"Our vacation in Punta Mita was truly amazing! This condo is beautiful and luxurious, with every comfort and convenience you could hope for. The owner thought of everything that could make a guest's stay complete, and we discovered thoughtful extra touches throughout the condo. The decor is elegant yet also very comfortable - we felt relaxed and at home immediately. The moment we stepped inside, we were drawn to the full walls of windows and the spectacular views of the ocean, bay, mountains, and lush gardens. We loved that the floor to ceiling windows can be completely opened - they seem to disappear as they slide entirely behind beautiful, cleverly designed wooden panels - seamlessly merging the inside and outside. The condo is very spacious with a large living/dining room and expansive terraces, and the layout ensures privacy for everyone. Our sons each had their own bedroom, bathroom, and terrace, giving them personal space. The master bedroom is on a corner, with a private terrace wrapped around both sides and windows that can be slid completely open, making you feel like you’re outdoors. There are also plantation shutters with built-in screens, allowing for fresh air at night without leaving the windows entirely open. The kitchen is huge and fully appointed with high-end appliances, dishes, glassware, pots and pans, and cooking utensils - plus there’s a great grill on the terrace. We enjoyed cooking breakfasts and dinners, and eating at the dining table and on the terrace. We probably would have been content not setting foot outside of the condo – but there's SO much more to partake of in Punta Mita! The property is gorgeous, flawlessly maintained, and quite large (we were glad to have a rental car, one of the owner’s many thoughtful suggestions.) The Residents' Beach Club was our favorite place - a perfect beach, pool, and terrific restaurant and bar area, with friendly and attentive staff. We also enjoyed the St. Regis beach, pools, dining, and spa. There are so many outstanding restaurants, both on the Punta Mita property and in the adjacent town, that you'd need several weeks to sample them all. Our favorites were Sufi (close to the condo) and Aramara (at the Four Seasons), plus Tuna Blanca and Si Senor in the town – all had excellent food, great staff, and beautiful settings and ambiance. Our stay in this spectacular El Encanto penthouse in Punta Mita was an unforgettable vacation experience for our family, and we highly recommend it!!"
