Vacation on the Beach Casa Vista Bonita - a Private Paradise

Bedrooms 2
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Duplex, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Casa Vista Bonita is a charming, oceanfront, duplex with two bedrooms, and two bathrooms each featuring incredible views of the Bay of Banderas. Arched brick ceilings and exposed brick walls in the upper unit create an airy feel. The living room has sliding doors that open to the terrace catching lovely tropical breezes and looks directly out to the pool, beach and ocean. The walled yard with a sparkling cobalt pool, barbeque, parking and garden areas leads to the beach where there is a fenced lawn and garden where you can put Casa Vista Bonita's umbrella and lounge chairs. Enjoy this area also for sipping your morning coffee and tropical drinks at sunset or take the few stairs to the beach for a swim! It is the perfect place to sunbathe and watch the waves, pelicans, dolphins and whales.

Casa Vista Bonita is located near the center of Bucerias and an easy walk to the best restaurants, galleries, and shops. The seven mile white sand beach is great for walking, and the gentle surf is very safe for wading and swimming.

We have extensively remodeled the upper unit, adding an additional bedroom and bath, laundry and a large view terrace. The lower unit is now complete with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, laundry and a large terrace. The lower unit can be seen on at...homeaway...252030. Both units are designed for optimum privacy. In addition we have incorporated air conditioning in all bedrooms, a barbeque area and a beautiful cobalt blue pool with a child friendly section! Please e-mail or call if you would like to see more new pictures! We have prodigy wi-fi service available and have added a pool heater for our winter guests! I am sure it will exceed your expectations!

New....a whole house water purification system...

Guestbook comments from the owner

"...I stayed at your place 2 summers ago I think it was '03. I had lost a way to contact you after the trip. Obviously since I'm writing to you this has stuck with me. I never had a chance to say how thankful I was for letting us stay there, we had such a wonderful time. Really one of those truly amazing moments that you look forward to, especially living in Seattle, and hope for over and over. Just looking at your ad is really making me itch. If not this summer then in summers to come. Again thank you, thank you so much.. Joe R"

Fantastic place!!

  • 4 of 5

I would easily give this condo 5 stars as it is an exceptional place to stay in Bucerias. It is immaculately clean. the pool is fantastic. The view is unbelievable. The bedrooms are very comfortable. The beech is right there steps from your door. I do have to point out one small negative that could be a deal breaker for some. There is a restaurant right behind the condo and it is a bit noisy every night til about 10 or so. If you are the type to go to bed early then maybe this is not the place for you. And unfortunately, Friday nights they have a band that plays until 2am. For us, not so much a problem as we usually don't go to bed much before then. Just be aware of this and if it doesn't bother you then by all means stay here. It is fabulous!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comment, most of our guests love the music, but I plan to close in the openwork decorative brick wall and and this will solve any noise problem. The neighbors are Very respectful and the 2:00 music was an event about 2 blocks away....there is a curfew, unfortunately there are disrespectful people around.

Wonderful Vacation - Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the top suite for one week with another couple and were very comfortable. It had all the amenities we needed, was clean, quiet and well maintained. The grounds crew came at least twice to take care of watering etc and the pool was also kept pristine. The cleaning staff also came once, mid-week. The a/c in the bedrooms worked terrific and the new water filtration system seemed fine. A friend of ours rented the bottom suite so essentially we had the place to ourselves (which I would recommend if possible but is not necessary). We ate breakfast and lunches in and barbecued one night but mostly ate out in the evenings as the location is fantastic and we know of several great restaurants nearby in Bucerias. We went to the beach a couple of days but also found if you opened the gates in the afternoon the breeze came in and we could lay by the pool and watch the awesome kite surfers! We will definitely be back again to the Casa Vista Bonita...

Amazing Time

  • 5 of 5

The place was excellent! It felt like home right away. The view was excellent the weather was very hot and only one day of rain. Bucerias is a nice little town the people are friendly and helpful and it was easy to get around. We didn't have a car (would next time) so we took the bus and taxis everywhere and it was fun. I would stay there again in a heart beat. Thanks Barb for letting us stay in your lovely home.

Loved It

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the condo one week this June and loved it. The condo if fully equipped including Wi-Fi and Satellite TV (with a huge range of Canadian and American channels). The AC in the bedrooms worked perfect and was necessary in June for sleeping. The beds in Mexico can be brutal, but the ones in the condo are really comfortable. The upper deck, pool and grounds are immaculately kept. Dealing with Barb was so easy and she takes MC and Visa which simplifies paying deposits and final payments. The only downside to this condo is it’s so popular you have to book far in advance!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at the Casa twice now, both times before the remodel and loved it. Can't wait to visit the remodeled version because the place was wonderful before, truly the ideal vacation spot. Beautiful, peaceful and romantic, if that is what you want, while located in a “happening” quaint little town, which has everything to offer. Great activities, restaurants and shopping all just steps outside your door. The location is ideal, close to everything while at the same time offering that remote feeling of being on one's own island. The views and the sunsets are breathtaking. The home is well cared for with nice attention to details.

  • 5 of 5

I and my husband had a most wonderful time at your casa in May 2004. It was clean, on the water, no pool at that time, but the price reflected that. I and my husband have certainly considered doing it again. I can most certainly say that it was the most wonderful trip of my life. Easy to contact the owners or attendants. There is a lot to do in the world but I must say that I would do that trip again. Thanks soooo much for your wonderful hospitality. Teresa Mosbauer
