Overview

About the property

7200 Sq. Ft. Villa, Full-Sized Pool, 4 Bedrooms, Great Views And Many Upgrades

Casa Alegre, our new luxury residence, was just finished. It features four bedrooms, five baths and has 4200 sq. ft. of indoor air-conditioned space along with another 3000 sq. ft. of outdoor patio, pool deck and terrace space. It is a wonderful place to relax and unwind amid the natural beauty of Punta Mita and the designer inspired decorating throughout the residence. It is located within the El Encanto community of the gated Punta Mita resort. El Encanto is a private home enclave that has its own gate and 24/7 security staff.

We specifically designed and decorated our home to create a feeling of casual elegance. The outdoor family room, dining room, courtyard and pool all flow seamlessly with the indoor space and decorating to provide an overall feeling of harmony, spaciousness and optimism. It was important to us that we create an atmosphere of comfortable style, fun and fashion. We believe we have done so. Casa Alegre, which means house of Joy, has many amenities and features including:

-Magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean, Puerto Vallarta and Sierra Madres Mountains. We never tire of these views and in the winter months they are enhanced by the whales who visit annually and are seen playing just off-shore.

-Daily housekeeping Monday through Saturday. Private cook for breakfast, lunch and dinner is also available for an extra charge.

-A full sized swimming pool with water and gas fire pit features.

-Outdoor family room with 50 inch HDTV and gas fire place.

-Outdoor kitchen with gas BBQ grill, refrigerator and sink.

-Fully appointed and large indoor kitchen with wine refrigerator and breakfast bar.

-Large indoor living room with 70 inch HDTV.

-Fully enclosed outdoor courtyard with four large palm trees and a relaxing water wall. Courtyard can also be used as a fifth bedroom in a pinch with queen-sized Aero bed that comes with the residence.

-Spacious master bedroom suite with king bed, grand master bath, covered outdoor terrace with jaw dropping ocean views, HDTV and a Keurig coffee bar/refrigerator.

-Three additional bedrooms, one with a king bed, one with two queen beds and one with two full size beds.

-Six person golf cart.

-Large garage for rental car and golf cart.

-State of the art AV system featuring three large screen HDTV sets and Sonos sound system.

-Full access to the Residents' Beach Club and limited access to the St. Regis Beach Club.

-Full access to the resort's tennis courts, both golf courses and fitness centers at prevailing rates.

-Daily housekeeping and light breakfast service six days a week (not Sunday).

-Services of property management company and house concierge.

We are very pleased with the way our new home has turned out. It is very much a place you can relax in yet do so with a sense of comfort, elegance and style. While Casa Alegre is too new to have any reviews from guests yet, we have owned a three bedroom villa in the same El Encanto section of Punta Mita for five years and have rented it many times during this period.

About Brian Williams

We have owned in Punta Mita for ten years now. We continue to own property at the Four Seasons Residence Club (VRBO Listing #393019), an El Encanto three bedroom condo (VRBO Listing #393233) and now, Casa Alegre our beautiful four bedroom home.

I retired three years ago and thanks to VRBO have become, unwittingly, a part time vacation rental agent! In addition to our Punta Mita property we also own a residence in Kiawah Island, SC that we now rent when not there ourselves. Fortunately, we have great property managers in each location who do all the heavy lifting when it comes to taking great care of our guests (and us) while in residence.

Our whole family (three daughters pictured above) love Punta Mita and try and get down as often as possible. We used to go to Maui, Hawaii every year then we discovered Punta Mita and have not been back to Hawaii since. For us, Punta Mita is friendlier, less expensive, more welcoming and more beautiful than Hawaii. And, as we live in the Chicago area, it is only a four hour non-stop flight away that is in the same time zone. The five time zone difference and red-eye flight back from Hawaii increasingly held little appeal to us. Barb and I spend about ten weeks a year in Punta Mita while our daughters get there, on average, for about seven days. Typically, this is for Thanksgiving week where we have now mastered the art of preparing Thanksgiving dinner even to the point of knowing where to buy cranberries...no small feat in Mexico!

We love Punta Mita. I am an avid golfer, tennis player and margarita enjoyer and there is plenty of each to keep me busy whenever there. We have made great new friends of fellow homeowners in Punta Mita and look forward each year to seeing them when everyone is in residence during the winter months. If we could pick only one vacation destination in which to own, it would be Punta Mita. And, it would be Casa Alegre.

Brian Williams purchased this house in 2015

Why Brian Williams chose Punta Mita

It is beautiful home that has been built and decorated to feel casually elegance and create a sense of joy and optimism.

Our home also comes with full housekeeping services Monday through Saturday. Full size washer and dryer are available for renters use to do their own laundry. A private cook for dinners and lunches is also available when booked in advance for an extra fee.

What makes this house unique

We tried to build touches into the home that made it feel a bit special. These include a fully enclosed courtyard with water wall feature, a coffee bar/refrigerator in the master bedroom suite, an outdoor family room with gas fireplace and 50 inch HDTV, an outdoor dining/kitchen area with grill and refrigerator that is separate from the large fully equipped indoor kitchen and a magnificent terrace off of the master bedroom suite that has jaw dropping views. Casa Alegre also has daily housekeeping Monday through Saturday. Finally, our house concierge will handle all of your pre and post arrival needs. This includes things like airport transfers, renting of cars and/or golf carts, the booking of tours and expeditions/fishing trips, dinner reservations, the stocking of the house with food and beverages and the like.

Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This past June we spent our family vacation at Casa Allegre and it has, to date, been our most memorable trip. The house was beautiful, immaculate, spacious and comfortable. We had gorgeous, ocean front views from the master, the living room and the patio. Days were spent by the infinity pool, complete with sound system, loungers and fresh pitchers of lemonade, margaritas, quacamole and chips. We had daily cleaning and cooking and concierge service. Access to the Kupuri Beach club was close enough to ride the house golf cart to and a fun place to have lunch and hang out by the beach. Last minute we enlisted the help of Gio, the on hand concierge, and hired a local photographer to capture the beauty of our family with the Punta Mita backdrop.... priceless. I highly recommend Casa Allegre and look forward to returning.

Fabulous week at Casa Alegre - AMAZING property!!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house! My husband and I stayed at Casa Alegre last April along with my best friend and her teenage daughter and niece and also my brother-in-law and sister-in-law and our two young nieces (total of 9 of us). The house was perfect for our group. We loved getting up in the morning and having breakfast made for us and really getting to relax and then also heading out for excursions in the surrounding area. The pool and outdoor area is fantastic and we also enjoyed watching movies on the patio outside at night. Everything was exactly as described and the property is immaculately cared for. We have stayed in Punta Mita about a half a dozen times and this was by far the nicest property we have rented. Also, the owner, Brian, was very easy to communicate with. I HIGHLY recommend Casa Alegre!!!

Even better than we imagined!

  • 5 of 5

So impressed with this stunning home! We are spoiled travelers and we were absolutely thrilled with this choice. The house has everything. The views are simply spectacular. The owner is very easy going and a pleasure to work with. The staff was also very nice and extremely accommodating. We had access to all the beach clubs and we had a lot of fun going into the town. We felt very safe with all of our kids. We look forward to returning and we would recommend this home to anyone!

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this amazing home for nine days. I can’t say enough wonderful things about this property. I will start with the property itself – beautifully decorated and immaculate. It is perfect for large groups as it offers beautiful common areas but also the privacy of four lovely bedroom suites. The outdoor space and pool are AMAZING!

The location is fantastic as well; the residence is secluded enough so you feel like you are in your own little oasis but is also within walking distance to several restaurants and a short drive in the golf cart to town and other hotels within the gates. Speaking of the gates, we were very impressed with the security at both the El Encanto gate as well as the Punta Mita resort gate. Both security stations were very thorough in monitoring who was coming and going.

We spent a few days relaxing at the home, hanging in the pool and watching sunsets. We also spent a few days at the Kupuri Beach Club, which has restaurants, bars, activities and a great beach. It was really nice to have access to the beach clubs within the Punta Mita gates, especially with our two young kiddos.

The best part of our stay was Claudia. She is a sweet, sweet woman who runs the house and works incredibly hard. She truly made our stay a top-notch experience. I looked forward to her warm smile and “Buenos Dias” each morning. She made an amazing breakfast, kept the house tidy and is a true gem of a person. Gio, the house concierge, was also fantastic. He was responsive and helped with an additional golf cart rental, in-home massages, and a catered dinner at the home. The owners were fantastic to work with; kind people who are very attentive.

We will be back, that is for sure!

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful home, the pictures don't do it justice! It was like being on a Hollywood set. Just spectacular views and accommodations! Everything you could every want. Two beautiful private clubs that you can go to by golf cart, as well as being close to town for dinners, or the St.Regis and the Four Seasons. Lovely staff and the owner was a pleasure to deal with--very responsive and easy to work with. We can't wait to return!

Punta Mita Perfection

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit (2 adults, 3 college age kids) to Punta Mita and thoroughly enjoyed Casa Alegra. Spectacular home, views, staff (cleaning and concierge) and amenities. Relaxing by the pool with spectacular views of Banderas Bay as well as the stars/moon at night was a favorite of everyone's. Owner a pleasure to deal with (this was our second rental with this owner) - thoughtful, responsive, helpful, etc... Access to 2 "Owner's Beach Clubs" (food service, equipment rentals, pretty beaches, etc.), 2 golf courses, running paths, etc.., all in a beautiful and safe gated environment, offer a variety of activities. Punta di Mita, the quaint, adjacent beach town offers many additional restaurants and activities (whale watching, surf lessons, bike trips and more) and is a short golf cart ride away. Another memorable trip!
