About the property

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

Our home at the Bay View Grand is located on 20-acres of tropical paradise on the Mexican Riviera in Marina Vallarta which is only four miles from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. We are a 5 minute drive to the airport, and a 10 minute walk to the Beautiful Marina with spectacular yachts, numerous shops, pallet pleasing restaurants, pastry shops, ice cream parlors, tour providers, and a Thursday night Flea Market. The Marina Vallarta is an upscale neighborhood with its own police force. Bay View Grand has the largest Infinity swimming pool in Mexico, an 8000 sq. foot well equipped gymnasium with sauna and steam room, two tennis courts, snack bar by the pool, and beautifully manicured grounds.

Our Designer Showcase Condo in Marina Vallarta has all the amenities one could ask for

• We are right on the Ocean with spectacular views of the Ocean, Pool, Grounds and Puerto Vallarta.

• We are on the 10th floor of the quieter and sought after E- building, which sees every sunset with a different spectacular show every night.

• Our home is uniquely designed with Euro sliding mirror doors between the living room and master bedroom which opens up the unit for a more airy feeling; yet can be easily closed for privacy.

• Spacious balcony has a large Jacuzzi, and breath taking views of the Gardens, Ocean, Mountains, and every Sunset that ever happens.

• Marble floors throughout our home and Granite counter tops in the Kitchen.

• Two Bedrooms. Both have a view of the ocean and grounds. The second bedroom also has a few of the mountains.

Bay View Grand in Marina Vallarta is next door to Marina Golf. Walmart, Sams Club and the Liverpool Mall are a short distance away. We are centrally located and just a short 15-20 minute drive to the famous Puerto Vallarta downtown Malacon; a stone “boardwalk” with bronze statues, sand sculptures, and lots of strolling room. The main Puerto Vallarta downtown area is closed to motor traffic and has the ocean on one side and premier shopping, and restaurants on the other side. The Puerto Vallarta town square comes alive with entertainment in the evening. The fantastic flea markets, where everyone loves to bargain and deal, are just two blocks from the town square. Taxi and bus service is available right in front of the Bay View Grand.

This is not your typical rental. This is our home in Marina Vallarta and we only rent it when we are not able to use it.

Dale is a Certified Master Photographer and we have traveled throughout the World with our photography.

We have been fortunate to make many new friends from all walks of life. We have both become much healthier individuals since moving Marina Vallarta.

Dale Hansen purchased this condo in 2001

Why Dale Hansen chose Puerto Vallarta

We fell in love with Puerto Vallarta when we first started vacationing here over 35 years ago. We visited many other locations in Mexico but nothing came close to Marina Vallarta near Puerto Vallarta. The climate is perfect for most of the year. The people are friendly and the town has a true Mexican charm not experienced in other areas built to accommodate tourists. Marina Vallarta and Puerto Vallarta are as safe, or safer, than most cities in the States or Canada.

What makes this condo unique

Have you always dreamed of visiting Paradise? That perfect location with Warm Winter Climates, Sandy Beaches, Colonial Architecture, Friendly People and Spectacular Sunsets? Then you need to come to Marina Vallarta near the beautiful city of Puerto Vallarta. We always wanted our own place, in paradise, on the beach and in an area that was affordable and safe. We love long walks on the beach and the near perfect climate. The days are warm and the nights cool during those dreaded Winter months. The Puerto Vallarta airport is a short distance as is the town and many activities. The restaurants in Marina Vallarta and Puerto Vallarta are first class and the scenery is unbelievable. We have had many Humpback Whale and Dolphin shows right from our Balcony and the Turtles occasionally lay their eggs right in front of our pool.

Accommodating - with spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5

The home met all of our needs. The condo was perfect for us. Close to many great restaurants in the marina within easy walking distance. The amenities at Bay View Grand - pool, workout room & employees were all great. Only drawback was slooowww internet which owner Dale has since addressed by upgrading connection speed.

My wife & I have all ready booked our next Puerto Vallarta trip at Dale's condo - watching beautiful sunsets from the patio!

Owner's Response: Thanks Bill and Sharon, When you return later this year you will find many improvements along with a faster internet. We also now provide Netflix and USTV Now with 28 of the most popular US channels. We have a new cooking range and a new air conditioning system which is much more efficient, quieter, and has individual controls in each room. Thanks again for staying with us and returning again this coming December.

Bay View Grand Accommodstions Exceeded My Expectations

  • 5 of 5

My two daughters and I stayed at the Bay View Grand from 12/21-12/28/16. I had reservations at the Marriott, but later decided on BVG because my brother & his wife recently moved to BVG from the US, and I thought we might prefer being closer to them.

THE COMPLEX: Cancelling my hotel reservation was the best decision ever! The complex is a 10... amazing pol and gym, beautiful landscape, impeccably maintained, easy to access, close to the Marina shops, restaurants, and boating, It is EXTREMELY safe with 24 hour security and constant ID checks and sign in requirements (which is a good thing - the security staff is outstanding).

THE UNIT: Great location on the 10th floor with incredible views - front and back! The unit is well appointed with wifi, modern (and abundant) kitchen appliances, nice furnishings and a large TV (which I cannot comment on b/c we didn't watch TV). The unit gets an amazing cross breeze if you open the front door (which has a security screen) and the back slider, keeping it nice and cool in the afternoon and evening.

THE OWNER: Dale is kind, responsive, and generous - he is everything you would ever want in an owner. He even offered us a late checkout once he learned that we had a late afternoon departure flight. Nothing went wrong at all on our vacation, but I am sure he would have hopped into action if it had.

If Dale and his family will have us, we will most certainly be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you Brenda, It was a privilege to have you and your daughters stay in our home. We would love to have you return as often as you want. We are currently enjoying our home ourselves and are updating a few items while we are here. We are putting in a higher speed internet. A new air conditioner system which is more efficient, quiet, and has individual controls in the living room and each bedroom. A new high end gas range with an improved cook top with grill. The oven also has a broiler. Thanks again for the review and have a great New Year. Dale and Marian

My husband and I stayed at the Hansen's beautiful Condo for 10 days and thoroughly enjoyed it! We had just a few minor "speed bumps" but Dale was very attentive and got things done for us quickly. The view is spectacular and we really enjoyed sunsets/breakfasts on the patio. Its location is nice if you want to take a walk to the Marina or just go to dinner next door at the Velas Vallarta. You can catch the bus close by if you want to do some sightseeing or going to the Malecon. The pools were well maintained and the grounds were beautiful. We liked the fact that it was very secure. Having a laundry room was an added extra. We love BVG! The people we met were all very nice!

Owner's Response: Thank you Michelle and David, We enjoyed having you in our home and hope you will return again soon. We have always felt that BVG was one of the finest resorts in Puerto Vallarta because of its beautiful grounds, security, and proximity to everything.

Owner's Response: Thanks Rick, It is good to have people like you and your family in our home when we cannot be there. I personally believe that BVG is one of the finest resorts in all of Mexico. The grounds are always well maintained and the pool unbeatable! We personally enjoy just sitting in the pool and watching the waves role in. We hope to have you return again soon. Dale and Marian

Outstanding Bay View Grande

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at BVG before, and I must say that your condo has got to be one of the best custom condo there. Communication with Dale and Maru was excellent and prompt. Screens on all,the door and Windows was well appreciated, as we were able to leave them all open for the wonderful breezes, ther was no need to use the air conditioner, just briefly one hot muggy day. What a peaceful time spent there and throughly enjoyed the sunsets, being on the 10th floor you can see the whole bay. Thanks again Dale and Marian for opening up your home.

Owner's Response: Thanks Douglas, We are glad you enjoyed and appreciate the way we personalized our home. We also enjoy the screens on the doors and windows that allow for great cross ventilation. Nothing beats that fresh ocean breeze. We agree with you that the sunsets are very enjoyable and we see every one that ever happens. We hope to see you again soon. Dale and Marian Hansen

Luxurious Get Away!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks in this luxurious condo in September, which, by the way, is the hottest month in Mexico!

Communication with the landlord & his management team during the planning stage, our stay & after our trip was excellent...very attentive to detail.

Condo is absolutely stunning & comfortable. In-suite laundry was definitely a bonus, along with the well equipped kitchen, games, movie selection & even some English speaking T.V. channels! We enjoyed the jacuzzi on the balcony immensely & the beauty of the sunrise/sunsets. Watched some great lightning shows too!

We loved the 'homey' feel of the place & the ease with accessing amenities within walking distance. The pools & beach were immaculate...we were very impressed with the security of the condo & its grounds, and without being hassled by local vendors.

This was a great retreat for us & would also be a great family holiday location.

Many thanks to Dale & Marian. Holiday greatly enjoyed!

Owner's Response: Thanks Dean and Marilyn, We enjoyed having you stay in our home. We were there shortly after you left and our home was immaculate. We appreciate caring renters like yourself who appreciate and take care of other peoples property. As you discovered, Puerto Vallarta is a great place to have Dental work done. We have talked with many travelers who pay for their complete vacation with money saved on their Dental work. Thanks again for staying with us and we hope to see you again soon. Dale and Marian

Watch the Cruise Ships, Whales (in season), Dolphins, Pelicans, and many other Marine Sea Life from your private Balcony. Or just relax and soak in your own private Jacuzzi. Swim in one of the largest Infinity pools in Mexico. The Marina is just a short 15 minute walk and is full of fantastic restaurants, gift shops, tour companies, and magnificent Yachts. Down town Puerto Vallarta is only four miles away and easily accessible by Taxi or Bus. We prefer taking the bus because of the ambiance. There are many great restaurants all around Puerto Vallarta from the basic mom and pop to the very exclusive. The Sierra Madre Mountains are just a few miles away and there are many tours that will take you into them by Jeep, truck, or four wheeler. Puerto Vallarta is an amazing city that is full of life. Bay View Grand is centrally located with easy access to everything. We have an excellent security staff many of whom speak some English. We have lived in many cities in our life and Puerto Vallarta is by far the safest city we have ever lived in. We walk the streets of the Marina and Puerto Vallarta practically every day we are there and have never had an uncomfortable situation arise. We are close enough to everything for you to have a great time and far enough away from everything for you to enjoy peace and quiet.
