Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Our family fell in love with Puerto Vallarta many, many years ago on our first vacation to Banderas Bay. Something was quite special about Puerto Vallarta. The friendly and helpful people, it's history, and Hollywood connection, the culture, the beaches, the cobblestone streets, the variety of local dishes, and fresh seafood, the lush vegetation, and thriving art scene, and of course the weather! Puerto Vallarta was always the perfect tranquil setting for a fun filled and relaxing vacation. There was something for everyone. Our daughter loved (and still does) visiting the special petting Z00 section to pet tiger, lion, or jaguar cubs, and capuchin monkeys, it is really quite a wonderful and unique experience. The whole family enjoys feeding the Zoo animals, I prefer to tan, and window shop the antique shops and jewelry stores, shop at the Farmer's Markets while my husband prefers to walk and then relax pool side with a good book, and his favorite music, our son enjoys the water, be it body surfing at 'our' beautiful Garza Blanca beach, just a 3 minute walk from Villa Canta Mar, and he takes advantage of The 5 Star Resort - Garza Blanca Preserve day pass ($) to enjoy their facilities and lunch pool side with his friends. We all look forward to stepping out to dine at our favorite restaurants and eagerly await to find that next favorite dining experience or fish Taco truck that stays open the longest. This is the first time listing our home with VRBO. Please call or send an inquiry via e-mail regarding any questions you may have. We will be happy to address your questions, or concerns. We look forward to hearing from you. Thank you, Mike & Carmen Duran, Pasadena, California USA.

Why the Owner Chose South Zone, Puerto Vallarta, Jal., Mexico:
We knew we wanted to be close to the beach, to view the surf waves meeting the beach, in a restful setting and yet close to Puerto Vallarta's Historic Old Town, The Romantic Zone, and Los Muertos Beach, Villa Canta Mar is set in what we believe to be the prime Puerto Vallarta location, the South Shore. Villa Canta Mar is set on a point overlooking the ocean with Sierra Madre jungle foothills as a backdrop, Villa Canta Mar has spectacular ocean views, is minutes away from Garza Blanca's famed white (ecologically certified) sandy beach, restaurants, tourist destinations, all day excursions, from zip line experience, horseback riding under a waterfall, and mountain off road day trips. Tranquillity, privacy and security were also a high priority for us, and a private heated pool was a must. We searched for a traditional Mexican style architecture reminiscing of the Puerto Vallarta's old colonial charm. A home with a tiled roof, and thick hand built walls, with handcrafted finishes in the doors, arches, wood finishes, a home with all the modern amenities. Villa Canta Mar on the South Shore of Garza Blanca offered this and more. The cobblestone enclave has cascading Bougainvilles, and only a 3 minute walk to the perfect beach, the perfect Villa, Villa Canta Mar.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Villa Canta Mar is the place to get that much needed down time, for yourself, or to relax in the warm sun with your family or friends. It is the place to get that perfect tan, the perfect meal, experience the perfect sunset, in a perfect tranquil setting that nature and man can provide. Villa Canta Mar is a full service vacation rental, in a safe and beautiful setting. The Villa has bi-lingual friendly office staff, maid service, gardener and pool service, our house manager will meet you upon your arrival. and the private enclave provides an after hours/all night security on site. Awaken to serenade of tropical birds, butterflies, and a occasional iguana that slumbers on the roof tiles. Spend your day poolside taking in the sun, and exceptional views. Our private chef is available to prepare breakfast, lunch or dinner, or all meals, for yourself and your guests. Villas Altas Garza Blanca is a privately owned historic enclave, several of our neighbor's Villas are and have been listed with VBBO, we are proud to present Villa Canta Mar to this list of exceptional vacation rentals for the very first time. Villa Canta Mar is attractively affordable.
