DIRECT BEACHFRONT ~ RELAXING, PRIVATE POOL, BEAUTIFUL DECOR

Punta Esmeralda Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Beautiful, professionally decorated 2 bedroom Beachfront townhome with a private infinity splash pool in the desirable Punta Esmeralda development 20 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

Perla 2 is a couples dream vacation home. Quiet, private, amazing ocean views, with an ambiance perfect for relaxation and reconnection.

Perla 2 is the closest unit to the water in Punta Esmeralda. Unobstructed full front view of Banderas Bay, with direct access to the mild ocean surf only yards away. Leave your Ambien at home. The sound of the ocean at night is truly the best sleep-aid we know of! This ground floor unit has one of the largest lanais and private splash pools in the well-managed complex.

Because of its unique ground floor position, on the water and near the south end of the complex, Perla 2 is very quiet with limited foot traffic or distractions. The common area pools and other public ammenities are close by, but no distracting noise or activities are heard. It's like being in your own private villa!

Warm, inviting, full of original local artwork and color.

We limit our rentals to only 12 weeks per year and cater primarily to couples. This greatly reduces wear-and tear, and keeps our home in excellent condition. There is a big difference in condition, decorating and ammenities on units that are used primarily for rental income, and private homes like ours that are well cared for and have limited rental use.

The Punta Esmeralda development is approximately 5 years old. It is an exceptionally well designed and secure property unlike anything on Banderas Bay. The complex has its own 24 hour security staff, gated entry, and closed-circuit security cameras throughout. Even at peak occupancy, Punta Esmeralda never feels crowded. The 228 unit complex is a combination of high rise condos with nice views that are up on the hills away from the beach, and private villas and townhomes directly on the beach. Perla 2 is one of a limited number of private beachfront townhomes that are available. Check the Punta Esmeralda location map at punta-esmeralda. com/townhouses_map.php for details.

Our bilingual (English/Spanish) local property manager can assist with any neccessary services you may require, including airport pick and return, local transportation, linen and maid service, activities, in-room spa and massage services, and any advance preparations. When you arrive, your Perla 2 vacation home will be open, clean and ready for your stay.

All basic supplies such as paper towels and paper products, cleaning/laundry, soaps and kitchen supplies are included. Bath and beach towels and all linens are freshly laundered before and after and ready for you. Stop at one of the close local markets like Walmart or Mega on your way to Perla 2 to stock up on your favorite vacation foods and beverages, and you are good to go!

NOTES: Please note that due to the large, non-gated, 3.5' deep ground level splash pool on the lanai, Perla 2 is not recommended for families with toddlers or small children. The quality art and furnishings make this unit most suitable for 2 to 4 adults looking for a relaxing, upscale get-away. Perla 2 is a 3 bedroom townhome, but is offered only as a 2 bedroom rental. The extra bedroom is on the opposite end of the living area, and does not affect the quality, usability or living flow of the unit in any way.

Hi! We're Pam and Kevin, owners of Perla 2 in Punta Esmeralda. We've been married for 30 years, and we work together as partners in our printing business in Los Angeles. Now that's togetherness!

Kevin Berg purchased this townhome in 2006

We have owned vacation properties in California and Hawaii in the past, but Pam really loves the ocean and wanted to get closer to the water. It doesn't get any closer than this! Buying a place like this in southern California would easily cost over 3 million dollars to start, so that was obviously way, way out of our reach. Mexico still has some great values, but we were also looking for a more traditional Mexico. Not the high rises of Mazatlan and Cancun, or the plastic Americanized Cabo. Puerto Vallarta still feels like a Mexican fishing village, and the people are really friendly and nice. It is also one of the safest parts of Mexico, and we have never been concerned about security while in PV.

We choose this place as a haven from our busy LA lives. We mostly just sit and enjoy the view of the bay. But we love going into the local towns for dinner and there is great dining. If we feel really adventureous, then there are great day trips in the mountains to local villages and sights.

Located thirty minutes up the highway from Puerto Vallarta is the complex of Punta Esmeralda.There we find Perla 2 on the beach. This condo is decorated in excellent art with compatible furniture. It is a comfortable and relaxing suite with a pleasant view of Bucerias and the Bandieras Bay. Its a 20 step walk from the deck to the sea shore. There is a nice little infinity pool about 20 feet by 6 feet - pleasant and delightful. The grounds at Punta Esmeralda are immaculate. There are multiple swimming pools, two tennis courts and a work out room. There is wifi available.
Bucerias and Cruz de Huanacaxtle are nearby and offer all manner of good restaurants, open air markets and entertainment.

Great Place

Wife and I stayed 7 days and loved it. One easy stop at Mega on our way to this lovely apartment in our rent a car got everything we needed for breakfasts and afternoon appies. Easy check in at gate to our designated two car parking spot. The property is a clean, modern private home, and is complete in all details - much more than a hotel with kitchen. As good or better than the pictures and write ups. Enjoyed morning sunrises with fresh coffee on the huge deck, walk the beach and property, and dips in the plunge pool. Watched pelicans dive after rippling waves of fish while we read on the lounge chairs. Cab ride to either Bucerias or La Cruz for about 80 pesos to lovely restaurants (Marks Bar and Grill, Bucerias) or fun pubs (Philos in La Cruz, Friday nights) , and back to the peace and security of our holiday home. Good shower, watch the lights of Puerto in the moonlight and into the air conditioned comfort of the king bed. Went to the restaurant by one of the pools and got lovely takeout. Walked the beach for 40 minutes to Antonis in Bucerias for breakfast one day.
Easy to book with Pay Pal and owners Kevin and Pamela.
Should you go here? No! Stay away and leave it all for us.

Owner's Response: Hard to respond to this review! I think Tim might be moonlighting as a travel writer. I might have to offer him a freelance job to write about Perla 2 when we revise our VRBO listing in the future. Thanks Tim and Fran. Canada stays cold a long time - come back soon!

EXPECTATIONS EXCEEDED !!!!!

We just returned from spending a week at this OUTSTANDING property. We can say, without a doubt, that it has been our BEST experience so far renting via VRBO (and we have had a few).

From the moment of completing the reservation, the owner was always extremely helpful and prompt (and at times quite patient) in answering every conceivable question, making the whole process easy, cordial and hassle-free.

Upon arriving at the property, we were thrilled to find the Appartment in excellent condition. It was spotless, well cleaned and everything was as advertised, if not better. You truly have everything you need to make a perfect vacation in a privately ownned residence. The place shows that the owners put great care in decor and maintenance and upkeep (quite a challenge in a beachfront property).

Additionally, the extremely friendly property Manager was always there (or just a phone call away) making sure we had everything we needed.

The greatest asset of the property is it's unbeatable location, in a very safe gated community and literally steps away from the beach and the ocean. The view from the lanai can only be described as "Paradise". We spent most of our time there enjoying the view with a few good glasses of wine.

Congratulations on your fantastic property, and most importantly, thank you for your very professional service.

Book early, because this place goes fast !! We certainly hope to be back in the near future, to enjoy our new favorite Riviera Nayarit paradise.

Owner's Response: Michael and Aida chose to spend their spend their 20th anniversary at Perla 2, so that is a great compliment in itself! But Pam and I appreciate the kind words. Hope to see you again in the near future!

As we sadly returned to a slow ending winter in Canada, our memories of Perla 2 warmed our spirits. Your Townhome exceeded our expectations and we would love to enjoy a return visit. The listing description was more than accurate and we immediately felt right at home. We have enjoyed talking with friends about our trip and have nothing buy praise about our experiences.

Great family vacation spot

My family and I just returned from 9 fabulous days at Kevin's home. The apartment was extremely spacious and well laid out. The amenities were first rate. The apartment is located on the beach with a wonderful splash pool on the deck. Our children are 5, 4 and 13 months. It was so nice to be able to have the kids swim without having to pack up everything. I cannot say enough great things about the place and its location. A dream property.

The Punta Esmerelda estateis georgous and well maintained.

We just booked a return trip for the same dates next year.

Owner's Response: We're very happy that Mike and his family enjoyed their holiday at Perla 2. Although, we have to wonder how much relaxation time you can get with children that are 5, 4 and a toddler! The splash pool on our lanai really is nice for people that don't want to lug stuff to the pool areas. Thanks for the great review, Mike. We've got you down for next year!
