Photos and Description of the Centro vacation villa rental

3 bedrooms for rent in gorgeous property, operates as a B&K (sorry no breaky)

Casa Malia offers 3 independent bedrooms for rent, all with king size mattresses and A/C (optional at 15 USD per day). All common areas to share among guests, pets and owner.

The prices listed on this listing are per bedroom per night.

Aside from that I also have a 2 bedroom house with dipping pool available for rent as a whole (not available before 5th of May 2017). Contact me if you want pictures (prices during high season : 3'000 USD per month for 3 to 4 months rental, 2'500 USD per month for 5 to 6 months rental. For yearly rental or low season please contact me)

Minimum stay is 3 months for the two bedroom house

Here is a description of Casa Malia (in which I rent 3 independent bedrooms):

As you enter the main level you will find a designer kitchen, largely scaled great room and a charming interior courtyard with a fountain and a 1/2 bath. The next level, or the Patio level is perhaps the focal point of the Casa with a 1,400 sq. feet (130 m2) patio including a large covered area with seating for 8, a dipping pool with both a swim up bar and an outside bar, a water sunning ledge, a second fully equipped kitchen with a BBQ and 2 bedrooms. This kitchen is for the sole use of the guests.

The 2 en-suite bedrooms on this level are the Saints’ Room and the Garden Room. The top level of the house has another two en-suite bedrooms, the Jaguar Room and Malia Room (presently occupied by owner and pets).

Here is a description of the 2 bedroom house up for rent as a whole:

1st floor: reading room + one en-suite bedroom with 2 single beds (they can be joined up to form a king size bed)

2nd floor: TV room, 1/2 bathroom, well-furnished kitchen with a dishwasher, terrace with dipping pool and table for 6

3rd floor: master bedroom with king size bed + private terrace

House has internet

No cable TV though. TV is used to watch movies that I have on a hard drive, also has chrome cast enabling you to visualize what you have on your pc (like Netflix)

No A/C either, but fans everywhere which are amply sufficient during the autumn/winter seasons.

The house is attached to mine, so if you need anything you know where to find me

Utilities and maid service not included

If you need a garage I can also supply that at no extra cost

The kitchen has everything you might need. There is also a BBQ on terrace

Casa Malia was completely remodeled in 2006 and is located in Gringo Gulch (made famous by Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton). Facing south, the Casa has 180 degree views of the Sierra Madre Mountains, the Cuale River, Banderas Bay and much of the town.

It is located in the hill above the Cuale Island, in an area called Gringo Gulch, 10 minutes’ walk away from the Romantic Zone and from the beach. People say the area with its cobbled streets and mix of big beautiful houses belonging to foreigners and small simple Mexican houses, remind them of villages in Europe. Due to its partly Mexican neighborhood, you will sometimes hear singing, roosters, dogs barking, and of course, the church’s bells on Sundays and other Catholic holy days.

This neighborhood has kept some of its authenticity, everyone knows each other and greets one another.
