Property Details


Dolce Vita One (DV1)

Welcome to Dolce Vita, our private, two home vacation rental in charming and quaint Bucerias, Mexico.  Dolce Vita and its superb location on a cobblestone street, a half block from the beach, is just superb and our guests will think so as well!.
Dolce Vita is located on Calle Lazaro Cardenas, a half block from the sandy beach and the Bay of Banderas in the “Golden Zone” of Bucerias. Dolce Vita is made up of two homes, one with two bedrooms (Dolce Vita II- occupancy of four) and the casita, with one bedroom (Dolce Vita I- occupancy of two). The casita is located across the pool from the casa. Guests can rent either home separately, or they can be rented together renting both is a perfect arrangement for a family group or three couples. The entire area is enclosed by a stone wall for security and privacy.
One Bedroom House
Across the pool is Dolce Vita I, the casita, which is perfect for two people. It is one story and handicapped accessible. It features a full kitchen and dining area with ocean views. The bedroom has a large closet and a queen bed. Both the living room area (with cable TV and DVD player) and the bedroom open up through screened French doors directly onto the pool patio. In addition to the seating areas around the pool, the casita has a separate palapa deck behind the house with ocean views and sounds of the surf.
The two homes share a crystal clear, cobalt blue tiled pool with pool lights for evening swims. The pool area is surrounded by lush, green plants creating a tropical feel. There are recliners around the pool for relaxation, as well as umbrella tables and chairs for outside dining. Enjoy a meal of fresh veggies and locally caught fish barbequed on the Weber grill.
Consider coming to Bucerias and staying in our homes during the summer months of May through October. Then the place is slow. The restaurants and shops are less crowded and the beaches are empty. It is also a lot less expensive –money goes further! Enjoy a Mexican summer vacation!
Wonderful Mexican Caretaker
We consider ourselves very lucky to have a wonderful Mexican man, Jorge, as our property caretaker. He will personally greet you, and he will help you settle in. He can guide you in your restaurant selection and give you tour suggestions, or help you find medical care in the unfortunate case you need it. He can arrange for transportation or even find a chef to come to Dolce Vita and cook up a feast for you. He is easily and readily available as he lives and works right next door.
Welcome To Dolce Vita
Come and stay with us at Dolce Vita and enjoy the ambiance of Bucerias, with its cobblestone streets and sandy beach, delicious food, friendly folks, gorgeous flowers and marvelous culture. You will be glad to be here!.

Returned to Dolce Vita
Had another wonderful stay at Dolce Vita!!!

We were fortunate enough to have both the Casita and the house to accommodate our family members and friends that joined us on different dates.
What a beautiful community to visit, Lots of things to do and lots of wonderful food to cook.

Also, lots of great restaurants. As this was our second time here it was great that lots of people recognized us and with a longer stay we felt very much a part of Bucerias.
The music at the bar beside the house was much quieter this time, They are now having a solo guitar player play great dinner music softly and I'm sure the speakers have been re-directed so as not to be sending all the sound to the house.

Again, we enjoyed the music every evening that we were home except for one when some local musicians wandered through the restaurant, but then you get them everywhere in Mexico!!!
The manager was very accommodating and as usual, the houses are kept very clean. All our needs and more were met. We will return!!!
Been there twice going back a third.
I have to agree with the previous comments, make the Casas Dolce Vita your gateway to Bucerias.
The pool is kept sparkling. The landscaping neatly groomed and housekeeping by Esmeralda is immaculate.
You will never have to worry about your personal property. Laying by the pool during the day and reading a book is totally relaxing.

The sound of the surf breaking and singing of the birds tells you, you have arrived in paradise. In the morning go for a walk and explore the street vendors just south of the town center. This is the time to take look what everyone has to offer.

Many vendors have the same items and prices can vary. Take notes, who has what for how much, most of the vendors shut down around 4 PM.
If it has been a slow day, prices later in the afternoon will drop for a quick sale.
Are you around the Town Center during lunch - food vendors offer a great assortment.
My favorite is usually parked on the east side of the square and offers fresh tacos. BBQ Marlin or prawns (camerons) are incredible for just $15 pesos each.

In the afternoon - get the BBQ going. Talk with your neighbor. Share the BBQ and merge your meals. This is a wonderful way to make new friends. After sunset make sure you have bug spray to apply to exposed skin.
In fact it is not a bad idea to spray before going on walks. Just another warning about bugs - inside or out - if you spill something, clean it up now. Don't leave it for the maid.
Tiny sugar ants are everywhere. They send out scouts and if they find just one crumb, an army will return. Geckos also appear just about anywhere. If you find one inside, don't hurt it.
They are the best defense against other undesirable critters. For the local night life check out the newly remodeled Shamrock Irish Pub with your hosts Sharon and Jesse, or for great dancing La Pachanga or the Drunkin Duck with Courtney behind or on top of the bar. For the sports enthusiast check out Yo Yo Mo's across the street.
Great Stay!
We recently stayed at the one-bedroom casita.
It was a wonderful stay. The pictures really don't do it justice!!!

The casita is very clean, well-maintained, and very comfortable. The owners were very helpful and answered all our questions and concerns, The property caretaker lives nearby and is a great resource.
We would recommend staying here and hope to stay here with other members of our family in the future.

The location is very central, with a supermini for groceries around the corner, numerous restaurants steps away, and the beach is approximately 1/2 block away. Bucerias town centre is a 5-minute walk away.
