The space

Rancho Nueve is undoubtedly one of the finest vacation rental villa’s on the Punta Mita peninsula. In fact, there are very few villas in the world that compare to this breathtaking beachfront estate. This exquisite eight bedroom, eight-and-a-half bathroom oceanfront villa sleeps up to 16 guests, and offers guests an unrivaled experience in terms of luxury, location, services & amenities. Designed by renowned Mexican architect Aldaco, the 25,000 square foot Palapa-style residence has a commanding presence within the exclusive Ranchos Estates. Perched on an elevated point, the three acre compound boasts the best vantage point within the Ranchos enclave, overlooking the magnificent Bay of Banderas. Private, white sand beaches stretch away in both directions, offering guests a number choices for swimming & surfing. Rancho Nueve is the ultimate retreat for the discerning international traveler. Our goal is to make your stay at Rancho Nueve surpass any other five star travel experience you have ever had.

The Palapas
The villa consists of two palapas – a main palapa & a guest palapa. The main palapa features a large, open living area with several sitting, sun lounge & dining areas. Enjoy uninterrupted 180 degree Pacific Ocean views from the villa’s main palapa, infinity pool & hot tub. Beyond the pool, on a perfectly manicured lawn is a fire pit & romantic bench seat overlooking the surf break below. Recline on a sun bed & let our villa staff prepare you a fresh margarita as you watch your kids play in the pool. Depending on the weather, choose from the indoor or outdoor dining areas. Enjoy your freshly prepared meal by our international chefs, trained in Mexican & European culinary styles. In addition to a grill, the villa also features a pizza oven which is a fun, delicious option for family dining.

The main palapa also features four guest suites – each with its own theme. A local artist carefully hand painted the exquisite flower themes on walls in the suites. On the ground floor is a spacious “oleander” king master suite with sweeping ocean views that opens directly on to the garden. Right next door is a smaller “poppies” king guest suite with its own en suite. This bedroom also opens to the garden & ocean. On the top floor the same configuration is repeated with a second “hibiscus” king master suite with a private balcony & a smaller “lilies” king guest suite next door. From the main palapa, guests can access a private rooftop terrace, ideal for those who prefer to sun bathe in seclusion.

Adjoining the main palapa, on the ground floor is a large media room which is perfect for relaxation, book reading & movie watching. There is also a small office space if business calls while you are on vacation. This is a peaceful & private space for anyone seeking a quiet retreat.

Right behind the main palapa is a guest palapa which features an additional four guest suites. One the ground floor are two guest suites, “cherry blossom” & “bougainvilleas” each with two queen beds. These ground floor suites open to the garden. On the upper level of the guest palapa are two king guest suites, “honeysuckle” & “daisies” each with their own private balcony.
