Our Mexico home will be under renovation this coming Mid December 2019 and not available from this point on until construction finalizes towards June 2020.
Located just a mile south of charming Puerto Vallarta in the Conchas Chinas resort beach area, Casa Tres Coronitas is a beautiful 5,000 sq. feet, 3-story villa nestled on a tropical hillside with spectacular 180-degree views of the Bay of Banderas. This is NOT A FANCY house. It is a Robinson Crusoe primitive type Mexican home that is Just steps from a secluded beach by way of a private flower-filled garden, the Puerto Vallarta villa features three separate suites, and a pool. A chef and server can be ordered for a fee as well as maid service. We provide clean out maid service the day you leave. Swap or Points rental does not include staff or tipping. Our house information sheet will provide guidelines and other information about the house and area. A short taxi ride or pleasant walk along the beach delivers you to all the fine restaurants, shopping, open air markets, beaches and popular nightlife of Mexico’s premier Pacific Riviera town.
A Day At The Villa
Stepping from the airplane, a breath of humid, floral air welcomes you to tropical Mexico. A private driver can be hired to welcome you, whisking you into a spacious SUV. After a 20-minute drive through the quaint cobblestone streets of lovely downtown Puerto Vallarta, you climb into the jungle-canopied hillsides of Conchas Chinas to arrive at Casa Tres Coronitas — “House of the Three Little Crowns” as we call it. There are no TVs or air conditioning but ceiling fans. The house is an open concept indoor/outdoor home with shutters. There are no windows. Think “glamping with amazing views”... tarzan’s Lair.
Once inside, all you see is sea — for there are no west-facing walls in the villa, only shutters that melt away each morning as the house is opened to the sweeping views.
If you order chef services, our barman will bring you your margarita and give you a tour of the villa, while chef & Server (available for cost of only $50 usd a day for either breakfast/lunch service - or dinner hours 4:30 to 8:30pm - USD $50 service plus gratuity). (breakdown is usd $30 chef/$20 usd server -payable directly to them) Does not come with drinks/food/service.
Get settled, unpack, maybe take a swim in the pool, or perhaps in the ocean, just a short stroll away. Dinner will be served on the patio, under the stars, according to your schedule — regional Mexican cuisine, perhaps a grilled red snapper pulled that day from the sea, delicious chicken molé or the best chile relleno you’ve tasted.
Let the sound of the waves lull you to sleep. A private fishing adventure, perhaps, with the villa’s friend, Mario. A shopping trip into town, or a tour to the spectacular Botanical Gardens 40 minutes further south. Or possibly you’ll just want to choose what so many guests do — to open the shutters and spend the day at the villa — reading, relaxing and maybe just doing nothing at all.
Tipping/meals/drink cost are not included.
There are no TVs. We like it this way. Want to keep off the grid?? Don't log into our wifi and have a technology free vacation! There is no AC. This is an open-air home with fans. There are no windows/only shutters that lock and allow ventilation from ocean. It is steps to the beach and walking distance to town but in a secluded upscale neighborhood. Bring your own music if you like.
Barman, Maid (& Kitchen Aide) NOT included and does not include tipping. Please bear in mind that there is no dishwasher. It is a very “basic” older Mexican kitchen. We will be renovating this coming summer 2019 and will update that change in our description. This home has been in our family for ever 30 years and though in need of a face lift it is lovely for relaxing and kicking back.
we will provide you with house information page as well as suggested menu page if you should desire to hire staff.
There are many restaurants and activities that we are happy to recommend. Best time to visit PV is from October through Early June. The summer months are good if you don’t mind hot balmy weather.
If you rent a car, note that there is private parking in front of the house.
