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.

Keywords: surfing, board rentals, free coffee to your room, breakfast and dinner prepared if desired

Would stay here again. Great place

  • 5 of 5

From the time we arrived the stay was great. Close to he beach and lots of beach toys for us to use. It's a short walk into town and the grocery store too. Coffee every morning was delivered to your door with cream and sugar. Thanks Lisa for the great time we will be back.

Amazing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Villas Las Ollas. It was very relaxing and Lisa & David were exceptional hosts. They went over and beyond, making us feel like part of the family during our stay. Their 5 dogs are the sweetest ever! We would definitely like to return someday.

Great Stay, Feels Like Home!

  • 5 of 5

Very large 1 bedroom, feels like a little house. Coffee was brought out every morning, variety of surfboards to choose from downstairs, and great location! Fraction of a cost of renting a condo in town which isn't a far walk from here. Would highly recommend!

spacious, relaxing home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in April. Lisa and Dave made us feel at home by inviting us out to Dave's show at a local bar, lending us beach umbrellas, renting us surf boards and giving us recommendations about local food. We shopped for groceries near by and made delicious breakfasts and dinners in our spacious well equipped kitchen. The dogs, specifically Biggie and Pipster, helped us not miss our dog too much. They were always there to greet us or accompany us on a walk to the beach. We would definitely stay here again!

Punta de Mita stole my heart!

  • 5 of 5

David & Lisa were wonderful hosts during our stay in Punta de Mita. My husband and I took a short spring break, looking for surf, sun and a low key getaway. We found that and more in the little town of Punta Mita. Great taco stands, the best pizza at Casa del Pintor, warm ocean water, and a comfortable property to call home for a week. We look forward to bringing our entire family back soon!

Great alternative to the high cost newer options.

Big apartment. Clean. Close to everything. Personable hosts. Patio morning coffee and reasonably priced breakfasts big pluses for us. We would definitely stay there again.
