About Ted Mason

Ted and Bruce have had a longtime love affair with Mexico going back 30 years when they had their first holiday together travelling around the country. Ted's training as an architect haslead to a real passion for the historic architecture of Mexico, especially the builidngs of the 17th and 18th century. Bruce's passion is cooking and there is a rich tradtion of regional cooking in Mexico which he has been exploring for years. Ted learnt spanish in university which allowed them access to many aspects of the country which the average tourist might miss.They are both Canadians from small towns in Canada and appreciate the value of being part of a community. They have found the town of Puerto Vallarta to be especially welcoming and are making friends among both Mexicans and the large ex pat community. Their goal is to retire in Mexico.

Ted Mason purchased this condo in 2012

Why Ted Mason chose Puerto Vallarta

We fell in love with this property after a friend of ours bought in the building in 2009. Our friiend had lived in San Miguel Allende for years and had built a luxurious bed and breakfast which he operated with his partner. Health problems forced our friend into a more relaxed lifestyle in Puerto Vallarta where he discovered a very welcoming community that had most of the modern conveniences of home along with the interesting contrast of cultures that one finds throughout Mexico. The convenient airline connections to Canada, the top notch health services and the close proximity to the dynamic city of Guadalajara made Puerto Vallarta an excellent mix of amenities and culture. We discovered this for ourselves and decided that our reitrement would be spent here.

What makes this condo unique

When we first bought in Mexico we did have friends who doubted the wisdom of this choice. We were told that perhaps Palm Springs of Hawaii would be a safer investment. However we felt that we would be bored living in places that were essentially american suburbia. Our experiences living and travelling in Mexico gave us the knowledge that the country was not dangerous as it is protrayed in the Canadian and American media. We wanted to be able to walk to the local market and buy fruits and vegetable that we had never tried before and test new recipies for traditional Mexican dishes that are disappearing even among the locals as the country is more and more influenced by it's northern neighbours. Our condo is unique in that it offers to us both the traditional and the modern. Within the grounds we have all the amenties of home such as drinkable tap water, and amazing swimming pool, cool ocean breezes and a secure home that is hidden away from the sometimes hectic street life of the town. We can also step out the door and be into a dynamic and culturally interesting place that is a crossroads for people from all over the world. For us our Puerto Vallarta home offers the best of both worlds.

BRAVO!

  • 5 of 5

Molino de Agua was absolutely beautiful! We loved every minute of it. The staff was very nice and took care of anything we needed. The home was decorated very tastefully. We had everything we needed to cook with. I can honestly say we will be returning.

Amazing, fully equipped condo!

  • 5 of 5

This is my 6th trip to Puerto Vallarta and the second time I've stayed at Molino de Aqua. Ted's condo is a beautifully furnished and equipped condo. The pictures on the website represent the it well. Being an end unit, there is a large window in every bedroom and the balcony is also more open than other units. There are king sized beds in every bedroom which you also can't always find in other condos. The unit was very clean and the maid came twice during the week to clean, change sheets and towels. We will never stay anywhere else in PV except at Molino de Aqua and I would definitely come back to Ted's condo!

A blissful eight night stay at this condo

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this condo in the Molino de Agua complex. This condo is at the east end of the complex, and has great views of both the bay and an eastern view. It is also very quiet and relaxing. The condo is large and has all of the required luxuries , including 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, with TV's and DVD players in each room. The place was very comfortable and relaxing. Plus, our property manager was very helpful with our requests and the owner, Ted, was very accommodating when answering questions and making the reservations. We would definitely consider returning to this condo for our third stay for our next visit to Puerto Vallarta!

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this condo for two weeks in March and found it to be everything and more! We were greeted by the property manager upon arrival and found the condo clean and having everything we needed for a great stay. The maid service was excellent not to forget the amazing service and assistance from the security guards around the complex who were always willing to help. This condo had everything you could need and so much more. We would without hesitation recommend this condo to anyone and would definitely return.

Immaculate Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful condo for 8 glorious days. It was fully equipped with everything imaginable from for the kitchen to lots of towels and even supplied robes... nice touch. This is our second visit to the Molino and hopefully will not be our last. Ted was great to deal with and answered all of my questions and even suggested a few restaurants which we tried during our stay. You can't go wrong with this property everything is just right at your finger tips outside the gates.

Located in the old town the condo is ideally located for walking tours of the surrounding area which will give one sense of the original architecture of this town before it was a tourist destination and a glimpse into everyday life of the iocal inhabitants. The surrounding neighbourhood is a genuine mexican town and not an artificial tourist resort. It contains an amazing array of shope and restaurants that cater to all tastes and budgets.
