We live in Chicago but feel that Puerto Vallarta is our home away from home. This picture is of one of my sons & myself on our condo's balcony catching up with the rest of the world using the condo's wireless internet connection after a long day on the beach.

We fell in love with Puerto Vallarta on our first visit 20 years ago. The city has an air of laid back sophistication not found elsewhere in Mexico. It has fine dining, art galleries, modern malls & quaint neighborhood shops. It is clean, safe & most importantly, majestically beautiful. the backdrop of the mountains against the deep blue ocean combined with the most breathtaking sunset vistas imaginable make this one of our favorite places on earth.
We enjoy the luxury of the complex's common areas, with maximum resort-like amenities, set in a perfect location. We are located directly on the beach, the other grand venetian building (1000) is located behind us. Our views are unobstructed. Unlike locations past the Pitillal River just to the north of us, or even those located much further away in the Marina area, we are located directly on the best stretch of beach in PV. Just feet away are the beach amenities listed in the unit description. These are not available at many of the less well-situated locations. Starbucks & a modern Soriana grocery store & movie theaters are a short walk away. Costco, Sam's club, Wal-Mart & the gorgeous Liverpool Mall are all nearby. Full security at gate & English speaking property manager lives on site. No keys are necessary, a keycode lock is installed.
My family and I arrived at Marty's condo and I have to say that it was everything and MUCH, MUCH more than I expected. I have been to Puerto Vallarta several times and have always stayed at all inclusive resorts, so I was a little skeptical about staying at a place where we would have to prepare meals etc, but the kitchen is so well stocked that we didn't mind at all preparing meals. With one trip to Costco and another to Wal Mart we had everything we needed for the entire week. An added bonus too is that they have luggage carts to put all the groceries on to make things extremely easy after a trip to the store. The views are just breathtaking and the condo is SO beautiful and spacious and after the week was over we truly wish we had booked for two weeks because we were not ready to head home, but for the future we know!! I highly recommend booking this little piece of paradise! You will be SO glad you did! My mom and I cannot quit talking about it since we have been back. A HUGE thank you to you Marty and your beautiful family for allowing us to partake in this little piece of paradise! :)
My family and I stayed in Marty’s condo in July 2016. We travel to Mexico at least once per year and this was our first time staying in PV. Working with Marty on booking the condo was a great experience.
The property managers, Jason and Cynthia, arranged to have Gama pick us up at the airport. Just a quick 10 minute drive and we were at the condo. They also stocked our fridge with groceries upon our arrival at our request. I would highly suggest this service, we felt very spoiled. The next morning Jason & Cynthia came by to check in on us and to give us recommendations on restaurants, tours, and things to do around PV.
We arrived at 8:30pm so it was dark when we got to the condo. Upon entering into the unit we could see the entire bay with all the lights from neighboring resorts and the city. It was truly a beautiful site. An hour later the fireworks went off downtown which was a perfect welcoming for us. The condo itself is beautiful, we felt like we were staying in someone’s home rather than a rental. The kids had their own room to retreat to at night but their favorite part was their very own ensuite bathroom. We looked forward to movie night with the kids (we brought our Amazon fire-stick and watched Netflix) and morning coffee in bed looking over the gorgeous bay.
Our family went zip lining for the first time and it was an amazing experience, a must do! The day started off with us getting on an open air bus that weaved through downtown and the coastline then up to the jungle. We went on 14 zip lines over the jungle and river and ended our day at a restaurant with a natural pool that was filled from the river. The whole day was exhilarating! The tour was called Los Veranos Canopy Tour.
We also hired a boat captain named Mario to take us snorkeling for the day. We cruised up the southern coast stopping all along the way to snorkel and swim. Our captain told us about each town we passed, the hotels and restaurants. We stopped at one point to have lunch at one of his favorite places and it was a great experience. I would highly recommend doing a private tour vs. the big tour companies. Much more intimate experience and we were in control of where we wanted to go and do. You can contact Mario Castillon on his Facebook page at burton ll sport fishing PVR, great captain!
Marty’s condo is centrally located; you can be at the marina or downtown in 5-10 minutes. In fact, you just need to come out of the condo tower and you are greeted by one of the st
LOVE this place!! The views are beautiful, screen saver beautiful. The decor & layout is so comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked & there is plenty of room. The owners have tied to think of everything. Even if they hadn't, the property managers, Jared & Cindy, who met us to acclimate us to the unit, are easily accessible & very responsive for any questions.
The whole process was easy form the beginning. Marty, the owner, got back to us very quickly and gave us answers to all of our concerns and questions. His responsiveness made the whole process so easy! It seems that he has tried to anticipate the needs of renter's at every step. we weren't wanting for anything!
The location of the building, with it's proximity to downtown & it's truly sweeping vistas of the bay, are the most impressive part of this comfortable & clean unit. The pleasure of watching the gorgeous sunset every night, even from the hot tub on the balcony, makes this unit so very special!
I HIGHLY recommend this condo for a wonderful and relaxing stay in paradise!!!!
As the photos indicate, the apartment is stunning. Within a beautifully designed complex of three buildings, this apartment is in the center. When we instructed a taxi driver where to go, he said “oh, the nicest one.” The building is directly on the beach. The lobby is an open design, and you can see the ocean as soon as you step in. Marty’s apartment is the most ideal location within the center building. The master bedroom provides a view of the ocean and the city lights, while still being entirely private. The balconies are all beautiful, but the primary balcony deserves particular mention. We planned our days in PV around where we wanted to be for sunset. As other reviewers have noted, unlike other rentals, Marty furnished the apartment with high end products, which are all well-maintained. The throws on the bed are cashmere, there are flatscreen tvs in every room. The kitchen is fantastic and well-equipped. It is ideal for cooking what you bring back from the nearby supermarket (5-10 minute walk). We used the blender to make smoothies each morning.
Marty was consistently in contact, and notably consistently patient. In retrospect, the answers to a few of our questions were fairly self-evident (he has clear labels for the wifi connections), but his emails were friendly, prompt and polite. He provided wonderful recommendations for restaurants and activities.
The staff around the complex are always helpful and never intrusive. When in the pool we were occasionally politely asked if we wanted to purchase a drink (and have it brought out to us). The staff by the entrance called us taxis, which always came within minutes. I was worried about getting a taxi the morning we left, since we needed to get to the airport by 5 am. I told the staff the afternoon before, and they had a taxi waiting for us at 4:30 am.
When you can tear yourself away from the apartment, the setting is stunning and the city is a lot of fun. There is parasailing on the beach directly behind the complex. As other reviewers have mentioned, there also is a marine turtle shelter within view of the balcony. The zoo, botanical garden and boardwalk are all worth visits. It is not a coincidence that so many people who have stayed here return. I intend to be one of them.
This was our 3rd stay in this unit and that alone should tell you it's worth consideration. The unit continues to meet all expectations for us and is accurately described and represented in its posting. On site property management was helpful and arranged to pick us up and return us to the airport. We have thought about different vacation spots but all 5 of us just love the size of the unit, private bed/baths, huge deck and large pools. The security and wait staff is attentive and very helpful. Great security presence and never felt like an outsider. Gym equipment, media room and rec area with pool table in excellent condition. The Malecon is even more improved than this time last year so great time to be had down there as well. The units central location makes it convenient to get to local shops, Walmart, Costco and Soriana and Mega. Sunday mornings the main street outside the GV is closed off for pedestrians, bikes and general leisure walks (they do this in Cabo as well) and its a nice time for the family to get out and enjoy the locals, great weather and great food. All the tours and activities are available right on the beach or take off from the Marina ($4.00 taxi ride). We were fortunate to see a giant sea turtle lay its eggs at night and saw the turtle sanctuary staff tending to new born turtles (about 50 of them) that they were set to release the night were were leaving. There is a small sea turtle sanctuary right next to the GV development. Local mexican food favorite Adelita's is just down the street and there are many great restaurants on the malecon and directly on the beach (like the Sea Monkey)- where bottles of beer are just $1.00 and Cabo style Mahi Mahi fish tacos meals are about $6.00. Listen to the waves, feel and smell the ocean and enjoy fabulous sunsets. Although we were travelling with a 16,12 and 8 year old my wife and I never felt crowded in this unit at any time. Its well laid out with direct elevator access that services only 2 units per floor. The unit is stocked with all the essentials - towels, TP, laundry detergent, dryer sheets, beach towels, utensils and has always been clean on arrival. I gladly and highly recommend the unit to couples, girls and guys getaways, families and adventure seekers looking for a fabulous place to unwind after a night on the town or an afternoon of zip lining, snorkling, or sightseeing. The owner is responsive and easy to deal with and all arrangements/paperwork is done well ahead of arrival date.
Excellent it was! I was so happy the moment I entered this condo. Situated right on the beach with views of all PV. My family enjoyed what will be a memorable experience. All the reviews were spot on, and I love the fact everything was available to you. This is the place for relaxation-a massage on the ocean or lay by the pool or adventure on the beach- with jet skis, horseback riding and parasailing. This place was warm, clean and had a good flow throughout. We had breakfast daily on the terrace and went out for dinner nightly. I will definitely be returning!
Keycode lock, instead of an actual key, to open front door. No more heading back down the elevator to get the key from your family member who is down at the pool or beach.
