“One of the most gorgeous places I have stayed!”
Casa Gardenia was one of the most beautiful intimate places I have ever stayed!!! I was fortunate to have stayed here in February/12 and Maria and Tito the owners made sure my stay was a wonderful one. I spent most of my days enjoying my book and napping at the pool. I stayed in a Suite on the 3rd floor which had the most gorgeous view of the Bay. The balcony provided the most wonderful quiet time and the suite was exceptionally clean and comfortable. I loved the location because everything was within walking distance... the bus to Mega, the shops, the beach and the restaurants. Casa Gardenia will and does provide everything you need to feel right at home. I would definitely recommend this gorgeous property. If you are considering staying here you better book now for next year because they have many repeat guests which should tell you something!

“Home away from home !”
Home away from home is the best way we can describe Villas Gardenia. From the time you arrive at the gate , ring the bell you are greeted with such a warm and inviting feeling, Maria and Tito and all their staff go out of their way to make your stay whether it be for one night or months so very enjoyable. Always there to help you or get anything you may need or just have a friendly chat. The grounds , gardens and pool are all kept so lovely , it's a tropical paradise. Rooms are very spaceous , clean and private, Kitchen well stocked with all your cooking utensils, oven ,large fridge and BBQ out in the common area where many Happy Hours have taken place along with the beautiful sunsets. Bed is very comfortable, lots of closet , drawer space. Washroom nice and large with a big shower,good water pressure. Great location for quick walk to the beach , close to shopping or heading into the quaint town of Bucerias to do a little shopping or have a meal at one of the many fine restaurants. We stayed for one month the first time at Villas Gardenia , enjoyed ourshelves so much decided to stay for two months the next year . Going back again , can't wait to see everyone.

“Villas Gardenia - A true oasis!”
My husband and I stayed at Villas Gardenia in January for four weeks. It was the most relaxing holiday we have ever had. The suite is spacious, with a window in the front facing the garden and small french doors in the back facing onto the private patio and the ocean, also gardens of bougainvillea. The whole outside area is beautifully finished in tile so it is immaculate and the stairs up from the road below are a work of art, designed by Maria. Such luxury! What we loved most was the private patio which we enjoyed every morning and evening and times in between when we were "home". We were told that an impromptu "happy hour" would happen by the pool occasionally where the guests in the neighbouring suites could gather if they wished. We very much enjoyed meeting others and it made for a very homey atmosphere. Most evenings the BBQ would be fired up as the sun went down. What an experience and what a view!! Sunset included every evening - free of charge! The location was perfect, right in the middle of town 2 blocks from the beach. Internet cafe - 1 block below. We enjoyed the stroll into the "old town" to pick up our fresh vegetables, fresh fish and seafood. There are wonderful restaurants nearby, all with a different atmosphere as well as lovely people. As mentioned by other guests, the bus will stop right outside the front gate of the villa heading to the Mega(the large supermarket)and onto Puerto Vallarta. Or if you wish, catch it across the street and head to Sayulita, San Francisco, La Penita and beyond. The bus ride itself is quite an experience! Who would guess a/c and movies! Shorter routes, different buses, different entertainment!! I visited a friend in Bucerias the previous year and took the opportunity to look at accommodations in town and viewed 12 to 15 - villas gardenia was by far the nicest and the best price. In 2012 we are returning for 6 weeks. Maria and Tito are the kindest of hosts and treat their guests like family.

“feels like coming home”
Donna and I have been staying at villas gardenia on and off (when vacationing in mexico) for the past ten years. We have always been treated like family.The accomodations are well cared for and staff are always friendly. It is very well secured and the grounds are beautiful. Villas Gardenia seems to attract only the best vacationers and as a result have had great visits with many of them and enjoyed reuniting with them over the years. As far as Bucerias is concerned, what a great little town with a wonderful variety of shops and restaurants. We can't say enough good things about our stays at villas gardenia.
“A Perfect Tropical Vacation Home”
We were very fortunate to find this vacation rental in 2000 and have enjoyed staying here since. Our hosts, Maria and Tito, provide the most excellent service in a relaxed and friendly way. I would say they go above and beyond expectations. They will pick you up at the airport, tell you where to shop, places to visit and even took me to the doctor one year! The villa we rent is on the main floor. It has a front and back terrace. Both terraces are accessed by 2 large patio doors, which provide excellent lighting inside. The front has a large garden with tropical plants and palm trees. The back terrace we use for lounging and dining and we love the panoramic view of Banderos Bay. Great for seeing the occasional whale and cruise ship passing by. The grounds and pool are picture perfect. Lots of patio furniture and outdoor bbqs. Inside the open plan villa is spacious and airy with high ceilings and modern fans. The kitchen has lots of cabinets and modern appliances. The dining, living and bedroom areas are tastefully decorated with Mexican furniture and art. The bedroom has a king size bed. The bathroom is tiled and accommodates a large shower. The best part for me is that there is maid service 3 times a week and they keep the villa immaculate. The villa is located on a hillside (great for a view) and is a couple of blocks from the beach. The beach is great for walking (for miles!) Boogey boarding, swimming and windsurfing are popular activities. Shopping is great in Bucerias and all within easy walking distance. There is a huge flea market, a variety of restaurants and many shops for trinkets, clothes and groceries. If you want a larger grocery store, Mega is about a mile away on the bus. There are lots of buses available to take to you on any adventure you wish, whether to Puerto Vallarta or Sayalita or in between. We love the villa and look forward to going each year to enjoy the tropical sunshine and renew past friendships.

“awesome vacation spot”
We have stayed at Villas Gardenia for several years and love it there. We always tell people it is a hidden treasure.From the main gate you see this beautiful big house and never realize what is all behind those gates.It is a surprise to see how the hillside has been incorporated into the design of the villas.The grounds and pool area are beautiful.The suites are decorated very nicely and are very clean. The owners,Maria and Tito,are wonderful,friendly people.They pick you up and drop you off at the airport and do their best to help out with any problems you run into while there. Cable t.v. and internet are supplied,which is kind of nice so we can keep in touch with what is happening back in our frozen Canada. The location of Villas Gardenia is great.The bus stops right outside the front gate to take you to P.V.,Sayulita or the Mega Superstore(which is only minutes away and has all the groceries you want) The beach is only 2 blocks away out the other gate.The beach in Bucerias is beautiful,you can walk for miles on the sand. Bucerias is a great little Mexican town with all the amenities:a flea market,vegetable markets,many great restaurants and lots of little shops for anything you might want. It is a perfect place to spend our winter vacation.We start counting the days until we can go back as soon as we get home(only 148 days to go) Herb and Carol,Saskatoon
Soon as you enter the front gates of Villas Gardenia you know that you are in a tropical paradise. The lush and pristine grounds with all the exotic flowers that are in full bloom and the gorgeous swimming pool soon make you forget the cold and snow you left behind in Winnipeg. We have been coming back to Villas Gardenia for a number of years, and upon arrival we still stop and just take it all in as if it was our first trip. The terraces with their breath taking view of Banderas Bay and surrounding area is a must in the evening, just sit, relax and enjoy the view! We also started our” Winter Getaways” in Puerto Vallarta, various places in Mexico and some all-inclusive hotels and then came across this gem in Bucerias through a friend. What a beautiful find! Villas Gardenia is located perfectly, just a block an ½ from the beach, and there is a bus stop practically just outside the front gates. You can either take the bus which is just minutes away from Super Mega supermarket or just a few extra more minutes to Super Wal-Mart in Mescales. Purchase your groceries and bus it back or treat yourself to a Taxi. If "cooking isn't your thing” there are plenty of restaurants in the area that will tease and please your palette. Bucerias and surrounding areas are rich in markets and local color. There is something to please everyone. The accommodations at Villas Gardenia are always clean and well decorated with a modern flare of Mexico (thanks to Maria Rodriguez's decorating skills) The Villas kitchen is fully equipped with whatever you need to cook meals if you so desire. The owners Maria and Tito, and their staff go out of their way to ensure that your stay is enjoyable and memorable. You will be "hooked” and will keep coming back just like us. See you in December!

“As always, a wonderful, very enjoyable experience.”
We started our winter getaways in Mexico at all-inclusive hotels from acapulco to Cancun, and in 2000 decided to try a rental in Bucerias. We had visited the town while staying in Nuevo Vallarta near Paradise Village. We fell in love with Villas Gardenia, not only from the beauty of the place, but the owners treated you like family. We have returned year after year, watching it grow, and it has only become better, with all the new technology available, as well as the wonderful, relaxing atmosphere of the place. The town, with lots of restaurants, church, beach flea market, and festivals is only a short walk away. It is very visitor friendly, for all ages, with alot of English spoken. They have a great Mega Supermarket where you can buy groceries only a few minutes on the bus you catch right in front of Villas Gardenia. Of course, it is fun to stop at the Mini Markets scattered around town to pick up a few things while you are out getting your exercise. We have visited quite a few places over the years, but will keep coming back to Maria and Tito's. Not only is the weather so much better than Chicago, but we are very well taken care of at Villas Gardenia, as are all of their guests. This is very important being so far from home.

“A relaxing , feels like home, vacation”
Everything said in the previous review sums up our experience. These rental units are a real find ! The location - great ! The staff -wonderful ! The apartment itself- clean , comfortable , roomy and fairly well-equipped. Bucerias has much to offer for those who wish to do something more than just relax. It offers a variety of good restaurants and some very unique shopping. We have stayed at Villas Gardenia twice and are looking forward to our third stay this year. Maria and her staff do their best to ensure that thier guests have an enjoyable time . Can't wait !
“Charming destination in Bucerias”
Villa Gardenia was our first experience with Rental by Owner. We found this an exciting experience, corresponding with the owners and seeing pictures along with details was very satisfying. On arriving at the PV airport we were picked up by an employee, very pleasant, offered to stop for us to pick up groceries, a very warm welcome. The Villas Gardinias is located near the main road entering Bucerias, however, the minute you enter the gate and the private gardens, you feel like you have escaped into a very private and beautiful space. The property is terraced, and we found it very quiet and tranquil. Our stay was in November which is the off season for Mexico. There were ourselves and two other couples who were previous guests. We found our unit very cozy, with a strong Mexican flavor, which we loved. The accommodations were very clean and had everything we needed. We loved our terrace where we enjoyed the view and sunset on a daily basis. The location was perfect, we were in walking distance to everything, Art Walk, beautiful Mexican Boutiques, Market, Margarritas, Fine and Casual Dining. We were just on the edge of downtown Bucerias, therefore, it was very quiet. There were buses available on the main street if you felt the need for an advernture to P.V., Sayulita, Rincon, or maybe just to the nearby Mega store where you could find any of your needs. We were two blocks from the beach, if you wanted to walk without going on the beach, lots of options. An affordable laundry nearby, second hand book store that trades books and if you enjoy arts and crafts there are classes just minutes away. My husband and I have been to Mexico many times, staying at other rental units, also at three and five star resorts. There was something we found a little bit special about Villas Gardenias, we are going for three weeks on our next visit.
