Owner response: Our goal is to make guests stay as relaxing as possible by making things as easy and comfortable as we can. We always appreciate any feedback, and to us, this is the ultimate compliment any hosts can receive.
The pictures for Crow's Nest are amazing, but nothing can really prepare you for the beautiful views this accommodation offers. You're right on the water, and with the nearby marina, you can relax and just enjoy - either from the deck or the pool. The village itself has several nice restaurants - with good food and live entertainment. Bob the owner couldn't have been more accommodating - I'm still mssing happy hour! Will definitely return!

Owner response: Thank you for the nice review, it makes us very happy when our guests enjoy the crowsnest and I look forward to your return. Happy hour will be at the same time.
Wonderful Holiday in La Cruz Huanacaxtle. The view from the pool was amazing, watching the boats coming and going from the Marina and seeing the whales perform was a great experience. Bob the owner was very helpful and a pleasure to have Happy Hour with. Would recommend this VRBO Beachfront Cottage and can't wait for our holiday next year.

Beach front haven (or is it spelled "heaven"?)
Beach front haven (or is it spelled "heaven"?)
We just returned from a 12 day stay, along with another couple, at Casita Crow's Nest, The guys had just completed the 17th Baja Ha-Ha and sailed across to LaCruz to meet us girls there. We found this wonderful vacation retreat quite by accident and were so grateful to have discovered it. We have stayed in Puerto Vallarta before (fun, but too busy and noisy) and in Punta Mita (not enough night life) and this location is perfect! An easy stroll to the markets, restaurants, bus stops and right on the beach! We especially enjoyed Enriques for their huge seafood platter to share, Charlie's for fabulous burgers and football on Sundays, and Frascati for romantic atmosphere and excellent Italian cuisine. Philo's on Saturday nights and Ana Banana's Sunday afternoon were our dance spots. We walked everywhere, met friendly, fun people...natives, tourists and transplants! Bob and Deane were a wealth of information, so accommodating and just wonderful, good people. We will be back, certainly to visit when we're sailing, and definitely to stay again in one of the casitas! Thank you for our best vacation yet!! Neal and Randi San Diego, CA

We stayed at the Crow's Nest the 2nd week of March, and we had an awesome vacation ! The casita had everything we needed, and the view is spectacular. We enjoyed buying fresh fish each morning at the marina market, and grilling up our dinner at the casita. The village is quaint, and everything is within walking distance. Bob and Deane were so helpful. We are looking forward to our next visit.

The Perfect getaway
The Perfect getaway
We only had a week here, but sure plan on coming back to stay longer. It was great wandering the quiet beach, exploring the new marina and enjoying the great little treasures the quaint village of La Cruz had to offer. Loved sitting with our evening coctail watching the yachts! The owners were helpful, and freindly, thanks, Bob and Deane for making our stay great. Great little spot!

The Utimate in Relaxation
The Utimate in Relaxation
My Husband and I wanted to find a quiet, relaxing and romantic place, close to a pool, on the waterfront andnear a small village. The 'Crow'snest was all of that and more. The beach was beautiful and almost endless, never were we accosted by vendors on the beach. We saw very few wandering the beach up that far. The town was freindly, safe and charming. Food was good and we were able to get to other areas easily. I would reccomend this place to all, but the loud and parting type. Owners were a pleasure to meet. Mike and Erin
