John Monk's Villa in Puerto Vallarta
The house is located in a middle class subdivision called Aramara which is a half mile inland from the "Krystal" disco and the marina Buenaventura hotel on the road to Pitillal. I usually walk to the nearest beach called the "Playa d'Oro". The primary school is close by. The Aramara market and shopping center is a 10 minute walk. Downtown is 15 mins on the very frequent bus. Playa Los Muertos on the south side of town is 20 minutes. Pitillal, a small traditional market town is 1 mile to the north east. The airport is less than 20 minutes away by van or taxi.
The house is about 1200 sq ft and is 2

She does personal laundry for $1 US per wash, and personal cooking by arrangement with her.

PLANNING A STAY
What my guests like to do who are in the planning stage of their vacation is to get together with me, usually at my residence in Madison Park (Seattle, WA, USA), to look at more pictures and ask questions.
A significant factor is the airline fare and reservation. From Seattle, Alaskan Airlines has a virtual monopoly. Tickets purchased 3 weeks or more ahead of time are substantially less expensive.
