THIS IS THE PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
This is my third stay in this wonderful condo and I've been ruined for all other accommodations in Puerto Vallarta. I just can't imagine staying anywhere else.

The view of the ocean/bay is nothing short of amazing - and ever present. The living/dining room and master bedroom are filled with the view. It's not like other "ocean view" places where you have to stand on a chair in a certain corner to see a sliver of water. Nope. The view here is front and center. And let's face it, if you're going to stay in a beach town, you want to see the water.

Every evening but Sunday, the Marigalante sails the bay. At about 10pm, the ship will shoot off a few fireworks that you'll see from the condo even if you're not on the balcony.

The main (and iconic) church is on the next block. Step out onto the balcony and you can almost touch it. The church bells, some of which announce the time while others summon the townspeople to mass, very quickly become an endearing part of life in this condo.

The condo is spacious and very tastefully furnished/decorated. Unlike many, this condo has neither the look nor the feel of a "rental." Walk through the door and you immediately feel "at home" rather than at some sparsely furnished investment property.

Safety is a concern to everyone, myself included. The complex itself is very secure and the surrounding neighborhood is as safe as it gets anywhere on the planet. I often leave in the early morning hours while it's still dark to walk on the malecón (boardwalk). I often come home after dinner at late hours. I have never felt unsafe in this neighborhood or in the downtown area of Puerto Vallarta.

Isabel comes twice per week to help keep the condo clean. She is efficient and friendly and very helpful. Tip her. I leave her 100 pesos for each visit.

The condo is on a hill, but not at the top of the hill. When walking to the condo, the last block will provide a very small workout, but it won't kill you. Take your time. Say hello to passersby. Count the stairs or the cobblestones. Watch your step. Before you know it, you'll be a native.

Yes, I'm writing these words on my laptop here at the dining table in the condo itself. When you get here, you'll know where I was, you'll know how I felt, and you'll know that everything I've said above is only a small fraction of everything I could have said had I not been limited to 2500 characters.

I can't recommend this condo enough, but try not to book it for dates when I'll be wanting it <grin>
