Why Valerie Bowlen chose Punta Mita

The dependability of the weather has been outstanding. The immense diversity of activities and amenities provided in a safe, secure environment for all ages from small children to teenagers to young adults was an extremely important factor in our choice to purchase a property here. The water is triple-filtered so very safe to drink, there is 24/7 medical care available on-site, the kid's camp, playground and warm swimming pool at the beach club have all contributed to the enjoyment of this area. The concierge service is excellent. There are kayaks and boogie boards at the Resident Beach Club as well. All ages of friends and family have experienced the magnificence of this beautiful and unique area of the world. The Beach Club also has superb spa services available with private services on the beach for a fantastic, relaxing experience. This is 5 star luxury at its best! The condo itself offers the larger, private,heated pool and larger outdoor living space with a BBQ so this provided great outdoor social time for all ages as well as privacy.

Fantastic family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Had a great trip to Punta Mita - the house was amazing and a perfect fit for our party of 8 with young kids. The pool was big enough to keep them entertained, and the golf car was exceptionally helpful for going to the beach clubs and in town for dinner. A big thank you to Stephanie for all her help arranging everything from dinners to babysitters and transportation - that made the trip even more stress free!

The condo is as described, and exceeded expectations. The location within the gated community is very close to the golf course, the town, and the Residents Beach Club and about 20 minutes from the Kupuri Beach Club. Kupuri has recently been redone and is a beautiful beach and club. The owner and property manager were delightful and attended to all our needs.

Perfect Place for a Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5 trip to Punta Mita but first at El Encanto. This was a perfect place for our family of 5, which includes two 5 year old girls. More than enough room and the plunge pool was perfect for the kids. We plan on being back next year.

Wonderful Week!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week prior to Christmas with our two teenage daughters. We loved the property and anytime we needed anything we received an immediate response. The house is beautifully decorated and very clean. It was quiet and peaceful and overlooks the golf course. We loved the beach club, about a ten to fifteen minute ride on the golf cart but we would camp out there all day and have delicious lunches, drinks by the pool or beach and were completely catered to. Every night we took the golf cart into town for one amazing dinner after another. We loved every minute at Punta Mita and at the house. Highly recommended!
