Couldn't Be Better!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't be happier with the location of this condo! The beach is beautiful and the pool was great. We went into town almost everyday and all you had to do was walk out front of the condo for the city bus or there were always taxi's just waiting to take you anywhere. The view from the condo was amazing with the sound of waves crashing on the beach. The condo was comfortable and as the pictures indicated. Only one minor suggestion would be a larger coffee pot. We had four adults here and the two cup coffee maker was never enough for our group. Susan was so helpful to provide us with great suggestions for restaurants close by and in town. We will definitely come back.

Rest & Relaxation at Punta Negra!

  • 5 of 5

The beach at Punta Negra is definitely one of the nicest beaches in Puerto Vallarta. The water is clear and warm, with excellent snorkeling right in front of the condo. The pool is a refreshing change from the surf ~ always clean and plenty of room for catching some rays.

The condo has everything you will need - kitchen is complete, beds are comfy, it is lacking nothing.

The staff at the condo is very friendly, Arturo always happy to see us, and helped us with cab and buses. Definitely a safe place to stay.

We look forward to returning.

Beautiful views from the balcony, condo and pool well maintained, great sandy beach

  • 4 of 5

Overall we really enjoyed our week stay. The condo is situated south of Old Vallarta about 15 minutes on the bus. We used the bus as much as we could and was a great way to get to and from Old Downtown (only cost 8 pesos per person each way). Picked up and dropped off in front of condo. The condo is a little secluded which is part of the charm but somewhat inconvenient at times. We had some trouble finding fresh fruits and vegetables during our stay. This may be due to our inability to communicate well with the locals (our Spanish skills are very limited). We also were a little surprised and disappointed with the limited cooking supplies available. If you plan to do much cooking plan to pick up what you need as you can't depend on things being provided. The beach along the property was beautiful sand but the area tends to be rocky but no complaints. The pool was nice and warm and kept very clean. There was enough space on the deck for everyone and we were there at a busy time of year. The staff was overall very friendly, especially the day time staff. The beds were comfy and the space was plenty for our family of 4. Thanks to Susan for our stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Brian for your nice review. I am sure I told you about the market place that has multiple local fresh fruit and vegetable vendors. But, if I didn't, I am sorry. Our front desk sure would have directed you where to buy what you need if you ask, for next time if you return! It is true I don't provide many spices, etc., I use to but no one was using them and I had to repeatedly throw them out. So, I stopped. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed your time at our beach and hope you return. By the way, I know the waves were a little high the week before you arrived and eroded some sand so the beach wasn't as sandy as normal. Take care and thanks for your visit. Susan

Fabulous location and condo amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Susan!

This was a great location! Far enough away from all the town hustle and street noises. And yet close enough to have any night life one would like to have during a vacation.

We went into town several times and stayed until after midnight and the taxi service was only round $5-6 bucks to get back to the condos.

I would suggest exchanging money at banks, if you plan to play in the town, in order to get the best bang for your buck. It was 14 to 1 exchange for U.S dollars at banks and only 10-1 or sometimes 12-1 when using U.S dollars at businesses. It really adds up, if you are a spender in the community.

Lindo Mar restaurant was a real treat (ocean side) and they actually provided 14-1 exchange. This was the only business that did and we played a lot around the town to know. It was a pleasant surprise and thought we would mention it, in case your hungry and only have U.S cash in your pocket, at the time. Great location for breakfast!

We were two couples and had plenty of space and both had really nice bathrooms for each couple. Lots of balcony space too!

This condo is right on the perfect beach and has a well equipped kitchen. Beds were nice and every room had an air condition, in case one might need it. We just kept the doors open and just listened to the waves.

We really had a great time relaxing by the pool side and then splashing in the ocean waves. You could not beat this location, if you want quiet, peaceful serenity. This is not the place for spring breakers and fireworks. It is an Adult community, but their were a few families with kids. All together a nice mix.

When ever we wanted, we had a easy bus ride to town for supplies, restaurants and local attractions. Less than a dollar bus ride, every 10 minutes, and they stop and pick up right in front of condo.

The taxi to and from Airport was around $25. We took a van with all 4 people and luggage and it was around $60 from Airport, but only $50 going back. They were willing to stop at big grocery store for initial supplies (20min) and we tipped driver $5 for this stop.

This is all and all a hidden gem for relaxing and enjoying beach front property without all the hoop-la the town beaches and boardwalks push onto you. You can go visit all that. But it is really nice to know you don't have to be in it everyday.

Thanks again Susan for the easy living and nice home!

Beautiful Condo and Wonderful Owner!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this condo or the owner!! The space is absolutely beautiful - pictures cannot do it justice. We stayed here over new years and it is the perfect location if you want to be close to old Puerto Vallarta but far enough away for a nice peaceful vacation. Like other reviewers said it is about 10 minutes to old PV by bus or taxi. The staff is amazing and will help you with anything you need. The beach is perfect and the water was warm and clear!

This was our first time not staying at an all inclusive and we absolutely loved it! We had two couples staying in the condo and there is more than enough room for 4 people. The balcony is breathtaking and opens up right onto the ocean and is only a few steps to the beach.

My boyfriend left his passport in one of the dressers, which we didn't realize until we were 4 hours south of town. You can imagine our panic!! We had cell service intermittently and couldn't get a hold of the front desk so I emailed the owner telling her of our delema. She immediately took care of it and placed all our documentation in a bag and left it at the front desk with our room number on it. She than emailed us all the information we needed including office hours and anything else we would need. I don't know what we would have done without her!! Thank you so much Susan - we had the most amazing vacation!

Even though we were two young couples staying for a week I could also see this place being perfect for a family vacation. We felt perfectly safe and at ease and the owner even left a binder with any information you would need including restaurants near by, her favorite places to eat, transportation, beach and condo information and much more which we found extremely useful and used every day!

The entire transaction was smooth and an overall pleasant experience with no problems whatsoever. The condo was more beautiful than described and the staff was so accommodating! I would definitely recommend this place to a friend and give it 5+ stars! Thanks Susan for an amazing vacation we will definitely be coming back!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your beautiful comments. I am happy to hear you had a great time. I was happy to help you with your forgotten documents, I, myself have forgotten important items and understand the panic. I live in Vallarta full time so it was my pleasure to go and secure the papers. I do hope to see you again soon!

Perfect Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Looking to leave our snowy climate for a week in February, we were inundated with options on the web, but through some divine intervention or utter luck, we happened upon this gem, and couldn' t have been happier with our choice!!

From the professional, prompt and thorough information sent by the owner on our intial requests, until the day we had to leave this paradise, we were thoroughly impressed and entirely delighted with this condo and its location!

Upon our arrival, the front desk was courteous, and reviewed all the information we needed for a great stay! We had been told by regulars to the area to pick up staples on the drive from the airport which was great information - the Mega store has everything you need and there are lots of little Oxxo markets nearby as well!

We arrived to a beautifully appointed, clean and absolutely gorgeous condo. From the stainless steel appliances (ice in the door fridge for those instant margaritas!) to the gas stove, which I loved, the kitchen had everything we needed and more! Town is only a 10 minute bus or cab ride out the front door to an amazing array of restaurants as well!

It was also great to have the amenity of a washer and dryer if needed! The bedrooms and bathrooms were roomy and the marble tub in the master was wonderful! The whole condo is very well laid out, and we loved the whimsical and beautiful artistic touches throughout!

The best part was the view though!! Right on a fantastic beach - steps from the pool, - we ate all our meals at home on the balcony gazing at the rolling waves (and occasional whale sightings as well!) - and feeling right at home.

There's no question that we plan to be back - and would highly recommend this gem to anyone - but would rather keep it a secret just for ourselves and friends!!
