“Villa Karaway (Heavenly)”

Reviewed 24 Mar 2016

We rented Villa Karaway for a week and it was the most wonderful experience of our lives. My son made the remark he thought he died and went to heaven. The Villa has 4 bedrooms and 5 bathroom each of the bedroom has their own bathroom and each room is very comfortable. The porch by the infinity pool was so beautiful in the morning to drink coffee and enjoy the crashing of the ocean waves. The beautiful sunset on the porch in the evenings was a sight to behold. The children were in the pool at all times when we were at the Villa. The staff was so wonderful, with Enrique Perez as the concierge, Gloria our maid, who saw that everything in the Villa was tidy and clean and we always had dry clean towels for the pool. Last but not least was Elba our cook who we all fell in love with, she would go on the bus to buy our groceries and would cook the most wonderful meals each day. Our thanks to Wayne and Karen Harding for the use of their beautiful Villa, best value in Puerto Vallarta. We are already planning for a return trip in the future. Thank You Shirley Williams

“Unbelieveable Week!”

Reviewed 27 Aug 2015

Villa Karaway far exceeded our expectations. The week was perfect! Online photos, videos, and descriptions are great, but nothing compares the the colors and reality of this villa. The accommodations are exceptional - comfortable beds, extremely clean, personal pool, great furniture, and more. We loved having a personal chef - Elba was unreal. If you've never experienced a vacation where someone personally cooks yours meals, this is a must! If you uttered a desire, Elba would surprise you by making it happen the next day ("I've never tried Molé." Next day, "Try this.") We paid for the groceries and the cost was extremely reasonable. This property is perfect for watching the sunset. Excellent quiet beach immediately at the property. Some PV beaches can get a little rocky - not this one - perfect sand beach. Great snorkeling, kayaking, and swimming. The resort pool is great as well. Easy and quick cab ride to the heart of PV. Be sure to get out on the water - snorkeling, fishing, kayaking, etc. We loved our boat ride down the coast - especially the small village of Boca de Tomatlan. My wife and I have traveled to Mexico many many times and this was far and away our favorite place. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS VILLA!

“Great stay at Villa Karaway!”

It was so fun and relaxing to enjoy yoga, great food and awesome company at Punta Playa Negra in Puerto Vallarta! We can't wait to return to Villa Karaway!

Owner's reply: Thanks Kim! You bring so much joy to the Villa. We cannot wait to have you back.

“Joy at Villa Karaway”

Reviewed 11 May 2015

Peaceful, joyful, creative, fun, classy! The views of the water, listening to the ocean and just being in the Villa itself is spectacular, restful, peaceful and it will rejuvenate you every moment you are there! Each room is a delight with comfortable and pretty beds & pillows. You will sleep very safely and soundly! Great, roomy & clean bathrooms. Meals were amazing and plentiful! You feel far away from the hustle but there is easy access to anywhere because cabs are parked nearby and easy to get anytime. This is a 5 Star Villa!

Owner's reply: Thank you Cathy! We are excited to have you back to paradise soon!

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!

Owner's reply: Mick - thank you for staying with us. We always try to exceed our guest's expectations. Hurry back and visit. Cheers Wayne

“Villa Karaway is breath-taking!!!”

Reviewed 2 Dec 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!
