“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!”
