Property type condo
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 3-5)

Our condo is ideally suited for a quiet Mexican holiday in the quaint little fishing town of La Cruz where you can still grab a taco from the street vendor for under $2.00 or a chicken meal for under $10.00. There are local markets with fresh seafood and all the extras to prepare your meals for yourself or try one of the many restaurants within walking distance. There are many live music venues all around. Just a short trip into Bucerias (10 minutes) or Puerto Vallarta (30 minutes) will give you plenty of variety and some more night life as well.

The infinity pool and hot tub are a treat to enjoy after a long day of surfing/boarding/boating etc. See for yourself and ENJOY!

About Lise and Scott Kalinski

Our first home is Canada but We have been to this beautiful area many times and hope to spend more time as our lives permit. We hope you will enjoy it as much as our family does.

Lise and Scott Kalinski purchased this condo in 2010

Why Lise and Scott Kalinski chose La Puntilla

We choose La Cruz because of it's quaint Mexican feel and friendly people. We liked that you can walk a block and hop the bus with your family out to the beach or into the city and get home safe and sound. Our condo is a very relaxing and rejuvenating place for our family. Our boys love to boogie board and surf at the nearby beaches!

What makes this condo unique

It's close enough to all you need, yet far enough to enjoy the peace and quiet to recharge. Share stories with others by the pool or just grab your book and read quietly! After all it is your vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the opportunity to spend a week at a condo in La Joya owned by

Lise and Scott Kalinski. The condo is very spacious. The bedrooms

are very large and bright. We could spend time on the balcony for

our breakfasts and lunches in the warm sun. There is a good spaced

kitchen area with all the modern conveniences. A washer and dryer

are also in the condo so you can do your own laundry at your

leisure. We had a wonderful view of the ocean and the pool area.

The pool was always clean and the hot tub water was nice and warm.

Our stay was very enjoyable and we would recommend it highly. The

town of La Cruz is quiet and very quaint. There are delicious

restaurants and taco stands. The marina, which is a 5 minute walk,

has nice restaurants and markets. If you rent a car their is a very

nice quiet beach about a 15 minute drive

Clean, Comfortable, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We have had the pleasure of renting this condo from Lise & Scott twice now and having rented from others through a property manager we can honestly say that renting from Lise & Scott is a painless experience. The unit is very well stocked with GOOD quality amenities and the cleanliness of the premises was greatly appreciated! The whole condominium complex is very well managed and the grounds and parking garage are kept in excellent condition; kudos to the wonderful staff. We so enjoy the town of La Cruz that is still small and yet has so much to offer... can't think of a place that we'd rather be. Thank you so much Lise and Scott for sharing your home with us!!

Aside from the condo's clean and modern facilities we liked the real Mexican atmosphere in La Cruz. We found the local inhabitants and the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The unit has Wi-Fi so we were able to communicate with family and friends also visiting La Cruz. The local market provided us with inexpensive fresh fruit, vegetables, seafood and the usual souvenirs and other tourist items. The weather was very pleasant day and night and our jeans and jackets never left the closet for the entire stay of 5 weeks. The unit has 3 air conditioners which were never used because of the soft breeze that blew through the condo when the front and rear doors and windows were left partly or fully opened. We didn't need a car at the bus service to other areas was excellent and any taxi rides very inexpensive. The airport was only 20-25 minutes away. The condo has Shaw TV so were able to watch the news back home in Canada. A definite 4 1/2 star rating.
