About Amy Welch

Mexico is wonderful - the first thing people ask is, 'Is it safe?' We have driven all through Mexico and have had wonderful experiences from Merida to San Miguel de Allende, the Copper Canyon, Guadalajara, Zacatecas, Oaxaca, and throughout the Puerto Vallarta region. Come experience the magic of Mexico - the food and people are fantastic and welcoming.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have rented this condo for six years.

It is the best condo we have rented for the nine years we have been coming to PV. We have treated it as our own, including leaving items for the following year.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Great location, but the unit itself is beginning to show its age. Shower doors leak, 4 of the 7 knobs on the stove are broken (particularly irksome with the oven as it's impossible to determine the temperature!), the dishwasher broke during our 2nd week. A new one was delivered during our final week, but it was not installed and we had to navigate around a large crate in the middle of the dining area for the balance of our stay. However, we were not there to live indoors! The property and the pool are immaculate; the staff are very friendly (unless you have to deal with Raphael who kowtows to the owners and dismisses renters when he's having a bad day!), and the on site restaurant and its owner Pablo are a treat. Being in Mismaloya is far enough away from PVR to escape the hub-bub, but close enough to get into town with ease. I would definitely recommend it. Again, the beautiful location far out weighs any deficits.

Beautiful, relaxing, friendly vacation spot.

  • 5 of 5

This condo is located on a cliff with the ocean waves crashing on the rocks right below you...very relaxing to sit on the patio and listen as the sound relaxes you. You will also see turtules, colorful fish, and pelicans right from your chair.

The inside of the condo has been totally renovated with new counter tops in the kitchen and stainless steel appliances Including a dishwasher. The living room has comfortable furniture, new flat screen TV and a nice music system.

In my opinion, this is the best place to stay in Puerto Vallarta. It is very safe, close to town, great friendly staff and very fun people that stay here.

Mismaloya Condos

  • 5 of 5

We have spent part or most of the severe winter months (January - February) at this lovely location overlooking the stunning beach at Mismaloya, and have booked through this owner's representative for three seasons. The unit is impeccable, up to date and well-equipped. Everything is as described, and a great value. You can stay twice as long in Mismaloya for the same peso as you can stay in Miami (if you wanted to stay in Miami that long!). Beyond the basics, however, is the congenial group of owners and renters. We have made many friends we stay in touch with and see year-to-year. The condo is a short trip to the lively town of Puerto Vallarta with restaurants galore, Margarita's at sunset and plenty to do when one wearies of the beach and the pool. Side trips from here also provide diversion for those who are adventurous. We'll be back in 2015.

Puerto vallarta escape

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome 10 days in beautiful Puerto Vallarta. Check in was so easy thanks to Francesco and the staff. The condo was fabulous. The decor, the layout, the view and the amenities were just as the pictures seen on line. The only thing missing was a washer and dryer, but we did not have a need for either. One thing that might be difficult for some was no elevator in bldg 7, but the staff was helpful with the luggage.

We had breakfast on the deck overlooking Mismaloya most mornings. Unfortunately, the restaurant and bar by the pool was closed as most of the owners had left . We had breakfast at the condos Girasol <table write by the water> just 5 minutes with the bus or we went into town and enjoyed fabulous pancakes at the pancake house or Freddie Tucan on basilo badillo

We met some lovely owners and renters by the pool and were given several recommendations. At the beach at Mismaloya ask for roger who will take good care of you and the food is very good and fresh. In the town of Mismaloya, we had a lovely dinner (very reasonable) at Tony's . The fish was fabulous and the service was excellent

We had several wonderful meals in town some new to us and some old favorites. Pollos on aquiles serdan (great bakery. K Rico as well)la cigale on hidalgo, Mediterranean cafe on Mina Behind the church and the blue shrimp and la palapa and daiquiri dicks on the malecon. All were very enjoyable

We went out to Bucerias (blue and white to Walmart and change to bus to Bucerias. The town and restaurants has grown and we ate at el Chevero on the beach to a great band. The food was good as well as the service(try the coconut shrimp) the higher end restaurants (marks) is over the kissing bridge. There are many boutiques as well.

The highlight of our vacation, besides the great weather 83 degrees and little humidity, was the boat tour thru vallarta adventures to las caletas to see the RYTHM of the night. Don,t miss it. It is worth the money the buffet is incredible

We would difinetely recommend this lovely condo and look forward to returning possibly next year. Puerto Vallarta is friendly safe and filled with many activities for all ages. Having returned for the 6th time, it feels like home. R and J

A truly amazing hideaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I visited during the steamy hot low season with our 16 month old son and I cannot give the condo a higher recommendation than the 'excellent' that is available, otherwise I would. The condo is an amazing value; you get more for your money than many 4 star resorts. Complete privacy, peace and quiet, jaw dropping views from your own balcony, above and beyond concierge and housekeeping services, I could go on.

Mismaloya itself is incredibly charming, a true fishing village with some of the most genuinely kind people you could ever meet. Visit Tony's for a fabulous meal of fresh seafood and meats; Juan's for amazing fish tacos and greet tequila (ask Juan for his private blend); the kind gentleman barbecuing pollo al carbon in front of his home who will sell you a whole chicken with rice, tortillas, and sauce all for 80 pesos; the lovely lady selling fresh corn tortillas every morning; the awesome zoo where you can pay a little extra to have your little one play with tiger cubs! Take a boat ride and go snorkling for a couple of hours. Gaby and his son Aron took us out one morning and were incredibly gracious. Just ask around down at the beach.

Bill and Amy provided incredible service as property managers. Email with any questions and a response is always super quick. Not to mention the detailed booklet of information about the entire Vallarta area.

In short, book at stay at this condo if you really want to wind down and relax in some plush accommodations. The condo is spacious and updated throughout, obviously well maintained and thoughtfully cared for. Mismaloya is a true gem of a destination if you want to see a real Mexican fishing village as opposed to a big touristy resort in Puerto Vallarta. We can't wait for our next visit!

Condo La Jolla de Mismaloya

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this property to vacationers. Beautiful location, well kept building as well as condo. It is a quiet location, yet just a short bus ride or taxi into town if your looking for more action. You also have access to Mismaloya beach which is quite lively and offers water sports, etc. The restaurant located at the condo is excellent, we spent much of our time hanging around the condo area on this trip because we enjoyed ourselves so much as it is so appealing. We definitely plan on returning.
