About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This dreamlike condo suite is suspended 12 FLOORS above the Pacific Ocean and the Mexican Riviera.

Astounding views merge with uncommon décor to create a one-of-a-kind vacation for you and up to 7 other people. With 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and corner location with a huge wraparound balcony, this condo will enchant you from the moment your in-unit elevator doors slide open.

Casa Kimberly Dawn is the best of the best – the crown jewel condo at Icon Vallarta.

And you found it!

Enjoy your own personal travel concierge—one that I employ specifically for Casa Kimberly Dawn guests—plus a valet, security, laundry service, a private beach with full-service bar and grill, fitness and spa center, and a sparkling infinity pool that appears to flow into the sea.

Your Casa Kimberly Dawn concierge will be available throughout your stay to make suggestions or restaurant reservations, answer questions, and help in an emergency.


Here, you’ll feel at home, while also sensing that this is a place unlike anywhere you’ve stayed before.

I designed and decorated the unit with loving care down to the details. I wanted to create a space that’s comfortable, yet a little bit surprising.

Our guests agree that Casa Kimberly Dawn is tops at Icon Vallarta (the above quote is from one happy visitor!).

Here are some of my favorite details:

Cobalt blue walls contrasted with a sunflower yellow L-shaped couch. Reclaimed, rustic wood tables accented with metal detail (the coffee table is made from reclaimed railroad ties found in Thailand). A warm, modern kitchen wrapped in wood. Some knockout pieces of art, like an imaginative chandelier over the dining table, and a coral tree in the living area.

An accent wall created from wood etched to mimic waves showcases a 50” 3D flatscreen with Apple TV and Netflix for an unsurpassed movie night by the sea!

And most attention-grabbing of all—a wall-to-wall glass view of the Pacific coast and the endless sky.

Beyond the sliding glass doors is a HUGE wraparound balcony—one of the largest in the building. Two balcony areas offer dining space, lounging space, and morning-coffee space.

Need to work a little while on vacation? Set up shop in the den at the desk with printer. Or, take your laptop to the balcony and tap out some emails in view of the Pacific Ocean. Free Wi-Fi reaches every corner of the condo. We also provide free Vonage phone service, with free long distance calls to the US & Canada. A cell phone is available for local phone calls.

Another feature we love: open the front and back balcony doors, turn on the ceiling fans (found in every room), and experience a cool cross-breeze from the back bay that refreshes the entire apartment.


You’ll want to enjoy at least one meal in this stunning eating/entertaining area facing boundless ocean views. One dining table seats 8 indoors. The other, out on the wrap-around balcony, seats 4 to 6.

Uncork a bottle of wine and hit the kitchen to prepare a gourmet meal with stainless steel appliances and all the kitchen utensils and tools you could need, plus a few common spices, oils, salt & pepper, and condiments like ketchup, mustard, and relish.

Other appliances include an Espresso machine, a wine fridge, a washer & dryer, blender and toaster.

Because the dining and living areas are adjacent, the cook doesn’t have to be miles away from everyone.

Don’t feel like cooking at all? Not a problem. The Icon Vallarta provides room service delivery from their restaurant, OR, even better, a personal chef will come to your condo and prepare a special dish for you right on the spot.


Three luxury bedrooms can coax anyone into a glorious night’s sleep.

All three bedrooms feature en-suite bathrooms stocked with organic toiletries, butter-soft Jennifer Adams sheets, flat screen TVs, iPod docking stations, and access to the wraparound balcony through 8-foot glass sliding doors, which also ensures that everyone wakes up to a spectacular view of the coast.

Because you’re booking the trip, you should claim the first Master bedroom, with wraparound views on two sides and a king-sized, pillow-top bed with a one-of-a-kind Christopher Guy Pebble Headboard. From this cloudlike space, wake up in the morning to the sun rising over the mountains. The en-suite master bathroom features bowl sinks, spa-quality towels and organic toiletries, including shampoo, conditioner, and bodywash dispensers right in the shower.

The other elegant Master also features a king-size, pillow-top bed and hues of old-world silver and sage green. The third bedroom—in bright, sunny yellows and rich blues—has two twins that combine to create a full-size for flexible accommodations.


Car rental is not necessary. Attractions and shopping are within walking distance, and taxicabs are readily available. The grocery store is within 5 minutes walking distance, and a general store just 2 minutes away.

If renting a car, there is one assigned complimentary parking space for this unit in the underground parking garage. Valet parking is also available at no additional charge.

About owner/property manager

I first visited Puerto Vallarta in my early 20s and I fell in love instantly…as early 20-somethings tend to do! From that first moment, I started dreaming of owning a place of my own in P.V. someday, and the dream stayed with me.

Fast forward a bit: I met my future husband, brought him to P.V. and he fell in love, too! We married in P.V., and now have our two beloved condos here. Some days we feel as if we’ve woken up in heaven…we’re both so grateful that our mutual dream came true and that we’re able to share a bit of our dream with our guests!

owner/property manager purchased this condo in 2010

Why owner/property manager chose Hotel Zone

The Hotel Zone on the Pacific Coast of Puerto Vallarta offers the best of both worlds. We enjoy the quaint shopping and Old-World feel of the town, with its cobblestone streets, wonderful artist community and diverse dining options ranging from a street-side taco stands to fine French and Mediterranean gourmet cuisine. The vibrant nightlife of Puerto Vallarta boasts several nightclubs and entertaining live shows.

Then, when you want, you can unwind at a quiet spot on the beach—or perched above the beach in one of our condos—with the hush of wind and water in your ears. We love that Puerto Vallarta provides these two amazing experiences!

What makes this condo unique

It's incredibly safe, and the people are very friendly. You will strike up conversations with people on the elevator, the bar, the gym… all of them interesting and with unique stories. Even better, it's a condo that feels like a luxury hotel. Everything you could ever think of or want is here. And our units, specifically, have been designed to be “top of the line” at Icon Vallarta, with innovative décor, artwork and custom furnishings, all situated around stunning views of the coast.

Every year is better than the last!

  • 5 of 5

I think we are addicted to this special place. We are barely home and already thinking next year. Happy to say we have rebooked for 2017. Icon is the best property in PV--more boutique hotel than condo development and Rene and Steve's Casa Kimberly Dawn is the best of the best. The condo is equipped with everything you could imagine you would ever want or need. Add to that spectacular Bay of Banderas sunsets --it just doesn't get better.Rene and Steve are lovely to deal with and left us new suggestions to explore in dining . Outstanding were new restaurants Barrio Bistro( our favourite) and Bravos in the heart of Romantica Zone.We have enjoyed 3 visits to this property and are anticipating another great adventure next year. If you come you will not be disappointed.

Breathtaking Beauty!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a fabulous six week vacation staying at Casa Kimberly Dawn. Rene and Steve (the owners) have gone to great lengths in creating this jaw droppingly beautiful three bedroom home - incorporating the finest details in décor and design. The attention to every amenity provides an experience that is beyond 5 star! The bedrooms are gorgeous with wonderful high end linens, towels and bathrobes. The view from the massive wrap around balcony provides an incredible vista of Banderas Bay. We invited friends over for cocktails and watched the spectacular sunset. On some days we could spot whales in the bay. It was magical!

The Icon property is very much like a boutique hotel with very helpful concierge service and a wonderful staff of people only to happy to help in any way. The grounds are meticulous with pools that stretch right to the beach area. The location is perfect...close to shopping and grocery stores with taxis at the gate ready to take to into town or to several new restaurants in the area.

The property manager, Marcos is outstanding. He welcomed us upon our arrival and was always available to answer questions or attend to special needs.

It does not get better than this! We'll be back next year.

Owner's Response: Peter & Ingrid Thank you so much for your eloquent words. “Thrilling news” to hear that Casa Kimberly Dawn has won your yearly competition as “The Best Condo Suite”. It is very fulfilling to see you enjoy all the beauty of Casa Kimberly Dawn. Even more pleasing to hear your daughter describe the beds as “floating on air”. We are happy to be a part of you returning again and again each year, building more memories to take home, and last a lifetime. Rene & Steve

From the beautifully decorated suite to the stunning oceanview this suite offers it all. This is our 3rd time renting from Rene and Steve. They have thought of everything, from the fully stocked kitchen, the luxurious bedding, Apple TV, free long distance etc.. This year we used the services of the resident Chef. He prepared a spectacular meal for 9. The property manager, Marcos , was also a big help. We can't wait to return once again to this little piece of Paradise. See you 2015.

Photos could not do it justice

  • 5 of 5

This stunning condo exceeded our expectations. The spectacular views of the ocean, mountains and city are just the beginning. The large rooms are beautifully decorated in a style that is chic and utterly unique. Everything was immaculate, fresh and in good repair. The towels and linens were wonderful, and we loved that there were toiletries in every bathroom, bathrobes in every bedroom and beach towels and beach bags provided for our use. I enjoyed this unit and complex better than any 5-star resort I have ever visited, because it had all the amenities I wanted, but was also quiet, private and wonderfully spacious. I would go back tomorrow if I could.

Absolutely incredible!

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I walked into this condominium to begin our 4 night stay and we were blown away! It is gorgeous and the views are stunning!

The suite is very clean, comfortable, and well appointed. There were many extras like beach bags and robes available for our use which were very convenient. The property manager and concierge were friendly and helpful with whatever we needed. We enjoyed relaxing on the huge balcony mornings and evenings. You can see both the sunrise and sunset due to the size and orientation of the suite! Amazing!

Can't wait to return some day!

The description of the condo is exactly as listed. Balconies that wrap around the entire condo from front to back with absolutely stunning views!! The sunsets were truly amazing! No need to ever leave the condo.

The condo itself was spotless, spacious, beautifully decorated with all amenities you could possibly need including a fully equipped kitchen, Apple TV, netflix, several phones for your use including one for long distance and a cell phone for local calls. The beds and bedding were very luxurious. The bathrooms were roomy and fantastic. Closet space in all the rooms was great. The pool and beach area are outstanding!

Some of the restaurants that had been recommended by the owner and concierge were amazing - La Palapa, Vista Grill, Cafe Des Artistes to name a few. The young adults really enjoyed a day of adventure zip lining, water sliding, etc - the concierge helped to arrange this great day.

The staff, concierge and property manager were all very friendly and accomodating. The owner left us a bottle of wine and a picture frame as a special gift for our 25th anniversary. How thoughtful!!

We would love to come back and stay here again and would hightly recommend it.
