My husband and I stayed at Dulce Vida for a week in November 2012. We were staying at an all-inclusive for a wedding prior and were overjoyed to find this perfect spot afterwards. We really love luxury and exploring new places. This was that....a beautiful casa in a surprising and lovely city. (first time in PV) The all-inclusive was nice...

In Puerto Vallarta you can find a hidden paradise, it's behind the facade of touristic traps and will give you a feeling of something which is just there to be found by you. As you approach this beautifull casa you'll maybe think your just not at the right place but don't let that fool you, you are about to enjoy...

My husband and I stayed at this fanastic place for 10 days in November 2012. Audrey and Lee were the most gracious kind hosts. Great views and close to the bus and Malacon. Close to some of the best restaurants in PV. We stayed in Casa # 3 which had plenty of room for a couple with your own private...

Dulce Vida is an excellent choice if you want to avoid the Puerto Vallarta ‘hotelzillas’. The area generally isn’t as quiet as La Zona Romantica - busses and trucks roar up a lot of PV’s main streets for reasons known only to the local planning authorities - though it is at the top of a quiet street. Nor is it...

Casa Dulce Vida was the perfect place to stay. Everything -- from the spacious and comfortable apartment, the step out to the pool (and the morning and evening swims), the views, and our affable hosts -- made for a great start to travels through to the interior of Mexico. Thank you very much for a relaxing and inspiring stay.

We had looked at a different hotel in the same price range and the difference in quality and space was unbelievable.Casa Dulce Vida was a couple of blocks from the Malecon and a few blocks from the Romantica Zone - so it was a perfect location.

Dulce Vida is a rare gem in the wonderful old town of Puerto Vallarta!

My wife and I stayed here for two weeks at the beginning of Dec 2010. We originally had the rooftop casa, but the stairs up and down were not to our liking, nor was the construction going on adjacent to Dulce Vida. So, Shawnalee gave us another room which was perfect. There is a bird across the street that squawks...

“We loved Casa 5, it would be perfect for a couple or small family. There is a small tienda across the street that has everything you need - beer, soda, snacks, etc. And there is an incredible restaurant, owned by a Mexican woman that serves delicious home-cooked meals, for cheap. The "agua de jamaica" is a must-order.”
