Villa Paita [Pie-eat-ah] is among the most spectacular view homes for rent on the Mexican Riviera. Villa Paita comfortably sleeps 6 adults in 2 full Bedrooms and 2nd story Master Suite. Full membership benefits to the exclusive Celeste Beach & Spa resort, just a short walk from the Villa, is included for our guests. Additionally, we offer free use of a 2002 Classic Volkswagen Beetle.
The Villa is situated on a high bluff with a majestic 180° ocean view that provides the ultimate getaway experience for travellers wanting to take in the beauty of Huatulco's coast and all that nature has to offer. Tastefully decorated with native artwork and materials, Paita is far more private & enjoyable than any hotel or condo.
Please see the following independent tripadvisor review, prior to the completion of Villa Paita's 2nd story master suite, from one of our happy and satisfied guests:
From it's open air living ... and its partially palapa-protected lap pool ... to its 180-degree view of Tangolunda & Conejos bays (complete with cliffs & crashing waves below and the Sierra Madres to your back) ... the fabulous Villa Paita played perfect host to our Huatulco escape this year.
Location: high on a cliff-top point between two (of nine) picture-perfect bays. In private residential Conejos at the end of a quiet and notably unpopulated cul-de-sac. Unimproved lots are currently the villa's neighbors. 10ish minutes drive to La Crucecita -- allowing time to joke with the security guys at the community's entrance gate.
Flora & Fauna: Beautifully landscraped grounds (a million shades of green in September) with flowers, banana plants and brilliant ornamentals which provide you complete and colorful privacy.
Lizards, geckos, frogs, lightening bugs, peligans, gulls, frigates, hummingbirds, green parrot-y-kinda-guys and festive chukalakas welcome you.
The Villa: maybe best described as Thoughtfully Upscale Rustic Chic.
"Upscale" in that you'll enjoy 3 televisions (2 flat screens); a fantastic satellite radio-type system pumped throughout the villa ... and soon the nearly completed Master Suite palapa will enjoy a 360-degree panoramic view of the breath-taking land- (and water-) scapes. You can also enjoy hardy air conditioning at bedtime if the nights grow heavy.
"Rustic" as there will be no glass in the windows as you dine -- you'll simply enjoy your meals al fresco. (The organic materials used to create the villa's roof and the gorgeous palapa over your cliffside hammock make for a naturally kicked-back for the week.) Singing amphibians will lull you to sleep.
"Chic" - check out the wood carvings, dramatically-lit boulders and leopard skin wall hangings. The vibe is pure "Beautiful Private Fun".
... and finally "Thoughtful" ... which is synonymous with your gracious host Marco.
Marco will check in with you daily to ensure that your every need is met -- and is always available by phone. In our case, Marco was kind enough to pick us up at the airport AND offer up his Road-Dominating 2002 VW Beetle for the week. :) Besides all that, he's just an adorably funny dude. )
... and as for the delightful chefs that are available upon request ... be sure to ask for the famous Mix Grill for at least one of your dinners.
At any rate, pls message me if you'd like to learn more. I can't promise to be unbaised, but I can promise continuing favorable blather with complete honesty. :D

On our last journey to Villa Paita, the anticipation of walking through the door and seeing the view was the only thing on our minds. The view is simply stunning. For those of us that do not live near an ocean, it is surreal. Even after a week of seeing the view day in and day out, the expansive, unobstructed view of the Pacific takes my breath away.
The house perfectly fits the environment and is very comfortable. Marco is a wonderful host and will help you with any request. The house and setting are so comfortable, it is difficult to be motiviated to leave the property to explore the area. But, when you do, there are many places to see and activities to do. Access to Celeste was wonderful. We utilized both the gym and enjoyed cocktails in the upstairs lounge. We also arranged for Eco Spa to come to the house for a massage. Very relaxing.
Marco also helped us arrange both a fishing trip and a bay tour. The boat and crew were perfect for both trips. The bay tour is a fantastic way to experience the area as you can stop at different bays for snorkeling, hanging out on the beach as well as enjoying lunch at one of the beach restaurants.
Overall, we are hooked on Villa Paita. This is our place to relax, detach from everyday life, and be reacquainted with nature. A great way to reenergize and we highly recommend it.
“Accommodations that will finally exceed your expectations”

I have only one word to describe Villa Paita, and that word is... Wow ! My family and I never enjoyed a Mexican vacation as much as we did in Huatulco, and it was, first and foremost, because of our accommodations at Villa Paita. Of course much of that enjoyment was due to the extraordinary hospitality of the owner/builder/manager of the Villa, Mr. Gordon. His attention to detail in the construction and operation of the Villa is unbelievable. He even offers a VW Beetle with your reservation if you want it.
For starters, the Villa Paita Website is spectacular. But we all know Websites usually misrepresent the actual property. Well, not this time. The actual property is breathtaking, and totally exceeded our expectations. You can definitely trust what you see online.The Villa's location is cliff-side, three hundred feet above the surging Pacific in a secure, gated community. Our safety while in Huatulco was never an issue.
When you drive up to the Villa you have no idea what is just ahead. When you open the front door you see a lap pool extending into the living room, and straight ahead is the backyard and the most incredible view of the ocean and Huatulco's largest bay. You expect to see an enclosed room with windows and doors, but no. No wall, no windows, no doors; just a wide open view. The Villa is expertly appointed and the second level master suite is, in a word, sweet.
This will not be our last trip to Villa Paita. We were completely satisfied with our vacation decision. No complaints.

We visited Villa Paita in March of 2012 with another couple. What a fabulous home. So unexpected! The fresh air open living area was incredible. Marco was very attentive and really focused on all of the details of our trip. The views are incredible and the property is very spacious. While at the house we enjoyed entertaining in the living area and yard. Swam in the awesome pool, relaxed with a book in the hammock, and took lots and lots of pictures!
We drove all over the place in the VW bug that comes with the property. What fun we had! Marco can hook you up with great adventures too. We spent a day with his friend, who took us on his boat from one snorkeling area to another and from secluded beach to secluded beach! We were the only four people on the beach or snorkeling in most places.
If you want a fabulous vacation away from the resort, but in a vacation home with so much to offer, this is your place! Marco will take excellent care of you!

The serenity and beauty here at Villa Paita is almost unimaginable and hardly describable. The views, the sea breeze, the melodic ocean waves lapping at the rocks below take you to a tranquil paradise that is solely yours. The house itself is quaint and more than adequate. Everything you would need is at your disposal. The finishes and decor reflect the beautiful culture, and the amenities (TV, sound system, baths) are ultra modern in comparison.
The private yard is large and beautifully landscaped. For hours we lay outside sunbathing hearing nothing but the ocean below, the same crashing waves that then lull you to sleep at night. We spent most of our days swimming endlessly in the private pool or laying in the cliff side hammock enjoying the sea breeze and the amazing view of the pacific that begins where the yard ends and goes on endlessly as you turn your head from shoulder to shoulder.
When we needed entertainment we would venture to town in the VW. It was great having a car at our disposal. The VW was fun to drive and takes you back to those days when we were young and life was good. Villa Paita is barely a ten minute drive from downtown Huatulco and in a gated community that has 24 hr security. This made us feel safe and looked after ;-)
When we had any questions or needs, Marco was always at our disposal. He is a bevy of information when it comes to the local restaurants, activities, towns people and local happenings. He also made renting Villa Paita easy, competent and secure.
We loved our stay and will definitely be again!

My wife and I have visited Huatulco six times and stayed at Villa Paita the last four times and have reservations again for this Christmas week. While Residencial Conejos is not within walking distance to Santa Cruz or La Crucecita, it is a short taxi or VW bug (included with the villa) ride to either, and most of the beaches. Upon walking through the front door, you have one of the greatest vistas I have ever seen. The open-air palapa which looks out over the green lawn with the blue Pacific in the background. The villa is located on a cul-de-sac and truly feels like your own little sanctuary. The plunge pool, the views from atop the cliff, and the recently added upstairs bedroom could chill out even the most wound up person. The owner, Marco Gordon is also really helpful regarding new restaurant recs or just answering questions about the area. Can't wait till December.

Villa Paita is truly my paradise. My husband and I have been vacationing there annually for many years. For us, our trip there guarantees relaxation. Marco, the owner, lives in Huatulco and being from California, speaks English and Spanish perfectly. He is a wonderful host and should you need anything, he is always accommodating.
The view from the villa is unobstructed gorgeous ocean. There is a large lawn with very nice landscaping overlooking the Pacific. The distantly calming sound of the surf is heavenly and romantic. The living areas are mostly open air with the exception of the bedrooms and bathrooms. There is a lovely stereo system for music throughout the villa as well as satellite TV and Wi Fi. The bedrooms are air conditioned and the beds (although I have not slept in all of them)are comfortable.
The pool, which is nicely sized for laps or a cool dip, is partially shaded and surrounded by beautiful palms and local plants. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals and there is a barbeque grill out on the point. The upstairs bedroom has windows on two sides which open out the gorgeous view. It is equipped with a bar area, mini fridge and flat screen TV. The upstairs bathroom has a roomy shower and modern décor.
The villa is located in a high-end gated community which is home to many large, beautiful residences.
Villa Paita is our perfect place to decompress. We go into town daily to shop, enjoy a meal out and stroll through La Crucetia, the downtown square. There is a nice golf course in town and exploring areas like Santa Cruz, Chahue, Playa Entegra are also fun. Marco will tell you all the best dining spots and can suggest things to do for many different interests.
We welcome a break from our fast-paced lives and Villa Paita offers the solace and comfort we adore. I recommend the villa for a romantic, relaxing getaway.
