About the property

8 Bedrooms, 8.5 Baths, Sleeps 16

This dramatic 25,000 square foot Palapa-style home was designed by renowned Mexican architect Aldaco. Upon entering the compound you walk into a stunning open space living room with 180 degree ocean views. The residence is perched on a point with beaches to both sides and has the best views of any home in the entire area. From the very large palapa living room you step down to the deck, yard and infinity pool area where there are comfortable lounge chairs lined up overlooking the ocean and pool.

There is a large media and game room that is enclosed for those who prefer to retreat inside, and multiple sitting areas around the compound. There are both inside and outside dining areas; the formal inside dining room seats sixteen.

There are two master suites, each with huge marble bathrooms and enough closet space to stay for a year! Both master suites open to the ocean and have private exterior sitting areas. In addition, there are two more rooms with king beds and four rooms with two queen beds each. Each suite has ocean views and a large private bath. In the center of the compound there is a yoga room which can also be used as a massage room. In addition, there is another suite with a full bath and kitchenette for your pilot or nanny.

The residence is fully staffed with butler, driver, chef, housekeeping staff as well as on-site concierge. This residence tops any resort anywhere in the world!

Guests enjoy access to the Four Seasons Golf Course with discounted rates, the Four Seasons tennis facilities, and the restaurants of The Four Seasons and St. Regis Hotels. The villa is located approximately five minutes driving from The Four Seasons Hotel. Guests also enjoy Ranchos Estate Concierge services as well as access to the private Rancho Estates Residents Beach Club and Restaurant.

About Exceptional Stays

We are lucky enough to have this home which brings us lots of great family moments! We always wanted a ski chalet, and being from Europe we wanted a house that would remind us of the lovely chalets in Switzerland where we grew up skiing.

We live in Europe so we can't use it as much as we would like, but even living in Europe we feel it's a special place and make the trip twice a year. We have four boys who love to ski, and the convenient ski access makes life so much easier for us while we are on vacation. Besides skiing, there is so much we enjoy doing in the Telluride area - snow shoeing, mushroom hunting, motorbike riding, mountain bike riding, hiking and four wheel driving. If you are not so much into action and adventure there are countless festivals and cultural events that take place all summer long, weekly farmers markets, cooking classes...never a dull moment!

Why Exceptional Stays chose Punta Mita

Telluride offers the best skiing and hiking experience we have ever known! No lift lines, beautiful scenery in both summer and winter and endless mountains...we love skiing in Colorado because there is a laid back feeling that you do not get so much skiing in Europe. In Telluride, everyone is so relaxed, nobody seems to be rushing or pushing, everyone is really taking their time and enjoying themselves. I also love that there is no pretension here in Telluride. There are some very flashy ski resorts out there! Telluride definitely has style and class, but you rarely see a women wearing high heels to dinner!!

The thing I love most about Telluride - it does not matter if you are rocking the oldest ski gear on the mountain, or maybe you feel that you might not be the strongest skier. All that matters is that you are having a good time!

There is ski terrain for every level on the mountain. There is some very difficult hike to terrain, and there are also plenty of mellow greens and blues.

What makes this house unique

We feel away from it all in the privacy of this home but we are only 4 minutes away from the Village Core and supermarket! It also does not matter if you don't have a car. There is a complimentary taxi service in Mountain Village called dial-a-ride. They will take you anywhere in Mountain Village for free!

As for the house itself, I love sitting out on the deck in the hot tub, enjoying a glass of wine and relaxing after a big ski day. We also love to use the deck, particularly in spring. Often we will meet back at the house for lunch on the deck.

This is one of the finest homes that I have stayed in and we have stayed in the best. We were there with 4 other couples and were taken care of like Kings. The Food, the staff, the house, the drinks, the sunsets, and the rooms were all spectacular You can't lose with this one. Right on the Pacific and lots of activities. Also laundry done every night among other great surprises

Poker Trip

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent four glorious days at Rancho 9. We were 4 couples and we all were throughly pampered and fed like royalty. The positioning of the property and the rooms gives everyone fabulous views. The staff could not be more helpful. We had massage therapists available on property everyday for several hours and they were great.

We are an active group and Rancho 9 did not disappoint from spear fishing to golfing, swimming working out everyone was taken care of. Off property we visited Sayulita and Punta Mita. Both great little villages with lots of shopping and restaurants.
