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.

Since Bucerias is becoming a popular destination vacation area, November, December, November, December,January, February, & March normally book up several months in advance. Please click on our calendar to see if your desired vacation dates are available, or if your dates are flexible.

For a great vacation with wonderful weather along with the best deep sea fishing season--try the summer & fall months too!

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 Bucerías

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.

Great location. Close to beach, restaurants, shops & transportation.

  • 4 of 5

We really loved staying here. It was the perfect location, spacious, clean and fairly quiet, with the exception of some minor construction at the next door neighbors. The property is nice and we enjoyed having coffee by the pool each morning. We didn't cook a lot but it was handy having a fully equipped kitchen. Probably more space than the 2 of us needed. Perfect for 4. Karol gave great tips and instructions and was very good about communication. Thanks so much! Will hopefully be back!

Fabulous Getaway in Bucerias!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience to VRBO in Mexico and turned out to be a great time! First, the instructions and information page provided by the owners was over-the-top helpful including directions to give to the taxi driver and entry into the villa. Second, the property is very private and secure - we loved stepping out to our private pool and garden in the afternoon to cool off and get ready for evening activities. Third, the area info was great for first timers to Bucerias - we walked all through town morning and evening having a blast. Everything was effortless!

Enjoyed our stay in this older, Mexican-style villa.

  • 4 of 5

This older, Mexican-style villa, which has a good layout, could use updated plumbing and new appointments, but that is probably reflected in its reasonable price. We enjoyed having a very secure house, walled, flower-filled yard, and lovely pool all to ourselves for a month. Gardener and maid were very helpful. King-size bed was comfortable, WIFI was great, and we enjoyed Netflix in the evenings. There is an air conditioner in the master bedroom, but ceiling fans kept us cool. Excellent location: 2 1/2 blocks to beach, 6 blocks to major supermarket (small convenience stores are closer), 1/2 block to taxi service, about 4 blocks to buses that take you up and down the coast, and one block off main street leading to shops and wonderful restaurants.

Owner's Response: Hi Joyce--thanks for your review. The toilet in the main bathroom is now fixed, and I apologize for any inconvenience it caused you. I hope you had a chance to go Chedrauli's which is only 3 blocks from the villa, which is our new large grocery and department store. I think you were mentioning the Mega which is about 1 mile away.

Sweet Mexican Casa

  • 5 of 5

We loved entering into the private, beautiful garden with our own swimming pool! We spent much of each day reading under the shade of banana and limes trees, or floating in the pool which Carlos kept crystal clear. The Casa felt cozy with Mexican charm. We only used one of the three bedrooms, the king bed. We understood beforehand that with the charm of an older Casa came a 10 gallon hot water tank, but we quickly learned how to take efficient showers and it wasn't an issue. We didn't cook beyond making coffee and using the microwave for breakfast and snacks. There are too many really good restaurants in Bucerias to spend time in the kitchen! Yaya did a wonderful job cleaning the Casa twice a week. Both Carlos and Yaya were very kind and always smiling. We felt welcomed and well taken care of. We hope to return next year. Thank you, Karol, for making this cozy Casa available.

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.
