“Our Favorite place!”
Reviewed 29 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The stay at Casa Joanie in Yelapa was by far the most memorable part of our trip to Puerto Vallarta! Owner Grace was very accommodating and helpful in recommending places to eat. This casa has perfect views of the bay and is at one end of the village just a stones throw from the Village pier. The casa itself is well appointed and most anything you would ever need you can find in a couple markets within walking distance. Highly recommended for a relaxing and bohemian getaway.

“Paradise overlooking the Bay!”

Three of us rented this lovely place. Grace was there to welcome and orient us, and had arranged to have our luggage taken from the water taxi up the hill to our casita. The open air and view was so relaxing. The kitchen was perfect for the few meals we ate there. Favorite was sitting with coffee or a drink and watching the amazing varieties of birds in our trees, seeing the boats, and just lazing.

“ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!”
Reviewed 26 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Grace and Scott were amazing hosts. They were staying in Casa Grace while we were there so they helped us settle in and told us all the best places to drink and eat, Fannys and El Pollo Bollo...
Such a glorious spot to stay.
They were so accommodating and friendly. Will definitely be back and recommend to anyone going there.

We had everything we needed at Casa Joanie. We loved that it was right in the village and the extra bonus of having Diego available should we have needed something. But we didn't need anything because everything was easy and comfortable:)

“Great, very interesting ten day stay.”

Spent the last ten days of November at Casa Grace. Same owner and next door to Casa Joanie. For some reason I couldn't enter Casa Grace on Trip Advisor. The caretaker Diego is a super helper and always smiling. Owner Grace was a wealth of information on every detail but this is Mexico and sometimes a restaurant might be only open for the busiest part of the tourist season. Location was excellent, overlooking the harbor and town. Downside is someone with mobility problems might not like the 75 steps up to the unit. Plus items are the Iguanas, the friendliness of the locals and being in a village that hasn't changed much in the last 60 years. The town did get electricity and water 12 years ago. So, enjoy every day and go with the flow.

“Quite simply: Paradise”
Reviewed 12 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Just wanted to send a quick note abut how much we've enjoyed staying here. Quite simply, it is paradise. Morning coffee on the balcony, breathtaking views from every room.... Just exactly what we were hoping for in every way. Can't imagine wanting to stay anywhere else.... And may have recruited a few more who'll wanna stay here as well.

My wife enjoyed watering and caring for the beautiful plants and we just couldn't have been happier.

Many thanks to Scott and Grace (who were INCREDIBLY attentive) and we'll reach out to ya again when we're lucky enough to have the time to come back to YELAPA!

Liked best: Stunning views. Access to all of Yelapa's amazing restaurants and the beach!
Liked least: The mosquito netting (when we used it) was a little too invasive onto the bed, but nothing major.

Oh lovely Casa Joanie!
I don't know how to put you into words fit for you! I stumbled onto Casa Joanie while planning my very first trip, anywhere. (I then stumbled onto the lovely Grace which is a blessing all in itself)
Yelapa is an unbelievable place. I couldn't imagine the beauty it holds without having seen that it really exists so close. The people of Yelapa are absolutely perfect. They make you feel like you are a friend, a part of Yelapa. It was like I had been living there my whole life. It is really something special. Casa Joanie made it all come together. It is beautifully decorated! Incredible taste, incredible lighting, a new patio, (which I hardly moved from) fully equipped bathrooms, kitchen, plenty of music, and everything else that makes it feel like it is a home. It is right above the beach where you can watch how serene the ocean is from morning through night. (I loved hearing the waves as I fell asleep each night) Grace had (the wonderful) Diego, help us with our bags to the Casa where he made sure we had anything that we needed. We didn't need anything, Grace really has it all figured out. Casa Joanie is the most well equipped, comfortable, BEAUTIFUL home in Yelapa. I am so lucky to have seen it for myself. I'm still trying to figure out if it all really happenedI I genuinely never thought that I would personally be able to go somewhere and absolutely forget about "real" life for an entire week. At least not without it dancing in the back of my mind here and there. But I am incredibly and pleasantly surprised to say that Casa Joanie did just that, made me forget every bit of it. Grace is a beautiful new friend I have made throughout this journey. She helped me every step of the way as I was obviously a traveling amateur! She's patient, kind, so caring, and graceful. I'm forever grateful she has shared this secret paradise with me.
She helped me reconnect with an old friend here which now holds such special memories for me

If you're looking for serenity, you've found it.
I will come back here for many lifetimes. ❤️
