About the property

Hi:) A quick note to everyone.. We have noticed positing’s that state “Downtown Puerto Vallarta” and yet you still need a car or a taxi to get to downtown. We are 100% DOWNTOWN and DIRECTLY on the BEACH so you can walk to everything - NO car/taxi needed, just an FYI.

Completed in 2009 This Truly unique and 1 of a kind TWO STORY Duplex Ocean Front PENTHOUSE features three MASTER bedrooms & 3 and 1 half Baths + 3 AMAZING BALCONIES with Ocean and Mountain VIEWS from the roof top decks.

Located on Camarones Beach in downtown Puerto Vallarta and just steps away from the Malecon sits Puerta al Mar. This boutique beach front Mexican style building has traditional Mexican finishes. Puerta al Mar also offers elevator service, swimming pool, Jacuzzi, outdoor bar, direct beach access, covered parking with attendant and 24 hour security.

Located in downtown Puerto Vallarta, also known as 'Viejo Vallarta,' which is the site of the original fishing village that turned into a world-renowned tourist destination. With cobblestone streets, a pretty town square, and Puerto Vallarta's most famous landmark, the Cathedral Our Lady of Guadalupe, 'El Centro' has a unique charm and character of its own. A mile-long boardwalk known as the 'Malecon' runs along the downtown oceanfront street, Paseo Diaz Ordas, where you will find shops, restaurants, galleries, specialty stores and traditional marketplaces facing the ocean.

Paradise may be considered a state of mind, but when visiting Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, one definitely experiences a real life paradise.

Marina Vallarta Golf Club Located in Marina Vallarta, 3.6 miles, since most of the fairways are lined with palm trees and guarded by water, a premium is placed on accuracy.

Flamingos Golf Club Located in Nuevo Vallarta, this traditional-style course enjoys the reputation of being the easiest to play because of its wide-open fairways.

Punta Mita Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Located 40 minutes to the north, there are two 18-hole courses. Pacífico eight picturesque holes bordering the ocean. Hole #3b, called the “Tail of the Whale,” is a 194-yard, par 3 that plays across the ocean to a rocky island green. Bahía has seven oceanfront holes and is a little more challenging than

Mayan Palace Golf Club Located in Nuevo Vallarta, this is a fun course, though bunkers and water hazards are everywhere. The #14 signature hole is a beautiful 166-yard, par 3 with the ocean on the left and a lake on the right.

El Tigre Golf Club Located in Nuevo Vallarta, this is a lengthy course protected by traps and water throughout. The mammoth finishing hole is the par 5, 621-yard “Tiger.” Most golfers find it untameable because water runs all the way down the left side and the multi-tiered green is surrounded by sand.

Vista Vallarta This is actually two spectacular golf courses at one location, 5.2 miles, just 10 minutes east of the airport. The Nicklaus course has garnered worldwide recognition since hosting the 2002 EMC World Cup Championship.

Truly fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for two weeks and loved it. All the comforts of home. Great staff, resolved issues quickly. Very luxurious but cheaper than getting 3 hotel rooms for our family of 6.

The pictures listed does not do the property justice. The balcony overlooking the ocean, amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and a few friends visited Puerto Vallarta for the first time. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Bernice who is the property manager. Bernice went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of. Bernice booked us an excursion and a good deal, called taxis whenever we needed it, and also gave us recommendations on must sees in the city of Malecon. The whole staff at the property were very helpful and the hospitality was second to none. We felt at home and felt the love our entire stay. We had so much of a positive experience that we are already planning our next trip and staying at the same villa.

The location on Camarones Beach is pretty awesome

  • 5 of 5

We spent Easter week here and had a lovely stay. The place looks exactly like the pictures, the rooms are a little nicer than pictured, and the views from the three patios are absolutely gorgeous. The shared pool is clean and well-maintained.

The location on Camarones Beach is pretty awesome. The grocery store is a block away and I recommend checking it out. The bus stops are close by as well and it's a super fun, cheap, fast and slightly crazy way of getting about town.

Issues: Shower in the upstairs bedroom has insufficient water pressure to be usable. There wasn't a lot in terms of household supplies: no extra toilet paper, cooking oil, spices, coffee, dish soap, etc. If you're there for a week you'll be re-supplying those items yourself.

Positives: We left windows and doors open the whole time and didn't feel the need to put valuables in the safe or run the air conditioning at all. This building feels really safe and the direct ocean breezes keep this area's temperatures very comfortable.

Located right on Camarones beach and within walking distance of all the action in Puerto Vallarta.

  • 5 of 5

Relatively new property with all mod cons including washing machine, clothes drier and AC. Furnishings are modern. An elevator provides easy access to higher floors. Views from the veranda are superb and expansive of the Bay of Banderas, especially when viewing a spectacular sunset.

The property's private beach is just a few steps away and the swimming pool on the property is just the right size. There is also a nice entertaining area adjacent to the pool.

One of the biggest assets of the property is the friendly helpful staff. Night security is provided.

My family came here for Spring Break at the end of March 2017. We had a wonderful time here.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very roomy for our family of 7. We witnessed beautiful sunsets every evening either from one of our balconeys, or from the beach in front of the condo. The condo itself is very upscale with all the amenities needed for cooking, doing laundry etc... We made breakfast mostly and then walked to restaurants for lunch and dinner. There are plenty of resturaunts, shopping, large grocery store within a 3-5 minute walk from the condo. Also, it is just a short walk to the Malceon. We did not rent a car because we didn't need one. Bernice helped us plan a snorkeling and waterfall trip and a Zipline trip in the rainforest. We enjoyed them both. The whole staff there are outstanding. We did have the driver pick us up and take us to the airport. That was nice. The complex very secure too. There is always someone there 24 hours a day to let you in the building, as it is locked to the public unless you have a key. The hot tub was not working when we were there so we were a little disappointed in that but not a deal breaker. If you haven't been to Puerto Vallarta this is a great way to see it and experience the culture there.

Wonderful vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had three couples stay at this wonderful penthouse location! You literally are right on the beach. Hearing the sound of the waves from the ocean is so relaxing. The staff there really made our stay even more enjoyable. We highly recommend getting a private chef and selecting from a list of very fine Mexican dishes. This is by far the best food I have ever eaten. They took six hours in our kitchen to prepare and then served us on our patio. Yes, we were looking at the ocean and sunset and talk about a night to remember. You will not be disappointment with your stay here. We hope to be back in the next year.
