Fabulous Oceanfront Condo 'Casa De Apollo'

Space 1,450 sq ft
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

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

This beautiful beachfront condo (Casa de Apollo) has just been remodeled in Mexican style, with modern amenities. This 1450 square foot condo is located right on Los Muertos Beach, the best swimming beach in Puerto Vallarta, where the Rio Cuale River enters Banderas Bay. This charming area is also known as Old Town or Zona Romantica.

You will have two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a dining room, a living room, and a fully-equipped kitchen at your disposal. The living room opens onto a large terrace and a breathtaking and completely unobstructed view of the entire Banderas Bay. You will be right on the beach with restaurants, shops, galleries, and nightlife within just a few blocks of our front door.

Our condo has two air-conditioners, four ceiling fans, three phones (with answering machine), and three satellite TVs (much of which is in English) along with two DVD players. You also will have a CD player in the living room.

Of course, the terrace is ideal for watching the dolphins and whales in the Bay, as well as the “fishing” pelicans and terns. The beach also offers parasailing, fishing excursions, whale watching tours, banana boat rides, snorkeling, and bay cruises.

You will be so close to anything you might want or need (including a food marts on the block), there is really no need for a rental car. Downtown Puerto Vallarta is a five minute walk along the newly constructed extension to the famous Malecon (waterfront walkway).

Villas Vista del Sol has a strong reputation as the best kept and managed condominium complex located on Los Muertos Beach. You'll have 24 hour security, a very large heated roof top pool, an excellent restaurant on the beach and palapas directly in front of the building with food and bar service. Washer and dryer facilities are located in the building for your personal use, and six day-a-week maid service is included. There is even wired and wireless Internet service in the condo.

With all to see and do, you should greatly enjoy your stay at Casa de Apollo!

About Greg

I've owned my condo for ten years now and treat it like I live there full time! I spend my vacations in Casa de Apollo and love every minute of it...and you will too!

Greg purchased this condo in 2007

What makes this condo unique

I just love sitting on the large balcony with wine or a Corona and staring out onto the bay, with the sailboats and crashing waves. There's nothing more peaceful to me.

We were so thrilled to rent this oecanfront condo from Greg for 2 weeks recently. We've rented other condos at the Vista del Sol, but this was the first time we had ocean frontage; so interesting to watch the day come alive with a certain rhythm that becomes daily entertainment. A nice way to relax with Margaritas in hand. This condo is fully equipped with kitchen supplies for cooking and bathroom necessities. Greg responded quickly with any questions I had. You just can't beat the location for access to the Malecon, the Isla Rio Cuale and to Old Town. Tremendously good restaurants and street food in every direction! I'd rent this again in a heartbeat; thanks Greg!

Very casual and comfortable place tastefully decorated. We loved it!!! The owner is a pleasure to deal with and wants you to enjoy your stay. We are absolutely coming back!

Casa De Apollo is Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Greg's condo for two weeks and loved every minute of our stay. The location is perfect, oceanfront, 5th floor and you can spend hours sitting on the large balcony listening to the ocean or watching the activity along the malecon. The pool is located on the roof and is lovely with amazing views.

The condo is very comfortable, has everything you need and we loved the Mexican decor and artwork. Located in Old Town, it's a perfect location with so many amazing restaurants to choose from. We especially loved Kaiser Maximilian, Barcelona Tapas, Fajita Republic, La Palapa to name just a few of the great restaurants. Wandering the streets of Old Town is fun, with so many lovely shops with amazing bargains.

Greg is great to deal with and was very responsive to any questions during the rental process. Muchas Gracias Greg for allowing us to spend time in your condo!

Love Greg's condo. We stay for 2 months and wish we could stay longer. Very comfortable home away from home. Greg is great to deal with and gets back to us or the adm office quickly. We especially love all the cook ware in the condo, as staying for 2 months, we cook in a lot. As soon as we leave the condo, can't wait to get back.

Perfection and Bliss

  • 5 of 5

I know this building well, I was very eager to rent an oceanfront unit. Our trip was last minute and by luck I managed to get this beautiful unit for a week. First dealing with the owner was a joy, he responded quickly to questions and was extremely gracious. The lovely condo had everything, charm, and the most comfortable king sized bed, which is a miracle for Mexico. Sitting on the balcony that stretches across the living room and master bedroom looking at the ocean and listening to the waves has got to be the best place to be, the condo has everything you could need, it is located right in the center of restaurants and a great and interesting neighbourhood. Right on the beautiful beach. The security is top notch and the staff respond to any need or questions quickly, The weather was extremely hot while we were there and we never turned on the air conditioner at all, there was no need, with the oceanside sliders open and the fans on the condo was delightfully cool. In the evening you can watch the people stroll by on the new Malecon (boardwalk) below, but it is not noisy, at night all you hear is the waves, there are no pounding night clubs so sleep is blissful, The pictures dont do it justice, this place has it all! I cant think of anything negative at all, except I wish I owned it!

We have been renting Casa de Apollo for four years. This time we spent five weeks and think we might extend our next visit to six weeks. It is a very beautiful condo, decorated with much love. The vistas are magnificant. Great location!
