About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Condo Linda Vista, the most sought after condo in the Selva Romantica complex, is a spacious and elegant fully furnished 2 bedroom/2 bathroom, luxury condo that sleeps up to four persons. It has a full kitchen with a state-of-the-art water filtration system, washer/dryer, high ceilings, arched doorways, terracotta floors, rich, exotic parota wood throughout, lush, colorful, tropical gardens, and a private wrap-around, split-level terrazza with its own built-in gas BBQ. Perfect for indoor/outdoor living. The condo has beautiful views of the mountains, city and bay, offering lovely sunrises, dramatic sunsets and a front row view of the nightly fireworks over Banderas Bay.

Nestled in the heart of Old Town Vallarta, or Zona Romantica, steps away from countless five star restaurants, galleries and boutiques and less than a five minute walk from Playa Los Muertos, and the pedestrian Malecon, Condo Linda Vista is located in the beautiful, hilltop complex of Selva Romantica which is one of PV's most lush, beautiful, tropical complexes.

Selva Romantica is an exquisite gated community of white-washed colonial Mexican architecture. It boasts lush tropical gardens, an inviting jacuzzi, state-of-the art gym, community palapa, and a large private saltwater infinity pool. The resort is also equipped with free wifi throughout. The grounds feature panoramic, sweeping views of the city, jungly hillsides and the Bay of Banderas.

Selva Romantica exceeds the beauty of more traditional towering complexes nearby due to its idyllic tropical grounds rich with palms, perfumed flowering shrubs, fruit and flowering trees (mangoes, avocado and papayas). Some of the trees on the property are more than 100 years old. Hibiscus, jasmine, copa de oro, and bourganvillea also abound and attract numerous species of butterflies of all hues and humming birds. You might even get a glimpse of an iguana!

About Lolita

I (Lolita) was born and raised in India of Indian/English parents and subsequently lived and worked in Africa, Iran, Britain and the U.S.. I manage Condo Linda Vista with my daughter Tianna who lives in Los Angeles. Condo Linda Vista is our family vacation home which we visit a few times a year and offer as a vacation rental the rest. We have taken great care to decorate it beautifully with exquisite furnishings from both India and Mexico. We hope you choose Condo Linda Vista for your Mexico vacation. We're sure you'll enjoy it as much as we do!

Lolita purchased this condo in 2006

Why Lolita chose Puerto Vallarta

The property is unique, welcoming and so atmospheric. We're always so happy to be there and always so sad to leave. It has everything you'd ever need and feels like the most heavenly vacation every moment we're there. And it's in such a walkable and lively area with pretty cobblestone streets and great views at every term. It's easily accessible from North America with friendly people, great food and lots of activities. There's so much to explore including mountains, ocean, beaches, islands, jungles. And the locals are a diverse mixture of native Mexicans and foreigners from the world over.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is one of the most unique (and sought after) in the Selva Romantica condominium resort due to its private location, garden surroundings and wrap-around split level terraza. It's also one of the only condos with its own stainless steel built-in BBQ and burner. the condo has state of the art modern conveniences yet is surrounded with beautiful, traditional Mexican wood, tiling and gracious fabrics from India. It's so peaceful that when you're in it you'd never know you're just a block away from some of the best restaurants, beaches and activities that Puerto Vallarta has to offer.


Car: not necessary

Nestled in the heart of Old Town Vallarta, or Zona Romantica, steps away from countless excellent restaurants, markets, galleries and boutiques and less than a five minute walk from Playa Los Muertos, Condo Linda Vista is located in the beautiful, hilltop complex of Selva Romantica.

At the end of our street is a pier where you can take boat trips to islands, remote beaches, and for snorkeling and scuba diving. You can also take beautiful beach walks headed south through Conchas Chinas and other neighborhoods, discovering quiet beaches, and restaurants overlooking the bay.

The pedestrian friendly malecon is also at the end of our street for idyllic waterfront strolls past activities and restaurants and other zones of central Puerto Vallarta.

Renting a car isn't necessary, however, if you want to rent one for out of town excursions, the condo has its own parking spot.

All expectations exceeded!

  • 5 of 5

Just a quick belated note about our week in Linda Vista. The reviews, pictures and experiences that have been documented on this property and location are spot on! Myriam was a wonderful host and the condo exceeded all expectations. I would have ZERO reservations on renting this property.

What a lovely home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful week in the Linda Vista! The photos of the condo are exact and the feel of the place is very comfortable! We loved spending time by the pool and making the short (2 block) walk down the hill to the Malecon. Myriam was very helpful as we arrived and made sure that everything was perfect! Thanks for this great vacation!

Heading Back for the 4th Time

  • 5 of 5

I have spent three tremendous consecutive winter holidays staying at Condo Linda Vista in beautiful Puerto Vallarta. My friends and I find the condo to be ideal for our needs. We love the location, and the setting in the Selva Romantica property/complex with all that it has to offer - well-maintained gardens, views, pool, hot tub, friendly and helpful staff, and so on. The condo itself is clean, bright, and comfortable with plenty of space inside and outside, all tastefully decorated. It is always a pleasure and a smooth process to deal with the owner. Condo Linda Vista has become our home away from home. We're heading back for the fourth time next winter!

A marvelous getaway from winter !!!!

  • 5 of 5

We experienced our first stay at Linda Vista this past February & looking forward to returning next year. Lolita's condo far exceeded our expectations. Located in the heart of the Romantica Zone, we had easy access to many wonderful shops, restaurants & beaches. Malacon was an easy stroll away & we spent many evenings there enjoying the people & different types of entertainment. At the condo each morning we opened all the patio doors and enjoyed the breezes & sounds of the city. The infinity pool was fantastic

& never too crowded. We enjoyed talking with other guests & learning about other events & things to do in PV.

Very Pleasant Week at Condo Linda Vista

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Puerto Vallarta 10 times and stayed in various areas. When we go to Puerto Vallarta, we don't like to stay in all-inclusive resorts - there is a real city here! The Romantic Zone has the specific advantage of close proximity to the beach with many nice restaurants (quite a few on the beach) in an "old town" setting. The Selva Romantica complex is on a hill several blocks up from the beach which gives great views of the ocean, mountains, and city. We are very impressed with the maintenance and appearance of Selva Romantica. There are always workers cleaning, sweeping, raking, watering, etc. The grounds are lush and beautiful. The pool area is very well maintained and is clean and attractive. It does require some physical ability to handle steps, although this condo has less stairs than others in the complex.

Condo Linda Vista is a terrific condo. The photos and descriptions are quite accurate. This is an "owners unit" (instead of the cookie-cutter investment units). We particularly enjoyed opening the three french doors and we spent much time relaxing and reading on the balcony and terrace areas. We particularly enjoyed La Palapa (expensive), La Piazetta (moderate), Joe Jack's Fish Shack (inexpensive) and Pie in the Sky (bakery/cafe) for dessert--all within walking distance.

Third Time Is a Charm

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Condo Linda Vista for the third time. This was our tenth trip to Puerto Vallarta. Condo Linda Vista is, without question, our favourite place to stay. The condo itself is spacious, clean, comfortable, and gorgeous. The private outdoor patio is even more impressive. There is an abundance of space with different areas to find sun or shade. The condo is in the Selva Romantica complex. The pool, hot tub, gardens, and open space are second to none in Puerto Vallarta. The setting and views are absolutely stunning. Shops, restaurants, art galleries, and so on are literally steps away. We are looking forward to our fourth stay at Condo Linda Vista. We cannot imagine staying anywhere else.
