Villa Karaway (VK) is the ultimate Puerto Vallarta Beach Villa! A rare find on the powdery sands of Puerto Vallarta. The home is RIGHT on the beach. Please read the entire description, but first some ideas to save money and select the proper home.
When shopping for a home for your hard earned vacation in PV, make sure the ask the following:
1. Is the home right on the beach, or do you have to walk to the beach?
2. Is there SAND on the beach? Except for downtown and north of town, sandy beaches are rare. We have sand on our beach!
3. Are there any additional charges? VK rates are all inclusive, you just pay for the food and drinks that our chief prepares, along with tips.
4. Exactly where are you located in PV? No hype from us. You are 6 km south of town (about 12 minutes away), so you have the town amenities, without the hustle an bustle. We are right on the bus route (50 cents to town), or cabs are usually parked by the complex ($6 into town).
With over 4000 square feet of pure luxury, this four bedroom, five bath vacation rental is ideal for corporate meetings, family reunions, or just an intimate get-away. Many rooms have 12-foot high ceilings - just right for bringing in the incredible views of the Bay and Mountain Ranges around Puerto Vallarta.
See the end of this description for other guest comments, but this comment from a NYC guest sums it up - 'Absolute Paradise!' Make sure the visit our web site for even more pictures and information ((website: hidden)).
This villa is right on the beach. The beach is beautiful with a protective rock reef creating a wonderful family swimming area and an incredible sandy beach. Let the professional staff of a full-time maid and gourmet cook pamper you. It is your vacation - so enjoy it!
You enter your two-story vacation home (named 'Villa Karaway') from a private iron gate into a masterfully constructed tiled hallway. To the right, past the sitting area, is the lower bedroom with two single beds, which can be make into a king bed (all bedrooms have air conditioning), a walk-in closet, and private bath. Close by is the washer and dryer. To the left of the hallway is the open-air patio with splendid plants.
Up five tile-covered steps is another hallway. Turn left and you enter the gourmet kitchen, bar, walk-in pantry, table for four, and bathroom. Proceeding past the kitchen is the dining room with seating for eight. Past the dining room is the living room with floor-to-ceiling glass sliding walls to another outdoor patio with lighted palms, the downstairs porch, and the private infinity pool. Just past your pool is the wondrous Los Palmares Beach.
Proceed the other way down the entrance-way hallway and you arrive at bedroom two. This is a bedroom with one queen and one king bed, a large walk-in closet, and an even larger bathroom. There is a large window that opens to the interior patio.
Up the stairs further is bedroom three with two double beds, 12-foot high ceiling, a large window opening to the interior patio, TV and VCR, and private bath.
Further down the hallway is the ultimate, master bedroom with a king-size bed. Floor-to-ceiling movable windows separate the bedroom to the upstairs patio. There is also a large window providing a view to the famous Los Arcos islands just off the shore of Puerto Vallarta. The master also contains a sitting area, large walk-in closet, and a bath that is also a jetted tub, steam, and a ten-side spigot shower.
You will NOT be DISAPPOINTED with Karaway or the Los Palmares facilities! Villa Karaway is part of the classy Los Palmares condominium complex. Everything is in tip top condition, including the large infinity pool, jacuzzi, kid's pool, and exercise room. There is also 24-hour security. It is located just under six kilometers to the south of downtown Puerto Vallarta and is on the city bus route for easy transportation.
Guest book comments (we would put in more, but have a space limitation):
'What a breathtaking house surrounded by such a magnificent setting. I now have a concrete vision of what heaven might really look like when I close my eyes. I honestly don't think that it is possible to describe with mere words. From the lush, green hillside to the sun setting into the ocean...from Adela's unbelievable Mexican feast to the kind smiles and welcoming faces of everyone we encountered...It is truly a memory that we will carry with us forever.
'What a marvelous place to come and visit. We just don't want to go home. God's seam between land and water, and right in the middle is your beautiful casa.' -Guests, Denver, CO
'WOW!' - Austin TX
'If you don't love this - give up! You won't be happy in heaven!' - Chicago, IL

We had a fine stay! The residence was top notch and the care provided was wonderful. It's out of the way - far enough from the city that you need to take a bus or cab - and quiet, with some rolling sandy beach dropping into the rock-protected swimming harbor. Gloria and Elba took wonderful care of us the whole time. The food and the setting were excellent. If you're looking for a quiet place out of the way with perfect amenities, this is it!

Villa Karaway is amazing! Everything from the first class amenities to the beautiful sunsets made our time in Puerto Vallarta so much more than we could have imagined. This beautiful home, just minutes by taxi from the hustle and bustle of the city, allowed us to enjoy quiet relaxing times poolside or the direct beach access made playing in the ocean or walks on the beach a snap as well. I loved how knowledgable and helpful the staff is in arranging for any activity we could imagine. We went on a charter whale watching excursion with a local fisherman all arranged by Elba (the chef). He was kind and professional, spoke English, charged a reasonable fee, picked us up at "our door" but best of all, he knew how to find the Whales and we were able to have the experience of a lifetime! Thank you for making Villa Karaway so special and such an affordable piece of paradise! I'll be back, with friends! Please tell Elba her delicious meals were one of the highlights and added so much value to our vacation.

My family and I -- total of 14-18 +/- from time to time have stayed at KH 10 times are more. It is our favorite vacation spot. Lots of safe things for the entire family to do. Not a far taxi ride from town, close enough to town when one wants to be there, but far enough away from town to have peace. Elba is our cook, and an excellent cook she is. Gloria takes care of the room and public places on a daily basis and does an excellent job. Ernesto is available on the rare occasions when the local manager is necessary. Final note ... love the horizon pool right outside the patio!
