About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms (Sleeps up to 6 Adults)

Our lovely, very private, secure and accommodating home is located on a Puerto Vallarta Alta Vista hillside overlooking the Bay of Banderas and the famous symbolic crown of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church. We are conveniently located in close proximity to the local beach-- Los Muertos, and the old section of town--Basilio Badillo. A ten minute walk from our villa will place you in the heart of town to shop, dine in local restaurants, mingle in diverse neighborhoods, or enjoy night life along Puerto Vallarta's new Malecon stretch. Our staff is committed to having you as the focus of their attention throughout your stay at Villa Gaeta Mexico.

Villa Gaeta Mexico, with its Spanish Colonial appeal, has a breathtaking ocean and city view from the vantage point of every room. Each of the three bedrooms has a king-size bed canopied with mosquito netting, balcony and a full private bath. Wake-up or retire for the night to fresh air, bright sun, blue sky or moonlight. Rooms throughout the villa are traditionally decorated and designed for the comfort, and pleasure of our guests. Our dining area, kitchen, living room, plunging pool and deck with lounge chairs are all unencumbered by walls or windows. Our villa is truly romantic, well situated for honeymoons, families, friends and private small business retreats. Yes, we keep our guest in mind with every management decision. We aim to please from the time house staff greet guests directly from the airport to the day of departure.

Treat yourself to a real vacation and let us take care of you: we offer a full-time housekeeper to make-up beds and tidy up rooms, attend to your laundry needs and cook authentic gourmet Mexican meals. Should anything go wrong with our property during your visit, our on-duty maintenance man is available to take care of the unexpected.

About Villa Gaeta Mexico Property Owners

Property owners are working professional people who also enjoy get-a-ways and vacations at private home, Villa Gaeta Mexico. We too seek opportunities to share our property with family, friends and colleagues. The photo seen here was taken in the evening at the villa as we hosted a small party for business colleagues.

Villa Gaeta Mexico Property Owners purchased this house in 1999

Why Villa Gaeta Mexico Property Owners chose Amapas

Our Spanish Colonial, fully staffed private home offers the perfect environment to relax from the time you first rise in the morning and take the first breath of fresh air onward until you retire for the night. We simply fell in love with this property when one of us noticed that we had not left the villa the entire day to shop or hang out at the beach. Lounging around on the deck laid back with a good book in such a perfect environment, with such perfect view from every room was vacationing in the truest sense and fantastic!! This is Villa Gaeta Mexico...a full, relaxing vacation and time well spent before returning to a busy schedule. We look forward to our own get-a-ways to the villa, a minimum of two or three times a year. This is the Villa Gaeta Mexico we so desire to share with our guests.

What makes this house unique

We are fully staffed, offer great homemade Mexican food and other cuisines. We are in walking distance to town and beaches, yet we offer a feeling of seclusion and being far away.

Villa Gaeta

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary with family and friends at Villa Gaeta in May 2016. It was the perfect setting. The Villa is beautiful and very well maintained. The staff was incredible and met our every need. The view from the villa is perfect. We spend every day in the pool and enjoying the view. Our renewal ceremony was poolside and was beautiful. Doria made us several delicious meals and Tony and Lalo were very helpful. We highly recommend Villa Gaeta for anyone looking for a unique experience in Puerto Vallarta. The rooms are beautiful and very clean and the open air downstairs living area is perfect for partying and enjoying the sun. The location is great with the town easily accessible. Thank you so much Mary for all your help and making us feel very special. We hope to be back soon.

A Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a remarkable week at Villa Gaeta. Everything was perfect including the view, location and layout of the property. Even the landscaping is beautiful and meticulously maintained. The pictures don't do the place justice. Our two teenagers enjoyed the privacy of their own suites and my wife and I shared our own private sanctuary up on the third floor. We enjoyed delicious breakfasts served by Doria every morning as well as a delicious dinner in on our last night. Caretakers Eduardo and Tony kept everything immaculate and were a helpful source of local information.

Walking into town was easy although the walk back up the hill makes an inexpensive taxi worthwhile. We enjoyed a couple of nice dinners at nearby Casa Isabel which is a five minute walk away. Villa Gaeta is a little off the beaten path in the southern part of Vallarta and we needed to use taxis most days. We spent about 150 pesos each way to get to the marina area for our scheduled activities with Vallarta Adventures. Coming back to the Villa every day and jumping into the beautiful private heated pool made it worth it. The living and dining area on the first floor are completely open air so I can't comment on comfort there during a hot summer day. However, the weather during our stay in March was perfect and we never even considered the need for the available air conditioning in the upstairs bedrooms.

A minor quibble was the weakness of the unit's wifi signal.

We all had a wonderful stay and hope to have the opportunity to return someday.

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much for this review and especially giving it such a poignant title, A Hidden Gem. The owners and Villa Gaeta staff do our best to accommodate guests as we ourselves would expect on vacation. Repeat guests are the first to notice that we go out of our way to noticeably update and improve, so please hurry back.

The photographs here tell the story, it is a gorgeous property with fantastic rooms, bathrooms, kitchen and EVERYTHING. The setting is stunning and the staff are just so sweet and great. I cannot recommend this property enough. Walk the streets, or let a friendly taxi take you up to your oasis. Charming old town is steps away, where you will find fantastic food, arts, crafts and everything you want or need. 6 of us stayed very comfortably.

Beverly Hills of PVR

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed the house. Views are nice from every room and the house staff is very accommodating and friendly. When I spoke with some locals, they describe the area as the Beverly hills of PVR. We went to town everyday, walked down the hill but I would never try and walk back up. Taxi cabs are plentiful. Just tell the taxi driver "Vista Grill". Pool was great, Beds nice and firm, WiFi spotty but we worked with it, Kitchen has everything you need and bathrooms had plenty of hot water. All in all "IT CANT BE BEAT FORM THE PRICE"!

All 3 bedrooms have sliding doors that look out on the ocean (we never closed them). For 7 days I would wake up to the very beautiful view of blue ocean as far as I could see.

I was reluctant to send a check through the postal service. I usually use paypal. I just didn't feel secure. So when they told me they don't use paypal I was a little afraid of being taken. As you see that was not the case.

Understated, but intimate and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I would much rather stay in a small villa like Villa Gaeta then in a larger hotel wherein only the rented room is private. With only three bedrooms, it is an intimate place to get away for a while. Rooms are large and well appointed and the whole place is yours. Donia and Freddie looked after us marvellously - well beyond what anyone has a right to expect. The place is walking distance from all of the Puerto Vallarta old town and Malecon, but high enough on the hill to afford great views. It may not be the most opulent place in town, but it has a rustic Mexican charm that makes it very comfortable.

A View of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent 10 magical days at Villa Gaeta. Waking up to that beautiful vista every morning, seeing the whales leap in the Bay of Banderas, whiling away the hours with a good book, walking down into Old Town to shop and people watch, enjoying the comfortable lounge chairs by the pool (and moving under the palapa when we got too much sun)--these are some of the very enjoyable things we did. We enjoyed Doria's fantastic breakfasts every morning and it was lovely to just sit back while she kept everything spic and span--even doing our laundry for us. Freddy kept the pool pristine and the lovely grounds in perfect order and made us fantastic margaritas and snacks. He was also a fount of information on everything Puerto Vallarta and helped us many times to make reservations, find good restaurants, and understand the transportation system of this great town. We had wonderful dinners at the Vista Grill (just down the street), the Argentinian steak restaurant at Basilo Badillo and Insurgentes, and at El Brujo (on recommendation of one of the owners). We attended a great show at Stage II, and another at The Palm club. Of course, we had to have a few drinks (and lunch) and our fave bar in PV: Café Roma. There are many more wonderful places to discover and we can't wait to come back! I look forward to our return to PV and to Villa Gaeta.
