[quote]The pool area at the condo was quiet and somewhat secluded. There is a nice little BBQ area poolside which was perfect for cooking the occasional supper or lunch. Almost every day, cruising by off the front of the point, we saw whales or dolphins. We met some of the full time residents of the condo. Full time as in they spend most of their winters there as they were all Canadian. They were all very friendly and shared advice and tips on where to shop for food, places to go and the best places to eat in the area. Puerto Angel and the surrounding area is very different from the resort type of vacationing we have experienced. It felt as though we were more immersed in the culture. We had a great opportunity to be shown the nearby beaches; our favorites were San Augustanillo and Playa Panteon. [/quote] –… Read More “Chris & Ashala – Saskatoon, SK”
[quote]Having always stayed at All-Inclusive resorts, we weren't sure what to expect from our stay at Viewpoint at Puerto Angel. We were amazed by the great location and views from the condo and our unit. We've never felt so safe and secure at the condo and had such a relaxing time. Brent and Erin were such great hosts, showing us around the area, checking out the different beaches, tours and amenities the area had to offer. It was such a great experience and we cannot wait to go back. Thank you so much for the great time![/quote] – Stayed February 2012, traveled as a family – [hr]
[quote]I had the opportunity to stay for a short period of time at ViewPoint while checking out real estate in the general area. ViewPoint is the best place to stay in Puerto Angel, the condos are spacious, clean, and modern. However, be forewarned, you will find yourself zoning out for hours as you take in the captivating awesome views seen from ViewPoint. Puerto Angel is a small, quaint Mexican fishing village about half way between Puerto Escondido and Huatulco. The perfect destination for those who wish to spend their time enjoying; the quiet beauty of the local playas, the entertaining conversations with other travelers you are sure to meet, and the hospitality of the local residents. Brent and Erin were excellent hosts and provided me with great information on the development and area. I look forward to a return visit on my next trip to this coastal area of Mexico.… Read More “Scott C – Point Roberts, Washington”
[quote]We visited Viewpoint March 2013 and stayed in a beautiful 3-bedroom with my family. The place was gorgeous, neat and very clean, and over looked a cove. Best thing to wake up to in the morning, sunshine and waves crashing! Erin was very welcoming and even had a few necessities ready for us, Brent was awesome in that he showed us all around the area. They both were extremely welcoming and introduced us to some of the other owners who were all really friendly! The condo is perfectly located to be in a quiet place away from the town, but also close enough that you could walk/taxi in to get things you needed. Zipolite is a 50 peso cab ride away and was amazing for food and the atmosphere, definitely a great place to visit while at the Viewpoint. Overall it was a blast and I miss Erin and Brent… Read More “Angus, Sophie, Michelle & Philip – Toronto, AB”
[quote]We visited the ViewPoint in early January 2013. The 2 bed condo was beautiful and clean. Erin's Youtube video of the road in was really helpful as we arrived at night. The staff and owners Cathy and Rob were welcoming and full of information. We travelled with our two teenaged girls and the visits to beaches and the Turtle Museum were highlights. The pool and the vistas were fantastic. Brent organized a movie over the Pacific Ocean one night which was so special. The kitchen was fully equipped at the condo but we ate out usually twice a day. Driving was “interesting” but not hard. We would love to visit again. [/quote] – Stayed in January 2013, traveled as a family- [hr]
[quote]Our Stay & Play experience was what sold us. We were met at the airport by Brent who make us feel so welcome right away. On arrival at ViewPoint we met his beautiful wife Erin and together they wasted no time in making us so comfortable and immediately showed us the unit we were interested in. They began showing us one of the fun spots that very first evening, by taking us out for dinner. Easy to relax and enjoy yourself around them. They showed us some of Puerto Escondido, helped us rent a car, and took us out a couple more times to some of their favorite haunts, but at the same time left us to explore on our own. Brent was available to answer any and all questions as well as show us all available units. The Stay & Play was terrific in that we got to live… Read More “Mike & Joanne – Blackie, AB”
[quote]When we visited Viewpoint and saw what they have – by comparison -we fell in love – not only with the development but with Brent and his oh so charming wife, Erin (and of course he is as well!!). Apart from the most idyllic setting and a well constructed and beautiful building, this very nice and accommodating couple really did help us in making our final decision to purchase and we did that in 24 hours!!

[quote]Dear Prospective Buyer: We do not have to spend much time in convincing anyone on the beauty that describes Bahías de Huatulco with its picturesque bays, scenic beaches, and the charming towns. But the prospect of making your dream of owning a Huatulco property a reality can be a daunting and mysterious task. Having a trusted guide to help you navigate through the process is critical. We can say without reservation that Brent May (and Erin!) of Own Mexico is that master guide with a strong understanding of the area and an innate ability to recognize the needs and desires of a client. Brent’s honest and non-intrusive approach allowed us to discover and develop our goals in making an informed and contented decision in purchasing our property. A testament to his energy and approach to doing business is seen in the amazing relationships he carries with the local builders and real estate… Read More “Rollie & Bonnie T – Calgary, AB”
[quote]We have recently had the opportunity to take advantage of Own Mexico’s stay and play. We enjoyed our time immensely from the beginning with a personal airport pickup to our personalized itinerary. Brent and his wife Erin showed us a side of Mexico that one could only see from a person who has had the experience of living in Mexico. Brent was readily available the entire week during our stay to answer questions and to show us different property options within our price range. At no time did we feel pressured into making a decision. Our stay and play comprised of staying in two very different locations. Firstly , Mansiones Cruz del Mar in Santa Cruz, Huatulco. We were the first couple to experience the stay and play at this location and our unit was being finished just days/hours prior to our arrival. Brent went above and beyond to make sure all… Read More “Brenda & Joe – Winnipeg, MB”
[quote]Cyndie and I wanted to thank you both for a great experience while visiting Huatulco during our vacation. Brent, to have you meet us at the airport for a personalized pick up and a guided tour as we drove to the condo we could not have asked for anything more. The condo at the Mansiones Cruz Del Mar is beautiful and met our expectations completely. The location between Santa Cruz and La Crucecita was perfect, just a comfortable walk into each town depending on what you wanted to see and do for the evening. Erin was so accommodating the next morning by meeting and showing us all the features the condo complex has to offer including the outdoor patio, gym and restaurant right at the condo (no cooking required if you wished). Erin even took us to the bank to exchange Canadian dollars for Peso's before heading to the grocery… Read More “Dean & Cyndie P – Calgary, AB”
[quote]Thank you for an incredible week in Huatulco! We stayed at the Mansiones for our Stay & Play, and it was a great place to relax and enjoy the sunshine- the staff was friendly and the meals at Limon Bistro were amazing. We fell in love with Huatulco on our previous trips, but had no idea that there were so many options for property (buying & renting) until coming down for the stay and play. Brent and Erin are amazing people. They work very hard at finding just the right fit for their clients and new friends. The restaurants in the area are a surprise and must be tried! Some of the best foods from around the world can be found- the welcome is genuine and we always had a great time. We were lucky enough to be there for a blues music night, and were amazed at the talent and… Read More “Dennis & Jackie F – Prince Albert, SK”
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… Read More “Brad & Kelley”
We dealt with Brent for the purchase of our condo in Santa Cruz, Huatulco. We communicated for a good 6 months before coming down and he has always replied to our emails and countless questions in a timely manner. For 2 weeks he patiently brought us to visit just about every option available in Huatulco & surroundings. Never have we ever felt pressured or being rushed, and we also appreciated his straight shooting. Brent is very knowledgeable of the market, the areas and the pro & cons. He also goes out of his way to inform people on all kinds of topics with his newsletters & web seminars, which nobody else does. We have met with most realtors in the area, and we strongly recommend Bayside Real Estate!
Brent and company were an amazing asset to the whole process. Being first time buyers of foreign property there was extreme trepidation on our part. His knowledge of the process was very reassuring. His selection of people to complete the entire transaction was excellent. He was always available to answer questions and concerns in a timely manner. If he didn't have an answer for you immediately he knew where to get the answer. Highly recommend Bayside Real Estate Huatulco.
Brent May and his team of professionals are a great way to get involved in your real estate search in and around the Huatulco area. We used Brent over a couple of years until we found our “perfect” winter condo to purchase. His “no pressure” approach is a needed approach for us. His humour and in depth knowledge on the area and market conditions allowed us to feel fully informed. We would recommend Bayside Real Estate Huatulco for your search of any home or condo from Huatulco thru Puerto Escondido and all areas in between.
My wife and i started traveling to Mexico around 11yrs ago to get away from the cold winters and hustle and bustle in Canada. I'm sure it's pretty much the same story for most of you, heading down for some fun in the sun. We travelled to a few areas there and finally purchased in Playa Del Carmen Mexico in 2001. It was a sleepy fishing village with a small home town feel, much like going to our lake in Canada where the people are friendly and you don't have to lock your doors. 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… Read More “Wayde B”
After many years of contemplating purchasing property in Mexico and frequent trips to more northerly destinations we were introduced to the Huatulco area, attended a presentation and headed down to acquaint ourselves with the Huatulco coastline and the Viewpoint property. We knew right away that the constant sunshine, blue waters of the Pacific with its abundant sea life, breezes off the ocean, and comical birds soaring on the air currents would fill our days. Once we rounded the curve of the road up to the property and spied the building surrounded on 3 sides by the ocean we were hooked. We worked with the developer to create our unit to our liking and moved in December 2010. We have spent 2 winter seasons at Viewpoint getting to know the other owners, venturing out to the countless scenic spots along the coast, wandering the little villages, sampling the local cuisine and… Read More “Neil & Joyce G”
There is really only one word that describes the view from our condo at View Point – 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. We have managed to get down there twice a year each year and hope to extend those periods time in the future. 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… Read More “Kris, Joan & Anthony C”
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!!!
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.
Together with my husband we travelled 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.
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. As for the furnishing….let your imagination run free. Our lower unit is particularly attractive because it has 3 bedrooms and 3 baths with a lower separate bedroom and bath (can you say huge!) that could be rented as a separate studio suite. What first sold me about the development were the principals that were building it. I have had a business relationship with the developers for many… Read More “Larry & Kerry C”
We made a wonderful decision in March of this year. When we visited Viewpoint at Puerto Angel and saw what they have, by comparison to other developments, we fell in love. Apart from the most idyllic setting and a well constructed and beautiful building, this very nice and accommodating couple really did help us in making our final decision to purchase and we did that in 24 hours!! The condo is situated on a high bluff overlooking the ocean with lovely bays, the sound of the crashing waves, birds swooping around, early morning fishermen at work and as well, high enough up to capture the gentle off-shore breezes meaning that air-conditioning would rarely need to be used most of the time. While we only stayed 2 nights at Viewpoint, we had the opportunity to visit 2 of the local restaurants in Zipolite, a nearby village. The food, while not Mexican… Read More “David B & Doug B”
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!
We love the view from our suite and the convenience of being able to walk 5 minutes down the hill into Puerto Angel for a beer and a bite on the beach.
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 2 bedroom condo we stayed in was extremely comfortable and well stocked. There wasn’t anything lacking. 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. There was no need to make reservations at the restaurants. We did a tour of the mangroves, the Turtle Museum,… Read More “Wes & Janice S”
What we like most about my unit at Viewpoint at Puerto Angel 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. Their fishing patterns really emerge and it is interesting to watch them. 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. There is no work involved when we get there. We love the Viewpoint Development in regards to the social aspect with fellow condo owners from all across… Read More “Bob & Corinne M”
We had been searching for a vacation home to purchase for a couple of years. Both of us were born and lived in Nova Scotia for 45+ years so we knew the spot would have to be 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 and play”. During this week my husband went fishing with a local fisherman, 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. One evening at dinner, the restaurant where we were eating hosted a traveling circus act with four talented artists. Most afternoons… Read More “Vaughn & Ellen H”
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… Read More “Angus & Sophie C”
Darlene and I recently had the pleasure of being with Brent May, looking for the perfect property in the Huatulco to Puerto Escondido areas. Part of our problem was that had not firmed up exactly what we wanted. Brent put us up in the Viewpoint development at a nominal cost and spent the better part of a week showing us both the real estate and the lifestyle of the areas of Port Angel, Zipolite, and Mazunte. We eventually settled on purchasing a 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom condo at Cosmos Development in El Arrocito 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.… Read More “Tom & Darlene N”
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.
Let me introduce myself. My name is Jed, a middle-aged Englishman who on the very day of penning this, but two years ago, moved into new home in Huatulco. It was something that happened in a flash. One day I was on vacation, kicking up some sand on one of the beaches, not thinking of anything more than an ice-cold margarita. Later that same day, having sat at the same table as someone who told me he had a house to sell, I was being shown around a three-bedroom home, with a garden, a pool, five palm trees, a rooftop terrace and a bar. Life Back Home Now, this was quite different to where I was living at the time, smack bang in the middle of a major city in England, where the people literally lived on top or beneath each other (after all, you can’t have one without the… Read More “Buying Our Home In Mexico – It Happened In A Flash & It Was Easy!”

Check out our newest Owner Testimonial from another happy customer… [quote]My husband and I rented a condo at Viewpoint at Puerto Angel for 1 week this past February 2014. After having enjoyed many wonderful vacations at all-inclusive resorts (mostly on the Mayan Riviera) over the last 10 years, our week at Viewpoint was the most relaxing and enjoyable ever! The oceanfront view from our condo was simply breath-taking! The sound of waves crashing against the rocks below was a most soothing experience and an outstanding way to drift off to sleep each night. The development itself was clean and beautifully designed, and solidly built on a cliff 50+ meters above the Pacific Ocean. Each unit is spacious and accented with marble flooring and granite counters as well as modern stainless steel appliances! The staff on-site are gracious and helpful and work very hard to maintain the complex, grounds, and crystal clear infinity… Read More “Owner Testimonials – Ray & Paula”
