About the property

4 Bedroom Oceanfront Vacation Rental between La Cruz and Bucerias, Mexico

"We just got back from a weekend getaway at this lovely property and we're already planning another one!! My husband and I and 2 other couples (we all live in Puerto Vallarta) decided to get away from the big city ;) sort of last minute and we wanted to rent a house for the weekend, somewhere close to us that somehow still felt "away" where we could all relax and recharge (we're all business owners here). I was really fortunate to find this house available because it had everything we were looking for and more and Amanda, the owner, couldn't have been nicer or more responsive!! The property was just lovely!! It is so comfortable and the house and garden have such a wonderful layout... we all loved it from the moment we arrived and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly!! We had a chance to relax and distress in the peace and tranquility of the area and the pool was absolutely fabulous, we practically lived in it the whole weekend :) it looked right onto the ocean and we could watch kite borders, para-sailors, fisherman and divers right from the comfort of the pool. Speaking of which; having the beach as your backyard was such a treat!! So peaceful and beautiful and private...we barely saw a soul on it… a neighbor or two at most the whole weekend … just wonderful! I have to add that Vanessa, the house manager was great as well! She saw to our every need quickly and efficiently. We can't wait to go back!!" Barbara F.

Nestled between the quaint towns of La Cruz De Huanacaxle and Bucerias, Casa de' Azul is the perfect getaway destination for those looking to unwind. Our vacation home sleeps 8 and has two master suites, each located on separate floors making it ideal for two couples traveling together or a small family on a getaway vacation. Our spacious beachfront Casa sits neatly on the 25 mile coastline of beautiful Banderas Bay. With it's vast coastline, and unspoiled beaches to the north, Banderas Bay is dotted with unique small towns and is the perfect area to experience the vibrant culture and unique atmosphere the NY Times Travel section dubbed the 'Mexican Riviera.'

Traveling north-west along the beach and you'll arrive in La Cruz where you can shop the outdoor fish and farmers markets or have a drink and watch the sailboats come and go in the Marina. Located south of Casa de' Azul is the town of Bucerias. Bubbling with restaurants and boutiques, Bucerias (Population roughly 4000) is a fantastic place to eat Mexican Haute Cuisine or grab a couple of the world's best, hand made tacos at Tacos Linda.

We recommend renting a car, and it's easiest to pick one up at the Puerto Vallarta airport when you arrive. We are located across Banderas Bay, 20 miles from Puerto Vallarta. Having a car gives you the flexibility to make the quick trip up to Sayulita, famous for it's surf break and handcrafted gift shops or head to Punta de Mita to snorkel, sit at an ocean front palapa with your favorite beverage or charter a deep sea fishing boat. Above all else, we offer a beautiful home that's peaceful and serene. It's location allows you to decide how you want your vacation to be. Both north and south of Puerto Vallarta, you will find some of the most spectacular scenery in all of Mexico. Fire up the BBQ and grill fresh fish, lay around our pool at night and look at the lights of Puerto Vallarta twinkle off the bay or head into Bucerias and hear any number of great local musicians while eating dinner in the beautiful atmosphere of western Mexico.

Casa de' Azul, a three-story, four-bedroom, 3.5-bath, luxury, beachfront home. This beautiful home has two master suites with king sized beds and private bathrooms. It has two bedrooms on the second floor, one bedroom with a queen bed, and the second bedroom with two twin beds. Casa de' Azul can accommodate 8 people and is available for a four night minimum stay.

Casa de' Azul, is located on the north shore of the Mexican Riviera a short 20 minutes from the Puerto Vallarta airport via Federal Highway # 200.

Our property manage will greet you when you arrive.

Additional Reviews:

'A great place to relax on the Mexican coast! We just returned from our stay at Amanda and Bob's private ocean front home, and we recommend it highly. The hosts responded promptly and making the reservation was easy. Vanessa met us on arrival and make sure we were all set. This lovely home could accommodate several couples in comfort, but with just two of us, the ground floor had everything we needed. We like to cook most of our meals for health reasons, and we found the kitchen fully equipped with gas range and all the pots, plates and utensils you could want. The Mega market just 10 minutes away had a great selection of ingredients. Except for the occasional gardener who comes to trim the plants, the only sound you will hear round the clock is the wonderful surf. No noise from neighbors. The weather was just perfect, but if we felt at all warm, a dip in the pool awaited. We had some great long walks on the beach - just turned left from the back yard and in 45 minutes on foot we reached Bucerias. (recommended there: Rosa Restaurante Mexicana) If you're looking for some laid-back time in the PV area, we don't think you can do better than Amanda and Bob's place.' customer from 2014

'Great House! And Amanda and Bob were super easy to deal with. Top notch all around.' customer from 2013

'This is such a great find! This house was perfect four our Thanksgiving group of four young couples (each with a baby/toddler). Spacious, comfortable, awesome pool, right on the beach. The neighbors are friendly, to boot! (The house is a row house, but you definitely feel like you are in your own private beachfront estate.) The beach is quite rocky, so while it's fun for rock hunting, catching sunrises, birdwatching, and digging in the sand, for a more swimmable beach (especially with little ones), just walk a couple hundreds yards down the beach, still within eyeshot of the house. Amanda was super-accommodating about our last minute stay, too. Great hosts overall.' Customer 2013

What an amazing rental! Very private and tons of space. Property and pool are very well maintained. The property manager, Vanessa, is very helpful and available. Location is perfect for a secluded beach vacation. Hope to be back again soon!

Great house and great privacy!

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at Amanda's home! It met all of our needs. We prefer quiet, simple yet nice, and privacy and that's what we got. Vanessa was amazing at responding to the couple of things that came up the first couple days of our stay. Thank you Vanessa! Probably the only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is that the beach out front is a bit rocky, yet we managed by walking a few hundred feet towards Bucerias to get to some sand, and it would have been great to have a dishwasher. Other than that, truly a gem. Thank you!

We really liked the pool and gardens.

Venessa was wonderful, and really enjoyed our home cooked food.

The only thing our stay was too short.

Very enjoyable stay at Casa de Azul

  • 4 of 5

My friends and I enjoyed our stay at your beautiful home. Everything went well during our stay.

The only negative thing I would mention is that the area for parking is quite crowded. It was necessary to back the van, that we used, all the way to the beginning of the drive way to get out each time. I don't think there is much that can be done for it though. I would definitely consider staying there again in the future. Gordon Croft

LOOOOOOVE Bucerias

  • 4 of 5

WE Stayed in the house during December of 2016. IT WAS SOOOOO WONDERFUL! Spacious - plenty of bathrooms - the apartment on second floor - is just beautiful (Stairs are risky if you are really sleepy though! lol) Private pool - Privacy and alone time is definitely what I got - I mean lets face it - thats what we all mostly go on vacation for... isnt it? Access to everything just a call away - if you can find the numbers. Recommend pacific paddle for paddle boards and the guy that does the horse rides on the beach passes on the beach frequently. the gentleman that passes on the beach selling breads... too expensive breads are dry... Those are just side notes. Anyway - back to the property... Beautiful house - and lawn and pool. The beach is... more of a rocky area .. we got water shoes and explored when the tide would go down - and sandy beaches are a walk away - still definitely worth it tho! The property manager was very nice - however promises kind of went unkept with additional requests.. and lastly - no cable for the whole stay - which I didnt care - I wasnt there to watch tv.. and no tvs in the rooms was another thing - but other then that - impeccable!!!!

Description of house is spot on!

  • 5 of 5

The photos we saw online were exactly what we arrived to. The only thing that was different, was the second master (upstairs) is HUGE! It's like it's own little apartment, minus the kitchen. The photos online don't do it justice! This location is private, safe and a quick drive into town and the Mega grocery store. You are in between La Cruz and Bucerias, so choosing a beach day at either location was super easy. We had 4 adults and two 3 1/2 year olds on this trip. There was ample space for everyone to play, read, swim or just lounge. The kitchen was fully equipped for us to make breakfast/lunch/dinner and enjoy meals outside on the patio, or inside at the dining room table that seats six. Vanessa (house manager) was incredibly helpful and arranged a chef to prepare our dinner upon arrival, which was so nice to have after a long day of travel.

We will definitely be booking this location again...started looking at flights the minute we returned home!
