My daughter and I stayed at Heidi's Hacienda in Colonial Aqua Azul in the heart of Puerto Vallarta.
Here we enjoyed being near the Mexican people, listening to their music, watching their children play outside, and eating authentic food from nearby locations. Heidi's home is truly an authentic Mexican style home - and well kept, clean and comfortable. The shower was hot, and everything was perfect in each well decorated room. We felt safe and at home.
Having a host that is so familiar with the surroundings was extremely beneficial! Heidi is a delightful host with many suggestions and ideas for visiters not knowing the area. She saved us literally hours of time, which would have otherwise been spent searching, trying to find appropriate travel methods, places to go, and how to get there, even where to eat! We had the best dinner possible on Heidi's recommendations, and excursions to places we never would have found without her.
I would highly recommend Heidi's Hacienda for those wishing to experience the "real" Mexico, away from the tourist areas and high cost hotels.
Hugs, Sylvia and marissa!
I am a middle-aged Canadian, I have been a guest at Heidi's villa in Puerto Vallarta, over the years . As a single traveler, Heidi's Hacienda is always an instant hit. For what I'm getting, it'd cost 5 star prices anywhere else.
Thank you so much Heidi for your hospitality in your beautiful home in Puerto Vallarta and for making me feel so welcome. I loved the comfortable feel of your space as well as your peaceful, kind soul. I loved the convenient location, being able to walk to and from the beach every day. The local grocery shops whereby I could buy dinner fresh daily, take it back to your home & cook a great meal in a relaxed environment. It was a pleasure staying in your villa during my week in PV.

Staying at Heidi's Hacienda was a wonderful experience. Our host Heidi is so friendly and knowledgeable. Her villa is located in Old Puerto Vallarta and is within walking distance to beaches, cafes and shops. Our room was located off a beautiful garden with lots of plants and was so peaceful & quiet. We had access to the kitchen to cook meals if we wanted to. Heidi was able to offer advice on good restaurants & sites. The villa was very clean & only a $10 cab fare to the airport.
