About the property

Expansive Villa, 8 Bedrooms & 1 Studio with 8.5 Baths, Sleeps 16-22

Bienvenidos a Villa Encanto, Puerto Vallarta! Over the years, our family has been coming to Bucerias to enjoy Villa Encanto like its many guests. The beautiful people, ocean, and surrounding is so intoxicating that in 2005 we decided to purchase this awe inspiring 9 bedroom beachfront Villa for our family and guests.

Many improvements and changes are made every year that reflect the classic Spanish hacienda feel while incorporating some modern comforts.

Spanish tile flooring in the main living room as well as the downstairs master bedroom and media room. Beautiful furnishings, king size beds in 8 rooms plus 1 studio, plush bedding with 400 plus thread count sheets, draperies, artwork, lighting and a state of the art air conditioning mini split system throughout the entire property and as well as ceiling fans. In addition, every bedroom has a closet safe for your convenience.

Most importantly, we created a huge media/theater room in the lower level where you will be able to enjoy a 70 inch wide-screen SMART HDTV, BLU-RAY/DVD combo and satellite channels. A DVD video library and board games for your enjoyment. Sonos sound system throughout. For those who just can’t get away from the office, we offer WIFI, a multi function fax/printer/scanner and a Vonage internet line for all of your long distant calls to the US or Canada.- for FREE!

Our staff of 6 is there to make sure your vacation is perfect in every way. We offer a cook who will prepare two meals of your choice per day (cost of food and beverages not included) as well as her staff (morning and evening assistant) to set up service and make your special margarita and or cocktail. Our housekeepers will greet you daily to help with any special requests as well as our English speaking property manager who is your personal concierge.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had the best time at Villa Encanto! Although we all live in Santa Barbara, my husband's brother and sister, their spouses and their children took a family vacation to Villa Encanto in Bucerias. There were 6 adults and 5 cousins. Everyone had the best time!

We were greeted by the staff who had prepared some munchies including freshly made guacamole and a salsa to die for. Pitchers of homemade margaritas, pini coladas, and soft drinks were an appreciated welcoming.

We all changed into our swim suits and made a mad dash for the ocean, which is right outside the front lawn. The beach was clean and the water was lovely - 91 degrees, in fact!

There is so much room to spread out, everyone was completely comfortable. There are 7 bedrooms and each one has its own private bath. The rooms were beautifully furnished and my son even commented on how soft the sheets were! Imagine! A 22 year-old boy actually mentioning how wonderful the sheets felt!

Perhaps the best thing about the whole trip were the meals! Wow! The chef made the best chili rellanos I've ever had and I LOVE LOVE LOVE chili rellanos. But I'm also a critic. I hate the ones that are all eggy. But Patricia got it just right! We ordered anything we wanted - Mexican, American, Italian, whatever. And every meal was flawless. Not one complaint - everything made from scratch using fresh ingredients. We even had a birthday party while we were there and the homemade chocolate cake was fabulous.

Greg, the house manager was always available and quick to respond if we needed anything. He hooked us up with a masseuse, horse back riding, and fun day trips such as zip lining or scuba diving.

At the end of the trip I realized that having a personal chef was really a cost effective way to travel. The food was not only excellent, we saved tons of money by avoiding restaurant fares.

When everyone arrived back in Santa Barbara, the kids started an online posting of their favorite photos. We all jumped in and it was heartily decided that the experience was priceless!

We are hoping to go back - this time with our best friends! It was totally relaxing and we were pampered every day, all day long!

As a mother of two, vacations can sometimes just feel like a change of scenery, but not at Villa Encanto! This is a 5 star property and experience from booking till you leave for the airport! The staff is so warm and friendly that they feel like family almost from the onset. The property itself couldn't be any more beautiful or family friendly and the quant Mexican town of Bucerias is something straight out of a movie. Staying at Villa Encanto is truly one of the best vacation I have even been on and we are counting down the days till we can go back!

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

From the great reviews and beautiful pictures, we expected a wonderful villa for our vacation in Bucerias. From the moment we walked into the villa and were met by Esther, we knew Villa Encanto would not disappoint. The villa is immaculate but the personalized service from the staff was beyond our expectations. Ale and Paty made the most delicious food and drinks. Everything was so fresh and flavourful. Frederico kept the grounds absolutely beautiful. Karen and Jessica helped out in any way they could and it was great knowing that Pedro was always around to keep us safe. Whenever we needed anything, the staff went out of their way to help us. And they were always one step ahead of us. The staff became like family.

Absolutely Beautiful! Way more beautiful in person!

  • 5 of 5

This place is genuinely beautiful! The property is very spacious with a large pool, lawn, beach patio, and actual beach area. The pictures do not do it justice!! It is way more beautiful in person! The staff was equally beautiful and amazing, and they were like new family by the end of the week. Everyone was so kind and welcoming. Our extended family had an amazing time and I am hoping to make this a return trip!

Above and Beyond

  • 5 of 5

Tim and his team went above and beyond in organizing our stay, as well as helping surprise the guest of honor with a gift sent from the States. I would highly recommend this spot to anyone looking for an intimate yet inviting getaway. They know how to take care of their guests and we'd definitely come back.

One of the best vacations I've ever been on.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 10 just returned from this amazing property. Every day was pure magic. Waking up in your king size bed to the sound of the ocean followed by a home made amazing breakfast from the sweet and attentive staff is just one of the thousand things that makes this place so special. The house is immaculately kept from the daily deep cleaning from the hard working cleaning staff. The property is absolutely perfect with the large pool, hammocks on the beach to relax in, and close proximity to the charming town of Bucerias, etc etc. Afternoons are the high point with the amazing happy hour that happens. Hand squeezed limes make the best margaritas in the world. The guacamole and dips are the best I've ever had! Dinner follows right after that and is perfectly made. We chose to have our dinner outside on the patio by the ocean. Every day from start to finish was absolute perfection. This house and its staff is just perfect and we will be back for sure!
