Property features

Who we are

  1. Joe 65 Italian and Judy 64 American have lived in Mexico for the past 20 years. We lived internationally for many years and enjoyed our travels through Europe, the Middle East, Thailand and Indonesia. We came to Mexico for a three month visit and never left. Joe retired in 2004 from the oil industry and Judy retired in 2007 after selling her Property Management business. We both enjoy golf, sailing and working with our community. Joe enjoys fishing and sports and I enjoy Yoga and reading. We both love travel and do so every chance we get. These past few years we have enjoyed exploring Mexico and all its fascinating hidden treasures and history. We still have many places in the world we would like to discover and believe home exchange is a great way to be able to do that. We have experienced two exchanges and both were very enjoyable. We have one very independent and loving cat named Guido and a Lab by the name of Miss Bay. They love our guest but will only visit when asked.

Your neighbourhood

Quinta Dana Maria and Clara's Studio is in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, the location of Mexico's World Class Marina. We are located 23 miles north of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico's International Airport(PVR)is on the Bay of Banderas. The town has approximately 4,000 people, comprised mostly of fisherman and their families. It is 16 Sq blocks, making it impossible to get lost and very possible to get to know the community of locals and expats. We are 2 blocks from our beach and a short 10 minute bus ride to some of the most picturesque beaches in the Bay with great boogie boarding, wind surfing and kite boarding. Quinta Dana Maria and Clara's Studio is a short walk to the fish market, 2 blocks to our wonderful street Tacos, a short walk to our beautiful Marina. We have a Sunday's Farmers Market held at the Marina, featuring all home made items, organic foods and local music. There are many wonderful local and international restaurants, Philo's,(one of the best music studios' in the Bay), and local tiendas (small grocery stores) where you can buy fresh produce, fruit, farm fresh eggs all the basics you may need, spirits and of course ice cold cervezas. Public transportation an easy 4 blocks and you can get anywhere you want to go from this pick-up point. There are quite a few towns scattered in and around the Bay which all have their own unique charm. We have 7 golf courses, countless fishing expeditions, marine life and whale watching, jungle tours, canopy tours for the adventuresome, and world class shopping and galleries in La Cruz, Bucerias and Puerto Vallarta for your enjoyment. Guadalajara is a 4 hour car drive on good roads or an easy bus trip for a few days of adventure.
