Go to sleep and wake up to the sound of the ocean. From our home you can do everything, or nothing at all. Our home sits above the beautiful La Cruz Marina, close to the beach, restaurants, and family-friendly activities. Our home is wonderful for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with kids).
The house is like a work of art with classic Mexican architecture. The 2 matching studio suites (Star Suite & Joy Suite) & separate laundry room are on the 2nd floor and each has their own individual veranda which opens to the ocean and beautifully landscaped back yard of beautifully blooming buganvilias, papaya, banana & palm trees. This is your own tropical paradise. Guests share the 3rd floor roof top area with gentle ocean breezes and AMAZING ocean views looking south across the bay to the mountain backdrop of Puerto Vallarta by day and lights of Vallarta by night. You may even be fortunate enough to watch whales and dolphins playing in the bay from your own veranda. 360 degree views from 3rd floor provide sunrise and sunset views of bay and mountains. Guests have access to the patio/pool area complete with an outdoor grill which is perfect for grilling a local favorite marinated meat called aracherra (purchased from the local market) or fresh fish from the nearby fish market. Spend a few hours listening to the ocean in a hammock beneath one of the 3 palapas on the property. This is paradise!
Each studio suite is complete with a queen bed and 2 couches that convert into single beds, and a kitchen area with refrigerator, coffee, microwave and eating area. Rent only one suite, or renting both suites would be be ideal for multiple couples traveling together or for a family with more than 4 members. There is a pass-through door between the suites which may be locked or unlocked if renting both suites. Access to the pool area is from each individual suite.
Not familiar with La Cruz de Huanacaxtle? This is still a small fishing village located on the North Shore of Banderas Bay midway between the Puerto Vallarta airport and Punta Mita in beautiful Riviera Nayarit. There is a fish market located within easy walking distance from which you can purchase fresh fish caught the night before. You will find a selection that includes mahi-mahi, yellow-fin tuna, red snapper, swordfish, shrimp as well as many other varieties which you can bring home and grill on your outdoor grill.
The La Cruz area is rife with excellent live music which varies from classic rock & roll, to Flamenco to jazz standards sung by Armi Grano and a 3 piece jazz combo, or Bryan Savage, a Grammy Award winning saxaphone & flute player who winters in La Cruz. If you want to take a day trip to the well-known surfing/beach town of Sayulita, it is 20-30 minutes by car or you can catch a bus. Bus service is excellent throughout the entire Banderas Bay, so renting a car is not necessary.
There are very few areas in the world where you can leave your doors and windows open and enjoy an ideal winter climate and no bugs! We can go on and on, but you need to discover La Cruz for yourself, and there is no better base-camp than the Star Suite and/or Joy Suite in our beautiful Mexican Villa!
