About Jordan MacPherson

Roger and Nancy MacPherson with the help of their daughter Jordan have worked to make this vacation destination an unparalleled experience. Together we have owned properties in Puerto Vallarta for over 25 years now and have always loved the friendly family culture and inviting environment. Villa Estrella Mar in PV was built with the idea of having an authentic rustic Mexican architectural experience. The design provides many private spaces to relax but has gathering places to celebrate together. Our staff is one of our biggest assets. The English-speaking house staff is there to help with any of your needs from adventures to food choice. They are employed full time and can be trusted as they pamper you and your friends.

Jordan MacPherson purchased this villa in 1995

Why Jordan MacPherson chose Amapas

The Romantic zone in Puerto Vallarta is a true treasure of Mexico, nestled below the plush jungle hillsides with its cobblestone roads and beautiful homes with phenomenal views. As the city has grown it has maintained its friendly personality and rustic feel, you will see families strolling hand in hand down the Malecon and will always feel safe. Villa Estrella Mar embraces this same personality and maintains that authentic rustic feel while being known as one of the most complete and beautiful villas in the entire world. The Villas closeness to Old Town is an easy walk by beach or by winding stone lane road. You are so close but without the vendor noise and hustle. It's truly a jewel and we would love to share it with you! There is no place in Puerto Vallarta that can even come close to the luxury and convenience that this Villa offers.

Outstanding Stay! Exceeded Expectations in so man

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 15 stay at Villa Estrella Mar for my husband's 60th birthday. From the first time I contacted Jordan until the moment we left, everything was superb.

I am a planner and had many questions for Jordan before our arrival. I wanted everything to be perfect for my husband's birthday. Jordan was informative, patient and very generous with her time.

When we arrived at the Villa, all I can say is WOW! The house is absolutely stunning. The main floor with the living room and kitchen is spacious with several different seating areas and a cool breeze blowing through the house. The bedrooms were also gorgeous. The Master suite and Jr. Master Suite are regal and grand. And the four other suites were also beautiful - very grand and spacious in their own right. We stayed in the Master and I can say that I would have been very happy in any of the other 5 rooms. The only one with a different feel is the twin room - quite a bit smaller though still with a balcony overlooking the pool. This would be perfect for kids, or fine for a single person.

The staff really made the stay special. Paco was so helpful, patient and kind. Gibran was wonderful as well and Lupe's meals were delicious. We ate at the Villa every night and morning which is so much nicer for a large group than venturing into a restaurant. The breakfasts were my favorite, especially the french toast. And every meal we had was so delicious.

There were many other staff members around as well who were so gracious - Arturo and others who were quietly cleaning the rooms and doing maintenance of the property, in a very non-obtrusive way. There were even some men taking down some coconuts on a nearby tree for maintenance, and when they were done, the brought the Coconuts to us with a straw to drink the Coconut water.

Another nice touch, just to give you a feel for it, was every night during dinner, they would quietly go into each room, close all the blinds, and turn on the AC, so when you went to your room at night it was cool and ready for a good night's rest.

The pool was heated the the perfect temperature so we could languish in it for hours. We even went swimming at night after dinner. The more adventurous ones in the group walked down to the beach a few steps below and went for long swims over to the pier during the day.

Many in our group were already talking about returning next year. This is an outstanding place for a family reunion or other group gathering.

Absolutely breathtaking villa and awesome staff!

  • 5 of 5

First off, Jordan was extremely helpful and responsive to all my questions about the property before booking. Jordan also helped coordinate transportation and food, prior to our arrival. This coordination took all the planning out of our trip, which made a stress free vacation.

I read several reviews about the villa, before I booked. A number of guests complimented Paco and his staff. After our stay, I can confirm all of the positive comments were legitimate. They truly went above and beyond to meet our needs. Whether that meant delaying breakfast, running to the store for more drinks, or making dinner reservations, they did it all. Plus, the food was better at the villa than in town!

Lastly the location just can't be beat. The views were incredible, the pool was perfect, the beach was great, and downtown was just a 5min drive.

All of my guests were absolutely blown away by everything the property had to offer. This was like any other vacation I have ever booked. It convenience, luxury, and relaxation in one package. I will definitely be making another trip back. Trip of a life time!

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

On my second trip to Puerto Vallarta, I had the privilege to stay at Villa Estrella Mar. WOW! Immediately after walking through the front door, I knew I was in paradise. No matter where I was in the Villa, I was blown away by a gorgeous view of the ocean.

Can we talk about the food? Delicious! As someone with dietary restrictions, the staff was so wonderful with accommodating my needs. I still dream of how good the french toast was at breakfast!

Jordan was fantastic! Before the trip, she suggested fun excursions for our group of 15 people to do. My favorite was a snorkeling trip and hiking to a waterfall.

Lastly, the Villa was a perfect distance to town. Just a short walk to the shops and restaurants. Which was great when I was ready for a cool down after walking around town and wanted to jump in the pool!

Can’t wait to book next years friends getaway!

My favorite place to stay in Puerto Vallarta!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Estrella Mar with a group of friends and it was such an fantastic experience and vacation for everyone! The location is perfect and feels secluded even though you're just a short walk from Old Town via the beach or cobble stone street. The Villa staff is wonderful and the meals, OH the meals!!! I'm still day dreaming about all of the delicious food we ate and drinks we enjoyed by the private pool. The rooms are VERY spacious and the beds are comfortable. I've been to Puerto Vallarta many times and this is by far my favorite place to stay! Jordan was a dream to work with on booking this property. She is very organized and responsive. I'll definitely be doing more business with her.

What an amazing experience!!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this villa to all! From the moment I became in contact with Jordan she was the most organized and helpful person when booking the house. She helped answer all my questions so when I arrived I knew what to expect.

The house itself doesn’t need much explanation as you can see from the pictures of how beautiful it is. What made the trip was the staff. The meals they cooked were delicious and they helped us out with everything from cabs to buying more beverages for the group.

Can’t say enough about how good my experience was and would recommend to anyone looking to go to puerto Vallarta.

Simply Incredible

  • 5 of 5

Villa Estrella Mar is by far one of the best vacation destinations I have experienced. After having been to Puerto Vallarta many times over the years, I didn’t think it could get any better. Boy was I wrong! Villa Estrella Mar far surpassed my expectations. The property beautifully represents the best in authentic decor, the staff masterfully provides for every need while having fun with the guests, and words cannot do the views complete justice. You have to experience Villa Estrella Mar to fully understand how magical it is. Have some coconut shrimp and a frozen margarita by the pool, you’ll be in heaven!
