The beach patio with hammocks says it all. Factor in the manicured courtyard with dramatic uplighting at night, a junior-olympic sized pool, walking distance to tourist districts and full staff service and the search is over.

Villa Encanto has new owners who have made numerous upgrades to this long-time favorite of repeat visitors. Baths have been updated, dual pane windows installed, terraces have new tile and patio furniture.

This walled estate sits on a half-acre lot on the south end of the Zona Dorada tourist district near the Royal Decameron Hotel, a local landmark in Bucerias. Two famous restaurants are within blocks of the villa: Mark’s Grill and Karen’s Place.

Villa Encanto has 5 ensuite bedrooms in the main villa and a guest house at the other end of  the pool with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. The entrance to the villa is on the side. The pool is on the inland side of the villa; the main living area and two of the bedrooms face the ocean. The other three bedrooms in the main villa look onto the pool area.

On the ocean side of the villa, the living and dining area extend to the grass lawn and gardens with a hacienda-style fountain and classic arches that lead to a fenced patio with a lounging area shaded by palms and a step down to miles and miles of beach. The waters are calmer on this side of the bay and safe for swimmers.

Bucerias is a charming town just north of the airport. Lots of North Americans make their home here year-round and the savvy locals from Puerto Vallarta come on the weekends for the fashionable beach clubs and wind surfing. Two fabulous yacht marinas anchor each side of town: Paradise Village in Nuevo Vallarta to the south and La Cruz de Huanacaxtle to the north. The posh Four Seasons Punta Mita is a short drive past La Cruz as is the ultra-hip Sayulita. Some of the best golf courses in Mexico are within a minutes of the villa.

The location makes for unlimited dining and sight-seeing possibilities without having to venture to Puerto Vallarta, approximately 45-minute drive south to Old Town. With a full staff serving food and drink at your private villa, you may never want to leave that beach hammock under the palm tree.
