About Anne T

We rent the condo when we aren't using it. We try to make sure everything is working and tip top at condo.

Anne T purchased this condo in 2009

Why Anne T chose La Puntilla

La Cruz is a wonderful village, with lots of restaurants, live music, handicraft markets and a lovely beach. We are still close enough to go downtown about once a week to enjoy the Malecon in downtown PV.

What makes this condo unique

Penthouse has high ceilings with drop dead ocean views, huge open living space and balcony, and palapa - exclusive to your Penthouse unit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

La Cruz nd a great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 months. The weather is heaven on earth....in the winter. Sandals, shorts, and t-shirts are all that is required almost any time of the day.. The condo is spacious and with a view to die for. The veranda is large, faces, due south with a view of the bay, the town, the marina, and Puerto Vallarta, but deperately needs an umbrella for those morning breakfasts. It has a great gas BBQ as well. The locals are very friendly. As well as the gringos by the pool. Lots of restaurants around. No bank in La Cruz but there are two ATMs: one in the pharmacy on the main road and the other on Longusto just south of Enrique's. Cabs are plentiful and cheap while driving looks difficult and fast.

a wonderful experience overall and we are returning next year.

  • 4 of 5

We spent three wonderful months at Almost Heaven Penthouse in La Cruz and we have booked again for next year.

The town and the local people could not have been more friendly. We felt safe walking anywhere at anytime and all of the local people went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Unfortunately we do not speak Spanish but this did not present a problem as every person we dealt with made every attempt to speak english, however we are going learn to speak more Spanish next year before arriving.

There are lots of good restaurants and a variety of entertainment almost nightly and grocery shopping is close by.

Bucerias is only a short bus ride from the condo and is a fun experience in itself.

The view from the condo of the ocean and the Marina is outstanding.

The condo itself is in a great location and the owner Kevin is superb to deal with. His response to any questions was timely.The unit is clean well maintained as a rental unit with only a very few issues that you should expect. We expressed these with Kevin and he said he would take care of them

Over all a wonderful 3 months and cant wait to return next year. We love the condo and the town. Highly recommend this spot. Thank you Kevin

BEAUTIFUL PLACE FOR A FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The complex is clean and family-friendly and our visit was grand.

The penthouse has plenty of room. Very tidy and clean place.

5 minute walk to a clean beach excellent for kids and toddlers.

The view from the villa was spectacular with the ocean, mountains, and Puerto Vallarta in the background.

The overall amenities were perfect. The pool at the condo was serene. We could not have asked for a more private, relaxing and quiet retreat. The pool and ocean water was perfect. Comfortable temperatures and refreshing!

The condo was comfortable, nicely decorated and stocked with everything we need.

Would definetely recommend it and we will be back soon!

Very good!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week and everything was great.

The pictures are current, booking process was easy and all information provided was good.

The condo is very large, 3 bedrooms and a very large terrace overlooking the Marina, my only suggestion is to have a gas or charcoal grill instead of an electric.

Covered parking, nice pool that never was crowded and a few minutes walk to the beach, the seafood market was also great and very close, don't miss it if you are cooking.

The town is a little small and few but good selection of restaurants. The town of Bucerias is close and offers also a very good selection of restaurants, our favorite Toscana Mia.

Is a good alternative if you need 3 bedrooms.

One of a kind vacations !

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed for a month in this beautifull apartment, modern , well equipped, secure and very quiet. We really enjoyed being in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle town having the marina so close for my kids to take Sail and windsurf classes every day while i stopped by the mercado del mar to buy fresh fish ( catch of the day ) to prepare dinner ! You can also find yoga and salsa classes at the marina complex . Lots of fun !

The apartment is also very close to most of the towns nearby like Bucerias, punta de mita, Sayulita (great for surfing ,kind of a hippe town full of life ) The lovely sunsets at San Pancho and the

extremely quiet Lo de Marco.

We were all very happy for choosing this lovely place and the great moments we spent together, definately would love to go back again to this beautiful place in Mexico.

Better than advertised

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 4 weeks at "Almost Heaven" in La cruz,and the name certainly fits. I'm not sure the photos do it justice as the unit was even more spacious than we expected. All of the rooms are large, well equipped, and unlike most 'Mexican' beds, very comfortable. The unit and in fact the entire complex, is clean and very well maintained, and the folks at the pool very friendly. This is not a 'party' building, very quiet and relaxing with a great location. It is an easy stroll to the beach, the fabulous Sunday Market, the seafood market, the Marina and 8 or 10 restaurants, and yes, it is safe to walk around La Cruz after dark. We especially enjoyed Thursday jazz night at Ozzo's where the food is great, the ribs at Eva's Brickhouse, Phillo's for pizza, beer, and live music, and Frascati's for the great food & service. The condo is only 1 block to the bus stop, which for under a dollar, will take you to Puerto Vallarta, the Mega store, Bucerias, Punta de Mita, etc. etc. Taxis are also very numerous and resonable priced. I would definately recomend La Cruz and especially 'Almost Heaven' to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation. I hope we will be able to return soon. Thanks Kevin & Ana.

La Cruz is a great place to visit. Nice beach, quiet village with all services (small grocery stores and liquor, bread, meat, fish and shrimp market). Lots of bars and restaurants with live music and events. East to catch a bus to downtown Vallarta and the Malecon. Well situated as well for day trips to Sayulita, San Pancho and Punta de Mita.
