An oasis in a busy urban enviroment
This condo is on the 4th floor of an ocean front building with a private beach. It is surrounded by businesses, restaurants, other condo buildings located right on the Malecon (ocean front pedestrian walkway) in the south end. The location is perfect for people that want a very short walk to a great variety of restaurants and shopping in the backstreets and on the beach. With that amenity comes very busy streets and noise. Some people love that vibe. We enjoy it, some people don't. If you want a resort experience with lawns, pools and open spaces, this is not for you. Anyone that has been to PV knows what I am talking about.
Returning to the condo, the direct ocean front terrace with a large umbrella (not every unit has one) offers a very good view of the bay and the activity on the Malecon. Its location in the building is directly across from the private ocean front beach so you are not looking over a restaurant roof to see the bay. The other amenity which I really like is the roof top pool. It gets sun all day and the water temp was perfect everyday for our stay in. Dec. '19. The large pool area has been updated since our last stay in 2017 and has comfortable furniture, areas for shade, large bathrooms and best of all not crowded.
The interior of the condo appears to be well used and could benefit from some painting, furniture with better back support and perhaps some editing of the cute signs and objects that fill the spaces. The large bird cage you see in the photos of the dining area was a bit odd until I figured out that it is to block the line of sight through the condo when the front door is open, which is always is for air flow. Note there is a locking iron scroll design door for security. Functionally every works and the bathroom walk in showers (2) have exceptional water pressure and almost instant hot water. Internet connection consistent& strong, TV good. The bed was comfortable. Kitchen well appointed.
I must mention the condo has an excessive amount of live healthy plants in large pots in almost every room. If you are prone to any allergies that are mildew, mold or dusk related this might be a good fit. I am and each time I came back to the condo the symptoms occurred. Leaving the doors open and setting on the terrace helped.
Bottom line this condo is in a very well maintained older building in a great location. The staff is friendly and helpful. It is a good value for the reasonable rental fee.
Perfect for me.
Many times here. Guess I really like it.
Great location, awesome view - great value for money
Let’s see, roughly in order - easy getting there from the airport - no problem with the taxi and directions, staff were friendly so check-in was a breeze, apartment is nicely appointed, comfortable, gets a great breeze when you keep the inner door open, has an amazing view, is right off the malecón and beach, is nice-sized, beds were comfortable - just really good, then the street food was great - tacos and quesadillas a couple blocks away, loads of shops and restaurants nearby, fishing pier just a few blocks away (we caught a decent-sized Marlin!), rooftop pool was very nice - perfect temperature water, check out was similarly easy. I would recommend highly to be in the center of the old town in PV (of course if you want an isolated beach that’s something else).
Best location in Puerto Vallarta
Four of us have just returned from a week in this lovely,convenient and well equipped condo. The balcony overlooks the malecon and we spent many happy hours watching the passing parade of dogs, people and vendors. Both the building and apartment are very well maintained and the roof top pool with its marvellous views over Banderas bay, is a lovely breezy place to relax with an adult beverage! We walked to local restaurants and strolled along the malecon to the local supermarket, Lays, then caught the local bus back for 7.5 pesos each(less than 50c). I certainly recommend this condo. for anyone looking to be in the heart of the Zona Romantica.
The owners responded immediately and made the process very easy, we will certainly be booking this condo again on our next trip to P.V.
Had a great time in PV and in this wonderful condo! This building is wonderfully located in the heart of everything and is directly facing the beach. We felt like we were staying in someones home it was so nicely decorated and well maintained. The views are breathtaking and the upstairs quiet pool is really nice and quiet unlike many other buildings. The owners will also very responsive and nice to deal with.
I would recommend this wonderful condo and look forward to coming back in the future.
