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 Puerto Vallarta

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.

Great Location

Verified Stay

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.

Great condo with Fantastic views

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

For many years we have rented condos in Puerto Vallarta and this is the best one yet!

Nicely furnished with great views right on the water front. Right next door to La Palapa.

Excellent service and staff as well. Only wish there was a TV in the living room. I don't like watching

TV in bed.

The owner was easy to contact and very nice as well.

We would definately rent again!

Another great vacation!

Thus is the third year in a row that we stayed in this condo. And as in the past, we had a great time. The view of the ocean and beach is wonderful. We relaxed on the pool deck daily, a nice spot to catch some sun with cooling breezes to help keep us refreshed. The staff at El Dorado is always friendly and helpful. And there are many great restaurants within walking distance. This is a great choice in the Playa Los Muertos area of PV.

Just another perfect vacation...

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from another delightful two weeks in this condo in the best location in Puerto Vallarta. We visit every year and have developed a sense of "Home sweet Home" the minute we pass through the front gate. The building staff are all very friendly and helpful and do an excellent job of keeping a straight, smiling face in spite of some of the questions and comments they must receive. The location of this building for beach access and its proximity to many wonderful restaurants, shopping, the Malecon and the Old Town itself is unrivaled and all within walking distance.

The condo decor provides a wonderful Mexican charm and a view of the beach and the bay that is captivating. We would respectfully ask the owner to change only one thing, and that is....NOTHING! For us it is perfection and relaxation personified and as before, we shall return.

Muchas gracias for sharing your gem with us.

The best view to wake up to every morning.

I couldn't say anything bad about this condo if I tried. it was in the perfect location, with the most perfect view. The condo is plenty large enough for two, it was very clean and the daily maid service was an added bonus. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again or to refer it to friends. This was my third trip to PV an by far my favorite. The attendant at the desk had the keys ready for me when I arrived, and was very helpful. You can't go wrong with this rental.

Wonderful condo directly on beach

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

My husband and I recently spent 10 nights in this condo. We arrived when they were cleaning our room but allowed us to stow our luggage and change clothes. The condo had beautiful views and was in a great location. Directly across the street is a market(not XOXO) and was so handy for a cold drink, snack, or coffee. The furniture was nice and bed comfortable. Was decorated eclectically(Mexican, Parisian, African etc). We had plenty of storage and bathroom recently remodeled. We only saw another couple once when we were in lobby. It seemed like we were only ones there! Never saw another person at pool. The pool is small but nice place to cool off in day or evening. The condo was perfect size for the two of us. The front desk clerks were very friendly and we're happy to offer us restaurant recommendations. We would return in a minute if we could!

Now my suggestions...

Elevator can't hold more than 3 people max! (Of course David can't fix that)

Bedroom TV should be wall mounted in bedroom. It took up entire top of dresser and covered up the mirror. I ended up moving the mirror to living room so I could use it and also for use of dresser top.

Shower has a hand held wand but little water pressure. The shower faucet would spray out and get everything wet if you used it. Needs to have a moveable fixture or a down rod fixture.

Softer higher line of sheets would be nice-Mexican scratchy sheets don't cut it! Or they need to use a fabric softener lol

Our maid was fantastic.

We love old town and this condo in the center of it. We could easily walk everywhere.

All and all it was a lovely condo directly on the beach with gorgeous views and sunsets! Thanks for letting us stay David
