Ranchos Estates

"Punta Mita's Pinnacle of Luxury Living." - Reviewed by Lisa

These ultra-private, prime beachfront, deluxe acre-plus estates provide an extraordinary vacation hideaway with round-the-clock security. Ranchos Estates is no stranger to celebrities and high profile visitors. Owners and guests found in this privileged enclave have names that are easily recognizable.

Discreetly nestled amid lush, tropical gardens, these homes are remarkable for their breathtaking views across the azure blue waters of Banderas Bay, out towards the Marietta Islands, as far as Puerto Vallarta and then sweeping up to the Sierra Madre mountains just behind the city.

All homes in the Ranchos Estates community are situated on a beautiful beach of white sand and are within easy walking distance of several other small bays where you can enjoy swimming, snorkeling, kayaking and other water sports. The beach, known for its famous surf break, “La Lancha”, is unique to the area as it offers an ideal place for those new to surfing to learn the ins-and-outs of the sport – while also providing waves that can challenge even the most advanced surfers.

Guests staying at Ranchos Estates have access to all the amenities of the nearby Punta Mita Resort.
