About Patrick Fox or Cynthia Fox
We are Cynthia and Patrick Fox, an almost retired couple, splitting our time between a condo in the city of St. Louis, Missouri; a weekend, rural retreat in St. Francois County, Missouri; and Puerto Vallarta. We have been married since 1993 and have one grown son, named Frank. Cynthia grew up in St. Louis, but lived briefly in San Francisco, CA., Charlotte, NC and Decatur, IL. She is an almost retired lawyer and mediator. Patrick Fox grew up in Cincinnati, OH, and then moved to New York, NY to work in the advertising/consumer products industry, before relocating to St. Louis as a result of a corporate acquisition. He is almost retired with Casa Fox and volunteer work as his primary occupations.
Patrick Fox or Cynthia Fox purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Patrick Fox or Cynthia Fox chose Emiliano Zapata
We discovered Puerto Vallarta quite be accident. Around the year 2000, we scheduled a trip to Playa del Carmen, Mexico, but Cynthia came down with the 24-hour flu the evening before departure. Our tour company refused to issue a refund, but after much cajoling and negotiating, relented by offering a trip to Puerto Vallarta if Cynthia was well enough to travel the next day. She was and the rest, as the saying goes, was history. We have never planned another trip to Playa del Carmen, but we returned to Puerto Vallarta about 15 times before purchasing Casa Fox in early 2016. From our very first bus ride into town from the airport, we have been charmed and captivated by the gentle friendliness of the people of Vallarta, the beauty of the bay, city and mountains, the wonderful food, and all the great opportunities to walk, explore and shop. From the very first trip, we developed an end-of-day ritual of a margarita and a sunset before dinner. That ritual continues today, almost always from our terrace at Casa Fox, or on the Zenith's rooftop. We hope that you come to love PV as much as we do!
What makes this Condo unique
We purchased our condo while the building was still under construction. Our apartment's shell was completed with walls, floors, ceilings, doors and windows, but none of the finishing materials and components. We were sold by the view from the living room, dining room and terrace of the ocean/bay, city and mountains, all spectacular day and night. We were also sold by The Zenith's central location in the Zona Romantica, in the middle of it all. There was nothing comparable in anything close to our price range. We were immediately smitten, and we are still!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.

Thank you very much for your positive review. We enjoyed having you as our guest and we look forward to your returning.
Excellent location, beautiful view, very clean, efficient and meticulous owners
Thank you for your kind words! We do everything we can to make a stay at Casa Fox, our home in PV, as wonderful as possible. It is so nice when those efforts are recognized and appreciated.
You are welcome back at any time.
Thank you for being our guests.

Nice place, tastefully decorated, fully supplied
Great owners. They stay here too, so it’s not just some investor who puts in a straw bed. I slept 9 hours easily, versus 7 at home. Not so in other rentals. Two bathrooms made it easy for my wife and I to get ready quickly; not having to wait our turn. Absolutely close to EVERYTHING! The theatre, (ACT II) the bakery (Il Mercado), the beach, great dining (Bravo, Siam, Dolce Vita II, Margaritaville, etc), the Bus to Boca, shopping on Basillo Badillo (the Robson Street, Vancouver of PV.
I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Casa Fox, our home in Vallarta. Thank you for taking the time to submit your review.
I am happy that you emphasized how close our home is to everything that is great about Puerto Vallarta. Our building is at the crossroads of the Zona Romantica. To the west and east is the ocean, the shops, clubs and many of the restaurants that draw so many from around the glove to PV, while to the east and north you move into "native" Vallarta, with the local shops, "hole-in-the wall" restaurants, bodegas and homes where the local population works, shops and lives.
Yours is our 35th review, and 30 of those have been 5-Star, with the rest, like yours, have been 4-stars. We very much value and appreciate the 4 stars, but I am wondering what we could have done to earn your fifth star. I will contact you separately to learn more about what we could have done better.
Thank you for being our guests and I look forward to having you in our home again!
Casa Fox , Zenith Condominiums
Thank you Patrick and Cynthia for sharing your beautiful PV home with us for the past month. Your condo is beautifully decorated, close to absolutely all the charm, ambience and Mexican culture that we were looking for...not to mention within walking distance of pretty much everything from the Malecon, to amazing restaurants, fruit and vegetable and seafood markets and other business services.
The terrace is simply stunning (both day and night) and provides breathtaking views of the bay and the surrounding city.
The staff at Zenith are wonderful, attentive and full of knowledge about the area and work hard to keep everything in pristine condition. It is very appreciated
We return home today to a much colder climate but with wonderful memories that will have to keep us going until next year.
Dear Keith & Joanne,
We are delighted that you both enjoyed our home in PV. You were wonderful guests and welcome back at any time!
The two best aspects of Casa Fox are what you mentioned...it's in middle of everything that's great about Vallarta, and the view from our terrace is something you will never forget. That view sold us from the very first time we walked into our future home.
Also, I'm glad you wrote about the staff at our building. They truly do everything they can to make everyone welcome.
We both look forward to your return next year. Thank you for the reservation!
Patrick & Cynthia Fox
Casa Fox is in the middle of the Zona Romantica, 3 blocks from the ocean, and in the heart of everything worth doing in Puerto Vallarta, much of it within walking distance, and the rest within an easy bus or taxi ride
