We have been owners of this property and have raised some of our grand children here for vacations and other events. Back in the '80s we fell in love with the area and people so much so that they are family friends today. How could we miss, coming from the midwest with those cold winters and ice and snow, this is the place. Since we can't always use the house we have decided to make it available for others who can appreciate it's beauty and relaxing atmosphere.
John/Patricia purchased this House in 1986
Why John/Patricia chose Alta Vista
A true Mexican Hacienda style house that has many unique features such as the many brick arches that accentuate the outer facia as well as the concave brick ceiling in the lounge area. We are completely private with room to move freely about the property
What makes this House unique
Great views while relaxing with afternoon refreshment and cool breeze above the entire bay.

A Perfect Vacation
What a wonderful place to relax. We had a great time. Taxi drivers got lost because Insergentes Road is broken up because of hills or highways- who knows why? but this small dead end street was very quiet. The views from the upstairs bedroom were fabulous and we all watched to sunsets together up there. What a gem Effie is. We enjoyed her and loved her cooking. I have recommend this vacation rental to my friends and relatives. Thank you John and Patricia for sharing your wonderful home.
Wonderful Relaxing Vacation - Beautiful Home
We just returned from our 10 day trip to Puerto Vallarta and our stay at Casa Libra.
WE WANT TO GO BACK!!!
Casa Libra is just as it is pictured in the photos and a whole lot more! You walk through the gate into an almost secret garden. Beautiful palm trees with several colors of bright bougainvillea flowers and a wonderful bubbling fountain made it such a tranquil space.
Effie, the house manager, welcomed us the moment we arrived and could not have been nicer. She showed us around the casa and then took us to awaiting Margaritas and snacks!
For this trip we coordinated to have a chef come to the house to prepare meals in the afternoons and evenings. The owners were so accommodating and allowing us to have our chef. The kitchen was well equipped and the meals came out incredible. If you are interested in our chef Hilda, you can contact the owners or Effie will have the contact info.
The house was maintained incredibly well during our stay and the pool served as a refreshing oasis for our group when we did not go to the beach. Plenty of pool loungers too. The master suite, was a FANTASTIC room with wonderful views of the ocean and towards Romantic zone and cathedral. The stairs at the end of the street served as an easy way to get down to the main downtown area. If you are not up for the stairs, a taxi is only a call away and will take you to the main old town city in 2-3 minutes!!
To say that Effie, Hilda and Casa Libra itself, made an impact on us, would be an understatement. When we were saying our good byes and thank you's, EVERYONE teared up. ALL of our group, Effie and Hilda!!
WHAT A FANTASTIC STAY!!

Your review is greatly appreciated. We strive to accommodate all our guests as if they were our family. We sincerely hope to see you back in the near future, we can assure you that your stay will be even better with some improvements we have planned along with Effie and Francisco. Thank you again for your review.
LOVELY HOUSE AND VERY CONVENIENTLY LOCATED
Upon arrival, Effie had a bowl of guacamole and pico prepared for us, as well as a refreshing margharita. The house was very large and the pool area was beautiful, as well as private. The house was very conveniently located, close to town. The only disadvantage to this was the around 160 steps you have to descend and climb to get back. We often opted for a cab to bring us back, especially when carrying packages or after drinking a little too much. Overall, it was a very enjoyable experience and I would not hesitate to stay there again.
Thank you for your comments, we hope to see you back in the near future.
There were 8 of us staying in this beautiful home. There was plenty of room for everyone without being on top of one another. The house is beautiful and the maid (Effie) was fabulous! I have stayed in many different places in PV. This was my favorite so far! Very well appointed and had everything we needed. Also there were many places to seclude yourself comfortably to get away. The location was great. Yes, it is up a hill, but very easy to access.
Perfect PV Casa
Great house ,clean and comfortable . Effie was so helpful, cooked a fantastic breakfast every morning, great location, great value for your buck. James Daly SF.
Thank you so much for the great review we love our house and Vallarta especially Effie she is family. Her family has been with us for 30 years THANK YOU AGAIN PATRICIA & John
Beautiful house and perfect location
This was the perfect accommodation for our stay! The house and grounds are well kept and have a lot of character. The maid Effie was fantastic, she welcomed us with guacamole and margaritas, helped us with grocery shopping and also made breakfast (highly recommend it, it's a fair price and a great way to start the day). The master bedroom view over the city is gorgeous. The house is located on the Alta Vista side of the old town; it's on a quiet part of the town which we enjoyed, but also just a 10 min walk to the beach taking the stairs shortcut (they are not so bad).
We are a 10 min walk to the beach , and the best restaurants in Vallarta's romantic zone. This is where you feel the old Mexico coming alive. You can take a bus or taxi to one of the best Botanical Gardens in the western hemisphere. The special orchard house display is something to see.
