Michael has spent his life in investment banking. Robin has successfully raised

two great sons, Alex and Michael,Jr. In her spare time she manages our investment properties. We were both granted MBA degree's. We have lived in San Francisco and Marin county for the last thirty years.

michael jacks purchased this condo in 2007

Why michael jacks chose Nayarit

After visiting PV for decades we decided that it was time to find something to call

a second home. It was love at first sight. We bought it the day that we first saw it.

What makes this condo unique

Peace of mind due to the high level of security

The joy of waking up to such a beautiful view

The joy of relative seclusion from the madness of crowds

Surprised by the number of extremely high quality restaurants within a twenty minute drive

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just returned from my third visit and it is just as amazing, even better, than before. The villa is even more beautiful than shown (see other comments). Lots of room, great kitchen, views of Puerto Vallarta, stunning at night, a beach out front, stunning pools and all the peace and tranquility you could hope for.

What made this trip better is the entire area around Esmeralda has improved. The towns of Bucerias and Sayulita show a marked improvement. They are cleaner and livelier than before. Lots of fun places to eat; even the street food is great.

Had a banner fishing day out of PV aboard one of the Masters' boat company; trophy rooster fish! Golfed near Punta Mita. It's as nice a locale as I've visitied and I"ve stayed in many first-class resorts around the world.

Beautiful Beach Front Condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family booked the condo for a week, and absolutely loved our stay. Robin and Mike were always available to communicate with us before, during and after our stay. The condo was beautiful - right on the beach with beautiful pools nearby as well. The condo was overall nice and quiet, and we had plenty of privacy in the condo as well as on our patio.The restaurant at the condo was reasonably priced with great food, and wonderful staff. It was approximately a 30 minute walk down the beach to Bucerias, which we did a few times, however using the Collectivo and taxis were just as easy - and much quicker! We had an amazing time, great weather - and the ability to kick back and relax by the pool, or hit the beach for snorkelling, frisbee or spike ball. Overall a wonderful experience, thanks Robin & Mike!!

Beautiful and Tranquil - Perfect Beachfront Villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 hot days in August in this beautiful space - the view of the ocean, the decoration of the outdoor and indoor spaces- we were completely blown away. This is a gem in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle - a small town that really makes you feel like you're at a paradise getaway.

Waking up in the morning and looking out the window from the bedroom where we were made us so happy. The breakfast at the Punta Esmeralda restaurant was delicious and then walks/meditation/swimming right on the beach or from the patio was surreal. The house has strong air conditioning units and fans in all areas so though it was hot/humid outside, inside was so cool. There were only two of us so we only slept in the master bedroom but the other rooms were very nice too. Mike and Robin have great taste in furniture, which was very comfortable and unique style.

Thought it was difficult to leave Coral 2 it was the perfect location and we were able to easily walk several times along the beach Bucerias a nearby town and able to explore nearby beach cities -beach town Sayulita, famous Puerta Vallarta, and Mismaloya for snorkeling. Jumping on the local bus is so easy right from the highway, which made transport quick and reliable.

This is the kind of place you will like if you want a one-of-a-kind experience, it really is a treasure. It's not your typical Puerta Vallarta resort with over-development - it's more secluded, but also also centrally located so you can go in either direction to great little towns/cities.

We stayed 10-days during HOT August and loved it! 4 adults and 4 kids with plenty of room. The property is beautiful and we enjoyed three of the eight large pools, plus our private plunge pool which is bigger than it looks. The restaurant is really close and it's very good. It has a big pool next to it making it convenient with little kids. And they also will deliver food and drinks to the villa or even if you are hanging out at one of the other pools. Prices are super reasonable too (cash only and pesos preferred). The spa was simple but nice and we enjoyed massages and facials for about $25-$30 US. The gym is good sized with good equipment. There weren't many people staying there and sometimes we we were the only people at the pools. This property is closer to La Cruz (5 minutes) than Bucerias but Bucerias is still not far and has more. We went to both towns frequently to eat. We drove to Sayulita twice and it only took about 20 minutes and it is a pretty drive and fun town. Definitely recommend going there.

This villa was very nice and comfortable. We slept in the smaller "master" and the bed was really comfortable. I loved how each room had their own bathroom. Wifi worked well as did everything. Would definitely stay here again!

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

All the rentals in Punta Esmerelda are luxurious, comfortable and beautiful but THIS one stands above the rest. The plunge pool, the electric curtains, art work, furnishings and location make this a must-have vacation spot.

We stayed a month and enjoyed every minute.

Punta Esmerelda is the crown jewel of Busarias and this unit is the crown jewel of Punta Esmerelda.

Escape to Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I planned our first vacation together to Coral Two with high hopes for a serene, inspiring, beautiful, luxurious escape. Our experience surpassed anything we could have imagined!

The condo, the property, the location, the amenities, the view, the beach, the pool, the quick trips to Sayulita and Bucerias, all of it, magnificent.

Robin and Mike have paid every attention to detail in this vacation home. It is luxurious, welcoming, and comfortable. Perfect for a family or just a couples get away.

Whether your 1st time to Mexico or your 30th, you must experience Coral Two at Punta Esmeralda. Annette and I are forever grateful and will return.

Roger Mason.

Top notch home and location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn’t have been more pleased with not only the perfect location, but the awesome set up with a very spacious four bedroom, patio, and our own little pool with the sandy beach right beyond that. There is also a larger pool steps away perfect for longing in the sun, play with our 18 month old (part of the pool is designed with shallows for exactly this purpose). The home has everything you could possibly need for your stay.

I unfortunately had to get work done while away and the internet wifi work perfectly. No one had to know that I was away. That along with the cable smart TV we were more than well set for a lengthy stay.

This is a great place for families. It offers great privacy and is a 20 minute drive south to Puerto Vallarta or 20 minutes north to Sayulita (where we ended up half of our days).

The staff is nothing but super friendly and helpful. There’s also a very helpful guest book that will give plenty of suggestions for things to do and places to eat.

Coral 2 is located in the prestigious Punta Esmeralda resort. The resort is located approximately 20 minutes north of the Puerto Vallarta airport. A short ride to the south is the cityscape of Puerto Vallarta with it's night life, tourist attractions and culture.

Fifteen minutes to the north is a completely different experience. Sayulita is a lovely, quaint Mexican village seemingly lost in time. Cobblestone streets, small stores and surf shops situated around an old time town square. The beach is broad and deep. There is both a left and right hand surf break. A stones throw from the villa is the wonderful little town of Bucerias. It offers an opportunity to shop for authentic mexican handicrafts. There are several high end restaurants and great beach shacks to satisfy your culinary desires.

The new deep water marina in Las Cruz is ten minutes away. The Polo matches in San Francisco are thirty minutes away. They shouldn't be missed.
