About Hillary Shepperd
Hello, our names are Greg and Hillary Shepperd and live in Denver Colorado. Like you, we work hard, and when we get away we want to spoiled and pampered. Villa Karaway is a great place to relax, unwind and enjoy - in style! We are happy to help you arrive and revive at Villa Karaway!
Hillary Shepperd purchased this Villa in 1999
Why Hillary Shepperd chose South Zone
Villa Karaway is our crown jewel in our properties holdings. It is a expertly staffed villa right on a sandy beach. When we walked through the completed construction in 1999, we absolutely fell in love with the building, the location, the facilities and the views - wow!
What makes this Villa unique
Sit back and relax and let our gourmet chef (Elba) fix you wonderful local food and beverages. Our full time maid (Gloria) makes sure that your castle next to the sand and ocean is spotless. If you do wonder out of your palace, visit some fine restaurants, explore the rain forest, shop at the near by downtown area, surf, boat, fish, zip line, or relax in your own beach side infinity pool and watch the sun sink into the ocean. During winter you will also see plenty of sea life including whales - right from your porch!

Beautiful property and accommodating staff. Our family of 10 enjoyed the villa, pool, and beach. This was our second time and we will return. Thanks!
Everyone needs some time away
The Karaway Villa is excellent for families. Ten of us stayed for a week. Enrique made sure everything was in order. Elba and Gloria took excellent care of my family. Elba is an excellent chef and able to please even the pickiest of teenagers. She was open to prepare anything we asked. The pools are gorgeous and very quiet. The beach is somewhat short for beach walkers, but that simply leaves more time to lounge by one of two pools. It is easy to get into town and return even after mid-night.
I highly recommend the property and it's owners. IKK
Thanks for your review! We hope to have you back soon!
Incredible View and Private!
As soon as you walk into the lobby you realize your location and view is perfection! Each room in the house is large, private, and have very comfortable beds. The communal area was beautiful and spacious. The staff was incredible, attentive, and helpful with every step of our vacation. The master suite has a beautiful large upstairs balcony perfect for sipping morning coffee with your group. The beautiful sound of the ocean seeps in through the large glass doors as you sleep. I recommend staying up to view the reflection of the moon light on the ocean right outside by the pool or balcony. We did not do the all inclusive since we knew we would spend most of our time outside the house but we did get the fridge stocked with all our favorite goodies. We also had Elba prepare some of her amazing Ceviche, which was sooo delicious. They helped us order a last minute boat taxi, which picked us up right outside the house and took us to a private beach that you can only get to by boat. Then once we returned we walked south along the beach for about 5 minutes to a neighboring outdoor beach restaurant. Amazing prices with a beautiful sunset view right from your table. We also really enjoyed the breakfast at the restaurant attached to the house complex. The food, view, and price was also perfect!! This house is nothing less than perfection. We honestly can’t wait to return!
Amazing location, amenities, and out-of-this world cooking.
If you are looking for a peaceful spot, attentive service, and excellent food (especially fresh seafood) - this Villa can't be beat. The cook will never disappoint. Period.
This is an awesome place to stay.
Right on the beach, plus private pool and large pool. Beautiful setting, wonderful home. Perfect spot for a Puerto Vallarta get away. Property is clean and well appointed. We are definitely going back.
Thank you! We are excited to have you back in 2019!!
After traveling the world, I continue to return here...
Everything about Villa Karaway is designed to allow you to relax and enjoy your time away. Elba, the cook, is superb and her meals are excellent. She takes individuals’ allergies into consideration when cooking for the group and prepares individual dishes as necessary. Gloria and the housekeeping staff make sure that your only job is to get up and enjoy the day. The ocean, pools and accommodations are inviting and everything is extremely well-maintained. You will want to plan your next visit while you are there because it is just that terrific. Don’t wait to make the reservation - Vila Karaway is really fantastic.
Thank you Michael. We are happy to have you as a repeat guest. We look forward to having you again soon! Best, ~Villa Karaway Staff
