We first discovered La Cruz & Bucerias 19 years ago & have been spending at least three months of each year here ever since. Over the past 20+ years, we've developed built special homes on the Oregon Coast and been involved renting our vacation homes.
We have a wonderful family, with nine grandchildren, who we spend much time with. Actually Casa Kaeli was designed with their visits in mind (& named after our oldest granddaughter), so you can be assured it is incredible as a vacation spot for families to gather!
We enjoy traveling, entertaining, and making new friends. I am a glass artist, mi esposo a finish carpenter.
Sue Lyons purchased this villa in 2008
Casa Kaeli is our second home in this fantastic area, just north of Puerto Vallarta (our first home, Casa Susana, was one of the first three homes built where Marina Nayarit now is.)
This property is perfectly located between two very popular villages for vacationers, as well as the large community of expats from the US & Canada that live here.
The casa has everything you'll need to feel at home & to totally relax (indeed; our housekeeper reports that many guests rarely leave the casa... in spite of all the things there are to do!)
Walk the beach for MILES, enjoy the many great & varied dining experiences near-by. Great, convenient shopping and Nayarit's famous beaches! Vacation in a custom home, and experience authentic living in this wonderful area: rich culture, tourist activities and adventurous daily living in tropical mexico.
It doesn't get much better than Casa Kaeli!!
Quiet, serene setting, yet very close to all services and activities.
Our guests tell us our homes are much more nicely appointed than what they generally expect, and find, in vacation rental homes, and we pride ourselves in offering this 'home away from home' experience.
The casa was excellent and the view was wonderful! The house was well appointed and comfortable. We enjoyed walkin the beach in both directions--to Bucerias and La Cruz--but it was hard to get out of the pool. Really a great place.
The villa is nice and big. 3 levels of nicely decorated rooms. Although the patio doors were made to open up and
let the outside in, they were closed during our stay. They have A/C on each level (which you need in summer)but
they ask you to turn them off when not in rooms. Bugs! Again, the summer/rainy season is to blame I'm sure.
They have these cement ants that just take over where ever there is a damp area. One night the whole outside area
was covered in these flying bugs, We woke up to thousands of dead bugs all over furniture and patios.
The infinity pool is beautiful, we used this a lot. Yard is small but very nicely landscaped leading to beach. Not
much of a beach since its rocky, but beautiful just the same.
The place was clean enough but could use some painting and updating.
Lots stairs. If you have people who have trouble up and down stairs this is not for you. If youhave a lot of people
and want privacy
and want the space this is for you.
The owners and help are very nice and accommodating.
I stayed here with 6 girlfriends for a week and was just super disappointed at how run down the whole place was..... The photos are very misleading...... The bones of the house are okay but everything in it is old and run down and not the cleanest...... Sheets old and thin, no comforter or blanket on the beds just an empty duvet cover:( towels scratchy with bleach spots.... Gross old rugs in the bathrooms.... grungy dishes..... Furniture just old and run down..... Pool furniture all broken and rusty....we felt duped..... But we made the best if the location and got around to some great spots..... But when we left the sliding doors have no lock and the back gate to the beach fell off its rusty hinges so we couldnt really feel good about the security of our passports & valuables when we left:(. We could have booked a way better place if we would have known:( not worth the $$$
Casa Kaeli is everything it says it is amd MORE! We went with four couples and there was plenty of room for 8 people without ever feeling crowded. feliz the housekeeper is super friendly and can help you with what you need. Sue the owner will send you all kinds of information to help you fnd anything you need to access while staying in P.V. We rented stand up boards for our stay and it was so great being able to board right outside the front door. Just a short walk along the beach and you are in La Cruz which has the fresh fish market and great restaurants and live entertainmrnt. You can also walk to Bucerias along the beach in about 30 minutes. We feel very safe in this area and have no problems riding the buses everywhere and exploring thecarea. We recommend taking the bus to Sayulita and hanging at the beach there for the day. We love Casa Kaeli so much we have suggested the place to several friends who have also stayed there and loved it and....we are going back again November 2013!!! Go ahead and book this place you woll not be disappinted. Cindy, Whistler, BC Canada
We had a fabulous time at Casa Kaeli! Our kids loved the pool and looking for shells on the beach. The house is enormous and gorgeous and so open. We enjoyed using the grill and sitting on the veranda overlooking the pool, beach, sea, mountains while sipping cocktails. Playa Manzanilla is a fun place to go for the day, and only 5 minutes by car. The Sunday arts and crafts market at the marina was so wonderful. Feliz came to clean a few days during the week and is such a warm, kind woman. Thanks to Susan and Greg for your awesome house!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay at Casa Kaeli. The home is lovely and comfortable. The photos attached to this listing are accurate, but cannot fully capture the relaxed ambiance of this beautifully decorated and well designed casa. We especially loved the ingenious telescoping screen doors that allow the living and kitchen area to become one with the covered dining area under the palapa. High ceiling mounted fans ensured that the casa was always breezy and cool. The beautifully tended infiniti pool gets sun for the better part of the day and is completely private from neighbors and the beach. We watched sailboat races and diving pelicans from the deck during the day. From the master bedroom we could hear the waves crashing at night.
Casa Kaeli is located between La Cruz and Bucerias, with a large selection of nearby restaurants ranging from high end (Marks in Bucerias) to the excellent street tacos. Philos in La Cruz is a fun place to go dancing. Shopping is easy--there is a Mega supermarket nearby for major provisions and plenty of MiniSupers for smaller purchases. Don't miss the Sunday Farmer's Market at the Marina in La Cruz.
Susan and Greg supplied a well thought out "Welcome" document that helped us get oriented to the area and they were wonderfully responsive to our questions and concerns.
It was very hard to leave this delightful casa. We definitely plan on returning.
Located on the beach between two very popular, authentic mexican villages of La Crux de Huancaxtle and Bucerias.
