Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms - 2 King + 2 Twins + Full Sofa / 3 Full Baths + Half Bath - Sleeps 8

Hi:) A quick note to everyone.. We have noticed positing’s that state “Downtown Puerto Vallarta” and yet you still need a car or a taxi to get to downtown. We are 100% DOWNTOWN and DIRECTLY on the BEACH so you can walk to everything - NO car/taxi needed, just an FYI.

Completed in 2009 This truly unique and 1 of a kind two story ocean front penthouse features three master bedrooms & 3 and 1 half baths + 3 amazing balconies with ocean and mountain views from the roof top decks.

Located on Camarones beach in downtown Puerto Vallarta and just steps away from the Malecon sits Puerta al mar. This boutique beach front Mexican style building has traditional Mexican finishes. Puerta al mar also offers elevator service, swimming pool, jacuzzi, outdoor bar, direct beach access, covered parking with attendant and 24 hour security.

Located in downtown Puerto Vallarta, also known as 'Viejo Vallarta,' which is the site of the original fishing village that turned into a world-renowned tourist destination. With cobblestone streets, a pretty town square, and Puerto Vallarta's most famous landmark, the cathedral our lady of Guadalupe, 'el centro' has a unique charm and character of its own. A mile-long boardwalk known as the 'Malecon' runs along the downtown oceanfront street, Paseo Diaz Ordas, where you will find shops, restaurants, galleries, specialty stores and traditional marketplaces facing the ocean.

Paradise may be considered a state of mind, but when visiting Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, one definitely experiences a real life paradise.

Marina Vallarta golf club located in marina Vallarta, 3.6 miles, since most of the fairways are lined with palm trees and guarded by water, a premium is placed on accuracy.

Flamingos golf club located in nuevo vallarta, this traditional-style course enjoys the reputation of being the easiest to play because of its wide-open fairways.

Punta Mita jack Nicklaus signature golf located 40 minutes to the north, there are two 18-hole courses. Pacífico eight picturesque holes bordering the ocean. Hole #3b, called the “tail of the whale,” is a 194-yard, par 3 that plays across the ocean to a rocky island green. Bahía has seven oceanfront holes and is a little more challenging than

Mayan palace golf club located in Nuevo Vallarta, this is a fun course, though bunkers and water hazards are everywhere. The #14 signature hole is a beautiful 166-yard, par 3 with the ocean on the left and a lake on the right.

El tigre golf club located in Nuevo Vallarta, this is a lengthy course protected by traps and water throughout. The mammoth finishing hole is the par 5, 621-yard “tiger.” most golfers find it untameable because water runs all the way down the left side and the multi-tiered green is surrounded by sand.

Vista Vallarta this is actually two spectacular golf courses at one location, 5.2 miles, just 10 minutes east of the airport. The Nicklaus course has garnered worldwide recognition since hosting the 2002 emc world cup championship.

Located right on Camarones beach and within walking distance of all the action in Puerto Vallarta.

  • 5 of 5

Relatively new property with all mod cons including washing machine, clothes drier and AC. Furnishings are modern. An elevator provides easy access to higher floors. Views from the veranda are superb and expansive of the Bay of Banderas, especially when viewing a spectacular sunset.

The property's private beach is just a few steps away and the swimming pool on the property is just the right size. There is also a nice entertaining area adjacent to the pool.

One of the biggest assets of the property is the friendly helpful staff. Night security is provided.

Paradise in Puerto Vallarta

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful two week vacation we had at this beautiful property! We stayed here with two other couples (6 of us) and each had our own bedroom, bath and private balconies as well as tons of closet space. There was another large balcony off the living room for the six of us to gather for a meal (we made use of the grill provided) or just sit and chat. Spent most afternoons either by the immaculately maintained pool or on the beach, just a few steps from the pool area. The property is located a few blocks from the Malecon, perfect for the morning or evening stroll.

Paulette was easy to work with making the reservation and was quick to reply to any and all inquiries we had about the location. I celebrated my birthday during our stay and she was kind enough to provide a birthday cake and a complementary bottle of wine. The chef prepared my birthday meal along with her helper and it made for a very memorable day! All of the staff including, Berenice, Jorge and Yolanda, did a wonderful job seeing to any needs we had during our stay.

I would highly recommend staying at Puerta al Mar.

One of a kind!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 6th stay at Puerta al Mar and it never fails to exceed our expectations. The condo's are spotless, spacious and well appointed. The staff at Puerta al Mar are wonderful. They are kind, helpful and attentive. Paulette, the owner, is responsive and offers many extras at the condo to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable.Topping it off is location, unbeatable!

A great place to stay in PV

  • 5 of 5

It was easy and enjoyable! Paulette made things very easy and the condo is great! The 3 bedrooms are large with bathroom and and plenty of storage space! There are 5 balconies, so the views of the bay and the mountains are endless! From sunrise to sunset....you won't be disappointed!! We did have the airport transfer and even though you can get a taxi for much less, it is worth it! No worries and Jorge takes great care of you! We actually like the grocery store 1 block away better than Walmart. The corner grill was great for lunch!! the fish tacos were a favorite of my children, along with amazing guacamole! A nice short walk to the boardwalk, a little farther to the romantic zone....but a great location for living like a local and enjoying PV!
