About the property

Luxury Oceanfront Villa, Full Staff, 5 Bed, 6.5 Bath, Sleeps 12, Pool, Hot Tub

Welcome to our breathtaking Puerto Vallarta villa, "Villa Esplendora"

Puerto Vallarta in Jalisco, Mexico, blends the lush tropical jungles and pristine waters with the charm and elegance that is Puerto Vallarta. Villa Esplendora is situated on the South Shore of the Bay of Banderas very near the Los Arcos ecological marine preserve. This exquisite villa is the perfect blend of tasteful design and comfortable living in harmony with its natural surroundings with elements such as tropical gardens, artificial lakes and waterfalls.

A vacation at Villa Esplendora can accommodate those that simply want to relax and be pampered, and those that enjoy exploring the city night life and the rich natural wonders of the area. Whatever your travel mindset, be sure to leave the cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping, and cooking to our excellent staff!

Esplendora features three spacious oceanfront master suites with king beds and private Jacuzzis, and two beautifully appointed Garden bedrooms adjacent to unique bamboo gardens and waterfalls. One of the Garden bedrooms features two queen beds while the other bedrooms have kings. All are equipped with full baths.

Spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, Los Arcos and the Sierra Madre Mountains abound at Villa Esplendora. The home features all natural granite, marble and local canterra stone throughout the nearly 8,000 sq ft of living and entertaining area.

Master Suites - There are three oceanfront master suites with unobstructed panoramic views of Banderas Bay. Retractable doors open up these rooms to the sky and ocean and all three enjoy the comforts of king beds and in addition to private Jacuzzis perched on private balconies.

Bamboo Garden Bedrooms - Bamboo gardens and cascading waterfalls lead guests to these cozy private bedrooms in the interior of the home, one equipped with a king bed and the other with two queen beds.

Dining/Kitchen/Family Room - The grand staircase leads to this area where the kitchen, dining room, island bar and family room all blend together to make entertaining easy and enjoyable. This area seamlessly opens to the huge pool terrace area through open retractable doors.

Pool Terrace - The pool terrace features a large infinity pool, 10 person Jacuzzi, dining palapa, barbeque, rotisserie and wet bar. The pool is bookmarked by two fountains and fire pits that provide warm atmosphere at night. Speakers located on the pool terrace connect to the whole house sound system. There is plenty of comfortable outdoor seating and lounges to enjoy spectacular views of the ocean, Los Arcos and the mountains that frame beautiful Banderas Bay.

3 luxurious oceanfront Master Suites with king-sized beds and Jacuzzis.

What's included in our rates?

1) Complimentary Laundry Services

- Don't worry about washing your clothes. Our staff does your laundry each and every day. They'll neatly press and fold your clothes. This comes in really handy when it's time to pack.

2) Complimentary Shopping Services

- Don't worry about stopping at the grocery store right after you arrive. You tell us what food, snacks, and liquor you want stocked at the villa for your arrival, and it'll be there when you arrive.

- Need something from town? Just let our houseman Sergio know and he'll pick it up!

- Sergio will purchase all food & beverage items that you will need for your group based upon your exact requests and simply present you will the receipts at no mark-up.

3) Complimentary Meal Preparation

- Our chef Daniel can whip up pretty much anything you'd like. We have a menu from which you can choose your meals, or we can cater to specific requests. We can also do vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, etc.

- Our chef Daniel will prepare two meals of your choosing (i.e., breakfast and lunch, lunch and dinner, or breakfast and dinner) everyday except for Sunday. (Staff is off on Sundays, but if necessary you can request their services for a small fee.)

4) Complimentary Housekeeping

- Your private villa room will be cleaned each and every day, or more frequently if necessary. Our housekeeping staff is incredibly meticulous and thoughtful.

5) Complimentary Concierge Services

- Let our villa houseman, Sergio, make your tee times, set up your fishing trip, arrange your transportation - anything. Whatever you want, just let him know and he will make it happen! He is a local and knows all the best activities and vendors to go with.

6) All Taxes Included

– Many Puerto Vallarta villa rentals tack on a lot of extra taxes and fees, and don't tell you until you're about to pay. At Villa Esplendora, all taxes are included in the price of your stay, and there are NO HIDDEN FEES.

7) No Profit Mark-Up on Food & Beverages

– There is absolutely no profit mark-up on food & beverage purchases we will make on your behalf. So, enjoying food & drinks at our Puerto Vallarta villa is very economical, typically averaging just about $10/person/day for food, plus your consumption of liquor. If you want an alcoholic beverage, we'll buy you a bottle and make the drinks. We simply collect the receipts and present them to you at the end of your stay.

8) Tips?

– Entirely up to you. However, experience shows us that guests are so impressed with the food, service, and friendliness of our wonderful villa staff, they are eager to show their appreciation. A lot of guests ask for tipping suggestions. We recommend $10/person/day. So, a group of 5 staying for 5 nights would come out to a total of $250 USD.

About Mark

Vacations of Splendor is a family owned and operated vacation rental business. My father and uncle own the properties and I am the Sales/Web Manager. Nice to meet you!

Mark purchased this villa in 2005

Why Mark chose Puerto Vallarta

We love Puerto Vallarta. In particular the South Shore is lush, tropical, and more scenic with the Sierra Madre mountains lining the coast. Plus, the beaches and water are cleaner than those of the North Shore. We like the close proximity to the beautiful Old Town of Vallarta while still having the solitude of a private villa.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This vacation exceeded my expectations on many levels. Your Puerto Vallarta villa was even nicer than I anticipated based upon the beautiful pictures.



Having rented villas in various destinations previously, I know that the staff can make all the difference. Segio, Concha and Carman as well as the other villa staff were beyond exceptional! They provided excellent service, excellent food with the perfect touch cordiality. Thank you!

No need to keep looking, book this one :)

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough great things about this place and especially the whole process dealing with Mark. He is always quick to respond and helpful in every way. The place exceeded our expectations, it was huge! When they say "two bedroom suite" its more like two separate apartments, which is great for sharing! There is two separate entrances for the different suites, but there is also a foyer in between the two doors for easy access. Lots of dishes and cutlery, although the toaster needs to be replaced (only toasts one side?). The patio and the view are INSANE. I had coffee and breakfast out there every morning. If you are cruising through different VRBOs for this resort, do yourself a favour and just book with these guys.

Heavenly Vacations!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing, secluded but yet just a short drive away from the town. The three main suites are very large and the rest of the house very accommodating. You will enjoy breathtaking sunsets everyday!!! The staff takes the house to the next level, Daniel and Sergio give you a 5 star hotel service at every moment. Daniel will cook anything you want, one night he even cooked paella for us. Sergio oversees the house operation and supervises that every aspect of your stay is perfect. We didn't want to go back home. We stayed for a week and rented a car which we barely used since we spend most of the time in the house, but it is a great idea if you want to go into town, explore a nearby beach or want to rent a wave runner. We can't wait to go back next year!!!

Five Stars to the Staff!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing, secluded but yet just a short drive away from the town. You will be able to enjoy breathtaking sunsets everyday! The main three suites are very large and the rest of the house very accommodating. Sergio and Daniel bring the house to another level, the staff is amazing. Daniel will cook anything for you, one night he even cooked paella for us, and Sergio will make sure that everything runs smoothly and will make sure that every detail is perfect.... we really didn't want to leave. Do not hesitate to book this place, you won't regret it.

One of the Best Family Vacation EVER!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 7 amazing days at Villa Esplendora, and it was everything we had hoped it would be and MORE! Mark was super helpful (and patient) getting us squared away before our arrival. Once we arrived, we pretty much didn't need to worry about anything else because everything was taken care for us. Sergio, the house manager was extremely resourceful and was super professional. He is a warm, funny, and kind person, and truly cared for us, and made sure all of our needs were met (he searched for and found some of our favorite exotic tropical fruit for us). Daniel, the chef, was super friendly, joyful, and cooked the most EXCEPTIONAL meals every single day. We never left the villa once we arrived (we had plans to explore, but once we arrived, why leave paradise?). The fresh chips, salsa, and guacamole daily never got old. Daniel made a Spanish Paella for my husband's 40th birthday that was amazing!! If you like key lime pie, make sure to ask Daniel to make it (delicious). We had freshly made churros and plantains nightly (dipped in condense milk, yum!). The villa was kept spotless and Meche took excellent care of all of our rooms and clothing. We couldn't ask for more! The villa is beautiful (matched the pictures and descriptions to a T), but what made this trip one of the best trips we've taken is truly the staff. You can find a beautiful villa anywhere, but the staff was truly one-of-a-kind!!! There aren't enough words to express how much we appreciated the staff for making our trip one we'll remember for years to come!

11 Guest Say Best Vacation ever!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely beautiful with 3 master bedrooms including hot tubs in all 3 rooms. The pictures do not do this gorgeous house justice. The view from the infinity pool is stupendous and was a great place to hang out with everyone. We had 11 people stay in the villa and we had plenty of room.

As great as the previous comments are what made the vacation truly special was the staff. Sergio was able to get us everything we could think of. Daniel the chef prepared fantastic meals for breakfast and dinner. He also provided snacks for lunch and appetizers. Isela and Michon took care of the house including our laundry. First vacation we came home with all clean clothes. All of the staff was extremely friendly and went out of their way to make us happy.

We are already planning our next trip.

Wonderful location and the staff is exceptional!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was absolutely fantastic! The views are breath taking, location is very quiet and private, but still close enough to the hustle and bustle of the town and far enough to relax at our leisure. Sergio and Daniel made our stay complete, making us feeling like we were at home. The ladies kept everything neat and tidy and always greeted you with a smile. Perfect vacation!

You can also take many different excursions that leave from the Marina Terminal in town.

Charter Fishing: Puerto Vallarta has some wonderful fishing excursions. Just tell our houseman Sergio and he'll set everything up for you.

Jungle Canopy Tour: This is a must visit in Puerto Vallarta and is lots of fun. Our favorite tour company is Canopy Tours De Los Veranos.

Whale Watching: You can take a whale watching cruise or just a lovely sunset cruise where you are almost certain to see whales from December through April, along with the typical sightings of Dolphins and other marine life. Make sure you bring some binoculars!

Getting to and from downtown Puerto Vallarta is easy. Just a few minute ride away, taxis are plentiful and cheap. If you want to feel like a local, there is also a bus route that goes directly downtown that comes right to our villa!
