Playasola- private beach, infinity pool- jacuzzi & sports complex
Description from the manager
Spanish for lone beach, Playasola is a quintessential oceanfront villa located in the exclusive Mismaloya area of the Bay of Banderas. You will be perfectly poised for the ultimate beach holiday at this three acre property. The villa boasts a private sand beach. Sheltered by a magnificent rock cropping as the mountains reach the ocean, your private sandy cove is free of passers-by. The seclusion and resplendence of this villa has also made it a popular spot for weddings and other events.
Playasola offers the seclusion and luxury of an island-like property amid a mix of beach palapas, cantera terraces and a private sports complex with a night lit tennis court, basketball court, beach volleyball and fitness facility. The pristine, curved infinity pool with swim-up bar is nestled in the lush tropical foliage and provides uninterrupted sea views. Or take a well deserved soak in the outdoor Jacuzzi. The alfresco experience is rounded out with a kitchen palapa, wet bar, a lovely dining area and a gas grill. Indoors, you will find a home entertainment system with satellite TV, surround sound, iPod dock and Xbox 360 console. Wi-Fi access, office equipment and purified water are provided for your convenience and peace of mind. Your reservation includes a chef service, wait staff, bartender, housekeeping and security guard.
The capacious living and dining areas inside offer comfortable and stylish furnishings and stellar ocean vistas. The impressive gourmet kitchen comes with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and a large center island. High ceilings and brilliant finishes provide an airy and breezy atmosphere throughout this magnificent home.
Eight immaculate bedrooms accommodate up to sixteen fortunate guests at Playasola. Five bedrooms, with en-suite bathrooms, are located in the main house, and three bedrooms with air conditioning and satellite TVs are situated in a separate casita. Family friendly throughout, all the main house suites include air conditioning, ceiling fans, satellite TVs and waterfront decks.
Guests of Playasola will be picked up at the airport by private drivers and driven to the Boca Pier. They are then greeted by staff members who assist with luggage and guide guests onto a private water taxi for a picturesque eight minute coastal ride directly to the villa. With all of the amenities available on-site, many choose to partake in the most popular activity: relaxing on the beach. As you watch the boats coast by and the waves ebb and flow, you may just wonder how the week slipped by so quickly!

Guests are picked up at the airport by private drivers in one or two white suburbans and driven to Boca pier. There, they are greeted by staff members who assist with luggage and guide guests onto one or two private water taxis. An 8-minute coastal ride has guests arriving on the sand, directly in front of Playasola. Twenty feet from sand arrival are the cantera steps, leading to the beach palapa, terraces and villa of Playasola.
Water taxis are available day and night, as it is the primary method of transportation to these tourist-catering towns on the south coast of Puerto Vallarta. The drivers all have cell phones, so a water taxi can be in front of the house within 5 minutes, for an 8 minute ride to the main Boca pier and then a 20 minute drive to downtown Puerto Vallarta.
There is a nice horseback trip at the town next door, 10 minutes south, called Quimixto. It offers a 20-minute horseback ride up to a waterfall, with a nice restaurant at the base of the waterfall.
The caretakers, Primativo and Araceli, live onsite in the lower level staff quarters (accessed by a separate side entrance). They are available if any urgent need arises after hours. Otherwise, they are unseen after hours, leaving the house for guests private enjoyment.
Please note that the Casita is never rented separately from Playasola villa

Our party of 10 thoroughly enjoyed our week at Villa Playasola. It had just the right combination of privacy with accessibility. The house was very large, well appointed with large rooms. The staff (particularly Luis and Juan) we fantastic. Juan cooked some of the most amazing dinners and Luis was always available to make our favorite drinks or make arrangements for excursions and transportation into town. The sandy beach was beautiful and our group enjoyed both the tennis and sand volleyball courts. Highly recommend Playasola.
"a real luxury retreat, isolated only if you feel like it, in par"

Private beach where everything comes to you if you wish, sport, pampering... The staff is friendly and efficient and this part of the coast is gorgeous, the forest goes straight into the sea. Beautiful house, very well decorated, comfortable and very well equiped (music, tennis court, beach volley, canoes.. You feel at home far from home and can relax. Members of our family already plan to come, some with children and grand children, some with their friends. A lot cheaper than a luxury hotel when you travel with your family but with a luxury hotel service and absolutely private. Wonderful concierge service, everything is set to your taste before your arrive ! - Jérôme and Isabelle B., , France

My family and friends were so lucky to have been able to share such a great time together at a fantastic beautiful relaxing oasis. Playasola was everything we had hoped it would be and more. The staff was very professional and attentive. Martha and Louis made sure breakfast and lunch were exactly what we wanted, all of our meals were wonderful. Louis\'s service was spot on always there when we needed him or another drink. Martha\'s meals were not only tasty but presented with flair. The grounds were prefect and well maintained. The rooms and Villa were exceptionialy clean. Juan and Chicho kept up the same exceptional service in the afternoon and evening. Juan prepared five star quality dinners all exceptional. Chicho was extremely personsable and attentive.Drinks were always full and everyone happy. The staff went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect for our stay. I could not have been happier. - Chris A., California, USA

I don\'t think I have the words to express just how awesome it was. But let me try with a bit of humor. I received the following email this morning (our first day home) from one of our guest who joined us for the celebration. It was titled “Horrible Nightmare!!!” Hola everyone, I had to tell you about the worst nightmare I’ve ever experienced last night. I woke up and could not see the ocean from bed, there were no people sitting by the pool drinking coffee early in the morning, no delicious breakfast prepared by Martha, no lounge chairs by the beach, no sun, no laughing, no tennis, no lunch, no beautiful and visual tasty dinner from Umberto, and worst of all……… NO CHICHO TO BRING ME MY DRINK!!!! And even more frightening… when I woke up I was in New Jersey!!! What happened???????? Did anyone of you have the same experience? Maybe we caught something while on vacation cause I feel sick now that I am not at Playasola :-(\" All guest and we feel the same way. \" - Randy P., Texas, USA

We were thrilled with our experience at Playasola; worth every penny - the villa is luxurious and the service provided by booking, finance, guest relations and the staff on-site was phenomenal. We cannot wait to return to Playasola! - Mark B., ,
