Darin introduced me to Puerto Vallarta the first year we met. He was already in love with the city and I immediately feel in love with the people, places, sights and sounds. There is something very special about PV that neither of us has found anywhere else in our travels over the decades. There is a freedom and warmth there that heals the soul from within. You can walk anywhere you need to and there's plenty to do in town and lots more to do one a self-guided excursion. We know you'll love our Mexico home just as much as we do.
Darin & Carl purchased this condo in 2013
We looked for a place to buy there ever since our first trip there together. We came close to buying before but never did find the right fit for us. But then plans for Amapas 353 were announce and we were one of the first couples to buy. Anxiously we waited 13 months for the building to be completed. We partnered with Chawnalee, a designer on the ground in PV, along with her cadre of talented artisans to craft nearly all original, hand-made furniture. The result is a perfect storm of love, passion, appreciation and gratitude.
We installed a custom, heated dipping pool to kick back and relax for a morning soak or to watch the spectacular sunset night after night.
We absolutely loved our time here. The concierge was waiting for us when we arrived. The condo is clean and everything works perfectly. The bed is very comfortable. The views from the balconies are incredibly. the dipping pool is perfect. The owners communicate well and even provided recommendations of local restaurants and activities (I highly recommend dinner at the Swedes).
The pool and grill area on the roof is very nice. We hardly saw anyone else up there. It was never crowded.
The building is perfectly located with quick and easy beach access across the street and close enough the the fun part of town where you can easily walk to dinner, shopping or bars. Yet, not so close to everything to be on loud streets. Evenings on the balcony with a glass of wine were peaceful and relaxing. I can't think of anything we felt was lacking during our trip. Our stay at Casa De La Cruz was pure perfection.
We stayed at this wonderful home October 13-19. It is as close to perfect as any place can get. Frankly, it was even better than the description, spotless and very well appointed when we arrived. Darin and Carl walked me through all the steps getting ready to arrive and everything went off without a hitch. The condo had absolutely everything we needed, from kitchen items to plenty of luxurious towels to tons of storage space. The washer and dryer were handy too. The space was larger than anticipated, beautifully decorated and comfortable. The patio are was quite nice and the dipping pool was awesome - that got a lot of use! The views were gorgeous and the location was near perfect. We walked everywhere and only took a cab back when we were too tired to trek up the bit of a hill from town. Puerto Vallarta is one of our favorite places on the planet, and staying at Darin and Carl's fabulous home only made us love it even more. I highly recommend this property.
We stayed here last year. It was a beautiful home away from home. It has everything you need and more. It is decorated to fit a king or queen. There is a pool on the balcony and a infiniti pool on the roof. The view is amazing. It is somewhere you will always want to return to. I loved this home. Darin and Carl you have a lovely place and thank you for sharing it.
We recently stayed at the Amapas 353 condo for 3 nights before heading to Nuevo Vallarta for another 7, and the time spent at the condo location was the highlight of our vacation. The home is tastefully decorated, and has an amazing ocean view from every room, including both bathrooms. The location was excellent, with TONS of great restaurants and bars located within walking distance. Carl was super easy to deal with, and provided lots of good tips on where to eat and drink locally. We will absolutely be back to Vallarta, and will absolutely be staying at Casa de la Cruz again. Thanks Darin & Carl, we loved your place!

Second trip to PV and staying at Casa de la Cruz. Property is always well maintained and the proximity to everything is why we will continue to come back here.
Everything about my stay at Casa de la Cruz was perfect. The condo was elegant yet comfortable. The view was magnificent. The location of the property was extremely convenient for the beach and on foot for eating and shopping. By far the best vacation spot I've ever experienced. Perfect for two!
