. The property is completely walled and gated for additional privacy and security, with drive in gate for secure car parking, and a walk in gate.

All of this, yet a 1/2 block walk to a taxi stand & 3 block walk to bus routes. A large new grocery/department store, Chedraui is a 3 block walk from the villa, where you can get everything you need. Along with many more ammenties within 1 to 2 blocks. Very easy access to and from Puerto Vallarta and all towns north and south. Nice-level walking distance to the town of Bucerias, with convenience stores, restaurants, and shopping all along the way. The Flamingos Golf Course is just a five-minute drive. Snorkeling, whale watching, surfing, and deep-sea fishing, a water slide park with lazy river, and dolphin encounter are only minutes away. Gardener and twice a week maid service included. All of this and right in the heart of the Mexican Riviera Nayurit!

FOR FIRST TIMER'S TO THE MEXICAN RIVERA!- Bucerias, Puerto Vallarta, & the entire area, can easily be described as 'old' Mexico. Most visitors love old Mexico & come back to vacation in the area, year after year. The terrain around the entire area of the Mexican Riviera, is very tropical & jungle like.

For a more enjoyable vacation. Upon reserving your time at Casa Verano, we will send you a map of locations & sites, & things all the great things to do & see while you're visiting the Mexican Riviera.

REDUCED rental rates from May 15th until Dec. 14th. During the low season, we offer discounts for monthly reservations. Just e-mail to inquire about low season, and longer rental period discounts.

To our prospective vacationers, please read this entire web-site page to make certain that this villa is appropriate for you and your group. Policies, regarding age of children, payments, etc. prior to reserving. It you have any questions at all after reading, feel free to contact me. I have had a few requests from prospective future vacationers to view the villa prior to reserving, while they were in Bucerias during the high season. Please understand that we do not feel it is appropriate to interrupt other vacationers privacy in order for others to view the villa, and there is no full time property manager at the villa that can meet you to view the property. The pictures on this web-site are exact as to how the villa looks. If you have specific questions about the villa, I will be happy to answer them. If I feel the villa would not work for your group, it's not unusual for me to refer other places that would be more appropriate. If you have anyone in your group that has physical disabilities please make certain you contact me prior to reserving. Also if you are a larger group, and you want to be close to each other, let me know because my neighbors own 2 bedroom condo's just 1/2 block down,, so your friends or family members would be able remain in the same area, while you stay in Casa Verano.

Thanks so much for your interest in Casa Verano. We hope to hear from you soon.

About Karol Scott

Bob and I have always loved to travel, and we enjoy the ocean. IWe scuba dived in many locations in our younger years, on vacations, and spent time in different countries doing so. We love Latin America. When we visited Bucerias back in the mid-1990's, it fit us like a glove and we fell in love with it immediately, and wanted to semi-retire down there. Then Casa Verano came along. We have kept the villa, and maintained it over the years. We have Carlos and Ya Ya who have been with us for years who maintain the property, and now that we're older we love to take the grandchilren down with us. They love it too.

Karol Scott purchased this villa in 2000

Why Karol Scott chose Nayarit

We like to rent out to like minded vacationers who are looking for a private secure villa that are a little more independent, and those who seek tranquility and quiet after a busy day of having fun, or just like to stay around and enjoy the beautiful weather and tropical plants. Our intention is to rent it out enough during the year to help pay for the expenses on the villa.

The conveniences of grocery shopping and easy access to about everything is a real plus in Bucerias today. Casa Verano is located in the center of all of that. BTW--you will see restaurants, etc. just below the map, that indicate distances from the villa to places like Karon's place, Mark's bar and grill that are not correct. The map shows them farther than they actually are. I have called VRBO to adjust the distances, and they can't, apparently it is a GPS problem.

What makes this villa unique

Tranquility--very relaxing. Lots of fun to enjoy with family and friends. Great for couples as there is a lower and separate upper level giving a little separation. When you rent you rent the entire villa, it's all yours to enjoy. Centrally located--easy walking distance to everything.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Karol, we're back home and I wanted to email you to tell you how much we appreciate you fitting us in at the very last moment, as our other reservation was cancelled by the owner of a property within the last few days prior to our arrival. I was frantic, and didn't think we would be able to find anything, and you made it happen. The villa is absolutely beautiful, we enjoyed it all. Be assured I will be recommending Casa Verano to everyone I know.

Peaceful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We were down at Casa Verano with our two children and my parents for Thanksgiving. We couldn't have been happier with the privacy and wonderful location. The gardens are immaculate and we had a hard time getting the kids out of the newly refurbished pool area. The beach was a easy 5 minute walk away and it was very convenient that there was an outside shower at the villa to rinse the beach sand off. The three bathrooms worked out perfectly for our family and we felt our bed to be very comfortable. We found a great water park towards Puerto Vallarta that was crowd free. We also had a great time on the recommended ATV tour and we were fortunate to see whales on a deep sea fishing trip. Overall, we really enjoyed the villa and would recommend it to our friends.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review, and thanks for reserving Casa Verano again! November is a great month to be down there. I don't know where you had your Thanksgiving dinner at but Mark's Bar and grill puts on the best Thanksgiving day "gormet" dinner ever! I It's fabulous. Very romantic with lit candles and well worth the price. I am certain he does a fantastic Christmas day dinner too. Reservations are required for the holiday season, so it's important for guests to reserve in advance. You've already seen Mark's on your walk to town, it's just 4 blocks from the villa. The weather can be beautiful in November, and we're seeing more and more vacationers during this time period. The fall months are the best for fishing, and that's when you can catch the big ones. Many are seeing whales in November and more come in every month thereafter. Thanks again--and we hope you'll be back this coming year!

Close to everything in Bucerias

  • 5 of 5

We usually stay in Puerto Vallarta or further South and decided to explore Bucerias. What a great town and Casa Verano is a great place to stay. Two blocks from the beach, quiet cobblestone road neighborhood, and great restaurants within walking distances. We even found a wine bar! If you want to cook at Casa Verano there is a store 3-4 blocks away where you can find everything you need. If you need a taxi there's a taxi station a block away. Convenient to everything.

We did a lot of walking/exploring around Bucerias so the pool was a welcome sight when we returned to the house. The front yard by the pool had enough foliage that if you wanted to stay outside but not in the sun you had plenty of places to sit.

If you're looking to get out and explore Bucerias and the surrounding areas in the North and have a nice home to come back to, this is a great place to stay. We'll be back.

An Excellent Choice -- Remarkable Value

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Verano for two months -- February and March of 2017. We're frequent travelers, both retired, and we've used VRBO.com for various other stays in Mexico, Europe, and the US. Casa Verano was an excellent choice -- it's secure, quiet, and two blocks away from the Pacific Ocean. We would typically walk to the beach most mornings, find something to do nearby during the middle of the day, then enjoy Happy Hour at our own pool in our front yard. It really is outstanding to enjoy the breezes off the ocean at sunset, and most days we could actually hear the waves as we enjoyed our drinks. The owner provides maid service twice a week, and the landscaper is there every day. Both are excellent, friendly people. A half dozen really good restaurants, beachfront and otherwise, are within six blocks. Casa Verano is gated, and has its own wall for privacy. It's a very quiet neighborhood, and we always felt very safe. The owner (in the US) responds quickly if any minor questions come up, and all we had were minor questions. It's a great place!

Mexican paradise at Casa Verano

  • 5 of 5

My family & I were delighted with our stay at Bucerias. The villa was very comfortable and clean and has plenty of room for sleeping, relaxing and cooking. The yard and garden were gorgeous and tended very well. We especially appreciated being able to relax at the private pool & patio after returning from the bustle of the town & plaza. The owner kept in touch and there was a gardener and maid who came over several times during the week. I would highly recommend this property.

Room for improvement

  • 2 of 5

First of all the good things - garden and pool area were great - clean sheets twice a week great - lots of hot water , also great ! Proximity to the beach is good as well. Not too far a walk for food etc.

There are however many things that could be done to make this property the gem it could be.

The entire house needs a thorough cleaning - ledges , windowsills , wall hanging in upper bedroom , all very dirty !

The pool towels were all very old , stained , frayed and holey.

While there is a private upper sun deck , there is no furniture on it and it also is very dirty.

The upper balcony furniture is repainted wire mesh , very uncomfortable as there are no cushions and the paint tends to come off on your skin and clothes.

Only 2 lounge chairs poolside , great if there are only 2 of you staying.

There is nowhere in the kitchen for food storage , all shelves filled with decorative tableware ( which also need a good cleaning )

All in all , our group was disappointed in this rental...I hope the owner will take my comments and improve the property for future renters. I , however , will look elsewhere.

Owner's Response: Sue G, Your last and only email to me, and after you had been at the villa for a few days was this: That-You were having a wonderful time at the villa and were wondering if I could borrow more lounge lawn chairs from a neighbor as more people were arriving the next day. My answer was no, but feel free to move them around, if you wanted. There are 3 lounge patio chairs at the villa, along with several other outdoor patio chairs, that are more than sufficient. You mentioned nothing else that is in your review. TO BE CLEAR: Your original reservation was for 4 adults. A few months later you added 2 more adults with an active/curious 1 year old, that I advised against. I mentioned to you that we never accept over 6 people at the villa, and really can't accommodate toddlers or infants at the villa because the swimming pool is close to the front door, making it dangerous for them, and a very nervous vacation for the adults. This info is on our website, and is also in the packet you received. Your review of the villa reflects the anxiety of what happens when there are too many at the villa, and infant/ toddler that has to be constantly watched. Ya Ya is a great maid, and I can't count the number of compliments we have received over the 15 years she has worked for us. I talked to her after reading this review, and she told me there was just too many there, along with to much personal and baby items for her to do any deep cleaning during the 2-times a week she was there. She did a thorough cleaning on the day you arrived, which is always done. She left out older towels knowing that your group would be high demand, but none had holes or were unusable. As far as your other comments, they are all personal preference comments that change from one individual to the next. The villa is very nice and comfortable for the right amount of people, and the absence of toddlers/infants. The villa is not clean enough for babies to crawl and play on the floor on the outer balcony's, nor is it baby-proofed. The floors are all marble, no carpet. We love kids & have a few grand kids of our own. But we not would let them come down until they were 5 years old. As you can see most of the reviews we have had over the years are 4- 5 stars with wonderful comments, from guests who read and listen to my advice. I am sorry you felt the need to write a review like this prior to contacting me with any issues you had, that would have been addressed immediately. Thank You

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Verano was a dream come true, from the moment we entered the secured gate til the moment we left. We were greeted by a beautifully kept garden area, pool and clean accommodations. Karol was always prompt on her responses to all my questions and the welcome packet provided beforehand was so informative, right down to every detail. The location was so convenient, close to the beach, close to the taxi and buses and several restaurants. We enjoyed cooking in the unit too, everything you may need is provided (again details) The pool was a great way to cool off and we really enjoyed the A/C in the masterbedroom. Carolos and Yaya were very courteous of our stay as well, always having fresh drinking water available and around our schedule, we only saw Carlos once during our week long stay. Great memories for our entire family, gracias again for a beautiful experience!

Additional information about rental rates

Additional Guest Fee $8 per person per night

Recently, the Homeaway family which is inclusive of VRBO & Vacation rentals, started charging a travelers service fee on the rental amount that adds an additional 8.9% to the total rental cost. The more expensive your reservation is scales down to less interest for the travelers service charge. In the past few years, all cost & fees for the use of their websites, including their credit card payment database were free to travelers. Owners pay yearly subscription levels for advertising along with credit card fees and charges, and they still do. I apologize for this new Homeaway charge to our vacationers, and I can assure you it was not a decision that owners had any choice in making.

I am giving my customers the option of paying me directly, as was done in the past, prior to Homeaway entering the payments arena. You can pay through Homeaway and their subsidiaries by me attaching the Homeaway payment request to an email, which will include this travelers service charge, OR you can make payment to me directly: If you have a personal PayPal account you can make payment by using our email address at casaverano@gmail.com Or you can request that I send you a payment request directly from PayPal, or you can call me at (719) 332-8342 and I can enter your credit card information on our virtual terminal. We also accept checks or drafts in US funds that are mailed to Karol Scott, 909 S. West St., Woodland Park, CO 80863. If you're mailing a check or draft, make certain to let me know, so I can block out your dates as tentative while awaiting your check. DEPOSITS: If you're staying longer than one week the deposit will be higher than the minimum of $500.00. Thank You
