About lynn

In 2006 we built Villa Encantada with the

idea of building a custom luxury villa in Puerto Vallarta that incorporated many of the things that we had found lacking in properties we had previously rented for our family over the years. We also wanted to assemble a top notch staff that would make guests truly feel at home! It was quite a journey, but Villa Encantada and staff are the result of those efforts!

We have had a love affair with Puerto Vallarta for many years and think guests will come to love it too!

lynn purchased this villa in 2006

Why lynn chose South Zone

The Amapas/Conchas Chinas area on the southside where Villa Encantada is

located, is Puerto Vallarta's nicest area. In addition, Villa Encantada's location is

a short 12 minute walk to the beach and also a short walk to Zona Romantica on the southside of the City.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your hacienda and staff were everything we had read about and MORE. I can't say enough and words can't put how elated me and my wife were to have chosen your place for this family get together. I would like to use your services again and will definitely pass this info onto my friends at Boeing.

Thanks for every thing and happy new year to you all.

A luxurious, relaxing Villa paradise...

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough great things about my week long stay at Villa Encantada. Not only is the Villa absolutely stunning and picture perfect but it is also clean, luxurious and very well maintained.

The ocean views from the pool and second floor balcony are incredible, especially at sunset. The bedrooms are so inviting and the bed we slept on was so comfortable.

Every single staff member went out of their way to make our stay very enjoyable. They were so accommodating, professional and courteous. The food that was prepared for us was fresh, authentic and tasted incredible! The freshly made chips, guacamole, salsa and margaritas upon arrival was an excellent way to start the trip! The coconut shrimp, bacon wrapped shrimp and fresh fish prepared for us was my favorite!

The location is close and very convenient to downtown shopping and restaurants... a short 5-10 minute drive. To be honest though, the quality and taste of the food prepared at the Villa surpassed any food we had while out downtown! You may not need to leave! I truly felt like I was staying at a resort all week.

The owners are very responsive and helpful with any questions that you may have during your stay. I couldn’t imagine relaxing anywhere else, it feels like your own piece of paradise. I would highly recommend staying at Villa Encantada, it made my trip to Puerto Vallarta that much more enjoyable! I can’t wait to go back.

HEAVEN on Earth. Literally. I want to move in!

  • 5 of 5

Okay so let me first start by saying I am a hotel/rental SNOB. I can always find something wrong with everywhere I stay. Except here. This place literally could not get any better. It is perfect. The only problem is finding time to go back! Okay so the Villa? AMAZING. This place looks like I flipped open a design magazine and a dream Villa popped out. It is perfect. The rooms are huge, impeccably decorated and SO CLEAN. Even staying there with a full house-every room feels private and incredibly relaxing. And did I mention CLEAN?! Now the staff? I want to invite them to my house for the holidays. They were incredible. I don't know how they keep the chef around...he could honestly open his own restaurant-his food is THAT GOOD. The housekeepers might as well have been go down for breakfast and by the time you go back to your room your bed is made and everything is perfect. Once again let me tell you...SO CLEAN! The pool was fantastic, the house was amazing...I can't speak highly enough of this place. My family and I had the most relaxing, luxurious feeling vacation we have EVER had and we all travel quite often. We can't wait to go back. Thank you for our dream vacation Villa Encantada!

Amazing villa with views, staff to match!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Encantada was the best Villa I've ever stayed at! The Villa was in amazing condition. Margaritas, fresh made chips and guac were served upon our arrival and it was paradise from then on. We spent much of our time hanging out at the pool and eating freshly cooked meals by the chef Walter. The houseman Rene and the housekeeper Isabel were there whenever we needed anything, although it was almost as if nobody was there. The place was huge-5 bedrooms and a full bath in each. A few of the rooms had awesome views off into the jungle across the valley or of the ocean down below. The location was perfect. A short walk to the beach or 5 minute cab to town. We can't wait to come back soon!

Very beautiful villa with the best staff and chef

  • 5 of 5

A group of our friends had a retreat at this property and everyone absolutely loved it. The place was nice and clean. The staff were very helpful. The villa was more beautiful than in the picture. The best part of our stay was the cooking from chef Walter. I have been to Puerto Vallarta several times and have eaten at different high rating Yelp review restaurants but Walter's cooking is by far the best that I have had. His coconut shrimps and shrimps wrapped with bacon are to die for. We also had ceviche and other salads that were fresh and nicely done. His empanadas were exceptional. It was cooked just right with flavorful meat in the inside and slightly crispy on the outside that you can taste the fresh corn flour used.

Other staff include Rene who speaks English very well and were very helpful in arranging any needs including drinks and food stock up. Isabela was keeping the place clean for us daily. Thank you everyone for a wonderful time. We will definitely come back and stay here again in the future.

A wonderful week, pampered by René, Walter and Isabel! We wanted a relaxing week. We all had been to PV enough times to not need to see the usual tourist things and Villa Encantada was perfect. Walter is an amazing seafood chef, René was always available to help in any situation and the house was immaculately cleaned every day by Isabel. Leave your worries at home and enjoy one of the best weeks of your life!
