The Attraction of Fairway Homes
Published Feb 13, 2006 - (Updated Dec 19, 2012)
Residing on a beautiful golf course and owning prime Costa Vallarta real estate is any golfer’s dream. As the sport fast becomes a favorite pastime for many seniors, snowbirds and year-round residents, this dream is becoming a reality for many.
Even for those who have yet to swing a club, buying a home on a golf course can feel like winning the real estate lotto! Gorgeous views, peace and quiet and well maintained large green expanses are just some of the benefits available to all, besides convenient golfing. A golf course behind your house can seem like an extension of your property – without any of the upkeep obligations!
The courses themselves are usually owned by the developer, with golf memberships available to residents, but not required. In Vallarta, golf communities may also offer such bonuses as attractive clubhouses, stores selling every gold accessory, nearby five-star resorts, full-service spas and gyms, restaurants and tennis. Several provide special beach clubs for owners along the broad, white shoreline. Another advantage to this type of living is that this park-like setting is often part of a gated neighborhood with excellent security.
In addition to membership opportunities in excellent golf facilities, Vallarta itself provides many amenities that enhance the golfer’s lifestyle: fabulous dining, beautiful beaches, and interesting shopping and cultural activities, not to mention wonderful weather.
Residential golf communities in the Bahía de Banderas area already include the many individual homes and condominium projects located on the Marina Vallarta Golf Club and in the planning and construction stages with easy access to it. Further north in Nayarit, much housing development is occurring in Nuevo Vallarta around the Mayan Palace and Paradise Village golf courses and near the town of Bucerias around the Flamingos Golf Club, as well as along the northernmost tip of the Bay, in Punta Mita.
