                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      Why the Owner Chose La Cruz de Huanacaxtle:
                      My wife, Donna and I purchased the Villa Dona mainly for when we partially retire from medical practice in the next few years. In the meantime, we enjoy it about 3 weeks per year when unoccupied by guests. Proximity to large airport with frequent flights provides convenient easy access.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      It's a short drive to the fun and variety of Puerta Vallarta, yet it offers a feeling of privacy and seclusion. We enjoy the plethora of nearby restaurants and activities.
