"Our family of 4, 2 adults and two teeenagers, stayed at Tom and Elena's Punta Esmeralda condo in December 2014. Their condo is on the 3rd floor of the Huana bldg. Beautiful, unobstructed views of the Bay of Banderas. Punta Esmerlada is located in a gated community in between Bucerias and La Cruz, which is beatifully landscaped and well-maintained. There must be 8+pools throughout the complex for you to use. The villas are privately owned.
Our family didn't rent a car. Our mode of transportation was taxi, walking, or public transportation. The condo is roughly 30-35 minute walk to Bucerias or La Cruz on the beach. You may catch a taxi near the front gate to your destination or you can pick up public transportaion just outside the resort along the highway.
Plenty of great restaurants to eat dinner at in Bucerias, Nuevo Vallarta, or La Cruz. Working with Elana on the rental contract for our vacation was seamless and easy. We would recommend their place for a quiet, relaxing vacation. Thank you for allowing us to stay at your property. We had a fantastic vacation."

"We loved our 2 weeks at Casa Azueljos! It has a great sense of place - you really feel like you are in Mexico. The owner has decorated it so beautifully with great attention to detail. It is close to town and the beach, but it is tucked away so it is completely private. You feel like you are in the jungle surrounded by vegetation, birds, butterflies and the occasional iguana. We seemed to spend most of our time just hanging out on the patio - so pleasant and so very relaxing. It had everything we needed - including excellent WiFi and really good beds. We are looking forward to returning to this very special casita."

"What a great four weeks! From this beautifully furnished casa with tremendous golf and ocean views, we were able to entertain family members. The beach club was just minutes away by way of the golf cart and dining downtown was a 2 minute drive. The grounds were fantastic, and local wildlife was fun to watch from the pool: iguanas, fox, raccoon, Mexican version of lemur, and a wide variety of colorful birds. On the human side, we got to watch the President of Mexico playing golf. Overall fantastic casa in a fantastic setting. Recommend to all."

"Three members of our family just spent 6 days at Villa Lunada in Punta Mita from January 23 thru 28, 2015 for a business meeting and birthday celebration. Who could possibly have asked for a better location for this occasion? Punta Mita has everything that we could have ever asked for from an activity point of view, and Villa Lunada was just plain " Over The Top"!!!!!
Arrangements were made by the Villa concierge, Jerry, for us to be transported by private car from the airport in Puerto Vallarta to Villa Lunada. The trip took approximately 40 minutes, and we were welcomed at the Villa by the very professional and accommodating staff. Cooling towels followed by margaritas were served to us at the front entry as our eyes passed through the house over the edge less pool and on to the rolling surf of the Pacific. The Villa was furnished by its owners with the utmost care with pieces of art and furniture that was consistent with its location and history. Wait until you see the 3 main bedrooms and the views of the surfers and whales playing in the distance from your private balconies. There is a 4th bedroom in the lower level that can accommodate additional guests. Breakfast and lunches were served according to your desires by the cook and staff, and special dinners were made available upon request with a private chief for our group. What more could you ask for in a vacation hideaway?
I forgot to mention that some other business associates were staying in Sayulita, but portions of the group often came out to the Villa for surfing, cocktails and meals during the day. When not working, some of the group surfed and others played golf at the “Four Seasons”. We wanted to go fishing but just never found the time to fit that activity into our schedule. I guess it will have to wait until next time. We also dined at the “St Regis” and the “Four Seasons”.....but why use that option when you can have better vegetables and fresher sea food at Villa Lunada followed up with a relaxing Jacuzzi under the stars.
Be good to yourself and lease this wonderful property. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!!!!!!!
The owners of Villa Lunada happened to be in Punta Mita at the time of our stay and were gracious enough to stop in to make sure that our every need was being met. We all greatly appreciated their personal touch."
