About John Guptill

My wife and I are from Portland, Maine. I first discovered Puerto Vallarta by accident at age 18 while on vacation in Mexico City when we decided to take an overnight bus trip adventure to the coast. Upon landing in Puerto Vallarta I instantly fell in love with it. Later I was fortunate enough to be able to return with my wife. We booked a condo in Zona Romantica, very near to Casa Tesoro Escondido (Hidden Gem), and never looked back. Year after year we returned, addicted to the beauty and amenities of PV. Finally in 2013 we decided to buy. We eventually discovered a great pre-construction opportunity at Bella Loma. We oversaw construction and meticulously applied years of personal experience renting in the area and previous professional experience in rentals, construction and real estate in Maine to create a wonderful home and superior rental experience. We currently visit our home in paradise two to three times a year. We hope you will enjoy Casa Tesoro Escondido as much as we do!

John Guptill purchased this condo in 2015

Why John Guptill chose Amapas

Casa Tesoro Escondido is centrally located to the beach, restaurants, and nightlife that Puerto Vallarta is famous for, yet all the while tucked away at the terminus of a very quiet and peaceful dead end, residential street. As we purchased pre-construction we were able to design the finishes and furnishings to the highest quality.

What makes this condo unique

Bella Loma is a smaller condo association with only 17 units. This allows for the amenities of a condo, with a bit more privacy. Typically there will only be one or two other guests on the pool deck. It has a friendly and family run feel. Built in 2015 it has modern amenities and feel but at a much greater value than other new condo developments in the area. The location is optimal, tucked away at the terminus of a dead end only 2.5 blocks to one of Vallarta's most popular beaches, Los Muertos, only one block to Olas Altas shopping and European styled cafes and bars and only minutes to restaurant row on Baslio Badillo and the boardwalk and Downtown.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Bella Loma! The open airy feeling of the setting was lovely, the view of the beach was fun, the staff was friendly and helpful, especially our house keeper, Brenda and the unit felt new and fresh. It was a bit noisy at times from the highway running behind the building which we noticed as we had the windows open instead of using the air conditioning. We also enjoyed meeting the other guests at the roof top pool. The condo had a small time community feel which we appreciated.

Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

John’s condo was the discovery of a lifetime! It looked just as pictured on VRBO...extremely clean, any and all amenities you would need, great decor. The building was safe and secure with easy access. The neighborhood was so charming, and the location is in walking distance to everything! The pool on the deck was amazing, and we were the only ones up there every day. We cannot wait to return to Casa Tesoro Escondido!

Fun to be in a neighborhood close to everything

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful view and balcony. Easy to get to shops, restaurants, and the beach (a bit of a steep walk down the hill). Loved being able to open up the sliding doors completely to have indoor/outdoor living!

Loved it...would come back.

  • 5 of 5

We were really pleased with the condo. It was modern and clean. We loved the location ... being close to the beach and “downtown” yet quiet. Rafael and Claudia were awesome. We’d definitely stay here again.
