About the property

3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, sleeps 6-8+. Great view

Privacy is primary from this property elevated above the golf course with a spectacular panoramic vista overlooking both Jack Nicklaus Signature golf courses and the Bay of Banderas. A truly hidden gem in the Punta Mita Resort, this is the ground floor condo in a building with only 3 condos , only ONE per floor. Total indoor/outdoor living area of over 4,000 square feet (over 2,600 sq. ft. indoor). The building is built on an elevated site above the golf course for great views of the water both on the Bay and the large lake of the golf course and privacy from golfers. The golf course is well below the terrace. This unit has the largest TOTAL living space as the terrace is continuous and extends around 3 sides of this unit adding over 1,400 sq. ft. of outdoor living area as well as the largest private infinity pool of the building. Sunsets (and sunrises) can be viewed from the outdoor living and dining areas while enjoying the convenience of a full wet bar and BBQ area. (Many condos in the area do not have private BBQs and outdoor bar areas.) There are 4 sun beds by the pool and two on the private terrace off the master bedroom. Each room has seating outside on the terrace in front of that room to enjoy the wonderful views. The gourmet kitchen is equipped for the most discerning cook or chef with utensils and appliances including an easy to use latte and coffee maker and a blender for those refreshing poolside drinks. The tap water is triple-filtered for safe drinking.

The condo is located in the quiet, secluded, and secure area of El Encanto, within the gates of the Punta Mita development near the Four Seasons and St. Regis Resorts. All of the beds, including the pull-outs, are extremely comfortable for superb sleeping pleasure. The Resident Beach Club provides a safe beach environment for the entire family with a secure beach, fantastic restaurant, spa and concierge services available daily.We have a Premier Membership which gives guests complimentary access to BOTH the Residents' Beach Club and the exclusive, spectacular Kupuri Beach Club. The tennis club and work out facility as well as the two Jack Nicklaus golf courses (also only accessible to Premier Members and guests) add more optional sports activities within the gates. Whale watching, fishing, surfing and sailing are available within 10 minutes from the flat along with many choices of restaurants. With 342 days of sunshine per year and the exceptional comforts provided in this flat, this is an extremely dependable holiday destination for family and friends. This property is furnished and equipped as a family home, not just a basic rental. We offer SPECIAL RATES for 30 DAY guests which INCLUDE golf and tennis privileges at an ALL-INCLUSIVE rate. Along with the Resident's Beach Club (and its pools, beach, restaurant and spa services), you will have access to both the wonderful beach at Kupuri for serene walks or great boogie boarding and to the truly magnificent St. Regis Resort Beach Club for dining and or enjoying the beach or the spa facilities. Again, we have a Premier Membership which gives you added access to both golf courses and both beach clubs.

About Valerie Bowlen

The seclusion, security and dependability of the weather have made this a true tropical paradise for our family and friends. We have had a magnificent wedding here last year which was very special and beautiful for all that attended. The golf courses as well as the Beach Club, beautiful tennis courts and work out facility, surfing and amenities have provided all ages of family including young grandchildren and friends with a memorable holiday and time shared together.

Valerie Bowlen purchased this condo in 2009

Why Valerie Bowlen chose Nayarit

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.

What makes this condo unique

The elevation of this property has given this ground floor condo a spectacular perch above the golf course with additional views of the Sierre Madre Mountains, Bay of Banderas and the lake on the golf course. This condo has been equipped with extremely comfortable beds in all the bedrooms; the pull-out beds are exceptionally comfortable too. The kitchen is a cook's or chef's dream for cooking and/or entertaining family and friends. The outdoor terraces and dining area wrap around 3 sides of the condo with the outdoor living area adding 1,458 sq. ft. of living area to the 2,631 sq. ft. of living area inside. In addition, there is a BBQ and wet bar area outside which many condos in the area do not have due to building restrictions. The heated private pool is also a truly terrific addition. Indoor and outdoor living is at it's best with superbly comfortable sun beds (6), terrace furniture on over 1450 sq. ft. of terrace and over 2600 sq.ft. of indoor space with great furniture along with the beautiful views from the terraces and as well as the views from each room in this condo all make this condo a pleasure to live in. Our guests are treated as family with a concierge available full time for assistance with any reservations, babysitting, catering or suggestions for activities. This condo is located in the especially beautiful development of El Encanto, an exceptional hidden gem inside the Punta Mita Resort.

Perfection perfected!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for my birthday celebration during mid-September and every detail was executed just as planned, and greatly exceeded our expectations. Valerie answered all my detailed questions in advance, our car service picked us up as arranged and stopped at the Megamart and waited over an hour for us while we shopped. We arrived to the stunningly beautiful home, just like the photos, and were delighted to see how well-provisioned the house was. Stephanie met us the first morning, and chatted with us and gave so many tips and suggestions. My girlfriend hurt her foot while we were there, and Stephanie arranged with the medical center to have crutches waiting for us! The entire process was smooth, easy, well organized, as beautiful as the pictures, and over-all a "10". We will definitely be back! Don't miss the Kapuri Beach Club and the cucumber margaritas. We also loved Si Senior and Blue Shrimp. Having the golf cart made it so fun and easy to get around. Thank you to Valerie and Stephanie for a luxury class experience!

Favorite Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We typically visit Hawaii and this year my family decided to go to Punta Mita, was spectacular!! El Encanto was the perfect setting to celebrate a couple of milestone birthdays - a 21st and 65th birthday and we could not have enjoyed our vacation more. We absolutely loved your property; the accommodations, the hospitality and the staff were a huge part in making this one of our favorite family vacations!! The owner and concierge recommendations for food were spot on; we had some of the best seafood and meal service ever - Si Senor and Blue Shrimp were our favorites!! In addition to our own infinity pool we had an added bonus of access to the newly renovated Kupuri Beach Club, with multiple pools on a private and pristine stretch of white sandy beach...we have never felt so pampered and the service was impeccable! We will definitely return to Punta Mita, specifically to El Encanto!! Thank you Valerie & Stephanie!

Best Family Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

What an experience! I booked this trip from my family as a Christmas Gift. A total of 7 of us went and the accommodations were more than adequate for the group! The property is beautiful, clean and very safe and everything was VERY affordable. We had a little issue with the AC in the kitchen area at the start of the trip but Stephanie (house manager) was on it and very responsive. The cleaning service was outstanding and she came just the right amount of times during the trip. The only issue we had was that the phone (land line) didn't work but but the internet, cable etc worked beautifully! We even watched the epic NBA finals. Last but certainly not least came the surprise engagement at Kumpari beach! No better place to get engaged! You won't regret this trip!

Wonderful clean well located condo

  • 5 of 5

First time to Mexico that we didn't do an all inclusive hotel so felt a little nervous - no reason to. Spoke to Valerie for close to an hour by phone and she reassured us on how safe her condo is and went over places to eat with us things to do .She gave us so many great tips, the best one has to be the champagne reception at the St Regis on a Friday evening, free appetizers , margaritas and champagne.

The condo is well located, so clean and comfortable and access to the best beach club. Stephanie the property manager arranged everything for us and was always available to answer any questions or concerns promptly.

I highly recommend this place and look forward to returning again

Beautiful, spacious and wonderful condo! Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

This was my second visit to Punta Mita and first in this condo. The condo was perfect for our family, which includes an 8 year old and an 11 year old. The unit is very spacious with plenty of room for everyone. The condo is kept clean, is well-stocked with towels and has lovely finishes. The property manager was super helpful and provided great recommendations for dining and entertainment. We felt welcomed by all of the gate staff in the community and felt very safe while there. It is without hesitation that I would recommend this condo for your next Punta Mita getaway!
