A Little Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We just got back yesterday

This was the easiest check in. Owners were very accommodating. The property is very spacious and the views of the ocean and the town are wonderful. We have been coming to PV for 20 years. This place had all the modern conveniences and amenities that you would need. Sometimes rentals are very sparse but this had more than you can think of. Owner also has a restaurant just up the street called Las Adelitas.

We walked to Sorianas to do our groceries but a $3 cab ride would take you there. The bus is located at the entrance to the complex and gets you to downtown in 10 minutes for less than $1.

The pools are spectacular and there was hardly anyone around. It was like a private resort. There is also a restaurant on the premise serving good food and at reasonable prices.

We will definitely return.

Spectacular View

  • 4 of 5

Pro: We enjoyed the spectacular view on this property.

Con: The property is advertised as having Wi-Fi in the unit, and in the pool area. However, neither of them were available during our stay in April 2016. Guests before us left a note in the unit indicating that they did not have WI FI either during their stay in March 2016. If you need WI FI you need to go to the restaurant downstairs or go to Starbucks 2 block away. The owner did not address this concern of ours except offering us vouchers for food at his restaurant which we declined.

Owner's Response: Hi Dino, Thank you for wonderful review, we do apologize for the inconvenience of the WIFI and we have began the process of setting it up with a new company! I will email you because I believe we were still settling a $ amount refund for the lack of wifi. Gracias!

Worse VRBO Experience Ever!

  • 1 of 5

I wish I could give this 0 or negative stars. After making the reservation and taking our money, we never heard anything back at all. We tried to contact her tons of times through various emails and phone numbers in the 2 weeks leading up to the trip. VRBO tried to contact her even more times, some of them marked urgent, with no response at all. VRBO wouldn't let us cancel because we had access information, and when we arrived, the place was disgusting. It hadn't been cleaned at all after the previous occupants who were there over a week. There was huge construction outside of the bedroom that was never mentioned. There was a note that said the internet wasn't working, and this was one of the reasons we chose this place, since we had work to do. So, we didn't want to stay there 1 more minute, especially after the complete lack of contact and frustration. VRBO put us up in a hotel for a few nights and we had to pay for the rest. So, we paid double for a vacation that was almost ruined because this absurd situation. I'm still waiting to get my money back from my credit card and we've still yet to hear anything back from this owner. Awful experience. There's no excuse. We were just completely forgotten about and ignored. VRBO was very nice, even though the situation should've never gotten to this point. I just don't get it at all.

Owner's Response: Hello, I am so sorry for my delay and lack of response. You are right that there is no excuse and I accept full responsibility for the situation. I do think its appropriate to give somewhat of an explanation! I do the rentals for my dad but about a month ago I moved back to the states so we are transitioning to find a property manager. I hadnt been up to date on my emails because of the road trip to the states, starting real estate school, and then I was going to take my kids on a weekend trip so wouldn't have my computer with me and my son dropped my phone in water so it was getting fixed and I was then basically MIA I suppose because I didn't have a way to communicate. Since my dad lives there and the cleaning was scheduled I didn't think there would be a problem! However I didn't get his messages that he was leaving to Costa Rica and when they got through the gate (I send the office the rentals for the entire year and update as often as possible but they can be a little unorganized which is why I always send my clients the rules, a rental contract and a document they request as well so we can be sure)you found the condo dirty and couldn't get a hold of anyone. In any other instance I would have sent someone over immediately and given you a gift for the inconvenience of course however I did not know about this until much after. When I came back I had about 400 emails to check, was doing my real estate licensing test and my Nana who was Helping me with my two kids went to the hospital with pneumonia! So many unexpected events occurred at once however there is no excuse whatsoever for my lack of preparation and attention and availability. I've spoken to my father about he urgency to get a property manager that is in PV and to fix the Internet problem. In 5 years of renting it was a beyond rare mess up with some reasoning behind it. We are fixing these problems and taking all their comments into account. We have another property we rent also in Mismaloya and have customers that return every single year with us. I emailed the client 2 days ago and havent gotten a response yet but am now going to take care of the refund. Again, my deepest apology.

Beautifully appointed condo in a fabulous location. Communication could improve.

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this condo for 3 nights and overall we were very pleased with the experience.

Positives: Location! It's an easy and cheap 15 min taxi ride from the airport, which was key for us on this relatively quick trip to Mexico. There are supermarkets within walking distance, and the local buses make it even easier. A taxi to Old Town was maybe $6 with the current exchange rate, or less than $1 on the bus. The property is right on the beach with gorgeous views out over the ocean. At this time of year the sunset was too far north for us to see as a neighboring tower blocks views to the north, but we were usually out at restaurants at that time anyway. During the winter months it is likely perfect. The condo itself was very nice - comfortable bed, A/C that we turned on at night, a water purifier attached to the kitchen sink, a gas grill on the patio (we didn't use it, but thought it was a nice touch). We liked the fact that the Grand Venetian is not a resort (with inflated prices and restrictions on personal food/drink in the pool area), but a residential condo building. There is a restaurant on the premises that is very reasonably priced, and there are no restrictions to bringing your own food/drink down to the pool should you choose that option. Security was great - we felt completely safe.

Areas for improvement: Communication in particular. The emails we received in advance of the trip were from a woman named Kammi, who is located in the US, while the actual owner is in Mexico. On this particular trip there was no communication between Kammi and the owner that we would be there, which resulted in the condo not being ready upon our arrival and almost resulted in a double-booking. Very fortunately, the owner showed up while we were in the unit just after our arrival and he immediately arranged for the room to be cleaned so all was well. Potential renters should know that this is a residential condo building with no check-in desk or on-site staff to help with questions, so communication with the owners will be important. Be proactive if you are not absolutely clear on the procedures prior to your arrival. The wifi was down in the room and had apparently been down for several weeks based on notes that were left there by previous renters. Not a deal-breaker, but would have been nice if it were operational.

Despite those few hiccups, we would definitely rent here again. Lovely condo, convenient location, beautiful views!

Owner's Response: Hello! Its Kammy, I had just responded to another traveler regarding my lack of communicationd during the same dates. I had scheduled the cleaning and then my phone was getting prepared for water damage and I was not at my home with my computer either, so I didnt find out until after about the situation! I send my Dad a link with the calendar that updates simultaneously however hadnt sent him the recent rentals and therefore he thought it was open for some friends. Im so sorry for the confusion and I am glad he got it taken care of!! I apologize for my lack of communication and have spent some time adding contact info and more access information for my clients here ont eh site and also on my check in documents that I send out! The internet company has failed to come after multiple attempts and waiting all day at condo for their maintence men so we have decided to cancel with this company and change to another. I greatly appreciate your positive attitude and great comments and review!
