Casa Ileana sits above the Romantic Zone and Playa Los Muertos Beach, a simple walk down the hill but set back enough to enjoy complete privacy with huge trees and rain forest. For restaurants, Panchos Tacos on Basillio Badillo Street is heaven-in-a-tortilla (ask for the 'Gringa')! A little out-of-the way joint called El Tacon on Carranza Street makes seafood burritos--best seafood ANYWHERE. Great pizza at Los Muertos Brew Pub--add the drunken onions to any pizza. Beyond that amazing jungle canopy tours, sailing, more restaurants, great walking. It is THE perfect location in Vallarta.
Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: Award winning television journalists Jon & Sylvia have traveled the world and bring that sensibility and experience to this lovingly renovated stone villa. We've tried to make this home, modern, but keeping the old Mexico ambience--so you feel the true spirit of this generous country. We regularly host CEO's, media personalities, families & major tour book editors. This is an elegant HOME... not a showcase and not a 'rental property'. When you stay here, you feel you're in one of the finest homes in the world looking at one of the best views on Earth. We love it, we hope you do, too.
Why the Owner Chose Alta Vista, Puerto Vallarta, Jal., Mexico:
We were sailing down the Mexican coast after 9 months at sea and pulled into Puerto Vallarta for the hurricane season. As a curiosity we started looking at the charming old homes downtown. Walking through the hills of Vallarta we saw this amazing stone villa looking out over the city, bay & ocean. We literally said, wouldn't that be a cool place to live. The next day, we found it was for sale. The minute we walked up the stairs and into the main living quarters, we were sold. Literally. Coincidentally, nearly every person who walks into this home has the same reaction.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The principal benefits are views, service, privacy, and location. The layout of the home is designed to give each bedroom it's own private rest space, for the times when a guest wants to get away from even his friends. read a book; take a nap; swing in the hammock. Yet, when it's time to come together, the indoor-outdoor living makes it inviting. Above all, this home is one of the only big villas where you can WALK down into town within minutes. So if a restaurant urge strikes (and there are loads of great eateries nearby), you walk out the gate and you're there (or the beachfront, too)! We can arrange airport pickup and staff can direct you with any help you may need (and can get huge discounts on tours and packages).
