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.
We moved to Marina Vallarta in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico in 2001 after operating a Carriage Trade photography Studio in Sandy, Utah for 30 years. Dale is a Certified Master Photographer and we have traveled throughout the World with our photography. Dale's images have been published in numerous books and periodicals including the National Geographic, World Book, National Audubon, and the cover of The Professional Photographer. He has received three Kodak Gallery Awards. His work has been displayed throughout the country, including three exhibits at the Walt Disney Epcot Center. We have four children and fourteen grandchildren in three different States. In Puerto Vallarta, we are active in the Navy League and the International friendship club and have helped with, and participated in many charitable events in Marina Vallarta and Puerto Vallarta. 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.

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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
Condo is great with some awesome furnishings. lots of space and well kept up! kitchen area had everything we were looking for and more!
the grounds speak for themselves, always something going on to better the place. workers all days seeing to the beautiful grounds.
Had contact with the owners if any issues arose (small stuff) and Dale right on it!
again, beautiful unit in a place we love BVG!
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.

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!

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.
