After raising 5 kids and many yearly trips to Puerto Vallarta since 1985, we decided it was where we wanted to spend more of our time. We have traveled the world over both for pleasure and humanitarian work and realize how much we have always been drawn back to friendly people of culture and warm climates. Puerto Vallarta offers warm climate, wonderful culture and friendly, happy people.
Our grown children, grandkids, extended family and employees consider PV one of their favorite vacation spots for relaxation, outdoor activities, weddings),fine dining in a friendly culture and entertainment. We decorated our unit so that we, our children and our guests could walk in and feel ON VACATION in decadence immediately.
Marlene Frost purchased this condo in 2007
We love the water, all of water life, beautiful views and warmth. We live in the Northwest and have always been on some kind of water. PV is our favorite for culture and being in downtown is the place we chose rather than being far out and having to take taxis. We love walking and mornings on the Malecon offers another experience of the towns people and their culture as they start their new day. It is great getting a coffee at Starbucks after doing the hills of the town for a little cardio.
We love the location, that we can walk to many different restaurants within just a few minutes, the sandy beach, our gated property right in the heart of all the activity. We love the fireworks from our deck every night and watching the Iguanas in the trees across the river. Walking the malecon right out our gate, the security, semi-private elevators and very large terraces off the living room, dining room and bedrooms. We don't need a car but do have covered parking if we rent one. We also love the amenities of the massages across the street, the convienience store, the grocery store a block away and the best burgers ever at the end of the our block on the beach.
A brand new Fitness Club with 'Life Fitness' machines and many classes to choose from is less than a 3 minute walk. Also within 3 minutes is a brand new wine shop, deli with delicious choices of meats, salads, cheeses to choose from and a beautiful produce section---all with a coffee shop and bakery. Again, 3 minute walk.
We are happy sharing our condo with our children, grandchildren, friends and making 'NEW friends in and around town. We especially enjoy sharing our condo with people like ourselves that work very hard and deserve enjoying a little piece of paradise.
I thought the pictures of your condo were beautiful but now that we are leaving I have to say, they don't do this place justice. Thank you for letting us stay here and for your hostpitality. Everything even down to the matching kitchen utensils was such a treat.
This condo is stunning in every way - furnishings, views, location, it has it all!
This unit is extremely well maintained. I think we have been spoiled for staying anywhere else after a week here! The owners have thought of everything, we couldn't think of anything that wasn't provided. Marlene wasn't kidding when she said we only needed to bring our clothes and personal toiletries! Everything else was already there - right down to binoculars, sunscreen, chip clips, extra thick bath and beach towels, cooler bags, shampoo, hand soap, and so much more! The beds and linens were wonderful, and the building is very quiet. The two large bedrooms are quite luxurious, and both have their own balconies facing the mountainside. The 3rd bedroom is a bit small and has a frosted glass door that faces the kitchen - it was fine for one person and is still quite lovely with its own ensuite bathroom, but a couple might feel a bit cramped in here and/or might feel uncomfortable about not having as much privacy.
The glass doorwalls open up across the entire front of the unit. It's incredible, and we left them wide open the entire week. There are no bugs, and six floors up, safety was not a concern. There is no direct sun coming in at any point, and the ocean breeze keeps everything nice and cool. We only used the air conditioning in the bedrooms, and instead enjoyed the open air and multiple ceiling fans in the kitchen and living areas.
The grounds and gardens at Molino de Agua are beautifully cared for. Everything was spotless and the staff are very friendly. The security personnel do a great job and we felt a little like celebrities when we noticed people's curiosity about what was "behind the gate". This is clearly the premier property in this area.
We loved having the Malecon right at our gate. It was so entertaining to people watch and so convenient to have restaurants and shopping just a few steps away! We especially liked Daiquiri Dick's (pesto chicken penne pasta), The Blue Shrimp (coconut shrimp), and Serrano's (arrachera steak quesadillas). Pass on the pizza from Pinochio's, the little place just the other side of the river. We walked up and down the Malecon every morning, enjoying the ocean views, sculpture art, and bustling pedestrians. One thing that really surprised us - there are a LOT of dogs. They aren't a problem, it was just unusual compared to other vacation destinations.
What a wonderful week - we hope to return!
I have read previous reviews and any positive review of this property were right on point. My first contact with Marlene left me with a very positive feeling. She is thorough, professional, and was always responsive to emails typically within hours. My original request was for 5 nights, however, there was a 6 night minimum. I was hesitant at first but after the extended winter my friends and I were experiencing in the mid west we acquiesced. Best decision ever! This trip was on the occasion of my 50th Birthday. Upon arrival at Molino De Agua we were met by a very competent and friendly front gate staff. Carlos was not available, but, his assistant arrived promptly after he was paged. We entered in the unit and you can hear a pin drop. We all were blown away by its beauty, its decor and we felt instantly comfortable and at ease. Everywhere we turned we were amazed by something special that could not be captured in any web site photograph. Marlene ensured the property was meticulously maintained and her guests were not in the need for anything. The views were amazing, the amenities were far above par. The appliances were top notch. If you decide to choose this property... all you need to bring with you are clothing, specialized toiletries and a willingness to relax and feel pampered. Marlene has thought of everything in this unit. Staying at Casa de Sol was probably the best vacation I have ever experienced. I pride myself on having visited over 40 countries on 6 continents and this property is truly one of the best I have ever stayed. Marlene made it difficult to leave the unit because it literally sucked you in. From the premium linens and bedding, to the powerful yet relaxing showers, the professionally styled kitchen, to the extremely inviting and relaxing living and balcony areas, to the amazing views there isn't one thing that needed improvement... absolutely nothing. Olga the housekeeper cleaned the unit once during our stay. She is like a ninja. She came and went without notice, yet, the unit was just as spotless as the day we arrived. We didn't see her again until the day of departure. Take advantage of the local shops in the area. Whatever you need is within a comfortable and safe 5-10 minute walk. Usually when one speaks of a vacation they only mention the bad incidents. Thanks to Marlene & the staff at Molino de Agua the vacation was problem free and I would definitely return and recommend others to give Casa de Sol a serious look.
I would highly recommend staying at Casa del Sol. It is a beautiful and luxurious condo. The photos are accurate and depict the stunning nature of the accommodations. The location is fabulous, close to shops and eating and beach. Plenty to do. Buses and taxis are easy to get--though we rarely needed them; the board walk and ocean are right outside the gate in one direction and the romantic zone, downtown is out the other gate. The terrace and the pool face the river and the ocean. The pool has a walkup/swimup bar. We could not have been happier with our selection of Casa del Sol. The owners were available and responsive to communication all along the way. The agent on site was very, very helpful to our questions; the doormen were welcoming and courteous; the maid cleaned on several occasions and did a wonderful job. The condo itself is well equipped with everything needed for a lovely time, including plenty of information packets and notes around to make using the tv, wifi, dvds, phones, etc., accessible. We were a family of 6 and found the spaceiousness perfect. I highly recommend Casa del Sol, and we would absolutely stay there again.
Being away from home during the holidays you always hope you find a place that can give you the same feeling as home. We could not have chosen a better "home away from home" for our New Years Eve. Everything was exceptional from the moment we walked onto the property & into the condo door. The first thing you notice is the amazing view, which provided us with our morning dolphin & whale watching, the beautiful sounds of the church bells & our evening firework display in Banderas Bay. You appreciate how nice everything smells & how clean it is (thanks Olga). The linens are all top notch & everything needed for meals & cooking are included in the kitchen cupboards. The welcome basket is such a nice touch (thanks Marlene). We found the best of both worlds choosing to spend some nights out on the town on Olas Atlas street, at wonderful restaurants & then some family nights staying in watching DVD movies that were provided in the condo. We especially enjoyed the huge comfy velvet couch we could all hang out on together! The Wi-Fi was great to stay connected & the Vonage phone line was a nice touch. The location is amazing & allows for just about anything you choose to do. Head right on the Malecon out the back gate & you have anything a tourist would want. Head left & find a very diverse cultural area to explore. The grounds were so well kept & we enjoyed the salt water pool & daily food & drink service that was provided. We always felt very safe & comfortable on the grounds & in the unit. This is truly an amazing rental property & would not hesitate to stay here in the future & recommend to family & friends. Thank you to Marlene & Ron for allowing us to enjoy your wonderful home.
We travelled to Puerto Vallarta with a group of twelve adults. Half (6) of the group stayed in “Casa del Sol” and the other half (6) stayed at a nearby unit in Molino de Agua. This was a first time visit for most of the couples and all have suggested that they would love to return to Puerto Vallarta and Molino de Agua.
Puerto Vallarta offers activities for every taste. It satisfies the adventure-seeker, the athlete, the shopper and the “foodie”. Members of our group snorkeled, sailed, jogged, hiked, fished, rented ATV’s and “pangas” and wandered the streets of Gringo Gulch and the Malecon. We ate at taco stands and award winning restaurants. We shopped at Costco and the local market and bakeries. All of these activities are available within walking distance of the condo or required a short cab ride. What a versatile destination!
A highlight of each day, however, was returning to “Casa del Sol” to enjoy the swimming pool and spectacular sunset from the balconies. Few restaurants (if any) can compete with these views. As an added bonus, we were treated to a fireworks show each evening.
We would highly recommend "Casa del Sol". This condo is superbly equipped, beautifully decorated and immaculately maintained. The local artwork, lighting fixtures and rugs add to the condo’s restful mood. The condo is even more spectacular than the photos would suggest. Marlene thought of everything to make this stay pleasant. The staff (Olga and Carlos) was friendly and helpful. We will be back.
My wife and 3 daughters (21,23,25) spent our annual summer holiday in Puerto Vallarta last week. It was our first time there (we travel all over the world) and we thoroughly enjoyed the town. But what made our vacation AMAZING was Marlene's Condo @ Molina De Agua's Del Sol 609. This condominium was breathtakingly beautiful. It had all the amenities of home (cable TV's, VOIP Phone service, dishes, utensils, towels, soaps, etc.), and truly made our vacation one of the most memorable. Walking distance to everything, the Malecon out your back gate, the location was ideal. The people who work there...from the front gate to the back gate and everywhere in between, were truly there to serve you. It felt like a Ritz Carleton experience only we had this great 3 bedroom condo with all the luxuries of home. And to top that off, Marlene was a charm to work with. From the phone to emails, she got us everything we needed and always on time. It was as if she was more invested in our trip being great than anyone else!!! Carlos, who manages the condo was really helpful and had a wealth of information as well. He gave us great tips on restaurants, places to go, etc. Let's face it, a vacation in Mexico is sitting by the pool or walking the beach by day, and then having a great meal at night!! This was one of the most relaxing vaca's I have taken in a while. And to be living out of "lifestyles of the rich and famous", our home away from home really made the difference. Thanks Marlene for sharing your phenomenal home with us, and for being such a gracious host. If you are looking for a great experience in Puerto Vallarta, Molina De Agua's Del Sol 609 will make that happen. We plan to go back every year, and we will book our dates around availability @ Marlene's condo.
Over 30-40 restaurants within walking distance and lots of shopping and activites along the Malecon make it unnecessary to have a car or use a taxi for more than heading to Costco, Walmart or golf during your stay
