Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)
We have been all around Mexico and decided the Puerto Vallarta/Riviera Nayarit area was the best and has the most to offer. Weather-wise It's always great. It's the same latitude as Hawaii but a lot easier to get to!
Joni purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Joni chose La Puntilla
We originally purchased in 2002 and the rentals were so popular that we purchased 3 more units (ask us about those too). We love the fact that we are only a short walk away from a fun authentic Mexican town, Yet only an easy drive or bus ride away from other fun towns around the Bay. In 2008 a new marina was built in town and this has added a lot of new things to the town, yet it still maintains it's original charm.
What makes this Villa unique
We love having our own private pool and yard and being right on the beach. The community we are in is safe and secure and has only 19 homes. Easy 10 minute walk by beach to downtown La Cruz. Note: Every owner on Homeaway can set up their own terms. A big benefit that not many offer: Our payment terms are flexible so contact owner if you need terms. Currently it's set up for 100% on booking but that can be modified if you need. Also, we do not require a damage large deposit paid up front like many other owners do. Instead we just ask for a credit card on file and it would only be charged if we both agree that it's fair. We include your own private Concierge (just for our houses) if you need it. They can help with things such as airport pickup, tours, massages and more if you're interested in our services. This is charged separately based on what you sign up for (if any).
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Quite, private, beautiful and very comfortable house
Everything was as advertised. The house is extremely comfortable and has a fully furnished kitchen, covering every need. The hosts, Reid and Jenna were most gracious and helpful. We really have nothing negative to say. The town, La Cruz, is a short walk away through the beach. It has some simple restaurants and is not sophisticated. It was a wonderful fish market to buy the freshest fish every day. All in all, a wonderful vacation.
Excellent beachfront vacation home!
We had a fabulous stay in La Cruz. Joni, Reid and Jenna were wonderful beginning with the booking process through check out - they made the process seamless. And the beachfront location is stunning. We had a massage out on the patio overlooking the ocean that they organized for us one day while we were there, which we highly recommend. The location is peaceful; a little bit away from the busier areas of Banderas Bay, but close enough to easily get to Bucerias and PV. We definitely recommend a vacation at this beautiful property!
One of our best vacations!!!
We had an amazing time in La Cruz staying at Joni's beachfront villa. Working with Jenna and Reid made the vacation that much amazing. Everything was set up ahead of time with a detailed welcome packet, list of restaurants that they recommend, spots not to miss, etc. Their organization was first class. Every question was answered promptly and completely. The villa was very clean, airy and super comfortable. Having the pool made for a lot of family fun. It's a very private community and peaceful surroundings. I highly recommend staying here on your next vacation, you'll be very well taken care of and the area is just beautiful and you can just feel the authenticity. Five stars for sure!
La Cruz: Beautiful place Beautiful home
From the moment you open the front door and look straight through to the beautiful pool followed by the glistening ocean your first words will either be OMG or Wow! This gated enclave of beautiful homes has a location that is unparalleled. Lush vegetation abounds, the view goes on forever and it is an easy beach walk to the charming town of La Cruz which offers many wonderful little restaurants, bars and live entertainment. From delightful street restaurants run by hard working Mexican families to fancier gourmet restaurants the town has it all. The artisan and organic market each Sunday is the perfect place to spend a few hours eating, enjoying live entertainment and admiring an abundance of beautiful hand crafted items. The home itself offers a spacious and comfortable retreat and is completely outfitted for all your needs. Jenna and Reid were able to provide contacts for amazing on site massages, transportation contacts and many suggestions for activities and restaurants available in the surrounding areas. It was wonderful to have an airport pick up all arranged and our fridge was freshly stocked with the items we were able to pre order. The neighbours were friendly and welcoming , the pool and grounds constantly attended to. Really just like heaven on earth!
