Exceeded Our Expectations!
This was all of our first experiences visiting Vallarta. We all agree we couldn't have imagined a better experience without Villa Venado. The house was gorgeous with the most amazing views of the Bay, an exclusive private location and gave us a feeling of home. No hotel or resort could ever provide these comforts and luxuries we enjoyed at Villa Venado. Maribel & Marisol, your attentiveness, kindness and such nice personalities, set the comforting / welcoming tone. Thank you from the bottom of our hears. Angeles, your food was amazing! Can we take you home with us? Please! Thank you for customizing the menu based on our tastes and allergies. We hope to see you again next year.

We stayed in this home for a week. It is beautiful, perfectly appointed and has a talented staff. My favorite part was their sound system and the pool table. We had a memorable time.

You worry when renting a property that the real thing does not live up to the pictures. At villa venado the real thing is better. This is a first class property. Gorgeous from top to bottom. Really high class place. I don't know if I've ever stayed in a nicer place. Juliana and jeff, the owners, were amazing to deal with and so helpful setting everything up. Even called while we were there to make sure we were all happy. Nice touch Tony the house manager was there to fulfil our every need, we asked and it was done. Cabs, golfing, reservations, etc. The staff, Jorge and the chefs were so helpful around the house, cooking, cleaning and helping with anything we asked all with a smile. I could go on and on really. We were a group of 14 guys really looking to let loose so I am sure we were a handful, but the staff always had a smile and just made our time there so easy and fun. The people, the pool, the rooms all really just top notch. I could go on and on. If I or my friends make it back to puerto Vallarta this will definitely be the first accommodation option to look into. This is a winning rental, don't miss out.

Amazing Family Vacation
Amazing Family Vacation
WOW; this property is amazing! This was the first time I rented a vacation home because usually we will stay in a hotel, but I am so glad we chose to rent this home because it was much more relaxing than being in a hotel. The home is extremely spacious and every room has these amazing doors the length of a wall, that open allowing for clear views of the ocean. Everything in the house is brand new. The kitchen was fully stocked when we arrived with all of the items we requested, so there was no need to go grocery shopping. The only place in this house that you can not see the ocean from is one of the bathrooms downstairs. The pool table and game room kept the kids occupied which gave us adults plenty of time to relax under the palapa hut outside on the deck . We asked the home owners if they knew of a scuba dive instructor and they had one on call that came to the house and gave private scuba lessons. This is the perfect home for 2-3 families to share or for 6-7 couples to share on vacation...it is massive. I will definitely be staying at this home again in the near future. If you are looking to get away from the hotel scene, then you MUST stay here!

My 30th Birthday Party
My 30th Birthday Party
This Villa is AMAZING! This was my 9th trip back to Puerto Vallarta and this villa was BY FAR the best place I have ever stayed at. It's 1/2 way in between Mismaloya and Zona Romantica. It does take about 15 minutes to get into town but once we got there we realized that we didn't really need to leave. The staff was awesome and the Chef was AMAZING! Little tip - I know Hamburgers doesn't really sound like something you would order from a chef but we had it on the last day and the way she mixed the ingredients for the hamburgers was the best I have ever had. I want to pay to go back to PV for 1 day just to have her cooking again. The villa was kept extremely clean and they had a great selection of DVD's. They don't have any boardgames though so we bought and left UNO downstairs next to the pool restroom. Also something it didn't really show in the pictures is that there are even pinball machines and a shuffle board down on the 2nd of 5 levels. One of my favorite things about the villa is the view. No matter where you are in the house you have a BEAUTIFUL view. It's also located above a cool resort "Garza Blanca" that you can walk down to and they have two restaurants and a day rate for the pool if you want to be around other people but we never did because we were too happy at the house. Other tips - Have the houseman order a Yoga Instructor ($120) and move the furniture down by the pool table to do Yoga over looking the swimming pool. Also you can have a massage therapist come to the house as well. They always say $50 but in off season you can talk them into $350 pesos (Under $30).

WOW was all I can say when we walked through the antique gates into the courtyard. And we had yet to enter the house. It is magnificent! The ceilings are two stories high with glass walls that look out at the most magnificent view of Bahia Banderas. Every room is decorated with great attention to details. Each bedroom has it's own style, with very comfortable beds, linens and so many pillows you can loose yourself. Each en suite bath has unique granite designed showers and sinks with state of the art fixtures. The tile work is astounding and all done in warm natural colors.The house manager Tony had us all picked up at the airport and there were Marguritas and Dips waiting for us. We chose to have a Chef cook the first night which was a great idea, we did not want to leave. The pool and jacuzzi and the palaypa bar were too good to be true. After an amazing meal and sunset we drifted into the media room and settled into the surround sound system and played pool on the antique pool table.The staff was so attentive, we felt like we were at a 5 star hotel! Thank you for having us, we will return.

On a bit of a whim, 7 friends got together and headed south to Puerto Vallarta for a week of sun. The VRBO property looked pretty incredible and we wondered what the catch was going to be. Much to our delight, Villa Venado was more spectacular than the listing boasted. Every attention to detail was used in the construction, design and furnishing of this expansive, gorgeous home, from floor lighting illuminating artwork and artifacts to luxurious bedding that you wanted to lie in all day long. While the weather was a bit cloudy the first couple of days, this only provided the most dramatic and exotic of sunsets that enveloped us in colour from every room. We did see a mother and baby humpback whale breaching in the panoramic ocean bay one morning and the bird population had us passing the binoculars back and forth at every breakfast. The pool was lovely, the leather furniture soft and comfortable, and the kitchen became a hub of activity with everyone participating in creating fabulous mexican meals. The size and design of the home allowed everyone to do as they pleased without fear of intrusion or exclusion. We did venture out to scare ourselves at the Los Verano Canopy Tours just 20 minutes south along the picturesque coast line and the experience did not disappoint. This particular zip line facility was in a very pretty valley with a very inviting restaurant and very entertaining staff. We shopped and watched the Mardi Gras parade on the waterfront promenade in old town and basically had a fabulous, relaxing getaway. We would highly recommend it to family and friends and look forward to our return, thanks so much Jeff, Juliana and all the staff.

Villa Venado far exceeded my expectations. Prior to arrival, the owners were very easily to work with, and they had everything arranged for us. Tony, the house manager, had his brother pick us up at the airport. Tony had been busy shopping for everything we requested. As soon as we passed the "shark tank" of time-share sellers in the airport, we were greeted by Tony's brother. The hospitality began immediately and continued throughout the trip. We arrived to fresh margaritas, guacamole, and pico de gallo. Tony gave us a tour of the breathtaking house. Every room is fantastic, but the master bedroom was really something special. The views of the bay are incredible, the house was very roomy, and quality art provided very nice decoration. The house was stocked with everything we needed. Tony did our shopping for us, though he did take us to a local seafood market that was a real treat. The pool was perfect. The staff adjusted the temperature of the water for us as we desired. The hotub would get as hot as we could stand it. The built-in sound system with Sonos control was incredible. If we wanted to go to the beach, it was a 10 min walk down the hill. However, we much preferred the pool. The wifi and Vonage services worked well. The staff were great. Tony would get anything we needed. The housekeepers kept the villa spotless and took care of our laundry. The chef Marianna was superb. We asked her to cook mostly Mexican, and she prepared fantastic Mahi tacos, chicken with mole sauce, enchiladas verde and rancheros, fish and shrimp ceviche, and stewed pork tacos. Her guacamole and pico de gallo were always great. Our favorite breakfast dish was banana pancakes. Garza Blanca resort is located just under the villa. We ate dinner one night at Blanca Blue and found it to be very good but not particularly noteworthy. The spa at the resort was very good with incredible views. It took about 15-20 min by taxi to get into town for about $100 pesos. Taxis were very plentiful. Dinner at Cafe des Artistes was excellent, and I would highly recommend venturing into town to eat there.

My family arrived at the airport and was greeted by our house manager Tony. I am glad that we opted to have him restock the villa and could go directly there from the airport. The pictures are beautiful but when you see this custom furnished place, you will be amazed. There is a view of Banderas Bay from most every room in the house. We went to town a couple of evenings though we all preferred to enjoy the dinners prepared for us by the chef and relaxing by the pool. This villa is fairly new, maybe 3 years old and has been very well maintained. They spared no expense including on the beds and bedding. We plan on coming back again in November and am looking into making reservations already! Janine

EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS!
Villa Venado is a truly spectacular place to stay. My family stayed here for 1 week and was fabulous. The cook made amazing meals for us. Tony, the house manager scheduled massages for most of us in the group. The owners of this Villa also own Canopy Los Veranos which is a great zipline canopy tour and had a blast. My family and I would highly recommend this place to unwind and relax. You are close enough to Vallarta but far enough away from the hustle and bustle. Great Beach too!

The depth of the pool is 5' deep with a seat along the perimeter. There is a fabulous Family/ Game Room which is located adjacent to the pool area. You can enjoy the pool, 65' flat screen TV or a game of pool, all within steps of each other. It is a great area to entertain or spending with family and friends. Most guests enjoy a wonderful massage poolside!
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The privacy and the ocean views are magnificent from most every room in the house. Villa Venado is only 5 minutes from The Romantic District or Mismaloya.
