About Jordan MacPherson

Roger and Nancy MacPherson with the help of their daughter Jordan have worked to make this vacation destination an unparalleled experience. Together we have owned properties in Puerto Vallarta for over 25 years now and have always loved the friendly family culture and inviting environment. Villa Estrella Mar in PV was built with the idea of having an authentic rustic Mexican architectural experience. The design provides many private spaces to relax but has gathering places to celebrate together. Our staff is one of our biggest assets. The English-speaking house staff is there to help with any of your needs from adventures to food choice. They are employed full time and can be trusted as they pamper you and your friends.

Why Jordan MacPherson chose Puerto Vallarta

The Romantic zone in Puerto Vallarta is a true treasure of Mexico, nestled below the plush jungle hillsides with its cobblestone roads and beautiful homes with phenomenal views. As the city has grown it has maintained its friendly personality and rustic feel, you will see families strolling hand in hand down the Malecon and will always feel safe. Villa Estrella Mar embraces this same personality and maintains that authentic rustic feel while being known as one of the most complete and beautiful villas in the entire world. The Villas closeness to Old Town is an easy walk by beach or by winding stone lane road. You are so close but without the vendor noise and hustle.

Mastermind retreat went really well

  • 5 of 5

Our mastermind retreat went really well. The Villa is just stunning, no other way to put it. The staff are exceptional, Paco, Giovani, Lupe all of them are top notch professionals and great people. The old town Puerto Vallarta is great with some excellent restaurants and small shops. Fresh guac was to die for, margaritas were delicious and the views will punch you in the gut and take your breath away :) I would recommend this place for business retreats and family vacations, although not sure about bringing small children. Also, July is very hot and humid, so keep that in mind. The rooms are very comfortable at night with the AC, but during the day you need to be at the beach or by the pool often enough to keep cool.

Everything about Estrella Mar is perfect. The beauty of it will take your breath away. The villa, the staff, the food, the location, and the art - all of it combined made it heaven on earth. We had a group of 16 and everyone wanted to plan a trip back to Estrella Mar.

This has to be one of the best places in Puerto Vallarta - the views and the location on the private beach are wonderful. The pool is a special spot too - and while you are there you are served delicious food and drinks - perfection. We liked everything about Estrella Mar - especially the superior service we received from the staff - Thank you Paco..... can't wait to return

This is the perfect getaway! Truly carefree living. The staff takes care of everything, and the only thing we needed to worry about was what to order for the next meal. The food was fresh, varied and delicious. I have food allergies and they carefully made sure they were never an issue for me.

Breakfast included guacamole, bacon, a fruit plate: fresh mango, papaya, etc… We were well cared for. The staff was very kind and ensured that I could focus on my work with no distractions. All your needs are met.

The villa is beautiful and spacious. Enchanted spaces were found around every turn, with the curved architecture and the Mexican art throughout, it had a delightful sense of whimsy. It certainly feels unique due to the art and the design.

We had 6-8 people during our 5 day stay. I highly recommend this for get togethers. A couple of us would get up before breakfast and congregate on the balcony with the comfortable wicker chairs in the open air. The staff brought coffee as we watched the whales. There are plenty of other spots to congregate - by the pool, in the main room, on the balcony outside the bedrooms, …

One evening we invited friends over for the afternoon and evening. The rooms still felt spacious and worked well for entertaining more people without feeling cramped.

It was very comfortable at night. You wake up to the sounds of waves on the beach and the smell of bacon. I had a sitting area, a shower and bathtub and huge dressing room wth two sinks.

The villa is right on the beach with multiple floors, each open with archways and decorated wth artwork and flowers. The town is a pleasant walk away, where there are delightful art galleries to browse. If you prefer to take a cab to town, the staff will order one for you. One night we ate in town on the beach - the food was delicious.

I would go back in a heartbeat.

Estrella mar is hands down one of the best places I have ever stayed at! The entire experience was incredible and makes you feel like royalty; the staff is on their A game all the time. Where else can you go where they hand you a margarita as soon as you get out of the car when you first arrive? We loved our stay so much and cannot wait to get back down to PV and stay at Estrella Mar again.

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 5 days at the BEAUTIFUL house! We had a group of 12 and everyone loved it! The staff was phenomenal - Jordan, Paco, Jesus, Lupo - all made sure our stay was perfect. In working with Jordan to book everything, no detail was left unknown. She was prompt, informative and friendly when booking our trip! Paco - there are not enough words to explain how much we enjoyed him during our trip. He made sure we had everything we could possibly need while at the house. He was extremely professional and went above and beyond his responsibilities. The house itself was immaculate, enormous, beautifully decorated and prestine! Jesus worked so hard each day to make sure we were having a great time, a refreshing beverage, and was so friendly! Lupo, oh the food that Lupo prepared. We travel regularly and the food was exceptional. The location from the airport was 20 minutes which was very convenient. The setting over the water was serene and the most beautiful we've seen! A quick 5 minute stroll to downtown PV was perfect for an afternoon of exploring. Overall, we can't say enough great things about this place! It truly was an unforgettable vacation! Our entire group loved everything about it. Already talking about a return trip!!
