Views from this condo are the absolute best in La Misíon de Mita, a newly developed property in the quaint town of Punta de Mita. The mission style architecture and beautifully maintained grounds are abundant with greenery, mango and palm trees, and pink and orange hues of bougainvillea. The grounds are private and feature a large dark-bottomed pool, spacious hot tub, hammock area to swing gently under coconut palms, outdoor tables, private patio with a water fountain, and a large roof deck. All floors can be accessed by stairs or elevator. There is also a poolside gym with state of the art of exercise equipment, a massage table, and space for yoga.

One side of the complex features bay views and beach access and the other opens to the local neighborhood for an authentic cultural flavor of Mexico and access to small tiendas, a Saturday market, and home based taco shops.

The white sand and turquoise blue ocean are just steps from the entrance to the condo with a gentle surf break and excellent paddle boarding across the cobblestones. Two surf rental outfits are at the northern end of the beach. The beach stretches for miles and is great for long walks. The waves upon the shore are usually gentle and safe or all ages. Punta de Mita has amazing restaurants, many with tables in the beach sand, and everything is walking distance. It is a safe and friendly authentic Mexican fishing village with local flavor.

About Kristen Addicks

My family vacationed here for the first time in 2011 and fell instantly in love with this town. We have driven all through this big and beautiful country and this is our favorite place of all. Our kids learned to surf on the wave right out in front. We have hiked and biked and snorkeled and relaxed. The food is fabulous, the people are friendly, and we feel very safe here. We kept returning year after year and knew we wanted to continue to do so, so it made sense to buy this top floor condo with the best views in the complex. We hope to retire in this unit someday so we have furnished it with lots of love. We know you will enjoy it too. We have brought grandparents, uncles, cousins, and friends, and all want to return as soon as possible. We hope you will as well.

Why Kristen Addicks chose Emiliano Zapata

La Misíon de Mita is new, beautifully designed, and carefully maintained. We love the peace and privacy and all the amenities: large pool, hot tub, roof deck, poolside gym, hammock area, and safe and secure parking and storage - as well as complex filtered water, which means you can drink from the taps without a worry. The property is spacious and the full time residents are friendly. The staff is respectful and professional, and keep the grounds meticulously maintained. Everything is within walking distance: the beach, restaurants, and local neighborhoods stores. Even the bus stop to adjacent towns. I would not want to be anywhere else.

Punta Mita Hospital, a 13,000 square-foot full service state-of-the-art facility, by Los Angeles-based doctors recently opened just walking distance from the condo.

According to recently publications about the area: “Punta Mita Hospital is a clear indicator of increasing growing demand for this exclusive resort destination."

What makes this condo unique

* This is a safe area of Mexico.

* You will not be bothered by people selling their wares on the beach out front of the condo.

* La Misíon de Mita has filtered water in the entire complex. You can drink water right out of the tap.

*New, clean, private hospital, opened by LA doctors, is close by.

Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in Punta Mita. The pictures didn't prepare me for how lovely this sweet, spacious condo truly was. First and foremost - the view. WOW. We couldn't get enough of it. The condo features those triple sliding glass doors on either side, so you're able to open up the condo for an indoor/outdoor living type of feeling. We loved that the patio furniture was padded and included a lounge chair. We spent every morning and every evening out there watching the waves and taking in the scenery.

The kitchen has everything you need - including full size appliances and drip coffee maker. The king size bed was incredibly comfortable, and the blackout shades were a nice touch. The bedroom AC was essential, we used it on a nightly basis to take the edge off the room and cool it down. The décor focused on lovely handmade wares that balanced out the condo perfectly adding a warm, homey feeling. I searched Sayulita high and low for the painted pottery bowls Kristen had on the kitchen island! We also appreciated having the washer and dryer - I didn't think we'd need to wash any clothes, but it came in handy. The fans throughout the space also helped keep the air flowing so it wasn't so hot.

The walk to town was easy and the locals were incredibly friendly. We loved eating at Si Senor's - pricey but worth it. Most of the restaurants on the Malacon have wait staff that speak English, but basic Spanish was enough for us to get around the area. We also frequented Theresa's taco stand right outside the back gate and would get food to go to watch the sunset from the balcony. If you want to go out to the islands go find Captain Rudy on the way to the Malacon, he was terrific. We ended up booking him for a fishing charter the next day where we saw dolphins and sea turtles swimming in the early morning out near the islands. We brought our fish to a local restaurant where they cooked it for us for less than $15 US, it was delicious! The binder of best eateries to visit and tips on how to work things throughout the condo was very helpful. The grounds are beautiful - we enjoyed the pool and hammocks almost on a daily basis and the grounds crew took exceptional care of the property.

All in all, this one was of the most relaxing vacations we've taken and I attribute it to just how wonderful La Mision de Mita is! Our hardest decisions of the day consisted of pool or beach, margarita or beer! Thank you Addick's family, we hope to visit again some day!

Spectacular sunrise view. Piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We took a quick Christmas trip down to this quaint village. We were welcomed by a sparkling, nicely appointed, perfect condo. The views from the terrace were nothing short of spectacular. The walk to the beach took maybe 30 seconds. Our hosts covered all the basis to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. We loved the local flare. 5 stars!

The place was clean and well kept. The view from the deck is gorgeous. The ability to walk into town was a huge bonus. Would (and have) recommend to others.

Soothing Sounds

  • 5 of 5

We just spent our spring break in Punta Mita. La Misión de Mita was a perfect spot to relax seaside. This unit is as it states and the views were exceptional with the decks opening right up to the ocean and the soothing sounds of the surf. The unit was very comfortable and the extras (beach chair, boogie board, towels) were an added bonus. We sure hope to come back!

We loved our stay at the La Mission de Mita!

  • 4 of 5

Very close to the beach access and restaurant row. At the beach there we more great spots for surfing, boogie boarding, and lounging. The view off of the balcony was breathtaking and the room was tastefully decorated but a little small for a family of four. We enjoyed the hammocks and the pool/hot tub a lot and everything was clean and well maintained. The apartment manager, Dani, was very helpful and accessible. We absolutely loved our stay! Thanks so much!
