Icon Vallarta is the newest and most luxurious destination in Puerto Vallarta. In fact, it was featured on the April 2010 cover of Architectural Digest for its design by award-winning firm Arquitectonica and unique style of Philippe Starck. In keeping with the exterior, the interior of the condo was professionally designed and is accessible by private elevator. It features a large leather sofa in the den with an entertainment system which includes an Apple TV with over 50 movies and an Iphone/Ipod docking station. The den and bedrooms are equipped with flat screen TVs and cable. There's also a computer with wireless access to the entire condo and a phone with free long distance to the US & Canada. The bed in the 2nd bedroom can be separated into 2 twin beds. The sliding glass doors open to an amazing view of Banderas Bay, downtown Vallarta as well as the mountains. The view at night with the lights of old town light up is just as beautiful as the daytime views.

My wife, our son, and I live in Texas. The profile picture is from Oct 2010. My wife took our son to the beach, and they found a baby sea turtle and a nest full of eggs. The 'Ecological Police' are always notified, so they can come and take the eggs and turtles and release them at night so the birds don't eat them. We were at the condo in Nov 2010 and they found 75 baby sea turtles which they allowed us to help release that evening just right down the beach from Icon.
My wife is from Guadalajara, Mexico, and her family went to Puerto Vallarta every summer when she was a kid. She took me there several years ago, and I fell in love with it so much that we decided to buy a place. Icon was the obvious choice for location, quality, and views.
It's amazing how transforming it is when you experience being in the condo. When you have views of the ocean, the mountains, and the marina, it's hard to feel rushed to go outside. The view at night is incredibly romantic. Tower 2 is positioned so that you get the best of all worlds. From the front of the condo, you can see Old Vallarta, the mountains, and the ocean whether you are on the balcony or inside of the condo. From the back, you can see the marina whether you are on the balcony or inside. It's a lot of fun to just watch the cruise ships come and go as well as the pirate ships. When we bought our condo, we bought it for us to use as a second home and not as 'a rental.' We wanted it to be a luxury get-a-away for ourselves and not just a place to stay. So, we used a professional designer to design it and chose high quality and designer furnishings. We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do!
