About the property

4 Bed, 5 Bath Villa w/ Spectacular Panoramic Ocean Views

Villa Amapas offers a privileged view location on the Amapas hillside. Overlooking Vallarta, the pier, Los Muertos beach and the Cathedral. The Villa has over 7000 square feet of private living in a striking architectural environment decorated with the best from Mexican culture. Each bedroom is en-suite and has its own separate balcony for privacy and comfort. There is a very large walled deck area surrounding an equally large, heated infinity-pool offering some of the best views in all of Vallarta. The villa has a full time housekeeper and house-man/pool-man. Fresh breakfasts prepared daily with the option of having your own Private Chef on request. Light laundry available with staff assistance for $10 per load. The villa is conveniently located above Los Muertos beach (south end of the city of Puerto Vallarta) for going to town but high enough on the Amapas hill to allow you to enjoy the serenity of the surroundings. You will not be disappointed.

About Julian

Family home in Mexico taken care of by the warm, friendly house manager and staff- all of whom are very familiar with the property and surrounding areas.

Julian purchased this villa in 2014

Why Julian chose Amapas

The American architect, Andy Sumners, who has built beautiful homes in PV, captured the spirit of Puerto Vallarta, took advantage of the fantastic vista, and created a totally comforting space.

What makes this villa unique

The fabulous views offer an constantly changing panorama from the tranquility of the sun rising over the ridges of the Sierra Madre Mountains to the activity of the beaches and on the water through-out the day to the truly unbelievable sunsets to the gorgeous lights of town at night. You will be entertained all through-out the day!

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our group recently stayed at the house in March 2017. We were very impressed not only with the property but with the staff as well. The house, grounds and view are gorgeous. The staff (Cecy, Diego and Lettie) are amazing, kind and do their jobs very well. The food and drinks were delicious - honestly the food we got there was better than anything we got in any restaurant we visited. We only left the property for short excursions and evenings. Other than that, we were perfectly content staying at the house. In terms of stuff to watch out for (I'm not ticking off any stars - these are just things they could improve on). The communication prior to our stay was sub-par. After I made payment, I didn't hear from the Concierge until 12 days prior to our departure. That may be enough time for most, but our group had 6 people. We wanted to plan the details of our stay (a few of us had food restrictions/allergies), our excursions and dinner reservations but also wanted to know basic information (like the address, check in time, how to get there, would there be transportation from the airport). I emailed quite a few times and even called the number listed with no response. I think that worry and frustration was unnecessary. Once we did finally make contact with the Concierge, we were able to plan the vacation quite smoothly with lots of back and forth. Also, be sure to stock the kitchen with whatever you want right at the beginning of the trip. If you request another stocking (even if it's for just 1 basic item - like more bottled water), they will charge a grocery fee of $30. We ended up getting charged $30 for every day we were there.

Owner's Response: Hi Jilu We are gratified to hear that you truly enjoyed your stay a Villa Amapas and that the staff did such a great job. We will be sure to let them know! Good feedback on the notification timing from our Concierge. We will make sure that we initiate the contact earlier with our guests. The shopping expeditions are designed so that our guests get the very freshest of ingredients at all times which unfortunately often means a daily trip to the market when our guests are having all their meals in the Villa. At the same time, we will try to see how we can minimize these trips in the future through better meal management. Warm Regards!

Villa Lucia and staff were outstanding!! We could not have been more happy. Cecy's food was amazing. We loved her!! Diego was outstanding and was always there for us. Lotty had our house in tip top shape. My room was always perfect. I would recommend to anyone.

Thanks, Laurie Wenker

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My group of 8 recently spent my 40th birthday at Villa Lucia. This property is stunning! The indoor-outdoor common living spaces are huge yet comfortable. The bedrooms are perfect suites with comfortable beds and relaxing sun porches.

Diego made us delicious margaritas whenever we wished and Cecilia cooked up amazing meals.

The walk down to the beach is a bit steep but there is a stairwell about 1/4 of the way down that makes getting to the beach much easier.

I absolutely loved this property and hope to stay again very soon.

Thanks for the amazing time.

One Blissful Week!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8, including our 3 adult children and their spouses and significant others, spent the week of October 8th at Villa Lucia to celebrate a significant birthday and anniversary. From the start, the experience simply exceeded our expectations. We arrived in the afternoon to be warmly greeted by Leo, our Chef; Diego, his assistant and maintenance supervisor; and Letty, the housekeeper, with a tray of delicious and freshly prepared margaritas, guacamole, salsa and chips. The open-air villa itself was even more spacious and beautiful than the photos had revealed, with absolutely breathtaking views of Puerto Vallarta from every room. The size of the bedrooms, all with their own bathrooms and balconies, gave us more than enough room to spread out...the need for privacy was never an issue! The heated infinity pool was a huge attraction, and the place that we gathered as a family each day to celebrate having this special time together. Our concierge, Patty, made arrangements for us to experience some great day trips, including one to Sayulita to satisfy the surfers and paddle boarders in our group, and another, a 3 hour boat cruise to Los Arcos and Mismaloya at sunset...Gorgeous! Patty was also very helpful in arranging rides whenever anyone in our group wanted to explore the city or to go out to dinner in the Romantic Zone, although our most memorable meals were the ones prepared by our chef, Leo, in the villa. Our breakfasts were extraordinary, and the dinners he made for us were beautifully prepared, presented, and by far the most outstanding dining of the week! Diego was always there to provide wonderful service in such a kind and considerate manner, and Letty was lovely and kept the villa absolutely immaculate. By the time we had to leave at the end of the week, we left reluctantly and sadly, hating to say goodbye to this gorgeous place, a wonderful vacation and a staff that we came to love! Will we return? Undoubtedly! Thank you, Patty, Leo, Diego and made our visit to Villa Lucia most memorable!

Exceeded any and all expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Villa Lucia was unbelievable, we were sad to say good-bye! The view of Puerto Vallarta and the ocean were spectacular! Leo, the house chef prepared 5 star meals for breakfast and dinner, there was never any food left on the plate! Diego knew our drinks were getting low before we did and was right there with refills! My sister's 40th birthday will never be forgotten, thank you for making our trip the most memorable yet! We will definitely be coming again!
