About David Cannon

This is a photo of me in the courtyard of Posada Roger during my first visit to Puerto Vallarta in 1976. On a whim, I purchased this condo on the last day of my vacation in November, 1999. I remodeled the condo in a modern but multi-cultural style with mostly Mexican finishes and materials. I usually visit 3 or 4 times a year, and enjoy my home on the most beautiful beach in Puerto Vallarta.

Why David Cannon chose Puerto Vallarta

This is a great location right above Los Muertos Beach, centrally located to the nightlife, restaurants, and beach live 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.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I had a great stay here. The views are exceptional and the condition of the unit is in great shape. The staff here are very helpful. Very comfortable bedding and though the bedroom is at the back, near the street - the noise wasn't too bad. The guy directly below will called me three times complaining that we need to pick up the chairs when we get up from them so they don't rub and make a noise below. My suggestion ...take the phone off the hook! David might want to consider felt pads on the chairs to keep this gentleman at ease.

Perfect choice

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to PV and I'm on crutches!....David's condo was the ideal location for us. Lots of restaurants/bars close by (thanks for your suggestions David..all very accurate); grocery store and taxi rank across the street; spectacular view of the beautiful beach and a condo exactly as depicted with every comfort of home...very clean, a huge comfy bed, quality linen, well equipped kitchen, comfy chairs/couch and excellent wifi. The staff were all very helpful and friendly and we felt very secure...we particularly loved being able to leave the balcony doors wide open at night to enjoy the sea breeze and sound of the ocean. David responded very promptly to any emails and we actually met him as we checked in....always nice to put a face to a contact. We have already recommended to family and friends and would definitely stay here again when PV beckons us.

Absolutely the very perfect place in PV

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this fantastic condo six times. The first visit, we fell in love with the place.

The view is second to none. The way the breeze flows from the balcony to the front has the place feeling fresh all the time.

I love the owner's choice of art and decor.

It is so welcoming. The concierge is wonderful and extremely helpful. It feels very safe. The place is so clean with daily maid service and abundance of fresh towels daily.

I love the marble floors which are also wiped down daily.

There is a new gas stove, new cutlery and pots and pans as well as very nice dishes. The air conditioning in the bedroom is a nice touch but we did not need it with the wonderful breeze from the bay.

I love the pool deck with its fantastic view of the bay and the beach. The deck chairs and the nice tables with the shade umbrellas are wonderful for relaxing in the sun. The added bonus for us is the wifi and the big flat screen tv.

The exciting part of this condo is the outstanding location. It is just above the perfect beach. You can walk everywhere in Old Town, stroll along the Malecon and visit wonderful restaurants. David, the owner, is so helpful in suggesting great places to eat in the area. He is always so prompt in responding to any enquiries.

My friends are very envious of me getting to stay here.

This truly is a jewel of a place. We will be returning for Christmas and New Years.

Owner's Response: As a regular client in 402, your feedback is so helpful for prospective guests to make informed choices on where to stay in Vallarta. I appreciate your taking the time to share your experience, and I never get tired of receiving compliments about El Dorado 402. To give you an update, in the next few months I am reupholstering the living room lounge furniture with a seashore-pattern fabric, and replacing the solid-color pillows with a complimentary blend of patterns to give the sitting area a more contemporary look. The bathroom will also be modernized by removing the 17 year-old jacuzzi and replacing it with a matte black porcelain-mosaic tile soaking tub. I look forward to getting your feedback on these upgrades when you visit for the Holidays. Thanks again for your continued support!

Location, location, location!!

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Puerto Vallarta for 25 years staying in a variety of hotels and all-inclusives. For the last several years however we have stayed at this beautiful condo in the old town, our most recent stay being just two months ago. The condo itself and the location are exactly as represented and leave absolutely nothing more to be desired for us. We will return again this year to the old town and of course to David's charming condo because it is Puerto Vallarta as it should be. You will enjoy this condo if you like to be within walking distance to a wide variety of restaurants, shopping, the Malecon and of course the beach. The owner is very pleasant to deal with and provides a wealth of helpful information to those who may be new to this area. Gracias David for sharing your condo with us.

Stunning view, comfortable, EASY!

  • 5 of 5

From the friendly front-desk, to the stunning view from the folding glass doors, this was absolutely the perfect place for our 10-day stay in Puerto Vallarta. The king-size bed was super comfy and the unit tastefully decorated with some beautiful Mexican art work and lots of bright colors. Being right on the beach, we had easy walking access to some wonderful food, markets, bars, and all the sights of Old Town Puerto Vallarta. The food was uniformly excellent. The people and businesses of PV are among the friendliest and most helpful we have ever encountered extending beyond the service industry and tourism standards. This extended to the population as a whole. The unit was clean, well stocked and the owner was super efficient in returning our emails, sharing contact information with us and providing us with lists of places to visit in the area.

We met other folks in our building who had been returning for as long as 25 - 30 years. That is a testament to the staff, the well-run condo and the location. We are already planning to return.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much. What you so beautifully share in this review is not only about the condo, but also your experience with the El Dorado Condominium complex,, the wonderful staff, the beachfront setting, and the surrounding community. Ever since I started traveling in Vallarta in the mid 1970's I have found Los Muertos Beach to be one of the unique vacation destinations in the world, and I am very proud to play a small part in contributing to this special place.
