Right on the doesn’t get any better than that! Book your stay now in this gorgeous ground level ocean side retreat.

Both suites have fabulous ocean views, sitting retreats, and access to our large private terrace. There you will find a beautifully appointed outdoor living, entertaining and dining space, complete with a large BBQ and private infinity pool. This large patio space is perfect for entertaining, relaxing and enjoying wonderful meals overlooking the panoramic views of Banderas Bay and the towering Sierra Mardre mountains beyond. Inside you will find a large living room, kitchen and indoor dining area. All have been professionally decorated with beautiful colours, furnishings and decor. The kitchen and master bath have both recently been renovated to provide an even more luxurious space. We love to cook and you will find our kitchen well equipped to meet all your culinary needs. The unit also has a whole-house water purification system, so it is fine to drink the water throughout the unit.

About Punta Esmeralda

At the secure gates to our beautiful community you will be greeted by a sign welcoming you to Punta Esmeralda Playa and Jardin; meaning beach and garden. And that is what you will find; a large sprawling community with a vast ocean front and acres of beautifully maintained tropical gardens. There is no other development like it in the bay! Enjoy full access to all of the large 8 public infinity pools, spread over the property, including the one steps from our terrace. All pools have wonderfully unique views of Banderas Bay and our community. You will also find a professional spa offering a full range of services, a complete gym and tennis courts. Also enjoy the many activities organized under the large communal outdoor palapa spaces, often including yoga and other fun activities. Going to the on-site Beach Club Restaurant is a must! At Punta Esmeralda, we have the privilege of having chefs from the best local restaurant in La Cruz, Masala’s Restaurant, working on-site at our Beach Club location serving fantastic breakfast and lunch creations.

About the Area

Just 25 mins North of the Puerto Vallarta airport, Punta Esmeralda is situated equal distance between the two quaint and beautiful seaside towns of Bucerias and La Cruz. Both are about a 25 min beach walk or a 5 minute car ride away. And both offer a vast array of dining options, shopping experiences and night life. The Sunday market in La Cruz, on the waterfront at the local fresh fish market and marina, is a must do. It features only handmade items by local craftsmen including, beautiful jewellery, items and decor for your home as well as an abundance of fresh food and homemade treats, all with live music and a colourful fun atmosphere.

Activities and Exploring

There are endless activities for all interests in and around the area. Horseback riding is offered right from the beach. Rent ATV’s or jet skis. Or take a boat excursion to the Marietas Islands for some bird watching and snorkelling or whale watching and deep sea fishing. Make a trip to Sayulita or Punta de Mita, both nearby beautiful seaside towns famous for surfing. And there are numerous top notch golf courses for golf enthusiasts. There is no end to the local entertainment and activities to partake in to make your holiday a memorable one.

Love Punta Esmeralda

  • 5 of 5

Nautilus 2 is newly upgraded kitchen and master bathroom. This is the way to go a beach front condo with private wading pool. We love Punta Esmeralda and this top of the line. It is clean and kept up nicely!

A Truly Special Paradise

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful, inviting, comfortable home this is. A week was not enough, and we are planning a return visit. The overall community of Punta Esmeralda was such a lovely, peaceful oasis.....just what we had hoped for....the antithesis of busy and congested Puerto Vallarta. Lunches on the beach in Bucerias gave us our fill of fish tacos, ceviche, and guacamole. The onsite Beach Club had wonderful food at reasonable prices. Everything in the unit was well thought out and pristine. The decor is especially lovely with unique art, extremely well-outfitted kitchen, and wonderfully peaceful ocean view from the livingroom and both bedrooms. We loved that the living room doors slide open all the way, because the patio is where we spent most of our time. The cozy and private sitting area off the master bedroom was our favorite place of all....comfortable furniture, ocean view, and plunge pool. Having the BBQ and additional dining table on the patio was perfect for cocktails and dinners outside. Also, the restaurant tips provided to us in the owner's notebook, proved spot on, as did the recommendation about the Sunday Market in La Cruz. And the on property workout room and spa were a delightful surprise. We both had excellent massages....just adding to our relaxation. We can't wait to come back!

Four of us (sisters/cousins) stayed in this condo for 10 days in March. From the moment we walked in until the moment we left, everything about it was perfect. The location is amazing. The whole property is gorgeous. The photos are self-explanatory and the unit is very large. We particularly loved sitting on the lanai outside the master bedroom. The beach cafe on site is a charming spot with excellent food and service. The condo owners are pleasant to deal with and correspond promptly. It was really hard to leave this piece of paradise and we look forward to returning.

Wonderful place and beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at Punta Esmerelda but first at this particular suite. Beautiful unit and I appreciated the well equipped kitchen with good lighting. Although I did not meet the owners, they have done a great job explaining the workings of their unit in the operation's manual. The private pool and terrace were wonderful and had good sun exposure for warming the water pleasantly. I particularly appreciated the water filtration system that the owner has had installed. It was nice not to have to fiddle with bottled water when cooking and brushing teeth. Highly recommended! Thank you to the owners, whose names I will omit from the review!

A Beachfront Paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived this felt like a true piece of paradise and a perfect home away from home! It is beautifully decorated and well appointed. The view is amazing and only a few steps to amazing walks on the beach to Bucerias. We enjoyed the private plunge pool and the lush grounds that make it feel more like a home than a large complex. There are plenty of activities to enjoy for any land or sea adventure. There are many great restaurants also. Rick was a pleasure to deal with and all the staff were so friendly. We loved our stay!
