Amazing house, pool, meals and hospitality

  • 5 of 5
We did not know what to expect when we made the reservation but the villa is exactly as shown in the pictures on VRBO. It is a beautiful place and a great location for a family vacation. Upon arrival we were greeted by Richard and his welcome margarita reception, followed by a most delicious chicken enchilada dinner. This was an ideal venue in which to celebrate our parents' anniversary. The festivities included a superb dinner prepared by chef Tina and her staff, the wonderful anniversary cake, the surprise visit by the mariachi quintet and the piñata. We were all very impressed by the villa itself, the scenery, the outdoor living room and pool (always refreshing) and the memorable, delicious, and visually impressive breakfasts and dinners. We have tried to make the breakfast smoothies at home but Tina's and Anna’s are much better. We loved sitting outside and enjoying the scenery while eating breakfast. We took advantage of the walking/running opportunities on the beach and the Malecon. All in all, it was a memorable vacation for the entire family and we owe a deep debt of gratitude to Richard, Tonie, Tina, Anna, Krisla and Jose for their roles in contributing to a great week. MUCHAS GRACIAS Y HASTA QUE NOS VEAMOS DE NUEVO.

Perfect...again!

  • 5 of 5
I made my third trip to Villa Francisco for a guys fishing and golf vacation. All of my visits have been great, but this time we made more use of Tina's great cooking and I am glad we did. The house is super well appointed, the staff is incredibly helpful, and the food was out of this world. It's a hard place to leave, and we are already lining up dates for next April.

Amazing house! Even better outdoor space and pool!!

  • 5 of 5
The house is absolutely beautiful with all the amenities one could hope for. We were three families staying together and the huge bedrooms all with king beds and large tubs meant that everyone felt like they had a great room. The staff is wonderful. Our kids (3 2.5 year olds) had a great time and the staff was so accommodating. Tina is an amazing chef. Everyone was so wonderful, making sure that every arrangement was taken care of. The biggest draw of the house was the outdoor living room and infinity pool. We spent so much time lounging and swimming. You really don't even need to leave the house to have a great vacation full of relaxing, fantastic food, oh and wonderful views. We can't wait to go back.

Incredible home, spectacular view, priceless villa team!

  • 5 of 5
Somehow, Villa Francisco turns out be even better than advertised and reviewed! I've stayed at many vacation rentals/nice hotels around the world and Villa Francisco tops them all. Past reviewers are right....the pictures don't do the place justice. All rooms are very roomy, comfortable, and well appointed. There were 9 adults in our group and there was ample space for everyone to stretch out and/or seek out solitude if they wanted. The jungle view room is the "smallest" bedroom, but is still nicer and larger than most hotel rooms. There's an enclosed seating area (with a double bed) you pass through to get to this room. It can be combined to make a large suite. A door separates the two rooms and we used the sitting area for additional sleeping. The sitting room is best suited for a single adult or kids. The views are incredible. The outdoor space was our favorite part. We spent most of the time relaxing in the pool and lounging in the outdoor living room complete with bar and hammock.

As nice as the home is, it's the Villa Francisco team that will keep us coming back. Everyone was phenomenal and easily rivaled the support you'd get from the nicest hotel. Starting with my initial inquiry, through my return home, Richard had been great. He's very responsive and sincerely focused on ensuring we had a good time. And thanks for the welcome margaritas. They were great and much needed after a day of traveling! Toni (concierge) did an excellent job providing us with tips and making arrangements for us. We particularly appreciate her coordinating transportation for the many trips around the city, especially given the size of our group. Anna did an incredible job keep all the rooms and villa spotless. We're still trying to figure out how she got our laundry looking and smelling so good. The pool man/gardener kept the outside looking as spotless as the inside. He even wipes down all the outdoor furniture each morning. But the star of the team is Chef Tina. Each day she masterfully prepared delicious meals that rivaled just about any restaurant. Meals were served at incredibly set tables at the requested times. Chef Tina also shopped for us each day. All we had to do was put it on the list and it would be waiting for us by the next morning. And what a great person! We loved laughing and joking with her each day. Thanks Villa Francisco team for such a wonderful time.

Everything and more!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful time we had at the Villa! The beautiful home, the breathtaking view, the spectacular weather, but most of all - the incredible staff! Tina and Anna made everyday an adventure! We had a few special food needs that Tina had absolutely no problem with. She served up the most amazing dishes that suited all of us, from the vegetarian to the meat lover! She even inspired me to be more creative with my own cooking. We looked forward to each meal with great anticipation! She never disappointed! All grocery shopping was done for us. Anna kept the inside of the house spotless and helped Tina prepare all of the food, and Jose (?) kept the grounds wonderfully groomed. We worked with Richard for a year planning this vacation and he was always friendly, prompt, and helpful in his responses. We felt very much "at home" in this wonderful vacation villa! Couldn't have asked for anything better!

The Best Ever!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I were greeted by the owner Richard upon arrival and from that moment on we were treated like royalty. The Villa is absolutely beautiful and is immaculate in every way. The view of old town and the bay are incredible. Plenty of room for the 10 of us, the outdoor living area, the pool and the open concept kitchen/living room provide lots of space to relax. Tina the chef took us in as though we were her own family and we did her as well....what a wonderful person. The meals are so well presented, and so good and flavorful and healthy! Just give her your list of what you desire and she will do the shopping for you giving you all that time to just enjoy and relax. Old town is just a 10 min walk down the hill. The Villa staff are so nice Anna looks after any need you may have and Tina can guide you to all kinds of adventure if you are the type. Most of my family has traveled lots and this vacation is on the top of our list. WOW! Thank you once again Richard, Tina, Anna, Toni and the pool guy sorry I can't remember his name. Cheers! to you all we will see you again. Brian, Brenda and family from Alberta.
