About the Property

House, 10 Bedrooms, 10.5 Baths, (Sleeps 18)

HACIENDA ALEGRE

Hacienda Alegre is a large two-acre estate in a gated community that has three houses and unobstructed, sweeping waterfront views. It is ideal for families, reunions, and business retreats (accommodates up to 18 people but we prefer groups up to 16): there is a five bedroom main house, a three bedroom guest house, and a two bedroom pool house surrounded by two acres of lush gardens (very tranquil). Enjoy your own private swimming pool and tennis court on this beach front property (legendary surfing right in front of house). Hacienda Alegre is in the gated community of Punta del Burro and is 40 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta and 5 minutes south of Punta Mita. This property offers a broader range of features, including:
*Wonderful staff-cook, housecleaner, groundskeepers, and concierge
*Classic 180-degree vista of the Pacific Ocean and the mountain-rimmed Bay
*Ocean front, 30 steps down to the beach
*Best surfing beach this part of Mexico
*Large, lush, tropical gardens with fruit trees and exotic plants with private paths and places for reading and meditation practices
*Tennis court and large swimming pool
*Amazing bird (jungle and ocean) watching and migrating whales in front of house
*Gated community security

THE EXPERIENCE:
Hacienda Alegre is a 2-acre nature experience with the main house overlooking the beach with sweeping, uninterrupted views east to Puerto Vallarta against a back drop of mountains around the horseshoe-shaped Bay of Banderas. To the west, you look along the rugged coastline towards the Pacific Ocean. Surfing is a daily delight. The sunsets (and cocktail hour) are magical from the large patio. During the winter and early spring, the bay is visited by whales, dolphins and other interesting sea characters. Every day, summer or winter, the lines of pelicans gliding above the ocean waves never cease to amaze.

All bedrooms and common areas have ceiling fans and/or air-conditioning; all bedrooms have decks/patios overlooking gardens and/or ocean views, and ensuite bathrooms.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: As a married couple, one side is American and the other side is British which partly may explain why we have long had a eccentric thirst for discovering and experiencing exciting foreign places. We have been blessed with the opportunity to live in some of the most beautiful spots on this planet. We resided in Singapore for several decades and progressively built homes in Bali, Australia, Singapore and the United States. We also bought land in Myanmar (the old Burma), only to find out that we could never own land in this country.

Why the Owner Chose Bahía de Banderas, Nay., Mexico:
In 1989, we visited an estate called Punta Del Burro, just 30 miles north of Puerta Vallarta. We walked to the highest point on the beach front which gave us a breathtaking 180 degree scan of Banderas Bay and promptly bought the lot, all 2 acres of it. A year later, we built our dream Mexican home and made a promise to ourselves that we have kept to this day -- we would retain it as a rare nature experience on the ocean, and our most frequent visitors -- exotic tropical birds and pelicans -- are pleased that we have.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If you like sports, there is a large menu: great surfing, snorkeling, sailing, fishing, tennis, table tennis, and beach volleyball. If you like beaches, you just go down 30 steps and you are there. There is also a huge 2 mile long sandy beach just 4 minutes drive away. If you like restaurant and bars, you have the towns of Punta del Mita, La Cruz, Bucerias, and Sayulita all within a 30 minutes drive. If you like to just laze around, there are upteen sun decks and shaded retreats to enjoy in the large, lush, tropical gardens
