Puerto Vallarta Villa 20710 is a masterpiece of contemporary architecture and interior design; just ten minutes drive from the charming old section of Puerto Vallarta, on its own sheltered cove and beach.
The Villa is reserved for just one family or group at a time, of up to eight guests. This is the perfect villa for those for whom inspired design, and a marriage of architecture and nature, are important; The Villa’s glass walls merge with the surrounding tropical jungle, lawns and sea.
Puerto Vallarta is on Mexico's desirable Pacific Coast, easily accessible by direct flights from major U.S. cities. Just south of the old section of the city, The Villa looks out on Los Arcos, the picturesque rock formation in Banderas Bay.
At night, the villa enjoys romantic views of the city lights on the other side of the bay.
Within a ten-minute drive one can reach the art galleries, restaurants and shops of Old Vallarta. And for the more physically active, a wide range of water and land sports can be arranged nearby.
It is impossible to separate this stunning house from the surrounding natural beauty. It has three "skins" - during the day, the glass walls are completely open and the space becomes one with nature; at dusk, the sheer window treatments are drawn, reflecting the candlelight and moving gracefully in the ocean breezes.
The house has different volumes and different heights, and is capped by a butterfly-shaped roof. Water and the sound of water play an important part in the ambience - in the waterfalls that cascade from the roof into the creek that runs through the property, in the Zen garden and in the pool that thrusts into the sea.
The main living space is the intimate heart of the house. The interiors create a sense of peace with their neutral color palette of creams, white and chocolate.
Resting areas include a two-story high living room with gorgeous minimalist furnishings and priceless sculptures, an intimate study and entertainment room, and kitchen/dining area with its 10-foot table created by Jerome Abel Seguin.
There are four master suites within The Villa, in two different houses. The Main House includes the master suite -- a spectacularly large (New York loft-like) space with a floating bed by Fabian Baren, a caesar-stone/wenge-wood floor, and a Zen-like contemplation space; almost needless to say, views through all-glass walls take one's breath away. Just down the hall is the Japanese bedroom, also with double sinks, Terrazzo floors and an over-sized balcony. Across a teak bridge is The Guest House with both downstairs and upstairs suites; downstairs is a primitive space with a colorful Bali bed and indoor/outdoor showers, upstairs is the all-white bedroom with a spacious adjoining room that may be used as a fifth bedroom.
All bedding in both the Main House and Guest House is from Takashimaya, New York.
The house manager can arrange tennis court times just next door to the villa and golf on either of two nearby championship courses. For deep-sea fishing or yachting, a 40-foot boat can be rented. For swimming, The Villa’s own beach is wonderful; it is sequestered in a private cove and provides easy snorkeling just off the beach; for other beaches at Quimixto, Las Animas and Punta Mita, water taxis are available. Shopping in Puerto Vallarta is just 10 minutes away by the villa's own car and driver.
The food at The Villa is wholesome international cuisine with a Mexican dimension. For breakfast, the house offers fruits, cereals, breads, coffees and teas, and prepared Mexican dishes and a la carte orders of eggs. For other meals, The Villa gathers information from guests prior to their vacation regarding their food preferences and any allergies, and then specific menu options may be discussed with the staff after arrival. Beverages including local wines are included in the rental price. The house staff will guide guests to Puerto Vallarta's best restaurants; some favorites are Cafe des Artistes, the Bistro, and Maximilian's at Los Muertos.
