About The Owner

Your (European) host is committed to your guest satisfaction, has been a fan of Puerto Vallarta for over 40 years, and maintains residence in Puerto Vallarta. Over this period of time and many travels throughout the world to beautiful exotic places, he has realized that few places rival Puerto Vallarta with its proximity to other under appreciated/under visited places like Guadalajara/Mexico's colonial cities with their year-round 'eternal spring weather' with endless sunshine. Puerto Vallarta is an ideal home, and is always friendly, inviting and safe. The historic part of town has everything, and is always lively.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2010

Why The Owner chose Playas Gemelas

This property could not be in a more optimal location. In season, whales can be seen from the balcony where there are daily performances of para-sailing right off the beach. Watch cruise ships in the far horizon cruise in and out of Banderas Bay. Most of all, feel at home here, unwind and relax. We are committed to your total Guest Satisfaction, which is why most of our Guests are repeat customers. The Historic Zone, Viejo Vallarta, is at the heart and soul of PV, and unlike adjacent areas (Nuevo Vallarta, Punta Mita, Sayulita, Bucerias, Mismaloya) is convenient, central and full of things to see and do without having to take a taxi. Many great walks available in all directions (Malecon, Conchas Chinas Beach, Calles Miramar/Matamoros) all inviting and safe, even at night.

What makes this condo unique

Many other properties in the area are in over sized, impersonal buildings or bldgs (eg Molino de Agua) with northern exposures offering little direct sunlight. This unit is filled with natural sunlight, yet there is always shade on portions of the wrap around patio. This condo is in a very quiet intimate setting, with very friendly residents and staff, who will make you feel at home. You will never want to stay in a hotel again (at least this is what our guests write in the Guest Book), and you will probably want to come back again. No pets are allowed in building and building is very peaceful and quiet. This is a corner unit, considered one of the best in the building. Condo offers lots of sunlight, high ceilings, cross breezes, lull of surf below. Unlike other buildings and units, this condo offers prime west/southwest exposures (great for sunsets/views of Los Arcos), with balcony offering sun and/or shade since it wraps around.

Looking for the best two bedroom oceanfront condo in Old Town Puerto Vallarta?

  • 5 of 5
Lucky for us, the owner is willing to share. From the moment you enter this beautiful condo, see the wide ocean view and hear the waves, your mind shifts to relaxed, vacation mode. We were here in September with our kids - ages 4 and 6. At this age, they did not miss much in school and the lack of crowds made all activities easy. Although the forecast in September tends to show rain and thunderstorms almost every day, we had beautiful warm summer days every day, with one Thunderstorm and a few light showers - all only at night.
Our host loves Puerto Vallarta and wants you to love it too. He provided complete instructions for the condo and lists of good things to do and places and things to eat.
We quickly learned that the city buses are always close, efficient and easy to use, whether for shopping destinations or activities. The two most delightful activities we had with the kids were the trip to Boca Tomatlan with water taxi to Las Animas beach and the trip to Aquaventuras Water Park (with dolphins) in Nuevo Vallarta. We easily got to both using city buses (very inexpensive). Because the kids had so much sun and heat at the water park, we took an air conditioned taxi (one of several waiting outside the entrance) on the way home.
On the water taxi ride from Boca Tomatlan, the kids were thrilled to see Pelicans diving into the water around us and to visit the crabs, iguanas, dogs and various birds we encountered
on the beach at Las Animas. they stayed cool in the water, playing safely a few yards from where we sat and enjoyed a great lunch (first time for shrimp turnovers - very yummy) and drinks. The restaurants have showers for the comfort of their guests. On the way back, the water taxi operators let our kids sit at the front of the boat, where they were close to the front man and safely had the best view. At the Aquaventuras water park - not the other one,
which is called "Splash", we and a few other families had this huge place to ourselves.
There was a huge area full of watersides and features for small children. A man made river runs around it, with jetted water keeping it flowing under bridges and past interesting features that spray water at you. Life jackets are required for the kids but they loved it and cloud have kept floating down the river for hours more. There were many amazing watersides and our daughter got a picture of a dolphin kissing her.
This was a fantastic condo and a wonderful family vacation and we plan to return.

The best

  • 5 of 5
Having visited Puerto Vallarta many times over the past 20+ years this was the first time our family of 5 rented a condo instead of staying at a hotel. All I can say is we will never stay in a hotel again while in PV. This particular condo was a superb choice.
From the moment I first got in touch with our host to the moment we left, all I can say is the entire experience was truly a five star experience.

First let me say our host was extremely friendly and responsive to our every question and need along the way and provided us with a great tip sheet for the best places to go within PV for dining, groceries, treats, amenities, excursions, etc., etc. This was very helpful.

The condo itself was superb! All modern amenities, comfortable beds and beautifully appointed décor. We never needed anything other than our food, treats and drinks. The views were spectacular from every room and we spent a great deal of time after our daily activities just sitting out on the balcony with our favorite cocktail watching all the activities on the beach just below. The views and sounds of the surf and perfect sunsets each night were truly amazing and so relaxing for us. One evening a spectacular thunderstorm came through which was also amazing. Another evening we watched a couple of turtles come on to the beach an lay their eggs. Every night there was always something new to watch and experience.

The condo property itself is located right where you want to be to enjoy the best of PV. Everything was literally right there with our favorite restaurants, bars and amenities just a short stroll away. Every day we could just walk out to the beach, swim in the ocean and then come back for a relaxing time at the pool. Our teenagers literally lived in it.

So what can I say, we miss it already. It was one of the best, most relaxing vacations we’ve ever had and we will definitely be back. Thank you for being such a great host!

This place is PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
This place is absolutely PERFECT! Views from the balcony are breathtaking. Pictures can not do it justice, way better than anything we were expecting. Condo is luxuriously decorated and very modern. Located close to everything. Only had to take a taxi to and from the airport, everything else was in walking distance of the condo which was especially nice for mid-day rests. The owner has everything very well stocked and provided us with all the maps and tourist recommendations we could ever need. Honestly, there is nothing that would have made this place any better. Would highly recommend this place to anybody, it is worth every penny and many more. Thank you to the owner for a great vacation experience!

A wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5
I just wanted to take this time to thank you for allowing us to occupy your condo last week.
We found it absolutely charming, and cannot imagine a better location.
Everything that we wanted was right there. We especially enjoyed the wrap around balcony, where we were afforded a magnificent view of the beach and ocean in the mornings, and thoroughly enjoyed the view of the town square at night. The Saturday Market was within easy view of our balcony, and we wandered through it the both Saturdays that we were there.
Although this was our first visit to PVR, we are now convinced that it will not be our last. In fact, we are planning another trip next spring, hoping that we can once again book your Condo.
Thank you.

Close to everything

  • 5 of 5
This is one of the original condo buildings on the beach which means the location is about as central to the heartbeat of Old Town as you can get. Although older, it was built as a very high quality unit, is well maintained, and is smartly designed for two couples. The outdoor wrap around patio is fabulous. A couple things really set this place apart.
First, it's fully ready for you. The kitchen and fridge have all those "little" things already there; spices, condiments, etc. Tons of glassware and cooking utensils. The bar is fully stocked and set up on a replace-what-you-use basis. This is soooo sensible (We used some gin, but there was plenty left so we replaced the vodka which was lower in supply). Lots of beach towels and chairs to sit under the provided beach upbrellas. And so forth.
Second, good restaurants are all around you. Daily breakfast was fresh croissants from the bakery 200 ft. from the door. You are within easy walking distance to every sort of shop and fod experience PV has to offer. We liked to walk inland because about 3-4 blocks in, everything becomes less tourist and more real Mexico for shops and eats.

Wonderful as always

  • 5 of 5
This was our third time at this condo. As before everything was perfect. The location is wonderful, right on the beach and within walking distance to practically everything. The only taxi we took in 2 weeks was from and to the airport. The owner truly wants you to share his love of PV. He called us from overseas to make sure everything was going good. Took advantage of some of his 50 reasons to love PV and he was right on. I almost hate giving these reviews because I'm afraid it will be harder to reserve in the future. Already looking forward to our next visit.
