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

Puerto Vallarta Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 2-5)

MY WONDERFUL OCEANFRONT PENTHOUSE, which I have named Penthouse Of The Dolphins, is directly on the water overlooking the Malecon. It is situated in the middle of Puerto Vallarta two blocks from the main plaza, Plaza Principal, 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 five 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 wraparound terrazas every day (hence the name 'Penthouse 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 the dining table, which is situated outside under the covered balcony. You will delight 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 terrazas when it starts its show.

There Are 2 King-size Bedrooms each with its own connected bathroom, and there is also a third guest bathroom complete with its own shower. All of the bathrooms are all hand-crafted in marble. Both bedrooms have Flat screen cable TV/DVD.

The Washer and Dryer are both located inside the condo.

English speaking Managers and staff.

For those of you that like to bring your laptops we also have Wireless High Speed Internet DSL. All you have to do is plug in and you are surfing the web!

*We also have Free Long Distance phone service, so you can call home as much as you like with comfort and ease.*

Hand Hewn Granite countertops accent the custom designed kitchen, which is complete and has all the amenities to make preparation of meals a delight. Dishwasher, microwave, blender, coffee maker are all there, and various spices are always on hand.

The Swimming Pool is located on the roof of the building next to my condo, so just walk out the front door, take 30 steps and you will be standing next to the pool, and the water is always warm and the view is unforgettable.

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!

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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you are checking the availability calendar, if PENTHOUSE OF THE DOLPHINS Is not available for your desired dates, please look at my other wonderful home named HOME OF THE DOLPHINS because it may be available for the dates that you want. It is located just one floor below Penthouse Of The Dolphins on the 3rd floor and is simply fabulous! Its listing number is 20700. 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 Penthouse 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 2008

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.

We had a great time at your place - The staff was so friendly - loved the door man, and the ladies around the units. All were very helpful everything was just as described. I don't know if it was mentioned before, but the washer and dryer inside the unit itself was very helpful. We had a great time. Thanks again!"

Fantastic getaway!!

  • 5 of 5
Went on a birthday getaway with 3 great gal friends. The unit is amazing, very nicely done. We spent tons of time on the incredibly large balcony. Every night around 9pm fireworks go off that you can see from the balcony itself. The unit
is in a great location, close to clubs & restaurants. The doormen/parking lot attendants for the building are super nice & took great care of us. I would highly recommend this vacation unit. It was a fantastic home away from home!!

Great condo

  • 5 of 5
Great condo directly on the ocean in old PV. Interior was beautiful and so were the views. This condo is ion walking distance to everything in the City. The owner and staff were very helpful and we would highly recommend this unit. The outside terrace is one of the best we have ever seen in any rental on the ocean.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Of all our trips to Mexico, our 2 week stay at your home is the most memorable. The house itself is a masterpiece. And to be in just the right location on the Malecon allowed for great entertainment. Moreover, we enjoyed some wonderful people who were also staying in the building. Thank you for having us in your home!

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5
First of all, let me say that Michel's condo is beautiful and he was most helpful in all our communications. All the staff we met, from the security guard who helped us with our luggage upon arrival, to the maintenance staff, were all kind and courteous. It was nice to be met by Sassia, and we were so excited when she took us into the unit, and we could see that it really was just like the photos online. The unit was clean and comfortably equipped. And the location is perfect. Since my husband and I live in an area where we are lucky enough to be able to walk to many of the things we enjoy (beach, shopping, good restaurants), staying here was reminiscent of home since we were able to walk to so many of the things we enjoy doing, but in another country! We never tired of strolling the Malecon and experiencing the excitement of PV. (The Malecon can be a bit noisy with the barkers and bars, but we weren't overly bothered by the noise.) We loved being able to sit out on the terrace every morning with our coffee and enjoy the astonishing view--we did get to see dolphins a couple mornings. We had some great meals--from lunch at a local taco stand to gourmet dinners. Our favorite restaurants were Polo's(yes, Polo's, not Pollo's)--the Sangria was the best I've ever had; Anejo Limon(we met the owner/chef, Bruce Byng at the Farmer's Market who acted as our tour guide at the market and then showed us one of his 3 picturesque restaurants where we ate a wonderful dinner that evening); and Asador La Vaca Argentina(beautiful restaurant with the best steaks we've ever had). All in all, great vacation, great accommodations--we highly recommend the Penthouse of the Dolphins.

Loved our Second Visit

  • 5 of 5
We had yet another wonderful time at your PHOD. Weather was perfect and we loved the hours spent on our “perch” on your patio/balcony with it’s magnificent views of the bay and malecon below. The constant entertainment of the passing folks, the young surfers and the great sunsets made yet another super experience. Sassia was as helpful as usual and we enjoyed meeting your neighbor, Charlie. No question that we will be watching your scheduling to ensure we can get another visit about the same time next year.

Thanks again for all your follow-up and the detailed information you provide that makes our stays feel more like we’re coming home rather than vacationing.

All the best, Michel
