Space 1,800 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8), ocean view

Location, location, location! Our private detached family home which can accommodate up to 8 guests, is located only 2 1/2 blocks from the beach and features the most awesome out door set up with a private 23' x 19.5' (5' deep) swimming pool.

Every day we look forward to getting up and have our morning breakfast/coffee by the pool or a fun evening BQ. Watch the most beautiful sun set above the ocean from the roof top or take a walk with my daughters to the flea market is always a fun adventure...especially coming back with an ice cream ends the day in beauty!

When I saw the house for the first time in April 2009, I felt in love with the authentic Mexican touch and the openness/brightness of the 1700 sq ft the home has to offer on 2 levels.

This is not just a vacation home...I spend almost 4 1/2 months of the year in Bucerias. As a result, the home is equipped with every thing you need on a daily basis; from cooking/baking a full size meal to beddings/linen, home entertainment, beach toys /swimming pool gears and accessories.

The home has been renovated and All appliances, kitchen, swimming pool, cantera patios, furnitures, beddings, linen etc...are only a couple years old.

The main floor of our home has a very bright and open concept which includes the kitchen overlooking living room/dining room combo with a 3 piece bathroom very convenient for the pool (shower, sink and toilet). A 3rd bedroom is also available at the back of the house with it own full bath and separate entrance.

The upper floor features 2 extra large bedrooms, each with it's own private bathroom and massive amount of built-in closet and storage space. The master has a king size bed and the 2nd bedroom a queen size bed. See all attached pictures...a picture is worth a 1000 words!!

The roof top patio can be accessed from both inside the house from 2nd level or from outside and there's a washer with clothes lines by the main floor back patio.

And finally a quick note on Bucerias. If you are looking for a fun, cute and safe little Mexican town which yet has all the amenities to entertain a full size family...this is the right place for you to vacation. We love the fact that developers haven't taking over all the beaches and the friendliness of all the locals. Bucerias also offers a fun night life with many bars/dance clubs and restaurant...and if this is not enough for the party hards... Puerto Vallarta is only 20 minutes away!

Whether you are a romantic couple, a full family or a group of friends, you will love all the fun and relaxing vacation our home will offer you, the location and the need to rent a car.

About The Owner

Let me introduce my family: My youngest daughter, Maya- Oldest daughter, Meaghan, me and my partner/husband and best friend, Dusty.

I am originally from France and have lived in Canada (Calgary, Alberta for 29 years). I am multi-cultural and can accommodate people in French and English. I personally like to speak to people on the phone as it is much easier to get a feel of who you are dealing with. For security reason, you can also Google my name "Nadine Faule" to get my real estate website, my personal Facebook page and my real estate Facebook page.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Bucerías

I have been selling real estate for 27 years in Canada. As a result, I am very knowledgeable when it comes to good location and good neighborhood. Having a good location in a safe neighborhood was important to me and my 2 daughters. I also wanted a straight location from Canada to Mexico, a single family home (not a condo or townhouse, not a time-share) with a traditional Mexican architecture, a private pool which could accommodate the 4 of us + my extended family and friends. The panoramic ocean and mountain views as well as the walking distance to the beach and all amenities are absolutely fantastic. We are so blessed we found this perfect family home in a very cute, friendly and authentic Mexican town.

What makes this house unique

The house and the pool are totally private. Not having to share the pool or the yard with any one else is ideal. Enjoy being only 1 1/2 blocks from the beach and walking distance to all restaurants and traditional Mexican shops and boutiques is a nice walk at night. Walking to the Bucerias Flea Market with the girls is always a nice and fun adventure, especially when we come back with ice creams!! And finally the sun set, ocean and mountains views, fireworks...we get it all from the roof top patio.

Great Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was great! Stayed here with our 3y, 7y olds and was totally safe and secure. Jamie was over a couple times during the week and addressed anything we needed. The pool would heat up in the morning and then it would let the sun take over in the afternoon for all day perfect temp. Easy to go grocery shopping with the new store down the street. Same friendly people in the streets around the house that were there 2 years ago. Thanks again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Marc for your review and for being the best guest always. I absolutely love to have you and your beautiful family over..... This is your 3rd stay now and hope there will be many more to come. I'm planing on spending time in Bucerias this coming November for at least 4 weeks (2017) to do a bunch of upgrades, especially new AC and the roof top patio....I will send you pictures. Have a wonderful summer and all the best :) Lots and lots of cheers, Nadine and family

Close to beach, groceries, taxis & restaurants

  • 4 of 5

The property listing description is pretty accurate. It is in an excellent location, close to buses, grocery store, beach, taxi stand & restaurants. The owner kept in contact and the property manager was responsive. The property was clean when we arrived, is well maintained and in good condition. The rooftop deck is amazing. One minor quibble... We think at this price point, during extended stays (we were there for a month) perhaps maid service, bedding & towel laundry and bottled water services should be included. Nadine was very responsive to any questions/minor issues we had and easy to deal with. We really enjoyed our stay at the property and recommend it to any family looking for a vacation rental in Bucerias.

Owner's Response: I totally understand the need for reviews, I simply don't understand the need for so much liying. Here is the email I sent you Rob and Anita and the proof you cashed the $200 I sent you via an e-transfer: "Dear Rob and Anita, As mentioned over the phone Rob, please find enclosed a refund of $200.00 via e-transfer, answer Bucerias. I am very sorry about the AC braking down on you at the very last minute as everything was in good working condition through out the entire rental season. It is truly a shame as I am schedule to replace all the units in November. I would like to deeply apologize for the inconvenience it has caused you and your family. I hope you will accept this refund as a proof of good faith on my part. I am wishing you and your family all the best. Kind regards, Nadine Recipient's Name: Rob and anita Amount: $200.00 Confirmation: C0***R8W Status History Date Processing Interac e-Transfer May 10, 2017 Interac e-Transfer Sent May 10, 2017 Recipient Deposited Transfer May 10, 2017 I received 3 reviews, all 4 and 5 stars only 2 weeks before you arrived. Now you're telling me that in a matter of a couple weeks the house is totally falling apart and lack of maintenance....Really Rob?! Just like you lied about the e-transfer, don't you think you are exagerating? I totally agreed with you as far as the AC, I apologised and gave you a $200 refund. It is Mexico, yes, you will find ants sometime in the house. I have never had an infestation of any kind as the house is fumigated regularly....I can prove it by showing you or anyone all the emails between Jaime and I as I am terrified of cocroaches or creppy crawlings. And finally, everybody else has found Jaime very nice and helpful, except you! It really doesn't surprise me now that Jaime couldn't keep up with your DEMAND as you expected him to jump when you called him. Jaime has been working for me for 5 years but also look after other home owners and doesn't live on site. My VRBO page certainly doesn't advertised a housekeeper-it says available upon request at extra cost. I have NEVER told you or anyone housekeeper was included! Jaime comes twice a week for pool even told me that one week he was over 4 times to address your demands. You're talking about termites off the master bedroom wood deck....I don't even have a wood deck off the master bedroom...look at the pictures! The only incident I have to apologize for is the AC, which I did via my email & $200 refund!

Great Bang for your Buck

  • 4 of 5

We were more than pleasantly surprised when we arrived in February. The house was better than advertised. The private pool was fantastic!! Plenty of room and close to everything. Only drawback was the noise from trucks but that was easily remedied by closing the windows at night.

We will definitely plan to stay there again.

Also, Denise was a pleasure to deal with as was Jaime, her manager.

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time visiting Bucerias but our first time renting a house. We were pleasantly surprised, and will always choose this over the resorts for our years to come. The house was clean, spacious, safe, and just what we needed for our group of 6 adults. We especially enjoyed the airy view of the sunrise & sunsets from the rooftop patio. The convenient location was ideal for a short walk to the grocery store, bars/restaurants and our favorite Fat Boys restaurant. The house had all the necessities to make our stay worry free. Nadine and Jamie were both great to work with and extremely helpful!!! Looking forward to our next visit! Salud!

Owner's Response: Kayla, it was such a pleasure to host you and your friends. I am so glad that all of you enjoyed the house and all the benefits of having your own house versus resort staying. Now that you have found your favorite restaurant "fat boy", hopefully will get to have you again soon :) All the best Kayla to you and your wonderful friends. Cheers, Nadine and family.

2017 Feb vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a great visit to Bucerias this Feb.

The house was good with lots of space. There was no need to use the airconditioners, the ceiling fans were perfect. The weather was perfect, hot during the day and cool through the night. Jaime the caretaker was very friendly and speaks very good english.

Swim with the Dolphins, Zip-Line, ATVs. One of my favorite tours is the pirate ship. This tour is the best one for the money and can be for children during the daytime or adults in the evening.

The other tour for the romantic ones is rhyme of the night. Travel by boat to a tiny magical cove, have a romantic diner lit by candles right on the beach and enjoy the most beautiful Mayan show.

Most of my friends in Bucerias are in the tourism industry and they will go above and beyond the call of duty to make your stay as enjoyable as it can be.
