“Exceeded expectations in nearly every way!”
Absolutely beautiful property! Pictures do not do it justice and neither can this review. Interior of the home is wonderful- the decor, colors chosen, artwork, Mexican pottery and tiles- all lovely. The terrace is the place to be though- ocean and mountain view. There is a large swath of uninterrupted tropical forest that flows down the mountain and past the villa. Waking to tropical birdsong and to watching them flit in the trees as I drank my morning coffee on the terrace- divine. Saw whales and dolphins from terrace- got a great photo of a whale jumping (bring your zoom lens!) The potted flowering bushes on the terrace were lush and gorgeous. The Santorini inspired domes atop the neighboring villas added to the view. The bougainvillaeas throughout the villa complex were stunning. Can't forget the pool- private, warm, infinity with ocean view says it all. The place is about a 10-15 minute cab ride from city center- cost 100 pesos (I'd give 120 with tip, about $12). There is a cab stand on the main road not far from the villa, so the cabs arrived surprisingly fast (5 minutes). We enjoyed cooking in the well stocked kitchen and had lots of fun fumbling around the grocery store (Ley) with our limited Spanish. Standing at the kitchen counter doing prep work while watching the sunset over the ocean- idyllic. Nutshell: pros: Private, gorgeous, well-equipped (washer/dryer, linen, kitchen, etc), wonderful fixtures/decor (bathrooms, art, etc), totally unobtrusive staff. Surrounded by flora and fauna. Pool! Charming cobblestone villa complex, popping with floral color. Cons: Distance from town (not a problem for us, but maybe for some). Front door lock is tricky and gave me fits until I learned the trick. My wife complained a bit of construction noise, but wasn't an issue for me. Its probably 1/3 mile away and really not that loud or intrusive (its not like there's a jackhammer crew in front of the place!). 100% recommend and can't wait to go back!
We hung out, read, played games, and sat in the sun.
My husband and I spent a week at this beautiful villa. It's on the south side of PV which is quieter and a little less touristy than other parts. The house was so wonderful, we never really felt the need to leave. The view is spectacular and the bus stops right at the Villas. You can get to the shopping and restaurant district with a short bus ride into town or you can take the bus two stops south and visit a sweet little beach village with great beer and food. I don't recall the name but it's the last stop on the bus route. Also definitely take advantage of the grocery shopping service. It was great to have food on hand and just sit on the massive patio, swim and enjoy the view.
“better than a dream...”
I have had to stay in Presidentail Suites for my job, and never have I had anything close to the kind of experience I have had at Casa Romantica. The rustic elegance flavored with the Mexican decor of this villa, made us never want to leave. It is the first vacation I have taken where I truely didn't care if we ever left the house. We were able to see the whales jumping in the ocean from the outdoor patio. We cooked some of the best meals ever on the outdoor grill with the local fruits and vegetables. We even went to Costco and bought our favorite meats. The staff took care of our every need and made us feel so welcome into the beauty of the latin culture. My husband and I felt like it was the closest we would ever know what movie stars feel like, by having this private pool, veiw of the ocean and unbelievable villa, (not to mention the seclusion you feel from the rest of the world.) We are booking for next year now, and every year after. Thank you so much for this experience. Hotels are no longer part of our vacation destinations.
“Lovely Honeymoon Spot”
My new wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Romantica... The views are magnificent: whales jumping in the ocean on one side, and birds/flowers/jungle mountainside on the other. The villa is well maintained and most every detail has been considered. The private pool and hot tub were a luxurious touch. We will be back!
“Villa of a Lifetime”
To those that may read this, there are no words to describe our week at Casa Romantica. Upon arrival you'll know immediately that you have arrived at your 'vacation of a lifetime' ... The photos of Casa Romantic do not do it justice. The lens cannot capture the warmth you will feel within the walls of the spacious 2 bedroom villa. The staff is kind beyond description and adds to the entire experience. The sound and view of the lush tropical jungle steals your attention from the turquoise coast almost constantly, but it is a pleasant and welcoming distraction filled with a symphony of colorful parrots and other breeds of strikingly beautiful birds who pass so closely that they are nearly within your reach. It smells of romance, intrigue and relaxation, but don't let it fool you, for it also touches the very soul of your adventurous side and may well affect you to hike, ride burros and zip line in heights normally out of your comfort zone and then leave you begging for more. Yes, Casa Romantica is the place to spend time with people you love and want to re-connect with. It feeds the heart and mind while starving stress. We rented a jeep for the duration of our stay and found it to be the perfect accompaniment to the villa and recommend having a vehicle should you manage to tear yourself from the 80 degree infinity pool. No easy task I'll admit, but worth it if you do. Although we loved the Malecon for shopping, our greatest treasures were discovered off the beaten path in small obscure shops. You will find a smile on nearly every face your eyes fall upon. The smiles are genuine, a blend of vacationers and locals. Everyone is comfortable in their own skin once they've shed the burden of everyday life. We encourage you to waste not want not and begin shedding the moment you arrive. The only downfall or negative for us is that our time passed much to quickly and we mourned like a grieving widow as we departed. Ms. Spencer Betz Oceanside, CA
“Don't tell anyone about this place!”
Look the problem is, when you find a great place, and you tell everyone about it, everyone wants to go. Then we cannot go back because it's always booked. So, don't read this review. This is not a mega resort; there are no bars/discos on site, and no time-share sales people. Town is at least ten minutes away. It’s quiet all day, everyday. All you ever hear is the waterfall in the pool. Alberto (we miss you amigo!) will interrupt your morning coffee on the deck about 11:00 AM, to check the pool and to sweep the fallen flowers up in the morning. Yup, it's pretty hard. The home is way too clean, and the bathrooms are not like a hotel. The shower alone is about the size of the whole bathroom you expect in a resort. IMHO it’s too big, as two people have to shower together! Same goes for the king size beds – they are just too big and comfy, you won’t want to get out of bed. And don’t get me going about the kitchen. We like to cook so we spent way too much time there - eating. And finally, the south facing pool is really, really hard to take. It interrupts your sun tanning time every 15 minutes - over and over. When you get in the pool, the view just distracts you from pouring another cocktail. I don’t know how you can ever enjoy a vacation like this! So take my advice. Don't go - it's just too hard to leave, and make sure you don’t tell anyone about it.
We loved Casa Romantica! Karen made the booking process so easy! We're low maintenance so although they have a maid come by daily, we asked that she only come every few days. The house was stocked with useful things as well -- from beach towels to binoculars -- they had us covered. The pool was amazing! The view overlooked the forest, mountains and the bay. The only draw back was that the spa took a few hours to heat. Also, the satellite tv was a little unstable but there were plenty of DVDs to entertain us. The Wifi was a bit slow but lucky for me that meant my husband couldn't work! One of the most useful things in the house was the information book. I knew if we needed anything that we could sneak a peek in there and find it. This house also has modern conveniences such as air conditioning and blow driers. Overall, I definately recommend this house to anyone who needs to get away!
The house was absolutely wonderful. Very peaceful and secluded. Beautiful views from the pool and deck, which is where we spent most of our time. Next time I'll hire a car to get around, although taxis were very easy.
