About The Owner

My wife and I reside in San Carlos, California with our two teenage daughters. I own a General Contracting business and have been in business for over 20 years. I am an avid sailor and am a member of St. Francis Yacht Club in San Francisco. When I am not working, I enjoy sailboat racing with my daughters and friends, winter skiing in Lake Tahoe and any number of activities with my family. We love traveling, good food and just about anything that has to do with the water.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007

Why The Owner chose Nayarit

We were looking to invest in a waterfront property that was safe, quiet and filled with activities on land and sea. We also wanted to purchase in an area that was not a typical tourist destination with high-rise time shares and hotels, but rather a vacation home in a real community loaded with charm, great restaurants, shops and entertainment, but still close enough to a major city and tourist attractions. Having the Four Seasons as our next door neighbor is a great asset.

What makes this condo unique

You feel a real sense of community. We have come to know our condo neighbors, and established friendships in and around Punta de Mita and feel it is really a second home and a great environment for our children and family. The local people, of course, are the kindest people you will ever meet anywhere in the world. It is also a safe place for foreign visitors and the locals really appreciate our presence.

Nice place at a great price

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Very clean apartment. Furniture in good to excellent condition. Pool is big and clean. The grounds are well maintained. Excellent security personal at the gate. Felt very safe on the property and in the town. The owner is easy to reach by email and phone, and is helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

We Had a Blast at Faro de Mita 212

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in Faro de Mita 212, and had a fantastic time. The location is perfect for hitting the beach and restaurants, the complex and grounds are very nice, the pool is even better than the photos, the unit itself is very clean and modern and the balcony is awesome...great views of ocean/pool, spacious and private. We literally had zero complaints. Christian the owner was very easy to work with and Alejandra (property manager) was super responsive and helpful. We'll be back.

Awesome condo overlooking pool with beach view

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated and maintained condo that overlooks a large pool with waterfall. Condo has beautiful view of waves from large open air livingroom and deck area. It is one short block, either way, to beach or shops, ATM and restaurants. Our favorite local resturant was Tacos de Pappas, one block from the condo. We found the gated area to be a bonus as we always had parking and a friendly welcome when coming and going. We had a comfortable, leave it unlocked feeling so we could relax and enjoy our vacation. I would recommend this condo to any family who is looking to get away. This was our first trip to Mexico, we felt safe and had everything we needed. The condo is very well equipped, the rooms are spacious, the beds are comfortable, bathrooms and showers are large and tastefully decorated.

Below in the small town, you can rent surf boards, catch a boat to local island for snorkling or enjoy a meal with your feet in the sand, we loved our vacation at Faro de Mita!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in this condo. It had everything we needed. Gorgeous views of the propery including the pool and ocean. With the large open concept slide away windows it felt like we were right outside. Lots of space for four or five people. The unit is central to town, beaches, mini groceries, and all restaurants. Room for parking although you don't need a car. The bus loop is right up the street. Would stay here again.

Relax,......It's Mexico.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful relaxing vacation at Faro de Mita. For the month of February this condo was our home away from home and it was absolutely delightful. Upon arrival we were awe struck by the magnificent view that we learned changed almost hourly and seemed to get better and better as the days lingered. We had front row centre seats to watch the daily whale shows as they jumped and slapped their tails when they performed every morning and afternoon. When the whales were resting there was always the other attraction which was the surfers catching waves on the gentle rolling surf.

Our condo was terrific. Modern appliances, cozy beds, big screen TV, stereo, hot showers, and best of all, free phone calls to Canada and the US. The Wifi was fast and secure so we could check the freezing temperatures at home and feel so lucky we weren’t there. From our first day to the last the huge 4 panel sliding glass doors were open day and night and we felt safe and secure in our 2nd story abode.

This was our 5th vacation in Punta Mita and we all agreed it was the best simply because the accommodations were great. I would recommend this condo to anyone wanting a peaceful, relaxing get-away.
