About Paige or Whitney
Hi! My name is Paige. I own this condo, along with my daughter, Whitney and son, Adam. Whitney lived here from 2001 - 2004. We just recently started renting it out and hope you love it as much as we do! I am happy to answer any questions you have. This is Whitney and me.
Paige or Whitney purchased this Condo in 2000
Why Paige or Whitney chose Centro
I have loved Vallarta practically forever. When Whitney moved to Vallarta, that was the perfect excuse to buy a condo, and this place was for sale. It was a dream come true! I cannot believe I am so lucky to actually own the most fabulous place in the world! (well....almost!....)

Very fun and comfortable spot to stay. Condo was actually much larger than the pictures!
Wonderful spot....we will definitely book again. Beautiful terrace and super fun location. Well stocked unit .....but so many places to eat right outside the door so we never actually cooked....maybe next time.
Thank you, Susan for the nice review!!! That means so much! We are always trying to improve the Condo and we welcome any suggestions. Our goal is for our guests to feel that our home is their home....
We have stayed at many different places in PV over the past 25 years. This was our first experience staying in the downtown area on the Malecon. Be prepared for lots of late night noise - music, people, fireworks. This typically quieted down a bit around 12:30-1 am each night. This condo is in the center of it all. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony (which is very large) watching people, the nightly activities such as the food vendors and people dressing up in various ways for picture taking, and we saw whales twice during the week we were there from the condo/deck area. The condo is very close to many resturants so that is a plus. We had planned to cook some meals in the condo, but there is very little in the way of cooking/eating utensils/pots/pans/dishes and they were in very worn condition. But it is very cheap to eat out, so we ate all meals out. The air conditioner works very well, and even though we were there during a very hot/humid time frame, the condo was nice and cool. The pool is extremely small and we found it to be too warm and not well maintained, so we only used it briefly once. The views from the top of the building (where the pool resides) are nice. This condo is very colorful so we enjoyed sitting in the front rooms and looking out over the ocean. We also heard the ocean waves crashing against the shore every night after the noise from the festivities subsided. The cable for the TV does not work. We were told it was a cable outage, but it never worked the whole week we were there. Not that we needed it much, but it would have been nice to see news or part of the Indy 500 while we were there.
Hello, and thank you for your review. As owners, Paige and I are continuously making improvements to the Condo and are happy to take suggestions from our guests. With regards to the kitchen, it is FULLY stocked. It is not a top of the line kitchen, but it does have everything you need to cook whatever you would like. We have already planned on updating the pots and pans and cutlery this summer. With regards to the plates, cups, etc, they are brand new as of this past February. Thank you for the feedback, we are already in the process of updating the cooking utinsels.
With regards to the location, we are very up- front with the disclosure of the location. It is right in the middle of the downtown action with a gorgeous view of the entire bay. Unfortunately, we cannot control the noise that happens downtown. It is a very lively and fun day and nightlife. It’s part of what we love the most about our home, you walk downstairs, and you are right where you want to be; in the heart of Puerto Vallarta.
The cable situation was VERY unfortunate, and as we had discussed, out of anyone’s hands. Paige and I were in constant communication with you and the cable company, our manager, Marina, was also calling the cable company daily. We are dealing with cable in Mexico, not the U.S., and sometimes it can get extremely frustrating. The cable outage did not just affect our unit, it was affecting the entire building (who knows how many hundreds of others...). The cable is now up and running. We sincerely apologize for not being able to watch the news or the race. However, we did have internet, and perhaps those things could’ve been streamed on your laptop, smart pad, or smart phone.
We are constantly striving to create the best experience for our guests and want them to feel like “nuestra casa es su casa.” We are sorry that your experience was not 5 stars. We were in constant communication, and I wish you would’ve let us know while you were there so we could’ve done something to improve your experience in the moment (we really tried to remedy the cable situation, we are sorry). Thank you for your review. ~Whitney and Paige
Great place on the Malecon!!
Location!! It doesn't get better - right in the thick of it all. Yes, it can be noisy, but it never really bothered us at all, and we live in the country.
Facilities - great and clean!! Had everything we needed to cook breakfast and some dinners. The manager and caretakers are extremely helpful and quick to react to anything that might come up. The condo is bright and colorful.
Paige was quick to respond to questions and very helpful overall. Definitely a great condo to stay in Puerto Vallarta. We will be back - highly recommend.
A cute and comfortable apartment.
The location can't be beat, directly over the Malecon near the footbridge over the Rio Cuale. It was very clean and the staff were wonderful and very responsive to any needs. I travel alone and felt very safe with the gated entrance and a security guard outside 24/7. The property is older but well maintained.
I would have given 5 stars except the bed was not as comfortable as I would have hoped. The plastic mattress covering prevented the sheets from staying tucked in during sleep.
If you need quiet to sleep, be aware that the bedroom can be a bit noisy at times until midnight or so since it's right on the Malecon. But it was never anything I couldn't sleep through. I never heard any loud music or parties. The loudest noise is the Pirate Ship that sails near the Malecon nightly when they shoot the cannon and set off fireworks. The view of the fireworks and the brightly lit ship more than makes up for any noise created!!
The apartment is good value for the price, and I would stay again without hesitation.
Marcia! Thank you for the wonderful review! I appreciate the feedback about the mattress cover. I will try to find a better solution. I am a stickler for cleanliness and I want the mattresses sanitary at all times. I thought the mattress covers with plastic on the underneath side would be the best option. They are washed each time a guest leaves. I will research better options.
I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay. I truely want my guests to feel that this is their home in Puerto Vallarta.
Don’t forget that returning guests get a 10 % discount. 😄
nice and clean!!!
nice and clean place!..very cozy!
Absolutely delightful in the heart of PV!
My husband and I have made PV and our stay in this condo for a few years now, and have made PV our regular "most desired winter destination, for too many reasons to list here.
However to start, owner Paige, Whitney and Marco are most exceptional people.
Without planting roots in PV, we have an amazing condo, one that provides restoration as you experience what the bay and malecon have to offer from the best balcony in PV. Central to all PV has to offer.
The search for that 'perfect' place to stay is over, as I have visited PV for 15 yrs. now.
A big thanks to Paige, Whitney for allowing us to 'plant our roots' in PV for our winter stay.

This beautiful condo is only a stone's throw from the waves, with all that living on the oceanfront has to offer, swimming, fishing, jetskiing, boating, surfing, etc. To the east, just a short drive away are the jungles, mountains and rivers for a change of pace from the beaches. Just 20 minutes to the north there are world class golf courses. With nine courses in the area, there is something to challenge even the most discriminating golfers!
Other Activities: shopping, boating, parasailing, wildlife viewing, health/beauty spa
