Julie is a SuperhostSuperhosts are experienced, highly rated hosts who are committed to providing great stays for guests.

My home is "Hacienda Style" offering Outdoor Living in the centrally located courtyard. I live on one side of the courtyard, and you have a cozy guest suite on the other, which is completely self-contained and private, basically 2 rooms: living room with kitchenette, and bedroom with bathroom. It’s comfortable! Typical Mexican Family neighborhood. Walk daily to pick up fresh produce, fish, bread, etc. Get to know the venders and learn some Spanish! You will "Live like the Locals"!

Authentic experience in a true neighbourhood away from the tourist tracks. Julie provided over and above attention.

Thank you, Brian - "Authentic" is a great word for describing my little corner of Puerto Vallarta. Glad you enjoyed yourself!

Julie’s Lavender Hacienda was everything we expected and more. Julie made us feel as if it was our home; very clean and comfortable, and a great location for our cultural experiment of ‘living like the locals’ which was an enriching experience we could not have gotten at a typica…

Response from Julie:
I am SO fortunate to have hosted Wayne and Ross. They truly embraced my neighborhood, and actually showed me places I didn't even know about! They made friends with the vendors at the market place, who, when I go for fresh produce and the like, still inquire about them - and ask if I know yet when they are coming back. Imagine making such connections....even with a language barrier! They not only "Lived like the Locals", but also were ADORED by the Locals! We had long conversations in my courtyard, and many dinners together (Ross is an EXCELLENT cook! - Lucky me!) If you ever have the chance to host Wayne and Ross - take it! Believe me, it's a privilege!

Wow, Julie is an outstanding Host. You find anything in this apartment and more for a comfortable stay. Extremely clean unit with a king size bed, my wife and I enjoyed. The bus is just two blocks away and take you right into PV for 7.50 pesos. We would stay again , next time in …

Her apt is as advertised.....given the location Uber sounds like the easiest way of getting around, keeps her property clean and neat

My husband and I enjoyed our stay in this town. It was a short 10-15 minute drive from the airport and about a 20 min drive to el Malecón. We walked around to the plaza in Pitillal and often took Uber when we didn’t feel like walking around. Depending on where we were going Uber …

So glad you and Javier enjoyed Puerto Vallarta, Marivel - and yes, the locals are just wonderfully warm people. I love my neighborhood and my neighbors. Glad I got to share it with you two!

Staying at Julie's place was a dream! The guest house is comfortable and cozy, the courtyard is cool even in the heat of the day, and having friendly pets around makes the place really feel like home. Julie has thought of all the details, including tips for public transit and a m…

Thank you! Your review captures the essence perfectly of how I feel about where I live, and makes me smile. It brings me joy that you were able to tap into what this area of Vallarta has to offer. I feel so honored that you chose my place for your vacation. "We" would certainly love to see you both again in the future. Mi casa es su casa....

I have spent over forty years on the road, working in well over 60 countries prefer to get to know the people and cultures. I prefer adventures over 5 star hotels and would rather eat at a taco stand than some 5 star chop houses. The great thing about Julie's place is "Julie". …

Thank you, Randy. I'm so, so honored that you chose my place to have your Mexico adventure. I also enjoyed our conversations under the palapa, and have to admit I picked up a few "pearls" from you (inside joke!) You are welcome back here anytime at all....and I do hope you return some day.

The best decision of my life came in 1994 when I decided to leave So. Cal. and move to Puerto Vallarta. It’s “home” for me, now. I took an early retirement from school teaching, and started this new life adventure. If I could live 200 years, I’d relocate again - perhaps to Ital…
