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 location and great views

  • 4 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Enjoyed Paradise.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation. The accommodations were superb. The view from the 7th floor was breathtaking. To be able to go and relax every day after winding down to the top floor with so much privacy was an asset. We were in the center of downtown and had everything at our fingertips .The condo had all the the comforts of home.Everything was available to you.

The only down side to this entire vacation was we had to leave. We pray we get the opportunity to return.

Amazing Condo, Great Owners and Management

  • 5 of 5

Darin and Carl offer an amazing condo in a truly terrific location!! The central AC, new kitchen and beautiful views are a gem. This building is new and perfectly situated between the steep hills of the Romantic Zone and the warms sands of the beach. With access to a great local grocery store, you won't need to leave until it's time to go back to the airport.

Be aware, that the gorgeous beach club below, Mantamar, will sometimes host very loud dance parties. The sound will come into the serene condo at times. So depending on what you're seeking - this maybe be PERFECT for you. And I have a feeling this only happens a few times a year. We were there to ring in the new year - so we got a front row seat.

I'd highly recommend this to anyone wanting to stay near Blue Chairs and the beach. But also have a fairly secluded hideaway - the best of both worlds.

Owner's Response: We're so glad to hear how much you enjoyed your stay. Nice to meet you in person while we were there too. You are right...PV is a big party the week after Christmas and through New Years! But like you said, the building is well positioned for both perfect access to the beach, clubs, yet offering a place to escape. We love listening to the ocean at night so we'd leave the doors open. Thanks again!!

Great accommodations in great location!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at Darin and Carl's condo in the Romantic Zone! It was beautiful and modern. Much to our surprise, there was not one, but two bathrooms. The pool RIGHT ON THE BALCONY was the best. After a day out shopping, we could sit in the pool with a drink and relax before getting ready to go out for dinner. Also, you had two different balconies to chose from - the one off the living room and the one off the master (pool is in between). It was like having several different places to go in one setting. I stayed there with my 11 year old daughter and she loved it too. We had a cute little grocery store just up the block to grab snacks, drinks, fruit, guacamole, etc. When you exit the back of the condo, there are stairs that you can take down to the beach. The condo is a little ways up the hill from the really busy action, so it is the perfect combo of quiet and close to everything. There was a resort under construction in front and to the left of us, but we enjoyed watching the daily progress, and their methods of hauling materials up the side. The view from the balcony is great. You can see the beach and the pier of the Malecon. The property management company (PVRPV) was great and very responsive. They also helped us get a cab to the airport. We would definitely stay here again!! Lisa from Winnipeg

We absolutely loved our time here. The concierge was waiting for us when we arrived. The condo is clean and everything works perfectly. The bed is very comfortable. The views from the balconies are incredibly. the dipping pool is perfect. The owners communicate well and even provided recommendations of local restaurants and activities (I highly recommend dinner at the Swedes).

The pool and grill area on the roof is very nice. We hardly saw anyone else up there. It was never crowded.

The building is perfectly located with quick and easy beach access across the street and close enough the the fun part of town where you can easily walk to dinner, shopping or bars. Yet, not so close to everything to be on loud streets. Evenings on the balcony with a glass of wine were peaceful and relaxing. I can't think of anything we felt was lacking during our trip. Our stay at Casa De La Cruz was pure perfection.
