About Roger McGee

Grew up in Bay Area in California. Primary career was a hairstylist. Have been involved in real estate throughout my life and enjoy building/renovating properties. Always dreamed of retiring in a beautiful ocean tourist area like Puerto Vallarta and enjoy providing affordable lodging with tremendous views of the beautiful city.

Roger McGee purchased this house in 2011

Why Roger McGee chose Puerto Vallarta

I have been coming to Puerto Vallarta for 19 years, so thought I would retire here. Good choice! :)

What makes this house unique

My partner of 12 years and I loved Casa Chile the minute we saw it. It is in traditional Mexican style in a friendly neighbor and we don't need a car because everything we need is in walking, bus or taxi distance. It's very safe here, lots of tourists, mostly American, Mexican and Canadian whom with we have made many lasting friendships.

Enjoyed everything about our 21 day stay...exceeded expectations

The casa was very clean, well appointed, excellent location to beach, fabulous Malacon, numerous restaurants and shops, all within short walking distances. The local buses were convenient for travelling further if you want to explore. The owner was very friendly and helpful and answered our many queries for getting about. We felt very safe walking around during the day and after dark. We highly recommend this casa.

This property is amazing and beautiful.

You approach from old cobble streets through authentic Mexico only minutes to the beach and all ammenities. You don't expect the place to be as beautiful as it is inside. Roger made the trip easy for us with tips to help out. I cannot say enough about this place it was fantastic. We loved the atmosphere and the view was great too.

My wife and I and our two teenage boys stayed a week at Casa Chile and had a fantastic experience. The open air patio and 2 bedrooms were absolutely perfect for us. Roger was a very gracious and attentive host. There is a very nice beach straight down the hill, just 3 1/2 blocks and many restaurants and conveniences within a short walk including the large supermarket. We will absolutely be back and have already been recommending Casa Chile to our friends and family. Thank you Roger!

A wonderful spot in downtown Vallarta

  • 5 of 5

Can't wait to go back! If you want to stay in a neighborhood close to the beach and not a hotel, this is a great place. Loved the views, the accommodations, and the host, Roger. It is completely open-air, unless you want to close up the bedroom, which we never did.

The views from the Penthouse Casa were simply breathtaking. Nice area. Very safe. Very gay friendly. This was my home away from home. I felt very welcomed from the moment I stepped out of the taxi and was greeted by my host, Roger. Puerto Vallatra is a beautiful town. There was plenty to do and every thing was in walking distance. I enjoyed many evenings walking to nice restaurants and visiting the Malecon (a must do). The beach was only three blocks from the casa. Every one I met was so helpful and very friendly. Looking forward to my return visit to both Puerto Vallatra and the Penthouse Casa.

Absolute paradise in downtown Puerto Vallarta overlooking the ocean

  • 5 of 5

The penthouse casa was the highlight of our trip to Puerto Vallarta. It is literally an "open air" floor plan in traditional Mexican style, very clean and well maintained, and stocked with all the amenities we needed. We found ourselves spending our time just relaxing on the patios, enjoying the breeze, taking in the beautiful ocean view and watching the locals go about their business. Location is great, a short walk to restaurants, the beach and the Malecon. Buses and taxis can be found one block from the casa. Roger is very accommodating and friendly, and his recommendations were spot on for us. We have rented several accommodations through VRBO, and can honestly say this particular property is our favorite. We will definitely request to stay here again when we return to Puerto Vallarta. Thank you Roger for your hospitality and sharing your casa with us.
