Puerto Vallarta Condo Rental Photos and Description

One of Zona Romantica's newest building (2012) steps to everything in old town!

TREAT YOURSELF TO A FABULOUS STAY IN PUERTO VALLARTA! A 5+ star accommodation........from as little as $175/night, depending on the season.

'Vallarta Vida', is Romatic Zona's newest loft style 1700 sq. ft. 2 bedroom Penthouse condo in the heart of Old Town Vallarta. Located on a quiet street just a leisurely stroll away from the very best restaurants, bars, boutiques & other shopping to suit every taste, palette and budget, 'Vallarta Vida' is located in the Old Vallarta you hear about with its cobbled streets and red brick rooftops covered with bouganvillia of every variety. Being just 3 short blocks to the ocean and the 'Malecon' (PV's famous ocean side esplanade), you will enjoy an easy walk to everything that Vallarta has to offer with no hills to climb and absolutely no need to drive or taxi. Due to the accessibility, our home is considered to be a very senior friendly location.

'Vallarta Vida's' interior space and furnishings were professionally designed by Paul K Stewart of Projekt Home, Toronto, Canada, and handcrafted by local Mexican Artisans.

The fully equipped cook's kitchen includes a centre island gathering spot with 5 stools, granite countertops, stainless steel cook top, oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, wine frig & micro-wave oven.

Adjoining the kitchen is the tastefully and comfortably furnished family room, a perfect reading/quiet area or gathering spot for guests while you test your culinary skills in the kitchen. A walk-out to a comfortably furnished patio provides inviting moments of quiet escape as you enjoy the mountainous vistas.

The 12' ceilings adds to the spaciousness of the combined living/dining room providing the appropriate setting for a magnificent dining table with comfortable seating for 10-12. It is the perfect setting for those quieter more intimate evenings for you and yours or for those larger dinner parties with family and friends.

After dinner, continue your evening by retreating to the adjoining custom designed and comfortably appointed living space, the perfect gathering spot. An entertainment system with a 52' TV (Shaw Cable & a blue ray player included) will provide you with background music to enhance the atmosphere or high definition television viewing. A surround sound bar is also available allowing you to plug in your smart phones to access your personal music. A few steps onto the balcony exposes you to the lights and the near & distant sounds of residential Old Vallarta.

Both bedrooms are furnished with locally crafted headboards & bedside tables highlighted by artistic hand blown glass lamps, clock radios with IPod docking stations & 42' TV's. Plenty of closet space and ensuite baths featuring marble floors, showers & countertops will add to the enjoyment of your vacation.

The Master bedroom has the advantage of a walkout to a large balcony shared with the living room.

A 2 piece guest bath adjoins the living areas for the convenience of your guests. Both sofas provide additional sleeping accommodation.

The lighting features throughout have been designed to enhance your desired atmosphere, with most lights on dimmers. Each room has ceiling fans and air conditioning units for your comfort.

A stacked front loading washer/dryer are included and there is an underground parking spot that can accommodate 2 cars parked in tandem.

The controlled access security includes entry intercom, security service and cameras. A water purification system means no bottles of water required, drink right from the tap. Free local, Canada & US telephone service as well as high speed wifi is also provided.

The breath taking 360 degree view from the rooftop terrace, which is just 1 level away, encompasses the ocean, downtown Vallarta, the magnificent mountains and lush jungle. The infinity pool, 2 hot tubs, fire pit and 3 separate living areas are there for your vacation enjoyment.

Come experience Old Town Vallarta with 'Vallarta Vida' as you home!

Harvey Malinsky purchased this condo in 2012

Why Harvey Malinsky chose Puerto Vallarta

If there's one street in Zona Romantica that's made for shoppers, it's Basilio Badillo found between Pino Suárez and Insurgentes.

Discover this local secret where you can find the very best in art, the most captivating jewelry (Cielito Lindo and A Touch of Gold), great clothes, scarves and handbags (Que Mona), lovely manta and colorful talavera and so much more.

This street has always had the moniker “Restaurant Row” since, even to this day, you won’t go hungry on Basilio Badillo. Popular places, ethnic eateries, local comidas corridas (with a daily menu at a low price), bakeries, seafood and meat, it’s all there.

Take your time to explore this trendy neighborhood. You may find yourself coming here time and again. No taxis needed unless you are venturing off for a major excursion.

From Vallarta 399, you are 3 blocks to Los Muertos Beach and the Malecon, where you can enjoy a leisurely stroll along the ocean to the newer part of PV.

Here are a few quotes from travel sites that reflect our sentiments about Zona Romantica.

...“There is a special spirit in the air, which will add something special into your heart. Well .. everywhere :-)” ...

“I love this area of Puerto Vallarta. It is the funky & eclectic area that many visitors miss. It is a MUST SEE area of town, Easily walk-able, safe and full of great restaurants, bars, cafes, shopping, galleries, beach bars, you name it.... it is all here. Great hotels and vacation rentals... so you will not even have to take a taxi to get to cool places. Come and explore the coolest area of Puerto Vallarta.”...

“This place is like New Orleans French Quarter. During the day it's bustling with workers and the business of the city. At night, the lights give it an atmosphere that lends to romantic walks and visits to restaurants and bars you may have missed during the day.”

What makes this condo unique

The roof top terrace and with its amazing amenities and mesmerizing views feels like an extension of our home being accessible within less than 1 minute by way of 1 flight of stairs or an elevator ride. Our WIFI is often available on the rooftop.

Walk out the door and you are on a street with no inclines.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Appreciated my stay at your wonderful Condo, everything, including the rooftop amenities with the infinity pool, the hot tubs, the people, the closeness to everything.....all of it exceeded my expectations. The Condo was so comfortable, filled with the comforts of home, that we ended up spending a more time relaxing and unwinding inside, than we thought we would, enjoying the comforts of your home. It truly was an amazing 2 week escape.

Beautiful condo in beautiful Puerto Vallarta

  • 5 of 5

A heavenly vacation thanks to the gorgeous accommodation. The condo itself was beautiful, fully equipped with everything you can imagine. Comfy beds, lovely terrace for dining, huge tv for that night we wanted to stay in and veg with Netflix, gorgeous kitchen with every amenity imaginable. I can't say enough about the place. Especially the resort type pool and lounge area on the roof. Perfect for an afternoon of sun bathing. The condo location couldnt have been better. Around the corner from a bakery, wine store and a number of amazing taco stands. City buses (50 cents) drive by every couple of minutes to take you wherever you need to go. Beach and Malecon are a 3 minute walk. I totally recommend your next vacation at Harveys beautiful condo.

Luxury in the heart of Puerto Vallarta

  • 5 of 5

I have never stayed in PV for an extended period of time but was so happy that I decided to stay at this beautiful condo. It is beautifully decorated and has all of the comfort of my home back in California. The location is spectacular. We walked everywhere - the beach, art galleries, cute cafes, historical downtown and little neighborhood grocery stores.

The only time we left the area around the condo was when we rented a Jeep and drove out to Sayulita for the day!

It was tough coming home after spending 8 days here. I highly recommend this condo as the place to stay on your next vacation to PV. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

The Best and Most Relaxing Vacation - Thanks to this Great Condo in the best Location!

  • 5 of 5

We went to PV couple times, and very fortunate to stay at this beautiful and luxurious Penthouse Condo! In fact, the words “beautiful and luxurious” are understatement. The reality of the condo and amenities are much better what you see in the photos.

First of all, we want to thank Harvey and the condo management company taking such great care of this place. We truly loved and appreciated everything in the condo, from kitchen to the living room, dining room, patios and 2 great master suites. The internet in the condo and the rooftop was very effective to stay connected! Nothing can beat the huge dining table! You have to see everything yourself to believe how awesome the place is.

Location is terrific! We walked around the city, back to the condo and rested, and then walked more. The rooftop pools are amazing and relaxing. It was truly a very romantic and relaxing vacation that we needed.

We want to go back in a heartbeat! Thanks again, Harvey!

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the most beautiful condos that we have ever seen. It affords a host of luxurious amenities and is conveniently located in the heart of the Romantic Zone.

We totally agree with all the other reviews and can only add that you must pull up a chair at the oversize dining room table. It's difficult to describe the feeling of eating a wonderful meal of fresh fish, vegetables and fruit that had been shopped for locally and cooked in the well appointed kitchen.

Mexican sun could not be enjoyed in a more desirable location than the rooftop infinity pool. It is spectacular to say the least. The proximity of the condo to the beach, shopping, markets, restaurants, entertainment and art galleries makes it ideal. Almost everything is within walking distance.

This is definitely a condo worth renting.

A beautiful condo in the center of Puerto Vallarta!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two adult daughters spent Christmas 2015 at this beautiful condo in the center of Puerto Vallarta. The layout of the condo was perfect with a large well-appointed and stocked kitchen, over-sized living/dining room, two large bedrooms with king sized beds along with nicely appointed bathrooms and two balconies overlooking the nearby hills. The condo was in a well-maintained, quiet, secure building with a stunning roof top infinity pool/hot tubs boasting 360 degree views of the ocean, mountains and downtown. If we hadn't enjoyed the beach so much, we could have spent the entire week at the roof top pool!

The location of the condo is the perfect launching point for a fabulous Puerto Vallarta vacation. Except traveling to and from the airport, we never used a taxi because anything and everything we needed was within walking distance. While we could have picked up local food from the nearby market and cooked in the chef's kitchen, we chose to eat out at many wonderful restaurants which were all within a 5 - 15 minute walk: La Palapa, on the beach; Cafe des Artistes and Trio in the downtown area; and Di Vino Dante across the street from the condo. To round out our eating extravaganza, we took a food tour with Vallarta Eats and discovered delicious tacos from street vendors on many of the streets in our very own neighborhood! Besides nearby restaurants, the condo is also close to a myriad of locally owned shops and art galleries. We spent more than a few hours at Galleria Dante enjoying their wide selection of art. When we weren't shopping, eating, or enjoying the rooftop pool, we spent leisurely days at Mantamar Beach Club where their attentive staff brought us festive cocktails and delicious food.

I can't say enough about this stunning condo, its location or the people and their home of Puerto Vallarta. It's a fabulous place to spend a week, month or longer! I'm just sorry we had to leave!

Excellent property in the heart of PV

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is as beautiful as the pictures and located in the heart of the Zona Romantica. It was exceeding well appointed with considerably more and varied kitchen condiments than most rentals. Rent this apartment.

Car: not necessary

From the front door of Vallarta 399, there are no hills to climb and no need for taxis. You are in the very heart of Old Vallarta, just steps away from the very best restaurants, bars, boutiques & other shopping to suit every taste, palette and budget. This is the Old Vallarta you hear about with cobbled streets and red brick rooftops covered with bouganvillia of every variety and only 3 short blocks to the ocean.
