About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

3 bedroom 3 bath , beachfront condo professionally managed by local property manager. New,contemporary Mexican style decoration, 4th floor, on the beach, a fabulous view of the ocean from almost every room! Relax on our private balcony with views of Banderas Bay to the beautiful Marietas Islands. Enjoy walking on the beach or just take a nap by the gorgoues infinity pool, the perfect getaway from a busy lifestyle. Terrific surfing with many breaks nearby.

We are 10 min walk from the restaurant area where you can find wonderful Mexican homemade cooking, seafood, cold beer and a lot of simple but great food. Delicious take-in food available from Naef Cuisine, and fresh bread available at a nearby Swiss-run bakery. The local harbor is convenient for taking a panga for a day on the water or for some world-class fishing, diving, or whale watching. Surfing is good either directly in front of the condo or a bit south along the beach (there are several surf shops in town if you need to buy or rent equipment). Away from the noise and bustle of Puerto Vallarta, our condo is still only a short cab or bus ride away, as is the lovely beach resort of Sayulita.

About Caren Edwards

I have been in love with sailing and the sea all my life. In 1999 my husband, two children and I embarked on a 5 year sailing voyage throughout the South Pacific. Returning to life on land was difficult, but finding our condo in Punta Mita has turned out to be the perfect antidote. We love the convenience of flying in from California, arriving at our beautiful beachfront condo, knowing that we can be as lazy or active as we like. I know you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Caren Edwards purchased this condo in 2006

Why Caren Edwards chose Emiliano Zapata

We chose Punta Mita because it is just the right size: just big enough to have all the amenities (restaurants, shopping, etc.) within walking distance, yet small enough to avoid the crowds and noise of a larger resort. We love the fishing village next door - it's the real deal. And our children love the surfing (so many spots close by, including the beach we face).

What makes this condo unique

I like the convenience of walking over to our 80' swimming pool to get in a few laps in the morning (I'm usually the only one in the pool), followed by a soak in the hot tub. Because we are located off the main highway from the Puerto Vallarta International Airport, it is nice to be able to grab a cab at the airport, stop off at the Mexican equivalent of Costco to stock up on food, and get delivered to our door. We also love the local restaurants, especially the seafood dishes.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Absolutely fabulous beachfront condo . . . quiet area . . . very nice facility - modern and clesn - bring beach chairs or just hang at the pool - we loved it!! Will definately be back!!!!!!!

Gorgeous property on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful condo with a great view of the beach, perfect location. As a frequent traveller to Punta Mita, this was definitely one of my favorite condos. Caren and Alejandra were great hosts and addressed questions/concerns very quickly. Would definitely recommend and will be returning.

Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

This place is awesome. Large, newer condo overlooking endless pool and beach. The Condo was in excellent condition and actually had an elevator that opened to the living room. The town is small and everyone was friendly. We rented surf and paddleboards every day and paid a local to boat us down to a local surf break. I would highly recommend it and would go back in a heart beat.

Beautiful , clean , comfortable , roomy, well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

The location can't be beat . Best swimming beach on the entire coastline right out front. Fabulous view off of the expansive balcony . Refreshing infinity pool and Hot tub. A market less than 1/2 block away . Ropi's restaurant right across the street. Easy access to town and other restaurants on foot . We had friends stop by who were staying in Nuevo Vallarta and they were blown away at how nice this place is . A winner all the way around. Great support from Alejandra and her team .

Perfect location for surfing adventures and fantastic food

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Punta de Mita. It was also our first time in the Puerto Vallarta area. From the moment that you leave the terminal at the airport everything is a cacophony of color, sound and movement. Driving north to Punta de Mita was an adventure and not for the timid driver. On a recommendation from the team representing this property we stopped at Mega Market in Bucerias and stocked up with supplies. Mega Market is awesome. Amazing pastries. Lots of locally grown fruit. Amazing salsas and warm tortillas. The prices are great. Don't forget to tip the ladies who bag your groceries.

Arriving in Punta de Mita you will notice that the town is sleepy and sort of run down. However, within a day you will be captured by the charm, the friendly people and the fantastic food. Try Naef Cafe for breakfast or pastries to go. Tacos Y Papas for amazing tacos and tostaditas. Casa Del Pastor for either breakfast or dinner is great and right across the street from the condo.

The condo itself is fantastic. I have never woken up to a better view. The Bay of Banderas lies before you with its calm waters and sandy beach. We didn't want to leave. The condo has everything that you need. We rented surfboards from a local with a stand on the beach and spent every evening surfing or stand-up padding until sunset at the reef break in front of the condo. We also visited a ranch (Painted Ponies in Higuera Blanca) and my wife fulfilled her dream of galloping a horse along a deserted beach.

We cannot wait to go back.

PS - We took a lot of photos and videos while we were there and they can be found on Instagram under these two accounts: grant_gochujang daynawithoutrules

Great family vacation!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was clean and pleasant. The property manager was quick and responsive and easily arranged a driver from and to the airport including a stop at the grocery store and lunch in Puerto Vallarta on the way to the airport home. Easy walk into town with lots of restaurants. Good beach. Loved the pizza place across the street.

Beautiful Condo and Memorable Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We invited our son and his girlfriend to spend a few days with us on vacation. We spent weeks going through all the various condo offerings in Punta Mita, and eventually selected this property. We made an excellent choice. The condo is exactly as pictured in VRBO, the views from the huge balcony are amazing, and the beach was literally a step away from the pool area. We could not have been more pleased. The pool and ocean were so warm, it was like sitting in the bath at home. There are numerous little "tienditas" (mini-stores) for all your needs within a couple short blocks. Even a "tortilla" stand a couple short blocks away. The town was a short 5 minute walk from the unit, although we ended up eating most meals in the condo. You can't go wrong with this unit. Thanks to the Edwards for making this a great and memorable stay.
