About Gabriela

We live in Los Angeles and get down to P.V as much as possible. We can't get enough of that view.

Gabriela purchased this house in 2007

Why Gabriela chose Puerto Vallarta

We fell in love with Puerto Vallarta on our first trip in 2006. We decided to buy a house a few months later and spotted the For Sale sign for Villa Delfin on a palm tree when we were passing in a boat. We love this place and get here as much as we can. We also like other people to share our wonderful experiences being at the Villa.

What makes this house unique

The most relaxing place. Many hours can be spent on the 300sq ft terrace watching nature, dipping in the solar heated pool and sipping wonderful Margaritas prepared by our staff with home made chips and guacamole. We are on a cliff overlooking the Banderas Bay , 180 degrees of unobstructed blue ocean and the most amazing and romantic sunsets.

The staff was incredible and I could go on and on about what and an a amazing stay we had but then everyone would want to rent this hidden gem and the we would probably have a hard time renting it a again because I'm sure once people for out of about how amazing it was it would be booked solid all the time !!!

I can't enough good things about the staff and Gabriela was so pleasant to corespondent with If I could give this place a 10 star ⭐️ I would give it a 20 thank you everyone for such a wonderful time I'm pv we will definitely be back again!!

Upon arrival at Villa Delfin we were greeted by Carmella, the property resident. She welcomed our group of four with a tour of the house and amazing views from the main first floor. This place is absolute a secret gem with fabulous views from every balcony in the house. The house is very clean and bedrooms are very accommodating with adjoining bathrooms. Every morning we had a delicious breakfast ensemble prepared for us by Carmella. She always seemed to amaze us with her cooking not to mention her dinner menu's. We had guacamole and tortilla chips every day with some type of alcoholic beverage such as her famous margaritas, pina-coladas, and freshly made sangria's. If there was anything you needed she was ready to accommodate your every desire. Kuddos to her and her helpers they were top-notch. This truly was an unforgettable trip of a life time. One default of this trip was not having a strong WIFI signal other than that the location, house, and Carmella were out of this world. If you decide to travel to PV it is very reasonable to call a cab instead of riding the bus with NO A/C. Some pointers if you are going to PV for a family vacation. If you decide to go snorkeling please ask Carmella to ask her son Juan Carlos to give you a price for a trip to Los Arcos as he owns a boat and can take you on a private tour. If you decide to do a tour from the tourist area make sure you tell them you want a VIP trip such as a catamaran, because if not you will be going on a snorkeling trip with 350+ people! We definitely learned this on this trip as we started this excursion and asked to leave this larger boat to a catamaran. If you are going to stay here for a long period definitely exchange your US dollars into Pesos. We actually saved lots of money because we used Pesos. Oh on this same note Do Not Exchange your US Dollars at the airport!! The exchange rate was at about 17 pesos to a dollar, but the airport gave us about 15 pesos to a dollar. We lost about $1000 when we converted our money. There are plenty of banks at PV that can do the exchange for you as long as you have your passport. You can also do the ATM machine with no passport. For instance, I exchanged $5000 pesos for $262.00 US Dollars at a local ATM machine so the bottom line is do not convert at the airport. Once again I can't stop thanking Carmella for everything she provided us on this trip. She truly was a blessing to us and will stay in touch in the future.

Stunning views and service

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic house with incredible ocean views. It was very comfortable for our family of 6 people. Carmela spoiled us with her delicious breakfasts and dinners and she kept the place spotless. The set-up of the house worked well for us, but it might not work well for families with small children. The entrance level of the house is actually the top floor, with the master bedroom suite. You walk down a flight of stairs to the open air living/dining/terrace level, and then down another flight of stairs to the bottom level with 2 more bedrooms. These 2 bedrooms are therefore pretty far away from the master bedroom on the top level (this was great for us!).

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in a beautiful location. Carmela was an amazing host and we had a great time with her son, Carlos, out on the water snorkeling & sight seeing. There is plenty to do in and around Mismaloya... so much that we only went into Puerto Vallarta itself for one evening. This was an overall great experience!

Just the best

  • 5 of 5

I can't remember how many times we have stayed here now, I've lost track. The location is just perfect, a quick bus ride into town, a quick bus ride to Boca. All the rooms are ensuite, and so very comfortable. Carmela takes amazing care of you, this time round she had Giovanna helping her too. The food, Carmelas margaritas, the view, the house (with wifi and a great DVD selection), you are at home and can completely unwind. Schedule a massage on the deck with Mercedes, you won't be disappointed. Now need to plan a return trip! Thank you for letting us stay at your villa.

A wonderful Family Trip to PV

  • 5 of 5

This was the first trip we have been to Puerto Vallarta. It could not have been more wonderful. The house was as nice as the photos showed. The view was tremendous. Sitting on the patio in the morning with a cup of coffee or watching the sunset with a perfect margarita could be the best way to start and finish a beautiful day. Carmela, who took care of all the cooking and house could not have been more perfect. She was so pleasant and anticipated ours needs before we thought of them. Her cooking was the best we have had. I can't think of anything that was overlooked or went wrong. We will definitely return. A beautiful place to spend time with family and friends and just relax.

Vila Delfin is situated on a cliff overlooking Banderas Bay. Nature in the area is spectacular. We have been lucky enough to see dolphins, manta rays, sea turtles, cangrejos (land crabs), humpback whales and a huge variety of birds, all from the terrace. Mismaloya Beach is only a 5-10 minute walk away. Los Arcos the islands close offshore are a marine reserve and provide great snorkelling. Carmella's son Juan Carlos has a boat and does boat trips.
