“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!”
