Perched above the Acapulco skyline and enjoying marvelous views of the huge bay, Villa Scala is a supremely elegant luxury vacation rental home on the Pacific coast of Mexico. Boasting colonial Spanish architecture, this haven of peace and privacy has a touch of Tuscany and a distinctly Mediterranean feel. Long home to Julio Iglesias, Villa Scala has hosted an impressive roll-call of famous guests, including Frank Sinatra, Errol Flynn, Rita Hayworth, Elvis Presley, Prince Charles, and many, many more. Elizabeth Taylor was even married here in 1957 to the third of her eight husbands, Michael Todd. Villa Scala is framed by verdant Sierra and is the only private villa on the grounds of the renowned Villa Vera Hotel Spa and Racquet Club. This superlative Acapulco vacation rental villa features a multitude of pools, waterfalls, fountains, paths, and gardens, providing the perfect surroundings for relaxing in a spacious and luxurious setting. Artists and artisans have lovingly renovated the old walls and ceilings and created superb artwork and frescos around the property, while the elegant furnishings have been collected from many countries around the world.

This outstanding Acapulco ocean-view holiday home has four spacious and luxurious air-conditioned suites in the main house and a guest house with its own living room. Each bedroom suite has its own bathroom with beautiful Talavera tiles. The first-class amenities are what you would expect from an exclusive luxury vacation rental accommodation in one of the world’s top vacation destinations. The charming olde-worlde kitchen features a tiled dome ceiling and arches, while the expansive and luxurious living and dining areas enjoy fabulous mountain and ocean views. Outdoor spaces include a palapa bar, dining and lounging areas, and gas and wood-burning barbecues. The jewel in the crown at Villa Scala is perhaps the huge gorgeous pool and waterfall, surrounded by lovely gardens where you’ll find mango, banana, orange, and lemon trees. This luxury Acapulco vacation rental villa is private and secluded and at the same time within walking distance of downtown Acapulco and its excellent shopping, restaurants, nightlife, and beaches. Guests at Villa Scala enjoy access to the luxury amenities of Villa Vera, including gym, restaurants, pool, bar, spa, tennis courts, and concierge services.

    Hi Guys, I had seen pictures of the villa on your website before I arrived, so I basically new what to expect. What I didn’t anticipate was the spectacular setting, particularly overlooking the bay where I wound up spending my ‘chill time’ after dinner watching the sun fade into the horizon. From the moment that I arrived at Villa Scala, I knew what is like to die and go to heaven! The whole atmosphere was all encompassing with attention to the smallest detail and the most magnificent aura I have ever witnessed on a vacation. I immediately felt at home as I pranced around the amazing grounds and viewed the villa from various different angles. I was most intrigued by the way the sunsets seemed to create a color change of the interior walls in the main living and dinning area. I have never seen anything like that before and found the experience to be mystical and magical. Lastly, but certainly not least, was the warmth of your company and the spectacular 5-star service from your staff. They were always just a moment away when anything was needed and yet never under my feet, so I felt free and attended to at the same time. And the meals were not to be believed! They were prepared with tender love and executed into a masterful presentation at every meal, whether it was breakfast, lunch or dinner. I’m sure you realize that you have one of the best chefs in the country. I am really looking forward to my next visit.

    Ricardo was so much more than a private Butler. He served our favorite cocktails all day as we relaxed around the pool and in the cabana. Ricarda has to be one of Acapulco's best chefs. The Thanksgiving dinner for fourteen was set under the Acapulco stars and was delicious. It was such a relaxing weekend. Your formal areas are beautiful but we chose the 'Al Fresco' dining area for most meals and just chilled at the pool and under the palapa. I've stayed in many mansions in Acapulco but none as grand, yet quietly elegant, as Villa Scala. Your eclectic artwork, the specialty painting, and furniture are amazing. Every piece is perfect. The way you maintained the original look of the mansion even with the major master bedroom expansion is appreciated. After dinner, we relaxed to see the magnificent sunset give way to the millions of twinkling city lights and stars above. Your staff knew how to use the hi-tech sound system to create the exact mood we were looking for! Villa Scala reminded us all of how beautiful Acapulco really is. I needed that!
