Ranchos Estates house description
Possibly the most exclusive beachfront home in all of Mexico, Rancho 9 is a once-in-a-lifetime villa experience. This dramatic 8 bedroom, 8.5 bathroom, 25000 square foot Palapa-style home was designed by renowned Mexican architect Aldaco. This exquisite beachfront compound is located in a secure, gated community on a private, patrolled beach. The villa is fully staffed with a house manager, two private chefs, a butler and housekeeping. There is a pool and jacuzzi overlooking the stunning Bay of Banderas, as well as expansive grass areas surrounding the villa. Guests of the villa have full access to all of the amenities of the nearby Four Seasons and St Regis resorts of Punta Mita including two Jack Nicklaus signature golf courses, tennis courts and the exclusive Residents Beach Club.
Upon entering the compound you walk into a stunning open space great room with 180 degree ocean views. Friendly, attentive staff greet guests with fresh magaritas, and guests are invited to soak up the view across the Bay of Banderas. The residence is perched on a point with beaches to both sides and has the best views of any home in the entire area. From the very large palapa living room you step down to the deck, yard and infinity pool area where there are comfortable lounge chairs lined up overlooking the ocean and pool.This is the perfect place to lounge and let all of your stresses melt away.
There is a large media and game room that is enclosed for those who prefer to retreat inside, and multiple sitting areas around the compound. The media room is equipped with the latest home entertainment systems, so you won't miss important sports and other media while you are abroad. There are both inside and outside dining areas; the formal inside dining room seats sixteen.
The bedrooms are divided between two residences - the main residence, and a guest residence. In the main residence, there are two king sized master suites, each with huge marble bathrooms and enough closet space to stay for a year! Both master suites open to the ocean and have private exterior sitting areas. In addition, there are two more rooms with king beds. The guest residence features an additional four suites - two of the suites have two queen beds, and the other two are king suites. Each suite has ocean and garden views and a large private bath. Waking up in any of these suites is truly magical, with the sounds of the waves crashing on the shore and the native birds singing in the trees.
In the center of the compound, between the main residence and the guest residence, there is a yoga room which can also be used as a massage room.
The residence is fully staffed with butler, driver, chef, housekeeping staff as well as on-site concierge. There is a full time house manager on site to ensure that your arrangements are taken care of before you arrive and throughout your stay. The home has two private chefs - one specializing in authentic Mexican cuisine, and another five star trained trained European style chef. You can plan your menus in advance with our house manager.
Guests can enjoy a wonderful array of activities on the Punta Mita peninsula. Such activities include a day at the local farmers market's in Sayulita, a round of golf at one of two world renowned Jack Nicklaus signature golf courses, or an authentic meal on the Avenue Anclote or a whale watching tour.
This home is also the perfect location for a beachfront wedding or corporate retreat. The 'wow' factor of this villa must truly be be experienced to be understood.

Incredibly luxurious villa & impeccable service.Guest comment entered by manager
Incredibly luxurious villa & impeccable service.
I wanted to write a quick note to tell you what a terrific experience our YPO group had at Rancho 9. Simply put, the place was spectacular and exceeded all of our expectations. From the minute we arrived to be greeted by the staff handing out cold towels and margaritas we knew we had chosen the right place for our retreat. The location of the house right on a nice beach with good surf is really perfect. We also thought the whole Rancho development was very nice and secluded with good security. The house itself is beautiful and with 8 bedrooms all with good views it was ideal for our 11 person group. The outdoor living area with the big palapa roof was really good for hanging out with our large group and the pool and jacuzzi overlooking the ocean was spectacular. We also made good use of the large indoor living room for our group meetings. While the house, gardens and surrounding area were all beautiful it wouldn't have been such a good experience without the great service from the whole staff. The chef was really good and produced great meals throughout the trip….we gave him and his kitchen staff a standing ovation on our last night! The whole staff was friendly and attentive and did a great job throughout our stay. I want to give a special reference to Soi the house manager. She is terrific and a great asset to the house. She couldn't have been nicer and was always available to make arrangements for our group and even drove us herself to the local tennis club. She runs the house very efficiently and checked in frequently with all of us to make sure everything was going well. Please pass along to Soi the appreciation from our whole group. We loved the Punta Mita area and spent a lot of time at Punta Sayulita exploring the really nice town and great surf beach. We went to a fun surf contest and reggae concert there on our last night. All of us have been to many nice vacation spots and high end resorts but this was truly a unique experience for everyone. I can't think of anything that we didn't like about the whole stay at Rancho 9 and that is rare. I know that everyone from our group wants to come back there for another retreat or vacation with friends and family. Thanks for arranging our rental and we look forward to coming back to Rancho 9 again soon!
