Other Puerto Vallarta Properties house description

Oceanfront with private pool, 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom Casa Terra is located in the gated and secure complex of La Puntilla, just 20 minutes north of the Puerto Vallarta airport between the towns of Bucerias and La Cruz de Huanacaxtle on Mexico’s Pacific coast. This area on the northern portion of the Bay of Banderas is quickly becoming known as Riviera Nayarit.

La Puntilla is a luxurious, upscale gated and secure complex of 19 homes on 7 acres and each house has its own private swimming pool. There are 10 homes located directly on the beach and 9 homes in the oceanview row. Casa Terra is house #9 in the beachfront row of homes. As Casa Terra is conveniently located between Bucerias and La Cruz, you will not be bothered by beach vendors or timeshare sales people while you enjoy your vacation.

At Casa Terra, the living room and master bedroom open directly onto a private beach facing patio where you can enjoy the beautiful sunrises. From your patio take a step down to your private pool and then walk about 40 feet across the tree lined grass to the beach. With the ocean at your front door, explore tide pools and comb the beach. You can walk along the beach 10-15 minutes to La Cruz or during low tide walk 30 minutes to Bucerias. Downtown Puerto Vallarta is only 45 minutes away.

The master bedroom suite opens onto the poolside patio and the ocean beyond, and features a king sized bed and master ensuite bath with soaker tub and shower. Air conditioning as well as screens on the wall-to-wall windows allow for a comfortable night's sleep.

The second bedroom features a king sized bed while the third bedroom has twin beds, convertible to king bed. Two main bathrooms, both with marble showers are located just outside the bedroom doors. The second and third bedrooms open onto the landscaped front garden.

The home office located in the master bedroom offers COMPLIMENTARY high speed modem and Wi Fi service throughout the house and yard (bring your laptop). There is a phone for local calls and a second phone for FREE LONG DISTANCE PHONE CALLS to Canada and the US -- no computer required.

As well as two shaded eating areas on the pool deck--a shaded area tucked under the roof overhang, and a patio table with umbrella and chairs near the water--there is also a spacious dining area and a laundry room with full sized washer and dryer.

Comfortable outdoor furniture on the large, partially shaded poolside patio lends itself to a bit of daydreaming, a relaxing snooze or day of basking around the pool to work on your tan--or just settle back on one of the pool lounges with your favourite book and look up to watch the sea birds plunge into the bay for their next meal. For your outdoor enjoyment we provide QUALITY patio furniture, chaise lounges and pool floats, a picnic cooler and freezer packs and a beach umbrella. All this, plus beachfront and private pool!

After a day in paradise, casually walk the beach to one of the many fabulous restaurants in La Cruz or Bucerias for dinner, or whip up a gourmet meal in the fully equipped kitchen that is complete with cookware and utensils, floor standing cooler with bottled water, new 3 door stainless steel refrigerator, gas stove with oven, new stainless steel dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, and toaster. And of course, no vacation home is complete without a blender and glasses for those frosty margaritas!

We can help you arrange for an onsite massage, facial, manicure or pedicure--all at a very reasonable prices--and in the comfort and privacy of your own casa.

From the nearby Marina Riviera Nayarit you can arrange for a fishing, snorkelling or sightseening tour around the Bay of Banderas. There are several fresh fish markets at the marina where you can purchase fish, shrimp, lobster, etc. -- all fresh off the boats that morning. There is also a wonderful Sunday Market at the Marina featuring 'Made in Mexico' crafts, gifts and delicious food items.

You might decide to fire up the built-in stainless steel gas barbeque and grill up a feast of freshly caught fish purchased that morning from a fisherman in La Cruz, from one of the fish stalls at the Marina or from one of the markets in Bucerias. Savour your meal with a glass of wine and dine poolside while you admire the evening sky with the lights of Bucerias and Puerto Vallarta twinkling across the bay. Midnight dip in the private pool, anyone?

After a busy day in paradise, you’ll want to relax on the comfy couch in the living room while you listen to music and enjoy the view or watch the new 48” flat screen HD TV with full package Star Choice English language satellite, BlueRay disc player and a new CD player and i-Pod docking station.

Casa Terra is wheelchair accessible and as a non-smoking home, we invite you to smoke outside or on the patio only, please. A well behaved pet may be allowed--please inquire. A security guard is at the gated entrance 24 hours a day, and a security patrolman is on the beach in the evenings and throughout the night.

Our local property managers live in nearby La Cruz and are available to answer any questions you might have.

The new Marina Riviera Nayarit is an easy 10 minute walk along the beach and 5 more minutes will take you to the village of La Cruz where there are restaurants, evening entertainment, shopping and fresh fish markets. The town of Bucerias with many very good restaurants and shopping is 8 minutes by car or bus and downtown Puerto Vallarta is 45 minutes away.

Escape the crowds of Puerto Vallarta and enjoy the privacy, comfort, peaceful surroundings and spectacular oceanfront views at Casa Terra. Come and enjoy our slice of paradise and create your own special memories of Mexico.

                                The first impressive part of renting this house was the manager Marilyn who responded quickly, comprehensively and kindly with lots of information, answering any question, no matter how tiny. Before we arrived we were so well-briefed that we were assured of no unpleasant surprises. The villa itself was extremely comfortable for our party of six. It is very well equipped with all amenities, including lots and lots of beach towels. The photos more than accurately reflect the property itself, but cannot quite describe what it is like to be sitting there looking at that view at sunrise! We appreciated the twice-weekly thorough cleaning services of Gloria. We also highly recommend that visitors take advantage of the on-site spa services provided by Maria. We had various massages, wraps and facials, all of which were so relaxing. She is wonderful at providing the type of treatments that one would expect in a first class hotel, without having to leave the Casa. The nearby towns of Bucerias and La Cruz have a variety of good restaurants, which we took advantage of many times during our two week stay. I would highly recommend this property as a spectacular vacation experience from start to finish. Everyone we encountered, both associated with the property and outside of it, was friendly and reliable. If you want to get from the airport to the property we would also recommend that you take a look at the A/C car services provided by Divatours (see their site on-line). Also if you are wondering whether or not to rent a car (we didn't), the taxi services are plentiful and inexpensive. We also took the local bus (8 pesos) to the supermarket and got a cab back. We would not rent a car if we returned to La Cruz for a vacation. Once again, many thanks to everyone who made our vacation possible and enjoyable at Casa Terra.

                                Recommended for: Age 55+, families with young children, tourists without a car, families with teenagers.

                                Manager response: Thank you so much for your kind words, Sue. It was a pleasure doing business with you, from your initial inquiry and throughout the booking process. I agree that the view of the sun coming up over the mountains is spectacular and leads to thoughts of what the rest of the day has in store. I'm glad you were able to enjoy the onsite services that Maria provides, and at such reasonable rates. Gloria is delightful and does such a great job of keeping the Casa clean and tidy. Also happy to hear the airport pick-up and drop off service worked for you as well as taxis and the bus. It can be an adventure riding the bus--especially if you never ride the bus at home. I can't say enough about the many very good restaurants in La Cruz and Bucerias and all at such reasonable prices. I do hope you were able to visit the Sunday market at the Marina Riviera Nayarit or at least buy some fresh fish and shrimp at the local fish vendors. Again, it was a pleasure doing business with you and I hope to be able to accommodate you another time. Marilyn

                                Our week went by so quickly. La Casa Terra is a wonderful home in a peaceful location with a million dollar view. I loved waking up each morning to watch the sunrise over the mountains with sailboats anchored just offshore swaying in the warm morning breeze. Many great restaurants are within walking distance. The Sunday Market at the marina should not be missed. Also, be sure to get a spa treatment from Maria. Marilyn's communications with us in advance of the trip were excellent, and she provided a great deal of valuable information about the area which was greatly appreciated. I hope we are able to return for another visit soon.

                                Recommended for: Age 55+, people with disabilities, romantic getaway, adventure seekers, sightseeing, families with teenagers.

                                Manager response: Thank you so much for your kind words. I am so glad you enjoyed your time at Casa Terra and I look forward to being able to accommodate you another time. My favourite time of the day is also early morning, sitting out by the pool, coffee in hand, watching the sun come up over the mountains as the sailboats sway in the breeze. I agree that the Sunday Market at the Marina in La Cruz is not to be missed. It get better -- and bigger -- every year. It is amazing the number of beautiful gift items available for purchase as well as fresh produce and flowers, baking, food treats and of course the fresh fish markets are right there with all types of seafood, fresh off the boats that morning.

                                Property was most comfortable,charming and well appointed. The pool was wonderful. Used Diva Tours for transportation from airport and back and they stopped at the Super so we could buy supplies. Gloria and John Innes were very helpful. Marilyn provided us with all the info we needed. We would highly recommend Casa Terra.

                                Great house for 4-6 people - the pictures are exactly what you'll see when you arrive. The house has everything you need and it's an easy 10 minute walk along the beach to the town of La Cruz and the fish market. It was so nice to have a gas grill and grill up the fresheast fish and seafood from the fish market. The pool warmed up nicely in the afternoon and it was a great house to relax and re-charge the batteries. Marilyn was superb to work with and ensures you have everything you need to enjoy your vacation. I definitely recommend this house and the area. We stayed in late April, early May (which is slow season) and it was so quiet and relaxing - if that's what you're looking for, definitely stay in the slow season. We enjoyed downtown La Cruz and really enjoyed the marina restaurants.

                                Manager response: Thanks for your kind comment, Cindy. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at Casa Terra. Late April/early May is a nice time to vacation in the area as it is not too hot and fairly quiet as most of the tourists have left for the season. I'm glad you were able to enjoy the FRESHEST FISH ever from the fish markets at the Marina Riviera Nayarit in La Cruz -- an easy 10 minute walk from the house. I look forward to being able to accommodate you anothre time. Marilyn

                                Our family stayed at Casa Terra for our spring break this year. Along for the trip were our 18, 16, 13 and 10 year old children. We couldn't have been happier with our stay. Casa Terra was beautiful, and had everything we could possibly need while we were there. I had read the numerous reviews before going, and had high expectations, but was delighted to find that it was even better than expected. The pool was very clean, and the beach was outstanding. We loved "Canelo" the La Puntilla dog, We also loved the beautiful view, looking across the bay at the mountains every morning and evening. We tried a number of restaurants in Bucerias and La Cruz. We were happy to find the food to be outstanding, and very affordable for our group. The market in La Cruz on Sunday morning was wonderful. We bought a number of authentic foods which we enjoyed preparing throughout the rest of the week. We also drove to Puerta Vallarta for an afternoon and were happy to find that it was easy to get to and there was so much to do, we hardly knew where to begin. We did rent a car, and I can't say enough good things about Gecko car rental. Adam was a wealth of information, and tremendously helpful. They made that stressful time (landing at the airport, and then worrying about getting to where you need to go with a minimum of hassle) much easier. They also helped us book at tour through Vallarta Adventures. That was truly one of the best things we did. I highly recommend the Outdoor Adventure to anyone with children, it is a never to be forgotten experience. The last thing I want to comment on is the safety. Several people expressed concerns about traveling to Mexico when I told them that was where we were going. I am so glad that I didn't listen. I felt safer in Mexico than I did in many parts of my home town. The people were wonderful, friendly and so helpful. We slept with the beach doors open every night so we could hear the ocean. Literally, on the last night we were there, my husband and I went into Bucerias for a nice, "grown up" dinner, and sent the kids to walk into La Cruz to get their own dinner. They had a wonderful time, and again, there were no worries. Canelo literally escorted them to town, and hung around while they had dinner...I can assure you, we would have never allowed our children to be walking around (with no cell phones...since I confiscated them ) if we had not felt extremely secure. All in all, it was truly our best vacation!

                                Manager response: Thank you for your kind words, Mari. I'm so glad you enjoyed your family vacation at Casa Terra. It always amazes me how many very good (reasonably priced) restaurants there are in La Cruz and nearby Bucerias. The new Sunday Market at the marina in La Cruz is a bonus to the area with beautifuly crafted "Made in Mexico" gifts -- no "beach junk" and wonderful food treats as well as the fresh fish markets for fish, shrimp, lobster, oysters, etc. I'm also happy your car rental worked out with Gecko Car Rental and I have alwasy found Adam, Denis and Lalo so easy to work with. It is unfortunate the media focuses on the drug related violence in Mexico -- and that is exactly what it is -- drug related violence. If tourists only knew what they are missing by staying away from this beautiful, quiet area and the very friendly and helpful local people. Your trip to downtown Puerto Vallarta sounds like fun, and yes, there is so much to do and see there--but then it is nice to get "home" to your own quiet oasis that is Casa Terra -- to say nothing of the PRIVATE swimming pool! Again, thank you for your comments and I hope to be able to accommodate you another time. Marilyn

It is unfortunate a passenger on the plane told you it was not safe to drive in Mexico--but you rented a car in any case and did some sightseeing in the area.

                                Thank you for letting us spend our family vacation at Casa Terra. We are "regulars" to Puerto Vallarta and the Bay of Banderas area and absolutely, this is one of the best properties for a family vacation we have had. We want to recognize eepecially, Gloria the housekeeper for Casa Terra, who was very helpfull. We will return next year and hope to rent Casa Terra for a month.

                                We had a terrific stay at Casa Terra and the house is perfect for three couples. During our two weeks in Mexico we stayed in three different properties in the Puerto Vallarta area but this was by far the most retreat-like of all our accommodation. Casa Terra has all the amenities and it is definitely a retreat! We enjoyed the patio and pool, loved walking the beach, sunrises and blue ocean, the weather and the comfortable beds! We all enjoyed La Cruz and we discovered some very good beaches when we went on a boating trip and even saw whales, and RELAXED. Our men outdid themselves by preparing evening meals of fresh fish and shrimp we purchased every day from the La Cruz Marina. John and Gloria were both friendly and helpful. On Valentine's Day the chocolate cake, orange cake and flan were yummy! Thank you for providing us with this lovely home and for the great place to stay.

                              About: I enjoy the sunshine and warm weather that Mexico provides.

                              Why Other Puerto Vallarta Properties:
                              After spending several winters in the downtown area of Puerto Vallarta, I discovered the quaint little fishing village of La Cruz de Huanactaxtle (La Cruz) located just 20 minutes north of the Puerto Vallarta airport. I enjoy the peace and quite at Casa Terra, yet I am easily able to go to the hustle and bustle of downtown Puerto Vallarta--then come home and relax by my private pool. The best of both worlds!

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              La Cruz is a wonderful, quaint little Mexican fishing village with friendly people, several very good restaurants, some evening entertainment and shopping. The town of Bucerias is a 5 to 8 minute drive or bus ride away where there are many very good restaurants, evening entertainment and shopping. Downtown Puerto Vallarta is an easy 45 minutes away. The new MEGA supermarket is 10 minutes south of the house, so no need to fight the traffing into downtown PV for groceries! The new Marina Riviera Nayarit is an easy 10 minute walk along the beach from Casa Terra and I can enjoy the restaurants, evening entertainment and buy fresh fish from the fish markets at the Marina or in La Cruz.
