About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This beautiful Villa located within the exclusive Marina Golf complex is just a short walk away from the ocean and only half a block from the busy Marina full of restaurants and shops. The extremely spacious 1500 sq ft. well appointed 2 story Villa has beautiful tranquil views over the first fairway and is neighbours with the luxury boutique hotel 'Casa Velas'. The large free form pool has uninterrupted views over the golf course, with plenty of shade and beautifully manicured gardens. Access to the beach is possible through the resort hotels close by such as the Marriott (400yards) or beach clubs such as Arecifes at the Westin. Some resorts charge a fee or require that you purchase something from their restaurant or bar to gain access. Alternatively, public access to the beach is at Boca Negra street on the far side of the golf course (approx 1200yards). Many more beaches are within easy reach by public transport or taxi such as Nuevo Vallarta or Playa de Los Muertos in town. If you hire a car you can find pristine deserted beaches within a short drive north in the state of Nayarit - small coastal towns such as Sayulita, San Pancho or Punta Raza. To the south, tiny fishing villages with paradise beaches such as Yelapa and Quimixto can be reached only by boat. Water taxis leave from the marina or Boca de Tomatlan.

The busy marina with over 300 yachts and cruisers is just 100 yards walk away from the villa and is full of excellent restaurants, bars and shops. A large commercial shopping area is also within walking distance with supermarket, banks and other amenities.

The Villa boasts beautiful interiors with some wonderful original art, vaulted ceilings and fine furnishings. The ground floor has a spacious living area which opens out directly on to the golf course with spectacular sunset views. There is also a small but fully equipped kitchen, a dining area for 6, kitchen bar, downstairs toilette and silent mini spilt air conditioning.

Upstairs has two very spacious and luminous en-suite bedrooms with vaulted ceilings. Both bedrooms have King size beds, plenty of closet space, bathrooms with shower, silent mini split air-con and wonderful views over the golf course. There is also an upstairs covered terrace which also enjoys spectacular views and is ideal for sipping a margarita while watching the sunset. The unique location of Villa Te Quiero, on Calle Pelicanos, ensures peace and quiet while being just steps away from everything. Pelicanos street is regarded as the most desirable real estate in Vallarta with multi million dollar neighbouring homes such as Hacienda Los Santos, Casa Los Wikis and the ultra exclusive Casa Velas Hotel.

About Paul Fitzpatrick

Paul and Lorena are originally from the UK and Argentina respectively. They fell in love with Puerto Vallarta in 1997 and made Villa te Quiero their home in 2004 after many years of searching for the perfect location that combines the best of PV with tranquility, luxury and convenience. Both are professionals in tourism and have travelled the world extensively. They understand the small details that can turn a vacation rental into a real luxury for their guests and have made sure that nothing is missing for those who saty at Villa te Quiero. Their inside knowledge, contacts and frineds in PV will also help make your stay here all that more enjoyable.

Paul Fitzpatrick purchased this villa in 2004

Why Paul Fitzpatrick chose Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta is an amazing place. Ask anyone of the locals if they would live anywhere else in the world and they will tell you that there is no need - PV is paradise! And that's exactly how we have always felt about the place. We rented in PV for 5 years before making a decision on where to buy and Marina Vallarta stands out clearly as the best place to vacation and live in PV. Marina Vallarta is a community of high end properties, 5* hotels and fantastic facilities, all with it's own police force, army of gardeners and cleaners to keep it immaculate and safe, the comunity has golf, beach and marina all at your doorstep and our villa is located right in the heart of it on the first fairway of the golf course. Everything you need is within walking distance yet our villa is set in an oasis of calm and tranquility. Downtown PV with it's historical center and bouncing nightlife is just a 5 minute taxi ride away. Vallarta and its surounds has wonderful beaches, mountains, jungle, wildlife, a beautiful and historical town, incredibly friendly people and there are hundreds of hidden treasures that you discover each and every time to venture out. Take a boat ride along the southern shore to fishing villages with pristine beaches that are only accessible by water or drive up into the Sierra Madre to colonial towns such as San Sebastian which seem to be caught in a time warp. The town itself is full of world class restaurants, great shops and the wonderful Malecon, not to mention the 'out of this world' sunsets.

What makes this villa unique

Everyone who stays at Villa te Quiero will receive special rates and discounts on Vallarta Adventure tours with up to 20% off Swimming with Dolphins, Canopy Tours, Scuba and more. Great tips on where to eat, what to do and how to explore the bay and it's surroundings. The Villa is incredibly tranquil and relaxing. There is no street noise from traffic or restaurants and yet everything is at your doorstep. You will really feel at home in this wonderful setting and can enjoy the fantastic pool and watch incredible sunsets from the terrace or right from your sitting room. The Villa Complex includes 24 hr security, gardener, pool man, and cleaning service.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were really happy with our stay at the villa. The location was wonderful, in the heart of the beautiful Marina Vallarta golf course. It was very tranquil and set in lush tropical gardens. The pool was fantastic and just steps from the villa. Great staff at the condo who were all so very nice and helped out with lots of small things like getting us bottled water supplies and even helping with the groceries! Would love to come back again.

Awesome vacation at Marina Vallarta.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed during christmas and new years and this was the ideal location. The house was clean and very quiet; most days we had the whole pool area to ourselves. The staff and neighbours were very friendly and made us feel welcome. The grocery stores, restaurants and marina are all a short walk and the area is extremely safe so walking at any time during day and night is not an issue. The taxi stand as well as the bus stop are also around the corner. We have stayed in Puerto Vallarta many many times and the Marina is a great location if you want the quietness but are also close to everything! We would highly recommend this property! Thank you all for making our stay so awesome!

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

Grounds personnel were wonderful. Home & grounds were very clean. Great location close to everything but quiet too. Maintenance quickly resolved a small issue w/a/c and electricity temporarily going out before the house got too warm.

Advice: Look in all the drawers & cupboards before going shopping. We didn't, and only discovered double supply of seasonings, plastic wraps & containers as well as extra veggie sanitizer & dish soap etc under the sink as we were putting away our just purchased supplies & groceries that first day. Only complaint would be that we couldn't get the TV to work or change channels other than turning on to Netflix home screen... however, that could have been "user error", lol. And we aren't big TV people anyway so we read & played w/ournew grandbaby instead.

Pleasantly surprised

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we stayed outside of an all-inclusive resort, I was apprehensive but our stay at the villa was great! The complex was quiet and relaxing, especially by the pool. The employees/grounds staff were visible, friendly and helpful as well. The condo itself was clean, modern, and tastefully decorated. I would describe it as inviting and comfortable. The unit backed the golf course yet did not seem intrusive when people were on the course, in fact, a bit entertaining.

The location was a very close walking distance to the Marina. Far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet, yet close enough to enjoy all the amenities the Marina had to offer. It was also a very close walking distance to a large grocery store, professional services, like dentists and of course, close to a little part of home as one of our party was able to enjoy McDonalds!

The owner was quick to respond to all our requests and answered all of our questions. His answers were informative and he even provided tips on how to obtain a cheaper taxi from the airport!

Winter Paradise in Vallarta

  • 5 of 5

We spent a really enjoyable 3 weeks in December including Christmas at Pauls villa in Marina Vallarta. Everything was handled extremely smoothly including the correspondence with Paul and confirmation and payment. We had to change flights dates last minute but this was no problem and Paul adjusted everything without any qualms. He is definitely a very straight forward and an honest kind of guy to do business with. It was refreshing to hear that their main concern was that our vacations went as smoothly as possible. The villa manager, Mayra was there at the house to receive us and show us how to connect to the free wifi and explain how to get around. She was extremely nice and spoke very good English which was a great help as our Spanish is quite basic. We had to call her a couple of times to figure some simple things out such as how to switch on the fancy halogen hob and where to get a refill for the mineral water tank and she was always extremely helpful and courteous. She even came round a couple of times during our stay to make sure we were ok as it turns out she works just a couple of blocks away in the marina. The villa was wonderful / and exactly as it is described on the vrbo site. We enjoyed most days by the pool and did go to the beach a couple of times - once to the Marriot where we paid fro lunch and drinks and another time to the city beach at Los Muertos which was great for people watching. The best beaches were on the tours, especially Las Caletas and the canopy tour we took which Mayra recommended was a real blast! The evenings were wonderfully warm and its an easy stroll to the pretty marina with great restaurants. It was easy to get around by taxi and bus. The bus to town and to the cruise terminal for the tours stopped at the end of the road and cost around $0.20usd - a great experience and very practical. I would definitely recommend the villa, it was of much better quality that many of the condos around the water front. The gardens were impeccable, the local staff very friendly and everything super relaxing and quiet. We hope to come back soon!!!!!!

Wonderful villa, great location.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing 3 week stay at Paul & Lorena's home in March and it was everything that the description and website promised: quiet, peaceful, very friendly staff, incredible views from every room, large bedrooms with very comfortable beds, brand new kitchen, AMAZING pool with gardens and within walking distance of everythingthing. The marina waterfront restaurants were wonderful in the evening and although we could walk to the beach quite easily we spent most of our sunbathing time by the pool as it was so nice.

The photos on the web are accurate of what the villa and the condo is like - well maintained, lush green gardens, no one at the pool. What you don't see on the website are the fantastic sunsets.

Paul, the owner, was very helpful and professional confirming our reservation and flexible with the payment. Mayra, who received us at the Villa, was really helpful showing us how everything worked and checked in on us to make sure al was ok. The staff at the condo were really nice and friendly.

We would definitely recommend Villa te Quiero to anyone looking for a comfortable place to stay in Vallarta. We are retired and truly appreciated the peace and quiet, the spaciousness of the unit and the friendliness of everyone including our neighbours.

Our tips: walk to the supermarket (la comercial) and taxi back with your shopping. Mr Cream for a hearty breakfast in the marina. Terraza di Roma for waterfront pizza in the marina. If you want to try golf but don't want to pay for a full round go to the driving range and for $10usd they lend you clubs and you can hit as many balls as you like for an hour and then spend 30 mins on the putting green. For a special treat, go for dinner at Cafe des Artistes in town and best of all: Rhythms of the Night dinner & show.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the comments Joan, Im glad you enjoyed your stay and that everything was peaceful and quiet as you had hoped. Another tip for the golf, for those who play regularly, is that there are good discounts if you book more than one round of golf.
