Our house is located on the bay Between the town of Bucerias and the quaint village of La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, approximately 15 minutes north of the Puerto Vallarta Airport.

This lovely home has marble floors throughout.  The dinning area has table and chairs for six and a bar/counter near the sink for snacks and beverages.  The adjoining large living room opens onto the deck with a view of the pool and ocean beyond.  The master suite, with king size bed, includes a bathroom with an extra large tile tub with shower and double sink vanity and opens onto the deck with the same fantastic view.

The second bedroom has a queen size bed and a full size bed, and it has an air conditioner.  The main bathroom has a roomy tile shower and single sink vanity.  The large, open kitchen is fully equipped.  The entrance yard is walled and gated, with room for parking, and a cool green lawn with banana trees, and flowering plants.  The pool yard has a terraced lawn with tropical plants, patio furniture for use on the deck or lawn, and access to the waters edge.

Beachside restaurants and mini-markets are within a short walk from the house.  Activities include fishing, swimming, snorkeling and other water sports.  Golf and tennis is available nearby at Los Flamingos and there is a new Jack Nicklaus designed golf course at Punta de Mita.

The home is absolutely wonderful.  We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and could not have asked anything more.  The atmosphere is one of total relaxation.  We definitely would return and most likely will plan another visit for next year.

We had a great time.  We loved the house and the pool.  A great place to just sit back & relax.  The Crews Quarters has the best ribs anywhere.

A perfect stop for those tired of the frantic pace in P.V.  We were truly able to relax & not feel compelled to do anything!

The most relaxing vacation we've ever had.  We loved the thunderstorms each evening -it was like having our own fireworks display at your back door.  We love the casa & hope to come back every other year.

After 30 years of international holidays this was the place we would return to.  Relaxing, visually beautiful and convenient in all respects.  Just like home except for the view and no TV, phone, e-mail and the other hassles!!  A great refresher!
