We spent a wonderful winter at this gorgeous beachfront property in 2012. The pictures and description do not do justice to this fabulous Villa. We were looking for a quiet friendly community close to a small town atmosphere, and this fit everything we wanted, plus more. The villa is huge, with all amenities, American -style, large storage spaces, great garage and wonderful outdoor spaces. We met so many wonderful people, ex-pats and locals, that part of our heart will remain at Punta Pelicanos and La Cruz. This winter's schedule keeps us in California this year, but our loss is your gain. Pick this one, you won't be sorry! The owners are helpful and prompt to address concerns, and neighbors are there for you in a moment of need. Town is within walking, and the fish market is the best on the coast.

We spent 10 weeks at the villa everything was perfect it is close to town, marina (fresh fish market). The neighbors were very friendly. My wife and I with our two young children always felt very safe. The villa had all the comforts of home making us feel at home right away. We had such a great experiance that we going to come back next year for 10 more weeks.

'Villa Dona' was the perfect holiday retreat in La Cruz, Mexico ... very quiet and private. The home was spacious, comfortable and well-equipped and every bit as beautiful as advertised. No 'problema' with this rental.

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.
