Introducing Playasola in Puerto Vallarta, the ultimate private getaway! This 3 acre oceanfront property at the south end of Las Animas beach, has an incredibly unique feature, it's own private sandy beach!
No neighbors or public on your beach.
Just sand and ocean, with a nicely developed mix of beach palapas, cantera terraces, and a private sports complex with lighted tennis court, basketball court, sand volleyball court and gym, not to mention a 9,000 square foot modern villa, with 5 bedrooms and 9 baths.
Playasola, which literally translates to 'lone beach', is the perfect name for this private getaway.
Two years in the making, Playasola offers its guests the seclusion and luxury of an Island-like property. Accessed by private water taxi from Boca pier, 5 minutes south of Mismaloya beach, you reach your own private paradise, close enough to downtown, but a world apart from other properties. The main Las Animas beach is a popular destination for all the boats you see heading south, to Los Arcos, and then to Las Animas.
As the main beach meanders south, it gets too rocky for the public to continue walking along the beach. After the rocky area, the Playasola beach cove turns sandy, with magnificent rock croppings decorating the sandy beach. On the far south end of Playasola beach, the mountains reach the ocean, making the Playasola beach totally private for its guests.
Local transportation to and from the airport is included in the rental rate. Guests are picked up at the airport by private drivers in one or two white suburbans and driven to Boca pier. There, you are greeted by staff members who assist with your luggage and guide you onto one or two private water taxis, for an 8 minute coastal ride, to arrive on the sand, directly in front of Playasola. Twenty feet from sand arrival are the cantera steps, leading to the beach palapa, terraces and villa of Playasola. Once you experience the private sandy beach, you may never want to leave!
Water taxis are available day and night, as it is the primary method of transportation to these tourist-catering towns on the south coast of Puerto Vallarta. The drivers all have cell phones, so a water taxi can be in front of the house within 5 minutes of calling, for an 8 minute ride to the main Boca pier, and then a 20 minute drive to downtown Puerto Vallarta. It's amazing that a place so secluded can be so close to downtown Vallarta!
Playasola is a great place to be as active or as lazy as you would like, enjoying a luxury vacation with full staff, including a gourmet dinner chef, to cater to your culinary delights. Spa services are also available by arrangement, for Spa personnel to come to the house to cater to your wants and needs. Beach services are available from the main beach, such as parasailing, jet skis, etc. There is also a nice horseback trip at the town next door, 10 minutes south, called Quimixto. It offers a 20 minute horseback ride up to a waterfall, with a nice restaurant at the base of the waterfall.
Our staff of 7 cater to all your needs, from shopping, to cooking, cleaning, food and beverage service, laundry and security. From 7am to 3pm, our morning staff take care of breakfast, lunch and shopping. From 3pm to 11pm, our afternoon staff are there to please, until whenever you dismiss them after dinner service. Our husband and wife caretakers, Primativo and Araceli, live on site, in the lower level staff quarters, accessed by a separate side entrance. Araceli is our full time housekeeper and Primativo is the groundskeeper /maintenance. They are available if any urgent need arises after hours. Otherwise, they are unseen after hours, leaving the house for your private enjoyment. We also have a night time security guard, from 7pm to 7am, out on the main grounds.
The villa itself is a creation of luxury. Design aspects from Casa La Vista were incorporated in Playasola's design, from the garden staircase, to walls of glass to open up the main areas to the pool deck. Extensive use of stone materials throughout, marble floors, red sandstone staircase walls, cantera decking, and fine stone boarders in the bedroom flooring, combine for a feel of natural luxury on the beach!
The house has 3 master bedrooms and two standard bedrooms, each with oceanfront decks and full ensuite baths. The 5th bedrooms has two single beds, which can be converted to a king by request. Sports equipment is available on site, tennis rackets, basket balls, volleyballs and there is an automated ball machine for the tennis court. A tennis instructor can be arranged by special request if desired.
With all of the amenites available on site, many choose to partake in the most popular Playasola activity, relaxing on the beach, watching the boats go by and the waves come and go, and wondering where the week went so fast!

A week of total relaxation, pampering and spectacular views...must be Playasola. This thoughtfully designed home was welcoming and functional with ocean views from every room along with beautiful decor and overly comfortable beds. There are so many areas to explore on this property from the sports complex (try the 100+ stairs for a great workout) to the beach palapa to the open air living room and pool deck. Each provided an unique experience for a full day of enjoyment without the long walk or crowds of a traditional resort.
And from the moment we stepped onto the sandy beach of our "home", the exceptional service and attention began. Rudi did not allow a finger to be lifted seeming to know our request before we could make it. Sondra consistently prepared delicious meals for our hungry crew. And once the evening approached, Luis served with a caliber of excellence while Umberto prepared dinner with great skill and taste. Even our teenagers were impressed!
Our group of nine (four adults and five teenagers) agreed this one is a keeper! We have already begun planning our return as Playasola gave us everything we needed...time to relax, enjoy family and be truly spoiled.
Perfect Villa in Sunny Mexico!
A friend group of 5 moms and their 5 high school senior daughters spend 5 nights at this amazing home in January 2016. Everything was perfecto - from the impeccably furnished three-story house, to the delicious and freshly prepared meals, to the made-to-order drinks all day/night long, to the beautiful landscaping and beach, and most of all - to the outstanding staff that made our stay wonderful. We will definitely return, and our daughters are planning many reunions at Playasola.
I'm not sure how this is possible, but the villa exceeded our high expectations. We have viewed it from a passing panga the past couple of years so we knew the location was awesome, but once inside we found that the construction, furnishings, and amenities were also impeccable. We marveled and wondered about the effort it must have taken to build such a place in that remote location. Of course what made our stay so relaxing and decompressing was the attentive, friendly, and professional staff. They were all top notch. Luis was the true ambassador of Playasola. He was knowledgeable and helped us decide on and arrange activities such as massages and fishing. He also shared helpful information about Puerto Vallarta, Las Animas, Playasola, and the owner's other properties such as Casa La Vista. As a bonus we were never thirsty when Luis was around. I don't want to take anything away from anyone else because they were all wonderful, but Luis is who we came to rely on the most and he really made us feel at home. I have to mention that Juan also got to know our preferences and cooked phenomenal meals. We spent a good amount of time scheming about return visits (with and without kids) Thanks for providing a wonderful location, villa and staff!
