Guest Reviews

Although we have hosted very dissimilar groups, the common link between our visitors has always been relaxation and enjoyment. Whether it is about a well deserved break after an accomplishment, or a special occasion you wish to celebrate, we are here to worry, so that you don’t have to. These are just a couple of excellent reviews that past guests have shared after their own “Villa Balboa experience” On behalf of the staff, I invite you to come and indulge in an experience like no other at our unique luxury rental property.

Time of Our Life!

“My (now) husband and I got married there and our families stayed in the Villa Balboa for a week, and it was the coolest thing any of us have EVER done! The pictures (though amazing) don’t do the house justice, it is even more fantastic and beautiful and bigger than in the pics. But despite the incredible house and VIEW the best part was the staff… They took care of EVERYTHING! WHile I was planning my wedding Christian was so quick and responsive to all my emails/questions about everything and he planned and put together the wedding of our dreams that could not have been better in any way (my sister says she’s going to elope because there is no way to top my wedding! lol) Luiz the cook we all wanted to take home with us, he was like our momma bird taking care of all of us and then cooking the most DELICIOUS foods that made us never want to have to eat (or spend time) outside the villa! Normally in these house rental situations you have a cook they call “chef”, but Luiz is a real chef who could cook for any foodie. Eduardo took care of everything else you can imagine and Maria and Sonia (we almost never saw) were there all day every day discreetly cleaning the villa from top to bottom. We have never felt so pampered in our lives. Even if you go to an amazing resort you never get the individualized attention and caring that we got at Villa Balboa. We will never forget it and we will always miss it! Just as a side note, we were QUITE nervous (1st time on homeaway) to be renting a house/sending money via internet to Mexico, but you can trust everything at Villa Balboa to be extremely professional with no funny business. I would recommend this house and this experience to anyone and everyone! Miss you guys, thanks so much for making our stay with you so wonderful!”

Villa Balboa is a breathtaking property with remarkable staff! Once-in-a-lifetime experience!

“Our girls trip to Villa Balboa was truly spectacular. The house exceeded our expectations with it’s luxury touches, incredible views, and phenomenal staff. Oliver (concierge) was a tremendous help before and during the trip. He made us feel so comfortable and attended to our every request. Jose Luis (chef) was such a delight and made the most delicious food, prepared exactly as we asked. He made sure to get the best and freshest ingredients and we adored how lovingly he presented his food. Eduardo (house manager), there aren’t enough words to express our thanks to Eduardo. We were at the house almost the entire trip (why leave?) and he never tired from our endless requests. He made sure that we always had a cold beverage and did so with a smile. To feel so taken care of by him really allowed us to relax and enjoy every moment. We felt like we made friends in Oliver, Jose Luis and Eduardo which truly transported the trip from amazing to once-in-a-lifetime! While I knew that Villa Balboa was going to be great, I could have never expected how the thoughtful little touches put into the home would elevate the experience. It is truly like staying at a five star resort, but better. The service matched experiences that I’ve had in some of the most exclusive hotels internationally. And even after saying all of this, I feel like I haven’t fully expressed how much we loved our trip. I can’t find enough words to fully express our thanks!”

Amazing Puerta Vallarta House for gathering friends and family!

“My wife and I gathered 14 friends for a week holiday and had a fantastic experience. The house is simply incredible and the staff is amazing. The chef, concierge, service staff, etc… were beyond helpful with everything from cooking, cleaning, serving, recommending restaurants, bars, clubs, helping with taxis, etc…
Puerta Vallarta is a fabulous charming city and the house was had a perfect view of the harbor and surrounding area from the sea cliff.
We went deep sea fishing, scuba diving, jet skiing, etc…
Thank you Villa Balboa for a week of paradise!”

What a wonderful place

“Our stay at Villa Balboa was absolutely fantastic. The staff was phenomenal – extremely personable, helpful and professional. They were able to cater to our every need and request with efficiency and a positive attitude. Martha and Eduardo in the kitchen were superb – the food and service every day were far better than anything we experienced in our nights out in Puerto Vallarta. Edgar, the concierge, was also wonderful. He ensured that our trip ran without a hitch. As there was a group of nine young adults in the group, he was able to organize trips into town to experience the local nightlife – everything was taken care of – what a way to enjoy PV! They were all most certainly an integral part of making this an incredible vacation.
Villa Balboa itself was also ideal. It was the perfect spot for our group. The villa is spacious and beautifully decorated. The view is beautiful – a great spot for watching sunsets. It is also well located for trips into town.
Overall the experience couldn’t have been better. This has certainly been a vacation that will be remembered for years to come.”

An experience of a lifetime!

“From the minute we walked into Villa Balboa, we knew this would be an incredible trip. Eduardo, Chuy, Edgar, Christhian, and the entire team here were just incredible. Everyone paid such good attention to our entire family, which isn’t always the easiest! What we also loved was that we were able to relax everyday and not worry about what we needed to do next. After going out for dinner one night, we also realized that we were really spoiled by Chuy’s cooking, so we thank you for helping us gain at least 10 pounds during our time here.
We will definately be recommending Villa Balboa and Puerto Vallarta to everyone back home. Thank you again for making this a memorable experience of a lifetime!”

Let VB Take Care of You

“The entire staff, including Christian, Edgar, Eduardo, Marta, and the cleaning staff are amazing. The personal service provided by the staff from Marta’s cooking to Eduardo’s margarita’s was surely top highlights to an amazing property. We hope to be back in the future. VB is close to the “Arc’s” which is a great place to enjoy the beach, rent a boat, or jet ski.”
