Welcome to our breathtaking Puerto Vallarta villa, "Villa Esplendora"
Puerto Vallarta in Jalisco, Mexico, blends the lush tropical jungles and pristine waters with the charm and elegance that is Puerto Vallarta. Villa Esplendora is situated on the South Shore of the Bay of Banderas very near the Los Arcos ecological marine preserve. This exquisite villa is the perfect blend of tasteful design and comfortable living in harmony with its natural surroundings with elements such as tropical gardens, artificial lakes and waterfalls.
A vacation at Villa Esplendora can accommodate those that simply want to relax and be pampered, and those that enjoy exploring the city night life and the rich natural wonders of the area. Whatever your travel mindset, be sure to leave the cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping, and cooking to our excellent staff!
Esplendora features three spacious oceanfront master suites with king beds and private Jacuzzis, and two beautifully appointed Garden bedrooms adjacent to unique bamboo gardens and waterfalls. One of the Garden bedrooms features two queen beds while the other bedrooms have kings. All are equipped with full baths.
Spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, Los Arcos and the Sierra Madre Mountains abound at Villa Esplendora. The home features all natural granite, marble and local canterra stone throughout the nearly 8,000 sq ft of living and entertaining area.
Master Suites - There are three oceanfront master suites with unobstructed panoramic views of Banderas Bay. Retractable doors open up these rooms to the sky and ocean and all three enjoy the comforts of king beds and in addition to private Jacuzzis perched on private balconies.
Bamboo Garden Bedrooms - Bamboo gardens and cascading waterfalls lead guests to these cozy private bedrooms in the interior of the home, one equipped with a king bed and the other with two queen beds.
Dining/Kitchen/Family Room - The grand staircase leads to this area where the kitchen, dining room, island bar and family room all blend together to make entertaining easy and enjoyable. This area seamlessly opens to the huge pool terrace area through open retractable doors.
Pool Terrace - The pool terrace features a large infinity pool, 10 person Jacuzzi, dining palapa, barbeque, rotisserie and wet bar. The pool is bookmarked by two fountains and fire pits that provide warm atmosphere at night. Speakers located on the pool terrace connect to the whole house sound system.

– Entirely up to you. However, experience shows us that guests are so impressed with the food, service, and friendliness of our wonderful villa staff, they are eager to show their appreciation. A lot of guests ask for tipping suggestions. We recommend $10/person/day. So, a group of 5 staying for 5 nights would come out to a total of $250 USD.

Mark purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Mark chose South Zone
We love Puerto Vallarta. In particular the South Shore is lush, tropical, and more scenic with the Sierra Madre mountains lining the coast. Plus, the beaches and water are cleaner than those of the North Shore. We like the close proximity to the beautiful Old Town of Vallarta while still having the solitude of a private villa.

I can't say enough great things about this place and especially the whole process dealing with Mark. He is always quick to respond and helpful in every way. The place exceeded our expectations, it was huge! When they say "two bedroom suite" its more like two separate apartments, which is great for sharing! There is two separate entrances for the different suites, but there is also a foyer in between the two doors for easy access. Lots of dishes and cutlery, although the toaster needs to be replaced (only toasts one side?). The patio and the view are INSANE. I had coffee and breakfast out there every morning. If you are cruising through different VRBOs for this resort, do yourself a favour and just book with these guys.
Thank you so much for being our guest. We're happy you enjoyed our condo and would love to have you back in the future!
Just returned from this wonderful place. The house and view are amazing. The staff made sure our every need was met. We lounged by the pool with drinks and enjoyed the lazy days. I would recommend this place to anyone.
Best Vacation Ever!!!
We just got back from spending 1 week at this incredibly spectacular home and we are already planning our return trip! The home is breathtakingly gorgeous, the location is perfect, and the staff is AMAZING!
The Home: the home is nearly 8000 square feet of high end materials. Photos don’t do it justice. You are welcomed as you walk through the gate by a serene water feature. The rooms are spacious, the beds are super comfortable, the showers and bath tubs are unique and the views from 3 of the rooms are SPECTACULAR! Each room has its own bathroom and tv. The family room is large and comfortable. The pool and hot tub are beautiful and kept at a perfect temperature. They overlook the ocean and you will not be able to get enough of the gorgeous views and sunsets. We are all of our meals at the palapa that is on the edge of the property overlooking the ocean. There is not a sandy beach in front of the property but there is one within a short walking distance. The house is located about 20-30 minutes by taxi from Puerto Vallarta and less than 5 minutes from the fishing village of Mismaloya.
Staff: the staff is so amazing that my kids literally cried when we left to the airport because they were missing them so much. Sergio is the nicest, calmest, most helpful and accommodating guy. He helped coordinate every aspect of our trip and made sure that we had everything we needed. Daniel is the most amazing chef. His breakfast creations were amazing (French toast, pancakes, chilaquiles, crepes), his homemade chips, guacamole and salsa are unbelievably good, and the dinners he made for us still make my mouth water (enchiladas, fajitas, filet mignon, bacon wrapped shrimp with pineapple salsa..). His desserts were
the highlight of our meals (key lime pie, sopapillas, banana flambé with coconut ice cream and the best chocolate pie ever). The housekeepers keep the house immaculate throughout your stay and even wash, iron and fold your clothes!! I can’t say enough about these wonderful people. I feel like they are family.
This house and it’s hospitable staff made our vacation the best ever. We will back soon!
Best vacation ever
This was the first time my children and grandchildren went on a vacation The house was beautiful and the surroundings were beautiful . Daniel And Sergio were wonderful. The food was delicious and
Everything we asked for,. Everyone loved the infinity pool and hot tub. Especially my grandchildren. Daniel did everything to make our stay relaxing and perfect. The rest of the staff were friendly and always smiling. Whenever we all wanted to go somewhere Sergio was always ready to give us advice and call a taxi or van to pick us up. Gave us great advice on what adventures to take. Again it was beyond my dreams of a perfect vacation. Thank you so much to Sergio and Daniel for doing everything possible to make our first vacation together so perfect.
Best vacation destination we have ever seen
I can not say enough nice things about this amazing house and the fantastic staff that helped make this the best vacation ever. The house is truly unbelievable, the pictures don't even do it justice. It is luxurious and extravagant and beautiful. Every day we couldn't believe our luck that we were able to find such a gem. In addition, the staff could not be better at what they do. The meals that Daniel cooked were always delicious and decadent. And Sergio always went the extra mile to make sure our trip was even better than we hoped. The cleaning staff kept the house incredibly clean and did our laundry every single day. The extra details that the entire staff always provided were such a treat! We truly loved our stay!
From the minute we arrived to the time of our departure Villa Esplendora far exceeded all of our expectations. The Villa itself is the most luxurious Villa I have ever seen. Each room is furnished with beautiful and unique pieces of art. The views from all 3 ocean front bedrooms, the dining room, the living room, the infinity pool and hottub are absolutely breathtaking. We were fortunte to witness the best aqua marine show during our vacation. With adult and baby humpback whales, dolphins, sea turtles, small eagle sting rays, and giant 20' Manta Rays jumping and swimming in the ocean right in front of the Villa.
The STAFF....where do I start. Sergio and his team are absolutely "OVER THE TOP"!!!! Sergio's attention to detail is impeccible. Always there to assist in plannig our meals, day trips, or the beverage of the day. We expected to be out and about seeing the sights but, we had the best entertainment and atmosphere at our own poolside with a drink that never got emptied and a host that did everything they could to make us smile and sing louder. "Roxanne" was a favourite :)
You honestly haven't lived until you have tried Chef Daniel's home made Salsa and Gaucomole and keylime pie. The meals are fine dining at its best. Meche not only ensured the Villa was spotless during our stay but she also did our laundry. Can you imagine going home with clean laundry......again over the top! The experience staying at the Villa is definitely one you will never forget. It truely is a Trip of A Lifetime thanks to Sergio and his Staff for looking after each and every one of our wishes.
Snorkling & Diving: At Mismaloya Beach, just 2 miles South of Villa Esplendora, you will find snorkeling and diving tours that will fully equip you for a short jaunt to the Los Arcos ecological marine preserves - which boasts the best diving and snorkeling in the Puerto Vallarta area. You can also take many different excursions that leave from the Marina Terminal in town.
Charter Fishing: Puerto Vallarta has some wonderful fishing excursions. Just tell our houseman Sergio and he'll set everything up for you.
Jungle Canopy Tour: This is a must visit in Puerto Vallarta and is lots of fun. Our favorite tour company is Canopy Tours De Los Veranos.
Golf: Our favorite courses are located at Vista Vallarta, where you will find two championship golf courses - one designed by Jack Nicklaus and the other by Tom Weiskoff. Wow!
Whale Watching: You can take a whale watching cruise or just a lovely sunset cruise where you are almost certain to see whales from December through April, along with the typical sightings of Dolphins and other marine life. Make sure you bring some binoculars!
Getting to and from downtown Puerto Vallarta is easy. Just a few minute ride away, taxis are plentiful and cheap. If you want to feel like a local, there is also a bus route that goes directly downtown that comes right to our villa!
