Las Glorias Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps up to 8)

Plan your Mexico vacation in this spacious 3 bedroom, 3 full bath beachfront property in the Grand Venetian condominium. Reside in the center of activity only minutes from the airport or city. This unit features comfortable yet high style design with all the modern conveniences. This 11th floor balcony captures an incredible ocean view, and seen to your left is the curve of the Bay of Banderas which provides a spectacular 'city lights' view at night.

Fireworks shot from the Pirate ship and hotels can be seen from the balcony several nights most weeks. A second balcony shared by the two rear bedrooms provides an impressive view of the Sierra Madre mountains and city.

Guests say the photos do not do the unit justice! The apartment is appointed with cable TVs in all 3 bedrooms plus a 40' flatscreen in the living room. Original artwork and high quality prints decorate the walls. All three walk-in showers are unusually deep and roomy, and two of the three bathrooms feature twin sinks. The kitchen is amply appointed with quality cookware and probably every tool or amenity you have at home.

The dining room buffet is stocked with games for your use. The washer and dryer are in the unit and only for your use. Ample towels, beach towels, and linens are supplied. The apartment including balconies measures over 2,000 square feet. Each room has vaulted ceilings with ceiling fans. Other high-end features include halogen lighting, kitchen and bath granite countertops, extra pillows, local and imported furnishings, stylish bed coverings and linens and more.

Maid service during your stay is available for a nominal charge as is grocery shopping in advance of you arrival. One underground garage parking space is allotted for those who have a car. There is easy access to both taxis and buses in front of the building, and building staff or security personnel will summon a taxi right up to the lobby for you. Local property management service is only a phone call away in the event you have any needs at all.

The Grand Venetian has excellent features. You proceed up a beautiful driveway lined with urns of flowering vines from the main street up to the condo tower at the ocean. A waterfall wall greets you at the drive around tower entrance. You then enter the building into the open air, high tropical style lobby. Enjoy the property's sprawling river-like infinity pools with hot tubs as well as the condo tower's own pool, all oceanfront. There is an excellent sit-down pool side restaurant and bar, and pool side waiter service with ample menu.

You can use the Condo's game room with card and pool table, a 12 seat movie room, fitness center, and a spa that offers massages, facials and similar luxury services. All of the above are conveniently located in my tower.

The Grand Venetian neighbors the Peninsula Plaza on one side within an easy 8 minute walk that houses a Starbucks, a video casino, several banks, occasional live entertainment in the courtyard, and several stores. On the opposite side is the Sunscape resort.

Within a 5 minute taxi ride or short walk are several grocery stores, a Sam's Club, Wal-Mart, the Galleria (high end) mall with many stores, the Liverpool Department store, restaurants, a large cinema including movies in English,and activities.

Credit card or bank transfers accepted via VRBO or PayPal.

Why Puerto Vallarta, Mexico? No other destination has the charm of the 'boardwalk' Malecon area, and all the activities of a friendly, happening city yet the relaxed and peaceful nature of a beach resort. There are ample restaurants at every price point and many international cuisines. Enjoy the city or the marina area, or just stay home and take advantage of the amazing property, balconies and apartment.

Shop for beautiful items including pewter, ceramic, and silver. Enjoy the many tour companies providing great venues with excellent customer service and attention to detail. Most visitors to this city become enchanted regulars. It's just not your ordinary location or vacation!

About The Owner

I fell in love with Puerto Vallarta upon my first visit in 2002. I returned in 2003 for several weeks and again in 2005 for several weeks. To this day, the city feels like 'home' with its friendly people, both locals and American and Canadian tourists and owners. The charm of the city, Malecon and Old Town are uniquely its own. You can find great food at every price point, great art, lots of activities, or just hang out on property and enjoy the pools, balconies and views.

Why The Owner chose Puerto Vallarta

One day I would like to be a 'snow bird' and spend my winters here. I could also see being a 6 or 9 month resident as well. I chose this property for the location on the hotel zone which gives you a very deep sand beach and spacious grounds, and the landscaping here with its flowering bushes, palm trees and manicured grass which most hotel zone condos do not have. I love our location because we're so close to the city, yet removed enough to have the spacious grounds and resort feel. Our 'river-like' pools can't be beat and its a beautiful setting for a vacation or to reside.

What makes this condo unique

A good friend of mine is professional interior designer and helped to choose the wall colors, fabrics, art and furnishings. We went for a more stylish and upscale look that is still comfortable and with a down to earth feel. We wanted it to be more of a special experience and more like a 'W' hotel than of a typical beachside apartment. The result is a condo where you feel comfortable to put your feet up, yet you enjoy the look, feel and art around you. Modern amenities also make it special with TVs in every room, a Bose bluetooth wireless speaker to connect to your personal devices and music, internet phone for free calling to the US and Canada, and a kitchen that's probably as well stocked as yours at home.

This is the place to stay for sure! Lee was incredible and very responsive. He answered all our questions right away and nothing was left to doubt. The condo itself is gorgeous and has all the latest technology and essentials. The pool and beach were beautiful and there was a lot of security so no worries there. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: So glad that everyone from the kids to the grandparents all liked it! And yes, the view is great. The full ocean view in front, the bay and city lights are seen to the left, and looking downward you see our beautiful flowering landscape, two infinity pools, the beach and ocean, and you see the pool at the foot of our tower. Great spot for morning coffee, evening sunsets, and the twinkling lights of the city at night!

All the comforts of home & more!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a week at the Grand Venetian. Wow!!! The condo has all of the comforts of home: comfy bed, full bathrooms, full kitchen, dining room and the most spectacular view from the terrace. We started our mornings over coffee on the terrace looking at the beach and hearing the ocean.

Marcos the property manager was friendly and provided tips for local dining. Mr. Colker has paid attention to every detail in his condo. Plus, he answered every question and provided a PDF document with lots of information.

I've used VRBO in the past and Mr. Colker's condo is by far the best! The Grand Venetian has several large pools, pergolas, billiards room and gym. Simply, the BEST!

Do yourself a favor and experience this wonderful condo. Your family will love you for it.

Glad you took advantage of it! Please do come again.

Highly recommend to family or groups of friends

My family and I had a great time at the Gran Venetian. It has everything you need. We spend some days at the beach, pool, downtown, new Puerto Vallarta and Old Puerto Vallarta. It was my first time on the island and was pleasantly surprised with everyone there. The people were nice, friendly and helpful when needed. Marco, condo manager, was wonderful and Mr. Coker, owner, went our of his way to make us feel at home. Next time I plan a trip to Puerto Vallarta, I would definitely book this condo.

Owner's Response: It was great working with you and thank you for choosing my condo! The Bay of Banderas is a great location. The curve of the bay allows for beautiful views and I agree that the Malecon (newer downtown) and the old town (also called Zona Romantica) are close by and have lots to offer. Please do come again!

Great family vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time staying at the Grand Venetian. We are a family of four with two daughters ages nine and seven. We were warmly welcome and by Marco's and he showed us the in and outs of the beautiful condominium. It is spacious, clean and very up to date. The condo has a wonderful view! The pools are great! The restaurant was closed the first couple of days. When it opened we ordered appetizers here and there. The Grand Venetian is centrally located. It about 10 minutes from downtown and 15-20 minutes to Nuevo Vallarta so it allows for one to explore the city. There are many restaurants downtown and some right across the street. We would recommend staying in this condo.

Owner's Response: It was great having you and I am so glad that your family enjoyed staying in my condo! I agree that the location is great: close to everything, restaurant on property and four across the street, yet removed enough that you have the resort feel and spacious grounds, pools and beach. Please do come again!
