About Kathy Young

I am a 75 year old grandmother, who is soon to be a great grandmother. I have been coming to Mexico for 50 years. I love Mexico. I grew up in Lubbock, TX and have been in Odessa, Texas for all of my married life. I am a big Texas Tech fan.

Kathy Young purchased this villa in 1986

Why Kathy Young chose Bahía de Banderas

I was one of the original owners in Punta del Burro. When you see the area, you will know why I fell in love with it. I bought it when there was hardly anything there. Now we have cobbled stone roads, underground utilities and 24 hour security. We have all the bells and whistles.

Wonderful private place to relax and refresh!

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed in PVR from Aug 3-10 and it was everything we imagined! This place was spectacular for what we wanted - to get away and rest.


Having someone cook breakfast and dinner was AMAZING! They have you choose the food, they do the shopping and are wonderful chefs.

Having laundry done was a HUGE bonus!

The ocean was warm and we got to go out into it almost everyday.

The palapa with the hammocks was SO WONDERFUL!

The pool has a shallow area that our youngest child could hang in and still fun for the older ones. Great to relax in when the ocean wasn't appealing.

The rooms were great although we were not in them much.

Juan, Baly and Coby were very kind, quiet and helpful.

There is a resort nearby - almost walking distance - that had a wonderful spa and was a fun place to go to get out of the house for the day. Lots of animals around and nice facilities.

Surfing and paddleboarding were good - nice place to rent them nearby.

**This does not have to do with the home but: Even though the weather forecast said rain everyday it only rained at night and never once changed our plans.


The 2 upstairs rooms are not connected to the main house so you have to walk outside and downstairs to get back inside the main house.

The home is about 20-30 minutes from Nuevo Vallarta and a little further from Puerto Vallarta so be prepared to drive.

There is nothing close to walk to so be prepared to stay at the home most of the time.

The mosquitos were horrible - we finally had to start eating inside the house instead of in the beautiful outdoor seating because we would eat get about 30 bites each minimum at every meal.

The seating in the living room isn't suitable for a ton of people so most of your group time will be outside.

Overall we would go again if we could get a mosquito situation - it made the trip hard to fully enjoy but we spent most of our time on the beach anyway which made it worth it.

Beautiful staff, property, and setting...we’ll return!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in July. Our group of 6 adults and 5 children couldn’t be happier with our vacation. Baly, Juan, and Coby worked so hard to make sure the house was in stellar condition and that we were well fed and hydrated. And the best part was that they always did it with a smile. Thank you Kathy for sharing your home. I can’t wait to go back.

Wonderful family trip!

  • 5 of 5

Great location beach-front on a private 24/7 secure beach in a wonderful, small neighborhood. Home is in great condition. All the grounds & amenities are well taken care of, looked after and in perfect working order. Location is absolutely second to none for a relaxing beach get away. What puts it over the top is Juan and the staff. Friendly, knowledgeable and hard working...they made the stay 5 star. Great job Kathy you have raised the bar! Can't wait to get back.

Awesome place to reconnect

  • 5 of 5

This house has a cute and colorful style. Stunning view and clean home. Bali, Juan, and Coby were incredible and helpful hosts, and Bali is a superb chef! We enjoyed lounging in the pool, and relaxing in the hammocks. The allycat cruise was the highlight of the week. The ocean was beautiful, but not ideal for swimming as the shore was pretty steep. However, there is an incredible beach 2 minutes down the road. This is the ideal place to relax and reconnect.

  • 5 of 5

Juan, Baly and the staff were absolutely incredible! They were extremely reliable, on time, and all-around lovely! Baly’s food was incredible! In fact, I threatened that I might never leave :)

Suffice to say, we will return!

Punta del Burro is a beautiful, safe, gated community on one of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico. This will be one of the most relaxing vacations with Juan and Baly cooking, making drinks and taking care of you. You will never want to leave.
