About Kathy Young

I am a 75 year old grandmother, who is soon to be a great grandmother. I have been coming to Mexico for 50 years. I love Mexico. I grew up in Lubbock, TX and have been in Odessa, Texas for all of my married life. I am a big Texas Tech fan.

Kathy Young purchased this villa in 1986

Why Kathy Young chose Bahía de Banderas

I was one of the original owners in Punta del Burro. When you see the area, you will know why I fell in love with it. I bought it when there was hardly anything there. Now we have cobbled stone roads, underground utilities and 24 hour security. We have all the bells and whistles.

AMAZING!!! Get away...

  • 5 of 5

What can I say here other than... If you are visiting Mexico this is the place to stay... We have been visiting Mexico for over 10 years and have stayed in resorts, time shares and also own a Condo in Nuevo Vallarta, MX and this hidden gem has topped over 10 years of vacations!

You want a get away with out being drown in crowds of people, want your own beach, your own pool, your own space this house has it all! To top it off there is a nice vehicle available and you have a chef that makes authentic better then local food and Juan takes care of what ever else you need. Juan will bring you drinks, serve you your meals. This house has it all, I could go on and on... This is a great place to stay, the owners have done very well at pleasing their guests, which is hard to do, as I also own a VRBO property and I wish I could offer and do what the owners of this property have done!

We will defiantly be back!

This is truly the most remarkable vacation we've ever had! Juan picks you up at the airport, then you have use of the car until he takes you back to the airport for your return flight. Upon arrival to this beautiful home, we are greeted by Bali, the cook, with the most amazing cheese quesadillas I've ever eaten. Juan made the margaritas. The home is so cozy. The beds are very comfy. Couldn't have asked for better accommodations. Pool is heated. Beach in your back yard that is very safe to swim in. Out door shower. Hammocks. Bon fire that Juan set up

For us on the beach was so much fun. We had massages on the beach, from two ladies Kathy recommended. But best of all, the food that Bali and Juan prepared was AMAZING!!! Everything was made fresh. Salsas, sauces, guacamole, yum! We had such an amazing time, we are going back next year. Once again, this was the most amazing vacation we've ever had. Thank you Kathy! Your vacation home was the best ever!!

Best. Vacation. Ever.

  • 5 of 5

We've been taking a family vacation to Mexico since before our children were married and before we had three grandkids. For perspective, "we" are the parents (mid-60s), our two daughters and one son-in-lay (mid-30s), two four-year olds and a one-year old. Our day went from the house to the beach to the pool to the beach to the pool to the ... you get the picture.

Juan picked us up right on schedule and we were drinking margaritas and enjoying guacamole and chips about an hour later. Everything everyone says in the reviews below is true: the food was amazing, Juan and Baby (plus some family members) kept everything in great shape (including us!), the beds are comfortable, and the location is the best anywhere.

We only left the property twice - once to see the La Cruz Sunday market (worthwhile), and once to do a visit to Sayulita. We've spent the last seven vacations in Sayulita and know it well, but having spent a few days at Casa de las Abuelas we couldn't wait to get back to the peace and beauty of the Burros beach.

Perfect spot for swimming, SUPping, and surfing if you like to be active, or to lay on the beach or around the pool if you just want to relax.

An added bonus is that the few people who were walking by on the beach were very friendly. We brought beers out to one group and they returned the favor by inviting us over to their place the next day for ceviche made from fish they'd caught that morning. And on New Year's Eve we stood around a bonfire with a Mexican family that invited us to share their food and drinks with them nearby.

All in all, to reiterate the title of this review, everyone in our group agreed that it was the best vacation we'd ever had.

Kathy is so generous to share her piece of heaven to the public. I celebrated my 50th birthday with a few girlfriends and it was the most memorable vacation. We were treated like queens. The employees that run the house are amazing, we all wanted to adopt them. Thank you Kathy!!!!!

There were 6 of us staying: me, my husband, my two sons in their early 20s and my parents. What a great time we had. Flawless from the time Juan picked us up at the airport to the time he dropped us off a week later. The house is great, every bedroom was air conditioned and roomy, plenty of seating/relaxation areas outside, loved our pool time, and you can't beat the beachfront location! We especially loved sitting under the beach palapa, either in the chairs or the hammocks, beer or margarita in hand, and watching the huge waves roll in. Juan, Bali, and the extra staff were all wonderful - Bali's meals were FABULOUS (fresh tuna steaks, steak and lobster, enchiladas, fish tacos, amazing breakfasts, etc) and Juan's fresh lime margaritas were SO good! He always had some ready in the freezer for us. We took Kathy's recommendation and did the Ally Cat full day sailing adventure to Las Marietas, $90pp including all day drinks, meals and snacks (GREAT deal!) - we all had a blast and highly recommend this activity to everyone of pretty much any age. Having free use of the SUV was great as we drove into Sayulita one day for souvenir shopping, and into Punta de Mita for dinner. This vacation rental is such a great deal, probably the best you'll find in the PV and surrounding area. A huge thank you to Kathy for sharing this lovely piece of heaven with us - we truly had a relaxing holiday.


- We found it extremely hot and humid, even more than expected - so just a head's up: if you're not used to this type of heat you should probably avoid summer months.

- Biting insects: We read lots of warnings about mosquitos at dusk, but we found the no-see-ums the most annoying - so, yes...definitely bring bug spray for evenings.

- Tipping: Juan and Bali really work hard to make your stay the best possible - please be sure to bring extra $ and tip them well as they really do deserve it. :-)

You have just found the most PERFECT vacation spot in all of Mexico! Book your stay at Case de las Abuelas now! Even though this was our 4th time to be there, it was new to the rest of our family (3 couples, & 3 teenage grandchildren). We enjoyed the gracious hospitality of Baly and Juan, of course. They are special people and will make your visit special as well. The house, itself, is charming, the pool is delightful, and the setting on the beach could not be more perfect. You may believe the reviews! No one could rate this adventure any less than "Excellent" ! Enjoy your stay!

Punta del Burro is a beautiful, safe, gated community on one of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico. This will be one of the most relaxing vacations with Juan and Baly cooking, making drinks and taking care of you. You will never want to leave.
