Agency: Costa Vallarta Boutique Villas
With only 16 villas around Puerto Vallarta, the agency can deliver a very high level of personal attention, crafting excursions that could include anything from aerial sightseeing tours to a guided ramble through a nearby jungle.

Description
Set on a hillside overlooking the Bay of Banderas, this four-bedroom house in Puerto Vallarta was once home base to movie director John Huston (he rented it while filming his masterpiece, "Night of the Iguana"). Though the property is still old-world opulent, it's been thoroughly modernized since then, with sleek contemporary furniture, a shiny-new kitchen, and original paintings by celebrated Mexican artists (owner Raquel Brooks also has a gallery in town). Two cooks, a housekeeper, and a handyman are on hand to cater to your every need.
