Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms plus studio, 3 Baths

Icon Vallarta is one of newest and most luxurious destination in Puerto Vallarta. In fact, it was featured on the April 2010 cover of Architectural Digest for its design by award-winning firm Arquitectonica and unique style of Philippe Starck. In keeping with the exterior, the interior of the condo was professionally designed and is accessible by private elevator. It features a large leather sofa in the den with a large flat screen TV with all cable channels. The bedrooms are equipped with flat screen TVs and cable as well. There is also wireless access to the entire condo. The bed in the 2nd bedroom can be separated into 2 twin beds. The sliding glass doors open to an amazing view of Banderas Bay, downtown Vallarta as well as the mountains. The view at night with the lights of old town light up is just as beautiful as the daytime views.

Location

Located beachfront with mountain and ocean views of the Bay of Banderas. Icon Vallarta is located on the pristine shores of Bahía Banderas in Puerto Vallarta on Mexico´s Gold Coast. Made famous by the infamous affair of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton during the filming of “Night of the Iguana”, Vallarta has evolved from a quaint fishing village into a modern luxury oasis for jet setters and adventure-seekers alike. Boasting 300 days of sunshine a year, it shares latitude with Hawaii and panoramic views of mountains, beaches and the sea. Vallarta is heaven on earth the idyllic location for Icon Vallarta, the most exacting modern beachfront luxury condominium project to land in Mexico yet. Situated only 10 minutes from Old Vallarta and 5 minutes from the airport, Icon Vallarta-World-renowned designer Philppe Starck´s first venture in México- is central to all of the city´s attractions.A large grocery store is located right outside the compound. Also, one of the most respected hospitals in Mexico, San Javier Hospital, is 5 minutes away and accepts most major insurance.

About Steve

My wife, our son, and I live in Texas. The profile picture is from Oct 2010. My wife took our son to the beach, and they found a baby sea turtle and a nest full of eggs. The 'Ecological Police' are always notified, so they can come and take the eggs and turtles and release them at night so the birds don't eat them. We were at the condo in Nov 2010 and they found 75 baby sea turtles which they allowed us to help release that evening just right down the beach from Icon.

Steve purchased this condo in 2010

Why Steve chose Puerto Vallarta

My wife is from Guadalajara, Mexico, and her family went to Puerto Vallarta every summer when she was a kid. She took me there several years ago, and I fell in love with it so much that we decided to buy a place. Icon was the obvious choice for location, quality, and views.

What makes this condo unique

It's amazing how transforming it is when you experience being in the condo. When you have views of the ocean, the mountains, and the marina, it's hard to feel rushed to go outside. The view at night is incredibly romantic. Tower 2 is positioned so that you get the best of all worlds. From the front of the condo, you can see Old Vallarta, the mountains, and the ocean whether you are on the balcony or inside of the condo. From the back, you can see the marina whether you are on the balcony or inside. It's a lot of fun to just watch the cruise ships come and go as well as the pirate ships. When we bought our condo, we bought it for us to use as a second home and not as 'a rental.' We wanted it to be a luxury get-a-away for ourselves and not just a place to stay. So, we used a professional designer to design it and chose high quality and designer furnishings. We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do!
