About the Property

5 Bedrooms, 7 Bathrooms, Jacuzzi, Heated Pool, Ocean, Mountain and City View

With more than 7600 square feet of living space, Hacienda de los Santos is regarded by many as one of the finest villas in PV, offering stunningly panoramic views over the Bay of Banderas (the house is perched high on the hill, with no house above it). This exceptional villa is built in the traditional Mexican hacienda style (and to California earthquake standards), combining the best of the Old and New Worlds. The house boasts an infinity pool and separate spa/hot tub. Hacienda de los Santos offers comfortable modern amenities, furnished with beautiful antiques and modern art.

The Hacienda is located on a cliff in the exclusive residential enclave of Real de Conchas Chinas (only 11 homes are set inside this gated and guarded community), adjoining the famed Conchas Chinas neighborhood. The house’s panoramic ocean, city and mountain views are unrivalled.

You will be pampered in this custom-designed and meticulously built home with its carved cantera columns and balustrades, Spanish Alhambra tiles, bold arches, copper and crystal chandeliers, matte tikul flooring, vaulted brick bóveda ceilings, potted flowers and plants, cupolas, and private patios and “Juliet” balconies. Four bedrooms face inward over an inner courtyard and pool, enjoying sweeping views of the Bay of Banderas. A separate casita has its own living room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, with views of the mountains, jungle, and Bay, and is a favorite of those wanting a bit more privacy.

You’ll begin your day with platters of fresh fruit, fresh-squeezed juices, and with breakfast cooked to order. Huevos Mexicanos and Huevos Rancheros are just two of Rosa’s many specialties. Please note, Rosa is not a Chef, but an excellent cook. She is better than some "so called Chefs" in Puerto Vallarta. You can swim, enjoy a pool-side nap or the sun, explore Puerto Vallarta (a five-minute taxi ride away), or be entertained by an Apple type TV system with thousands of movies and programs, an audio surround system in the living area, high-end Ipod station and outdoor speakers, a library, and more. There’s even an office for those unfortunates who have to do some work while at the house. Telephone calls (we have two lines) to the US and Canada are free.

Our guests consistently report that a favorite Hacienda feature is our very dedicated staff of three: the houseman, the maid, and a great cook, who, in the best Mexican tradition, endeavor to see that your every need is met. The staff works 6 days a week (Sundays and National Holidays are off) but can often be hired to work off-hours and days. For example, if guests arrive on a Sunday, the staff will work and take a different day off. Dinner parties are a favorite event for our guests, with seating for up to 28.


Our concierge service will assist you with tours, excursions, in-house spa and massage services, private chauffeurs, boating, sailing, whale-watching trips, golf, advice on restaurants, and much more. For reservations and information, please call 221-5495 or US 415.704.0455 or US Cell 415.307.8841.

Year Purchased: 2011

About: Educated and brought up in France and USA. Traveled extensively through Europe, USA, Caribbean, Mexico and Canada and still so much to see and discover. Worked in the restaurant industry for many years with Gerard Boyer of Chateau les Crayeres; Lieven Vercouteren of La Briquetterie; Joaquim Splichal in Los Angeles, Garibaldi's in SFO and cruise lines. Educated in oenology with Gilles Mony of Epernay originally (best youngest Sommelier in France at the time). Now running a Travel agency and a real Estate & Rental company. Love the water, sailing, boating, snorkeling, diving... love the outdoors, nature... Have been coming in Puerto Vallarta for over 22 years...

Why South Zone, Puerto Vallarta, Jal., Mexico:
Hacienda de los Santos is the perfect location for a quiet and luxury retreat. The views are unparalleled. 360 degree from the south shore (Los arcos) to the North shore Sierra mountains and Punta Mita. On a clear day you can even see the famed Marietas Islands. Have visited P.V. for many year and enjoyed its local colors, friendly people and culture. You will find restaurants from a simple taco stand to an elegant sit down dinner. Unlimited art galleries and crafts, theaters, museum, botanical gardens, wild life, and much more.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Fell in love with the custom designed and meticulously built home with its extensive cantera columns, railings, Spanish Alhambra tiles, bold arches, matte tikul flooring, vaulted brick bóveda ceilings and cupolas throughout the entire home; and off course the superb unobstructed view of Puerto Vallarta, sierra mountains and the entire Bay of Banderas. Far enough for a peaceful retreat; yet close enough to be part of the busy suburb in minutes...
