About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

How does a 3800 SF villa (indoor/outdoor living space), private pool, private BBQ area, sun-deck, magnificent views of the Bay of Banderas and Pacific Ocean, all surrounded by one of the best world class destination resorts in the world sound? That is exactly what you can get when you rent our Porta Fortuna Villa, known as Zen Casita #13. Porta Fortuna is one of the newer, most upscale development within Punta Mita and is adjacent to the new 5 star St. Regis Hotel.

Rental of our Villa includes everything you would expect from a top rate resort residence along with all the benefits that come from residing within the gates of Punta Mita. Our guests can enjoy use of both Jack Nicklaus’ signature golf courses (at discounted rates), the tennis facility, the Resident’s Beach Club, the Kupuri Beach Club (absolutely beautiful and a wonderful soft sand beach for both walking and boogie boarding), use of our golf cart, and exclusive access to “Playa Fortuna”, Porta Fortuna’s own private Beach Club which offers full service dining from Sufi Restaurant, and an oceanfront pool. It is quite spectacular and the food is excellent.

The Porta Fortuna development is made up of 3 areas of homes. There is a row of Beachfront homes, a row of Ocean-view homes behind those and then 14 Zen Casitas. The land has been meticulously graded so that all properties have wonderful views. The Villas on the golf course side have larger yards and larger pools and since they face the Pacific, they also have a view of the sunset.

Our Villa is approximately 3800SF (indoor and outdoor living space) and offers 3 large bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The main floor master bedroom has a King size bed, private bathroom with an indoor/outdoor shower and a patio with a weeping water wall. Upstairs is a 2nd master bedroom with a King size bed, its own bathroom, a private balcony with beautiful ocean views and retractable patio doors and it also opens to the main upper balcony. The 3rd bedroom is also upstairs and has 2 Queen sized beds, its own bathroom, and also walks out to the main upper balcony. The upper balcony is 12 feet by 21 feet and offers a great place to gather with friends, take in the sun and views or use the private hot tub. Each bedroom has Four Season’s mattresses, 500 thread count sheets and oversized bath towels.

The Villa has an enlarged private pool, outdoor private BBQ, and 3 balconies. It also has granite slab countertops, 3” solid doors, marble floors, Viking and Miele appliances and a 50” plasma TV with Satellite, offering all the channels and conveniences of home.

Included in the rental rate all guests will enjoy daily housekeeping, use of our 6 passenger golf cart, and concierge services. Our concierge can take care of the details, including… airport pickup/drop off, stocking the villa with groceries, making a tee-time, scheduling a massage, surfing lessons, dolphin encounter, whale watching, having a chef come to the villa or just making dinner reservations. The staff will take care of your every need.

Punta Mita is a special place. Imagine having 3 Beach Clubs, 3 championship golf courses (2 Jack Nicklaus within the gated area and the new Greg Norman course which is just outside the gates of Punta Mita), top quality restaurants like Sufi and those at the Four Season’s, St. Regis, Si Senor, Blue Shrimp, Tuna Blanca and many more, spectacular views and a fantastic Mexican experience, all within a 5 minute drive from your villa. We invite you to come and enjoy a place that is like no other in the world.

Porta Fortuna paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this spacious home in the Porta Fortuna development within the gates of Punta Mita. My family of 6 has rented this villa on several occasions. I believe it is one of the finest units in Porta Fortuna- the furnishings are lovely and the home is in excellent shape. Kim and Tom are a pleasure to work with, and their on site concierge staff is extremely helpful, friendly, and they always go above and beyond in making arrangements for dinner reservations, groceries, transportation, personal chefs to cook beautiful dinners and excursions in the Punta Mita area. This home is complete with a lovely pool overlooking the Bay of Banderas and the golf course, and it offers lots of privacy. Being within walking distance of Sufi restaurant is an added bonus! The Residents Beach Club is a short golf cart ride away and provides everything you need for a relaxing day at the beach! We look forward to returning to this lovely home again soon!

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Tom and Kim's home, and we had the best vacation ever! The house is incredible, the view amazing, the grounds and restaurants fantastic - just can't say enough good things about this spot. The owner's beach club is fantastic, great service, great beach, great everything. Riding the golf cart everywhere you go in the private enclave is as good as it gets. Great concierge, great maid service, great staff all the way around. We are coming back again. Thanks for everything!!!!

Pampered in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from my first trip to Punta Mita and am already planning my next trip back. And when we go back, we'll definitely be staying in Tom and Kim's condo again!! The house is gorgeous, and you never have to leave Porta Fortuna if you don't want to. A short walk or golf cart ride to beautiful beaches and great restaurants. Or an hour away from Puerto Vallarta if you're looking for more adventure - all arranged by the wonderful concierge staff. Definitely recommend exploring the restaurants in the nearby village and having Gina come in to cook breakfast and lunch! Truly, this was one of the most relaxing vacations we've been on - due in large part to the amazing house and the wonderful staff who took care of everything for us! Can't wait to come back!!

A Wonderful Villa on the Golf Course

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at Tom and Kim's Porta Fortuna villa and we were not disappointed. The villa is well located in the Porta Fortuna enclave a short golf cart ride from Sufi's, the St. Regis, the Resident's Beach Club, tennis, golf, and the Four Seasons Resort. The décor is tasteful, the beds are super comfy, and the kitchen is first rate. Add the on-site pool and hot tub and wonderful decks to view the Pacific sunsets with your favorite beverage, and you have a real winner. We'll be back!

Amazing! Worth going again and again!

  • 5 of 5

My four girlfriends and I went and stayed in this villa at the beginning of June 2014. There is so much to say about this place. The location is wonderful! You have several beaches to choose from for boogie boarding or just laying in the sun. We all love Kupuri beach the best. They are all accessible using the golf cart that comes with the villa. The staff are kind and professional. We had a concierge that worked hard to make our trip exceptional! We also hired a chef two nights, Mario came to the villa and made two amazing meals! I highly recommend trying that option. The villa itself is clean and modern. The pool is a fun feature, along with the outdoor shower (there is also an indoor shower) attached to the downstairs bedroom! It is large and they keep it cool during the summer months. At the time we were there, it was the off-season so no one was on the rest of the property. It was quiet and relaxing. I highly recommend this villa! You won't be disappointed :)

Absolutely Incredible!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been to Punta Mita on three occasions and stayed in other villas. This property exceeded our expectations and was incredible! We have two kids ages 7 & 3 and they loved the place. Clean, beautiful and the pictures are a great representation of the property and the value you receive. It was very easy to book and the owners were incredibly accommodating to our needs and questions. I want to thank Tom and Kim for the hospitality and opening their vacation home to my family. We just got back March 14th and have already booked the place again for Thanksgiving. The concierge, Soledad Rivera was great too. She helped with all bookings and excursions and was a phone call or email away at all times. Use of the golf cart just made the whole trip way to convenient we loved it. Multiple access to beach clubs and surrounded by fantastic restaurants. Visit the St. Regis for a watermelon margarita...delicious. I guess I will share my secret place with the rest of the world!! Thanks again for helping the Johnson's make memories that will last forever.

Other Activities: Shopping, kayaking

Golf: If you're a golfer your vacation just got better. Our guests have access to both Jack Nicklaus' signature golf courses at discounted rates. The original 'Pacifico' course was voted #1 Resort course in the world in June 2006 Conde Nast Magazine and the new 'Bahia' course is equally as beautiful and more challenging. Number 17 is spectacular and just one of the many holes that are on the ocean. In simple terms, Golf in Punta Mita is World Class. There is also a Greg Norman course about 5 minute drive to Litibu. Several other courses available in Nuevo Vallarta and Puerto Vallarta.
