About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, sleeps 6 in beds

Wonderful authentic Mexican villa. PRIVATE Beachfront property. Private Pool, Private Yard. On the Puerto Vallarta Banderas Bay. Straight out the window see the sparkling city lights of the City of Puerto downtown Vallarta.

Concrete and Marble Construction. This villa is the ideal location for an adventurous vacation. Convenient to: - the many golf courses, - surfing, - fishing, - snorkeling, - horseback riding and more!

Swim in your private kidney-shaped pool - step 30 feet from the pool and swim in the Ocean Bay. Barbecue by the pool, or cook inside in the full size kitchen.

The ocean is out one door and the mountains are out the other. Watch or participate in the boating in the quaint marina which is steps away.

The house and carport areas are fully gated. A Chef is on call if you're interested.

You have it all in La Cruz. You have the peace and quiet of your own villa right on the ocean, yet centrally located between all the popular hot spots to visit. The Puerto Vallarta Airport is only 12 miles away. Authentic Mexican shopping/dining are steps away. You can also hit other nearby towns via a short bus or boat ride or drive. The city bus stop for all these places is just a few blocks away.

La Cruz is a great 'central' location, as it is midway between Puerto Vallarta to the south, and Punta Mita at the far end of the bay to the north (20 minutes away). Punta Mita is home to the famous Jack Nicklaus

signature designed golf course and the exclusive Four Seasons Hotel complex. Other nearby towns include Bucerias with great authentic Mexican restaurants and shopping, or Nuevo Vallarta and Marina Vallarta. Sayulita for surfing. Also enjoy the brand new multi-million dollar marina built within a stones throw of the villa. Stroll the stops or eat at the restaurant surrounded by water!

Make sure to check out the Marina's seasonal Sunday market where you'll find goods unlike any other Mexican market. This one requires the vendors to be the artisans themselves to be included. At that market you'll find organic foods, hand made wares, entertainment and much more! Runs a good portion of the year.

About Joni K

From Minnesota we love spending time in Mexico. We even made a business of it - owning 4 similar units in the area. We use a unit in high season, but that leaves 3 for you! Jenna will be your personal concierge while you're there. Reid can answer any questions and Rob oversees property maintenance.

Joni K purchased this villa in 2002

Why Joni K chose La Cruz de Huanacaxtle

The Beach is where it's at! This is a great beach location yet steps from the new La Cruz marina which has lots going for it from markets, to shops to restaurants and entertainment. Watch the boats enter the marina right in front of the house!

What makes this villa unique

Not many places can you find your own private villa with it's own private pool and yard yet also on the edge of downtown for this price!

We have our own private Concierge Team who will help you with things like: tours, massages, private cook or chef, fishing excursions, restaurant reservations, help with Spanish, babysitting and much more. They will also be your go-to with unit questions or issues you may encounter.

Perfect location, beach front and direct access, gorgeous pool, professionally maintained and perfectly clean. Reid and Joni are professional and provide excellent customer service.

Love This Place

  • 5 of 5

Dear Joni, Jenna and Reid,

First of all can’t say enough about how well we were taken care of while we were at your place in La Cruz. Jenna and Reid are wonderful hosts and rest assured Joni, your houses are in great hands with these two. They both have a great sense of humor!

We appreciated having a pick up arranged for us from the airport and the grocery delivery service. We were there for 14 days and didn’t feel a need to get any more groceries until about the 10th day. Any questions we had were answered right away by either Jenna or Reid. They also arranged a whale watching trip with Jesus which was just awesome because I got some pretty amazing pictures.

The house is exactly as shown in the pictures and was super clean when we arrived. The location of the house is perfect and on both Sundays we walked over to check out the local market which had so many beautiful things. Laying in the chairs by the pool and listening to the music for the rest of the day was perfect, we loved the pool and the yard was well maintained. The house was well appointed, with everything we could possibly need and Rob, the property manager got us hooked up to Netflix if we wanted to watch tv in the evening. He also adjusted the water pressure in the master bath shower so both showers work great.

We were told its really easy to get to Sayulita, Bucerias or Punta de Mita by bus but we were so comfortable by the pool and just kicking around La Cruz we really didn’t feel a need to.

We have been to the Caribbean side of Mexico many times and although the water there is that beautiful turquoise, the beaches in La Cruz were equally as nice to walk on and far less crowded. La Cruz has the charm that Playa del Carmen had 25 years ago but La Cruz is far less touristy, less expensive and really quaint with a relaxing pace. Greg and I were both so pleasantly surprised by how kind and friendly the locals are, everyone smiles and says hello. The short walk into town for dinner at night was a great way to wrap up each day and there are no shortage of restaurants. Must admit I think our favorite was Tacos on the Street, great food there. La Cruz is definitely a place we will be coming back to and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your house to my friends or family.

Thank you for sharing your home with us,

Tracy and Greg

Amazing Oceanfront Villa

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful spacious villa. The air conditioning in each room made it refreshing when walking into the villa after being outside in the heat. It was very nice and clean and organized I would recommend this property to anyone looking for an outstanding place to stay! My family and I look forward to stay at this villa in the future since the beach is footsteps away and the pool is great. We thank Joni for such a wonderful property!
