About Dale Scott

I started going to PV back in the early nineties to escape the cold Canadian winters and I still am trying to do so. I fell in love with the people and culture of Mexico and PV in particular. It is one of the reasons I decided to invest in PV and I can honestly say that I have not one regret in doing so.

I now live in Vancouver but I am fortunate to travel the world so, but I am always anticipating my next trip to PV and staying at Casa Scooter.

Dale Scott purchased this condo in 1999

Why Dale Scott chose Amapas

The main reason I loved this property is its location and old world charm. It's unique open concept was very different from the other condos I considered. It is also a very private complex with only seven units and has an amazing building manager.

What a FANTASTIC gem of a place!!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at Casa Scooter and had a FANTASTIC stay! I've been going to PVR for years, and walked by this place a bazillion times without noticing it! There are only 7 condo units in this complex. The location was perfect: about a block and a half from the beach, and literally minutes from restaurants and bars...but far enough away from the noise at night.

Not many people were there when we were there so we basically had the pool to ourselves. I LOVED the hacienda-style condo. It had everything we needed, and was quite spacious. We were greeted by the concierge who encouraged us to reach out if we needed anything. We requested a refill of our jug of water a few times throughout our stay, and our request was granted very quickly each time. Maria (our maid) was very pleasant and helpful, leaving us extra towels and soap (without us having asked for those items).

If someone said to me "There must have been SOMETHING you weren't happy about"...I could have said: "There was trouble with the plumbing/water a couple of days"; but even at that, it wasn't an inconvenience. We just used water from our jug of water if/when needed; and as far as showering...we just jumped in the pool!! In the big picture: we were in paradise...so nothing else mattered!!!!

I would DEFINITELY stay at Casa Scooter again; and I would DEFINITELY recommend staying in this condo and/or another unit in this complex. Thanks very much Dale! :-)

Really enjoyed our stay!

  • 4 of 5

Quaint, authentic, and reasonable. The unit was perfect for two of us. Pool is an nice option when we had enough of the beach. Only downside was the water heater failure on the 2nd last day - no hot water for a couple of days - but it wasn't a major issue. The 'concierge' awaited our arrival at the condo and they were right on time when we departed. They were very helpful. I would definitely consider renting this unit again!

Owner's Response: Hi Susan. Thanks for your message. I am glad you enjoyed your stay (even with the unexpected excitement and interruption in the hot water). We will definitely make it up to you on your next stay. All the best.

Very enjoyable experience

  • 5 of 5

My friend , Tim and I, had a very enjoyable experience overall. Since we stayed in Andales next door a couple years prior we were familiar with the area and viewed the 545 property from the outside. The interior of our apartment was just the right size for 2 of us and the kitchen was outfitted with everything we needed since we cooked at home alot.

One of our only concerns was the potential security risk of someone easily climbing into our unit even if the door and outer gate is locked. We realize our Unit 3 is the only unit without covered by secure bars or windows on it's porch . It's very easy to climb over the wall (to left of our door) onto the tile roof and in a few steps, climb through the window (after moving a few potted plants).. We know this because we had to do it late one night when our inner wood door blew shut and locked us out. Anyone could easily gain access to the entire unit. We really love the open view from the porch without any obstructing bars or windows; however, security could still be achieved by replacing rusty broken locks on the glass doors between the porch and living rm / kitchen area. These could have operable locks installed with keys to secure the entire interior of the apartment (even while sleeping inside) and leave the porch area window opening as it now is, since there nothing serious to steal out there.

All 6 other units have bars or closeable windows to avoid this problem. However, #3 could be more secure if the glass doors inside were lockable.

The neighbors (both renters and owners) were all gracious and helpful to us as we socialized by the pool. When potable water bootles needed replacement and management was contacted, quick delivery resulted which impressed us. We used alot of water when cooking.

Our cleaning lady was very friendly and always anxious to please.

We look forward to returning again to this unit sometime in future. We were so glad this unit was available to book in October since we realize it was rather last minute.

The internet was fine in our unit but wish it extended as far as the pool area...as sit seemed to do for the units below us just off the pool.

Thanks, Roger Voegele and Timothy Buckley (from Chicago area)

Owner's Response: Hi Roger, Thanks for your comments regarding the unit. We have always loved the open nature of the unit but appreciate your feedback regarding accessibility. I have reached out to the property manager and have now installed gating around the windows to enhance the security of the unit. Just remember to always have you keys with you as there will no longer be the option of accessing the unit as you did before. Hope to see you back soon. Cheers Chris

Great cozy place and awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

I found the place very clean, comfortable, and had everything I needed for a relaxing and fun vacation. It had a handy little kitchen with all the fixings for making margaritas and even a romantic dinner. I loved having the covered veranda...Great place to have a leisurely breakfast, coffee or to check emails over afternoon margaritas! The pool was great as well and it was very handy to have the BBQ there. I also absolutely loved the location. It was so close to many good restaurants, shops, beachfront bars, and the Malecon walking path by the ocean. I would definitely go back and also highly recommend it to my friends and family.

Absolutely Fantastic!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience in staying here for two weeks was absolutely fantastic. The suite is well situated with easy access to the beach, within walking distance to many wonderful restaurants which were recommended by the owners. Can you believe it, they even provided us with a map so the restaurants were easy to locate. The property is well maintained and cared for and if you want to just hang out at the pool it is very private and relaxing. The manager was often on site making sure we were well cared for and answered all of our questions. He also assisted us in locating banking services that were safe to use. This property is one that we would definately visit again and would recommend it to our closest friends and family. When people have seen our pictures of the suite and pool area they have commented on the traditional mexican feel. If you are looking for relaxation, fun, and opportunities for adventure on your holiday this property places you right in the middle of it all.

Wonderful Retreat in the Centre of Romantica

  • 4 of 5

We were thoroughly delighted with the apartment. Well situated in Romantica - close to shops, markets, restaurants, and the beach. Everything within a short walking distance. The apartment is cute and cozy, absolutely delightful. Located within a small complex that is well maintained that also includes a pool and barbeque area. Great way to meet your neighbours and socialize. We did not want for anything and look forward to returning soon. Highly recommended for couples who want a charming place to spend their vacation.
