About Amy or Bill Welch

I have owned a house at La Puntilla, between Bucerias and La Cruz for the past 15+ years. Because our house has been so successfully rented, my friends have asked that I help them rent their condos and houses. I gladly do so, as I have seen each of the condos and houses and can verify that they are top quality.

Mexico is wonderful - the first thing people ask is, 'Is it safe?' We have driven all through Mexico and have had wonderful experiences from Merida to San Miguel de Allende, the Copper Canyon, Guadalajara, Zacatecas, Oaxaca, and throughout the Puerto Vallarta region. Come experience the magic of Mexico - the food and people are fantastic and welcoming.

Amy or Bill Welch purchased this condo in 2012

Why Amy or Bill Welch chose Mexico

ICON VALLARTA is located on the beach by the Krystal, no car needed, which is a plus. Only 3 miles south of the airport. Take a taxi or bus to play golf at the nearby Marina Vallarta, or to Old Town, or the Malecon. Walk to Soriana or Sam's Club or WalMart grocery stores. Walk to the Cruise Ship dock to board the pirate ship Marigilante or take a day trip to Yelapa.

What makes this condo unique

This condo has a private beach club with restaurant and bar onsite. There is also a spa, jacuzzi, inifinity pool and lots of other extras. You'll have to tear yourself away to leave the luxurious grounds.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Amy,

Been back a couple of weeks now, and have finally caught my breath. I wanted to write you and Thank You and Isabel, for making my Condo stay super fantastic !! From checking in with Brandon, dealing with the Maid, " Momi" I believe, communicating with Isabel and finally checking out with Brandon. You guys made everything super easy and stress free for me. I was very impressed and pleased with everyone's professionalism.

I also wanted to assure you that your unit is being well looked after, and is in great condition. There was not one thing broken, missing or worn down. I was very impressed. It is important to me to have the little things taken care of, and it definitely shows with you guys.

Thanks again, and take care.

Great Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great vacation rental with an absolutely fantastic view. We had a very easy time scheduling our stay. Plus, the online access to information regarding the area made trip planning very easy.

The Icon facility is top notch--a very personable and helpful staff. The unit is equipped with everything you could possibly need while on vacation. And beautifully decorated. The handbook provided in the unit gives great info on touring the area, restaurants, etc. The common areas are beautiful and add to the overall appeal of the unit.

I know the unit is designed for 2 people, but it is perfect for a family of 3, also. Thanks to everyone for a wonderful stay!

It was truly an amazing experience staying in this unit at Icon Vallarta! The views are breathtaking, and the condo is very special-----beautifully & thoughtfully decorated, very comfortable, and includes every amenity. Icon Vallarta is a sleek and modern complex, yet luxurious and comfortable. Amy & Isabel were very accomodating in our last minute arrangements, and Isabel was very hospitable and attentive to all our needs during our stay. We give our highest recommendations.

Amazing condo with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a one week stay at this fabulous condo, and all we can say is WOW. We were met by the property manager upon arrival, even though we were much later than expected. There is nothing that the well equipped condo lacks, and the amenities at Icon Vallarta are second to none. The photos shown are exactly what you get. Morning coffee and evening drinks on the balcony, with that spectacular view, are what dreams are made of. Thank you for making your condo available for rent. We hope to return again soon.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review, Clair. We appreciate your comments and are glad that you had a great stay. There are less expensive Icon condos, but none that are better designed or have the amenities that this condo has. Thank you again, for your kind words. Bill and Amy
