Jardin del Mar is the perfect location for several couples, family get-togethers and group retreats. It's an ideal vacation destination for large groups, because each couple or small family has private space(s) but also ample shared outdoor spaces to socialize with the other members of the group. (Sleeps 20 in 6 units)
(The estate is spread out over a totally enclosed half acre and is made up of apartment-like guest suites... message me for details and view the labeled photo of the property.)
Jardin del Mar was lovingly built over a 20-year period by a retired couple with their large extended family in mind. Jardin is authentically and beautifully Mexican... full of mosaics, tiles and stunning historical artifacts from all across the country. It truly is an "experience" and not just a beach house... You have to see it to believe it!
Located away from Vallarta's bustle and Nuevo's crowds, this hidden oasis is on the North Shore of the bay on the outskirts of La Cruz de Huanacaxtle...a small village known for friendly locals, delicious restaurants, live music and its fresh fish and farmer markets.
You and your guests will have access to the entire property...and you'll be the only guests staying here, even if you don't require all of the guest suites. Jardin comes with a saltwater pool, pool floaties, lounge chairs, umbrellas, hammocks, sea kayaks, outdoor shower, private beach access, barbecue/outdoor kitchen, rooftop deck, seating areas, courtyards, gardens, etc.

My wife and I live onsite (in a separate house at the rear of the property)... We mostly stay indoors and keep to ourselves, but we're always available to call you a taxi, give tips and directions, help with the language, recommend restaurants, outings, etc. We're really laid back and just want you to enjoy yourselves... We don't even care if you play loud music and have yourselves a pool party!!
We have two dogs who live with us (a senior black lab and an 8-year old labradoodle.) They love people and they love to sleep all day. We promise to keep them out of your hair...
About us: My wife and I (a couple 30-somethings) decided that life is too short to waste it in rainy traffic, and working 60 hours per week, so we sold off our house, cars, and 95% of our possessions...bought a mini van, packed up our pup and drove 2,800 miles from Seattle to La Cruz, Nayarit in May of 2016 (after vacationing here several years in a row and falling in love with the area.) Best decisions of our lives! We now manage the Jardin del Mar Estate and live onsite full-time with our labradoodle, Bloo.
(For other hosts: As property managers who run a 6-unit hotel, we know what being a respectful guest means and we'll always treat your home like we would our own. We're laid back, friendly, tidy and low-maintenance.)
