Romantic Zone Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 6 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths, AMAZING CHEF, PRIVATE BEACH

This villa is owned by Mrs. Fields (ie. World-Famous Mrs. Fields Cookies). Beto, the Chef, has even perfected the famous recipe.....

Villa Ventura is Oceanfront with direct access to a beautiful secluded white sandy beach. In fact, VILLA VENTURA (and just 5 other houses) sit on arguably the only true private white sand beach in Puerto Vallarta and comes fully staffed with Chef, Maid Service, Houseman and Gardener

The villa is well designed and can be rented for just the size you want: starting with just four bedrooms. It can be expanded to larger packages that can include an extra Master Bedroom Suite and sitting room, and Queen bedroom on its own separate level. Our Villa can also accommodate large families or groups and makes an ideal Mexico vacation package. The interior is over 6000 sq. ft., with an additional 2000 sq. ft. of terraces, patios and a heated pool overlooking the ocean.

The main level features a spacious living room with a fireplace, a dining room, a deck overlooking the sea, and a fully-equipped kitchen with a 22-foot vaulted brick ceiling. There is a large bedroom with a fireplace on this level.

There is a fountain courtyard with bedrooms off the courtyard, a cozy bedroom with twin beds, and two large and comfortable master suites, one suite has a king bed and the other, two queen beds. On this level is the pool, sundeck and a palapa-roofed bar.

There is an additional Master Suite and another bedroom on the lowest level.

Stone steps lead directly to your own private beach. Most of our guests have a hard time leaving the serenity of our Villa yet...

Villa Ventura is only 4 kilometers south of the bustling town center. No need to rent a car as plentiful and affordable taxis can be hailed easily, called or we can make arrangements for your own personal driver to be available during your stay.

About Linda Sivyer

I have owned my Villa for over 18 years and have been blessed with the most amazing staff that has loved and cared for my family and guests to insure they have a relaxing and unforgettable experience... filled with great food, great fun and lasting memories. In addition to the housing staff, I also have a property manager Claudia Goldman who is exceptional in every way, as well as access to Toni Gonzales who provides Concierge Services. Both Claudia and Toni can set up all your vacation activities and schedule your relaxing massages in the privacy of our villa.

Why Linda Sivyer chose Puerto Vallarta

I fell in love with Puerto Vallarta because I love the friendly people, the Mexican cuisine, the beautiful Sunsets and the sound of the Ocean waves as they put me sound to sleep at night.

What makes this villa unique

What is truly exceptional about my Villa is the privacy. If you want a relaxing vacation, love the music of the Ocean as the waves ebb and flow, love access to a secluded white sandy beach that are steps away... without fighting crowds and you just wish to be 'nurtured' by our staff and indulge in relaxation. This is the place for you, your friends and your family. My team at Villa Ventura works hard to fulfill the wishes of our guests!

Wonderful Beyond our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Not only is Villa Ventura one of the most spectacularly beautiful places I've ever been, but the compassion and helpfulness of the staff throughout all aspects of the booking process was completely extraordinary.

I booked our stay at Villa Ventura for my sister's bachelorette party, a big group of ladies who wanted some beach relaxation, delicious food and drinks, and a little bit of adventure -- Villa Ventura did NOT disappoint! The pictures on this listing are totally accurate; in fact, they don't quite do the property justice. There are 6 bedrooms, all beautifully decorated, colorful, and pristinely clean, all with their own bathrooms, and (almost) all with breathtaking views of the pool deck or private beach.

There was never a moment during our stay at the villa when we didn't feel pampered, cared for, and absolutely relaxed. The food (as you can see in the other reviews) was incredible -- nothing better than the daily guacamole and margaritas that we were treated to!

When we arrived to the villa, the house staff had purchased a pinata, decorations and bachelorette specific photo props, party hats, and other items to make my sister feel special -- without having to be asked to do so! I was astounded by the attention to detail and personal care that we felt while we were there. I had never stayed at a property with staff before, and was amazed by the ease of the process to request and pay for groceries, meals, and gratuities for the staff.

Above all -- I was just so impressed by the compassion and helpfulness of the villa staff; before, during, and after our stay. They made the entire process so easy, and were constantly helpful throughout, always willing to be on call for any questions or concerns, no matter how odd. Originally, we thought we were going to have 14 girls with us, and I had sent out cost estimates to all of the attendees before tentatively confirming with Linda (the US manager of the property). Soon after, there were a few women who dropped out, and we ended up with only 11. I emailed Linda to let her know that we didn't think we would be able to afford the stay anymore with fewer attendees, and instead of trying to convince us to pay more, Linda decreased the cost of the property for us, just enough so that we could still afford to stay there with the smaller group. I will be eternally grateful to her for this accommodation, since she made it possible for me to throw my sister the party she deserved! THANK YOU!

Villa Ventura

  • 3 of 5

Villa Ventura is a beautiful home with a great location on the beach. However, it isn't for people with some disability like arthritis, etc...It has a provision for an elevator but I guess the owner opted to not put it is. Hence it was very difficult for to get around and even to get out of the house for excursions. The Staff was great! The Concierge (Claudia and Toni) were NOT very accessible and seemed too busy to even take our calls! The phone line is disconnected and we had NO internet except on our last day when we finally, after repeated calls and requests, raised cane! We felt disconnected and displaced!

I hope this helps the owner revisit some of their staffing organization.

Having said all the above, Chef Beto is great! He definitely tried to make up for the other shortcomings.

Thank you for the experience.

Owner's Response: I am devastated. We have NEVER promoted our home as having an elevator because we do not. All of the pictures on our website show that we have 3 levels and stairs. I will look into the matter immediately as to the internet. Whenever we do have internet issues....WE ACT INSTANTLY! Unfortunately, sometimes the internet goes down, as you may have experienced with your own home or local telephone carrier that is beyond our control. If it is within our control... you can plan on it being our priority that you are nothing short of HAPPY! As to the concierge service, Beto our chef... based on EVERY review ever written has personally made sure that the guests have received what they needed or requested and... my sister, Linda... is always standing by... to ensure happiness. This review has taken us by complete surprise. We wanted nothing more than to make YOU happy and go out of our way to accommodate you and your family. Assisting you every step of the way with special pricing to accommodate your needs. How you would deem to rate us for no elevator when we never said or promoted we had one is simply sad and wrong. We take these reviews so seriously that we are heartbroken. We try so hard to please. In doing further fact checking... We discovered that... Telemex took all telephone and internet lines down to improve service without our knowledge or specific dates. ALL Villas, homes, hotels in our area were affected. You informed us of the lines and internet being down and everyone involved in the happiness trail reacted to help and assist YOU in every way possible. Here is the response chain... along with your response and input... From my sister Linda....The whole system was down ..They were installing new cable etc..I contacted them and gave them satelite connections to see if they could go on line... From Claudia - Management company responding that YOU said never responded... Linda The problem is that TELMEX is changing the fiber optic so there is not services in several lines in the area the damage has been reported everyday and we just got the answer that they are working on it - no finish time has been given to us YOUR RESPONSE Hi Linda, Thanks for the update! We got a code this morning that we are using right now. It's on and off but it will work for now. Thanks for trying to get us set up. Thanks, Stephanie

Perfect Girls Holiday Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Villa Ventura. The house was amazing with an indoor/outdoor vibe. The staff ensured that we did not have to worry about a thing all weekend and Beto put on some delicious breakfast and dinner experiences. Juan took us around the city and waited for us to finish so that we did not have to worry about finding transportation. We also had 2 massage therapists come one morning for everyone to get a massage. We truly could not have asked for a more enjoyable weekend.

I was taken to Villa Ventura as a surprise for my birthday . It was more than I could ever dream of and the best vacation to date!

From the moment we arrived at the Villa, I knew I was in for a treat. We were welcomed by a friendly staff and a freshly blended margarita.

We were instantly amazed by the beautiful open living space, breathtaking views and the sound of the crashing waves.

I couldn’t believe how large and open the Villa was. Every room had plenty of privacy with its own full bathroom and sitting area.

There were so many amenities, including a private pool, ping pong table, music system and private beach, just to name a few.

The Villa was exceptionally kept and well maintained by a Staff who took care of every need. Entire bedding and linen was changed daily & clothes washed every morning.

Chef Beto is one of best reasons to stay here. There is nothing this man can’t do, or cook. All meals, snacks and deserts were top notch – gourmet! Everything he made was delicious and his presentation incredible. He went above and beyond to cater to our every request and handled every detail with a smile. (From booking a zipline tour, massage on site, wave runners delivered to us, etc..) Beto is more than amazing. I wish we could have brought him home with us. It is so hard to put in words how unbelievable the experience at Villa Ventura truly was or to describe the beautiful sunsets or sound of the waves. It was so hard to leave. We are already planning our trip back! If you are looking for a beautiful once in a lifetime escape, Villa Ventura is the place to go.

Absolutely Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We had the most amazing time at the Villa. We all pledged we want to come back next year. The house was mind blowing with amazing views and the different areas for hanging out: 2 verandas with lounge chairs, comfy living room and then the upstairs dining table. We squeezed in 13 for my birthday dinner just fine! Every bedroom in the house was beautiful and had it's own bathroom. Not one of us felt letdown. Our time there was very relaxing but also festive and the staff was fabulous! We enjoyed our meals from Beto and Rosita so much I think we all gained weight. They were also very helpful with our questions. Beto's cooking is just divine. One day my husband caught a skipjack right below the house on the beach. We took it to Chef Beto who made the most delicious ceviche! The pool was a favorite for the kids. My favorite was lounging by the pool with the most incredible view. I just couldn't get enough. None of us wanted to go anywhere else. But we did take the bus (now that was a fun experience) into old town for shopping and it was just a 5 minute ride down the hill. We felt absolutely blessed getting to stay at Villa Ventura and we truly do wish to return soon!

Lovely oceanfront villa

  • 4 of 5

Villa Ventura is every bit as lovely as the photos show. Lots of room to spread out and relax; however, be aware that due to the beautiful open, atrium layout, sound spreads everywhere. The interior windows to the bedrooms do not close, and the louvered doors off the pool deck only give visual privacy, not sound privacy. For a large group, everyone really needs to retire to bed at the same time! Also, a bedroom on the lowest floor had a bad, musty smell, and the AC did not work, so we couldn't use it. But the star of this place is Chef Beto - the food he prepared was absolutely exquisite. Every single meal we dined like royalty. He and the staff took very good care of us, and we felt quite pampered. Beto was the star of our week!

Owner's Response: Thank you for sharing such kind words about our Villa and our magnificent Ventura team! I am so glad that our Villa has three levels to insure privacy and space. My grandson Myles (15 mos old today) sleeps beautifully in the luxuriously quiet upstairs bedroom. I love Villa Ventura for so many reasons, but especially appreciate the sounds of the ocean which comes with a beachfront location. I am not quite sure of the intensity of your crowd, but have never ever had a complaint. So, it sounds like you all had fun... partying into the wee hours of the night (which is your prerogative with your guests) Last but not least, I commend my team for addressing the A/C snag in one bedroom and installing a brand new system in less then 24 hours. WE AIM to PLEASE! I wish all things mechanical would run forever... So please know that we try to go to the moon and back for our guests and we are grateful that you came. Warmest regards from Chef Beto and the entire Villa Ventura Family! Debbi xoxo
