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!

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.
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!
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.
When we arrived on Wednesday afternoon, our group of 9 was greeted by four villa attendants and freshly made frozen margaritas! Every morning Juan (houseman) and Luis (chef) made us delicious breakfasts of our choice. Throughout the day, Juan served us drinks and by nightfall we were enjoying deliciously prepared dinners. The Luxury Retreats concierge team (shout out to James!) was AWESOME in organizing everything for me before we arrived. Literally anything you want is at your fingerprints with the attendants at the villa. It was a best trip ever.
It was fabulous starting with Jane.. I must have emailed her 50 times .. I am super organized and so is she and we had a lot to work out and work out it DID !!! She was thoughtful, competent, funny, accommodating...
We had the most incredible time. We went to Mexico to celebrate my bachelorette party and it could not have been more perfect. The house and the staff made the trip very special.
