About the property

Sun and Sea House is a stylish, new 2 Bed/2 Bath condo w/ocean-view terrace

Enjoy "Beach" Without "Boring"

Casa Sol y Mar (Sun and Sea House) at The Park is a 2-bed, 2-bath, 2-terrace ocean-view condo just one block from the beach in the most convenient section of the never-boring Old Town (Romantic Zone / Zona Romantica). No hills to climb!

Our end-unit condo features an owner-designed floorplan providing two master suites, if desired, windows in every room (including the bathrooms), a step-out balcony in the main master with views of the cathedral, an enlarged kitchen/family room area, and a double-size terrace off the living area.

Attention To Detail

Professionally decorated and featuring resort-quality linens, Casa Sol y Mar strives to provide guests the amenities they expect while on vacation, including beach towels, pool tools and our own pool cart for transporting everything you'll need for a rejuvenating day enjoying Old Town's largest rooftop pool. Our condo also provides three-step water filtration at the sink and refrigerator.

We also have a full-size, in-unit washer and dryer, 50-inch flat-screen TV with HDMI ports, in-unit WiFi, stainless steel appliances and granite/marble countertops with an island that seats 5. The family room includes a couch with pull-out twin-sized trundle bed for a 5th guest.

Gearing Up For The Sky Park

Guests can load up the pool cart with towels, drinks and snacks and head up one of our building's two elevators to The Sky Park. You won't be crowded on Old Town's most spacious rooftop terrace. Here you can enjoy the area's largest rooftop pool - a glorious semi-Olympic, heated, saltwater escape from stress. The Sky Park also features an outdoor grill and food prep area, dining tables, wet bar, bathrooms and outdoor showers.

There are covered lounging areas with a flat-screen television, couches and plenty of comfortable poolside loungers. The views of the Banderas Bay, Old Town and the surrounding mountains never get old.

New Building, With Old Town Charm

Completed in November 2014, The Park isn't a high rise. Rather it is in keeping with the architectural details of Old Town, including red-tiled roofs, white exterior and wrought iron railings. It nestles perfectly within the Romantic Zone's cobblestone streets and is adjacent to the the beach, the park, and the area's vibrant nightlife, entertainment, bars, restaurants and clubs.

Local charm doesn't need to give way to inconvenience, however, as the building features a gym with weights, cardio, televisions and bathrooms, a front desk concierge, garage parking, and 24-hour security, as well as free WiFi in the lobby and on the pool deck.

Unlike many accommodations in Old Town, this building is ideally located in the flattest area making the one-block walk to the beach an easy stroll. You can pick up a coffee on your way at Pages In The Sun.

Never-Boring Romantic Zone

Guests can also gain easy, inexpensive transportation to all of Vallarta's regional attractions by taking advantage of our convenient location on the bus route.

You can watch cultural events and Zumba classes in Lazaro Cardenas Park from our terrace, as well as the Saturday Farmers' Market (seasonal).

You can easily step out our door and go for morning walks or runs on the Malecon (seawall/boardwalk), which offers many galleries, shops, restaurants and historic reference points, monuments and statues.

We are also just a block from some of the hottest dance clubs, as well as the many restaurants and lounges on Basillo Badillo and Olas Altas (streets).

Some favorite nearby restaurants and bars include The Blue Shrimp, Daiquiri Dick's, Joe Jack's Fish Shack, The Palm, Si Senor, La Palapa, and many local dance clubs.

Be Our Guests

We can also arrange concierge services such as airport transfer, excursions, in-house chef, Spanish lessons, spa services, and extra cleanings for additional fees.

Feel free to inquire directly about dates, rates and features. We look forward to hosting you and yours at Casa Sol y Mar at The Park!

About Stacey Hartmann

From the Rockies to the Sierra Madre Mountains -

We live outside Boulder, Colorado, with our two daughters and dog, Charlie. We first visited Vallarta for our children's Spring Break in 2013, and were hooked on the area's feel and amenities.

At First, We Meet -

We rented a place in Old Town for the week and loved the cultural vibe and convenience of this authentic Mexican Pueblo on the Pacific, where there is a real sense of community. We decided to purchase our condo because we wanted to make the most of our time on this earth.

Future Escapes -

We also decided perhaps we could make some great family memories returning to Vallarta frequently while our girls are still home, and then after they leave, we will enjoy the area more and more until retirement, when we'll come for months at a time.

We feel very lucky when we can get well-priced 3-hour direct flights from Denver, and so far, have managed to pull that off most of the time with good planning.

Stacey Hartmann purchased this condo in 2014

Why Stacey Hartmann chose Puerto Vallarta

Casa Sol y Mar at The Park is a new 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom luxury vacation rental in Old Town (Zona Romantica), Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Just one block from the beach with no hills to climb, this modern condo features a bounty of light, an extra large terrace, 2 master suites with king and king/double twin convertible beds, a fully equipped kitchen and resort linens. We love being just 10-15 minutes from the airport and then once we check in, being able to walk to so many restaurants and shops, or simply hop on the bus (we are on the bus route) or take a cab.

What makes this condo unique

It All Came Together For Us Here - Casa Sol y Mar at The Park is 'Mexico beach' without 'boring.' Old Town or the Romantic Zone is a unique blend of old Mexican Pueblo, mountains, city vibe and ocean/beach experience.

Location, Location, Location -

We love the convenience of walking everywhere and having such a variety of restaurants, shops, galleries, activities and culture just footsteps away on the Malecon (boardwalk). We want to travel many places, but Puerto Vallarta is a second home where we will return many, many times. It is that wonderful!

This is our 4th stay at The Park condo. The owners of this unit have really put a lot of thought into making this a home away from home. the condo is bright and airy with additional windows added. A great plus. Wonderful cooking kitchen with large terrace for eating. Owners were quick to respond to any questions and the building staff is and always been very accommodating. Will continue to stay at The Park. Thanks for another wonderful vacation.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed our kitchen, and the condo in general. We also love to cook and have tried to outfit the kitchen with all that might be needed to make some great meals. It was a delight to host you, and we really appreciated the chilled white wine left in the fridge! Please come stay with us again! - Stacey and Steve

We had a delightful time! The only complaint is the noise from the local bars all night!

  • 4 of 5

The property is beautiful and the views are spectacular. The roof top pool and area was phenomenal!

As stated the overnight bar noise until 4-5 am was disappointing even with the machines in the room to drown out the noise! It seemed to get louder from 1-5 am!

This would probably weigh heavy into reserving this property again. Maybe something can be done.

There was also construction above us that dropped debris onto the outdoor deck area on Tuesday & Wednesday.

We also awoke to hammering..

We did enjoy ourselves, but were surprised about the noise as stated.

Owner's Response: Thanks Tony for your good review. I'm happy to report we are adding sound proof glass to our windows to reduce the nighttime noise. Next time you visit, it will be much improved. We do hope you'll come again. Kind regards, Stacey

Perfect home away in every way

  • 5 of 5

This was my fifth time staying in zone romantica of PV and my second time staying at Casa Soy Y Mar. we stayed here in April and loved this condo so much that we couldn't resist staying again for our fall break.

The Park building is cenrally located and easy walking distance to absolutely every and anything you want to do in old town. You're close to restaurant row and steps from the beach not to mention many other fun activities. The Park building is a secure building with 24/7 security guard on site. There's a great gym and the most amazingly beautiful salt water rooftop pool with captivating views.

The condo itself is beautifully decorated and the owners spared nothing. From providing holm white noise machines in each bedroom, an in room safe, Hunter Douglas blackout shades, state of the art washer and dryer, the list goes on.

Additionally, this is an end unit so the balcony is extra spacious and the pocket doors from living room are my favorite. It truly offers an amazing indoor outdoor feel that I love so much.

We are beyond comfortable and feel right at home in this beautiful condo.

I have as mentioned stayed at a few other locations in this area and have also been touring properties for purchase and I seem to compare everything to this beautiful unit and building.

Finally, the owner is the sweetest and super easy to work with.

If you are considering this condo, do yourself a favor and book it (provided it's available). It's pure perfection.

Beautiful condo, right in the heart of it all!

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed with this condo and the entire facility. We loved the roof top pool and terrace and found ourselves there at the end of every day. Extremely well maintained with restrooms, showers, outdoor TV's, bar facility with ice machine and cold drink fridge. A wonderful place to start and end the day.

The condo is well equipped with everything you will need for a pleasant stay. It is extremely clean and well maintained and we appreciated the extra care with the purified water at the tap. We loved the beautiful walk in showers, the effecient washer and dryer, the outdoor deck with sliding doors that opened as wide as the living room! The air conditioners were most effecient, cooling rapidly when we came back from a hot afternoon of walking.

The only downside is the night time noise from the bars and also the busses.

Perfect Place in PV

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this area of PV many times in the past but wanted to try a new place on this trip.

I found Casa Sol Y Mar on HomeAway and so glad that I did.

The owners were amazing from the moment I reached out. Provided info, answered questions and helped ensure all was set up for us to have an amazing stay upon arrival.

This is a beautiful and modern spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo in a beautiful secure building with possibly the best rooftop pool in old town.

This is an end unit with a large patio balcony that is perfect for outdoor reading and relaxation or dining.

Location is perfect! You are in the heart of it all. Right on the square; walk to the beach, to restaurants, to night life; everything you could desire. No car is needed when staying here.

The managers of the unit are available to you at any time should you need them during your stay; we felt comfortable to reach out at any time and they were helpful when we once got locked out of the in-room safe due to a malfunction, and came right over to help get it opened for us.

We loved this building and felt right at home in the unit overall. It's beautifully decorated with top of the line amenities and touches. I can not say enough great things about Casa Sol Y Mar.

We are very thankful for the opportunity to rent this amazing place and plan to return again as soon as we are able to do so.

Those renting for longer stays of 30 or more days are responsible for paying electricity.
