Close enough to the village, yet far enough from the noise and daily routines for your tranquility.
“La Loma” was the original name given to this estate by the late James A Umbarger, husband of Antonia Rodriguez (your host). This breathtaking paradise was our family home upon its completion in 1970. It was the first home made from brick with electricity and spring fed running water which we still use today. Later, the name was changed to Casa Milagros by someone renting the home for a period of time. After he moved out of the estate, the family decided to open a vacation rental for those interested in a true getaway. The family decided to change the name back to its original name La Loma (The Hill) in honor of their father, welcoming travelers from around the world.
To escape from ordinary tourism you will take a water taxi from Puerto Vallarta, delivering you an hour later into the arms of Yelapa. Once you set foot on the village pier, the graciousness of La Loma welcomes you from its prominent perch to the west. A short stroll through the village will lead you to our charming 180 cobbled stairs, which zigzag through a lush bounty of tropical plants and tree life right up to our doorstep.
The house is a 10-minute walk from Yelapa's village center on a high peninsula. From La Loma you can gaze upon a vast ocean, the quaint cove and village of Yelapa. Also, on a very clear day you can see Puerto Vallarta in the distance. There is a small beach for swimming/snorkeling/fishing, unfrequented by tourist traffic located just below La Loma. The main beach and river mouth is a 20-minute walk away.
Our gracious home boasts three spacious levels. The inner areas are enclosed with screened doors & windows for comfort to take advantage of the fresh sea breeze. Original tiled floors sweep through the main wing of the house helping to keep bedrooms and communal areas clean, and the large handcrafted kitchen is a wonderful place to inspire any cook or to gather and share time. The incredible roof terraces and main floor patios, in contrast, are open to the elements for you to enjoy the natural beauty from every direction with all your senses. Sit back, take it all in and let everything go! You may find it hard to peel yourself off your rocking chair.
The accommodations at this home are ideal for singles, couples or groups. From this location you can easily explore the many delights of Yelapa or just laying back to unwind and retreat into the peaceful abundance of nature all around.
