About the property

Sandy Beach Front, 3 Bedrooms, Ground Floor (Sleeps 6+)

Forget your worries and experience the tranquility that this beachfront condominium offers. Located in Punta de Mita, home to the fabulous Four Seasons Resort, it is just 25 miles northwest of Puerto Vallarta at the northern tip of Banderas Bay. The weather is truly sensational with average daytime temperatures reaching into the 80's. Enjoy the spectacular views of Banderas Bay and the beautiful Marietas Islands. There is an infinity pool with heated Jacuzzi surrounded by lush landscaping, a shade palapa, and outdoor barbecue area for your enjoyment.

The 2500 square foot condominium offers all the amenities to make your stay memorable. The three bedroom, three bath unit has a large living and dining area. There is also a full laundry room for your convenience. The gourmet kitchen comes equipped with all the accessories including ultraviolet water filter, but if cooking is not in your vacation plans this is the place to be. Punta de Mita is known for its 'Restaurant Row' which is a collection of nine wonderful beachfront restaurants just a short stroll from the condominium. You can dine on the freshest seafood and sip a cool margarita while enjoying the beach views.

If you are into sport-fishing this area is home to trophy-size black, blue, and striped marlin, yellow-fin tuna, sailfish, dorado, rooster fish, and more. Local charters are available and easily arranged. Charter a boat to the Marietas Islands where you can snorkel in the warm waters and see numerous species of colorful reef fish. These islands are also home to several species of endangered birds.

Punta de Mita is a surfer's paradise with over 30 excellent breaks around the point. The local surf shops can help you with your rental needs as well as provide lessons. Boats are available to take you to the ideal surf spots. Or you can choose to sunbathe by the pool, take a leisurely stroll on the beach, or just relax under a shade palapa with a margarita or cold beer.

If this condo does not quite meet your needs ask about other one, two, and three bedroom units I have available in this same area.

About Dean Dilday

Why Dean Dilday chose Emiliano Zapata

Great beach and poolside retreat

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here with our three little ones (aged 5, 3 and 1), great access to the pool and beach. Lots of fun for parents too with surf right outside and easy rentals on the beach. Enjoyed the town too, further away from the gated resort seemed much more interesting and much more reasonably priced.

Things that would have helped - a welcome/info book about the apartment and area as well as some more balcony furniture. It seemed a shame to eat indoor when the view was so spectacular.

All in all, we love it there!!

Fabulous place! Loved the pool and beach. Lots of beach to walk. Beach walk best at low tide. Numerous restaurants available nearby. Spacious, clean, well outfitted and safe. Would return.

Beautiful condo in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family holiday. The property was clean and well equipped. The beach was sandy and great for swimming, and the pool was clean with plenty of seating.. It is a short walk or drive to the many excellent restaurants in town. Wi-Fi is good and each living space has a individual air conditioner.

The only cons would be that you need to replenish the water as our family of 6 used up the jug provided in only two days. Also, the 3rd bedroom does not have a closet so clothes need to be shared with the occupants of the 2nd bedroom.

We would certainly return to this property!

Gorgeous condo, beautiful views!

  • 4 of 5

What a gorgeous condo! The unit is level with the pool so it has the most spectacular of the water and easy access to the beach. The location is off of the main street of Punta Mita, which we preferred, but a quick and easy walk to "town" within a few minutes. No car needed. A great restaurant is directly across the street, and a small store with most of the essentials is right around the corner. Surfboard and paddle board storage is right in front, and the condo had all the amenities we needed including reliable internet. The owner and property manager were so sweet, and very easy to work with. I'd highly recommend staying here and we will definitely return!

Just returned from a fabulous trip to Punta Mita. The whole trip was excellent. We chose not to rent a car and were happy about that. The condo was perfect. Great location and all the ammenities. It was very clean and comfortable, amazing views, fabulous pool area and even a paddle board! We rented another paddleboard just down the street and had a lot of fun trying to surf the waves out front of the condo. Having both internet and Vonage phone made communications very easy, so next year we realize we can stay a little longer! The local restaurants were good and we frequented the tienda for fresh tortillas and produce, bought red snapper from the local fishermen and used the grill on the deck to make our own fish tacos! Walks on the beach, watching the surfers and paddleboarders while relaxing on the can't go wrong

Great place --thanks for sharing. We will definitely be back and hope to bring some friends with us.

Punta Mita is great. We felt very safe here and did not notice any differences compared to our prior visits over the years. The condo is perfect and has everything you need. We recommend Punta Mita to all of our friends from the east coast.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you continue to feel safe in this area. Thank you for spreading the word to your friends that this is a wonderful place. Despite what the U.S. and Canadian media keep reporting, this part of Mexico is safe and absolutely awesome. We would not live here unless it was.

Car: recommended

Puerto Vallarta Sightseeing is Just a Bus Ride or taxi. Also the eclectic and super fun town of Sayulita is on 20 minutes away and well worth a day trip or a great night out!

Must see the Marieta Islands and go whale watching from late November through March!

Punta de Mita is well known for Sport Fishing and there a many great local fisherman who will gladly take you out to chase down some of the local offshore giants. Tuna, Marlin, Sailfish and Dorado are common as well as Roster fish, jacks and many other fish inshore.

Surfs Up!! You can't go far from the condo without seeing surfers out in the water or shuffling around town with a board under their arm. There are many surfs spots within walking distance as well as short boat rides. Just ask me and I will point you in the right directions or ask the local surf shops and they will be happy to help you out.
