About the property

Modern Home with private pool in tranquil Playa Litibu, away from the crowds

Playa Litibu is a small, tranquil community of stunning, private homes near popular attractions that is just a 30 minute drive from Puerto Vallarta's international airport.

The three story home sits on a gentle sloping lot just a few steps from the beach. The living spaces offer spectacular 180 degree views of the beach and ocean. With balconies running the length of the home, you will be able to watch the waves and the spectacular pink and red sunsets.

The top floor is the master flat - more than just a master suite. It boasts a large living room/ dining room with 4 meter ceilings and a fully equipped, modern kitchen. The master bedroom has a canopied queen size bed and the ensuite bath includes double showers and double vanity sinks. There is also a second bedroom with two twin beds and a half bath.

The second level has two casitas. Each casita has its own full bath and kitchen area. The large casita has sleeping for four, a full four burner stove and oven, and a dining table for four.

The second level offers a truly unique design of open air architecture. A large lounge space, containing a sofa and fireplace, is nestled between the casitas and adjacent to the pool and barbeque area.

All indoor areas have air conditioning and there are ceiling fans throughout the indoor and outdoor spaces.

This home offers onsite laundry, wi-fi throughout, and potable water (filtered through a state of the art filtration system). The private swimming pool, which is filled with salted water and does not use chlorine, provides an additional option to the beach.

Cleaning is included in the rental and is done twice a week. Arrangements can be made for additional assistance. Arrangements can also be made for a chef to come and prepare dinners each night.

About Myrna Mendoza

This home was dreamt, designed and built by a retired builder and interior designer who previously lived in the San Francisco Bay Area and New York City.

Myrna Mendoza purchased this house in 2011

Why Myrna Mendoza chose Litibu

This home offers the peace and quiet of a private pool and a deserted beach.

In the evening, you can walk a few minutes up the beach to watch the sunset while enjoying drinks and dinner at the delicious Litibu Grill. Or walk into town for some fish tacos. When you are ready for more activity, take a ten minute drive into Punta de Mita or Sayulita for restaurants, bars, massages and surfing lessons.

What makes this house unique

The most amazing sunsets can be seen nearly ever evening from the balconies.

Great Modern Home with Pool and Beach

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this home, for a week or longer, for the past three years! Each year, I am excited to return to this tropical oasis. The facilities are great and the location is ideal. It is a one-hour scenic drive from the Puerta Vallarta airport.

The property is quiet and away from the busy tourist traps. I enjoy quiet morning walks along the beach, lazy days by the ocean or pool and dinner, using the great gourmet kitchen, under the stars.

If you plan to get around, a rental car is a must. Day trips to Saulita and San Francisco (San Pancho) are a must! Check out the weekly market in La Cruz and dinner in Punta Mita, facing the water, is also a treat that should not be missed. The small town Higuera Blanca has a bodega where you can pick up the basics

Don't miss the sunsets from the balcony or, new this year, there is Litibu Grill (opened in 2017) at the end of the beach. Walk on down the beach just before sunset, order a drink, and watch mother nature show off her beauty as another day in paradise comes to a close.

Amazing location for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this private home in Litibu. The full kitchen, private bedrooms and pool were ideal. The house was clean and maintained well. It is located within walking distance of the beach which was basically private. In addition, it was only a short drive to restaurants and beaches in Punta Mita, Sayulita and San Pancho. We couldn't have asked for a better location. As a family of 5, with different ages and interests, it was the perfect place to relax and use as a homebase for our adventures.

Incredible place to relax and recharge!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this wonderful home and left wondering why we didnt live here! The home has everything you want to spend a blissful week including comfortable beds, gorgeous views, plentiful clean water, a wonderful kitchen, and an incredibly airy feel. Barely one block from the beach (an unobstructed block!) and a short car ride to some great restaurants in the small towns nearby, this home is perfect for the family getaway.

Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this lovely home and enjoyed ourselves tremendously. The accommodations were excellent and the owner of the home could not be more helpful. It is situated between two small towns with wonderful shops and restaurants or you could enjoy yourself staying home and grilling, with the pool footsteps from your room. The beach is beautiful and might as well be your own private beach, as we only occasionally saw other people. Sleeping at night, being less than half a block off the beach was wonderful listening to the waves crash. I highly recommend this rental to anyone.

My only word of caution is going out on a rental boat to snorkel, it was not worth the money or time as there were no fish unless you just want to enjoy a boat ride.
