About the property

Villa, 7 Bedrooms, 8.5 Baths, (Sleeps up to 18), private cabana on the beach

Casa Querencia welcomes guests from the moment you arrive. Located in Kupuri— Punta Mita's newest, most exclusive enclave—the house sits above a wide sandy beach, with gentle waves perfect for swimming or paddle boarding. A lush private garden with an outdoor bar and fire patio leads down to a private cabana on the beach. The brand-new, luxurious Kupuri Beach Club is right next door, with a range of amenities including a restaurant, bars, spa, ocean activities center, kids' club and boutique. The Resident's Beach Club and St. Regis Beach Club, two Jack Nicklaus golf courses, tennis and fitness center, and restaurants and surf shops in town are all a quick golf cart or bike ride away (less than a mile from the house).

The friendly, professional staff makes it easy for you to relax and enjoy your vacation. Our driver will pick you up at the airport and our butler will serve you a margarita as soon as you arrive. Our chef takes a gourmet approach to traditional Mexican dishes and local specialties, using the freshest seafood, fruits and vegetables. Our housekeeper does daily laundry and turndown service, and our concierge will give you a tour of the area and arrange any activities for you. All meals, drinks and transportation are included in the rental cost (you just pay for groceries and liquor at no mark-up).

Designed by architect Jaime Barba, known for some of the most beautiful homes in coastal Mexico, Casa Querencia offers dramatic water views and cool ocean breezes from every room. The main palapa features a water channel running its length, spilling into the cocktail pool, which spills into the infinity-edge lap pool and adjacent Jacuzzi. A sandy hammock terrace beckons from the pool, and just below, a grassy lawn invites children to run and play. On the next level, a stone patio features an outdoor bar and fire pit with a spectacular view of the ocean and sunset. A winding path through the garden leads past two separate casitas and down to a private cabana on the beach, where guests can enjoy the privacy of their own meals and relaxation, or can partake in the restaurant and pool at the Kupuri Beach Club, next door.

Perfect for multiple families or large groups, this is a beach house designed with fun in mind. With a full basketball court, a media room with a giant surround-sound movie system, golf carts, paddle boards, bikes, kayaks and boogie boards, you won't run out of things to do here.

Warm, melon-colored walls, colorful fabrics and traditional Mexican artwork create a vibrant, yet relaxing vibe. Much of the furniture was handmade by local artisans, using native tropical hardwoods. Lines blur between indoors and out, with the main palapa open on one side to the ocean and on the other to a landscaped palm garden with a stone water fountain, and flanked by tropical pathways. Numerous private spaces beckon—a sandy hammock pavilion beside the pool; a colorful sun terrace with a daybed nook perfect for midday napping or sleeping under the stars; a giant marble outdoor tub set in a private garden.

Each of the seven bedrooms offers a private terrace facing the ocean, furnished with comfortable daybeds, so guests can read or nap while others swim and play below. The master suite boasts 180-degree views from a wraparound terrace, indoor and outdoor showers and a small office. Two other guest suites offer king-size beds. A fourth suite has two queen beds, and a bunk room sleeps six. Two private casitas—one with a king bed and one with two queens—are just steps from the beach. All bedrooms offer AC and flat-screen TVs. In addition, a loft above the media room sleeps four on pullout futons, with its own full bathroom, while the media room couches can accommodate additional overflow guests.

Punta Mita has quickly become the destination of choice for discerning travelers. With its year-round sunny climate, two Jack Nicklaus golf courses, eight miles of sandy beaches, world-class dining and spa services, ultra-secure gated community, and proximity to lively Mexican villages, it provides the perfect beach vacation. Whether you're sipping a cappuccino in the morning on your private terrace, watching the whales play in the bay from your vantage point in the cabana, or enjoying a margarita in the cocktail pool or the outdoor fire pit as the sun goes down, Casa Querencia is the perfect home base for your Punta Mita vacation.

About Jane McConnell

We are a family of six from Boulder, Colorado. Punta Mita is our favorite place to vacation in the world!

Jane McConnell purchased this estate in 2010

Why Jane McConnell chose Punta Mita

We started coming to the Four Seasons Punta Mita in 2006 and fell in love with the area. We looked at houses in the resort, but nothing felt quite perfect, until the Kupuri development opened up. The minute we saw the white sand beach and turquoise water, we knew this was where we wanted to build our beach house. It was three years in the planning and building, and now we have a house that we truly consider to be paradise.

What makes this estate unique

We love bringing our family and friends—the house comfortably accommodates 20+. We're always happy to see the staff again—Pancho, who makes the best margaritas and limonada and serves them with a smile, Elio, whose cooking is better than any restaurant in town, and Andrea, who takes care of our every need in a professional and charming way. Being on Kupuri Beach is a huge plus—homeowners come from all over the resort to enjoy this beautiful stretch of sand that we get to access right out our door! Morning yoga classes in the Kupuri Beach Club palapa are heavenly, as are long walks along the beach with a cup of coffee or snorkeling or kayaking expeditions in the bay. We have a jogging/biking trail right out our door, which takes you to the other beach clubs, tennis/fitness club and town. There is always as much action or relaxation as you could possibly desire!

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Thank you for another amazing week in paradise! Andrea and Pancho ensured that we experienced the best of Punta Mita. Maggy’s food was excellent and the rest of the staff made us feel so welcome and relaxed. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We were pampered, well fed, entertained and felt completely refreshed within a few days. What a special place you have created here.”

Your own personal resort paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I booked this property for an extended stay of almost 3.5 weeks... We had an AMAZING time!! This property is perfect for groups of adults or various aged families- we had two infants there and it was a great experience for all age levels. The staff were incredible- the food that Chef Sergio delighted us with 3 times each day was outstanding- the property far exceeded our expectations!! We didn't have to lift a finger- the house staff did our laundry every day and handled every single detail for us. I highly recommend this property for anyone looking to get away from it all and enjoy your own private beach resort!

Thank you Casa Querencia for a great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we imagined: beautiful and perfectly maintained. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable, always with a smile on their faces (Gracias, Paco, Pancho, and Diego!). Chef Sergio's meals were terrific - our group of 15 ate every meal together at the large dining table except the night we enjoyed homemade pizza in the media room and watched the NCAA Basketball Final on the big screen. We used the golf carts for an easy drive into town for shopping and drinks. Every night we had cocktails and listened to music (via sonos app) in the giant hot tub. Really no complaints from any of our group -- we'd love to come back soon!
