About Mariette

Due to the international nature of our business, we have travelled all around the world visiting many wonderful and enjoyable places. One of those visits took us to the Punta Mita area, north of Puerto Vallarta. We found the beauty of the area breathtaking. The impossibly blue waters of Banderas Bay and the gorgeous peaks of the Sierra Madre mountains, not to speak of the abundance of great architecture in the area more than enchanted us. A short two hour flight from our permanent residence, it seemed the ideal get-away. As a result, we immediately dove into an exploration of the possibilities, which seemed endless. Villa Koi is the end result of our explorations and deliberations.

Mariette purchased this estate in 2009

Why Mariette chose Punta Mita

We were deeply moved by the beauty and serenity of the Puerto Vallarta north shore and decided on day two of our first visit that we must build our dream house on these shores. That same year we acquired an ocean front property with its own private sandy beach, hired one of the most prominent Mexican architects, along with the top builder in the area to realize our dream. Our guests, and we ourselves, find it hard to leave the serenity of Villa Koi, with its beautiful koi and lily ponds, lush tropical gardens, infinity pool and whirlpool overlooking the sapphire waters of the Bay of Banderas with its frolicking whales, wild dolphins and giant turtles and the peaks of the Sierra Madre mountain range with its lush tropical forrests and fascinating wildlife.

What makes this estate unique

We enjoy the many extraordinary restaurants dotting the area, visiting the colorful small towns and fishing villages and shopping their busy street markets, exploring the many art galleries of Puerto Vallarta, strolling the Malecon with its exquisite sculptures, but we mostly enjoy the serenity of Pontoquito and Villa Koi, the superb food prepared by our chef Lucy Alvarez in the company of our friends, and the attentive service provided by our house-manager Javier Espinoza not to speak of the most relaxing seaside massages to the lulling sounds of crashing waves.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The pictures of Villa Koi do not do it justice. It is beautiful beyond words and truly better than the finest resorts in the word."

The Real Simpson's

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Koi August 6th to the 14th of August. You can assume by the pictures that is going to be a great place. There is no way that you can prepare for what you actually receive.

The house is exquisite, each room is a stand alone master suite, far enough from each one as not to hear anything but the water crashing on the beach.

We brought 10 family members that ranged in age from 6mos. to 65 yrs. There was plenty to do in Punta Mita without ever having to go to Puerto Vallarta. The real question would be why would you ever go out to eat?

Our adult children went out one night for an anniversary dinner and said it was very good but not near as good as Lucy's cooking. No one ever went out again for dinner.

Ron and Marriete have built an oasis that is like paradise. There just is no way to adequately describe how wonderful Villa Koi is.

Now the real surprise of the property. Javier, Lucy, Marcos, and Eli. You will never need for anything not groceries or drinks or great breakfasts, lunches and dinner. We are already looking at dates for 2017 that we can return.

Thanks to all that made the getaway such an unimaginable experience.

Having just returned from my third stay at Villa Koi, I have to say that it never ceases to amaze me. It is stunningly beautiful and the food and service is flawless. Every room has it's own personality - each one is perfectly decorated, spacious and extremely comfortable with lavishly appointed baths. The food prepared by Lucy is excellent, ever changing and beautifully presented. Javier does a wonderful job of making sure that everyone is taken care of, from arranging on-site massages to scheduling fishing trips, horse backing riding and anything else you could think of to do. There just does not seem to be enough time to do it all and still enjoy the beautiful views, sunsets, pool and beach. It is the perfect place to entice family members to get together, reconnect and relax. I cannot say enough to to the Villa justice, it has to be experienced!

Villa for kings!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

"I can not even begin to tell you thankful I am for offering your home to us! My client Victor was not expecting anything even close to Villa Koi to exist on this coastline. To say the least EVERYONE, my broker included is BLOWN away!! In addition, Lucy and Javier and the food are completely over the top! We fished yesterday and caught nearly 400 lbs of Yellowfin Tuna.....Victor caught the largest fish (130 lbs) and had never done anything like it in his life.....he is a VERY sophisticated man and I asked how he liked the house and he said "I am very humbled and thankful...the house is for kings".... I GUARANTEE he will be back to Villa Koi!

If you truly want first class..

  • 5 of 5

stayed a week in early august and was treated to the finest accomodations and service you could ever expect. I have stayed in several villas in PV as well as the beautiful 4 seasons but if you want something truly unique and special- this is the place. You know how when you go on a couples trip and rent a large house you worry a little about the inequality of the suites? Not a problem here as all 4 master suites are incredible with a fifth room with 2 queens that is awesome as well. Perfect for a couples or girls trip or even family retreat. The massages under the palapa by the pool overlooking the beach are unbelievable. The delicious food is prepared by Lucy and served by Javier who I just cant say enough about. They really make the vacation special.The villa is so safe and the attention to detail with its artwork and soothing koi ponds will leave you speechless. Thanks again for helping me make my wife's 40th birthaday one she will NEVER forget...jorge

From the first time the carved doors open and you walk into Villa Koi, you notice the design details and the steps that lead you down to a spectacular view of the koi pond, infinity pool and Banderas Bay. Words can't describe the feeling of the spotless rooms, the living/dining room underneath the dramatic central palapa and my very favorite spot; the pool area...where you float above crashing waves and enjoy the continuous breeze while sipping a sunset cocktail that Javier supplies with a huge grin. This is the perfect luxurious rental home for a large family, group of couples or friends or for anyone looking for the perfect blend of relaxation, privacy,shopping and dining on unbelievably delicious food ( prepared by Lucy Alvarez, a former hotel chef). Javier and Lucy's service was impeccable, anticipating everyone's need. The food and cocktails alone will make you never want to leave. Thank you for sharing your home with us. I truly think about this vacation every day and anticipate our next stay. We would recommend Villa Koi to anyone with discriminating taste.

Recommended for: Age 45+, couples who want a romantic getaway, families, girls getaway, shopping, families with teenagers.
