Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

Whenever I see a listing on this website that has exclusively positive reviews, I tend to get a little suspicious. But in this case, I completely understand why everyone has rated this home 5 stars. By far and away, this was the best vacation I've ever had. Great location, beautiful house, incredible chef. The owner was very responsive and helpful. It's located up a very steep hill, so it might not be the best location for someone with limited mobility, but the height made for an amazing view of the bay. I'll definitely come back to this home.

Awesome Vaction Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was truly an amazing place to celebrate our 30th anniversary with our adult kids and grandchildren! From Richard's margarita greeting to the beautiful and delicious creations that Tina prepared for us every day.....it was all that we had hoped for and more. The home is every bit as beautiful as the website shows; the sunsets by the pool are magical, and floating in the heated pool while overlooking the twinkling city night-lights with a margarita in hand can't be beat. We spent most of the time on the patio where we could enjoy watching over the charming town yet feeling cozily tucked away in the 'jungle'. Every room is huge with plenty of privacy, yet the open floor plan was great for getting everyone (7 adults and two little ones) together without feeling crowded. The staff truly aims to please and pamper; the home was cleaned meticulously every day and once we learned we could put out dirty laundry, it was washed and folded and sitting on our beds the very same day! We left the meal planning up to Tina who did a spectacular job giving us creative and delicious meals that everyone loved! Our 9 month old grandson gobbled up everything Tina prepared! She introduced us to some local foods and produce (we hadn’t had chilli rellenos before) and put her heart and soul into every dish. The concierge service with Tonie was super-convenient and every driver they sent was so friendly and helpful. In all, this was a dream vacation that we’ll be talking about and re-living in our memory for a lifetime! Thank you Richard, Tina, Tonie, Carmen, Ghia (spelling?) and Jose for taking such great care of us!

One of a kind experience

  • 5 of 5

Loved Villa Francisco!

Can't say enough good things about it - other than I'm a little worried it will be booked solid for the next few years ;)

But really, Richard and Tina were amazing hosts - everyone in the staff was terrific, super helpful and accomodating.

The rooms were incredible, the beds were very comfortable, there were nice robes in all the rooms, TONS of room and everything was incredibly cared for and clean.

The food was spectacular - underline that SPECTACULAR - not one meal was so-so - every single meal was 5 stars.

We will definitely be back! Thank you so much for your hospitality!

Truly Magical!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Fransisco was home to our group for 5 wonderful nights and 6 amazing days. We were greeted by the staff and Richard, who made us spectacular margaritas! Somehow, the house is both big and luxurious but also welcoming and cozy. The staff was incredible. Food was AMAZING! The concierge did such a great job coordinating our outings and arranging for spa treatments at the house. The house and pool were cleaned daily. Everything was perfect. The location is good too. The airport is only 30 minutes away. The town and beach are just a short walk down hill. SOMETHING TO BE AWARE OF: there are a LOT of stairs down to the beach and the driveway to the house is very steep. It's great exercise, but if anyone in your group has mobility issues it is something to consider. We definitely plan to visit again! Chef Tina and her crew were a delight to be around and I'm not kidding when I say it was the best food I have ever had. And it was presented in such a beautiful way! If you want to visit Puerto Vallarta, give yourself the extra treat of staying in this wonderful home.

Loved this place!!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week at the Villa Francisco and it was the BEST! The villa is absolutely gorgeous and the views are stunning. Upon our arrival(that went very smoothly)we were greeted by Richard and his famous margaritas which rally hit the spot after a long day traveling. We also opted for the enchilada dinner that evening and were so glad we did, as the meal was exceptional. Chef Tina is such a sweetheart and has a great sense of humor. We would give her the basic idea on what we wanted and she would create a masterpiece meal every time. She introduced us to many of the local fruits and vegetables and took the time to answer all our questions regarding them. It was a true culinary experience for us all. The villas staff was always very kind and thoughtful. The villa, pool and grounds were kept spotless throughout our stay. Toni (concierge) was a big help in booking us a fishing boat and Tina made us a fish dinner that we will never forget (the fishing trip produced two big mahi mahi and a near miss on a monster marlin). I could go on and on about how much we enjoyed our stay, but I think you get the picture. If you have never tried a villa before you will not regret coming to this one. Thanks again Richard and your excellent staff for making our vacation so memorable. We look forward to seeing you all again.

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.
