QUIET ELEGANCE IN A TRANQUIL GARDEN IN THE HEART OF ROMANTIC ZONE--HEATED POOL

Puerto Vallarta Condo Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 6 persons - 2 Bedrooms (4), Queen Murphy Bed (2); 2 Shower Baths

Located two blocks from the Los Muertos Beach Pier. A precious few low rise buildings nestled in a large tranquil garden setting with stunning views of the ocean, mountains, bay and city make up this quiet retreat just steps from great restaurants, shopping, convenience services and entertainment. Zero entry heated pool with infinity edge, Jacuzzi, workout room, large shaded palapa area on pool deck with WI-FI, secure parking and magnificent landscaped grounds complete this treasure. The condo is beautifully appointed throughout in a casual elegant Mexican style with custom touches, high end appointments and numerous upgrades. Comfortable seating, custom made American sized and quality pillow-top mattresses, luxury linens, a fully equipped granite and stainless kitchen and 2 balconies plus a large private outdoor patio with grill and covered dining are only some of the amenities provided. Over 1750 sq. feet of private indoor and outdoor space. PLEASE CHECK CALENDAR FOR AVAILABILITY.

This is our home away from home and we are furnishing it for our comfort and that of our guests. You will find gauzy drapes gently moving with the breezes off the Bay of Banderas and the Sierra Madre mountains and comfortable chairs and sofas in leather, woven natural banana leaf fiber and cool cotton upholstery. Saltillo tile floors, stucco walls, arched doorways, Mexican handicrafts, and perrotta wood detail throughout provide a distinctively Mexican feel. In the kitchen, granite counters, tile, and perrotta cabinets continue the style while up-to-date modern fixtures and appliances provide all the convenience you would expect. The beautifully landscaped two level patio is unique to this unit as it is very large and very private with a gas grill and comfortable furnishings. The patio and balconies have a view of the ocean and the city's famous Cathedral. You can watch the sky turn bright pink over the ocean at sunset and see the fireworks from across the bay. In unit secure free WIFI and unlimited VoiP Canadian/US phone plus local landline phone.

The complex: Our home is part of a magnificent condo complex where you will be surrounded by beautifully maintained tropical flowers, plants, & trees. The low-rise low-density buildings artfully tuck into the perimeter of what seems like a botanical garden. In the center is the fabulous HEATED zero-entry, infinity-edge pool with spa, and large pool deck with breath-taking views of mountain, city, & ocean, pool deck WIFI, workout facility, kitchen, and washrooms. There are handmade tables and chairs under the large palapa and padded lounge chairs & umbrellas for sun and relaxation. This peaceful oasis is set right in the middle of the liveliest part of town, called the Zona Romantica, Old Town, or Los Muertos Beach area. You are 2 blocks from the best beach in PV and 3-10 minutes walk to lots of great restaurants, lively bars & entertainment, shops, banks, ATMs, buses, taxis, quickmarts, liquor stores, bakeries, drug stores, a full grocery store, the River Cuale, and the Malecon.

Zona Romantica/Old Town/Los Muertos Beach: We love this part of town. The cobble stone streets and natural beach are alive with people having a great time all day and half the night. You can play in the sand or swim; go parasailing; fish in the surf; go to sunset cocktail hour on the beach and then have a terrific inexpensive dinner in bare feet; arrange a tour; dine at an upscale restaurant; watch the whales playing on the Bay; have Peking duck made by a Beijing chef; buy handcrafted silver jewelry and local handicrafts; listen to live music; see the Pirate Ship's fireworks display on the Bay at night; take a water taxi to a nature reserve; be serenaded by a mariachi band of little boys; catch a show at Blue Chairs; take the bus cross town for 6.5 pesos to the Marina and look at the yachts or to Wal-Mart to stock up on cheap groceries & sundries; buy fresh tamales for tomorrow's breakfast at 8 p.m. from a street vendor; browse the art and artisan shops. A 10-15 minute walk along the waterfront to downtown will bring you to the Main Plaza and Guadelupe Cathedral.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We liked everything about Alegria! I have stayed in quite a few condos, and yours was one of the best as far as "having everything you need". It was a nice touch to have the travel guide books in the baskets (with reading material)....especially for people who may have not been to PV (or Mexico) before....your instruction book covered everything we really needed to know about operating equipment in the condo. The book was awesome! the grounds were absolutely GORGEOUS! The pool area was unbelievable........we could have spent most of our days right there (and sometimes did). One of the things we liked best was your beautiful outdoor areas.....we ate every meal outside, and grilled a couple of times. We also loved the spectacular views, and the way the windows/doors open up to the outside. I would highly recommend Alegria to anyone who is interested in renting a condo in PV. You could not ask for a better location, and next time I return to Mexico I would definitely inquire about staying there again. It was the perfect place for us.....my grandson spent hours and hours in the pool and said it felt like "home" to him.

We are self-employed baby boomers who have purchased this property to share with guests as a home away from home.

Linda purchased this condo in 2006

This is an extremely unique and beautiful recently redeveloped condominium complex, laid out within the original gardens of the former property, overlooking the Bay of Banderas and Puerto Vallarta but just steps from the Beach.

You will be in a beautiful oasis of flowers and trees just steps from all the action of fun Puerto Vallarta. You are 3 minutes walk from the beach, the bars, the nightlife, great restaurants, shopping, and art galleries, without sacrificing privacy and peace and quiet.

Alegria de Selva Romantica Rocks!!

  • 5 of 5
May 2009

We just returned from our trip to Puerto Vallarta and had a fabulous time. I have been many times before and this is the best condo I've stayed in to date!! We couldn't be more pleased with our stay at Alegria in the Selva Romantica complex. The condo totally rocks! It's roomy, comfy, nicely furnished (the beds are even comfy which is a rare find in Mexico) and it has everything you need already there. It's only a couple blocks from the beach and within walking distance to Market Square & the Malecon.
The pool is wonderful! It has a spectacular view and is really big! And the hot tub is also huge and hot! Resort style without all the hustle and bustle of vendors bothering you! And everyone we met, staff, residents & visitors were extremely friendly!!
I will be telling all of my friends about Alegria de Selva Romantica and recommend it to anyone who is interested in staying there (as long as it's available when I come back)!!!

We loved it!!

Fabulous condo!

  • 5 of 5
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Selva Romantica Condo! Lots of space for me, my husband and two boys (14 and 17). Beautiful views. Great outdoor patio area. Nice furnighings and a modern, well-appointed kitchen. The pool was the highlight. Stunning view of the city and beach from the pool. Quiet and lots of lounge chairs in the sun and shade. The property is at a great central location in PV. Close to beaches and lots of restaurants. Linda was easy to deal with. The property exceed our expectations. Will definitely stay there again when we return to PV.

Beautiful condo in a great location!

  • 5 of 5
My group has been coming to Puerto Vallarta each year for over a decade and this is our first year staying at this complex. The condo and entire complex exceeded our expectations. The unit and grounds were beautiful and in a perfect location - close to the beach, restaurants, shopping and entertainment. The property manager was very helpful and accommodating and Linda was extremely good to work with, making the scheduling of this trip very easy. We loved it!

Paradise in Puerto Vallarta

  • 5 of 5
We totally enjoyed our week at Selva Romantica! The condo was beautiful and very comfortable. We enjoyed relaxing and watching sunsets from the lovely patios. We spent many afternoons enjoying the heated infinity pool but we found the hot tub temperature to be too hot. The location was terrific: close to the beach, restaurants & bars, the Malecon, the island and shops. The owners did a great job providing us with information about Puerto Vallarta including restaurants, shopping and attractions.
We were there Easter weekend and the surrounding neighborhood was loud in the evenings with music playing and dogs barking. We enjoyed the music, but had to close the windows at night time and use the air conditioner, even though the weather outside was a perfect temperature for sleeping.
This was our first trip to Puerto Vallarta and we could not have selected a better place to stay. Selva Romantica is a very special place with an incredible location!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very kind comments. Easter is traditionally a time for partying--by local people, as well as, North American spring breakers and Mexican people who head to the beaches to celebrate. We're glad you were able to block it out when you wanted to sleep.

Alegria property in PV

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We came down to celebrate our middle son's college graduation. My husband, 3 adult sons, and myself had a fabulous time. The condo was amazing. The boys enjoyed the pool, hot tub every evening. The condo was roomy enough for all of us and the decor was great. My husband is a woodworker and he adored the mahogany doors. We have lots of pics of those! :)
We would recommend this condo to anyone heading to PV. We really liked the location - nice, relaxing walk to great restaurants. I didn't feel like I was in a tourist trap, but rather enjoying Mexican hospitality at its finest!
Thank you!

The condo was wonderful and the owner's service was fine. Internet connection was not working at the time, but repair was on its way, we understand. We loved staying here and will try to do so again, next time we visit this great city of warm people.

Owner's Response: The modem failed going into a weekend. The nice thing about this property is that there is also wifi available on the pool deck. Also, when the property manager was alerted, she brought her own modem to enable continued guest internet use in the condo until Telmex could replace the equipment.

In this Old Town, Zona Romantica, area of Puerto Vallarta, there is a micro-climate of cool evenings and sunny warm days in high-season, with warmer wetter days in off-season. We find it perfect. You can roam the cobbled streets to find wonderful restaurants, artisan shops, lively music and colorful shows, art galleries, jewelry shops, Mexican handicrafts, and fun bars. Los Muertos, the best beach in PV, is just 2 blocks away from Alegria with water sports and parasailing available. You can catch a water taxi there to quaint Yelapa or fish for your dinner. Or you can stroll down the beach to the Malecon to take in the sites downtown--the Church of Guadalupe, live performances at the Main Plaza, etc.. There's something for everyone here. You can soak up the sun at our heated pool or walk down to the lively beach, shop to your hearts content or go for a whale watching sail on Banderas Bay, take a canopy tour in the rain forest, or go gallery hopping.

Other Activities: Pet the Baby Lions at the Zoo; Swim with the Dolphins, Visit the Botanical Gardens
