"Incredible ocean-front home in La Punta Estates with direct beach access and panoramic pool." - Reviewed by Deborah

A regal entrance — complete with bubbling water fountain —, impressive double-height ceilings, and imposing pillars all set the tone for this grand villa. While the architecture is reminiscent of times gone by, the interiors are decidedly timeless, decked in quality modern furniture that references nature in its most subtle hues.

On the ground floor, the breezy, open-plan, interior living/dining area and bedroom suites spill over onto an expansive poolside terrace that is flanked by an immaculately manicured lawn whose bright green tones contrast the striking blues of the shimmering sea beyond. The panoramic free-form pool – accompanied by an outdoor jacuzzi – is long enough for morning or sunset laps.

With plenty of outdoor areas for al-fresco dining and tanning alike, you can watch the horizon and count yachts and breaching whales or observe the skill of blossoming surfers as they hone their talents on the El Faro surf spot just in front. Meanwhile, your private chef and wait staff serve up a feast morning, noon and night. An inviting media/family room provides a comfy place to watch movies or listen to music.

Full Club Punta Mita membership is extended to guests, meaning access to two Jack Nicklaus golf courses, residents beach clubs, tennis courts and more.

Without a doubt, this home is a top choice for families or groups of friends who don’t want to lift a finger except to change the music on the Sonos sound system while enjoying some of the best ocean views you’ll ever experience.
