About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 7+

Note: All unit pictures were taken June of 2015,

Wonderful authentic Mexican villa. PRIVATE Beachfront property. Private Pool, Private Yard. On the Puerto Vallarta Banderas Bay. Straight out the window see the sparkling city lights of the City of Puerto Vallarta.

Concrete and Marble Construction. Ideal location for the adventure minded traveler. Swim in your private kidney-shaped pool - step off the property and directly on the beach. Barbecue by the pool, or cook in air-conditioned comfort

in the full size kitchen.

The ocean is out one door and the mountains are out the other. Watch or participate in the boating in the quaint marina a 2 minute walk away. The house and carport areas are fully gated. An in house chef is available - experience this once during your trip for a special occasion. This villa is ready to fulfill your vacation needs.

Location: You have it all in La Cruz. You have the peace and quiet of your own villa right on the ocean, yet centrally located between all the popular hot spots to visit. The Puerto Vallarta Airport is only 12 miles away. Attend the hugely popular 'Sunday Market' on the marina front. 100's of people come for miles to attend this weekly event (Nov -April). You can also hit other nearby towns via a short bus or boat ride or drive. The city bus stop for all these places is just a few blocks away.

La Cruz is a great 'central' location, as it is midway between Puerto Vallarta to the south, and Punta Mita at the far end of the bay to the north.

Punta Mita is home to the famous Jack Nicklaus signature designed golf course and the exclusive Four Seasons Hotel complex. Other nearby towns include Bucerias with great authentic Mexican restaurants and shopping, or Nuevo Vallarta and Marina Vallarta. Also enjoy the brand new multi-million dollar marina built within a stones throw of the villa. Stroll the stops or eat at the restaurant surrounded by water!

This unit was built in 1998. The best thing about this unit is it's location of direct beachfront with it's own private pool and yard only for your group. It's also so convenient to town, restaurants, the marina and more. Easy walking distance! This is a great deal for a direct Beachfront unit with private pool and yard.

The villa is beautiful! The environment is peaceful and was the perfect setting for our very relaxing vacation. We felt that we were in our own world, with the private pool and beach access, yet it is an easy walk to restaurants and town. We will be back!

Beautiful house on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks, and it wasn't long enough to enjoy everything the area offered. The house stayed comfortable without using the air conditioner at all. The kitchen was equipped with everything needed to prepare an elaborate meal, although I have to admit we cooked very little. There are so many restaurants within walking distance or a short drive from the villa. The Sunday market at the Marina is a great place to pick up souvenirs and fresh food. Joni and the staff respond quickly to questions and/or problems. This villa in La Cruz is a place to get away from the hustle and bustle and enjoy the garden, the waves, and the laid back atmosphere. Thanks Joni, for sharing your villa with us.

Wonderful house & kid friendly beach / town

  • 3 of 5

Great rating all around! What we liked about it?

1 - The house - good open air kitchen setup, nice living room / dining area, wonderful pool area, nice hammocks under the palapa. New washer/dryer. Fans that help circulate air everywhere!

2. The beach - amazingly clean and wave free beach. Just perfect if you have kids who want to play and frolick in the sand and "surf" all day. We had three 4-year old toddlers and they loved it. Best clean beach in the northern PV area

3. The Town - La Cruz is definitely a mexican village, and is for those who want to be off the beaten path. Not for those who want a resort or tourity vibe. Yet even here, restaurants we want to were amazing and many were run by ex-pats and served people from all around. The Heladeria on the town square makes popsicles that you will never find anywhere else - its that good. And the fact that the fish market/ fishermen dock right next to the house!

Joni: The best! Made it all easy

Hi Joni,

Everyone loved your place. It was just as advertised - awesome!

We would definitely recommend you to anyone traveling to La Cruz / PV.

Your staff were very attentive and helpful.

We hired the chef for one evening and the meal they prepared was superb.

We didn't want to leave, so we will be returning.

Kindest regards,

Pat and John O'Toole

Nearest Airport
12 Miles

La Cruz is a great growing area. It’s about 12 miles north of the Puerto Vallarta airport in the more newly developed end of the Bay of Banderas. La Cruz is a town of about 1 square mile which started out as a small fishing village. Although the fishermen still continue the tradition and bring their fresh catches in every day for you to purchase directly, there is now a lot more going on than that. In 2009, La Cruz finished a brand new marina. It’s said to be the biggest of the 3 marinas in the Bay. The marina has shops and restaurants and entertainment. The construction of the marina has brought in many new and exciting things to the town too, such as lots of new restaurants, shops, bars and entertainment. On most Sundays you’ll find the La Cruz Open Market which lines the marina with over 100 vendors and draws 100’s of people from around the Bay to see the unique goods that are offered such as hand made jewelry, fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods, sauces, hand made hair ornaments and much more. The restaurants vary from things such as the doctor who opens his house on weekends to make brisket type meat tacos with delicious sauce choices, to upscale restaurants with world class chefs on staff. There are also wonderful locals who give great services for things such as massages in house, in house chef and much more. You’ll leave having Mexican friends!

Guests love the location of this because it's on the edge of town so very easy to walk to anywhere in the town which is about a square mile. Looks are deceiving in this fishing village. Behind the doors you'll find lots of activity, beautiful Mexican architecture, surprising stores and restaurants. Ever since the new marina was built about 5 years ago - lots of new things have come to this town to accommodate the large volume of boating activity. Come experience this town and it's authentic Mexican feel.
