"The Villa La Estancia is a modern and well maintained resort on a wonderful stretch of the Banderas Bay beach. If you're looking for a resort environment complete with attentive pool-side food and drink service, you can't do much better in the Puerto Vallarta area. The well appointed, clean, and very spacious unit and huge deck overlooking the ocean enabling a sunset view are things we really enjoyed. For what you get, we think it's great value. It's an easy 20 minute beach walk to Bucerias so Villa La Estancia is well situated. Really quiet in the evenings if you're looking for solitude. The owners were a pleasure to deal with. The kitchen was well appointed if you intend on eating in but the onsite restaurants serve quality food. We liked that potable water and ice was delivered directly from the fridge and removed the water hassle ever-present in Mexico. The beds were comfortable and the wifi service within the unit was completely first-world -- a requirement for us as we enjoy steaming Netflix in the evening and had to work while we were away. We'd absolutely consider going back! Thanks Bill and Janice."

"We stayed in condo 330 from mid-Oct to Mid-Dec and it was absolutely fabulous. We've rented several times from VRBO and have been pleased every time but have to say this condo is the best. Chaunna and Mike are gracious hosts and it was a pleasure meeting them. The ocean views are spectacular, all appliances are top of the line American brands, large flat screen TV has upgraded cable service, and best of all - a Weber grill on the furnished balcony. While we were there final connections were completed to provide Wifi access in the condos (previously it was only available at the pool area). Air conditioning units in both bedrooms and living room worked well, a relief in the first couple of weeks when there was still high humidity. The 20 liter bottle for the water cooler can be exchanged at the security gate for 30 pesos (little over $2). The two infinity pools were clean, comfortable and with steps or a ladder would be perfect. Bus stop is right across the street and the friendly security guards will call taxi's. Mega Supermarket is a 20 minute walk, as is the outskirts of Bucerias. We've been to Puerto Vallarta several times but fell in love with the Nuevo Vallarta/Bucerias area. Lots of great restaurants and outdoor activities. We'll be back next year!"

"We stayed in Rita's condo between March 7 to 21. We are 2 adult couples.
Neat, clean, spacious and up to date.
It has ALL the supplies that you'll ever going to need.
It's like staying at home; where you have all the supplies, accessories and conveniences.
Full size fridge and 4 burner stove. Microwave and coffee maker.
BBQ on the balcony. What a bonus! Used that a few times during our stay.
Flat screen tv, ipod stand.
Washer and dryer.
Internet speed ranges from "dial up speed" to fast. It's finicky!
Building: Looks a little worn. No need for concern.
Grounds: Well kept. 24 hour security.
Pool: 2 large ones and another by the beach for swimming laps. clean and well kept. No problems getting pool loungers, sun shelters with mattresses and pillows. Very quiet and laid back atmosphere.
Beach: Awesome! Sandy and not rocky. Not busy compared to neighboring hotels.
North side of Nuevo Vallarta bordering on Bucerias.
25 minute leisurely stroll to Mega (supermarket that has everything)
Taxi rides - just ask the security guards. Takes 2 minutes.
25 minute leisurely stroll to Bucerias (south side).
The location is very safe because you have to go through several security check points to get to the building.
Absolutely no concerns to your safety!
Owner of Condo:
Awesome to deal with.
Prompt in responding to questions or concerns.
I will absolutely rent from her again without hesitation!
Rita (owner) suggest a "pay it forward" to the next guest; which is a great idea! Example: when we arrived after a long plane ride, we wanted ice cold beer to quench our thirst. We found them in the fridge.
We liked the idea so much, we decided to "pay it forward" also to the next guest in a generous way.
Unlike timeshare where you have to dispose of everything before you leave. which is such a waste!"

"Our family and my parents had a tremendous 11 days stay over Christmas. Might be the best vacation ever! The accommodations were comfortable, clean and relaxing. Onsite manager was nice and owners very accommodating.
Plenty of room for everyone to have their space. I'm writing this as I plan my next stay.
If you like fishing go to Las Cruz to the harbor. $100 bucks get you in the fish and a day on the water. Buy fresh catch daily form the vendors at the dock. 1 buck small bus ride from Mega Store. 60 pesos for cab returning from Mega on food and beverage run. 15 pesos bus ride into Puerto Vallarta.
If you are not challenged by cooking for yourself you will love this place. What you have in your frig is what you have to eat. We filled ours up with great meals. You'll have fun and find your own adventures."
