Ventanas Al Mar - luxury and beauty near the sea

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this gorgeous villa for 10 days and it was complete bliss! The villa itself is in a prime location, and it has all the amenities. I would rather stay here than at a 5 star resort. The beach across the street, Playa Hemelas, is the most perfect little beach. It's secluded, safe, with white sands and clear blue water. The villa is spacious and luxurious - with plenty of indoor and outdoor space for entertaining. We had all of our breakfasts on the outdoor patio, enjoying the gorgeous ocean views every morning. The house staff, Loretta the housekeeper and Jose the gardener, were friendly, respectful and incredibly helpful. Any questions regarding the house (such as how to heat the pool) were answered promptly. We had plenty of time to explore the area and decided that "Sierra del Mar", the name of this gated, luxury home community, is the best location in PVR and we are hoping to make our trips to this villa an annual event. The community itself has beautiful architecture, romantic cobblestone streets, is incredibly clean and safe, and the security guards at the gate are friendly and helpful. This is truly a slice of paradise, and it's a fantastic deal. We can't thank Jacky enough - this property is the perfect setting for your dream vacation.

We had an amazing week at this property. Jacky and Pamela (Jacky's amazing house manager) made our stay incredible. The house is gorgeous and in great condition, best of both worlds--indoor and outdoor. I highly recommend hiring Pamela's amazing daughter as your cook-they prepared incredible meals for us and Pamela made all of our reservations for us, each day. It was like having our own personal concierge. Prior to our visit, Jacky was incredibly responsive and helped us coordinate every last detail of our stay.

We have 2 little kids and I was worried about the logistics of this-it was incredibly easy and everyone slept beautifully.

We can't wait to return to this treasure of a property!!

Pure bliss!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this lovely home for 11 days. We could have stayed forever. The house was beautifully furnished, the kitchen well equipped, the pool nice and warm and the view breathtaking. We even saw whales jumping in the ocean while having breakfast on the patio. The house was very well maintained, the security guards were friendly and kind. Last but not least, the beach was absolutely stunning. Even though it is a little bit of a hike back to the house the scenery, lovely manicured gardens and lovely houses made it well worth the effort. Everyone we met said that our beach was the best in the Puerto Vallarta area and we agree! We would not hesitate to stay at the house again given the opportunity.

Owner's Response: Autumn, I am so glad you had a wonderful time. It is hard for people to appreciate the beauty of the Beach and location until you experience it. Mi Casa su Casa whenever you would like to return! Thank you for staying and being wonderful guests. Jacky

Super Location

  • 4 of 5

We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary with children and grandchildren at this lovely vacation home. We all enjoyed the peace, quiet and beautiful greenery that surrounds this comfortable home. The villa is well maintained and kept very clean by Loretta the housekeeper. The home is very attractive with central open area with fountain. We did have a toddler with us, but you are able to close the glass doors to the fountain area and have no need to worry about the little ones. The whole wall is glass, so you still feel the full effect of the outdoor feature.

Public transport and taxis are available at the entrance to this gated community. The guards at the entrance are friendly and helpful. We did rent cars for five days, mainly because we had little ones with us. Car rentals are very inexpensive. We arranged for a shuttle from the airport to the villa, and on leaving drove ourselves and returned our rentals at the airport.

Located south of Puerto Vallarta and north of Mismaloya, the location is great. We loved the laid back feeling of Mismaloya, and south of there there is a great restaurant called Le Kliff.

We would certainly recommend this villa and would consider returning for another vacation. It was a great place for making memories! Jacky the owner was very gracious and accommodating.

WOW what a house. We stayed at Jacky’ s house for one month and it was amazing. The pictures do not do justice to how beautiful this place is. We got married in town at La Palapa Rest because of the Jacky’s review. She was more than helpful with all my questions before we arrived in PV. Pam the property manager was quick to respond to my questions, and helped us out by setting up a van to take us to the house when we arrived in PV. The housekeeper was amazing and kept everything spotless. This house is in a gated community so no need to feel unsafe. We did not rent a car any need as the city bus stops right in front of the sierra Del mar estates. It was so nice to relax in a private location we felt like we had our own retreat. I loved this house and all the people who helped us out... thank you.

Great stay over Christmas

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here over Christmas with two other couples and our son and had a wonderful time. The place was just as the pictures describe and all the rooms especially the master bedroom were really big, we actually ended up using the huge closet of the master bedroom for our son's crib. The location is a little out of town but as all the other reviewers pointed out a short taxi ride into town. We were content to spend most of our time at the villa and the local beach, which had really nice white sand, not too crowded and a nearby hotel bar with amazing views. Only issue we had, was the pool was a little deep for our son, would have preferred a gradual sloped one and the house in general was not the safest for young toddlers (lots of tile and open areas).

Car: recommended

This area and beach are truly the nicest in Puerto Vallarta. This is a tropical paradise with everything you could want. It is close to town but also peaceful and relaxing. The Villa is laid out so everyone has 'space' and intimate enough to feel like home. The South Shore of Puerto Vallarta is the most beautiful and is slightly cooler with the offshore breeze. You can access Mismaloya to the South and Vallarta to the North, this is a truly special spot!
