Puerto Vallarta Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms - King + Queen + Full Sofa / 2 Full Baths + Half Bath - SLEEPS 6

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.

Beautiful, modern, waterfront condo, a perfect place for a great vacation. Completed in 2009 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 offers a total of eight units, have traditional Mexican finishes and offer Mountain and beach front views. Puerta al Mar also offers elevator service, swimming pool, jacuzzi, outdoor bar, direct beach access, covered parking with attendant and 24 hour security.

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. Phone:

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.

Would definitely recommend to my friends & family

  • 5 of 5

Had a most enjoyable stay! The staff was wonderful, totally helpful and considerate. Lovely ocean views, the convenience of the supermarket only 2 blocks away worked beautifully. Also the fact that the Malecon is only 10 minutes away, it couldn't be a more desirable location.

I also had an extraordinary Massage Therapist come in, she

did excellent work.

Very much appreciated the fact that there was a washing machine and dryer in the Condo - super convenient.

Would definitely come again!

An ecellent condo in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here five (5) nights, April 10 - 15, 2016.

This was an excellent choice! The property was just as described, very clean, modern and well maintained. It has everything you would need in the Kitchen, laundry machine and nicely appointed rooms and bathrooms. It is really close to everything (shopping, dining and a grocery store. The manager, Berenice will also help arrange tours and excursions.

What really made this a great stay was the attentiveness of the Owner and her staff. They were very friendly, helpful and always willing to help make sure everything was taken care of.

The location is fantastic, only about 20 minutes through the town from the airport. The Owner arranged transfers to/from with a stop on the way in at a local grocery store to pick up necessities and food, which was very convenient. The driver also helped carry everything up to the third floor (elevator was being repaired while I was there).

The beach is very quiet during the week, but a little busier on the weekends as it is a public beach. The Owner's staff put out beach chairs and umbrellas each day to lounge under the palm trees. The beach is literally right there in front of you, and very swim-able.

The pool was very nice, clean and warm. My only suggestion would be to have some umbrellas available to use on the pool deck if you don't want to be on the beach, as the orientation does not allow for any shaded areas on the pool deck.

The interior furnishings were very clean and comfortable, the bed was great and I slept good every night.

I would highly recommend this place if visiting Puerta Vallarta. It is close (walking distance) to many shops, excellent places to eat and a large grocery store. I would most recommend it for the Owner and her staff who did an excellent job of taking care of everything from the initial reservation and arrangements all the way through my return to the airport.

I have stayed at many similar type of places through VRBO and Home Away, and this particular one is one of the best I have found so far. You really can't top it for the price!

Surpassed expectations!

  • 5 of 5

The rental was perfect. Very nice accommodations! Had everything we needed. Was clean, lots of room. The staff went out of the way to help with questions or needs we had. They explained how everything worked from the moment we got there. Very safe, secure building. They always had someone on hand. Perfect location! Right on the beach you could lay at the pool or be beach side. Everything (groceries, great restaurants, shopping, music) all within walking distance. I had never been to Mexico and I would go back here in a min. Lovely!!

Luxury Condo on Private Beach was a Great Experien

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at this Luxury condo on the beach. Everything was in perfect working order and finished exquisitely. The bldg manager Bernice was indispensable at helping us to have a great stay. We had maid service every day, a hair cut, and massages. It was one of our favorite beach vacations. I recommend the property without reservation. I'm from San Francisco and travel for work a lot.

Beautiful condo on the beach in PV

  • 5 of 5

Very much enjoyed our stay. Condo was clean and well equipped. Master bedroom was huge. Right on the beach, nice pool, close to downtown. Great service by the staff. Quiet location except for a nearby bar that has live music on weekends. Would definitely make a return stay.

Agradable experiencia !!!

  • 4 of 5

Es la primera vez que realizo una renta vacacional por medio de homeaway, teníamos nuestras dudas, pero la verdad es que supero nuestras expectativas !! El departamento muy bonito, limpio y bien equipado, la ubicación no pudo estar mejor para nosotros, el personal muy agradable y amable en especial Berenice y Don Felipe muy agradecidos con ellos por sus atenciones. Definitivamente es un lugar que vamos a recomendar ampliamente y seguiremos en contacto para futuras ocasiones.

Muchas gracias Paulette por tu atención para concretar la renta.

Located on Camarones Beach 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 of 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.

This boutique beach front Mexican style building offers a total of eight units. This unit has traditional Mexican finishes and offer Mountain and beach front views. Puerta al Mar also offers elevator service, swimming pool, jacuzzi, outdoor bar, direct beach access, covered parking with attendant, and 24 hour security.
