Paradise on Earth,
What a travel writer has to say about penthouse,

I arrived early in the morning while the light was still soft and mellow, falling gently on the mountains which surround Vallarta like a guarding fortress. When I stepped off the bus I still could not see the ocean, but suddenly, for a second or two, it felt like home. It was warm, the air was salty and I felt a pleasant breeze on my skin that reminded me of the Croatian summer wind we call Maestral. Though there were plenty of cabs waiting in front of the station, I caught a city bus which took me to my destination. The Penthouse Dolphin Dreams is a beautiful two floor penthouse situated in the heart of Nuevo Vallarta – a residential resort community about twenty minutes north of Puerto Vallarta, in the center point of the Banderas Bay.

The owner of the property was waiting for me when I arrived. From the first moment he made me feel very welcome and relaxed. Dana is an interesting man, who has traveled the world and lived throughout the United Kingdom. Eight years ago he decided to make his home here in what he calls, “Paradise on Earth.” Even though he has adapted easily to this Mexican beach style of life, learning to surf and paddle board almost every day, he is still a typical English gentleman with a recognizable English sense of humor. After a few minutes in his company, I realized that those stereotypes about cold, distanced and reserved islanders definitely don’t apply to him. As we were sitting in his large first floor open living room having a chat, I observed a whole variety of exotic birds.

For the first time in my life I saw pelicans sailing through the sky in perfect formation like a fleet of army planes. Later I learned that due to its geographical position, this area is a perfect location for bird watching as it is home to nearly 350 species in varied ecosystems and habitats. Dana informed me that this area used to be a swamp, which explains its rich fauna.

After refreshing drinks and short informative chat, I decided to discover more about this amazing penthouse – my home during the next ten days. The position of the apartment is perfect, occupying the top two floors of the building which looms over Vallarta’s famous Dolphin Adventure Park. Most of the first level is a spacious living room extending outward to a terrace for its entire length. It provides a spectacular open view to the canals, jungle plants, blue mountain outlines and beautiful sailboats resting quietly on the still water. Sitting there, I had a feeling of calm stillness as if I were contemplating someplace far away from civilization. The living room is connected to a functional, well equipped kitchen, making this whole space even more cavernous and commodious.

The design of the first level as a whole represents a modern and contemporary approach to style. A brave contrast of colors is apparent between the large white leather couch and the deep red walls. The earthy brown kitchen is aptly chosen to appease and balance those contrasts.

One of my favorite things – a small island across from the stove – is ideal for hanging around with friends and/or group cooking. Situated at the end of the hall are two cozy bedrooms with double beds. Painted in sky blue, with their own bathrooms and small balconies, they provide you with a beautiful southern view of tropical gardens dominated by tall, elegant palms.

Although I did not see half of it, I was already very excited about this place and eager to discover what was waiting for me on the higher level. We climbed the spiral, wooden stairs leading to the penthouse. I must say I was impressed with what I saw! The living space is almost completely organized on a large, wide terrace. The only closed units are the bedroom and bathroom situated on its southern side. This space is really something unique and exceptional. I thought the view from the lower living room was unbeatable, but I was definitely wrong. This was even more stunning. There is nothing above you but a clear blue sky. You can see the whole panoramic view covering 280 degrees.

The biggest asset of this apartment’s orientation is the possibility of viewing an extraordinary attraction. Every day, just under your terrace, you can observe dolphins surfacing or watch a lions playing in the water or lying on the rocks enjoying the sun. I can’t explain how happy and excited this made me feel; strong memories of my early childhood daydreaming about swimming with dolphins in the vast ocean. Everything was just magical! Even though this space is unquestionably decorated as modern and contemporary, it has that rustic touch with its selection of natural materials and decorative objects like wall lamps and handcrafted articles. The roof of the terrace, supported by rugged wooden pilings and dried palm leaves, creates an exotic and dreamy atmosphere. This area is all about hedonism: you can cook outside in the small kitchen, watch herons at night while lying in the big hot tub or take a nap on the massive, wooden hanging bed in the shadow of palm leaves.

The vision of Nuevo Vallarta as a luxury and spacious hotel zone was a project initiated by the federal government over ten years ago. Now, Nuevo Vallarta is a residence for luxury villas and estates with tropical gardens lining the ocean canals, each with its own private docking pier.

First of all, their new governor is pro-tourism and investment, facilitating federal-state transactions. The area consistently ranks in the top five vacation destinations in the country. Investment opportunities, both national and international, continue to expand over time.
Mexico’s newest destination, Riviera Nayarit, stretches along 192 miles of pristine Pacific coast framed by the majestic Sierra Madre Mountains just ten minutes north of accessible Puerto Vallarta International Airport. The region extends along the entire coast of the Pacific state of Nayarit including the resorts of Nuevo Vallarta, the historic colonial town of San Blas, exclusive Punta Mita, picturesque fishing villages, miles of serene beaches and spectacular Banderas Bay. Riviera Nayarit offers countless activities, such as PGA golf courses,luxury spas, whale watching, turtle release, zip lining, surfing, bird watching, international cuisine, and the local artwork from the traditional Huichol tribe. This year, as a testament to Riviera Nayarit’s luxury offerings, the destination garnered two impressive awards: the top spot for “Best Luxury Beach Destination in Mexico” from Travelocity’s Battle of the Destinations III and the “Best Destination Crystal Apple Award” by Apple Vacations.
