This unit features comfortable yet high style design with all the modern conveniences. This 11th floor balcony captures an incredible ocean view, and seen to your left is the curve of the Bay of Banderas which provides a spectacular 'city lights' view at night.
Fireworks shot from the Pirate ship and hotels can be seen from the balcony several nights most weeks. A second balcony shared by the two rear bedrooms provides an impressive view of the Sierra Madre mountains and city.
Guests say the photos do not do the unit justice! The apartment is appointed with cable TVs in all 3 bedrooms plus a 40' flatscreen in the living room. Original artwork and high quality prints decorate the walls. All three walk-in showers are unusually deep and roomy, and two of the three bathrooms feature twin sinks. The kitchen is amply appointed with high quality cookware and probably every tool or amenity you have at home.

Maid service during your stay is available for a nominal charge as is grocery shopping in advance of you arrival. One underground garage parking space is allotted for those who have a car. There is easy access to both taxis and buses in front of the building, and building staff or security personnel will summon a taxi right up to the lobby for you. Local property management service is only a phone call away in the event you have any needs at all.
The Grand Venetian has excellent features. You proceed up a beautiful winding driveway lined with urns of flowering vines from the street up to the condo tower at the ocean. A waterfall wall greets you at the entrance or the drive around at the tower entrance. You then enter the building into the open air, high tropical style lobby. Enjoy the property's sprawling river-like infinity pools with hot tubs as well as the condo tower's own pool, all oceanfront. There is an excellent sit-down pool side restaurant and bar, and waiter service pool side with ample menu. You can use the Condo's game room with card and pool table, a 12 seat movie room, fitness center, and small business center with computers and printers.
The Grand Venetian neighbors the Peninsula Plaza on one side within an easy 8 minute walk that houses a Starbucks, De Santos (mediterranean food) restaurant, several restaurants of various ethnic themes, a night club, ice cream and gelato parlor, a video casino, several banks, occasional live entertainment in the courtyard, jewelry and upscale clothes stores and gift shops.
On the opposite side is the Holiday Inn, which can be accessed within a minute through the beach side entrance, and has several indoor and outdoor restaurants and bars, two tour companies, a convenience store, and water sports sales. Within a 5 minute taxi ride or short walk are several grocery stores, a Sam's Club, Wal-Mart, the Liverpool (highend) mall, and many more stores, restaurants and activities.

Why Puerto Vallarta, Mexico? No other destination has the charm of the 'boardwalk' Malecon area, and all the activities of a friendly yet happening city yet the relaxed and peaceful nature of a beach resort. There are ample restaurants at every price point and many nationalities. Enjoy the city or the marina area, or just stay home and take advantage of the amazing property, balconies and apartment.
Shop for beautiful items including pewter, ceramic, and silver. Enjoy the many tour companies providing great venues with excellent customer service and attention to detail. Most visitors to this city become enchanted regulars. It's just not your ordinary location or vacation!
I fell in love with Puerto Vallarta upon my first visit in 2002. I returned in 2003 for several weeks and again in 2005 for several weeks. To this day, the city feels like 'home' with its friendly people, both locals and American and Canadian tourists and owners. The charm of the city, Malecon and Old Town are uniquely its own. You can find great food at every price point, great art, lots of activities, or just hang out on property and enjoy the pools, balconies and views.
One day I would like to be a 'snow bird' and spend my winters here. I could also see being a 6 or 9 month resident as well. I chose this property for the location on the hotel zone which you gives you a very deep sand beach and spacious grounds, and the landscaping here with its flowering bushes, palm trees and manicured grass which most hotel zone condos do not have. I love our location between the Peninsula Plaza's restaurants and stores and those of the Holiday Inn. Our 'river-like' pools can't be beat and its a beautiful setting for a vacation or to live.
A good friend of mine is professional interior designer and helped to choose the wall colors, fabrics, art and furnishings. We went for a more stylish and upscale look that is still comfortable and with a down to earth feel. We wanted it to be more of a special experience and more like a 'W' hotel than of a typical beachside apartment. The result is a condo where you feel comfortable to put your feet up, yet you enjoy the look, feel and art around you. Modern amenities also make it special with TVs in every room, a Bose bluetooth wireless speaker to connect to your personal devices and music, internet phone for free calling to the US and Canada, and a kitchen that's probably as well stocked as yours at home.
