About the property

Ocean view, brand new 1 bedroom, great location.

This is a new apartment inside the recently completed Amapas 353.The unit is sophisticated with a bit of a loft feel and at same time, relaxing with everything you will need from fresh coffee, bottled water, and beach towels to enjoy your stay. The apartment has both a front and rear balcony which provide an incredible cross breeze and always an option of shade or sun. You will be able to sleep quietly with the balcony open and be able to listen to the crashing waves from the rear bedroom. The building itself has only 21 units which give it a boutique feel allowing space to enjoy your privacy. It is located one block above Los Muertos beach and situated conveniently to nightlife, beach clubs, restaurants, and shops in Old Town (Zona Romantica). This is a great location because it provides closeness to the beach without feeling congested and an easy walk to attractions. It is not unusual to spot dolphins or whales January through March from the apartment balcony.

If you are not familiar with Old Town, it has a village feel where you can meet great locals and foreigners who will show you a warm smile, making your stay in Puerto Vallarta a better experience, making you want to come back. Very different from Cancun or the hotel zone.

As of Aug 2016 there is something like 15 new projects in Old Town alone. Most of these are not near this building but there has been on and off renovations at eh Mantamar hotel which is directly across. Noise level can vary from nothing to annoying. However, you will not hear anything with sliding doors closed or at night if there is something they are working on. Vallarta is going through a large growth phase that is affecting noise levels throughout the city.

Why Rob Meehan chose Amapas

We bought this unit in 2012 and loved it so much, we purchased another in the same building that we spend most of the winter in. It's new with a contemporary design and clean lines. The sound of the waves is something that we didn't pay much attention to when purchasing but now realize how relaxing it is to listen to. For such a good size city, there is a definite connection to nature from this apartment.

What makes this condo unique

* Cross breeze in unit due to front/rear terrace

* Roof top pool with expansive view of the bay and city of Vallarta.

* Directly above beach.

* Close walk to town while still providing serenity from club noise.

* Double access to building providing direct walk to beach and walk to town.

* New furniture including king-size, high-end mattress

awesome spot

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from an awesome spot - overlooking the ocean and Los Muertos Beach Easy was the key word! Easy to rent. Easy to get into unit upon check-in. Easy to settle in. Easy to connect with owner. Get ready for a little walk up the hill!

Best Location

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in this building before. The location can not be beat, close enough and yet far enough away. Yes there is construction but that is hard to escape anywhere right now in PV. The unit is very nice, extremely comfortable bed. I wish there was a safe in the suite, its the first unit I have stayed at that does not have a safe!

Also the water and ice on the fridge either did not work or it was not hooked up which was too bad. The self check in process was interesting and I was a bit concerned at first but it went smoothly.

I would stay again.

Great condo with a beautiful view and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We thouroughly enjoyed our stay here. It was a quiet and relaxing stay, we enjoyed the rooftop pool and lounge area on the days when we wanted to stay in and liked that we were a few minutes walk to the more lively beach clubs below. Everyone in the building was very welcoming and the owner was responsive, though we didn't really need anything. Thank you Rob for letting us enjoy your place!

The apartment was a modern 1 bedroom open plan space.

  • 5 of 5

It was clean and well maintained. Rob was extremely helpful and informative. Only caveat, if you are grezers like us, the walk uphill takes some getting used to. The second week is easier. Or, take a cab. The rooftop pool was a beautiful way to spend some time.
