San Francisco (San Pancho) villa description
Few places enchant the senses quite like Villa Violeta. Luxury-Seclusion-Adventure-Rejuvination. Our private boutique villa sits atop a granite recess with stunning views of the northwestern coastline on the Pacific Ocean. It is nestled amongst twenty-five private acres of soaring palms and boasts over 350 feet of beachfront on just under 1 acre of land. We offer quality services with a good cook who provides food and beverage shopping, prepares and serves 2 meals a day (breakfast is included in weekly rate), with daily housekeeping and spa services. By car or taxi, only 45 minutes from the airport in Puerto Vallarta and 15 minutes from the popular town of Sayulita.
It is the perfect destination for those who seek seclusion, privacy, tranquility, and luxury, and yet is located just 40 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta with its international airport, world-class dining, great shopping and nightlife. It is 2 miles from the quaint, unspoiled village of San Francisco, 15 minutes from the bustling fishing and surfing village of Sayulita, and a short drive to the Four Seasons Resort at Punta de Mita.
The palapa roof soars to over 60 feet creating a dramatic backdrop for this unique home. There is a whisper of Indonesian style in the decor and dramatic touches of India in the architectural details.
The 40 foot living room is open wide to take advantage of the soft Pacific breezes and coastline views, while milky, marble floors cool your bare feet. Ancient carved Indian arches frame the media room, with its comfortable seating area, air-conditioning, satellite TV, PS3, movie projector with a pull down movie screen, Twin vanities, and a stunning outdoor shower that complete the Media Room.
The large, charming kitchen is fully-equipped with a microwave, toaster oven, coffeemaker, you name it...but best of all, a wonderful local cook to tend to all your needs! Just steps away is an outdoor terrace overlooking the pool, beach, and gorgeous Pacific coastline.
Follow the stone steps around the house to the private, spacious, second-floor king Palapa Suite with a shower. This room also includes an annex with 2 twin beds & an open closet. Their is another side room with a full & twin bed. The open-air palapa stretches up another 30 feet for a dramatic effect. The beds are draped in flowing white nets and have fans for a cool breeze all to give this room its own exotic/tropical personality. It's the perfect romantic hideaway.
There is a comfortable garden/spa lounge, (perfect for kids/teens or adventurous adults to sleep) overlooking the manicured gardens and pool. The perfect spot for a massage, afternoon siestas, reading your favorite book or just whiling away the hours in paradise. Must use powder room at main entrance. No full bath.
Take a few steps down from the main house to one of our 3 casita's Casa Nido. This private, cozy casita has a king bed and private bathroom with an outdoor shower. Very romantic! Continue on a few more steps down from there and you arrive at Casa Coco, our largest Casita. The lower level has a king bed, clawfoot bathtub, private bathroom all surrounded by beautifully handcrafted rock walls, The main level has a king bed, living room area, kitchenette and a beautiful wrap around deck. In the main area there is also and loft area with 2 queen beds. There is a shared private outdoor shower surrounded with a bamboo wall for the entire casita. This is perfect for 2 couples or a family! Take the steps down from the main house across the pool, across the beautiful yoga deck and you arrive at Casa Mirador. This Casita has a king bed, indoor shower and sunken bathtub. All of the walls are glass doors that slide open to hear and feel the ocean breeze. As all of our views are spectacular, Casa Mirador has a especially stunning view! You can enjoy this view from your room or on the rooftop deck furnished with lounge chairs and an outdoor bed.
You can relax all day on the sands of your secluded beach, pass the hours beside the sparkling, sapphire pool, or take a gentle ride in a hammock while overhead the palm trees dance to the ocean breezes. Rustic, private steps will carry you down to the sands below, while your chariot awaits to take you back up --- this villa has its own railway-style tram!
If Villa Violeta sounds like your idea of paradise, then we invite you to reserve your place in the sun. Perhaps before you know it, you´ll be tucking your toes in the warm sands of this storybook cove, sipping margarita's by the fading light of the sun, and all the while the rustling fronds of the coco palms whisper...'Paradise found!'

Most relaxing vacation ever
Most relaxing vacation ever
Ten of us stayed at Villa-Violeta to celebrate my partner's 40th birthday, and we could not have asked for better. What an amazing spot. We have never had such a relaxing vacation and we have traveled exstensively (Villa-Violeta is as good as our favourite B&B in Italy, Il Cannito). The location is amazing. The staff (Yesika, Gaby, Xciel, Mayra) were exceptional. We usually cook ourselves because we love to cook and some of us have dietary restirctions (two vegans, three vegetarians, 5 omnivores), but after the first night's meal we decided en mass to have Gaby do the rest of the cooking for us! We recommend using the Villa's taxi service to pick you up at the PV airport (unless you are going to rent a car) as you will save $100. Two of us walked the three miles into town one day and had lunch in San Pancho (Tiki or Tipi something -upstairs from the outdoor juice bar-, wonderful food and excellent fresh squeezed juices/smoothies). Otherwise we simply swam, kayaked, ate and drank, lounged in the sun by the pool and on the beach, and had a phenomenal time. If we could visit yearly we would. We will be back! p.s. For my partner's 40th, Yesika arranged to have two Mariachis sing on the beach for us and she found a pinata for us to take swings at!

Like no place else

Eight of us stayed at this magical place for Spring Break (March 2013) and were entirely thrilled and pampered. This was the second visit for some of us and certainly not the last. All the descriptions and reviews cannot adequately do justice to the beauty, seclusion, and tremendous care of Villa Violetta. The staff was warm and accommodating. We wanted to bring Pancho (the chef) and Carla (the housekeeper) home with us. That's how much we felt like family. If you are looking for a complete getaway that is still convenient enough to Puerto Vallarta without the craziness of the big resorts, this is the find of a lifetime. I still miss the sound of the ocean and the sublime beauty of the flowering trees. We'll bring more family and friends soon!

Slice of Paradise, Truly
Slice of Paradise, Truly
Villa Violeta is a rare treat for even the most seasoned traveller..after a 10 minute jungle ride, bouncing past the large gates of estates in San Poncho - a lovely space with palm trees appears on a secluded beach with a staircase to heaven - the villa with four casita's. A Hollywood-esque property with pool, chef and house team to welcome you. Our family was treated like stars from our morning breakfast overlooking the Ocean to Sunset cocktails on the beach. Bonfires, private parties and exquisite meals to satisfy every whimiscle. Thumps up from us and book it at this rate while you can..Four Seasons has a competitor ;)

Oh, the food! I loved the food at Villa Violeta as much as the beach, the bed, the sun and Mexico, itself. The staff cook (organized by the Villa) fed us all potently well with fresh fish caught that day that melted like butta in your mouth. Mmmm, good. All of the meals were excellent including the simple eggs, tortillas, beans and bacon breakfasts and the all out gourmet Mexican traditional entrees. Kudos to the cooks and kitchen staff for their excellence in menu variation, complexity, presentation, taste, service and punctuality. The rooms were comfortable and after a long day of taking it easy or madly playing in the surf, my bed took me in like a cocoon to transform me with a deep and rejuvenating sleep to emerge younger and happier the next day. Hmmm. Vacation and the perfect location make one heck of a combo for restoration of body, mind and spirit. Being a long-time meditator, I found many nooks and quiet spots in which to go inside and not be disturbed. Sun, the sound of the ocean, a breeze all made their way into my journey, but none overpowered anything. The pool was warm and I loved floating in it like a baby. The beach was private and sunny, but offered shade when needed. I will return to Villa Violeta. I think it would make a perfect retreat for a group of yogis.
