We picked our location as it provides everything within walking distance. Art galleries, Restaurants, Public music events, Tiendas, Bars, and beaches. And if you want to go further afield - the bus at the bottom of the street. We also decided we did not want to be like an all-inclusive hotel but wanted an authentic Mexican environment and a view of Banderas Bay. Your deck is private - unlike other properties where you find you get to share a common deck with other building residents and their families.
Aldama runs up from the sea and vehicle access stops 120 yards from our Casa. The pedestrian access up has a ramp that works with suitcase wheels, you will still need to carry your case up some stairs. There is a Descanso (resting place) halfway up. My 90 year old Mom made the walk with only 1 stop at the Descanso, although we did carry her case for her! You have your own private entrance with an antique double wooden door. on day trips walk down and then get a cab back to the top of Aldama - it makes the walk up our hill more comfortable.
Interaction with guests
We have lived in our 3 level Casa in Puerto Vallarta for 11 years. We love living in a Mexican Barrio so close to all of the myriad of activities in walking distance. We take pride in our hosting package which is designed to make your visit memorable. Locally we absorb the full cultural experience which includes occasional barking dogs, children playing, cockerel crowing and Mariachi music. We live next door to you at the Casa and so know the area well and can provide a lot of our experience and the experiences of previous guests to you.
Other things to note
We live in a safe area - Laura has lived here alone when I have been away in Europe and has walked home from friends alone at midnight.
Culturally Mexicans look at silver as something to sell to the tourists but gold is a valuable commodity - so we tend not to wear it. The water is chlorinated and we use it in cooking but we supply you filtered water to drink "au natural". We will need access a couple of times a week to water the plants so let us know if you have a preferred time or otherwise we will try to time it for when you are out for the day.
The location of the apartment is not suitable for people with mobility issues as access is up a 150 yard sloped ramp and/or some stairs. No smoking in the home or on the deck as we live above and are allergic. No pets allowed and no loud noise after 10 pm. For the comfort and security of our guests and residents no unregistered guests are permitted on the property. Check in is at 3 and check out is 10 am and upon prior request we will try to accommodate alternate times but there may be an additional cost for us to provide that service. Lost key will be US$50 for re-keying lock. Temporary tattoos and bronzing lotions can permanently stain bedding and towels so if that happens you are responsible for their replacement.Hammock is an additional option provide by us for your enjoyment please do not use shoes, clothes with buttons or lotions when using it. As it is easily damaged we will remove it at your request if not required. We check it after every guest departs and if there are any pulls or damage to the fine fabric you agree that we can bill you for the US$100 replacement cost.
