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 80s. 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 Paralympic 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

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our 6th time visiting Casa Tres Vidas. We have stayed in all 3 villas. If you really want the spectacular views, stay in Vida Alta (top villa). Just be forewarned, it is a LONG way down to the beach! The middle villa, Vida Sol, we have found is best when we have our grown children with us and they bring their friends, as the 2 downstairs bedrooms have TWO king beds in each room. That way they can share a room but not have to sleep in the same bed with them! However....our favorite is Vida Mar. We like to rent this one because it has 4 bedrooms and we like to invite 3 other couples as our guests. Each bedroom has its own bathroom and each bedroom is air-conditioned. It is just a few steps to the beach and in the evening, we enjoy our drinks and fresh guacamole & salsa with chips in the living room watching the sunset before dinner. Sunsets are almost always spectacular!

The women in our group REALLY get to relax because 1) we don't have to think about what to cook for breakfast or dinner 6 out of the 7 days a week - we just pick something & our chef makes it, 2) we don't have to go shop for it, 3) we don't have to cook it, and 4) we don't have to clean it up! We want to pack up Eduardo (chef) and Daniel (waiter) and take them home with us!! A suggestion for Sunday dinner is: Café des Artistes. Make a reservation on Open Table. It's fabulous! A suggestion for Sunday breakfast is to walk out to the beach and go left. Go to the very end (10-15 minute walk) and eat breakfast at the Lindo Mar Resort Restaurant. Go early (before 9:00 am) so you don't have to wait. It is a buffet breIf you wantakfast but the food is good and the views are wonderful. You sit right over the water. It's such a nice thing to do early in the morning.

The BEST Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about how great my time was at Casa Tres Vidas. My friends and I were spellbound from the moment we walked into the main floor and that continued as Ruberto took us around the villa. The accomodations were impeccable. The service was outstanding! Pablo got offers from each of us to come back to the states and cook for us. Everything he served was delicious! Romero anticipated our needs from having coffee ready by the time we woke up to having the hot tub ready when we came back from time in the city. Ruberto was so great with his suggestions and helping make sure everything was perfect. The three of them are amazing!!! I forget the cleaning lady's name but she was great as well. She moved in and out so quickly but you knew she was there by the cleanliness when you returned to any room! It's been almost 2 months and I still talk about this trip. All of us plan to come back together and separately. Lastly, I must also mention the owner, Margaret! She was so willing to answer any questions and always prompt. Our experience was memorable on so many levels! Thank you!!
