About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Coming through the gates of Villas del Tropico at the south/west end of Los Ayala (opposite the entry road) you enter a nature reserve. This enclave of private homes enjoys both mountain and ocean views. TROPICAL DREAMS, our home, is located on the lower mountainside. This area is peaceful, tranquil and very different from the noisy, busy villages and beaches. We are surrounded by lush palms and tropical hardwood forests.

Our home has 3 separate levels. The topmost level is open on all sides with a roof. You look out towards the ocean from a comfortable sofa or relax in a hammock for two. It also has a washing machine, toilet and sink, table and chairs.

The second level is our home having a balcony which gives shade to the guest level.

The guest level, down a few steps, is a self-contained fully equipped suite with private entrance having one bedroom with queen size bed and a built-in sofa; living room with pull-out sofa bed for 2; sliding doors from living room to large patio; kitchen surrounded on 3 sides with glass & screens and fully equipped. A few steps down through the terraced gardens is the pool area including our palapa with a built-in sofa and table; more flowers and fruit trees. Our pool has a built-in whirlpool.

The beautiful beach of Los Ayala is only a 12 minute walk from our home. There are many beach restaurants and souvenir stands.

Come join us on our early morning mountain walks. You may see armadillos, javelinas, coatimundis and many different birds such as chachalacas, flowering trees and more can be seen in our unique preserve. From atop our mountain you can see whales. Bring your camera and binoculars.

Los Ayala is only 60 km north of Puerto Vallarta and 45 minutes from its international airport. Los Ayala's one km long beach is the best in the area. You can buy groceries, seafood, souvenirs and more. Nearby towns of La Penita and Rincon de Guayabitos have a bank, more stores and restaurants. There are several ATM machines in the area.

You will enjoy TROPICAL DREAMS if you love the sounds of birds and the wind rustling the palm leaves. We know you will leave with wonderful memories.

About Veronica Weller

Before we both retired from our hectic jobs in Canada, we took short trips to Mexico and knew that we needed to explore this country in depth as we found it to be fascinating and had a lot to offer to both vacationers and retirees.

We have driven along the coastlines of Mexico from Texas along the entire Gulf of Mexico following the Yucatan coast down the Caribbean coast to central Belize. Also, all of the Pacific coast from Arizona to Guatemala. Other trips have included most of the interior of the country. This has made us very knowledgeable about Mexico. We love Mexico and feel safe living here and travelling within it’s boarders.

Our children and grandchildren have visited us in Los Ayala and they too have enjoyed themselves immensely.

As we are bird watchers and nature lovers, we are always travelling in search of new birds and, of course, Mexico has an abundance of species unfamiliar to the typical North American birder. One of our favourite birding spots is San Blas just a short drive up the coast from Los Ayala on the Riviera Nayarit.

Veronica does volunteer work with local pet neutering clinics in Los Ayala, Rincon de Guayabitos and Lo de Marcos. These clinics have saved animals in distress and reduced the number of stray dogs roaming the beaches and towns.

Gunter is fluent in German and Veronica speaks both French and Italian. We are both functional in Spanish and continue to study the language.

Veronica Weller purchased this apartment in 2007

Guestbook comments from the owner

Coming from the busy city to your tropical home was the change that I needed. I loved being surrounded by the lush palm trees. The walk into town was just what I needed. It was an easy walk and I usually had breakfast on the beach. It was nice to return for a refreshing swim in your lovely pool. I slept very well because it is so quiet at your home. Shall come again.
