About David Delgado

Our family currently lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico and previously lived in the San Francisco Bay Area. We have two boys ages, 25 and 23. We travel extensively and our very active. We enjoy, hiking, skiing, surfing and are avid runners.

Why David Delgado chose Flamingos

We purchased our home in Mexico, and specifically in the Puerto Vallarta region, because we love the Mexican people and we love the weather. Puerto Vallarta has a similar latitude to the Hawaiian Islands. Villa La Estancia provides us with full 5 star resort amenities and we have 24/7 monitoring of our home by the staff at the resort. Our location, which is 15-20 miles north of Puerto Vallarta allows to be on the beautiful Flamingos Beach and be close to several wonderful small Mexican towns such as Bucerias, La Cruz, Punta Mita and Sayulita. It also allows to go into Puerto Vallarta to enjoy the offerings of the bigger city.

What makes this condo unique

Villa La Estancia is the only luxury property with only 135 villas with full ownership. This allows all guests to have the exclusivity of a small private, luxury resort with 5 star customer service.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Dave,

Stayed at unit # 1303 from January 2-15th/2011. It was our second stay at Dave’s place at Villa La Estancia and to our surprise we enjoyed it more than last year, didn’t expect we could. We had both sides A&B again this year and it really is a great set up for a family. We park the kids in side B and my wife and I really have all the privacy of our own suite. Brilliant set up! Dave did some remodeling in the kitchen and it looks great (not that it really needed it). The kitchen has everything you need if you’re like us, make breakfast for the family and enjoy the great pool side restaurant for lunch. In the evenings we would venture out to the nearby fishing village (great selection of restaurants) or jump in a cab to Puerto Vallarta and enjoy the restaurant selection in town (check out PiPi’s near the boardwalk, fantastic! Look it up). The Spa facilities at the property are world class. As good as you will find anywhere. Sandra thought the packages deals were well priced (compared to Vancouver a bargain) and Sandra thought the spa staff were great. I’m more of an early morning gym guy. Get a little workout in before breakfast. I was usually the only one in the gym and the equipment is professional grade and barely used. Dave’s unit is in a great location, close to the beach, great patio with a perfect view of the sunset. I don’t think it comes as any surprise to people that know this property that Villa La Estancia was just recognized as a Trip Advisor Choice 2011 Winner “Top 10 Luxury Resorts in the Caribbean & Mexico”.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 6 nights after spending the first half of our trip in Bucerias, and we really enjoyed it. The location was great on the 3rd floor very close to the pool. High enough to get a nice view...but super easy to run upstairs form the pool. This is one of the few properties that is within walking distance of Bucerias if you are up for it. (A bit of a long walk for young kids). There are also several good restaurants in Nuevo easy to get to from here. Highly recommend it!

Family Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

This villa was awesome...just as advertised. It is literally steps from the water's edge. My 5 and 6 yr olds were in heaven. My wife won't stop talking about it. The resort is beautiful. Great location. Can't imagine staying anywhere else in Nuevo Vallarta next trip down there. Owner was great to work with. Thank you!

Wonderful Resort

  • 5 of 5

This 3rd floor Villa has a beautiful view of the ocean and the pool area. It takes seconds to travel to the pool and beach. The owner gave us a great list of places to eat and we did a few and were not disappointed. Walked to Bucerias, drove to Sayulita and also a night into old PV. Great location. You might want to never come home!!

We have rented this condo from David twice. We like the third floor location because you can run up the stairs and it's closer to the beach. The condo is large with plenty of room. We have stayed at this resort 4 times and been to Mexico 8 times. This is the best resort we've enjoyed. The beach is wide and you can walk for miles. We like staying at a condo resort because we can eat breakfast and lunch in the condo, then go into Bucerias for dinner. A trip to the Mega Supermarket is fun and provides all the necessities. We have always felt safe. David provides a list of recommended restaurants and excursions. A few of our favorites restaurants are La Laguna, Karens, Sandrinas and Toscano Mio.

Another great stay at Villa La Estancia

  • 5 of 5

Another great stay at Villa La Estancia. Unit 1303 was perfect, great view of the ocean, close to the pool area and very comfortable bed. The owner of this unit was professional, responsive and trustworthy. I would highly recommend renting from them. The resort is fantastic and the small town of Bucerias has great restaurants. This is one of the best stays in the PV area.

Awesome Resort, Beautiful and Very Clean Condo

  • 4 of 5

My wife, 4 month old daughter and I had an awesome time at Villa Estancia and at the owners's condo. It's super easy to get there from the airport, and within an hour of landing, we were at the amazing pool. Service at the resort was fantastic. The pictures of the condo don't do it justice.

I found the resort food to be mediocre. It's pricey for what it is. That said, everything else was amazing, and the condo allowed us to cook some of our own meals. There's a nearby Walmart with a good food selection.

The owner was great to work with and fast to respond to emails. He made this an easy rental process.

We'll definitely be back.
