Villa Vista Royal justifies it's name as well as your hopes! The Villa has the best and the most amazing view of beautiful Banderas Bay, exciting Puerto Vallarta, the majestic mountains of the Sierra Madres and the charming fishing village La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. The incredible views from the Yoga and Observation Deck lure some guests to practice yoga here while greeting the ocean sunrise, while others like to sip wine, sitting in armchairs and watching the sunset.

Church bells ringing, roosters crowing, flying tropical birds singing...the air is fresh and aromatic........... the cool breeze flows over you.

Villa Vista Royal is located just a 10 min walk to the beach and 5 min to the down town of traditional cobble stoned Mexican village La Cruz de Huanacaxtle ( locals call it La Cruz), where you can find plenty of cozy restaurants, bars, a famous fish market, a world class marina, tennis courts and much more.

Villa Vista Royal is walled and gated for your privacy and security. Each suite/apartment has its' own security code for entry. All suites include fully furnished bedrooms, living rooms and kitchens which are fully equipped with all modern appliances and beautiful and traditionally tiled bathrooms, adjoining balconies in every apartment and a spectacular terrace in the Penthouse. The Garden and Balcony apartments have air conditioning.

The beautiful patio is lush with tropical plants, flowers, unique 100 year old cactus, a blue tiled pool sporting a waterfall and a Jacuzzi Jet for swimming.

You can relax under a Palapa in the yard and enjoy some barbecue and beer at the unique wooden Parota table by the pool.

The barbecue area includes a stove, a refrigerator, private shower and the bar area, where guests can entertain friends and family.

Water provision includes a system of sediment and charcoal filtration, UV disinfection and water softening, which makes the water safe and tasty and very good for your skin and hair.

Up two flights of steps the Penthouse has a stunning ocean view. The Penthouse is open air living in the main room and terrace with a well stocked kitchen. The view is nearly 360 degrees and flows with warmth and charm. A large bedroom with a queen size bed opens to a private balcony and private entrance to the bathroom and walk in closets.

Our Balcony apartment is traditionally Mexican styled, with beautiful view of Banderas Bay and overlooking the swimming pool and waterfall. It has a king size bed, living room area and a complete kitchen. One and half bathrooms with Mexican tile allows for privacy for guests. The Balcony apartment can also be joined to a single bed with private entrance.

The Garden apartment too has a lovely view of the Bay and adjoins a serene garden area, lined with palm and banana trees and tropical flowers. The bedroom shutters open up to the living room and the view of the Bay or can be closed for privacy. There is a king size bed in the main bedroom and an additional private single bedroom off the kitchen is ideal for an extra guest. The Garden apartment has one and half bathrooms, a nicely appointed living room and fully stocked kitchen.

The Cactus apartment is a well appointed cozy suite with a special view of one of our unique one hundred year old cactus just outside the windows. A king size bed in the bedroom, which leads to a small private balcony overlooking a natural green area and a beautifully tiled bathroom and completely stocked kitchen completes this inviting get away way for two.

There is a special possibility for rental and exclusive use of the entire villa, including four apartments, garden, swimming pool, barbecue area, Yoga Deck and all common area.

About Mayya Yeager

My name is Maya Yeager, I worked as a physician for 25 years. Since 2012 year I and my husband Ross practiced sailing in Pacific and Caribbean and have fallen in love with La Cruz - this wonderful place of eternal summer, ocean, breeze, Mexican cuisine, Mexican art and Mexican smile.

Mayya Yeager purchased this villa in 2016

Why Mayya Yeager chose La Cruz de Huanacaxtle

We believe ( and now there is a scientific evidence) that places like this - beside the ocean, with incredible ocean view, with beautiful garden, warm climate, atmosphere of peace and tranquility - enhances one's health.

And we love people, we love them to be happy and content and enjoy, absence of stress. There is a beautiful Yoga and Observation terrace on the top of the building with stunning views.

What makes this villa unique

Maya, certified ozone therapist provides ozone/oxygen water, ozonized oil, unique cosmetic masks - everything free for my guests!!

The main benefit, of course, is the wonderful ocean view, which is really unique and very good for mental health. There is a view of tropical forest also, plenty of beautiful birds flying around give you a lot of positive emotions.

Being a medical professional, I am very accurate about hygiene and cleanliness, we have excellent modern water provision, which make it absolutely safe, modern non chlorine disinfection system in the swimming pool and high level of cleanliness in every apartment, yard, garden and barbecue area. Moreover, we provide a free fruit breakfast - smoothies from local fruits, which are very good for your health also.

Enjoyable week at Villa Vista

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the balcony apartment for a week with our son & his girlfriend (rented the additional bedroom). We loved it!! The apartment is very nice & the kitchen has everything you need. Beautiful outside kitchen and pool area. This was such a great feature. We walked to the marina in the morning for fresh seafood and grilled it for lunch.

The pool is cool and refreshing. Maya is a lovely hostess.

The property is at the top of a steep hill, it was difficult for my husband to walk because he's just had a knee replacement. But for the rest of us this was no problem.

We rented a car through Gecko Car Rentals - highly recommended. We traveled up the coast as far as Chacala stopping at San Pancho and Sayulita over a period of three days - going to different towns each day. Everything is very close. It was terrific.

We visited the Sunday Market at the Marina - not to be missed!

Our favorite beach was Destiladeras - after the kids left and we moved to another property for a week we spent almost every day there. Spectacular.

Explore the town - lots of inexpensive places to buy food and some great restaurants. Music almost every night in the town.

We loved it.

Laid-back luxury

  • 5 of 5

This place has it all: beautiful design, spacious apartments with all amenities, pool and pool-side bar, roof-top terrace with w/ fantastic view over the Bay, walking distance to the restaurants and other attractions of La Cruz...and last but not least, stable, fast WI FI! This was big for me because I work remotely and Mexican WI FI has a tendency to drop frequently.

The owners, Ross & Maya, are friendly and relaxed. They take impeccable care of the place and clearly have invested a great deal of thought and love into the property.

My only complaint is that I wasn't able to stay longer!

LOVED Villa Vista Royal!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 12 days in the Penthouse and I will start by saying that while the photos on the site give a really good idea of what the place looks like, they don't do the place justice. It is way more beautiful in person!! Mayya and her husband take impeccable care of their property, it is very clean and the decor and layouts are amazing, every little detail has been thought of. The 100 year old cactus in the yard is very impressive :)The views from the penthouse and observation deck above are spectacular. The penthouse bedroom is a beautiful place to wake up with a view of the ocean and mountains and sunrise with your head still on the pillow :) Communication was great from start to finish and Mayya was always quick to answer any questions we had and was very accomodating and was there to meet us when we arrived to show us around. Mayya and her husband are very lovely, warm people and while they kept to themselves mostly unless we needed something, (their home is on the property), it was nice to run into them once in awhile and a have a chat. They are both very knowledgable about the area as well. And Mayya was more than happy to offer us fresh bananas from her garden several times! (and they were delicious, thank you ;p).

We travelled alone to Mexico and loved being alone in the penthouse, and the pool area is amazing! But we would love to come back and rent the entire villa with friends/family as it would make for a great place to have family reunion of any kind.

There is a steep hill to walk up to get to the house so I wouldn't recommend it for older people who are not in good shape.

Thanks for a wonderful stay, we will definitely be back in the future!

Great location, lovely apartments, amiable owners

  • 5 of 5

I spent a few weeks in the Balcony apartment of the villa. It was a much needed vacation and lived up to, if not exceeded, my expectations. I was cautious to book a place with very few reviews but they were all so positive that I give it a shot - and happy to have done so!

The view of the bay from my balcony was breathtaking, and I could enjoy the same view basking in the sun by the pool area. The apartment had everything one needs from kitchen knives to pots and blenders (although with the fantastic local prices in the village you won't feel the need to cook ;) The decor is local and tasteful.

The big plus of the place is that it suits eloping couples looking for privacy and tranquility just as well as groups of friends wanting to hang out and have fun. The village, located down the road, has a number of nice restaurants (La Cava was our favorite) and bars, a lovely fish market - refreshingly non-touristy, and a Sunday crafts market - more up the tourists' alley. There's a small beach about 10 min walk from the villa, also pleasantly empty.

The owners, whose house is located on the premises, are very accommodating, whether you need a fresh towel or an extra bed.

I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who has moved past hostels but doesn't want a characterless hotel.

Royal Villa = Wonderful retreat, relax in pool, blend a margarita so sip a beer and enjoy the view!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 wonderful days there over Thanksgiving with most of our family (reunion) each of us having a separate living area. You can relax in your own quiet room or sit by the pool which every spot has excellent views of the bay and marina. Easy walk to corner markets for groceries or town square or rent a car and drive to surf nearby a few miles away. Surfand paddle board rentals at WildMex are cheap and short walk across street to beach. We loved Saylulita for its charm and art, shopped in Bucerias and PV but our quiet retreat away from the hustle and bustle of PV was an oasis! Great value and we have some friends that go to La Cruz every year and will be staying there next year. Party at Anna Banana's but don't stay in hotel across the street if you want a quiet place to sleep.
