We loved our stay at Barry and Laura's home. The hike up the hill got to be a bit much once the temps got up there but all in all it was a great place. Loved all the church bells and the sounds of the neighborhood children.

There are not enough adjectives to describe how great our stay at Barry's home was. The space was clean, homey, spacious, and had everything needed for a short or extended stay. Barry and his wife made our Check-In very easy and even provided us with fruit, coffee, cookies, and bread to make the start of our stay more comfortable. Their tips on beaches activities were spot-on and helped us get the most out of our trip. I can honestly say only great things about Barry and his home. Also, you will never tire of the amazing view from the patio. Highly Recommend!

The house is as pictured perhaps even more spacious in person the bathroom was fine the kitchen was lovely the veranda is just exquisite you can sit out there all day and as the sun goes down you get glorious sunsets everything about the house and the hosts was wonderful but I must say it takes a fairly sturdy pair of legs to climb From the beach back up to your home. INdeed there were several nights when we wished to go back downtown and,frankly, the long walk down the cobblestone street and back up again made us decide otherwise. one does get used to it but honestly, it takes a few days. BUt the home is inviting, the weather on the hillside is so great -cool enough to dive under the soft blanket at night and cuddle up. We loved our stay, shopping around the corner for a few groceries, the view, the fireworks every nite around 9 that seemed to be directly aimed at your bedroom window. A great stay!!! And the hosts were perfectly lovely.

Thanks Andi for your suggestion that our photos really do not show how large the apartment is - we will add some more. We look forward to seeing you again.

The apartment is exactly as described, spacious & with a fabulous bed. Our hosts perfect. And being up high had great views and a cool breeze. There are local Mexican neighbourhood noises, so if you are a light sleeper bring some ear plugs. Sunset on the deck with a cool drink just magical. We are so relaxed I've forgotten the day. As per other reviews, there are easy stairs (you get use to that pretty quickly) which means no traffic !!!

Barry and Laura were great hosts and the apartment we stayed in was simply beautiful. It is a bit of a walk up the steps, but is ultimately worth it. I especially liked the large deck overlooking the hill and the ocean.

The trip started with a last minute booking for the room, and everything was still great. Barry notified me quickly that the place is available, and sent me very detailed directions on how to arrive to the place. As many have mentioned, the neighborhood is an actual neighborhood, filled with running children, small tiendas, and an authentic felling to the place. It is right down the street from the Malecon, as well as to many of the awesome restaurants that are about 5 minutes from the house. The house is great, clean, and with an awesome view from the balcony. The hammock is a great addition, and much needed for the "siestas" that happen typically after lunch. The house overall is well stocked, and even had a few cold beers waiting for us upon arrival. Overall, Barry and Laura were amazing hosts, and even greater people. They really embody what you would expect when visiting a close friend or family member, and make your stay with them as such. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay at, and will definitely return if possible. Regards, Adan

Our stay with Barry was everything I have come to expect and love of Airbnb experiences! The space is as specified (and consistent with the pictures). The bed is amazing; everything you need is available and easy find in the house. Barry is incredibly helpful and easy to connect and communicate with. The when in Mexico warnings: hot water is slow and tepid compared to Canada winter standards, but it does happen. If you are looking for quiet - this will only work if you exclude the dogs, the roosters, the city, the neighbours, and... ;) If you are looking to be in the thick of the culture and have a nice breezy retreat from the heat - this is definitely the place. Do not go to Puerto Vallarta without visiting Tortilleria Aries (and get panela from the cheese man there), nor without the coconut marguerita from marguerita grill to go with a treat from the bakery across the street.

Response from Barry:
Glad you enjoyed your stay and thanks for the gift of the cheese! Sorry if the water was not warm enough but actually it is easy to move the dial to a hotter temperature.
