WOW! AMAZING-GORGEOUS VIEW!
WOW! AMAZING-GORGEOUS VIEW!
Unbelievable property! Welcomed by the owners themselves who were staying at their home nearby. Amy and Antonio showed us around and gave many recommendations for restaurants, things to do, etc. Multiple beautiful pools to choose from with a great beach front club. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. They kept the drinks coming. Spa on the property offered massages beachside-very romantic. The neighborhood was breathtaking, helpful staff throughout and we met a lot of great people. Close to a lot of activities and some great golf in Punta de Mita. Recommended, A+ holiday!

Amazing views and spacious living
Amazing views and spacious living
We rented this penthouse condo for 3 weeks in November and we enjoyed our stay very much. Any minor issues thar arose, Amy the owner was very responsive and quick to remedy. The condo is quite grand and well equipped. The beds are comfortable and the linens are of good quality. The grounds and many pools of Punta Esmeralda are stunning, and I agree you do get quickly asked whether you are a renter or owner, but most people were quite lovely. The yoga on the premises were simply the best I have ever taken, and the views while in a tree pose are forever embedded in my mind! The restaurant on site served the BEST eggs Benedict we have ever had, which led us to Marsala in La Cruz for some lovely dinners, the chef run the restaurant on site and owns Marsala. We danced many a night at Philo's and dream of one day being able to spend our winters in this hidden gem of Mexico. You certainly will appreciate the care and expense of being able to rent such an incredible condo.

Owner response: What wonderful and gracious guests! Yes, people do ask if you are owners/renters...because if you are owners and they have not met you, the welcome wagon will be sent! It definitely is a neighbourly community. You are welcome back any time - thank you!
My husband and I are back from one month of vacation in this huge Punta Esmeralda condo. Simply gorgeous. View, space of living, furnitures, quietness, everything as expected, Thanks to Amy the owner. Based on our experience, she understands and knows how to answer her customer's needs and concerns. Every day, we used the pool on the terrace, back from the gym (quite well equipped for a small gym) or when we wanted to cool off from the sun. Good balance between sun and shadow on the large terrace. The spa offers different massages and other treatments one may need. The restaurant on the beach (Masala) offers breakfasts and lunches. Julio, the chef, offers a wide variety of fresh foods. We went there everyday for lunch. Good quality/price choice. There are elevators and 2 cable cars going from the top of the development to the beach!!!!! What a good idea to use it when we were going back home in the afternoon, in the heat of the day! Otherwise, there are many good restaurants around (La Cruz, Punta de Mita, Nuevo Vallarta). We rented a car because PV is at 20 km. It's better than using the bus which can take almost an hour to go to Puerto Vallarta. We golfed many times, although the courses didn't seem well maintained as is was 5 years ago when we first went to PV. The Yacht Club in La Cruz (5 minutes by car) is also a good place for a drink or a quick lunch or dinner. Of course, Puerto Vallarta is not far and easy to reach. We went there to stroll along the boardwalk, to visit art galleries and just walk in the old city. What else? We would go back any time! Thanks again, Amy and Antonio!

The owners were apologetic when we arrived after the unit incurred damages from a previous renter. They offered and refunded 50% of our booking fee for a couple of days inconvenience while a crew undertook the repairs. Other than that, everything was great! The Penthouse was spacious with amazing artwork and pottery from Mexican artisans. While the location afforded close proximity to a variety of restaurants and town. Plenty of beach for the kids to play. Definitely will return!!

Owner response: Thank you for your reply, the owner is a lovely person who has a beautiful property, and wishes nothing but a "perfect stay" for all of her guests. Unfortunately, the previous guests damaged her home and had to be charged a damage deposit (first time ever), It was a "very" unpleasant experience. It is nice to deal with nice guests, such as yourselves. We hope you had a wonderful vacation and would love to have you back again!
Great place, SHADY owners!
Great place, SHADY owners!
I gave this unit 3 stars because the unit itself was very nice and spacious, however, the owners, management company, and cleaning crew left ALOT to be desired. Just after leaving, we were hit with an email saying that we "trashed" the place and that there were missing items, etc... NONE of this was true, in fact we ended up taking a video at checkout time to show friends and family. The management company and owner were not interested in the facts, instead they were focused on milking their clients for every last dollar they could. I would NOT reccomend staying at this place or anyone place by this owner or management company, unless you want to be called a liar and a thief after dropping alot of money for a week. Also: If you have kids or are under the age of 55 probably not the best place. Punta Esmeralda is kind of like a hidden retirement community. The "owners" of condos there ask you up front " are you renting or do you own?". If you answer renting, that is the last you will hear from anyone and noses go up in the air. In addition, the residents and staffing are not too excited about kids being kids in the pools and you will get hassled for splashing too much. Hopefully you will read this and pass along the information to your friend and family. I would hate to have thier vacation tarnished by a couple of bad apples.

Owner response: "As the owner, I love to share my beautiful home! Most guests refer others and return themselves to a place that exceeds expectations. My only expectation is my home be returned in the same condition in which it is offered to my guests. Unfortunately, that was not the case in this instance. Regrettably, these guests chose not to assume responsibility for their damage to my home."

What a magical place! A perfect way for us to celebrate our parent's 50th anniversary. Thank you for all the "extras"! The personal touches made it very special. We had beautiful time and hope to visit again soon. Many thanks, Keith and Olivia Salt Lake City, Utah
