About David Cannon

on vacation in PV in 1999, I decided to look at real estate on the last day of my visit. When the agent showed me this unit I couldn't believe the location and spectacular view in the historic Condominios El Dorado could be mine. I took out an equity line on my house in San Francisco a few weeks later after viewing every other property for sale in the Romantic Zone. I gutted the interior and created a contemporary and eclectic vision; a playful blend of my favorite images using local materials and furnishings. As an interior designer this is my Vallarta vanity project and a very personal intimate statement. I usually visit 3 or 4 times a year, and enjoy my home on the most beautiful beach in Puerto Vallarta. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.

David Cannon purchased this condo in 1999

Why David Cannon chose Amapas

This is a great location right above Los Muertos Beach, centrally located to the nightlife, restaurants, and beach life that most people associate with Puerto Vallarta. Also, it is a sentimental favorite, because I used to hang out at the old El Dorado Restaurant when I first started visited Vallarta 1976. The town has changed a lot in the 35 years since my first visit, but I never get tired of the beaches, the sunsets, the people, and the wonderful climate. Welcome to my home in paradise.

A Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay at David's condo. It was exactly as pictured -- although the photos do fall short of capturing the experience of being in this wonderful space. My favorite things to so were to watch the sunset to the sound of the ocean waves with a drink in my hand and having a leisurely breakfast in the morning watching the life on the beach down below. What made everything so nice was how quiet and peaceful it was -- even though you are steps away from the beach with all the restaurants and bars right there. The condo is very tastefully furnished and the fact that there is daily housekeeping provided is an added plus. I look forward to returning!

Owner's Response: One of my favorite activities during my time at El Dorado 492 is having toast and coffee sitting at the balcony reading The New York Times on my Kindle. Thank you for sharing a lovely memory of your visit.

Great Place

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for one week at this location and we loved every minute. The condo is comfortable and very clean with a great view. Close to basically everything as it is right on the Malecon.

The only thing that we felt could change are the two fans, one in living room and one in bedroom. We couldn't use the bedroom one as it is very noisy. If you are looking for a great place in Puerto Vallarta this is it

Off the charts

  • 5 of 5

David's place exceeded our expectations and all the special touches made us feel so welcome. The location was perfect, the service at El Dorado again off the charts. We were there on our honeymoon for 7 days and we are still talking about the experience and our stay. David thank you for opening your home and making us feel at home. The staff was warm and genuine and gave us tears saying good bye. Every thing we needed was in the condo and daily service perfect. We will be back for our anniversary for sure.

Perfect Getaway Condo

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this condo. The location and the view was perfect! This was our second trip to Puerto Vallarta, and this where will be doing it from now on. The staff at Eldorado was friendly and helpful. The service at Vista grill below was excellent for lazy days and cocktails on the beach. You can't beat being right on the beach and walking distance to shops, restaurants, and attractions if you want to venture further. We had everything we needed to prepare romantic dinners at home too. This condo was perfect for the two of us.
