Welcome to Casa Canta Rana, a gorgeous beachfront villa on the north shore of the Bay of Banderas. Located just 20 minutes north of the Puerto Vallarta Airport and five minutes from the Four Seasons Resort at Punta de Mita, we offer the ideal locale to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the Mexican Riviera.
This magnificent villa is designed to give you the ultimate beachfront experience and indoor/outdoor living of the highest standard and all the possible amenities that you could expect.
We are fun-loving, adventurous, and well-traveled people that understand what makes a place special. We designed and built this villa from scratch with an intense attention to detail. We believe we've created a small piece of paradise, and we work hard to create an extremely special experience for our guests.
Thomas Beebe purchased this villa in 2000
After visiting several places in Mexico, the decision about where to build was easy. There's something magical about this part of 'The Mita'. We appreciate the privacy and security of the area as well as the amenities available in the surrounding neighborhood. If you want to enjoy the Mexican Riviera and truly appreciate its splendor, you should come and see for yourself why there was no question this was the house for us.
Every small detail matters in this house. There is a simple elegance to the house that makes it irresistible. The property combines old-world Mexican charm with modern amenities and luxurious indoor-outdoor living.
We stayed here for one night on our way further north. Had we known what a fabulous place it was, we would have rearranged our schedule to stay longer. In our brief time at Casa Canta Rana we were wowed by the views, impressed by the hospitality, comforted by the security and thrilled to be there! Our kids loved the pool, loved the beach, loved everything! We'll figure out how to get back here for a longer stay next time.
We had an amazing stay at Casa Canta Rana. The setting was spectacular and the views went on forever. We spent time relaxing by the pool, gathering shells at our beach and just relaxing in the open spaces scattered throughout the property.
Our children LOVED the pool and the private path down to the beach. We also spent an afternoon down at the beach club where the kids had several pools to choose from and an endless stretch of beach to play in the sand and calm ocean waves.
The villa itself was immaculate, spacious, and well-maintained by an extremely friendly and attentive staff. We particularly loved the spacious and flowing feeling of the property - the outdoor and indoor spaces merge together so beautifully that you always feel connected to the warm Pacific breezes and fragrances. Hard to describe how beautiful and peaceful the setting. The staff were available for anything and cooked some delicious local meals for our family.
We also loved the privacy and protection of the El Farallon gated community - with only a handful of houses and two security gates armed 24/7, we always felt very safe and secure. The property entrance has a 12 foot tall fence with a security code to get in - all of these factors made us feel safe, secure, and private.
All in all, we had a fabulous time at Casa Canta Rana and are already planning a return trip - we would highly recommend this property. The peacefulness, safety, and luxury (without feeling pretentious) was more than we ever could have asked for. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us... we will return!
Once you pass through the gates of Casa Canta Rana you have a sense of surrender to its charm and natural beauty. The well appointed amenities and design keeps you close to nature with all the comforts of home and then some...the staff is amazing. The spectacular sunsets, the rhythmic sounds of the surf, the ocean views and occasional whale sightings created many special moments. Our week spent at your villa will always be remembered as one of our best getaways ever!
I was lucky to find out about this place. I've stayed in this area (as well as Vallarta itself, 40 min away) many times at at many places This is #1 without a doubt. This place is 100% private (we skinny dipped all day), on cliff over ocean at one of the best surf breaks in area, and the staff makes a big difference. They're fantastic! Some of what makes CasaCantaRana unique is that you are completely unaware of anyone around you or nearby (feels like being alone on Kauai or on an island), the staff has a great cook & bilingual guy (Jose) that made our trip super special. They can set you up to dive, snorkel (right off house!), go to islands, food, etc. PHENOMENAL...try this place and you will not be sorry you did!!!
What a fantastic experience to stay at Casa Cant Rana. The amenities are first rate and the staff are truly exceptional. We were treated like royalty. Can't wait to return.
