Vacation Rental Description
In the quaint little fishing village of La Cruz de Huanacaxtle with cobblestone streets and a new marina only half an hour from Puerto Vallarta, you will experience The Jewel of Paradise.
Just in front of the new La Cruz Marina your special retreat, Casa La Joya (The Jewel) awaits. Crafted with quality materials by local artisans, our personal residence with a 1-bedroom rental casita above is an oasis of tranquility just waiting for you to relax and enjoy your vacation.
From the upstairs covered patio you can watch the sailboats heading to and from the marina, while you sit back and experience the cool, ocean breezes. The infinity pool with its own waterfall invites you to submerge yourself while watching the marina activities, and beyond the marina you can see whales, dolphins, sea turtles and schools of fish frolic in the bay. Early morning and late afternoon, you can watch the local fishermen cast their nets in hopes of landing their catch of the day. Next to the pool there is a gas BBQ, so you can cook your own catch of the day while watching the sun’s rays play on the water.
Casita La Joya is located in a separate, totally private area of the property. Up a spiral staircase your palapa roofed (thatched palm leaves) casita awaits. There you will have all the amenities of home from your fully complete kitchen, TV, DVD/VCR and Sky Satellite with American and Canadian TV channels, to the queen bed in the bedroom, perfectly decorated to make you feel at home. The bathroom boasts a jacuzzi tub for two overlooking the harbor and with twinkling stars above. Outside, the private garden topped by a beautiful African tulip tree with huge orange flowers boasts a gas BBQ, for private, romantic dinners on your own patio.
After that you may want to stroll the beach from the marina to look for seashells or just to sunbathe. Try out the Yacht Club Restaurant overlooking the sea or stroll the malecon (boardwalk) of the new marina where you can rent a boat to take you fishing or snorkeling or whale watching. Walk a little farther into the town of La Cruz and you will find everything from world class restaurants to little funky spots where you can listen to every kind of music from rock to jazz to mariachi. You can dance the night away at Anna Banana's or Philo's.
Whatever your dreams of the perfect vacation, you can find it here. Have you always wanted to experience breaching whales, so close that you can see them eye to eye? How about brilliantly colored tropical fish enveloping you while eating right from your hand? Perhaps you dream of hauling in a giant sailfish or marlin, being in the center of a group of dancing dolphins, or watching giant manta rays glide through the water beneath your kayak. Maybe you want to ride horses on the beach, try your bargaining skills in a Mexican market, leap through the skies on a canopy tour, build some sandcastles or just stroll hand in hand on the beach. Riviera Nayarit is the place for you to experience all your dreams.
However you choose to spend your time, you will find that the charm and soothing lifestyle of La Cruz starts to mellow you out. Soon you will find yourself falling in love with your own little treasure in Paradise. Before you leave, you will be planning your next getaway, and sooner than you had imagined.
So, make your reservation today . . . in the Jewel of Paradise, Casita La Joya! And if you need to rent an entire house, ask about Casa La Joya, our 2-bedroom, 2-bath personal residence.
