Find a Bit of Romance

Right around Valentine’s Day each year, we see a spike in bookings for all our destinations.  It’s the perfect time to set aside some time for you to rekindle the romance with your sweetheart.  But why wait until February?  We’ve got some great ideas right here in the middle of summer that are guaranteed to delight the two of you.

How about a stormy getaway to the beach Puerto Nuevo?  One of the most romantic memories from early in our marriage was during a stormy day.  We grabbed some takeout from our local rib joint, and by the time we got home the sky just opened up.  It was a deluge, but our little rented house had a covered patio out back.  We settled in at the small table under the patio for our feast, and we enjoyed a great meal as the sky raged and flashed with a summer thunderstorm.  That was many years ago, but it’s something we regularly remember.  We were enjoying some great food, the delight of each other’s company, and a turbulent stormy sky.  And this is something you may recreate right now on the beach at Villa la Estancia in Puerto Nuevo, Mexico.

The rains pick up this time of year at the beach in Puerto Nuevo, but it does nothing to detract from the beauty and luxury of this destination.  Each of our luxury condos is just steps away from the beach.  Summer storms are common, but each unit has a covered patio where you can relax and take in the beauty of the storm over the ocean.  It can be a vacation more about the time you spend together at this amazingly romantic destination.  There are two onsite restaurants, a huge spa, and no compelling reason to ever leave the property.  Settle in, spend some time relaxing together, and wait for a great summer storm to roll in.  Add a romantic meal on the patio, and we guarantee this will be a moment you’ll want to repeat over and over again.

You can find romance at any of our destinations.  Just call us at 310-800-5454 and we’ll be glad to help you plan a great summer vacation.  Browse our properties in Big BearMammothPark CityPalm Springs/La QuintaSouthern California Beaches, or Villa la Estancia in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.  Whether you’re planning a weekend getaway or a week-long vacation at the beach, we’ll be happy to help you find the perfect Five Star Vacation Rental.

Planning a Romantic Getaway to Villa la Estancia in Nuevo Vallarta

In the mood for a little bit of romance?  We can help you set the mood.  If your idea of a romantic getaway includes a beautiful condo on the beach away from the crowds with some rainy afternoons, Villa la Estancia in Nuevo Vallarta may well be your perfect choice.  Travel to Puerto Nuevo often slows a bit this time of year as the rainfall increases and the temperatures are a bit hotter.  But if you’re looking for more privacy and little less shopping in Puerto Vallarta, August and September may well be the perfect time to plan your getaway.  As further incentive, we’re currently offering a 30% discount on weekly rentals, and some flights may be discounted during this season as well.

One of the advantages to Villa la Estancia is the great amenities you will enjoy without ever leaving the property.  There are two onsite restaurants with exquisite menu options to meet virtually every taste.   There’s a 17,000 square-foot full-service spa that will pamper you to the point of guilt if you let them.  And if you choose one of our ocean-view condos, there’s really no need to go outside at all.  The restaurants offer room service, and you can both enjoy a massage right in the comfort of your suite.  Our idea of a perfect evening starts with a massage to get you both fully relaxed.  Then order from the extensive menu of one of the onsite restaurants.  When your meal arrives, set up out on the balcony, so you can enjoy the ocean view and crashing waves while you feast on some perfectly-prepared fresh seafood with the beverages of your choice.  Throw in the occasional afternoon rain shower, and the picture is complete.  You may never want to come home.

Once you arrive, you’ll quickly see why Villa la Estancia gets such rave reviews. You may check in as overworked denizens from Southern California, but you’ll check out feeling as though you’ve been treated like absolute royalty.  It’s little wonder that ABC’s new show, “The Lookout” featured Villa la Estancia as their favorite resort after an undercover report on vacation getaways in the area.  The property was also featured recently on “Real Housewives of Orange County. ”  Be sure to check out our recent blogs with more details at this link and this one.

Plan Your Perfect Valentine’s Day Getaway

Valentine’s Day is just a couple weeks away, and you’re in danger of missing a huge opportunity.  Sure, candy and flowers are nice, but isn’t it time to really show him or her a better demonstration of your affection?  Flowers quickly wilt, and candy will disappear, but a romantic getaway will be something they’ll remember for the rest of their lives.  And we’ve got some of the most romantic getaways imaginable.  Here are a couple ideas:

We’ve got great winter conditions in Big Bear right now, and whether you’re a skier or not, it’s a perfect time to get away.  Imagine cooking a romantic dinner for your honey and settling down in front of a crackling fire with a nice glass of wine as you enjoy a romantic evening in one of our luxury Big Bear cabins.  Many of our cabins also have toasty warm hot tubs that will be the perfect place to enjoy the crisp night air and watch as the stars put on their nightly show in the wide open skies above the treetops.  It’s a perfect recipe for romance, and we’re sure it’s one that both of you will remember with a knowing smile for many years to come.  Recharge your batteries, and rekindle the romance in your marriage with a weekend escape to Big Bear.

If you’ve got something more exotic in mind, we’ve got a perfect opportunity for that as well.  Our beach side resort units in Puerto Nuevo Mexico are just amazing.  There are daily flights from all southern California airports, and it’s a short cab ride from the airport to Villa la Estancia.

This world-class resort offers a level of luxury found in very few international destinations.  Enjoy a fine gourmet meal at the on site restaurant, La Casona.  This restaurant boasts some of the best reviews of the entire region, and you’ll enjoy an amazing fare of Kobe beef, or fresh local seafood.  February weather in Puerto Nuevo sees daily highs usually in the 80’s, so later you can take a slow walk on the beach.  You’ll delight in the sound of the surf as the pressures from back home seem a million miles away.  Take your relaxation to an even deeper level with the resort’s spa, and you’ll see why Villa la Estancia is a prime destination for people from all over the world.  Can you imagine anything more romantic?
