Why Ryan chose Nuevo Vallarta

We have been coming to Puerto Vallarta and other destinations in Mexico for 25+ years and there is no place like Nueva Vallarta. Downtown can get overcrowded and the commute is lengthy due to city traffic. The North Shore offers a variety of places to visit with a relaxing and safe atmosphere. The villa truly feels like a vacation home and the staff is very friendly.

What makes this villa unique

We recently modified our villa to incorporate the front entry with unit A. The entry door now adds a greater element of privacy and expands the size of the dining room and kitchen. This is a great feature with families that have children sleeping in unit B.

Guestbook comments from the manager

omg we had an absolute blast!! What a fabulous place to stay. I looked at probably a hundred rentals and contacted fifteen people, but I can't imagine any place nicer than yours! I am exhausted right now or I would go on, but seriously...we have you to thank for a relaxing and incredible enjoyable vacation. Mucho gusto!

Beautiful slice of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in this area of Mexico and staying at Villa La Estancia and it did not disappoint. In fact, we are already thinking of planning a return trip and I am not one to typically go to the same vacation destination twice. This villa was the perfect place for our family of five including my husband, twin 12-year-old girls and a 9-year-old boy. After being greeted with a glass of champagne and hand massages, I knew we picked a gem! Our condo was so spacious with huge master bedroom, modern kitchen, bar with stools which was perfect for breakfast, a dining area and great room area. The washer and dryer came in handy too. There are sliding glass doors off both bedrooms and the main living area that lead to a huge terrace that overlooks a beautifully landscaped pool and provides a view of the ocean (perfect for a glass of wine as the sun is setting!). The beds were really comfortable and it was really nice to have the third bathroom and shower. The kitchen was well stocked although I was surprised that there wasn't pepper and more spices. Not a big deal though. We made a couple of trips to the Mega grocery store about a 5 minute taxi ride away. A grill would have been nice to have on the terrace since we ate dinners in most nights, but fortunately our friends had a condo on the same floor not far from ours that did have one so we were able to gather at their place and grill. Ryan was very responsive, easy to work with and accommodating when we had to make a last minute change. Overall we absolutely loved Villa La Estancia and the attentive staff, location, beach, pool area and hot tubs added to the whole experience. They also had three boogie boards in the unit which our kids used constantly. The water was pretty warm and had the perfect waves for boogie boarding even for the younger kids. I also loved that we were able to walk along the beach for miles and could get to Bucerias (definitely check it out!) in about 20-25 minutes. Only wish we could have stayed longer. I would recommend Ryan's condo in a heartbeat and would definitely stay there again if we go back. My kids said it was one of their favorite vacations ever!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed in this unit a few weeks ago. I have stayed at Villa La Estancia in the past in Cabo San Lucas, and had a good experience- so I had pretty high expectations coming into this one. I was not disappointed! My friend and I had a fantastic time at the resort and in this unit specifically. Everything is very spacious, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and everything and everyone we came in contact with was wonderful. The view from this unit at sunset is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. Booking this was also easy, and check in/out were seamless. We also went to the spa, which was amazing as well. I'd highly recommend this resort and unit anytime- we cannot wait to go back!

Spacious, fantastic service

  • 5 of 5

We rented a 2BR at Villa La Estancia during the President's Day week. I have stayed in PV and Cabo many times, and Villa La Estancia is my favorite place I have stayed at. This place is for you if you are looking for a spacious, luxurious resort and you are reasonably independent (i.e., you prefer a beautiful apartment with large balcony, barbecue, full kitchen, a grocery store and a few nice restaurants in walking distance, your own washer and dryer, and not having to get in the early morning save-a-seat towel dance at a wristband for all-you-can-drink-with-free-mediocre-food resort).

The resort has great service and a very nice restaurant, pool- and beach service all day, a swim-up bar, four hot tubs of varying temperatures, free beach toys and boogieboards, its own garage if you rent a car, etc - and importantly, there's enough of everything - i.e., you can show up at the beach or at the pool at 1pm and still get four chairs together. It is close to the village of Bucerias and reasonable cab distance from the action in the center of Puerto Vallarta. It has a more conventional sister resort next door where they have a little store w ATM, a travel/activities office, two mediocre restaurants that I recommend avoiding unless you miss the wrist-band crowd, and more pools and tubs you can use; you can go there, the people from there cannot go to Estancia. The resort also has an amazing spa - even if you are not the massage type, do it. And it has a very good gym as well as lots of safe places to run outside.

What's a bit unusual compared to regular resorts is that you get to schedule when / how often you want the unit cleaned, towels and bedding changed, etc - it's very a-la-carte that way, rather than having the maid service come in automatically every day. Each cleaning is charged separately, just like at your own home.

Overall, the only reason not to consider Villa La Estancia is if you plan to go out in PV every night and want to be able to stumble home from the bars rather than bounce around in a cab for 20 minutes (don't drive, they have sobriety checkpoints everywhere). But if you want a beautiful place on a great beach with fantastic staff and all the amenities, I would highly recommend it.

This unit is fantastic, the owner is easy to work with, and overall my experience working with him (my first VRBO rental) was amazingly positive.

So Glad I found it.

  • 5 of 5

The Villa La Estancia is a jewel. From the service to the accommodations to its fabulous location, this resort property hit the perfect spot for a week of rest and relaxation without the kids. The pool was incredibly inviting and the ocean was warm enough to get into and enjoy. A good gym is a must for us and the Estancia met our needs quite well. The entire process from initial inquiry to getting questions answered to checking in and out was easy and smooth. This was my first time using to find and secure accommodations but it more than likely will be my go to in the future. My wife and I had a wonderful time and would strongly consider returning to La Estancia.

Great place for families and a relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased with our accommodations during our recent spring break trip. We rented both the A & B sides and had plently of room for my wife and two boys (9 & 12). The villa was well stocked with all the cooking tools one would need and having the Mega store just up the street made a week of meals very easy to manage. The views were awesome and the sunsets were spectacular.

Ryan was great to deal with during the entire process and I would highly recommend this unit to anyone wanting a spacious villa in a beautiful resort.
