Punta Mita Penthouse, Truly Right on the Beach! Amazing Views

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Spectacular Punta Mita, located just two-and-a-half hours from Los Angeles, three hours from San Francisco, five hours from Chicago and New York, and just 30 minutes on the new four-lane highway from the Puerto Vallarta airport, is home to the massive Four Seasons gated master community that also includes facilities by Starwood and St. Regis, two waterfront golf courses by Jack Nicklaus, and multimillion dollar villas. Surrounded on three sides by the Four Seasons and a fourth by the tranquil waters of Banderas Bay is the village of El Anclote, which features several excellent restaurants, and the sleepy village of Punta de Mita, which is home to our Cielo y Mar units in a lovely, 18-unit Condo complex.

How popular is the Punta Mita area? Despite rooms that average $1500/night, the Four Season sells out 11 months a year, and villas in the area go for up to $10,000/night. Punta Mita is particularly popular with American celebrities and politicians looking to vacation in privacy. And now that Puerto Vallarta traffic has exploded, many long time vacationers there have moved to the much more peaceful Punta Mita.


The seven-story, complex, completed in December of 2006, is right on the beach, and the terraces look directly down on the 80 foot long infinity pool and the beautiful blue tropical waters of Banderas Bay. During the winter, whales are a daily sight, and in the summer dorado can be seen cornering bait fish near the shore. The southern exposure means unparalleled views of the sun from dawn to dusk, as well as the sailboats, and the picturesque four-mile distant Tres Marietas Island natural reserve.


At high tide, the Cielo y Mar units are separated by nothing more than the unit’s gorgeous infinity pool! No matter if you are looking from inside the units or out on the terrace, all you see is the pool, the sea, and the sky! Nobody is closer to the water than us! With great surfing - there are more surf spots within one mile of our place than anywhere in Mexico, and they range in skill from absolute beginner to expert, restaurants-just a five minute walk away, swimming, beach walking, snorkeling, fishing, nature watching, and great sunsets, there is no reason to choose any other Condo.

Punta Mita Penthouse, Truly Right on the Beach! Amazing Views
average rating of 4.9583335 based on 24 reviews

A stunning location right on the beach in the sleepy, beachside town of Punta Mita.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean and comfortable with incredible ocean views from every corner. The second floor bedroom is a spacious master oasis and we ate breakfast every morning on the deck, with the sound of the waves. The condo was well outfitted with everything you need, including extras like beach towels and boogie boards. The on-site property manager was very helpful for everything we needed and welcomed us after a long travel day from the U.S. We will be back!

Top shelf.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful weather, accommodations, and people. Went fishing, island tour, golfing, and ate out. Slept like a lamb in quiet comfort after swimming in pool and ocean daily. Beautiful view of Banderas Bay. Haven't been that relaxed in years ( at least until my NCAA basketball picks started losing). Who cares, anyway? Thanks, Donna for the best vacation I have ever had. Wilsons from Minnesota just past the Canadian border.

Lovely property on the beach in Punta Mita

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice property with a terrific location. The set-up is really nice with the pool right next to the beach. If you want to sit under the shade at the pool you can watch the rest of your party if they are playing on the beach. Two minutes walk down the beach you can rent surf boards and paddle boards. We took a long paddle board all the way up to the point, but go in the early morning or late in the day when the wind dies down. The beach is quiet and not crowded, which is nice.

It is five minutes walk into Punta Mita village where there are lots of good restaurants. We particularly liked Si Señor, Serendipity and Blue Shrimp. Donna and Richard provide boogie boards, which the kids have fun with. There were wonderful hosts and very accommodating. There is a small shop in Punta Mita near La Teresa, but you should shop at Mega beforehand if you really feel like you need a lot of groceries. We did buy our vegetables from the crazy grocery pickup truck, which was fun and easy. Make sure your bring your own soap, laundry detergent and shampoo as those are not provided.

In our view, the biggest advantage of the site was the close location of most things you would want. You can walk to a surf shop and get lessons, to the various fishing expedition shops and to the adventure shops that take you to the islands. For city dwellers that hate to drive it is just perfect. We didn't rent a car. However, the taxi service is a racket. $70 out and $100 back for a 45 minute drive in Mexico. Definitely some collusion going on there between the drivers.

Overall, a very enjoyable trip.

Fabulous Room with a View

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! We brought our kids ages 16 and 23 and they agree. The pool and beach are out of this world! The condo itself is stunning. Our only regret is not getting a golf cart to travel around and listening to Donna and Letty about stopping at the Mega before arriving. We are now in a beachfront in Sayulita and all the kids talk about is how nice Punta de Mita was.

We will most definitely return!
