How to Rent a Private Villa

Recommended Posts

Hello Ladies!

 

So my FI and I decided on renting a private villa in the Riviera Maya area instead of getting married at a resort. Because we are only having 14 guests, it would actually be cheaper for us. Renting a villa means I don't have to pay for all those "guest" fees to have a makeup/hair/florists/DJ/mariachi band etc come. Also, we can end the party later than at a resort. But I have never rented a villa before and never really know about how to do so. Any of you know really good websites to search for villas? Also, what kinds of things should I be asking in terms of contracts, fees, etc? I have no clue when it comes to renting villas so ANY information would be of great help !! Thank you so much!

Congrats diana22! and welcome to this wonderful forum resouce :) you'll find loads of great info + help here.

 

One thing I would suggest you may consider and ask about when searching for a villa - is what kind of security features it includes.....ie in a gated community, guard(s), alarm system, etc? just for your peace of mind, as you're not " under the umbrella of a resort". 

 

That being said, it sounds so charming - to have your own vila for your private wedding celebration.......Awesome! Enjoy :)

Hola Diana,

 

A Villa is a great option and there are so many gorgeous areas with private villas for rent!  My number one recommendation is to only rent from a professional company with an active website and a good reputation!  I would avoid sites where individuals can post their own advertisements.  One company I have had good experiences with is Bric Rentals (www.bricrental.com). 

 

If you haven't already, hiring a local wedding planner would also make the planning process much much easier! 

 

Happy planning and let us know how we can help!

If you are renting a villa, will you be hiring a separate wedding planner? If you are, you could find a wedding company to plan for you first, then ask for villa recommendations.

Hi Diana,

 

I had a villa wedding at Hacienda del Mar (an 11 bedroom oceanfront villa in Puerto Aventuras. Here's a lovely website of villas: http://www.villasofdistinction.com/villas/riviera-maya/hacienda-del-mar/.

 

You will not regret your villa wedding. Also, I just posted about things to consider for a villa vs resort wedding, for when you are taking your next steps.

 

Good luck!

One of my favorite villa weddings is this one: http://www.playa.info/playa-del-carmen-forum/59230-our-wedding-playacar-11-days-playa-del-carmen-nov-2010-a.html

 

I'd also suggest hiring a planner to help bring it all together. You'll want to spend your time enjoying your friends and family, not running around and organizing! They can also help sort all the payments and coordinate with vendors. A huge plus.

Hello!

 

The wedding referenced above, Jen and Adams, is one of the weddings we get asked about most! Renting a villa is a great option for those of you wanting something totally private and customizable.

 

Playacar has several beautiful options.

There are many, many villa options to choose from, Puerto Aventuras, Akumal, Playa del Carmen, Tulum...almost harder to choose one than a regular resort but a FABULOUS idea! Happy planning!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
