Description of the Puerto Vallarta vacation villa rental
Puerto Vallarta Beach Front Villa rental, imagine this ... a boutique 4 bedroom hotel to yourself! Yes, this appropriately describes Villa Karaway: 4 bedrooms all air conditioned, en suite (with bathrooms), a wonderful staff under your direction and an incredible set of common areas - kitchen, living room, dinning room, porch and your own private infinity pool. Please read on...

Villa Karaway (VK) is the ultimate Puerto Vallarta Beach Villa! A rare find on the powdery sands of Puerto Vallarta. The home is RIGHT on the beach. Please read the entire description, but first some ideas to save money and select the proper home.

When shopping for a home for your hard earned vacation in PV, make sure the ask the following:
1. Is the home right on the beach, or do you have to walk to the beach?
2. Is there SAND on the beach? Except for downtown and north of town, sandy beaches are rare. We have sand on our beach!
3. Are there any additional charges? VK rates are all inclusive, you just pay for the food and drinks that our chief prepares, along with tips.
4. Exactly where are you located in PV? No hype from us. You are 6 km south of town (about 12 minutes away), so you have the town amenities, without the hustle an bustle. We are right on the bus route (50 cents to town), or cabs are usually parked by the complex ($6 into town).

With over 4000 square feet of pure luxury, this four bedroom, five bath vacation rental is ideal for corporate meetings, family reunions, or just an intimate get-away. Many rooms have 12-foot high ceilings - just right for bringing in the incredible views of the Bay and Mountain Ranges around Puerto Vallarta.

See the end of this description for other guest comments, but this comment from a NYC guest sums it up - "Absolute Paradise!"

Make no mistake - this villa is right on the beach. The beach is beautiful with a protective rock reef creating a wonderful family swimming area and an incredible sandy beach. Let the professional staff of a full-time maid and gourmet cook pamper you. It is your vacation - so enjoy it!

You enter your two-story vacation home (named "Villa Karaway") from a private iron gate into a masterfully constructed tiled hallway. To the right, past the sitting area, is the lower bedroom with two single beds, which can be make into a king bed (all bedrooms have air conditioning), a walk-in closet, and private bath. Close by is the washer and dryer. To the left of the hallway is the open-air patio with splendid plants.

Up five tile-covered steps is another hallway. Turn left and you enter the gourmet kitchen (Viking stove, Sub-Zero refrigerator - but why care - you have your own chef!), bar, walk-in pantry, table for four, and bathroom. Proceeding past the kitchen is the dining room with seating for eight. Past the dining room is the living room with floor-to-ceiling glass sliding walls to another outdoor patio with lighted palms, the downstairs porch, and the private infinity pool. Just past your pool is the wondrous Los Palmares Beach.

Proceed the other way down the entrance-way hallway and you arrive at bedroom two. This is a bedroom with one queen and one king bed, a large walk-in closet, and an even larger bathroom. There is a large window that opens to the interior patio.

Up the stairs further is bedroom three with two double beds, 12-foot high ceiling, a large window opening to the interior patio, TV and VCR, and private bath.

Further down the hallway is the ultimate, master bedroom with a king-size bed. Floor-to-ceiling movable windows separate the bedroom to the upstairs patio. There is also a large window providing a view to the famous Los Arcos islands just off the shore of Puerto Vallarta. The master also contains a sitting area, large walk-in closet, and a bath that is also a jetted tub, steam, and a ten-side spigot shower. For those that are traditional, a normal showerhead is available.

Enjoy the views including dolphins and whales playing in one of the largest bays on the continent.

You will NOT be DISAPPOINTED with Karaway or the Los Palmares facilities! Villa Karaway is part of the classy Los Palmares condominium complex. It was recently completed in late 1999. Everything is in tip top condition, including the large infinity pool, jacuzzi, kid's pool, and exercise room. There is also ample parking and 24-hour security. It is located just under six kilometers to the south of downtown Puerto Vallarta and is on the city bus route for easy transportation.

We have wireless high speed internet connection. So bring your laptop or use the computer provided at the Villa. We also have a phone for free, unlimited phone calls back to the US and Canada.

Guest book comments (we would put in more, but have a space limitation):
"What a breathtaking house surrounded by such a magnificent setting. I now have a concrete vision of what heaven might really look like when I close my eyes. I honestly don't think that it is possible to describe with mere words. From the lush, green hillside to the sun setting into the ocean...from Adela's unbelievable Mexican feast to the kind smiles and welcoming faces of everyone we encountered...It is truly a memory that we will carry with us forever.

"What a marvelous place to come and visit. We just don't want to go home. God's seam between land and water, and right in the middle is your beautiful casa." -Guests, Denver, CO

"WOW!" - Austin TX

"If you don't love this - give up! You won't be happy in heaven!" - Chicago, IL

We've been traveling to sunny Mexico for many years, but it only took a few hours at Villa Karaway to realize we were done with the big resorts because we found our home away from home! The beach is incredible and private, the sand is soft and the surf-casting is great (it's part of a wildlife reserve - we even got to help save a baby sea turtle!) - and Chef Elba will get you a fishing charter that picks you up right on the beach (she's very well connected and the ultimate concierge for more than just fishing - and her friends prices are the best around! Next time we'll tour the botanic gardens as she suggested.). The home is perfect, it's open, airy and breathes the ocean breeze, and Elba's cooking is excellent! The house will sleep a small army, so invite the whole family down! We were part of a Yoga retreat (with Shauna) which was beyond incredible and just what we needed, dare I even say life changing - oh ya, we'll be back, hand's down the best money I ever spent on a vacation!

Villa Karaway is breath-taking!!!

December 2, 2014

This Villa is the most beautiful place I have ever stayed at while on vacation. The ocean is just steps away, I love the friendly staff, they go above and beyond to make each day special by preparing mouth watering meals, and mixing up your favorite adult beverage. The Villa has spectacular views from almost every room. The master suite is AMAZING, you can lie in the bed and look out over the ocean while listening to the waves roll in. If you are going to visit Puerto Vallarta, then Villa Kataway is the place to stay. I absolutely LOVE it! I'm going back to visit this coming February and I can hardly wait!

Owner's reply:

Thanks Michelle! Look forward to having you back! ENJOY!

Blissful Oasis

November 20, 2014

This property is absolutely gorgeous. It feels like you are in a private home not a condo property. The bedrooms (I have stayed in two of them) have the most comfortable beds and feels so welcoming. The beach is just steps away from the private infinity pool on property. The beach is quiet and beautiful white sand! You can hear the waves throughout the entire house. Elba, the cook personalizes your every meal which are delicious! Overall, if you are looking for a property to relax, enjoy the sound and site of the ocean, and have everything taken care of including meals and housekeeping: THIS IS THE PROPERTY FOR YOU! Villa Karaway to me is my blissful oasis!

Wayne Harding

Owner's reply:

Thanks Kim! Cannot wait to have your awesome energy back at the property!
