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. And, due to a cancellation, Christmas week for 2015 is now available.

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 all the amenities of 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 the private owners' club at Punta Mita. This allows you to use the resort's two world class Jack Nicklaus golf courses, the twelve tennis courts and the owners' private beach club and restaurant. 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!

About Brian Williams

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.

Brian Williams purchased this villa in 2008

Why Brian Williams chose Nayarit

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.

We stayed at Brian’s El Encanto condo and had a fantastic time. The panoramic views from the 3rd floor top story are spectacular. Our family of 5 (with 3 college age kids) had plenty of room for lounging and relaxing. The location in the heart of the Punta Mita property is perfect with easy access to all beaches and the fitness center. But what really distinguished this spot was the customer service from Brian and his team. He connected us to resources for our car rental, restaurants and beach clubs. All his local recommendations were spot on. He was extremely responsive and his insider’s guide into activities was very helpful. The concierge Giovanni was first rate and he handled all our request for drinks, food and housekeeping with a high sense of urgency and customer service. Bottom line: we loved our stay and will be back at Brian’s unit. A+ experience!

Amazing Condo

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful vacation in Punta Mita. This was our second time to PM, our first time at El Encanto. Our accommodations at El Encanto were absolutely amazing! The three bedroom condo is beautifully appointed and has amazing views from every room. It was so nice to wake up to beautiful sunrises. There is also a spot to watch the sunsets. I should mention that the beds were the most comfortable beds we have ever had in a rental. The owner Brian was a pleasure to work with - he responded quickly to all our inquiries and followed up with us to make sure we had arrived safely and that we had everything we needed. Giovanni the concierge was extremely helpful - responded quickly to all our needs. We worked with him prior to our arrival and he arranged for a golf cart rental, chef to cook dinners and made all our restaurant reservations. He even was able to arrange for a bike rental at the last minute after we had arrived during a very busy time in Punta Mita. There were 4 adults and two teenagers and we had more than enough room. The outdoor spaces were perfect for relaxing after a "hard" day at the beach. We had a spectacular vacation and highly recommend staying here!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this penthouse villa over Thanksgiving 2015 and found the experience to be wonderful. Brian the owner was a pleasure to work with - always quick to respond to emails and questions and followed up to make sure we were fully prepared for our visit (as a long time seasonal resident in PM you won't find anyone with better recommendations). Gio the manager was also wonderful in helping us set up everything that we needed in advance to make our trip perfect (rented a golf cart, arranged dinner reservations each night, supplied unit with a crib and high chair, assisted with luggage on check-in/out, etc). Everything went off without a hitch. The unit itself is very comparable to the Four Seasons 3 bed units (about the same size, quality of furnishings, pool, etc), but would say that the view from this villa is much better than FS (270 views v. 180, closer to water, views of both water and golf course). For beach access we would hit the residents beach club or the St. Regis beach club each day which are a short golf cart ride away. If you are ok (or actually prefer) with not being at a hotel, this is a perfect option in Punta Mita. Will certainly stay with Brian again!

A magical vacation spot!!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation in Punta Mita was truly amazing! This condo is beautiful and luxurious, with every comfort and convenience you could hope for. The owner thought of everything that could make a guest's stay complete, and we discovered thoughtful extra touches throughout the condo. The decor is elegant yet also very comfortable - we felt relaxed and at home immediately. The moment we stepped inside, we were drawn to the full walls of windows and the spectacular views of the ocean, bay, mountains, and lush gardens. We loved that the floor to ceiling windows can be completely opened - they seem to disappear as they slide entirely behind beautiful, cleverly designed wooden panels - seamlessly merging the inside and outside. The condo is very spacious with a large living/dining room and expansive terraces, and the layout ensures privacy for everyone. Our sons each had their own bedroom, bathroom, and terrace, giving them personal space. The master bedroom is on a corner, with a private terrace wrapped around both sides and windows that can be slid completely open, making you feel like you’re outdoors. There are also plantation shutters with built-in screens, allowing for fresh air at night without leaving the windows entirely open. The kitchen is huge and fully appointed with high-end appliances, dishes, glassware, pots and pans, and cooking utensils - plus there’s a great grill on the terrace. We enjoyed cooking breakfasts and dinners, and eating at the dining table and on the terrace. We probably would have been content not setting foot outside of the condo – but there's SO much more to partake of in Punta Mita! The property is gorgeous, flawlessly maintained, and quite large (we were glad to have a rental car, one of the owner’s many thoughtful suggestions.) The Residents' Beach Club was our favorite place - a perfect beach, pool, and terrific restaurant and bar area, with friendly and attentive staff. We also enjoyed the St. Regis beach, pools, dining, and spa. There are so many outstanding restaurants, both on the Punta Mita property and in the adjacent town, that you'd need several weeks to sample them all. Our favorites were Sufi (close to the condo) and Aramara (at the Four Seasons), plus Tuna Blanca and Si Senor in the town – all had excellent food, great staff, and beautiful settings and ambiance. Our stay in this spectacular El Encanto penthouse in Punta Mita was an unforgettable vacation experience for our family, and we highly recommend it!!

Best Spring Break ever!

  • 5 of 5

This will be our third year returning to Punta Mita for Spring Break. Our family of five would be hard pressed to find better accommodations anywhere! This penthouse is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. It has been meticulously maintained and Giovanni, the concierge, couldn't be more helpful.

Our first year we did not know exactly what to expect, but what we got was fresh guacamole and tequila upon arrival! To open the doors and see the ocean just past our plunge pool was breathtaking! The kids immediately got on their suits and took a dip. Every bedroom and bathroom is perfection. The penthouse is so spacious that we all felt like we had privacy whenever we wanted it. If you are looking for a luxurious place to stay, this is the place.

Punta Mita itself is one of the best family places we have been. We rented a golf cart and drove it everywhere. Our favorite place is the Residence Beach Club. Watching the sun set with a cocktail in hand was the perfect way to end a day at the beach. We also drove the cart in to town. Every restaurant was wonderful. Everyone in town is so nice and the food is out of this world! If you feel like eating at home, there is a beautiful outdoor set up for grilling.

We went deep sea fishing, paddle boarding, snorkeling and surfing. But we also spent a lot of time on our beach chairs just enjoying the sun. My husband is a golfer and says that the courses look great. He will be bringing his clubs this year. The other outstanding part is the tennis facility. We drove there everyday and played for an hour. It's beautifully maintained and we never had a problem getting a court.

We are a family that likes to travel to a different place each year, but we will return to Punta Mita for a third time because it's just that great. We have been to many places on Mexico, but this is by far our favorite, both for the accommodations and Punta Mita itself!

Punta Mita paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is a dream vacation rental! Our family of 6 has stayed at both the Four Season and the St. Regis properties in Punta Mita- both of which are lovely. We are huge fans of Punta Mita, and were looking for more spacious accommodations for our next visit. We had never used VRBO before, and I must say, we more than lucked out to come across this beautiful Punta Mita condo and its most gracious owners. The 3 bedroom unit is extremely spacious and well-decorated (and perhaps one of the finest decorating jobs in Punta Mita- and I have seen quite a few !). My family of six has been more than comfortable here, with plenty of indoor and outdoor space, a fantastic plunge pool and spectacular views. The location is ideal and just a short ride to the lovely St. Regis Beach Club and the Residents Beach Club- both of which are fabulous and where you will spend days on end soaking up the sun, beautiful beaches and weather. Another plus of this Punta Mita development is the fact that each condo occupies one full floor so it is extremely private. There are also a handful of private homes in the development, and overall, it is very quiet and a most relaxing environment, and significantly less populated that many of the other communities within the Punta Mita gates. The owners of this El Encanto unit are truly the best! They have been a pleasure to work with in every possible way. They are extremely prompt in responding to questions regarding the property and go out of their way to assure that every detail of your stay goes better than planned! Giovanni, the concierge, is also a dream come true. A complete gentleman, Giovanni is a concierge extraordinaire- arranging every detail - dining reservations, transportation arrangements, whale watching tours, surfing guides, arranging a private chef (Marguerite- who is exceptional and I HIGHLY recommend!!). Giovanni is a gem, a delight to work with, and helps to complete this vacation rental as top-notch! I think the highest compliment we can give to this El Encanto unit is the fact that we have returned two years in a row, and will absolutely be back again! This is an amazing rental and you will be thrilled to spend your time in Punta Mita is these gorgeous accommodations!

Map

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 beach clubs. 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 Clu just down the road. We like the St. Regis even better than the Four Seasons! The St. Regis deal is that for $30/day/adult and $20/day/child you get full use of the facilities. This cost is then credited back to you in the form of a credit to be used at the beach club's restaurants and bars.
