  1. We just returned from a Christmas Vacation at VLE. Everything was better than we could of imagined. The condo was in a perfect location with great views of the ocean. The condo itself is just beautiful and the perfect size too (we rented the 2 bedroom unit). We loved the beach, the pool, and the poolside restaurant with great guac and chips and wonderful people working at the resort. The fitness room and the Spa were first class! All we can say is that we would rent again from Bill. A huge bonus is the town Bucerias only a 10 minute drive or 30 minute walk on the beach is full of great restaurants and friendly people. The concierge at VLE will book anything for you too. Don't hesitate book today for your next vacation. 31 December 2011 - 01:23:30

    This place is great. Everything is top notch! My wife and I took four of our kids here in June. The ages were 17 to 2 years. The rooms are very spacious and super clean. We never felt cramped at all. The way the rooms are layed out you actually feel like you have a bit of privacy (even with kids!) My kids loved the place. The pool area was beautiful and peaceful. It even has a splash pad my 2 yr daughter loved. If you are looking for louder music and entertainment you might want to look at villa del mar - The sister property next door. If you want a relaxing peaceful vacation...this is the place. Bill was very easy to deal with and very accommodating. 29 July 2012 - 04:31:41
  3. We just booked another week at this great location for this winter! We loved the location and the amenities both within the unit and the overall complex as a whole. The staff is great. Great times laying at the pool or on the beach. We took advantage of the local activities as well such as playing tennis on the complex and renting waverunners on the beach. It is a short walk on the beach into town as well. I highly recommend it to others. 09 August 2012 - 03:10:02

    Villa La Estancia is a beautiful and serene resort and Bill's two bedroom villa is perfect for our family of four (including 9 and 10 year old girls). The villa is clean, very spacious, nicely decorated and has an enormous balcony with a fabulous ocean view. The resort itself has a wonderful staff and a very quiet, elegant vibe--perfect for a relaxing vacation! Bucerias is less than 10 minutes away by cab (or a 30 minute walk up the beach) and has many terrific dining options. We've rented this villa twice and it has been a simple and hassle free process. We hope to return many, many times! 13 November 2012 - 23:17:39

    We just returned back from Villa La Estancia, 1403A&B. Here is the list of sample questions that I'll respond to: Was the listing description accurate regarding the location? - Yes, the listing was accurate. The listing correctly described the unit, the location and the property. Did the listing photos accurately reflect the rentals appearance and amenities? - Yes, the listing photos accurately reflected the rental's appearance and amenities. Our view from the balcony was spectacular. Was the property clean and well-maintained? - Absolutely! Was the owner helpful in answering your questions or concerns? - More than helpful. Very pleasant to deal with. Would you recommend this property to a friend or relative? - Absolutely. What nearby activities, attractions and restaurants would you recommend? - So, we were adventurous and took a trip to Bucerias. I would not recommend this activity. While the restaurant was good (Miguel Angel), the town was, sorry to say, a dump. We couldn't even eat dinner without feeling harassed by the locals selling sterling silver. The meal, while very good, was expensive (IMO). And, the alcoholic drinks didn't really have any alcohol. - We were also brave and took a day trip using the 'local' transportation on the Beach Boy. This was a very cheap day trip. However, it was chaotic getting to the location and getting home. You get what you pay for. Still, we went in with low expectations and were not disappointed. All in all, it was a fun day, but I wouldn't do it again. - We also took a trip to Las Caletas using Vallarta Adventures. It cost about 4 times what we paid for the other trip. The whole experience with this company was fantastic. The location was out of this world. I would recomment this trip in a second. - Our trip to the mega grocerty store. So, one of the nice things about the resort is that you get a kitchen. Since we have kids with food allergies, this was a bonus. We went to the mega (5 mins) to shop. It was intimidating. Nothing in english and very few english speaking employees. We managed, but it was tough. - Finally, the resort, Villa La Estancia. Very nice resort and grounds. Pool was excellent, staff were friendly. Lunch was resonably priced at the outdoor restaurant. We didn't hit the indoor restaurant. Only thing I can say, we were really glad we weren't staying next door at the Villa del Palmar Flamingos. What a zoo. The onsite market had what we needed in a pinch. Great! 05 August 2013 - 22:40:47

    This property and unit are amazing ~ so amazing we will be booking again for next year as soon as flights are out. For us, the timing, in the summer, was awesome. The owner, Bill, is very accommodating, informative, helpful and wonderful to deal with. Can't say enough good things in regards to our dealing with him. Oh and he answer's all our emails very promptly. This condo is PERFECTION! We fell asleep to the sounds of the ocean waves every night. Watching the sunsets from the balcony was amazing. having coffee on the balcony before going down to the pool was wonderful. The unit is so clean and VERY well stocked. There was nothing that we needed extra for the room. LOVE the ice maker in the fridge. The master bed was shockingly comfortable. And the master bath was so roomy. The whole place was spectacular You are made to feel at home as soon as you step out of your cab. They even say "Welcome Home", upon arrival. Everyone remembered our names and addressed us that way. The pool staff.......Angel, the concierge, was at our chairs with two towels just as we got to them in the morning. Always had time for a chat and a smile. Alonso, our waiter, well you can't ask for better!!! We had so much fun with him and NEVER went without a drink or a meal. He would even remind us it was lunch time and did we want our "usual". The staff are so kind, warm and caring. I would very highly recommend VLE and renting from Bill!! He was very easy and great to deal with. Thank you so much Bill for making our second honeymoon a memory that we will forever cherish. 04 September 2013 - 14:34:43

    Resort life doesn't get better than this! We have visited Villa La Estancia and rented #1403 numerous times over the last few years. We absolutely love everything about the resort and #1403!! We thoroughly appreciate the elegance, beauty and serenity of the Villa La Estancia. The resort is absolute paradise, which is why it's become an annual tradition for us. Feels like a honeymoon every time. The staff is incredibly professional and fun. One of our favorite things about coming back is seeing the same staff members year after year. Villa La Estancia has the most incredible food and service we have ever experienced any where, hands down! We thorough enjoy working directly with Bill! He is patient, friendly, organized, and completely on top of all of the arrangement details. Ahhh, that's so nice! We feel lucky to be able to rent his incredible condo, #1403. It is immaculate, gorgeous and relaxing. Plus the VIEW is AMAZING!! **HIGHLY RECOMMEND VLE #1403*** 15 January 2014 - 20:51:32

    We really enjoyed our stay at Villa la Estancia. The condo was perfect, very clean and we particularly loved the spacious balcony. The condo met all our needs especially with 2 preschool age children. There were games in the condo and beach toys at the pool. The staff at Villa la Estancia rivaled the staff at the Four Seasons and St Regis in Punta Mita. They were extremely helpful, kind and quick to meet our needs and answer any questions. During our stay some sea turtles hatched on the beach and the staff was thoughtful enough to call us to let us know that they would be releasing them in the evening and to bring the kids down to watch. They loved it! We would stay at Bill's place again in a heartbeat. He was very easy to work with and answered any questions promptly. Thanks for helping make our stay so enjoyable. We hope to visit again soon! 23 February 2014 - 17:12:08

    We had a wonderful time here. Greeted at the check in with a glass (3) of bubbly, treated like kings, condo absolutely top notch. Friendly people, great food, even good golf and fishing, touring etc. The staff could help with anything we needed. The Condo owners were most helpful in dealing with arrangements when changes were needed. "I'll Be BACK". 25 April 2014 - 16:21:15

    The property was wonderful and our unit was clean, large, and beautiful. The unit was stocked with many helpful items, such as laundry detergent, sun block, dishwashing soap, toiletries. The balcony was the highlight of the unit with amazing sun sets every night. The owner, Bill, was extremely accessible and responsive before and during our stay which we really appreciated. The staff at the property were very friendly. It was a family friendly environment and relaxing atmosphere overall (except for the at times loud music from the swim up bar). The beach was spotless thanks to the staff at Estancia. The property was extremely clean and we were very impressed with the absence of bugs even in the humid and hot environment. The only down side to the trip was the food, especially the lack of healthy options and the average quality of the food at the pool side restaurant. 14 August 2014 - 03:15:33

    Perfect location of this well-equipped and spacious unit, overlooking the pool area and a large part of the beach and the ocean bay. My wife and I highly enjoyed our 18-day stay. It's an easy five minute drive (or longer beach walk) to our favorite destination, the small town of Bucerias with plenty of small shops and non-expensive restaurants. The owners were uncommonly helpful in adapting to our practical needs. The La Estancia crew is very friendly and service-minded. We plan to be back! 04 January 2015 - 01:14:35
  13. The Villa La Estancia is a modern and well maintained resort on a wonderful stretch of the Banderas Bay beach. If you're looking for a resort environment complete with attentive pool-side food and drink service, you can't do much better in the Puerto Vallarta area. The well appointed, clean, and very spacious unit and huge deck overlooking the ocean enabling a sunset view are things we really enjoyed. For what you get, we think it's great value. It's an easy 20 minute beach walk to Bucerias so Villa La Estancia is well situated. Really quiet in the evenings if you're looking for solitude. The owners were a pleasure to deal with. The kitchen was well appointed if you intend on eating in but the onsite restaurants serve quality food. We liked that potable water and ice was delivered directly from the fridge and removed the water hassle ever-present in Mexico. The beds were comfortable and the wifi service within the unit was completely first-world -- a requirement for us as we enjoy steaming Netflix in the evening and had to work while we were away. We'd absolutely consider going back! Thanks Bill and Janice. 22 January 2015 - 18:34:25
  14. First, I'm really glad I stayed at Villa la Estancia over any of the other properties I was looking at, and definitely over Villa del Palmar next door. La Estancia is so much calmer and it's definitely a big step up in quality. Second, if you want the Villa del Palmar activities next door, you can easily do that--the resorts aren't huge and it's a 1 minute walk--it's as if they're one property. The only disappointments for us for the resort were that 1) our 7 and 10 year olds weren't allowed in the hot tub (no one under 16 allowed--this is the same next door at Villa del Palmar), and that the pool wasn't open a little later--it was open until 8 and they extended until 9 pm, but we wished it were 10pm just because it can be so hot during the day that it's really nice at night. Second, I'm SO GLAD I stayed in Bill Smith's unit! The reality is that all units at Villa La Estancia should be nice, but Bill's was great for us for a number of reasons. First, Bill is incredibly responsive and trustworthy. He responded to every question I asked within 24 hours or less, and always provided more information than I asked for with great additional tips. He was also great about the cleaning deposit--refunded it back to us Also, his unit has a great location--steps from pool and beach. Finally, we had friends who stayed in another unit (also lovely), but I really appreciated all the stuff Bill left there for us to use--laundry detergent, bug spray, plastic bags, plastic wrap and foil, etc. It's also clear that Bill really lives in his unit--his kitchen was much more well equipped with kitchen implements, food storage, spices and condiments. It's nice when you want to grill just one meal to not have to buy the basics like oil, salt, and pepper. Finally, Bill's price included three days of maid service (and for some reason we ended up getting it every single day without paying extra). Normally, you have to pay $50/day for that maid service. When you factor that in, Bill's unit is a really good deal. Our friends didn't have those little extras. This is a perfect unit at a great value. Stay here! 21 June 2015 - 20:04:09

    Our stay at Villa La Estancia was our second, each time in the same unit. Our family of six was completely comfortable; plenty of room in a fantastic villa, very clean, well stocked with daily necessities if you decide to prepare meals in the kitchen or outside BBQ. Rooms were well suited for our teens and Netfilx provided for some great movie nights after a long day at the pool/beach. The unit faces northwest so there are great opportunities for some wonderful sunsets. For about a $5 cab, you can easily get to the Mega store (similar to a Fred Meyer) for food and amenities. The facility has an on site doctor/clinic and was able to prescribe an antibiotic for a very reasonable price. The staff is absolutely fantastic. Lucio, Carlos, Oscar, Angel, Gerardo, Jasmine and Mariel (Spa) and others are very attentive to guests and are exceptional at what they do. We'll be back again - hopefully, sooner than later. Thanks Bill!! 28 July 2015 - 06:27:21

    First off I have to say that dealing with Bill was amazingly simple and the transaction could not have been easier. This is our second time staying at VLE in Puerto Vallarta but first time in Bill's unit. I would highly recommend staying in 1403 and we hope to be back there again next year! The location on the property was perfect, great ocean views and close to the elevators. The kitchen was stocked with everything we need which made cooking a breeze. The every other day housekeeping (that Bill pays for) was also a great bonus. This gave us fresh linens, soaps, shampoo and towels throughout the week. For those of you looking for a place to spend some relaxing time with the family in an amazing resort, look no further than Bill's unit. I highly recommend both the A and B units which gives a family of 4 plenty of room to relax. Last thing you want on a vacation is people tripping over each other in a small room. The Wi-Fi, Netflix and Wii also came in handy for two teen-aged boys after a long day at the pool and ocean. I cant say enough about the resort as well. It is our favorite place to stay in Mexico. The massive MEGA store just up the street helps get you stocked for food and beverages throughout the week (just 65 pesos each way) while the restaurants in Bucerias (85 peso one way) are very good. We did not each much on the property because we like to get out into the surrounding areas and we do some cooking in the unit as well (the Weber BBQ on the patio works great). Huge thanks again to Bill for sharing his unit with our family and I look forward to my next trip to VLE #1403. It surely cant come soon enough. 02 September 2015 - 17:10:16

    1403 is a wonderful unit, perfect for families. There is lots of space and a well stocked kitchen which we used for many meals. The owner was great to deal with and very fast to respond to questions. We definitely plan on renting again. 09 December 2015 - 19:23:19

    We had a fantastic vacation at Villa La Estancia suite 1403. Since the moment we arrived and entered the lobby we were greeted kindly and offered a glass of champagne; What a wonderful way to relax after a day of flying. The resort is beautiful and elegant. The pool was awesome and the service was excellent. My boys enjoyed the water activities at the beach. They loved parasailing, jet-skiing and kayaking. Since we were vacationing with another family, we rented two suites: 1402 & 1403. We were impressed by the size of the condos. They were both clean, beautiful and very comfortable; They had everything we needed. Suite 1403 had many extras, such as Netflix and X-box game system with games. We highly recommend staying at either of these suites. We will definitely be back at VLE. 30 June 2016 - 21:25:47

    The Villa La Estancia is a beautiful quality resort with five-star service. This property is different from other timeshare properties because the units are owned, not just a week in a unit. This means there are typically fewer people and a higher level of service. Bills condo was very comfortable, convenient and well appointed. The Villa La Estancia is a sister property to the Villa de Palmar Flamingos next door which is a timeshare property with many more people and pool, beach and group activities. It was nice to stay more exclusive and still have full access to all the amenities next door. As this was a family vacation, everyone was able to do their own thing and still provide the perfect pool and swim-up bar for afternoon gatherings. 20 minutes to Puerta Vallarta by cab and a 40 minute beach walk to the small town of Bucerais for shopping and more excellent restaurants. We also spend a day as a family fishing and caught some Rooster Fish which the facility restaurant prepared for our dinner that night. It was a great family trip and your condo was a perfect match for our needs. Thanks Bill. We look forward to our next visit. 18 November 2016 - 18:21:00

    Villa La Estancia is a fabulous property, with very spacious units, a relatively quiet beach and pool area and easy access to the nearby town of Buceras. This unit is very well appointed, from the well-stocked kitchen to TVs with Netflix, and it has a beautiful balcony that stretches across both bedrooms and the living room, with great water views. The food on property was good, but for breakfast and dinner we enjoyed taking a quick $5 taxi ride into Buceras where we found our favorite breakfast spot, Paninos. We also went to central Puerto Vallarta one night, less than a $15 taxi ride away. La Estancias gym was very good, and the spa was incredible. There are more restaurants and a little market at their sister property next door, but La Estancia is definitely the nicer place to be. Bill was a great host and made everything about our trip easy. 07 January 2018 - 18:52:00
