About Eric

We are a Midwestern family originally from Iowa, now located in Iowa, Chicago, and Northern Virginia. We have been visiting Puerto Vallarta for many years and use our condo annually.

Eric purchased this condo in 1999

Why Eric chose Puerto Vallarta

The condo complex of choice in the Puerto Vallarta marina area -- and one of the best condos in the complex. It's quiet and peaceful with excellent amenities, including the largest pool in Mexico.

What makes this condo unique

An outstanding view of the town of Puerto Vallarta in a clean, quiet complex that only a $5 - $8 taxi ride from the heart of town.

EXCELLENT

  • 5 of 5

We could not be more pleased with this Condo. It was very spacious, very nice and very clean. The complex and grounds were amazing and again very clean and maintained beautifully. We had a wonderful vacation. Also, Eric the owner is amazing. From the moment we booked our vacation he was so quick to respond to every question we had. When we arrived we had a question regarding the safe and he responded within 5 minutes. One night we had a power outage during a storm, he found out and called to check on us to make sure everything was ok. Now that is great service. We will definitely stay here every time we visit Puerto Vallarta.

Owner's Response: We were pleased with Jeri and her family. The communication was outstanding and they were very easy to work with. We'd be pleased to host them again.

Great condo, on the beach with HUGE swimming pools.

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four stayed here over Xmas break and had a great time. When I went to book the condo there were not any reviews on VRBO which made me a little nervous, so I asked Tom (the owner) if he could provide me with some references before I booked it. He responded very quickly, and provided details of previous guests who were happy for me to contact them directly. They provided great reviews so I felt confident in making our booking. Tom was VERY easy to work with and responded quickly to all my questions. The Property Manager, Roberto, lives in the same block and speaks excellent English, so very useful if there are any issues during your stay.

The condo itself was as portrayed in the photos - clean, spacious and with a great view of the bay. The pool area is HUGE - the kids loved it. The two larger center pools are not heated so were around 78 degrees (I think) - made for great lap swimming. The two pools on the ends were both heated to around 86 degrees. You can literally jump from the side of the pool onto the sandy beach - awesome (just don't let the security guards see you!).

You have to wear a bracelet when you're anywhere on the property grounds, other than in the apartment of course. The security guards will approach you if you're not wearing it. We didn't find wearing the bracelets a problem at all. There are plenty of sun beds to choose from - we never had any issues getting our four. It never felt crowded at the pool area even when busy. The bar area does drinks and food which they'll bring to you poolside, or you can eat in the cafe. All super cheap!

The condo is about a 10 to 15 minute walk from Marina Vallarta which has some wonderful restaurants to choose from. It's about a 20 minute taxi ride to downtown Vallarta. The price varied from 110 to 130 pesos. You can call ahead to the Security Gate and they can order a taxi for you, or just walk down. We never had to wait more than a couple of minutes even if we hadn't called ahead. You can rent jet skis, buy souvenirs and get your hair braided from sellers on the beach (just turn left and walk for one minute).

The biggest downside to this condo is the proximity to the airport (five minute drive), which meant airplane noise as it's close to the runway. Most planes take off during the day, but there were a couple of occasions when we heard them first thing in the morning. During the day it wasn't an issue when we were by the pool.

This is our second home. We rent it out when we are not there. Puerto Vallarta is SAFE -- if it wasn't, we wouldn't bring our grandkids there -- and we do! For extended stays, request rates.
