Villa Mandarinas is one of the brightest jewels in Mismaloya. This architectural masterpiece cascades down six beautiful tiers of native vegetation, dramatic cliffs and colorful gardens overlooking the beach and cove featured in the classic motion picture The Night of the Iguana. Villa Mandarinas offers its guests the ability to arrive by land or sea. By water, the home’s earthy and vibrant colors draw your eye from miles away.
The property’s dramatic castle walls rising to the terraces, gardens and lawns above grow more impressive as you pass Los Arcos and continue to the estate. As you step off the boat onto Villa Mandarinas’ pier, you arrive at the private beach on one side of the property that balances itself against a spacious natural salt water pool on the other. These features are expressions of architect Alberto Alvarez’s vision of what an tropical getaway deserves. Inside this eco-friendly villa, you will find a home entertainment system, a computer and Wi-Fi. Your reservation includes housekeeping, a cook service, a butler service, a manager and 24/7 security.
Soaring ceilings and capacious rooms open onto terraces and landings throughout the residence. The cathedral-like vastness of the property allows your cares to drift away. Four custom, handblown chandeliers complement the loftiness of the home. The chandelier in the dining room hovers below the ceiling illuminating the one of a kind sabino wood table carved from a single tree. The stairs, made from beautiful dark stained haya wood, act as the visual hub of the home. The base of the stairs flows organically into a massive boulder that bisects the kitchen and dining area from the main living room.
Each of the seven master bedrooms has a spectacular view of the bay and individual private terraces shaded by bamboo. The unique features of each master bathroom speak to the creativity and artistic inspiration of Villa Mandarinas’ designers. In one bedroom, a half ton sink has been carved from a volcanic boulder so massive that the piece was installed and the room built around it.
Villa Mandarinas can accommodate up to sixteen fortunate guests, and children are welcome. From corporate retreats, to families and friends, this villa makes an ideal spot to rejuvenate and refresh one’s spirits. From golf to water sports, shopping and nightlife, there is something for everyone under the Riviera sun!

Visitors were so infrequent that the locals could tell you how many were in town on any given day. Strangely enough, Puerto Vallarta’s tourism boom did not come from Puerto Vallarta at all but from Banderas Bay’s most coveted jewel, Mismaloya.
In 1963 John Huston’s “The Night of the Iguana” was filmed using Mismaloya’s virgin coasts and unspoiled jungles as a backdrop. John Huston once wrote that he was the only person who cared for the place; he was of course, very wrong. The legend, surrounding the production and the many twists and turns of the cast’s romances while filming, had Americans flocking to theaters in droves, turning once unknown Puerto Vallarta into the dream destination for millions of Mexico’s Northern neighbors. The incredible influx of tourism over the years changed Puerto Vallarta into one of the world’s most popular vacation destinations, and while Puerto Vallarta grew, the people who wanted to retain the ambience and feel of Banderas Bay’s once virgin coastlines rediscovered Mismaloya’s beauty and tranquility. While Puerto Vallarta’s landscape and terrain allows for more and more expansion, homes in Mismaloya are rare. Most of Mismaloya exists in a single tier walking inland from coast, to home, to the road and finally to the Sierra Madre mountains.
