My girlfriend and I stayed at Villa Santa Cruz in late July for what turned out to be one of the best weeks we've experienced in our seven year relationship. Simply put, Villa Santa Cruz and the surrounding property offer the most relaxing, romantic and gorgeous settings you can imagine: the perfect getaway just a couple hours by plane from California. The colorful and beautifully designed Villa is a welcoming space; as soon as we entered the first day, we couldn't get over the beautiful glass-tile staircase, the rustic Mexican furniture, the huge kitchen, the earthy colors and the soft breeze that seemed to be a constant presence on every floor and in every corner. Our room, Granada, was just the right size with a balcony overlooking the luxurious pool and the palm tree framed ocean in the background. The bed was huge and comfortable. It's impossible to describe in words the perfection that is waking up with the French doors wide open to allow the sound of crashing waves and a gentle breeze to flow in over your face, and then to smell the fresh coffee that is waiting for you just on the other side of the door. Matt and Jessica Canepa, the owners of Villa Santa Cruz, would prepare the most delicious breakfasts and lunches (some examples are broccoli frittada, huevos divorciados, and chicken enchiladas with salsa verde), and both of them showed such professionalism in attending our every need while giving us all the space we needed to let us feel like we were at home in the Villa. Another highlight that should not go unmentioned is the fact that at night, the black sky overflows with sparkling stars (a luxury we don't get to experience often as big city dwellers), and it was extra special to be able to gaze at the stars either from the rooftop terrace or from the perfectly-warmed jacuzzi. The same can be said about the dramatic sunsets every evening, which we also enjoyed from the stunning beach in front of the Villa or from atop the palapa on the property. Also, while being at the Villa gives you the sensation that you are far away from the rest of the world, it is easy to drive to other beaches and towns nearby if you want to explore the surrounding area. All in all, a perfect vacation that I hope to repeat and that I recommend to anyone who enjoys a relaxing and exotic beach setting and who understands the true value of genuine hospitality.
