About the owner: US Couple who love Mexico and Banderas Bay.

Why the Owner Chose Punta Esmeralda:
We love the unique combination of serenity, on-site and nearby amenities afforded by this Punta-Esmeralda villa, one of four villas with two bedroom-bathroom suites + upper bedroom/adjoining bathroom. Completely separate walls on a hillside 25 meters up and 75 meters in from the surf on a 17-kilometer (10-mile) beach stretching from La Cruz through Bucerias to Nuevo Vallarta.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Private dipping pool below large terrace. Eight large pools, bar & grill, spa and fitness center, tennis courts on site. Wheelchair access: funicular to beach, pool and Wi-Fi grill three villas away. Walk to Bucerias or La Cruz along beach for shopping & meals, 24/7 taxis at security gate. SAILORS with friends NOTE: 300 lb diesel trailing mooring-ball on sturdy chain fell from sky 160 meters off villa beach(8' draft, sandy bottom; cf Google Earth: 20 45.648'N, 105 21.769'W)!
