On The Beach – Over the Top!In mid January this year – we had an opening in our travel calendar and decided to meet up with some friends in Punta Mita MX. We enjoy our privacy and decided to rent our own condo unit for our 10 day stay. My husband is a stickler for details and searched the internet for available rentals on the Four Seasons Property, and two other locations along the Riviera Nayarit coast.
We sent a handful of questions to the owner to confirm it would work for us. The quick responses from the MIKE the Property Manager for HDM206 to our questions made us decide to book this ocean front condo.
We used email to confirm details such as transport to and from the airport to the property, availability of house staff and access to site restaurants, beaches and other amenities. As this was our first time renting from this owner, we did ask many questions up front to ensure no surprises when we arrived. The owner’s driver met us at the airport – quickly packed up our bags and off we went. A cooler with ice cold waters and juices was provided for the ride up to the Four Seasons resort.
On arrival to the condo the driver carried our bags to the condo for us and we were welcomed with a beautiful basket of assorted fruits, snacks, etc. There was a complimentary fully stocked bar including red wine in the dining area (very nice touch), the fridge was stocked with a variety of cold waters and juices, beer, salsa guacamole chips etc. The grocery list we had provided was completed and checked with house staff to ensure our needs were met.
The view was spectacular. It was like having a private beach all to ourselves. We settled in quickly. The furnishings were even more luxurious than advertised and the photos on the website.
For future reference the added bonus of the updated nanny room was a pleasant surprise. The furnishings and art were over the top and far in excess of what you’d get at the Four Seasons Resort or at any condo we’ve ever rented in the past!
The house staff was available for the duration of our stay. They kept the suite immaculate and we never had to ask for additional cleaning as they picked up and cleaned continuously. Sliding into crisp ironed sheets every evening was the perfect ending to every day. This service was better than what we received at Four Seasons Resort. The food was over the top. We entertained on 3 occasions and the dinner service was seamless and our guests were all pleased with the evenings especially the delicious flan desserts prepared in house.
We don’t speak Spanish so we had a few language issues with the cook, yet she seemed to understand as every meal was cooked and presented to perfection.
As for the staff – the Concierge was always helpful with reservations and directions. We stayed on site and had no reason to leave. We made good use of the gym and spa in the mornings and headed down to the beach club most afternoons.
We took a chance renting this lavish condo off the internet and will now place into our favorites list. It was a superb rental delivering more than what we expected. We recommend that you do ask questions up front – the property manager was more than helpful to explain what was included and all of the multiple services available from their concierge. Definitely a 10 plus on our list – Can’t wait to bring the whole family along next stay – we’ll definitely be back again!!.
