Casa De Los Arcos – Puerto Vallarta Gay Friendly Resort

Casa De Los Arcos - Puerto Vallarta Gay Friendly Resort

Casa de los Arcos has been operating as a Guest villa since the late 80’s and I have been the owner since 1994. We have been rated # 1 on Trip Advisor for Specialty Lodging for the last 4 years.

It is a magical place that allows our guest to get away from the stresses of everyday life and luxuriate in the sounds of the rustling trees, and soft breezes. Our views are nothing short of spectacular, whether you are sitting on your private terrace, or on one of the terraces in our Botanical gardens. Relax to the sounds of the waterfalls in the gardens or take a short stroll to the beach or downtown.

Casa de los Arcos has all the charm of old Mexico, and is awash with color and sunshine.

You can either enjoy this villa with a large group of your friends or family by renting the whole property, or take just rent one of the four “casas”.

The design of the villa allows for absolute privacy when you are in your suite, but there are large entertaining areas if you have rented the whole villa.

Each suite has its own character. The Museo is our newest addition. It is about 700 square feet of living space, with a master bedroom, with a full galley style kitchen, and spacious living and dining room. A few stairs up is the pool terrace.

The Casa Grande is on this level. It is a large 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom suite, with living room, dining room, and kitchen. Each bedroom opens onto a terrace. The main terrace spans the width of the villa, and has a large palapa covered bar. It is a great entertaining space that can hold up to 40 people

One level above the pool is the Palapa. This one bedroom suite is pure tropics, very romantic, and has fantastic views from everywhere. It boasts a palapa roof over the two living areas, a dining table that will seat 10, a large private sun terrace and a master suite that allows great views out to the ocean.

Our Casita is also a one bedroom suite, open concept living and dining area, private terrace and large master bedroom. It’s views are the best in the house. All suites are decorated in wonderful bright fabrics and hand painted Mexican tiles.

Our most recent addition is our Botanical Garden. It is lush with native plants, has two spacious terraces with unobstructed views, and two waterfalls.

Our staff are here Monday through Saturday, and our cook is available for an extra charge. We have wifi throughout the villa and gardens, cable tv, and,telephone.

Your hosts are on the property to insure that your time at Casa de los Arcos is all you want it to be. We will set up your airport transfers, and take you to the local store to stock your kitchen upon your arrival.

After that, enjoy our stunning sunset as you sip one of our famous margaritas.

Casitas LazDivaz – Costa Rica Lesbian Bed & Breakfast

Casitas LazDivaz - Costa Rica Lesbian Bed & Breakfast

Playa Samara is a four-kilometer stretch of gorgeous beach on the Pacific coast of the Nicoya Peninsula, a National Geographic-designated Blue Zone, one of five areas in the world where people live longer, healthier, and happier lives than anywhere else on this planet.

Welcome to Casitas LazDivaz B&C, and experience the Rainbow Zone!

Enter our adults-only oasis through our whimsical driftwood gate, under the billowing rainbow flag, and find yourself in a serene tropical garden, where we celebrate diversity, welcoming guests from all walks of life.

Shaded by a full canopy of mature, indigenous trees teeming with wildlife, Casitas LazDivaz is a secluded compound of three cozy, private stand-alone cabins, outside of busy Samara Center, yet still within a five-minute beach stroll to the restaurants, shops, and entertainment in the lively Costa Rican village. Upon arrival, we will give you our annotated map to lead you to the activities and restaurants that we recommend

LazDivaz was conceived, designed, and lovingly built at the turn of the century by a couple of lesbian dreamers–an architect from Munich and a graphic designer from Boston. The European-standard construction is complemented by distinct, hand-crafted furniture and fixtures throughout.

Your comfort is our priority: the queen-size bed has an orthopedic mattress and high-count cotton sheets; ceiling fans supplement the ventilation in the breezy, open-air design; and the strong shower rains unlimited hot water.

Two casitas, Marlene Dietrich and Farinelli, each have a small refrigerator. WiFi is available throughout the premises.

Casita Tina Turner has a kitchen, with fridge, stove, microwave, toaster oven, blender, and all necessary utensils. Tina is larger than the other two, and is the most private, with an elevated porch that overlooks the garden.

Each morning we serve rich, steamy, high-altitude Costa Rican coffee, and offer fresh squeezed orange juice to get your day off to a healthful start.

On the beach just beyond the gate, under the shade of coconut palms, we hang colorful hammocks, an enticement to while away the hours reading, floating in a reverie, sharing a double hammock with your love, or just chilling to the music of the waves as they lull away your cares. Some call that state of static bliss “nirvana.” We call it “Samara Syndrome.”

Protected from strong currents by a barrier reef, Playa Samara is one of the safest swimming beaches in Costa Rica. The gentle waves are perfect for beginning surfers, the wide strand excellent for running, and the hills above prime hiking spots. The protected wildlife refuge on Isla Chora, just a few hundred meters from shore, is accessible by ocean kayak.

At twilight, we gather on our rustic driftwood bench, sipping libations and communing with the dazzling spectacle of light and color that unfolds as sunset fades into night, after which we sometimes light a fire pit to extend both our time on the beach, and the sense of community that often evolves among our guests.
