About Owner- Steven Martin

Born in Canada and live there full time. Business owner since 1995. Love to travel and have been to many places around the world.

Owner- Steven Martin purchased this condo in 2008

Why Owner- Steven Martin chose Puerto Vallarta

I had been looking for a location for eventual retirement somewhere in the US or Mexico. I decided on Puerto Vallarta due to the amazing climate almost year round. Once I set foot into Molino de Agua, I knew this was the place for me.

What makes this condo unique

The fact that the suite is 3,200 square feet all on one floor and the complex is on flat land was a huge benefit for my eventual retirement. I didn't want to be climbing stairs when I get into my 70's and 80's. The fact that we are right in town and can walk to just about everything was great. I didn't want to be stuck in the hillside and feeling trapped. Yes, they have great views up there, but not so easy when you just want to grab a cup of coffee and be social.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Steve,

Just wanted to send you a note to thank you very much for the opportunity to stay at your condo again. We had an awesome time as usual. John really needed this holiday and the relaxation, Hopefully he feels recharged. I was kind of worried about him before the trip, this holiday was what he and I both needed. You have a little piece of heaven there but I'm sure you know that. It was nice to see your other condo as well it is also beautiful you guys did a great job. Thanks again Steve for everything we both really appreciate it, I hope you know that.

Paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

Why would we stay In Steve and Peter's condo in Molino de Agua for the third time? There are numerous reasons, but here are just a few of the ones that were important to us.

Firstly, location. This spacious and modern condo is situated smack in the centre of the Romantic Zone and you only need to step through the secure gate of the fenced property and you’re right on the Malecon (boardwalk). Go right or left for a long leisurely walk in the morning or, if you prefer, an early morning jog. Or maybe just stroll to one of the many cafes for a coffee. If you’re a beach walker, it is directly in front of you. There are many upscale restaurants, markets and galleries. Music and street entertainment is everywhere. As the condo is on the second floor with an unhindered view of the Malecon, the large infinity pool and Banderas Bay, our favourite time of day was early morning with coffee on the large, comfortable balcony. Every morning we would have our coffee there and say our hellos to the staff as they walked by. Staff at Molino seem to clean from daybreak till dusk. Not that the property needed it, but just to keep the impeccable standard of cleanliness that was so noticeable on our first stay. All the staff seem to honestly care about maintaining that standard.

Our second reason for returning to Steve and Peter’s condo is that the residence was totally worry free. In terms of amenities, you want for nothing. Phone, laundry, cable tv’s, computer, Wi-Fi, quality appliances, you name it. This condo reflects the “spare no expense’” attitude of the owners. As we have toured around Puerto Vallarta quite a bit and have been able to compare this property to others, we truly believe that there is no equal. Molino de Agua and this condo are number one on our list.

Finally, and most importantly, my wife has said that Puerto Vallarta, this property and especially this condo is the place she would be happy to return to, year after year. I second her opinion because I feel the same way. We’re not not rich people, by any standard, but for value, quality and location you could not make a better choice than this property and especially this condo. Thank you Steve and Peter. If your intention was to establish an atmosphere of the “Life Styles of the Rich and Famous, you have exceeded it. We will return.

Immaculate condo

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay and the room is everything you could possibly want and then some. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the people that work there are fabulous! They were able to help us maneuver around the city and even recommend a few wonderful restaurants within walking distance. The pool...well...it is AMAZING. We are very active and were delighted to have this pool to swim in when we were there (if it's not 50M it's close to it!). All the people we met and talked to were wonderful. We did opt to buy groceries and if you are up for the challenge can walk to La Ley just past the boardwalk (we took backpacks). Oh...and did i mention you get fireworks off the balcony EVERY NIGHT!?!? (about 9:20pm :) ) Thank you both for allowing us to stay in your condo...it was definitely a memorable week!

Three Times And Counting...

  • 5 of 5

Dear Steve,

Just returned home from our third visit to PV and your beautiful condo. We honestly can't say enough! We walked through the door, unpacked our bags and literally felt like we were home again. We spent 14 fantastic days in the lap of luxury.

I miss sitting on the beautiful spacious balcony every morning listening to the sounds of the ocean and birds while staring out at the amazing garden and ocean views. I miss laying by the magnificent pool soaking up the sun. I miss walking out of the gates of the property and exploring all the amazing shops and restaurants. It was an adventure everyday. I miss the AMAZING staff at Molino and the people of PV. We have fallen in love with it all!

There were six of us who rented the condo with no issues whatsoever. This condo is very large, large enough to escape for some alone time or spend time with all of us together. We made a Costco run at the beginning of our trip and shopped and ate locally after that. Everything else we needed was in the condo. It is very well equipped. You have spoiled us Steve! I don't think we can stay anywhere else again...

Thank you so much! If you will have us, we will be back! If anyone is hesitant about renting this fantastic condo, don't be, you will not be sorry!

Perfect condo in PV

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled to spend 7 weeks in this condo recently. Molino de Agua is the perfect location in Puerto Vallarta - oceanfront but right in the heart of old town and within walking distances of restaurants, theatres, bars and shops - no need for buses and taxis.

The unit itself is beautiful. Gorgeously decorated and well equipped and well stocked with all bathroom and kitchen essentials. Photos don't do it justice. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay.

Steve and Peter, the owners, are terrific guys and a real pleasure to deal with - they couldn't do enough for us and they have an excellent management team in Carlos and his associates who were constantly checking to ensure that everything in the condo was in order.

We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this condo to prospective renters.

Owner's Response: Dear Hillary, Thank you so much for the wonderful review. Our staff miss all of you already! We all look forward to your return. I am so glad that we were able to make your stay as comfortable as possible since as you told me, staying in other suites in Molino in the past wasn't as comfortable and pleasing as it was staying in our suite. Sincerely, Steve

Los Muertos Beach (complex fronts on beach)
Car: not necessary

This amazing complex sits on Los Muertos beach in Old Town Puerto Vallarta in the area of Romantic Zone. It is so close to shopping, restaurants and nightlife activities that you will never need a car. The 'Malecon' boardwalk is directly in front of the complex and is great for leisurely walks or really good power walking first thing in the morning. Even though our kitchen is completely equipped, don't forget to try out the abundance of incredible restaurants with world renowned chefs. The cuisine in Puerto Vallarta is very international, so you can get a lot more than just burritos! The residents and staff of our complex are very friendly, so if you need help in finding something, just ask.
