Very friendly host. Beautiful place, clean open, colorful. Great views from the roof. Great place to come home to after a fun night out. Using only the ceiling fan, kept cool all night, never needed the AC. Maid service a plus, rare for AirBnb, comes every other day. She did miss on day though. Felt comfortable and at home. Not very far from most places we wanted to go, 20min walk max or $3/4 taxi drive away. Would def recommend. I totally fell in love with Puerto Vallarta!

Our experience in Robert's villa was excellent! The location, the settings in-house and overall, we really enjoyed our stay during this period of time in PV. Within the house, we had everything provided (bed sheets, towels, all house appliances, etc) and we had a little issue with the hot water, but Robert immediately sent someone to fix it, we were very pleased with his fast and prompt help and also his advices of places to go out and discover in PV were very helpful! We really recommend to stay in Robert's villa. If you're staying in the upper bedroom, then expect climbing up and down stairs, but that keeps you fit :) Also, the view from the upper terrace gives you very nice sunset and sunrise views, it's really calm and it's just very nice to hang out up there. We didn't rent a car as the villa is well located and taxis are quite cheap if you want to reach the Marina, Mall or any other place outside of the old town. But, within this area, you have everything from shopping, restaurants, bars, beach area, etc. Thanks for our pleasant stay, Robert!
