HOME OF THE DOLPHINS - OCEANFRONT LUXURY IN THE CENTER OF TOWN.

Puerto Vallarta Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

MY WONDERFUL HOME, which I have named Home Of The Dolphins (Casa De Los Delfines) is directly on the water overlooking the Malecon. It is situated in the middle of Puerto Vallarta 2 blocks from the main plaza, Plaza Grande, and because of that is walking distance to virtually every shop, restaurant and attraction that Puerto Vallarta has to offer. Its perfect for parties of up to 4 people, and of course is completely air-conditioned.

THE VIEW IS FABULOUS, looking south all the way down the coast to Cabo Corrientes and north all the way to Punta Mita, the northernmost point of Banderas Bay. The dolphins delight in swimming directly in front of my terraza every day (hence the name 'Home Of The Dolphins'), and early in the morning the local oyster divers collect their day’s catch on the rich reef in the crystal blue waters directly in front of my home. With its abundant underwater sea life, snorkeling and swimming are unsurpassed in this area.

BOTH BEDROOMS HAVE OCEANFRONT VIEWS, and the sunsets are truly amazing. If you are like me, you will spend both mornings on my main terrace, drinking your coffee and eating your breakfast watching the divers work and seeing the various seabirds hunt for their morning meal, and your evenings eating dinner at my handmade dining table which is situated outside on the covered balcony.

The colorful waterfall fountain with its koi carp on my balcony can only accent the delight you will experience while taking in the 180 degree view of the ocean and coastline from one end of the bay to the other. Every night there is a fireworks display that is mounted from the Spanish galleon named the Marigalante, and usually the ship passes about 500 feet away from my balcony when it starts its show.

There are 2 bedrooms each with its own separate bathroom. The bathrooms are all hand-crafted in marble. The master bedroom has a king-size bed, and the second bedroom has a queen size bed. Both bedrooms have cable TV and DVD players.

HAND HEWN GRANITE countertops accent the custom designed kitchen, which is complete and has all the amenities to make preparation of meals a delight. UV Filtered water, Microwave, Blender, Coffee maker, 6 Burner gas stove, Large side by side refrigerator and dishwasher are all there, and various spices are always on hand.

THE SWIMMING POOL is located on the roof of the building, just one floor above me, and the water is always warm and the view is unforgettable.

We also have Free Long Distance Telephone, Hi Speed Internet DSL with the wireless option, so just bring your laptop and plug in or connect through your wireless connection and you are ready to go surf the Internet or call home at no charge anytime of the day or night.

!!Things To Do!!

Virtually every water sport is available for you here in Puerto Vallarta. Also, there are horseback rides that take you back into the jungle where you will see waterfalls and flocks of parrots flying overhead. Golf is a major attraction here with several world-class courses. There are canopy tours in the jungle, you can visit the set of 'Terminator', and you can also swim with the dolphins, race mini cars and go to the local Seaworld, where the kids will have a great time. There are concerts every night by local artists in the main plaza, flea markets galore and special events where the local people from areas outside of Puerto Vallarta bring their local food and wares for you to taste and buy. There are numerous fabulous nightclubs and discos that are open until 4 in the morning, so you can dance the night away every night and never go to the same place twice.

Parking is secured under the building, as my condo has the only underground parking in the city center, and the building has 24-hour security personnel to serve you.

WE ALSO HAVE ONE of the best restaurants in all of Puerto Vallarta located on the ground floor of our building facing the beach on the new Malecon. Its name is VITEA, and you will be delighted when you have your lunch or dinner there. It is truly a 4 star restaurant and believe me, their Margaritas are the BEST in town!

About the only detail I left out is that it takes 50% of the rental amount to confirm the booking and the rest is due 45 days prior to your arrival date. My property manager will greet you and show you around upon your arrival. Please email or call me to make arrangements.

PLEASE NOTE: When you are checking the availability calendar, if HOME OF THE DOLPHINS is not available for your desired dates, please look at my other wonderful home named PENTHOUSE OF THE DOLPHINS because it may be available for the dates that you want. It is located just one floor above Home Of The Dolphins on the roof and is simply fabulous! Its listing number is 116585. You will have a great time no matter which of my 2 great properties you choose for your vacation.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO is bring your Smile and a Swimsuit to have a GREAT TIME!

Gracias from Your Owner!

Michel Rubini

Hi, I'm Michel Rubini. the very happy owner of Home Of The Dolphins. I am a musician by trade, and I have been playing piano since I was 3 years old. I came to Puerto Vallarta in 2000 and fell in love with it immediately. I have been blessed with the good fortune to be able to live here with the wonderful Mexican people and share in their relaxed style of living, where everything slows down just a notch or two from the “hurry up” pace of America. To be able to sit on my terrace and view the ocean and listen to the sound of the birds and waves is a wonderfully relaxing experience that I look forward to every morning that I am here. I am very happy to be able to share my little piece of Heaven with you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Aloha, Michel

The Owner purchased this condo in 2004

When I arrived at my future home, walked through the entrada of the building and looked out and saw the azure blue waters of the Pacific and the incredible view of Banderas Bay right in front of me, I fell in love immediately. Being in the center of this wonderful town, I knew that this was the best location in all of Puerto Vallarta. I couldn't resist it.

I Found Out that I could be just as secluded as I wanted as our building is very quiet, or I could enjoy a bounty of cultural and ethnic delights just by stepping outside. It was just up to me to decide what I would do on any given day, be a sun worshiper on the beach or at the pool, or join in the party that is always going on somewhere in this wonderful old colonial town. The views from my terrazas are unsurpassed, I can see the tourists strolling on the Malecon and I can also look out to the Pacific and see whales, dolphins, and even the oyster divers who like to work directly in front of home here.

"WOW!!!!!!!!!! I can't thank you enough Michel. This was without ANY doubt one of my best vacations and your beautiful condo was a big part of it. It was right in the heart of things, which I loved, loved hearing the music, watching the people. This list could go on and on. A special thanks to Sassia for all her help and a VERY special thank you to your security guard (Augustine)!!!! I felt very safe at your condo and the view was breathtaking. I will definitely be back. Thank you again!!!!"

Vacation Of A Lifetime

  • 5 of 5
“Michel, What can I say, Your Casa is spectacular. My wife and I had the vacation of a lifetime. Your Casa is the perfect place to stay. Everything about it is just wonderful. We were tricked into going to some timeshare presentations. Although they were very lovely, None of them compared to "The Home of the Dolphins". Tell Sassia, thanks for all of her help. I will return to PV, and I will definitely stay at the Home of the Dolphins. Thank you so very very much."

Truly Delightful!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, daughter (19 years old) and I were fortune enough to stay at the Home of the Dolphins from May 29-June 6, 2014. The condo was all that it was said to be and all that the photos showed --luxurious, centrally located, and secure. Sassia and her brother who live in the building, were wonderful with helping us acclimate and find our way around. We saw amazing sunsets, watched people walking on the boardwalk, and gazed out at the ocean ---all from the comfort of our balcony! Because of its perfect location, we were able to easily walk to the many restaurants and shops (we did our best to stimulate the economy!). Taxis, also, were right around the corner to take us to some of the other activities we planned (would definitely recommend Rhythms of the Night, and a day at Las Caletas). This was our first PV stay, and being in the condo gave us such a positive experience, that we can’t wait to return. (Added bonus: For those with 'teens', the free internet was a lifesaver!! And my husband really appreciated the free telephone service to check his business calls since we couldn’t use our cells.) Thank you Michel, for sharing with us, your part of paradise!

My fiancé and I stayed at the Home of the Dolphins for 10 wonderful days. The location is perfect and right in the middle of the malecon. We enjoyed both mingling with the locals and taking in the breath taking views from the balcony. The security staff was extremely attentive to our needs and very friendly. This was our first trip to Puerto Vallarta and will definitely not be our last! We explored other areas including Puerto Nuevo and if you are looking to participate in the cultural flavor of Puerto Vallarta, this is where you will want to be. This area is not for those who are wanting to enjoy tranquility and peace and quiet. There was activity on the malecon until 1 or 2 AM every night but we did not mind as we were thoroughly entertained. The location is convenient to many restaurants both local and familiar chains. We highly recommend staying at the Home of the Dolphins.

Hospitable host

  • 5 of 5
Home of the Dolphins is a delightful place for a Puerto Vallarta visit, and Michel is the perfect host. He patiently answered all our questions prior to our stay, making settling in all the easier. He also happened to be at his Penthouse of the Dolphins while we were in town and invited us up for a tour and happy hour. Now, that's a host!

Both units are beautiful, well-appointed, spacious, and comfortable. We concur with other reviewers that the location is also ideal. A local nightclub played music a bit loud for our tastes, but it was only Saturday night and not too bad. When we first arrived, we were concerned the Malecon might be too noisy, but that was never a problem. The crashing surf was the best background noise.

Michel truly knows how to take care of his guests, and we hope to stay here again.
