Casa Marilu III- ocean views, 3 min walk to beach, infinity pool & full staff
Description from the manager
Ensconced behind the landmark Los Arcos rock formation, Casa Marilu III is located ten minutes south of town, in the middle of the luxury hotel zone and close to the best beaches in Puerto Vallarta. Two hundred yards away is a secluded, sandy beach. The villa is also within walking distance from the famous Mismaloya Beach, which offers many beachside restaurants. Both beaches offer some of the best swimming and relaxation around.
The pristine, curved infinity swimming pool juts out over the rocks and sea below. The grounds at Casa Marilu III also feature a barbeque, as well as an alfresco dining area and bar. Indoors, you will find a home theatre, Bose music system, Wi-Fi access and baby equipment. Your reservation includes a cook and houseman who will prepare the food and drinks just to your liking. They are there to pamper you, so relax and enjoy! A housekeeper and a very efficient manager also visit the villa every day, to bring hot rolls, a newspaper and answer questions or arrange special events and outings. The staff is very friendly, professional and experienced to ensure a memorable and hassle free stay.
The villa is brightly decorated with distinctive Mexican furniture, colorful accessories and unique handicrafts. The kitchen comes fully loaded with a large center island. The main level living/dining area features elegant white marble floors lined with pebble mosaics, comfortable oversized couches, high ceilings and skylights, an interior garden, a stereo and bar. The large glass doors, usually left open, lead to a large, partly covered terrace right to the pool.
Four spacious and elegant bedrooms welcome up to eight guests at Casa Marilu III. Children are welcome. The bedrooms include en-suite bathrooms, ceiling fans and air conditioning. Easy access to the outdoors and preserved views of the ocean make sleeping and waking a pure joy!
Casa Marilu III offers beachfront elegance and modern perks at their finest. Options for many leisure activities such as surfing, sport fishing, parasailing, jungle adventures, swimming with the dolphins and horseback riding are also located nearby. From golf to shopping and nightlife, or just sipping your favorite cocktail while admiring the fading colors of the day, there is something for everyone under the therapeutic Riviera sun!

Puerto Vallarta lies along Banderas Bay, the second largest bay in the Western Hemisphere. It is located 352 kilometers (219 miles) from Guadalajara, the state capital of Jalisco, and it is nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Madre mountain range. The region has many forests, rivers and waterfalls, with an average temperature of 27°C (80°F).
Of its many attractions Playa Mismaloya, which gained fame from the film "The Night of the Iguana", is a popular celebrity hangout. The impressive rock formations of Los Arcos emerge from the bay's crystalline waters, which are great for diving and discovering incredible underwater mountains and steeps. The city hall has murals painted by Manuel Lepe, and the Malecon (sea wall) is adorned with romantic bronze sculptures. What’s more, the streets of downtown offer shops and galleries that sell local paintings and sculptures of local artists. The city, known for its top-notch services, also has golf courses, boutiques and a marina.
In Puerto Vallarta you can enjoy the exquisite regional cuisine of Jalisco, that so many people have come to love, and the terraces of open-air restaurants, where you can watch cruise ships roll in as you take in an incredible sunset.
Sport fishing is just one of many activities you can do during your stay in Puerto Vallarta. Each year, during the month of November, the International Sailfish Fishing Tournament takes place. Other activities available in this region are eco-tourism, extreme sports, snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, boating, golfing and nightlife.

Left on 03/02/2011 for a stay in January 2011 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Mar 2, 2011Stayed Jan 2011
My vacation at Casa Marilu in January far surpassed my expectations. It was even better than the photos on the website...which I didn\'t think was possible! The staff made the stay so easy and accomodated all our requests and were proactive in offering up ideas and suggestions based on their own expertise. It was a trip of a lifetime!
