Amazing, comfortable place and Anna is great!!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 8 people. The house was super nice, very comfortable and had all of the necessities. While it's located outside of PV, cabs were inexpensive. It's a very short walk to the beach and Karen's (which was our daily destination). Bucerias is a really cute town but we stayed in for most of our meals and had Anna cook for us. She is what really made the house special. We didn't have to think about planning a meal for a large group and her food was absolutely delicious. Our group rarely visits the same place more than once but we all agreed we would love to return to the house!!!

Best Week Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, where to even begin. I stumbled on this property when I was looking for a place to host my family for my wedding. I wanted a place where we could all be together but also all have our own space. I wanted our week to be special but also intimate. I wanted luxury but also the feeling of a home away from home.

From the moment I contacted Shayne about this property I was well cared for. They worked with me on our dates, our needs, our special requests. They went so far above and beyond to make this work for our wedding week that I truly can't write enough to describe it.

The staff was welcoming, accommodating, and kind. Over the course of our seven days there they became like members of our family. From the top-notch meals to the smiles, to the surprise party our last night there, no detail was overlooked.

I had 17 people to make happy, ranging in age from one year to 72 and not a single one wasn't cared for. Despite their different needs the staff made everyone feel special.

The property is located half a block from the beach, next door to a fabulous massage place and coffee shop, and just a few blocks from the market. It is private yet welcoming.

We truly loved every minute of our time there and can't recommend it enough. I almost put one star simply to make it easier for us to stay there in the future because with so many great reviews it will be hard to reserve it again. We will be back.

Loved this casita!

  • 5 of 5

Ana was phenomenal - we were amazed by her efficiency in the kitchen and the delicious results. The shrimp ceviche was sabrosisimo. Only three days were available at the casita during the weeks we were in the area so we will need to return for a longer stay in order to try more of Ana's specialties. The home appealed to us aesthetically as well as for comfort. We loved the dishes, wooden furniture and bedding.The Mexican star-shaped light fixtures that everyone loves are inside and out. It's really so beautifully decorated and has inspired us with ideas to take home. The pool was a great size, plenty of room for the six of us to swim around. We relished having our own private swimming spot for our stay in Bucerias - it was very hot. Although the beach is a minute's walk away, the temptation of jumping into your own pool without a thought made us a bit lazy. We will be back!

This home can comfortably sleep three couples, and children can sleep in the two twins in the lofts above each king bed. There are two bathrooms, so sharing is required. Dining table inside and one outside with seats for all.

Shopping note: there is decent souvenir shopping along Cardenas all the way to the Centro. We found the prices better here than in PV. Bought some nice pottery from the shop right before the bridge and some silver from Marcelino on the beach. He has items with the sterling stamp and let me know which of his items were alpaca.

A Little Piece of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in the Casita & we will most definitely be back! Shayne was quick to reply when we requested info and booking was a breeze. When we arrived at the Casita we were greeted with a warm welcome from Alejandro, a familiar face from when we stayed at the Villa. Ana is an amazing cook, and she takes such good care of us while we're staying in Bucerias. I really can't say enough about the great people that Boutique Villas employs, they help make your vacation.

The property is wonderful! The location of the Casita is perfect, a short block to the beach & the market is just down the street. There are excellent dining options close by for when Ana has her day off. The property is very secure & safe, well maintained and private. Having your own pool is probably one of the best parts, lots of space to relax & unwind. The beds are incredibly comfortable & clean. The rooms are spacious, it is nice to have a living room. Dining out on the patio is a treat.

It is always hard coming back to reality after a stay with Boutique Villas! We will continue staying with them in the future, and can't wait to come back!

Lovely, comfortable, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Great location, fantastic staff (Anita), comfy beds, fantastic kitchen, great patio and pool: it's all good. Ask Anita to make her birria (which is not on the overly Tex-Mexed suggested menu).

Bucerias ( 'place of divers') is a quaint little fishing town that attracts those who don't want the hustle and bustle of Puerto Vallarta, but still want amenities of a vacation resort town with close access to Puerto Vallarta (10 miles south of Bucerias). Nestled between Nuevo Vallarta and Punta Mita/Sayulita, Bucerias is truly coming into its own as a favored spot for vacationers. Of course, the main reason to be in Bucerias is that it boasts 10 miles of sandy beaches, the longest in Banderas Bay. The shallow water and the waves are great for boogie boarding and swimming, and the beach makes for great walks and jogging. Bucerias, which is part of Riviera Nayarit is surrounded by mountains and jungle which donates 345 days of sunshine a year. Enjoy many gourmet restaurants, boutique shops, and the popular Art walk to local galleries every Thursday night from Nov-April- all located within a minute walk of the villa! Bucerias is 5 min. to golf, 8 miles to Punta Mita/Sayulita for surfing

Other Activities: Kite Surfing, Paddle Boarding, Mexican Cooking Classes, Pottery Classes, Spanish Classes
