Villa Los Arcos is located just north of Mismaloya Bay on the water overlooking the infamous los arcos nature preserve, approximately 15 minutes south of exciting old ('viejo') town Puerto Vallarta.
This is truly a villa wherein the “ocean is inside the villa.” Also, two of the bedroom suites are actually built into the granite cliff which many nature experts say provides an awesome energizing experience.
Incorporating modern architecture with authentic Italian décor, this villa offers a view that will keep you spellbound! From the moment you walk through the front door and hear the rhythm of the sea and see the palapas swaying to the rhythm over the gentle ocean, you will feel the calming and soothing sea breeze and your heart and mind will truly be on vacation! Look again and you may see whales, dolphins, large sea turtles, manta rays or other sea life swimming just below the villa. Then, look again at sunset. Breathtaking.
Villa Los Arcos has been designed with the health conscious in mind. The villa is owned and operated by the renowned integrative medical doctor, Leigh Erin Connealy M.D., the Director of the Center for New Medicine and her esteemed husband Patrick A. McCall, Esq., CEO. They have integrated a 'spa' and 'wellness' atmosphere into Villa Los Arcos. Many of the healthy amenities include one of the best “four-step” water purification systems in the world, an infrared sauna that provides healing waves, natural salt purification system for the infinity pool (no chlorine!) and a breathtaking air-conditioned exercise room with elliptical cardiac machines (exercise to views of the ocean and the Los Arcos nature preserve).
If you desire, organic foods are offered as well. No other villa in Puerto Vallarta offers all of the amenities that are offered at Villa Los Arcos. In fact, once you have “tasted” the many different types of succulent fruits and vegetables offered and selected by the Villa Los Arcos’ staff you will immediately find them simply irresistible.
Villa Los Arcos has five complete distinct master bedroom suites, each with its own full bathroom. Every suite has an uncompromising view of the Los Arcos nature preserve and the ocean. Also, all of the suites are duly appointed with luxury furniture. No detail has been ignored. In addition, all of the beds have tempur-pedic mattresses so as to insure the ultimate in comfort and a very good night sleep. Each suite is an absolute joy to stay in.
On the main level of Villa Los Arcos is the ocean-front terrace which offers a 'healthy' sparkling infinity pool, with complete privacy. Slip into the pool day or night and watch the ocean surrounding you. Now this is really relaxing! Have one of Villa Los Arcos’ staff serve you your favorite drink on the terrace or anywhere inside Villa Los Arcos [try the Mango Margarita!]... the spectacular view is always there.
Then, you must enjoy our private “sun” deck which is located just below the Villa. The deck is within feet above the ocean waves. To access the deck you will travel down 102 steps through a romantic garden setting. You will see that the sun deck is large enough for several people to sunbath or socialize, or have an intimate dinner while watching the awesome sunsets, or even large enough to hold a romantic wedding. For wedding planning purposes, the sun deck is large enough for at least 40 people (see, pictures below). The stairs and deck are also “romantically” lighted so that it can be accessed after night fall. The sun deck also offers 110 volts for your needs.
Entertainment. Please inquire of us as to your entertainment needs. Catering, music or musical bands can be arranged. Spa treatments. We are also excited to offer at a very reasonable cost some of the best “private” spa treatments including all types of massages, facials and manicures. Our professionals will come to the Villa at a time set by you. They are highly recommended.

Patrick McCall and Brooke Moran purchased this villa in 2007
The villa is nestled in the tropical jungle area just south of old town Puerto Vallarta. The villa is located just below where Arnold Schwarzenegger's movie, The Predator and just adjacent to where Richard Burton's movie, The Night of the Iguana were filmed. The property sits on a granite point directly on the ocean. The views are at least 270 degrees that will never be obstructed. There is simply no obstruction by any other villa. Villa Los Arcos scales four and half stories of granite splendor above the ocean. All suites have a breath taking view of the ocean and the infamous los arcos preserve [special rock formations a few hundred feet off of the coast which is Mexico national preserve]. The breath taking waves crash just below the villa which can be easily accessed by our large ocean entertainment deck [perfect for a wedding or romantic dinner]. The marine/animal life below the villa is spectacular - mantarays, whales, fish galore, pelicans. birds, sea turtles, just to name a few! You can snorkel or kayak just below the villa.

“Off the hook! Everything exceeded my expectations: the home is beautiful with fabulous architectural detail and furnishings, floor plan ideal for personal and/or party time and the location a perfect blend between the outskirts and a 20 minute drive to the city. Equally impressive and key to our enjoyment was the staff: Chey the chef continued to amaze with traditional Mexican meals, Berta maintained the living spaces and spoiled us with fresh towels, sheets and laundry while Alfonso (Poncho) was the resident concierge coordinating daily excursions and made sure everything ran smooth. Los Arcos is off the hook!.... One of our favorite elements was the ability to chill poolside for a few hours, kayak for an hour, hike along the ocean and bounce into town all in one day. Easy access to town for shopping and dining while residing seaside away from all the bustle was perfect.”
Please pass along my thanks and congrats to your fabulous team!
Villa Los Arcos is a dream. As soon as you walk in the door you immediately feel relaxed and at home. It was particularly hot when we stayed there in July, and we were handed cooled towels and offered margaritas immediately upon arrival. We had looked at the photos a million times during the planning of our wedding, and amazing as they are, they can't capture the lovely atmosphere and the scope of the magnificent view. Brooke, the owner, was very responsive to all of our wedding related questions, answering promptly and providing helpful suggestions. And we cannot sing the praises of the staff at the villa enough. Chuy's cooking was delicious and was tailored to various specific dietary needs, and Alfonso helped with EVERYTHING. He served food, offered drinks, interfaced with vendors coming for the wedding, set up tables/chairs/decorations, he even offered to go get his own amplifier when we were worried we wouldn't have one (but no need, the villa has one!), and all with a friendly smile and positive attitude. Our wedding had 42 guests, which fit perfectly. And our guests are still raving about the location. It can't be topped. We would highly recommend Villa Los Arcos for a beautiful destination wedding.
Thank you to the staff of Villa Los Arcos. This was truly one of the most memorable vacations that I have shared with my family. Every bedroom has its own bathroom, balcony and is on the water! The salt water pool (yes, no chlorine) overlooks Los Arcos Preserve. The villa is located right on the water! Chewy and Alfonso are a great team and made sure that we had everything that we needed. We never felt the need to go to dinner since Chewy's cooking and the service of Alfonso was fantastic. We are already planning our next trip to Villa Los Arcos. Many thanks to the staff.
Six kids and six adults stayed in the Villa from Feb 26- March 7th. What a fantastic place, from the moment we walked in and we received a warm welcome from Alfonso, Chuey, and Raina to the last day at the Villa, it was a holiday to remember. It was everything the photos and reviews said it would be. Incredible views, excellent meals, drinks, a pool that we spent many hours in, and the magnificent sunsets from the Villa, we all enjoyed our time away from winter - albeit it has been a mild one. The staff went out of their way to accommodate our every need. Berta would come and makeup our beds, laundry was done, and the Villa was clean at all times. The meals were of local flare and the groceries were inexpensive. I was impressed with how Chuey would ask what we want for lunch (right after we finished breakfast) and she would go into town after breakfast and lunch would be served by 1:30. Then onto an incredible supper.
Alfonso went above and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable and interesting. We learned a lot about the area and he took us on many a hike to waterfalls, trails through the bush, and a very memorable hike from Boca Da Tomatlan to Los Animas. The Mismaloya area has a lot to offer. Great people, a nice beach, and awesome restaurants. We went to Tony's and Juans for meals and always enjoyed the food. We hired Charlie and his Panga for the day and were able to get in some snorkeling - although it was high surf for most of the time we were there. I highly recommend his services. Massages from Jessica and her staff on the beach in Mismaloys is something that I highly suggest you do - very relaxing. We intend on going back, great place, staff, and location!

My family and I have been very fortunate to have traveled to multiple countries throughout the world and always stay in 5 star resorts, villas or hotels. Our experience at Villa Los Arcos ranks up in the top places we've ever stayed. If there was a Michelin rating system for places in PV, Villa Los Arcos would be at the top. The staff, the views, the food, the atmosphere, the surroundings...everything was perfect. There are endless things to do there if you're athletic or just want to relax. We essentially had anything and everything at our finger tips. The mornings began with the best mango I think I've ever had which were accompanied by other amazing fresh fruit. Huevos rancheros, yes. Breakfast burritos filled with eggs and chorizo, no problemo. How about a wood burning pizza oven where you can choose to make you're own pizzas with your family and friends if you so desire? The most complicated decision was letting them know what ingredients we'd like to put on the pizzas. Fresh mango margarita's? Si amigo. How about a couples massage overlooking the water while waves crash along the rocks just below you? Once you go you'll understand what I'm talking about. I wish I could put this place in a bottle and bring it home but unfortunately I couldn't. What we can and most certainly will do is return to Villa Los Arcos so we can share this experience with other families and friends. I've already started looking at flights and dates. Muchas gracias!!!
I consider myself a well seasoned Puerto Vallarta "Private Luxury Villa Rental" aficionado having rented 8 different villas over the course of 6 years now. I've made it an annual tradition to experience a new private villa every August in PV, some years visiting more than once. Each villa has offered a different location, view, service, chef and overall vibe. I've experienced sleek and modern 12,000 sq. foot villas boasting 8 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms to smaller, luxuriously appointed 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom villas with incredible art collections. Each villa experience has had its pro's and con's - from wild animals foraging for food in the kitchen late at night to amazing settings but miserably disappointing chefs. I'm happy to say that Villa Los Arcos was one of the BEST experiences I've ever had in all of my PV luxury villa experiences - and I'm a HARD critic!!!
First and foremost, hands down, the staff was/is AMAZING - Alfonso, Chuey and Becka! Alfonso, the house manager, kicked my friends' butts with early morning hikes through the mountains, waterfalls and natural pools - and they LOVED it! Every evening before departing he would ask "Do you want tomorrow morning's hike easy, medium or hard?" For those of us who wanted nothing to do with a morning hike whatsoever, we awoke to coffee by the pool followed by an incredible "Chuey-made" breakfast - absolutely delicious! EVERY meal that Chuey created was incredible - and that's saying A LOT!!! She is simply amazing!
We wanted to rent jet-skis for an afternoon and Alfonso arranged to have 4 jet-skis DELIVERED and WAITING FOR US on the water at the dock below the house!!! We simply hopped on and took off... Incredible!
The list of positives about Villa Los Arcos goes on and on... All I can say is that our experience was absolutely wonderful and I would whole-heartedly recommend it to any of my closest family and friends. It was a blissful, beautiful, relaxing, carefree, delicious, pampered, satisfying experience! Treat yourself and experience it for yourself!
Our experience could not have been improved! We took our six children and a son-in-law and had the most wonderful time. Alfonso made all of our "dreams" come true--we went snorkeling, scuba diving, night diving for lobster, surfing, beach horseback riding, zip-lining, tequila tasting, hiking, fishing, swimming, kayaking, rode the bus into town, visited the zoo and thoroughly enjoyed Chuey's delicious meals and being in their beautiful home. One of my favorite memories was going to sleep and waking up to the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks below our incredible bedroom that was built right into the rocks. I couldn't wait to open up the shutter doors in the morning to look out and watch the the sky turn every shade of blue against the backdrop of the Los Arcos rocks. Many, many thanks to the precious staff and the owners for a perfect family vacation.
The villla is located 10.9 km south of old town Puerto Vallarta on Highway 200 - about 1/4 mile north of Mismaloya Bay. The villa is very easy to find. The local phone number for the villa is 228-0470. At the airport simply tell the taxi driver that you are going to 'Villa Los Arcos, Mismaloya.' Almost all of the drivers known about the villa.
