About the Property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Its so hard to find that perfect vacation place, that as soon as we found it, we had to buy it -- and share it with you! Casa Curiel is an airy, light-filled and peaceful 2 bedroom/2 bathroom respite within a quieter, condo complex -- complete with gorgeous pool and a rooftop patio with amazing views of the ocean and the mountains. This is also one of the few units in this condo complex that has nice views from the condo itself.

All of this is so well-situated in Zona Dorada -- a few blocks from the best beach on the Bay of Banderas, less than a block from restaurants, convenience store, A big box store, bank, pharmacy and taxi stand.

The condo itself has a fully equipped kitchen with an open concept layout allowing the gorgeous Mexican sunlight to bounce everywhere. In fact, most of the 'walls' to the outside are made of glass patio doors. There is a master bedroom with an en suite bathroom and a brand new king size bed (really two twins fitted together with a special connector and king size bedding -- you can't find king size mattresses in Mexico!) The second bedroom has two double beds. There is a second bathroom just outside this bedroom. Both bedrooms have lovely views and sliding glass patio doors that open to let the ocean breeze in. For your convenience, there is a washer and dryer in the condo itself.

There is a deck off of the dining room with an outside table and chairs -- a great place to enjoy your morning coffee (yes, there is a coffeemaker) while gazing at the pool.

For lounging in the condo, we have a large (40") flat screen SMART TV, DVD player, and a private internet connection through the telephone company.

And finally, a short 2 flights of stairs above Condo Curiel is a large patio with palapas and incredible views of the mountains and sea. Its a wonderful place to have dinner or watch the sunset.

The beach is a pleasant 7-10 minute walk away. What makes it the best in the Bay of Banderas? The grade is mild (sometimes even flat if you catch the tide right) so you can walk along it comfortably for miles in either direction. The sand is mostly the fine and golden kind that feels great under the feet -- not too many pebbles. And the there are plenty of waves to play in but they aren't too scary big. Don't miss a chance to see the beautiful sun set behind the ocean. We provide you with backpack beach chairs, beach towels, beach toys, a rolling cart to take everything comfortably to and from the beach.

My husband and I used to rent places to stay from VRBO. We tried to include all the things we wished people had included (such as a cell phone for which you can buy minutes at the corner store), so if we didn't mention something, just shoot us an email and ask! Maybe we already have it, or if we think its a good idea, maybe we will get it. We also have a wonderful local manager, Silvia, that can help make your stay comfortable while you are there. She would be happy to make arrangements for maid service or other services you may like.

PLEASE NOTE: I know its rare for Bucerias but we are some of the few folks from the US that have discovered this place. So please note that rates are in U.S. Dollars. You can also pay in pesos.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Darcy, David, Ariel and Benjy happily reside in Madison, WI except sometimes we get too cold!

Why the Owner Chose Bucerías, Nay., Mexico:
Spent Christmas vacation here as a family in December of 2010, fell in love with Bucerias, and then with this particular condo, nearby beach and overall location -- walkable to everything! So convenient to vacation without a car.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Perla del Mar is not a big, fancy resort. It is a friendly, personable 24 unit complex for people that know how to relax (or want to learn!). Within the well-maintained complex, there is a big pool, a rooftop patio and a common room within the small complex. Although it is a quiet area there are a few restaurants within a block and several stores around the corner with everything you forgot along with a bank and a pharmacy. We love to wander around this colorful, interesting and friendly town, where we can walk to anything and shop at the local markets. And the nearby beach (a 7-10 minute walk) was kid-approved for not having sharp pointy things in the sand or while wading in. And the surf can be fun, but not crazy huge, scary waves. The parents liked that the beach had a fairly mild grade for nice long walks in either direction. Buses and taxis are available for adventures into Puerto Vallarta, rainforests, Sayulita, and other beautiful points north on Riviera Nayarit. Everything we love in a vacation in one place!
