2 Bdrm Villa, Pool, Walk to Beach, Glorious Sunset

MARIPOSA VILLA is located on a hill overlooking the bay, in a BEAUTIFUL SECURE COMPOUND with two rentals & the owner's villa.

The picturesque town of La Penita is on the lush Mexican Riviera, 40 miles N of the Puerto Vallarta Airport (we can arrange airport pickup to our gate). This is a secure private compound filled with flowers, palms, & bougainvilleas - few pesky flying insects in the winter season - gorgeous POOL - EASY WALK to THE BEACH & all the town's shops, ATM etc. Mariposa Villa is picturesque, sheer fun to live in, and the low food prices - whether it's produce, restaurants, or fresh fish - add to La Penita's charm!

Additional Location Information

(1) A BEAUTIFUL LOCATION in a residential neighborhood high on a hill in La Penita de Jaltemba.
(3) BREATHTAKING VIEWS of Jaltemba Bay lined by beaches, cliffs, and foothills with jungle right down to the ocean's edge ....
(4) TOTALLY SAFE to WALK IN TOWN DAY OR NIGHT, or the side streets. No guest has ever been bothered - or even whistled at!
(5) MANY EXCELLENT RESTAURANTS from ultra fine dining with ambiance equal to 2 star dining in France! - To rustic Mexican restaurants & taco stands. Wherever you dine, try the flan. (Libby is hooked!) We keep you posted on any special music or dancing included while you dine! The neighboring town of Rincon de Guayabitos, reachable by taxi for $3 or a unique "hand bridge" across the river, is great for music & dining as well.
(4) GLORIOUS PACIFIC SUNSETS .... see photos
(5) A PRIVATE VILLA COMPOUNDM surrounded by a high wall festooned with colorful bougainvilleas ....
(6) QUIET with very little traffic ....
(7) A mixed neighborhood in a picturesque village with all the amenities you would find in a small city: Hospital, banks, ATM, modern dental clinic. ....
(8) Staples round the corner: A 'mini-super' & an internet cafe ....
(9) An outstanding FAMILY PHYSICIAN lives nearby & makes house calls when needed ....
(10) Just a few blocks downhill is a large high quality produce stand, a tortilla factory, taco stands, hardware store, & other intriguing shops. ....
(11) "LA AVENIDA", the 'business district', is a boulevard with benches on a wide median strip, and that starts just 5 blocks away and runs straight to our La Penita Beach. It is lined with all kinds of fascinating shops, run by Mexican families. The nearby rodeo arena hosts an annual first class circus, horse shows, AND the high school marching band practices there regularly several evenings a week, easily heard on our hill, a TREAT TO LISTEN TO in the night .....
(12} Our LA PENITA BEACH is famous for its clean silky golden sand. No hotels were allowed to build on this beach so the water is especially clean...
You can SURF the waves or SNORKEL off the large island in the bay, "better than the Australian Reefs" according to guests.....
(13} An ELEGANT MANSION with B&B; (up one block to the hill crest) serves 'elegant' Saturday & Sunday brunches. It overlooks the bay & Pacific on one side and the rear side overlooks a huge agricultural valley with horseback riding from a corral & bicycling on smooth dirt roads.....
(14) PARKING inside the villa walls is totally secure & it's safe to leave your car street side. NO vandalism in 14 years & we frequently leave our own car out overnight.
(15) TAXIS are a 5 minute wait, cost 25 pesos (about $2+) for 2 persons anywhere in La Penita. $3 to Guayabitos. There is a 2nd TAXI STAND NEAR THE BEACH, making it handy to get back to our villa after a long beach walk or when laden down with groceries or treasures from the open air market on Thursday.
(16) WHALE WATCH in the bay from a boat. We can see Humpbacks spout and flip from our Palapa.
A bus station & major taxi stand are 6 blocks from our villa, just off the coastal highway. In addition, 'combi' vans can drop you off at a superb yoga center in Guayabitos, a coffee shop close to the ocean, or a 'hamburger cafe"' with a huge book swap (great hamburgers & mango smoothies).
