Casa Don Juan, a spacious, architect-designed home, is located in Punta el Custodio, a secure, gated community of 14 captivating homes set between a 12 mile stretch of palm-studded sandy beach and a wide green crescent of authentic Mexican countryside dotted with small rural villages, farmlands and tropical fruit plantations.
The upscale vacation rental is set on a rocky point jutting out into the Pacific Ocean at the northern extreme of the newly designated Riviera Nayarit, a world-renowned surf destination, 75 miles north of Puerto Vallarta. Punto el Custodio is surrounded by jungle and estuary and backed by high, rugged volcanic mountains.
Casa Don Juan, constructed entirely from local materials, blends into the surrounding landscape. The elegant, open-concept living room catches the cool ocean breeze on hot summer days. The luxurious home features a library, well-appointed kitchen, a top level terrace with a fabulous ocean view, a lush, tropical courtyard garden, dipping pool and several patio lounge areas.
Two casually elegant upstairs bedrooms have air conditioning, full washrooms, sitting areas and private outdoor patios with fabulous ocean views. The other 2 spacious, comfortable bedrooms are housed in private casitas connected to the main home by a series of rock gardens. Casa Don Juan is intimate enough to enjoy the company of the neighbours and large enough to find your own private space in paradise.
Since Casa Don Juan is in a secluded area, meals packages are recommended. Ismael and his friendly, hospitable staff take dietary preferences and requirements into consideration.
Nearby activities include horseback riding, hiking, birding, jungle cruises, deep sea fishing, whale watching (in season) and visits to a nearby crocodile refuge. In season, guests can help release baby turtles to the wild at the nearby turtle sanctuary.
Casa Don Juan is a home away from home and a world away from the touristy hotels and resorts. The locals of the small nearby fishing villages still honour and celebrate the customs of ‘old’ Mexico.
Casa Don Juan’s secluded, natural environment creates a magical setting for a restful getaway, family gathering, surf vacation or romantic wedding. Casa Don Juan sleeps 8 and can be coupled with neighbouring villas CASA COLIBRI and CASA LAZULI to accommodate up to 24 guests, depending on availabilty.
