Casa Malia was completely remodeled in 2006 and is located in Gringo Gulch (made famous by Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton). Facing south, the Casa has 180 degree views of the Sierra Madre Mountains, the Cuale River, Banderas Bay and much of the town.

It is located in the hill above the Cuale Island, in an area called Gringo Gulch, 10 minutes’ walk away from the Romantic Zone and from the beach. People say the area with its cobbled streets and mix of big beautiful houses belonging to foreigners and small simple Mexican houses, remind them of villages in Europe. Due to its partly Mexican neighborhood, you will sometimes hear singing, roosters, dogs barking, and of course, the church’s bells on Sundays and other Catholic holy days.

This neighborhood has kept some of its authenticity, everyone knows each other and greets one another.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: The hostess of Casa Malia is Beni, I am a French woman who after travelling the world for several years decided to settle down for a while in Puerto Vallarta. I can help you out in your everyday life in Puerto Vallarta and also for choosing your next holiday destination. Your other hosts will be slightly furrier, a dozen cats and one real mellow dog girl: Ushie. Ushie loves having guests as they are a constant supply of cuddles and treats All of my pets are rescues. Sometimes there might be another pet that I will be fostering until it finds its permanent home. I am pretty involved in various associations that rescue pets throughout the area (Puro Gato, Angelicat, LADRA, Peace Animals, Mexpup, Acopio). Casa Malia is a pet friendly home, any pet, provided it is well behaved, is welcomed here at no extra fee (but a deposit will be asked of you that will be given back upon your departure if your pet has caused no damages). If you are seeking to adopt you have found the perfect place to help you in your search (please do not buy pets, it makes puppy mills develop even more and stops a pet from getting saved and loved).

Why the Owner Chose Cerro, Puerto Vallarta, Jal., Mexico:
I visited several properties before picking this one. It seemed perfect for my needs to create an intimate guesthouse. Offering a magnificent view over the Sierras Madre mountains and part of Puerto Vallarta. As a European the charm of the neighborhood was unbeatable. I love the fact that during my walks I will salute most people and chat with some. It is a life that has a human dimension. I was burnt out on big cities after having lived 15 years in Paris.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
I can help you if you want to do activities that are a bit different. Among my favorites are: the Botanical Garden; the hike to Las Animas; the little creeks of Conchas Chinas where the water is crystal clear, also calmer so that you can enjoy swimming in safer conditions if the waves make you feel uneasy. And as time goes by, I learn new little getaways… Maybe you will feel like having a little ‘party’ of your own with the other guests of the house (there are only 3 bedrooms available for guests, so that you quickly get to know one another) and make your own meal or get some Mexican lady to come over and prepare you a delicious Mexican meal. Casa Malia guesthouse is a home where you can have company if you want to, or enjoy a nice moment alone. Even if you are by yourself and are too shy to travel or go to a nice charming place, don’t be. I totally know the feeling, during my travels I had to deal with that all the time. I will make sure you feel nice and cosy, and if you want to, I will make you share some of my personal life. My hope is to transform Casa Malia into a place where people feel in harmony together and with their surroundings. That’s why I did not want a bigger place, I wanted something intimate. Hope to welcome you very soon in Casa Malia !
