Plan Your Winter Getaway on The Beach

Southern California has some of the best weather found anywhere in the world. But as winter approaches, we do see the temperatures drop enough that the beaches are pretty empty. If you’re missing your beach time, your family may want to think about planning an exotic adventure for the new year where the weather is warmer and you can swim in the ocean. Sound interesting? Check out the luxury getaway we can put together for you in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.

Region capture 12The weather in Puerto Nuevo is remarkably warm this time of year. Most days the high is in the 80’s and the lows are in the 60’s. And the ocean water can be a cozy range from the high 70’s to low 80’s. It’s great beach conditions, and a great chance to enjoy the feel of sand between your toes while enjoying some amazing luxury in one of our Five Star Vacation Rental beachside condos.

We have over a dozen luxury units in Villa la Estancia, and you’ll quickly see why these are so popular. The resort has all the amazing amenities you’d expect and more. There are award-winning onsite restaurants, a full spa, pools, and every unit is just moments from the surf.

GolfVacationThe golfers in your party will want to pack their clubs for the quick flight out of Southern California to enjoy the championship golf courses nearby. And Puerto Vallarta is a quick cab ride away with amazing local cuisine, shops with artwork from local artists, and some great historical sites as well.

But you’ll keep finding yourself drawn back to your luxury suite. Choose one with ocean views, and you can start each day with breakfast on the balcony overlooking the waves that await. In addition to great on-site dining, each of our units has a full kitchen, so you can try your hand at some of the great foods and fish you’ll find available in the Puerto Vallarta marketplace.

It’s exotic, it’s relaxing, and it’s a great way to plan a winter vacation that will have you feeling you’re in the middle of summer.

“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.
