Why Harvey Malinsky chose Romantic Zone
If there's one street in Zona Romantica that's made for shoppers, it's Basilio Badillo found between Pino Suárez and Insurgentes. Discover this local secret where you can find the very best in art, the most captivating jewelry (Cielito Lindo and A Touch of Gold), great clothes, scarves and handbags (Que Mona), lovely manta and colorful talavera and so much more. This street has always had the moniker “Restaurant Row” since, even to this day, you won’t go hungry on Basilio Badillo. Popular places, ethnic eateries, local comidas corridas (with a daily menu at a low price), bakeries, seafood and meat, it’s all there. Take your time to explore this trendy neighborhood. You may find yourself coming here time and again. No taxis needed unless you are venturing off for a major excursion. From Vallarta 399, you are 3 blocks to Los Muertos Beach and the Malecon, where you can enjoy a leisurely stroll along the ocean to the newer part of PV. Here are a few quotes from travel sites that reflect our sentiments about Zona Romantica. ...“There is a special spirit in the air, which will add something special into your heart. Well .. everywhere :-)” ... “I love this area of Puerto Vallarta. It is the funky & eclectic area that many visitors miss. It is a MUST SEE area of town, Easily walk-able, safe and full of great restaurants, bars, cafes, shopping, galleries, beach bars, you name it.... it is all here. Great hotels and vacation rentals... so you will not even have to take a taxi to get to cool places. Come and explore the coolest area of Puerto Vallarta.”... “This place is like New Orleans French Quarter. During the day it's bustling with workers and the business of the city. At night, the lights give it an atmosphere that lends to romantic walks and visits to restaurants and bars you may have missed during the day.”

An Ideal Home Away From Home
We have recently returned from a month long vacation in Puerto Vallarta in PH 04 in the condo building V399. The location of this building is excellent. It is in the heart of old town Puerto Vallarta, the Zona Romantica. Shopping, many restaurants shows, the beach, Malecon and weekly market are within short walking distance. The building itself is beautiful. An inner courtyard is serene and restful with a lovely fountain/pool and many beautiful plants. It is very well maintained, very clean and very secure. The building has 24 hour security. Staff are friendly and helpful. Maintenance issues are addressed immediately. The top deck infinity pool and hot tubs are wonderful. The plants on the top deck are spectacular and very well maintained. We enjoyed the many seating areas and pagodas. Unit PH 04 was very comfortable and beautifully furnished. It is large enough that 2 couples can stay here very comfortably. Very comfortable king sized beds and complete ensuite bathrooms for both bedrooms were appreciated. The patio had nice views and we enjoyed most meals there. A beautiful, well equipped kitchen was most appreciated. The owners of this unit were very welcoming and friendly, and provided all the information we needed to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Although air conditioning was available, the many windows and sliding doors allowed comfortable breezes throughout the unit. We enjoyed our stay here very much and hope to return for another visit.
The Perfect Place to Stay in the Romantic Zone
This was our second time to stay at "Vallarta Vida," a penthouse condo in the heart of Puerto Vallarta's Romantic Zone. It will not be our last.
Vallarta Vida is perfectly located in the center of "Viejo Vallarta." It is a five-minute walk from the beach (Playa Los Muertos), and within easy walking distance (i.e., no hills!) to the best restaurants, taco stands, stores, and shops in the area. Nonetheless, the condo is very quiet at night.
The entire apartment is very well decorated and maintained. It is spotless when we check in, and is stocked with everything needed for cooking and/or entertaining (the condo even features an electric tea kettle which my tea-drinking wife loves!). The king-size beds are very comfortable, and the air-conditioning is quiet and probably rather energy efficient, as we stay quite comfortable while apparently keeping within the 15 KW-hr/day limit on electricity (we use settings of 26-27 °C up on the units which equate to cooler temperatures at floor level).
The roof-top jacuzzi and infinity pool are incredible, providing views of Old Town and the Pacific Ocean while you relax in refreshing water.
I cannot think of one negative thing to say about Vallarta Vida; it earns its five-star rating honestly.
Super clean, nice, perfect location
Beautiful home with everything you need. Walking distance to the beach and restaurants. The rooftop pool and lounge was a great amenity. Harvey and the building staff were great to work with. Highly recommend.
Michelle, we are so glad that you and your friends enjoyed your visit to our home in PV. Hopefully, it has convinced you that Zona Romantica should be a once more destination and we look forward to hosting you again.
First Class Condo!!
We just got home after spending a week in this great property.The building is only a few steps away from many restaurants and only a 5 minute walk to Los Muertos beach.
The unit is very spacious with 2 master suites both offering very comfortable king beds.A lot of time and attention was spent when the condo was furnished and decorated !It has a large kitchen with excellent appliances and fully stocked spicecupboard and other condiments. We all loved the artwork throughout the condo.
The tv systems ( three) are Smart Tvs offering Shaw Cable plus Netflix .There is a propane BBQon the second deck but there were so many restaurants close by we never had a chance to use it. The 7 th floor has a large infinity pool plus hot tubs ,BBQ.and shade areas with tables and couches.We spent many hours there enjoying the amenities.The Building is extremely well maintained and secure with great staff.
We want to thank Harvey for sharing his PV home with us.

From the front door of Vallarta 399, there are no hills to climb and no need for taxis. You are in the very heart of Old Vallarta, just steps away from the very best restaurants, bars, boutiques & other shopping to suit every taste, palette and budget. This is the Old Vallarta you hear about with cobbled streets and red brick rooftops covered with bouganvillia of every variety and only 3 short blocks to the ocean.
