Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 6.0 Bathrooms, 8 Sleeps

Casa Galeana is a contemporary luxury villa that fuses organic and Mexican details. Located hillside, a short walk to beach and the Malecon boardwalk, you will be perfectly poised for the ultimate tropical holiday. Set at the top of a hill, and at end of a cul-de-sac, this bijou villa offers magnificent views, yet remains very private and offers easy access to the beach and the bustle of downtown.

A special design of famed architect Alberto Alvarez, this luxury villa has a spectacular top level with open entertainment, living and dining areas, all under a giant palapa lined with bamboo. This spectacular space opens onto a spacious terrace with a heated infinity pool, a barbeque, an outdoor kitchen and breathtaking 180 degree views of town and the Bay of Banderas. Alfresco dining is a great experience as you take in the vistas. Indoors at Casa Galeana, you will find a media room, DVD player, satellite TV, a sound system with iPod dock and a wet bar. An elevator, Wi-Fi access and purified water are provided for your convenience. Your reservation includes a chef service for two meals a day and housekeeping.

Luxurious details from marble floors to granite countertops and GE Monogram appliances create a truly contemporary getaway with all the splendor of the tropics. The interior palapa-style high ceiling creates a lovely overtone above the comfortable living area and contemporary dining set with a giant glass top. Tasteful and whimsical artworks create a truly unique atmosphere at Casa Galeana.

The villa accommodates up to fourteen guests, and children are welcome. The two master suites feature en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning, TVs and access to a shared terrace with breathtaking views. Of the other four bedrooms, three offer a spectacular shared terrace overlooking the town and ocean, and the final bedroom provides a private terrace and partial sea views.

During the winter and early spring seasons, the bay is visited by whales, dolphins and other intriguing sea creatures. Every day, the aerial dance of pelicans gliding along the tips of the ocean waves never ceases to amaze. Whether for golf or water sports, shopping or nightlife, there is something for everyone under the therapeutic Riviera sun. As the days wind down, recline with your favorite cocktail at Casa Galeana and enjoy the magical sunsets!

Outstanding view with friendly attentive service

  • 5 of 5

Warm friendly greeting, Casa Galeana is very well organised and run - Lucy was extremely helpful, Chef Louis' food was exceptional - bartender/waiter Felix was always friendly and available and made excellent drinks and Ana's housecleaning was superb. Air conditioner issues on the first few days were rectified so that guests were able to sleep more comfortably. The overall standard of the service and food at the villa was outstanding.

Casa Galeana

  • 5 of 5

The home is amazing with views of PV in most of the bedrooms. The pool is an oasis above the bustling city below which can be viewed. Luis the chef provided daily culinary meals which meet 5 star ratings. Reyes was always there with a cocktail for us and smoothies for our grandchildren. The entire staff was welcoming and inviting to make this feel like home for a week. One draw back is the drive up the steep road which if the roads were wet we would not of been able to drive up. A delight to get there but, make sure you have a 4X4 to make it to this wonderful home.

it was absolutely marvelous!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The drive up appeal is not the best or even close but once we entered the villa it was one of the most beautiful places that I have ever stayed. At best it's a 5 star! When you read past guest complaints about the hill to reach Casa Galeana they is true. The walk down was hard but walking back up the hill was like training for mountain climbing and to think we walked up and down twice but on the third trip we took a taxi but he could only make it partly up the hill before we started smell the rubber on his tires burning so we had to get out with our groceries and hike the rest of the way....which was excruciating. But again once we entered the villa and we were back in heaven! The staff was the best I have ever experienced. We all wish we could have brought them back home with us : ). We have already decided that we will return in about 3-5 yrs just because it was the just right place for us. I would highly recommend Casa Galeana to anyone wanting to vacation in Puerto Vallarta.

The house and staff...

  • 5 of 5

The house and staff exceeded my expectations. The staff was polite, helpful, professional and very friendly. We had a group of 11 and we didn't have any complaints about our house or staff. Our chef cooked amazing meals and Lucy our manager is super sweet and on it! The house is very clean with amazing views and every bedroom was spacious.

Casa Galeana - Awesome Stay

  • 5 of 5

The house and services were more than I expected. Everyone who stayed at this house enjoyed every bit of it. The house was clean and the staff were very professional and courteous. The chef cooked the most amazing meals. We will definitely stay here again if we visit PV. The only caveat to the house is the steep hill, but we all believe it was well worth it because it was situated in an area with many bars and restaurants. The view of the rooftop deck was amazing.
