About the property

Enjoy our new walkout area right on the water while lounging in comfort

The spectacular 8000 sq ft villa was designed for pure pleasure and comfort. The focal point and highlight of our Puerto Vallarta villa is the circular palapa-covered living room with its 180 degree panoramic vista of the sea and Los Arcos, the offshore trio of massive boulders that jut from the sea to form Puerto Vallarta’s best known landmark. Our Puerto Vallarta villa’s spacious living room, its adjacent open dining area, and an ocean side gathering and entertainment terrace with its own palapa overlook a jacuzzi and fifty-foot long “infinity” pool, strategically situated to create an illusion of ocean and pool blending into a spectacular vista of gently crashing surf and offshore rock formations.

Luxurious white marble floors are outlined with traditional pebble designs and hand-set in concrete by native artisans who used more than 100,000 tiny stones to complete their mosaic. Windows, wherever used, are situated for a single purpose, to emphasize the spectacular vistas offered from every vantage point. The four + one additional bedrooms, outside palapa-roofed entertainment area, TV room and breakfast area, and modern American-style kitchen are all situated to overlook the Pacific, Los Arcos, and stunning oceanside cliffs.

The peak of the soaring palapa is 35 feet above the living room floor and its thatched palm roof is of a weather proof design with a hidden concrete liming designed to cool the interior and reduce maintenance. The peaked interior of the palapa dominates the living area, its angular ceiling lined with over 3,000 bamboo reeds harvested from nearby jungle hillsides and individually nailed in place by native workers.

The Puerto Vallarta villa's entertainment terrace is shaded by its own palapa and overlooks a jacuzzi and fifty-foot long “infinity” pool. This spectacular, private outdoor setting creates an illusion of ocean and pool blending into a breath taking vista of gently crashing surf and offshore rock formations.

Below the terrace, take a dip in the ocean and enjoy service from our sea side bar.

Our Puerto Vallarta villa features a gourmet chef, butler, housekeeper and a caretaker who will greet you with smiles as warm as the Mexican sunshine. Two of our servants live in separate quarters on the Casa grounds. When you make your reservations, we ask you to provide us with information about the kinds of food and beverage you prefer. The foods of your choice will be purchased by our staff fresh in local markets and prepared to your specifications. The staff works 7 days a week and will prepare 3 meals a day for you during your stay! You are responsible for the cost of food, drinks, and tipping of the staff.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What an amazing place! It was a true joy and pleasure to stay here. I could have not asked for a better setting to spend my 40th Birthday! The house itself was wonderful but Alejandro, Edwardo and Noami are what make it truly exceptional. I would love to stay here forever. I really did not leave the house for 8 days…and had no real reason to. Everything plus more was here…or they would get it for me! I am in love! Oh…the massage…Nomi & Lidda came to do massages and pedicures one day, and I loved it so I had Nomi come back 6 more times. Dream come true being rubbed outside by the ocean for 6 days. A little slice of heave right here. Thank you.

Amazing - Exceeded all Expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

Based on the photos and reviews we had very high expectations for this vacation, and Casa San Sebastian did not disappoint. The home is absolutely stunning. All 4 master suites are large and well-appointed with amazing bathrooms. We enjoyed both the poolside dining table under the palapa as well as the rooftop dining table (great for breakfast when sun is coming up over the mountains!). The infinity pool is amazing - just the right temperature - with plenty of comfortable lounge chairs and umbrellas for shade. The grounds are also beautiful with lush flowers (people were there every morning maintaining all the plants, sweeping leaves, cleaning the pool, etc),

As beautiful as the house is, the service was equally amazing. Allejandro was the perfect host. He was quick to refill our drinks, set a beautiful table with meals served on our requested schedule, and helped arrange transportation. He was always there, but completely unobtrusive.

Eduardo's meals were absolutely delicious. Whatever we requested he was able to make in abundance from fresh homemade salsas for our fajitas, tacos and chilaquiles, to juicy ripe fruit and fresh-squeezed orange juice with breakfast. The turndown service and housekeeping (with laundry) made it feel like a 5-star resort. And we felt very secure with the overnight guard on the property.

All day every day my friends and I kept raving about this unforgettable vacation. We hope to return to Casa San Sebastian!!

Eduardo the Cheff can cook anything you ask for, and with a Mariachi band dinner is even more fun !!!!! .... Alejandro your personal assistant will make sure your day is perfect, Noemia the hosuekeeper will make sure the house and your bedroom are impeccable, Don Max the security night guy will make you feel safe. Thank you to all the staff, Michelle and Angeles for making our trip amazing. We highly recommend this property, we cannot wait to go back. Hasta pronto Casa San Sebastián !!!!!!'

Immaculate property! Better than the pictures! We are foodies and the meals were exquisite even though we had dietary restrictions the meals were very thoughtfully planned out. The staff was amazing always at the ready when we needed them but seemed to disappear when we didn't. There was plenty of room for the 10 of us to spread out. I hope we can come back!

The property itself was beautiful but not the overall experience.

  • 1 of 5

If my review was based off the looks of the property would be happy to give 5 stars. However the experience itself was bad. During our stay we were only able to enjoy the property during the day, as of night fall the crabs and lizards take over the property. The staff response was it's nothing they could do about it the owner even quoted in email "Well you are in Mexico, if you have never been now you know". I'm happy we did not have small children with us but a couple guest suffered panic attacks as they were terrified. My issue is not just the crabs but the fact they were aware of issue and did not give me opportunity to decide if crabs entering the home by the dozen was a deal breaker for me. As many of my guest have been to Mexico and have never had a problem where they stayed with crabs. If it was only lizards I could be more understanding. I sent email to owner during stay she never responded not until trip was over and she asked why we tipped the staff so low (yes she emailed that) did she address the crab issue. She states she told her property manager to reach out to us well that didn't happen and Michelle the owner now states she is getting a different story from her manager. If Michelle would have emailed us back like all the other times before she would only have one story to go off of. Please before booking also be aware Michelle the owner expects you to tip her staff 15.00 per guest per day meaning for my 5 day 4 night trip for 6 people we were expected to tip over $1200.00 to the 3 staffs on duty who were not there 24 hours as stated. If they were there they could have handled our crab issue at night at least. I've waited days to write this review because good customer service beats all in my book. I wanted to give the owner an opportunity to right her wrongs and even just sincerely apologize for at least not making us aware of crab season/ issue before we booked. But Michelle only goal is money as she attempts to nickel and dime you from time of booking to very end with bullying for tips. Nowhere in booking will you find anything about price for food price chef charges for cab fee to get groceries, price for transportation to and from airport please don't think anything is included as everything is a la carte. If you book prepare to pay cash for your food every morning and no they don't just give it to you at the end or go grocery shopping all at once. There is a walmart between airport and property stock up yourself.

Owner's Response: Dear LaTisha- We here at Casa San Sebastian are so sorry that you did not enjoy your stay more. Our wonderful staff made every effort to make sure that your Birthday Celebration was spectacular, with balloons, Champaign and cupcakes upon your arrival. As stated at the time of the reservation and in your arrival email, you are responsible for the cost of the food, drinks (this is stated in the listing as well food is not included) and it is customary to tip the staff in Mexico; for that we offer a suggested breakdown for you to follow if you like in your arrival email. The suggested tipping is $15 per guest per day and then divide up among the staff. Your suggested total would have been $450 total. It definitely is not required but suggested. I am so sorry that we had some crabs that came into the villa as this is rainy season and this can happen. As you read in our reviews some of our guests joke about them. We make every effort to remove them should this happen first thing in the morning before guests awake, as well as before the staff leaves at night. We do not have 24 hour staff but do have a Groundsman who lives on-site that is available during the night should you need him. The staff is there from 7am until you are finished in the evening, and they do not leave until you let them know you do not need them anymore. Casa San Sebastian also has an On-Site Villa Manager, as the owners live in the states this way you do have that contact in the event that the staff can not help. Knowing that you where unhappy we went ahead and returned your full security deposit even-though there was damage to the property that normally we would of held you responsible for. Again we are sorry that you and your guests did not enjoy your stay. Regards Casa San Sebastian Staff
