Occupying 1,500 acres of a peninsula on the Riviera Nayarit, just north of Puerto Vallarta, Punta Mita includes Four Seasons and St. Regis resorts, two Jack Nicklaus–designed golf courses, and a host of remarkable beachfront homes. The private residence Villa La Punta 9, which Robb Report Home & Style featured in the Smart Showings section of its March/April issue, recently came on the market, intriguing potential buyers with its 12,744 square feet of living space in the oceanfront enclave of La Punta Estates. Here, we present three more enticing Punta Mita properties that recently were listed for sale.

Villa Ranchos 8
$5.95 million
A long pool that extends from the main indoor living area to the outside dominates the striking design scheme of this five-bedroom beachfront home. Captivating views of the Bay of Banderas and the Marietas Islands eliminate the need for artwork or other decoration. Moreover, the colorful interiors and the architecture, by Jose de Yturbe, render the 11,000-square-foot home a work of art itself. www.puntademita-realestate.com/villaranchos8

The 10,000-square-foot beachfront home, designed by Craig Aureguy, features large glass walls that help to meld the traditional Mexican interiors with the outdoor areas, such as the covered palapa lounge and infinity pool. www.puntademita-realestate.com/villaranchos14
