About Barb Bentley-Swales

My husband introduced me to PV just a few years ago. I immediately fell in love with the people and culture and knew I wanted to own my own home here. We bought our home to have a place to recharge and it certainly does that. We travel from Calgary Canada in just 4.5 hours so it takes no time to get here.

Barb Bentley-Swales purchased this condo in 2012

Why Barb Bentley-Swales chose Puerto Vallarta

The moment we walked into our Penthouse we were mesmerized by the views, open concept space and the 2 large separate outside living areas. There are 2 large master suites each with their own en-suite bathroom and walk-in closets - also a 3rd large bedroom with en-suite bathroom.

What makes this condo unique

Spectacular Ocean views from every room, three large bedrooms with private en-suites, 2 large outdoor living areas and a safe and prestigious area. Many upgrades and quality furniture and linens.

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

My guest and I between the ages of 21 to 45, enjoyed our 4 nights and 5 days here in Puerto Vallarta. Everything worked out accordingly, and the concierge were available anytime. Everything on the pictures were spot on. The condo was very clean. The views are amazing, especially the top level. The condo had everything we needed to cook and was labeled and organized. The only con I have, was that there were not enough towels and hand towels. The washer and dryer was such a plus, because we were able to come back with clean clothes. This condo is so close yet so far away, since it is on top of a hill, it is very quiet and peaceful. But a short walk down the steep hill could take you to either to the beach or town. The dipping pool was only used during the day because it was too cold at night. The taxi cabs arrived less than 4 minutes every single time so make sure you are ready. The wifi isn't as strong but it worked. Overall we had an AMAZING trip and I will definitely come back to stay in this property.

Thanks Barb

Spacious condo with beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 3 couples, no children. The condo has a great layout for a group like ours as it provides sufficient privacy as well as common areas to gather. The views are beautiful as it sits high on a hillside. The trek up the hill from downtown to the condo is pretty steep--us older folks managed it several times, while the younger folks chose to cab it each time (go figure!). We hired a chef to come in and cook a couple of delicious meals for us. The only downside with that is we ended up with a lot of extra food that we weren't able to eat. The two main-level showers had sufficient hot water, but the upper shower needed to run 5-6 minutes before the water began to get hot. At that point, it did get quite hot. The main pool is on the small side and does not get a lot of sun throughout the day, but we enjoyed it and only once was there someone else in there with us. The upper pool (hot tub) was relaxing and provides a beautiful view. It did malfunction while we were there, but maintenance came quickly to resolve the issue. The condo is generally very quiet. There was some construction going on next door which was a little noisy, but it looks to be a short-term project. We enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to choose this condo again!

Awesome View, close to town and beach.

  • 4 of 5

Very spacious Penthouse. Modern features. Everything was as described or pictured on Homeaway.ca. We had a very nice three week vacation with beautiful weather and a beautiful view each morning while eating breakfast on the main deck. The upper deck with dipping pool and lounge area was great for sun tanning and just sitting in the evenings.

The walk down to town is steep, but after a couple times, you get used to it. cabs run up and down the road, so, if you need one it's reasonable (50 pesos) to most places in town.

There are many great restaurants in Old Town and on the other side of the Rio Cuale. Walmart, Costco are a cab ride away or take the bus if you want. You can catch a bus in town. Just be sure to read the windshield to see where it goes. Closer groceries are at the end of the Malecon. The store is LEY (sort of like a Safeway with a Pharmacy / hardware store upstairs. Note: There is no elevator in LEY, you just park your cart at the bottom of the stairs and go up and get what you need.The store is super air conditioned. A cab from LEY to the penthouse is 60 - 80 pesos. Be sure to ask cost first.

Walking back up to the Penthouse is only advised for the fit. It is very steep.

The Penthouse is in a condo complex called Monte Vista and it's located in Amapas, an upscale are above old town and the romantic zone (zona romantica).

Superb Puerto Vallarta Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this place. Everything was as described (if not better). We loved the views....and the two pools were great places to relax and lookout over the Bay and the city. The house was beautifully decorated and maintained. It has everything you'd want or need, and the kitchen was well supplied with every type of utensil. We loved cooking there. So, I'd definitely go back on my next visit to Vallarta. And recommend it without hesitation to family and friends. Thanks so much to Barb and Hector for making the whole process easy and enjoyable!

Fantastic!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say? This property has it all. Very comfortable, all items you need are here and good quality, the views are amazing and it is a great location. The hill is too steep to climb and I am in good shape. You will have to take a 50 peso taxi when going where you need to go but coming back to this paradise is worth it. Barb is amazing at answering all questions and she has our trust. I will be back our next visit to Puerto Vallarta.
