A lovely Mexican Villa
We brought our family to PV and spent 7 nights at this lovely villa. All of our adult children were very happy with the place. It was very comfortable, well appointed and had a killer location. The owner and staff were super helpful and Christina’s cooking was amazing. This is charming Mexico at its best.
We are so tickled to hear this! Our staff takes great pride in seeing what our guests need and then doing whatever it takes to make that happen. We are blessed to live in one of the most desirable spots in Mexico. We hope to see you again!
Casa Ileana is a very special place. Cristina runs the home and is a top chef.
If you are taking a trip to Puerto Vallarta and want to live the good life - this is the place to stay.
An amazing villa! Christine and the staff are outstanding! Incredible property and super clean! Location is fabulous! Perffect for couples traveling together or multi generation as well. We will be back!
Cannot say enough about the staff!!! Loved it!!
Beautiful Piece of Heaven with Stunning Views
One of the nicest properties we have ever stayed at! We have been blessed with the ability to travel and have stayed in nice places. Casa Ileana in Puerto Vallarta is one of the finest! Very spacious home with five bedrooms and five bathrooms. Great pool that overlooks the city. Stunning views of the beach and city. The staff is exceptional and provides everything you need for your stay. Thinking of going in town for dinner, the Casa has a tremendous 5 star chef that makes dining delightful! Would recommend the Casa for your next vacation. Great for couples or family celebrations! Stayed multiple times and already planning our next visit!
We love hearing all feedback, but this kind makes our hearts sing.
Our chef, Cristina, has been delighting our guests for 18 years! Each client, as he or she departs, threatens to take her home with them. Her menu is varied to include traditional Mexican & other, but all can be classified, "gourmet".(Her Four Seasons training shows) Of particular joy to people is the way the staff notes small details like, "guest #2 removed onions from the dish". The next day that guest will find that no onions will be on his/her plate.
Every detail is important, because every vacation is important!
Thanks for the kind words!
Spectacular property and even more spectacular staff.
Absolutely gorgeous property, exceptionally well-maintained by an incredible staff. Property manager and chef Christina made for one of the most memorable vacations we've ever had. Every meal was exceptional, and her attention to every detail of our week made for a truly relaxing, easy-going experience from start to finish.
Thanks so much Chris! Cristina has an uncanny knack for seeing the little things: one day, she'll see that someone in the group doesn't like onions, and the next day, that person won't have onions on his plate; she'll overhear someone say they wish they had thought to buy a Coca Cola, and a few minutes later, a coke with ice will be handed over.
Vacations are important..and they often come down to the little things.
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.

jon duncanson purchased this Villa in 1999
Why jon duncanson chose Romantic Zone
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 moment 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.
What makes this Villa unique
The principal benefits are views, service, location & privacy. 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 or her friends or family. Read a book, take a nap, swing in the hammock. Yet, when it's time to come together, the indoor-outdoor living makes everything inviting. Above all, this home is one of the only big villas where you can WALK down into town and Los Muertos Beach 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).
