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. Note: the condo is listed for sale. No showing of the property will be scheduled without a prior 24 hour notice to any guest.
Darin & Carl purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Darin & Carl chose Amapas
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.

Beautiful condo, perfect location, amazing rooftop pool, relaxing dipping pool on the balcony.
Really enjoyed our week-long vacation at this very nice condo. Hope to return soon!
So glad you got to enjoy the condo as much as we do!!!
Perfect location and very nicely appointed apartment in the old part of town.
The apartment showed exactly as in pictures. just a 3 minute was to the beach, we couldn’t have asked for a better location.
We were able to walk everywhere!
The apartment has this amazing ocean view and really feels comfortable.
Would stay there again!!
Darin's and Carl's condo is simply stunning. The décor and the amenities are top notch. We really appreciated the washer and dryer which allowed us to pack light. The furniture on the balcony is super comfy, and the walls of windows that slide open wide to make one big indoor/outdoor space are genius.
There was the usual ubiquitous PV construction noise from nearby sites during the day, but the pounding of the surf from the beach below did a nice job of muting it. You can't get away from this construction noise anywhere in PV, but at least here the surf washes it away. The only complaint we had, and it was minor as far as we were concerned, was that the hot water in the shower only lasted about 2 minutes before turning cold even though we had not run hot water elsewhere in the condo prior to showering. We solved that by showering together! ;)
The condo is close to everything we love: Ritmos, Coco's, La Palapa, Panchos, and more. Definitely spend sunsets in the rooftop infinity pool... it's warm, and the views are simply spectacular!
Thanks Craig! Glad you enjoyed yourselves. Can't say enough about being able to sit in the dipping pool and watch the sunsets nightly. So cool to hear the roar of the ocean...amazing how that sound travels up the hill and right into the bedroom. It's like you're on the beach sleeping. We'll be sure to alert property management about the hot water issue. Haven't heard about that before...thanks for letting us know. Safe travels as always and thanks for staying with us!

Great location and comfortable condo in our favorite neighborhood in PV. Any issues or concerns were promptly handled by the management company. We only hope to return again soon. Thanks!
My husband and I stayed at CasadelaCruz from January 3 to 13 and had a terrifc time. The condo is beautifully appointed with lots of space for two people and two great balconies for comfortable lounging. We used the dipping pool almost every day to watch the sunset or to cool off after a day at the beach or walking around town. The rooftop pool was one of the highlights of our stay. Puerto Vallarta is charming and vibrant and the condo is well located to take advantage of all the Old Town as to offer. The condo is located up on a hill which gives lots of opportunities for a good cardio workout after a few margaritas :) There is construction quite close by which we were made aware of before travelling. In fact there seems to be construction in every corner of the town we went to. This is a part of travel to a more urban centre as opposed to a quiet beach resort off the beaten path and did not bother us. Thank you to Carl and Darin, the owners and a big shout out to Angel and the team from Puerto Vallarta Property Mangement for their prompt responsiveness to any concerns we had during our stay. We will miss PV...until next time...Salud!
Lovely unit. The experience was diminished by accommodating realtors to show the unit for sale
We go to PV to relax. The unit provides a gorgeous view with great access to the beach. We enjoy preparing meals ‘at home’ regularly during our stay and lounging about sometimes instead of being in the crowds on the beach. We could not relax completely in the unit because of the showings for sale of the unit. I recognize Xmas-New Years is a popular time and you would have access to a good pool of potential buyers then. I learned you listed the property in the Aug. As we booked the reservation in Feb with the expectation of being undisturbed, we would have appreciated being informed of your need to show the property prior to our arrival so that we could have made a decision about staying. Tidying up and being mindful of our belongings everyday diminished our experience. In all, our stay was fine. The water pressure was strong in the showers. It was helpful to use the washer / dryer once or twice. It was an easy kitchen to use. And, the furniture on the terrace was comfortable.
Thanks for your review and staying with us. We actually didn’t list the property until after early December. The open house was on December 19th. It’s true that the notice for the list in our description was updated online but not until after the listing went live. Our apologies for any inconvenience during your stay. We’re glad you had a good time in PV. Thanks again for staying with us.
