Affordable private villas?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I have been looking for a private villa to host my wedding fo about 75 guests. It seems that most have a 3 night minimum plus a 1 night event fee - so the total is turning out to be around $4000 minimum in low season!

 

Does anyone know of any villas without that stipulation? That will let you have it for one or two nights only, or waive the event fee?

 

I want to have an affordable wedding but am shocked that my $20,000 budget looks like it won't be enough at this rate!

When I first began looking, I had the same reaction also. I think the best thing you can do is contact a villa rental agency and have them do the legwork for you.  They're pretty familiar with wedding villas and your requirements. Some of them are: Casa Bay Villas (www.casabayvillas.com: Jennifer Lawrence, the proprieter is very nice), La Punta Realty (www.lapuntarelaty.com: they take some time getting back to you, but have some nice properties), Casa Helga (www.casahelga.com: I didn't particularly care for her attitude), Casa Garza Blanca (very affordable), Vacation Rentals By Owners (www.vrbo.com: allows you to contact the owner directly), Boutique Villas (www.boutiquevillas.com).

 

When I visited PV for the first time in 2009, I rented thru Casa Bay Villas. She has a ton of info, photos, and can direct you to planners, etc. You probably already came across Casa China Blanca, Villa Mia, and Casa Valerie. Those are the main wedding villas. Think outside PV as well. You can find villas anywhere from Sayulita to Mismaloya. I think those agencies will give you a good starting spot for $20,000. Let me know if you need any other help!

I'm not sure on prices, but I know one of the Azul resorts, Azul Beach  http://www.karismahotels.com/resort/azul-villa-carola-karisma has a private villa on the resort so your guests have the option to stay at the resort or villa and you can pick an AI plan at the villa or do your own cooking.  The villa looks gorgeous and it has great wedding ceremony locations.

This villa is too small for what you're looking for, but if anyone here is looking for a more intimate wedding, 50 people or less, I highly recommend this one:

The owner, Steve, is SUCH a great help and it's very affordable. I've already booked it for mine, 18 months in advance! :) 

 

Hope you find something that suits your party size.

Solymar ... you might try Terra Noble - it's not a villa, but it's a spa with a view of Vallarta - the prices are super affordable.  You might also try Martoca - it's located right on the beach and has a beautiful garden.  Also Don Pedro's Palapa which is located in Sayulita - palapa overlooking Sayulita - also affordable event rental IF you use their catering services :).

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
