About the Property

Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-10)

This spacious (almost 10,000 sq. ft.), walled Tuscan stone villa overlooking Banderas Bay and the beautifully charming downtown Puerto Vallarta, is one of the rare private treasures where you can EASILY walk from your front gate to fabulous gourmet restaurants or funky joints surrounding the Romantic Zone and Old Town, the Blue Chairs of Los Muertos Beach, and the downtown Malecon.

Return to your huge pool deck, surrounded by total privacy, and have your own chef, access to an in-house masseuse & spa amenities, Meditate with private Yoga, high speed wireless Internet, Netflix, free long distance & cable TV. This is a walled, private estate.

Staff of 2-3 is included in rental. That means all needs are taken care of. You can have poolside cocktail service at your whim. The staff is personable, speaks English, and has been trained to be both invisible when need-be and by your side when needed.

The Villa was designed so that each bedroom has a comfortable, private area. Guests can choose to retire to a soul enriching space all their own, or join the larger house, for fun and festivities.

This delightful, elegant home was featured on THE HGTV network and for years was a favorite on the Vallarta Home tour. Think PortoFino on the Mexican Riviera.

Car: Not Necessary

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.

 

Owner info

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).
