Casa de Piedra is a charming example of authentic Mexican architecture on the south shore of Puerto Vallarta. Surrounded by lush tropical gardens and fronting the Rio Los Horcones, it offers beautiful views of the river, the Sierra Madre Mountains, and Boca Bay. If you want to see what Mexico is all about, then come to Boca, a lively Mexican village which will allow you to experience real Mexican culture. Relax and unwind in Boca or sample everything Puerto Vallarta offers: the sea walk, shopping, art galleries, and tons of restaurants - only a 20 minute bus ride away!

Casa de Piedra was a great way to explore Mexico while relaxing. A short 3-minute walk to the Boca beach, or longer 20-minute-to-40-minute hike to other beaches. Also, Boca is a small fishing village, so you get Mexican culture while be able to relax and read in the hammock or enjoy the in the pool. The local guy (Cesar) at the beach-front restaurant can give an affordable, great massage! There's also a restaurant that affords you a view of all of Boca. Plus! Bungee jumping if that's your thing, is closeby (Bob and Sue have a negotiated price for it). Jetskis are possible, too, I hear. Anyway - what more can you hope for this place?!

Do yourself a favor and stay here. Bob and Sue have created a tropical paradise for you to experience a part of Mexico that is an authentic and enriching experience. The rooms are beautiful, spacious and comfortable. They are warm, hospitable, and full of great recommendations for your stay.

My husband and I have not stayed at Casa de Peidra... yet. However many of our family members have enjoyed the comfort of Casa de Peidra's suites, the beauty of it's gardens and the humor and hospitality of Bob and Sue. Over the years we have had the privilege of attending birthday parties, barbeques and a "Night of 100 Candles". A "Night of 100 Candles" is truly magical with 100 candles twinkling throughout the gardens under the stars. After a delicious meal cooked and served by Bob, a guitar appeared and guests sang their favorite songs into the wee hours of the night. It is with great anticipation that we look forward to more magical times next January and February at Casa de Peidra.

We stayed at the Casa de Piedra for two weeks in February and had a Fantastic time. The hosts cook a terrific breakfast to start our day off perfectly. We spent the days exploring the surrounding areas, travelling on the 8 peso bus into Puerto Vallarta, and to the Botanical Gardens. The Casa de Piedra is a relaxing home away from home, lazing by the pool or in the hammock, and the hosts will help you arrange trips to zip-lining, cruises, and taxi rides along the coasts. Also if you are a hiker ask Bob about the treks in the area. The cleanliness of the Case shows the pride everyone involved in operating the Casa has. A Wonderful time.

My fiancée and I spent 4 wonderful days at the Casa de Piedra B&B in Boca Tomatlan south of Puerto Vallarta. Bob and Sue Berndt went way beyond and took really good care of us. We felt at ease right away. They helped us plan our stay and set up our outings, introduced us to neighbors and local vendors, showed us favorite spots, shared their life and times and because of that we enjoyed the true flavor of this charming fishing village. We had so much fun, sharing lots of laughs. We looked forward to seeing them each day. I had left a document in our room after checking out that I needed to leave the country and they made sure I got it in time. But the frosting on the cake was seeing how much the two interact and care about the town. In particular, one little boy who comes to Casa de Piedra where he receives breakfast, love, and attention. They've hired a young woman to tutor him on school days which has benefited him greatly.

We recently stayed at Casa Piedra, the rooms are clean and very spacious and the hosts are very welcoming. Bob makes a great breakfast. A relaxing place to call home and great location for all activities around Boca!

My friends and I stayed here for the week of Christmas this year and it was a great experience with warm hospitality of Bob and Sue. They helped us plan our visits and activities around boca and also Puerto Vallarta. From shopping tips to eating joints to beautiful places; Bob and Sue made sure that we make best out of our vacation there. The rooms are super comfortable and very well maintained. Breakfast is excellent and Bob's blueberry pancakes were too good. I will be back here for one more vacation and hopefully this time I can defeat Bob in a game of table tennis :)

My husband and I opened the gate to Casa de Peidra Bed and Breakfast, walked along the stone covered pathway, surveyed the beautiful jungle garden and the welcoming pool, dropped our bags and knew we were home. Casa de Peidra has that effect on you and it continues throughout the visit. Susan and Robert Berndt are masters at making you feel at home. The rooms are beautifully furnished in a sense of colonial past; the breakfasts at the gaily-painted tables in the courtyard are delicious; and, you linger and chat while Bob and Sue offer ideas of where to explore and how to settle into the Mexican lifestyle. The Bed and Breakfast rests on the banks of the Horcones River as it tumbles down from the Sierra Madres--its sounds assuring a tranquil atmosphere. Bob and Sue have mentioned other areas to experience along the coast and up in the mountains when we return, which will definitely be this coming year!

GREAT trip to Boca! We visited Puerto Vallarta/Boca de Tomatlan in April and arrived to beautiful weather. We stayed a the charming and conveniently situated Casa de Piedra, from where we were able to take water taxis to many beautiful nearby beaches. We also spent a good amount of time relaxing on Boca’s very own beach. The heart of downtown Puerto Vallarta was a quick and easy 25-minute bus ride, making access to the wonderful restaurants, shops, and nightlife a breeze. Bob and Sue, the owner’s of Casa de Piedra, were wonderful hosts. They prepared delicious breakfasts daily and provided a comfortable, clean, and well-equipped apartment during our stay. We would HIGHLY recommend Casa de Piedra to anyone with even the teeniest sense of adventure seeking a comfortable and authentic Mexican refuge that is somewhat off the beaten path!

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico (PVR-Gustavo Diaz Ordaz) 15 miles
Head south from the airport; eventually, the road will become cobblestone. You will cross a bridge and, from that point, go to the 6th intersection and turn left onto B Badillo St. Go 2 blocks and turn right onto Rt 200, you will pass a Pemex gas station. It’s about 10 miles to Boca; the road follows the coastline and affords a beautiful view of Banderas Bay. Once you’ve passed Le Kliff restaurant, you will pass a sign for Boca de Tomatlan, but the actual turn is a little farther, look for a school crossing sign, and turn left when you see the man/boat sign. Welcome to Boca!
