I am a business owner from El Paso, Texas where I operate a clothing manufacturing company. I love to travel, particularly in Mexico.
Jose Alfonso Font purchased this villa in 1990
Like most that visit this area, I fell in love with the exotic coastline, jungles, the city of Puerto Vallarta and local culture..
I invested in this property for personal use and eventually decided to share with others through rental when I was not enjoying my stays there.
I enjoy everything from relaxing around the pool, BBQ'ing fresh local fish to discovering the great local restaurants in the area. Many days we grab a local boat taxi at Mismaloya for days in the secluded villages of Las Animas and Yelapa as well as fishing the waters of the Bay.
We arrived New Years Day with family and friends, Rogelio picked us up from the airport in the Suburban, Fide and Yolanda prepared the best guacamole and taquitos within 30 minutes of our arrival. Jose the owner called prior to arrange our airport pickup and gave full details of the house and amenities. Jose also called during our stay to ensure everything was good and to see if we had any questions. As every other review mentions, Fide is an amazing cook. Everyday we tried something different of Fide's cooking, fresh local fish, ribs, shrimp, fried bananas, Fide suggested, we ate it, cannot say enough about her cooking. We ate breakfast and dinner at the house daily, we were usually at the beach for lunch. The local beaches of Mismaloya have great local seafood. We also travelled with our twin one year old daughters and three year old son, Fide prepared the kids meals before the adults. The staff was great with our children, Fide always cut fresh fruit for the kids to enjoy.
The house is beautiful, every room is on a different floor with their own unique charm. There is also an extra sleeping area in the upstairs living room, our teenager loved it there and her own bathroom. The house is in the jungle behind a secure gated entrance, beautiful cobblestone streets and well maintained. Our little ones really enjoyed the kid pool while the teenagers liked the deeper pool. Rogelio does a real great job of maintaing the house, all the amenities work well and tropical plants are quite a sight. After dinner we usually ventured down to comfortable furniture by the pool to have a few drinks and enjoy the view. Our twins were just learning to walk, but since we go wherever they go the stairs did not pose much of a challenge, they mostly stayed in the dining room area, upstairs living room and the upstairs bedroom. We also enjoyed the local attractions, we did zip lining 3 miles into the jungle from the house (Rogelio drove us there, we walked back), the local zoo is ten minutes away walking and a Tequila distillery is right next to the zoo. Great stay and cannot wait to visit again.
From start to finish Jose and the staff are truly amazing people. Jose the owner is very communicative and is very fast at returning calls & emails. The house is just amazing. The location is awesome just about 25 minutes South of PV in Mismaloya. The house staff Roglio & Fida are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet. Fida is an amazing cook! She cooked 4 dinners for our family of 8 during our 5 day trip. Fida also made breakfast and had coffee ready every morning. Drinking coffee and the amazing views on the upper terrace can't be beat!!! Rogelio was our driver as the house comes with a large SUV to be shuttled around in (make sure to fill it up before you leave).
Couple things to pay attention to. Playa Mismaloya which is at the bottom of the hill. The beach is infested with sand fleas, you can read Trip Advisor for more information. My family was severely bitten by these nasty little bugs. No sand fleas at the Villa I'd like to mention. Can't drink the water at the Villa!!! Be very careful about this. Brush teeth with bottled water. If there is room in the SUV go to Costco before you arrive at the Villa, this will save time. Don't worry if you forget anything on your list, there's a few little stores at the bottom on the hill that Rogelio can run down and grab for you. Also, the staff has very limited English, which isn't a problem, we used Google Translate quit a bit to communicate. The Villa does have WiFi.
I would 1000% recommend this Villa!!!! Hope you enjoy!
My extended family stayed for the week of New Year's (6 adults, 4 children). The house itself was beautiful, had lovely views, and was just as pictured. The staff was wonderful! They made us feel welcome, prepared great food, and had good recommendations on activities. They were great with our kids, who loved getting to practice their Spanish with them.
The house is better suited for adults and older children. There are lots of stairs, and you have to go outdoors to get to three of the five bedrooms. There is music at a near-by resort every night that sometimes goes pretty late. Also, the nearest beach is very crowded in the afternoon. I would recommend going in the morning and planning to leave by 1 or 2 pm. The nearby zoo was great: interactive and very fun for kids. We would love to come back, our children miss Fida and Rogelio!
I stayed with my extended family at this villa for 5 nights right before Christmas. The place is very nice and staff is helpful and accommodating. I would stay there again.
I have stayed at this property on a number of occasions. The facility, staff and view are all magnificent. Great location near restaurants and the beach. Great for large or extended family and friends. A real bargain for all the property has to offer. Will stay again in the near future and would and have recommended the property to friends.
I have recently stayed at this luxurious house with my family. Every morning we were greeted by the kind staff with some breakfast on the terrace with an amazing view of the beach. The service by the staff was amazing. I highly recommend this Villa to anyone in search of a great vacation!
