Fantastic condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5
This was my second time staying at this condo/unit, it was just as good as the first. Excellent attentive staff took care of everything, even when faced with a minor problem. So a great big thank you to Gabbi, Katrina, Eduardo and Miguel for keeping on top of things.

The condo itself has everything one needs for a comfortable stay. Having dual a/c units was a blessing as there were a few very hot days during my stay. Also having a washer/dryer unit inside the condo was a great plus as packing was made much easier/lighter, especially with the strict airline weight restrictions. Laundry detergent and fabric softener provided, along with dish detergent and some other assorted essential toiletries.

The real plus to this condo is its rooftop pool/jacuzzis (2)/ gas bbq and lounge area. Many days were spent under the canopy: sipping homemade mojitos, reading my book and occasionally looking up at the wildlife passing by. There are many types of butterflies, dragonflies and if your lucky hummingbirds. Everywhere you looks the views are to be enjoyed from ocean, city or mountain. Great photo opportunities abound. No text: great fireworks from the pirate ship,every night between 9:30-10:00.

But the real added bonus to this condo is its location, so close to everything. Being right there at the corner of I. vallarta and B. Badillio you've got great shopping, restaurants, bakery (Yaritas), liquor store and of course the beach less than a 10 min walk. Go for a massage at Philipe's right next door to the condo, a on hr combo massage/reflexology cost $450 peso or less than $40CND with tip. Philips really knows his stuff and this is coming from a holistic practioner, highly recommended. For those who like to cook, check out Emiliano Zapata Mercado a fantastic area. Stop in for a drink at Que Pasa on A. Serdan, great drink/food specials. Owners Mike and Yvonne are some of the kindest people you ever met. If your a seafood lover El Colera, I know strange name has some of the best seafood at great prices located right in the market. With so many great places to discover, just ask around the locals are very friendly. I travel alone often and have always felt very safe at anytime of day/night.

There's so much more I could say: the weather, the food and of course the people of Puerto Vallarta. Truely are some of the warmest and friendly folks I have ever met on my travels. Thank you Michael for sharing your little peace of heaven with us all.

This place was excellent and had a great location. I enjoyed being in the center of Zona Romantica. The studio/apartment was clean and modern and I would love to stay here again. I just felt safe and it was nice having two ac units and a nice luxurious shower. Hope to go back soon.

Well appointed modern studio in elevator building

  • 4 of 5
We spent a few days in this very modern small studio. The space itself was very well appointed with modern high end fixtures and furniture including a full stainless and granite kitchen and laundry. There is a king bed, pull out sofabed, upholstered chair, coffee tables, and high-boy dining table and chairs.

The building has a lovely rooftop deck with pool, spa, and a great view. Everything was clean and in good working order in this well kept newish secure elevator building in a very good location about 3 blocks from the beach. The building is constructed in the shape of a square with a central open air atrium courtyard. Each floor has an open air walkway adjacent to the atrium that serves as the corridor for the units on that floor.

The property manager met us promptly on arrival. It would have been helpful to have been informed that the entire building's water supply was purified and what chanels were in English on the TV. The only drawback to this unit is a lack of natural light and useful windows for fresh air. One window opened out to the atrium walkway and the other faced outside but at a wall about 15 feet away.

Overall the experience was like being in a small high end hotel junior suite with kitchen and laundry.

Even better experience than advertised

  • 5 of 5
This is a great property located in the heart of the zona romantica. I've been visiting Puerto Vallarta at least once a year for the past five, staying in hotels and condo rentals. The building and this particular unit are superior. New, solid construction. Beautiful roof-top pool and lounge area. I met many friendly tourists also staying at other units in the building, made some great new friends.

The owner's rental team is top-notch, addressing every need in advance. Every detail has been thought of from checking in and out, directions from the airport, offers to fetch you from the airport if you don't want to take a taxi (easy and safe.) Payment and rental details were fulfilled exactly as promised.

The unit is as nice as it appears in the pictures. I will stay again!

Home Away frome Home

  • 5 of 5
My partner Philip and I needed a break and chill out. This unit is very comfortable and very accommodating, and we felt we were in the heart of it all. Even though a beautiful beach was nearby, we found that using the amenities suited us better. From the rooftop infinity pool to the hot tub, we didn't even have to leave our community to sit back, relax and enjoy.
We would highly recommend this home away from home and undoubtedly will be staying again.

So thankful for this place!

  • 5 of 5
First of all, a big thank you to Michael for rescuing us from a less desirable rental situation.

The location is ideal. You are back just far enough to have a quiet retreat, but close enough to have a beautiful view and be able to enjoy all downtown has to offer. You can easily walk to anything you need or want in 10 minutes. There are artists galleries, restaurants, sports bars, coffee shops, street vendors, etc. all within 10 minutes walking. We have paid special attention to accessibility for wheelchairs and you definitely can't go everywhere downtown, but there are several blocks right around this complex that are completely accessible. The elevator and ramps are well situated, and the door to the unit is large enough to maneuver a chair. There is a nice variety of restaurant choices and entertainment to fit any taste withing just a few block.

The unit itself is very comfortable. The furnishings are upscale and the kitchen well appointed. We stay for 5-7 weeks each year and like to do some of the cooking ourselves. We had everything we needed and appreciated the full sized side by side refrigerator with in door ice and water. It was also nice to have laundry in the unit and a garbage chute just down the hall. There is plenty of built in storage and a large shower with rain head. My favorite part of the unit however is the comfortable king sized bed. It is definitely one of the most comfortable beds and restful night's sleep I've had while traveling. The unit is very quiet.

The pool area is amazing. The view can't be beat. Definitely a photographer's dream. You can see beautiful sunsets, the pirate ship, the Marietta Islands and the historic church crown while swimming in the salt water roof top pool or one of the two hot tubs. The BBQ area is easy to reserve and registering your guests is a nice change from the resorts in Nuevo where guests are discouraged or forbidden.

The management team is available anytime you need. The building is well secured, with code cards for the main doors, security guards that are attentive, and open visible common areas. The owner and management team went above and beyond for us and their kindness cannot be represented in words. And yet, that willingness to go above and beyond what is the standard is exactly why I would recommend this place so highly. The location, amenities, and accessibility are all worth bragging about, but the character of the owners and staff are what have me writing my first ever review.
