If you are planning a trip with a large group and you want to have a private house perfectly located close to downtown and the beach look no further.
We were a group of 26 and had the best weekend in Casa La Villita.
The staff will make you feel like home and will find the way to get anything you could need.

Perfect place to stay for large group, awesome staff
Casa La Vallita was an amazing stay, the location was perfect as it was in a quieter place of town but was a 5 minute walk from the beach and 15 minute from old town. The staff were friendly and were always around to provide whatever we needed. I ate every meal at the villa and they were all amazing. We went with a group of 11 people and the villa was easily big enough where we never felt cramped and you could easily find space for some alone time if you wanted. Overall the stay we had there was amazing and if i ever get the chance to go back i want to and would recommend anyone else to give it a try!

Gorgeous home with amazing staff, perfect for large group
Our family of 29 had an amazing Christmas vacation here. This is our second time to come to the Villita and we have been so pleased both times! We had enough room for all and it was great that all rooms have their own bathrooms. This home is absolutely amazing. The grounds are gorgeous, it is spacious and spread out so that your large group has plenty of room. There are numerous patios where you can catch sun or read a book. The pool is big enough for everyone and a great place to hang out. The rooms are perfectly appointed--you won't need anything!
The staff makes this place extra special. Fili and Victor make sure every need is met and cater to the guests constantly. They are so kind and make sure your drink is refilled or will help you with any excursions or recommendations. Lupe's cooking is outstanding-- there was never a bad meal. She is a gourmet chef and we loved the meals. Claudia keeps the place spotless, cleaning the rooms daily. We love the closeness to the beach, the pool, the food, but especially the friendships we've created with these fabulous people that work here. Casa La Villita is truly a treasure!!
Thank you to Karla, the owner, she is so easy to work with and answered so many questions that we all had before hand. Thanks to all for a special Christmas with family. We can't recommend this place enough!

Heavenly place for family gathering
Our stay in July for 6 days and 5 nights at Casa La Villita was just absolutely amazing. It was 23 people and we had rented 10 rooms for a family get together. From the start working with the owner Karla was fantastic. She is very patient and answers every question with great detail. The staff when we got there was just beyond amazing. Every need and requirement was met with smiling faces and quick responses.
I wanted to definitely give a big shout out to Fili, Victor, Luis, Lupita and Claudia. They were all beyond outstanding. They were so good in looking after each and every detail for what everyone needed and always did things with a smile.
From the amazing dinners cooked by Lupita, to the great attention to detail and super drinks made by Fili and Victor it was all just really cool. Fili was a man of all talents with helping setup activities, grocery shopping and so much more.
Victor would not even let us pick up a plate and ensured we always had the drinks we needed through the day. Luis was great in addressing any needs quickly. Lupita was like a chef and the food she prepared to meet our needs was
just mind-blowing. Claudia was also excellent in always ensuring all rooms were in pristine condition daily.
They all totally made our trip and it will be one we will cherish for years to come. Thank you also for the wonderful water bottles we brought back as tokens. Really loved the entire experience and we had a great family celebration. They are the real deal and the complete fabulous experience from owner to staff. Definitely will come again.

Trip of a LIFETIME
Casa La Villita was truly breathtaking. From the moment we arrived, we felt like royalty. There were 19 women attending my bachelorette party/30th birthday and every single one of us would rate the villa at 5 stars.

Perfect Spot for our Destination Wedding
My husband and I chose to celebrate our wedding with a five day trip to Casa La Villita with our friends and family - we could not have asked for a better venue or experience. We had a total of 20 friends occupying the villa, with family members staying at a nearby hotel. Fili, Victor, and the rest of the villa staff were helpful and friendly - they accommodated all of the unique needs that came with hosting our wedding at the villa, and the food and drinks they prepared were awesome (some of the best food we have ever eaten). Our group is already talking about a reunion trip next year - we would all love to come back. Morgan H.
This beautiful villa is a real gem close to town yet far enough away for peace and tranquility. I felt at home as soon as we walked in. The accommodations, food and hospitality were fantastic, and views of the ocean, bay and hills were spectacular. We are planning to come back. Thank you Karla and your warm and attentive staff. Lorrie J.
This was a big family trip involving 16 adults and 1 child. This place is AMAZING, comfortably accommodating all of us with ease. Property is immaculate, can't ask for better staff, and location is convenient. Karla, the owner, made sure our experience was positive throughout the stay. If you are looking for a place to accommodate a large group of people, no need to look further. We'd love to return every year, but life will unfortunately get in the way!!! Ben S.
I along with my fiancé and 8 other couples spent a Thursday-Sunday at this fabulous home to celebrate my 30th birthday. The house was such a great choice for us as it was steps to the beach and had a lovely pool. The house was decorated nicely and we loved how there were so many different sitting areas and decks to relax on. The staff was beyond excellent - their cooking was amazing. On our last night, they set up cocktails on the roof at sunset and and then threw a fun birthday dinner for me complete with singing, bubbles and a piñata! Filli and the staff remained extremely attentive throughout the weekend, restocking the fridge with anything we needed. I would definitely return to this property again. Raquel R
Look no further as this house is fantastic in every aspect. Immaculate, impeccable service, incredible food and relaxing atmosphere. We were only able to stay 3 days but loved every minute! The photos reflect exactly what it is like. We would go again! Hails K.
My wife and I spent a week in late February at this beautiful villa with a dozen other friends. We were able to take advantage of yoga, surfing, massage, lots of down time for reading and even a few afternoon naps. The evenings were for dinner out at a few very reasonably priced Puerto Vallarta restaurants. A funny thing happened midweek where we all collectively reached a similar conclusion. The food and staff were far superior to what was considered to be good restaurant food. We ended up eating almost all of our meals at the villa later in the week. For those of us who cannot be unconnected from work, it should be mentioned that both the internet access and speed were excellent. Also, for those not fond of an ocean experience, the large pool and surrounding area provided a lot of sun and shade. Lastly, our private suite was large and well appointed with a nice spacious bathroom and plenty of hot water. Ben, Boston
February escape to beautiful Casa la Vallita. We spent the week doing yoga in this perfect setting, eating wonderful fresh food, relaxing at the lovely pool and ocean access., The staff were amazing and took care of our every need. Our group hopes to return in the years to come. Bahkti, Pa
