Overview

Playas Gemelas Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Open-air penthouse apartment at the south end of Puerto Vallarta's Zona Romantica. This modern Mediterranean-style 3-bedroom 3.5-bath apartment sleeps up to 6 people comfortably and offers a sweeping 180-degree view of Banderas Bay.

It’s a 2-minute walk to the beach (1 block--down a set of steps) and just minutes from Puerto Vallarta’s best restaurants. This quiet condo encompasses the entire top floor and is located close enough 'to it all' to be fun and convenient, but far enough to enjoy privacy and relaxation.

There are two master bedrooms, both with king-sized beds, private bathrooms and great ocean views. The third bedroom has three twin beds, two of which can be pushed together to create another king. The third bedroom also has a garden/jungle view with a peek at the ocean and a private bathroom as well. Please email me for a link to more photos and video clips.

Designed by Mexican architect Diego Mendez de las Penas, this one-of-a-kind building offers unobstructed front row seats to some of the world’s most amazing sunsets, viewed from the top floor of an architectural masterpiece. You’ll be inspired.

absolutely the best

  • 5 of 5
I think I've stayed here five times now. After fifteen years of coming to Vallarta twice a year, I've feel like I've found the 'Holy Grail' with Villa Blanca (such a fantastic location) and now, anytime it works with their availability schedule, I choose to stay at the Penthouse. The building is truly distinctive (I've often described it as 'Gaudi-esque') and what makes the Penthouse even more incredible is the beautiful, open-air view.
Villa Blanca is just behind Los Muertos Beach and a VERY short walk to the main restaurants and shops throughout Zona Romantica. Taxicabs are also readily available.
Just got back again and it was great; even had some added updates with the bathrooms and furniture in the bedrooms - very nice. As an added note, the owners and onsite manager are always easy to deal with and helpful.
Anyways... this place is an outstanding deal for the price. Your only regret will be if you DON'T stay here

A Great Month At Villa Blanca

  • 5 of 5
The Villa Blanca Penthouse was our home for the month of October, 2014. The location in "Old Towm" provided walking acess to many beach clubs along Los Muertos beach (Swell was our favorite), a variety of restaurants, and boutique shopping on Basillo Badillo, one of the main streets leading to El Centro. The owner, Sandeep, was professional to work with. He helped us through the deposit/ payment process (Pay Pal), check-in instructions and a list of activities and restaurants.
Upon entering the "open Air" living area I exclaimed with a WOW! We were greeted with a stunning view of the entire Banderas Bay. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking although we dined out most evenings. It was a very hot and humid time of the year. We welcomed the well air conditioned bedrooms at bedtime.
A previous reviewer commented on the number of steps and lack of an elevator. Our group ranged in age from 40-75, all in good health. We used the stairs as daily exercise to justify the ice cream we had nightly. We appreciated the concenience of the washer/dryer.
The staff was outstanding: welcoming and helpful in every way. Jose, Angelina, Chuey, Oswaldo and the night gardener all added their unique touches to make for a clean and well cared for environment.
Guests need to keep in mind this is a rental unit. The owner and staff do everything to deliver what is advertised in the listing. During the past year, we have traveled to 22 countries staying in many rentals. Villa Blanca is one of the best.
If you want to be immersed in PV and Mexican culture, enjoy a great location, be well cared for and have an award winning view, book at Villa Blanca!

Beautiful View With Issues

  • 3 of 5
We spent eight days at this property and I can honestly say that if you are looking for a property with a sweeping view of Banderas Bay this is as good as it gets. The property on arrival had some issues that needed to be attended to. The main part of the living area is not air conditioned so I would advise against staying in Puerto Vallarta at this time of year without central air conditioning. The bedrooms are air conditioned but we had to request that the units be cleaned along with the canopy over the top of the bed. The rooms were spacious and the beds were very comfortable.

The refrigerator leaked into the main living area on occasion and the seal on the freezer was constantly leaving the freezer door open. The rest of the main living area was very comfortable with great views morning and evening.

As a person that likes to give honest evaluations to every property that we rent I must say that stating that the property has no elevator is an understatement. The only access to this property is from the street and there are well over 50 steps that needs to be climbed to get to the property. Not a problem for myself but some in my group had an issue with this. To be fair the owner did offer to move us but that was not practical at the time. I would not recommend this property for those that have problems climbing steps or those over 55+

The stairs leading up to the property that were the buildings responsibility were coated in mold and mildew and were very slippery walking up and down them. The property manager did finally clean them and it made a huge difference.

Again the property has some great advantages like being close to town and breathtaking views. If you do not have an issue with what is written above than this is the place for you.

Owner's Response: We’re sorry this guest didn't more thoroughly enjoy his stay. Over the last ten years we've rented this property to over a thousand guests, and the feedback has always been overwhelmingly positive. Most renters adore Villa Blanca, and many return year after year.

While there were some small issues, each and every one was dealt with quickly and effectively by our full-time, on-site property manager, who later drove this group to Walmart -- in his own car, at no cost.

Every effort was made, and once it became clear that this gentleman could not be placated, we offered a 100% refund, suggested close-by, available locations, and offered our property manager to physically move his luggage for him. He declined.

The renter visited Vallarta during the monsoon season (July to Sep), when it is wet and humid. The short set of steps from the road to the gate can get mossy with the rain. It is moss, not mold or mildew as suggested. The moss was quickly removed.

A majority of our renters are in their 50s and 60s. They know the building doesn't have an elevator (as mentioned in the listing), and they've never had problems. The steps are gentle and easy to climb for most. In fact, in 2004 we bought the condo from an 81 year old Mexican who walked up and down the stairs several times a day.

The penthouse at Villa Blanca is a fabulous experience that over a thousand guests have enjoyed over the last decade. We hope interested parties will read the other reviews and come see for themselves.

Our 2nd time at Penthouse Villa Blanca - We'll be back again.

  • 5 of 5
We loved Penthouse Villa Blanca so much when we stayed several years ago, we had to return. It is the perfect place to come with friends. The common areas are spacious and open with spectacular views, and the three bedrooms are private retreats, also with amazing views. It is perfectly located above Playa Los Muertos, and very close to the many shops, cafes, restaurants, and bars in La Zona Romantica. Since this was our second time, we were familiar enough with the town to explore it more deeply, and when we arrived at the Penthouse, it was great to be greeted by the familiar face of the building manager, Jose Luis, knowing if we needed anything, we could ask him and he would cheerfully help us. We'll be back! Penthouse Villa Blanca feels like our home in PV.

Well-appointed, clean, great location. Perfect PV Condo

  • 5 of 5
What a fantastic place! The condo has everything for a relaxing, easy week at the beach. Super clean and well equipped. Kitchen is fully stocked, beds are comfortable, and the view is incredible. The building manager was very helpful. He spoke English well and helped arrange taxis. The nearby deli is great if you want to bring homemade guacamole and tortillas back to the condo and hang out and watch the sunset. Walk just a bit further to get to the main square with great restaurants.

Love the stylish decor and the unique open air design. So nice to hang out in the living room with the warm ocean breeze and retreat to the bedroom aircon for siesta time. Highly recommend!

my favorite place in PV

  • 5 of 5
I've stayed many, MANY places in PV (hotels, private condos, etc.) and this is my favorite. It is beautiful and has some of the most amazing views of Vallarta and Banderas Bay. Great location, just steps from the beach and a short walk to restaurants and shopping.
All of the bedrooms are large and clean with their own private baths, but the most incredible feature of the penthouse is certainly the spectacular, open living room and terrace.
The owners of the penthouse are extremely easy to deal with and the building has a full-time manager who is very helpful,
