Punta Mita Condo Right on the Beach! Great Surfing, Safe Place

Bedrooms 1
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

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 communiy 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.

A view to die for ... and surfing with all the perks

  • 5 of 5

So ... there's the view from your typical beach front ... and then there's view from this unit. It's a photographer or painters dream in 3D color.

Whether it's the full moon rising over the distant lights of Puerto Vallarta, or the sunset lighting your evening swim in crimson. Or the occasional red gold evening light contrasting with the myriad deep blues of the storm across the bay. Need I go on? How about the rainbow which waved us a farewell on our last day?

Then there's the surfing. No sharks, no jellyfish, no rip tide or sideways tide. Even on the 'flat' days there are waves somewhere.

Then there's the people and the area... and believe it or not, this may be the best of all. Friendly, glad to help you learn your Spanish. Food and sundry prices are in general quite low compared to where I'm from (Baltimore/Washington corridor).

Now the bad - surfing: beware the occasional rock/coral/sea urchin when you step down. My son tore up both feet pretty bad. But, hey, the doctor in the clinic in town was friendly, professional, and surprisingly inexpensive.

Driving: we were stopped for a bogus infraction by a local policeman looking for a bribe. We, er, didn't give it to him.

ATMS: They mostly only take cash in this town, so bring alot or be ready to use the ATMs. But don't use the ones on the unguarded street - our card was hacked last year from one of them.

Perfect condo in Punta Mita

  • 5 of 5

The location of this condo is fantastic; just a short walk along the beach to all the shops and restaurants. Easy & safe parking across the street. Infinity pool overlooking the beach is AMAZING. Air conditioned, and well-stocked with supplies.

Perfect location and very comfortable place!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED our stay here! Already talking about coming back. The unit is locate on the 5th floor, which is perfect for watching the ocean life. 2 elevators make the trip to and from the unit a little easier at times. The condo came with everything we needed for cooking, beach towels, etc. Nice and clean, but not too fancy. Just our style..Didn't think we were going to use the infinity pool, but it was so inviting....we used it multiple times every day! The hot tub was a nice plus too. The bird life here is amazing and mesmerizing! I think we will miss swimming with the pelicans the most! Easy walk on the beach to all of the great restaurants. Only about 20 minutes to busier Salylita and about 40 min to Puerto Villarta. Highly recommended for good food and a lot of R & R!

Great place in Mita.

  • 4 of 5

Condo provided comfort and great view. Left balcony doors open most of the time because of great breeze. If you wanted quiet and relaxation, we did, this was the place to be. Only complaint would be lack of hot water in shower even with faucet running in sink. Otherwise all was well and we enjoyed our stay. I would suggest a quick followup call from Leddy on how things were going the day after arrival.
