Why Susan chose South Zone

We chose Casita Dorada as our house because it is between civilization and nature. We wanted a spot that was away from the rush of PV and Northshore but close enough to all amenities, attractions , beach, mountains and authentic Mexican village life. We like the independent living areas in the house, so we can invite friends and still enjoy privacy.

What makes this villa unique

We enjoy walking to the beach and spending the day swimming and lounging, playing tennis, horseback riding, river and jungle hikes, scuba diving/snorkeling ,

staying at home by the pool with a nice cool drink and watching the parrots and amazing

array of birds on the trees in front of the

deck. Quiet nights watching stars on the terrace or fun nights down in the village restaurants.

Amazing House For Large Group!

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 people (4 couples and 2 individual friends) stay at this house for 3 nights. We were coming to Puerto Vallarta for a wedding. This house was amazing and better than any of us expected based on the pictures. There were plenty of rooms all over the house, so people could be near each other if they wanted or more secluded if that was their preference. The upstairs rooms were all next to each other, but some of the rooms on the bottom levels had private entrances. One room even had a separate kitchen downstairs. The private pool outside with the bar area was very nice to hang out by during the day. The house had 2 large doors that led out to the pool with a large dining area and sitting area right inside by the kitchen. Perfect set up for easy access from the pool to the kitchen. The house was supplied with everything you would need including pool towels.

When we got there, Luci greeted us with homemade guac and salsa. Luci, was fantastic at keeping the house clean, even arranged for food to be delivered to the house, and made us all breakfast. The house is sort of far up the hill so we originally thought it would be hard to get a taxi. However, Luci left numbers for taxi services, and taxis were able to be there usually within 10 minutes. It's about a 30 minute drive to the main part of Puerto Vallarta, but it was only about $20 each way.

I would definitely recommend this house for any large group or even a family. The owner was very prompt in all her responses with any questions we had and made finding the house and checking in very simple. All the instructions were spelled out before we got there. Our group had a great time and the house was perfect for our group.

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

We were a family group of 12 and had a great week together. The house was exactly as advertised -- in fact, better than the pictures show - and the owner was pleasant and responsive.

The house was great, big enough for folks to spread out and plenty of room on the main deck and pool level for everyone to be together. The bedrooms are all nicely sized and the kitchen is well stocked with all you need to make your meals, an added bonus is the washer and dryer, especially with a lot of kids going through clothes. Luci the housekeeper was terrific and kept things tidy. The house is up in the hills, and while there are a few houses around its really quite secluded and the breezes keep things cool.

Not much more to add that hasnt been said in the other reviews, go ahead and rent the place, you will be thrilled.

Great location inthe jungle with a view - I would recommend a car and go to Boca and catch water taxis there. The lay out of the house is excellent for large groups or a couple families and Lucy was an excellent house keeper

Bird Watching Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a place to vacation that was warm where we could have fun activities or just stay “home” and relax. Casita Dorada was that – and more! Located on the hills above Mismaloya (30 minutes south of Puerto Vallarta) the setting is beautiful and private, surrounded by the lush native jungle. The Casita’s main room opens out onto a large patio with a palapa and swimming pool. Very complete kitchen, plenty of soft bathroom and pool towels. Enough books and DVD’s to fill lazy days and nights. We enjoyed the birds from there in the mornings and along the adjacent road in the evening. Without trying very hard we identified 30 bird species! Elegant and Citreoline Trogons, Black-Throated Magpie-Jay, Squirrel Cuckoo, Great Kiskadee, Lineated and Pale-Billed Woodpeckers, Golden-Cheeked Woodpecker, Ivory-Billed Woodcreeper, Masked Tityra, Wagler’s Chachalaca, Great Black and Short-Tailed Hawks, Military Macaws, Orange-Fronted Parakeets, the ever-present and noisy Yellow-Winged Cacique, and more! While looking for birds we saw a green tree iguana as well as very large black iguanas. The butterflies were also abundant and diverse, but we didn’t try to identify them.

During the day we explored the town – beach, food vendors, resort, and tequila tasting. The bus is an easy ride to the Puerto Vallarta Botanical Garden that had many beautiful display gardens as well as a trail through a natural area along the river. We also hiked a trail above the Casita that provided an expansive view to the ocean and back to Mismaloya with PV in the distance.

Luci took great care of us at the Casita, keeping the house spotless and making sure we had everything we needed. And we had two meals cooked for us by Giovanna. She cooked dorado so delicately. You must also ask for her tres leches cake, and her flan was also exceptional. We had a wonderful vacation and will definitely go back to Casita Dorada!

Where to begin? From the moment we arrived till the day we left probably the best vacation I've been on in my life and it had a lot to do with the staff Gaby & Luz they made us feel welcome and at home

The house was immaculate and wonderfully kept and my myself and my family had an absolute ball there we enjoyed the scenery and the close proximity to the beach and mismaloya. We rented a car and that made our vacation all the more enjoyable because we were not limited as to where or when we went anywhere

Thanks very much to the owners Mercedes and Steve

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start in describing what turned out to be one of our best vacations eve. I'll start with the house. The pictures on this site do not do it justice. It is much bigger than it appears. We had a large group with more than enough room for everyone. The house is very clean with comfortable beds, plenty of towels and more than enough room for everyone to sit. It had everything we needed. I can't think of a time in 8 days when I was looking for something I needed that they didn't have . The house itself is very colorful and has a great local flavor. It is close enough to PV to make it convenient to get to, but far enough away to make it feel like you are out of the hustle of the city. There is a large veranda with a wet bar and a great, warm pool. We spent a lot of time sitting there watching the kids play in the pool, which also has a great view of the ocean and the town, Mismaloya.

Without a doubt the best decision we made was to hire the local chef for our brunch and dinner. Mismaloya is a small town without a lot of options for eating out, and having these fantastic cooks make food for us every day freed us up to do all of the activities that the area offers. They went above and beyond our expectations and offer a service at a more than reasonable price. The house keeper, Luci, was so helpful for everything we needed, from finding taxis to keeping the house organized and clean during our entire stay.

Here are a few things I would recommend:

Rent a car for your stay. Taxis are available, but having a car made it so easy to get around and it is easy to drive in this area. If you do rent a car, reserve it and PAY for it before you arrive. This cut the cost of the car in half and avoided that hassle of bargaining when you arrive.

There are no ATMs or banks, that we found, in Mismaloya. Exchange all money before leaving PV, we found the exchange rate to be better in PV than in Mismaloya.

There are several large tourist adventure companies that will take you all over PV, but we found that the local boats at the beach near the house were the best. They are much cheaper and much more personable and friendly. The local people at the beach took us on boat rides, snorkling, zip lining, etc. They have everything you need right there.

We ate dinner one night at Tony's in Mismaloya . The food and service were great, highly recommend.

We had a group of people from 4-84 years old for 8 days, and no one was ever bored!
