In the small village of Bucerias, just 25 minutes north of the Puerto Vallarta International Airport, lies this private, ocean-front estate. Recently renovated by its new owners, this magnificent villa is fully staffed and can accommodate up to 16 guests. The main house is over 5,000 square feet and consists of five beautifully decorated bedrooms that open on to private terraces, all with king size beds and private bathrooms. Two of the rooms have ocean views while the remaining three have pool views. The downstairs Master bedroom (one of three) is very spacious and can accommodate a person in a wheelchair. There is a large great room on the main floor that opens to a covered patio for outdoor dining with views of the ocean and garden. In addition, the home features a media room with a 42" wide screen TV (high definition), DVD and VCR player, satellite television, wireless high speed internet access, an "all in one" HP fax machine with printer, copier and scanner. There is also a dedicated phone line where guest can make unlimited calls to the US and Canada at no charge. The media room also has two day beds and a game table.
Beyond the main house, in the center of the estate, is the Jr. Size Olympic pool and guest house. The guest house consists of two bedrooms, separated by a kitchenette, each with a private bathroom and a king size bed. This small house is only rented along with the main property, never separately. All rooms on the estate have their own central air conditioning system. Maids, cook, caretaker, gardener and bilingual property manger are included in the rental price. The property can also accommodate a small private wedding at an extra cost.
The villa is located in Bucerias on the Bay of Banderas with miles of white sandy beaches in either direction of the property. The beach is extremely safe and clean. The village of Bucerias has many wonderful restaurants and gift shops all within walking distance from the estate. There are also many leisure activities offered locally, such as, surfing, sport fishing, parasailing, jungle adventures, swimming with the dolphins and horseback riding. Bucerias is located between Puerto Vallarta and The Four Seasons Resort in Punta Mita, approximately 25 minutes to either destination.
Bienvenidos a Villa Encanto! Over the years, our family has been coming to Bucerias to enjoy Villa Encanto like its many guests. The beautiful people, ocean, and surrounding area is so intoxicating that in 2005 we decided to purchase this beautiful home.
Since then, we have been working diligently to prepare the Villa for your stay, and we are excited to welcome you!
For those of you who have stayed with us before, we’re excited to welcome you back. You will notice new Spanish tile flooring in the main living room and the downstairs master bedroom, and Casita. New energy-efficient dual pane windows and doors. Additionally, you will find new furnishings, king beds in all eight (8) bedrooms + the studio (9 king beds total), new beddings, draperies, artwork, lighting, and a state-of-the-art air conditioning system. We’ve also created an incredible media room in the basement where you can enjoy a 70” Smart HDTV with Netflix, YouTube, and other popular apps. The TV is connected to “SKY” satellite service and has an HDMI port for a computer or Apple TV connections. We have also installed a SONOS sound system which gives you full control. For those who just can’t get away from the office, we have WIFI with 200MB access points throughout the villa, an HP multifunction fax/printer/scanner, and a Vonage Internet line for all of your long-distance calls to the US or Canada – for FREE!

Perfect for a Family Reunion
Elaine - Jan 29, 2020
“We had a group of 17, including three children under ten. The Villa was amazing! We were all blown away by the beautiful location and the pristine condition of the house. It was clean, and the bedrooms were perfect for our group. We also used the casita in the back, and it was awesome.
Being able to wake up and go right to the front patio to view the beach was amazing. We loved every minute of it. Esther was extremely helpful and answered our questions before and during the trip. The staff was great they were very helpful and made the best meals and drinks for us. Special shout out to Patricia and Isaac. Patricia made delicious dinners and desserts. (The Key Lime pie is a must) and Isaac always made sure we had our favorite drinks made for dinner.
We all agreed we would not stay in a resort again, and if we had the chance to recreate our family vacation in a couple of years, we would book in again in a second!”

“This house and property were absolutely amazing. Everything was exactly how it was described on this site from the stunning views to the gorgeous home. The staff makes you feel as if you are at a luxury resort, although still having the privacy of a home. Esther, the property manager, stopped by a few times to make sure everything was going smoothly and she also helped us plan our outings and transportation. The drinks and food were incredible. We were a large multi-generational group of 22 people & the home did not feel crowded at all. The wonderful outdoor spaces of the pool, patio, and beach area were awesome. The entire group commented it was one of the best houses we have rented & we will definitely be back. The location is great too, as you can walk into the cute little town of Bucerias. I highly recommend this property.”
A Hidden Gem

“I’ve had the pleasure of staying three times at Villa Encanto. Tim, Esther, Patti and staff know how to take care of your every need. This is a “Hidden Diamond” and the accommodations are first class. The food is fantastic and so are the sunsets!”

“Best vacation ever! We were a group of 10 women and 2 men. Some of us knew each other and others we didn't...but by the end of our week, we were all good buddies. The villa is 5-star in every way. Great location on the beach with a massage tent steps from the property. Had 5 massages for $10 each and gave the therapists $5 tips. What a treat!!
The food was excellent and margaritas were outstanding and the staff was very friendly and efficient. After my room was cleaned, I could smell the cleaning agents they used...didn't miss a spot!
The staff was great! Wonderful meals with a Mexican flair, lots of guacamole and chips, and beautiful salads! It was fun sitting around the pool drinking Mexican beer or any other drink we wanted....so intimate having our own private area. I would like to go back every year and hope that I can get my family there next year.”

Perfect For A Large Family Vacation!!
Maxwell - Apr 25, 2016
“Villa Encanto was perfect for our family of 10 adults & 4 children, ages 9 to 2. Plenty of room for everyone, lovely air-conditioned bedrooms. The pool is wonderful & the front yard was perfect for playing games. The beach patio with private sand & hammocks was enjoyed by all. The staff took such great care of us with delicious breakfast, the best guac, pico de gallo, smoothies & margaritas every afternoon and also delicious supper every night. A quick walk to the village square. The private charter to the fishing village took MUCH longer than expected with several getting seasick, so that wasn’t the best choice for us. We really just loved enjoying the property every day. The water isn’t clear, but it was warm & there were good waves for playing in.”
By special request, we also make arrangements for airport transfers, baby sitting, massages, mariachi bands, chauffered cars and flower delivery for that special occasion.
