Ensconced behind the landmark Los Arcos rock formation, Casa Marilu III is located ten minutes south of town, in the middle of the luxury hotel zone and close to the best beaches in Puerto Vallarta. Two hundred yards away is a secluded, sandy beach. The villa is also within walking distance from the famous Mismaloya Beach, which offers many beachside restaurants. Both beaches offer some of the best swimming and relaxation around.

The pristine, curved infinity swimming pool juts out over the rocks and sea below. The grounds at Casa Marilu III also feature a barbeque, as well as an alfresco dining area and bar. Indoors, you will find a home theatre, Bose music system, Wi-Fi access and baby equipment. Your reservation includes a cook and houseman who will prepare the food and drinks just to your liking.

A housekeeper and a very efficient manager also visit the villa every day, to bring hot rolls, a newspaper and answer questions or arrange special events and outings. The staff is very friendly, professional and experienced to ensure a memorable and hassle free stay.

The villa is brightly decorated with distinctive Mexican furniture, colorful accessories and unique handicrafts. The kitchen comes fully loaded with a large center island. The main level living/dining area features elegant white marble floors lined with pebble mosaics, comfortable oversized couches, high ceilings and skylights, an interior garden, a stereo and bar. The large glass doors, usually left open, lead to a large, partly covered terrace right to the pool.

Four spacious and elegant bedrooms welcome up to eight guests at Casa Marilu III. Children are welcome. The bedrooms include en-suite bathrooms, ceiling fans and air conditioning. Easy access to the outdoors and preserved views of the ocean make sleeping and waking a pure joy!

Casa Marilu III offers beachfront elegance and modern perks at their finest. Options for many leisure activities such as surfing, sport fishing, parasailing, jungle adventures, swimming with the dolphins and horseback riding are also located nearby. From golf to shopping and nightlife, or just sipping your favorite cocktail while admiring the fading colors of the day, there is something for everyone under the therapeutic Riviera sun!

Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta lies along Banderas Bay, the second largest bay in the Western Hemisphere. It is located 352 kilometers (219 miles) from Guadalajara, the state capital of Jalisco, and it is nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Madre mountain range. The region has many forests, rivers and waterfalls, with an average temperature of 27C (80F).

Of its many attractions Playa Mismaloya, which gained fame from the film "The Night of the Iguana", is a popular celebrity hangout. The impressive rock formations of Los Arcos emerge from the bay's crystalline waters, which are great for diving and discovering incredible underwater mountains and steeps. The city hall has murals painted by Manuel Lepe, and the Malecon (sea wall) is adorned with romantic bronze sculptures. Whats more, the streets of downtown offer shops and galleries that sell local paintings and sculptures of local artists. The city, known for its top-notch services, also has golf courses, boutiques and a marina.

In Puerto Vallarta you can enjoy the exquisite regional cuisine of Jalisco, that so many people have come to love, and the terraces of open-air restaurants, where you can watch cruise ships roll in as you take in an incredible sunset.

Sport fishing is just one of many activities you can do during your stay in Puerto Vallarta. Each year, during the month of November, the International Sailfish Fishing Tournament takes place. Other activities available in this region are eco-tourism, extreme sports, snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, boating, golfing and nightlife.

The villa is beautiful,...

  • 5 of 5

The villa is beautiful, very clean with a breathtaking ocean view. . It 's the cleanest villa we have rented. Everything was in good repair. The area is pretty isolated. The town Mismaloya is an old Mexican town and not really for tourists. Upscale hotels & restaurants are not too far (10 min. taxi ride) so you don't have to go into Puerto Vallarta (45 min). Tanya our concierge recommended Boccados STK for our dinner out & it was great.

What made our experience so wonderful was Cesar (houseman), Ermando (chef) and Suzy (housekeeper). They bent over backwards to accommodate us. Cesar is kind, knowledgeable & helpful. Ermando is a true professional chef and prepared some of the best food we have had in Mexico. They were so warm & caring and that really made our stay so special.

Plan on a very quiet restful stay. Good wifi. 4th room is small for 2 adults. There is no beach near by but the waves on the rocks lulled us to sleep and the whales & dolphins danced for us.

The villa was nice,...

  • 4 of 5

The villa was nice, but not what I expected as seen in the pictures. The outside area looked great and big in the pictures and there where really small. The rooms where nice and clean. Great view but the best of all was the staff - made the vacation worth it. The house is far from town or marina.

The trip was incredible. The house was a little smaller than the pictures made it seem, but still incredibly spacious and beautiful. The staff at the house was very very helpful, always willing to help and make everything perfect. They cooked very well and everything we asked. I also received text messages from Luxury Retreats once day checking in and making sure that everything was going well. There was security outside the front door at night and we never felt unsafe. All in all the house, staff, and entire vacation was incredible.
