About the property

Stunning 5 bedroom Villa, ocean views, close to sandy beach w/ private chef

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 a renowned integrative medical doctor. The owners 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.

Whatever you want, just let him know and he will make it happen! He is a local and knows all the best activities and vendors to go with. He speaks fantastic English.

NO PROFIT MARK-UP ON FOOD & BEVERAGES: Don't worry about stopping at the grocery store right after you arrive. You tell us what food, snacks, and liquor you want initially stocked at the villa for your arrival, and it'll be there when you arrive. Our staff will purchase all food & beverage items that you will need for your group based upon your exact requests and simply present to you the receipts at no mark-up. There is absolutely no profit mark-up on food & beverage purchases the staff will make on your behalf. So, enjoying food & drinks at our Puerto Vallarta Villa is very economical, typically averaging just about $25.00 per person per day for food (not including liquor). If you want an alcoholic beverage, we'll buy you a bottle and make the drinks. The staff will simply collect the receipts and present them to you at the end of your stay. Transportation costs for shopping is additional.

iPOD/iPHONE SPEAKERS: There are iPOD/iPHONE player systems in each grand suite and in the pool area.

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

Patrick McCall and Brooke Moran purchased this villa in 2007

Why Patrick McCall and Brooke Moran chose Mismaloya

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.

What makes this villa unique


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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“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!

Sandy beaches are located within a very short walking distance to Villa Los Arcos. Hiking is great. Ask Alfonso about the Mismaloya to Las Animas hike. Start your journey at Mismaloya Bay - a 7 minute walk south of the Villa (where Arnold Schwarzenegger's movie 'The Predator' and Richard Burton's movie 'Night of the Iguana' were filmed). you jump into a ponga boat and then your boat guide will drop you off at the trail head in Boca de Tomatlan. The BEST 3.5 mile hike you will ever do. At the end of the hike you can enjoy a fantastic beach side lunch (best coconut shrimp in the world and Margaritas) and then take a ponga boat back to Mismaloya Bay. Villa Los Arcos is also a proud 'partner' of the Puerto Vallarta Bontanical Gardens - a very beautiful place - it is a must see adventure. The gardens offer a fantastic lunch, including gourmet pizza! Also try Los Veranos Canopy Zip lining. The BEST!

Fun, relaxing, amazing

  • 5 of 5

Great stay at Villa los Arcos. Convenient to the airport (~30 min), amazing oceanfront location, all en-suite bedrooms facing the water, delicious meals and excellent service. Alfonso and the crew took great care of us. We often saw sting rays and even a whale from the house. Kayaked to los arcos from Mismaloya Beach, took a hike along the coast, went out to dinner one night, but other than that, we were more than happy to relax at the house. Most destinations like restaurants or old Vallarta require a cab or the bus, which did not bother us, since we didn’t really want to leave the house anyway. Highly recommend.

This is hands down the best vacation rental in all of Puerto Vallarta! Don't be a fool like I was and spend an entire week researching every single house on every single vacation rental site. THIS IS THE ONE! Brooke was absolutely amazing to work with via email throughout all of the initial planning stages, and Poncho the house manager was incredibly attentive and helpful in assisting us with everything from transportation, meals at the house, and excursions in Puerto Vallarta. Incredibly grateful for the experience and cannnot wait to return!

A true dream!

  • 5 of 5

Some of my friends, family, and I stayed here for my birthday weekend. It was true perfection because every detail was accounted for. Brooke helped take care of all questions, concerns, etc. before we stayed and the house staff took over from there ensuring we were taken care of. The food, view, drinks, and on and on were all amazing. If you are looking to splurge for a trip or just like to enjoy a slice of luxury then this property is for you. Get in the pool to wash all worries away while the staff makes your drink and when your night is ended you won't regret falling asleep in the Hammock stare gazing. The owner joked that we wouldn't want to leave and we didn't. Thank you Villa Los Arcos staff for making my birthday memorable.

Villa Los Arcos is a destination to remember. We had our wedding on the bottom deck. Our ceremony held around 20 guests. The house chef prepared every meal during our stay and it was DELICIOUS! Alfanso (the houseman) was great and extremely friendly. All members of the staff were helpful and made our wedding beautiful.

The villa itself is breathtaking. Every room is private and has its own bathroom. There is not one bad room in the house. You will enjoy overlooking the beautiful ocean from each and every room.

I cannot say thank you enough to the house manager, Brooke. She is quick to respond to emails and acknowledges the small details. Every step in planning our stay was taken care of by her. My husband and I arrived in MX with zero stress thanks to Brooke and her planning skills.

Thank you Villa Los Arcos for sweeping us off our feet!

Amazing location for small/medium-sized wedding. Stunning views. We LOVED it!!!

  • 5 of 5

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.
