About the Property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This is truly a place you can kick back, put your feet up and enjoy a margarita or four.

We have designed and decorated our El Encanto penthouse residence to have the comfort and elegance of the Punta Mita Four Seasons. In fact, we own several units in the Four Seasons Residence Club and also rent them out. They are quite popular and rent for much more than our El Encanto residence which is a bit of a mystery as we genuinely prefer staying at El Encanto to the Four Seasons. And, this is especially now the case as we and our rental guests have access to the fabulous and very luxurious St. Regis Beach Club just down the road. This is a very good deal! For a reasonable per person daily price you get full use of the resort's very stunning Beach Club and its ocean front activities. And, the per person cost is immediately refunded to you by means of a credit you can use in the beach club's restaurants and bars. The St. Regis in Punta Mita is genuinely one of the world's most spectacular resorts.

In addition to the St. Regis Resort, our guests also have full use of two private owners' beach clubs at Punta Mita, the resort's two world class Jack Nicklaus golf courses, ten tennis courts and the owners' private fitness center. Our favorite place to eat in Punta Mita is at the owners' beach club! Also, the rates you pay as our guest are even somewhat reduced from the regular rates others (people staying at the Four Seasons or St. Regis resorts for instance) are paying.

We think the greatest feature of our El Encanto penthouse residence are the wonderful 360 degree views it has. Here you get views of the Pacific Ocean, both golf courses and the Sierra Madre Mountains. In the morning you get spectacular sunrises as the sun climbs over the mountains across the bay (to view a VIDEO OF THE SUNRISE from our balcony click video button at top of listing) and in the evening cocktail perfect sunsets are enjoyed off the master bedroom terrace and the front porch. In fact, last month, we just renovated our front entry way terrance and turned it into a Sunset Margarita Bar complete with bar stools and appropriate decorating. It is kind of cool. And, if you are into whales they are easily watchable off of our residence's many terraces during the winter months. While we are not totally unbiased, we truly believe our residence has the best views in all of Punta Mita.

The master bedroom has a large private wrap around terrace. The master suite also has a king size bed with a to-die-for mattress that we sourced from the same place the Four Seasons procures their mattresses. A large flat screen HD TV is in the master bedroom. A separate dressing room and large bath with separate tub and shower complete the master suite. The other two bedrooms feature a queen size bed and two double beds, respectively.

The living rooms features a large flat screen HD TV with a surround sound home theater set up. We have also installed Apple TV so you can access a raft of shows and movies from it, Netfilx, Hulu and other media sources. The living room and dining room areas also have sliding glass doors that when open create a very airy, bright and spacious feel to the residence. We have almost 4000 square feet of indoor/outdoor living area and it is designed to bring all of the outdoors right inside the unit.

We also own and rent properties in Kiawah Island, SC and Scottsdale, AZ which are also quite nice places. But, neither compares to the beauty, the friendliness and fun of Punta Mita and all it has to offer.

Keywords: Best views (in our opinion) in all of Punta Mita. Click on the video link immediately to the left to view a time lapse video of sunrise from one of our terraces. Every morning is like this. Close and unobstructed views of ocean and Jack Nicklaus golf courses. Plunge pool on terrace. Flat screen HD TVs, surround sound audio system, fully equipped kitchen, elegantly decorated in Four Seasons style and comfort, full use privileges at both Punta Mita private club and St. Regis Resort's Beach Club. Magnificent sunrise views from living room and back terrace. Sunset views from Master bedroom and terrace. New sunset margarita bar. Four Season resort nearby. Whale watching daily during winter months. Twelve great tennis courts. We love this place!

Rental at El Encanto also provides full use of the facilities of the private Punta Mita Club as our guests. As such, you have full access to the two Jack Nickalus golf courses, wonderful tennis facility and two beach clubs including the brand new Kupuri Beach club. Our favorite place to eat is at the Resident's Private Beach Club! You can use the golf and tennis facilities at our guest rate which is below that of the resort rates offered at the Four Seasons or St. Regis hotels.

Also, when staying at our El Encanto residence you have full use of the amenities at the ultra luxury St. Regis Beach Club just down the road. We like the St. Regis even better than the Four Seasons! The St. Regis deal is that for $80/day/adult and you get full use of their beach club facilities. This cost is then credited back to you in the form of a credit to be used at the hotel's restaurants and bars.

Year Purchased: 2008

About: We are a family of five with three daughters that are now all living on their own (Manhattan, Brooklyn and Philadelphia). It is becoming increasingly difficult to get all of us together for any extended lengths of time but everyone seems to have time to visit Punta Mita (especially when dad is footing the bill!) We love playing golf and tennis which is what attracted us to Punta Mita in the first place. We also enjoy eating out and a cocktail or two from time to time. There are no shortages for either in Punta Mita. We only get to Punta Mita about three times a year as I am still working and also enjoy visiting our other properties in Kiawah Island and Scottsdale. But, we plan on wintering in Punta Mita once I retire.

Why Bahía de Banderas, Nay., Mexico:
Up until seven years ago we used to go to Hawaii at least once during the winter. Since we discovered Punta Mita we have not set foot back in the 50th state. We find the people of Mexico to be friendlier, the prices more reasonable, the weather more reliable (a lot less rain), the food more fun and enjoyable and whole vibe more relaxed and less pretentious. And, as we live in Chicago, Punta Mita is a mere non-stop, four hour flight away that is in the same time zone. We didn’t realize how much easier it is to get to Punta Mita than Hawaii which is six time zones and a few connecting flights away. And, we never have to take a red eye fight home! Hawaii is great mind you, it is just that Punta Mita is so much better.
