Our villa was built in 2005. It is one block from a beautiful beach in the Mexican fishing village of Punta Mita. We are less than one mile from the Four Seasons Punta Mita Resort and the signature Jack Nicklaus golf course voted the best resort golf course in the world in 2004 and 2008 by a major worldwide travel magazine.
We have three bedrooms, each with air conditioning, pure water system for the whole house, three private bathrooms with showers, outdoor shower, daily maid service, fully equipped modern kitchen, washer, dryer and outdoor patio and pool area. It is safe and secure and offers guests a wonderful village experience. There is also a little grocery store (Manny's) across the street.
Our home sleeps 10 and children are welcome. We have a private pool and wireless internet.
The house was everything we needed, perfect set up for our group. The house is just as described in the photos.
Punta de Mita is a sleepy little beach town, and it was exactly what we were looking for. We were a block from the beach, across the street from a small store, and a short walk to the small commercial area of town.
Getting around is pretty easy as well. There a group of cabs in the town center, and a cab for larger parties is just a phone call away. Mario gave us all the information we needed and then some, listing attractions, restaurants, cab companies, surf lessons, who to call for an authentic home cooked meal. If you could think of it, it was in the information brochure in the house. Anything outside of that was a phone call away.
Definitely a great place to stay for a quiet trip
And lastly, there were tons of towels. (something very simple, but often overlooked!)
The house was as good as it was pictured! The layout was great for family hangouts both indoors and outdoors, the beds were super comfortable and the house very well-equipped with towels, linens, and food basics. The location was one block from the beach, with a convenient little store right at the corner to grab snacks and beer. The outdoor shower was great for rinsing off after a day on the beach. We stayed pretty quiet during our stay but could not ask for a better location to stay in Punta de Mita.
A few tips (that are in no way a reflection on the host or house): 1. an hour-long cab ride from PV to Punta cost $650 pesos (about $53 CAD) but cabbies in Punta wanted $1000 ($80) just to Sayulita, a 15-min drive away. They have a monopoly in Punta so can ask what they want, so we ended up taking the local bus to the PV airport on our way back. It costs less than $8 CAD and took about 90 minutes instead of 60, well worth it! 2. Bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper. Mexican neighbourhoods are home to many roosters and outdoor dogs who like to break into pre-dawn song! 3. If driving or taking a cab, stop at the Mega or the Walmart outside Bucerias for food supplies en route, as food shopping is limited in town. This is especially true if you're a wine drinker, as the prices were inflated in Punta and the selection very limited.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
