Beautiful Views & Top Notch Staff
We spent a wonderful week at this special home. Booking and communication with the owner were terrific - and everyone was very helpful.
As others have noted, the staff really makes this place special. The home is very well maintained, and the food was excellent.
A few notes.... this house has a lot of steps, so if you are not prepared for a lot of climbing this is not the house for you. It is on multiple levels, each with steep staircases. Also, the pool is on the lowest level, and is often shaded, so if you plan to spend your days communing around the pool with a large group it is not ideal. We did snorkel off the rock beach at the bottom of the house, but I would only recommend it for strong swimmers. There is a nearby beach club that has a very nice sand beach. Like most of the houses in the area, this one seems to have been constructed and decorated in the 70's or 80's - and although it has not really been updated, it is in excellent condition and spotless.
Otherwise, the views are magnificent, the bedrooms large and very comfy, and the open-air living room is wonderful. There is even a treadmill I also used every day. Also, for what you receive (big house, wonderful staff) - we felt this house was a particularly great deal.
Thank you for your review of our house. It is very complimental.
However, I have some correction to make: the house was finished in 2000. The community of La Punta had its start in the 80-th.
We are now in the process of re-upholstering of the furniture in the dining and living open spaces. I hope it will look even nicer next season.
The pool location is chosen strategically to give more privacy to the bathers and a choice to sit in the sun or shade. And I agree - to swim in the ocean below the house is only for the strong and adventurous swimmers. I personally prefer our Beach La Escandida: it is comfortable, well equipped and in walking distance from the house,
It is hard to describe Madre Perla without talking about Henrique and the staff. What gracious individuals. All the meals were exceptional. Life is good when you start breakfast with a large platter of in season fruit. We had a wide age spread for our stay, 68 to 11. Very comfortable and clean. We paid for a car anddriver, which was a great choice. We all appreciated our time at Villa Madre.
Madre Perla is a most amazing and relaxing vacation destination! It is equipped with everything you could possibly need and views from every deck that pictures cannot describe. If you have an opportunity to visit, do not think twice! Perfectly manicured gated community, excellent staff, close to town. Don't miss out!
MUST DO Vacation
Our stay at Villa Madreperla was AMAZING to say the least - one of the best experiences of my life. The Villa is simply gorgeous; the view amazing; and the beauty is impeccable. The onsite staff (Enrique & Alejandra) were incredible hosts. From the moment Enrique picked us up at the airport until the moment he dropped us off they took excellent care of us. Alejandra's cooking was delicious - every single meal was new & fresh and Enrique is a true gem. It was fun yet relaxing and we enjoyed every minute of our stay - it was so far beyond our wildest expectations. Definitely a place I hope to return to again some day!
Unexpected overwhelming joy!
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but actually being there must be worth a million pictures. No photos can do this jewel of a place justice. The house, the view, and of course, the welcoming staff made our stay unforgettable. We will certainly be back, and staying at Madreperla will be on our minds around every opportunity to get away.
