About Chuck Marso
Chuck and Jill live in a farmhouse in northern Colorado. They love the simple life - and even more, they love the simple, relaxing life in the Puerto Vallarta, Mexico area. It's a dream come true for them to have a place of their own in Mexico and they are so happy to share it with you! They are animal lovers (they have four Golden Retrievers and two cats) and love travel, reading, and a great relaxing meal with a glass or two (or three) of wine. Chuck enjoys the occasional tri-atholon and as he says, 'digging in the dirt', and Jill loves photography, daffodils, and creating all sorts of art. We hope you enjoy staying in our home as much as we do! ¡Bienvenido!
Chuck Marso purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Chuck Marso chose La Cruz de Huanacaxtle
We love Alamar! We literally looked at dozens and dozens of properties all over Banderas Bay. We had just about given up when our fabulous Realtor suggested one more property... Alamar. When we saw the property and the natural surroundings, the mountains, the mango trees, the marina, the bay... we were in love. The pools and beach and amenities are amazing. Then, when we saw the actual condo we knew we had found what we were seeking. Paradise! The mountain breeze flows through even in the deep of summer and the pools invite cunningly... and then there's the private beach with private cabanas, hammocks, palapas, delicious restaurant, friendly staff, jacuzzis, pools... pure bliss.
What makes this Condo unique
Alamar's logo is 'Different by Nature...' because the developer is a Biologist who desires to maintain the natural surroundings and incorporate them into its overall design. There is a mile long hiking/walking trail through the lush hillside on site with plans for more. Under-cover parking, weight/work out room, community center, proximity to the Marina and the famous La Cruz Market and an exclusive, private beach. No other resort has that! Our home is on the 8th floor where the view is so stunning it leaves you breathless. The furnishings are luxurious and comfortable. It truly is home in Paradise!

A little bit of paradise
My husband and I stayed here for 2 weeks and it was amazing. The condo had everything we needed and more. We were happy to leave 2 chairs and an umbrella behind for the next lucky people who stay here. The view is amazing as were the 2 pools and the beach, we hated to leave.
Nancy was very helpful and a wealth of knowledge. The people, the food the beaches were great. You cannot miss the Sunday market at the marina---you have to go to the food vendor area and taste the local food. We rented a Rav 4 (form Gecko's) so we could explore and found a private beach (Lugar Beach) and we went during the week and had the whole area to ourselves. Bucerias was fun as was Punta Mita and Sayulita. Went on the Ally Cat Snorkeling tour and saw so many whales as well as being with an amazing crew.
Thank you both for renting to us and we hope to return in the future as I cannot say enough about this area---retirement idea comes to mind.

Absolutely wonderful week!
We absolutely loved our stay at Chuck and Jill's beautiful home in La Cruz. The view from the patio was amazing. The furnishing and decor were just perfect. We never did get the TV to work beyond one sports station but didn't come all the way to Mexico to watch TV ;)
The property includes 2 pools, one with an infinity pool and a view out to the ocean, the other with the added bonus of a private beach. We also had easy access to a gym but I must admit, we never used it. The walk up and down the property, to the beach, and into town provided all of the exercise we needed ;)
La Cruz is a nice area with friendly locals and expats, good food, beautiful marina, and a fabulous market. (The fish market every day converts to a huge Sunday market with artisan crafts, street food, jewelry, live music, clothing, etc.)
I love to cook, so a vacation without a kitchen is no vacation for me. The condo includes a great kitchen with all of the necessities. Combine that with the fresh fish market, the fruit and vegetable market just down the hill from the property, and a patio with a grill and an amazing view - I was in Heaven.
La Cruz is a great jumping off point for so many things to see and do around Riviera Nayarit. We enjoyed a day with Vallarta Adventures, Puerto Vallarta's El Malecon, the La Cruz Sunday market, Bucerias, Punta de Mita, and many hours relaxing by the beach and the pool.
We did not rent a car and found we didn't need it. Taxis are easily secured and inexpensive. The real bargain though are the buses that come in all shapes and sizes and provide an opportunity to get to know some of the locals that call La Cruz home. (Example - a bus ride from La Cruz to Puerto Vallarta - a 45 mins ride - cost just over $1 USD per person!)
Can't wait to return!
Luxury living indeed!
What an amazing place, would highly recommend, couldn't have been happier, great communication, beautiful apartment, very high class!
Fabulous amenities and location!
Our family of four spent a wonderful week at this lovely condo. The infinity pool is spectacular and overlooks Banderas Bay--so lovely! And I'm not an early riser, but I woke up every morning to watch the sun rise over the Sierra Madre mountains and the bay. What a gorgeous sight. The condo is perfectly located, too. You can walk to the private Beach Club (loved the pool and cabanas), to a nearby hotel for dinner (great pizza and cocktails!), and even to the seafood market and many other restaurants. Easy cab ride to supermarkets, gorgeous beaches, multiple restaurants.
And one of the best parts: the condo was wonderfully stocked. Not just linens, towels, etc., but the fridge was stocked with essentials (even coffee, tea and beer), the freezer with some welcome alcohol for cocktails, and the bathrooms all had shampoo, lotions, sunblock, etc. Made life so easy! Being able to wash and dry clothes was great, and we grilled on the patio, enjoying the view, more than once. My son and daughter loved the gym downstairs and worked out every day. I just relaxed with a book--so peaceful!
This is a great area, a little away from all the tourist craziness, but easy to get there if you want to do so. We hired a car, but you honestly don't need to do so. The security guards will call up a cab for you in minutes and they are cheap. We felt very safe the entire time and found getting around very easy. Great folder of things to do at the condo, too. Thanks so much to Roberto, who was very responsive, and to the owners for one of the best vacations! Go there: you'll love it!
Fantastic views and location, loved our stay
Chuck and Jill's condo was perfect for us. The views are fantastic and we made great use of the balcony and grill. We appreciated the extras in the kitchen like condiments and spices, not to mention the liquor cabinet. Like previous guests, we also left something behind, and it was nice to have some variety. We rented a car, so the secure parking and location were ideal. Both pools are awesome, and it was nice to be able to walk down into town. Chuck and Jill recommended Tacos on the Street in La Cruz and it was delicious. And the fresh fish (and other goods) at the Sunday market in La Cruz should not be missed. We hope to be back!
Great Place, with everything you need. Awesome location
If you haven't explored the area North of PV, you need to start googling. This area is not a reflection of what you see and feel in PV. The area is incredible, and the further north you go, the more amazing it gets. The trinkets and trash you buy are replaced by more hand crafts. The pushy vendors of PV are replaced by a wonderful people who just want to make a living, with less pressure. The landscape starts to resemble Hawaii the further north you go, with bigger waves and small towns lend themselves to great food and good times.
The condo could not be located better. You have the ability to go to Punta Mita in 10 minutes. Sayulita in 12 minutes, (if you drive the same speed as most do here) More towns north of Sayulita . If you don't know Sayulita, google it....I have second thoughts about promoting it , in hopes it stays exactly the way it is!!! Rent a car. Don't listen to crazies who tell you not to drive here. The car gives you ultimate freedom to drive anywhere at a whim. Rent from Gecko.
About the condo there isn't much to say except that this condo is beautiful. Great view, good security, great beds.....all was perfect. We cooked meals a lot, and then went for nice dinners. Really nice restaurant in La Cruz. Bucerious also has some nice places to eat. Bucerious is nicer than PV too. 10 minutes from Condo. The Mega Store the has everything you need for groceries, at great prices. Great pool at the building and also at the beach. There is a huge gorgeous long beach West of the condo, towards Punta Mita, called Disilerados. Extremely nice beach to get the best sunset shots with Marietta Islands in view.
One thing is wasn't totally sure about was the distance to the beach, but once you are there, you realize just how close you really are. the walk to the beach is less than 5 minutes, once you find the shortest route on foot.
I have nothing bad to say about the place. Very comfortable. Chuck was very timely in his responses and Sally as well.
Great place, great people. Wonderful holiday. :)
would recommend to anybody, but again, most important for a trip to this area...be willing and courageous enough to rent a car. It will change your vacation dramatically.

Near the Marina and close to world class Golf clubs.
