Centro Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 2-5)

MY WONDERFUL OCEANFRONT PENTHOUSE, which I have named Penthouse Of The Dolphins, is directly on the water overlooking the Malecon. It is situated in the middle of Puerto Vallarta two blocks from the main plaza, Plaza Principal, and because of that is walking distance to virtually every shop, restaurant and attraction that Puerto Vallarta has to offer. Its perfect for parties of up to five people, and of course is completely air-conditioned. Our building is 4 stories and has both elevator and stairway access. Penthouse Of The Dolphins is located on the 4th floor as is the swimming pool.

THE VIEW IS FABULOUS, looking south all the way down the coast to Cabo Corrientes and north all the way to Punta Mita, the northernmost point of Banderas Bay. The dolphins delight in swimming directly in front of my wraparound terrazas every day (hence the name 'Penthouse Of The Dolphins'), and early in the morning the local oyster divers collect their day’s catch on the rich reef in the crystal blue waters directly in front of my home. With its abundant underwater sea life, snorkeling and swimming are unsurpassed in this area.

BOTH BEDROOMS HAVE OCEANFRONT VIEWS, and the sunsets are truly amazing. If you are like me, you will spend both mornings on my main terrace, drinking your coffee and eating your breakfast watching the divers work and seeing the various seabirds hunt for their morning meal, and your evenings eating dinner at my handmade dining table, that is situated outside under the covered balcony. You will delight taking in the 180-degree view of the ocean and coastline from one end of the bay to the other. Every night there is a fireworks display that is mounted from the Spanish galleon named the Marigalante, and usually the ship passes about 500 feet away from my terrazas when it starts its show.

There Are 2 King-size Bedrooms each with its own connected bathroom, and there is also a third guest bathroom complete with its own shower. All of the bathrooms are all hand-crafted in marble. Both bedrooms have Flat screen cable TV/DVD.

The Washer and Dryer are both located inside the condo.

English speaking Managers and staff.

WE ALSO HAVE Free Wi-Fi High Speed Internet, so just bring your laptop and connect through your wireless connection and you are ready to go surf the Internet at no charge anytime of the day or night.

HAND HEWN GRANITE countertops accent the custom designed kitchen, which is complete and has all the amenities to make preparation of meals a delight. UV Filtered water, Microwave, Blender, Coffee maker, 6 Burner gas stove, Large side by side refrigerator and dishwasher are all there, and various spices are always on hand.

THE SWIMMING POOL is located on the roof of the building next to my condo, so just walk out the front door, take 30 steps and you will be standing next to the pool, and the water is always warm and the view is unforgettable.

Parking is Secured under the building, as my condo has the only underground parking in the city center, and the building has 24-hour security personnel to serve you.

WE ALSO HAVE ONE of the best restaurants in all of Puerto Vallarta located on the ground floor of our building facing the beach on the new Malecon. Its name is VITEA, and you will be delighted when you have your lunch or dinner there. It is truly a 4 star restaurant and believe me, their Margaritas are the BEST in town!

THINGS TO DO!! Virtually every water sport is available for you here in Puerto Vallarta. Also, there are horseback rides that take you back into the jungle where you will see waterfalls and flocks of parrots flying overhead. Golf is a major attraction here with several world class courses. There are canopy tours in the jungle, you can visit the set of 'Terminator', and you can also swim with the dolphins, race mini cars and go to the local Seaworld, where the kids will have a great time. There are concerts every night by local artists in the main plaza, flea markets galore and special events where the local people from areas outside of Puerto Vallarta bring their local food and wares for you to taste and buy. There are numerous fabulous nightclubs and discos that are open until 4 in the morning, so you can dance the night away every night and never go to the same place twice.

A note about Puerto Vallarta beaches; beaches are not always completely sandy. Although I cannot guarantee that the beach directly in front of our building will be completely sandy upon your visit, there are always plenty of sandy beaches for everyone within a block of our building.

About The Owner

Hi, I'm Michel Rubini. the very happy owner of Penthouse Of The Dolphins. I am a musician by trade, and I have been playing piano since I was 3 years old. I came to Puerto Vallarta in 2000 and fell in love with it immediately. I have been blessed with the good fortune to be able to live here with the wonderful Mexican people and share in their relaxed style of living, where everything slows down just a notch or two from the “hurry up” pace of America. To be able to sit on my terrace and view the ocean and listen to the sound of the birds and waves is a wonderfully relaxing experience that I look forward to every morning that I am here. I am very happy to be able to share my little piece of Heaven with you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Aloha, Michel

The Owner purchased this condo in 2008

Why The Owner chose Puerto Vallarta

When I arrived at my future home, walked through the entrada of the building and looked out and saw the azure blue waters of the Pacific and the incredible view of Banderas Bay right in front of me, I fell in love immediately. Being in the center of this wonderful town, I knew that this was the best location in all of Puerto Vallarta. I couldn't resist it.

What makes this condo unique

I Found Out that I could be just as secluded as I wanted as our building is very quiet, or I could enjoy a bounty of cultural and ethnic delights just by stepping outside. It was just up to me to decide what I would do on any given day, be a sun worshiper on the beach or at the pool, or join in the party that is always going on somewhere in this wonderful old colonial town. The views from my terrazas are unsurpassed, I can see the tourists strolling on the Malecon and I can also look out to the Pacific and see whales, dolphins, and even the oyster divers who like to work directly in front of home here.

This is a incredible place. The location could not be better. The view could not be better. The facilities could not be better. No criticisms whatsoever.

The description was spot on. Property was very clean and well maintained. We requested a little later check out and there was no hesitation on the part of the owner to allow it, which by my experience is unusual.

Watch out of the margaritas at the Devil Bar on the Malecon at the corner of the building. They are POTENT!

It was as close to perfection as possible. Would have no reservations recommending this property to anyone. The cost was below what you would expect for such a nice condo. Will definitely rent again.

An exceptional place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd year we have stayed here with our best friends. Watching people, birds and dolphins from the balcony is so relaxing. The Mexican people are so friendly and the guards at the property are helpful and friendly. Listening to the waves crashing on the beach is so soothing and I will really miss it. The penthouse is clean and comfortable, we will be going back next year. I suggest if you go there try the mom and pop restaurants we found 2 new ones that we will go back to. Only suggestion would be a couple of lounge chairs to sun on the balcony instead of having to go to the pool. Thanks for a great vacation.

Beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful condo, its fully equipped kitchen was great. We made a trip to Mega market to buy breakfast fixings so we could stay in the condo as the morning were so nice. The view from the balcony was great for people watching as it's facing the Malecon. We were treated every morning with dolphins jumping out of the water, and a lightning show at night. Loved the fact that we were in walking distance to so many wonderful restaurants and bars. The River Café has a nice Sunday Brunch and is a short walk from the condo. The condo is clean and the beds are very comfortable, and the 3rd full bathroom was a plus. The owner of the condo Michel Rubini is very nice and takes every effort to make sure you are comfortable in his condo. We will be back for sure.

Beautiful condo, beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

The listing description was very accurate, this is a beautiful condo! The location is perfect for taking advantage of everything the Malecon district has to offer. We enjoyed walking into the romantic zone, up into the hills finding art galleries, walking the Malecon, hoping on and off the city buses and taxi cabs were a breeze as access to both were directly in front of the building. The restaurant, Vitea, which is in the same building as the unit, was excellent.

Having a washing machine and dryer in the unit was wonderful!

The property was very clean and very well maintained. We met with Sassia upon arrival and never needed to speak to her again during our entire stay.

The owner is wonderful, he takes pride in ownership of his condos and it clearly shows.

I highly recommend this property for your downtown PV stay. We were a group of 4 women, a girls get away, and the condo suited our needs.

Unforgettable Vacation

  • 5 of 5

There are no correct words to describe our stay in Puerta Vallarta. The photos and your description of your property - as wonderful as they were- did not do it justice. PV is much more than my mom and I imagined. Once again a Home Away experience did not disappoint. Your home is absolutely lovely, and the residents in Mexico are charming. The culture is one we have immersed ourselves in and we are already disappointed to be returning to the states after 7 days. We plan to return next summer. Once again, thank you Michel. This trip has been PERFECT. P.S. The guard downstairs has been most helpful and very charming, too.

We stayed here for the second time and our experience was even more fabulous than the first time. The condo is more gorgeous than the photos. The location is perfect. I absolutely recommend staying at Penthouse of the Dolphin.
