When can we come back?!

  • 5 of 5

The grounds surrounding the Villa are breathtaking! The Villa itself is impeccably clean. Absolutely phenomenal! The pictures do not do it justice. The kindest most welcoming staff took excellent care of us!

Great stay!

  • 4 of 5

The property was really nice, lots of space, infinity pool, great staff that cooked immediate meals! House is about a 15 minute walk to the beach, and house is at the top of a very steep hill that cabs struggle to get to and difficult to walk up. Rooms have a/c and really nice but living room does not and could get humid at times. Overall house was really nice and accommodated 8 people easily.

Unrivaled Attention To Detail

  • 5 of 5

As a professional event planner, my job is to ask the tough questions so that my guests’ experience matches my pursuit for perfection. Now that my wife and I were planning to host a couples getaway, I needed to ask some tough questions as we couldn’t let our friends down. After each call and email to Richard, I would receive the same message “You need not worry about a thing". While I had read the great reviews, I was a bit suspicious but at some point, I had to submit and hope for the best. My trepidation disappeared immediately upon arriving at Villa Francisco and being greeted by his concierge, Toni. Prior to our arrival, Toni had graciously and efficiently assisted us with our arrival transfers, restaurant recommendations, transportation to our golf outings and stocking the Villa with all our requested favorite foods and beverages. After meeting Toni and taking a quick look inside, we realized it looked every bit as good as the photos. It was immaculate with beautiful furnishings and was exactly as we had hoped as we toured the bedrooms, kitchen, living room and pool area. At that point, we were greeted by Chef Tina, the head chef who chatted with us about our meal selections for the week. We gave her some ideas and she offered up some house specialties and we decided on a plan for the week. After our guests all arrived, we settled into the pool and outdoor cabana for margaritas and appetizers, hosted by Richard. You could tell how proud he was of his Villa and it was a great way for him to meet all our guests before he disappeared for the week so we could be on our own. Dinner that night put all our culinary worries to rest. Chef Tina and her team put together an absolutely amazing meal and little did we know that each and every meal they prepared would be better than the last, all featuring fresh local ingredients artfully prepared to match the finest big city restaurant. Whether it was their handmade ravioli, pre-golf breakfast burritos, surf and turf or our Mexican fiesta, it was just perfect. However, it is worth noting that the highlight of our dining experience was the presentation of a whole 11-pound red snapper cooked to perfection. During our stay, all of our needs were happily accommodated. From runs to the store to washing our laundry, every detail was covered. So, while I will continue to ask all the hard questions, I have already booked a return engagement and Richard can rest easy knowing I won't ask any more questions!

Owner's Response: Rob, Thank you for the review. In all of our time of booking our villas, we have never had such an active group and one that seemed to be having a great time the entire time. We are all very happy(staff included ) to see our guests enjoying the property, food and the activities as your group did. We look forward to hosting your next trip in our other 5 star property, Villa Santa Fe. We promise not to let you down. Regards, Richard & staff

Unforgettable family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

It was bliss the moment we arrived and throughout our stay. The staff, including the owner Richard were amazing. We were greeted with a beautiful spread of appetizers and Richard made us some awesome pina coladas and margaritas. All of the staff made us feel welcome and comfortable the moment we stepped in. We celebrated a family member's birthday and they went out of their way to make a special dinner and a flan cake. One of our favorite luxuries was having chef service. It allowed the family to focus on each other and have fun. We didn't have to worry about grocery shopping, splitting up the cooking duties or worrying about what to make. We sat back and let the chefs do their thing. The meals were better than a restaurant - 5 star quality. We woke up every day to fresh coffee and an awesome spread of breakfast options. The staff even noticed that we were drinking quite a bit of coffee and the next day brought in a bigger coffee pot for us. How awesome is that! One of the highlights of our day was anticipating what that night's dinner would be! Chef Tina quickly became our youngest son's buddy (macho man). She made all of us feel very special and well taken care of. There was plenty of space and plenty to keep all of us entertained and happy. Beach access is only 10 min away (down hill). Cab rides for 4, into town was around $5-7 USD. We can't say enough great things about the staff and our overall experience. We would definitely recommend staying here, and we hope to come back in the near future. Thank you Richard, Chef Tina, Toni and all of the other wonderful staff!

Fantastic villa - 5 Stars all the way!!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic vacation! Total 5 star experience from the accommodations, view, food and staff! Richard was an amazing help in guiding us to the right places and all sorts of tips that made the trip even better. Chef Tina and Chef David prepared the most amazing meals that we can't stop talking about. The views were incredible and we loved being in this area of PV. Close hike to the beach and cheap taxi rides. Every bedroom was beautiful and the villa was immaculate! Tonie did an amazing job setting up our day of relaxation. We recommend the massage treatments at the villa! Entire staff was top notch!! We will definitely be back! Thank you Richard, Tonie, Tina, David and your staff for the most relaxed and memorable vacation!

a perfect place

  • 5 of 5

we absolutely loved Villa Francisco. wonderful location, amazing ocean views, and the *best* staff. tina, the chef, was amazing - every meal was memorable and the presentation was superb.

we had a group of ten, and it never felt crowded. our best days were spent sitting by the infinity pool enjoying the view!

the location, like most of the good villas, is up a steep hill, but still only about a ten minute walk from the beach and town. getting a cab when we didn't feel like walking was very easy.

we hope to be back at Villa Francisco very soon!
