About Richard Anderson
I'm a software engineer living and working in San Jose, California. I bought Casa Rainbow as my retirement home, but since I'm not able to live there yet, I hope others can enjoy this beautiful home.
Richard Anderson purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Richard Anderson chose Bucerías
I love Puerto Vallarta, it's such a great place to shop and dine. But I bought in Bucerias to have a quiet place to relax. As it turns out, there are dozens of restaurants to try right in Bucerias!
What makes this Villa unique
One thing we can offer over resorts and condos is privacy. The pool and grounds are for guests only. And take a look at the pictures -- this gorgeous house was designed in a mexical traditional style, and built on a 1/4 acre. You'll have your own kitchen and outdoor grill, laundry, air conditioning, and all the comforts of home. Why stay at a cookie-cutter hotel when you have your own place?

J & D from BC
Husband and I rented the small suite downstairs for two weeks and had a fabulous time. The pictures are exactly how the property is, a very short walk to the beach and close to everything else. The area is secure and Casa Rainbow is a quiet little oasis. We had one small problem and I emailed the owner and within 4 hours the issue was addressed. We were extremely pleased. The kitchen is so well equipped, the manager Michelle was terrific, and the cleaning staff are amazing. Would highly recommend this property.
A fabulous week!
We had a fabulous week at Casa Girasol.From the first email to the last day everything we needed was taken care of by first Richard and then Michelle, at the home itself.
Michelle was wonderful when we arrived and very helpful with any info we needed to know.
The studio we rented was perfect for the two of us and we would definitely recommend this villa to anyone.Thanks again Rrichard and Michelle!
Very Nice Stay
We stayed at Casa Rainbow and enjoyed the old world Mexican style of the villa. It was great to use the pool after a walk on the beach and also after a long day of sunshine.
The caretaker/Manager met us the day of arrival and explained where all sorts of places of interest were. It was very handy to have a cell phone on loan as well. Our villa was very clean inside and very comfortable.
We would certainly tell our friends and family to stay there if they were staying in Bucerias.
What a relaxing week!
We had Casa Girasol for five glorious days and had the place to ourselves. Richard was so prompt in getting back to us and even had Michelle at the house when we arrived.she answered all of our questions and was so helpful. We loved the location and were able to walk everywhere we needed to go. Even a preloaded cell phone to use! Thanks again Michelle!

One Big Disappointment
We rented the villa studio for three months, Jan. to the end of March. We had been advised by the owner that it was a quiet location as that was a prime reason to rent for us. Nothing could have been farther from the truth. The couple upstairs had two small children. Slamming doors, screaming and running were a daily reality. Their dining room table was right above ours and we could hear every word they spoke. There was no peacefulness. Add to that a very tired unit. A kitchen with dishes and utensils that all needed to be replaced. Drapes and a tablecloth with holes. The "gym" is actually the garage with two dirty rugs and hand weights. The outside living room furniture is dilapidated and uncomfortable. I wanted to leave in Jan. and was told things would improve but they didn't. The manager was excellent but did not appear to have funds provided to even buy a new toaster for the unit. I left at the beginning of March. We were tricked and not told the truth. Very disappointing.
We had our first experience with long-term guests, and can only say that we no longer seek rentals of more than a month or so. All the the issues noted have been addressed. Optional antique plates have been removed, drapes a few with tiny insect holes replaced, new outdoor furniture installed, etc.
We strive to create an excellent experience, and value all feedback, both negative and positive!
Located 15 minutes north of the airport, the quaint Mexican village of Bucerias is within easy reach of Puerto Vallarta, but without the hustle and bustle of its neighbor to the south.
A popular phrase says that Bucerias is like Puerto Vallarta was 20 years ago. The cobblestone streets, relaxed atmosphere, and lovely town square of the village bear this out. The locals are welcoming, warm, and friendly.
There are many good shops and restaurants in Bucerias. Dozens of open air restaurants line the beach and the four main streets that run parallel to the ocean. But if you feel the need for a more active nightlife or additional shopping, it's only a short trip into Puerto Vallarta via bus, taxi, or available car rentals.
In town are many conveniences such as grocery stoes, pharmacies, travel agencies, car rentals, currency exchange, and tour booking information. There are even several ATM's in town.
Best of all, Bucerias has a wonderful five mile stretch of sandy beaches
Other Activities: Shopping, Boating, Parasailing, Shelling, Wildlife Viewing
Golf: There is great golfing at the nearby Flamingos Golf Course.
