About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Villa Vista Del Sol is located on the beautiful Banderas Bay. Its at the end Malecon within walking distance of entertainment, the best shopping, art galleries, restaurants and the charming cobblestoned old town. There is a large grocery story at the Northern end of the Malecon or a deli combined with a bakery, a wine shop, and fresh produce a block down the street. A new store is opening close by thatwill carry a large variety of necessities and will includes familiar imported products (personally, I prefer to find the Mexican versions of the same thing for a fraction of the price at the store at the end of the Malecon or other optional Mexican grocery stores).

The complex is approximately 25 years old, equipped with an elevator and the staff is friendly and professional. The majority of the staff speak English. Maid service is provided except Sunday's and Holidays.

There is an in-house restaurant and Oceanfront Bar. You can eat dinner under the palapas on the beach. Room service can be arranged.

We have a beautiful swimming pool on the tenth floor with a covered area for non-sun worshippers and plenty of loungers to lay on. It is wonderful to come up during the day, have a swim and watch the birds, or catch the spectacular sunsets in the evening.

The condominium is perfect for four people. We have a king-size bed in one bedroom and two twin beds which can be put together to make a king in the other bedroom. This is a marvelous place to come and have fun and relax. There is always something happening and something to do. In the alternative, if you prefer to read, or lay on the beach and do nothing, this is the place!

No one is a stranger here. You will always bump into someone who will tell you what adventure they had that day, and how you can do the same. You will not want to go home!

About Colleen Willmann

We live in the Bay Area. We have had the condo for about 10 years and we love it!

In this particular picture, we are at the beautiful botanical gardens just South of town and having a wonderful time! It's a lovely place to explore and learn while enjoying the beauty of it and have a nice lunch overlooking all the jungle.

Colleen Willmann purchased this condo in 2004

Why Colleen Willmann chose Puerto Vallarta

It was right on the beach, it was within walking distance of everything, it was a spacious condo and it had a real authentic Mexican feel to it which we have kept.

What makes this condo unique

Walk outside and you are immediately on the beach, or at a wonderful restaurant, a great bar, or even shopping at a great boutique, or at a fun flea market! In the evening, you have live entertainment and fireworks on the Malecon! All you have to do is step outside our building...its great! You just couldn't ask for a better location....and location is what it's all about!!!

My husband I recently returned from spending 4 weeks at this property. We loved it! We loved it so much we are making plans to stay next year. Not enough can be said bout the location. Right on the malecon. We saved hundreds of dollars over the month in cab fares. You can walk pretty much anywhere from this location. Thee is even a cute little spa a block away to get a massage, mani, pedi at prices way lower than home. The condo is spacious and well equipped. We even cooked in a couple of nights despite the best restaurants anywhere being footsteps from the door. The rooftop pool is gorgeous. We actually watched whales spouting and rolling from there one afternoon! The front lobby staff were helpful and friendly. My husband and I have been to PV many times at our timeshare, hotels etc. This was the best. Colleen was so helpful giving us information about what's available right in that area. We can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: Oh Merri thank you so much for your gracious review! I am so happy you had such a good time and jealous you got to see the whales! I am always missing them! I have seen Dolphins though and of course plenty of Pelicans, frigates and other birds up there. I look forward to having you and Jack back again. You are delightful guests!!

Fantastic week

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week in Vallarta. This condo is in the absolute best location and has all of the amenities you will need. The rooftop pool is perfect for a quiet escape from the beach with a beautiful view. The restaurant on the beach offers delicious food at amazing prices. You can walk to everything. Highly recommend it!

Super location and lovely complex!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of three (one teenage son came along) and we spent one week off-season in this condo in late August and just couldn't have been more satisfied. Off-season meant that the complex was nearly empty (read: nobody to share the amazing rooftop pool with), the town was more mellow and the Mexican families were on the beach instead of just us tourists! We had plenty of space, all the kitchen amenities we needed to prepare meals, the balcony was nice to sit on to watch the thunder and lightning storms and we could walk everywhere we needed. The owner was friendly and very easy to communicate with and the complex was very secure, clean, friendly and had easy internet access when/if needed. We whole-heartedly recommend your stay here!

We just returned from our trip to PVR and i must say that this is the place to be. This condo had all the comforts of home . The view from the balcony was beautiful and on a clear day you can view a beautiful sunset. The location of this condo is ideal. there are always taxies and public buses nearby if you need them. there is a grocery store three blocks from the condo so with extra hands you won't need a taxi. If you buy american icecream there you're going to pay about twelve dollars for a half galllon, so be careful when buying american products.

we found the price reasonable for Don Julio Tequila there. We brought several bottles home. There is a beach front walkway called the melecon that offers lots of resturants and shops. There are lots of street vendors there so you can expect to be approched often. Enjoy your stay as we have.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a stay at this condo and it

was wonderful! The condo is very comfortably

furnished and equipted. The location is absolutely

fabulous, right at the north end of Los Muertos

beach. Walk to everything, run right along the

beach front! The roof top pool affords terrific views

of the entire area and is long enough to swim laps

in. The building staff is very helpful and

accommodating, as was the owner in making

suggestions about airport taxis and a nearby spa

and grocery store. We'd happily stay there again!
