About the property

270* views thru out, A/C, full kichen, creature comforts

El Campo del Mar is perfectly situated on the Bay of Banderas just outside of the city and only minutes away from the PV International Airport and town center. The villa complex is reminiscent of old Mexico in its traditional Spanish colonial architecture, cobblestone streets and beautiful common areas. Due to Garza Blanca's pristine location on the bay, its beauty cannot be duplicated and remains a sought after destination by world travelers.

With comfort and class in mind, the villa's formal entry invites you into a spacious great room with breathtaking views from Los Arcos and beyond to the south, around the bay and across to the northern point of Punta de Mita. The great room opens up onto the terrace with gorgeous mountain, jungle and river views into the gourmet kitchen with pass through counter and out on to the private patio with gas BBQ and heated pool through large bi-fold doors. Whether you choose to try your hand at preparing a meal with fresh local ingredients or secure an available cook, the casa offers three dining areas each with its own incredible view.From the pool and patio, the master bedroom and sitting area can be accessed further demonstrating the private, casual yet elegant living that the home affords. The blend of antique artifacts and contemporary finishes represents the aesthetic that is Mexico today. WI-FI is provided. From serene sunrise and moonrise, spectacular sun and moon sets to star filled skies at night both during and after your stay, you will find that El Campo del Mar exudes a feeling of warmth and serenity and, with its many visual delights, beckons you for a return.

About Jay or Sandy

We live in the Pacific Northwest and enjoy a change in season from our local winters. The tropical climate, wonderful warm people, diverse activities of Puerto Vallarta and surrounding areas, warm waters of the Pacific Ocean and Banderas Bay and add Garza Blanca...well, Sandy and I have found our slice of paradise.

Jay or Sandy purchased this villa in 2006

Why Jay or Sandy chose Puerto Vallarta

Our family has been vacationing in Puerto Vallarta since 1986. We have had the pleasure of knowing Garza Blanca through our many stays as guests and when the villa of our choice became available, we took the appropriate steps to secure it.

What makes this villa unique

Undoubtedly the best view of the bay, we love dining on the patio enjoying fresh fish and shrimp on the grill lingering until dark to watch the nightly fireworks. We enjoy a cup of coffee on the terrace observing the many varieties of birds in the river valley jungle. Whale watching in season and the passing dolphins delight our guests as they watch the cruise ships enter the harbor from the ocean through the bay and view the smaller boats passing from the harbor south to the beaches of Mismaloya and Yelapa.

As returning guests to El Campo Del Mar, we decided on a late spring vacation this year. Longer days, quite beaches and calm waters were a bonus to our trip. We loved the new patio lounge chairs as we spent quality time relaxing poolside taking in the expansive view of the bay watching the gorgeous sunsets, stars and fireworks.

Owner's Response: Oh thank you! We have visited Puerto Vallarta in all times of the year and each has its own special elements. In addition to the marine life, we enjoy watching the many birds in the jungle tree tops as we sit on our terrace in the mornings. The botanical gardens are south of us past picturesque Mismaloya and are a feast for the senses. We look forward to hosting you anytime!

My husband surprised me with an anniversary get-away to P.V. this spring and El Campo del Mar was the perfect destination! Beautiful well appointed villa and great location on the south shore.

We are planning a return soon!

Thank you Jay and Sandy for such a lovely opportunity to experience Puerto Vallarta the RIGHT way. I have now finally concluded a hotel is not the correct way to go on a vacation. El Campo del Mar has just the perfect amount of "home away from home" feel; with the WOW of luxury added in. My husband and I will be back next year for sure.

We just returned from a magical trip to El Campo del Mar (Villa 303). In fact, I think we left a bit of our hearts there! This villa is the PERFECT combination of beautiful Mexican décor & architecture and modern comforts & conveniences. We stayed four nights and even though we had plans to go out & about in Puerto Vallarta, we ended up spending every day & evening at the villa; there was just no reason to leave!

From the spacious rooms & living area to the private pool with magnificent 180 degree views of the ocean, the villa provided us with the perfect setting for pure relaxation. The gorgeous green rain forests tumble right into the beautiful blue ocean, topped off by an endless sky..... all viewed from the luxurious privacy of our own pool!

Our days were spent in a steady state of bliss, where our biggest decisions were whether to read our book by the pool or on a raft in the pool; whether to have a beer or a margarita; whether to nap in the shade or the sun. Have I mentioned what a perfect trip it was?!

In addition to the villa, a few other factors made our trip so wonderful:

-- the owners provided us with a contact for a taxi driver, who was waiting for us at the airport. Tony took us to a grocery store on the way to the villa, so we could stock up on the essentials (ie - Corona, limes, etc.!). He made the trip to the villa easy & comfortable. He also picked us back up as scheduled and returned us to the airport.

-- the owners also provided us with a contact for a local woman who came in and prepared some of the most DELCIOUS meals I've ever eaten. We were able to choose what we wanted ahead of time. She brought all of the supplies, cooked the meals, set the table, served the food and did all the cleanup. In addition to the main course, she would also have fresh fruit, freshly squeezed juice, rice, beans, tortillas, guacamole, etc. and it was all so good! We were a bit heartbroken that we couldn't bring her home with us!

-- the owners also provided us with a contact for a masseuse who came to the villa. Needless to say, we were 110% relaxed after our massages!

-- I felt as safe as I do in my own home.

The photos don't do this villa justice. The blues of the pool, ocean & sky were so lovely. The greens of the rainforests & palm trees were beautiful. The comforts made us never want to leave (plush towels, AC, WIFI, etc.). The décor showed the owners' appreciation for local art. It truly was PERFECT!

When I say that the photos do not do this place justice, I mean it! When we walked in we were blown away. The view alone is breath taking not to mention the decorations and feel of this home. I was literally in tears. Sandy and Jay, thank you so much for allowing us to share your home. We talked to many people in the complex who told us how wonderful you guys are. We actually looked at one of the units that is for sale! Sandy and Jay were wonderful to deal with and Gabi the maid was absolutely amazing, I am a clean freak and she was beyond my standards. This place is beautifully located, its away from the hustle and bustle of Old Town but a close enough cab ride to everything. If you stay here make sure you take a boat ride to Yelapa. Sandy and Jay thank you again and again!

Vacation saved by this home!

First I was booked in a hotel down the street and I knew I had to change my accommodations after the first night. Saw this property and got an immediate reply from the owners that it was available. Next thing I knew - I was enjoying my private pool with a view of the ocean! What a property! Comfortable beds, washer and dryer, large bathrooms, wifi. It was perfect! IF you need to get groceries - there is a market inside Hirosol Resort (cash only) or Costa Sur Resort (takes credit cards). Easy to grab a bus or a cab. Thank you, I know I will be back!

The beautiful white sand beaches just below our complex -Playa Garza Blanca and Playa Punta Negra for starters then the many other beaches around the bay offer a fun day at the beach. We have beach umbrellas and 2 beach chairs.

Mismaloya Beach to the south of our villa offers great swimming, traditional palapas and beach side dining & people watching. A short bus ride from the villa. A little farther south we recommend a visit to Boca de Tomatlan. It is a small village where many pangas (small boats) take off for southern beaches accessible only by boat - Boca offers restaurants on the beach and again, available by bus but is tis the end of the line and returns to PV.

Many other activities include zip lines over fresh water rivers in the mountains, adventure tours, dolphin interaction, turtle release, and all water sports are available in the bay area. Art tours, local Saturday markets, shopping and strolling the beautiful Malecon (boardwalk) along the Pacific Ocean all must do's. Weekend evenings along the Malecon feature mimes, musicians, artisans, local cuisine and mingling with the local families of Puerto Vallarta. Our home is perfectly located and just a short bus ride into town to enjoy the city yet far enough out of the city to hear the surf and watch the whales and dolphins by day and fireworks and stars at night.

Our botique enclave of villas and casas cascades down the hillside providing panoramic bay views, mountain and jungle views and bird, dolphin and whale watching from the patio, terrace and most windows. The south side of the bay boasts 5 star hotels and resorts within a short walk, taxi or bus ride.
