Overview

Nayarit Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This cute 2 BR/2 BA condo has a master bedroom with a king sized bed & an en-suite bath. The second bedroom has lots of space and two twin beds. There is a full guest bathroom too.

Air conditioning is available in each bedroom and the main living space.

The kitchen comes equipped with a refrigerator, stove top, a microwave, coffee makers, a margarita blender, a water cooler, a counter oven, & a slow cooker.

Condo Sereno has wireless internet that reaches to the pool.

Condo Sereno is located in the Suites Malvinas, an older three-story six-plex. Suites Malvinas is on a cul-de-sac which makes for low-traffic. There is one off-street parking spot. In addition, the caretakers of the property live on-site, gates are locked in the evenings and lights are on for safety.

There is a shaded private upper level beach with lots of room for entertaining, relaxing with a book or taking in an always spectacular sunset. The garden area near the pool offers plenty of room to spread out and relax! The common area with the Z-shaped pool & palapas is very inviting. The pool is well maintained, and has two levels; a shallow end for sitting back and a deeper end for a refreshing dip. Our unit has two dedicated lounge chairs.

If you fancy the ocean and the beach, we have a beach umbrella [apparently, we now have two], a mat, four beach chairs, an ever changing number of boogie boards, and some equipment to help you make a sand castle.

If there is anything we have not covered, please send us an email and ask.

Disclaimer: We do not think you can find a 2BR 2BA on the beach at this price. But, we ask you to remember that Condo Sereno is Beachfront on a Budget, not Beachfront with a Butler. As the reviews state, people seeking luxury accommodations / perfection might not enjoy this place.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I just returned from a week stay at condo Sereno. As she explains, it's not the ritz, but it's clean, comfortable, safe, right on the beach, and we enjoyed every minute we were there. The beds were comfortable, the cable tv was fun to explore and the sectional in the living room was very comfy. The two bathrooms were a great perk and the washer dryer combo was a great convenience. We arranged for Nancy to pick us up at the airport and she was hilarious and so much fun to be with. She told us where to go and all kinds of tips for our trip. The location is PERFECT. We walked everyday and explored this charming friendly little town. We made friends with people and never have we felt as comfortable on vacation as we did in this condo. Jan is amazing to work with and her condo is perfect for a nice quiet get away. I would not hesitate to recommend Condo Sereno! Bucerias is a wonderful little town with all you could want. I can't wait to go back. A special thanks to Nancy for going the extra mile to make us feel welcome and at home.

A Perfect Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Condo Sereno was a perfect ladies get-away. The condo was clean and fully stocked with anything you might need, including a blender for the requisite margaritas. The property was immaculate, the pool crystal-clear, and the shaded patio was perfect for a leisurely breakfast, watching the beach-walkers, dolphins, and birds. Ramon and his wife take very good care of the property and were also wonderful in answering any of our questions. Jen, Sally, and Nancy were so helpful with all the details of the trip: getting there, good places to visit, the logistics of the condo, etc. Bucerias is a smaller town, easy to navigate and full of small restaurant gems (you must get the fish tacos in the plaza). The condo is RIGHT on the beach and it couldn't have been more relaxing. Highly recommend!

Cozy Beachfront Condo

  • 4 of 5

We spent Spring Break at Condo Sereno this March, and loved the location, and the cozy condo. The condo is nicely equipped with everything that you need for the perfect holiday! The pool is so inviting, and the ocean just a few steps away. The ocean was just like bath water, once you got in you didn't want to get out! There are lots of unique restaurants within walking distance, and a great flea market for all those souvenirs. Jen made this a very easy process, and made sure everything was arranged for us. She has some really nice people that look after the condo and are just a phone call away. Jen has put together a binder in the suite and it provides you with all those "inside details" that are so helpful to know. We will definitely be wanting to return there some time! Thanks Jen!!

Great location, great view, great all around!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for six days at Condo Sereno in March 2016. The condo is very comfortable with all the amenities. The view overlooking the pool and ocean is lovely and the location is ideal, a short five minute walk to the Plaza and many great restaurants near by. All in all, a wonderful place to stay whether for one week or three months. Check availability since it is in high demand.

A quiet relaxing get away!

  • 4 of 5

Four adults stayed at condo sereno for 2 weeks. It was a very comfortable space for two couples and had great ocean views. The elevated grounds and gated access to the beach was great. Sitting under the shelter, overlooking the beach provided for stunning evening views of the lights and ocean. The pool was a very nice touch on the hot afternoons and was kept very clean. Beach was great and the location of the condo allowed easy walking to Bucerias and access to buses to travel to other locations. Bucerias is a very short walk away and provides a variety of restaurants and shops to visit. The management team that Jen uses to look after guest were excellent. They were always very responsive to any issues or requests. I would recommend the pickup and drop off service they offer from the airport as it is hassle free. The caretaker was very friendly and was more than willing to engage in dialogue even if language was a bit of a barrier. There were very view if any vendors on the beach and the ones that we ran across were friendly and not pushy at all. It was great to be able to buy pastries made fresh that morning from a vendor walking the beach. This unit was great value for the cost. We would stay there again. In November we had the facility basically to ourselves. The brochure on Condo Sereno accurately reflects the facility and amenities although it is a little older than the pictures may portray.

Wonderful condo with everything you need

  • 4 of 5

My mom and a friend of ours took a girls trip to Bucerias for her 60th birthday. We had never tried VRBO and usually stayed in all inclusive resorts. What a wonderful experience we had. Jen, the owner, was extremely responsive and helpful from the time we booked the trip. The condo was nice, not a four seasons if that's what you're looking for, which we weren't. The private beach and pool were added perks. If you're not a high maintenance person and are looking for an authentic experience in Mexico, I highly recommend trying Condo Sereno. We will definitely go back.
