About Jodie Doerksen
Mazatlan has been home for the last 10 years, full time and have loved every sunset and walk on the beach!
Jodie Doerksen purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Jodie Doerksen chose Centro Historico
We have lived in Centro Historico for the last 8.5 years and have fallen in love with the charm and when we got a chance to purchase the property we could not resist the chance to rebuild the condo and share it with other families like your selves. The historic building is always present in old pictures of Mazatlan. Some prominent families that have called this building home have added to the charm of the property, it is the last property in Olas Altas that has not been divided up into smaller properties. This penthouse has its own private entrance and as soon as you enter the property you have an overwhelming feeling of space with the ceilings in the great room soar to 20 feet. The views of the ocean sunsets from the great room are breathtaking. It is a pleasure to share this experience with many more families. There really is no place to share that is large enough in a location like this. There is nothing that is like the Olas Altas Penthouse! When you come and stay with us you will be amazed at how big 7,600 feet really feels!
What makes this Condo unique
The location is one of a kind in Mazatlan! - With 7,600 ft of living space and the vaulted ceilings in the 4,000 ft2 great room/kitchen/media & loft area, everyone can have their own space to relax. - 3 sides of the building are surrounded by terrace with the best views of the ocean, Malecon boardwalk, and Historic Olas Altas & Centro Historico.
No refunds for cancellations made after payment is made
The loft is an amazing place! It has a huge living area which was perfect for our 20 person meetings and hang outs. The rooms are very comfortable. Being downtown has its plusses and its minusses - Friday and Saturday nights are booming downtown and so it is very noisy until about 2 AM (Bring Earplugs if you are trying to sleep), however being able to just walk around the historic center is awesome. 10 minutes from the beautiful Machado Plaza, and 20 minutes from the cathedral. The hosts are very accommodating, and their helper (Sandy) is a wonderful person. I would recommend this place any day.
The location and size of the condo is in comparable, being directly across from the famous Malecon makes it a popular place for people on Friday and Saturday’s you are correct. Thanks for staying with us and the rest recommendation for other groups to stay.
We had a small group of 9 adults who spent 14 wonderful days in this perfect location, enjoying the beautiful sunsets and all that Centro Historico area has to offer. During the day, we were able to take the beach chairs onto Olas Altas beach that we overlooked, sit in the huge living room looking out to the ocean, and roam the streeets enjoying the many wonderful restaurants. Gregory and Jodie were the perfect hosts, responding to my many questions while I was in the process of booking and preparing for the trip. Once there, I frequently had questions and the response was immediate. One must remember most lodging in this area of Mazatlan is in older buildings, which is true in this case. With that, comes the quirks of older buildings, but that also means you will have lodging that has more character and charm-not a sterile building. We used the barbecue and cooked several meals there and sat at the long table, enjoying our wine, toasting to friendship, and considering ourselves lucky to have found this place!-one note, if you need absolute silence in order to sleep, this may not be the place for you if you are in one of the bedroooms that opens to the front or side streets. My room opened to the front (Olas Altas) and I loved the sound of the waves and even became accustomed to the motorcycles and the music and laughter of others. How can one not appreciate the sounds of happiness!?
Owners were quick to respond, friendly, and were willing to work with me when a medical emergency prevented me from traveling. My family loved the spacious accommodations and location.
Thanks for your review!!
We were all happy to host your family and hope you get well soon!!
We will see you next year!

Our group had a great time. The house was prefect!!
Many good features
Overall the experience was positive. The location in historical area was fabulous. Easy walk to several good restaurants. Lots of fun nightlife around the area.
When we arrived we were greeted by Sandra who was a sweetheart. However there were some issues. The place needed cleaning. Within the hour Sandra had 2 people there and they did a good job cleaning. Then we found that the air conditioning was out in 1 bedroom. Since it was Saturday, it took until Monday to get it fixed. Also, hot water wasn't working. A handyman was called in and got it going. Went down again the next day and a plumber was called in and got it fixed for good.
There were some deferred capital improvement issues but overall things were good and we had fun.
One word of warning, if anyone in your party has physical issues, the stairs into the apartment can be a challenge.
Spent spring break with our children and our grandchildren. With the beach directly across the road and a lifeguard on duty every day was a real plus. The beach and the surf were awesome.
Great place for families and friends.
