Los Muertos Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 2 Full Bathrooms, Sleeps (2-4), Private Heated Pool

This warm yet modern condo is in the brand new development Amapas 353, in the heart of the Romantic zone, a few steps from Los Muertos Beach. Close to the shopping, restaurants and night life of Old Town, with many delicious dining options, fabulous galleries, boutiques and night clubs. Casa de la Cruz is located on the 4th floor of the gated complex of Amapas 353 with 24 hour security and an infinity pool.

Our PV Condo has a unique design of one bedroom and two full bathrooms; a breathtaking ocean view condo with upgraded floor plan offering exceptional bay and city views with a private heated dipping pool on the balcony for you and your guests to enjoy in privacy.

When you enter Casa de la Cruz you will immediately notice the quality of this designer-furnished unit from the luxurious accouterments to the original fine art made for local artisans. Nearly all of the original, quality furniture is hand crafted by local artisans: carpenters, iron craftsman, seamstresses, and painters who all take enormous pride in their craft.

Master bedroom:

King size bed, multiple closets and plenty of storage options, air conditioning, iPod docking station + CD/DVD player, washer and dryer conveniently located in its own closet, en-suite bathroom with shower (multiple water sources), flat screen TV with premium cable channels, balcony with a sweeping view of the bay and direct access to our private dipping pool. Downtown city views are great too allowing you to watch the periodic firework displays from either of the two balconies.

Living & Dining Areas

The living room is warm and comfortable with custom handmade furniture including a sectional that converts to a queen size bed, original artwork, large flat-screen TV with premium cable, twin natural cowhide and leather swivel chairs, hand-forged metal lamps and more. The dining area converts from seating for 4-6 with benches providing not only smart seating but additional storage for guests. The glass wall collapses and opens up to a beautiful balcony with additional seating, tropical plants and even some hot peppers for guests to enjoy. There is a perfect sunset awaiting you each and every night.


The well equipped kitchen offers granite counter tops, dishwasher, microwave/convection over combo, a separate gas oven, 5 burner cook top, disposal, and refrigerator with water purification system and ice dispenser and the best selection of kitchen utensils to prepare a gourmet dinner.

The most beautiful panoramic views await you from inside the unit or outside in the front balcony. Enjoy sitting on the terrace in ultra-comfortable chairs listening to the waves crash onto the beach at night.

About Darin & Carl

Darin introduced me to Puerto Vallarta the first year we met. He was already in love with the city and I immediately feel in love with the people, places, sights and sounds. There is something very special about PV that neither of us has found anywhere else in our travels over the decades. There is a freedom and warmth there that heals the soul from within. You can walk anywhere you need to and there's plenty to do in town and lots more to do one a self-guided excursion. We know you'll love our Mexico home just as much as we do.

Darin & Carl purchased this condo in 2013

Why Darin & Carl chose Puerto Vallarta

We looked for a place to buy there ever since our first trip there together. We came close to buying before but never did find the right fit for us. But then plans for Amapas 353 were announce and we were one of the first couples to buy. Anxiously we waited 13 months for the building to be completed. We partnered with Chawnalee, a designer on the ground in PV, along with her cadre of talented artisans to craft nearly all original, hand-made furniture. The result is a perfect storm of love, passion, appreciation and gratitude.

What makes this condo unique

We installed a custom, heated dipping pool to kick back and relax for a morning soak or to watch the spectacular sunset night after night.

We stayed here and it was a beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last year. It was a beautiful home away from home. It has everything you need and more. It is decorated to fit a king or queen. There is a pool on the balcony and a infiniti pool on the roof. The view is amazing. It is somewhere you will always want to return to. I loved this home. Darin and Carl you have a lovely place and thank you for sharing it.

Unbelievable ocean view and amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Amapas 353 condo for 3 nights before heading to Nuevo Vallarta for another 7, and the time spent at the condo location was the highlight of our vacation. The home is tastefully decorated, and has an amazing ocean view from every room, including both bathrooms. The location was excellent, with TONS of great restaurants and bars located within walking distance. Carl was super easy to deal with, and provided lots of good tips on where to eat and drink locally. We will absolutely be back to Vallarta, and will absolutely be staying at Casa de la Cruz again. Thanks Darin & Carl, we loved your place!

Absolutely spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about my stay at Casa de la Cruz was perfect. The condo was elegant yet comfortable. The view was magnificent. The location of the property was extremely convenient for the beach and on foot for eating and shopping. By far the best vacation spot I've ever experienced. Perfect for two!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for such a glowing review. Yup. We love it there for a whole host of reasons. Amapas 353 is a well-nestled gem close enough to everything especially the beach. How'd you like those waves at night?!

Great location and property

  • 3 of 5

Fantastic location, great property, very nice layout... this is a great place for a couple to spend a vacation in Puerto Vallarta. The unit was clean and maintained with a smooth check in process. Also, communication with the owners was very easy and they were always quick to respond. The unit is just up the hill from the beach with quick access to local shopping and groceries.

The reason for the lower overall score is that the entire time we stayed in the unit there was construction happening at the building directly in front of the unit. They started construction at 8am and were working until approximately 8pm every single day... I would highly recommend checking to see whether the construction is finished before renting this unit. We had to keep all doors and windows closed the entire time of our stay. Knowing this we would not have stayed here - also I recommend reviewing the cancellation policy PRIOR to booking as it is not flexible.

Outside of the construction aspect I would definitely recommend staying at this property.

This is modern elegance and sophisticated style in the heart of the Romantic Zone

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Casa De La Cruz last year and this year. We love staying here as it has the access we want to the center of the city, Los Muertos Beach, and the location is just outside of the heavy hussle of the Romantic Zone, though minutes from everything by foot.

This one bedroom, two bath unit is positioned for full beach views from all rooms, including from the bathrooms. PVRPV greets you on your arrival and gets your stay set for success (not all condos in this building use this service and from our friend's experience, this is well needed for keys and such).

The living room is set up for entertaining as well as simply watching TV (if you would even want to) or reading a good book. The upstairs infinity pool delivers more than a beautiful pool, this view will be your facebook page photo! It is that awesome. Everything is modern, clean and beautiful.

The owners Darin and Carl will take care of even the simplest of things, such as sending you emails of voicemails from your family or friends who leave you messages. We highly recommend this wonderful condo.
