About this listing
Two bedroom, 1.25 bath end-unit condo which is about a block from the Playa Los Muertos in the southern part of the old town section of Puerto Vallarta. The condo has a large private patio with panoramic views of the ocean.
Because this unit is an end-unit, it has additional views to the north of the city.
It has two bedrooms with queen size beds in each room. The bathroom has a shower, toilet, sink, and mirror. The master bedroom has its own private sink and mirror. There is a kitchen with oven, range, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, and cookware. The living room has cable TV, a DVD player, and a sofa-bed.
It sleeps 4 people comfortably in the two bedrooms, and can accommodate an additional person or two on the sofa-bed in the living room.
We are in a quiet part of the Zona Romantica, yet only about a block from the popular Los Muertos beach and the associated shopping/dining. The popular Malecón is about a 5 minute walk away.
This condo can be combined with our other condo and become a 4 bedroom 2 kitchen condo that sleeps 8-12 people.
Besides our large private patio, guests have access to the complex's huge public deck and its swimming pool. It is a great way of meeting other visitors and residents of the complex.
Interaction with Guests
We have a local property manager (Alicia) who will greet you when you arrive and be available if you run into any issues or have any questions. You can also contact us on the cell phone.
While the neighborhood is quiet, it is only a block or two from busier areas for shopping, (email hidden) or restaurant, or even late night clubbing.
The primary method of getting around is via taxi. They are readily available and fairly economical within the local area. In addition, Puerto Vallarta has a public bus service that is convenient.
Other Things to Note
Besides being close to the beach, we are close to popular places such as Blue Chairs, Garbo, and the Palm. We highly recommend Bistro Teresa which is in the next building for fine dining.
Our normal checkin time is 4pm and checkout is 11am, but we can be flexible if notified in advance. It depends on whether there are other reservations the same day.
Our housekeeper Elly normally arrives on Tuesdays and Saturdays around 11am and cleans between 11am and 2pm. She washes the linens, towels, mops, and cleans the counters very thoroughly. The day can vary based on other arrivals/departures.
We allow pets as long as they are quiet and won't disturb the neighbors. Smoking is allowed, but we prefer it occur outdoors on the private patio out of respect for the future guests.
Bill was a great host. We met with his property manager as arranged the day we arrived, the unit is faithfully represented by his pictures, and best of all the location of the unit is perfect. Right in the heart of everything and only a ten minute walk down to the beach, and equally close to numerous restaurants. Large private deck with views of the ocean and city was amazing.
Bill was very good at sending us information ahead of our visit. Since we were in Mexico, he arranges for a property manager to meet guests, show them around and answer any questions. He gives some good tips on visiting Vallarta. The views from this apartment are fantastic. It would be easy as a first timer to get an apartment with views only of the street or place next door. There were, however, as he states many steps up and we did opt for a cab several times. The apartment was very bright and clean. The area where the apartment is also is great if you want to feel more like being in Mexico and not isolated from restaurants and shops.
Beautiful place to stay. Nice layout. Had problems with the refrigerator. Place bottles on door shelf and rail couldn't hold the weight. Placed cans of diet coke there. Also same problem. Alicia was very helpful. Maid service good. Shower door didn't close all the way and leaked out to the bathroom floor. Great place. Would recommend it to others.
Bill was great - he was very attentive and thoughtful. Gaining entry into the place was easy and went smoothly. The place was very clean and kept that way by maid visits. The terrace and its view was as amazing beautiful as the pictures promised, and the location was excellent Furnishings were sufficient (albeit a little bit dated).
Bill was an extremely attentive host from the beginning of my first AirBnB experience all the way through to the end. Accommodations were exactly as advertised, minus a bit of trouble with WiFi that is likely more due to spotty coverage in Mexico in general than to Bill's service, but he nevertheless made every effort to address the problem immediately during our trip.
The location was ideal - a short walk to Blue Chairs and an invigorating climb back to our private balcony with stunning views. Property manager Alicia was perfectly lovely and as helpful as could be.
While I wouldn't call the accommodations luxurious, they were perfect in every way for our trip. Everything we needed and nothing we didn't. A fabulous launching pad for a fabulous PV escape. Muchas gracias, Bill!
We just returned from a great vacation stay at Bill's condo. The location is perfect and the views are breathtaking. The condo is an easy walk to the blue chairs area and all the awesome bars and restaurants in town. Bill was great, very responsive and the arrival instructions were easy to follow. Alicia, was great and super helpful. She greeted us on the day we arrived and was there on the day we departed and even arranged for a cab to the airport. There were four of us and the condo worked well for our group. We are already planning next year's trip!

About the Host, Bill
Engineer for a startup software company in Southern California. My partner and I have been visiting Puerto Vallarta for over a decade and fell in love with the old town area. We decided to purchase a condo for us to stay in and to rent out when we aren't visiting. We hope you enjoy our condo and Puerto Vallarta as much as we do.
