Memorable stay at a fabulous villa on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at this villa and enjoyed it very much. With 3 bedrooms, each with king-size beds, we had plenty of room for our 2 adult children and their spouses and our 3 1/2-year-old grandson. The location is on the beach and within very easy walking distance (on the beach) to the little town of La Cruz,. The town has a fresh fish market open 7 days each week that is supplied by local fishing boats that moor there. La Cruz has several nice restaurants offering everything from rib-eye beef tacos to gourmet meals and on Sundays there is a wonderful farmers' market on the walkways in front of the fish market, something not to be missed. 

We rented a van from Gecko car rentals in Bucerias and it was put to good use driving to the Mega store in Bucerias for groceries, to downtown Puerto Vallarta, and for exploring the surrounding area. Gecko rentals is run by some very nice, and knowledgeable, folks and they will pick you up and drop you off at the airport! They also rent paddle boards and other water toys at prices much better than those found at the local resorts... we rented two boards for two days and they delivered them right to the villa.

The question with any rental rating is: Would we rent this place again? The answer to that is: Absolutely! The location and furnishings make it a very nice vacation rental for a family outing. And, Joni does an excellent job of making it very comfortable. She is incredibly responsive to any questions you might have.

Beautiful location & a very helpful owner!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed 5 beautiful days in La Cruz. Joni was super helpful and very quick to answer any questions via email. The house is very spacious and the private pool was a delight after a hot day at Destiladeras Beach (a must visit)---beautiful white sand and perfect waves for boogie boards.

We also enjoyed a delicious and inexpensive meal on our last night there at Tacos on the Street (also a must) and we walked around the Marina afterwards. La Cruz is a very quaint little town.

Thanks Joni!! Hope to visit again one day!!

Great Get Away

  • 4 of 5

What a wonderful spot to escape winter! I have spent time in other areas around the bay and have fallen in love with La Cruz. The owners and manager are extremely prompt in answering any questions and making our stay comfortable. A beautiful location on the beach. The relaxing sound of waves. A refreshing swim in your private pool. Comfortable surroundings. We are already looking forward to next year!

Just Perfect!

  • 4 of 5

Needing a get away but also having to consider distance, cost, and ease of travel, we happened on this perfect location! After an easy flight into Puerto Vallarta airport which is modern, clean, and nice, we were only twenty minutes or so from the villa. The drive was quick, and we stopped at the main grocery store to stock up on food for cooking at home so we didn't have to depend on eating in restaurants. Once we arrived at the home, which is in a wonderfully private and gated community, the sparkling private pool and ocean beyond greeted us at the door. We arrived in paradise! What a great feeling, to be able to unwind and unpack as if we were home, and to already have food and refreshments with us. Some settling in time later, and we were in the pool and on vacation. We travelled in a "shoulder season" and I recommend you consider traveling in these off type seasons, because there are less people around, it is quiet, the weather is warm enough to be swimming as much as you want, and the surrounding services are very available. From daily walks along the beach to the beautiful marina where we watched the fishing boats and the giant yachts; to buying fish caught that morning from the fish market; to grilling poolside; to even having internet Wifi available to stay in touch back home... We absolutely loved our entire time. The house manager stayed in touch to be sure we had what we needed, and even the owner checked in with us long distance. Also the people who work in the community, the gatekeeper, groundspeople, all were kind and friendly and helpful. So easy to feel at home and comfy, even with our not so perfect Spanish. Would definitely recommend to others, and would also return again. Oh, one warning...You may not want to leave! Jody Spehar, Santa Fe, New Mexico

Sound of the surf and morning walks on the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful relaxing week on the ocean. The Villa located in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle was more than we could have asked for. Very warm and inviting, great accommodations, a beautiful ocean view, wonderful private pool, beautiful sunsets. La Cruz offered excellent restuarants,great local entertainment and activities. Fishing and snorkeling with Jesus was an exciting experience. Thank you Joni for sharing your lovely Villa with us.
