"Quaint little place"

  • 4 of 5

Exactly what the picture shows - very compact inside...we ended up storing our luggage in the shower and it worked! All good and close to the Malecon. The only negative - No Toilet Seat:(

Excellent location

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our week at Le P'tit Bonheur. The futon was OK, comfort wise. We were ready for a real bed after a week. The place is very small - something like 120 sq ft (we stored our suitcases in the shower) but it is workable as, like most tourists, we were out all day and only back at the apartment for a drink on the patio before bed. Some of the items supplied were a little lacking: Full towel sets would be better- 2 large towels and one hand towel was supplied; in the kitchen one massive saucepan and a frying pan are what you get for cooking with (a smaller pot would make boiling or poaching eggs easier); no lime juicer!; no garbage bags were supplied. There is a long clothes line on the patio which was perfect for drying our beach towels and bathing suits etc.

Outside of the apartment there is a small patio with several plants - there was a cat pooping/peeing in the biggest one each day (there was a lot of old feces in this plant pot) - stinky and gross! We cleaned out the poop and put stones from the beach in the pot so the cat used a smaller pot... so we added stones to them all. It seems to have worked and makes sitting on the patio much more pleasant.

The location can't be beat! There's a churro stand right on the corner every night for a little treat, the mercado is steps away, the beach is a short 2 minute walk away, many many restaurants less than 1 minute walk away. On the scale of PV - it was $100M for a cab to the marina and $150M to the airport. It is very easy to find but is on the 4th floor so be prepared if you have bad knees.

Getting and returning the key was very simple and the lady meeting us at the beginning of our week was early even (as were we, so that worked out perfectly!).

Eric is easy to get a hold of and responds promptly to messages.

Nice place to stay // Buen lugar para quedarse

  • 5 of 5

Very neat and well-maintained dwelling. We spent a week in comfort and it has all amenities that we required. My son and I went to Puerto Vallarta to Scuba and returned to the apartment for relaxation. Everything worked fine and is two blocks from the beach making it a perfect location for couples as well. When we return to Puerto Vallarta we will be staying at Le Petit Bonheur again. Clean, Safe and comfortable for two people with excellent location. Walking distance to everything you need (beach, entertainment, supermarket, bus / taxi stop).
