About the property

4 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths

We have been renting in Punta Mita for over 12 years and were the first with VRBO in the area.

Villa Lunada is a oceanfront 5500 sq ft. private estate on the beach offering luxurious accommodations in the exclusive Punta Mita Resort at a fraction of the cost of comparable properties. Inside the gates and just minutes from the Four Seasons and the St. Regis, Villa Lunada offers access to the resorts’ world-class golf and great restaurants, while providing a private vacation experience in a stunning location.

Enjoy the magic of Punta Mita and feel the soul of the Bay of Banderas as it unfolds before you with the absolute best views on the peninsula. Completely relax and enjoy the natural surfer-chic decor and luxurious features of this estate. Soak in the beautiful sunrises and sunsets that are the magic of Punta Mita.

With five bedrooms and accommodations for up to twelve people, Villa Lunada is perfect for families, groups and couples. Located just 40 minutes from Puerto Vallarta International Airport, travel to and from the villa is easy and we can easily arrange VIP airport pick-up and a new Suburban and driver while you are here.


The master suit is one of the largest in Punta Mita with its own workout room and living room and a large luxurious private bathroom with a double shower that opens full-length onto the ocean- so you have an outside/inside feel.

There are two oversized en suite guest rooms as well as a “teen pod” with a king-sized and 2 single beds. The large Chef’s kitchen is perfect for cooking classes or elaborate dinners. The 1.5-acre compound has an organic garden for your fresh salads and a Napa-style palapa for al fresco dining. With two pools, a hot tub, and a large front yard with trails leading down to the beach, there is plenty of room to roam.


Your every need will be met with daily maid service, a personal concierge, a cook and a houseman. Take it easy by the pool or let our concierge plan a full day of activities for you and your group.

You’ll have access to the white sand beaches and restaurants of the St. Regis and Resident’s Beach Club as well as the world-class Jack Nicklaus golf courses and 16-court tennis center at the Four Seasons. Take advantage of the Aquasports Center at the new Kupuri beach cub, where you can rent stand up paddleboards, take surfing lessons or enjoy a sail around the bay on our Hobie catamaran.


Activities include golf, surfing, mt. biking, and a professional sand beach volleyball court on the estate. Follow a short trail down the front yard to El Faro, a world-class right point break.

A magnificent stay at Villa Lunada

  • 5 of 5

When we booked Villa Lunada for a 50th Birthday celebration we only had a small idea of how incredible the experience would be. From the moment we originally booked every detail was looked after prior to our arrival from airport shuttles, food preferences, activities, etc. Upon arrival every detail was flawless executed and the Villa (really a large gorgeous house) itself is spectacular. Each master bedroom was well appointed and meticulous, the food was authentic and healthy and the bedroom and pool views make you never want to leave the house.

Horacio, who oversaw all of our details and desires, organized everything from surfing, dinners out, beach tours, etc and was there whenever we needed him with the best attitude ever!

Villa Lunada exceeded all of our expectations.

Amazingly relaxing and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

My time at Villa Luanda was so welcoming and refreshing -thanks to the Warnicks and the amazing hospitality they provided. The home & property was absolutely beautiful and provided the tranquility & respite that I was looking for....

I truly appreciated the welcoming staff, the delicious prepared meals, and the coordination of excursions. I would definitely return to this magical oasis. Thank you.

Tranquil top notch A+ accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Lunada is one of the most beautiful relaxing places I have stayed. The property is beautifully maintained. The flowers, garden and water fountains really make you feel like you are in paradise.

When we arrived at the villa, we were greeted by Horacio who had scented towels to refresh us after a long day of travel. Horacio made our stay so easy. He planned all our meals (the food was so good we never ate out), booked our trips, drove us to nearby beach clubs, gave us a history of the villa and area, pointed out surf spots and most importantly, made us his signature jalapeno cucumber margaritas. I wish Horacio could accompany me on all my vacations! The staff at Villa Lunada was A+.

The owners of the property were superb hosts. They really made sure our vacation was exactly what we had envisioned.

The layout of the villa is great for a group of friends or families. My friend and I stayed in the huge master suite. The king bed is amazingly comfortable. I loved falling asleep to the sound of the waves and waking up to a view of the sunrise.

The location of the villa is great for surfing, hiking, swimming, whale watching and recharging your battery. I would definitely recommend staying at Villa Lunada, especially of you are looking for a tranquil place.

While staying at the villa, we took surf lessons, took a boat to the Marietas, visited the local beach clubs, took a trip into Sayulita and most importantly decompressed from our busy lives.

Villa Lunada is a very special place. I will definitely be back. Thank you Susan & Greg for making our trio so wonderful!

Everything was perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our positive experience began with emails with the owners and then the concierge Belen, who took care of our every request in a professional, friendly manner. Everything was perfect, the location of Villa Lunada above the waves could not have been better. To make things even better, waves showed up when we did! Uncrowned, easy to access waves. All staff members were friendly and accommodating, from the cook to the laundry person. Food was amazing, in fact there was too much good food! There was easy access to golf courses AMD the running path was a wonderful plus. So much to do in the area. Belen took care of boat charters, surf board rentals, golf reservations, etc. we shall return

Villa Lunada was a divine vacation experience. The villa has a masterful layout, grounds immaculately landscaped, with a garden area, sand volleyball court and infinity pool overlooking a grassy area to the ocean. The view, of Banderas Bay, faces south to Puerto Vallarta and brings an exquisite morning sunrise and memorable sunset, not to mention moon rise. The daily personal staff was always smiling and eager to please. They prepared healthy breakfasts and lunches; the refrigerator was always well stocked for snacking. Our concierge, Belen, was like a family member. A delightful person, she saw to our needs and desires perfectly. If we had a question she found the answer. A dinner chef was available if we so desired--and did for two nights. We were treated to wonderfully fresh fish and an assortment of beautifully prepared Mexican dishes. Within the gated community we had access to gorgeous beaches and plenty of activities for children (and adults!). Thank you to the gracious owners for allowing us into their wonderful villa!

Beyond Exceptional

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at Villa Lunada was beyond exceptional from start to finish. Booking was a breeze and the owners provided us with so much useful information and personal service that we felt well taken care of even before we arrived. Our jaws dropped several times upon arrival starting the moment we drove past the gates into the exclusive community and excitement continued as we toured each new area of the 1.5 acre property. Stunning views, gorgeous furniture and decor, exquisite design and plenty of space for two families with kids. The owners thought of everything and spared no expense when building this one of a kind property. Rooms are spacious and very well appointed but it's the extras like the beautiful outdoor living areas, infinity pool, organic garden and sand volleyball court that really give Villa Lunada that wow factor. The master suite and bathrooms were also some of the best I've ever experienced. I felt so fortunate to be able to enjoy this property and all of the special amenities it has to offer and thoroughly enjoyed the delightful staff as well. Hoping to return again soon!
