The Puerto Vallarta sun shines above and the ocean laps gently below at Casa Peña del Mar. Set on the Bay of Banderas, with panoramic views of the water and the iconic Los Arcos formations, this luxury vacation rental is one of just nine custom villas in the exclusive Sierra del Mar at Los Arcos community. With inviting indoor-outdoor living spaces, private beach club access and a newly added master suite, the property is equally suited to a relaxed family holiday, warm-weather getaway with friends or a romantic escape.
The villa’s name translates to “sea rock,” and you can indeed enjoy views of the distinctive stone features from the row of lounge chairs, heated infinity pool and hot tub on the oceanfront terrace. A palapa provides a shaded respite from the sun, and a barbecue, wet bar and al-fresco dining area invite you to linger outside into the evening. Of course, there’s also a sound system, satellite TV, and a games room with a pool table to tempt you indoors. Your stay includes two meals each day from the villa’s chef, the services of other staff, and access to the community’s beach club, shared pool, fitness center, sauna and steam room.
The outdoor spaces are connected to the villa’s interiors by glass walls, which can be folded back to create one seamless living area. Ocean breezes waft over the sitting area, where a roomy sectional is accented by traditional otomi pillows, and the formal dining area, which seats eight around a glass-topped table. The cheerful fully equipped kitchen has a large breakfast bar and state-of-the-art appliances.
Five bedrooms, three of which have en-suite bathrooms and two of which share a bathroom, can easily accommodate groups of friends or families traveling together. The sixth bedroom, a recent addition, is a 1,000-square foot ocean-view master suite with a king bed, twin bed, en-suite bathroom, private terrace and its own kitchenette and lounge area, and could be used as an in-law retreat or even a honeymoon suite.
From the villa’s setting in the South Zone of Puerto Vallarta, it’s a 4-minute walk to the private beach belonging to the Sierra del Mar at Los Arcos community, a 3-minute drive to Playa las Gemelas and fantastic snorkeling at Los Arcos National Park, and a 10-minute drive to the cafés, shops and historic streets of Puerto Vallarta’s charming Romantic Zone. If it’s simply not a vacation without a round or two, book a tee time at the nearby Marina Vallarta golf course.
