Casa Pacifico is an elegant, yet casual 5 Bedroom, 5 1/2 bath coastal residence situated on a large corner lot, in the heart of the North Shore at Punta del Burro; a private, beachfront gated community of approximately 40 luxury homes.
This stunning residence boasts a remarkable open floor plan capturing breathtaking views of Banderas Bay and the surrounding Sierra Madre mountain range, where it opens up to the grand Pacific.
Designed by the noted architects Ruben Alvarez Ibarra & Enrique Garcia, and built by premier local contractor, Juan Pablo Stone, the home combines traditional Mexican style elements with an exceptional floor plan and high-quality construction. The two-story entry leads to a combined living, dining and kitchen area featuring ample natural lighting, vaulted ceilings and wonderful indoor/outdoor flow.
The spacious interior living area seamlessly opens up (via folding doors) to an expansive terrace complete with a large infinity pool (suitable for lap swimming), ample sunbathing space and an entertaining Palapa. The terrace offers extraordinary views while creating a peaceful lounge atmosphere and wonderful tropical breezes. A master bedroom, guest suite, large servant’s quarters and two car garage complete the first level.
The second level features 2 bedrooms, each with full en-suite bathrooms and exceptional elevated ocean views. The lower level offers an oversized, intimate and very private 5th bedroom with a full bath and a private, fenced terrace leading to the remarkable tropical garden area.
This exceptional home on a rare and ample corner lot combines privacy and views amidst mature tropical landscaping. Convenient access to the beach through the garden path to a neighborhood lane is a mere 150 feet away. A surfer’s paradise beckons with surf breaks on each end of the mile long sandy beachfront.
The residence is located in the Punta del Burro seaside neighborhood, on the North Shore of the Bay of Banderas, approximately 8 kilometers south of the Punta Mita Resort. The community is gated with professional management and excellent security. A beautifully cobblestoned and lighted entry road leads to a gatehouse and security checkpoint. The grounds and beach are patrolled by a security team. The sandy beach has been used for several seasons as a Sea Turtle sanctuary and on its west end, the beach is the well-known “Burros Surf Break”.
THE HOMEOWNERS’ ASSOCIATION
Punta del Burro is cooperatively managed by Hogares Vista Punta Del Burro AC, a Mexican Colonial Association (“Hogares”). Hogares elects a 5-member resident Board of Directors each year at an annual meeting which takes place on the 4th Saturday every February. The community owns and operates the internal streets, the 24 x 7 security gate and the underground water, electrical and internet systems that serve all of the homes. Hogares is also charged with the responsibility to enforce the Health & Safety, Land Use and View Protection rules adopted by the AC that apply to all lots in the community. The Board oversees True Management Services who’s staff of 11 people provide daily security, property management and maintenance services for the community. True manages Punta del Burro and most of the condominiums and residential communities inside the Four Seasons Gates and has on staff engineers and accountants with strong expertise in managing the common areas and utilities owned by our community.
Completed in 2002, the home has had one set of owners. We have used the home regularly for personal and family vacations. When not in residence, we offer the house for rent on the VRBO web site (Vacation Rentals By Owner). The rental income over the years has enabled us to improve and maintain the house at a very low annual out of pocket cost. The operating results for the last 5 years can be made available for your review. We have comment books with input from our guests. Please feel free to ask to read some of the reviews!
