Overview

About the property

8 Bedrooms, 8.5 Bathrooms, 16 Sleeps (CASITA+MAIN HOUSE)

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!

Additional Information

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.

Please note that the Casita is never rented separately from Playasola villa

Most AMAZING vacation in Puerto Vallarta

  • 5 of 5

This trip was amazing. It was so relaxing, especially because we were spoiled rotten. Sergio absolutely read our minds and blew away our expectations of GREAT service away. Chicho then spoiled us in the evenings. Both Martha and Juan delighted our tummies with great food, we opted to not order off the menu and go with Chef's choices and WOW, that was the best decision we made. Primotivo continued to spoil us, with that warm smile and his sincere answer of "Of Course" to everything we asked for. He made our bonfire for us but the best treat was him joining us on our trip to his home community. We felt like family in his lil village. One of our family members was scared of horse back riding so he walked her horse the entire way to and from the water fall. Our next vacation, we are going to kidnap Sergio and take him with us. Yes, the house and the views and the private beach was also great !!!! A good time had by ALL.......

Phenomenal food and best group vacation to date!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our vacation at Playasola with a group of 8 couples and had the best vacation possible. The house would definitely work for a group with kids as well. Not only was the house amazing and even better/bigger in person, but the staff was incredible and made the stay! Juan and Martha made the most delicious food. They made 3 meals a day for us, along with snacks. We let them surprise us for a few meals and those turned out to be our favorite. Sergio was the best - he made us drinks whenever we wanted and also got to know our tastes to make us special fun drinks (i.e. blended strawberry mojitos and cucumber chili margaritas). The house is a trek from downtown/airport, but there really wasn't a reason to leave (10 min boat ride + 50 min taxi). We only have positive things to say about this place and the staff, and are already plotting our next trip! Also, already missing the delicious bacon and fresh squeezed orange juice.

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is gorgeous and impeccably clean. From the ocean views to the many terraces and outdoor activity areas, we were beyond spoiled for choices of things to do and places to lounge.

The staff is, however, what makes this property truly amazing. Primo, Luis, Rudy, Umberto and Martha made the trip beyond memorable! Every meal was delicious and every need was anticipated and met. The collective attention to detail and service was unparalleled. In addition, they could not have been kinder or more fun--serving as our ultimate guides throughout the weekend.

We loved every minute of our staff and hated to leave.

Outstanding stay at Playasola. Everyone loved it

  • 5 of 5

Playasola is a wonderful property and was enjoyed by the entire party. The staff you cannot say enough about. They were the best, highly attentive, and the cooking during the day and evening were outstanding. If staying at Playasola just request what you want and don't bother looking at the online menu. Its not good, and its not in the wheel house of what the staff can make you. Order a Taco bar with margaritas the first night and then when you get there sit down with Marta and the night chef and come up with the menu. They cook some amazing authentic Mexican food. If you get tired of Mexican they can cook whatever you want. The house is impeccably maintained and well suited for large groups and for people of any age within reason. If you were disabled at all it could be an issue because you are coming in and out by boat. We did venture downtown one day and its expensive to get too and from and time consuming so plan on staying local to the house. For food plan on $20/day/pp.

Fantastic......the best beach holiday ever!! Service was outstanding.

  • 5 of 5

The house and location was perfect. Transfer from airport to Playasola was smooth and family friendly. The trip highlight, aside from the beautiful location, was the committment of the staff to ensure all of our needs were looked after. The meals that Marta and Omberto provided everyday were 5 star dining experiences and the service that Rudy delivered went above and beyond expectations. This also included making special meals for the kids everyday....they probably have never cooked so many hotdogs and French fries.

With 5 grandchildren under 8 years of age the pool and beach provided them hours of fun.

Housekeeping staff kept the house very clean and ensured that our needs were looked after.

Would recommend this holiday location to anyone.

Total relaxation in a perfect setting!

  • 5 of 5

Playasola was one of the best vacation homes our family of 17 (ages 7 to 80) has ever rented! The home is lovely- clean & new in an unbelievably beautiful setting. The full staff was amazing!! Bene, our daytime cook, made the best scones & paella ever! Sergio & Luis are first rate servers, bartenders & "go to guys" - able to answer all questions & make sure our every need was met. They went out of their way to make our visit perfect & their margaritas were delicioso!! Our housekeepers, Chely & Jessie, were excellent. Juan, our evening chef made dinners that were out of this world. Primo, the onsite home caretaker, helped us with any & all questions/ needs. The entire experience was top notch. We highly recommend Playasola & would love to return one day. Thank you so very much!!
