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.

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!

A Time in the Sun

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Bruno for providing a beautiful condo in the heart of Puerto Vallarta. It's exactly as shown in the VRBO pictures. There was great information provided for restaurants and shopping. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Really appreciated the weekly cleaning and was pleased to have free laundry facilities close to the condo.

Our mornings and evenings were spent on the balcony enjoying the Banderas Bay view, the locals, and watching the evening fireworks. Days were spent exploring what PV has to offer. Loved the art galleries, numerous other shops and restaurants all within walking distance. The Saturday market was amazing and certainly worth the walk and the taxi back with all our purchases. Also spent lots of time at the pool and chatting with other condo renters.

Hope we can get back again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review Linda! Your time spent at the condo includes some of my favorite things also. Love having coffee on the balcony and watch the town come alive in the morning and of course the fireworks each night. The same thing for the Saturday market - buying fresh bread and pastries and seeing what the vendors have added to their weekly offerings. Like you, we take the cab back with our goodies and usually head for the pool or beach after lunch.

A Great Second Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed this year again for two months. Bruno's condo is very well appointed and quite comfortable. We ate out most evenings but found that cooking in the condo was very easy with a good supply of pots, pans, dishes, utensils, etc. The staff at the condo is excellent and very friendly. Even though the condo is located on a hill requiring someone to climb about 90 stairs, the taxis are very plentiful and reasonable. We found the other residents to be very hospitable. Thanks, Bruno, for all of your assistance.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

When they say Paradise Found, they are referring to staying in this condo in Puerto Vallarta. We spent two great weeks here and loved the location; the condo was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with pot and pans, cooking utensils, plates and glasses. The only item to be concerned about is the walk from town to the condo, it is not far but steep, so if you have any leg or knee problems you would need to take a cab (which is cheap) or look for a different rental. I found the owner Bruno easy to talk to and he would respond very quickly to my inquiries. Here is the bad part, with this recommendation it may be harder for me to rebook in the future but the condo was great.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jerry; So glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to you returning again. The location is great and as you said so convenient to all that P.V. has to offer. The cabs are so inexpensive that you can use them any time you need to. Most anywhere in town is less than four dollars.

Great time in Puerto Vallarta

  • 5 of 5

We were happy with all that we found in the condo, exactly no surprises. We had an issue with the internet, spoke to the desk about it, and they sent someone to fix the problem. That was easy and a pleasant surprise. We enjoyed Melissa's restaurant just down the hill with great service and lovely food. We will definitely consider this condo on a return trip and will recommend it to our friends.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review James. Melissa's is one of the best kept secrets in P.V. We too enjoy the food and the wonderful owners. Our location allows us to walk to most of the wonderful restaurants that make P. V. a travelers delight.

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.

Owner's Response: Holly - so glad you enjoyed your stay in my condo. The convenience of location and ease of getting around town either by foot, bus or cab is one of the reasons we love our location. Hope to have you back on your next visit to town. Thanks again!

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
