Marea Alta means 'high tide'. This is appropriate as it is right off the beach! Our sister property, Marea Baja or 'low tide', is located directly below and can be rented together or separately, depending on your party's size.
This is a property that we've had in our family for about 10 years. We built it and decorated it ourselves and take great pride in the on-site staff. There is an infinity pool that looks out onto the water and is perfect for afternoon margaritas!
The bedrooms feel very private as they each have their own bathroom and are secluded from one-another. They also each have their own balconies with views of the ocean. At night, you are able to shut the sliding doors and turn on the air conditioning to stay very cool and comfortable.
The house staff includes a house manager, a professionally-trained chef, cleaning ladies, and night watchmen. They all speak English and any one of them can take care of anything you need.
Because this property is on the South side of town, it is a quieter area. However, you never feel as though you're out of the nightlife because everything is still very close, just a walk or cab ride away!
We are the Coates! We have had properties in Puerto Vallarta for over 20 years now and have always loved it there!
We split our time between San Antonio, Colorado, and Mexico and our preferred mode of transportation is our RV.
We built villas in Mexico with rentals in mind. We hired English-speaking house staff to help with any need and they are employed there full time, so they know the house, the area, and what it means to bring a luxurious feel to your vacation.
Please feel free to browse our own website for more information on us and our other properties:
Sara Horn purchased this villa in 2000
We chose to buy this property because it is located in a great area. It's close to town, without being in the middle of everything. It's also on a beach that is public, but feels very private. You won't have the annoying beach vendors bothering you here and you can sit out at the pool or on the beach all day with a beautiful view.
We renovated the house that was here before and decorated it ourselves with artifacts from around the world. This is our favorite place to have our kids and grandkids come for holidays!
Our granddaughter, Sara, handles all the reservations. As she is part of the family, she knows the house inside and out. She's also spent years in the customer service industry.
This property can be rented alone, or with its sister property that is downstairs from it for more bedrooms.
Both of these properties are extremely open and have views of the beach and ocean throughout the house. Even being open, there's a feeling of privacy and security.
Close enough to the PV nightlife to still be in the mix, but far enough away that you don't contend with the crowds. The beach below the villa is lovely, and we rarely saw anyone there.
I was pleasantly surprised by the clean, well-decorated interior, and the abundance of indoor/outdoor spaces.
Jesus, the house manager, took care of everything we needed, making for a stress free experience. We ended up eating most of our meals at the villa--the enchiladas and fresh fish were fantastic!!!
A top-notch vacation all around!
I arrived on a Tuesday with 3 other friends. Jesus, the caretaker of the house, greeted us warmly and remained at service the entire time. If we had a question or need, he was fully capable of providing a solution. The supporting staff, the cooks, maid and watchman at night, were also very splendid. We truly did not have a need unmet during our stay. I highly recommend staying at Marea Alta and would certainly stay again.
We loved the house and the staff was great. Close to town, private access to the beach and very well appointed. Highly recommended! And by the way we landed a 117 inch 300lb Blue Marlin while we were there which was a truly awesome experience.
We just spent the most delightful few days at an incredible beach front property just a few minutes outside of Peurto Vallarta, Mexico. The staff who take care of you are incredible making the experience over the top relaxing. The home itself is beautiful and in wonderful condition, clean and well maintained. I really can NOT recommend this property highly enough.
We have stayed at this home at least 4 times and each time it gets more wonderful. The accomadations are very good with all the bedrooms of large and equal size and the view is fantastic with being right at the waters edge. The staff at the house makes this home even better and have become like our extended family especially the house manager, Jesus.. Our grandson's birthday is the end of March and Jesus always gets hima special pinata and we have a wonderful birthday celebration. The cook makes very good food and pretty much anything you want especially great breakfasts, food of your choice, and dinners at your choice.
No worries about safety and you can walk into PV on the beach in about 30-40 minutes and its a $5 cab ride back, if you are lazy. The Coates family is great to deal with including airport pick up and delivery back and will do anything for your enjoyment.
We are planning to go back next year
Our stay at Marea Alta was unforgettable. The house, the view, and the beach was exceptional. The staff was amazing as well. They prepared delicious meals and they were consistently attentive to our needs. All around amazing experience and I will be sure to return!
Estrella Mar was breathtaking. I definitely want to go back. It was a perfect place to get away from all the stress at work. What I loved most about the villa was how the bedrooms open up towards the beach. It made it extremely relaxing to sleep hearing the ocean. The service was top notch. I wish that places I’ve stayed before were as complimenting as the people who assisted us at the villa. Paco made our trip easy, which is exactly what anyone wants in a vacation, easy. We would tell him what we were planning on that day and he would just make it happen.
I also think Estrella Mar would be perfect for a get-a-way wedding. It would be a perfect place where close friends and family can vacation together and have a beautiful ceremony.
The Villa is about a mile from the main part of Puerto Vallarta. You can walk via the beach from here or take a quick taxi ride. All of your needs are taken care of by English-speaking staff, including a house manager, chef, and cleaning ladies. Laundry can be done as often as you like, just give it to the ladies who provide maid service!
