About Allan & Ted

Ted and Allan live in beautiful British Columbia and have been vacationing in PV each year for more than 30 years. Our dream to own in Mexico finally happened when we came across this new condo building in the heart of Old Town.

Allan & Ted purchased this condo in 2013

Why Allan & Ted chose Emiliano Zapata

This property is in an amazing location - it the heart of Old Town with its restaurants, clubs, art galleries; close to the beautiful beaches of PV; and everything PV has to offer.

The building amenities are great - especially the spectacular views from the roof-top terrace with its pool, hot tubs, BBQ area, lounging and dining areas and WIFI.

The unit is about 1500 sf, open and airy, 2 large balconies, and well appointed for comfort and entertainment.

The building owners and guests give this a real community feel.

We love it here and want to share it with the world.

What makes this condo unique

Serenity! It is always amazing to us that we can walk out the front door of the building and be in the heart of a very vibrant city and then walk back in to the peace and serenity of this building.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just returned from our first week's vacation of the year from the beautiful Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. We stayed in Casa Alterra V399...which was home from home but with the sunshine. The apartment is modern, immaculate and has all the home comforts you don't normally get whilst on holiday. Although I had no desire to cook, I would have been able to rustle up almost anything with all the cookware and appliances, it is short of nothing. The balcony off the living area proved to be a lovely area to enjoy our light lunch and our pre dinner drinks. We found the balcony off the master suite was ideal for sunbathing in the afternoon. The staff who manage this complex are extremely helpful with anything you may need and always with a smile. The owners, Allan and Ted are extremely caring and will do anything to make your visit the very best possible. The sunsets from the rooftop terrace are beautiful and if you haven't made friends round the pool during the day you most definitely will when the sun sets. The pool on the roof is something else...the view is out of this world! This 2 bedroomed suite is perfectly located at one end of the Melecon making it perfect to explore PV. This is our second time in PV and we love everything about it, staying in this luxury apartment doesn't get any better.

Wouldn't stay anywhere else!

  • 5 of 5

Hands-down, this was the nicest place we have ever rented. Even though the condo is only a block or so off the very busy streets, it is amazingly quiet - even when sitting out on one of the two terrific balconies. The condo is beautifully appointed, but unpretentious. The furnishings are current, smart, and comfortable. The art work is lovely. Still, the overall feel is one of welcome, home-like, and roomy. The kitchen was particularly well equipped/stocked with everyday essentials. It was so easy to settle in.

The owners took a personal interest in our comfort and overall experience. They initiated the connection with the concierge, who arranged our roundtrip transportation for the airport. They checked in with us via email part way through the stay to be sure everything was in in order and that we were enjoying ourselves.

If I was going back to PV, and Casa Alterra was not available, I think I would try changing my dates before I would look for something else!

Place in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect! It is close to dining, shopping, and the beach. You can walk to most places. The unit we stayed in has all the amenities of home. It's well appointed and very comfortable. A great place to come home to after a hard day of relaxing and having fun.

A beautiful condo in a very nice building

  • 5 of 5

The condo is lovely and clean and comes equipped with all of the creature comforts one could ask for . If you are inclined to cook the kitchen is very nicely equipped. The bedrooms are very spacious with plenty of storage, a comfortable beds, and spacious bathrooms. We especially enjoyed the two balconies. The location of the condo is perfect - close to the beach and within walking distance to great restaurants, coffee shops, French bakery, etc. The Wi-Fi worked very well. The roof top pool area is stunning with an abundance of places to relax. Allan and Ted are so nice to work with, they made the booking process easy and quickly responded to any questions that we had. Allan and Ted also provided a book that explained how everything worked in the condo and the building and served a mini guide book for Puerto Vallarta. The building in which the condo is located is secure and well maintained. David met us when we arrived was very professional and provided an outstanding orientation to the condo and the building. Mary did a very nice job cleaning the condo.

Owner's Response: We are again pleased that you and others have found our home a place to enjoy family, friends and a sense of paradise in Vallarta. We also enjoy the variety and local flavour of places to eat. There is also a growing and very thriving theatre community which showcases both local and international artists. We hope any people enjoying our home will also add the theatre in with the beach, whale watching and eco tours. Thank you, Ted and Allan

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week and couldn't have been happier. The building is on a quiet street in the middle of town giving us the best of both worlds.

When we arrived we were greeted by the building concierge who walked us through the apartment. It was just like the pictures show and then some. We are both cooks so the gourmet kitchen was a huge plus and had everything we needed.

The master bedroom was fantastic. The king bed is very comfortable and was great to wake up and go out to the private balcony and enjoy a coffee.

The roof is absolutely stunning. There is a large infinity pool and two hot tubs that we had practically all to ourselves. The view is stunning as you can see the bay, the town and the mountains. We watched some spectacular sunsets.

We are already planning our next trip back!

Wonderful experience...well taken care of.

  • 5 of 5

Have no doubts that you will be well taken care of while staying at Casa Alterra. Both Allan & Ted are fantastic hosts. Allan kept in contact making sure that we were taken care of from beginning to end. We were personally met by his Operations Director at Palmera. Both patient and kind Mr. Sanchez took us on a quick tour and explained how everything worked. Have a couple nice bottles of water and some snacks was a nice touch. We also appreciated the lovely bottle of wine given by our hosts as we were celebrating our anniversary. Thanks again, so very kind of you.

About the condo itself, what's not to like. Comfortable and tastefully decorated, 2 balconies. One off the master bedroom I used in the morning to sit and read. The other off the living room we sat and ate meals..very romantic at night with candles, provided by your hosts. The kitchen is very efficient, if you like to cook like I do. You'll find no problem cooking the most grand or simplest meals in no time. Excellent brand new cook wear, dishes and many other accessories provided...a chefs dream. Bathrooms were big and spacious, shower big enough for two. If you have children travelling with you, you'll find having an extra half bath a godsend as no waiting to use the bathroom like an ordinary hotel room. This is sooooo much better and at the same price or less depending on the season. Everything was kept clean by the lovely housekeeper Mary. She was very patient in helping me with my Español. Please tip her generously, she does such a good job. She even gave the dishwasher a good scrubbing out, she's that through. Her towel art and flowers were such a nice surprise.

Another bonus to this condo is the roof top facilities. Two jacuzzis, small plunge pool that's partially covered from the sun. Very important when your fair like me. Washroom facilities, so no running back to the condo. A bbq, don't forget to book it with Katerina down in the management office. For a bonus...a fireplace. A great backdrop to the nightly fireworks from the pirate ship out on the bay. Fireworks start between 9-9:30pm if I remember. Bring up a bottle of wine and makes some new friends. We met a lot of terrific neighbours, folks in this building are very friendly.

Lastly, the location . A 10 min walk to the beach, 7 min to Olas Atlas. Several restaurants and a Banamex bank with good exchange rates, turn left on Olas Atlas. For good shopping try the Emiliano Zapata Mercado lots to see. Enjoy your trip!

Owner's Response: Much like our e-conversations confirm, Kathy is a wonderful person and was an excellent guest as also confirmed by some owners that met them. We attempt to have every possible issue addressed before the question hits. We love our home and enjoy hearing that others have a good time in our suite and in the best part of downtown Vallarta. We have enjoyed visiting Vallarta over the last thirty (30) years usually with friends and/or family and quite often for a special occasion. We therefore understand and appreciate the 'it was very special' statements from our guests. Cheers, Allan and Ted

In season whale watching is incredible. The females are either ready for 'action' or in the process of calving. Eco tours, botanical gardens and jungle zip-lining available nearby.

Live entertainment, bars and other fun activities are just near by and you can safely walk to your quiet escape from it all.
