Puerto Vallarta Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath (sleeps 4+) Ocean-view Penthouse On Playa De Los Muertos

Welcome to our gorgeous 2/2 penthouse located above the highly distinguished la palapa restaurant, on the sands of playa de los muertos, in the heart of the zona romantica. Our unit includes stunning panoramic beach and la banderas bay views, air conditioning in all rooms, free wifi, cable flat screen tv in living room, pull-out couch in LR, fully equipped kitchen, high quality linens and towels, filtered water, in a concierge-building, right in the heart of the most beautiful area in all of sunny puerto vallarta. Enjoy fine dining downstairs, and literally take the elevator down to the sand and find a great beach chair to lie out and enjoy the tropical breezes and warm waters of banderas bay. Or take the few short steps up to the roof from our penthouse, and enjoy a dip in the pool with panoramic views of the city. Housekeeping is provided daily (except sundays and national holidays); a laundry service is a short walk away so you can drop off your clothes in the morning and get them fluffed and folded while you are relaxing and sunning or sightseeing, or diving, or shopping or whatever you love to do on your vacation.

About Allen Bell & Natalie Bergman

We are two couples who decided to own a little slice of paradise, in one of the most beautiful buildings in the most charming area of Puerto Vallarta. We usually live in Los Angeles, but Puerto Vallarta is one of our homes away from home, and we are so happy to be sharing it with you.

Allen Bell & Natalie Bergman purchased this condo in 2013

Why Allen Bell & Natalie Bergman chose Puerto Vallarta

Two of us met while staying in this building several years ago, and have waited until this penthouse unit came on the market to be able to share it with friends, family and with you. The concierge building is completely safe and secure, with 24-hour on site staff. The views are breathtaking and you are literally on the sand. Once you arrive at our unit, you do not need a car. Almost everything you could ever want including fine dining, great nightlife, beautiful beaches, charming cobblestoned streets all surround you.

What makes this condo unique

Our building houses the famous La Palapa Restaurant; considered one of the most distinguished restaurants in all of Mexico and internationally. The food and service are amazing. The penthouse is large and welcoming, with a great living area including a large outdoor patio which is fabulous for dining out under the sun and the moon. Or for enjoying a south-of-the-border cocktail before heading out for dinner at one of the excellent restaurants in town.

Impeccable in every respect ! You just cannot beat the location, amenities, views and choice of restaurants that this condo location has to offer. The condo is very comfortable for 4 and is very well maintained. We spent many of our evenings soaking in the amazing sunsets and sipping our favourite wine/tequila. The building is very secure with the condo complex itself very clean and self sufficient. Highly recommended.

Should you stay here dont forget to visit the juice ladies half block to the right and the mercado muncipial !

Even better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in the Penthouse and this property over delivered in every way. The view is even more spectacular in person. The condo is very tastefully decorated and has every thing you will need for your stay. The building is spotless, and very secure. As an added bonus is it is located above one of the best restaurants in P.V. and is situated to have the most stunning view of the bay. This will be a "go to" for every trip. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Gorgeous condo!

  • 5 of 5

This penthouse condo was a perfect place for us to stay in on our visit to Puerto Vallarta. Situated right on the beach, the views were spectacular. We were mesmerized by the sunsets and really enjoyed our literal "birds-eye" view of the sea birds. This condo was so clean and we didn't lack for anything, the TV even worked! It is right in the heart of some of the best restaurants in Mexico...something for every palette.

If you are planning a trip to PV, splurge on this place, you will not regret it! We can't wait to return.

Very nice, comfortable with an amazing view!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay, great location, nice people who have condos there.

A couple things that you could do in the future, put the frequencies of the radio stations and what they play on the radio,

Add a cooler in your items to use for putting beer etc. in.

Update a few things that are worn out.

Other than that everything worked fine, was comfortable and convenient. The pool was great, and just a few steps away.

We pride ourselves on keeping everything as new and modern and fresh and functional as possible so we will make sure that everything is up to date. We have daily housekeeping and plant service to ensure that nothing is "worn out" and we visit the condo ourselves very frequently to ensure that all is perfectly in order. Look forward to welcoming you back to lovely La Palapa in the future.

Beautiful View!

  • 5 of 5

This year marked our 13th visit to Puerto Vallarta. We have stayed in many great condos in Zona Romantica, but without a doubt this condo had the best view. We loved eating our meals on the patio overlooking the ocean. Watching the activity in the area was great entertainment and the sunsets were spectacular. The condo itself was extremely comfortable and felt like our home away from home very quickly. Martha, our housekeeper, was amazing and very warm and friendly. In fact, every staff member we encountered was helpful and friendly. One of the reasons we chose this condo (other than its great location) was the elevator. We were especially grateful for the elevator when we returned from shopping at Mega and had bags of groceries to take to our condo. The gentleman at the front desk also assisted us with getting everything up to our "home." What a nice gesture! We were so impressed with the condo and the staff at La Palapa that we have already made our reservation for next year.
