Punta Esmeralda townhome description
Beautiful, professionally decorated 2 bedroom Beachfront townhome with a private infinity splash pool in the desirable Punta Esmeralda development 20 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
Perla 2 is a couples dream vacation home. Quiet, private, amazing ocean views, with an ambiance perfect for relaxation and reconnection.
Perla 2 is the closest unit to the water in Punta Esmeralda. Unobstructed full front view of Banderas Bay, with direct access to the mild ocean surf only yards away. Leave your Ambien at home. The sound of the ocean at night is truly the best sleep-aid we know of! This ground floor unit has one of the largest lanais and private splash pools in the well-managed complex.
Because of its unique ground floor position, on the water and near the south end of the complex, Perla 2 is very quiet with limited foot traffic or distractions. The common area pools and other public ammenities are close by, but no distracting noise or activities are heard. It's like being in your own private villa!
Warm, inviting, full of original local artwork and color.
We limit our rentals to only 12 weeks per year and cater primarily to couples. This greatly reduces wear-and tear, and keeps our home in excellent condition. There is a big difference in condition, decorating and ammenities on units that are used primarily for rental income, and private homes like ours that are well cared for and have limited rental use.
The Punta Esmeralda development is approximately 5 years old. It is an exceptionally well designed and secure property unlike anything on Banderas Bay. The complex has its own 24 hour security staff, gated entry, and closed-circuit security cameras throughout. Even at peak occupancy, Punta Esmeralda never feels crowded. The 228 unit complex is a combination of high rise condos with nice views that are up on the hills away from the beach, and private villas and townhomes directly on the beach. Perla 2 is one of a limited number of private beachfront townhomes that are available. Check the Punta Esmeralda location map at punta-esmeralda. com/townhouses_map.php for details.
Our bilingual (English/Spanish) local property manager can assist with any neccessary services you may require, including airport pick and return, local transportation, linen and maid service, activities, in-room spa and massage services, and any advance preparations. When you arrive, your Perla 2 vacation home will be open, clean and ready for your stay.
All basic supplies such as paper towels and paper products, cleaning/laundry, soaps and kitchen supplies are included. Bath and beach towels and all linens are freshly laundered before and after and ready for you. Stop at one of the close local markets like Walmart or Mega on your way to Perla 2 to stock up on your favorite vacation foods and beverages, and you are good to go!
NOTES: Please note that due to the large, non-gated, 3.5' deep ground level splash pool on the lanai, Perla 2 is not recommended for families with toddlers or small children. The quality art and furnishings make this unit most suitable for 2 to 4 adults looking for a relaxing, upscale get-away. Perla 2 is a 3 bedroom townhome, but is offered only as a 2 bedroom rental. The extra bedroom is on the opposite end of the living area, and does not affect the quality, usability or living flow of the unit in any way.

Never To B e Forgotten
Never To B e Forgotten
As we sadly returned to a slow ending winter in Canada, our memories of Perla 2 warmed our spirits. Your Townhome exceeded our expectations and we would love to enjoy a return visit. The listing description was more than accurate and we immediately felt right at home. We have enjoyed talking with friends about our trip and have nothing buy praise about our experiences.

Great family vacation spot
Great family vacation spot
My family and I just returned from 9 fabulous days at Kevin's home. The apartment was extremely spacious and well laid out. The amenities were first rate. The apartment is located on the beach with a wonderful splash pool on the deck. Our children are 5, 4 and 13 months. It was so nice to be able to have the kids swim without having to pack up everything. I cannot say enough great things about the place and its location. A dream property. The Punta Esmerelda estateis georgous and well maintained. We just booked a return trip for the same dates next year.

Owner response: We're very happy that Mike and his family enjoyed their holiday at Perla 2. Although, we have to wonder how much relaxation time you can get with children that are 5, 4 and a toddler! The splash pool on our lanai really is nice for people that don't want to lug stuff to the pool areas. Thanks for the great review, Mike. We've got you down for next year!
We were delighted in our recent stay to find Perla 2 even more outstanding in person than the pictures on the website. It is artistically decorated and impeccably maintained. The kitchen has some things I'd love to have at home. Every part of the townhouse is comfortable. The grounds of the complex are beautifully maintained, and we took advantage of the gym and spa facilities. The location is very peaceful and quiet, yet just a 20-30 minute walk in either direction to fun places to eat and shop. Kevin was very helpful and easy to work with in booking the unit. Overall the townhouse and facilities became our new all time favorite condo in Mexico.

A Vacation to Remember
A Vacation to Remember
You would think a 2 week vacation in the most glorious of locations in Punta Esmeralda would be enough, but we were so sad to leave! The location of Perla 2 is just ideal, a breath taking view of the Pacific Ocean from your patio, and easy access to all the walkways to all 8 of the pools at the property was just perfect, and our own private plunge pool was used daily, just heaven! The furnishings, linens, dishes and everything you would need in the kitchen was just perfect, and done with a Mexican flair! The other vacationers at Punta Esmeralda went out of their way to make us feel so welcome and the restaurant by one of the pools has delicious breakfasts and lunch, and they will deliver to your unit. Amazing weather, ease of booking, excellent accomodations and the friendliest people in the world made this a vacation we will never forget Leighann and Colin

Owner response: Wow - what a glowing review of Perla 2 and the Punta Esmeralda development! Of course, Pam & I think the same, but I guess we are a little biased. It's nice to know that our vacatiion home lives up to expectations, and that we can give people such a great vacation experience. Thanks Leighann and Colin, hope to see you back again!
Incredible View and Location!
Incredible View and Location!
I just completed my second stay at your property and both visits were wonderful. First stay was in September 2009 and second visit was March 2011. This unit has an incredible view and is right on the beach. It's very clean and well decorated...just as the pictures show. The owners have always been very quick to respond to questions and they made the rental process easy. Thank you Kevin and Pam for sharing your beautiful home. I can't wait for my next trip!

Owner response: We just love repeat visitors! Michelle is a pleasure to work with. And it's like she is never even there becaue she seems to spend all her time on the beach, on the water or exploring Puerto Vallarta. We also know security is a priority for Michelle, and Punta Esmeralda has some of the best on the Bay of Banderas. Thanks, Michelle. Hope to see you next year.
Punta Esmerelda is an extremely well thought out development, where each unit enjoys ultimate privacy and unbelievable views. Perla 2 is wonderfully located on the beachfront, yet sits up enough to enjoy the fantastic ocean breeze. Pam and Kevin's home is beautifully decorated, spotless, and very well equipped. They were a pleasure to deal with, and we would highly recommend the experience.

Owner response: David and his family were great to work with! Excellent communication made it easy for us to make sure they had what they needed for an enjoyable stay, and it appears that it was a win-win for all. It's also nice to know people that people that stay in Perla 2 feel that our descriptions of our home and of Punta Esmeralda are accurate. And Carly gets the prize for best entry in our Guest Book ever!
A Little Piece of Paradise!
A Little Piece of Paradise!
At the end of March, our family of four spent 6 glorious days in Perla Dos at Punta Esmeralda. The condo is beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The patio is extraordinary - with its amazing views, proximity to the beach and the splash pool, we rarely had a desire to go anywhere else. A nice feature of the resort is that it is quiet and away from the hubbub of PV, but close enough to Bucerias for restaurants and shopping. This is by far our favorite spot in the PV area. Thank you Kevin and Pam for allowing us to spend a bit of time at your little piece of paradise!

We just returned from a wonderful and relaxing vacation at Perla 2 in Punta Esmeralda. The condo is wonderful--beautifully decorated but also very warm and comfortable. Great patio and location with gorgeous views out to the bay. We enjoyed the beautifully landscaped grounds and many pools in the complex--also the nice little beachfront restaurant. We hope to come back soon.

Spectacular unobstructed view of Banderas Bay,shore line activity and morning sunrises from the privacy of our own spacious deck. Plenty of security and friendly neighbours made us feel very safe and comfortable during our stay. We highly recommend Peral 2 as a home away from home

About the owner: Hi! We're Pam and Kevin, owners of Perla 2 in Punta Esmeralda. We've been married for 30 years, and we work together as partners in our printing business in Los Angeles. Now that's togetherness!
Why the Owner Chose Punta Esmeralda:
We have owned vacation properties in California and Hawaii in the past, but Pam really loves the ocean and wanted to get closer to the water. It doesn't get any closer than this! Buying a place like this in southern California would easily cost over 3 million dollars to start, so that was obviously way, way out of our reach. Mexico still has some great values, but we were also looking for a more traditional Mexico. Not the high rises of Mazatlan and Cancun, or the plastic Americanized Cabo. Puerto Vallarta still feels like a Mexican fishing village, and the people are really friendly and nice. It is also one of the safest parts of Mexico, and we have never been concerned about security while in PV.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
We choose this place as a haven from our busy LA lives. We mostly just sit and enjoy the view of the bay. But we love going into the local towns for dinner and there is great dining. If we feel really adventureous, then there are great day trips in the mountains to local villages and sights.
