About the property

6 Bedrooms, 6.0 Bathrooms, 12 Sleeps

Casa Galeana is a contemporary luxury villa that fuses organic and Mexican details. Located hillside, a short walk to beach and the Malecon boardwalk, you will be perfectly poised for the ultimate tropical holiday. Set at the top of a hill, and at end of a cul-de-sac, this bijou villa offers magnificent views, yet remains very private and offers easy access to the beach and the bustle of downtown.

A special design of famed architect Alberto Alvarez, this luxury villa has a spectacular top level with open entertainment, living and dining areas, all under a giant palapa lined with bamboo. This spectacular space opens onto a spacious terrace with a heated infinity pool, a barbeque, an outdoor kitchen and breathtaking 180 degree views of town and the Bay of Banderas. Alfresco dining is a great experience as you take in the vistas. Indoors at Casa Galeana, you will find a media room, DVD player, satellite TV, a sound system with iPod dock and a wet bar. An elevator, Wi-Fi access and purified water are provided for your convenience. Your reservation includes a chef service for two meals a day and housekeeping.

Luxurious details from marble floors to granite countertops and GE Monogram appliances create a truly contemporary getaway with all the splendor of the tropics. The interior palapa-style high ceiling creates a lovely overtone above the comfortable living area and contemporary dining set with a giant glass top. Tasteful and whimsical artworks create a truly unique atmosphere at Casa Galeana.

The villa accommodates up to fourteen guests, and children are welcome. The two master suites feature en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning, TVs and access to a shared terrace with breathtaking views. Of the other four bedrooms, three offer a spectacular shared terrace overlooking the town and ocean, and the final bedroom provides a private terrace and partial sea views.

During the winter and early spring seasons, the bay is visited by whales, dolphins and other intriguing sea creatures. Every day, the aerial dance of pelicans gliding along the tips of the ocean waves never ceases to amaze. Whether for golf or water sports, shopping or nightlife, there is something for everyone under the therapeutic Riviera sun. As the days wind down, recline with your favorite cocktail at Casa Galeana and enjoy the magical sunsets!

The house and staff...

  • 5 of 5

The house and staff exceeded my expectations. The staff was polite, helpful, professional and very friendly. We had a group of 11 and we didn't have any complaints about our house or staff. Our chef cooked amazing meals and Lucy our manager is super sweet and on it! The house is very clean with amazing views and every bedroom was spacious.

Casa Galeana - Awesome Stay

  • 5 of 5

The house and services were more than I expected. Everyone who stayed at this house enjoyed every bit of it. The house was clean and the staff were very professional and courteous. The chef cooked the most amazing meals. We will definitely stay here again if we visit PV. The only caveat to the house is the steep hill, but we all believe it was well worth it because it was situated in an area with many bars and restaurants. The view of the rooftop deck was amazing.

This place is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Galeana is incredible. The house is huge with a perfect view of the ocean and city. 5 out of 6 rooms are pretty much master bedrooms with bathrooms. Spend most of our time on the pool deck and in the pool. The staff was top notch. Luis the chef was the star of the house. He had a different breakfast for us each morning. He also made it easy by shopping for us each day and creating an incredible spread each night. Overall this place is a must for bigger parties. The only downside is the hill leading up to the house. Most taxis wouldn't/couldn't get up it and so we had to walk down a bit.

Mehren and Company luxury retreat.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely fantastic! Everything was very clean and well-kept. The views and amenities were second to none. The bar was fantastic! The pool and sauna were always kept clean and nice. The kitchen and available utensils were everything you could need and more.

Absolutely no disappointments. It even had an elevator! Jessica, our villa specialist did warn us about the steep hill The Villa is located on several times. She wasn't kidding. Some of the taxis had a challenge making it to the top of the hill. But, the walk up the hill was not a problem for us every once in a while. In fact, after the fantastic meals the staff provided it was probably good for us!

It was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, clean, and very accommodating. The staff was absolutely great and the food was excellent. Lucy was very helpful in assisting with other activities as well as managing our expenses for the house. Iliana was the best maid ever, friendly and kept everything spotless. Overall we had a wonderful experience at the Casa

Galleana. The only thing we didn't like was the hill, but you can't have everything. Oh and we did have a leak in one of the bedroom ceilings, but nothing got wet but the floor.
