Guestbook comments from the owner

'Simply amazing. My wife and i took our 3 children [9, 7 and 5] for family holiday in March. The place was spectacular; amazing sunsets, walk past the private infinity pool across your private grass yard directly to the beach. The beach was quiet and peaceful. We were ten minutes from the restaurants of Punta Mita and surf lessons at Wildmex on their private beach. Molly cooked breakfast and dinner....all fresh food and delicious soups and juices. We would definitely go back and should have stayed longer! Very secure and Miguel was also very helpful with organization and getting there from the airport [25 minutes].'

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.

Modern and Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

We (a group of six adults and one toddler) had an amazing time at this home. The setting, at the southern end of Punta del Burros, is perfect: quiet, no condos or hotels, great surf, white sand, and amazing sunsets. The rooms are spacious and clean; the house and pool are comfortable and delightful. Our toddler was comfortable playing throughout the house and enjoyed the pool and lawn. We recommend this for groups of all sizes. To note, the home isn't close to bars and restaurants so if you are looking for a party place, this isn't it.

This is the most spectacular get away for friends and family! We celebrated a week long Christmas vacation with our three children (14,12, & 9). Had a Christmas tree delivered and our children decorated with homemade shells. We surfed, paddle boarded, whale watched, snorkeled, swam in ocean & soaked in the fabulous hot tub while easily spotting whales, took long walks on beach, etc. Our daily meals were prepared and served in style. Children love this get away and are eager to return! Wonderful place to allow time to stop and absorb the water front beauty. Excited to return mid January with friend for more relaxing!

Almost a year later, we cant say enough about the property and the owners!

  • 5 of 5

It’s been almost a year since we spent a week in beautiful Caracol, located on the point of the private community of Punta del Burro, almost an hour north of Puerto Vallarta. It is a week that friends and family will never, ever forget, as my husband and I were able to exchange wedding vows at sunset on this beautiful property. The owners could not have been more accommodating, flexible and incredibly friendly. Their staff went above and beyond to assist us ... 100% professionals. The communication with both the owners of the property and staff was fast, incredible and reliable. Every day the home was beautifully maintained, and it was ensured that we would have a comfortable, relaxing week (yes, even with a wedding!) We have been traveling to this community for about four years now since our family also has property in the community, and we constantly recommend it to friends. In fact, our friends still say it one was of the best vacations and celebrations they have ever been apart of! If we weren’t in the midst of a possible move, we would be back again this holiday season! Thank you, thank you, thank you to the wonderful owners …

For travelers: We would recommend taking day trips to Sayulita and San Pancho - good beach, surfing, whale watching, margarita drinking, etc. For excellent dining, try heading to the small towns of La Cruz and Bucerias. Unless you are OK with staying put in the community and cooking meals, we would strongly suggest renting a car.
