Centro Condo Rental Photos and Description

Large one-bedroom, open walls, central location

Peace and quiet in a lush tropical setting in the foothills of Puerto Vallarta! Welcome to my home away from home located downtown within walking distance to all that PV has to offer. With gated entrance and 24 hr. security the condo also provides a full staff for your convenience. This condo is authentically decorated in the Mexican style. With terracotta floors, tiled kitchen counters and newly remodeled tiled bath you will be transported to the vacation of your dreams. The open walls along the rear of the unit, leading to the planted balcony off living room and patio for alfresco dining off the bedroom, allow for tropical breezes both day night rarely needing to use the air condition or remote controlled ceiling fans. The patio is a great place for coffee or cocktails and overlooks downtown and Banderas bay beyond .

Each condo is privately entered from the outside by covered walkways lined with tropical plants leading directly to the unit. The kitchen with new gas stove is completely equipped with everything needed to make your stay a memorable one; seperate filtered water faucet, microwave, toaster, toaster oven, blender, barware, dishes, flatwear, pots, pans - its all here! Whether sitting at the kitchen counter or opening the pull-down 'Murphy' dining set, or out on the patio -- this kitchen can accomodate your whims.

If you prefer to dine out -- the choices are endless! Within walking distance are countless restaurants offering a variety of menus and atmosphere. From small little family run places tucked away on a little street to the most elegant 5 star restaurant with increible sunset views! You will never tire of discovering your next favorite place to dine.

The beach and the Malecon (boardwalk) are a short walk from the condo. In between, there are many shops and lots of art galleries (don't miss the 'art-walk' - Wednesday nights when the galleries stay open late and feature local artists and offer wine and cheese. Centrally located, you can walk from the condo to most anywhere in town. Great exercise walking down the steps from the condo which puts you right in the heart of town and within walking distance to various beaches, shops etc. At the end of the day should you decide you have burned enough calories for the day, taxi's are readily available to get you back up to the condo. You can go almost anywhere in town for $4.00, tops! The local bus costs 60 cents! Great for bringing groceries back from the market!

On the days you want to relax at home, you can sit by the beautiful pool in the lushly landscaped gardens. To help plan your days, the front desk offers concierge service -- anything you might need from getting directions or locating a restaurant , tickets or taxi - they will be glad to help. The increible staff is always happy to answer any question you may have and all speak both English and Spanish.

Keywords: Condo, Open walls with city and ocean views, each unit accessed from outdoors.

About Bruno

Love to travel and have done so extensively for the past 30 years. Returning often to Italy and Mexico - two of my favorite spots.

Bruno purchased this condo in 2011

Why Bruno chose Puerto Vallarta

After returning every year and renting for the past 18, we finally bought a place with the best location of all that Puerto Vallarta has to offer and the best run association and staff we've found.

What makes this condo unique

The natural beauty, location and the incredible people of Mexico make me want to return time and again! The location is authentic Mexican while offering all the conveniences you would want . Cobble stone streets with smiling locals and excellent weather, sophisticated dining and a wonderful expat. community that makes Puerto Vallarta special!

Wow Wow Wow!

  • 5 of 5

I live 2 hours south of PV and come into town a couple of times a month for business, doctors, etc. I decided to spend a week in July. I came across this condo for rent in a complex I had never visited-wow! What a great location, quiet, but a short walk to my favorite part of the MALECON and an easy bus ride to all of my other errands. Stunning pool & gardens surround this tranquil home away from home, truly an oasis in a bustling city. The kitchen is super well equipped, the king bed where I woke up with no backache for s change and a great terrace for dining. Bruno could not have been more helpful and the staff at Puesta Del Sol more friendly and accommodating. I don't need to look anywhere else for my PV respites. The only challenge will be getting a reservation since this place is so popular.

Outstanding Owner and Property

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been going to Puerto Vallarta for about 20 years. During the past six years, we have stayed in various condos in or near Old Town. We found Bruno to be extremely responsive and helpful with respect to Vallarta and the Puesta del Sol condo. The condo is in a complex of about 80 units. Even though we did not use the pool, it looked great and was a popular spot for residents. The entry is gated, and the staff were extremely efficient and pleasant. Bruno's condo was the most completely furnished and comfortable place for any of our visits. In fact, we have booked again for two months in 2017. The kitchen was nicely furnished with all necessary utensils. The wifi in the unit was always reliable. We very much enjoyed the quiet of the unit even though we were only up the stairs from two well known restaurants (Si Señor and Cafe des Artistes). We managed the stairs going toward the Malecon and always looked forward to greeting Lola, the parrot outside Si Señor. Gracias, Bruno.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Jim for your review. Always glad to hear from happy clients who appreciate the effort we put into keeping our condo the way you described. Like you we had rented for years before buying and we knew exactly what we would want in a rental. Looking forward to your return next year! Bruno

That's all we needed.

  • 5 of 5

It is such a cozy home that Burno offered us. My husband and I always love traditional Mexican style. We have been spending time in beach resorts, different apartment in the old town lately. This beautiful one bedroom apartment fit our needs the best. Traditional Mexican decoration, comfortable furniture, excellent location, most importantly, very clean. The whole condo is well maintained, the grounds make you feel you are living in a beautiful garden. There is a common pool. The staff are all professional, friendly and accommodating. We really enjoyed our stay and will come back for sure.

A Month of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a month at this property. It was everything as described. The condo was just as the pictures show. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We spent many hours sitting around the pool and visiting with other vacationers. We loved our time there. It is so easy to get to anywhere you may want to go. Bruno was marvellous to deal with and very good at responding to emails. Thank you Bruno.

An Excellent Home Base in Puerto Vallarta

  • 5 of 5

I want to make this succinct so I won't tell you everything I liked about my 3 months staying at Bruno's condo...instead, I'll tell you everything I LOVED about my stay!

BRUNO: an amazingly responsive host! We communicated lots beforehand; he responded quickly and sent me additional info until I felt very comfortable making my decision to stay there. He was so kind as to leave a bottle of wine for my arrival! And when my flight home was cancelled, he provided extraordinary assistance.

BRUNO'S CONDO: spacious for one or 2, comfortable, nicely decorated with authentic Mexican touches. The bed is excellent and the kitchen is well equipped. Never needed the bedroom's air conditioning; while the condo is bright and light-filled, the sun didn't shine directly in. That and an amazing breeze and ceiling fans in every room (even the bathroom and on the balcony!) kept the condo very comfortable. And there's that view of the sea from the balcony!

PUESTA DEL SOL DEVELOPMENT: Save on the cost of car rental, here you're close to everything and won't need a car. Top-notch restaurants are a short walk away. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, a rare green oasis in the city. Office and maintenance staff are helpful and accommodating, whether you need directions to the supermercado or the phone number of a manicurist who makes house calls. It's well located in the quieter downtown area but close enough to walk to Old Town, the sea and tourist spots--or take the inexpensive local bus. Pool and pool deck are inviting and refreshing and a hub for meeting other residents. Surrounded by walls with a staffed office and security monitoring, as a woman there alone I felt very safe (not that I have ever felt unsafe in 5 previous visits to Vallarta). If you are physically challenged the steps up from the street may give you pause. But I'm 63 with a bad hip and I sometimes did the steps 3 times in a day. It's easy and inexpensive to bypass the steps as taxis (about $3 US from elsewhere in Centro or from Old Town) are readily available.

I could say lots more but you get the idea. I heartily recommend Bruno's condo to you!

Owner's Response: Thank you Ruth -- I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and that you enjoyed all the things that I too love about Puerto Vallarta and specifically, Puesta del Sol and my condo. It was a pleasure having you as a tenant and I want to thank you for all the great feedback you provided during your three month stay! Your notes on what you enjoyed and sharing your restaurant finds and also the nearby towns you discovered will help future renters enjoy all that Puerto Vallarta has to offer. You have me anxious to return very soon and try some of your suggestions. I also want to thank you for being so helpful in allowing potential guests tour my property on short notice. They were really pressed for time since they were leaving P.V. and wanted to make sure that I let you know how much it was appreciated. Thanks again Ruth, I look forward to you returning to my condo In the near future.

A Mexican Immersion!

  • 5 of 5

I came to Puerto Vallarta by myself to study spanish for a week in heat of August. This condo was absolutely perfect for my stay. The central location was great as I could walk to the school and everything else for that matter. The description and pictures of the condo and the complex are right on. It is nestled on a hillside and I felt like I was living with the locals. I felt very safe and the employees were so helpful (thanks Emilia!!) I never had a bad meal eating at Melissa's, Pipi's, La Posta, Cafe Del Artistes, Dolce Vita, Viejo Vallarta and Arrayan. The owner took alot of time to give me an overview of the area with tips and suggestions for a first time Vallarta visitor. Loved it!

Owner's Response: Cheryl, I am so glad you enjoyed staying at the condo. I too love the fact that there are so many really good restaurants in the area. We have eaten in all of the ones you mentioned and I agree that they all are good and have their own atmosphere to boot. Thanks again, and hope you get to return again.
