Lovely location and helpful hosts
Very nice home in a excellent location. Very close to the town of La Cruz and within close proximity to other locations that are more popular like Bucerias. The home itself is beutiful it has its own private pool located on a very quite beach. Would recommend this place for anyone who is looking for a quiet peaceful escape.
We went to La Cruz to visit with our children & grandchildren who are living on their boat. They're at the marina, getting ready to do the Pacific Puddle Jump. They're leaving in March to cross to French Polynesia, as are a lot of the "cruisers" who spend time there. You can see the boats at anchorage from the house & the marina is a short walk down the beach.
You can't beat the location of this home on the beach. It's gated, quiet & has everything you need. There was even a little dog, Poco, who came to visit every day. He would entertain us by chasing his tail in both directions & then leave again out the door.
La Cruz looks sleepy but there are plenty of good restaurants without crowds of people & you can enjoy the beach without being hounded by vendors. It has the charm that Puerto Vallarta had 40 years ago.
We highly recommend this home.
Memorable stay at a fabulous villa on the beach!
We spent a wonderful week at this villa and enjoyed it very much. With 3 bedrooms, each with king-size beds, we had plenty of room for our 2 adult children and their spouses and our 3 1/2-year-old grandson. The location is on the beach and within very easy walking distance (on the beach) to the little town of La Cruz,. The town has a fresh fish market open 7 days each week that is supplied by local fishing boats that moor there. La Cruz has several nice restaurants offering everything from rib-eye beef tacos to gourmet meals and on Sundays there is a wonderful farmers' market on the walkways in front of the fish market, something not to be missed.
We rented a van from Gecko car rentals in Bucerias and it was put to good use driving to the Mega store in Bucerias for groceries, to downtown Puerto Vallarta, and for exploring the surrounding area. Gecko rentals is run by some very nice, and knowledgeable, folks and they will pick you up and drop you off at the airport! They also rent paddle boards and other water toys at prices much better than those found at the local resorts... we rented two boards for two days and they delivered them right to the villa.
The question with any rental rating is: Would we rent this place again? The answer to that is: Absolutely! The location and furnishings make it a very nice vacation rental for a family outing. And, Joni does an excellent job of making it very comfortable. She is incredibly responsive to any questions you might have.
Beautiful location & a very helpful owner!
My family enjoyed 5 beautiful days in La Cruz. Joni was super helpful and very quick to answer any questions via email. The house is very spacious and the private pool was a delight after a hot day at Destiladeras Beach (a must visit)---beautiful white sand and perfect waves for boogie boards.
We also enjoyed a delicious and inexpensive meal on our last night there at Tacos on the Street (also a must) and we walked around the Marina afterwards. La Cruz is a very quaint little town.
Thanks Joni!! Hope to visit again one day!!
Great Get Away
What a wonderful spot to escape winter! I have spent time in other areas around the bay and have fallen in love with La Cruz. The owners and manager are extremely prompt in answering any questions and making our stay comfortable. A beautiful location on the beach. The relaxing sound of waves. A refreshing swim in your private pool. Comfortable surroundings. We are already looking forward to next year!
