About Margaret

Your hosts Margaret Parrish and Jon Christopher Jones welcome you to their perfect beachfront escape in sunny and warm Puerto Vallarta, Mexico! Margaret, an army brat that has lived all over the world, first fell in love with Vallarta during her honeymoon in the mid 80's. After selling a thriving small café in Salt Lake City, she quickly became bored. Her dreams always brought her back to Vallarta, the place that she fell in love with the minute she arrived. Jon was a friend of Margaret’s from Salt Lake City where he owned a successful travel agency - the Travel Zone. Ever since a spring break trip to Mexico in high school, Jon’s goal was to one day move there. Jon’s extensive background in hospitality as the Director of Coca-Cola’s Global Hospitality program for the 2002 Olympic Games and many other projects for the Olympic and Paralympics Games, was the perfect training ground as part owner of a pair of hotels. Together, in 1997, they rescued a diamond in the rough on the perfect beach in Vallarta and Quinta Maria Cortez became a reality after months of renovations and improvements. Just three years later, the neighboring property became available, and Casa Tres Vidas joined the enclave that makes up Villas in Vallarta. Margaret, Jon, Jose Ruiz de Anda, their bilingual and humorous General Manager who joined the group in 1998 after leaving the Fiesta Americana, and the entire Villas in Vallarta team, look forward to welcoming you!

Margaret purchased this Villa in 2000

Why Margaret chose Conchas Chinas

                                                                          We were a party of 10, and had the need for many different changes before our arrival. Margaret, the American owner, could not have been more accommodating. Each time I contacted her, she responded immediately, and made sure my requests were honored. She had great patience with me!

                                                                          The house is beyond beautiful. The pictures do not do it justice. Very clean. Charming, yet modern. Spacious and welcoming. You can walk out to the ocean. The beachfront is not for swimming, but relaxing in the provided chairs, playing in the sand, getting your toes wet, was all wonderful.

                                                                          The staff is superb!! Every need taken care of, with out even asking. Our meals were wonderful, and the chef went out of his way to please every guest, even the 2 year old. Food and presentation 5 star!

                                                                          Wonderful location. One warning: lots of stairs. 54 just to get down to our villa. This was no problem for us. We needed the exercise after eating huge breakfast’s and dinners.

                                                                          We all loved it!

                                                                          Gary S.

The charming staff greeted us with chilled bottles of water, took our suitcases and we were escorted to our rooms. The room was a complete pleasant surprise...spacious as a hotel suite, clean, large bathrooms, ample towels/linens, beautiful exposed red brick walls, and elegant white fabric draped above each bed frame that gave it a "palace bedroom" look. Our group opted for a meal plan where the creative chef prepared meals on several of the days we stayed there. The food was delicious and something you would have only expected at a fine dining restaurant. At the adjacent villa, we met friendly neighbors who raved about their breakfast only plan similar to a B&B. The villas have several small clean pools, multiple levels that have beautifully decorated outside living areas with TVs, music, games, books, and couches to escape to. Just a short 20 minute walk or $6 USD cab ride is the south end of PV that was filled with wonderful restaurants, cafes, shops, and nightlife. It was authentic Mexico! We all felt extremely safe. The streets were clean, people very friendly. This week was a complete surprise! I was awed by the charm of the destination and thrilled by the wonderful accommodations. It was truly a vacation to be remembers and I would only stay at this villa again on my return.
