Overview

About the property

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 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 our security personnel will summon a taxi right up to the lobby for you. My 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 planted urns from the main street up to the condo tower at the ocean. A waterfall entry greets you at the tower's lobby entrance. You 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 La Isla outdoor shopping plaza that includes a Starbucks, several restaurants, and ice cream and a frozen yogurt store, a dine-in deluxe movie theatre with movie choices in both English and Spanish, and many retail stores. The Peninsula Plaza neighbors our three towers to our right and has two banks which is great for making safe withdrawals and changing the larger bills to smaller denominations. On our left 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 including 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 high end 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 nearly as well stocked as yours at home.

Unbelievable

  • 5 of 5

I am not sure which adjective to use to describe Lee's condo. I don't think a single adjective can do the justice. It's unbelievable, spectacular, breathtaking, beautiful and more.

Looking out the window of our taxi from airport, we were very skeptic on what to expect at the condo. But as we approached the building we were pleasantly surprised. Water fall at the entrance of the building was very nice. As soon as we got off our taxi, manager greeted us and condo staff asked us if we needed cart for our luggage. The property was very clean, staff was always available for help. Manager took us to the condo and did the walk-through. After that there was only one place our family wanted to go, it was at the beach front gallery. I don't think pictures can do justice to the view you see from this gallery. It's breathtaking. I don't think anyone can get tired of this view.

As for the condo, it's very well maintained. It's clean, everything was working properly, we didn't use everything, but toaster, fridge, washer, dryer etc was working as well as very clean. All rooms and bathrooms are bigger than average. Beds are comfortable to sleep. The living room has plenty of seating. WiFi is available and fast enough for multiple streams (but not too many) and water is purified for drinking. As stated above, the building is also clean and well maintained. There are multiple very clean (infinity) pools as well as multiple Jacuzzi available for you to swim. There is also a hot water Jacuzzi. All the pools are located right on the beach. The property is near many restaurants, banks and a new mall right outside of the gate which includes full service theater which plays american movies. It's also quick taxi ride away from Malecon, Marina and Downtown. Before your journey begins, Lee will send you plenty of info about the condo as well as quickly answer any questions you have.

Overall, this was perfect home away from home for my family. We will definitely stay at Lee's condo again if we ever go back to Puerto Vallarta.

Owner's Response: It was wonderful having you and your family! I'm so glad you loved the appointments and view. I agree that the restaurants in front of us in the new La Isla outdoor mall and the three immediately across the street are both excellent, and a huge convenience! Please do come again.

Perfect View

  • 5 of 5

Lee's condo is the perfect home away from home when visiting Puerto Vallarta! Lee is a dream to work with he is very responsive to your questions or needs.

This was our second stay at the condo and it was perfect for our family. We are a family of 7 ages 13 years to 50+ and we all were very comfortable and it suited our needs perfectly. We cooked a family dinner and dined on the balcony, we enjoyed the pools (daily), we walked to local shops and grocery stores, took the bus and a taxi everything is so easy and convenient to get to. PV has lots to offer everyone if you want adventures they've got them you just want to sit and let your troubles float away you can do that too, shopping, sightseeing or anything else your vacationing heart desires.

We would absolutely stay here again when we visit PV, and hopefully not in the too distant future.

Amazing Condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful condo. As other reviewers have already said, the condo is better in person than it is in the pictures. The view from the balcony is fantastic with its mountain and beach views. It's also beautiful in the evening with the downtown light views. The condo is centrally located for easy access to many restaurants, stores, and a short taxi ride to the downtown area and the Malecon. The owner, Lee Coker, is so nice. He ensures all your questions or concerns are addressed immediately. Before our stay, Lee provided everything needed to ensure getting to the condo and our check in was smooth. During our stay, Lee addressed an issue with the air conditioning. We did not even know there was an issue with the air conditioning. That's just how responsive Lee is. There is an onsight restaurant serving a great breakfast, lunch, and dinner in addition to the restaurants near the condo. You won't believe your good fortune if you are lucky enough to stay in this condo.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful comments and for choosing my condo! You were wonderful to work with and I do hope you'll come again! My local property manager is very good. When he checked on the place just before your arrival he said the living room/dining room air conditioning didn't seem to be kicking on correctly. That's how we knew it needed to be attended to and we had it done immediately. I laughed when I read your comment that you didn't even know there was a problem! That is our goal, for my guests to never have to be the first to know of a problem if it all possible, and to take care of anything very quickly if there is one.

High Expectations Exceeded in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

I could write a book here and it still would not be enough to adequately portray how wonderful this place actually is. Throughout the entire booking process, the time leading up to our trip, the time we were there and the time since, Lee has been an absolute delight to work with. The night before our trip he even spent over a half hour on the phone with us giving us tips and pointers on what to see and where to go.

The condo unit itself is absolutely fantastic. Everything is as described and everything is in perfect order. The views are spectacular. The Grand Venetian grounds are impeccably manicured and maintained. There is ample security everywhere, although they are in no way intrusive. The location is convenient to everything you want to do and access to taxis and public transportation is available right out front.

Again, I cannot possibly say enough about how beautiful this place is and how great Lee was to work with. Our family will definitely be a repeat customer, if not a neighbor as we looked at purchasing a unit of our own while we were there.. We will be back! Thanks, Lee!
