About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Faro de Mita 308 is an exquisite penthouse condo overlooking the El Anclote surf break in Punta de Mita. There are views of mountains and ocean in all directions and the roof top deck includes a BBQ, bar sink, and powder room. When the surf is up, you can check the breaks from the deck. There are lots of other surf choices nearby.

The pool and lush grounds are perfect. The pool has a shallow area for children, enough length for lap swimming, and amazing chairs. The Palapa in the common area can serve for gatherings or just quiet time in the shade.

The Master Bedroom has a king size bed and a marble shower. 2 double beds in the second bedroom are very comfortable and have mountain views.

There is a complete kitchen and lovely dining area, but never fear 'Restaurant Row' is just steps away and the village offers cheap dining treasures if you go looking. The beach is just a short walk down the private path. During the winter, you can whale watch from the deck with your morning coffee.

Parking is secure behind the security gate, so your vehicle and boards will be safe overnight. It is also possible to take the bus from the airport and save the cost of a rental car. The village has several small markets and food vendors.

No TV or cable. Wireless internet.

About Kate Cocchiarella

We are the Cocchiarella family - Kate, Carl, Tucker (22) and Rachel (16). We live in Vail, CO and love the mountains. We also love Mexico. We hope you have a great time in Mita too. You can surf or swim, explore the land or ocean, speak lots of Spanish or just read a book. Make yourself at home.

Kate Cocchiarella purchased this condo in 2009

Why Kate Cocchiarella chose Punta de Mita

We love Mexico and Mita has lots of great surfing. The people are friendly and we have make lots of friends there. We hope to visit often. There is always something interesting to see and always something else that we want to do. It is great place to base out of for exploring other parts of Mexico.

What makes this condo unique

Surfing is close by. There is lots of local Mexican flavor, but plenty of luxury choices too. We are right next door to the best 4 Seasons in the world. It is a remarkably beautiful place. Within a couple of hours drive there is also magnificent country. There are lots of birds and other interesting wildlife, not to mention everything that lives in the ocean right out your front door. During the winter, you can see whales from the deck. Life in the condo is very comfortable and relaxing.

Xcellent Location & Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and our two young daughters stayed here for a month during our summer vacation. The condo itself is in excellent condition, tastefully decorated, and had everything we needed. The condo complex is very well maintained and the grounds and pool were immaculate. We spent our days at the beach, at the pool, and exploring the nearby towns. The town of Anclote is right outside of the condo and is a great mix of local taco shops and more upscale restaurants on the shore. We highly recommend the condo and would definetely stay here again.

Beautiful condo in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Owners were great to deal with. Concierge and Security were nice, friendly and attentive. Pool was very clean and good temp. Condo was clean, well stocked and true to the pictures posted on VRBO. Excellent location, easy to access main drag and private access to beach. We took the ATM bus to La Cruz and Bucerias for $14p each and it was easy with no problems. Lots of restaurants and street food options. Ask for price of margaritas at Si Senor before ordering! Surf break is ideal for longboard right in front of the condo complex. Board rental is $100p per "Mexican hour" (aka 90 mins). We rented from the guys right in front of the complex. Bring water shoes if you're not an experienced surfer as the bottom has some sharp stones if you land hard. We stopped at the Mega supermarket just before Bucerias on the way from the airport. But there are lots of Mini-Supers in P. Mita for groceries, beer, liquor. We found a Super-Duper-Mini-Super on the same street as the condo up toward the traffic circle that had everything we needed. It was a little more expensive but selection was great - especially liquor, wine and beer.

Perfect vacation in beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four just returned from 11 wonderful days in Punta de Mita. We loved everything about the condo - convenient location, fully equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, amazing outdoor space, and beautiful grounds/pool. Our twin 8 year olds especially loved the boogie boards! Kate was extremely easy to work with and the concierge Soledad was always available to answer any of our questions.

Great condo/property

  • 5 of 5

Kate is excellent to deal with, returns emails quickly. Condo is beautiful, as are the grounds and pool. Plenty of towels, kitchen utensils and very clean. Onsite property managers respond instantly for any questions, workers are busy nonstop all day on grounds, pool, and general maintenance. Security is 24 hours with fully fenced property and very nice, helpful security people. This is a great rental, in a quiet, beautiful town, we would love to return.

Thank you for everything Kate

My husband and I recently spent one week in this beautiful penthouse suite. The condo was extremely clean, well-maintained, and well-appointed. We enjoyed our morning coffee in the shade on the balcony, and evening cocktails while watching the sunset from the rooftop patio. The location is perfect- steps away from the wonderful restaurants in town. We highly recommend this unit to anyone looking for a private and lovely place to stay in Punta de Mita.

Great condo, great value!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with this condo. The pictures are very accurate and we were very comfortable there. We loved being able to leave the patio sliders open all of the time, it felt like we were outdoors all of the time. And no bugs. We had up to 6 in the condo at one time and there was lots of room. Well eqipped as well. The complex was very well maintained and the pool is much bigger than the pics show.

Punta de Mita has lots of good restuarants from low to high prices, so a good variety. We had lots of good meals out and also ate in a lot. There is good local shopping and a trip to the Mega every week make cooking, mostly BBQ-ing, very easy. You will not be sorry with this unit, it is a great value.
