About Owner

IT Executive for a large US Company. We first visited Puerto Vallarta in 2003 and fell in love with the city. After numerous trips back to enjoy the fine food, beach and people, we decided to purchase an apartment in 2007. At that time it was it was in the planning stages and in 2010 we took possession. We have enjoyed bringing the apartment to life. We hope you will enjoy this great city as much as we do.

Brilliant!!

  • 5 of 5

Alan's condo is everything that is described and more! The views, the views, the views!! OUTSTANDING. The condo is directly on the beach with exquisite views of the ocean and mountains from the front balcony and the city and mountains from the back.

Alan has decorated his condo with modern flare and comfort. I can't express enough how comfortable the beds were from the mattresses to the linens.The condo is equipped with everything you could possibly need from a fully loaded kitchen, washer/dryer to an IPad and Apple TV. Private elevator opens directly into condo!

There is a wonderful beachfront tiki bar with incredible food and drinks at Icon Vallarta. Incredible pool! The temperature of the ocean and the pool were perfect.

Alan was fantastic from the first time I inquired about renting his condo. He rapidly responded to me via email and phone every time I had any questions and was always upbeat, informative, gracious and kind. Alan knows Peurto Vallarta inside and out and was a wealth of knowledge to us during our stay. His dining and activity site suggestions were spot on. The Ocean Grille restaurant, which is only accessible by boat, was amazing nestled on a cliff with your own gorgeous beach. Be sure to dine at Vista Grill for an elegant dining experience at the top of a mountain with spectacular views of the city and the ocean. Order the "Sexy Coffee" if you want to witness the single most amazing coffee experience that you will ever witness...fire included!

If you're looking for excursions, go to no other company than Vallarta Adventures. Worth every penny. Safe, organized, exciting and too much fun! We had a ball on the "Outdoor Adventure" and the "Las Caletas" trips.

The property manager for Alan's condo, Leo, picked us up and returned us to the airport. Leo is a great guy with tons of personality and helpfulness! We had zero issues with Alan's condo but I know that Leo would have been right there if we had.

The concierge service at Icon Vallarta is also first class. We worked with the kindest young man, Andres. Andres was fun, outgoing and informative. He booked our reservations, gave us wonderful ideas and even called the "House Dr." for me when I needed one. Andres always greeted us with a big smile and a positive attitude.

My family and I HIGHLY recommend renting Alan's condo at Icon Vallarta. Our vacation there last week was our most favorite family vacation to date. Peurto Vallarta, Mexico is beautiful!

Loved Puerto Vallarta

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 loved this condo and resort. I'm so glad we didn't stay in an all inclusive. All of the resort staff were very pleasant and helpful. The main pool was terrific. Our kids are 14, 10, & 8 and the pool was perfect for them. We walked to the Soriano several times and took a short taxi ride to old town each day for dinner. We can't wait to come back to Puerto Vallarta and if we do we'd stay at this condo again.

Great View & Exceptional Concierge Services!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful condo! We have been renting condos every March for over 10 years. This year was by far, the best condo we have ever stayed in. Firstly, Alan the Owner, is so accommodating, answers emails very promptly, and is so friendly and helpful. We felt VERY comfortable with the rental process and Alan made everything simple and easy. When we arrived, we were greeted by Alan's property manager, Leo, who was pleasant, organized, and provided helpful details about the condo and the services available in all 3 Towers. He helped with our luggage and gave us contact info if we needed anything during our stay. The concierge service was exceptional. Andre happily booked restaurant reservations, spa services, ordered taxis, etc. Overall, we received the BEST service we have ever experienced in over 10 years from an Owner - Alan, Property Manager - Leo, and Concierge Service - Andre. Thank you all so much!

The location of the condo is perfect. You are minutes away from a short walk to the Soriana Grocery store or an OXO on the corner. The Marina area, Galerias Mall, or Walmart is 5 minutes by taxi and if you're heading to Old Town or the Malecon, it's about 15 minutes.

We really enjoyed our morning coffee on the front deck overlooking the ocean. Just beautiful. In late afternoon when the sun was really hot, we would move to the back deck for our afternoon cocktails! The view from the back is equally as beautiful; you see the entire city and the mountains.

The condo itself was very clean and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything you would need. TV's, with cable, in every room; along with an Xbox 360.

We really appreciated the all-in pricing that Alan offers. In the past, other Owners have charged an additional electrical fee which we never really knew was accurate or fair. It was nice to know exactly how much we were paying upfront; no surprises. For example, we stayed at Tres Mares one year for 3 weeks and were charged an additional $600US for electrical! We were blown away. We rarely use air conditioning, always shut the lights off when not in use, and never leave anything on unless we're using it.

Unfortunately Alan's condo is booked for next March or we would have rebooked in a second!

Thanks again Alan and kudos to you for picking the BEST property manager - Leo. It was a fantastic vacation. Look forward to visiting your beautiful condo another time. Dean and Jenny from Canada

Luxury condo on with a million dollar view in Puerto Vallarts

  • 5 of 5

Picture yourself in a luxury condo on the 18th floor with a drop dead view of the bay and ocean watching the sunset with a fresh banana/papaya daiquiri in your hand. Need we say more?

We stayed for 4 weeks in this wonderful condo and could have easily stayed longer. The unit itself has 2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a den, an open plan living, dining and kitchen, and balconies on the front and back (off the living/dining and the bedrooms). There are plenty of pots, pans and cookware so that you can eat in (which we did almost every night) and there is an excellent supermarket, a five minute walk away, with all the food items you need: fresh guacamole, salsa, chips, tortillas, rolls, pastries and cakes!!! There is a Margarita machine and a super powerful blender to make wonderful Banana/Papaya daiquiris (our favorite).

The high point of each day was cocktail hour out on the front balcony watching the sunset. It’s hard to get a feel from the pictures how wonderful this is; in fact the front sliding glass doors to the balcony open almost all the way to a view that is close to the full width of the unit. The bay and ocean feel like they are a part of the living room!! Each night the sunset was different and beautiful, why go out?

There are TVs with some English language cable channels in each bedroom, living room and even the master bathroom. There is also an Xbox One, VOIP phones, WIFI, DVR, Apple TV, an Ipad and HP printer and a couple mobile phones for your use. We did have some problems with the internet, but as soon as we contacted Alan he got in touch with Telmex and a technician was out within 3 hours to fix it. Talk about responsive!!

The Icon is made up of 3 towers, a huge children’s and huge general pool. You'll find lounge chairs by the pool as well as canopy beds and sofas on which to luxuriate. The beach area has lounge chairs, a bar and café where the drinks are very reasonable . Additionally, there's a large fitness room if you don’t get enough exercise walking on the sandy beach and a business office available to all residents.

The only “negative” we found was that the nearby resorts would occasionally have loud shows at night, and when they had Karaoke there were times when we wished we could put the poor animal out of its misery!! However, the shows almost always ended by 10pm.

In sum, , a wonderful unit, well laid out, fully stocked with a gorgeous view and super responsive owner.

Luxury with Sophistication and What a View!

  • 5 of 5

This is our first time staying in this gorgeous 2 bedroom unit with owner, Alan, and the unit is fantastic! It feels just like home with very modern and comfortable beds. Almost everyone had a TV and the 3 washrooms were great to have so no waiting is ever needed.

We were only two people so the condo was very comfortable. We like how the living room and kitchen have the ocean and pool view while the two bedrooms have the cruise terminal and mountain views.

The kitchen appliances were easy to operate and thE kitchEn is well equipped with cutlery and nice new dishes. There is even laundry detergent, dishwasher pods, as well as garbage bags provided. Every washroom had a bar of soap and new fluffy towels along with two bathrobes.

Every Bedroom had a balcony with comfy outdoor patio cushioned chairs and I like how Alan uses high

Quality furniture and Posturepedic mattresses.

The owner, Alan, was wonderful to deal with as he is very proactive and is on top of everything right away! We really enjoyed our stay and we like to return next Christmas if our Canadian dollar ever regains its strength!

Thank you so much Alan for shAring your piece of paradise with us!
