About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Our rates are the best in Punta Mita! Take the time to compare and you will agree. Your hosts Dave and Lisa will help you enjoy Mexico just the way you'd like. We're not a cookie cutter condo. Here you'll find our fresh and clean unit done in modern Mexican decor, two bedroom, with full kitchen. Hear the waves all night long!

We're located one 1/2 block from the beautiful white sand of Playa Punta Mita. This spot provides world class surfing for all levels, beginners to professionals. Choose from our collection of 25 high quality surfboards; find just the right one for you. Either take off down the beach on your own, or enjoy David's specially guided surf package, which includes his invaluable local knowledge, transportation, lessons, board rental, & lots of Aloha.

We're a great spot for young and old, families, singles, just about everyone. We're kid & pet friendly. Enjoy the privacy of your suite or join us for dinner. .

Don't dare miss joining one of Lisa's famous Mexican dinners. She is an incredible cook and her meals are a gourmet delight. David is a talented professional musician, all of which makes for some truly unforgettable evenings.

Banderas Bay is genuinely spectacular. Maybe you just want to relax, enjoy the simple life. That works pretty well around here. Muy Tranquilo! Perhaps take a stroll down the beach, you can even hike several kilometers if you wish. (check out our link below to the beach walk slide show)

In winter months, the tropical blue water offers daily sightings of whales courting and calving. Spectaculoso! Watch pelicans diving, local marineros plying the reef, sailing yachts tacking into the anchorage. It’s common to see dolphins, turtles, and even giant manta rays in the sea nearby. Take a sail to snorkel in the nearby Marietta Islands, do some Stand Up Paddle (SUP), play golf nearby or go fishing.

Did we mention fishing? Its Incre-ible! This area is home to trophy-size black, blue, and striped marlin, yellow-fin tuna, sailfish, dorado (mahi mahi), rooster fish, and more. Local charters are available and easily arranged.

Best of all, Lisa's always there for you. Hot, fresh brewed local coffee often shows up magically in the morning at your door, even if you're going fishing at 4am. Of course, she can then prepare your catch any way you like when you return. It just doesn't get any better.

Children? We like 'em and are ready for yours. We have youth books, toy trucks, inflatables, snorkeling gear, boogie boards, and unbreakable dinnerware. The ocean here stays shallow with a sandy bottom, perfect for swimming and kids' play, and the bigger waves usually break about 100 yards out. Don't miss the sunset release of hundreds of baby sea turtles at the Nuevo Vallarta Sea Turtle Preserve.

Its very safe here in Punta Mita. 'Restaurant Row' is just five minutes down the beach, including classic Mexican palapa cuisine, Italian, plus a number of upscale, top end restaurants, even a couple of bluesy nightspots. A small Mexican grocery store nearby offers everything from tequila to local yogurt.

All The room has high speed internet, satellite TV, and unlimited bottles of purified water. Watch our DVDs or bring your own, and calls are free to the US & Canada. Breakfast room service and laundry services are available.

We invite you you visit us and enjoy paradise. Our house is your house. Owners David Walsh and Lisa Bombard are dedicated to providing an affordable, yet memorable vacation. Give us a call.

Completely amazing

  • 5 of 5

The property has everything you could possibly need, the daily morning coffee is great to sip on while watching the sun rise from the balcony. Lisa and David were helpful with ideas for sights to visit and places to eat. The dogs are great and friendly, all 6 of them, I loved seeing them in the morning on the chaise lounge on the patio. There's plenty of privacy, parking and security on the property while the hotel/ restaurant area is within walking distance.

If you want to go to the island of Marietta's book with Tranquilo surf adventures, Susana is amazing and the private trip gives you more to see than going on a large catamaran with alot of people. If you want a massage go see Rocio (her shop is next to Tranquilo surf adventures) she does an amazing job of getting all those knots out. If you go to Sayulitas El castaño restaurant is great and you can rent seating for the day from Marcos right on the beach without any worries about your belongings. There's a board hut right next to the restaurant where you can rent boards as well. All reasonably priced.

I hope this helped and hope you have a great stay!!!

Fantastic location and great hosts

  • 5 of 5

A football field away from the beach, and a very big place with 2 rooms. Coffee in the morning and fresh towels and linens make this cozy little condo a winner.

Perfect for families and surfers, spacious and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Me and my teenage daughters came during the off season (August) and were happy to find that villas olas was all the reviews had said it was! Lisa was down to earth, friendly and very helpful. Our place had more than enough room. Lisa had just about everything you needed for the beach so I'd recommend checking in with her before overfilling your suitcases. I was sad to learn that her partner does not stay there from June - August, but Lisa provided plenty of surf information. As expected, the surf was not too great due to the time of the year, but I still managed to catch a few waves in warm beautiful waters. We got an exciting taste of thunder and lightening while we were there, which was just enough to enjoy as it lit up the sky at night, but did not in any way spoil our time there. Fresh, delicious coffee every morning. A complete kitchen if you do plan on budgeting and staying in. A small market within walking distance. The beach within walking distance in a much less populated, beautiful area of punta de mita! A beautiful restaurant blocks away and shopping stores plus more restaurants a couple blocks past that. A nice homely feel. I highly recommend villas olas and will be back if I can!

Great hosts. Felt like home.

  • 5 of 5

Lisa and David are great hosts. We felt welcome, comfortable and very safe during our stay. I was shocked how much bigger our unit was. We felt very relaxed and at home.

We'll be back!!

The BEST!!

  • 5 of 5

Lisa and Dave are truly awesome. I will definitely go back. I didn't want to leave!!!

It is all true....

Hot coffee at my doorstep every morning. Unlimited purified water, Lisa does make incredible food! Surfing with Dave was super fun. All the places in town they recommended were fantastic!

The place was roomy, clean and relaxed. Just the right amount of hospitality without feeling like you didn't have any privacy. AND the dogs are great!!!!

I really don't know why you would stay anywhere else.
