4 Bed Beachfront home fully equipped - private infinity pool
About Property Manager
We have 3 children and have owned the property since our eldest was 4yrs old - our twins, first visited at 3 months old! It is our relaxing getaway with a fabulous view and the proximity to the beach for the kids. We live in California and love our holidays in Mexico.
Property Manager purchased this Townhouse in 2004
Why Property Manager chose La Cruz de Huanacaxtle
We first visited Punta Esmeralda when it was at the planning stages. We purchased one of the first homes in the complex. We were drawn to the amazing view of the bay and surrounding area. Coral 7 was the only one we were interested in as it is at the center of the complex, has its own ground level entrance and has unobstructed views in all directions. We decided to furnish and equip the property to a very high standard so that when we or visitors were there, everything was available. We only rent it out for a maximum of 10 weeks per year to maintain that high standard.
What makes this Townhouse unique
Unobstructed panoramic view of Bay of Banderas and Sierra Madre mountains. Large balcony area for relaxing and dining along with infinity pool for cooling off.
Max guests:8 (sleeps up to 4 adults)
1 week minimum rental period
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date.
Great property for families
Amazing view, Great for families
The condo is located in the clean and quiet complex of Punta Esmeralda. We had a family of 8 and there was tons of room for everyone. The owners and maintenance were very responsive and easy to deal with. The grounds of the complex were very well maintained and we enjoyed many of the pools available. A great place for a morning beach walk! The condo itself was fairly well maintained, stocked with everything needed including sand toys for kids. The living room opening up into the large patio area is absolutely amazing. The owner informed us the dishwasher was not working but we did not seem to mind washing dishing looking at that view! There is a restaurant in the complex but if you are looking to get out renting a vehicle is highly recommended. The main highway takes you easily to places like Bucerias (the Mega is great for everything you need), Sayulita, La Cruz. Everything you need including good restaurants are a short (10-15 minute) drive away. Overall, the condo was a perfect place for a family vacation!
Location and decor is great.
We really enjoyed the condo. The owner and his agent were quite responsive. They are upgrading some of the utilities and keeping up with the maintenance.
The condo is stocked with just about everything you need for an enjoyable stay. We spent a great 13 days with our family of six and everyone really enjoyed it.
We shall return for more enjoyment.
The only issue that should be better is the water and internet service. Fiber optics were being installed in the compound while we were there, so we expect that issue will improve.
We were told, the water is well water from a well dug by the developer. The region is limestone do ground water is saturated with calcium and forms lime scale continuously. Thus, all faucets, dishwasher and laundry is affected. We got clean clothes but little to no suds in the washing machine. The dishwasher is not effective, so don’t plan to use it.
Fore warned us fore armed..... so enjoy this lovely place even if not perfect yet. There is work going on to improve all this stuff. It’s safe, quiet and easy to find. The staff are helpful and the spa was nice.
Nice place, helpful owner
We enjoyed our stay at Punta Esmeralda. The Lonergan family condo was clean, spacious and nicely appointed with modern furnishings and many amenities. John, the owner, was a kind and attentive host via phone and email. He arranged for our transport from the airport, offered good regional advice including restaurant recommendations (Masala in La Cruz and Mark's in Bucerias), and seemed genuinely concerned that we had a good trip. This was a family (eight of us) getaway for my mom's 80th birthday and the condo worked well for that. There are numerous sitting areas inside and out and all the properties feature sweeping views of Banderas Bay. The Punta E. development features attractive grounds, numerous swimming pools (one is heated), two nice tennis courts and a pleasant beach cafe for breakfast, lunch and beverages. Try the ceviche, it was delicious! A couple things to be aware of: the beach is comfortable, wide and quiet but the swimming area is very rocky. It's manageable if you're careful or wear aqua sox or water shoes. We were there during the high season – Dec. 22-29 – but the complex never felt crowded and was a nice mix of American and Mexican families. There was only two beach umbrellas and limited chairs which we felt was inadequate so we made sure to grab one early. Cabs are cheap and plentiful but if you like to get around like we do, a car rental would have been more convenient. The nearest full service market is too far to walk. All in all this was an excellent option for a larger family visit to PV.
Excellent Vacation Rental!
We stayed at the condo for 1 week in March 2016, with a party of 5. The owners were very easy to deal with and the condo and complex are excellent! Clean, spacious, outstanding views and very comfortable. The complex is immaculate, very clean, multiple beautiful swimming pools, a great poolside restaurant. The facilities at the complex are very good, including the tennis courts, spa and gym. The beach is great for walking and strolling as far as you want to go. The location is excellent for touring the surrounding area of La Cruz, Punta de Mita, Bucerias, the airport, etc. I definitely would recommend this rental to anyone.
AMAZING VACATION, GORGEOUS PROPERTY!!!
My family along with some friends rented this condo last week for 11 days and had an amazing vacation! We have been to Puerto Vallarta several times and our stay here did not disappoint! We had teens with us and a toddler and this condo and the whole condo development was perfect for us! The pools were little kid friendly and the older kids had a blast playing marco polo until the pools closed every night at 10 in the colorfully lit up beachside pool. The photos in this listing do not do justice to the Punta Esmeralda grounds and the beach. The condo is beautiful, but the pools, gorgeous lounging areas with water features and gorgeous landscaping will blow you away! The master bedrooms (along with the living room and dining room) have a view of the Puerto Vallarta bay nightscape along with the sounds of waves outside....absolutely dreamy! The older kids had a great time playing tennis with the rackets provided at the condo and our little one loved playing in the sand and building sandcastles (all toys provided!). There was a beach volleyball net set up on the beach and our older kids found some other vacationers to play with. When we needed anything, Ramon the property manager, was good at getting us what we needed and he picked us up from the airport free of charge. I spent my birthday here during our stay, and decided to indulge with the spa services at the development and had a great massage (their prices were great!). The owner was very helpful and easy to work with. We would definitely rent again! Thank you for sharing your gorgeous property with us:))
Our property is situated in the center of the Punta Esmeralda complex with panoramic views of the bay.
