About Ada Christensen

Hello, my husband and I met 19 years ago scuba diving in Puerto Vallarta. I was raised in the area and now live in Washington state. We would come visit my family every winter and always dreamed of owning a home in La Cruz so in 2001 that dream came true, we bought property and began building a house with a lot of love and pride. In February 2018 we decided to share our home with you and hope you have memorable experiences there like we do.

Ada Christensen purchased this house in 2001

Sweeping view of La Cruz

  • 5 of 5

Perched up on the hillside overlooking La Cruz and the lights of Bucerias at night, this inviting home is a treat to relax at. We enjoyed the upper deck where there is a comfortable hammock. You can hear the rustle of the palm trees as the breeze goes through. The layout is well considered and pleasurably open concept. The stairs between levels are lovely spiral with iron railings, we loved them! They do require ease of mobility to navigate.

Overall, lovely and private along with great kitchen for cooking in.

Worked perfectly for us!

  • 5 of 5

The property is as described and depicted in the photos. Very nice! We didn't realize La Cruz was quite as far from Puerto Vallarta as it is, but that turned out to be a good thing as we rented a car and did day trips north to Islas Marietas, Sayulita, and San Francisco, east to San Sebastian, as well as several days spent in the Old Town and south to Boca de Tomatlan. There are beautiful beaches all up the coast! We'd come back to La Cruz for dinner, given there are at least ten good restaurants, and spend the evenings enjoying the house! The Sunday market down by the marina is primo! We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it!

Owner's Response: We are pleased to hear that you loved the house, and we think that's great that you discovered all the small neighboring towns that have so much to offer. Sometimes they get forgotten being so close to PV. We look forward to having you back soon! Ada

This beauteful building was all it is said to be.. the kitchen is modern and beds and bath clean

  • 5 of 5

The location is just above La Cruz overlooking the Marina and Bey of Bandares. Shoppping, Whale watching, or just enjoying a beauteful Mexican village are only a few perks. Resturants and entertainment are at your feet. Bus or Taxi trips south to Puerto Valarta are quick and cheap.' enjoy

Great Value and Great View

  • 5 of 5

This house worked perfectly for us. We live on a boat in Mexico and stayed here for 4 days while our boat was having some work done in the La Cruz Marina.

If you have been to Mexico and understand the funkiness that makes Mexico and particularly La Cruz wonderful than you will like this place. There is much about this house that is better than the price would indicate. Great finishes in the house - specifically the bathrooms and kitchen. For the price you would not think you would get a house this nice. There are some interesting things about the house that other reviewers have mentioned. I would recommend this to anyone that is looking for that fun and interesting La Cruz experience.
