About the property

10,000 Sq Ft Living. 5,000 Sq Ft Of Terraces, 8 Bedroom 10 Bath Mexican Hacienda

Villa de Los Leones... 'House of the Lions"..was built and designed by Guilermo Wulff, Vallarta's most famous architect. This Mexican Hacienda style villa is filled with charm and character and although very large, over 10,000 sq ft. + 5,000 sq ft of terraces, it is extremely intimate and private. It is beautifully decorated with Mexican antiques , artifacts and art. Every important room has a wonderful Banderas Bay, city and lights, beach, surf and tropical view. Bricks, beams, ironwork, cupolas, 7 fireplaces, shutters, beautiful tiles, landscaping, terraces and fountains enhance the property and add to the appeal. The extensive outside terraces off of all the rooms extend the living areas to the outdoors. The beautiful private grounds and setting finish the package. Large inviting oval pool is surrounded by brick terrace. Resort size 30' tall palapa area has its own kitchen and bar and provides lounging and entertaining space for 2 or up up to 50+. There is a pool table here to enjoy as well.

There are 2 significant master suites. The main one has a fantastic bedroom area that has fabulous views and is enhanced with its vaulted tiled ceiling with huge beams, beautiful fireplace and decor. It has an adjoining view sitting TV room, there is a large dressing room with closets and a fabulous bathroom with incredible views. Beautiful Mexican tiles surround the double sinks, separate tub and shower. Bricked ceiling with cupola.

The second largest master is over the family room and has spectacular views from the beautiful bedroom , bathroom and closet dressing area.

Downstairs on main level are 2 lovely bedrooms with private bathrooms. Upstairs adjoining main master are 2 more lovely bedrooms with bathrooms. These 4 bedrooms all have beautiful distinctive fireplaces, built in benches, high beam ceilings, beautiful hand made Mexican tiled bathrooms, walls of shutters that open to the terrace and gorgeous bay views in tropical setting. There are 2 more bedrooms with baths upstairs off the kitchen patio/fountain area. Also upstairs in the main house is a large office and sitting/game room.

One of everyone's favorite rooms is the family room/bar/TV room with 2 large pairs of shutters that open the space to spectacular views and sunsets.The great bar is perfect for making and serving all your favorite tropical beverages.

What is truly unique is the floor plan. At street level is the majority of living so each wonderful distinctive space opens to the next..if there are older adults in the group they will appreciate that all the main spaces... living, kitchen, dining, huge adjoining terraces, 2 bedrooms and garage are all on 1 level. Also you can look down to the pool area and see everything that is happening there. This open flowing floor plan makes this property exceptional for events such as weddings, renunions, corporate retreats and large and small family gatherings.

Fantastic, Marvelous & Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 15 had high expectations mostly from my teasing and being somewhat secretive of what I was calling the Mexican dream vacation. From the minute of walking in the door we were awestruck, the place was breathtaking and for 8 incredible days that feeling stayed with you. The staff was a huge part of the overall experience, the chef spoiled us where nobody wanted to go out to eat , they were so accommodating and friendly they became part of the family. Breakfast on the patio watching whales play in the bay was a great start to each day. The owners took the time to talk with us about the place prior to any payment and they were very honest and sincere about wanting their guests to have more than a vacation, they wanted to provide an experience and that is what we had. Thank-you.

Owner's Response: The Lyng Family is so happy that all of you shared such a memorable time and we could help make it special. We feel so fortunate to be the care takers of Villa Leones and are able to share it with others. The staff is like family to us as well and they truly love the home and the opportunity to take great care and provide the best service for us and the guests.

Absolutely stunning property w outstanding staff

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Conchas Chinas was simply wonderful. The property was breathtaking with the the ocean views and open air rooms-all centered around a pool that fit our family and friends. It is a very short walk to a nice beach and a quick taxi ride into town. The staff can recommend restaurants and activities in the area.

The staff exceeded our expectations and went above and beyond. When we asked if there were coconuts nearby the staff surprised us by bringing them the next day and making us delicious drinks. If we had a dinner request Angel made sure to cook what we asked for and it was outstanding. When we requested a Birthday cake for my daughter it came-when my husband asked for Octopus they found it. All the food and service will be hard to beat anywhere we go in the future. I highly recommend this property along with the staff. Angelica, Fernando, Fernando and Angel were excellent.

The perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We recently got back from Casa leones, where we were lucky enough to stay with 14 close friends. The staff is absolutely amazing and will bend over backwards to ensure you have everything you need. Fernando made sure we never went hungry or thirsty when we were at the pool, Omar made the most delicious meals for us every day, and Angelica and Samantha made sure the house always looked prestine.

The bedrooms are all spectacular, and most of them have a direct ocean view. It is an open air concept so you can listen to the waves as you lay in bed. The layout is perfect and everyone had their own space when needed.

You will need a taxi to get downtown but the wonderful staff always arranged them for us. The downside is that the beach by the house isn't very swimmable due to rocks. We walked about 20 minutes down towards town and were able to swim just fine. I highly recommend staying here!

Wow!!! Amazing home!!! Great staff!!

  • 5 of 5

I have been fortunate to travel the world and have to say the staff at this amazing home was simply the best service I have ever received. The house is decorated exquisitely and fairly centrally located. You will need taxi service for rides into town but have to say the house is so amazing you never want to leave. Great for a family vacation. Sally was great to work with and made sure everything was perfect. Highly recommmed!!

Conchas Chinas
Car: not necessary

Lower Conchas Chinas is the ideal place to stay in Puerto Vallarta. You are at the nicest, most scenic, most photographed beach in all of Vallarta. There are usually very few people there which adds to enjoyment. The location to the villa is easily accessible...about 200' out private back gate. . No steep hills to go up or down. You can walk everywhere easily if you want or take a short cab ride. The bay in front of the villa is ideal for snorkeling or diving around the rocks. Great for kayaking and paddle boarding. Ideal for children to play in the warm water and tide pools. Perfect for sunbathing and swimming.

The villa is much more private than most all of the others that are right on the sand where people sit right in front of you and you can have possible loud music at night. Or others that are exposed to the neighbors. Villa Leones is very private.

The villa is accessed on the main hi way which makes it really convenient. Once you enter the compound you've entered a magical world... it is extremely private and all you can hear are the sounds of the crashing waves. The property is more of an estate with grounds, a tropical paradise.
