Located in old town, Puerto Vallarta, Los Altos is one of PV's prime rentals. Located just 7 blocks from the the famous Malecon boardwalk, a walk or 5 minute taxi to the Romantic Zone and 6 blocks to the beach, this two bedroom two bath condo has spectacular views of The Bay of Banderas and the city. Los Altos is located in a quiet neighborhood and is near restaurants, clubs, beach activities, galleries and more. Grocery stores are nearby.

Newly furnished by one of Puerto Vallarta's best interior designers, this high floor condo has a new fully stocked kitchen with granite counter tops, Bosch gas range, refrigerator with filtered water and ice maker, washer and dryer, plenty of closet space, a large furnished terrace, flat screen cable TV in each room, WiFi and access to unlimited free telephone service to and from the US and Canada in addition to sixty minutes of free local calls to make those restaurant reservations!

Why Donald McDevitt or Al Torrence chose Puerto Vallarta

We loved the neighborhood. Close to all the activities in the Romantic Zone but away from the noise. We felt like we were in Mexico and welcomed by our neighbors. We are close to the art district and one of the finest restaurants in PV, Cafe des Artistes. We are also close to the farmers and fish market. You will feel like you are in Mexico.

What makes this condo unique

Mexican neighborhood. Safe community. Accessible to everything in the city. Beautiful living space. Quiet. Helpful staff.

Perfect Experience

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I had the best time exploring Puerto Vallarta from Al and Don's condo. It is perfectly located in the heart of the city so there is easy access to everything. The touristy area is around a 15 minute walk along the beach if you want to do that. If you like a little adventure and want to see the local culture, there are tons of amazing restaurants right down the hill. Al and Don were great about listing some of the better ones in a binder they put together. There is a grocery store close by too. The kitchen in the condo is high quality and well stocked. If you are up to it, buy some eggs, salsa, and fresh tortillas from the back of the store and make your own huevos rancheros for breakfast. Amazing. The view from the balcony is incredible. We saw some of the most beautiful sunsets we've ever seen in our lives. There is a less crowded beach at the bottom of the hill. As you walk south you will find more people and more restaurants with drink service on the beach. La Palapa, one of Al and Don's recommendations, is perfect for this. After a long day at the beach, the pool/hot tub at the condo is a great place to come back to for a little more relaxation.

Overall, the condo is very comfortable, clean, nicely furnished and well maintained. Fernando, Carlos (the two site managers), Al and Don were all super helpful in making sure we had the best experience while we were there. We had an amazing time. I couldn't recommend a better place. We will definitely be back again within the year.

Romantic Trip... Everything we could have asked for and MORE!

  • 5 of 5

My long-time girlfriend and I traveled to Mexico to celebrate each of our graduations from graduate programs. We went for a week and stayed at this beautiful condo in Old Town PV. The pictures included of the condo are beautiful, but they do not do the property justice -- It's far more breath taking in person! When we arrived Fernando (one of the managers) met us on site, and he showed us around the property and recommended some local hidden gems). Although we didn't really need the management team, both members were easy to contact by text/call. During our stay a very kind woman came to clean the condo and did the laundry for us (sheets/towels), which was very helpful! The owners were also very helpful both before and during our trip. They provided a helpful binder of recommended restaurants, tours, the WIFI password, and other important tips. We particularly appreciated the internet phone (dials in Mexico and to USA with no added charge!). We also took advantage of the in-house washer/dryer to be able to pack lightly (such an added bonus!). Their recommended restaurants were also PERFECT. We had tremendous meals every day, and their listed restaurants were incredible. To name a few: we loved Barracuda, La Palapa, Cafe de Artistes, and Pan y Que. We would highly recommend traveling to PV and staying in this Old Town Condo - Such a beautiful, convenient, and private location. The condo is a quick walk to the beach, and a lovely scenic walk (quick cab ride) to all other destinations throughout PV. We particularly loved being in the heart of downtown PV - It was charming, energetic, and beautiful. We loved the condo so much, we have already contacted the owners about coming back in the next year.

This condo has thee most amazing view and is beautiful! We called about it after finding out that the place we had booked was not going to work for us and these owners went out of their way to make our stay wonderful! They provided us with phone numbers of taxi cab drivers( that speak English), directions in Spanish to their place, Carlos's phone number who could help you with about anything, grocery store locations, restaurants that were superb to eat at, and everything went off with out a hitch even with short notice of the booking. Really enjoyed the internet phone line to stay in touch with business and family back home. Planning on coming back! Why yes, we live in Iowa with snow! Mark, Debbie, Kerry and Mary
