About the property

Four Bedroom Oceanfront House, Very Private With On Site Staff

Casa Corona del Mar is a 5 star villa, located in magical private community Punta el Custodio, a small and safe vacation villa community 1 hour north from Sayulita (2 hours from Puerto Vallarta airport). The very impressive open living area under a big palapa will leave you breathless, and if not, the view from the big sundeck with its many seating areas will.

Casa Corona del Mar (Crown of the Sea), is situated on the northern side of Punta el Custodio. Corona del Mar is spectacular and luxurious in every way, from its gorgeous cliff side setting with unparalleled coastline and sunset views to its sinfully relaxing sparkling infinity pool with waterfall, kid's pool, and outdoor palapa. It's hard to imagine a more peaceful and relaxing setting... You might get so comfortable you'll forget about surfing.

The villa is decorated in warm colors, creating an extremely pleasant and peaceful feel and comes with a combination cook/housekeeper who prepares the 2 daily meals and does your laundry in the modern in-villa laundry room. No cooking, no shopping, no laundry, no nothing... just pure relaxation.

Come to Casa Corona del Mar to immerse yourself in the sun, the sea, the waves, the luxuriant vegetation and the warm ocean breezes.

Casa Corona del Mar comes with its own, private maid Mon-Fri from 8 AM-4 PM, Sat-Sun from 7:30 AM- 12 AM. There is an on site staff with an English speaking on site manager, 24 hours /day security at the gate. Punta el Custodio is a place of magical beauty. It is built on a rocky promontory, the fertile ground (Punta el Custodio is formed by lava pouring into the sea) makes the place filled with lush vegetation.

There is a big main community pool with views over the ocean under a 4 centuries old Chatala, or figg tree, only 150 meters from Casa Corona del Mar.

Punta el Custodio is located right next to an impressive estuary, full with wildlife. A must for nature lovers. You can cross the river mouth of the estuary at low tide to Playa Tortugas, a 12 mile long secluded undeveloped beach. From Casa Corona del Mar it will only take you a 5 minute walk to get to Playa Tortugas!

At Punta el Custodio we offer a food plan. This includes 3 meals a day, prepared by the staff, and all the shoppings for ingredients for meals plus drinks, snacks and fruit are done by the staff. Only liquor and wine are not included, ask for details. Additional cost for the food plan for 1 week for adults is $230 USD, children 5-12 $115 USD per week.

Internet access in our villa is not guaranteed.

While there is intermittent Internet access within the villa, the monthly data allowance is

limited to 2 GB/month. While adequate for email and reading your local newspaper, the

allowance can be rapidly exhausted by viewing video, downloading music, or by

frequent access to social media, such as Facebook. When the allowance is exceeded,

access is restricted to “dial-up” speeds, which, in effect, means no access at all.

Our houses have fairly reliable 3G cellular access* in some parts of the houses, with no

limitations and at no cost to renters. International data plans are now offered by many

cellular carriers, either at a reasonable additional cost, or already included in your

existing plan.

We highly recommend that you contact your cellular carrier before your rental begins,

and activate a data plan for Mexico that meets your needs. This way, you will be able to

access the Internet on your cellular devices, or you can use your smart phone as a

“hotspot” so that you can access the Internet on non-cellular devices such as laptops

and tablets.

*At busy times of day, such as mornings and evenings, when the local cell towers

become overloaded, the 3G signal can sometimes weaken or vanish. The villa is in rural

Mexico, where cellular service is still in its infancy.

Come to Casa Corona del Mar for a highly affordable taste of 5 star private luxury and natural beauty.

Rentals from Saturday through Saturday!

My name is Michel Striekwold. Originally from Holland, I moved to mexico to live and work over here in 2006. In 2008 I started my own villa rental company in Puerto Vallarta. In 2009 I visited Punta el Custodio for the first time, me and my little family were invited to spend the weekend with one of the owners. From the moment we entered the gate we knew we were in a very special place.. We have spent more than 40 weekends or more since then in all the 14 houses at Punta el Custodio, and everytime again we feel we are in paradise. Since 2012 I focus only on 8 villa rentals at Punta el Custodio, Casa Lazuli is 1 of them.

MICHEL STRIEKWOLD purchased this villa in 2004

Why MICHEL STRIEKWOLD chose Compostela

This is one of the most exclusive properties at Punta el Custodio. The furniture, beds, everything you can think of is of top quality, and very well taken care of. Marta, your private maid, as the complete staff at Punta el Custodio will take care of you!

What makes this villa unique

Majestic open living area, sundeck with many seating areas. True luxury.

This neighborhood of villas is beyond expectations! The staff here is very friendly even with a language barrier. We where very pleased with the food plan. Marta kept out bellies happy and the house clean! We visited in early feb and where visited daily by whales, sometimes multiples giving a very dramatic show. The beach across the estuary was like being on our own deserted island. This is a destination that will be visited again!

Luxury in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Corona Del Mar is even more spectacular than the photos suggest. The house is immaculately maintained with decorator level design. The open air living allowed us to connect with the gorgeous lush landscaping. Each bedroom was very comfortable with soft linens and beautiful views. The staff was kind and helpful. The meals they prepared were consistent with what we understand to be consistent with local cuisine, which added to the feeling of not being in "tourist Mexico." The community is amazing with cobblestone paths winding through lush jungle leading to the community pool or beach. The beach is spectacular for all it offers: small waves for kids to boogie board or body surf in, a river to float or swim in, an estuary to kayak into, large waves for adult boogie boarding or surfing, shelling, a long flat beach perfect for jogging, and utter tranquility with almost no one sharing it with you! We WILL be back!!

This is our second visit to Punta Custodio and are first to Casa Corona. We were the organizers our group of 4 couples and could not have been happier. It is always hard to find a property that makes everyone happy - equal bedrooms, great common space etc... Casa Corona fit the bill and more - this home is amazing and an incredible of our friends commented that they kept expecting Mick Jagger to walk through the door. We participated in the meal plan - which I highly recommended. Our typical day would start with coffee and a surf, returning for a wonderful breakfast, nap/read, lunch then more surf, dinner and relaxation. The meals were amazing - we had some food allergies and a pescetarian in the group and this was not a problem for our amazing cooks. We are already talking about when we will return. Thank you Michel, Ismael and everyone at Casa Corona

Beautiful ocean view vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic property! We were a group of 7, but could have easily had space for 9. The house has amazing views, great pool and comes with a wonderful cook and house cleaner. There is also a larger community pool just steps from the property. It is a little more remote than some of the other vacation spots but totally worth it. Michel was able to arrange surfing lessons for the entire family (youngest was 9 at the time). However, they only took us out on smaller surf days and I wouldn't recommend surfing in this area if you are a beginner. There is a property manager on site who can help with all your needs. We would definitely plan another vacation at this home.

Our group of 6 adults loved this home. Booking with Michel was a pleasure. He answered our many questions so we knew what to expect but the trip exceeded all expectations. The home was spacious, clean and comfortable inside and outside. The food prepared by the housekeepers was so delicious and plentiful. We had fresh fruit, juice, seafood, pork, chicken and all the wonderful Mexican specialties. We spent most of our time at our pool enjoying the stunning ocean view. The landscaping and grounds are very well maintained.We enjoyed walking around, going to the community pool and walking to the beach. We would definitely return to this home and have recommended it to friends and family.

Beautiful location for a relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property perfect for a large group. We were a group of 9, with 6 adults and 3 children spanning 3 generations. Casa Corona del Mar is a perfect place for a family or friends to spend some time together and still have enough room to engage in various activities. There's a TV room with plenty of board games available for everyone to convene together. The home and environment is even more breathtaking than the pictures convey. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and the staff were amazing, preparing wonderful meals daily and taking care of our every need. This home is just a short walking distance from the beautiful beach, and is relaxing in every manner. We got the meal plan, and our refrigerators (indoor and poolside) were stocked daily with beverages including beer, sodas, bottled water, etc. If you should desire other drinks, you can purchase hard alcohol or wine at reasonable rates in their local office/store. All other supplies should be picked up en route from the airport, as the property is in an isolated area perfect for relaxing, but with no markets close by. Our kids (7 & 8 years old) enjoyed the freedom of being able to meander around and explore the property and gated community without the constant need for supervision. Very safe and amazing. Definitely look forward to visiting again.

Because there are only small grocery stores in the area, we offer the "meal package".

The meal package includes three meals per day, prepared by your private maid/cook, as well as abundant beverages and snacks, and bottled water. The beverages include excellent Mexican beer, various soft drinks, and freshly squeezed orange juice. All the shopping will be done by the staff.

Cost is $230 USD per week for adults, $115 USD per week for children 5-12.

Nayarit is a state of bountiful produce, and every street corner has a market selling fresh fruits and vegetables, both grown locally and brought from other parts of Mexico. Our cooks are plentifully supplied with the freshest of produce, dairy products, and meats. And of course there is the sea, where fish and shrimp and even oysters are brought in daily. Our housekeepers are very flexible both in catering to individual tastes as well as to special dietary requirements. We encourage you to discuss meal planning with them at the beginning of your visit, and thereafter on a daily basis if you like. They want to prepare all the meals in accordance with your tastes and preferences--hot or not, etc.

Ismael, our on site manager, sells a variety of wines and liquors in his little store in the Office. The package represents a terrific bargain in terms of price, quality, and convenience.
