Simple but peaceful retreat from the street in La Zona Romántica with its own little balcony, this room gives access to a rooftop terrace with a BBQ grill and a panoramic view of Vallarta and the lush mountains all around. Fresh coconuts, fruit, and tacos are right downstairs!

Der Wohnraum

Your sunny, 3rd-floor room is just enough removed from the street that it becomes an easy, peaceful place of rest as soon as you arrive. You'll have your own private balcony and overhead fan. The full-size bed comfortably sleeps 2 people. There's also a coffee table under the window and bedside table.

Zugang für Gäste

Within the apartment, you're free to enjoy the open-air studio/living room, kitchen (see house rules) and fast Wi-Fi. From the room, you'll also have direct access to the shared bathroom.
Upstairs, you'll have access to a rooftop terrace with a BBQ grill and beautiful panoramic views of Puerto Vallarta and the surrounding mountains - great for eating breakfast in the cool of the morning, basking in the sun or just relaxing and hanging out. =)

Interaktion mit Gästen

I'm happy to offer recommendations for things to do around town and the Banderas Bay, and can also offer personalized excursions guided by yours truly (including snorkeling, hiking to waterfalls, horseback riding, surfing, cliff-jumping and more).
I'm also available to provide private, 1-on-1 AntiGravity® Fitness classes in here in the home studio. The apartment has 2 bedrooms, and l use the 2nd one and will be in and out during your stay, but always available by phone in case you need anything.

Should you prefer privacy and just a simple place to crash while you go out and do your own thing, that's fine as well!

I'll give you keys once you arrive!

1. Make yourself at home. =)
2. I don't charge a cleaning fee, so please keep things tidy and clean up after yourself.
3. Leave the beach at the beach: Thoroughly wash off any sand using the water hose downstairs before coming up!
4. To help keep the sala/studio clean, please leave your shoes at the door.
5. This one is more of a strong recommendation than a rule: Because of the heat and the fact that there's no air conditioning (don't worry, there is an overhead fan that works well), please take a shower before going to bed. You'll sleep better and it will also help keep the sheets fresh!
6. There's limited space in the fridge, so please try not to overload it.
7. Wash your own dishes.
8. Because Mexican sewage systems don't handle paper well, the standard practice is to not flush the toilet paper. So I've installed a Thai-style "washlet" or handheld bidet for rinsing before using the paper to dry, which helps keep things a bit more sanitary.
9. When going out, lock the door if nobody else is here, and always close the downstairs door.
10. If I'm not around when you're checking out, please be sure to turn off the lights & fans, and close the bedroom door. After locking the apartment door, drop the keys into the studio space by reaching through the plants near the door. =)

We had a great time at Rafael's place. He was very helpful with our stay and we had some great conversations with him. He is very health conscious and a great human being.

Beyond this rental being an excellent value, being both very reasonable in price and very close to the beach, Rafael exceeded all expectations as a host. He made us feel like locals, giving us excellent recommendations on what to do and where to eat. He even took us to a tango party and set us up with a whale watching tour! So if you want a cheap place to stay in Puerto Vallarta and a great host to stay with, this is the place!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Rafa. He is super kind and friendly, exactly what you would hope for in an airbnb host. His home is all you need for a great stay in the Zona Romantica. It was clean and simple, internet worked and it is close to everything - restaurants, night life and oh yeah... The beach! Beautiful area to stay in with so much to do. He even has beach towels, an umbrella and two pop up chairs for us to use at the beach! The buses that go to and from the airport drop you off practically across the street from his house so don't even waste your time with a taxi- it was seriously about $0.35 per person for the bus as opposed to almost $20 for a cab and the buses fly through the streets! When we were leaving he even walked us over to the bus to help us with our luggage. Great guy, great place, great value, what more could be said?!

Rafael gave a clear description on how to find his house, which was very useful. He is willing to give you tips and show you around, but if you want to go your own way it is also possible. The location of the house is very nice, just a few minutes from the boulevard!

All the good reviews I read before booking were totally accurate. Rafa did everything to help us have a great stay. It's always best to book with a local who knows the area, but Rafa has the added benefit of being a native English speaker as well as being fluent in Spanish. He was warm and welcoming, and someone I will now count among my long distance friends. The apartment is very open air, and there is a roof top patio with a gorgeous view. I hope to stay with Rafa again.

Rafa is a great host who loves his city and is excited to share its beauty with his guests. My boyfriend and I wanted to have an easy and adventurous get away, which is exactly what we found. Rafa took us to a beautiful hike to a secluded waterfall, and also offered horseback riding and provided us with info on how to get around and the various bus routes to take to get to where we wanted to go. We love food, and Rafa took us to all of his local favorites and we enjoyed every single one. It was our first time in Vallarta, but we left with full hearts, great experimences, and made a new friend. Can't wait to come back!

Nutzerprofil von Rafael

I'm a Puerto Vallarta native that grew up in California and moved back in 2006.

What I love: entrepreneurship, web strategy & optimization, film & video, design & dev geekery, art, hugs, diving, climbing, etc. Mission: Exploring creation, culture, and making a difference in people's lives. =)

Music: Basically anything performed with passion, a good melody and talent.
Foods: I love spicy food - Mexican, Thai, Indian, Korean, and will try just about anything at least once.
Languages: I speak English and Spanish, basic Japanese and beginner Thai.
Travel: Outside the US, I've been all over western Europe, seen a lot of Mexico, Japan, Thailand, some of Malaysia and Taiwan. I prefer to couchsurf or use Airbnb and meet local people or stay with friends - it's so much richer of an experience than staying in a hotel!
