Villa Estrella is a gorgeous oceanfront villa set in stunning nature, surrounded by ocean on 3 sides, incredible natural surroundings, 14 km of unspoiled sandy beach, superb surfing. 2 swimming pools, including heated infinity pool on the ocean's edge.

Fly to Puerto Vallarta and get picked up, we are 65 miles north, a bit past Sayulita, at Platanitos, in an area of stunning beauty, away from the masses of tourists, high prices, traffic and vendors, set in wondrous ocean landscape, with the Sierra Madre Mountains behind us, an eco preserve estuary brimming with fish, turtles, and exotic birds.

Villa Estrella is an open type, architect designed palapa designed for you and nature to commune in wondrous style and luxury, live the soft warm ocean breezes, blue ocean is everywhere, three bedrooms, three baths.

A stunning salon with 30 ft high ceilings, roofed with an incredible palm thatch basket weave, festooned with romantic lighting for the night. The villa is furnished and decorated with comfort, imagination, warmth and style. Bring your ipod and let your musical dreams soar on our space filling stereo.

Rosa the queen of your kitchen will take care of you; feed you, clean for you. Ismael your host will attend to all your needs for adventure, excursions or any other requirements you may have.

Our meal plan provides all the food snacks and drinks; your refrigerator is stocked just like at home. Rosa cooks up tasty home cooked fare, all you need do is sit down and enjoy. Come to be pampered, come to be spoiled, come to relax.

Come to see the whales, come to help release the baby sea turtles, come to surf, come to ride horses on the beach, come to hike in to the waterfall, come to fish, it’s all here.

Come for the real Mexico, no tourist traps here, see the simple villages, go to a fiesta in the town square, go to the village market, go to the rustic restaurants in Platanitos for mesquite grilled snapper, camarones al mojo de ajo, icy beer, barefoot in the sand. Watch the Mexican families and the children, it’s absolutely wonderful.

Visit the historical Spanish naval port of San Blas, see the old fort and cathedral, buy trinkets in the square. Go to the market. San Blas is the port from which the King of Spain launched all exploration of the Pacific Northwest, and resupplied all the missions of California.

Villa Estrella is one of 15 lovely villas on the peninsula known as Punta el Custodio, a beautiful village-like community with winding cobbled footpaths, vehicles are discouraged, gardens and jungles predominate, many houses almost invisible behind the masses of palms and flowers.

Excellent management ensures that the villa is perfectly maintained and that guests are treated with attention, respect and dignity. There is 24 hour support, gate access is controlled. Villa Estrella is in one of the safest regions of Mexico, theft and crime are unknown in this community, the local Mexicans are warm hearted, friendly, outgoing and charming.

About Jackie

Villa Estrella was lovingly designed, built and furnished by its Architect owners for eventual retirement. The villa is beautifully decorated in an intimate personal manner. The love for nature, and the way the villa brings nature inside is stunning.

Jackie purchased this villa in 2000

Why Jackie chose Platanitos

We love nature. We disdain mass tourism. We look for escape from commercialism. We seek individuality of experience. We have traveled the globe and have rarely encountered a more beautiful or unspoiled setting. Rare and hard to find seclusion combined with luxury, service, safety, community.

What makes this villa unique

Incredible natural setting. Ocean on 3 sides, beautiful swimming pools. Your own full time maid who also cooks for you. A host manager to take care of all your needs. Whales in winter, turtles in summer.

Amazing Villa and Outstanding Scenary

  • 5 of 5
This was my first time staying at Villa Estrella and I sure hope it is not my last. Even though we came at the end of raining season there was still ample sunshine and some amazing thunderstorms in the evening. The Villa itself is breathtaking from the very first moment you walk in the door, you are immediately blown away by the view of the ocean from your open air living room with a huge vaulted ceiling. The location, in the small gated resort community of villas, is perfectly situated directly beside the communal pool if you are looking to do laps. However, the villa also has it's own infinity pool attached to the villa perfect for keeping cool and staring out into the ocean for hours on end. If that wasn't enough the Villa came with the most amazing Mexican ladies who were there daily cooking us amazing meals and keeping everything in order. Rosa and Rakell were so sweet I just wish I could have them everyday. The meals were absolutely delicious. Everyone there including the property manager Ismael were so helpful. I would highly recommend if you get the chance to stay here. I hope to again in the very near future.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Villa Estrella from Feb 14-24, 2014. This villa is gorgeous and very comfortable. There was a review about the beds being hard but we loved the beds, they're like a memory foam mattress. The best part of this vacation was having Rosa and Raquel come in every day and cooking us breakfast, lunch and supper. They also clean bathrooms, make beds and did our laundry everyday, total luxury!! We rented a car and drove from Puerto Vallarta and we were really glad we did this. The directions Ulrich gave us were perfect and we had no problem getting there, it took us 2 hours. We liked being able to go on little day trips, we went to San Blas (45 min away), Sayulita (1hr 15min away), Zucualpan (15 min away), Las Varas (25 min away). There is no town close by that you can walk to if you needed to get to an ATM or if you wanted to do some shopping, so a car was great. We went boogie boarding everyday (boogie boards are provided) and crossed over the the beach a couple of times while there. You can only get across to the beach at certain times of the day because of the tides running in and out of the estuary. When you can get across you have to walk through the water which is at the deepest up to your waist with big waves coming in.

We loved the infinity pool, we never even used the community pool. Just sitting in the pool and looking out to the ocean watching whales jump, pelicans flying over and fish jumping was our favourite activity.

The no-see-ums were a big problem for us, they come out in the morning and at dusk. We wore our insect repellent but we all got bit badly. We heard from a few people that a good defence against this is to get a B-12 shot about 2 wks before your holiday, which we would for sure do next time.

We took our teenage daughter with us and she found she was bored with no internet or TV to watch in the evenings. I would take a computer (there is no television) and movies and a friend for her next time!!

This place is great for a quiet, relaxing holiday.

Been over 10 times to this amazing villa!

  • 5 of 5
I have been a regular return vacationer to Villa Estrella over the last decade because it is exactly what I am looking for in a vacation home. It is away from the masses, private, luxurious and beautiful. The views are to die for, the villa is perched on a cliff with the surf crashing right below and if you go over to the other side of the point you will see the amazing beach that goes on forever with hardly a soul in sight. (The villa is surrounded on 3 sides by ocean.)

Some favourite moments include cocktails in the infinity pool at sunset, star gazing from the infinity pool, beach combing the 12 mile beach, going to Platanitos for camarones and simply relaxing around the beautiful and well kept grounds. Must do excursions are whale watching (we have seen many whales up close it never gets old,) La Tobara jungle cruise, hike to El Cora waterfall, and horseback riding on the beach.

Another thing that is amazing about villa Estrella is the in house cook! How often do you go away where you don't have to worry about meals? And sorry All Inclusives don't count because the food is usually garbage at those places. Rose is a sweet heart and her food is absolutely delicious. From her fresh squeezed orange juice every morning to her home made, hand rolled tortillas, you are sure to come home with a couple extra lbs.

If you are looking for a truly special holiday that ticks off all the boxes, (gorgeous, pools, beach, relaxing, great food, private) then Villa Estrella is a MUST!

Owner's Response: So many Villa Estrella guests return year after year to restore themselves. They become addicted to the magic of sea and sunshine a, breezes nature, flowers, and the beautiful people that take care of everything.

It's an all inclusive worry free relaxation that heals body and soul from the damages of the rat race, the snow and ice, the hurry and worry.

Over time we become like a family with our repeat guests, because we share deep common bonds. We love the intense communion with the cycles of nature, far from the crowds of conventional mass tourism. We share a love of privacy, individuality, personal service and luxury.

Thank you so much for your beautiful review, and you are always welcome back.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent two incredible weeks in this hidden Nayarit gem which is one of a number of properties in a gated community; an approximate 2-hour drive from Puerto Vallarta. Undoubtedly, this Villa Estrealla, designed by its owner, Ulrich and surrounded by ocean, has the best location. We fell asleep and awakened to the sound of waves and formations of pelicans flying overhead.
Rosa, the cook/maid, prepared delicious meals for us and worked with our dietary preferences (we love hot and spicy!). Ismael, the administrator responded to all our needs, including our early morning fishing trip with the 'Reubens' where we landed 20 barracuda, 2 mackerel and 4 white snappers, which Rosa used to make excellent ceviche and fish dinners.
The beach is gorgeous but requires some planning. One needs to cross over the estuary at low tide. A tide chart was available and with minimal effort we managed to cross over on most days. It is a pristine, 12 mile long beach with more birds than humans on it. We were fortunate to see the release of baby sea turtles from the nearby sanctuary. We spent hours frolicking in the warm ocean and boogie boarding on the surf (I haven't had so much fun in years).
The main pool is not heated but was comfortable enough for our daily long swims and to attend a small aqua fitness class offered by one the residents.
I would be remiss not to mention that with the warm climate and water come the no see ums, pesky creatures, which did not bother me or my wife but seemed to get the upper hand with one of our guests. Nothing that a bit of bug spray can't handle.
Cellular access is spotty and internet is slow and available only at the gatehouse. We found this to be an asset and not a liability.
The meal plan is great. No worries about making reservations and going for meals. The Sunday lunch at nearby Platanitos served grilled fish, which was as good as I have ever tasted. The restaurant is a bit of a dive but it is worth going there at least once to get a feel for local life.
We loved our stay at Villa Estrella and look forward to returning in the near future.
