The best of Boca!

5 on January 08, 2015

This was our fourth time in the Puerta Vallerta area, but our first time in Boca, and we fell in love! The rooms at Casa were charming, comfortable and spacious. The beds were great! We had a wonderful view of the mountains from our windows and the comfort of AC in the evening. Kitchen had enough pots, pans, etc for is to cook a full meal. Pool was chilly but convent and frequently used by our 3 yr old daughter. Breakfast had many options: fresh fruit, yogurt, toast, something sweet, and then an egg entree- poached, scrambled, sausages, bacon, omlettes etc. The outdoor space is beautiful and has many comfortable chairs. Nice quiet setting to read a book or sit and enjoy the tropical garden. Every day Bob and Sue made sure we were set for the day. From fresh towels, to beach toys, the perfect spot at the beach, or an ice cold beer. They went above and beyond to help us navigate the new area. Vacationing with a toddler is not always easy, but they were so welcoming of her and spent time making the trip special for her too! She still talks about Bob and Sue and misses them! They have pack and play, toys, and stroller. Cold in Chicago and we are missing Casa de Piedra!!!


Adventure combined with comfort and beauty

5 on January 05, 2015

We did not know what to expect for our stay at Casa de Piedra and had not been in Boca de Tomatlin before, and on our first day—in the rain—when we crossed the cement bridge and were welcomed by Bob and Sue--- knew it was all going to be just fine. Our apartments were charming—carefully decorated to be functional and yet with an authentic Mexican flair. The beds are wonderful—complete with lovely linens and a pillow top mattress a combination so welcoming after a busy day of fun—and adventure. Bob and Sue are a perfect hosting couple—they each seem to know instinctively what is needed without even being asked! Eating breakfast outside on colorful tables was a wonderful way to begin a day—but then Bob and Sue made sure that we were taken care of—fluffy beach towels—sand toys—introductions to local restaurateurs—or detailed information regarding transportation. It was clear that it was important not only that we had a great place to stay and relax, but also that any of our interests or desires would also be supported or met. We were only left with the tough decisions such as where to eat or what beach to relax in during the day. The area is rustic and far from the glittering mega resorts in Puerto Vallarta, however-the natural beauty of the cove, the lush greenery of the jungle, and the majesty of the mountains more than make up for any commercial attractions. And, we still were just a short cab ride or bus trip away if we needed a shopping fix or wanted some nightlife.


Discovering Mexico while Relaxing

5 on July 06, 2014

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?!


Warmth That Will Not Quit!

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.


Visitors to Casa de Piedra

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.


Terrific Stay

5 on March 03, 2014

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.


Great quiet location and hosts

Lovely spot next to a river and near a good swimming beach. Lots of variety and choices for breakfasts. An oasis to come home to after trips around the area the hosts help you find Booked my return already


Wonderful new memories

4.8 on January 20, 2014

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. 


great stay in boca

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!


Above and beyond expectations

5 on January 15, 2014

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 :)
