Your home away from home ~ We pride ourselves in making you feel comfortable and part of a family. Angels rest is set up to accommodate single travelers or large groups. You will love meeting like minded travelers and enjoy the common areas with BBQ's, pool table and gym equipment. The huge pool is refreshing with a shallow end for children and for the more daring, an area to jump into the deep end from the second floor. Although we enjoy a little silliness, we also understand people need quiet time, so have created a beautiful garden . Perfect for relaxing and reading a book

About Rob Needham

Rob and I grew up in Canada and lived in the Okanagan before selling everything to move to Mexico. We started taking the kids out of school, first for 2 months, then 4 months during the winter. We traveled around in our bus but kept coming back to Puerto Vallarta. It felt good...felt right. I cried every-time we had to go back home.

In 2005 we put the house up for sale, packed our cube van and left Canada without looking back. We arrived in vallarta and bought a 4 unit house downtown then we bought angelsrest

Rob Needham purchased this house in 2005

Why Rob Needham chose Lázaro Cárdenas

We built a giant house before leaving Canada and I promised Rob we'd never own a place that size again! I didnt really lie...its not the same size...its bigger. I couldnt help it! I fell in love with the house and the neighborhood. I was sold when I went to the third floor and saw 'my' palm trees swaying in the breeze with the entire Bay in sight. It felt like home. It felt better than home! Poor Rob didnt have a chance.

We renovated for a year...added more square footage, then opened as a bed and breakfast. One of our first customers has never left the Angels rest family. He met and fell in love with our oldest daughter, got married and gave us our two grandkids.

What makes this house unique

One thing that sets us apart from most places is that you are in real Mexico. This isnt a fancy resort with someone catering to you or keeping you in a box. This is real...we live amoung some of the nicest, most polite people in the world. The first night we moved into the house ~ all five of us sleeping in the kitchen with no electricity and no clue of what was to come next, our neighbor brought us a giant platter of food. I was blown away! Ive never seen that kind of consideration before. I didnt even know my neighbors names before let alone reach my hand out to them! Within weeks of living there if I called our daughter 4 or 5 woman would point or call to her too. This is Mexico, this is our community. I love this place!

Excellent value and great view

  • 5 of 5

I rented a room on this big property for one week with all amenities.

The location is in a residential area, up on the hill. I liked living here in the residential neighborhood, being close to the local people.

Restaurants were close and very good.

I would come here again for my second time, since I feel very welcomed by the owner and very secure with the house and area.

Thank you for a welcomed stay.

Friendly bargain

  • 5 of 5

Friendly host and not a far walk from the beach.

Picked us up from the airport and always checked on us to see if we needed anything

Pool was kept clean and laundry lady was just down the street.

Good place for a single person or a couple.

Roosters next door but were only noisy every now and then

Would go back if we didnt see almost all of puerto vallarta this trip!
