About Lionel Cunningham


I'm Lionel on the left of this photo, my partner of 24 years is Garin. In this photo we are returning with 'The Catch Of The Day' an 11 foot sail fish. Another exciting day of fishing in the Bay of Bandaras.

We also live in Southern Oregon where our Summer residence is located, as well as our Lake Home at Fish Lake, in the Rogue River National Forest. Also our business Cripple Creek Music Co. in Ashland, Oregon is where we retail musical instruments.

We share our homes with 2 very lovable Havanese Dogs, Sparky and Quesa Diva,(K.C.) .

Lionel Cunningham purchased this villa in 1995

Why Lionel Cunningham chose South Zone

We fell in Love with Puerto Vallarta in 1990. We love the people, the culture, but most, the Warm Sunny Winters of Mexico.

We purchased Casa Owaissa (our guest house) in 1995 and Casa de la Hoja (our second residence) in 2001. We recently remodeled both houses. We rent one or both houses when we are not using them, call for details.

What makes this villa unique

We enjoy the people and the diverse culture of Mexico. The beautiful white sand beaches, and all that the Bay of Banderas has to offer. Most of all, we love Puerto Vallarta's wonderful weather.

Casa Owaissa - Spacious and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week at Casa Owaissa. We enjoyed the spaciousness of the home. It is decorated with many pieces of beautiful art work. The bedrooms were very comfortable and cool. The location was great for catching the local bus to downtown or to the various beaches in the area. We especially enjoyed Conchas Chinas Beach and enjoyed meals at La Playita almost every day of our visit. Memo and Norma were always available behind the scenes keeping the house and pool spotless. Although the walk up the steps at the end of a day of fun in the sun could be tiring, a swim in the private pool and a stunning sunset were our reward. We loved it!

Riverside, IL

2nd Vacation there in seven months

  • 5 of 5

What can we say, it's a great place!

Norma and Memo are the best, they take care of everything. They are very efficient and professional yet they make you feel like family. Everything from the reservation to final morning departure goes smooth. Lionel and Gavin are the best hosts you could ever imagine. I have been fortunate to have traveled the world and I can truly say this is on the top of my list. We will be BACK!!

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

We really can't say enough good things about this property. It was very nice, very clean, had a great view, and our hosts were very accommodating and friendly. With two bedrooms and two bathrooms it was perfect for two couples, and had a nice size pool also.

The location is also excellent. We had all breakfasts and one dinner at the house but mostly walked to romantic zone for lunch and supper. There are many reasonably priced fabulous restaurants there, and the walk only about 15 minutes which was perfect before and after a big meal. If we went further we would cab, which was also very inexpensive.

Would definitely go back.

Owner's Response: Shane, Thanks for your very nice review. It was fun meeting all of you. If you decide to return, consider renting Casa de la Hoja along with Casa Owaissa to include more friends on your next vacation. Hope to see you next year. Lionel

Outstanding week in PV thanks to the beautiful accommodation at Casa Owaissa. It truly is a piece of paradise. Surrounded by tropical greenery, the home offers stunning views, a lovely private pool area and ample space for two couples. We bar-b-qued the first night, but the Casa is a short walk to many fantastic restaurants so we ate out most of our stay. We loved to be able to walk to town. Thanks to Memo and Norma for their care and so lovely to meet you Lionel and Garin (and Joyce!). Thanks for all the great dining and activity tips. Hope to come back soon!

Lovely private villa in the hills.

  • 4 of 5

I have scatters thoughts so I will do my best. This is a fantastic house for two couples. It is a short jaunt to the beach/restaurants and a very quick cab ride back. The stairs up from the gate are a little daunting if you have a disability. The stairs are shared with the owners, but they come in a different entrance and are rarely seen. The pool was very clear and DEEP. You can only touch from the far side, the rest of the time you are treading water. They provide floaties which are great for lounging in the pool. The pool area gets sun all day and there is an umbrella for shade. The view from the top balcony is better than at the pool, but both provide a great view of sunsets on the bay which are fantastic. There is air conditioning in the bedrooms which is nice at night. The staff Meme and Norma are very nice and helpful. This was a great vacation with no downsides to mention. We loved it.
