'Immaculate views, quiet beach with easy surf, gorgeous pool, awe'
Larry's place is fantastic. He has sliding glass doors that line the entire balcony so you can open up almost the entire front of the condo to the beauty of Banderas Bay. Loved every minute we were there. The condo and the building are exceptionally well taken care of. Fantastic, well-stocked kitchen with huge countertops for making all manner of cocktails and guacamole! Larry has gone to considerable efforts to stock the condo with not only the essentials but also things like free Skype phone, free local phone, board games, body board, beach towels, blender, movies and music galore, really I can't think of anything we didn't have. The pool is stunning, almost 25m long with an infinity edge, a shallow section and a hot tub. I swim train and the length was amazing for me, not to mention it was great for my 7 month old son to play on the shallow shelf. Stored my paddle board outside my condo (but inside the fully gated building) and had no problems at all. Surf was easy and consistent. Careful getting close to the rock jetty as there are some rocks on the ocean bottom. I just wore my Keen's and had no problem after that. Restaurants are only a 2-3 minute walk, lots of little grocery stores with basics nearby, barely any crappy souvenir stores which was great, not a lot of annoying tourists - it's quiet in Punta de Mita, some great authenticity in the Emiliano Zapata village down road too. My only wish is that we could afford a condo like this one someday. I'd be happy retiring in a place like this. Awesome.

We spent Christmas week at this beautiful condo and enjoyed every sunrise, sunset and moment in-between. I've been to Punta Mita on several occasions, stayed in various areas of town, and know it doesn't get any better than Larry and Marcia's unit. It's clean, modern, ideally located and has the most beautiful infinity pool and hot tub directly overlooking the ocean and soft sand beach. Rest assured that if you book this condo, you won't be disappointed!

'Perfect for us' My wife and I needed a quiet week in a lovely place, this was it. The unit is very attractive, beautiful beach location, lovely pool,area, excellent well stocked kitchen, and owner Larry was helpful in every way. Area restaurants are at least as good as any we.'ve found elsewhere in MX, a side trip to Sayulita was fun, also made us happy we were staying in quiet Punta Mita. We hope to return soon.

'Precioso, cómodo y muy limpio' Tuve el gusto de estar en este departamento en la semana del 5 al 9 de agosto de 2013 y han sido por mucho mis mejores vacaciones. El departamento es muy amplio, completamente limpio, equipado, tiene la mejor playa y la alberca es muy grande, así que mis hijos se dieron gusto jugando y nadando. La cocina tiene todo para hacer uso de ella. La gente que vive ahí fue muy cordial y el Sr. Larry Palmer siempre estuvo al pendiente de mis dudas. Estoy segura de que volveré!

'Amazing Customer Service!!' I have to start by saying we were unable to go to Punta de Mita because our travel plans were the exact dates of Hurricane Jova, we had to change destinations. However Larry the owner has been amazing through our whole experience. He has always responded back to any and all of my questions immediately. He went out of his way to go to the local surf shops and inquire on rental prices etc. And when we had to cancel our trip he was more than understanding. He not only refunded 100% of our money, he did it immediately. I am back in the states where all is calm he took out time from preparing for a major huricane to transfer the money back to my paypal account. I not only did not expect a full refund, it was instant. We thought about changing to the following week and Larry was completely honest and said it might be better to go somewhere else, as it looks like the hurricane will hammer the area. He put himself aside and us first. If and when we ever make it to Punta de Mita with no question I will be staying at larrys condo. I cant thank him enough!!

Located on the beach in the village of Emiliano Zepata, we are next to the Punta Mita development which includes The Four Seasons and St. Regis resorts, and a Jack Nicholson designed 18 hole golf course. Two blocks from 'Restaurant Row', and located in a small village, our guests enjoy the feeling of rural village life, while having amenities only found in global resort areas.
Enjoy surfing, horseback riding, deep sea fishing, whale watching, golfing, walk for miles on the beach, of just hang around our 'super sized pool'. Later in the day, enjoy gourmet meals or local dishes at one of the many restaurants in the area.
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: I would like to introduce ourselves to you. My name is Larry, and my wife is Marcia. We have been owners in Punta de Mita for more than 20 years now. We own a lot in the village of Emiliano Zepata, where we have decided to purchase this condominium. When we moved to this area, we loved the small village atmosphere, the simple pace of life, the smiling faces of the local people, and the beautiful beaches within walking distance. As time has marched on, the village has grown, the people are still beautiful, but the beach has become less accessible. We decided to stop fighting the development and purchase our piece of beach frontage. We want to share it with you! This condominium is located in a beautiful project which was completed in October of 2006. It has seven floors of beachfront units. Ours is located on the 3rd floor above pool level, which is also street level when arriving (either by car or taxi). So, we can walk out the front gate and still enjoy the village life we love so much, but we can also take the elevator (or the stairs) down two floors and enjoy the beach front, 80 foot long pool, or go though the secure gates leading to the beach itself.
Why the Owner Chose Emiliano Zapata: We welcome you to our new rental condominium in beautiful Punta de Mita, Mexico. As I sit here and write this, I think back on my experiences finding a rental in a vacation area.
What was I looking for? What made me want to respond ? Why did the site attract me? My answers had to do with the presentation (i.e. Price, feeling of trust, availability of an actual response, and other intangibles??) , and, finally, a feeling that I was dealing with someone I could relate to, which made the statements on the site more believable.
Most sites I visited tended to follow nearly the same script, and I found I wanted more personal contact, since I was going to be staying in a rental which often was a person's private living area when not rented. Well, this is my attempt to fulfil those desires.
