My family and I had the most amazing time at Ken's place. The condo is so much more than the pictures show. Very specious and bright, comfortable, with beautiful views and well taken care of.
The resort like amenities made our vacation specially what we were looking for, the little ones had a blast spending the whole day in the many pools and the resort is so big it often felt like we had a private pool.
There's a beautiful beach you can enjoy as well and the snacks and service at the beachfront restaurant were delicious and affordable!
I recommend highly Ken's place and my family and I can't wait to come back, we have talked about making this our yearly family vacation!
Thanks Ken and see you soon!
Punta Esmeralda is a beautiful, well built, high-end condo complex where all the attendants are friendly and extremely helpful. However, Ken's unit was woefully lacking in essential items. Since the cleaning lady was just leaving as we arrived, I can only assume that this is the accepted practice. For a 4 bathroom unit to have only a half roll of TP throughout, no soaps of any kind, a barbecue grill left full of ashes, incorrect phone numbers to contact the property manager....... well, this is not at all in tune with the overall quality of the complex. There were other problems with the mechanical aspects of the unit. While it is an elegant condo unit, it really needs to be maintained with more attention. To Ken's credit, after I explained about the lack of items, he had the cleaning lady return the next day with a small bag of essentials, but we had already taken a cab to Mega after we arrived to stock up. Note that there is no provision for purchasing such items inside the complex. Ken was responsive when I contacted him but I am writing this so that the next guests will have an experience that this rental unit is capable of providing.
Thank you for your feedback, Ned. Not having the essential items is not an acceptable practice for our unit and is not normal. This has been addressed with our cleaning lady. Thank you for emailing me as soon as you got in and realized we were missing items. As you mention I did try and fix this problem as soon as possible, but you had already made your grocery run, which I completely understand. I agree with you that our unit and complex are very high end and beautiful, however once in a great (see other reviews) while trying to manage a Mexican property and guests we don't get to personally meet from the United States is sometimes difficult. I again apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your feedback so that future guests do not have the same issues.
Definitivamente ha sido una experiencia maravillosa el hospedarnos en el depto de Ken. El es una persona muy atenta y agradable y el lugar es precioso! El departamento es muy amplio y cómodo, al igual que las instalaciones, todo el personal que allí labora es muy gentil y respetuoso, sin duda alguna supero mis expectativas
Excelente departamento, superó las expectativas de nosotros al llegar una gran experiencia, felicidades
Ken is very kind and accommodating- can't wait to vacation there next year!
Excelente lugar! El departamento es inmensamente amplio,ademas que esta ubicado justo enmedio de las dos mayores atracciones(islas marietas y puerto vallarta)como a 20 mnts de las dos.El complejo tiene siete picinas super limpias todas,y ademas todo esta super organizado con vigilancia.Muchas gracias a ken por todo,fue un verdadero anfitrion.
This place was way better than what we expected. We will definitely go back.
About the Host, Ken
My wife and I live in beautiful Denver, Colorado with 3 little ones under the age of 5. We purchased our condo outside Puerto Vallarta when we didn't have children and were much more capable of international travel! We still love to visit PV and go to our condo, but it is very difficult with 3 young children, which is why we are now trying to rent it out as much as possible.
Great surf town with lots of cute shops, great restaurants and vibrant people. Fun place to visit for a day on the beach!Sayulita NAY
A smaller surf town with great body surfing waves. There is a sea turtle sanctuary here that releases baby sea turtles right on the beach in evening at dusk during the high season (Nov/Dec-April).San Francisco NAY
