Overview

About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Our Villa is a little gem tucked by the ocean, where you walk out your front door to sand and sea. You can hear the ocean roar!

Built by an architect owner, it features a spiral staircase that winds up 3 floors past stain-glass windows to a quaint domed ceiling. It has classic Mexican floor tiles throughout. This is a true beach house (not just another condo or hotel room). We offer air conditioning, a Manager, and a cook (on request).

Lovely seashells cover wall lights, and the decor is colorful and relaxed, with modern clay pots, wall art, and festive fabrics and bedspreads - vintage Mexico. You will enjoy all the flavors of authentic Mexico with your stay.

The Villa is 3 bedroom and 3 bath sitting on the romantic Camarones beach. Each bedroom is on a different level of the home. The master has a king bed, walk-in bathroom and ocean view. The top floor bedroom has a queen bed and ocean view along with its own bathroom. The smaller main floor bedroom has two singles that can be pulled together to form a small king and its own bathroom. The bathrooms feature authentic Mexican tiles. Just open your bedroom window to listen to the sound of the waves slapping the beach.

We offer two large sundecks -- one off the living room and the other off the upper bedroom. They are great spots to watch people on the beach, wildlife and boats sail by! Have a drink or a meal and enjoy a gorgeous sunset!

There is a small swimming pool (10'x15') to relax in and have a drink. The kids love it.

The Villa has a full service kitchen, dining area, and a living room that has French doors opening onto a patio/balcony overlooking the beach and ocean. If you dropped a sea shell off of the balcony, it would land right in the sand! Also a small dipping pool sits on the balcony - perfect to refresh. Sunsets from the living room or the patio are unforgettable!

One of the best features about the home is its location. The Villa sits on the Camarones beach, one of the nicest in Puerto Vallarta. Just walk out the front door and you are on the beach. Many nice hotels share this special beach. (In fact, the Sheraton is about 3/4 of a mile north of us.) Also, the home sits in the heart of the City and is a short 3-minute walk to the most lively nightlife - shopping, restaurants, clubs (and even grocery store) on the city's oceanfront boardwalk,

This is a great home, in a great location and at a great price. We know you will be happy with your Mexican vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Casa Nicte is a fantastic Mexican vacation rental.



Joel the manager was very informative and only a phone call away if we needed him. And Marta the maid was exceptional and eager to please and to help us with anything that we needed.



Thank you John and Mark for renting out this little gem in Puerta Vallarta. It was perfect for us and the Mexican ambiance was exactly what we were looking for.



It is located right on the beach with the sand only about 10 steps away and the ocean may be 30 steps away, depending if the tide was in our out...and the Malacon is only 2 blocks away.



Overall the place was perfect and we look forward to staying there again when we go back to PV.



This was the first time we rented a villa/house on our vacations. We usually stay at an all inclusive resort. Casa Nicte is like our own non-inclusive resort and we will stay there again. It's quiet, peaceful and a great way to relax with the sound of the ocean in the background.

Great location and ocean view.

  • 4 of 5

Casa Nicte is very comfortable and convenient. We felt safe there. Gorgeous ocean views and relatively quiet. It is nice to have Marta come daily to freshen the place. Staying in Cinco de Deciembre was the best. We were within walking distance of so many cultural opportunities.

Great location, nice house!

  • 5 of 5

The location of the Casa is perfect, within walking distance of every thing you'll need. It's just blocks from the grocery store, which was important to us. It's 20 steps to the beach (I counted) with stunning views of the bay. The house is older, but has a certain classic charm. The house has lots of stairs, not an problem for us but could be for someone unable to navigate them. Having the bedrooms on different levels was perfect for our family, just enough separation for each little family unit. There was a minor issue with the hot water heater, but it was dealt with quickly and did not inconvenience us. The owners are very responsive, kind and helpful. The Casa allowed us to have a relaxing family vacation in beautiful Pto Vallarta. Exactly what we needed!!

Great home, location, owners and staff

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Nicte for 5 days May 3rd thru 7th 2016. I've been visiting Puerto Vallarta since 1972 and have now found my new place to stay

each time. Located just 2 blocks from the Malecon and resting oceanfront right on the beach this 3 story villa with a bedroom and on suite on each floor

leaves plenty of space for privacy when you want it. The living room is comfortable with a view of the ocean and the view from the kitchen sink is the same.

The private dipping pool is larger than what I anticipated from having seen the pictures. There are restaurants within a 2-3 minute walk and the large supermarket is only 2 blocks away. I thought I might have a hard time sleeping anticipating a thumping bass sound from the nightlife, but all I heard was the waves breaking on the beach. Marta arrives each day to clean and share her upbeat personality. She cooked a birthday meal for my friend by buying a 6.5lb red snapper at the market to go along with salad, veggies, etc.. She is a treasure. She speaks English well but allowed me to practice my Spanish most often.

The owners John and Mark take away any anxiety one might have in setting up the rental, including having someone waiting at the airport to take you to their villa. My opinion is you can't find a better location in Puerto Vallarta as you won't need to take a bus or cab unless you're going on an activity. Thanks John and Mark for your hospitality and taking care of all the little things that make such a big difference in enjoying a vacation.

One of the best vacation homes we've rented

  • 5 of 5

Casa Nicte is a super rental. Location is the best! The home and amenities included are excellent. The hospitality of the owners and helpfulness of the manager and house cleaner were beyon our expectations.

The finest compliment we can pay is that we have every intention of returning!

Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Casa Nicte and we absolutely love it. The location is 2nd to none, we love being able to walk anywhere and everywhere. The house is beautiful and meticulously clean. Our favourite part was being able fo sit on the patio area and people watch, grab a cold one from the fridge, hop into the pool for a cool down, more people watching... all in your own private space. John is excellent to deal with as well, all of our transactions have gone seamlessly. We will be back!!!

Chistmas 2015 at Casa Nicte

  • 5 of 5

My wife and grown son and daughter spent seven nights over Christmas week and had a blast. We have probably stayed at various resorts and houses on the Bay of Banderas ten times (from Punta de Mita to Nuevo Vallarta) over the years, but Casa Nicte topped all of them. The other reviews describe the casa’s location, Marta, Joel, etc, and they are absolutely true – perfect!

What you won’t get at Casa Nicte is the hassle factor which sometimes comes with vacating in this part of the world. The ownership and everyone associated with Casa Nicte were very accommodating and everything was as advertised. That, to me, is worth the price of admission. In the opinion of this engineer, Casa Nicte was a well-oiled machine. In our case, nothing extraordinary happened requiring any intervention, but if it had, I’m sure it would not have been an issue getting a resolution.

So, book your trip at Casa Nicte with confidence, have fun, eat at the best that PV has to offer (or have Marta prepare you something), book some tours/activities through Joel; or just kick back, hang out and cap it off with some amazing sunsets.

Enjoy!
