Welcome to Casa Canta Rana, a new contemporary beachfront villa on the north shore of the Bay of Banderas. The villa is located 30 minutes north of the Puerto Vallarta Airport and five minutes from the Four Seasons Resort at Punta de Mita. It's been featured in Fodor's Guide and Vallarta Style Magazine. The estate is perfectly situated between three famous surf breaks within paddling distance.
This magnificent villa is designed to give you the ultimate beachfront experience and indoor/outdoor living of the highest standard and all the possible amenities that you could expect.
The electronically gated villa is located on approximately one acre of oceanfront landscaped tropical gardens in a very private guarded gated community 20 minutes north of the Puerto Vallarta International Airport and very close to the new Four Seasons Resort at Punta de Mita.
Casa Canta Rana is a new contemporary Mexican beach villa on a bluff overlooking the north shore of the Bay of Banderas. It blends the best of modern conveniences with accents of traditional Mexico. There is a private beach with access from the villa to miles of beach, great swimming, snorkeling and surfing in front of the villa.
There is a completely private Palapa with built in furniture and phone on the way to the beach. Casa Canta Rana has a 40' free-form heated pool between the ocean and the house. It is surrounded by stone patios and shaded areas with furniture and a wet bar. The pool and Jacuzzi are both tiled with Italian glass tiles and overlook the coastline.
The villa has a very open floor plan but all rooms can be closed with sliding glass walls and are individually air conditioned. All rooms have unobstructed views to the Bay and Puerto Vallarta and the Marietta Islands. Casa Canta Rana is located near the entrance of the bay so that it is protected but still enjoys the feel of the open Pacific Ocean.
The villa consists of three suites and one private casita, all of which have private outside terraces and marble baths. Two suites have an indoor and outdoor shower with private sunning areas. The suites on the second floor share a Palapa with a built in sofa. The ground floor suite has direct access to the gardens and pool. The Casita consits of a large bedroom, wet bar, marble bath with indoor and outdoor showers. There is also a deck and lush gardens surrounding the casita.
The kitchen is state of the art with granite counters and mahogany cabinetry. All appliances that you would expect are available. The kitchen will seat six and the outdoor dinning palapa will seat eight to ten. There is state of the art water purification and all tap water is potable.

Canta Rana exceeded our expectations. We were unaware of the staff availability and were pleasantly surprised to have been greeted with cocktails and appetizers upon our arrival. Jose the manager was a wonderful asset to the property. He was professional, friendly, helpful and very accommodating. Veronica\'s cooking was better than any restaurant in Punta Mita. The property is located in a secluded area within a private gated community. The house was exactly what we were looking for, yet the beauty exceeded our expectations. We loved the open areas - had a great time eating, drinking and visiting on the main terrace.
