Or get away from the action and head upstairs to the large private Master Suite sun deck, overlooking the pool and garden. It's a perfect location for enjoying endless hours of sunshine, beautiful sunsets and Saturday night fireworks on the Bay of Banderas.

If you are looking for privacy and relaxation combined with fine dining, shopping, golf, sailing, nightlife, beautiful beaches, or just a bar-b-que by the pool... Let CASA TERRAZAS be your home away from home this season.

About Kimmi Edwards

We travel to resort destinations often, and wanted to create a similar feeling with our home in Mexico. Furnishings and decor are continuously updated so that your (and our) stay is comfortable and hassle free.

We love to hear from our guests, so any requests or suggestions you may have would be greatly appreciated!

Kimmi Edwards purchased this house in 2006

Why Kimmi Edwards chose La Puntilla

La Puntilla is a very unique, small, gated and maintained community with a focus on security. No two homes are the same floor plan, and each of the 19 homes has a private pool with shared beach and common areas.

Location, quality, and comfort are key. The location allows for fine dining, convenient shopping, the beach, fishing, and sailing. Trade winds are constant, and the temperature November thru April is around 84 degrees, with little to no rain.

What makes this house unique

In order to maximize views, the oceanfront homes are zero lot line (connected to their neighbors on both sides) and are limited to a single story. While the ocean view homes are stand alone, two stories, with generally larger lots, and no beach traffic.

Our home, pool, and garden are immaculately kept and maintained year round. And our Property Manager is exceptional, should any issues arrise.

Nice vacation tainted by experience at the end.

  • 3 of 5

The villa was very comfortable for 6 adults for 4 weeks. The best feature was the private pool which we enjoyed every day. We appreciated having Canadian satellite channels as we could watch the winter Olympics and slip into the pool between periods of the hockey games. It was very quiet up until the last weekend when a family with 4 children arrived next door. We assumed they were the owners. They were not abusive or offensive in any way, just extremely noisy all day around the pool. We were fortunate that they were only there for a few days of our stay, as we would not have appreciated that constant noise for a longer period (reminded us of an all inclusive resort). The kitchen definitely needs updating as very few things are "top of the line". The main issue is the older gas stove/oven. Some of the stove elements have to be lit with a match or lighter and the oven burner also has to be lit this way. There were no instructions about this and one of our group severely burned his hand lighting the oven with the tiny lighter we found. The outside BBQ has also seen better days. We suggest you bring a proper BBQ style lighter with you if you intend to use the stove/oven or BBQ. Even with the above issues we still thoroughly enjoyed our stay, up until we were told that our damage deposit would not be returned. We were falsely accused of damaging a mattress and mattress cover. Details of the alleged damage and cost to clean, etc. were not given to us. We were also falsely accused of having 2 extra guests for a longer period than we were given permission for. This is a ludicrous accusation and again, no details about how this allegation was supported were given to us. As we were there for 4 weeks, there was ample opportunity for the on site manager to pay us a visit to discuss these things before we left. We only saw her the day after we arrived. I guess you learn from experience.

Owner's Response: Richard, We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your overall stay at our home in La Puntilla. The private pool is one of our favorite features as well. Having American/Canadian satellite TV is also a plus. It is unfortunate that our entire home did not live up to your expectations. Thank you for your insight on our grill, as we appreciate all guest feedback. Living so closely to the beach, the salt air, and heavy use really takes a toll on stainless steel. We'll be purchasing a new patio grill on our next visit. Kind regards, Owners Casa Terrazas

Perfect Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was my first girls trip away from my one year old and it couldn't have been more perfect. We layed out by the sparkling pool every day with cocktails. The bed was super comfy to get lots of hours of uninterrupted sleep. There is easy access to the beach to go for a morning run or walk. Whether you want to take a scenic drive to fine dining or walk over to the yacht club for a wonderful brunch, great food is everywhere! Can't wait to go back.

We will definitely stay here again! Our daily walks on the beach to Bucerias and the yacht club were needed after eating at all the great restaurants in Punta de Mita. Had a great time body surfing and swimming nearby at the beach; and also enjoyed daily dips in the pool. Love all the upgrades done... We had stayed in the same house before improvements; and now it feels like a new house.

My wife and I spent a week here and just loved it. Walked on the beach and laid by the pool. A lovely home along with splendid amenities. We highly recommend it to anyone wanting to make certain their stay in Mexico by the sea is enjoyable. Excellent value for your vacation dollar.
