Playas Gemelas Condo Rental Photos and Description
Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
The studio condo is located on the ground floor of the Casa Corazon Hotel and B&B building at Amapas 326. Walking along the beach, we are about 1/4 mile south of the municipal pier in the Zona Romantica section of Old Town Vallarta. Entry is from Amapas into the office which is on floor 8 and then down the elevator to the 4th floor. Floor 4 is the ground floor and is designated as such since it is 4 floors above sea level. A wide pathway to the beach (wheelchair accessible) is totally contained in the Casa Corazon grounds. The path ends at a gate at the malecon requiring one step down from the curb and one step back up on the other side. Pass through Ritmos Cafe to their palapas. When you want a change in ambiance and scenery, walk to the right toward the municipal pier. We are within easy walking distance to many of the restaurants and clubs you may be familiar with or have read about. These include Archie's Wok, Embarcadero, Daiquiri Dick's, Dog House/Encuentros Pizza, Cafe Roma, Cafe de Olla, Andale's, The River Cafe, Blue Shrimp, Joe Jack's Fish Shack, Sea Monkey, Ritmo's, Coco's Kitchen, Harry's Bar, Dog House, Mariscos Polo, Freddy's Tucan, Hacienda Alemana, Que Pasa, La Piazzetta, Langostino's, Kaiser Maximillian, El Torito, Cafe Bohemio, Nacho Daddy, Fajita Republic, A Taste of Italy, in no particular order and many, many more. In front of A Taste of Italy is a small park on the far side of which you can catch a bus for local destinations. Pay your 7.5 pesos when you get on and tell the driver where you want to get off. As we said, Location, location, location! For us it is a 2 minute walk down to the beach including pauses to admire the gardener's handiwork.. The grounds have gated security and a night watchman on duty. The door has an extra deadbolt, chain lock and peephole. The sliding glass doors have dowel rods to insert at floor level for additional security. We have never had a security problem. Our condo has a queen size bed, kitchen with 2 burner stovetop and convection oven as well as all appliances and dishware. A/C, wi-fi, 32'flat screen tv with cable, dvd and alarm clock are included. Patio has security bars and screening. The back yard has a full patio and palapa with 2 loungers. Two more equipale tables with 4 chairs and a gas BBQ are included. The unit now has a combo washer/dryer. Many plants in the back yard give the place a completely private feeling.
This is a self-catering place to stay. It is perfect for people who like to 'take care of themselves'. The unit is completely non-smoking. If you require white glove service and someone following you to the beach in case you drop your towel, this is not your place. Book an all inclusive resort such as Barcelo and you will get all of this but be prepared for the bill! Regular people will enjoy this place. Have FUN! Maid service is provided once per week, normally 3 or 4 days after arrival for a 7 night stay. One set of beach towels are provided and they will be exchanged when the maid comes. If you feel you need more towels, please bring them with you. Additionally, you can arrange for more frequent maid service at extra cost.
All guests are met by someone to let you in, explain the setup and answer your questions. Please use the link to our personal website on this listing for more pictures and information. This is a no smoking unit and smoking is not allowed inside only on the outside palapa.
50% of the rental fee in US Funds is required within five days of the reservation confirmation. Final payment is due 30 days prior to arrival date. All Christmas, New Years reservations and American Thanksgiving require 50% deposit and full payment is due 60 days prior to arrival. If your arrival date is less than 30 days full payment is due within five business days of confirmed reservation. We accept PayPal and wire transfers. As prior owners and operators of a B&B at Lake Chapala, Mexico we have tried to incorporate all that we learned during those 7 years into this rental. All questions and suggestions are welcome.
Cancellation of your reservation will result in your deposit not being returned. If the unit is re rented for your dates a full refund will be sent to you. We are not trying to profit from cancellations but we have very few last minute walk-ins No refunds due to acts of nature, or weather situations, mechanical failure, earthquake, golf conditions, etc. Trip insurance is strongly recommended.
