Spanish for lone beach, Playasola is a quintessential oceanfront villa located in the exclusive Mismaloya area of the Bay of Banderas. You will be perfectly poised for the ultimate beach holiday at this three acre property. The villa boasts a private sand beach. Sheltered by a magnificent rock cropping as the mountains reach the ocean, your private sandy cove is free of passers-by. The seclusion and resplendence of this villa has also made it a popular spot for weddings and other events.
Playasola offers the seclusion and luxury of an island-like property amid a mix of beach palapas, cantera terraces and a private sports complex with a night lit tennis court, basketball court, beach volleyball and fitness facility. The pristine, curved infinity pool with swim-up bar is nestled in the lush tropical foliage and provides uninterrupted sea views. Or take a well deserved soak in the outdoor Jacuzzi. The alfresco experience is rounded out with a kitchen palapa, wet bar, a lovely dining area and a gas grill. Indoors, you will find a home entertainment system with satellite TV, surround sound, iPod dock and Xbox 360 console. Wi-Fi access, office equipment and purified water are provided for your convenience and peace of mind. Your reservation includes a chef service, wait staff, bartender, housekeeping and security guard.
The capacious living and dining areas inside offer comfortable and stylish furnishings and stellar ocean vistas. The impressive gourmet kitchen comes with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and a large center island. High ceilings and brilliant finishes provide an airy and breezy atmosphere throughout this magnificent home.
Eight immaculate bedrooms accommodate up to sixteen fortunate guests at Playasola. Five bedrooms, with en-suite bathrooms, are located in the main house, and three bedrooms with air conditioning and satellite TVs are situated in a separate casita. Family friendly throughout, all the main house suites include air conditioning, ceiling fans, satellite TVs and waterfront decks.
Guests of Playasola will be picked up at the airport by private drivers and driven to the Boca Pier. They are then greeted by staff members who assist with luggage and guide guests onto a private water taxi for a picturesque eight minute coastal ride directly to the villa. With all of the amenities available on-site, many choose to partake in the most popular activity: relaxing on the beach. As you watch the boats coast by and the waves ebb and flow, you may just wonder how the week slipped by so quickly!

Guests are picked up at the airport by private drivers in one or two white suburbans and driven to Boca pier. There, they are greeted by staff members who assist with luggage and guide guests onto one or two private water taxis. An 8-minute coastal ride has guests arriving 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.
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, for an 8 minute ride to the main Boca pier and then a 20 minute drive to downtown Puerto Vallarta.
There is 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.
The caretakers, Primativo and Araceli, live onsite in the lower level staff quarters (accessed by a separate side entrance). They are available if any urgent need arises after hours. Otherwise, they are unseen after hours, leaving the house for guests private enjoyment.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Playasola and have every intention of planning another trip back there. Can’t say enough great things about the staff, Luis, Rudy, Primo, Juan, and the others that I can’t remember their names. We kept them busy and they were extremely gracious. What a wonderful staff that you have there. The house was terrific. The Casita was a little further walk and a few more stairs than we had anticipated, but it all worked out well.
Great family retreat!
The villa was even better than we'd imagined. I planned this trip with my siblings to celebrate my mom's 70th birthday together with our whole family. The villa was perfect for our group of 15, accommodating a range of ages and activity levels with sports courts, the beach, the pool, and an exceptional staff. The level of polish on in the home exceeded expectations, and the amount of space allowed everyone to roam and choose whether to be with a group or spend some time recharging alone. The best part, by far, was the staff. Rudy and Luis served up excellent drinks all day, with Juan making delicious dinners that brought the whole family together a few times a day. The house was kept neat and clean, as were the grounds. And anytime we needed anything, we were attended to with careful urgency. This included arranging for beach-side massages, working out logistics for an adventure day, and getting our photographer to the villa for some family photos. Playasola is Perfect
fabulous Villa Playasola
From the start of our vacation to the reloading of the luggage in our airport transfer car to head back home, we all agreed that this Villa exceeded our expectations. The Villa was large and open and always clean. The beds were very comfortable and the ability to leave your bedroom doors open at night to listen to the sound of the surf was very relaxing. Each of the four couples had large bedrooms with very well appointed on suites. While we had a chef and butler on staff we always were welcome into the kitchen to meet them and chat not just about the next meal. Sergio and Luis were very attentive, almost knew what we wanted before had to ask and so friendly! Juan's meals were delicious, so much so that a couple of "foodies" on our trip wanted recipes. Although there was a beautiful large dining table, we chose to eat at the poolside table as it was more intimate for our group of 8. Primo invited us for a walk to the waterfalls and it was nice to meet his family on the way.
In short, everything about our Playasola stay was perfect. From the upfront planning with Luxury Retreats, to the travel to Playasola, to our final 'so long', every aspect of our stay exceeded our expectations. The location (accessible only by short boat ride) was perfect for our family. We enjoy being a bit 'off the beaten path'. Playasola itself is fantastic. Every room has unobstructed views of the bay. To a person, the staff was exceptional. We ate most of our meals at Playasola. Both our day and evening chefs are worthy of any restaurant stateside. There was simply no reason to go anywhere else to eat. Our every food desire was accommodated. Down to wings and quesadillas for Super Bowl evening. We decided to leave all of our activity planning until we arrived at Playasola. Our staff was able to plan everything that we wanted to do. Our entire stay was great and we'd recommend Luxury Retreats and Playasola without hesitation.
New experience but our weather was a challenge during our stay
Great and fun location
Fantastic family vacation for all ages.
We loved every minute of the vacation. The weathe, location, service, food, attentiveness of the staff, the beds and bathrooms, and activities. The private beach was awesome for our grandkids. I would highly recommend Playasola Villa!
