Property description

Villa Reyes at Playa Las Tortugas. An upscale tropical paradise at the secluded “Turtle Beach” on Mexico’s Pacific shore. Entrée Magazine summed up the picturesque setting: ..... “ a gorgeous, coconut-producing plantation, an 1100-acre estuary teeming with exotic birds and a turtle camp protecting the endangered olive ridleys ..“ The area also enjoys perfect 'Puerto Vallarta weather' ... 80's in Dec, Jan, Feb. There are usually 300 sunny days per year.

Villa Reyes beckons you to the travel experience of a lifetime in approximately 3000 square feet of exciting topical construction. 2000 sq ft of this includes the air conditioned living spaces on the first and second floors plus the two covered porches which adjoin the bedrooms downstairs and the dining and living areas on the second floor. The third floor provides 1000 square feet of open deck - equipped with a wet bar, palm covered palapa, full size outdoor day bed, dining table, and lounge chairs.

You will enjoy privacy and tranquility ... with ocean views and the sounds of waves from both king bedrooms, kitchen, living room, dining room and from the rooftop deck. The pristine beach is just a leisurely 3 minute stroll (150 yards) through colorful tropical flowers, foliage, and coconut palms. Only yards up the beach is the mangrove estuary where you can kayak and watch 125 species of exotic birds, including the resident pelicans and roseate spoonbills.

Canoe or swim across the estuary for lunch at one of Platanitos’ six sand floored, oceanfront restaurants. Enjoy a walk or a barefooted run on 5 miles of uninhabited sand beach that is lined with palm trees and goes on as far as the eye can see. The ocean waves are great for boogie boards, surfers, and ocean kayaks. The large community pool and the new 65 ft lap pool are just steps from Villa Reyes and are favorites of our guests. Volunteering to help the Turtle Camp research facility preserve the endangered sea turtle population is a popular guest activity. Even small children can participate in the release of hatchlings - sometimes as many as 1,000 in one evening.

Villa Reyes was purchased in September, 2011, by the current owners who have updated many of the amenities to insure the comfort of guests. Villa Reyes is now one of only two Tortugas rentals that offer air conditioning in all rooms – a special benefit when the mid-day temperatures heat up. A clothes washer and dryer are located in the Villa and the staff will gladly do your laundry every 3rd day. The kitchen is equipped with full size appliances and bottled water is supplied. Bath and bedroom linens are provided.

The Villa has 2 king size beds. Both spacious bedrooms have full baths, including large tiled showers. Each bedroom opens to a covered lanai. The large closets are adequate for a long term stay. (A hairdryer and iPod dock are provided.) Air mattresses are also available and Pack and Play are available for children. Our new roof-top day bed has custom insect screening and perfect ocean/pool views. This bed can provide 'starry, starry nights' for the adventuresome.

Highchairs are available. Close parental supervision is needed for children on the rooftop deck, near stairs, and in the water. Childcare can be arranged by the Property Manager.

There is daily maid and garden service to insure your Villa and the grounds are in top condition for your enjoyment.

The dining room table seats eight. The dining room table and computer desk are well positioned to retain the ocean views while you relax to use the free WiFi or just read a book from our selection of novels.

There are two additional dining areas – one on the second floor balcony and one on the rooftop. (For those of you who would like to leave the cooking to us, we can arrange affordable/authentic Mexican meals prepared in your Villa by our wonderful cooks.)

The den with flat screen TV/DVD player for free NETFLIX movies adjoins the kitchen and provides great ocean views/sounds. CD’s, DVD’s, books, board games and playing cards are provided. Colorful Mexican tiles and tasteful accent pottery will add to your enjoyment.

To reach Playa Las Tortugas, guests will travel 70 miles north from the Puerto Vallarta airport. Good roads will take you by mountain passages, small villages, roadside fruit stands, and the scenes become progressively more rural in the heart of the Riviera Nayarit. By the time you turn west toward the ocean, you will see major farming which produces tons of pineapples, large herds of cattle, and huge mango orchards. Arrival at Playa Las Tortugas before sunset is recommended to avoid bikes and stray cattle that could be on the roadways.

This area from Puerta Vallarta to Playa Las Tortugas has a great reputation for traveler safety and cordial citizenry. Top security firms have found Puerto Vallarto and the Riviera Nayarit among the safest tourist destinations in the world.

The weather in Riviera Nayarit is widely recognized as some of the best on the Planet. Average year-round temperatures range from highs of 80 to 85 degrees to lows of 60 to 70 degrees. Most rain occurs from July through September and even then, most rain occurs at night or during pre-dawn thundershowers. Much of the year is characterized by deep blue skies and ocean breezes.

There are multiple options for transport from the airport. Many guests choose to rent a car from companies like Gecko Car Rentals (they pick up and return you to the airport/they include insurance in the rental price). Some guests use bus/taxi transportation. We also offer a private shuttle that will stop for grocery shopping in Puerto Vallarta, when requested. (Our staff can provide provide next day delivery of grocery items you may have forgotten.)

A Washington Post reporter called Playa Las Tortugas his 'Shangri-La, the place I could recommend without reservation or caveat.” Our secluded beach community will indeed take you back to the 'old Mexico'.

The well appointed Villa Reyes will provide comfort, privacy, serenity and memories to last a lifetime. (For optimum privacy, Villa Reyes is a free standing dwelling ... not a duplex or condominium.)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: My wife and I are 'seniors' who traveled the world before finding our paradise on this five miles of secluded beach in rural Mexico. I was a Navy pilot and am a retired attorney from South Carolina. Currently, we divide our time between Georgia, and Mexico. We love being immersed in nature and fully support the conservation of Mexico's abundant turtle population. We are adventure seekers and we love the stimulating environment which we have found in rural 'old Mexico'. The people are especially friendly ... they are very tolerate of folks who do not speak Spanish.

Why the Owner Chose Platanitos, Nayarit, Mexico:
Playa Las Tortugas is the most pristine natural environment that we have found in 50 years of extensive travel. We have a five mile beach that is virtually uninhabited. A fresh water estuary provides miles of mangrove lined waterfront that is ripe for exploration by kayak. At times, the butterflies add a further colorful dimension. The weather is phenomenal. The closest restaurants are 20 minutes away by kayak and a little longer if you drive. They have sand floors and the fresh red snapper is cooked on open charcoal grills. Our home is located in a grove of coconut palms and tropical flowers which line the beach access. A large and refreshing community pool (lighted) and a 65 ft lap pool are only steps from our Villa. In combination, these natural attributes spell 'PARADISE'. For visitors, these amenities will provide the most memorable vacation of their life.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The culture in rural areas of Mexico has remained true to tradition. Many aspects of life are slow and akin to 'yesteryear'. Often, farmers on horseback are contrasted with huge tractors that foreshadow the changes that are in progress. However, when the sun retreats at day's end, virtually all of the town's people come out to socialize with their neighbors on street sides and town squares. Nearby, vendors push carts laden with diverse food and beverages. Tiny 'mom & pop' stores sell vegetables and necessities from sidewalk displays. All in all, visitors can still experience the cultural warmth of old Mexican when visiting this area of Riviera Nayarit. SEE MORE DETAILS at http://www.villa-reyes.com
