About Keith Sklar

My family and I once vacationed at Casa Marilu III as guests. We loved it so much we decided to purchase the villa. What we love most about the villa is how it is wedged into the coast of the Pacific with a sandy beach on one side and a tropical mountain jungle on the other. Our family likes to take advantage of all the hiking and water sports available in the Mismaloya area. We welcome you to the villa and hope you have a great vacation. It is our intent that every family that stays at Casa Marilu has as great as time as we do!

Keith Sklar purchased this villa in 2005

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had an amazing time. Enjoyed every moment and are already planning our next visit. Cesar was incredible, and we enjoyed Armando's cooking each day. Our maid, Susy was so wonderful. We felt the entire staff were all terrific. The villa is beautiful and we look forward to returning again soon.

Our chef will prepare 2 meals a day for you. Just let him know what you will like…you can easily change the menu at your will. Our houseman will ask you for food and drink money to go shopping and will return all the receipts the same day for your review. We ask that you please settle your food bill daily with him.

Pampered by Staff and Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed are stay at Casa Marilu. All the staff members were attentive, friendly and will to go the extra mile to accommodate our requests and food allergies. Each one of them made us feel special and they truly enjoy their work. Our drink glasses were never empty and we were never hungry!

The staff recommended and arranged several outings that turned out to be very fun. The location feels secluded but is close to Mismaloya and a short ride to Puerto Vallarta. The views from everywhere in the house are unbeatable! I would stay there again.

An amazing girls trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week at Casa Marilu! The house is gorgeous and the view of the bay and Los Arcos is simply beautiful. 7 of us slept comfortably - 5 ladies celebrating 50th birthdays plus my stepdaughter and her friend. Everyone was happily spoiled by our experience here. Cesar, the house man, was wonderful and helped us make all arrangements for meals and activities including a boat trip to Yelapa, snorkeling, and taxis into Puerto Vallarta. Armando, the Chef, cooked restaurant quality meals and accommodated several people with food allergies - corn, dairy and gluten. Suzy kept the house spotless. We felt completely safe with the security guard outside at night. We enjoyed yoga in morning either on the deck or the private beach below, taking a dip in the pool after soaking in some sun and walking to the quiet little town of Mismaloya. We ventured into Puerto Vallarta two of the days of our trip. Zona Romantica for shopping and grabbing a bite to eat at a small bistro is a must. We zip-lined at Los Veranos and kayaked around Los Arcos. It was truly a perfect vacation. I would definitely recommend it for a girls trip, but it also would be great for a family with teenagers. There is WiFi at the house and there are so many things to do. The best part of the trip was the sound of the waves all of the time and looking out into the bay and seeing the whales right off of the deck. Breathtaking!

Car: not necessary

Some favorite activities: - all very close to Casa Marilu III are:

1. The “villa” beach, a 3 minute walk – for good swimmers

2. Mismaloya beach, a mile away – a great walk – lounge, snorkel, parachute ride, kayaks, food on the beach

3. Walk to the top of the hill behind the villa – head towards Mismaloya beach (south), turn left at the entrance to the village, in front on the hotel la Jolla de Mismaloya.

4. Walk to the quaint village at Mismaloya, or take a short 15 minute drive to the two riverside cascade-pools and famous restaurants (“Chino’s” and “Eden”)

5. Walk to the “Night of the Iguana” movie sets, on the south side of Mismaloya Bay. There’s a nice restaurant there too.

6. Horseback up the river, into the jungle at Mismaloya.

7. Dinner/lunch at the la Jolla de Mismaloya luxury hotel on the beach, or at the old movie set, or at “Tony’s” in the village of Mismaloya. Also try the restaurant at the Hotel Casa Iguana at the entrance to the village of Mismaloya.

8. Rent a small “panga” boat to visit Los Arcos, those huge rocks in front of the villa, or head to nearby Quimixto, Majahuitas or Las Animas beaches. These are all great beaches, with food and very good snorkeling as well. The “pangas” are 15-ft open fishing outboards and can be easily hired for an hour or the day at Mismaloya beach.

9. Vallarta has 7 great 18 hole golf courses, lots of tennis, whale watching, fishing, hiking for height active.

10. There are great running and hiking trails into the mountains. These mountains can reach an elevation of about 1800 feet.
