About Andreas

We are both in our 50ties. Javier is Mexican and is architect. I’m (Andreas) born in Germany living 20 years in Mexico. I studied business law and journalism. So I open my own press and promotion agency on the side. I had my own columns in different newspapers and magazines. The promotion for hotel chains broth me also to Mexico. Playa Del Carmen was at that time a little fishermen’s village and here I dripped in to Javier. So we build our first hotel in Playa del Carmen (Hotel Aventura Mexicana) and opened 3 restaurants. We were missing the scene. So when we came to Puerto Vallarta, we said: Yes welcome to the culture and very friendly, open minded locals and a great gay scene. So we moved with our 2 dogs to Puerto Vallarta. We love it here and made in a short time a lot of friends. So we rent our house in Playa Del Carmen for vacation rentals vrbo listing # 376207

Andreas purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Andreas chose Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta seems to become more popular as a vacation spot. With a beautiful ocean bay, beaches, mountains and lush tropical jungle as the setting. Puerto Vallarta has a charming small-town feel, cosmopolitan lifestyle, privileged climate. While retaining much of its old style Mexican charm, a colorful blend of the old and the new, Puerto Vallarta offers an unrivaled combination of simple pleasures and sophisticated charms. Fine dining restaurants, art galleries, upscale shopping centers, internet cafes and nightclubs peacefully coexist alongside taco stands, street-side vendors selling Mexican handcrafts, traditional open air markets and strolling mariachi bands. Vallarta has over the years built up the infrastructure of a modern resort community, ATM machines, excellent airport, modern medical services, drinkable water supply, and a safe, tolerant environment are now all part of the Vallarta scene. The people are very friendly and open minded and here are a lot of opportunities for people with a different (also for gays) lifestyle. So visiting a tropical paradise doesn't have to be a choice between a modern but sterile place or the alternative of a quaint but primitive existence. Puerto Vallarta has all the quaintness, without compromising on any of the modern conveniences. We're located on one of the largest, deepest, and most stunning natural bays in the world, Bahia de Banderas, which supports almost any form of water recreation imaginable. This bay is where the humpback whales come every winter, where dolphins nest year round.In Puerto Vallarta the air is clean, the sun shines without rain almost all winter long, and the sunsets - well, they're as spectacular as you could possibly ask for. Gay bars and clubs are close by and also the famous beach 'Playa Del Los Muertos' a meeting point for people all over the world. Nobody has to be in a closet, in Puerto Vallarta you are free to enjoy yourself and make new friends.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is new remodeled in March 2012, all furnisher are new, it has granite counters in the kitchen and in the bath room. All bed rooms has A/C's. We offer WI-FI, stereo, DVD, TV , washer, dryer, dish washer and a full equipt kitchen. Easy accsess because the condo is in the fist level. So great for people in their age. It great location, just 2 blocks to the beach and very close to the gay beach and bars. You just step out and you have nice restaurants around. Cleaning is incl. in the rate 2 times a week. The balcony with partial ocean view gives you the option to rest and if you like to smoke. You stay in the middle of all what the romantic zone offers, but the apartment is very quiet. There are a lot of vacation rentals near by. Yes some of them are less expensive, but... look at pictures and ask when they were last time remodeled. If you look for a clean Condo and a good service, our Condo is the right place to enjoy your vacation. If you have any question please contact us for more info's. To see more pictures we can send you a slide show on request.

We are looking forward to welcome you

A nice stay

  • 4 of 5

The gentlemen who own the condo were very nice. Javier met us when we arrived to let us in and give us a tour. The pros were that it was conveniently located to all the restaurants, shopping and beach. The bedrooms have air conditioning which was needed. There was also a convenience store close which was nice. The cons were that there is a lot of construction going on around the complex. It wasn't particularly noisy but not very nice to look at. The couch in the living room was not comfortable so it wasn't really a place to relax after a day of being out in town. The bathroom in the master bedroom is quite small, just FYI. Overall it provided us with a clean place to sleep and was in a good location. Also be aware as some of the other reviews mentioned, it is on a hill so you have to be ok with walking up and down to get a little workout.

Owner's Response: Dear Michael, Thanks for your review. The condo is located in the 1st floor, so there is no climbing stairs, also when you wrote mountain climbing, so the block A were you was in is just one block from Las Olas Alta's and this block goes a bit up, so it is just one block, not mountains. You are the first guest who complains about the sofas. There are sofas not beds and we have exactly the same sofas at home, our house guests love them, same like other guests. Sorry when the municipal decide to do some improvements, sorry this is out of our hands, but you arrive on 28 of December 2016 and it is impossible that there was construction noise, because nobody is allowed to construct in the Holidays. Compare to the rest of the romantic zone the building is very quiet located, because the down town is at the moment one big construction, they build now a lot of highrisers, 1,670 new condos. So little bit of temporary noise is nothing agains the noise from the Jackhammers in downtown and day and night cars and busses passing by, so our condo is very quiet at night. Be happy you stayed in this condo for the holidays. Sorry but we can't please all guest, but 99% of our guests are repeaters and the condo is booked by them till the end of April. I recommend you a place outside of town to avoid any noise. A town is a town! Friendly Regards Andreas % Javier

Nicely Appointed Condo but location is just OK

  • 4 of 5

The furniture and decor has been smartly modernized. The beds, linens and towels were good quality, good lighting in rooms and bathrooms and our host and the condo staff responsive and amiable. Wifi was mediocre, which is normal in Mexico. Drinking water provided at nominal cost. We did not use the kitchen. Pool large and clean with inadequate seating options (lots of condos in this sprawling complex). That said, this isn't the place for you if you prize a high walk score. The beach, restaurants and shopping are inconveniently down a steep hill (then back up); lots of stairs. The compact balcony has no view - it overlooks a road regularly used by cars and service trucks. So, if you want a nice place at a reasonable price and don't mind the climb, go for it.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The location of this condo is ideal: close to the beach, restaurants, shops and clubs. The unit is very comfortable and well-equiped with everything I needed, and the complex and pool are lovely. The hosts are terrific and helpful in every way. I am already looking forward to my next stay.

Well located, clean, comfortable & stylish

  • 5 of 5

This place was a real find for us. My wife and I stayed here for the PV part of our honeymoon and couldn't have been happier with it. We walked down to the beaches and restaurants daily, made food in the kitchen and hung out on the porch. Some days we lounged by the pool. Javier was great - really helpful. Highly recommended!

Wonderful Apartment in a wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely excellent apartment. Efficient and friendly booking with Andreas. Javier met us at the apartment. He was friendly and helpful in an unobtrusive way. The apartment was the perfect balance between stylish and comfortable. We stayed there very comfortably with our 3 grown up kids - with an extra bed in one of the bedrooms. There was absolutely everything we needed. The balcony had a gorgeous view. The good sized pool was a great hit with some members of our party. The location was perfect - 5 mins walk to beach and to all the restaurants. I cannot recommend this apartment too highly. We will undoubtedly book again for our next visit to wonderful PV - and would be gutted if it was not available!!
