Steps from Los Muertos Beach, this deluxe villa, for years the home of an American architect and artist, and his designer wife, combines the very best of old-world Mexican charm, with every modern convenience. Original art and artifacts, collected by the owners from their travels worldwide, give the house a level of personal charm rarely seen in rental property. The octagonal living room opens on every side to either the pool, one of the four al fresco dining areas, or the large dining room which seats 8 people comfortably.With daily maid service and optional cook, the villa offers a rare opportunity to experience Mexico as it can and should be.

For the auto averse, the house is within a comfortable walk to the restaurants and shops of Old Town Vallarta, the Zona Romantica.

Our stay at Casa Ladera was awesome to say the least! The location was perfect for short walks to the beach (Blue Chairs/Mantamar). We had margaritas upon arrival followed by a fajita dinner for our first meal. This was the perfect way to start our trip with leftovers for snacks …

Casa Ladera was just as beautiful as the pictures make it look. Staff and owner were very hospitable and made our stay easy, relaxing and memorable. Great location; was only a stairway down to the beach and a stone's throw from many great restaurants. I highly recommend you ha…

Casa Ladera was an absolute gem. Centrally located, spacious, and with a real touch of old world Mexican charm. Thoughtful and responsive owners as well. Would go back in a heart beat!

Some friends and I booked Casa Ladera for my birthday vacation, and I would ABSOLUTELY book this place again. The villa is gorgeous and was a great place to relax in between activities while we were there. Things to note: - Room's doors and windows (from what I could tell) do …

Hola Hayden. Glad that you enjoyed the villa. Unfortunately, cannot do much about the Vallarta hills, and most villas are considerably higher up. You are correct about the windows. Winter guests do not use the AC at all and having "air-tight" seals is not an issue. I am, however, baffled with your breakfast bill. Service is $20 for breakfast and in no way should food costs exceed $20 - $25US, unless you are having caviar chilaquiles with lots of mimosas. I will inquire with the staff, but for certain there was a communications issue and we will refund the money. Seriously...this is not a big issue, and in no way could those have been the correct charges. Love to have your group return anytime. Saludos. Mark.

Outstanding Villa...! Just blocks to the beach. The villa is on a hill, but there are stairs (lots of them) to the beach, but that did not bother us. Once on the beach, it is an easy stroll to the pier. Mark's Villa is extremely clean and well kept. The pool and patio is where we…

Marks place was spotless, gorgeous and is set in an amazing location. Each morning we would wake up and go swimming in the most relaxing crystal clear pool overlooking the beach. Breakfast is optional and I highly suggest you take an advantage of that benefit at least a couple m…
