About Brad & Joey

My wife Joey and I spent two years of traveling to Puerta Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit to decide which resort had everything we wanted and that others would truly enjoy. We found it at Villa La Estancia, Nuevo Vallarta, Riviera Nayarit. Since purchasing 3 years ago, we travel to our villa once a month and stay for 5 to 10 nights. We love Villa La Estancia and we are so happy we spent the extra money to purchase the villa closest to the ocean for our enjoyment and yours.

Brad & Joey purchased this villa in 2006

Why Brad & Joey chose Flamingos

We go 1 week per month and love the location and the quality of service that Villa La Estancia offers.

What makes this villa unique

5 star service, food and amenities. Our oceanfront views from every room. Quality furnishings. Unlike other Villas, we provide extras in the pantry. Napkins, salt, pepper, spices, games, videos, books, magazines and an assortment of items left by other guests for future guest's benefit.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

When searching for a place to stay in Puerto Vallarta we stumbled upon La Estancia VRBO options, & glad we chose to book unit 1302. It did not disappoint! Brad and Joey the owners of the villa we chose, contacted us to let us know their unit was actually not available but they had one directly below that was ground floor, would we be interested. We have never stayed on ground level but to our surprise it was perfect for our needs. We simply wanted to relax on the beach or pool side and enjoy reading and conversation with friends. The location of unit 1102 allowed us to have our own beverages and snacks a few yards away from our perch. We stopped on the way from the airport (which by the way is super easy to navigate and SO close to our destination, only a 20 min. cab ride with the stop to pick up beer, water & snacks). Brad and Joey the owners of unit 1302 were so kind sharing their scoop on the area. They emailed us a fact/tip sheet that was so thorough with suggested activities, restaurants, bars, "how-to's" that we were never wasting time figuring out where, when or how during our stay. The villa itself was large with high end furnishings, & 3 full baths. We only used the 2 bedrooms & baths but if you had 6 or 8 staying in the villa, the extra bath in the main room (which typically is only a 1/2 bath in most resorts) would be handy. This property is attached to Flamingos which is an all inclusive resort, so we had access to those amenities as well but found we had everything we needed right at La Estancia. We were only at La Estancia from Friday morning until Monday morning so we chose not to make any meals in our villa. Thus we needed to find coffee and small bites for breakfast and lunch on site. We visited the cafe/market on Flamingos property each morning and ordered food beachside for lunch each day. Both were affordable and had many delicious options available. The guacamole is a are in Mexico after all :) The town of Bucerias had a 10 day Fiesta going on while we were there so that was a fun thing to wander around after the dinners we ate in town. Throughout our trip we felt safe and comfortable. This truly was an amazing short getaway!!! If you are searching for a reboot to your daily routine, hang here for a long weekend and you won't regret it. Thanks Joey and Brad for sharing your villa & your "cheat sheet", we would love to be back soon!

LaEstancia resort is very well run. Great pool bar and room service food and drink options, at very reasonable prices. Very nice pool and hot tubs, right outside your room, and right on the beach! Relaxed atmosphere with some small kids and teenagers. Party atmosphere is next door/down the beach. 10 minute/$5 US cab ride to Bucerias for shopping and nice dinner options.

Welcoming and beautiful place.

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing vacation staying at Villa La Estancia in #1302. Brad and Joey are great at communicating and following up, and sharing their favorite things to do. The tide was out and we walked for miles. The food was great and the waiters really nice. We felt safe and well cared for. The sunsets were spectacular. Can't wait to go back!!!

Beautiful Villa, Great Resort

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our two young children and although we did not plan any activities, we had a wonderful stay just hanging out in the villa and hopping down to the pool and beach at our convenience. The staff was helpful and friendly and the spaciousness of the villa made us feel right at home. Our favorite pastime while we were there was watching the sunsets and the thunderstorms over the ocean from the deck. Thanks for a great stay!

Villa 1302 at Estancia Is Top Notch

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from renting Brad and Joeys villa at Estancia in Nuevo Vallarta. Villa Estancia is a five star resort, simply lovely, amazing service, beyond clean and safe, and a true world class resort. Brad and Joey's specific villa is extremely comfortable, beautiful and well kept. Location at Estancia is key. Their villa provides an amazing view of the pool and ocean, but as important, it offers quick access to everywhere ( certainly not the case with many villas.). You can choose to stay on property or venture out to the charming town of Bucerias. As owners, Brad and Joey are very responsive, extremely helpful and friendly. We have been to Mexico many times, but this was our first visit to this region; they made everything easy and answered questions immediately. Thank you for an amazing vacation.
