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.

Jordan MacPherson purchased this Villa in 1995

Why Jordan MacPherson chose Amapas

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.

The only thing not included is the cost of groceries, both food and drinks. Please note, we do not charge a service fee for shopping or mark up our items. Our staff takes extra care in finding you the highest quality ingredients for the best bargain and shops at numerous local markets as well as some of the bigger chain stores. Our chefs will provide two meals a day, breakfast and lunch or breakfast and dinner each day. Breakfasts have a number of items that are served family style. Once all items have been brought out, you and your guests have the option of ordering additional items individually. Lunches and Dinners are ordered as a group, meaning everyone is served the same dish. Of course if members of your group have allergies, etc. we are happy to work around them to accommodate everyone. To give you an idea of cost for meals, estimate $25-$35 a day per guest staying for food/drinks.

                                                                      Catherine P.

                                                                      On my second trip to Puerto Vallarta, I had the privilege to stay at Villa Estrella Mar. WOW! Immediately after walking through the front door, I knew I was in paradise. No matter where I was in the Villa, I was blown away by a gorgeous view of the ocean.

                                                                      Can we talk about the food? Delicious! As someone with dietary restrictions, the staff was so wonderful with accommodating my needs. I still dream of how good the french toast was at breakfast!

                                                                      Jordan was fantastic! Before the trip, she suggested fun excursions for our group of 15 people to do. My favorite was a snorkeling trip and hiking to a waterfall.

                                                                      Lastly, the Villa was a perfect distance to town. Just a short walk to the shops and restaurants. Which was great when I was ready for a cool down after walking around town and wanted to jump in the pool!

                                                                      Can’t wait to book next years friends getaway!

                                                                      My favorite place to stay in Puerto Vallarta!

                                                                      We stayed at Villa Estrella Mar with a group of friends and it was such an fantastic experience and vacation for everyone! The location is perfect and feels secluded even though you're just a short walk from Old Town via the beach or cobble stone street. The Villa staff is wonderful and the meals, OH the meals!!! I'm still day dreaming about all of the delicious food we ate and drinks we enjoyed by the private pool. The rooms are VERY spacious and the beds are comfortable. I've been to Puerto Vallarta many times and this is by far my favorite place to stay! Jordan was a dream to work with on booking this property. She is very organized and responsive. I'll definitely be doing more business with her.

                                                                      What an amazing experience!!

                                                                      Josh A.

                                                                      I highly recommend this villa to all! From the moment I became in contact with Jordan she was the most organized and helpful person when booking the house. She helped answer all my questions so when I arrived I knew what to expect.

                                                                      The house itself doesn’t need much explanation as you can see from the pictures of how beautiful it is. What made the trip was the staff. The meals they cooked were delicious and they helped us out with everything from cabs to buying more beverages for the group.

                                                                      Can’t say enough about how good my experience was and would recommend to anyone looking to go to puerto Vallarta.

                                                                      Simply Incredible

                                                                      Kevin B.

                                                                      Villa Estrella Mar is by far one of the best vacation destinations I have experienced. After having been to Puerto Vallarta many times over the years, I didn’t think it could get any better. Boy was I wrong! Villa Estrella Mar far surpassed my expectations. The property beautifully represents the best in authentic decor, the staff masterfully provides for every need while having fun with the guests, and words cannot do the views complete justice. You have to experience Villa Estrella Mar to fully understand how magical it is. Have some coconut shrimp and a frozen margarita by the pool, you’ll be in heaven!

                                                                      Fantastic Experience

                                                                      Clint A.

                                                                      Where to start with Villa Estrella Mar? This is the most beautiful property I have vacationed, the views are stunning, and the location is full of gorgeous artwork. I stayed with a group of friends where we had the time of our lives. Every need and more was met by the staff with hand crafted cocktails, amazing food, and laughs. Jordan made great recommendations for adventurous activities, shopping, and wonderful restaurants that were just a short walk up the beach from the villa. We had such a wonderful time and experience at Villa Estrella Mar that I am having a hard time adapting back to normal life at home! I can not recommend this place enough, I’m already trying to get enough family members together so we can go back.

                                                                      Comfortable Luxury!

                                                                      Katie W.

                                                                      Best. Vacation. Ever.

                                                                      Staying at Villa Estrella Mar is an experinace that is second to none. The villa itself is stunning and spacious. We stayed there as a group of 17, but never felt like we were on top of each other because the rooms offer so much privacy. However, there are several spaces where we could all sit together as well.

                                                                      The food was exceptional and Paco & his team was always there when you needed them for a margarita refill or to help you call a taxi. My favorite detail was that when we returned to our room at night, the staff closed up all the shutters at dinner, so our room was nice and cool! Sleeping was a dream & I wanted to take the sheets home with me!

                                                                      As far as location goes- I have visited Puerto Vallarta several times, and have stayed everywhere from the Resorts in the North to the more inland streets of Old Town. On a map Estrella Mar looked a little “off the trail” but was pleased to find that it is a quick walk into town on the streets, or even via the beach! A $3-ish dollar cab ride will take you into town- Much more convenient than staying in one of the resorts up north.

                                                                      If you want to go beyond booking accommodations, book a whole experience at Estrella Mar.

Possibility for a tequila tasting with chocolate pairing as well. Be sure to ask us and we can help you get it booked!
