Simple pleasures, casual elegance, barefoot luxury, private spaces. Old world charm, thoughtful amenities, affordable luxury. Tranquility, serenity and peacefulness to refresh and recharge your spirit. A perfect spot to indulge in the ultimate of luxuries where time simply becomes unimportant. Now that’s vacation at Simply Baku!
Now offering brand new, private guesthouse located directly on the beach on the Riviera Nayarit coastline --- away from the hustle bustle of heavily populated tourist areas. In total, Simply Baku offers six spectacular private, guesthouses ideal for 2 persons each, or travel with friends or family for ideal accommodations up to 8 persons. The beach house features king size bed, double vanities and private dressing area, fully equipped kitchen, spacious bathrooms, lovely living rooms, palapa covered terrazas and incredible views – all on a quiet beach in the quaint fishing village of La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, just north of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. La Cruz is also the home of the new world-class Riviera Nayarit Marina.
Early morning sunrises paint the skies over the majestic Sierra Madre mountains while incredible sunsets wash the foothills behind us at dusk. Across the bay, Puerto Vallarta’s lights twinkle like glistening gems in the clear night skies, whales play in the warm ocean waters, sailboats snuggle into La Cruz’s calm harbor, fishermen arrive safely back at port with their fresh catch of the day. Walk out your door barefoot with your morning coffee and put your feet in the water’s edge. Catch a day of sun by the pool amidst tropical gardens or enjoy a restful siesta in a shaded hammock. What could be more heavenly!
The guesthouse at Baku, which means a place of tranquility and serenity, is meticulously designed and luxuriously appointed with the simple elegance of days gone by. You’ll find many of the interior appointments hand-crafted from natural materials like pebble designs, hand painted Talavera tiles, hand hammered copper sinks, rustic stone marble from the Yucatan, bamboo crafted doors and thatched roofs from palm fronds (palapas). The mosquito netting adds a whimsical, romantic flair of days gone by. The natural beauty of the outside environment touches your inside living space with endless views of the bay, mountains, beach and gardens. You’ll find candles to create a romantic ambiance at night while you can count on all the conveniences of North American living as well – luxurious linens, hot water, electricity, flushing toilets, purified water etc.
The beach at Baku offers you a delightfully tranquil environment to get away from it all. There are no jet skis whizzing by; there are no vendors selling you their wares; there is little to no traffic except for Sundays when families often head to the beach for the day. Simply said, it is a natural, undeveloped beach with a touch of wild thrown in … a perfect spot to capture a feeling of being totally by youself and away from it all. If you value being away from it all, being a bit off the beaten path while still enjoying amenities of North American living, Simply Baku is perfect for you.
Baku is located on the north coast of Bahia de Banderas (the western hemisphere’s 2nd largest bay) in the pueblo of La Cruz de Huanacaxtle away from the hustle-bustle of the more popular international resort destination of Puerto Vallarta. The sleepy village of La Cruz is approximately 15 miles north from Puerto Vallarta’s international airport. Baku offers plenty of private spaces situated on beachfront private property away from gated condo communities and traditional resort lodgings. Proximity to the village affords you the convenience of stores, restaurants and live music entertainment. Buses and taxis, of course, are readily available when you want to explore beyond our cozy village. Baku is American owned and operated by Marianne Jacobs and Mike Loesch.
Join us at Simply Baku and you’ll be touched by the romance of living in the tropics and the enchantment of the sea while enjoying a simpler, slower-paced life in a small Mexican village. While many guests often forget what time it is and/or simply stop caring about the time, we promise … we’ll get you to the airport on time for your return flight home!

Year Purchased: 1998
About the owner: We've always wanted to live on the beach; came to Puerto Vallarta for vacation, fell in love with the people, culture & customs and began searching for property to buy. We settled on property in La Cruz in 1998 and moved here full time in February 2001. We started the guesthouse business in 2004; it just evolved and took on a life of it's own. We now expanded it 6 guesthouses.
Why the Owner Chose La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, Nayarit, Mexico:
We didn't buy a vacation rental - this is our home! We bought property and live here full time - what's not to love about living in paradise?
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Awesome sunrises, majestic mountains, the sea, the beach, incredible nighttime skies, whale watching from you house, the warmth and charm of Mexico.
