Northern California-based land developer Serendipity Land Holdings recently made two of its El Banco Beach Villas on Mexico’s Pacific Coast available for short-term lease. Just north of Puerto Vallarta, El Banco’s Villa Mirador and Villa Los Arcos sit on 110 acres of one of the longest white-sand beaches on the Punta de Mita peninsula. Surrounded by acres of privacy, pristine beaches, and views of the Marietas Islands, the Sierra Madre Mountains, and the Bay of Banderas, the villas also have all the amenities expected of a luxury resort: golf, surfing, in-home massages, spa treatments, and meals prepared by a private chef. Sweeping arches, lush courtyards, private pools, and handcrafted details throughout the villas help cultivate an appreciation for Mexico’s Spanish-colonial heritage, while the merging of indoor and outdoor living spaces fosters a unique connection with Mexico’s natural landscape. Both Villa Mirador and Villa Los Arcos have four spacious bedroom suites, each with its own private terrace, and are priced from $2,000 to $4,000 per night. (877.265.7407, www.elbancomexico.com)
