“Beautiful view to wake up to!”

Reviewed 2 Jan 2017

This is a great location to view the beach, mountains, sailboats, marina. Also a simple walk into town or the marina. Folks are very nice and helpful here and most speak English. Steve the owner is very nice and helpful. If you need him he is there for you. We appreciate his hospitality. No air conditioning though, so if you have trouble with heat it may be a problem. While we were there we were comfortable because the house has nice breeze flowing through. Also an easy walk to where the taxis are. Really nice yard with view to relax in.

Owner's reply: The house does has AC. I discovered after Susan left the unit in the master bedroom was not working. Susan if you would have said something to me I would have called the repair man.

“A wonderful get away”

Reviewed 25 Oct 2016

This was the third opportunity we have had to stay at Steve's two bedroom house. We keep returning because for many reasons but the main being he has accepted our Golden Retriever. We can walk from the property onto the beach and within minutes you are at the marina with several restaurants and local fish market. Even though Steve lives upstairs, we rarely see him but we know he is there if you need him. The area is quiet and if you enjoy reading a good book next to your private pool then this is the place for you. Hope to see you again next year Steve.

Once my dog get lost for a day, and I was really worried, and Steven and the gardener were very helpful, fortunately my dog come back by itself, I really appreciate all the help that I receive for all there in La Cruz.

We were not able to rent this location due to unavailability but we passed by every day. The location is simply superb, right on the beach and within a quick walk to the marina (with daily fresh fish and seafood) as well as two local eateries with great reps.

“Another great time!”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2012

We came back to La Cruz and stayed at Steve's beautiful villa again. As always he is a very gracious host. Had a wonderful time and he has put up a very nice palapa by the pool. Our friends came the 2nd week we were there and they loved it as well. I would highly recommend this villa. Thanks again Steve

“Great home in La Cruz”

Reviewed 17 Jan 2012

This house isactually better than it appears in the pictures. Very spacious living, dining, kitchen area. Large master bedroom and a regular size 2nd bedroom. The grounds are a huge bonus. All types of flowers, cactus, and shrubs blooming in the tiered garden leading down to the beach from the pool, hot tub area. Everything is well maintained by regular gardeners, pool guys, and maid service. Steve, the owner, is super helpful. He's there if you need him and not there if you don't. At 7:00 a.m. every morning there is a spectacular sunrise greeting you over Banderas Bay. All you have to do is roll over in bed to take it all in. Leave the screen door closed and the deck door open and you have wave sounds to fall asleep to. The view from the hot tub, pool and decks is Banderas Bay stretched out in front of you. La Cruz itself is a great small town with some excellent food and friendly folk. There are a lot worse ways to spend your time than sitting on the deck of this house, soaking up the sun and the view with a Margarita in hand.

“Beautiful Villa”

Reviewed 20 Jul 2011

My husband and I stayed here July 11th-17th. We had a fabulous time. Steve is a very gracious host and he has a beautiful place. Found a new place to eat in town Huanacaxtle, everyone was very friendly and the food is not only fantastic but very reasonable. The villa is very clean and has a great location. I would recommend this place to everyone! The weather was great. We will be back to see Steve and his dog Bobby who was very cute and friendly.

“Private Paradise”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2011

A wonderful place to feel like at home and enjoy wonderful weather and friendly people. Everything was clean and working. We love traveling and feel at home at the same time, and that's what we got. Even Tito our dog had a great time.
