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 Nayarit

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.

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!

perfect way to experience the charms of Punta Mita

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed in Punta Mita several times because we love the atmosphere and friendly staff, but this venue was our favorite so far. A private home offers much more space than a hotel or condo, while still allowing access to the resort amenities. Three couples or a large family would be quite comfortable in this villa. The house is beautifully appointed, fresh, and airy. Kitchenware, linens and furniture are top of the line. We especially enjoyed the outdoor spaces and sitting by a sizable pool with fantastic views of golf and the bay. There’s an outdoor grill and even an outdoor television! The location is also great and you feel like you’re in the middle of everything Punta Mita has to offer. The owners were always responsive and helpful. We will definitely be going back.

My husband and I visited Punta de Mita over Thanksgiving and had the pleasure of staying in this magnificent home. We particularly loved the outdoor pool and patio that overlooked the Banderas Bay. Watching the sunrise and boats floating on the horizon was a favorite memory we shared from this trip. The furnishings were exceptionally well done and made you feel at home while on vacation. The patio features an outdoor TV and fireplace, where we watched movies together as a family. While Punta de Mita features a number of delicious restaurants we did cook at home for Thanksgiving and were pleasantly surprised to find the houses kitchen was fully equip to handle a big family meal. Having an onsite cleaning lady and your own golf cart, all provided with the house, made vacationing a breeze. I would recommend this home to anyone who wishes to visit Punta de Mita. The house offers all the comforts of a five star resort with the privacy of having your own home.

Beautifully decorated home with amazing pool, outdoor living area and views that can't be beat!

  • 5 of 5

The first thing I can say about my stay at this lovely private residence is it was too short. 9 days here was amazing and left me wanting to move-in forever. Punta Mita alone is a wonderful, relaxing and beautiful place to be with so many excellent restaurant, golf and beach choices - and our stay at Casa Alegre was the icing on the cake.

We found the home expertly decorated, with authentic Mexican crafts mixed with bright happy colors and comfortable furnishings. The full chefs kitchen and grill were perfect for meals in and it was even better having the private cook prepare us breakfast and lunch as well.

Possibly, the best part of Casa Alegre was the vast outdoor space and infinity-edge pool. There was ample seating for lounging, sunning or reading the NYT's in the morning during BEAUTIFUL sunrises. The pool was large and even had a waterfall with a fire feature on it! At night we spent some great evenings watching movies on the outdoor tv and eating dinner al fresco (when we weren't jumping on the golf cart to eat at the St. Regis or Private Owner's Beach Club).

We would come back here in a heartbeat and absolutely plan to next year. The owners we're helpful, responsive and provided us with a great list of activities, tips and restaurants - Si Señor and Sufi being out favorites. Highly recommend this piece of paradise in Punta Mita.
