“Imagine yourself in a world apart, an oasis of color and fragrance, trickling fountains, and candles that light your way through the courtyard. Imagine being awakened by cathedral bells and tropical birdsong. Your view upon first light is incomparable: the Pacific Ocean, framed by multicolored azaleas. This and more is Casa de la Torre.” – Dr. Terri Dobbs, University of Wisconsin - Madison

Casa de la Torre is located in El Centro, home to some of Vallarta's finest restaurants and art galleries. It is a signature property and is referenced in several guide books. The house is built of stone on many levels and has an open air Mediterranean feel with spectacular views and a secluded garden and pool area. Most everything is within walking distance.

And a complimentary full breakfast is provided daily. Other arrangements can be made for lunches and dinners (at an additional cost), as our cook is very versatile.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mary Serphos posted on Casa de la Torre's timeline

"Casa De La Torre is an Exquisite Oasis with immaculate attention to detail. A truly luxurious, sacred, and nourishing place to call home while in Puerto Vallarta. I felt like a queen as I stood out on the tower balcony to watch the sunset over the Bay of Banderas then took a dip in the refreshing pool, and came back after a wonderful dinner only to find myself nestled among a most comfortable bed with high thread count sheets. I didn’t want to leave!"

The villa is even more beautiful than the photos show. And the staff are so helpful and friendly that they feel like family. We thoroughly enjoyed our week and can't wait to go back.

Absolutely amazing accommodations!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The best accommodations my family and I have ever experienced. The castle is incredible. Monse (care taker) Martin (ground keeper) Marta (Chef) and Ariel (property manager) were all very kind and helpful to us. The experience we had would have cost $5000-10,000 a night in the US. Do yourself a favor and experience this amazing home for yourself. We will be back. Thanks for everything Monse!!

Best of the best: elegant, location, clean, servic

  • 5 of 5

Why stay anywhere else? We had the good fortune to stay there recently and what a stay it was! The photos, while great, understate what an elegant throwback to another time when fine presentation, exceptional work/detail, style, discrete but thorough service, and convenience mattered. This place has it all & is centrally located so beaches, culture, shops, music, are all within a few minutes walk. All conveniences in the kitchen, the pool is terrific, the views amazing. Don't hesitate!

Our fairytale castle for our honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better honeymoon at Casa de la Torre! The house itself is right out of a movie. The house is absolutely breathtaking. All of the flowers, plants, and shrubs are meticulously cared for by Martin and Monse is the sweetest, kindest, house-keeper! We hope to stay at Casa de la Torre again in the future!

Truly unique luxury home, with amazing attention to detail.

  • 5 of 5

I went to Casa de la Torres for a "girls getaway, and birthday celebration"-- and wow, what an incredible home in the heart of el centro !! You won't believe the attention to detail-- and workmanship that was put into this home to create something truly unique and special.

If you ever get lost on PV, you just have to look up for the castles tower, to know where your home away from home is. I could have spent hours staring at the various intricate ceilings and wood and stone work in every room. And although I have been renting luxury homes for vacations for many years-- I've never seen a home kept as immaculate as this one! The housekeeper offered fresh sheets and towels daily, as well as amazing Lattes from their state of the art expresso machine, and the landscaper was on hand daily, watering the hundreds of plants and it looks like he re paints the spiral staircase going to the tower frequently, as the black shiny paint is perfect.

This is NOT your typical rental home. It's a special oasis, with a multitude of awesome sitting areas, with views and breezes, a charming pool--- a super setting to spend time with family and friends in a comfortable private luxury home --- it is an opportunity not to be missed-- you won't forget it!

Will NEVER Stay at a Hotel Again!

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from third and most incredible stay at our beloved Casa de la Torre. Once again, our time there was so wonderful, that our departure felt like we were leaving our home in Puerto Vallarta. The house is beautiful and the location is perfection whether you want to walk to nearby restaurants and shops or to walk a few steps to the corner to hail a taxi. While the Casa is not on the beach, the beautiful ocean views and private pool more than make up for it. And while the Casa is beautifully and comfortably furnished with all the amenities, I would have to say that undoubtedly, the staff is the biggest selling point. The housekeeper, Montzie, and gardener/handyman, Martine, are like family, and make our days there effortless. The recent addition of a full breakfast every morning was the icing on the vacation cake! Delicious! We can't wait to return for our next visit. VIVA CASA DE LA TORRE!
