Why Kathy Young chose Bahía de Banderas
I was one of the original owners in Punta del Burro. When you see the area, you will know why I fell in love with it. I bought it when there was hardly anything there. Now we have cobbled stone roads, underground utilities and 24 hour security. We have all the bells and whistles.

Punta Mita House On Ocean - Case De Abuelas
We just returned from Casa de abuelas | Bahía de Banderas In Punta Mita Mexico!
Great communication, easy pick up and not far from airport by Juan! The house has a traditional Mexican feel, sleeps 11 and there is great separation for sleep from the main house where everyone hangs by the pool , eats and enjoys margaritas made to order! We had a 4 year old to 45 years old and the pool is in great condition, right on the ocean where you can lay in hammocks and watch the sun set & build fires with amazing star gazing! A+
* note * there is major construction going on in the neighborhood b/c it’s a booming area with homes being built in the 20+ million range HOWEVER we hardly noticed, and never had any disruption in sleep or loud annoying ongoing saw’s!!
** Security at main guard gate & beach patrol all night !!!!! Secure & Safe 10x **
* amazing value considering the hotel down the street cost as much for one room as the whole house which we visited on day passes but could not wait to come back to the house! You had Juan A+ and chef at your service and the food is great! Coldest Ac in Mexico, great wi-fi & over all awesome house | very fun place !!!
Recommendations close by ...
* have Juan charter Pinche to offshore fish full day $1100 but well worth it! Guy is best in town but bring your own food!!
* margaritas at sunset at restaurant .05 miles from house @ margaritas on hill / owner awesome!!
* day trip to Sayulita, we would not recommend going to Puerto Vayarta it’s like boardwalk Scam City with terrible food!!! Unless your looking to party at nightclubs !!! Not family friendly
* SURFERS & SUP PEOPLE ***
The surf break well known called Burros Is “only” a half a mile down the beach Walking distance however it’s very steep heavy sand and it’s like going to Boot Camp!! There might be a road but it’s great exercise!! Lol
It needs to be 4 feet to break but it’s not that crowded and it’s a very clean long reef break
* You can also charter a boat to Elfaro and some of the main point breaks if there is enough swell
* There is a surf break called La Lancha a few miles down the road and it’s a mile hike to the breach but once again it’s well worth it it picks up swell when it small everywhere and the crowds are not too bad and the beach is amazing for non-surfers A like!!
* We never made it to the island off the coast that has the coal hole in it I think it’s called Marieets And I’m a big golfer but we were so busy I never got to p
Another Great Stay
Second visit. Still wonderful. There will be a third. Thank you to Kathy, Juan, Baly, and Coby.
Had a great time again; will go back.
Spent another spectacular week; in which we went fishing a few days and took home some good fresh fish.
Juan and Bailey were great to see again; along with the good charm and fine cooking.
I had 6 new people with me and they were asking; when can we come down again.
The only negative I had; was the construction next door during the week that went from 8 to 6; but progress has to be made I guess and it will be done in the near future.
I do plan on going back again; no doubt.
Thank you, Kathy!
I'm glad you had such a good time. I was just there and Juan told me about your great fishing trip. I'm sorry about the construction. I was pleasantly surprised that the noise was not so bad. Also, they are not supposed to start before 9am. They didn't when we were there. I will let the office know that they were breaking the rules when you were there. They also are not working on Sat at all so that is good, and of course, they don't work on Sunday. Will be glad to welcome you back to Casa de las Abuelas.
Wonderful private place to relax and refresh!
We recently stayed in PVR from Aug 3-10 and it was everything we imagined! This place was spectacular for what we wanted - to get away and rest.
Having someone cook breakfast and dinner was AMAZING! They have you choose the food, they do the shopping and are wonderful chefs.
Having laundry done was a HUGE bonus!
The ocean was warm and we got to go out into it almost everyday.
The palapa with the hammocks was SO WONDERFUL!
The pool has a shallow area that our youngest child could hang in and still fun for the older ones. Great to relax in when the ocean wasn't appealing.
The rooms were great although we were not in them much.
Juan, Baly and Coby were very kind, quiet and helpful.
There is a resort nearby - almost walking distance - that had a wonderful spa and was a fun place to go to get out of the house for the day. Lots of animals around and nice facilities.
Surfing and paddleboarding were good - nice place to rent them nearby.
**This does not have to do with the home but: Even though the weather forecast said rain everyday it only rained at night and never once changed our plans.
The 2 upstairs rooms are not connected to the main house so you have to walk outside and downstairs to get back inside the main house.
The home is about 20-30 minutes from Nuevo Vallarta and a little further from Puerto Vallarta so be prepared to drive.
There is nothing close to walk to so be prepared to stay at the home most of the time.
The mosquitos were horrible - we finally had to start eating inside the house instead of in the beautiful outdoor seating because we would eat get about 30 bites each minimum at every meal.
The seating in the living room isn't suitable for a ton of people so most of your group time will be outside.
Overall we would go again if we could get a mosquito situation - it made the trip hard to fully enjoy but we spent most of our time on the beach anyway which made it worth it.
I am happy that overall you had a great time. However, I'm sorry that you had some Cons. I'm sorry that you didn't know that we were not in a town. Many people see this as a plus, but you didn't. I never go to Nuevo Vallarta or Puerto Vallarta as it is too far and we have such good restaurants in Punta de Mita, Bucerias and La Cruz. I do have my favorites listed in my book at the house.
The only way I could add 2 bedrooms was to do it as we did. This is very common in Mexico for some of the bedrooms to be entered by the outside.
As for mosquitos, we try very hard to control them. Aug and Sept are a "buggy" time and I'm sorry they were a problem.
Amazing Family Vacation!
To begin with the airport pick up is fantastic. The house and grounds are exactly as you see in the pictures, Stunning views right on the sand with a great pool. Baly Coby, and Juan were amazing host. The food was wonderful, anything we requested we had! Thank you for making our family vacation over the top!
Beautiful staff, property, and setting...we’ll return!
We stayed a week in July. Our group of 6 adults and 5 children couldn’t be happier with our vacation. Baly, Juan, and Coby worked so hard to make sure the house was in stellar condition and that we were well fed and hydrated. And the best part was that they always did it with a smile. Thank you Kathy for sharing your home. I can’t wait to go back.
Punta del Burro is a beautiful, safe, gated community on one of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico. This will be one of the most relaxing vacations with Juan and Baly cooking, making drinks and taking care of you. You will never want to leave.
