Villa de la Luz was my first VRBO, and I couldn't have been more pleased with the experience.
We were a group of 3 couples (2 straight, 1 gay) and 3 singles for a total of 9 travelers. The home was the perfect size - it felt very large. When one wanted time away from the group, it was easy to find a corner of the house nobody else was in. And by the same token, all of the "gathering areas" (dining room/living room/patio areas) all had more than enough seating where we could all gather and spend time together.
4 of the bedrooms are on the upper floor, and one is on the ground floor off of the billiard room. All of the bedrooms were spacious and we could not hear any noise from any of the other couples rooms. Originally, we planned on placing someone out in the Surfer's Shack, but it really is too small and removed. There is also no air conditioning out there, so depending on the season it could be fairly unbearable. I wouldn't plan on using it. Two of our singles are very close friends and they simply took the room with two beds.
The kitchen was clean and well stocked with various helpful items. The fridge was nice & large. The bottled water dispenser was helpful, but you should plan on refilling it several times.
The maid was an absolutely lovely woman who came every day. We tried to clean up after ourselves, but she was always very good about slipping in and doing dishes before we had a chance. Linen changes/bed making was also handled very quietly. We chose to engage with her and get to know her a bit, but she was absolutely unobtrusive and one would not notice she was there if for some reason you didn't feel like engaging.
The pool and hot tub were fantastic. There is a path down to a playground that runs right by the outdoor area, so one should expect the occasional walk by. Didn't bother us at all and was infrequent.
The only difficult aspect was our arrival. The gentlemen who work the gate that lets you into the Pedregal community did not know where the house was, or how to give us directions to get to it. We ended up driving aimlessly searching for the street. Eventually we got the bright idea to stop at one of the leasing/sales offices and the gentleman who worked there was kind enough to direct us (we'd luckily ended up pretty close to the home). I recommend having someone meet you at the gate.
Overall, I was loved my experience at Villa de la Luz and highly recommend booking!!!
