About Rita Law

I am a property manager in California and purchased this condo at Acqua because of its design, proximity to the ocean and the relaxed atmosphere. The staff is helpful and most accommodating. I decorated the condo with fun and entertaining in mind. Be my guest and experience the fun and excitement of Mexico.

Rita Law purchased this condo in 2008

Why Rita Law chose Nayarit

I chose Acqua, in Nuevo Vallarta because of the weather, warm ocean, and its proximity to other Mexican towns. I don't like the noise and busy streets of Puerto Vallarta. Acqua is beautifully landscaped with zen gardens and fountains. The guests there are Canadian and Americans mostly. A good group to get to know. Many lasting friendships have been made there.

What makes this condo unique

This property is located on the sand. There are private cabanas where you can shade yourself, read a book; mothers can nap their children, or just have a romantic rest with that special someone. The gardens are gorgeous with fountains, lawns, reflecting pool, zen areas with lounges for watching the sunsets.

Awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5

Rented the condo from Rita again for 2 weeks. We are returning renters. What we've noticed is management has improved, grounds are better cared for and more security.

It was such a delight to have decent wifi!

Loved everything about the unit. Used the beach umbrella and chairs a couple of time.

Loved the location. Beach is right there. 3 pools. Lots of beach loungers and cabanas. Easy walk to Bucerias and Mega.

Very relaxing.

Highly recommend.

Would rent from Rita again when we come back to Nuevo Vallarta.

A very relaxing 2 week vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Rita's condo between March 7 to 21. We are 2 adult couples.


Neat, clean, spacious and up to date.

It has ALL the supplies that you'll ever going to need.

It's like staying at home; where you have all the supplies, accessories and conveniences.

Full size fridge and 4 burner stove. Microwave and coffee maker.

BBQ on the balcony. What a bonus! Used that a few times during our stay.

Flat screen tv, ipod stand.

Washer and dryer.

Internet speed ranges from "dial up speed" to fast. It's finicky!

Building: Looks a little worn. No need for concern.

Grounds: Well kept. 24 hour security.

Pool: 2 large ones and another by the beach for swimming laps. clean and well kept. No problems getting pool loungers, sun shelters with mattresses and pillows. Very quiet and laid back atmosphere.

Beach: Awesome! Sandy and not rocky. Not busy compared to neighboring hotels.


North side of Nuevo Vallarta bordering on Bucerias.

25 minute leisurely stroll to Mega (supermarket that has everything)

Taxi rides - just ask the security guards. Takes 2 minutes.

25 minute leisurely stroll to Bucerias (south side).

The location is very safe because you have to go through several security check points to get to the building.

Absolutely no concerns to your safety!

Owner of Condo:

Awesome to deal with.

Prompt in responding to questions or concerns.

I will absolutely rent from her again without hesitation!

Highly recommend!

Other remarks:

Rita (owner) suggest a "pay it forward" to the next guest; which is a great idea! Example: when we arrived after a long plane ride, we wanted ice cold beer to quench our thirst. We found them in the fridge.

We liked the idea so much, we decided to "pay it forward" also to the next guest in a generous way.

Unlike timeshare where you have to dispose of everything before you leave. which is such a waste!

Great Time

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks at the condo and had a great time. There were 5 of us and we had lots of room and it was great having washer and dryer. Another bonus was having the barb b q which we used a few times. There are a number of great restaruants in Becerius which you can walk to in 15 - 20 minutes.

The young gentleman at the secruity gate were very helpful and speak fairly decent english. Mega grcoery store is 15 minute walk and the new Walmar is a 10.00 taxi ride.

The best part of staying at the Acqua is the massive pool and pool area, lots of loungers and usually very serene.

Would love to come back and would have stayed another couple of weeks if work didn't interfer with vacation.

Coming back for a third time

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent condo, priced very well, bright, and well appointed with great beds, very nice furnature including a fold out couch, and more than enough cookwares. This is our second time renting this property and will be back for a third. The washer/dryer means we can travel light, the grounds and pools are pristine and well maintained, with the security group friendly and helpful.

If you are looking for an awesome place for a family vacation, look no farther.
