Puerto Vallarta lies along Banderas Bay, the second largest bay in the Western Hemisphere. It is located 352 kilometers (219 miles) from Guadalajara, the state capital of Jalisco, and it is nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Madre mountain range. The region has many forests, rivers and waterfalls, with an average temperature of 27C (80F).
Of its many attractions, Playa Mismaloya which gained fame from the film "The Night of the Iguana" is a popular celebrity hangout. The impressive rock formations of Los Arcos emerge from the bay's crystalline waters, which are great for diving and discovering incredible underwater mountains and steeps. The city hall has murals painted by Manuel Lepe, and the Malecon (sea wall) is adorned with romantic bronze sculptures. Downtown streets offer shops and galleries that sell local paintings and sculptures. The city, known for its top-notch services, also has golf courses, boutiques and a marina.
In Puerto Vallarta you can enjoy the exquisite regional cuisine of Jalisco and the terraces of open-air restaurants, where you can watch cruise ships roll in as you take in an incredible sunset.
Sport fishing is just one of many activities you can do during your stay in Puerto Vallarta. Each year, during the month of November, the International Sailfish Fishing Tournament takes place. Other activities available in this region are eco-tourism, extreme sports, snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, boating, golfing and nightlife.
Additional amenities include: beach towels, in-home theater, concierge, security system, private chef, houseman, free long distance calls, whirl pool spa, elevator, alfresco dining....Read more

From the time me and my friends arrived, we were in pure bliss. The staff was great and they were more than attentive. The place was impeccable and looked exactly like the pictures. On our first day, we were greeted with friendly smiles and drinks..and both lasted the full 6 days we were there. The food was great and ESPECIALLY the guacamole!!! :-) I would absolutely stay here again without any questions. I felt like the staff was family by the time we left! I miss them! I would recommend 1000% that people should stay here. I want to hop on a plane and go right back for another week! LOL

One of the most beautiful places I've ever stayed at. This house exceeded my expectations. Each bedroom had it's own personal touch and was equipped with a private bathroom. I spent most of my time in the Infinity Pool enjoying view overlooking the Bay and City of Puerto Vallarta. I must admit the highlight of this trip was the staff. We were treated like royalty! The staff was very welcoming, attentive, accommodating, friendly and pleasant; no task or ask was too big for them. My only complaint is that I couldn't stay longer :-)

Does not matter if I’m talking about the house, the views or the staff, the only word to describe it is AMAZING.
I do an annual group trips with anywhere from 8 people to 40 people. Each trip has been unique for one reason or another. This trip was unique because it was my 36th birthday. It is unfortunate this is that 36 is not a milestone birthday because this place is deserving of only milestone events.
I traveled with 25 other people who are all extremely sad to be back home and at work. The staff at Casa Yvonneka treated us like family. They attended to our every need before we even knew there was a need. Leaving them was probably one of the saddest/hardest part of the trip. They took care of us in ways they didn’t have to. Their customer service and attention to detail was simply unimaginable.
Since my 40th is so far away, I have to create a milestone event just so I can go back to Casa Yvonneka.

Superb. Marvelous. Breathtaking. These three words completely describe the level of service, the splendid accommodations and the most amazing views of the ocean, beach and cascading mountain range. I was beyond thrilled at the style and decor of the rooms - which were all spacious and well-designed and decorated. The infinity pool with the view of the skyline is worth the stay alone. I could not recommend a better location, and look forward to my next stay in Puerto Vallarta!

This is my second vacation to Mexico with a large group. We previously stayed in a house of similar size, but this house was by far my favorite. The pool was relaxing with an awesome view of the beach and city; the space was well equipped for multiple small group spaces including a game room with karaoke, living room with TV, and separate lounge areas; the dining area was ideal for the full group of 26; and the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable.
What made this trip a real vacation was the incredible staff! They spoiled us, fed us, kept us safe, kept the house clean, and kept us intoxicated with some delicious mango margaritas and strawberry daiquiris. I ate all the time and I'm sure if it wasn't for my morning exercises, I would have gained 10 pounds.
Thank you to everyone at Casa Yvonneka! You made this trip one of my most memorable!

First and foremost I do alot of group trips quite often. I must say, this vacation was the best group vacation I've ever taken! And I think the group will agree! The staff was sooo accomodating, the villa was AMAZING, the city was beautiful, the food was excellent, and I can't thank everyone enough for all of the effort involved in putting this together for myself and my family and friends. We will cherish the memories of this trip forever and I think some of us even shed a small tear at having to leave some of the new friends of the staff we left behind ;( Everytime we had a need they were there to help, but it wasn't overwhelming at all! Some how the staff managed to be there whenever you had a problem but you never felt overwhelmed or burdened by their presence at all! My mom offered for them to come to America to live with us (jokingly of course) lol. This place was A++++++!! - Toy M., New Jersey, USA

The villa was beautiful! Every room was designed to detail. The staff was awesome. We all fell in love with Magdelena, Felix, Fernando, and all the staff. The fed us well and catered to our every need, finding services of all kinds at great prices, including masseuses. All of our transporation needs were met and all drivers were on time and went above and beyond to satisfy our needs. The best part was the calls I got throughout our stay checking to ensure we were having a great time. we were positively stunned when we received a call from Yvonneka herself!!! If I simply had to register a complant it would be that the hot tub malfunctioned several times, but even then, the staff did all they could to repair it quickly. I also wonder how we would have fared had we not had someone in our group who spoke a little spanish. But I suppose having a spanish speaking staff was all a part of the adventure. We all had a wonderful time, and the trip exceeded all of our expectations. - Karen C., Maryland, USA

It has taken me this long to come back to reality after
spending a week at CasaYvonneka. Our week there was one to be remembered, the house was incredibly beautiful and the staff really made you feel welcome and treated you better than family. Magdalena, Fernando, Felix, Tony and the rest of the staff were magnificent, they were very good in anticipating all of our needs and always made sure we had an enjoyable time. We would very much like to come back to Casa Yvonneka in the near future and enjoy again the warm hospitality and excellent service we received there. Hope to come back soon. Alex and Franco.
Nos ha tomado todo este tiempo para escribirles esta nota. Nuestra semana que pasamos en Casa Yvonneka fue inolvidable ya que la casa era de ensueno y Magdalena, Fernando, Felix, Tony y el resto del personal nos hicieron sentir como en nuestra propia casa.
Durante todo el tiempo no hubo momento en que Magdalena y su equipo no estuviera al pendiente de nosotros, siempre asegurandose que pasaramos un dia y noche de encanto. El café de la manana, el ceviche, el guacamole y los platos esquisitos hicieron la estadia en Casa Yvonneka muy agradables. Esperamos regresar pronto a Casa Yvonneka ya que tenemos muy bonitos recuerdos de nuestro estadia ahi. Cordiales Saludos a todos! Sinceramente, Alex y Franco.

All 9 couples thoroughly enjoyed our 1 week at Casa Yvonneka. The property is designed well, beautifully decorated, has a very open layout to take advantage of the views, the best vistas in all of town, great location because of proximity to the beach & town, and a very accommodating staff.

This villa is truly luxury at its best. The home is beautifully designed with lots of attention to detail. We took full advantage of the use of the heated pool and jacuzzi daily, and the view is simply fantastic from this hill top residence. We loved the faxct that the villa was in walking distance to the night life, shops, restaurants, and beach. We were not ready to leave this fabulous home and I an grateful to Kirten(luxury retreats) for her excellent villa recommendation.

Overall, we were very happy with our stay at Casa Yvonneka. When we walked through the front doors and saw the view, I knew I had made the right choice. The villa was absolutely gorgeous and the staff very helpful and friendly. The chef prepared meal after fantastic meal. We did encounter a few problems, however. The hot tub wasn't always hot and we had an issue in which the room I stayed in ("La Romantica") got flooded due to some broken pipes. There was also a bad sewage smell in one of the top floor rooms. The water pressure in some of the showers was rather weak. Also, we were told there would be an on-site manager who spoke English. This was not the case. Luckily, one member of our group is fluent in Spanish. Other than these issues, the villa was everything we hoped it would be. In fact, it was so nice that we rarely ventured out!
