About Yvonneka

I completed construction of Casa Yvonneka in 2007 and a beautiful penthouse addition in 2015. It is considered a totally unique resort with impeccable service.

Whether for a celebration, retreat or simply to relax we offer a totally private oasis yet close to the beach, bars, restaurants and galleries.

It is truly spectacular. Please feel welcomed to come see for yourself.


Why Yvonneka chose Alta Vista

Traveled the world and came to Puerto Vallarta to recreate the best of everything in my state of the art villa!

Casa Yvonneka is uniquely located within a short walk to world class gourmet restaurants, art galleries, shopping and the bars of the popular Los Muertos Beach and Romantic Zone. In a quiet neighborhood it is nestled into the tropical rain-forest next door. But most of all for the VIEW!!! A beachfront property looks out to darkness after the sunsets, while Casa Yvonneka has an amazing view of the town, city and bay, AND we see the fireworks from the pirate ship each and every night.

What makes this villa unique

My villa chef has been with me for years traveling with me and seeing what true gourmet food is.

A handpicked full time staff is here ready to please and pamper you while you unwind in luxury.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Wow! Our 7-night stay here at Casa Yvonneka over New Years week 2014/'15 was perfect on every level. There were 27 family members ages 8- months to 85 yrs and we all had a vacation never to be forgotten. To start, the house itself is spectacular. The main floor with its massive dining room, living room, kitchen and patio/pool area - whose open design spreads out to a breathtaking scene of the historic town and ocean below - looks and feels like a page out of the "Lifestyles of the rich and famous." To add to the luxury, every moment we spent on the main floor of the house the impeccable and supremely friendly staff served our every need from morning to night. We sat for two formal meals each day and the food was five-star restaurant quality with a wide variety of cuisines offered, as well as attention to our dietary needs (we had two vegans in our group). Cocktails and fresh fruit smoothies were made-to-order throughout the day, as were bowls of guacamole, pico de gallo, quesadillas, and vegetable dips. None of us needed to lift a finger to shop or prepare food and that made meal-time so easy for a group of our size. When the days were over we'd retire to our private rooms with more views of the town below. The floor to ceiling windows can be opened allowing for ocean breezes to continuously roll through. Heavenly!

Having traveled all over the world (my wife is a travel photographer) I would compare staying at Casa Yvonneka more akin to staying at a high-end boutique hotel rather than a house. The unbelievable design and layout of the home and amenities, the top-tier service of the staff, quality of food and proximity to town (5-minute walk) was all second to none and we'd all come again without a seconds thought. “The Watters Family - Dec 2014"

2017 APS trip was incredible!

  • 5 of 5

We just came home from an 8-day trip to Casa Yvonneka. This was our second visit and I'm still amazed at how beautiful this property really is. The kitchen staff supervised by Melana serves 5-star meals and the service is unmatched. This was a company trip, and the first 4 days had 10 couples, and we brought in a total of 26 people for the remaining 4 days. They serve 26 people better than most restaurants serve 10 people. The food is amazing and they will cook anything you select. Fernando, Tony and Felix also provide a service second to none. You will never go thirsty or hungry and when you leave you will want to come back many more times. We used to take our employees to different locations in different countries, but after finding Casa Yvonneka, we may never go anywhere else. If you want to go on excursions, Katia does an excellent job of arranging any trip you'd like to go on. The entire staff, from cooks, maids and servers is the best. Yvonne has put together a tremendous staff and they will go out of their way to make you comfortable and satisfied. I can't say enough good things about Casa Yvonneka! We all love it! Thanks for sharing your wonderful property with us!!

Homecoming 2017!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a week at Casa Yvonneka with 18 family members, 4 generations ranging in age from 5 to 96 years young. Since it was our 4th visit, we knew what to expect.....the breathtaking views, the spacious, comfortable suites, the delicious meals, the fabulous staff. Our family was in countdown mode for weeks with their excitement and joy to return.

Casa Yvonneka is our Mexican home, whose staff have become like family. Malena, Fernando, Tony, Felix and Betty and all the others are absolutely the BEST!! I told Malena that I hope heaven smells like her cooking. It is pure paradise for a relaxing pampered vacation. It's location is great for easy walks to shopping, restaurants (if you must leave), and the beach. It was fun to walk out the front door and explore the neighborhood. The front and rear entrances were always secured, with easy access to return. Yvonneka checked in with us to ensure a wonderful vacation was enjoyed by all.

We had friends in Puerto Vallarta during the same time who finally got to visit Casa Yvonneka and they were amazed! They totally understood why we keep returning, in fact we made our return reservation before we left. We've travelled to PV for 17 years and have fallen in love with the weather, the city, and mostly the people. Casa Yvonneka is one small part of the city but is a genuine example of what you will find on your visit. Don't hesitate to book a stay, just please don't try to take our week in February!

A very heartfelt "THANK YOU" to Yvonneka annd the amazing staff at Casa Y, we love you!

Stunning views and the true feel of old PV!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I visited Casa Yvonneka for the second time this past February. We brought in a dozen or so business associates for a three day stay and then followed that up with another week with six couples. We've visited PV many times and our stays at Casa Yvonneka have both been memorable. The staff, ALL OF THEM, are amazing. The head chef and her associates made wonderful meals for us morning, noon and night. The staff is extremely attentive and friendly and go out of their way to make every day special. They reminded us of the character Radar from the old sitcom M.A.S.H. Like Radar, the staff knew what we needed and wanted even before we did. All the rooms we used were beautiful and comfortable. The location is perfect. It's no more than a 10 minute walk to old downtown. We made trips into town every day to exercise, shop and sight see! Everybody in our party had a wonderful time and highly recommend the villa. You will see and feel the best of Puerto Vallarta when you stay here! Thanks, Yvonne, for another memorable vacation!

Vacation of a lifetime

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to get 20 of our best friends together and celebrate a combined bachelor/bachelorette party. The atmosphere, energy and experience Casa Yvonneka gave our group of friends was unforgettable. Yvonneka is by far the most beautiful home I have ever been inside of, while overlooking one of the best views of a city I've ever seen.
