Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time. It was a great girls’ weekend for four 40-something moms. We joked around that we felt like our children during our trip - for once someone was feeding us, cleaning up after us, and driving us around! The home was beautiful, comfortable, clean and fully stocked with whatever we needed. Fredi and (I can’t recall her name right now…I’m sorry!) were wonderful, making us margaritas, guacamole, salsa and breakfast every day. They were also so helpful to help coordinate taxi service for us to get into town. We felt pampered in paradise. Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven with us.

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about how welcoming this place feels.

Both Moday and Freddy took excellent care of us and the property

during our stay.

The breakfasts lunch and dinners were also exceptional. They prepared

a Thanksgiving Dinner which was also amazing.

If you choose this place the only thing you will most likely want is not to return home.

Thank you for a wonderful stay,

JIm & Cricket

Beautiful beach front home with great staff!

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful, the staff was amazing. Private beach, great food made daily with maid service by Mode while Freddie kept up with the property and made sure our glasses were full!

Very attentive to us and our kids making them special breakfasts and smoothies. The staff was excellent and just as big of a highlight as the fabulous home.

Always felt safe and very comfortable. Caught fish and snorkeled at the beach and spent countless hours in the beautiful pool.

A truly memorable and wonderful vacation.

Simply beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, comfortable and very relaxing. This is our second stay and we are already working on our next visit. Mode' and Freddie tend to your every need. Their warm smile greats you each morning typically with Mode' preping for breakfast and Freddie working the juicer for fresh juice. They are the heart of this home. I just can not say enough good things about this place! I hope we will be enjoying it for many years to come!

A Quiet Get Away

  • 5 of 5

If you want to get away from the big tourist towns and the crowds this is the place! We spent our first few days at an all inclusive and there is just no comparison. We all LOVED this place! It was so nice to get away from all the crowds. Yet be able to drive in to town if we wanted some more action. We had Mode cooked 4 dinners for us. I have 3 kids that I would describe as selective eaters. They all loved her food. It was the highlight of our trip. Freddie made us afternoon Margaritas and the kids smoothies. And the daily breakfast the was a spread better than the all inclusive. The only complain I had is I felt guilty not being able to eat it all. She made a hot sauce that was to die for (if you can stand the heat)!!!! Don't worry she makes one for wimps too. I came home and tried to make is just not the same.

We were a little nervous about the rooms. Ideally we needed a 4th bedroom. We were traveling with another couple (their son), my mom and our 3 kids. The room on the main level was so large my 3 kids and mom shared it with plenty of room to spare.

Make sure you take extra cash to hire Mode for dinners and you'll want to be able to tip at the end too. They work so hard! The other couple we went with didn't take cash and the ATMs seem to charge a fortune and Visa charged a transaction fee too.

We will be back!

My wife and I have been renting this amazing home for several weeks every year for 8 years now.

It is by far an away the most amazing property on the coast in Punta Mita. Period.

The owner maintains it in incredible condition and their staff are just the most wonderful people.

Thank you so much J&R! We'll be back next year!

One word. AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (three adult couples) stayed for ten days in early June. Everything about the trip was amazing. The house is located just north of Puerto Vallarta in a very private (gated) beach community. We all felt very comfortable and safe throughout our stay. So much so, that we rarely closed any of the doors and windows. The whole house opens. It's very inside/outside tropical living. The house is a beautiful Modern Vallarta Style Villa with three master suites all having great views of the pacific ocean. From the moment you walk through the garden at the entrance of the villa and pass through the front door, you feel very welcomed. The house has a very comfortable feeling and was built and decorated with an eye for detail. Every bedroom has a very comfortable king size bed and air conditioning. Each bedroom suite is large and tastefully furnished with linens you would expect to find in a five star hotel. The bathrooms are great. Everything feels private. The spacious open floor plan of the living and dining area open out to the exterior patio where you find a beautiful pool, landscaping, and the beautiful colors of the pristine ocean and beach. Private beach. The kitchen is located off of the dining area and opens to the back yard and pool area. We love to cook in my family, so we all spent time in the kitchen. It was great being able to cook while at the same time entertain at the pool. We cooked a lot and didn't have any issues with water quality. There was a large supply of filtered water available at all times. The house keeping and concierge were exemplary and attended to our every request without hesitation. The house is a destination in itself, but if you are the adventurous type you may consider renting car because you can't really walk anywhere. We found the easiest way to deal with that was to have the house manager meet us at the airport when we first arrived, we had rented a car and then we were escorted back to the house from the airport. We did the same thing in reverse when we left. That made things much less stressful. We had major issues with our phones almost the whole time. Of course we didn't think of that!

We would love to come back again and look forward to that day.
