Holiday Rental House
Welcome to Casa Dos Palmas. Close to everything. Close to nothing. Your choice. Join us at one of the few remaining beachfront homes in Bucerias, and all of Puerto Vallarta. As more and more developers buy beachfront property for multi-storey condominiums or resorts, the number of true beachfront homes has shrunken to a handful. This is one of them. For those wishing nightlife, and crowded beaches swarming with beach vendors, you've come to the wrong place. For those looking for a fully modern, self-contained home directly on a sandy beach; for those looking for privacy and seclusion, but also access to restaurants and bars; for those looking for the real Mexico – its wonderful people, its simple charms, its lack of McDonalds and Hooters and Chili's restaurants – you have all come to...Welcome to Casa Dos Palmas. Close to everything. Close to nothing. Your choice. Join us at one of the few remaining beachfront homes in Bucerias, and all of Puerto Vallarta. As more and more developers buy beachfront property for multi-storey condominiums or resorts, the number of true beachfront homes has shrunken to a handful. This is one of them. For those wishing nightlife, and crowded beaches swarming with beach vendors, you've come to the wrong place. For those looking for a fully modern, self-contained home directly on a sandy beach; for those looking for privacy and seclusion, but also access to restaurants and bars; for those looking for the real Mexico – its wonderful people, its simple charms, its lack of McDonalds and Hooters and Chili's restaurants – you have all come to the right place. This 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 2 storey Canadian-owned villa is located in Bucerias, Mexico, approximately 20 minutes North of Puerto Vallarta. Often described as “what Puerto Vallarta was 40 years ago”, Bucerias has an excellent reputation among travellers. Moon Handbooks (Puerto Vallarta) confirms that, “Bucerias features the longest creamiest beach on the Bay of Banderas”, a point confirmed in Fodor's (Puerto Vallarta) 2008 Guide: “The beach here is endless.” Our guests rave about our property manager and concierge, Baldo. With near perfect English, locally-born Baldo will smooth your visit from start to finish. From airport pick-ups, to restaurant recommendations, to arranging in-casa meals (for a fee), to the best local hideaways, to arranging Bay or open sea fishing – or to just leaving you alone and checking in every couple of days to see if all is well, Baldo is fast becoming the reason our guests love, and return to, Casa dos Palmas. From $200 CDN/night. Rates vary by season, and length of stay. Note: We are new to TripAdvisor, but our property has been well-reviewed and is highly rated by previous guests. Please contact us for more information. More

About the neighbourhood
The beautiful beachfront property is located directly on the beach in the Bucerias, Mexico, about 15-20 minutes North of Puerto Vallarta. Bucerias is quickly becoming a favorite of Mexico travelers - close to restaurants, with a pristine beach out your front balcony - but far away enough away from Puerto Vallarta to retain its fishing village charm. Accessible by major highway, guests can arrive by car, taxi, or bus. The casa is perfect for relaxing - or taking out our kayaks for a paddle through the calm bay. Golf is close by, as is fishing and award-winning restaurants. Want to ramp it up? Head into Puerto Vallarta for a day of shopping, restaurants, and nightlife, returning home at night to your secluded villa.
