Spanish for lone beach, Playasola is a quintessential oceanfront villa located in the exclusive Mismaloya area of the Bay of Banderas. You will be perfectly poised for the ultimate beach holiday at this three acre property. The villa boasts a private sand beach. Sheltered by a magnificent rock cropping as the mountains reach the ocean, your private sandy cove is free of passers-by. The seclusion and resplendence of this villa has also made it a popular spot for weddings and other events.
Playasola offers the seclusion and luxury of an island-like property amid a mix of beach palapas, cantera terraces and a private sports complex with a night lit tennis court, basketball court, beach volleyball and fitness facility. The pristine, curved infinity pool with swim-up bar is nestled in the lush tropical foliage and provides uninterrupted sea views. Or take a well deserved soak in the outdoor Jacuzzi. The alfresco experience is rounded out with a kitchen palapa, wet bar, a lovely dining area and a gas grill. Indoors, you will find a home entertainment system with satellite TV, surround sound, iPod dock and Xbox 360 console. Wi-Fi access, office equipment and purified water are provided for your convenience and peace of mind. Your reservation includes a chef service, wait staff, bartender, housekeeping and security guard.
The capacious living and dining areas inside offer comfortable and stylish furnishings and stellar ocean vistas. The impressive gourmet kitchen comes with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and a large center island. High ceilings and brilliant finishes provide an airy and breezy atmosphere throughout this magnificent home.
Eight immaculate bedrooms accommodate up to sixteen fortunate guests at Playasola. Five bedrooms, with en-suite bathrooms, are located in the main house, and three bedrooms with air conditioning and satellite TVs are situated in a separate casita. Family friendly throughout, all the main house suites include air conditioning, ceiling fans, satellite TVs and waterfront decks.
Guests of Playasola will be picked up at the airport by private drivers and driven to the Boca Pier. They are then greeted by staff members who assist with luggage and guide guests onto a private water taxi for a picturesque eight minute coastal ride directly to the villa. With all of the amenities available on-site, many choose to partake in the most popular activity: relaxing on the beach. As you watch the boats coast by and the waves ebb and flow, you may just wonder how the week slipped by so quickly!

Guests are picked up at the airport by private drivers in one or two white suburbans and driven to Boca pier. There, they are greeted by staff members who assist with luggage and guide guests onto one or two private water taxis. An 8-minute coastal ride has guests arriving on the sand, directly in front of Playasola. Twenty feet from sand arrival are the cantera steps, leading to the beach palapa, terraces and villa of Playasola.
Water taxis are available day and night, as it is the primary method of transportation to these tourist-catering towns on the south coast of Puerto Vallarta. The drivers all have cell phones, so a water taxi can be in front of the house within 5 minutes, for an 8 minute ride to the main Boca pier and then a 20 minute drive to downtown Puerto Vallarta.
There is a nice horseback trip at the town next door, 10 minutes south, called Quimixto. It offers a 20-minute horseback ride up to a waterfall, with a nice restaurant at the base of the waterfall.
The caretakers, Primativo and Araceli, live onsite in the lower level staff quarters (accessed by a separate side entrance). They are available if any urgent need arises after hours. Otherwise, they are unseen after hours, leaving the house for guests private enjoyment.

The villa is gorgeous and impeccably clean. From the ocean views to the many terraces and outdoor activity areas, we were beyond spoiled for choices of things to do and places to lounge.
The staff is, however, what makes this property truly amazing. Primo, Luis, Rudy, Umberto and Martha made the trip beyond memorable! Every meal was delicious and every need was anticipated and met. The collective attention to detail and service was unparalleled. In addition, they could not have been kinder or more fun--serving as our ultimate guides throughout the weekend.
We loved every minute of our staff and hated to leave.
Playasola is a wonderful property and was enjoyed by the entire party. The staff you cannot say enough about. They were the best, highly attentive, and the cooking during the day and evening were outstanding. If staying at Playasola just request what you want and don't bother looking at the online menu. Its not good, and its not in the wheel house of what the staff can make you. Order a Taco bar with margaritas the first night and then when you get there sit down with Marta and the night chef and come up with the menu. They cook some amazing authentic Mexican food. If you get tired of Mexican they can cook whatever you want. The house is impeccably maintained and well suited for large groups and for people of any age within reason. If you were disabled at all it could be an issue because you are coming in and out by boat. We did venture downtown one day and its expensive to get too and from and time consuming so plan on staying local to the house. For food plan on $20/day/pp.
The house and location was perfect. Transfer from airport to Playasola was smooth and family friendly. The trip highlight, aside from the beautiful location, was the committment of the staff to ensure all of our needs were looked after. The meals that Marta and Omberto provided everyday were 5 star dining experiences and the service that Rudy delivered went above and beyond expectations. This also included making special meals for the kids everyday....they probably have never cooked so many hotdogs and French fries.
With 5 grandchildren under 8 years of age the pool and beach provided them hours of fun.
Housekeeping staff kept the house very clean and ensured that our needs were looked after.
Would recommend this holiday location to anyone.
Playasola was one of the best vacation homes our family of 17 (ages 7 to 80) has ever rented! The home is lovely- clean & new in an unbelievably beautiful setting. The full staff was amazing!! Bene, our daytime cook, made the best scones & paella ever! Sergio & Luis are first rate servers, bartenders & "go to guys" - able to answer all questions & make sure our every need was met. They went out of their way to make our visit perfect & their margaritas were delicioso!! Our housekeepers, Chely & Jessie, were excellent. Juan, our evening chef made dinners that were out of this world. Primo, the onsite home caretaker, helped us with any & all questions/ needs. The entire experience was top notch. We highly recommend Playasola & would love to return one day. Thank you so very much!!
Playasola was the perfect getaway for our family vacation. There were 14 of us and the accommodations fit us perfectly. We rented both the main house and the upper cabana and there was plenty of room for our large group. We loved being able to gather in common areas near the beautiful infinity pool or the beach, and eat meals together at the large dining table inside. We had access to the modern conveniences of WIFI and AV equipment to play music or use the large screen TVs.
Now about the staff: WOW! They were friendly, knowledgeable and served our every need. Chef Juan prepared amazing meals that were beautifully presented, and Sergio and Rudy took care of every other need we had, from specially prepared beverages to recommendations and arrangements for activities we could enjoy, including zip lining, an ATV excursion, and trips to Puerto Vallarta and Yelapa.
My recommendation: RENT PLAYASOLA!
Our vacation to Playasola was a dream vacation. Beautiful accommodations with unbelievable views and untouchable service. The staff of Primo, Luis and Sergio were amazing and took care of our every need. The meals prepared by Marta and Juan were beyond what we could have imagined. Having a private beach and private pool while being able to walk to Las Animas Beach and to a local town was the best of both worlds. Sitting in the pool and being pampered with great drinks was amazing. The facilities offered everything we wanted including the workout facilities, rooms with amazing views and private bathrooms, the pool overlooking the bay, and the beach. We were able to enjoy the company of our friends without any hassle of trying to decide where or what to eat. I cannot say enough about the house and how the staff treated us. They were awesome! From the time we landed until the time we left, the treatment we received was truly exceptional. I highly recommend this trip to everyone
