With more than 7600 square feet of living space, Hacienda de Los Santos is regarded by many as one of the finest villas in Puerto Vallarta, offering stunningly panoramic views over the Bay of Banderas (the house is perched high on the hill, with no house above it). This exceptional villa is built in the traditional Mexican hacienda style (and to California earthquake standards), combining the best of the Old and New Worlds. The house boasts an infinity pool and separate spa/hot tub. Hacienda de Los Santos offers comfortable modern amenities, furnished with beautiful antiques and modern art.
The Hacienda is located on a cliff in the exclusive residential enclave of Real de Conchas Chinas (only 11 homes are set inside this gated and guarded community), adjoining the famed Conchas Chinas neighborhood. The house’s panoramic ocean, city and mountain views are unrivaled. You will be pampered in this custom-designed and meticulously built home with its carved Cantera columns and balustrades, Spanish Alhambra tiles, bold arches, copper and crystal chandeliers, matte tikul flooring, vaulted brick bóveda ceilings, potted flowers and plants, cupolas, and private patios and “Juliet” balconies. Four bedrooms face inward over an inner courtyard and pool, enjoying sweeping views of the Bay of Banderas. A separate casita has its own living room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, with views of the mountains, jungle, and Bay, and is a favorite of those wanting a bit more privacy.
You’ll begin your day with platters of fresh fruit, fresh-squeezed juices, and with breakfast cooked to order. Huevos Mexicanos and Huevos Rancheros are just two of Rosa’s many specialties. You can swim, enjoy a pool-side nap or the sun, explore Puerto Vallarta (a five-minute taxi ride away), or be entertained by an Apple type TV system with thousands of movies and programs, an audio surround system in the living area, high-end iPod station and outdoor speakers, a library, and more. There’s even an office for those unfortunates who have to do some work while at the house. Telephone calls (we have two lines) to the US and Canada are free.
Our guests consistently report that a favorite Hacienda feature is our very dedicated staff of three: the houseman, the maid, and a great cook, who, in the best Mexican tradition, endeavor to see that your every need is met. The staff works 6 days a week (Sundays and National Holidays are off) but can often be hired to work off-hours and days. For example, if guests arrive on a Sunday, the staff will work and take different days off. Dinner parties are a favorite event for our guests, with seating for up to 28 (fee and/or additional staffing may apply).
