About The Owner

We were both born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, right in the center of Canada. For our retirement paradise in a few years, we have chosen this condo, as the perfect location. We have visited and traveled through many parts of the southern US and Mexico for the last 15 winters and visited many wonderful places. We have concluded that, for us, Puerto Vallarta is the best of the best. We love the climate, the cultures, both Mexican and gringo, the ocean at our front door, the location within the city, where everything is just a short walk away. You don't need a car! We look forward to spending our whole winter here, once we are both retired. The scenery, the volunteer possibilities, the art community, the chance for easy daily fitness drew us to a city of this size.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Emiliano Zapata

Molino de Agua is a perfect home away from home for us and our guests. It is so well managed, with smiling, helpful staff all over, constantly working in the garden, on the pathways and maintaining the building. The pool is a dream, all set for serious swimmers who want to do their lengths, but huge enough to accommodate those who want to walk or paddle around in the water. And there are lots of safe, shallow places for wee ones to splash and play. The grounds with the hammocks are so inviting! And there are tables to sit and read or play board games, whole overlooking the river and Bay of Banderas. There is always lots of activity in both places.

What makes this condo unique

We are delighted with our condo, as it is the perfect place for a group of 6 or so people....lots of room to enjoy with family and friends! (The futon makes it work for 7). Our favorite way to start the day is to go out the gate for a walk on the beach in the sand, at the water's edge, or the new malecon. Later in the day, the heated pool beckons for fun (including the swim up bar) or exercise and some time in the sun and sand. The enclosed sandy beach is perfect for little kids. Our 6 p.m. ritual is to stop to enjoy the sunset from our balcony, or down by the pool. While the condo is totally modern, you step out the door to Mexico, with a chance to practice our Spanish (although you can get what you need in English) and enjoy your choice of Mexican, North American, high-end food and everything in between. Browsing our Top 100 P V restaurants guide will have you challenged deciding where to eat! Our kitchen is well equipped and the Bar B Q is huge, though, if you decide to eat in. The fresh food and seafood markets are only 2 blocks away and Dominos delivers within 10 minutes. There are many nearby, excellent Italian (who knew?) restaurants, Starbucks and the bank are a 5-minute walk, if you need a fix from either one. You will feel totally safe, with covered parking for your car and security 24/7 on this gated property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to let you know our stay in your condo was an absolute delight from start to finish.  The welcome and orientation from Carlos was gracious and thorough, and the staff at Molina de Agua were uniformly friendly and always helpful. Your beautiful and well appointed home was such a wonderful place to really unwind.  I spent my mornings with a cup of coffee on the balcony watching the waves while listening to my continuing education courses--perfect!

It's clear how much care you've put into the comfort of your guests.  TRULY appreciated!

Best Hosts and Experience Ever!

  • 5 of 5

To start out with: my family and I love, love Puerto Vallarta and visit often--almost always staying in vacation rentals. Molino de Agua is the absolute ideal place to stay--YOU WILL NOT FIND A BETTER LOCATION. Trust me, we've tried. The complex itself is amazing and wonderful--the pool is the best in Vallarta, and the staff (English speaking) will go above and beyond to help you. There is not a bad unit in the complex, but Wayne and Lee's condo is superb. It's located on floor 7 and has spectacular views of the ocean, Old Town, and the mountains/jungle. Few condos are going to offer views of all three--this one does. The linens, beds, and furnishings are luxurious and comfy--think 5-star hotel. Unlike many vacation rentals, this one provides so many thoughtful amenities: shampoo, soap, beach toys, a welcome gift (much appreciated), even a variety of sun screen!

Now, on top of the amazing complex and unit, we come to the very best part and that is Wayne and Lee, the hosts. Generous with their home, their knowledge, their time, their expertise, and their enthusiasm for all things Vallarta, we just found them to be some of the nicest hosts we've ever experienced. Thank you so much for everything--we'll be back!! Just as soon as we can!!

Owner's Response: Oh my, you're enthusiasm is overwhelming! We are so delighted to hear that you enjoyed our place so much. Thanks for choosing us. We think that Molino is definitely the best of the best. After driving much of Mexico, over several fascinating winters of exploration, it was our first choice for our home away from home. Yes, isn't it a great location, within walking distance of so many things you want to experience. I'm glad that the details we provide in our home made your stay more comfortable. It was really fun emailing back-and-forth with you. Glad that you had such a great family holiday. Hope to see you again, Lee and Wayne

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The staff was outstanding - polite, cheerful, and fun to chat with. My granddaughter really enjoyed the pool toys you had, and we all enjoyed leisure time by the pool.

I wish we could have kept the terrace doors open for the really grand feel, but it was in the 90's every day with high humidity. Of course, the air conditioning was very much appreciated, as well as the individual climate controls for each bedroom.

My son & daughter's families were also impressed with the size and quality of the unit, as well as its proximity to local activities.

Definitely want to do a return trip!

Five Stars!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Wayne and Lee,

Our family has just concluded a stay of seven days, arranged by our daughter, at your luxurious condominium, Residencias Molina De Aqua.

The condominium itself, the resort property, the location are nothing less than Five Stars! The thorough information packets and information you provided helped immeasurably to make for a fabulous vacation enjoyed by all. Our grandchildren never wanted to leave the salt water pool,and upon leaving to return home they stated how much they were going to miss the pool. Although, they enjoyed going zip lining, snorkeling etc. they always were anxious to return to the condominium so they could go to "their" pool.

The entire event was nothing less than superb, and we cannot thank you enough for sharing your PV home with us. May Residencias Molina De Aqua always bring you peace, enjoyment, and relaxation.

And yes, the pool is perfect for young old and every age between. We are glad to hear that our package of info ahead of time helped to make it a worry free holiday. Thanks so much for choosing us. We hope you will return some day. Happy travels, Lee and Wayne

What a WOW

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this luxury condo in April for one week. It is a WOW condo, the location is the best that the old town can offer, right on the malecon, across the bridge from the center of towwn, a walk to all the restaurants in the Romantic Zone.

The condo itself is pure luxury, perfectly equipped kitchen, a huge terrace overlooking the town and the sea. The bedrooms and bathrooms are beautiful, big thick towels and all the Amenities of a boutique hotel.

The saltwater pool is huge and beautiful, it has a swim up bar/restaurant catered by No Way Jose.

W e would rent this beautiful condo again, the owners were so amiable and easy to deal with. We highly recommend this beautiful rental

Fantastic family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We were apprehensive about Puerto Vallarta as a new holiday destination and only read about it on Tripadvisor. We are so glad we chose PV as it had so much to offer everyone in our family.

The apartment itself is fantastic – open plan and incredibly spacious. Located at the best end of the town this is the most convenient location in PV. It is literally beach front with the Malecon also only metres away.

Facilities are very good. wifi, satellite TV, ample seating both inside and out and also a BBQ which we used to cook Mahi Mahi from the local fish market on several occasions. Cooking in the apartment provided a break from the terrible chore of having to choose one of literally hundreds of eating places in the immediate vicinity. Restaurants and bars are in abundance and you can choose almost any type of cuisine and all very reasonably priced. The swimming pool in the complex was fantastic with the swim up bar to the delight of most on the hot days we stayed there. Two large bedrooms with ensuite’s and private balconies were wonderful and the third bedroom although much smaller in comparison was more than adequate.

The kitchen was fully stocked with every appliance you might need as well as essential herbs and spices if you wanted to get creative. Located on the 7th floor the apartment looks out over the beach, pool and north side of the town. The views from the balcony are awesome and taking in the sunrise, sunset or people watching or seeing the pelicans dive for fish – it is located perfectly.

This is a very secure complex with security staff and swipe card entrances although the location is so very safe. No one in our family group felt unsafe and one of the few destinations travelled that I have not constantly worried about my wallet. The PV people are very friendly and welcoming.

Lee was fantastic and so helpful with her communication and ideas for our time in PV. She sent us so much information to ensure our holiday was memorable. We would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone keen to visit PV.

Owner's Response: Dear Greg and Carol, We are delighted that your trip all the way from New Zealand and your family reunion in PV turned out so well. The private balconies really help a group, when anyone needs a little quiet time or just wants to sip coffee and watch the sunrise. We are glad that our condo fit the bill for your whole family. Good to try the up- the- street fish market. That BBQ is great, isn't it for fresh, local mahi mahi (to die for!). But yes, it is hard to choose from among the dozens of nearby restaurants ! We appreciate that our manager, Carlos, takes such good care of all our guests. He is a gem. Knows the condo, the staff, the what to do and where! A walking, generous, encyclopedia. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Cheers, Lee and Wayne

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic vacation! Your condo was just perfect...couldn’t have been better. When we walked in there were lots of ooos and aws. The views were wonderful and the location was perfect. Everything we could have needed was provided and all of the staff at the complex were so friendly and helpful. I just arrived back at work this morning and have already been recommending your place to others!

We love the staff and how well they treat our guests! The building and all our balconies have been freshly painted and the marble porch floors polished, so it is all tip top. Thanks again for choosing us. Lee and Wayne

Our most recently added entertainment amenities are our new Bose Bluetooth mini Sound Link system and extra TV, making a total of 3, 2 of them High Def : bonuses for those who cannot leave home totally behind!

And if your idea of entertainment is Barbecuing , you are in the right place. Lovely big new Weber BBQ arrived spring 2016! We love it and so will you.

Our end of town just keeps getting more and more user-friendly and accessible . The sidewalks are being upgraded to be wider and more even. There are beautiful bougainvillea planters throughout the Old Town area, courtesy of the PV Garden club. Many dedicated volunteers have added this extra beauty to our home away from home! There are so many restaurants, old established and new ones each season...the tough part is to decide which to try first. The newly renovated Pier, so beautiful in the evening lighting and the Lazaro Cardenas park, both just a few blocks walk south of us are always great for people watching, browsing, and shopping and eating. Just turn south onto the Malecon, outside the oceanfront gate and wander happily!
