Please note, rates are based upon per bedroom, per night. However, pay for only what you occupy (6 bedroom 4 night minimum). Also, the calendar on this site does not reflect our current occupancy. By special arrangement, Villa Verano has been made available to select qualified groups. The Villa is a privately owned estate and is exclusive to its guests and not open to the general public.

Up to 22 spacious en-suite air-conditioned bedrooms with magnificent views. A staff of 10 including three outstanding executive chefs, offering superb service and cuisine. Our staff is permanent full-time year round and are not hired out for rental groups, making a tremendous difference in the service that Villa Verano is famous for. The villa is one of the few in Vallarta that provides a full time on site concierge to handle any of your personal requests. The entire estate caters to ONLY ONE GROUP AT A TIME. Very private and ideal for FAMILY REUNIONS, BUSINESS GROUPS, and WEDDINGS. Also great for close traveling friends who prefer the privacy and service on their own estate rather than spending their vacation in a congested commercial hotel.

Villa Verano is one of the most famous and celebrated villa on the Mexican Riviera. As featured on 'Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous', Robin Leach calls it 'Hollywood's best kept secret'. The estate has been televised in over 31 foreign countries, and has played host to many celebrities and dignitaries from all over the world. It is affectionately known as the “Showplace” of Puerto Vallarta. It enjoys one of the highest repeat 'guest factors' of any rental villa in the world. One group has just celebrated their 25th year at Villa Verano. What distinguishes Villa Verano from all the other large rental villas of 10 bedrooms or more, is that Villa Verano is not a house on a 'lot', it is an in-town, 1-1/2 acre beachfront estate.

Perched on the beach in Conchas Chinas, the most elite residential section of Puerto Vallarta, the villa is a short walk to the shops, restaurants, and night life, and only about 20 minutes from the airport - no rental car needed. The estate commands spectacular views of Puerto Vallarta, its beaches, and the tranquil Bay of Banderas. Villa Verano boasts the only totally private beach 'in town'. The 17,000 square foot villa and its waterfront acre and a half of lush tropical landscaping create an ideal setting for its many graciously sized bedrooms. All are air-conditioned, with private marble bathrooms, and boast magnificent views of the bay. Many rooms feature two queen sized beds, while the rest feature a king sized bed. MORE BEDROOMS NEEDED? For larger parties, the adjacent property is available.

SWIMMING POOL: Villa Verano features one of the largest private swimming pools in Puerto Vallarta, graced by outstanding poolside service from a charming attentive staff. The poolside palapa bar seats 24 and the canopy table seats 14.

SPA SERVICES: Should you wish to treat yourself to a massage, facial, manicure, pedicure, yoga or pilates instruction, these services are available poolside or in the privacy of your suite. They are very reasonably priced. (average for an hour massage is $60) Reservations should be made prior to arrival and may be arranged through our reservations manager at 760-416-3366.

FOOD AND LIQUOR: The menus are selected by the guests, and all the shopping is done by the staff on an 'at cost' basis, with a nominal 15% shopping fee, and delivery charge. (There is no mark-up on the food.) An itemized statement of the grocery bill will be presented to the guests the day before departing the Villa, at which time the bill is paid by cash only (there is a nearby ATM machine/ no credit cards traveler's checks, or personal checks accepted). The chefs are trained under American standards, and wash all fruits and vegetables in a purifying agent prior to their storage in the refrigerator. The estate has its own 30,000 gallon reservoir and purification system. Guests are currently experiencing, for all 3 meals and liquor approximately $50 a day, per person.


The charming, highly trained staff is eager to please and considered one of the finest private home staffs on the Mexican Riviera. They consist of four housemen, two maids, two gardeners, three full-time chefs, a laundress and a full-time onsite concierge who makes all reservations for all sports activities, restaurant reservations, tee times etc.. Their desire is to see that the guests have a wonderful stay, another reason Villa Verano enjoys an exceptional repeat guest factor.

It is customary in Mexico for the staff to have Sunday's and Holiday's off. Therefore, special arrangements must be made in advance for Sunday service, and additional charges apply.

Hard to describe really.... this property is absolutely perfect for a large group event. In my case, my 50th birthday. The Villa Verano team is better than any 5 star resort I've ever been to. They anticipate everything, pay attention to details, remember everyone's name, no request is too small or too big. My guests were absolutely pampered in a beautiful setting and loved every minute of their stay. When I booked with Kevin - he told me most guests barely leave the villa as it has everything: great views, great service, outstanding food and beverage, spa services on site, etc. Well he was right - we spent long days by the pool and couldn't have been happier. Our meals were fantastic. The rooms were also perfect - views from everyone of them and all special in their own unique way. I'll definitely go back some day and would put Villa Verano at the top of my list of places to recommend to my friends.

On behalf of the entire group, thank you! The staff at the Villa and PVBC went above and beyond in making sure we had a terrific time while in PV. I can’t say enough on how supportive and attentive the staff are. It seemed like they knew our every need in advance. Jose is a master at his job. Tony, Oscar, Pancho, and the rest of the team were simply a delight. Leonor, as always was so great to work with. Thank you, for working with us to ensure we got the dates that worked best for everyone. You made everything very easy. Professional, attentive, responsive, and very accommodating!!! The team is top notch! I didn’t hear a single complaint from anyone….nothing!!! Great job!! We are even talking about coming back in a couple years. No other place has been so great to work with on this bi-annual meeting.

Vacation of a lifetime

  • 5 of 5

I recently had the pleasure of staying here in one of the amazing waterfront villas. It is hard to know how to even begin this review, because I have so many wonderful things to say about the experience and the property.

STAFF: They made our trip seamless, enjoyable, easy, entertaining, and treated us like royalty. They were so thoughtful and engaging, anticipating our every need. They knew when to partake in the conversation, and when to leave everyone alone for a nap by the pool or some quiet time.

FOOD: The food was incredible. I have some restrictions in that I only eat fish and I also tend to be quite picky. I cleaned my plate at every meal. The food was lovingly and thoughtfully made. I couldn't have asked for tastier or more satisfying meals.

LOCATION & PROPERTY: This is one of the best locations that you could stay at in PV. You are nestled in what feels like a tropical and private oasis, and yet you are minutes from the center of town. The property is lush, private, and immaculately maintained. There is a lovely pool and poolside bar and then a private beach area to lay out at if you prefer to be closer to the ocean. I swam as the beach is perfectly safe and conducive to swimming. Whether you want to stay at the Villa your entire time, or have adventures into town and around PV - you're in a perfect place.

I cannot wait to go back!

Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5


My name is ............ and I just wanted you to know what an incredible time we've had at the Villa this week. I came with 3 of my children our first visit 8 years ago leaving my wife and one of my sons at home due to school. I wasn't able to make the last two visits my family arranged but came this week with my wife and my two daughters. I just wanted you to know what an amazing time we have had.

The landscaping alone is breathtaking! You must have 800 different types of vegetation that is so very beautiful. The staff have also been amazing!!! From Freddie, to Diego, to Jose and all others in between have been nothing but the most gracious and kind people you could ever want to be around while enjoying a vacation. Even the landscaper is the nicest guy you'd ever want to meet. My only disappointment is the fact I am leaving today and missed the last two family visits.

Please let Burt know how proud he can be that you have created one of the most beautiful environments on earth to come and enjoy. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing us to visit your amazing Villa experience. My wife, daughters, and I are truly blessed to have spent the last week here!!!

Thank you!

Perfect Destination Wedding in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

If there is one place that we would recommend to go for a luxurious and relaxing vacation in a place that makes you feel like your at home, it is Villa Verano and The Puerto Vallarta Beach Club. From the moment we arrived the most warm, inviting staff we have ever had the pleasure of meeting greeted us. We rented the entire estate for a destination wedding vacation and to hold our reception in. It was a massive undertaking that the staff didn't blink an eye at. Not only did they meet and anticipate all our needs throughout the week but they effortlessly helped us get the details in order for the reception throughout the course of the week.

Every meal was delicious and unique and for those guests that had special dietary needs they were met at every meal and never missed. By the end of the trip the staff knew all the names of our guests and we truly couldn't imagine them not being there a part of our celebration. They were there for us from very late at night to breakfast early in the morning always with a huge smile. The process of arranging our stay was also a joy. The owners are wonderful people and they did everything possible to make our family and friends have the best vacation ever! The on site concierge was a wealth of knowledge that helped many of our guests arrange excursions and activities they are still talking about today!

Villa Verano and The Puerto Vallarta Beach Club has the amazing quality of feeling like a luxurious vacation as well as the most comfortable home you could dream of. You feel at ease from the moment you arrive and honestly you don't want to ever leave. For a truly magical and most meaningful vacation or event, Villa Verano & The Puerto Vallarta Beach Club is is the absolute must destination!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 16 just spent another wonderful vacation at the villa. From the minute you arrive to the minute you leave the amazing staff is there for you with a "do you need anything, everything ok?" We had beautiful meals every day from the fresh fruit at breakfast to the wonderful desserts after dinner. We celebrated birthdays and our grandchildrens college graduations, the staff made them feel very special. You can't imagine a more beautiful setting to relax by the pool or enjoy the views from your private balcony. It is an easy walk into town along the beach. Thank you Villa Verano for a wonderful vacation we will be is a special place.
