About the property

Nestled in the mountains above the road to Mismaloya and just minutes from downtown, Quinta Encantada is a secured, private complex with jaw-dropping views of Banderas Bay, the Sierra Madre Mountains and Puerto Vallarta’s Southside. Quinta Encantada is comprised of five luxury villas under the same ownership, each with its own private entrance, unique style and panoramic view. Access to the beach is a short walk down the road, across the street to Calle Santa Barbara from which you can take the steps to Los Muertos beach or can continue on to Olas Altas and enter the beach adjacent to the newly-constructed pier. With over 20,000 sq. feet of living space, 10 air-conditioned bedrooms and three heated pools, Quinta Encantada’s five villas can be rented individually or together for larger groups and is the perfect entertaining and living space for vacations with family or friends, weddings, or corporate retreats.

Humberto, Quinta Encantada’s English-speaking house manager who lives on-site, will cater to your vacation needs (whether booking a tour, chartering a sailing or fishing excursion, making dinner reservations or arranging transportation). Maid service is provided daily (except Sundays and holidays). Chef services are available by request.

Villa Carter is a spacious 1-bedroom 1.5 bathroom villa that enjoys unobstructed views of the Bay and the city from the solitude of its private terrace. Inside, 8 foot sliding glass doors give an open-air feel and permit enjoyment of the city and bay views as you relax on the living room sofa, sit at the dining table or prepare a meal in the kitchen. Stairs outside the front door lead to the heated pool, deck and palapa.

Another great stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have actually stayed here several times, and it never disappoints. This year we stayed in Gregory, which is a beautiful, open place. Our daughter and her boyfriend joined us for a week and had a great time as well. The pool is bathtub warm, and the views high over the ocean are peaceful and lovely. The owners, Barbara and Jerry, are friendly but not intrusive, and Humberto, the on site manager, takes care of your needs. It's an easy 15 minute walk to the old town, which we did every day. We usually took a cab home, because it's kind of a steep walk toward the end, and it only costs $3-4. Yea, we'll be back.

Casa Carter - Exquisite Getaway for Two.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently spent a week in Casa Carter at Quinta Encantada. The villa is beautiful, bright, airy, and spacious with incredible views of Banderas Bay from the private terrace. The decor is tasteful and reflective of the Mexican culture, accommodations very comfortable, and the kitchen and bathrooms are appointed with all necessary amenities. We were able to walk to the town and beach early in the day and come back later for a swim in the lovely tiled pool. Some days we just enjoyed staying poolside at the villa. The weather was perfect in early April, and the local restaurants are plentiful, all with deliciously prepared dishes at very reasonable prices. The extra bonus was having Ana everyday not only cleaning the villa, but doing our laundry daily! Humberto, the manager was available to assist us in anyway he could with restaurant reservations, taxis, etc. The owners, Barbara and Jerry, happened to be there during our stay and were so warm and welcoming they made us feel like family. This property is private, peaceful and relaxing in a gorgeous setting that is close to all of the local town action. We highly recommend it and we will definitely return!

Best sleep ever!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had an incredible experience at the Quinta Encantada. The villa, Casa Carter where we stayed was very private, decorated in traditional Mexican decor and had an incredible panoramic view of the ocean and all of Puerto Vallarta. We were very impressed on how spacious the villa was for being a one bedroom. The amenities were amazing; there was a terrace where we enjoyed the beautiful view of the sunset. Ana the maid discretely did our laundry and cleaned our room. Humberto the property manager accommodates your every need. The first day we got there, we already knew that we would return. The bed in Casa Carter was so comfortable that it inspired us to buy a similar bed upon our return home. It was definitely the best sleep ever! Quinta Encantada was quiet and relaxing and minutes from the beach and downtown Puerto Vallarta. I highly recommend staying here as I can’t wait to return!
