Why michael jacks chose Bucerías

After visiting PV for decades we decided that it was time to find something to call

a second home. It was love at first sight. We bought it the day that we first saw it.

What makes this condo unique

Peace of mind due to the high level of security

The joy of waking up to such a beautiful view

The joy of relative seclusion from the madness of crowds

Surprised by the number of extremely high quality restaurants within a twenty minute drive

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just returned from my third visit and it is just as amazing, even better, than before. The villa is even more beautiful than shown (see other comments). Lots of room, great kitchen, views of Puerto Vallarta, stunning at night, a beach out front, stunning pools and all the peace and tranquility you could hope for.

What made this trip better is the entire area around Esmeralda has improved. The towns of Bucerias and Sayulita show a marked improvement. They are cleaner and livelier than before. Lots of fun places to eat; even the street food is great.

Had a banner fishing day out of PV aboard one of the Masters' boat company; trophy rooster fish! Golfed near Punta Mita. It's as nice a locale as I've visitied and I"ve stayed in many first-class resorts around the world.

Amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was an amazing experience, the condo was perfect for two families with each child having their own bed. The views and amenities were brilliant. The small wading pool was a great place to relax and enjoy the day. Thank you for a wonderful experience!!

Stunning and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Coral 2 is in the best location in the Punta Esmeralda complex, in our opinion. On the beach, yet raised above the walkway below with stunning views looking across the bay. When the sun comes above the mountains above Nuevo Vallarta and fills the area with sunlight its truly a breathtaking experience. The finicula drops you right at the front gate where after entering, you are greeted by beautiful infinity pool.

Our stay was very pleasant and all we could have hoped for. Everything is top condition and very clean. The kitchen has all the equipment needed for preparing meals. The Weber on the pool deck work great.

The restaurant for the complex is about a 50 meter walk and has incredible food. Wednesday's and Sunday's there is live entertainment.

This is a great place in a great location and would recommend to anyone.

Beautiful Beach Front Condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family booked the condo for a week, and absolutely loved our stay. Robin and Mike were always available to communicate with us before, during and after our stay. The condo was beautiful - right on the beach with beautiful pools nearby as well. The condo was overall nice and quiet, and we had plenty of privacy in the condo as well as on our patio.The restaurant at the condo was reasonably priced with great food, and wonderful staff. It was approximately a 30 minute walk down the beach to Bucerias, which we did a few times, however using the Collectivo and taxis were just as easy - and much quicker! We had an amazing time, great weather - and the ability to kick back and relax by the pool, or hit the beach for snorkelling, frisbee or spike ball. Overall a wonderful experience, thanks Robin & Mike!!

Beautiful and Tranquil - Perfect Beachfront Villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 hot days in August in this beautiful space - the view of the ocean, the decoration of the outdoor and indoor spaces- we were completely blown away. This is a gem in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle - a small town that really makes you feel like you're at a paradise getaway.

Waking up in the morning and looking out the window from the bedroom where we were made us so happy. The breakfast at the Punta Esmeralda restaurant was delicious and then walks/meditation/swimming right on the beach or from the patio was surreal. The house has strong air conditioning units and fans in all areas so though it was hot/humid outside, inside was so cool. There were only two of us so we only slept in the master bedroom but the other rooms were very nice too. Mike and Robin have great taste in furniture, which was very comfortable and unique style.

Thought it was difficult to leave Coral 2 it was the perfect location and we were able to easily walk several times along the beach Bucerias a nearby town and able to explore nearby beach cities -beach town Sayulita, famous Puerta Vallarta, and Mismaloya for snorkeling. Jumping on the local bus is so easy right from the highway, which made transport quick and reliable.

This is the kind of place you will like if you want a one-of-a-kind experience, it really is a treasure. It's not your typical Puerta Vallarta resort with over-development - it's more secluded, but also also centrally located so you can go in either direction to great little towns/cities.

Coral 2 is located in the prestigious Punta Esmeralda resort. The resort is located approximately 20 minutes north of the Puerto Vallarta airport. A short ride to the south is the cityscape of Puerto Vallarta with it's night life, tourist attractions and culture.

Fifteen minutes to the north is a completely different experience. Sayulita is a lovely, quaint Mexican village seemingly lost in time. Cobblestone streets, small stores and surf shops situated around an old time town square. The beach is broad and deep. There is both a left and right hand surf break. A stones throw from the villa is the wonderful little town of Bucerias. It offers an opportunity to shop for authentic mexican handicrafts. There are several high end restaurants and great beach shacks to satisfy your culinary desires.

The new deep water marina in Las Cruz is ten minutes away. The Polo matches in San Francisco are thirty minutes away. They shouldn't be missed.
