ENCHANTING TROPICAL BEACHFRONT GET-AWAYS...AFFORDABLE LUXURY

La Cruz de Huanacaxtle House Rental Photos and Description

1 BR/1BA, ideal for 2, plus outdoor shower & bathroom

Tranquility, serenity, peacefulness to refresh and recharge your spirit-a perfect 'home away from home.' Old world Mexican charm, handcrafted furnishings, thoughtful amenities plus affordable luxury create charming, tropical beachfront get-aways. Enjoy the romance of the tropics & enchantment of the sea while experiencing a simpler life in a quaint fishing village, away from gated communities & the hustle-bustle of Vallarta. Indulge yourself in simply 'being' & let the sights & sounds of Mexico touch your heart - awesome views, unbelievable sunrises, lights twinkling like gems. Whether you're up for lazy days or 'not-so-lazy days', the choice is yours with easy access to an endless list of activities. Two meticulously designed guest houses with a causal elegance, combined with a rustic flair, offering all the conveniences of home. A perfect get-away for two or, reserve both guesthouses for friends or family traveling together.

Old World Charm : Colorful, hand painted Talavera tiles & accessories, pebbles & shells as design elements, acid etched concrete, bamboo handcrafted doors, original artwork, handcrafted furnishings, thatched roof terrazas-all create an environment of casual elegance with a delightful rustic flair. Open-air living where the natural beauty of the outside touches your inside living space with endless views of the bay, the majestic Sierra Madre mountains, beach and gardens. Stroll thru the village to experience the open-air market, select the fresh catch of the day, pick up fresh tortillas or fresh squeezed juices. Head out to dinner at one of the open-air restaurants amidst lovely courtyards, catch some live music & then head back for lingering conversations over candlelight as the gentle sounds of lapping waves lull you off to dreamland.

Living the Simple Life: Whether you're up for lazy days or 'not so lazy' days, the choice is yours. Head to the beach for a delightfully tranquil environment with little to no traffic. Simply said, it is a natural, undeveloped beach with a touch of the wild thrown in - a perfect place to feel totally by oneself. Or stroll down the beach to one of the local palapa restaurants for an ice cold cerverza & “huachinango entero” (grilled whole red snapper) or through the village to get your favorite homemade ice cream. Visit the local Wednesday tiangi’s (markets), pick out your fresh catch of the day at the fish market, enjoy an evening of live music, dine out at one of many local restaurants, visit art galleries featuring Mexican and Huichol Indian art, and join yoga or Spanish classes. Or choose the favorite sport of simply “doing nothing” with the exception of curling up in a cool cozy spot with your favorite libation to soak up the beauty around you.

Affordable Luxury : Treat yourself to heavenly pampering in the comfort of your vacation home! Manicures, pedicures and facials or 1.5 hours of massage while listening to the ocean waves in the background. And, consider a evening meal prepared by a local Mexican woman admist tikki torches in the gardens overlooking the pool and ocean. Also, freshly prepared guacamole, salsa or ceviche available upon request as daily snacks. Daily maid service included.

BETTER THAN ANY 5 STAR HOTEL!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I traveled with another couple and spent one fantastic week at Casa Baku. The internet listing is quite accurate....as a matter of fact, we were pleasantly surprised that this vacation home surpassed every expectation we had! From the beautiful landscaping, to the wonderful and comfortable furnishings, to the location and view and all the extra touches (i.e. kitchen appliances, bottled water, soft and luxurious bathroom towels, well-maintained pool, daily maid service, etc.), carefully and lovingly provided by the warm and welcoming owners!! The property was gated and locked, which provided alot of privacy and, from the minute we arrived to the minute we left we felt safe and completely relaxed under the warm sun and gentle Mexican breezes coming off Banderas Bay. We enjoyed wonderful, quality restaurants, five of which are within easy walking distance of Casa Baku. Paying a small fee for a "meet and greet" service providing transportation to and from the airport, made our vacation begin the moment we stepped off the plane! My husband and I have been traveling for the last 10 years and thoroughly enjoyed our time at Casa Baku. We are planning a return to this hidden treasure as soon as we can arrange it, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who values quality, privacy and casual elegance!

RETURN TO BAKU

  • 5 of 5
Returning to Simply Baku for the second time but this time for 28 days began with Marianne, the owner, picking us up at the airport. Marianne is the type of host who is like a friend, very helpful in arranging things but also very respectful of your privacy. The casita is thoroughly cleaned every day, not just a once over either but shelves, floor, and lourvres are washed and dusted. I especially appreciated the fresh flowers put in the kitchen and bathroom. It was wonderful to again watch the waves and whales, swim in the pool and really relax....for that is what Simply Baku is all about.

VACATION AT SIMPLY BAKU

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I arrived at Simply Baku for the start of our Mexican Vacation.
We were greeted by Marianne and offered complimentary Guacamole dip and
chips and cold Coronas in our room. We stayed on the second floor in the main house of Simply Baku. The room was spacious, very comfortable, clean and all
decorated in beautiful Mexican décor. The balcony looked over the gardens and
you could see the beautiful view of the ocean in front of us. Where to begin to explain how lovely this all was and how wonderful Marianne and her team made
us feel. We are so very happy we found Simply Baku in the very quaint village of La Cruz and look forward to many years of staying at this wonderful home away from home. We highly recommend Simply Baku to anyone looking for excellence in a quality and safe setting in La Cruz Mexico

ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE…

  • 5 of 5
That’s what we find ourselves saying each morning when we wake up at Simply Baku. It’s an oasis that we go back to year after year. Leaving the cold of MN for the warmth of Mexico and total relaxation is our goal and it’s easy to get there. Starting with watching the sunrise with a cup of coffee on our veranda, fishing from shore, watching whales play in the bay as we sit in the sun or the shade of a palapa. We love that we are in an authentic Mexican village. We don’t speak Spanish, but everyone is so helpful that we’ve never found language to be a barrier. We have little tiendas for groceries, great fresh fish salad from Columba to take home or the incredibly varied restaurants to eat at each night. We love Enriques, Street Tacos, wonderful local fare across from the church, the best ice cream ever right on the square and both restaurants right on the beach.

The pictures are accurate, but can't convey the true beauty of this incredible place! The owner will do what ever possible to make your stay exactly what you are looking for.

GETAWAY WITH A GROUP OF FRIENDS

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week with six couples in November, at Baku, and it is the best vacation we have had in years. The atmosphere, the culture, the relaxation, and the attention to detail makes Baku so unique whether for a group or a couple. You can walk everywhere, the town of La Cruz has wonderful restaurants and live music, lovely beaches, and beautiful sunrises. Simply Baku is peaceful, and relaxing, a step above any other resort in the area. The owners of Baku make you feel at home and like family. A wonderful treat, to spend quality time with friends, or a romantic getaway with your sweetheart.

What a wonderful place! Mike and Marianne's little piece of paradise. Your own private getaway surrounded by sand, ocean, gardens and birds. Whale watching and sailing with captain Mike was one of the highlights! Thanks Marianne! Thank you Marianne and Mike for sharing Simply Baku with us. We will be back and have recommended it to everyone!
