Unique and Beautiful House!! Unforgettable Trip!!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family who has traveled together for holiday getaways several times, were looking for that perfect place that would comfortably fit all 12 of us and have the requirement of sun, beach, and a fantastic view for the New Years week. We were looking all over - Jamaica, Costa Rica, Hawaii, and Riviera Maya when we stumbled upon this little town of Mismaloya near Puerta Vallarta. Enter Villa Tortugas! This house will cause you to catch your breath, the photos do not truly convey the spaciousness and beauty of the setting. We loved to explore all the areas of the house and the tiered landscaping and pathways around it. We spent so much time in the pool on the edge of the ocean. It was relaxing to hear the waves below and mesmerizing to watch them, never tiring of the view of the Los Arcos Islands. We saw whales directly out from the house; and many birds, butterflies, and a visiting pair of Iguanas. We did not rent a car, so we walked across the street to hop on the local bus for 8 pesos to drop us off at some of the nearby beaches and in to Puerta Vallarta for some shopping one day. Paulette, the owner, was incredibly helpful. She arranged the three different airport pick ups, as well as a day trip to Sayulita. Paulette found us a local guide (Luis) for one day of exploring the hidden beaches to the South along with a little snorkeling at Los Arcos, and another day took 5 of us for a deeper water fishing trip. We ate all of our meals at the house at the perfect round table for 12 . Here is where I must reveal what other reviewers chant: GLORIA! What an exceptionally talented chef, she completely spoiled us! She cooked an amazing and varied breakfast every day. We had snacks later at the pool, and another delicious full course dinner every evening. One night my son celebrated his 20th birthday, and Gloria and the staff made it a party with balloons and cake!! We came to know the rest of the staff so well during the stay - Carmen, Jorge, Miguel, Corrine - they gave us lots of privacy and always seemed to know the right moment to bring out abundant quantities of quacamole and margaritas! Gloria speaks English but it did help that two in our group speak Spanish. Lastly, the booking process was safe as I at first hesitated because a check for the full amount was needed to be mailed to Paulette's New York office. However there was always communication, I spoke with Paulette by phone, email, and What'sApp for messages. I highly recommend this house!!

Breathtaking property on the hillside of Puerto Vallarta. The home, although 6 stories, was spotless and the staff was very friendly. They cooked us a few breakfasts and cleaned our rooms while we were out. The food at the home was a nice surprise - everything freshly made by the staff on site, and delicious. The view, priceless. It's the good life.

Breathtaking property on the hillside of Puerto Vallarta. The home, although 6 stories, was spotless, and the staff was extremely friendly. The staff made a few breakfasts for us and cleaned up our rooms when we were gone. The food was a nice surprise. Everything freshly made and delicious. The view, priceless. Nothing bad to say about this home.

Villa Tortuga is one of the most magnificent homes you will ever stay in! Beautify built into the cliffs, the spacious home is perfect for families, groups or special events.

The listing was very accurate, and actually exceeded all of our expectation. In fact, the pictures do not do justice to the property! We spent most of our time switching between the two pools (one smaller one upstairs off the kitchen and another larger pool downstairs), but there is also plenty of private space to relax. The kitchen and dining area easily accommodated our whole group so we could all eat meals together. And the outdoor bar space was great so you can store drinks and snacks outside without having to run back up to the kitchen for a refill.

The home was very clean and well-maintained, and staff came daily to clean the home. All the appliances were very new and worked well. And the design of the home was beautiful.

The owner was easily accessible and provided excellent customer service. As it was my first time in Puerto Vallarta the owner offered many suggestions on places to go and things to do, all of which were within a short ride from the house.

One of my favorites was Chico's Paradise, which was about a 10 minute ride from the house. This amazing seafood restaurant runs along a river, and while you are enjoying whole grilled fish, you can watch the acrobatic cliff divers put on a show. Downtown was a bit further (maybe 20 minute drive depending on traffic), but there were endless bars and restaurants to visit.

I would highly recommend this rental to anyone. Puerto Vallarta is a wonderful city and this home was absolutely perfect!

This place was absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I stepped foot into this house I knew it was going to be like no other vacation. The house is perfectly situated into the rocks which make you feel like you are literally staying on the ocean. The listing description I originally viewed was 100% accurate. In addition the property was spotless with no service issues which was an added bonus. The owner was very helpful especially since I speak minimal spanish. They were happy to assist me coordinate my outings and and even help me make reservations for me at awesome restaurants. For someone planning on staying I would suggest a boat ride along the coast with a stop at a local private beach. If you're feeling a little thirst even a tour of a local tequila distillery should help. Some restaurants I enjoyed were La Leche, El Palomar del los Gonzalez and Chico's Paradise (If you're lucky you can catch front row rock jumping). I would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative. Honestly, writing this review brought back nothing but good memories and I hope to return to this wonderful place one day!
