About our home

Our Mexico home is available now during COVID days. Available for points August and September 2021.

It is a RUSTIC home. There is no AC- no washer-dryer but a Local Fluff and fold laundry facility that we use. There is no dishwasher. There is NO TV but there is internet and there is a closet filled with game boards. If you want a true disconnect from media and time... a real vacation place to relax in the most beautiful location of Puerto Vallarta ‘ walk down our home steps to the beach then this is your place. If Tarzan had a home in Puerto Vallarta, this would be it. There are amazing ocean views throughout every single room in the house. Currently there is one bed in each if the rooms. The first floor has a full sized bed and the other two rooms have a king sized bed. For the first floor we do have an additional mattress if your party needs it but we’d have to place it on the floor alongside the other full size bed. Let us know in advance how many in your party.

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. Again, 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.

Currently Our outdoor dining table is not available but from the dining room there are ocean views. You are welcome to move the table to the Terrace for dining provided that you place it back so it does not get rained on. Fresh linens-towels are provided and the kitchen is stocked with necessary cooking utensils.

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.

Based on availability: If you order chef services, 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. Chef services are provided based on availability and must be ordered prior to your arrival to ensure it can be provided. This is an outside service and not a part of the house swap-rental and based on availability only.

Get settled, unpack, maybe take a swim in the pool, or perhaps in the ocean, just a short stroll away. Dinner can be served on the patio, under the stars, according to your schedule — regional Mexican cuisine,.

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. There is no Washer/Dryer but there is a Local Fluff and Fold Service Available right down the hill. 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 end of summer 2021 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.

There is a cleaning fee of $150 payable using Venmo Or PayPal.

    Because of Covid days we are more inclined to choose travel options that include driving to places within a maximum of 7 hour distance, but we are open to other areas provided that county is not closed to Americans traveling due to Covid. We love the idea of a trip to London inside the city close to HYDE park or in the Notting Hill area once it is safe to travel. We also would love to visit Montreal. We have family in Miami and New York City so we are open to these areas as well. Our children are avid readers, love art and museums/outdoor hiking and both the city and country settings as vacation destinations.

  2. Don is a producer in the film entertainment industry and Monica is an interior designer/house stager.

  3. We love theatre; music; good eats; spending time with our family; architecture; design; exploring; skateboarding; photography; art....relaxing. We love sharing our home and making new friends. We have been home swapping for a number of years and love this way of travel rather than hotel stay. We are are very clean and organized and will treat your home with the utmost care.
