About Margaret

Your hosts Margaret Parrish and Jon Christopher Jones welcome you to their perfect beachfront escape in sunny and warm Puerto Vallarta, Mexico!

Margaret, an army brat that has lived all over the world, first fell in love with Vallarta during her honeymoon in the mid 80s. After selling a thriving small café in Salt Lake City, she quickly became bored. Her dreams always brought her back to Vallarta, the place that she fell in love with the minute she arrived.

Jon was a friend of Margaret’s from Salt Lake City where he owned a successful travel agency - the Travel Zone. Ever since a spring break trip to Mexico in high school, Jon’s goal was to one day move there. Jon’s extensive background in hospitality as the Director of Coca-Cola’s Global Hospitality program for the 2002 Olympic Games and many other projects for the Olympic and Paralympic Games, was the perfect training ground as part owner of a pair of hotels.

Together, in 1997, they rescued a diamond in the rough on the perfect beach in Vallarta and Quinta Maria Cortez became a reality after months of renovations and improvements. Just three years later, the neighboring property became available, and Casa Tres Vidas joined the enclave that makes up Villas in Vallarta.

Margaret, Jon, Jose Ruiz de Anda, their bilingual and humorous General Manager who joined the group in 1998 after leaving the Fiesta Americana, and the entire Villas in Vallarta team, look forward to welcoming you!

Margaret purchased this villa in 2000

Why Margaret chose Puerto Vallarta

Location, Location, Location. Vida Sol at Casa Tres Vidas is located on the quiet beach of Playa Conchas Chinas a short walk to the center of Puerto Vallarta and Playa Los Muertos

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything was top notch! The steps probably helped the weight gain!! Can not rave enough about the food, better than anything out and about. The whole family was totally tickled about the whole experience. Would definitely return.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

The casa was very clean & the oceanview was amazing.

The staff was friendly & always there to assist.

If you are looking for an activity..ask roberto, lopita or Ramiro, they know everyone.

If you want to enjoy a delicious home cooked meal ask Pablo, the food was amazing.

We are definitely going to come back- dream vacation

Lovely villa with a fabulous staff!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth time staying at Casa Tres Vidas but our first time at Vida Alta. We invited two other couples to join us as it is a 3 BR/3 BA (ensuite) villa with two additional 1/2 baths (one off the LR and one by the pool). The views from this top villa are spectacular and the sunsets are absolutely gorgeous. Common areas are open-air while the bedrooms are air conditioned. Eduardo is an amazing chef. He can make just about anything! Daniel is very sweet and was the perfect host by serving us cocktails (great margaritas or mojitos) with fresh guacamole and Mexican sauce with chips followed by a white tablecloth, sit-down dinner served as though we were in a restaurant. Together they worked as a team and made our stay tremendously enjoyable. All we did was settle up with them for the food & alcohol they bought each day for our dinner & breakfast (be sure & bring plenty of cash). It was so enjoyable not to have to shop, cook, or clean up! In addition, we had Petra, our housekeeper, who made beds, cleaned our bathrooms, and supplied clean towels each day. We hardly knew she was there as she slipped in and out without getting in the way. The location of the villa is also ideal as it is a short 15-minute walk via the beach or a 5-minute taxi ride to Old Town. Treat yourself and your family or friends. You won't regret it. And, before you leave, tip the staff generously in the envelopes provided as they all work very hard to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. They are truly fabulous!!
