Romantic Zone Condo Rental Photos and Description

Sun and Sea House is a stylish, new 2 Bed/2 Bath condo w/ocean-view terrace

Enjoy "Beach" Without "Boring"

Casa Sol y Mar (Sun and Sea House) at The Park is a 2-bed, 2-bath, 2-terrace ocean-view condo just one block from the beach in the most convenient section of the never-boring Old Town (Romantic Zone / Zona Romantica). No hills to climb!

Our end-unit condo features an owner-designed floorplan providing two master suites, if desired, windows in every room (including the bathrooms), a step-out balcony in the main master with views of the cathedral, an enlarged kitchen/family room area, and a double-size terrace off the living area.

Attention To Detail

Professionally decorated and featuring resort-quality linens, Casa Sol y Mar strives to provide guests the amenities they expect while on vacation, including beach towels, pool tools and our own pool cart for transporting everything you'll need for a rejuvenating day enjoying Old Town's largest rooftop pool. Our condo also provides three-step water filtration at the sink and refrigerator.

We also have a full-size, in-unit washer and dryer, 50-inch flat-screen TV with HDMI ports, in-unit WiFi, stainless steel appliances and granite/marble countertops with an island that seats 5. The family room includes a couch with pull-out twin-sized trundle bed for a 5th guest.

Gearing Up For The Sky Park

Guests can load up the pool cart with towels, drinks and snacks and head up one of our building's two elevators to The Sky Park. You won't be crowded on Old Town's most spacious rooftop terrace. Here you can enjoy the area's largest rooftop pool - a glorious semi-Olympic, heated, saltwater escape from stress. The Sky Park also features an outdoor grill and food prep area, dining tables, wet bar, bathrooms and outdoor showers.

There are covered lounging areas with a flat-screen television, couches and plenty of comfortable poolside loungers. The views of the Banderas Bay, Old Town and the surrounding mountains never get old.

New Building, With Old Town Charm

Completed in November 2014, The Park isn't a high rise. Rather it is in keeping with the architectural details of Old Town, including red-tiled roofs, white exterior and wrought iron railings. It nestles perfectly within the Romantic Zone's cobblestone streets and is adjacent to the the beach, the park, and the area's vibrant nightlife, entertainment, bars, restaurants and clubs.

Local charm doesn't need to give way to inconvenience, however, as the building features a gym with weights, cardio, televisions and bathrooms, a front desk concierge, garage parking, and 24-hour security, as well as free WiFi in the lobby and on the pool deck.

Unlike many accommodations in Old Town, this building is ideally located in the flattest area making the one-block walk to the beach an easy stroll. You can pick up a coffee on your way at Pages In The Sun.

Never-Boring Romantic Zone

Guests can also gain easy, inexpensive transportation to all of Vallarta's regional attractions by taking advantage of our convenient location on the bus route.

You can watch cultural events and Zumba classes in Lazaro Cardenas Park from our terrace, as well as the Saturday Farmers' Market (seasonal).

You can easily step out our door and go for morning walks or runs on the Malecon (seawall/boardwalk), which offers many galleries, shops, restaurants and historic reference points, monuments and statues.

We are also just a block from some of the hottest dance clubs, as well as the many restaurants and lounges on Basillo Badillo and Olas Altas (streets).

Some favorite nearby restaurants and bars include The Blue Shrimp, Daiquiri Dick's, Joe Jack's Fish Shack, The Palm, Si Senor, La Palapa, and many local dance clubs.

Be Our Guests

We can also arrange concierge services such as airport transfer, excursions, in-house chef, Spanish lessons, spa services, and extra cleanings for additional fees.

Feel free to inquire directly about dates, rates and features. We look forward to hosting you and yours at Casa Sol y Mar at The Park!

About Stacey Hartmann

From the Rockies to the Sierra Madre Mountains -

We live outside Boulder, Colorado, with our two daughters and dog, Charlie. We first visited Vallarta for our children's Spring Break in 2013, and were hooked on the area's feel and amenities.

At First, We Meet -

We rented a place in Old Town for the week and loved the cultural vibe and convenience of this authentic Mexican Pueblo on the Pacific, where there is a real sense of community. We decided to purchase our condo because we wanted to make the most of our time on this earth.

Future Escapes -

We also decided perhaps we could make some great family memories returning to Vallarta frequently while our girls are still home, and then after they leave, we will enjoy the area more and more until retirement, when we'll come for months at a time.

We feel very lucky when we can get well-priced 3-hour direct flights from Denver, and so far, have managed to pull that off most of the time with good planning.

Stacey Hartmann purchased this condo in 2014

Why Stacey Hartmann chose Puerto Vallarta

Casa Sol y Mar at The Park is a new 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom luxury vacation rental in Old Town (Zona Romantica), Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Just one block from the beach with no hills to climb, this modern condo features a bounty of light, an extra large terrace, 2 master suites with king and king/double twin convertible beds, a fully equipped kitchen and resort linens. We love being just 10-15 minutes from the airport and then once we check in, being able to walk to so many restaurants and shops, or simply hop on the bus (we are on the bus route) or take a cab.

What makes this condo unique

It All Came Together For Us Here - Casa Sol y Mar at The Park is 'Mexico beach' without 'boring.' Old Town or the Romantic Zone is a unique blend of old Mexican Pueblo, mountains, city vibe and ocean/beach experience.

Location, Location, Location -

We love the convenience of walking everywhere and having such a variety of restaurants, shops, galleries, activities and culture just footsteps away on the Malecon (boardwalk). We want to travel many places, but Puerto Vallarta is a second home where we will return many, many times. It is that wonderful!

Beautiful condo, right in the heart of it all!

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed with this condo and the entire facility. We loved the roof top pool and terrace and found ourselves there at the end of every day. Extremely well maintained with restrooms, showers, outdoor TV's, bar facility with ice machine and cold drink fridge. A wonderful place to start and end the day.

The condo is well equipped with everything you will need for a pleasant stay. It is extremely clean and well maintained and we appreciated the extra care with the purified water at the tap. We loved the beautiful walk in showers, the effecient washer and dryer, the outdoor deck with sliding doors that opened as wide as the living room! The air conditioners were most effecient, cooling rapidly when we came back from a hot afternoon of walking.

The only downside is the night time noise from the bars and also the busses.

Perfect Place in PV

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this area of PV many times in the past but wanted to try a new place on this trip.

I found Casa Sol Y Mar on HomeAway and so glad that I did.

The owners were amazing from the moment I reached out. Provided info, answered questions and helped ensure all was set up for us to have an amazing stay upon arrival.

This is a beautiful and modern spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo in a beautiful secure building with possibly the best rooftop pool in old town.

This is an end unit with a large patio balcony that is perfect for outdoor reading and relaxation or dining.

Location is perfect! You are in the heart of it all. Right on the square; walk to the beach, to restaurants, to night life; everything you could desire. No car is needed when staying here.

The managers of the unit are available to you at any time should you need them during your stay; we felt comfortable to reach out at any time and they were helpful when we once got locked out of the in-room safe due to a malfunction, and came right over to help get it opened for us.

We loved this building and felt right at home in the unit overall. It's beautifully decorated with top of the line amenities and touches. I can not say enough great things about Casa Sol Y Mar.

We are very thankful for the opportunity to rent this amazing place and plan to return again as soon as we are able to do so.

Hi Stacy, I apologize for not getting back sooner. Concerning your home that you allowed us to use in January. The apartment was fabulous and the location could not have been any better, Joe Jacks 1st nite, Blue Shrimps, Cafe De Olla. Every thing right there, ocean was 77 steps as one other of your guests had mentioned and to get into the ocean water you have to cross the Malecon. What a great experience the Malecon is. I love the statue of the Flamingo Dancers. Again, your apartment was excellent, all of the convinces of our home but Badillo Street was so inviting we didn't actually use the kitchen for any supper meals. Perfect for 2 couples. Thank you so much for making your unit available. Marshall

Beautiful modern 2 bedroom 2 bathroom in wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and a friend spent 2 weeks in this beautiful condo from January 11-25, 2016. It is as nice as it looks!

We spent a lot of our time out on the large corner balcony, where we could see right around from Our Lady of Guadalupe to the Ocean. The patio doors side into each other to open the whole balcony up, no screens, but no bugs either. ` My husband was very impressed at how smoothly all the windows and doors work! We ate breakfast at home every morning, several lunches and a few dinners. We made crepes on one of the Sundays, and had our friends over, and another time we made a fresh taco bar. There is such a wonderful abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables from the market just a few blocks up (you pick up a plastic wash basin they have, fill it with all kinds of fresh produce , take it to the young lady at the door, she counts it up, then you pay the man cashier inside). The cauliflower and carrots are the best I have ever had. We found there were 2 places down Basilio Badillo where people bring fresh raspberries, etc and sell them there. They were wonderful also, especially the raspberries, I think they were 60p for a quart container. I taught my friend the trick with berries is to wash them in vinegar water and they firm up and last so much better...try it, you'll be glad you did. For the taco night we made our own guacamole and salsa and bought fresh tacos from one of the 3 taco factories we have found in that area. They we went to the Colin Meat Market and bought the roast pork pieces they have there and made pulled pork out of it. Was so tasty and everyone loved them. Talking of food, our favorite restaurant is Cafe de Olla, on Basilio Badillo, Next to it is the pastor....or a name similar to it, where they shave off the big joints of pork, and flip on a chunk of the grilled pineapple off the spit...don't miss that either. We also went to a street taco cart, up 'our' road, in front of the big Pharmacy . The only place we had bad food was at the Burro Bar just down on the Malecon. It was awful, ended up the bathroom a LOT after that !

Stacey could not have been more accommodating, right from our first inquiry in the fall. I highly recommend this place, the only drawback is the 3 nightclubs across the street that go on till at least 5am...It is good if you are a night owl! They do provide ear plugs and white noise machine. The whole building was very clean and well maintained and all the staff were great!

Fantastic !

  • 5 of 5

I once heard someone say "if you want to have all the comforts of home, stay home" ... instead, I say today, head to beautiful Puerto Vallarta and stay at this beautiful spot ... there's simply everything you could want or need in this very well appointed suite with an exceptionally well equipped kitchen. If that isn't enough, there's the views from every room, the gracious sized balcony (did I mention views ???), not to mention the fantastic sky terrace on the roof. Wow wow wow.

Of course there's also the endless throb of a very lively and lovely resort town with lots of dining, nightlife and plenty of sea for beaching or boating. With lots of bar, cabaret and theatre type entertainment it's a town on the go. The restaurant recommendations the hosts included were well appreciated. In fact, we ate at one of them 3 times !!! ... how do you spell Joe ??? try the shrimp and snapper combo !!! ... You can also cook your own or go for take-away. It's all within steps of this home away ... Enjoy !
