“Amazing condo! Great location”

The whole experience at this condo was pretty excellent! From the beginning, Kathy and Gary answered all of my questions and concerns promptly. I also go prompt responses from Cristol (Nestor's assistant) about our airport pickup. The condo exceeded our expectations and was exactly as advertised! On our arrival day, Nestor picked us up from the airport and drove us to the condo. He showed us the basics once we arrived and showed us how to use the tram and the fastest way to get to the beach. We absolutely loved the condo. The master bathroom was awesome, and we enjoyed the beautiful view from the balcony and the private swimming pool. A few things to mention. The tram was a bit scary, but was reliable. There are a TON of steps you have to walk down to get to the beach, but it's only a 10ish minute walk. We do wish we were told the actual name of the street or actually how to tell taxis where were stayed as we confused a lot of taxi drivers when trying to get back to the condo. I do speak spanish, so I was able to get us there pretty easily, however, one of the taxi drivers told us just to say the name of the condo. At night, there were quite a bit of geckos inside the condo, especially at night, but I do believe this was because the condo is open. It didn't necessarily bother us, but want to mention it. Also, there is no air conditioning -- again, no issue, but it got a bit warm. The wifi was excellent and there was a phone where you could make international and local calls. We always walked down to the beach or to the local restaurants, and usually took a taxi back up since it was a bit, steep hill. I believe majority, if not all of our taxi rides were between 90 - 140 peso (at the time this was between 5 - 8 US dollars). Also, it was pretty easy to catch a taxi at the bottom of the tram/steps. I would definitely recommend this condo to others. If we ever come back to Puerto Vallarta!

We're so happy you had a good experience at Casa de la Rosa II. Thanks for the tip about just using the condominium name when directing a cab driver. I think we'll add it to the information sheet we provide each of our guests. We're also pleased you appreciated the unique Mexican style of the condo; the master bath is also my favorite room other than the terrace with it's amazing views. We would welcome your return in the future.

“Exceeded our expectations!”
Reviewed 24 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

From start to finish, everything about our trip was amazing. Gary, the owner, was quick to respond and was very professional. We were quickly confirmed and given information needed for our trip. Casa de la Rosa II was AMAZING - absolutely beautiful. It comes fully furnished, has a private pool, and the most incredible views. It is easily within walking distance or a short/inexpensive cab ride to the Romantic Zone. Nestor and his assistant, Crisol, were incredibly helpful and full of valuable information: where to go to eat, activities, how to get to the beach, etc.

The ONLY thing I could complain about is that we should have booked our stay for at least an additional 5 days!

This was our first time traveling to Puerto Vallarta and we look forward to booking another trip to Casa de la Rosa II.

We try very hard to make each guest's experience a positive one, and based on what you've written, we succeeded. We'd love to have you back on your next PV vacation.

“Romantica Zone Casa - Simply Incredible 5+ Stars”
Reviewed 10 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

person found this review helpful

We have traveled extensively and lived abroad for many years and we find this home and the surroundings to be one of our favorites , particularly its location, situated in a gated small 22 condo complex with incredible architecture and ambiance. Stunning views, the private pool on the large covered terrace takes this over-the-top and exceeded our expectations.
We wanted to be away from the tourist district, but easily accessible should the desire arise ... It never did! A short tram tram ride to the main road to catch a taxi 40-50 peso's or 15-minute leasrily walk down to the Old Town district was easy and you felt like spontinaity to do so was still in-play and not a problem what so ever .... The Old Town district (or Romantica Zone) was refreshingly clean, very friendly, safe and numerous good eating and drinking establishments ... But we bought groceries and made breakfast and lunches in the delightful kitchen and eat poolside, decadent! The living, master bedroom and bath we're exceptional and roomy. The guest bedroom was quaint and very cool space ... Walking right out to poolside.
Our initial contact and contractual obligations withe the Owner (Gary) where seamless and easy. With property management by Nestor who was an absolutely charming and informative person, who speaks perfect English.
You will not be disappointed ... Treat yourself to a very romantic and eloquent time, you'll never want to leave. Travelingtoes2

This place has it all. The moment you walk in, you know you picked the right place. The interior is very nice, the master bedroom is large with a king sized bed and the en-suite is beautiful. The kitchen is small but has everything you need to make breakfast lunch or dinner, plus there is a Weber grill on the terrace. Ah yes, the terrace. That is where we spent a lot of time relaxing when we were not taking in the sights or Puerto Vallarta. It has a small pool and a large enough area for both sun and shade. Great place to sip on a glass of wine and watch a sunset. We will look to rent this unit again the next time we go to Puerto Vallarta.

We stayed at Casa de la Rosa II for 3 weeks from February to March 2016. Gary and Karen promptly answered all of our questions prior to our booking. Nestor and staff were very helpful. We felt very secure during our stay and made full use of the condo.

We enjoyed our stay so much so that we booked another stay in 2017.
Thank you to Karen and Gary for having us back!
