Overview

Puerto Vallarta Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, Sleeps 10

Why stay in a boxy condo where you have to listen to street traffic and loud night club music all night? No chairs to fight over at the pool. Rent your own villa with a staff to take care of your every need. No cleaning, no grocery shopping, no laundry, you can just enjoy a beautiful, 4000 square foot, Mexican villa overlooking the Bay of Banderas and Puerto Vallarta. Villa Rosa is located in a neighborhood away from the bus traffic and nightclub noise like you do if you stay closer to the beach.

The villa is located on the south-side of Puerto Vallarta about a 15 minute walk to Los Muertos Beach. Tasteful furnishings grace the entire home on three floors. The first floor is the location of the living room, dining room, and kitchen. French doors open onto the terrace with a private heated (November through March) swimming pool. This is a private pool for the villa and not shared.

The home has gone 'green.' There are solar electric panels and solar water heater to help provide some of the electricity and most of the hot water.

House has purified water system.

A large circular staircase with stained glass windows leads you to the second and third floors. The master suite occupies the entire second floor with a bedroom, closet, and fantastic bathroom with an open air jacuzzi. It has a king-size bed.

The third floor has two bedrooms with private baths. One bedroom has two double beds and the other has a queen bed.

The fourth bedroom is under the pool area and has its own separate private entrance. There are two twin beds there which can be made into a king sized bed.

There are flat screen Smart TVs or smart DVD player in the living room and all the bedrooms so you can watch Netflix. Izzi is the local cable provider.

Telmex wireless WIFI throughout the property. Free phone calls to the United States and Canada. VOIP phone so people can call you free of charge from the States.

Bring the kids and grandkids. There is a high chair and playpen available for use. You can rent a stroller and other baby equipment here in Puerto Vallarta so you don't have to bring it with you. Please ask about it.

The villa has a maid and a chef. They will pamper you and create a truly relaxing vacation. You will be freed of cooking, cleaning, and laundry. You can pack a little lighter since you will have your personal laundry done. You can select from the Villa Rosa menu for up to two meals per day. Or just tell Carlos what you would like to have. Carlos and Vanessa will do the shopping for you once you give them money. It is truly a carefree way of vacationing.

To further enhance your experience 'spa services' in Villa Rosa are available at an additional charge. This is for both men and women. Massages, hair styling, haircuts, pedicures, manicures, and facials are available at a reasonable charge. This may be arranged in advance or when you arrive.

Also, if you require, meet and greet services at the airport are available. A person will meet you at the airport, give you a brief orientation to Puerto Vallarta and take you directly to Villa Rosa. The charge is $50.00 for up to two people and $10.00 per extra person. When you depart you will be picked up at Villa Rosa and taken to the airport.

Should you like to book tours or have someone make restaurant reservations for you, a tour guide is available to assist you.

The goal is to make your visit something you will remember.

About Tom Hicks

Property Manager that fell in love with Puerto Vallarta about 15 years ago. Found this beautiful house and love it.

Tom Hicks purchased this villa in 2003

Why Tom Hicks chose Puerto Vallarta

This property has it all. It is close to town, has a heated pool, 4 bedrooms and 4.5 baths, perfect for a family or group. The staff is fantastic. I love standing in the pool and looking out over the city. It is just heaven on earth to stand in the pool with your favorite beverage and look out over the city.

What makes this villa unique

The views from the villa are great. Original artwork in each room. Carlos and Vanessa make you feel at home.

Perfect 50th Birthday!!

  • 5 of 5

VillaRosa is outstanding. The nine of us booked the house for four nights to celebrate a very special birthday. Everything from the communication and coordination before we arrived to the amazing house, the incredible service, and the great location, we could have not asked for a better place. Of all the highlights that you must experience for yourself, one of our favorites was the service that Vanessa and Carlos provided. They were the most helpful and friendly helping us with special requests like getting a piñata with authentic Mexican candy and making sure we were fully stocked with everything we needed. They shared recipes from their amazing menu and even gave two of us a ride to airport! Everything they prepared was beautifully presented, accommodated to our schedule and most importantly, tasted delicious. We are sure there are many beautiful places to stay but they made the difference. Try Villa Rosa for yourself and enjoy as much as we did. PS: whoever gets the master suite is in for a treat! Thank you Tom for the delicious birthday cake.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to Puerto Vallarta and we had the great pleasure of staying in this villa in Zona Romantica. Carlos and Vanessa are great and take very good care of the villa. We had welcome snacks which were excellent and the fridge was stocked with some basics to get our week started. Carlos is an excellent chef and he will make some of the best food during your staying in Puerto Vallarta. The rooms are large, clean, and comfortable as are all the bathrooms. The are amazing views from all the roomsThere is plenty of hot water throughout the villa. The pool was extremely comfortable and HEATED!

The villa is close to everything in the Romantic Zone if you don't mind walking up the hill. During the day we used it as our daily exercise. At night after having some fun at the many bars and restaurants, we took a cab up the hill for 50 pesos. You could choose to have every meal at the villa though because Carlos's meals are that good.

We took a couple with us for their first time to Puerto Vallarta and now they can't wait to come back (they're long time Hawaii lovers and I think we've now swayed them). Upon my return trip to PV this will be the first place the I look to stay!

Well taken care of in this beautiful villa!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay at Villa Rosa, and it was nice to have Carlos and Vanessa taking care of things. They met us on our arrival with snacks and drinks, and had stocked the refrigerator with the items we requested on our pre-arrival form. Upon arrival, we took a look at the menu and wrote out what meals we would like throughout the week. Each day Carlos went to the market and purchased food for that day's meal(s), then presented us with the receipts. The food costs were quite reasonable, especially for the quality of the meals. Carlos is a talented chef...everyone in our party enjoyed each meal that we had. The villa itself was more than sufficient for our party of seven. The bedrooms were comfortable, air conditioning worked well, and very clean.

The location of the villa allows for a breathtaking view. The hill is amazingly steep to walk and the cobblestone makes it even more difficult. We almost always took a cab when returning from town. Many of the cab drivers do not know where the street is, and we had trouble having things delivered (lost luggage) because of this (and the fact that there are two entrances on two different streets). We learned to tell them one of the surrounding hotels or restaurants and to walk the rest of the way. The walk to town is quick and easy. You are only 5 minutes from restaurants and bars, and 10 from the beach/malecon.

The wi-fi at the villa worked well. We loved being able to use the master bedroom phone to call the US for free. This helped us stay in touch with family at home. One of the other reviews mentioned not having hot water. We had no trouble with this, you only need to let the water run for a couple of minutes before it gets hot.

The only slight negative I can see with the villa is the lack of privacy in the master bathroom. While this wasn't really a bother to us, I can see how people may be alarmed by the lack of a curtain/shutter/door to provide privacy when exiting the shower or bath. Also, the main portion of the house is not air conditioned (or it just wasn't turned on). Overall, we had a wonderful stay at this beautiful villa, and were well taken care of by Carlos, Vanessa and the owner (before we arrived). We would definitely stay again and would highly recommend it.

Carlos and Vanessa are so welcoming and lovely. They take care of all your needs, cooking, cleaning and shopping. Carlos is an excellent cook. Great service.

Great location with a Short walk to town and the beach. However you can literally relax in the villa without leaving, Carlos and Vanessa will take care of everything.

I highly recommend villa rosa.
