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.

Great with a few ways to improve

  • 4 of 5

We just spent a week and Darin and Carl's place and had a wonderful time. PV is truly fantastic and will be hard to stay away from.

The condo is in a great location and exceeded our expectations in every way. The dipping pool was tremendous and the roof-top pool was as well. I would even suggest that the owners could raise their prices a bit and it would still be well worth it - if anything, the unit is under-priced.

That being said, there were a couple things that keep me from leaving a 5-star review. I'll leave these few comments in case they are helpful to the owners or other potential renters.

1. To no fault of the owners, there is a ton of construction going on in PV and particularly right below the condo. It was extremely noisy from about 8/9 am to about 6:00 pm every day except Sunday. If you are planning on being in the condo during these hours, you need to be aware. You can Google it and find some threads talking about this particular building and the noise levels.

2. No coffee!! Maybe the smallest of oversights, but I cannot in good conscience give a 5-star review to a rental that does not provide coffee. We arrived rather late and the lack of coffee meant that we had to spend some time our first night hunting down a near-by grocery store to be prepared for the morning. Again, not a big deal but to me a 5-star experience provides coffee (or some sort of welcome basket) especially for a week-long stay.

3. Strangers entering your condo. We were informed by the amazing concierge, Martin that a lady would be by on a certain day to clean the condo. We were well-prepared for that. What we were less-prepared for was 3 guys literally banging on the front door just prior to unlocking it and walking right in... while we were inside. Mind you, this is a foreign country to us and the front door does not have a peephole. It was our most disconcerting part of our trip (which says a lot about how wonderful it was overall). In the end, their reason for being there was totally legitimate - they were watering the plants and taking care of the dipping pool. But still, there's really no excuse for not letting guest know that 3 guys will be letting themselves into your condo whether you answer the door when they knock or not.

To summarize, the Romantic Zone is the place to stay and Amapas 353 is a fantastic building. Darin and Carl were very friendly and easy to work with. If the few things I mentioned are not a concern, do not hesitate to book today!

Excellent vacation, perfect condo

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for 10 days at the condo and we were happy we chose this property. Pictures of the property are accurate and the location is perfect. Everything is in walking distance.

The roof top pool is amazing, we spent most afternoons up at the pool. The condo has a fully equipped kitchen with everything you need. The washer and dryer are a big plus for any type of stay. This is a great place for adult stay.

The owners were easy to work with and very responsive, we would definitely stay there again.

Great location and great views

The condo was in a great location, right behind Blue chairs. We enjoyed our week of fun and relaxation. It is a modern building, with a very nice rooftop pool. The balcony was great to sit on in the morning. Overall I highly recommend this place.

Amazing views

This was our 7th trip to PV, and this is one of the loveliest places we have ever stayed in. The views were gorgeous, the bed was comfortable, and the location can't be beat.
