North Shore - Punta de Mita Real Estate
Punta de Mita, as a region, actually stretches down the North Shore coastline and northwards to Sayulita. But for our interests here, it is limited to the small towns of Emiliano Zapata and El Coral del Risco, and the development of Punta Mita. These three communities share the point of Punta de Mita, and are nearly completely surrounded by ocean.
Zapata and El Coral have a few small boutique condominium projects along the waterfront and mostly single family dwelling behind. El Anclote Beach, in El Coral, is the most active area, lined with beachfront restaurants and a couple of small hotels. Its a popular place for people to go to the beach for the day, at is provides excellent access to the bay and the Marietas Islands. As well, its a favorite place to see the whales during high season.
Punta Mita is a gated, residential real estate mega-development consisting of 1,500-plus acres property that encompasses the northerly point of Banderas Bay. Featuring a luxurious beach club, the neighboring 19-hole Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course (yes, "19", there are two #3 holes), is consistently voted as one of the best in the world by the Conde Nast publications. A second 18-hole course, also by Nicklaus, opened in 2009, and is called Bahia. There are two luxury hotels at Punta Mita, The Four Seasons and the St. Regis.The Four Seasons offers full-time Four Seasons Villas, with the services of the Four Seasons hotel, as well as offering a fractional component as well.
Punta Mita real estate involves luxury homes and condominiums situated along the beach, golf fairways and on the hillside behind the Four Seasons hotel, with prices starting at around one million USD, providing some of the most expensive real estate in the region.
