If you ever wonder how billionaires celebrate life to most affordable way I know to answer that question is by staying at Casa Yvonneka.
I have stayed at some utterly incredible places in my life. Casa Yvonneka is as good as any and at the highest echelon of quality, not just for the villa itself but the way it marries incredible service with a setting that constantly had us saying "YES!".
Let me give you an example:
We had a staff of 6 wait on us hand and foot. ALWAYS incredible food ready and waiting for us that is home cooked. We would come "home" at 4 am sometimes (I had a team of around 20 people staying at the villa) and when we would come through the door, the staff were there, waiting with big smiles and food/ drinks ready to go. What do you want to eat? Just tell them. The selection of meals was amazing. The only negative about Casa Yvonneka I can think of is that you might gain a couple pounds :) but what is vacation for, right? The staff are lead by Magdelena. I read in other reviews that she made things feel like home. I didn't expect that I would be hugging her as much as I hug my own mother when I am home.
As for the villa, the pictures on the site www.casayvonneka.com are great, but it is actually a lot better in person. As they guide you through the place when you first check in I actually gasped a number of times. Usually a villa has one area where everyone congregates and that is poolside. Well that's an incredible area at Casa Yvonneka but there are two other areas just as good and that are HUGE. It is 5 stories high and you could actually stay on a few different floors depending on your whimsy and not feel like you are missing out.
With a group the size that I had one thing I thought I would struggle with it "who gets which room?". I didn't expect EVERY SINGLE ROOM to be incredible. They are all themed with TVs and bathrooms. Very spacious. People didn't feel like they got the short end of the stick. I actually spoke with the owner Yvonne (she was in LA not on site) and had to find out more about her. Who builds a place like this I wondered??
If you want more details about the location you can read some of the reviews. I just know as I started looking for a holiday rental I kept thinking "what's this place going to be like?" Well now that I know I wouldn't dare take a chance ever renting with anyone else in Puerto Vallarta again. Why? This place is a total GRAND SLAM HOME RUN in the bottom of the 9th inning of the 7th game of the World Series.
Simply put: IT DOES NOT GET BETTER.
