The pristine La Barrita beach is a short five minute walk from the villa. This unspoiled, uncrowded beach features quaint mom and pop restaurants serving a fresh variety of locally caught seafood. The beach is protected by a gentle outcropping of rocks, making it perfect for swimming, boogie boarding, or just working on your tan and sipping a cold beverage.
We can also arrange excursions for world class fishing trips, nights out on the town, parasailing, horseback riding, water parks, etc.
Security wise. Rest assured that the Spyglass villa perfectly safe! I believe that our 50 five star reviews speak for themselves! I know of no other place, (the US included) where we religiously leave our car keys in the ignitions and don't bother to lock doors. We are located in a small community where everyone is on a first name basis. Out of an over abundance of caution, we have an automated gated entrance with a gatekeeper. We also employ a state of the art video security system.
Please keep in mind that we offer substantial discounts for smaller groups! This way, everyone the opportunity to share our little slice of our paradise!
Wherever your travel plans take you. The entire staff of Spyglass wish you a most wonderful and memorable vacation!

Friends of ours had rented the Spyglass villa several months ago and they couldn’t stop talking about it. In fact that’s all they talked about for weeks! They told us all about the gorgeous vill and it's beautiful the gardens, the pristine beaches, how fantastic the staff was, how warm and friendly the locals were and when it came to the honeymoon suite, forget about it! They also mentioned their trip to Ixtapa to go parasailing and play a round of golf during their trip. They proudly showed off photos from their trip, including their fishing excursion out of Puerto Vincent. I must say that the amount and size of the fish they caught was truly amazing! So naturally we were interested in learning more about Spyglass for ourselves. We started out by visiting the Spyglass website, carefully taking in all the information that it contained. The website was very helpful in as it had a lot of useful information about the beaches, the surrounding area, local activities etc. Even more important it had a ton of photos. Not only were their photos of the palacios villa from every possible vantage point, but there were photos of the beaches, the local towns, the fishing excursions, the wild life and everything in between. While they were down there our friends briefly met Matthew, the owner of Spyglass and he informed them that he had personal taken every photo that’s on his website. We’ve rented other villas before and noticed that some of the photos they show on their website were obviously lifted from the internet! Our family ritual is to spend our winter vacation Cancun, but after reviewing the Spyglass website we started to think twice about that. Then our friends told us to read the reviews on VRBO and that’s what really clenched it for us! The Spyglass has a myriad of perfect reviews. It’s as of everyone who’s ever rented Spyglass had all died and went to heaven! Well, I am here to tell you that everyone one of those review is spot on! Like all of those tenants that came before us, we too, were blown away from the moment we stepped our of our car at the villa until the moment we reluctantly stepped back into the car to catch out flight home. Never before has our family enjoyed such a memorable vacation. Everything about what we now refer to as the “Spyglass Experience” was above and beyond our expectations. I know that for those who’ve had the pleasure if renting Spyglass that I’m just preaching
This was a trip of a lifetime for our family. Our group of 21 where 5 couples and children ranging in age from 3 1/2 to 16. The accommodation was spectacular with everything as advertised. We arrived to beautifully decorated rooms, pleasant efficient staff, clean pools and lush landscaping. One of the best things was we were all together for meals and activities but could find quiet space if needed. We loved the authentic little village of La Barrita, the fun local kids, the friendly beach bars (Corona was 1.00$ a bottle ) the local craftsmen, fishing guides and fun uncrowded beach. It was so laid back and non commercial. Some special extras were the piñata Birthday party, the baby turtle release, the coconut climbing with Mando and the pool and bar specials for all ages. Our few concerns might have been the language barrier while at the villa. Mando was our only consistent translater. We also think the set up for paying groceries might be addressed. Possibly a flat rate for children and adults. Given the cost of living in the area our grocery bills seemed somewhat high. The taxi rates were also high. We paid 100.00$ US per van one way. Aside from these issues our vacation at Spyglass was amazing. Thanks to Matthew and all your staff. We would go next year in a heartbeat.
We just returned home from seven days in paradise. We had one of the best vacations ever. After reading all the Spyglass villa reviews on the VRBO and discussing all the details of our trip with Matthew, we were convinced that the Spyglass villa would be a good fit for the 18 people in our party. Seeing the villa in person nearly took our breath away! The views from sprawling Spyglass compound are to die for! The villa itself is gigantic and filled with authentic Mexican antiquities and art, which gives one the warmth and hospitality that only Mexico has to offer! The fresh water Swimming pool with it’s beautiful pavilion wet bar, outdoor shower and dedicated bathroom was another fun hang out spot. Our grandkids loved the kiddie pool. For the grown ups, the real treat was the salt water swimming pool with it’s own bar and relaxation room down at the oceans edge next to the honeymoon suite. The staff of seven from house manger Luis, to Gracia and Esmeralda who did the cooking, to the housekeeping lady’s and Juan Carlos, who attended to our every want and need, all provided truly outstanding service. The meals were fabulous! In addition to the villa’s outstanding fresh seafood, there are also a handful of seafood restaurants on the beach that serve up fresh oysters, ceviche are to die for and the Corona’s are ice cold! La Barrita beach is not crowded and quite pristine. The ocean temperature is perfect and the locals are very friendly. It’s a four minute jaunt to the beach but for my 80 year old father, the staff always drove him. We enjoyed relaxing massages. On our fishing trips we caught all kinds of fish and saw all kinds of beautiful sea life. We felt totally safe on our entire trip! Not only at the Spyglass villa, but on all of our various excursions. If one takes the time as I did, and read all the reviews on VRBO it will put your mind to rest about any safety concerns. Spyglass comes with a night watchman as part of the staff. However, Matthew told me that in the seventeen years of owning the villa, that he personally has never used a night watchman. Because he knows that it’s the safest community in the area. To me, that say’s a lot! I would highly recommend this fabulous luxury villa to anyone of any age group to experience for themselves all that paradise has to offer at a very reasonable price point!
