My husband and I travel all over the world. We found Casa de Banderas to be one of the most relaxing, beautiful places we have stayed. We felt fortunate to spend a whole month in such pleasant surroundings. The view to the ocean from the wall of glass sliding doors on the first floor was magnificent. We were mesmerized by the daily tides. At low tide many birds came to perch on the exposed rocks. It seemed they were mesmerized by the event also since we did not see them feeding, only watching. Before sunrise, a fisherman threw his net surrounded by pelicans. We shopped at local markets and prepared delicious meals in the adequately supplied kitchen. Highlights were the fish market in La Cruz, eating at Mark's Restaurant in Bucerias and the Vallarta Botanical Gardens. Although the public transportation is good, we recommend renting a car for your stay here.

Thank you, Kathleen and Phil, for your wonderful review. I also loved the Botanical Gardens. If you come again and like ancient history, visit the Alta Vista Petroglyphs. You can even swim in the "King's Pool" VERY wonderful. E-mail me for details and directions. Best wishes, Nita

Our family of five spent a winter holiday together at Casa de Banderas. It was easy to book and a great space for the five of us. I would recommend it for people seeking privacy and time together.....While the location was a bit tough to navigate walking to town, the manager Vanessa was always willing and available to call cabs to get us into neighboring Bucerias and la Cruz. The condo is nicely decorated and well equipped....easy to "eat in" if that's your pleasure.

Thank you for the nice review, Joan. The beach walk to town, at low tide, is a bit rocky in places but fun for tide-pooling.
Hope to see you again in the future. Nita

“A Private Haven with Stunning Views”
Reviewed 9 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We had the pleasure of spending 2 weeks at la casa and we are already in the process of booking our return.

First of all, the location is prime and offers stunning views of Banderas Bay and the surrounding Sierra Madre mountains. The house is located just a bit off the beaten path, which offers plenty of privacy; but it is also completely with in walking distance of both La Cruz and Bucerias via the beach.

The house itself is very nice with all of the comforts of home that one could hope for. Appliances, cookware and the like were all of good quality. They even had little extras like a garlic press and citrus press. We rarely used it, but the sky satellite television was available. The beds were comfy, the linens were clean and the bathrooms had plenty of towels.

The house has a fantastic little outdoor area with a very nice pool. Lots of pool toys are provided, as are beach accessories (umbrella, beach towels, cooler). The pool cleaner came by very regularly and was always super courteous about his timing.

The house is managed by a very wonderful, hard-working woman named Vanessa. She was available for us to contact any time we needed to have a taxi coordinated, etc. and she was always very responsive with any questions that arose.

For the price point, location, and quality Casa de Banderas is a great value. We would highly recommend renting this home and can't wait to return in a few short months.

We had a wonderful 2 weeks in this condo. Everything comes as advertised. Lots of good quality towels, sheets and pillows. The beds are typically hard Mexican style which was fine for my wife but I prefer softer which was accomplished by putting a lounge cushion under the bottom sheet; I slept like a baby to the sound of the breaking surf. Kitchen was fully equipped - lots of utensils, plates, etc. No automatic dishwasher but that was no big deal for us. Propane grill was super hot - great for burgs and steaks. Garbage and recycle picked up promptly. Swimming pool nice and clean with several inflatables available for relaxing in the pool. The property manager Vanessa was prompt and efficient. The housekeeper Annali was excellent; I'd hire her in a NY minute. If we return to Bucerias/La Cruz we will definitely stay here again if available.
