About Owner Stephen Schlanser and Manager Wes Green

I’m a Glass Artist from Southern California. I live part time in Puerto Vallarta. I purchased these two penthouse units after visiting PV for 6 years then deciding I want to have a place of my own, situated high enough that I would be able to view the city and the bay by day and by night, and still close to Restaurants, Galleries and Services. After dining at nearby restaurants and experiencing their view, I decided that this was the place for me to get away and enjoy a beautiful part of Mexico where I could enjoy the true feeling of Old World Mexico very comfortably in this 10 unit condo. I hired and gave free rein to a very talented local interior designer Eric Lagasca and contractor to oversee the completion of these units with a goal of creating a sophisticated contemporary feel in the midst of Old Town Vallarta. I hope you will enjoy my home as much as I do.

Owner Stephen Schlanser and Manager Wes Green purchased this condo in 2013

Why Owner Stephen Schlanser and Manager Wes Green chose Playas Gemelas

The view from this property is one of the nicest in Vallarta. With two popular restaurants only feet away, as well, there are always cabs available, or they can be called for a pick up.

What makes this condo unique

The Rooftop Deck is this property's bonus amenity. Have a Romantic, Al Fresco Dinner on the grill and watch the Sunset, take a dip in the Heated Jacuzzi, gaze at the Stars and take it all in.

Amazing 5+ start Penthouse with stunning views of Old Town and the bay

  • 5 of 5
This is the 2nd time I stay in one of Stephen's amazing penthouses. Every luxury amenity is taken into consideration when this beautiful suite was designed. You will fall in love with the views, the amazing roof top terrace, private 12 person hot tub and BBQ grill. All private. I consider either penthouse my home away from home when in Puerto Vallarta.
The service from local property manager Eric including the concierge service is impeccable. Don't forget to sign the guestbook.

I highly recommend anyone who is looking for an amazing get away in PV to consider this luxury penthouse.

Spacious Condo with a View

  • 5 of 5
What a great place!!

The unit itself is very spacious and very well designed. The kitchen is perfect for both a short stay or longer term (where you might want to cook).

The living room AND both bedrooms have an amazing view of the old town and the bay. Full glass doors allow you to see the town without being necessarily hearing it. The master sits in the corner of the building, so you get a bonus view of the the surrounding hills. The master also comes with an amazing shower.

The real gem is the private (only accessible by this unit) roof top deck. Plenty of sun and shade along with a table, chairs, and several lounges. Perfect for watching the sunset! Totally peaceful.

Getting to the beach is a short walk. The hill can be a little steep, but taxi service is easy and very cheap (~$5).

For those who need to be connected, the Internet access was plenty fast. Both a US and local phone were provided.

The unit was spotless when we arrived, and the check in process was super easy.

Owner's Response: Bill, thank you so much for the excellent review. We are very pleased you found it to be so beautiful, we tend to agree.
Maybe next year you can return and experience the other penthouse unit with a slightly diffent but equally impressive view from the master bedroom.

Undoubtedly the best vacation rental I've ever stayed in!

Undoubtedly the best vacation rental I've ever stayed in!

If you want to vacation in PV, not stay in a hotel but enjoy 5 star accommodations, this is most definitely the place for you! Three friends and I stayed at the PH condo for a week in January and couldn't have asked for more. The condo itself is beautiful, the furnishings and artwork are extremely tasteful and the rooftop terrace with infinity jacuzzi were the icing on the cake. We spent a lot of time on the beach and doing some excursions but ended every day and night in the jacuzzi with a drink watching the sunset.

The pictures don't do the property justice and it exceeded our expectations all around. Eric, the house manager was kind enough to stock the kitchen with groceries and libations for us so we could start our vacation off right with homemade guacamole and a frozen margarita.

I will absolutely return and really couldn't have asked for more!

Terrific condo

  • 5 of 5
My family of five (two adults, three kids ages 20, 18 and 15) rented both penthouse apartments owned by Stephen for the week over Christmas. These apartments are really beautiful, spacious, nicely furnished, well equipped, have everything you would want or need to enjoy a week in PV. We love the location, the views are spectacular, its a short walk to the beach or into town. We never got on a bus and rarely took a cab anywhere. You are close to lots of great restaurants and shopping. The owner and the manager, as well as the onsite building super, were all very very responsive to any questions or issues we had before or during our stay. The manager met us at the apartment upon our arrival and took us thru it to go over everything. The rental manual that is provided also was a very detailed, useful resource which includes restaurant recommendations that we followed. The maid comes three times a week and was really a lovely human being. She arrives midday and stays 2 or 3 hours; she is inobtrusive and it is during a time that you would likely be out and about anyway. We used the kitchen to cook some meals and everything was there that you might need to do that. Everything is brand new and high tech and works beautifully. There is A/C if you need it (although mostly we didn't use it). The property was clean and impeccably maintained. I would definitely recommend this condo to any friend or relative. The listing is accurate regarding location, appearance and amenities. We loved the rooftop area which is large, and includes a Jacuzzi you can heat up if you want to and great lounge chairs for sunbathing.

Owner's Response: Nana, We are extremely happy that you and your family enjoyed the two condos. Eric has told me what a wonderful family you have and we truly appreciated the opportunity to make your Holiday Vacation in Puerto Vallarts one to remember and hopefully you are able to repeat in the coming years. Regards, Stephen

Amazing 5+ start Penthouse with stunning views of Old Town and the bay

  • 5 of 5
I spoke with the managers Wes and Eric who answered any question I had before I even booked then throughout the entire process they made it so easy and relaxed. I was met by Eric on site who gave me a tour of the penthouse and gave recommendations of great restaurants nearby (follow his advice). The penthouse is decorated with style and flare that you will not find most places. Ask about the story behind the shovel hanging on the wall... the best art piece in my opinion. The owner of the penthouse has some of his own glass art pieces which are stunning. I think at 2300 sq ft that number is conservative because this penthouse feels and looks much much larger. The kitchen is a chef's dream. For an all out experience hire a local chef for minimal fee to come and cook for you. The living areas are very large and excellent for entertaining guests or just relaxing all by yourself while taking in the stunning view of Old Town off your full length terrace (day or night). The master bedroom has a very large walk in closet that leads into the ensuite washroom which is a dream come true. The shower, well can easily fit 6 people if you wanted, beautifully designed with bay windows that open up to let the sun in while you shower or if you are feeling daring. In the living area the big screen TV has Shaw Direct satellite with Canadian, American and other channels so for anyone traveling from Canada or the US you won't miss out on any of your favorite programs. Then there is the roof top terrace which is strictly private attached to your penthouse only. It has a very large sun deck with chairs and lounges to entertain guests, a dining table, privacy curtain, BBQ and not to mention the massive hot tub that has the standard jets but then also has the high speed therapy jets that really oxygenate the water. You can fit 10-12 people very easy in there.. The view from this terrace and the hot tub is just breath taking.
To walk to Old Town it is just a short walk down some steps.. about 5 minutes or you can take a taxi which is usually parked 1 minute away from the condo building. To return I myself personally always took a taxi but you can walk it but with taxis so economical in Puerto Vallarta I recommend taking a taxi back up to the penthouse. The penthouse is located just up the hill a little at the base of the mountain, something which was a concern at first but since this was my 3rd time traveling to PV I knew the area and I recommend it. I will be returning

Owner's Response: David, thank you so much for such an outstanding review. I hope people don’t think that I wrote the review for you:) Being that this is a brand new property on the market it gives me great pleasure to see that with the help of Eric, my designer/decorator that we were able to pull it off and create a living space that causes one to ask themself, “hmm, do we want to go to the beach or out to dinner, or do we just want to spend all of out time here at the condo?” You pretty much covered every aspect of what makes staying here a wonderful experience. Gracias!

The Perfect Location in PV!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just spent nine days at Condo Cielo. Very tastefully decorated with a great kitchen and wonderful wrap around balcony where you will spend most of your time. Two king size beds, great Wi-Fi and satellite TV. Excellent guest manual provided with summaries of restaurants, markets and ‘how to’ operate all of the technology throughout the condo. Room ACs plus fans were great. There is purified water to the fridge but we used bottled water and had no health issues. Maid came every two days and was very efficient. The hillside location offers the perfect balance for scenic views of ‘old’ Puerto Vallarta and the ocean while still being a walk-able distance to the Romantic Zone. Walking downtown is easy (10 minutes to shops, restaurants) and then take a cheap taxi back (40 pesos or $3). Away from the noise of the Malecon, especially at night. This is a quiet location that lets you experience the ‘real’ PV. Vista Grill is right behind the condo but the music and diners could prove distracting to some until 11 pm at night but was not bothersome to us. GREAT FOOD at this restaurant!! We ate six of our nine dinners at the Vista Grill. Condo is safe and secure. We’ll definitely return again!
