About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 4/5) on the beach

This gorgeous second floor condominium sits directly on and facing the ocean on the north shore of Banderas Bay in Punta de Mita. The only thing between you and the beach is the infinity pool. The views are spectacular and unimpeded. In the event that the stunning sunrises, sunsets, and views from the 47 foot-long terrace are too much for you, the residence features full amenities including satellite TV/XM stereo, wireless internet, and a video library. You will find a wonderfully furnished kitchen to prepare your favorite beverage, snack, or gourmet meal, or numerous restaurants within a few minutes walk if you don't want to cook at all. The unit is tastefully decorated and includes granite, stone, and marble in the dining area, kitchen, and baths, Mexican tile floors throughout, and elevator service direct to the unit.

The unit's large private terrace is a terrific place to dine, read, relax, nap, or entertain. The common outdoor patio area includes the 80-foot infinity pool, hot tub, barbecue, outdoor kitchen and shade palapas, and pool furniture.

The views from the master suite and living room are endless Pacific ocean expanses and include the Marietas Islands and across the bay to Puerto Vallarta and Yelapa.

Each bedroom has a deluxe King bed and private bathroom with large walk-in showers and tons of storage. The master bath also has a large soaking tub. The condominium is approximately 2300 square feet in size. There are only 18 condos in the building assuring you both peace and privacy for a restful, relaxing stay.

Additional 3-bedroom and one-bedroom units may also be available upon request to accomodate larger families and groups.

About Suzanne and Rick

We love the outdoors -- sailing, swimming, diving, snorkeling, skiing, surfing, whale watching, fishing, walking on the beach, spectacular sunrises, incredible sunsets, working hard, playing hard, and just plain relaxing.

Suzanne and Rick purchased this condo in 2006

Why Suzanne and Rick chose Punta de Mita (Punta Mita)

Our travels and adventures brought us to Punta de Mita -- unspoiled and uncrowded, peaceful and safe. Purchasing a property right on the beach was a dream we had talked about for years, and this place is perfect. Our building has only 18 units so it retains its peaceful qualities, unlike the typical resort condos. Travel to and from Punta de Mita is easy from just about anywhere in the US, Canada, and Mexico.

What makes this condo unique

The beach is literally just a few steps away. You can walk for miles along the beach at low tide. The panga harbor is a short walk away, you can hire a boat for diving, fishing, snorkeling, whale watching, or tours of the Mariettas Islands, just a few miles offshore (and part of our incredible view). There are a dozen or more restaurants along the beach -- everything from local fares to five-star, all within a 5 - 10 minute stroll from the property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are so pleased with everything here. The pool is perfect, and we find ourselves spending most of our time there, reading and relaxing... it's hard to imagine a better break from the "real world".

Perfect for our Family!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Suzanne and Rick's condo over spring break April 15- 22nd 2017. We loved their condo. It was larger than how it appeared online, very bright, great balcony, rooms were perfect for us- we have 2 teenage boys so having a king bed in each room worked out great. The condo was clean, had nice linens, beach towels, 2 beach chairs and everything we needed in the kitchen. We had their condo manager stock our fridge with breakfast and lunch items so we didn't have to stop at the Mega- which is not my favorite thing to do on vacation. There is a small store in the town of Punta Mita that had everything we needed to re-stock during the week. Their condo unit is in a building right on the best surf break in Punta Mita which was perfect for our kids. When we arrived the beach was packed because it was Easter weekend but the crowd thinned out by Monday. Suzanne has a yoga mat and small weights that I used to do my yoga and workout routine on the balcony each morning which was perfect. We went to sleep every night with the sound of the waves crashing on the beach. We could walk to town for dinner, the restaurant across the street was great for breakfast and on our last night we had dinner there and the food was very good and they had an older gentleman playing guitar and singing and he was wonderful! We will definitely come back. Thank you to Suzanne and Rick!!

Right on the beach, spacious, well maintained condo

  • 5 of 5

Suzanne, the owner, was an absolute delight to work with, responsive to every question promptly and had an onsite representative available to provide any help we needed (not that we needed any). The property is very well located, right on the beach and just a few minutes from all the restaurants. Although the condo project itself is on the small side and doesn't have a restaurant, there is a restaurant right across the street that serves breakfast, lunch & dinner. The unit is nicely decorated, very spacious with a great layout. It is equipped with everything you need, including a couple of beach chairs and satellite TV. There's a warm, homey feeling to it. It was nice to stay in a smaller project where you didn't fight for pool chairs and could swim laps with no one else in the pool, although we were mostly at the beach, a quiet swimmable beach. We were sad to leave! Larry U and Valerie C

heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

I want to thank Suzanne for many things that made our stay so enjoyable. I was amazed at how response she was from my first email inquiring about Punta de Mita, to how to get satellite dish to work when we arrived. The instructions on how to use everything in the condo to restaurants to go to was impeccable. I loved looking out at sunrise from the balcony listening to waves as they were hitting the shore. We have stayed in many places throughout the world and this was our favorite. Thank You!

Great condo, beautiful condo, near awesome beaches

  • 4 of 5

Condo was great for our family of four. The doors open completely to balcony which was awesome. You feel like you are in Mexico in this little town. We ate on Restaurant Row once, which was delicious, across the street once which was also delicious (and great margaritas!) My husband went out every morning and bought fresh eggs and warm tortillas and we had breakfast in. Ate at Norma's which is basically in someone's house twice. Best meal there! Highly recommend it all. This is not and "all in one" sort of place so get out in the town and ask directions. They are kind enough to walk you to where you need to go.

Great condo, highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

The Condo was above expectations. Everything we needed was available. You can't beat the view and we spent a lot of time on the balcony. The condo is a short walk from restaurant row which has its pluses and minuses. It was nice to be a short way from the hustle and bustle of the main drag. If you want relaxation this is the place to be. Hope to come back soon!

Playa de Mita, you're on it!
Car: not necessary

Everything you need for a relaxing vacation can be found here. The villages of Emiliano Zapata and El Corral del Risco are within a few minutes stroll from the condo. Whale watching from the terrace -- or up close by boat -- is a special treat November through March as the Bay of Banderas is their winter home. The nearby Mariettas Islands are a designated marine sanctuary, beatiful for diving, snorkeling, birdwatching (the blue footed booby lives there), or a scenic boat ride.

Surfing is just steps away if the waves are right, and there are multiple surf breaks within a short distance of the condo. SUP's are a daily favorite at the break just adjacent to the condo.

If you're into fishing you can fish from the beach, the jetty, or by boat. The fleet of pangas is just a two minute walk down the beach.

Just about any activity you can think of can be had close by: golf, horseback riding, eco tours, diving/snorkeling, whale watching (seasonal), surfing, kayaking, swimming, shelling, fishing, shopping, etc. Let us know your interests and we can get you touch with local activities. Just want a night out without the kids? Babysitting can be arranged with advance notice.

There are a dozen restaurants within walking distance, many of them are beachfront. Muy romantico! If you prefer to cook and dine-in the condo kitchen is fully furnished with all the tools you need to prepare your special meals -- and the view from the terrace is hard to beat -- especially the sunrises and sunsets!
