Did You Get Your Skiing Done? Good! How About A Run To The Beach?

We talk about skiing so much this time of year.  Of course there’s a good reason.  Most of us love to ski, and this has been an amazing year for skiing.  The conditions here late in the season are better than ever.  So, don’t let us dissuade you if you’re headed for the slopes.  You all know we’ve got a lot of great options after a day of skiing to make you feel warm and pampered in Big Bear in one of our luxurious Five Star Vacation Rental cabins and estates.

But what if you’re one of those families who has actually had enough skiing this season?  Or maybe you just prefer a vacation someplace else? Well, we’ve got some great options for you to hit the beaches both in Southern California and in Puerto Nuevo, Mexico.

Our Southern California Beach properties are simply amazing.  We have weekly rentals spanning much of the Southern California coastline.  One of our favorites is in Laguna Beach.  This amazing property offers panoramic ocean views and the absolutely best quality furnishings and workmanship you can imagine.  It may be the only home you’ll ever visit where everyone in your party fights over who will do the dishes.  And for good reason.  The view from the kitchen is stunning, and you’ll find yourself standing there for hours just watching the waves and the sun as it slowly dips low in the horizon.  Be sure to double check the dishes when you’re done, though. With this sort of distraction, you may not be at your best scrubbing those plates clean.

If you’re in the mood for something a bit more exotic, we suggest you grab your passport and take the quick flight to Villa la Estancia, our resort on the beach in Puerto Nuevo.  This stunning high rise sits right on the beach and has all the amenities you’d expect of a top tier resort.  You can enjoy award-winning restaurants on site, or take a quick cab ride into Puerto Vallarta to take in the sights and enjoy the local cuisine.  It’s often much warmer this time of year, with March temps often reaching the 80’s and seldom dipping lower than the mid 60’s at night.  There will be occasional rain, but most days are just sun all day long. Spend a week sitting in the sun, and you’ll have a month of people back home asking you about your great tan.  It’s almost decadent.

Plan Your Winter Getaway to Mexico

It’s something the rich and famous have been doing for years.  Oversize sunglasses, floppy hats, and relaxing by the surf in winter were once solely the domain of the glitterati.  But those delights are no longer limited to just a select few.  As the weather turns a bit colder, increasing numbers of us love to flee for the warmer environment found south of the border.  And this time of year is perfect for a winter getaway to our resort in Villa la Estancia just outside Puerto Vallarta in Mexico.  Winter temperatures in the area seldom dip below the mid 60’s and highs are in the 80’s.  During December and January there are usually only a couple days of rain each month.  As with all of our destinations, its a place that will have you harboring thoughts of staying lost past when your vacation ends.

Villa la Estancia is situated just a short cab ride from the airport in Puerto Vallarta.  It’s located right on the beach, and is built on the premise that you simply cannot have too much luxury or pampering.  There are two gourmet restaurants on the premises, and plenty of space poolside to work on your tan.  Your most difficult decisions will be whether to have the steak or the lobster or both, and should you relax by the surf or by the pool?  We’re sure you get the picture.  And that picture gets even better once you put yourself and your family in it.

Each of our units is furnished with your comfort in mind, and you’ll be tempted to never leave.  But there are so many good reasons to venture out.  A short cab ride gets you into the heart of Puerto Vallarta where you can enjoy nearly endless shopping at stores filled with great knickknacks and creations of local artisans.  And you’ll want to pause throughout the day to enjoy the local cuisine as well.  The supply of fresh seafood and ethnic choices will have you stopping repeatedly throughout the day.

We have 16 amazing units at Villa la Estancia, so this is a perfect destination for groups of virtually any size. Are you beginning to feel the sand in your toes and smell the brisk ocean breeze?  Take a look at all of our Villa la Estancia vacation rental condos at this link:  http://fivestarvacationrental.com/area_VillaLaEstancia.php

If you’re looking for a getaway someplace else, please be sure to look at our luxury rentals in  Park CityPalm Springs/La Quinta Southern California BeachesMammoth Mountain, and Big Bear.  Regardless of where you may go, you’ll have the confidence of knowing that Five Star Vacation Rentals is working to make your vacation relaxing and memorable.

 

Make a Run For The Border

Summer vacation is ending soon, and you have maybe one last chance to make a big splash that you can all remember as an actual vacation.  Our suggestion this week is that you book a week away in one of our luxury vacation rental condos at Villa la Estancia in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.

Villa la Estancia is located just a short cab ride from the Puerto Vallarta airport.  LAX has frequent non stops that can get you there in about 3 hours.  The trip is absolutely worth it.  You board the plane in the pressure and heat of Los Angeles, and when you get off that plane just a few hours later, you’re going to be immersed in a tropical paradise.  It will seem more like a voyage on a time machine than an actual plane ride.

Villa la Estancia sits directly on the beach, and is one of the region’s most luxurious destinations.  Bravo Network’s “The Real Housewives of Orange County” filmed there, and the ABC show, “The Lookout” sent undercover visitors there who discovered the accommodations and staff were among the best in the region.  We’re so in love with the place that we’ve assembled over a dozen luxury vacation units there.  With this many condos available, we’re ready to book a getaway for a group that ranges anywhere from just a romantic getaway for the two of you, to a retreat for your work, school, or church group of several dozen.

Shortly after you arrive, you’ll begin to share our enthusiasm for the place.  The ocean is literally just a few steps away, so you can have sand between your toes almost immediately upon your arrival.  And the resort has beautiful pools with swim-up bars just like you’d expect of a top notch resort.  The on-site dining is a destination for discriminating diners from the entire region.  You can enjoy fine Kobe beef dishes and fresh local seafood without having to step off the property.

As much as you’ll enjoy your time soaking in the luxury of Villa la Estancia, we do recommend you set aside some time to sample some of the local color as well.  Nearby Puerto Vallarta has lots of fun dining and shopping available.  You can pick up some amazing values on art objects created by local artisans in the colorful shops that line the streets.  And some of the finest lobster in all the land can be found in small family-run restaurants scattered around the town.

Isn’t It Time You Fled the Country?

We’re not actually looking for fugitives from justice.  But we do welcome with open arms fugitives from stress and the daily grind.  You’ve probably noticed the symptoms as well.  You’re getting increasingly impatient with long meetings.  The mere mention of a conference call sends your eyes rolling back into your head.  And every new mention of a deadline has you glancing at the clock seeking escape at the end of the day.  This is no way to live, and you really need to get some relaxing time away.  Fortunately, we just happen to be world-class experts on creating relaxing escapes away from the pressures of your day.  And this week, we’re going to recommend that you not only get away, but you should flee the country entirely.

Of course we’re talking about spending some quality time in one of our resort condominiums in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.  We’ve got over a dozen luxury units just steps away from the beach at Villa la Estancia.  The resort is a short cab ride from the airport, and there are several flights daily out of LAX.  Other southland airports offer connecting flights that will still get you there quickly.  You can head to the airport at noon, and you’ll be enjoying shrimp and margaritas on the beach by dinner.  It’ll feel like somebody reached around to the back of your head, and opened up your relief valve.  You’ll just sink into the beach chair as all the tension and pressures melt away.

Many of our luxury units overlook the surf, and you’ll find yourself gravitating toward the balcony time after time during your stay.  Each of our units is fully furnished with your comfort in mind, but nothing can quite compete with the view of the ocean you’ll have when you choose one of our view condos.

Villa la Estancia is consistently rated among the top resorts in the Nuevo Vallarta area, and with good reason.  There are two award-winning restaurants on site that cater to even the most discriminating tastes.  Take the short cab ride into Puerto Vallarta, and you’ll enjoy full days of great shopping and amazing food stands.  Seasoned travelers always bring along an empty suitcase to fill with the unique craft and accent items that are virtually irresistible in the markets.  And when those items eventually find their way onto your shelves and desks back home, they’ll be a constant reminder of the amazing time you had when you grabbed the family and fled the country — for an amazing getaway to Villa la Estancia in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.

More Rave Reviews About Villa la Estancia on ABC’s “The Lookout”

There’s been a lot of good attention paid recently to our Villa la Estancia resort in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.  Our blog a couple weeks ago noted that Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Orange County” spent a fun getaway there and featured their visit on this season’s episode 10 and episode 11.  We’re thrilled at all the great press, and excited to see more guests making plans for a memorable getaway to this amazing beach front resort.

We’ve been convinced of the value of Villa la Estancia since we first visited there nearly a decade ago looking for a new destination for our guests.  The resort was growing and getting some of the overflow traffic from Puerto Vallarta just a few miles to the south.  There are a number of things that convinced us to stake our claim here.  We started with just one penthouse unit while the property was still under construction.

Fast forward several years.  We now offer 16 luxury units, so you can imagine how excited we were when we saw Villa la Estancia featured on ABC’s program,”The Lookout.”  The episode was filmed with an undercover crew, and they took a close look at several resorts along the coast starting in Puerto Vallarta and moving up to Villa la Estancia in Nuevo Vallarta. You can watch the entire episode at this link.  Villa la Estancia ends up as the star of the episode.  The undercover team was met with several disappointments along they way, but Villa la Estancia’s introduction included something akin to a heavenly choir.  We know exactly how they feel.

Villa la Estancia’s construction quality is unrivaled.  We’re accustomed to seeing great amenities and first class luxury in our resort properties, but Villa la Estancia really pulls out all the stops.  Top quality granite counters and upgraded appliances are just the start.  The furnishings are top notch as well.  But as much as we love the luxury of this world-class resort, the real value for most of our guests is found in the surroundings.

The beach is simply amazing.  The clean white sand stretches as far as you can see, and there’s really no place in the resort that’s more than a minute or two walk from the surf.   We’re also seeing an increasing number of golfers staying at the resort because there are several world-class courses located nearby in Puerto Nuevo and Puerto Vallarta.  We devoted a recent blog to our golfing destinations, and you can view that post at this link.  Lovers of unique shopping and great seafood will love spending time in Puerto Vallarta with its fun shops and fresh lobster.

And if you’re really just in the mood for pure relaxation, there’s no better place than Villa la Estancia.  The on-site spa will have you feeling like a star.  And you can enjoy world-class dining in the resort’s restaurants as well.  Use this link to view all our Villa la Estancia luxury vacation rentals.  We also offer an all-inclusive option that will keep you well-fed throughout your stay.  We have details about the all-inclusive option at this page.

“Real Housewives of Orange County” Filming at Villa la Estancia in Puerto Vallarta

Movie stars have historically sought out the most luxurious vacation destinations.  It’s part of the allure of stardom, and why so many of us are fascinated with their lives.  Anybody can book a comfy vacation at a chain hotel, but where do the really rich and famous people stay?  Well, sometimes, they stay with us.

Richard Burton and Liz Taylor on the set in Puerto Vallarta

Hollywood has a long term love affair with Mexico, and the area surrounding Puerto Vallarta has seen dozens of big-name stars land here to enjoy the amazing beaches and luxurious accommodations. The classic film, “Night of The Iguana” was filmed here in 1962. For 72 days the cast and crew inhabited the sleepy fishing town while the movie was in production.  It was during this time that the film’s star, Richard Burton carried on his scandalous affair with Elizabeth Taylor.

The film went on to be a huge success, and is credited with helping to establish Puerto Vallarta as a resort destination.  The grateful town erected a bronze statue of the film’s director, John Huston, which remains today.

Now there’s a new generation of reality TV stars, and like their predecessors, they also seek out the finest destinations for fun and vacations.  And Puerto Vallarta continues to be a popular destination.

Fans of the Bravo show, “Real Housewives of Orange County” recently had a front row seat to the luxury of our resort rentals in Villa la Estancia.  The girls decided to jet down for a rowdy bachelorette party, and they stayed at the resort.  We certainly agree with their decision, and were delighted to see the numerous scenes that showed the resort’s rooms and pools.

The suites at Villa la Estancia are amazing.  The resort sits right on the beach and it’s nearly impossible to find a place in the resort where you can’t enjoy a breathtaking view of the surf.  There are two on-site restaurants, and La Casona  is the only restaurant in Nuevo Vallarta to feature Kobe and Angus Certified beef.

The Real Housewives arrive at Villa la Estancia

With two swim-up bars and shaded terrace seating, this casual poolside spot features ceviche, Mexican favorites like fish tacos, gourmet burgers, sandwiches and salads. There is a full service spa on site. The spa is a 17,000 sq ft facility which features 14 indoor treatment suites, two exclusive VIP treatment suites with private Jacuzzi and shower, a spa retail shop, a full-service beauty salon and a fitness studio.

While the girls on “Real Housewives of Orange County” were too busy to enjoy all the wonderful amenities found at Villa la Estancia, we recommend that you dive in.  Pull up a chair in the evening and enjoy the show as the sun slowly sinks into the swells of the ocean that is just steps away from the resort.  The cool breezes will only enhance the great relaxation that you and your family will feel here.

Looking For a Warm Christmas? Five Star Vacation Rentals Has the Answer

Lots of folks who live in Southern California have landed here from other parts of the country where the weather is not quite as nice as ours.  Well, now that we think about it, NO place really has weather nearly as nice as ours, right?  These transplanted Californians delight in some things that are completely foreign to us natives.  For example, never once has your faithful blogger delighted in NOT having to shovel snow.  In fact, he has never even held a snow shovel.  But if you were born and raised in Minnesota, that simple statement would set your head spinning with a great big smile on your face.  Southern California is sort of like the Emerald City to these folks. It’s a dream land where nobody really needs a heavy coat, black ice is something you get when you pour Coke into the ice tray, and the sun actually seems to shine brightly almost every day of the year.  Yes, Toto, you really aren’t in, err, Minnesota any more.

Not our idea of fun.  Is it yours?
Not our idea of fun. Is it yours?

Many of these folks become then envy of their less-fortunate relatives still trapped in the arctic climates from which they fled.  And the contrast in the weather is never so dramatic as when the holidays arrive.  Your weekly phone conversation with Uncle Julius in Minneapolis invariably covers exactly how long it took him to shovel out the  driveway so he could find the car.  And if he’s really lucky, he’ll tell about the wonderful new snowblower he just bought.  You can smile and tell him about the wonderful new lawnmower you just bought.  It’s quickly apparent that the two of you — though once neighbors — now reside on entirely different planets.

But the holidays are a time for gathering with friends and family from all the far flung areas they’ve landed.  And it would be a crime NOT to offer a brief respite to those you love by hosting your own holiday get-together at one of our luxurious Southern California or Mexico vacation rentals.   You’ll certainly be more popular with the snow-bound relatives, and you may decide to become a Realtor so you can profit from the relocation that many of them will begin planning as soon as they return home and their feet hit the hard, frozen soil.  Be sure to tell them you can get them seats at the Rose Parade, and they won’t need a parka for it either.

We have some great choices for a warm-weather winter getaway.  All of our vacation rental units are luxuriously furnished and promise to provide an amazing setting for your family and friends to enjoy the holidays together.

Our Southern California beach homes are located within walking distance of the beach and offer an amazing level of luxury.  The beach homes are also ideally located to serve as a home base for visiting all of Southern California’s favorite attractions from Sea World, just a couple hours to the south, and Hollywood studios an hour or so to the north.  Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm are even closer.  Click here for a closer look at our Southern California beach homes.

This is your view from the balcony at Villa La Estancia. Notice that there's not a snow shovel in sight.

If you have a very large group, our best accommodations may be with our Villa La Estancia Mexican resort vacation rentals located right on the beach in Puerto Nuevo.  We have 16 units available in the resort, so we can accomodate a group of virtually any size.  The resort is located just a few minute’s drive from the  Puerto Vallarta Airport, and all southern California airports offer direct flights.  Trust us, Aunt Mildred from Detroit will rewrite her will to include you after she spends an hour in the on-site spa at Villa La Estancia.  In addition to the ocean swimming and boating, all the golfers in your group will enjoy the championship golf courses nearby as well.  Good luck getting them all back on the plane to Minnesota after that!  Click here to view our Villa La Estancia vacation rentals.

Our Palm Springs/La Quinta vacation rentals are a special delight during the holidays.  Palm Springs pulls out all the stops at Christmas time, and the entire family will delight in great shopping, shows, and amazing restaurants.  Our vacation rentals are right on the golf course, so you can have everybody back east dust off their clubs and enjoy a few rounds while their neighbors back home will be lifting nothing but their snow shovels.  It makes for a perfectly delightful time.  You can look at our Palm Springs/La Quinta properties on this page.

Give us a call today at 310-780-3411, and we’ll help you plan your ideal family vacation.  Your vacation time is very special, so don’t gamble with it.  Our goal is to offer you a level of luxury that you just won’t find anywhere else.
