After raising 5 kids and many yearly trips to Puerto Vallarta since 1985, we decided it was where we wanted to spend more of our time. We have traveled the world over both for pleasure and humanitarian work and realize how much we have always been drawn back to friendly people of culture and warm climates. Puerto Vallarta offers warm climate, wonderful culture and friendly, happy people.
Our grown children, grandkids, extended family and employees consider PV one of their favorite vacation spots for relaxation, outdoor activities, weddings),fine dining in a friendly culture and entertainment. We decorated our unit so that we, our children and our guests could walk in and feel ON VACATION in decadence immediately. One of our sons chose Molino de Agua for his wedding because of our beautiful grounds.
Marlene Frost purchased this condo in 2007
We love the water, all of water life, beautiful views and warmth. We live in the Northwest and have always been on some kind of water. PV is our favorite for culture and being in downtown is the place we chose rather than being far out and having to take taxis. We love walking and mornings on the Malecon offers another experience of the towns people and their culture as they start their new day. It is great getting a coffee at Starbucks after doing the hills of the town for a little cardio.
We love the location, that we can walk to many different restaurants within just a few minutes, the sandy beach, our gated property right in the heart of all the activity. We love the fireworks from our deck every night and watching the Iguanas in the trees across the river. Walking the malecon right out our gate, the security, semi-private elevators and very large terraces off the living room, dining room and bedrooms. We don't need a car but do have covered parking if we rent one. We also love the amenities of the massages across the street, the convienience stores and the neighborhood "Saturday Markets (Nov-May). An english speaking bank is right next door for exchanging your dollars into pesos.
A brand new Fitness Club with 'Life Fitness' machines and many classes to choose from is less than a 3 minute walk. Also within 3 minutes is a brand new wine shop, deli with delicious choices of meats, salads, cheeses to choose from and a beautiful produce section---all with a coffee shop and bakery. Again, 3 minute walk.
We are happy sharing our condo with our children, grandchildren, friends and making 'NEW friends in and around town. We especially enjoy sharing our condo with people like ourselves that work very hard and deserve enjoying a little piece of paradise.
I thought the pictures of your condo were beautiful but now that we are leaving I have to say, they don't do this place justice. Thank you for letting us stay here and for your hostpitality. Everything even down to the matching kitchen utensils was such a treat.
I didn't write a review for 2 months because I couldn't think of anything to say aside from : EXCELLENT!!!
Owner/Manager on site: A+
We had a great time and will be back. Thanks again!!
We have been to Puerto Vallarta 4 separate times. The other times we stayed at traditional, but lovely hotels. This time we thought as we were bringing our adult children, and their significant others, maybe we needed some more room.
This was our first experience with VRBO. Certainly the unit looked nice on the website, but you never know in person.
The property manager arranged for us to be picked up at the airport. We got to the complex, and got to the unit, and it was beautiful. The views, the open doors, the kitchen, the new gas grill, it couldn't have been nicer.
We overlooked the pool, the bay, the old town. We were steps away from a private beach area, and steps away from town. So much to do, so much to see, and so much to eat.
Thanks Marlene for letting us share your property for a week! It was delightful.
We were going to stay at the Four Seasons in Punta de Mita but chose to rent from Marlene. We made the right choice. The condo is luxurious and tastefully decorated with local art. We had two little girls and the pool was incredible. The best pool on the Malecon. I would rent this place again and again.
This condo is stunning in every way - furnishings, views, location, it has it all!
This unit is extremely well maintained. I think we have been spoiled for staying anywhere else after a week here! The owners have thought of everything, we couldn't think of anything that wasn't provided. Marlene wasn't kidding when she said we only needed to bring our clothes and personal toiletries! Everything else was already there - right down to binoculars, sunscreen, chip clips, extra thick bath and beach towels, cooler bags, shampoo, hand soap, and so much more! The beds and linens were wonderful, and the building is very quiet. The two large bedrooms are quite luxurious, and both have their own balconies facing the mountainside. The 3rd bedroom is a bit small and has a frosted glass door that faces the kitchen - it was fine for one person and is still quite lovely with its own ensuite bathroom, but a couple might feel a bit cramped in here and/or might feel uncomfortable about not having as much privacy.
The glass doorwalls open up across the entire front of the unit. It's incredible, and we left them wide open the entire week. There are no bugs, and six floors up, safety was not a concern. There is no direct sun coming in at any point, and the ocean breeze keeps everything nice and cool. We only used the air conditioning in the bedrooms, and instead enjoyed the open air and multiple ceiling fans in the kitchen and living areas.
The grounds and gardens at Molino de Agua are beautifully cared for. Everything was spotless and the staff are very friendly. The security personnel do a great job and we felt a little like celebrities when we noticed people's curiosity about what was "behind the gate". This is clearly the premier property in this area.
We loved having the Malecon right at our gate. It was so entertaining to people watch and so convenient to have restaurants and shopping just a few steps away! We especially liked Daiquiri Dick's (pesto chicken penne pasta), The Blue Shrimp (coconut shrimp), and Serrano's (arrachera steak quesadillas). Pass on the pizza from Pinochio's, the little place just the other side of the river. We walked up and down the Malecon every morning, enjoying the ocean views, sculpture art, and bustling pedestrians. One thing that really surprised us - there are a LOT of dogs. They aren't a problem, it was just unusual compared to other vacation destinations.
What a wonderful week - we hope to return!
I have read previous reviews and any positive review of this property were right on point. My first contact with Marlene left me with a very positive feeling. She is thorough, professional, and was always responsive to emails typically within hours. My original request was for 5 nights, however, there was a 6 night minimum. I was hesitant at first but after the extended winter my friends and I were experiencing in the mid west we acquiesced. Best decision ever! This trip was on the occasion of my 50th Birthday. Upon arrival at Molino De Agua we were met by a very competent and friendly front gate staff. Carlos was not available, but, his assistant arrived promptly after he was paged. We entered in the unit and you can hear a pin drop. We all were blown away by its beauty, its decor and we felt instantly comfortable and at ease. Everywhere we turned we were amazed by something special that could not be captured in any web site photograph. Marlene ensured the property was meticulously maintained and her guests were not in the need for anything. The views were amazing, the amenities were far above par. The appliances were top notch. If you decide to choose this property... all you need to bring with you are clothing, specialized toiletries and a willingness to relax and feel pampered. Marlene has thought of everything in this unit. Staying at Casa de Sol was probably the best vacation I have ever experienced. I pride myself on having visited over 40 countries on 6 continents and this property is truly one of the best I have ever stayed. Marlene made it difficult to leave the unit because it literally sucked you in. From the premium linens and bedding, to the powerful yet relaxing showers, the professionally styled kitchen, to the extremely inviting and relaxing living and balcony areas, to the amazing views there isn't one thing that needed improvement... absolutely nothing. Olga the housekeeper cleaned the unit once during our stay. She is like a ninja. She came and went without notice, yet, the unit was just as spotless as the day we arrived. We didn't see her again until the day of departure. Take advantage of the local shops in the area. Whatever you need is within a comfortable and safe 5-10 minute walk. Usually when one speaks of a vacation they only mention the bad incidents. Thanks to Marlene & the staff at Molino de Agua the vacation was problem free and I would definitely return and recommend others to give Casa de Sol a serious look.
I would highly recommend staying at Casa del Sol. It is a beautiful and luxurious condo. The photos are accurate and depict the stunning nature of the accommodations. The location is fabulous, close to shops and eating and beach. Plenty to do. Buses and taxis are easy to get--though we rarely needed them; the board walk and ocean are right outside the gate in one direction and the romantic zone, downtown is out the other gate. The terrace and the pool face the river and the ocean. The pool has a walkup/swimup bar. We could not have been happier with our selection of Casa del Sol. The owners were available and responsive to communication all along the way. The agent on site was very, very helpful to our questions; the doormen were welcoming and courteous; the maid cleaned on several occasions and did a wonderful job. The condo itself is well equipped with everything needed for a lovely time, including plenty of information packets and notes around to make using the tv, wifi, dvds, phones, etc., accessible. We were a family of 6 and found the spaceiousness perfect. I highly recommend Casa del Sol, and we would absolutely stay there again.
Over 30-40 restaurants within walking distance and lots of shopping and activites along the Malecon make it unnecessary to have a car or use a taxi for more than heading to Costco, Walmart or golf during your stay
