About the Property

Beautiful Open Palapa Style Villa With Infinity Pool

Villa Estrella is a gorgeous oceanfront villa set in stunning nature, surrounded by ocean on 3 sides, incredible natural surroundings, 14 km of unspoiled sandy beach, superb surfing. 2 swimming pools, including heated infinity pool on the ocean's edge.

Fly to Puerto Vallarta and get picked up, we are 65 miles north, a bit past Sayulita, at Platanitos, in an area of stunning beauty, away from the masses of tourists, high prices, traffic and vendors, set in wondrous ocean landscape, with the Sierra Madre Mountains behind us, an eco preserve estuary brimming with fish, turtles, and exotic birds.

Villa Estrella is an open type, architect designed palapa designed for you and nature to commune in wondrous style and luxury, live the soft warm ocean breezes, blue ocean is everywhere, three bedrooms, three baths.

A stunning salon with 30 ft high ceilings, roofed with an incredible palm thatch basket weave, festooned with romantic lighting for the night. The villa is furnished and decorated with comfort, imagination, warmth and style. Bring your ipod and let your musical dreams soar on our space filling stereo.

Rosa the queen of your kitchen will take care of you; feed you, clean for you. Ismael your host will attend to all your needs for adventure, excursions or any other requirements you may have.

Our meal plan provides all the food snacks and drinks; your refrigerator is stocked just like at home. Rosa cooks up tasty home cooked fare, all you need do is sit down and enjoy. Come to be pampered, come to be spoiled, come to relax.

Come to see the whales, come to help release the baby sea turtles, come to surf, come to ride horses on the beach, come to hike in to the waterfall, come to fish, it’s all here.

Come for the real Mexico, no tourist traps here, see the simple villages, go to a fiesta in the town square, go to the village market, go to the rustic restaurants in Platanitos for mesquite grilled snapper, camarones al mojo de ajo, icy beer, barefoot in the sand. Watch the Mexican families and the children, it’s absolutely wonderful.

Visit the historical Spanish naval port of San Blas, see the old fort and cathedral, buy trinkets in the square. Go to the market. San Blas is the port from which the King of Spain launched all exploration of the Pacific Northwest, and resupplied all the missions of California.

Villa Estrella is one of 15 lovely villas on the peninsula known as Punta el Custodio, a beautiful village-like community with winding cobbled footpaths, vehicles are discouraged, gardens and jungles predominate, many houses almost invisible behind the masses of palms and flowers.

Excellent management ensures that the villa is perfectly maintained and that guests are treated with attention, respect and dignity. There is 24 hour support, gate access is controlled. Villa Estrella is in one of the safest regions of Mexico, theft and crime are unknown in this community, the local Mexicans are warm hearted, friendly, outgoing and charming.
