Private Coastal Residential Property Debuts on Mexico's Pacific Coast

By Neharika Padala

Las Rosadas, Costa Chamela Corp.’s highly anticipated private coastal community on Mexico’s strikingly beautiful Chamela Bay, is pleased to unveil its first product offerings – two expansive lots and an existing home, Paloma Blanca – both of which will be available for sale in November 2014.  The 420-acre development is situated along 1.25 miles of pristine beachfront coastline, and provides an unprecedented opportunity for home buyers to become part of an exclusive community unlike anything ever seen on the Costalegre.

With an environmentally sustainable infrastructure already in place, Las Rosadas presents breathtaking Pacific Ocean vistas and an authentic, unspoiled destination marked by three sandy, swimmable beaches: Playa Rosadas, Playa Corazon and Playa Turquesa.  Environmental stewardship is a key component of the community and drives the development of Las Rosadas.  More than two-thirds of the property will be left untouched and open as a protected natural preserve and green space.

Las Rosadas reflects the vision of its owners, San Franciscans Tom and Kiki Miller, who reside at the property part-time with their family and are committed to delivering a luxury community with an unwavering commitment to the environment.  Tom Miller, CEO of Costa Chamela Corp. and CEO and founder of The Miller Law Firm, has been a distinguished construction litigation attorney for 40 years.  In 2005, when the site was awarded to the family by the Mexican government, Miller began applying his expertise to designing, planning and creating Las Rosadas.  Five years later, the family received environmental approval for the first new project in Chamela Bay in decades.

“We are very pleased to introduce Las Rosadas and launch sales for this extraordinary, one-of-a-kind property,” said Miller.  “Anyone who has ever visited Los Rosadas has been awed by its beauty – it is truly a special place and the sense of magic and discovery upon arrival is both immediate and everlasting.  Nothing like it exists in the vicinity, so home seekers are provided with an unparalleled opportunity to become early adaptors of an exciting destination as well as active participants in the evolution of a new community.”

The Las Rosadas site neighbors the 30,000-acre Chamela-Cuixmala Biosphere Reserve and is framed by the Chamela Bay Island Sanctuary.  The area is one of the most bio-diverse and environmentally sensitive areas in North America and is home to hundreds of species of flora and fauna on land and in the sea.  Las Rosadas also has a recognized sea turtle sanctuary for eggs and hatchlings, maintains a nursery to raise local plants and trees for landscaping and reforesting programs, upholds wildlife corridors for indigenous and migrating species, and has set aside a protected space for the threatened iguanas that inhabit Western Mexico.  Over the past decade, the Millers have created a strong and diverse team of expert consultants, ranging from marine biologists and land planners to landscape architects, environmental specialists and civil engineers, to ensure that Las Rosadas exceeds all standards and expectations.

Residents of Las Rosadas will have access to a broad range of exceptional amenities and experiences, led by General Manager Efren Campos and his wife, Maria Campos.  Efren Campos has compiled more than 35 years of experience managing notable resorts on Mexico’s Pacific coast, including his 27-year tenure running the famed 25,000-acre Cuixmala private estate and resort, as well as its sister property Hacienda de San Antonio.  Efren and Maria will provide residents with an exceptional level of concierge-style services including transportation, housekeeping, maintenance, shopping and dining.

Activities such as kayaking, snorkeling, surfing, scuba diving, paddle boarding, birding, and biking – the property’s private coastline trails have been designed by renowned mountain bike racer Dave Wiens – offer Las Rosadas residents an array of outdoor experiences.  Situated under a circular palapa on the beach, the cono and an adjacent bar and grill palapas will become a special meeting place for residents to enjoy exquisite food, drink, and special moments with family and friends.  The Tequila Cave, a natural rock formation, provides a stunning “toes in the sand” experience and an ideal setting to sip tequila while the sun sets over Chamela Bay.

In November 2014, Las Rosadas will debut its first product offerings.  The initial category includes two bluff-top lots ranging in size from two to three acres, priced from $4.75 million to $7.95 million.  The home sites, featuring dramatic vistas of the ocean and eight protected Chamela Bay islands, offer buyers an ideal setting on which to build their distinctive retreats.  The second category is the Millers’ existing home, Paloma Blanca, the first completed residence to date, a 12,271-square-foot villa featuring six bedrooms and eight bathrooms.  The striking estate seamlessly blends indoor living with outdoor space, featuring authentic architecture by Juan Diego Perez-Vargas of GDS-Land, elegant design by Katherine Nidermaier of Punta de Mita, a saltwater infinity pool, Pacific Ocean views, easy access to the beach, and an impressive art collection of works by Sergio Hernandez, Fernando Botero, Tiburcio Soteno, Gloria Elies and Vladimir Cora, among many others.  Paloma Blanca will be listed for sale at $10.75 million.

Las Rosadas is located on a private, idyllic stretch of Chamela Bay between Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo, approximately a 2.5-hour and 1.5-hour drive, respectively, from those airports.  Prospective buyers seeking additional information can email
