Overview

Puerto Vallarta Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, SLEEPS 6, Steps into the large infinity pool.

Step off the patio into the infinity pool. Relax on a chaise lounge and sip margaritas. After watching the sunset from the patio or by the pool, cross the street and walk down the steps to Old Town and have dinner on Los Muertos Beach (5 - 7 minute walk). You might choose La Palapa, The El Dorado or maybe Daiquiri Dicks. There are many fine restaurants in PV that serve world famous cuisine and they are all within walking distance of Casa Vista Linda.

Continue down the beachfront to Ritmose Beach Club and the Blue Chairs Resort and listen to Jazz, or salsa, whatever is on the menu. Listen to the music and the lapping of the waves! We are in the perfect location to enjoy all of Puerto Vallarta and still have the luxury of quiet and privacy.

Our Kitchen has state of the art appliances, china, silverware, wine glasses, most staples and spices. Our bedrooms are comfy places to sleep or rest your head before heading out the next day for sightseeing or perhaps a canopy tour. Each master suites have king beds and beautiful bathrooms Two have jacuzzi tubs. The other bathroom, though smaller has a large walking shower. The whole condo is luxury, from the moment you walk in, to the down pillow you rest your head on at night and the marble floors under your slippered feet.

The decor was designed by Jorge Rubio of Terra Noble in a Mexican Indian motif, juxtaposed onto a modern Mexican architecture. Everything in the condo is of the highest quality. Our maid Eva, comes three times a week and we can arrange a cook for dining in, if you would like.

Puerto Vallarta awaits you. You won't be sorry if you choose to stay at Casa Vista Linda.

About Linda Bruce

We live in Northern California and have one condo in Puerto Vallarta.

Linda Bruce purchased this condo in 2004

Why Linda Bruce chose Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta is a charming mexican city. We chose this location because it is accessible to shops beach and restaurants and yet quiet.

What makes this condo unique

Walking down to the Malecon for an early morning jog

Sit by the pool in the sun gaze out at the view

Cross the street get on a bus going south. Go to Linda Mar, Botanical Gardens or Mismaloya for the day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Linda,



Thank you so much for the use of your condo this past week. I know it

was a hassle for you when we were supposed to have the use of your time

share. Your condo is beautiful and the view is spectacular. We had a

wonderful time and will definitely return to Puerto Vallarta . Everyone was so

helpful and friendly. We even looked at some condos ourselves because we

were so impressed with the area. It was the perfect place for a true vacation.

There were so many things to do, but we felt rested when we got home

because it was a great place to do nothing also. We have to come back to go

to all of the restaurants that we missed. Thank you again. We will tell all of

our friends about your place. Joan Roda

Muy Especial!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing week at Casa Linda! I have stayed at another Villa on Hortensias in the past which was nice but I never expected what Casa Linda, a condo, could offer. It is high in the hills which I love as this units bedrooms make you feel like your high in the jungle. This location works also in order to burn off those calories from flan and taxis from downtown are $2.50 for 4 people! I went with family and my 11 yr. old son. Of course the decor was special down to the details. I found myself in charge of “the lighting” each evening. Since unit was costume renovated they had thought of how lighting effected every area of the unit. Additionally, while more or less every vacation rental I have stayed at supplies the basics in their kitchen, Casa Linda has everything a gourmet chef needs to prepare a meal (if you want to cook!) down to spices, Mexican pottery dishes, chef knifes and a good expresso/latte machine. Case Linda also has robes and house slippers in each bedroom for guest to wear (note pics and my sister and sitting in the morning enjoying our view of Bandaras Bay). It was also a treat to have Ava come every other day to clean the unit. More like hotel service. Casa Linda is one of two ground units in La Cina One which is the closest to town of three condo units in this area and the smallest building of the three. Many of the other owners where there when we were visiting for an annual meeting and we felt very welcome as vacation renters including my child. Casa Linda also stocks beach towels, sand and pool toys, some basic medical supplies, beach hats and shopping bags and an assortment of Latin CDs to set the mood! While the pool looks small and narrow in the pictures it actually is a lap pool. OK, the wall to wall sliding doors! I also made use of these amazing features each morning which opens the front of the unit to paradise! Very good landscaping still makes this unit feel private even though it is on the ground. I would agree with another review that the gate to the pool, 4 steps away , makes this feel like the pool is yours! While we were there we found out the pool’s heat was higher than normal which I loved but they do keep it around 90 degrees which in some months are nice to have even with all the sun. Whether you want to hide in one of the three amazing air-condition bedrooms or read on the couch or rocking chairs overlooking beautiful Puerto Vallarta Casa Linda is a Muy Especial to be.

Luxury in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This marble and glass luxury condo is the best we have ever enjoyed. The 20 year history of Puerto Vallarta qualified us and there is no better value for the money. The view is beautiful just as shown on the website and all amenities were first class. A short interesting walk down the hill brings you to the beach and our colorful "old town". Perhaps the best treat of ask is the warm caring people who we encountered in every day transactions. Look no further, this is the place you want.

Great PV Condo- Gorgeous Design with a Fabulous View in the Best Location

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a four night girls weekend in PV. I have rented condos in PV probably a dozen times and this one was the best. The location is in Amapas so you have a fabulous view of beautiful PV, the Bay of Banderas and endless water. The condo is in a building with thirteen other units so a manageable size- VERY SAFE, SECURE -- and felt like being home. Now for inside the condo- the decor is lovely, lots of light, open air and just really comfortable and livable. Everything you can imagine is there so you don't have to think about a thing- I opened the closet in the master bedroom and there were even sun hats to borrow! Don't even think about it- book this place. It is where you want to stay in PV to live away from all the touristy craziness with all the conveniences of a home that has been so thoughtfully designed. Linda was very helpful and accomodating in the booking process and the entire team onsite there is stellar. Nice, lovely people that are there to make your travel experience more enjoyable but not intrusive. I will definitely rebook this place next time I head down to PV- and this will be the first time I can say that! thanks Linda- will be emailing you soon for a future booking!

My 4th visit to this beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

This is my 4th stay at Linda and Bob's beautiful property. I went with my usual partners, my sweetheart Gail and our very good friend Sharon. Again the stay was amazing. The Mexican Indian theme blends right into the jungle just outside your bedroom windows and the modern Mexican architecture with the fabulous view of the bay below. We have never had to use the air conditioner during our stays as the condo is very open and the breezes waft through the entire condo.

I was a little under the weather when I arrived this year and found myself spending more time at the condo than usual. What a treat. I fully appreciated using the infinity pool all day long and lounging under the hot Mexican sun. I felt better almost immediately and left feeling much better than I was when I arrived.

The maid Eva is a lovely person and does a very good job of cleaning the condo three times a week. We regard her as family when we are there. Alfredo who looks after the property is a wealth of knowledge of the PV area and will do anything to make your stay more enjoyable.

We stayed for two weeks. It wasn't enough. I wanted more. We were curious and looked at ads for other properties for rent and I can honestly say there is not another property in Puerto Vallarta that can compare with this one.

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

I had spent several days searching the internet for the perfect condo to rent for my family and this one caught my eye. We spent the month of July here and it was absolutely incredible!! The warmth, comfort and tranquility made this place truly feel like "home".

First of all I'd like to say that if your searching like I have it's safe to say you can stop your search because you found it. The pictures don't do it justice. The condo is so bright, open and well maintained. Nothing is left unattended. Linda has it stocked full of all the entertainment you would need. It was nice to see books lining the walls in a couple of the bedrooms to read, a small collection of DVD's to enjoy on a lazy evening, plenty of pool toys for the kids and some board games. The kitchen was excellent and spacious enough to prepare big meals without feeling crowded. It was also nice to find a spice cupboard with an assortment of things you would need to prepare your meals, such as spices, gravy mixes, can soups, packaged tea, sugar, salt and pepper ect. Some of those spices were items I didn't think to grab when I was at the supermarket so it was a relief to find them already there. We just made sure to replace what we used before we left so the next person would have them available to them too. I like the "pay it forward" system they have going on there. Small things like that truly show the warmth this environment holds for past, present and future tenants. Despite the fact that it was during the summer we didn't find the heat to be to overwhelming. Yes its quite warm, however up on the hill in Amapas with all the windows open you get such a nice breeze flow thru the condo that you don't notice the heat to much. At night we would close everything up and simply turn on the A/C in the bedrooms for a short while. If you keep the bathroom and bedroom door closed as well you only need the A/C on for a little while before you fall asleep. With the ceiling fan going your fine after that. Booking the condo was effortless and smooth. Linda is such a charming lady and I really enjoyed our communication. The property manager Alfredo is very professional and eager to assist with anything you need. Eva, the maid, always has a smile on her face and quickly and quietly cleans the condo every other day. She was a joy to see. My family and I will be renting this property again in the future and I'd highly recommend it to family and friends. Thank you for sharing your home with us Linda and Bob.

OMG - That was the reaction!

  • 5 of 5

I don't even know where to start with this review, that's how good it was! We were a group of 5 young guys (early 30s) who were looking for a relaxing, fun and pampered vacation... WE GOT IT.

We started off with a private VIP pickup from the airport with a well deserved Cerveza and then it got amazingly better once we arrived to the property. Up the elevator we go and that pool... pictures don't do it justice, it truly is amazing. Walk into the condo and it looks just like the pictures except feels much larger, 5 adults and we never once felt crowded. Alfredo the Property Manager went above and beyond to organize all the details and a private chef for us, after all we were there to vacation and not cook; Ariana was a great cook and we ate like Kings.

The only 1 thing I wish the kitchen had was an espresso machine, but the coffee machine sufficed and worked overtime for us.

We can't forget to mention Eva, the fantastic house cleaner.. she came over a few times during our stay and never once did she make us feel as if we were in her way. Her English is limited but hey... you're in a Spanish speaking country after all :)

As for the location; perfect! 50 pesos gets you from downtown to the condo. Walk straight down to the beach via the path directly across the highway from the property and you’re at the famous Blue Chairs resort (right on the ocean), enjoy the hike back up the hill, she’s a steep one. If you’ve never been to Puerto Vallarta this is a great place to be, the beach is full of amazing restaurants and if you like a little dancing and partying at night, the downtown offers that too. I have to say, if you go out late on the town, the street tacos at Super Mendozas Taco (I wish I could tell you the exact location they are) are the best tacos I’ve ever had in my life, find it, try it.

I CANNOT say anything bad about this property at all, it's exactly what you need for a relaxing and pampering vacation, the owner and Alfredo will make sure that everything is just right for you and your vacation.

Try this place out.. worth it! Trust me...
