4500 Sq. Ft.- 4-Bedroom Escape From The Ordinary, Mexican Hacienda With Pool!!!!
- english, some spanish
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.

Take me back to Casa Libra!
A total of 7 of us stayed at the house for a spring getaway and it definitely exceeded our expectations! All the other reviews say the same thing, but the pictures definitely don't do it justice. I didn't believe that going into it, but there is just no way a photo can capture how peaceful and beautiful the grounds and house are. It's such a lovely way to experience indoor-outdoor living in the beautiful weather of Puerto Vallarta. Short walk to town (yes there are lots of stairs!), but it's a lovely walk. The pool was divine. Optional heater for the evenings! Beds were all comfortable and having so many bathrooms really makes it easy to stay there with a group. And Effie! Effie is the best and we all fell in love with her. We definitely opted to hire her to cook for us and after the first meal, we added on another. She is an amazing cook and everything was made fresh and from scratch. Okay, maybe I'm gushing too much, but it was a LOVELY trip and we all raved about the house. We will be back!
A delightfully spacious Hacienda with a well stocked kitchen.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here for 2 weeks. The owners provide a graciously appointed traditional Mexican home. They nicely control everything one can control as an owner. What they cannot control are the endless buzzing of mosquitoes in the night and the nightly parties that go on in the street just below the home. These parties start at 11 or midnight and last until ~ 5 AM - lots of loud music from car radios and loud talking. I phoned 911 for the police almost nightly and received a rapid response or none at all. No one at the police station speaks English - I’m lucky to speak modest Spanish. We controlled the mosquitoes with a coating of repellent before bedtime. I would return gladly and will talk to the police at their station during daytime hours to curb the all night parties in the deadend street where the locals like to park & party.
The pool & deck area are delightful. Overall this is a fabulous property.
Great pool, close to town. Very enjoyable stay.
Pictures do this Villa justice. Six of us (two couples, two singles) have stayed at a few different Villas and this one rates high. The best things about this villa is the pool and the proximity to town. Lots of sun on pool area, and there is a pool heater which is fantastic for evening swim. This villa is close enough to the restaurants/beach that walking down the stairs was not a concern at all. Walking up is easy too, which is a huge plus but a cheap cab up the hill is an option that we used too. Be aware that the only view is from the master bedroom (which is freaking amazing). Two of the other rooms are nice and over look the pool. The fourth bedroom is a pretty sub par. Effe the house person was great. She did not speak any English, so communication was tough. We hired her to cook a supper meal for six and it was fantastic! I would definitely go back, but not if there was any chance I would draw the short straw and end up in the fourth bedroom.
We maintain the property inorder to provide the best for all of our clients and appreciate the opportunity to improve. Thank ypu.
Casa Libra was INCREDIBLE!!!
The pictures on VRBO do not do this villa justice! The estate has four very private rooms all with their own bathroom. The view from the master bedrooom is amazing. Effie was a spectacular house keeper and go to person for any questions while we were staying at Casa Libra! The owners were very responsive to all of our needs prior to checking into the house. I don’t think my birthday could have been any better! Thank you Casa Libra!
Lovely hacienda close to town. Effie the housekeeper enhanced the stay with her amazing cooking and care for us.
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.
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 orchid house display is something to see.
