Luxury Penthouse with Private Pool

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 4 - 5 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Pictures are worth a thousand words - and that is true for Casa Frangipani. Welcome to our home and we are thrilled to share it with you. Our luxury penthouse is one of a kind. It has a large, 800 sq. ft. deck, with a private dipping pool. We enjoy a panoramic view of the bay in the front, and beautiful green mountains at the back. The deck also features a lounge area, BBQ facilities and outside dining. The 2-BR 2-BA home is well equipped, with everything you will need to make your stay luxuriously comfortable. Of course we have the obvious washer-dryer, etc., but we also take pride in our attention to detail and high quality - from the linens to something as simple as a first aid kit for your use.

Our home is ideal for four, but can sleep six comfortably. The large sofa in the living room pulls out and is a comfortable queen size bed with the added benefit of waking up to a beautiful ocean sunrise!

For your entertainment, we have beach stuff down in the bodega, a collection of books, a chess set and a number of movies to watch on a huge, 52-inch TV. We have no satellite or cable connection and that's deliberate. We think you'll enjoy wind surfing far more than channel surfing! However, if the fancy takes you to catch up on your favorite shows, we have a common TV area just one floor above. The floor also has a common-area computer room with internet. The entire complex is Wi-Fi enabled, so you can surf the internet sitting on your private deck! The floor above also has a well equipped gymnasium and recreation area. The complex also has a large, heated pool with palapas for shelter from the sun.

The condo complex is unique in the Puerto Vallarta area. Just 52 units, it is private, with a sense of community. Yet, it's wonderfully close to all things fun. We're just across from the beach - literally! We have a number of restaurants - one within walking distance. Super-markets are a short 10-minutes away and the new Wal-Mart is hardly 5 minutes away. We're 20-minutes from the airport, about 30-minutes from downtown Puerto Vallarta and about 45-minutes from Sayulita. Taxis are easily available outside the complex. We do arrange concierge services, airport drops/pick-up, cooking, excursions, etc. Just contact us and say the word! Our wonderfully friendly, perfectly bi-lingual (English and Spanish) property manager will be happy to help.

So, come stay with us at Casa Frangipani. We would love to have you. Thank you for considering us and reading our posting.

About The Owner

We come from two ends of the planet, and met in California. We consider ourselves citizens of the world and love the rich diversity of culture, foods and tradition. We embrace all things new and are willing to try almost anything at least once! Between the two of us, we speak 5 languages and are working hard on Spanish. For fun, we dive, play keyboards, play Japanese taiko drums, and dance the Argentine Tango!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Nayarit

We're planning ahead! We have a long way to go to retirement, but by the time we get to retire, there may be no beachfront property left, or none that we can afford! So, we planned ahead and are thrilled to share our home with you. We researched all of Central America and picked Mexico - and didn't have to go further than Nuevo Vallarta. It's beauty, the generous people, great food and cosmopolitan spirit was exactly what we wanted. We looked at over 50 houses before we picked our penthouse. The view from the deck takes your breath away. It's peaceful, tranquil and drop-dead gorgeous. The home was just the right size and the deck with the pool was more than we could ever ask for.

What makes this condo unique

Our home reflects our vigor for life, love for diversity and respect for different cultures. Our property is a home first, everything else later. You'll experience that in our attention to detail and the love that's gone into every inch of our home. As in many cultures, a guest is highly honored - we hope you will feel that way in our home and all that we have provided for your enjoyment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

For all those who were concerned about internet service, we have changed providers and the location of equipment and have great internet service within our home. This is a private service just for guests. The condo has its own WiFi service, but the reception isn't good. Ours works great. Thanks!!!

A Wonderful Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month at Casa Frangipani and the condo was exactly what we had hoped it would be. It has a wonderful outdoor space which really made the stay incredible. It allowed us to do as much or as little as we wanted to do on any particular day. We watched beautiful sunsets right from our very own viewing area! The inside is comfortable with a well equipped kitchen and their is privacy between the 2 bedrooms. The wi-fi was upgraded recently and worked well. Other residents/tenants were very friendly and welcoming. Sandra (Property Manager) took good care of all our needs especially when we first arrived as this was our first time in this area. The owners (Suparna & Michael) were fabulous to work with and always responded immediately to any enquiries we had. All in all it was a wonderful holiday and we have already booked for the winter of 2018!!. A great big thank you to Suparna & Michael for allowing us to stay in their beautiful condo.

Another Great Trip!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year in a row staying in this unit so we knew what to expect. Its a wonderful condo with a view that simply can't be beat. There is nothing in your way as you get to watch the sun set every day. PV weather is amazing and the condo is as well. Very clean, well appointed. Internet worked fantastic this year which was great. I would recommend this place in a second and the owners are first rate to deal with.

We stay at Casa Frangipani, last week and we love our stay there, Thank you Suparna for let us stay at your home!, we try to take care of yours as we take care of ours. The photos are exactly as you see the condo, clean and very well equipped. Even our stay was in Holy Week and the occupancy was around 100%, the condo was very quiet and noiseless, There is a beach club (ETC) right across the street, also there is the D Gourmet Deli, less than a block, (near Marival Residences) with great food and good prices, for breakfast, lunch and dinner, (they also offers delivery), The owners and the managers (Allison and Sandra) was very kind and helpful, with fast response and courtesy.

We have an issue with the WiFi, It was slow and it has no full coverage in the condo. The only things we suggest to improve is the TV cable, (I think people like to see some news or sports games), the size of the mattress, and the WiFi, but we highly recommend this property and we hope that we can get back soon!

Owner's Response: Gracias, Gerardo!! You are welcome back any time. Yes, the WiFi has been a thorn in our side. After this season (in April), we will change providers and the location of the box. We are paying for a good connection - and will find a better provider who fulfills our needs. I will look into the pay-as-you-go TV service you suggested - thank you. Thanks again!! Truly appreciate your kind words. Come back and stay with us soon!

A very enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of the condo and terrace looked very good, but it is even better in reality. There is lots of room on the terrace, the pool is a wonderful bonus and the view of the beach is lovely.

The condo is well equipped, nicely furnished, and very spacious.

The condo complex is very nicely designed and the pool and surrounding area is very pleasant. The beach is beautiful and very easy to get to from the condo.

The only negative is the lack of consistent internet service and no TV service, but there is a large selection of dvd's that can be watched on the TV.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay, David. Thank you for your kind comments. Yes, the private internet for our home works much better than the general condo internet connection. We have asked our property manager to move our equipment to the front room so that people can access the WiFi easily. The DVDs are a great source of entertainment (popcorn and movie night!!). We deliberately keep the TV disconnected because we want people to enjoy where they are and what the place has to offer, rather than watch TV. But, we can make it available for long-term renters. Glad you had fun! Come back and stay with us!

A Fabulous Experience

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this condo at the Nitta and found that it exceeded our expectations! The unit itself was quite large and more than comfortable for our two-week stay. The balcony/terrace was even more beautiful than the pictures show! The beach is right in front of you so you are no further away than if you were staying at the RIU down the way. We found the owners to be very courteous and extremely helpful all the way through this process. We would highly recommend this condo to anyone!

Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5

We recently had the pleasure of sharing this condo with another couple. We had researched this property in the spring of 2015 and used it this past February. It met our expectations by a mile and even more. Its one thing to see the balcony in pictures. Its another to sit down every night and watch the sun set to the West. We wondered how much we would use the mini pool, well the answer is lots... The condo is very clean, well appointed and very comfortable. We met a number of wonderful people by the pool and owners in the building comment on how this unit has the most amazing view. The one site people were wonderful, security was great. Very safe area to enjoy a vacation. Close to all the action and towns. Highly recommended.
