July 8, 2021 – Elite Alliance, the leader in luxury fractional real estate consulting and sales, vacation home exchange, resort hospitality management, and vacation rental, has partnered with Grupo Espiritu, a highly respected Mexican development company, to create the world’s first wellness-centric residence club.
The Residence Club at Rancho La Puerta, located in Tecate, Baja California, Mexico, is serenely sited around a vineyard and adjacent to internationally renowned Rancho La Puerta. Founded in 1940, Rancho La Puerta is the world’s first destination wellness and spa resort.
“Our elegant new residence club is founded on wellness and personal healing,” said Rob Goodyear, President of Elite Alliance. “Club owners have access to a host of amenities, services and Ranch privileges. They can host family members and friends, rent their residence to guests through our rental program, and explore more than 120 other prestigious destinations through our Elite Alliance Exchange program.”
The Residence Club at Rancho La Puerta offers a 1/8th ownership in three residence categories. The Club homes are located in The Residences community, and thoughtfully placed on The Ranch’s 4,000-acre grounds. Residence Club homes will be fully furnished and elegantly appointed by Elite Alliance Hospitality. Homeowners that participate in the Elite Alliance rental program receive rental marketing, housekeeping, and concierge services, as well as screening and monitoring of rental guests for security and peace of mind. Like Residence Club owners, other homeowners at The Residences who participate in the Elite Alliance rental program are awarded a two-year complimentary Premium Membership into Elite Alliance Exchange.
The Residences were designed and developed by Grupo Espiritu to integrate the highest levels of quality, experiences, and value. Residence Club ownership is priced from $179,000 to $439,000. The Casitas are 2,003 square feet and feature two bedrooms with two and a half baths, and a private plunge pool. The Casas are 3,100 square feet and feature three bedrooms with three and a half baths, and a private plunge pool. The gracious Villas are 5,180 square feet and boast four bedrooms with four and a half baths, along with a private swimming pool. All residences have spacious, tranquil outdoor living areas. Expect a peaceful, wellness-focused enclave with incredible features and amenities.
"We are thrilled that our partnership with Elite Alliance allows Rancho La Puerta devotees to become Residence Club owners,” said Roberto Arjona, CEO of Rancho La Puerta. "We feel this new, flexible, co-ownership allows many of our guests who want to be a part of our new Residences community the opportunity for real estate ownership that matches their needs."
