Overview

Marina Vallarta Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

Our designer showcase Condo has all the amenities one could ask for! We have a large Infiniti swimming pool, beautifully manicured grounds, snack bar by the pool, gymnasium with sauna and steam rooms, tennis courts, and the best 24/7 security in Puerto Vallarta. We are also located in Marina Vallarta, near boating and yachting, many activities, golf courses, four star restaurants, easy and safe places to walk, run or ride a bike. We are also close to Liverpool Shopping Mall and Multi Plex Theatre. 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 closed for privacy. On our spacious balcony, we have seating for 4, a large Jacuzzi, and breath taking views of the Gardens, Ocean, Mountains, and every Sunset that ever happens. We have Marble floors throughout our condo and Granite counter tops in the Kitchen. Both Bedrooms have a view of the ocean and grounds. The Master bedroom is on the front and is much quieter than those condos with both bedrooms on the back. All you hear is the sound of the Ocean. The second bedroom has ocean views out the front and mountain views out the back. Out the back door there is a panoramic view of Puerto Vallarta with frequent fireworks. Cross ventilation throughout our home utilizes the cool ocean breezes. Our kitchen is modern and well equipped. In the living room we have Lazy Boy furniture with four recliners and a large flat screen' 42" HD Smart TV. The TV has one USB port and two HDMI ports so can bring your own device with your favorite movies and plug them right into the TV. The water is purified throughout the condo. There is also Hi speed internet, and a phone with FREE unlimited calls to the US or Canada. This is not your typical rental. This is our home and we only rent it when we are not able to use it.

Our condo is located on 20-acres of tropical paradise on the Mexican Riviera in 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, and pallet pleasing restaurants, pastry shops and ice cream parlors. The Marina is an upscale neighborhood with its own police force. Whenever dignitaries visit Puerto Vallarta, they generally stay in the Marina, at the Marriott which is just up the street from Bay View Grand. We are centrally located and just a short 15-20 minute drive to the famous downtown Malacon; a stone “boardwalk” with bronze statues, sand sculptures, and lots of strolling room. The main downtown area is closed to motor traffic and has the ocean on one side and premier shopping, restaurants, ice cream parlors, and historical sites on the other side. The 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.

About Dale P. Hansen

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

Why Dale P. 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 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. Puerto Vallarta is 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 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 airport is a short distance as is the town and many activities. The restaurants 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.

Snow bird visits paradise

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our months in this unit. We have stayed at various units at BVG and this one was absolutely the best one so far. The unit is extraordinarily comfortable with lovely furnishings. The marble floors throughout the unit are beautiful.

Since we lived there for three months, we truly appreciated the excellent dishes, pots and pans and having adequate storage in the kitchen. Although it may seem trivial, having a well equipped laundry room definitely helped with that mundane task.

Bay View Grand is, in our opinion, one of the best properties in PV. Its location not only provides a beach front location but also is convenient to the grocery store and the Marina for dining out.

Overall, the most memorable part of this unit is the breathtaking sunsets from the terrace. Whenever it was possible, we would enjoy dinner on the terrace listening to the ocean and watching the sun set on another perfect PV day.

Owner's Response: Thanks Dennis and Sandee, We really enjoyed having you in our home for three months on two separate occasions. You are both great assets and well liked by the BVG community. We really appreciated the care you took of our unit. You treated our home as your home.

Breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

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!

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

Living the Dream

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bayview Grand, in this condo for 3 months - Jan - March 2015. As far as we are concerned, there is ONLY one property in PV - Bayview Grand. The property features the most spectacular view of the Bay of Banderas, with beautiful sunsets. We have been staying at BVG, for more than ten years.

This condo is well appointed. The furniture is comfortable, with lots of art on the walls. The panty and the kitchen are a pleasure to work in - with enough room for 2 cooks!

Lunch/dinners on the patio overlooking the property and the ocean, is a favourite pastime. Marble floors throughout add to the artistic touches throughout. A well appointed laundry/storage room is a valuable asset - lots of room! It truly is a home, rather than just another rental property.

On site manager is responsive, and the owners are a delight to deal with.

We loved it so much - we are already booked for Jan- March 2016!

Marian and Dale, thanks for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home!

Owner's Response: Thanks Jan and Marry, We look forward to your return in January. You two are such great renters and we appreciate your taking good care of our home during our absence. You are absolutely correct abut Bay View Grand being the best property in Puerto Vallarta. The grounds are spacious and well groomed. The pool is unbeatable. The security is top notch. Location, Location, Location! We are close to everything, but not too close to anything but the Ocean. We look forward to the day we can spend more time there. Have a great vacation. 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 s. Puerto Vallarta is an amazing city that is full of life. Bay View Grand is centrally located with easy access to everything. They 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.
