La Cruz has been our second home for many years and we love spending weekends here when we do not have guests. We spend hours in the pool or the stone waterfall at night looking at the stars, or just take a steamy hot jacuzzi after a whole day at the beach.
We love animals and adore all of our cats. This is a pet friendly home if you want to bring your little companions.
Rick purchased this house in 2006
La Cruz is still considered a small Mexican village and it oozes charm and culture. Casa La Kasbah is situated just one block to the marina and its boardwalk, 3 minutes walk to the beach and yacht club, a 15 minute drive to Sayulita and Punta Mita, 25 minutes to the Vallarta airport and a 30-minute drive to downtown Puerto Vallarta.
The location is ideal, this quaint fishing village is tranquil yet interesting and strolling the cobblestone streets, buying fresh seafood from the fishermen as well as local produce will give you a taste of life in the slow lane.
We had a great time ! The house and the location have been fantastic. Thank you for being so accomodating and helpful everytime we needed something. that made a big difference in our trip. We loved everything, and especially the swimming pool, the waterfall and the jacuzzi. We spent most of our days basking in the sun and walking along the marina. Great location as well, and thanks for recommending all the restaurants. see you next year !!
The pool was great--deep so was nice and cool. Gardens very pretty. House was ok. No air except in one bedroom and it was hot and humid. Kitchen was a disaster--the refrigerator froze the eggs in the bottom part and it took 2 days to make ice in the freezer. We had to throw away fish we had bought. Could only get one burner to work on stove. Sink stopped up and had to get the gardener to fix it. Couldn't get tv to work. Have rented in Bucerias and La Puntilla and this house was a disappointment. But this was the best pool we have ever had.
We were delighted to see the house upon arrival...exactly what we were hoping for and lots of privacy too. Having the well equipped kitchen was great as I love to cook. we had a great time around the pool everyday and the best beach we have been to in years is just ten minutes away.
Regis and Nicole were very welcoming and made our stay very comfortable. Rosa their housekeeper is really nice and very friendly. she did such a good job at keeping the house looking good.
this is a perfect house for one or two couples or a family with kids ..the yard is big and lush green. the walls make it very private and secure. it was a great ten days by the coast.
To anyone looking for a palatial "casa"away from the hustle-and-bustle of Puerto Vallarta -- this is THE place! The owners, Regis & Nicole, could not have been more hospitable! The Casa is wonderful -- I can't say enough. I'm a world traveler and this is the first time I've used VRBO but will certainly use it again and again! Everything mentioned in the rental description is accurate and it's clean and spacious! The pool is marvelous as is the huge lawn and nice lawn and pool chairs. The casa is one short block from anywhere in the little village and I easily found small markets for pop and milk and basics -- but don't count on doing shopping for groceries. There was a local butcher shop and had I been in the market I would have purchased. Many little beauty shops where I enjoyed luxurious pedicures that you just don't get in the states! A man came around selling fresh bread and we all bought a loaf and sat there and munched! The local bus line is easy to navigate and cheap! I paid $70 for a one-way taxi to this destination. Had I walked over the airport skybridge and taken a bus it would have been $2.00 -- yes that's two dollars! But luggage, etc. would have been a big consideration of course. But I did take the bus into PVR three times and it was fun.
I also took the bus out to Punta Mita which is the location of the Four Seasons and two lovely golf courses. Had a wonderful day on the beach. This is also a surfing beach but as it was the low season there were no surfers and no waves for that matter!
There is a local beach within a 5 minute bus ride or about a 15 minute walk, that is a great place to spend the day. Half the fun is batering with the vendors for your "trinkets" and drinking cold beer, placed in a bucket of ice, while the ocean laps at your feet!
So leave the city behind and go to La Cruz and make this Casa your home for your next vacation. I promise you that you won't be disappointed!
Nos gusto muchisimo la casa y La Cruz. La Marina y las playas son preciosas. Pudimos cocinar y entretener a toda la familia, los niños. El jardín esta muy grande y muy agradable para nuestros 2 perros! Regresaremos pronto, felicidades.
Excellent stay, we had a great time. The pool, the waterfall, the spacious garden and the jacuzzi were the best highlights of our trip. We didnt need anything else !

Me and my fiancee had an extremely pleasant stay at La Kasbah and I wouldn't doubt twice in recommending it.
The house was not only even better than in the pics showcased, but the follow up from the owners from start to finish was beyond what we would expect and we certainly enjoyed that our two dogs were more than welcome in the house!.
I feel that the pics do not really show how big the pool is, nor the garden... but once we were there it seemed a lot bigger, also, the jacuzzi was a delight and the main bedroom was just what we needed.
But one of the very first things I loved about the place was that it was ready to be enjoyed, no quick trips to the shop to buy anything nor time spent setting up - everything was already set and in place - (even the towels by the pool, nice touch!).
Definitely a property to come back to, already bookmarked for my next trip and the owner's email stored as a contact.
