We had a terrific stay at Casa Terra and the house is perfect for three couples. During our two weeks in Mexico we stayed in three different properties in the Puerto Vallarta area but this was by far the most retreat-like of all our accommodation. Casa Terra has all the amenities and it is definitely a retreat!
We enjoyed the patio and pool, loved walking the beach, sunrises and blue ocean, the weather and the comfortable beds! We all enjoyed La Cruz and we discovered some very good beaches when we went on a boating trip and even saw whales, and RELAXED.
Our men outdid themselves by preparing evening meals of fresh fish and shrimp we purchased every day from the La Cruz Marina.
John and Gloria were both friendly and helpful. On Valentine's Day the chocolate cake, orange cake and flan were yummy!
Thank you for providing us with this lovely home and for the great place to stay.

Thank you for allowing us to use your home for such a glorious vacation! Casa Terra is beautiful and we loved the quiet surroundings, the walks into La Cruz, the new Marina, the bus trips to Puerto Vallarta, Bucerias and Punta de Mita!
We had some wonderful dinners at John and Carol's restaurant, "Arriba" upstairs at the La Cruz Inn and it was delightful to have Gloria as our waitress! We were pleased with John's recommendations for other excellent restaurants.
We feel truly rested and did appreciate the fabulous view of the boats in front of the house, palm trees and the beach and the diving pelicans. We watched a fabulous sunset over La Cruz viewed from El Brujo restaurant in Bucerias and were able to see "our boats" on the horizon.
The accommodation at Casa Terra has everything including Canuck Hockey, Australian Tennis, Canadian Curling and British Soccer. What more could you ask for?

Our vacation at Casa Terra could not have been better - the weather was just fabulous, 80 degrees during the day and cooled down to 60's at night. We never had to turn on the air conditioning. We were pleasantly surprised at how well stocked the Casa is, including spices, paper products, shampoo, cleaning supplies and laundry stuff. John and Carol were great and Gloria is a breath of fresh air. Jesus and Lettie cooked a wonderful birthday dinner at the Casa and we even went out on his boat for a half day.
The yard and pool are beautifully maintained and we spent many an afternoon floating in the pool. New Years Eve was the highlight. At midnight we stepped out on the beach and watched 8 miles of fireworks displays down the bay - a life memory! This was truly a special vacation for us and we thank you so much for making it so easy for us.
Thanks so much for everything. It has been a joy working with you and I hope to book with you again. Happy New Year!

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our vacation at Casa Terra! We were so comfortable there. It was so nice to be in a house and have our own private pool. We all loved the pool, but Cole and Mason especially.
We went fishing twice with Jesus. What a wonderful guy! He took us fishing/snorkelling the first trip. We ended up catching a rooster fish and Lettie cooked us a fabulous dinner of fish in cream. It as so good! The second trip was just me and my husband. We went Tuna fishing but no fish that time, but it was still a wonderful time.
Jesus also set us up with a regular taxi guy that we used for all of our trips. And on our last night in Mexico, he invited us to his house for dinner along with other friends he invited. He became like family to us and he even stopped by the house the morning of the day we were leaving to say goodbye again.
Mexico is great and it was my first time here. We loved the Bucerias market with so much to see and do.
Thanks again for sharing this beautiful house with us. We will definitely be planning another vacation to Casa Terra!

We had a fabulous vacation! The house was beautiful and we felt right at home. It was the first time we had done a holiday without being at a large resort and this was far superior. We have been to Puerto Vallarta many times before--this was by far the best trip.
Thanks for your assistance.

We had a great experience at Casa Terra and found that the the property, Michelle and the services she provided, and the entire week exceeded our expectations.
Thanks to all who are involved in providing quality vacation experiences for work-weary travelers.

This was probably our all time favorite vacation. We have been here a week and we hate to leave. The house was great--even better than we had hoped for. Michelle was a huge asset. The trip would not have been near as smooth and enjoyable without her help.
Hope to come back again.
Jeff, Susanne & Luke
This is the second time we have had the opportunity to stay in "Paradise" at Casa Terra. First time for 5 nights--not long enough--second time for 7 nights. Still not long enough! Maybe third time is the charm!!
Thanks to Michelle for everything. WE SHALL RETURN.

The house and the view were absolutely beautiful! Thank you so much for allowing us to use your house for our relaxing vacation. Our time here was relaxing and calm, but it went by so fast! It's so rare and wonderful to hear the ocean waves crashing on the shore from your bedroom!
