About the property

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

Welcome to our gorgeous 2/2 Penthouse (La Palapa #703) 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 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.

Please Note - we also own the Penthouse next door - La Palapa #702 - VRBO Listing 905171 - check this listing if #703 calendar dates are taken...

About Allen Bell

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 purchased this condo in 2013

Why Allen Bell 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.

Amazing condo in the best building on Los Muertos Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We've been visiting Puerto Vallarta for ten years now, nine of which we've spent in the LaPalapa condominium complex. This was our favorite unit for several reasons, not the least of which was ease of booking! We hope to visit again next year - we've been home for less than 48 hours and we miss Mexico already!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was either exactly as advertised or even better. The condo was perfect. The location couldn't have been better. Don't rent a car. Easy to walk almost everywhere and cabs are plentiful and inexpensive. Do yourself a favor and stay here. We are glad we did.

One of the best places in PV!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful building, condo, beach - you name it. Everything was perfect for our stay. We rented both Units 702 and 703 for a perfect family get together for 4 couples. The views from the condos are amazing - exactly as pictured. You cannot get more oceanfront than this without being in the water! Both condos were very tastefully updated. Very nice. We will definitely try and book again. We have been coming to PV for over 25 years and you just cannot beat La Palapa for all of its wonderful features!!

Puerto Vallarta is a mystic city that harbors tradition in its plazas, in its streets, in its people - a city that expresses the color of its culture and natural beauty at every turn.

The Zona Romantica is especially charming...it's cobblestoned streets, friendly and intimate shops and boutiques, churches and restaurants, and of course fabulous beachfront all combine to make for a romantic and very accessible getaway.
