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.

Penthouse Casa for rent in downtown (el centro) Puerto Vallarta - Ocean Views!
average rating of 4.8 based on 15 reviews


  • 5 of 5

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.

Open air living, spotless, beautifully appointed

  • 4 of 5

Roger's home away from home felt just that. It was cozy even though a great majority of the living took place on the patios. We loved being immersed in local living. The beach is a mere 4 block walk, the Malacon beach walk, very close as well, with lots of sights and great people watching was a daily activity. And the local restaurants were a real treat.

The Proprietor, Roger, is a very kind, accommodating person who gave us total privacy.

Being Rural Dwellers, the city noise was hard for us but would not keep us from staying at Chile Casa again. In being honest with our rating of 4 stars, the city noise was our only (small) issue. Other than that the property and Roger are absolutely 5 stars.

Beautiful home with amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Chile for a month and didn't want to leave.

If you enjoy the real flavour of Mexico, this is the place for you.

We would agree with the other guests...the pictures don't do justice to this lovely home.

We loved the open and airy floor plan and colourful Mexican decor. The views from every floor are amazing.

It is in a wonderful and safe neighbourhood and just five blocks from the beach and Malecon.

Roger (our host ) is charming and always available if you needed anything.

Bus stops and a large grocery store were just a few blocks away.

We loved it and would highly recommend it.

Beautiful Casa

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from the most fabulous trip. I knew nothing about Puerto Vallarta before this trip, and someone blindly chose this place based on reviews. I am SO happy with my choice. The casa itself is beautiful, and certainly a way to spend a few days. I was looking for something less touristy, and this fit perfect. The location is just a couple blocks away from the North end of the Malecon, and a couple blocks from the beach. The Malecon was fun to stroll up and down, but the for me the best parts were exploring the cobblestone streets and neighborhood restaurants that were located a couple blocks off the Malecon. We also particularly liked the "Zona Romantica" (Romantic Zone). When I read about that zone I thought it would be for honeymooners, or young couples, but what I found is that is where all the cool hip restaurants and bars are located, as well as great little shops. Again, this Casa has all these amazing places within a short walk. The beach that is just a couple blocks away is a lot less crowded than other beaches in PV. If you like crowds, tourists, and chain restaurants this probably isn't the place for you, but if you seek a real taste of being in a beach community and seek about the very best restaurants (at a fraction of the cost compared to US), then this location is a must. The host (Roger) was very nice, and gave us a great tour of the Casa, and pretty much kept to himself during the rest of our stay, but was there in the event that we needed him. Was happy to spend a few days there, and will most certainly be back.
