About the Property

On The Beach, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Large Pool And Gracious Outdoor Living Spaces

Casa Torre is on the beach in Punta del Burro, one of Puerto Vallarta/Riviera Nayarit’s most desirable neighborhoods -- and beaches! It’s a private haven for relaxing, surfing, whale-watching, long beach walks, and getting away from it all -- but not too far away! Puerto Vallarta is only 40 minutes, and Punta Mita, Sayulita, and San Pancho are even closer. La Cruz and Bucerias are also nearby.

Constructed in 2015, Casa Torre is perfect for couples or a large family. Its 3 master suites frame broad views to the ocean and lush gardens -- and each suite’s 5-piece bath is a sumptuous surprise. The main floor master includes a private terrace, while those above share a large terrace -- and amazing views of the Bay of Banderas. The spacious 4th bedroom with private bath overlooks a lush front garden, soothing waters dripping from pond to pond, and the casa’s namesake, a stone bell tower. The suite is furnished with twin beds that can be converted to another king.

Outdoor living areas overlook the beach and include a large infinity-edge pool; huge palapa- covered terrace with seating for shaded lounging, whale-watching, and sunset cocktails; and outdoor dining beneath a classic wood pergola. Your stairway to the beach curves through beautiful gardens to a private, pergola-shaded seaside spot complete with hammocks!


Shared time indoors at Casa Torre will be spent in a super-sized great room with beautifully defined areas for living, dining, and kitchen -- and floor-to-ceiling views of the outdoor living areas and ocean beyond. The presentation-style kitchen includes upscale appliances, handmade copper sink, antique chopping island, and slab granite counters that extend to spacious serving, socializing, and bar areas. The dining area features authentic Mexican dining and serving furnishings, and a few steps below, the large living area offers tropical furnishings and Mexican decor. There’s whole-house air conditioning and water purification. Wifi is also provided.

Check out the virtual tour of Casa Torre at the link at the bottom of our owner story. Please note that the video link on Casa Torre's listing page is a composite of Casa Torre and the owners' home, the next door neighbor.

Punta del Burro -- you're here!

Car: Recommended

Your private casa in Punta del Burro is perfectly located for exploring the beautiful, fun, and surprising places and adventures of Riviera Nayarit -- or just hanging out in your own pool, palapa, or beach pergola! Punta Mita, Sayulita, and La Cruz are minutes away; Puerto Vallarta is 40 minutes. Anclote Beach at Punta Mita has a great restaurant collection -- also surf and paddle board gear and lessons. Nearby Punta Mita Resort golf courses are outstanding -- and the newer Littibu golf course is beautiful and surprisingly affordable. Sayulita and its quirky charm and popular beach are only a few minutes farther away. Lunch on the beach at Don Pedro's is as good as it gets. For a surprising adventure, drive a bit further up the coast and check out a polo match in San Pancho!

Driving from Punta del Burro towards Vallarta, La Cruz is home to beautiful Marina Nayarit, its popular Sunday Market, and more good restaurants. Only minutes beyond La Cruz -- on the main highway to Vallarta -- Bucerias has a fun tianguis market, art galleries, and more great places to eat!

Puerto Vallarta, about an hour's drive to Centro, is a beautiful city with walkable streets and an art-studded pedestrian Malencon stretching from Centro to Old Town. It passes the main plaza, where you can "detour" to Vallarta's lovely Our Lady of Guadalupe Cathedral. Cuale Island is another possible detour, a shaded and enchanting stroll. Too many galleries to visit in one day -- but you can hit many of them on Wednesday's Art Walk evenings. A favorite shopping -- and eating -- street is Basilio Badillo, extending from the Federal Highway intersection to the Los Muertos end of the Malencon.

Driving south from Vallarta, day trip possibilities include El Nogalito, Los Arcos, Mismaloya Beach, Boca de Tomatlan, the zoo, Chico's Paradise, and Vallarta's amazing Botanical Gardens. All worth a visit -- but not possible in one day! We often combine one of them with a trip to the Gardens.

 

Owner info

About the owner: Your hosts are from Colorado, but live nearly year-round in Punta del Burro -- next door. Retired design firm partners, they have built 3 additional homes in Punta del Burro -- as well as basically reconstructing their own home.

Why the Owner Chose Bahía de Banderas, Nay., Mexico:
Casa Torre's owners discovered Punta del Burro in the late 1990's -- after they had already purchased a small home on the beach in La Cruz. Mexico had been their family's gathering place for holidays since the mid 1980's, and now, even though the "children" were adults, all wanted to continue to come to Mexico TOGETHER -- with their young families! We were lucky enough to discover Punta del Burro while we were trying to decide what to do about our too-small home. A real challenge in those days, because the dirt road into the neighborhood changed its course and/or became impassable with every major rain! And then, as today, there was nothing at the highway identifying where that road might lead! It was basically access to a beautiful beach, a great surf break -- and a few homes scattered along and above the beach. We were also lucky to find a modest 8-year-old home on that beach that had scared everyone else away -- because of it's "design challenges." It was mostly unattractive, and it's small 1-bedroom living area sat on top of a maze of storage and utility rooms. Outdoor living area was nearly non-existent. But the challenges were solutions to our growing family's desire to gather as often as possible in Mexico -- and we just happened to notice that the house was on one of the most remarkable lots in the neighborhood! Amazing views, private access to the beach, and the ability to build a "new house" under the old -- even closer to the beach! It wasn't long after we settled in and built and sold a house on the upper street that we decided to purchase the property next door -- which is where Casa Torre now sits! We built 2 additional homes on the upper street before Casa Torre. We also own the adjacent vacant lot

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Very few vacation locations offer the unique benefits of Punta del Burro and Casa Torre. You are literally "away from it all" on a gorgeous beach -- but not so far to be inconvenient or to suffer any discomforts. The neighborhood is small and lovely, with a gated entry and 24-hour security. The beach is long and walkable -- and Casa Torre "owns" its own piece of it with private access and a shaded pergola. Casa Torre is luxurious -- yet casually furnished for comfort and convenience. Its walls and niches are adorned with colorful art and artifacts. Its kitchen is a place to gather and cook and drink and celebrate your wise choice of rentals -- or you can move your celebration outdoors to the large social palapa or outdoor dining room!
