Overview

Puerto Vallarta Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This stunning, 8th floor condominium offers views from three sides, as it is an L-shaped, end unit. The home is recently being offered for rent and has been furnished for the owner’s use.

As you enter the condo from your private security-coded elevator, this vacation home greets you with ocean views, beautiful marble floors, and striking furnishings. The wrap-around balcony invites you outside to further enjoy the views and ocean breezes. Floor to ceiling windows provide abundant light. Once inside, you notice the large kitchen with upgraded stainless steel appliances, granite counters and large picture window.

The Master Suite is a private retreat in itself. It offers ocean views from the king-size bed, as well as from the balcony & jetted Jacuzzi tub. The other bedrooms are situated in a separate wing. Bedroom 2 also has a new king-size bed, an ocean view and a balcony. Bedroom 3, is designed for options as an additional retreat or for sleeping, but I've added a queen-size bed in this room while retaining a futon-like sofa & chair which convert into double & single beds. All bedroom suites have private baths with large, marble showers & counters, & organized closets.

Shangri-La offers many amenities; they include a huge infinity pool, beach with palapas and chaise lounges, beachfront gym and spa with massage service, poolside cafe/bar, and concierge sevices. In addition, it is conveniently located just across the street from Marina Vallarta shops, restaurants and yachts, near all yet private and quiet.

Also, convenient taxi and bus service just in front of the property will bring you from the airport or into town in just a few minutes. If you decide to rent or bring a car, the unit has parking in the ground floor garage. But you can be happy staying home the entire time here. And 3 flat screen TV's are in the unit, including a new, 2014 50-inch LG TV in the living room.

PV Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to PV. We absolutely loved this complex and the pool is second to none. We rented a car expecting to do several day trips but quickly decided sitting poolside was too hard to beat so we returned the car. It simply wasn't needed. It is so easy to crab a cab and there are a number if great restaurants in the harbour within walking distance. The suite was very well appointed and lacking nothing, although a grill would have been nice. The owner was great to deal with and if we go back to PV this is the only place I would want to stay.

A View Of A Pool

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to PV. We wanted a centralized location, as we wanted to explore downtown and up the coast to Sayulita and Bucerias. This was a perfect jumping off point to both. The best part of this condo, is the pool that comes with it. We have a 2.5 year old, and the gigante pool was a lot of fun for us, and we spent a lot of time lounging in and around the pool. The marina is located right across the street, with restaurants, small boutique stores, cheap massages, and convenience stores. There is a supermarket within walking distance, back towards the airport. Located next to the supermarket are several banks, with the best exchange rates we noticed, but you need $50 or $100, as they wouldn't take my US $20's. There is a taxi stand right outside the condo, and the concierge will call a cab right to the door. We had a few problems when we settled in, the air conditioning wasn't working, and the water pressure was pretty low. I called the condo owner, and he got right on it, the property manager came over with in 1 hour and fixed everything. The condo is clean enough, and well appointed. A great place to stay for a 1st visit to PV!

Wedding guests from AZ

  • 5 of 5

This condo was beautiful and clean, just like the pictures. We hosted a wedding at Las Caletas that weekend and this was a perfect location forsome wedding guests to stay. We rented 3 condo's for wedding guests and this one was perfect for our AZ guests as it was just a short walk to the Marina area. The beautiful deck with an awesome view of the beach and pool was the perfect spot to start each morning and end end each day. The pool was fantastic and we loved that it had a heated area. We often had breakfast or lunch at the pool restaurant (prices were reasonable and food good) and ventured out to the Marina or Malecon (short cab ride) for dinner. All in all this is a beautiful place to stay and we definately plan to return!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this condo was fabulous. The unit was immaculately clean (a must for me) and had all of the appliances and amenities that were stated in the description. We had everything we needed, and the location is excellent. Even though we stayed at the complex during a busy holiday week, the pool is so vast that we never felt crowded in or around it. Can't beat the view--we watched a lot of sunsets from the balcony lounge chairs. I would definitely rent this unit again.

Beautiful Condo in the Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My extended family rented this condo and another one on the floor directly above it. There were a total of 10 people in our party and it worked perfectly. Both condos had 3 beds and 3 full baths, a kitchen, a dining room, a living room and a spacious wrap around deck with a beautiful view of the ocean. We saw the wonderful pictures and were trying not to get too excited about the amenities for fear of a let down, but every last one of them was as good as promised.

We knew the Marina Vallarta area very well from staying at the Marriott in the past and knew that Shangri-La was a perfect location. I am very partial to the Marina Vallarta location because it offers many shops, restaurants and spas in (what feels like) a safe location.

The owners were prompt and helpful in answering our questions and provided us with guides for the area. This condo had a minor problem with very small ants, but it was never more than a nuisance. I told the owner about it and he assured me that it would be resolved. Given the attentiveness of the condo staff and property manager, I am inclined to believe him. As I mentioned before, we were a family of about 10 that went down to escape the Portland rain, sit by the pool and relax and it did not disappoint. My sister brought her three kids (13, 11 and 8) and they had a great time. The pool had a bar and a cafe with a basic but cheap menu. I would definitely recommend the listing to friends or relatives, but most of them were already on the trip with us.

Aside from the condo area, I would definitely recommend a zip line tour and visiting the city. I don't worry too much about gang violence in Puerto Vallarta, but there has definitely been a creep toward the area. My advice would be to visit the city and the incredible sand sculptures for lunch and to generally stay in places you are familiar with and feel safe. In the marina area, I recommend dinner at Victor's, but only if you are ready to drink.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review, Michael. The positive feedback I get encourages me to continue to offer my condo to guests rather than be here all the time myself. I am also grateful for the assistance of my property manager to be able to respond to needs that may arise, from dealing with the smallest ant to assistance in booking tours. And I appreciate that my guests find him attentive to their needs. Like anywhere, I think you are as safe as you feel. I still enjoy exploring Puerto Vallarta on my own, in familiar as well as new places I find. And I am still awed by the beauty of the town and region, as well as the friendliness of the people. It was nice that you and your family were able to book both my condo and my friend's on the floor above for a great vacation. Thank you for coming.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have been remiss in writing a review but have finally got around to it. If you are thinking of going to PV stay here. Shangri La is outstanding in every way. The views, the gym, the pool and of course the condos. Steves place is immaculate and has all modern convieniences. We had a hiccup with Passports coming down and Steve really tried to help us out. All your shopping is close as are the restaurants at the marina. Absolutely outstanding.
