This 15,000 sq. ft. architectural masterpiece cascades down six beautiful levels of native vegetation, over dramatic cliffs and through colorful gardens overlooking the beach and cove where ‘The Night of the Iguana’ was filmed. The ‘Los Arcos’ National Park, boasts the best views in Banderas Bay and graces every vista in this majestic home. Beyond it, downtown Puerto Vallarta, only 15 minutes away. Villa Mandarinas’ distinctive architecture and unique colors can be seen in glimpses from the coastal road miles away. Villa Mandarinas’ beautiful stone driveway, greets guests with a spectacular view. The non-descript entrance to the house cannot prepare guests for the seven room estate that waits below. This is one of the features that assure not only privacy but security as well. Villa Mandarinas’ comfortable but luxurious ambience allows a person to truly relax, while still having all of the conveniences, amenities and connectivity with the outside world needed. This luxury Puerto Vallarta villa’s soaring ceilings, and conjoined great rooms open onto terraces, bedrooms, landings and patios throughout the house. The myriad variety of windows, glass doors and openings allow the natural environment to surround. The central feature of the house is the circular haya wood stairs. An open space with cathedral ceiling and wrap around glass doors accommodates a gourmet kitchen, spectacular dining room and spacious living room with ensuite. When opened, the outdoor space of patio, gardens, ‘palapa’ bar, brick oven and infinity pool merges with the interior. All of the furniture, artifacts, and decorations throughout the house only enhance the Mexican experience. Four hand blown chandeliers complement the loftiness and colors of the home. One chandelier illuminates a one of a kind sabino wood table carved from a single tree trunk. Seating up to sixteen guests, or more, the view over the infinity pool and across the bay to the islands is nothing short of amazing. The seven master bedrooms also boast spectacular views of the bay. They each have their own distinct aspect of style, decor, and include an iPod dock. In one bedroom there is a sink that has been carved from a volcanic boulder. Two other master bathrooms share a single pillar of stone stretching across two floors and binding the rooms with the elements of the land. An eighth bedroom has twin beds that can be pushed together to form a king bed. Amenities of the villa include an open playroom with pool table, bar, large 50” flat screen TV and lounge area; a fitness center with elliptical trainer, treadmill, weights and a fire pit. Those looking to rent Mexican villas will be delighted with the saltwater pool just steps away from the private man-made beach. A private pier gives access to kayaks, great ‘on location’ snorkeling and the villa’s own private or local motorboat. Fully staffed with a housekeeper, chef, breakfast cook, waiter and bilingual general manager. Laundry service, babysitting, extra guards and a chauffeured vehicle, as well as many other services, are available for additional fees, upon request.
