What Past Guests Are Saying
Stayed at Casa Tonielle at Mar Y Sol Villas. It was first class all the way. It had all the amenities you need. Coffee maker and grinder, blender, microwave etc. A full kitchen and a view to die for. It gets a nice breeze blowing thru so no need for air-con. The views off the deck of the bay and beach are great. Sits central to everything. 5 minutes from beach and town. Liked laying in the hammock with a beer and listening to the waves.

Not our last stay here!
For my birthday this year, my husband whisked me off to Yelapa, where we had stopped for one day while on a cruise last year.
I highly recommend taking advantage of the money-changing recommendations, transportation to and from the airport to PV and from Puerta Vallarta to Yelapa arranged by Randy, house manager. It was smooth all the way, and you will meet some interesting characters!
Our apartment was clean, bright and airy, with fabulous kitchen. We loved the sound of the waves at night - why would one come all that way and wear ear plugs? The apartment was other wise very quiet, a feature that is very important to me. No one was above us during our stay, but I think the concrete block construction would have eliminated any noise problem, had there been other guests.
We couldn't resist using the free wifi, although the entire city was without power for almost 24 hour; no one seemed to be disturbed, and the beach front restaurants were open, as they had alternate power sources.
Stunning apartment right above the ocean!
We just loved our stay at Casa Tonielle! We are a family with a toddler and we met up with another couple, we were all super comfortable. Randy even provided a cot for our little one. We have traveled, renting apartments, all over the world and this was the best equipped kitchen I had the pleasure to use... an oven in Mexico?! Not to mention the best view too, my goodness! We got to watch pelicans, vultures, stingrays, and even saw whales breeching right from the comforts of our open air patio. Randy also provided assistance with every single step of the way from the airport to the front door of our apartment, and then some. His guy even took us the the grocery store the first night we arrived so we would have food that night. Can't say enough good stuff really, we hope to return here one day!!
Comfortable "Home away from home"
After much internet research, my husband and I settled on Mar Y Sol Villas for our Christmas visit to Yelapa. We are so happy with our choice!
This was our first visit to Yelapa other than a day trip, but we knew we wanted to stay somewhere that felt worlds away, with a small community, great weather, and friendly folks. We found what we wanted! The town is magnificent, with many great things to do as well as plenty of comfortable places to while away the day with a good book and a cold drink in the sun.
Randy & Judy have done a great job with this place! The decoration is wonderful, the colors & design are comforting and appealing as soon as you walk in. The casa had everything we needed in the kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom, with wine glasses, cookware, and more. Very comfortable king sized beds in the rooms (and the bedrooms are larger than they appear in the photographs!) We were staying with my parents and younger single sister who slept on the sofa bed - this is an open space without any walls, which is a good thing to know when booking, but the bedrooms were private and comfortable. We fell asleep listening to the waves and didn't mind the sound of the ocean, but they can get loud and you might want ear plugs if this would bother you.
The location is prime, set into the hillside with fabulous views of the beach, bay, and jungle. Quick walk into town for laundry or smaller local restaurants, also a fairly easy walk to the beach for the more touristy restaurants with beach loungers. His rooftop deck is fabulous as well, a place to enjoy the view, listen to music, or cook up some fresh seafood on the grill.
You need to know what you're renting, which is a house rather than a hotel. They do offer maid service, per the website, which we did not use but we spent time cleaning our own dishes and changing the linen during our 10 day stay (Randy provided clean linens halfway through). It's one of the nicer casas in town but it's not a luxury resort. The one thing we noticed is that there was a bit of dust/lint on some items (dishes, glasses, etc) but this was solved with a quick rinse.
Randy checked in with us almost every day to see how things were going, and was working hard as his wife Judy was in Canada visiting her family. He had answers for all of our questions and was super friendly. He arranged for someone to meet us at the dock to help with our luggage and find the property - by the way, Yelapa is so small it is very easy to find the place and you won't get lost. We went snorkeling with Jay, which he helped to organize, and saw Humpack Whales breaching!! We can't wait to visit Yelapa again and would love to stay in this same unit.
Excellent Stay at Casa Tonielle-- best location in Yelapa
We just finished a 5 night stay at Mar-y-Sol/Casa Tonielle and thought it was fantastic. The place is beautiful (new construction?) and we found that it was just like the pictures on the owner's web-site. We thought it offers the best location in Yelapa and is probably the nicest facility: it is right on the water with a wonderful open-air patio & dining area, is a very short walk to the beach, and is right on the edge of town so many dining options are easily accessbile. My wife & I both agreed that we liked this location best of anything we saw in Yelapa, especially since it's on the water. Randy (the owner) met us at the Pier, as promised, when we arrived and was an excellent host thoughout our stay-- he arranged for us to rent horses, made arrangements to rent a boat to Marrietas, and provided great restaurant recommendations. Yelapa itself was wonderful and we look forward to renting this unit again for a return visit!

I wish we stayed longer. It was a great vacation destination
Everything went smooth; Randy arranged pickup at the airport to the pier in PV. He met us at the village pier in Yelapa with Sipriano to get or bags to the casa. It was spotless and more beautiful than advertised. It was well equipped and had anything we could need. Randy was always available to answer our questions

To Die For
My wife and I were delighted with the brand new addition of Casa Toniele. The weather, the view, the hospitality from Randy and Judy were all 5 Stars. The daily fresh giant avocados from the tree next door were the green frosting on the cake. This was my first return to Yelapa in thirty-five years. It was worth every moment and every dollar/peso to make the trip. We will be back soon. Our hosts were wonderful.

Greatest experience of a lifetime.
Arriving in Puerto Vallarta was a little overwhelming, with custom, getting a cab, getting to the pier. Than we got on the water taxi to Yelapa everything calm down and the stay in Yelapa was like having our own town. We were met at the pier by Randy of Mar y Sol (Casa Tonielle) where we stayed. Randy and Judy were very helpful about restaurants, trips and tours that you want to take. We went horsebacking riding and swimming at the large waterfall. We took a boat trip to the Marietia Islands where we saw whales, dolphins, a mantaray and also went fishing a couple days with Yelapa adventures where we did very well at catching fish. Yelapa wasn't crowded, you felt like you could go anywhere you wanted anytime or anyplace. People are very friendly, most of them speak enough english that they understand what you need. We made some friends with the people there. we enjoyed the outdoor restaurants. My 10 yr old granddaughter doesn't like food except Mac/cheese and she loved the fish here. The weather was perfect. I could write all day and not do this vacation justice, you have to experience it. We were ages 10 thur 67 and there was something for everyone to do. We plan on returning.
