BEACHFRONT CASA PAMELA WITH PRIVATE POOL AT LA PUNTILLA

La Cruz de Huanacaxtle Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Beachfront with private pool, 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom Casa Pamela is a luxurious vacation home located in the exclusive gated and secure community of La Puntilla, just 5 minutes from Bucerias and 20 minutes north of the Puerto Vallarta airport on Mexico's Pacific coast. This area of the Mexican Riviera is quickly becoming known as 'Riviera Nayarit'. From Casa Pamela you can walk into the nearby fishing village of La Cruz de Huanacaxgtle (La Cruz) in less than 10 minutes. A casual walk on the beach to Bucerias will take just over an hour or you can drive or take the bus into Bucerias in 5 to 8 minutes.

Casa Pamela is the epitome of elegance and comfort and is decorated with whimsical artwork and Mexican Folk Art throughout. Sliding glass doors across the living room, dining area and master bedroom span the entire width of the house and provide a spectacular view over the pool, the gardens and the ocean. In the living room, in addition to comfortable furniture, tucked away in an armoire you will find a new 42 inch flat screen TV with English Language Satellite, DVD player, VCR and video collection, CD player and CD's as well as a collection of books and board games. In the dining area there is a large glass-topped dining table surrounded by four high back wrought iron chairs, accented by a mirrored wall and beautiful artwork.

The king-size master bedroom and en-suite master bath with soaker tub and shower opens onto the poolside patio where you can watch the spectacular sunrises over Banderas Bay from the patio, or right from your bed!

The second and third bedrooms, both have a queen-size bed and a twin bed and look onto the landscaped front garden. There are two full bathrooms with marble showers adjacent to the second and third bedrooms.

The three bedrooms are air conditioned and there are ceiling fans and sparkling white marble floors throughout the house. The fully equipped white tiled kitchen is complete with refrigerator, four burner gas stove with oven, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, toaster and blender. As well, there is a laundry room off the kitchen with full-size washer and dryer.

Bring along your laptop and use the complimentary wireless internet or connect to the high speed modem. We offer FREE PHONE CALLS to the US and Canada -- no computer required.

Step outside to your own private oasis surrounded by shimmering waters and a spectacular oceanfront view. In the morning, relax on the patio with a cup of coffee and watch the sun make its way over the mountains. Spend the day lounging in the beautiful pool or sunbathing on the poolside patio. The beach, relatively private and without vendors, is just steps away across the palm lined common garden. At night, the lights of Bucerias and Puerto Vallarta shimmer in the distance across the Bay of Banderas.

Enjoy a cool, relaxing drink in the shade of the full length overhang where you can read a good book, play games, watch the birds and sea life and the wide expanse of the Bay before you. From Casa Pamela it's an easy and enjoyable stroll into the village of La Cruz de Huanacaxtle for shopping and restaurants or a visit to the shops and restaurants at new Marina La Cruz. There are several fresh fish markets at the marina where you can purchase a variety of fish, shrimp, oysters, etc for very reasonable prices. A Sunday Market offers fresh produce, Mexican treats to nibble on and a hugh selection of good quality Made in Mexico crafts.

A security guard is at the gated entrance 24 hours a day, and a security patrolman is on the beach in the evenings and throughout the night. Our English/Spanish speaking Property Managers will greet you after your arrival to answer any of your questions. A guest handbook in the house details pool, lawn, and housekeeping service, and we provide a list of things to do as well as a list of some of our favourite restaurants and places for evening entertainment.

Casa Pamela is wheelchair accessible and as a non-smoking home, we invite you to smoke outside or on the patio only, please. A well behaved pet may be permitted, with prior approval.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great time at Casa Pamela--very nice accommodation!We took the bus into Puerto Vallarta one day--a nice town but far too touristy for me. We preferred the little village of La Cruz. The market/store near Philo’s (Restaurant and Bar in La Cruz) is the one to go to, it has all the fresh produce and lots of it!It would have been more convenient to have a rental car, but you were right, the roads were very congested during the big Mexican holiday week! I would love to come back one day for the Tequila tour and do some fishing.All the information you provided before our arrival was great. We ate at Hidden Paradise just down the beach, had a great meal at Frascati in La Cruz and spent Thursday evening at Philo's for open mike night!One night Lettie and Jesus cooked dinner for us and another night we bought a delicious barbequed chicken and brought it "home" to Casa Pamela. Wonderful meals the entire time! Thanks again for everything, we hope to return to Casa Pamela soon!.

A marvelous property!

  • 5 of 5
My family and a friend's family spent 10 nights at Casa Pamela over Christmas 2011 and New Year's 2012. I think that the most descriptive comment that I can make comes from our shared comment the first morning of our visit, sharing coffee as we sat looking at the Bay of Banderas from a back yard table: "Wow, I can't BELIEVE it's really this nice." But it was.

Initially concerned about safety, we felt VERY safe, between the laid-back nature of La Cruz, the on-site staff, and we learned that the governor of Nayarit lives within 200 yards of the Casa... With enhanced security there!

The descriptions and photos of Casa Pamela are perfectly accurate. The home was clean on our arrival, and everything was well-maintained. We had the need for some minor maintainence while there, and the local property manager was quick to respond. Marilyn, the leasing agent, was prompt and professional in all of our interactions, and we had the added plus of meeting her and her husband while at Casa Pamela.

Her recommendation of Gecko Rent-a-Car netted us a new Chevy Suburban and great service at hundreds less than we would have paid from on-airport rental agencies.

We dined five of our ten nights at Frascati in La Cruz. The service and the food were incredible at very reasonable prices. Highly recommended!

Most memorable for our 9-year-old niece: the pool, and the inexpensive horseback rides sold by people going up and down the beach during the day.

I have spent much of my time back recommending Casa Pamela to family and to friends. I offer the same recommendation to the reader.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at Casa Pamela -- but then, what's not to enjoy! It is unfortunate people are staying away from Mexico with all the bad press, but if they only realized this area of Mexico is very safe, but at the same time, everyone should use caution, just as at home. It was a pleasure meeting you and we thoroughly enjoyed your niece as she was such a pleasant little girl and she obviously loved to swim and was very excited when she saw the horses on the beach. We have always enjoyed our meals at Frascatti and the staff at Gecko Rent a Car in Bucerias really do go out of their way to accommodate visitors.
Many thanks, and I look forward to being able to accommodate you again.

Our stay at Casa Pamela was wonderful. This was our second year of spending a week here and we again found the house and pool to be delightful. The area is very safe and has none of the problems that are in the news for the border cities. Our arrangements and payment transaction was very smooth and convenient with lots of helpful information regarding the restaurants and shops nearby. We have found this to be a serene get-away for a break from the Kansas winter weather.

Our stay at Casa Pamela November 2010

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Casa Pamela. Denis and Adam at Gecko were terrific. We would highly recommend them.

Casa Pamela was such a great home. The master bed was firm and we slept like champs. Loved the Gustavo Martinez artwork. Chaba was so sweet. Maria was over the top fantastic. We had her come twice :) We tipped her handsomely as the price for the massage was extremely reasonable. She is such a sweet woman. You were right, it was a treat. :)

Thank you for all your help in the planning of our trip. I took your card and will be looking to see what other properties you represent and if they are in different locations.

Happy holidays to you, and all the best for the New Year. Again, thank you for making our trip super.

In Our Hearts Forever

  • 5 of 5
After 35 years of working life, we decided to treat ourselves to a Mexican vacation. What a wonderful way to start our retirement. We spent a memorable week on the ocean at Casa Pamela in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. It was more than we could have asked for. Great accommodations, a beautiful ocean view, a wonderful private pool, excellent food and great local entertainment and activities.

We loved all the bright colours and traditional art work in the warm and inviting Casa which had all the comforts of home including wireless internet. We especially enjoyed the quiet mornings out by the pool as we sipped on our freshly squeezed orange juice and planned out our activities for the day.

We loved floating in the pool while we watched the boats and sealife in the ocean just yards away.

Our whale watching, snorkeling, and fishing trip with Jesus was one of our highlights. The lunch that was provided was to die for and the ice cold Corona's were a super touch.

Dancing at Philo's Palapa Bar is an experience we will never forget ... the most relaxed, friendly atmosphere with great music, great people, delicious food and all the refreshments a person needs.

I can't say enough ... we enjoyed every day ... every experience ... every meal ... the friendly people ... great weather ... great music ... great accommodations!

Thank you Marilyn for all your help. The information you sent us before our trip took all the worries out of our travels. The Guest Handbook in the Casa had invaluable information and helped us plan our adventures.

I want to thank John and Carol as well as all the staff from the La Puntilla complex. Your service was top notch!

Thank you Pam for sharing your beautiful Casa with us. I am looking forward to returning with friends. Can't wait to come back to your little piece of paradise. As Philo sing say "I've Been Dreaming Of Mexico"!

Casa Pamela, 2009

  • 2 of 5
The web page looks great, but this home needs updating and freshening. The kitchen and baths are worn. The house has plenty of towels and linens. You need a car and the beach is not for swimming.

We had problems with the water. The local manager was responsive and did get someone over to fix the problem, but we had 2 episodes where the water failed. The housekeeper was lovely and ambitious. No complaints, except that the owners need to clean out the old utensils and storage area and get rid of clutter, freshen the cabinets and clean the interior nooks and crannies.
The location enables you to get to some great beach areas by car. La Cruz has some nice restaurants, Frascati, for one. Mark"s in Bucerius and Cafe Des Arts in Punta Mita are also terific. These are all uper end eateries, but excellent.
I would advise the owners to do some work to update to higher standard.

Owner's Response: It is unfortunate Casa Pamela did not meet your standards. I apologize for the problem with the water and am sorry that you were inconvenience for 30 minutes while the problem was remedied.

The photos on the website were taken in early December 2007, shortly after the house was freshly painted and redecorated. The text was written from the poolside patio at Casa Pamela within the last three years when the house first came on the rental market, so it is regrettable that you feel the website does not accurately represent the property.

The beach in front of the La Puntilla complex is sandy and there are rocks under the water line as the La Puntilla complex is built behind a reef. However, many of our guests have enjoyed swimming and snorkelling in front of the house.

While we do suggest having a car would be handy, it is not absolutely necessary as taxi service is readily available from La Cruz and a taxi will be at the house within 3 minutes of receiving your phone call.

The (easy) 10 minute walk along the beach (or a 15 minute walk along the road) will take you into the village of La Cruz de Huanacaxtle to several very good restaurants—including Frascati--and to the new luxurious 400 slip Marina Riviera Nayarit where there are restaurants, evening entertainment, fresh fish markets and some shopping. As well, the bus runs every few minutes from the top of the driveway and will take you to all points in the Bay of Banderas.

For your next visit to the Puerto Vallarta area, may I suggest one of the new 5 star resorts in Nuevo Vallarta or an exclusive resort in Punta Mita.
