We like our Happy Owners to speak for themselves. Here is what our owners have to say about their purchase experience while becoming an owner along the Oaxaca coast…
Without hesitation, we recommend Brent May and OwnMexico.org in helping anyone wanting to make their dream vacation home a reality. We found Brent always to be very professional to deal with. His assistance was always forthcoming in a timely and accurate fashion without the pressure. Even after the purchase was completed, Brent went beyond his required duty in making sure we, his clients, felt comfortable through the entire buying process.
Our first visit to the Huatulco region was in December of 2013. We found some information on Viewpoint and connected with Brent. He and his wife, Erin, picked us up and we had a coffee meeting to discuss the property. He then drove us out for a tour. We fell in love with the stunning views and beautiful complex. In February of 2014 we returned for a “stay and play” at Viewpoint. Brent made sure that we were able to rent a unit similar to the one we were interested in. Brent helped us close a deal on our favorite unit. The purchase went smoothly with no unexpected twists, turns or costs. The buying process was a pleasure and everything went according to plan. We’re now looking forward to spending time at this oceanfront paradise!
We had the opportunity to meet and work with Brent May of Bayside Real Estate. We had been researching properties in and around the area for quite some time while at home in Canada however had not been able to narrow down our list of potential properties. This was mainly due to nervousness of buying in a foreign location. Brent listened to what we wanted and answered our questions in a straightforward manner. He is such an easygoing person with no pressure at all he showed us our options and let us decide. Then he worked hard for us as a negotiator. We are truly happy with our purchase and could not be happier with our dealings with Brent. I would refer him to anyone interested in “Owning Mexico”. He is the best man for the job in our eyes! Thanks again to Brent, it was a pleasure meeting you and your lovely wife. We look forward to getting to know you better as friends.
Darlene and I recently had the pleasure of working with Brent May to find our perfect property in Huatulco. We purchased a beautiful condo at Cosmo Residences in Huatulco. Brent acted as our representative on the purchase of the property and also assisted in the planning for furniture. I cannot recommend Brent highly enough. He takes the time to ensure that you know exactly what you want and then finds the perfect property. Brent is also very honourable, personable and well-liked by all. We now count him as a friend.
My wife and I had been researching properties on the Oaxaca coast for about a year when our search brought us to Viewpoint at Puerto Angel. We came to Viewpoint to look at properties in the area around Puerto Angel. We were already well acquainted with the fabulous people and places between Puerto Escondido and Huatulco. We were undecided about purchasing a house or a condo but after staying at Viewpoint and meeting Brent and Erin and some of the other owners we knew we had found our paradise. From the time we booked our stay at Viewpoint to our reluctant drive back to the airport, Brent and Erin made us feel welcome and looked after every minute detail. We were so impressed with our stay at Viewpoint we decided to return a month later to purchase. We purchased a beautiful and spacious 2 bedroom 2 bath unit with refreshing breezes and amazing sunset views. Brent was very helpful and guided us throughout the process. Although the long trek to being able to purchase foreign property, getting visas and shipping our furniture to Mexico were some of the hardest things we have ever had to do, the a purchase at Viewpoint was very easy and quite painless thanks to Brent and his team.
We had been searching for a vacation home to purchase for a couple of years. We wanted a spot in a rural area with limited tourism, friendly people and affordable. We have found this and more at Viewpoint. We spent a week in early December on a ‘Stay & Play’. During this week my husband went fishing, we did a snorkeling tour at a beautiful cove, while on route we followed a mother whale and her calf, watched a couple of dolphins play and saw local birds and took a short 10 minute drive to a local beach and played in some of the best waves ever. We snorkeled the local cove and reef and took pictures of local sea life. The local people were friendly and made every attempt to help us in any way possible. At no time did we not feel safe. We would like to thank Brent and Erin for being fantastic hosts and to the rest of the owners for “Welcoming” us and inviting us into their homes as friends.
What we like most about my unit at Viewpoint is the spellbinding view of the Pacific Ocean and the activity of local fishermen on the water as they cast their nets and bring home their catch of the day. But most of all, we are awestruck by the regularity of whale sightings right off the point by the pool and our growing collection of photographs. Our Viewpoint unit is tastefully decorated with comfortable furnishings, and the craftsmanship of the interior is exceptional. The layout is perfect for our needs and easy to maintain. It’s nice to be able to unlock the door, unpack our suitcases and just relax. We love the Viewpoint Development in regards to the social aspect with fellow condo owners from all across Canada. It’s nice to see the same people each time we visit and build budding friendships. Coming to Mexico and staying at Viewpoint is a new way of living for us. It’s not just a vacation spot. The staff at Viewpoint is extremely helpful and friendly. We love the wildlife and picturesque lagoons, beaches, towns, and villages. The atmosphere is laid back and the Mexican people are friendly and accommodating. Puerto Angel is a working fishing village, and we would much rather soak up the local scene as opposed to visiting a high traffic tourist spot with crowded beaches.
My husband and I decided that we wanted to own our own vacation property in Mexico and began doing research in 2010. We explored a couple of places on-line. Some places would not even respond to our inquiries. However, Viewpoint was very responsive and we decided to spend our 2011 holidays there. Are we ever glad that we did! The pictures on the website are fantastic but do not even come close to seeing it in person. The other owners were very friendly and were willing to answer all of our questions. During our stay, we explored the many beautiful beaches in the area, and enjoyed the five star dining in the evening. We did a tour of the mangroves, the Turtle Museum, and a fantastic three bay boat tour with a stop at a beautiful secluded beachside restaurant for lunch, to name a few. However, my favorite was the informal “happy hours” at the pool side with the other owners after the day’s activities and before supper. We were undecided whether or not to buy a condo when we left, but when we got home and realized how much we missed the views, the whale and dolphin watching and the relaxed atmosphere that comes with staying in a small fishing village, as opposed to being in a large tourist area, we decided to purchase our own slice of paradise.
What we love most about our Viewpoint Condo is the amazing view from our suite and the pool, with whales, dolphins and manta rays making regular appearances. We appreciate the quiet laid-back ambiance of the Puerto Angel area and getting to know the local people, who have been nothing short of friendly and accommodating. It truly is an authentic Mexican experience which has enriched our family’s lives. The property’s location is ideal; private and secluded, yet only a short walk from the amenities of town, and only a short drive from a wide array of tourist sites. We discover unique restaurants, shops and places every time we visit. We love to share our condo with extended family and we have all fallen in love with the place!
No question, what I like most about my unit was the view. I was so impressed that I bought 2 units! The floor to ceiling windows brings the ocean right into your living room…it’s kind of like front row seats at the Imax! We spend countless hours on our balcony reading and occasionally catch a glimpse of a whale swimming by or a giant manta ray feeding along the shoreline. The units are bright and spacious and nicely appointed with tile and granite. Being in this development is very akin to being on the prow of a ship with the senses overwhelmed by the panoramic (>180 degrees) view and the ever present crashing of the waves below. The development team has been very responsive to suggestions and ideas presented by the owners resulting in the provision of a lovely pool, covered lounge area and BBQ, not to mention the security, laundry facilities and support by the staff and on-site team. What I like about the area are the unspoiled beaches, myriad quaint restaurants and most of all the pace of life. This is the laid-back non-commercialized Mexico I remember and what I left the craziness of the Mexican Riviera around Cancun for! Futhermore, I feel safe here and have no concerns about walking through Puerto Angel at any time of the day.
Together with my husband we traveled to Huatulco the end of March 2012 and were met at the airport by Brent and his amazing wife Erin – both were very hospitable and ensured we had everything we needed before delivering us to the most spectacular location we have ever seen – Viewpoint! We have travelled both coastlines and Puerto Angel and Viewpoint are absolutely breathtaking and it was love at first sight. A huge ‘thank-you’ to the sales team for providing a service bar none to any other. Needless to say we purchased what we believe to be the most spectacular condo in the entire area.
What we love best about Viewpoint is the peace and quiet; The kind of peace you just cannot find anywhere else. We love the views and the quiet, warm nights sitting on the balcony watching the fisherman and the stars…stars not seen in Canada. The food…in a word: exceptional. Every trip reveals a new surprise. Little hideaways worth exploring are everywhere. We are humbled to meet and become friends with the humblest, hardest working and inspiring individuals we have ever met. What don’t we like about Viewpoint…having to go back to the airport to return home. We will retire to Viewpoint.
We love our villa at Viewpoint!! Beautiful views, tranquility, and a laid back lifestyle with amazing weather year around had to meet our requirements as we searched for our “piece of paradise”. We found it at Viewpoint. Easy access to awesome beaches, great food, and lots of entertainment, there is plenty to do…..or do nothing at all. Ahhhh…it’s almost time for a margarita!!!
There is really only one word that describes the view from our condo at Viewpoint – Amazing. We purchased our condo in 2010 and have never regretted it. Our 12 year old son loves swimming in the ocean at the local beach and the pool is a nice place to relax if you want to stay around the condo for the day. Weather is never an issue. It is always beautiful. The staff is amazing and they treat us like family. If you need anything they go beyond what is necessary to help. There are times when it is just my son and I that go down to the condo if my husband can’t get away. I feel completely safe travelling around the area. We walk to the beach everyday and grab a cab if we are travelling to another little town. The people at the restaurants are friendly and the local beach is a great place for kids and adults to swim. We love it and can’t wait to get back down this winter.
My wife and I purchased in Playa Del Carmen Mexico in 2001 when it was just a sleepy village. However, over the years the small sleepy village grew from 5000 people to now over 300 000. We found it was becoming to commercialized and that small home town feeling was now long gone. We decided to look around in other areas and stumbled upon the Huatulco coast line in Mexico. We booked a trip and when landing looked out the window to the breathtaking bays all along the coast line. We decided to rent a car and explore the coast line. The one place we fell in love with was the small fishing village of Puerto Angel. On the plane ride back to Canada we had decided to sell our unit in Playa Del Carmen and look for a place in Puerto Angel. We stayed in a few places near Puerto Angel to get the lay of the land and started looking for our new vacation home. One of the locals we met along the beach told us of a new luxury condo complex that was being built on a cliff overlooking the town. We jumped in a taxi and told the driver to take us to the condo complex under construction overlooking the town, he said “se senior” that is called Viewpoint. He said it with such enthusiasm and began to tell me how all the locals were proud of this building. It was bringing work to the local economy for them. It was like a picture perfect post card, 300 degree ocean views and you could hear the waves crashing along the coast line. The finishing in the show suite was so high end, it made my house back in Canada seem almost poorly done. We were blown away by the reasonable price and low condo fees. They were both almost 1/2 of what we had paid in Playa Del Carmen. We have met so many great people from the complex and the representative for the developers live right above us, Brent and his wife Erin are a hoot, great fun. We liked the complex so much we even talked ours friends into buying units at Viewpoint right across the hall from each other. Cervezas for everyone, see you by the pool!
