Wonderful stay at Nautilus 1. The views from the property were beautiful. The hosts are very gracious. We all had a lovely time.
Beautiful view and helpful hosts.
Walking distance to Bucerias and a beautiful sunrise and ocean view. House was clean and in great shape. Private pool was cleaned twice during our stay and kitchen had everything we needed. It was a great vacation and lots of good food in bucerias, la cruz and punta Mita.
We definitely plan to return.

What a beautiful condo, in a beautiful setting. Clean and great amenities. We were met by the property manager, John at noon (earlier than check in time of 3pm) which was wonderful as we would have been in limbo for over 3hrs. He was professional and very friendly in getting us situated in the condo. He was also very prompt in having all 3 shower head replaced the next day due to lime deposits that made showering difficult.
The condo is exactly as picture. The kitchen was well stock with everything you would need to cook, lots of dishes, blender, coffee maker, etc. The bedrooms all had nice linens and tons of soft towels for both showering and pool side. Both "masters" had soft pillowtop king sized beds. My husband and I took the 3rd bedroom with 2 full sized beds. These 2 beds are VERY firm and we found them uncomfortable. That was my only complaint about the entire condo. The other 2 couples said that their beds were comfy.
The grounds of the complex are incredibly well maintain but there is no beach to speak of directly in front of the unit. We were told by John that a hurricane had done a lot of damage to the beach last year and they are trying to rebuild the entire complexes beach. There is a small beach area down by the main pool and restaurant that is suitable for sun bathing but not swimmable during the day because of low tide and completely rocky. High tide would make it swimmable but was late in the evening and very early morning, then back to low tide in late morning. The beaches are completely different just a short 15 minute walk away so we didn't mind it that much, but we would have loved to stay on the complex for that too.
We saw a lot of paddle boards and sea kayaks each morning on the cove but did not have access to them as none are available for use or rent because they are individually owned by other condo units. It would be a great perk to have one or the other available to this unit. That being said, with my minor complaints, all 6 of us truly enjoyed our time at Nautilus 1. I would not hesitate to recommend this unit to anyone. IT IS SPLENDID!
Thanks for your thoughtful comments.
Punta Esmeralda is in the process to restore the beach area from the recent storm.
It is a very costly project that needs to be overseen by the Mexican authorities.
We will look into upgrading the 3rd bedroom beds.
Little slice of Mexican heaven
We stayed for the first 9 days of Spring Break and had an absolutely fantastic time. The property was outstanding and the whole process was easy from beginning to end.
The communication with the owner was quick and efficient and the property manager was there to meet us and show us the condo. It is a ground level suite with a plunge pool and only steps away from a large pool and the ocean. We used the deck more than the inside.
The kitchen was well appointed and made cooking for ourselves easy. There were beach towels provided and anything else that would be in your own home.
We loved the art and decor and the beds and linens were very comfortable. We loved it so much we are keen to re book for next Spring Break!
Nice place and the house in good quality.
Place to come back
Glad to have Nautilus1 to your expectation that added to your vacation enjoyment
