About the Property

Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths, (Sleeps 15)

From the gated entry to the cobblestone drive, around the bend awaits the perfect blend of Mexican architecture and contemporary decor in a stunning quad level 9,000 sq. foot open-air villa.

Perched high upon a cliff, this magnificent beauty opens to a luxurious fountain and traverses down the hillside, through lush tropical flora, and ends at a lower palapa just above the crashing waves of Santiago Bay.

This well appointed home contains furnishings and amenities that you would expect of a luxury vacation villa.

Just beyond the entry, there is a private staff quarters with separate 1/2 bath for staff use and an elevator which accesses the three levels of the main home.

The grand master suite, 'Bird of Paradise' is completely private on the second level with expansive views surrounded by glass doors and a wrap around terrace and balcony complete with a fountain and lounge furniture.

You will enjoy magnificent sunsets from this balcony. The room is quite large and is well appointed with a king bed with a grand white leather headboard and matching ottoman, satellite TV with additional seating area, two ceiling fans, and day bed that is perfect for TV viewing or allows a child separate en-suite sleeping arrangements. There is a very spacious master bath with granite countertops and double sinks, large walk-in closet, separate toilet/bidet room, and a large double shower with exquisite glass views of La Audencia Beach.

The first guest suite in the main house, 'Mango Fruta', can sleep 2-4 people in two queen beds with exquisite striped fabric headboards. There is a large walk-in closet, small sitting area, ceiling fan, satellite TV, and a large furnished balcony with expansive bay views and a grand Mango tree within arm's reach! This suite has an attached private bath with granite countertop and large walk-in shower.

The second guest suite in the main home, 'Hibiscus Flor', is on the lowest level and can also sleep 2-4 guests in two queen beds. This suite contains a large walk-in closet, and satellite TV. The attached private bath is complete with granite countertops, and a large combo shower/Jacuzzi waterfall tub. The balcony is very spacious and furnished with great views of Santiago Bay and is surrounded by lush Hibiscus hedges and provides a walk way to the pool area.

There is a separate apartment suite, 'La Casita', that is adjacent to the main stairwell, but is completely private with an additional private entrance from the street level. It contains a living area, with satellite TV, kitchenette with cook top and mini fridge, and breakfast bar with seating for three. The bedroom houses a king bed, ceiling fan, closet, and small bathroom with shower.

This home contains an expansive amount of original art with striking canvases. The living and dining area have four tri-fold glass doors with unobstructed views of the pool and large palapa overlooking Santiago Bay, and can be opened completely for the open-air feel that you expect in a Mexican villa.

Air conditioning is also available in all living spaces if needed. There is an additional satellite TV in this space and the dining table seats eight with additional seating for four at the breakfast bar.

The focal point of the entire home rests beneath the large furnished palapa that can seat 12-16 for outdoor dining. It is equipped with comfortable lounge furniture and tables, outdoor beverage cooler, ceiling fan, and Bose speakers for the stereo system with a generous CD collection.

Adjacent to the palapa is a large, heated, infinity edge pool with swim up bar and four luxurious chaise loungers. The seventh bathroom is located just steps below the palapa and is very spacious and complete with a changing room and shower.

Take a stroll down the lighted stairway to find a completely private honeymoon cottage, 'Papaya Verde', that rests below the pool area. It contains an entry with lighted art niche, walk-in closet, and huge bathroom with beautiful bay views from the Jacuzzi waterfall tub. There is a separate large shower with private room for toilet and bidet. This suite comes with a king size bed, satellite TV, and mini fridge. The suite is adorned with a walk-out balcony, as well as, an additional large furnished balcony.

If you leave the cottage and continue the stroll on the lighted stairway down the hillside, you will arrive at a beautiful built in lounge rest area complete with cocktail table for sunset views.

Just below this area is the second palapa situated on the rocky cliff just above the water. Enjoy the two chaise loungers or hammock as you hear the crashing waves against the rocks and view the scurrying of many crabs and abundant ocean life. There is fishing access off the rocks from this lower palapa for the adventuresome type.

If service is what you are striving for, the home is complete with a local manager, and house staff including two maids, and a private chef. This property is flush with tropical flora and the house staff places fresh flora in the home for your stay.

From impeccable cleaning service, to full service laundry for normal washables, and even turn down service, your stay will not be forgotten.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all of the finest amenities from the States and affords the chef the ability to produce a menu that will delight your finest of tastes. From both coastal and regional cuisine, the chef will leave you wondering what possibly lies ahead for the next meal as he prepares signature dishes unique to this home.

This upscale gated community has its own private beach, club house and tennis club for the exclusive use of guests. The renowned Las Hadas Golf and Marina Resort located a stroll down from La Punta offers golfing, restaurants, cafes, souvenir shopping and a full service marina.

We will cater to your needs or just sit back, relax, and let the staff take you to a level of service that will be hard to leave.
