Overview

Puerto Vallarta Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

NOTE: SPECIAL APRIL 2015 RATE! ONLY $250/NT FOR THE REMAINING DAYS IN APRIL!!

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. Our building is 4 stories and has both elevator and stairway access. Penthouse Of The Dolphins is located on the 4th floor as is the swimming pool.

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 my handmade dining table, that 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.

WE ALSO HAVE Free Wi-Fi High Speed Internet, so just bring your laptop and connect through your wireless connection and you are ready to go surf the Internet at no charge anytime of the day or night.

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 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.

A note about Puerto Vallarta beaches; beaches are not always completely sandy. Although I cannot guarantee that the beach directly in front of our building will be completely sandy upon your visit, there are always plenty of sandy beaches for everyone within a block of our building.

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

About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose Puerto Vallarta

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Artsy, comfy, glorious spot for feeling good relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Michel: we are home after our dreamlike days in Puerto Vallarta. We are so grateful for having shared those five days in your wonderful Penthouse of the Dolphins--and indeed we enjoyed the dolphins in the bay oh so close to your great balcony. The condo is a glorious place and we savored our time there even with bizarre dark weather and torrential rains. Quite dramatic. We loved your place! Thank you for sharing it with others. We certainly hope to be able to stay there again, or in your third floor condo. Thank you for all the fine information and the good communications, including a sweet welcome from Sassia. We appreciated the staff as well, the ease of using your vrbo website for making arrangements, and all the accoutrements in the condo. We hope to return with the friends within the next year.

On some of the nearby favorites--we agree with folks about Vitea for any meal of the day, walking along the Malecon every day, the super Flamenco guitarists of Tatewari on Monday evenings at Cuates y Cuetes near the pier on Los Muertos beach, and the every evening ritual of getting set for sunset viewing from the balcony at Dolphins.

Everything and more ...

  • 5 of 5

This penthouse lived up to its description and traveler reviews. The penthouse was amazing with fabulous views of the Malecon and ocean. We were able to watch dolphins and whales play from our balcony as well as watch people meandering on the Malecon. It's location cannot be beat with easy assess to restaurants, taxis, shopping, etc. And for those Arizona State fans/alum (which we did have one in our group) you'll be happy to know there's an ASU bar on the ground floor of this building. All the personnel associated with the condo are very nice and helpful with any question you might have. All four of us would highly recommend staying at this beautiful condo. You will not be disappointed.

Absolutely gorgeous, spotless and wrap-around terrazzo is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Puerto Vallarta several times and this was by far the best condo we've stayed in. Incredible views from the terrace and master bedroom, and master bath as well, which is huge. Great kitchen, immaculate and the pool is literally a short few steps out of the front door. The Malecon is directly underneath the condo and wonderful for people watching. Everything is right at your fingertips, including excellent restaurants, shops, taxis to go wherever you like. Thank you again, Michel for a wonderful place to enjoy PVR!!!

A perfect place to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed your condo, Michel! The views were beautiful, the location was spot on and the pool on the rooftop was perfect to enjoy the ocean views. Everyone we met at the complex was so nice and, although I've never been nervous or scared in PV, it was nice to have the security at the gate, none the less. Also, it was very convenient having the corner drug store and restaurants right outside the doors. You were correct on the restaurant, Vitea. We had our dinner there on our last night and it was delicious and reasonably priced. Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo with guests and whenever we are ready to return again, I'm sure you will be hearing from us! It was a perfect place, location and time to make lasting memories with family!

Paradise on the Pacific

Michel, We absolutely loved staying at the Penthouse of the Dolphins. A beautiful view, marvelous outdoor seating, and comfort.... we had it all! Especially we enjoyed the artwork throughout your home. The portraits of a beautiful woman and a boy...... is there a story there? We felt very special. Thank you for the experience. William & Maureen
