Villas Franchesca and Kikeya are side-by-side and owned by the same individual. These villas are located in Centro, just 3 blocks from the city centre. Hundreds of restaurants and shops are within easy walking distance and there is even a bike rental shop a couple of doors away. Our family of 5 adults stayed in Villa Kikeya for two weeks in Dec. 2009 and have nothing but rave reviews. Robert was excellent to deal with and gave us invaluable tips on P.V., Lorena looked after the housekeeping daily and was a pleasure to get to know. The villas are in a mixed neighborhood of local residents and tourists and it was great to get a feel for how the the "real" people of this city live. The villa is spacious, great for two couples and had fabulous views of the city and the ocean from the roof patio. The traditional enclosed patio with plunge pool off the master bedroom was a wonderful place to read in the heat of the day or to have breakfast in the morning. Wireless internet and lots of channels on a large screen TV were appreciated by my children. A washer and dryer are provided which was VERY convenient. My only caution is that if you have difficulty climbing steep hills or stairs, you will have to use a cab for this location - it was perfect for us because the stairs up from the lower streets gave us lots of good exercise! We will definitely stay at Villa Kikeya again when visiting Puerto Vallarta.
