Puerto Vallarta Condo Rental Photos and Description

Spacious 1 br 1 ba close to beach, restaurants, shopping. Private Courtyard.

Lovely 1 bedroom 1 bathroom condo in the heart of Puerto Vallarta's fantastic 'Romantic Zone'. Located at the top of the tram (no more climbing stairs!) on Olas Altas between PV's 2 newest, nicest resorts - the Pinnacle properties.

New for 2016 - nice sectional couch, new king size mattress in bedroom.

Features inviting private courtyard with custom fountain, all under the shade of a beautiful Higuera tree. King size bed, desk area in bedroom, full kitchen with quality utensils and dishware. Uncrowded pool is just steps away, cable/internet included. We even include Tommy Bahama beach chairs and umbrella for fun days on the beach!

Our condo is located between 2 properties which charge double (and more) our rates. Enjoy staying in Puerto Vallarta's best area for half price!

We have been coming to this condo complex for years - always a terrific experience and when we got the chance to 'buy in' we jumped at it. Now we would like to share our hidden (Condo El Escondido) treasure with you!

About Michael Gregory

My wife and I live in Oregon and have been escaping the cold winter weather by coming to Puerto Vallarta for about 15 years. Along the way we came across the Escondido Condo building and have stayed here ever since.

Michael Gregory purchased this condo in 2013

Why Michael Gregory chose Puerto Vallarta

This condo feels like home. The same staff that was here when we first stayed over 10 years ago is still here, the property is kept immaculate, and is in a safe, 'close to everything' part of town.

What makes this condo unique

The private courtyard with it's own fountain is a joy. Relax under the limbs of a huge Higuera tree in peace and privacy.

We love PV and have visited here the past 15 years. This condo met and in many way exceeded our expectations. If you are a seasoned traveler to PV like us and look for location and amenities, this is pretty hard to beat. So many condos give you 4 place settings of everything, a few pots and pans if you are lucky and that's what you get for your kitchen. I can't even mention all the particulars, but this kitchen is well equipped and likely meets the expectations you would expect in your own home for all the gadgets and utensils you would expect to prepare any meal. If you still aren't impressed, check out the pantry located in the bathroom for more appliances. In our opinion, the best feature of this condo is the private, gated outdoor living space that features a wonderful fountain. There is a very large rubber tree in this courtyard that provides plenty of shade and privacy. I love listening to the fountain in the shade of this tree while listening to the dripping of the fountain! Open your private gate and you walk into the common area swimming pool that is rarely crowded since this is a very small condominium community. The people who come here tend to be from everywhere and are very friendly! If you are like us and spend serious time in PV and want to balance your time between dining out and living in a home environment and demand a very central location, this place is pretty hard to beat for the bucks! We will definitely consider this place in the future.

Excellent condo for two

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in October and really enjoyed it. The condo is comfortable and has everything you need, even an umbrella and two chairs to use on the beach. The private courtyard is a great place to sit and have your coffee or glass of wine. The bathroom looks hurricane proof and we almost found out if it is!! The pool is just steps away and we didn't even lock the doors when we were at the pool. The staff were very nice. I recommend arranging a taxi from the airport with the owner if you don't know where it is, as its in a tucked away, private location.

Owner's Response: Chuck - Glad you had such a nice visit - and survived the great hurricane (scare) of 2015! Thank you again for all your efforts in protecting things before the hurricane landed. Look forward to having you again. Mike.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to PV for the first time to celebrate our 25th anniversary. The condo was a big part of the wonderful time we had in PV. Everyone associated with the rental were pleasant and professional. The unit and grounds were very clean and well maintained. We even enjoyed the 92 step climb from the beach each day - at least we were working off all that holiday fun! We will definitely book Escondito #1 again if we have the opportunity on our next PV visit!

Owner's Response: Cindy - So happy you enjoyed our casita. I agree about the stairs - they burn off at least a couple margaritas a day...can't wait to go down ourselves in January. Mike.

2 weeks in paradise...

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay at this property! We stayed 2 weeks here in January and just fell in love with this charming little condo. Very good location, an easy walk to literally dozens of restaurants, 5 minute walk to Los Muertos beach. The condo itself was spotless, not fancy but comfortable. Especially liked the kitchen, much better than most VRBO properties we've booked before. We will definitely be back here next year!

Great PV Condo

  • 5 of 5

Husband and I were in Puerto Vallarta, decided to extend our stay for a few days and this was one of the properties we contacted. Owners were very helpful, made us a great last minute deal. The condo itself was very charming and comfortable. It is right in the middle of the romantic zone, close to dozens of pubs and restaurants. We'd definitely recommend this condo, hope to stay here again in the future.
