About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

3 bedroom 3 bath , beachfront condo professionally managed by local property manager. New,contemporary Mexican style decoration, 4th floor, on the beach, a fabulous view of the ocean from almost every room! Relax on our private balcony with views of Banderas Bay to the beautiful Marietas Islands. Enjoy walking on the beach or just take a nap by the gorgoues infinity pool, the perfect getaway from a busy lifestyle. Terrific surfing with many breaks nearby.

We are 10 min walk from the restaurant area where you can find wonderful Mexican homemade cooking, seafood, cold beer and a lot of simple but great food. Delicious take-in food available from Naef Cuisine, and fresh bread available at a nearby Swiss-run bakery. The local harbor is convenient for taking a panga for a day on the water or for some world-class fishing, diving, or whale watching. Surfing is good either directly in front of the condo or a bit south along the beach (there are several surf shops in town if you need to buy or rent equipment). Away from the noise and bustle of Puerto Vallarta, our condo is still only a short cab or bus ride away, as is the lovely beach resort of Sayulita.

About Caren Edwards

I have been in love with sailing and the sea all my life. In 1999 my husband, two children and I embarked on a 5 year sailing voyage throughout the South Pacific. Returning to life on land was difficult, but finding our condo in Punta Mita has turned out to be the perfect antidote. We love the convenience of flying in from California, arriving at our beautiful beachfront condo, knowing that we can be as lazy or active as we like. I know you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Caren Edwards purchased this condo in 2006

Why Caren Edwards chose Punta Mita

We chose Punta Mita because it is just the right size: just big enough to have all the amenities (restaurants, shopping, etc.) within walking distance, yet small enough to avoid the crowds and noise of a larger resort. We love the fishing village next door - it's the real deal. And our children love the surfing (so many spots close by, including the beach we face).

What makes this condo unique

I like the convenience of walking over to our 80' swimming pool to get in a few laps in the morning (I'm usually the only one in the pool), followed by a soak in the hot tub. Because we are located off the main highway from the Puerto Vallarta International Airport, it is nice to be able to grab a cab at the airport, stop off at the Mexican equivalent of Costco to stock up on food, and get delivered to our door. We also love the local restaurants, especially the seafood dishes.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Absolutely fabulous beachfront condo . . . quiet area . . . very nice facility - modern and clesn - bring beach chairs or just hang at the pool - we loved it!! Will definately be back!!!!!!!

Great family vacation!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was clean and pleasant. The property manager was quick and responsive and easily arranged a driver from and to the airport including a stop at the grocery store and lunch in Puerto Vallarta on the way to the airport home. Easy walk into town with lots of restaurants. Good beach. Loved the pizza place across the street.

Beautiful Condo and Memorable Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We invited our son and his girlfriend to spend a few days with us on vacation. We spent weeks going through all the various condo offerings in Punta Mita, and eventually selected this property. We made an excellent choice. The condo is exactly as pictured in VRBO, the views from the huge balcony are amazing, and the beach was literally a step away from the pool area. We could not have been more pleased. The pool and ocean were so warm, it was like sitting in the bath at home. There are numerous little "tienditas" (mini-stores) for all your needs within a couple short blocks. Even a "tortilla" stand a couple short blocks away. The town was a short 5 minute walk from the unit, although we ended up eating most meals in the condo. You can't go wrong with this unit. Thanks to the Edwards for making this a great and memorable stay.

Punta de Mita Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Great way to go have a relaxing beach trip to Punta de Mita! 4th floor lovely property with fantastic views of the islands, looking south across the Bay and even back east to Puerto Vallarta! Very easy less than 10 minute walk either up the beach or the road into anywhere in town where there are restaurants and shops. We (just 2 of us) did not rent a car -- did not want the hassle -- and did not bring supplies/stop to get groceries to stock up -- and we did great! The property is very well stocked with utensils and appliances if you want to cook in. Even though we did not use all of the rooms, they have individual climate control which would help with kids/multiple couples. Great place and experience!

A slice of heaven, with better views.

  • 5 of 5

Where do I begin? From the moment we opened the doors, we knew we picked the right place. Million Dollar Views from the large balcony windows. Views of the Marieta islands, views across Bay of Banderas, views of the beach, views of the surf. The property manager, Alejandra, greeted my family, gave a tour of the property, explained the Satelite TV, Internet, and Vonage phone system as well as giving advice on things to do in the area. My family includes twin boys, 7 and a 10 year old girl. The place was perfect for them, TV, games in the closet, wonderful pool, hot tub, and one of the most beautiful beaches in all of Mexico right out front. Powdery white sand with gentle waves to play in. Just down the beach are great surf spots and an easy beginer break for the kids surf lessons. We spent most of the time just lounging on the beach or in the pool. La Casa de Pintor, restaurant, is only steps from the door, great pizza and Margaritas! Just a 10 minute walk away is Restaurant Row with numurous dining choices from taco stands to FINE DINING. The Condo is smartly furnished and equiped with everything we needed to make our stay perfect. The highlight of the stay was a tour of the Marietas islands. Just a short 15 minute boat ride put us in about a pretty a place as I have ever been. We had snorkel gear including life vests for the kids. Clear warm water teaming with tropical fish. The memory of swimming through the cave to the "hidden beach" will last a lifetime.. Our only vacation regret was having to leave! We will be back!

The Best Vacation ever in a little bit of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We Just returned from celebrating our 40th Wedding Anniversay in Punta Mita where we stayed at this wonderful Condo. We are recidivists having stayed three times before but this was the best stay ever. This condo is lovely, comfortable, incredibly well appointed with everything that you need for a comfortable and easy vacation. The kitchen is open and spacious. The beds are VERY comfortable, a vaction must! The living room is cozy and inviting with the most spectacular view from the open glass wall that takes you out to the private patio. You will be treated to the sun rising over the mountains and sparkling on the bay where occasional whales swim by. The beach is truly the prettiest I have been on and I have been on many! The little town of Punta Mita is charming with great restaurants and delicious fresh seafood. It is a little bit of heaven here. In addition to all of this I can't say enough about how great it is to rent from Caren. She is warm, helpful, informative and replys promptly. She helped us find a cook to provide a home cooked meal for our guests. She also made many useful suggestions for entertaining our diverse group of guests. On top of it all we arrived to a card, roses and some champagne in honor of our anniversay. What was a great vacation was made perfect because of all of the assisstance from Caren. We will be back and back again.

Large, comfortable, and quiet

  • 5 of 5

The complex is very nice and has great amenities, but is also a good size (not too big, not too small). The pool area is great and features an infinity pool that is long enough for swimming laps and has a great shallow water area, complete with places to put up sun umbrellas (so you can be in the water and the shade at the same time). As well, there is a hot tub which is large enough for about 10 people to fit comfortably - the weather was mixed when we were there so we made great use of the hot tub to warm up after pool and ocean swims. At either end of the pool there are covered cabanas, both with tables and chairs. In one of the cabanas is a propane BBQ, wet bar, bar fridges and bar stools. There is lighting so that you can use these facilities at night.

There is easy access to the beach from locking gates on either side of the pool deck and the beach out front has nice, soft sand and great swimming. There is wave action, but again, the perfect amount (some waves, big enough for a little boogie boarding, but not so big you are afraid to go swimming). There is a shower for your body and feet at either entrace to the beach, so you can clean off the salt/sand before entering the complex.

The unit itself is large and expansive, with great bar seating and a large dining table with eight chairs. There is a comfortable living area with a sofa and arm chairs. There is additional chairs in two of the bedrooms that we moved to the living room to provide additional seating. A large deck runs the entire front of the unit and it has a couple of lounge chairs, a small dining table and chairs. There are also ceiling fans on the deck, as well as plenty of fans in the unit. There is also A/C that is controlled separate in the living/dining room and each bedroom - this worked out great so we could 'customize' whether we wanted A/C or not. We chose no A/C since we loved the ocean sounds, breezes at night.

The beds and linens are comfortable and there were plenty of towels - both for bathing and for the beach. The kitchen is fully equiped with everything you could need to cook and to make fabulous cocktails (a blender, of course).

The location is very good as it is quiet at night/morning, but you are close enough to the village to walk to any dining or groceries. The area seemed quite safe, even if it is very undeveloped in parts.

The owners of this unit are great and very easy to work with when making arrangements. We would highly recommend this place!
