Romantic Beach House -- Breathtaking Views -- Walk Everywhere!

Bedrooms 3
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 1 - 6 nights


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 sunsets and right on the beach!

  • 4 of 5

The owners of this property were extremely pleasant to deal with! Their

housekeeper Marta is a real gem , very helpful and friendly. The Casa

itself is charming, with a very Mexican flavor and we were grateful for

the layout having the bedrooms all on different floors , allowing for more

privacy. The kitchen is fully equiped with everything you'd need. The little

dip pool was very cold but we were grateful for it on those hot days!

The location is convenient for walking as the Malecon is only a few blocks away and there is also a grocery store close by. Although it was great to be on the beach it also had its problems as there were several

nights when the locals were partying right in front of the Casa. Also we

could hear the loud music from some of the clubs nearby at night. However, I believe these things are beyond control of the owners and

if you want to be right in town, noise is the price you will pay.

Overall we enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to those

looking to be in the heart of the action!

Well maintained and comfortable town house in an excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

Situated right on the beach, with a small pool perfect for if its a little crowded by the sea. This rental has a nice interior layout & gives you access to the beach, town for amusement, and close enough to the airport. It is easy to book through the accommodating owners, and supported well by daily maid service. We hope to come back again!

This home is so beautiful and I cant wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

After going to Puerto Vallarta for many years, I was very happy to find the this "gem". Its location is perfect to the markets, shopping, has its own pool and right on the beach. We thoroughly enjoyed Renato in assisting us with transportation from the airport and to Marta for cooking and cleaning during our stay. The home is charming. The beds are a little on the hard side, but that is the only thing I would change. We are planning to return next year and this time we will book it for 10 days!

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.
