About Zander Gladish

This is a family house managed by one of the sons (Zander). We are a SF Bay Area family and the parents now spend winters down at one of their other houses in the Punta Mita Area. Nina and John are the parents of 4 boys and they love to golf, the sun and the beach.

Zander Gladish purchased this house in 2015

Why Zander Gladish chose Nayarit

We have owned a house in the area for over 8 years and have fallen in love with the area. It has been expanding and everything has been improving and getting safer and nicer. This is the best place we found in Mexico to stay, relax and have fun. The water and weather are perfect and the setting is stunning. What more could we want!

What makes this house unique

The whole house is inviting and meticulously decorated for comfort and style. Before you enter you can see the ocean through the whole house. It feels very spacious and open. The inside and the outside seamlessly blend into each other. The infinity pool seems to bleed into the ocean. There is a great area to lounge outside in the sun and under lots of shade. Everything is brand new and was just built in 2014. State of the art but classic and chic. It is a great family house and awesome for friends and entertaining.

Beautifully designed home, everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

First of all working with the owner was a pleasure, and the management company is outstanding. The house has all the amenities that you would need and has been designed beautifully. The location is fantastic and the views are to die for. They were a couple hiccups along the way but we dealt with immediately by management and you could not ask for a better experience.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

This house is very nice and well maintained. The pool at the house and the views overlooking the ocean are incredible. The property is located in a very secure and affluent area that includes a St Regis Hotel and a Four Seasons. The Kupuri Beach Club is very nice and has a feeling of being at a high end beach resort. The property manager was super helpful and always quick to respond for anything we needed at the house. I would definitely rent this home again!

Exceeded our Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this villa for family members birthdays. We brought our 3 adult children and their significant others. The villa was better than we could have imagined and photos don't do it justice. We had other friends and family staying at the Four Seasons a few minutes away and they were jealous! Our concierge, Claudia, arranged everything we needed from having the kitchen stocked upon our arrival, to dinner reservations, having a golf cart delivered (our mode of transportation for our stay), to a chef coming in for a catered dinner for 15. The pool, views, living space, and all amenities were fabulous. The owner was kind enough to answer my many questions before our arrival. Highly recommended and we will be back!

Spectacular vacation property!

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a two week stay and everything exceeded expectations. Save for very weak wifi, which proved endlessly problematic, everything was superb. The house is perfect, the property offers every possible amenity and the service is exceptional.

One week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to Puerta Vallarta before and of course we were excited taking this trip but when we arrived at our vacation rental we were completly surprised by what we found there: An artistic 2 story villa where the stairs from the house lead straight down to a white sand beach which stretches a good mile long and was very little populated. Because we were a party of two we only occupied the top floor with a good size kitchen, a spacious bedroom with a king size bed and a generous bathroom and a large veranda viewing the ocean. Everything clean and in top conditions (yes, the electricity went out once but there is a generator who took over delivering us with light and cooling). The bottom floor was not used by us but it has a great kitchen and dining room and 2 large sized bedrooms each with a bathroom. We immediately loved the place, its very private, artsy and has great style. We promised us to come back and have a very restful and refreshing, sun-filled vacation here again... soon!

Breathtaking sunrise views

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 couples celebrating 40th birthdays at this fantastic property in October 2016. Best moment: sunrise view with a cup of coffee, overlooking ocean, mountain, golf course, infinity pool, in a private and relatively secluded location. Easy and beautiful bike ride or short golf cart ride to tennis, golf, beach clubs, town. The security is top notch. Soledad, our manager with Mita Residential, was attentive and sweet- the response to 2 minor issues was lightning fast and setting up airport transportation, grocery shopping, tee times, and spa appointments was a breeze. Our cook, Elisa, spoiled us rotten- her meals were incredible- this was the best splurge of our vacation and worth every penny and much more. Zander, the property owner, was very accommodating and a pleasure on the phone. House is set up to give plenty of privacy to each room with a wide open common area with amazing views and great amenities. We felt we had the greatest home on punta mita for our small party. Would recommend to all of our dear friends.
