Property description

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.

DRIVING DIRECTIONS: From the airport, take the main road into Centro. Go through central and across the bridge, over The Real Cuale River. After the bridge, you will be on Ignacio Vallarta. Go straight until you come to Basillo Badilo. Turn left and go to the stoplight and turn right. This is the road that goes to Mismaloya & Boca de Tomatlan; it is called Carretera de Barra de Navidad “Mexico 200”. Approximately 1/2 block from this turn will be a Pemex gas station on right-hand side. Continue on, you will be heading south; the road has many curves. There are several side-roads that are unmarked. This stretch of road is approximately 9 kms from Pemex to Villa Los Arcos which is just north of Mismaloya Bay. Watch on the right-hand side for the los arcos preserve. You can't miss it - it is a four small island rock formation. Once you past the los arcos preserve you will travel about another one-half km. You will come to a curve and on that curve is Villa Los Arcos. The villa's name is on a beautiful sign by the highway. The address number is 4320.

ARRIVAL INSTRUCTIONS: When you arrive at the Puerto Vallarta airport, take the airport taxi to Villa Los Arcos. The address is 10.9 Km. South in the colonia called Mismaloya Bay area. Leave your bags at the door for the houseman, Alfonso, aka Pancho, who will help you with your luggage and bring you a nice cold drink.

PHONE The local telephone number is 228-0470, as dialed from Vallarta. To dial from the U.S. call 714 453-9083 or 011-52 (322)228 0470. Long Distance calls to the USA and Canada are free using the Vonage phone. You can also receive calls at the villa from the US by having people call you at (714) 453-9083.

INTERNET The house has wireless internet and a printer so bring your laptop. To access the internet put in the code as set forth on a small sign above the outdoor office computer which is by the pool area.

POOL: If you want the pool temperature higher or lower, the houseman will make the necessary adjustments. Please use the beach towels rather than room towels.

SECURITY: The street entrance door should be kept closed & locked.

WATER: Although Puerto Vallarta’s water is supposed to be potable, the Villa has its own state of the art treatment plant and all the water is safe to drink as well as the ice.

IPOD Systems There are IPOD player systems in each grand suite and in the pool area.

TV The flat screen television and Dish satellite tuner are located in the den off of the pool area next to the outdoor office. Alfosno will be able to show you how to work the systems. They are easy to work

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: My name is Patrick McCall, I am a lawyer by day and a pilot at heart. I am the proud father of 7 and married to Dr. Leigh Erin Conneally, a world renowned holistic health doctor. I spend my free time skiing, hiking, flying & traveling. My wife and I have owned and rented our Villa since 2007 and visit every chance we get. We put a lot of time, energy and effort into making sure our Villa is in top shape so that our guests will have an unforgettable stay. My daughter Brittany McCall manages our Villa and lives in San Francisco. She is an artist, designer, and entrepreneur. She too loves holisitc health, surfing and traveling. We like to provide our guests with a luxurious and relaxing experience.

We live by the golden rule and expect our guests to do the same.

Why the Owner Chose Mismaloya (Mismaloya, Jalisco, Mexico):
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
VILLA LOS ARCOS WAS FEATURED IN THE SPRING 2014 AISLE STYLE MAGAZINE BY REIGN MAGAZINE AS ONE OF THE BEST INTIMATE WEDDING DESTINATIONS. Movie stars and other notable celebrities have routinely made this villa this vacation destination. Villa Los Arcos was one hundred percent renovated. Everything and anything imaginable, including very high end furnishings, beautiful art, gourmet kitchen, high end appliances, flat screen televisions, infrared sauna, salt pool, top of the line water purification system, beautiful granite counter tops, stone flooring, renovated bathrooms, deluxe posterpedic mattresses, lounge chairs, beautiful ocean deck and garden [plus many, many more]. This Villa is one hundred percent contained - all of the enjoyment you will ever need or want. PLEASE NOTE: during the rainy season please be careful of the following- Slippery floors and power surges that play havoc on the electrical which effect the Internet, phone lines and air conditioning. We apologize but we are at the mercy of these things which are beyond our control.
