Overview

South Zone Condo Rental Photos and Description

Two Master suites with king size beds or convert to 2 twins 2 bathrooms.

A beautifully decorated, non smoking, privately owned large condo located right on the beach in the south beach area of Puerto Vallarta. Gorgeous views of the Banderas Bay and city. Watch the whales at play from the balcony that leads off the master bedroom and living room: A paradise to come home to after a busy day in the town, located 7 minutes from the city. Fully air conditioned, totally renovated in 2006 to include newly tiled floors, granite counter tops, new furniture, high speed wireless Internet,47 inch flatscreen T.V.. with Dish satellite providing U.S. stations, stereo, DVD washer and dryer in unit and a fully equipped kitchen with full size dishwasher, microwave, frig /freezer, B.B.Q. on balcony etc and much more. Snorkel right in front of the condo, body surf the waves, relax by the large pool which exits directly on to the almost vendor free beach. 24 hour gated security, elevator, handicap ramp, bi-lingual reception and maid service once weekly on Tuesdays for 3-4 hour

Guest Book.: Most of our guests write down their experiences in the book, you would do well to follow their suggestions, we have experienced many positive events doing this. There are many brochures and guide books in the condo for you to use, if you are a first time visitor let me know and I will send some to you so that you will be familiar with what to expect before you get there.

Puerto Vallarta stands as a destination that offers a lot more than sun and surf. Arts and culture, one of the highest indexes of galleries per capita in North America, film festivals are held several times a year.

Everything else..: Canopy Tours.

Horseback Adventures.

off road Adventures, dune buggy ,ATV Jeep.

EcoSan Blas Safari.

Rythm of the Night.

Whale watching.

Marigalante fantasy adventure.

Bora-Bora boat cruise.

Gerononimo Hi seas Adventure

Rain Forest Adventure

South end of town.: Often overlooked because we are just outside of the 'the noise and bustle', on one side is the Bay Of Banderas, and the other is still the jungle which hopefully will remain and not become 'cement city' like so much of the hillside has, we have this wonderful location, further South one has the Zoo at Mismaloya, Botanical gardens, Chicos Paradise, Tequila tasting factory, and of course the beach at Mismaloya where you can rent pretty much anything that goes on water, hire tour leaders or boat captains for deep sea fishing, all of this and much more. A bus ride North or about three miles you can enjoy the bountiful night life, art galleries, more beaches, the Malecon for a wonderful promenade walk and many other attractions before returning to the serenity of the condo.

Diane- Owner.Call me for special Price 3/12/16 -3/19/16 purchased this condo in 2000

Why Diane- Owner.Call me for special Price 3/12/16 -3/19/16 chose Puerto Vallarta

We love Puerto Vallarta and have been going there for 20 years, love the people and the way families take care of each other, have made many friends over the years.

Why this property, what is not to love, it is priceless, the people are so friendly, we have made wonderful friends, that is why, I can't imagine not having this beautiful ocean and beach to see every morning, to see the sea life and listen to the waves as it sends me to sleep, more to the point, why not this property? We do prefer long term renters 2-4 months so all of you frozen Canadians can leave the white stuff behind. I have many references and reviews, also awards for excellence.

What makes this condo unique

Puerto Vallarta is the only place where we truly relax, are sincerely welcomed, so it is our home away from home. We feel safe, people young and old, always caring and ready to help you. It is a beautiful world here, forget the media melodrama, in the states we have more problems in one day than I have seen here in 20 years.

When there are a few days open in HI Season I often have a special, so please e mail or call, especially April. Just please don't insult me, we offer you a gorgeous condo , on the beach, accommodates 4 in Luxury. It is not a hotel and neither motel 6 or 8 that offers you nothing.

My 50th B-day escape

  • 5 of 5

Yes my last linute decision for a getaway was a good one. With only limited time to prepare and find a place to stay I decided to try the Condo experience and selected the sonderful La Dolce Vita. The owner was the absolute best in her customer care. She totally made me feel at ease with my first on-line rental. The information package she provided was a great reference for some of the things to do and see. The Condo was fabulous, with absolutely everything you could possibly need available to you. Sitting on the balcony, with cocktail in hand, watching the sunset over the Bay is the ultimate in relaxation. Canopy Zip Lining, now there is how I got my excitement. Having been to PV several times over the years I have decided that this is the way to holiday. Thank you for allowing me to share this home and I have been passing it on to everyone I know already.

Until next time, Cheers.

The best, loved every moment

  • 5 of 5

This place was magic for my family and myself... To be honest, I have not stopped trying to think of how I can move here and maintain my job.

The condo was paradise, so close to the beach and the waves were incredible and we loved jumping on the bus just across the street.

I one million percent recommend this place, you will not be disappointed. Heaven, awesome, so much fun. Best trip of my life, oh and I have traveled to some pretty cool places.

Check it out and enjoy😊

Amazing Property at an Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as advertised. It was clean and had a nice bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived. The owners were easy to reach and responded immediately to the minor issue we had with accessing the internet. The location was excellent with a semi-private beach and a private pool. Very well maintained property with a tremendous view of the ocean. The front office was very helpful with recommendations and arranging for a taxi which wasn't very often as they were usually available across the street. We felt very comfortable and the 24-hr security was very friendly. Diane provided great info prior to arrival which we used with much satisfaction and appreciation. We had a great time and highly recommend this property for anyone who wants a very relaxing vacation in Puerto Vallarta for a great value.

Great space, amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautifully decorated and was spacious enough for myself and my 3 guests. We had every amenity we could have needed in the property. The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and comfortable. The views from the deck were beautiful. Also having access to a private pool and the beach was a nice bonus. The only downside was the internet was a little spotty and we were a bit far from downtown (about 10-15min drive) so sometimes we had to wait a bit for a cab to come by. But the building staff was always helpful and someone was there 24/7 even on New Year's Eve and Day. I would definitely stay here again.

Car: not necessary

The condo is ideally situated, close to the center of town but far enough away to get peace and relax at the end of the day. The Malecon Or Promenade is full of activity, especially on weekends, you will see all kinds of entertainment from bands, folkloric dance, music entertainers, cultural events, you will feel the warmth and friendliness of the Mexican people and enjoy the incredible closeness of the family togetherness that they project, there are many tourist attractions and tours but the night life on the 'Malecon' is there for your pleasure and shouldn't be overlooked. Just walking along this beautiful stretch of ocean front is a vacationers delight.

Please check availability calendar before applying.

Other Activities: Waterpark-deep sea fishing-tour surrounding historical areas-art is in abundance for the art lovers. Walk the Beautiful Malecon.Go to the local theatre, Act 11 Stages, Basillio Badillo at insurgents above WINGS ARMY, Zona Romantica, Theatre and Cabaret call 322-2221512. Seats 100 but every seat is a good one, performers are great..

If you need dental work, your savings will cover the cost of your entire vacation including condo and air, as long as you book for 2 weeks or more. My dentist, perfect English, trained in the States and is wonderful, very booked, I would set this up for you after a reservation, basic work like fillings and cleanings is just a day but caps, crowns,bridges etc need more time, the savings are huge.

I see I should write 3500 more words, there is just so much one could write about, 2000 restaurants , a beautiful promenade, folkloric performances, art walks every Wednesday evening. I also send you an activity list from my own experiences, we all are different, but this offers each and everyone of us something, Zoomba and yoga in the centre park every day, private Spanish lessons, whatever you want, you can get. Just enjoy yourself and be happy.
