|Minimum Stay||4 - 7 nights|
Imagine having all the luxuries of a 5 star resort but with the conveniences of home. That is exactly what you will get with our Oceanfront condo within the gated community of Punta Mita, Mexico. Punta Mita is just 40 miles north of Puerto Vallarta and is fast becoming a worldwide destination, assisted in part by the unbelievable success of the 5 star Four Season’s Resort and the brand new St. Regis Hotel which opened November 1st, 2008.
That said, it is important to note that although many private owners advertise they are located near the Four Season’s Punta Mita Resort, UNLESS the property resides WITHIN the gates of the Punta Mita development (not the town of El Anclote, also known as Punta de Mita), you will not be able to play either of the Four Season’s managed golf courses (Pacifico and Bahia), use the tennis courts, or enjoy any of the Resident's Beach Clubs (the Resident's Beach club shares the same beach as the Four Season's Hotel and is equipped with full restaurant, bar, 2 pools, hammocks, kayaks, children's playground area and massage cabanas) all designed exclusively for the residents and guests of Punta Mita. There is also a 2nd beach club (Kupuri) which has the best beach within Punta Mita. It offers food/drink service and a smaller pool and fabulous views. Owners must have the 'Premier' Membership to be able to use the Kapuri Beach Club, fitness center or to play the Bahia golf course. We do have it, which means you will have complete access to everything Punta Mita offers.
Our condo, located in Hacienda de Mita, is the only beachfront condominium development located WITHIN the gates of Punta Mita. At over 3500 square feet, we have 3 large bedrooms (plus a children’s bunk room), 4 ½ baths, pool, hot tub, private beach club for Hacienda de Mita owners and guests only, and an ocean that is just steps away. Each bedroom is well equipped with Simmons by Beautyrest pillow-top mattresses (Kings in bedrooms one and two and two queens in bedroom three), 500 thread count sheets, and oversized bath towels. Family room and master bedroom have Dish network so you will have all the channels and comforts of home.
The kitchen opens to the dining and living area and the huge 30 x 15 patio. The patio doors slide completely back leaving a 20 foot open doorway onto the patio. It is exactly what you would imagine an oceanfront condo to be. Hacienda de Mita also has its own private beach club for the use of our residents only. It has an infinity edge pool, massage area, plenty of relaxing sofas and chairs and a kitchen area for you to store anything for the day. Currently there is also beverage and food service courtesy of some of the local restaurants nearby. Of course, the entire development is guard gated 24 hours/day.
The location of Hacienda de Mita is perfect. We are less than a two minute walk to the town of Punta de Mita where 'restaurant row', an assortment of beachfront restaurants serving wonderful cuisine in a laid-back, 'tables in the sand' atmosphere awaits. There are a total of nine restaurants, each of them directly on the beach. If you prefer not to walk (or don't want to rent a car during your stay) we also have a six-seater golf cart which you can easily take anywhere within the gates (i.e The Four Seasons, Golf courses, Resident's beach clubs) or to the town of Punta de Mita next door. It is fully equipped with both headlights and taillights so you can travel safely at night.
If you‘re a golfer, your vacation just got better. Guests of our condo can enjoy either of the amazing Jack Nicklaus Signature golf courses (the original one was voted the best resort course in the world by Conde Nast Travel, June 2006), featuring the famous 'tail of the whale' hole (a 170-210 yard carry to the only natural island green in the world). And once you hit your ball, you are escorted to the green in an amphibious golf cart as the cart path is under water at high tide (it’s an amazing experience). Our guests also receive a reduced rate on green fees.
Another special feature of our condo is the services of our full time housekeeper. She works 8 hours/day Monday through Saturday and is also available to make breakfast,lunch or a snack during your stay (compare this service with other rentals as many charge extra for daily cleaning or cooking and it is not a full-time person). With this service, you will not have to lift a finger during your stay and it will truly be the 'topper' to a great vacation.
Last but not least, guests have complete access to our concierge service. Whether it’s airport pickup/dropoff, a gourmet chef brought to your home, a massage, or activity tour, our concierge will be happy to accommodate you. We invite you to relax and enjoy in a place not often found so close to home.
P.S. Many more pictures available upon request.
Here we are at the Resident's beach Club in Punta Mita.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2006
We had looked at properties in Cabo and Puerto Vallarta before visting Punta Mita and falling in love with it. We chose to buy in Punta Mita because it has great golf, great beaches, it is low density, upscale, private and secure. We enjoy having the small village in Punta Mita for good restaurants and excursions, and we do not have to drive and deal with traffic like in Puerto Vallarta and other large tourist destinations. We were very excited to buy property here and are very comfortable knowing our children can grow up coming here.
We have all of the comforts of home, yet we are on a beautiful beach vacation! We can keep in touch with email, and free long distance. We do not need to pack very much, as the condo has everything we need and there is also a washer and dryer for laundry. As a mom, the full time housekeeper is my favorite amenity. She cooks us breakfast and lunch and if I want to sleep late, she will get the kids breakfast. She does laundry ironing, all the dishes and other chores. It is nice to have a condo rather than a hotel room, but not have to be the one to keep it cleaned up. I dont want to cook, do laudry, load the dishwasher etc. while on vacation.
Our recent visit to the Gysin's condo in Punta Mita defied all imagination! We stayed in the condo with three other couples for a week last month—02/22/09-02/28/09. The condo itself was beautiful, spacious and luxurious with all the comforts of home…and the view, oh the view. We were able to enjoy all that Punta Mita has to offer—swimming, surfing, deep sea fishing, whale watching, shopping, exploring, while also getting in plenty of rest and relaxation. The meals prepared for us by the adorable and sweet Natalia were delicious and such a perk! Of course we were visited each day by Rosina from the Concierge who was extremely helpful in finding us excursions and even arranged for us to have massages at the condo itself. Although we had a rental car, it was practically unnecessary, because we either walked each evening to the wonderful restaurants lined up on the Punta Mita sand, or took the golf cart around the area. The owners are top notch, and have ensured that all details are covered for a top of the line stay. We plan to recommend the condo to anyone who will listen, and hope to make it a vacation place for us in the years to come. Thanks for sharing your wonderful home. We had the trip of a lifetime
Our group stayed in this condo in September 2016 and we had a wonderful time! Our group has been vacationing together for over twenty years and we decided that this was our best girls trip. The condo was beautiful and had fantastic ocean views. We also loved the convenience of being right by the pool. In addition, we went to both of the beach clubs and found the food and drinks to be excellent and the service prompt and friendly. And Berta, who cooks and cleans at the condo, is a real gem. She is a wonderful cook and is also so sweet. She took such great care of us and it made for a very relaxing and enjoyable vacation. In addition, the concierge services were very helpful. They took care of the grocery shopping for us, booked dinner reservations, and arranged for in home spa services. Truly a five star vacation and we can't wait to return!
We stayed in the amazing condo July 2016 and had the time of our lives. Beautiful accommodations, and Berta is truly incredible. The property offers fun and activities for all ages. We can't wait to go back!
We had such a wonderful time! Your place is beautiful and perfect :) We wanted to coerce Berta to come home with us, she's so wonderful and sweet (and the best cook ever!) There were 3 couples in the condo and we were never on top of each other or in anyone's way. We practically lived on the expansive veranda overlooking the pools and the bay. Perfect for sunset watching! We'll definitely be back!
This is an incredible condo, even better than the descriptions and the photos. The Gysins have made sure that everything is perfect--from the comfortable beds and linens, to the fully outfitted kitchen, to the games, books and inflatables. And they even called mid-week to make sure that all was well. The location is great, an easy walk to town, the beach, beach club and pool.
Punta Mita has quickly become our go-to for our family vacation. This was our 2nd trip to Hacienda de Mita and we hope to return again next year. If you can tear yourself away from Bertha's meals, the restaurants in the town are good and fun. We especially recommend Si Señor and Blue Shrimp. Sufi within the development is not to be missed. We went by taxi to Sayulita for the day for shopping and tacos. We also rented jet skis and paddle boards.
And the highlight for parents and children was taking a boat to the Marieta Islands for snorkeling, swimming and sunning.
You will not be disappointed by a vacation in this unit at Hacienda de Mita.
If there were more stars, I'd give them. Having been to the area and stayed at both Four Seasons & St Regis, we had a good idea what the area was all about. As you consider our comments, know that we are regular travlers, discrminating, but not "upitty"...
Hacienda de Mita is a fabulous place and the Gysin home is an oasis. The negative of high expectations is that you are often let down - BUT NOT IN THIS CASE. Despite the extremely high expectations, everything was exceeded. As advertised, the home is perfect in every way and each detail is tended to. From the towels, to linens, to furniture, to a coffee grinder, to wi-fi, to vonage phone - nothing was missing.
The Gysin Family are professional & courteous and quick to respond. As frequent users of VRBO with many great experiences, they are the best we've dealt with. Dealing with nice people is fantastic and provides great peace of mind. A common thread in other reviews online AND the onsite book is Bertha, the housekeeper/cook... Just Wow. Normally traveling with 10 & 11 yr olds is a trip vs. a vacation, but she changed our outlook and made everything EASY. The food she prepared was among the best we enjoyed in the area and was authentic and fabulous. Depsite less than stellar Spanish, we were able to communicate and her pleasant smile put as at ease. Wish we could have put her in a suitcase.
We could not more fully recommend this unit/family - and we look forward to returning in the future.
