Puerto Vallarta Condo Rental Photos and Description

One of Zona Romantica's newest building (2012) steps to everything in old town!

TREAT YOURSELF TO A FABULOUS STAY IN PUERTO VALLARTA! A 5+ star accommodation........from as little as $175/night, depending on the season.

'Vallarta Vida', is Romatic Zona's newest loft style 1700 sq. ft. 2 bedroom Penthouse condo in the heart of Old Town Vallarta. Located on a quiet street just a leisurely stroll away from the very best restaurants, bars, boutiques & other shopping to suit every taste, palette and budget, 'Vallarta Vida' is located in the Old Vallarta you hear about with its cobbled streets and red brick rooftops covered with bouganvillia of every variety. Just 3 short blocks to the ocean and the 'Malecon', PV's famous ocean side esplanade, you will enjoy an easy walk to everything that Vallarta has to offer with no hills to climb and absolutely no need to drive or taxi.

'Vallarta Vida's' interior space and furnishings were professionally designed by Paul K Stewart of Projekt Home www.projekthome.ca, Toronto, Canada, and handcrafted by local Mexican Artisans.

The fully equipped cook's kitchen includes a centre island gathering spot with 5 stools, granite countertops, stainless steel cook top, oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, wine frig & micro-wave oven.

Adjoining the kitchen is the tastefully and comfortably furnished family room, a perfect reading/quiet area or gathering spot for guests while you test your culinary skills in the kitchen. A walk-out to a comfortably furnished patio provides inviting moments of quiet escape as you enjoy the mountainous vistas.

The 12' ceilings adds to the spaciousness of the combined living/dining room providing the appropriate setting for a magnificent dining table with comfortable seating for 10-12. It is the perfect setting for those quieter more intimate evenings for you and yours or for those larger dinner parties with family and friends.

After dinner, continue your evening by retreating to the adjoining custom designed and comfortably appointed living space, the perfect gathering spot. An entertainment system with a 52' TV (Shaw Cable & a blue ray player included) will provide you with background music to enhance the atmosphere or high definition television viewing. A surround sound bar is also available allowing you to plug in your smart phones to access your personal music. A few steps onto the balcony exposes you to the lights and the near & distant sounds of residential Old Vallarta.

Both bedrooms are furnished with locally crafted headboards & bedside tables highlighted by artistic hand blown glass lamps, clock radios with IPod docking stations & 42' TV's. Plenty of closet space and ensuite baths featuring marble floors, showers & countertops will add to the enjoyment of your vacation.

The Master bedroom has the advantage of a walkout to a large balcony shared with the living room.

A 2 piece guest bath adjoins the living areas for the convenience of your guests. Both sofas provide additional sleeping accommodation.

The lighting features throughout have been designed to enhance your desired atmosphere, with most lights on dimmers. Each room has ceiling fans and air conditioning units for your comfort.

A stacked front loading washer/dryer are included and there is an underground parking spot that can accommodate 2 cars parked in tandem.

The controlled access security includes entry intercom, security service and cameras. A water purification system means no bottles of water required, drink right from the tap. Free local, Canada & US telephone service as well as high speed wifi is also provided.

The breath taking 360 degree view from the rooftop terrace, which is just 1 level away, encompasses the ocean, downtown Vallarta, the magnificent mountains and lush jungle. The infinity pool, 2 hot tubs, fire pit and 3 separate living areas are there for your vacation enjoyment.

Come experience Old Town Vallarta with 'Vallarta Vida' as you home!

About Harvey Malinsky

We are both professionals, born and raised in Toronto, and enjoying life as it should be enjoyed with children, grandchildren, extended family and friends. We own and love our warm comfortable home in the heart of the city and truly enjoy all of the amenities that are so easily accessible to us.

Our home in Puerto Vallarta is a reflection of our Toronto life style and enjoyment which we would like to share with others. If you are looking for a very special home for your escape, either alone or with family and/or friends, you do not need to look further. You have found it with us.

Harvey Malinsky purchased this condo in 2012

Why Harvey Malinsky chose Puerto Vallarta

If there's one street in Zona Romantica that's made for shoppers, it's Basilio Badillo found between Pino Suárez and Insurgentes.

Discover this local secret where you can find the very best in art, the most captivating jewelry (Cielito Lindo and A Touch of Gold), great clothes, scarves and handbags (Que Mona), lovely manta and colorful talavera and so much more.

This street has always had the moniker “Restaurant Row” since, even to this day, you won’t go hungry on Basilio Badillo. Popular places, ethnic eateries, local comidas corridas (with a daily menu at a low price), bakeries, seafood and meat, it’s all there.

Take your time to explore this trendy neighborhood. You may find yourself coming here time and again. No taxis needed unless you are venturing off for a major excursion.

From Vallarta 399, you are 3 blocks to Los Muertos Beach and the Malecon, where you can enjoy a leisurely stroll along the ocean to the newer part of PV.

Here are a few quotes from travel sites that reflect our sentiments about Zona Romantica.

...“There is a special spirit in the air, which will add something special into your heart. Well .. everywhere :-)” ...

“I love this area of Puerto Vallarta. It is the funky & eclectic area that many visitors miss. It is a MUST SEE area of town, Easily walk-able, safe and full of great restaurants, bars, cafes, shopping, galleries, beach bars, you name it.... it is all here. Great hotels and vacation rentals... so you will not even have to take a taxi to get to cool places. Come and explore the coolest area of Puerto Vallarta.”...

“This place is like New Orleans French Quarter. During the day it's bustling with workers and the business of the city. At night, the lights give it an atmosphere that lends to romantic walks and visits to restaurants and bars you may have missed during the day.”

What makes this condo unique

The roof top terrace and with its amazing amenities and mesmerizing views feels like an extension of our home being accessible within less than 1 minute by way of 1 flight of stairs or an elevator ride. Our WIFI is often available on the rooftop.

Walk out the door and you are on a street with no inclines.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Appreciated my stay at your wonderful Condo, everything, including the rooftop amenities with the infinity pool, the hot tubs, the people, the closeness to everything.....all of it exceeded my expectations. The Condo was so comfortable, filled with the comforts of home, that we ended up spending a more time relaxing and unwinding inside, than we thought we would, enjoying the comforts of your home. It truly was an amazing 2 week escape.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

I traveled to PV with my wife and 3 kids. We typically stay in resort type properties out of convenience, but really wanted to try something different that would allow us to experience the local culture. I stumbled upon this unit and contacted Harvey, who was great about providing information and setting everything up. The pictures on the website are accurate, but don't do the unit justice. The unit is very spacious and proximately located to everything that we wanted to do. It is 1 block from the main thoroughfare and the bus stop. The location was just close enough to all the hustle and bustle, yet removed enough were we could experience some peace and quiet. We felt very safe as a family walking around and ventured out via the bus on several ocassions to see different parts of PV. I highly recommend Las Animas for a change of pace from nearby Los Muertos if you want to try a different beach. Overall, the unit exceeded our expectations and served as baseline for a memorable vacation.

Vallarta Vida is excellent!

  • 5 of 5

Vallarta Vida was an amazing experience. I've been to PVR 3 other times, but have always stayed at a resort - this was my first experience veering away from the resort atmosphere, and I have to say I am very happy I did it.

Vallarta Vida is in the heart of Old Town, where there is a lot of great energy. In addition, you can enjoy the amentities of the propery and watch it all from a birds eye. The rooftop terrace, exclusive service, location, and luxury feel were all worth it!

Our stay went flawless and I will definately return for another visit. Very beautiful rental proper and I highly recommend.

3 Discriminating Guys, Lovely Condo

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days at this beautiful condo. The decor, amenities and fittings made us feel as if we were at home and not in a rental. The pictures do not translate the open spaces, tall ceilings and the attention to every detail.

The condo building itself is wonderful, secure and private. The roof top pool, jacuzzis and multiple sitting areas are so relaxing with a beautiful view of the bay, jungle and surrounding neighborhood. The entry lobby offers sitting areas around a water feature with a lovely sculpture.

The location is within a few blocks of the beach, restaurants, art galleries and all the nightlife you can stand.

The owner, local management company and building staff are very kind, professional and easily accessible.

Around the corner is the Dante Art Gallery with a lovely restaurant space above. The food was wonderful and the owner and her daughter are wonderfully kind.

We guarantee you will not be disappointed!

Outstanding Condo in Old Vallarta

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Villa Vallarta and hated to leave after just a few nights. Harvey was easy to work with and the team on site at Vallarta Vida is equally as friendly and helpful giving us great tips. The condo is immaculate with high end furnishings, has a supply of beach towels which is incredibly helpful, and wonderfully comfortable beds. The use of a washer/dryer made packing easy. The location is perfect - a few blocks from the beach, steps from countless restaurants, yet facing the mountains so there is a real element of privacy and tranquility in the middle of the city. We walked to Playa los Muertos every day, rented Jet Ski's with the boys, went zip lining (loved Los Veranos and pick up site is 2 blocks from the condo), and walked the beautiful malecon. A beautiful view of the bay and old town is just a flight of steps away to the rooftop. The rooftop deck and pool is jaw dropping and beyond what pictures can show. Our 7 and 9 year old boys loved the infinity pool. Vallarta Vida was the perfect place for us to explore old town PV and the surrounding region. We would highly recommend it!

3 gals, perfect home, perfect location, perfect 2 weeks.

  • 5 of 5

Stunning, elegant, exquisite are just a few words to describe my recent stay at the Vallarta Vida condo complex. Our penthouse condo (#604) featured an open floor plan with a large living room, dining area and kitchen opening onto a spacious terrace which faced the mountains giving us incredible sunset views nightly. Our luxurious 2 bedroom, 2 bath units had impressive high ceilings and the décor took advantage of all the beautiful Mexican colors with authentic artisans’ pieces throughout. As well, we were provided with air conditioning and ceiling fans throughout, purified water system, private laundry room with a full size washer & dryer, free local and long distance phone service and a fabulous gourmet kitchen with all the conveniences one could possibly want.

On the roof top with its infinity pool was the perfect place to relax each afternoon after daily outings into the heart of PV. The roof top (whether in the pool or not) provides dramatic views of the ocean, Puerto Vallarta and mountains while one sunbaths on the open air terrace or lounges in the covered patio areas. The condo complex itself is located in the heart of the old town district allowing us to walk everywhere and take advantage of excellent restaurants, night life, cultural events, galleries, clothing and handicraft stores, as well as the famous Malecón (promenade).

Serenity awaits you in this light-filled penthouse condo and you will instantly fall in love with this little piece of heaven in Puerto Vallarta’s Zona Romantica. It is a vacation I will not soon forget and it is all due to my glorious accommodations and the warm friendly atmosphere I enjoyed daily everywhere I went. Take yourself there someday you will not regret it – Susan Linton

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Whether you want the beach, a pool, restaurants, or to cook your meals this place is perfect. 2-3 blocks to the beach and great restaurants. People are so friendly and I felt so safe in the area - even walking alone at night.

The condo is gorgeous. It's clean, fully stocked with laundry facilities in the unit, and everything you need. Lots of room for the entire family, great views if the mountainside from the balcony, Canadian TV, wifi and even local and North America calling for free. What hotel can you get that at?

The pool area was far superior to any resort. Quiet, comfy chairs, umbrellas for shade, sitting areas partially covered, tables to enjoy and outdoor meal and of course AMAZING views of Bandaras Bay. Even saw whales splashing and playing one day. Oh and I can't forget the sunsets. Absolutely stunning.

I'm usually a cruiser and hate all inclusive resorts. This was the perfect blend. Did a few excursions close by (taxis are cheap), ate where we wanted and when we wanted and walked to great shopping and beaches. No schedule made condo vacationing worth while.

I plan to go back again and maybe for longer. Or more often.

Thanks for such a great vacation. I think I'm now in love with PV.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your time with Natasha and her family in our vacation home. Maybe next time we will be able to share a little more time together over a frozen margherita in one of your newly discovered favorite restaurants. Look forward to having you back.
