  • Great Family Vacation

    "We had a great vacation! This was our second time at this property and we again were thrilled with the location, weather, and service. The owners of the unit were excellent, accommodating, and responsive--we really could not have asked for better people to work with. The ground floor unit offered us so value as it provided easy access, just steps away to the pool, beach and restaurants. The staff were the same as the year before and have amazing attention to detail. We always had towels, a lounger set up by staff the way we wanted it, reading material, toys, and food/drink could be ordered and delivered within minutes. This is a great unit for a young family (we have a baby and a toddler), as well as for grandparents who also came with us on our vacation. The owners had a crib and child seat at the unit which saved us from lugging around extra equipment in the airport and they allowed us to use the equipment for no extra cost. The gym and spa were fantastic--we highly recommend the couples massage which came with champagne and chocolate strawberries. La Estancia is pristine. It is comparable to a Four Seasons, but much more affordable. The location is quiet, yet if you want more entertainment you can walk across to the Flamingo's building which is 1 minute away and you get full access to their activities and restaurants, included. Overall, just a great place and another stellar vacation that seems to be a guarantee at La Estancia. We would recommend and stay in this unit again, especially after meeting the owners and having such a pleasant experience."

  • Incredible location- can't wait to return!

    "I can't rave enough about your unit and Villa la Estancia! The websites for Villa La Estancia and the photos on vrbo do not do it justice. What an amazing, spacious, beautifully decorated and fully equipped place. Service was first class everywhere at the resort and the option to utilize the resort amenities next door was fantastic. The resort next door had a ton of activities for kids and several more restaurants. We utilized the restaurants but loved that our resort was a bit quieter and felt more upscale. Having this unit right by the pool on the main level was incredibly convenient. This was truly the best of both worlds with a vrbo rental at an upscale resort. Breakfast on our patio with my coffee and the sound of the ocean was wonderful. Your unit had everything imaginable and the whole family enjoyed the body boards! Melba was easy to work with and quick to respond to our requests. Once at the resort the concierge took care of everything else. We look forward to returning someday!"

  • A beautiful and relaxing stay

    "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."

  • Luxury accommodations, beautiful property

    "My family of 4 (kids 10 and 13) thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa La Estancia. Brad and Joey were great hosts and provided us with great information and tips prior to our arrival. Very helpful, thank you!! We loved the pool and jacuzzi area and spent every afternoon lounging around and ordering drinks from our favorite bartender, Lucio. :) The kids went back and forth between the beach, the pool and the Villa and loved having the freedom to choose. Our teen is in "teen mode" and sometimes he didn't want to leave the darkness of his room, AC, blackout curtains and his electronics and we felt perfectly safe letting him stay in the room while we explored the area. We had dinner in the hotel one night (so-so) and amazing dinners out a few nights in NV (La Laguna) and Bucerias (Karen's and Mark's). We also enjoyed eating at the pool bar/restaurant and room service was very good! Be sure to check out the gym and the spa, both are amazing and my treatment was excellent. Great experience renting from Brad and Joey...very responsive, lots of great tips and recommendations about the area, taxi information, restaurants, etc... The Villa itself has a fabulous layout, large living room with comfy furniture separating the Master and adjoining bedroom (w/2 Queens!). Plenty of room for us and the kids loved having their own "space" did we! I just can't say enough about how wonderful our trip was, from start to finish. Also, the staff at Villa La Estancia are so genuine, professional, helpful. Just great! We must plan a return trip and stay longer so we can explore and do a few things we ran out of time for: Sayulita for surfing and shopping, Dolphin Adventure, horseback riding... Thanks guys for helping make our trip so memorable, easy and comfortable. We'll be back!"
