Charming Condo

  • 5 of 5
This charming condo combines traditional Mexico with modern electronics. Staff are both polite and helpful when you need them and anonymous the rest of the time (which we liked). You cannot get closer to the beach and hear the soothing ebb and flow of the Pacific. A superb base for Old Town and Downtown PV. Would we stay again? Absolutely!!!

PS: The owner is a pleasure to work with.

A wonderful vacation

  • 4 of 5
Our fourth time at Gary's condo. Stellar beach experience. Condo is roomy and comfortable. Air conditioner did go out during our stay and Gary was right on it after one email. Great host and spectacular vacation experience. We will definitely be back for a fifth time.

You Seldom Get More Than You Pay For!!!

.....and that is sure true with this offering! Were this review based solely on the location of the property, it would have received a 4 star rating.........not 5 star as the beach view is somewhat restricted by the palapa roofs of the restaurant directly in front of this condo. However the view and the ocean breezes are lovely and the patio is a nice place to sit. Unfortunately it is straight downhill from there! The unit is TIRED and this owner has done nothing to maintain it. The bedroom is a dark hole at the back of the condo (no ocean views or breezes there), with a 'back wrecker' mattress the like of which we've never experienced....like concrete! Oh and speaking of concrete, the advertised futons in the living area that are supposedly able to sleep guests three and four are actually MADE OF CONCRETE with a 4+/- inch piece of foam on top. The kitchen is deplorable with millions of little 'ant like' bugs feeling right at home. The cutting knives are unusable, remotes have dead batteries, light bulbs are burnt out...the list goes on.
The above put a damper on our vacation, but what really upset us was this owner's response to TWO email inquiries regarding a couple of small issues when we arrived.....there wasn't any. My travelling companion relies on a hair dryer and I really appreciate an alarm clock in the bedroom to be able to see the time when up in the night or for a 'wakeup'. These were both items that were listed on the owners website as supplied in the condo and therefore we didn't pack our own. We arrived and both items were nowhere to be found. ONE EMAIL TO THE OWNER WENT UNANSWERED AND THE SECOND EMAIL A COUPLE OF DAYS LATER ALSO WENT UNANSWERED. This unit does have good wireless internet and all our other many emails to friends etc were picked up. This owner chose to ignore us and that is not how to manage a vacation rental!

Owner's Response: 1. Well all I can say is you must have been staying in a different condo then the 33 people who have given me 5 star reviews especially the people who left immediately before he arrived.

2. I did not receive any emails from you while you were in Mexico. This is my one and only personal condo that I have rented for the last 28 years while I am not using it. I always answer any email immediately as I am 75 years old and have nothing much else to do.

3. My maid knows where the extra batteries and light bulbs are located. She sometimes unplugs the alarm clock and puts it in the bottom drawer of the night stand to avoid electrical spikes which we get in Mexico. Someone may have taken my hair dryer. If you had asked the maid she would have found one for you. Lola (the maid) goes out of her way for everyone. I have alway received much praise about her.

4, In regard to the other observations about my condo, the bed being hard and the couches being cement and small ants in kitchen, all I can say is it was your first trip to Mexico and you were not prepared to be in a second world tropical country.

5. In conclusion I think you should be renting at least $250 a night condo not a $125 a night condo (mine) as it would be more to your taste.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5
We loved everything about this condo. The amazing ocean view, convenient location for walking everywhere and the friendly, helpful staff, all surpassed our expectations. Gary was great to work with. Our only complaint? While still on our two week stay, we looked at next year's availability and discovered that the condo was already completely booked for the season! Hope we can come back and stay there again sometime in the not too distant future. It was a relaxing, comfortable place to enjoy all that Puerto Vallarta has to offer.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had a fantastic time at this El Dorado Condo. The owner Gary was very easy to work it. The staff are very helpful and nice. The condo is walking distance to everything. It's very easy to hop on a bus to Mismaloya and Boca de Tomatlan, The condo is steps from the beach and has a great balcony to watch the sunsets and playa de los muertos. Fantastic restaurants everywhere. We will be staying here again.

Great Location and So Charming

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time during our stay .The condo was very clean and was well supplied. The ocean view was fabulous and it was so relaxing hearing the waves at night before a great night sleep. Thanks Gary for sharing your piece of Heaven. I hope to return soon.
