Guestbook comments from the owner

Casa Mis Amores is a well kept secret. A quiet getaway where one can go to relax, regroup and unwind. Whether we just hung out at the pool, adventure into town, or took a snorkeling tour, we were content. Iced cold margaritas greeted us upon arrival with guacamole, salsa and quesadillas (all done by staff, Juan & Paula) Can´t wait to return to this extraordinary getaway.

Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying here. It was a wonderful retreat to return to after our excursions. We enjoyed the patio with the pool the most! We had cocktails at sunset on the patio followed the next morning with coffee by the pool. The views from the home are incredible.

We are a family of five with two teenagers and a ten year old. This house gave us the room to spread out and everyone have their own room! We went on a day trip to Yelapa, which I highly recommend. Transportation was easy. We either caught the bus, which is 8 pesos and can be caught at the bottom of the hill or Juan coordinated taxis in advance for us. We had dinner at Le Kliff which had amazing views too, and recommend that as well! We really enjoyed our time in South PVR! We will be back!

Beautiful view and perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Mis Amores is an ideal place to stay while in Mismaloya. The view from all 3 levels is stunning, the proximity to the town of Mismaloya is ideal and the house is beautiful and perfect for all your needs. Six family members stayed here for 5 nights for a wedding and we were all so happy with this house! Plenty of room for everyone for sleeping, chilling on the patio, eating together at the table and just sitting around watching the view. The caretakers of this house, Juan and his wife Paola, are so gracious, kind, helpful and generous with their time. They cooked a traditional meal for us the first night which was fabulous. They prepared a breakfast every morning of fresh local fruit, toast and coffee. Juan helped us arrange a boat trip to Los Arcos, Animas beach and Majahuitas. I would recommend allowing Juan to set up a trip with just your group rather than booking a large tour. Taxis are located just down the hill which is walkable during daylight hours. Taxi drivers know the name of the house & location which makes it easier to get home! Before the trip, Shelley was so helpful giving us lots of important information regarding restaurants and local attractions. She was always available to answer my millions of questions too! If you're looking for a place to stay away from the hustle and bustle of Old Town Puerto Vallarta, I would definitely recommend Casa Mis Amores. You will not be disappointed at the beauty!

  • 4 of 5

Only negative was that all the beds are pretty hard which might be good for some people. The pool was awesome, shower in the master bath was incredible. Overall a great experience.

Beautiful views, Great for family's

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Casa Mis Amores located in Mismaloya over the Christmas holidays. The responsiveness of the owners, Shelley and Manual was great and they helped us plan our vacation stay and this was greatly appreciated. They provided detailed emails and communication of what to expect and offered sound advice on activities for our stay. This included restaurants, boating, fishing, snorkeling and transportation recommendations.

The house care takers Juan and Palio where wonderful and provided a personal touch to our stay. Upon arrival into Puerto Vallarta, Juan met us at the airport with transportation. We made a stop on the way to Casa Mis Amores to purchase groceries for the week. Upon arrival at the house Juan and Palio provided chips and salsa along with drinks. Breakfast was prepared every morning and was excellent. La Kliff was recommended for dinner as this is a short 3 mile trip via taxi and the food, drinks and sunset views were amazing.

The week was great with a wonderful home with a truly million dollar view. The home has a luxury master suite on the 3rd floor with his/her bathrooms. The main floor provided great areas for our family to enjoy games at the dining room table. The downstairs provided 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms for our adult children and this level walked out to the pool area. We enjoyed grilling out by the pool area.

If you are looking for a vacation spot away from the main tourist areas Casa Mis Amores is the home for you. Again Shelley and Manual were wonderful to work with and we highly recommend Casa Mis Amores. Five Stars

Views to die for and hospitality like non other!

  • 5 of 5

From the airport we were greeted by Juan and we're driven to a local Walmart to stock up on groceries for the weekend before being shuttled to Casa de mis Amores. At the Villa we were again greeted by Paola who would be preparing our breakfast every morning. Both Juan and Paola were extremely accommodating, going out of their way to help us fill up pool inflatables, connecting us with local adventures such as horse back riding, boat rides and scuba diving. Their hospitality alone allowed us to truly feel like royalty.

From the top of the hills were magnificent views from every room. A beautiful breeze swept the entire house. There are three beautiful levels with plenty of space and drawers in each room. Showering while having a perfect view overlooking the jungle and the sea was especially delightful. Having a personal pool made our time spent at the house most memorable.

Our drive to local restaurants such as Lekliff and tequila tastings was beautiful as we wound through the jungle. Our adventures in the Malecon were just a few minutes away. Ther we came across beautiful local shops, and a nightlife that had a little bit of something for everyone!

We will definitely be revisiting Casa de mis Amores!

Casa Mis Amores is nesteld in the hills of Mismaloya, overlooking pristine Banderas Bay, one of the more exclusive areas of Puerto Vallarta. Stunning panoramic views of the ocean and jungle entice the soul. Bird watching(at times whale watching)can both be done from any patio or terrace at Casa Mis Amores!!! Watch flocks of chattering green birds fly by at any time of the day! Hear the 'big cats' from the Mismalya zoo in the afternoon to add the real jungle flavor to your trip. The zoo is within walking distance. Tequila tasting, horseback riding, snokeling, beach activities, boating, jet skiing, whale watching, surfing, water taxis, boating tours, beach restaurants, massage, jungle canopy and zipline tours, atv rentals, hiking, are all within walking distance or a short taxi ride from the house. Mini marts are closeby in Mismaloya. Catch the bus down the hill for a short ride to downtown Puerto Vallarta for about fifty cents. Taxis are only a phone call away, or a walk down the hill. An ATM is located near the Barcelo Hotel down the hill. Movies, grocery stores, clothing mall, flea market, discotecs, manicurists, hairdressers, bars, restaurants, airport, bus station, harbor, hospitals are all found in downtown Puerto Vallarta, about 10 minutes (15 minutes for bus) or so from Mismaloya. The airport is 30 minutes away or 45 with traffic. The Botanical Gardens can be visited by catching a bus down the hill. It is located about 20 minutes further south. At the end of our street you'll find the set of the film 'Night of the Iguana' (starring Richard Burton). Take a walk, ride a horse, or take a cab to the movie set 'The Predator'(Arnold Scwarzenegger) just past Mismaloya town, in the jungle. You'll end up at El Eden where they have a swimming hole, waterfall and restaurant. Tie up your horse, go for a swim, then grab a beer and some nachos! When you get back to the house take a shower over looking the ocean. If you'd like, we have a chef that can cook some of the best authentic Mexican cuisine around for a small fee. In addition to that, we can help arrange any of your tourist activities and will seek out the best prices.
