The building is close to everything. A block or so from the beach. 5 minute walk to the best restaurants and 10 minutes to all the bars. It is active and fun during the day but very quiet at night. The waves at night are deafening! It is wonderful! The streets are very safe and the Mexican people here are very friendly. It is a great atmosphere!
Buses are easy to use. Taxis are always parked a block away from the condo. But you will most likely walk everywhere because everything is so central.
To help you understand the layout of he building we do have 2 keyed entries. One in the front is on the main road which is easiest to access by car. This is where you will normally meet the concierge with the keys upon arrival unless you specify the Amapas door. The Amapas door allows quick access to the beach and a nice walk along the cobblestone street to town. The 2 doors are on different levels because the apartment is built into a mountain side. There are 9 levels above the Amapas door and only 3 levels above the front door so it is VERY difficult walk between the 2 doors.
I'm always available by phone, text or email.
Guests will have access to the gym, and the roof top pool, lounge and gas BBQ. The Pool and Gym are open until 10:00pm
Interaction with Guests
As this is a rental condo of ours and I live in Park City, Utah, you will be put in touch with the management of PVRPV they manage a few suites in the building including mine. They will check you in and give you access codes and keys etc! I am always available by phone or email. There is also a building manager Alfredo on site every day except Sunday.
The best thing about the location is the direct access to Los Muertos Beach. Just down a few stairs and you are on the beach. I am also just a 5 min walk to all the restaurants and bars in the Romantic Zone. The location makes it perfect for a combination of View, Quiet at night, and quick access to the beach and old town PV.
Taxis are cheap by USA standards and you can get most anywhere in old town for under $5 with tip. I have always found the drivers very helpful and most speak decent english. To get to the taxi stand exit the Amapas door (level S) and turn right. There is a taxi stand 1 block away. Walking is to the beach and to town along Amapas is easy. If you want to go Bohemian and use the city buses, they are almost free and located either outside the main door on level 4 or walk to the station about 6 blocks away in the center of old town.
Other Things to Note
The building is a modern, sleek contemporary design with only 21 units. Positioned on the ocean side of Hwy 200 with direct access to Amapas street. The building has an elevator, gym, parking, infinity roof top pool w/ amazing views of the bay and roof top lounge area.
1. No Smoking.
2. The A/C is very nice and very quiet and can cool the entire apartment in under 5 min. Please turn off the A/C when away or when sliding doors or windows are open.
3. The marble in the showers and on bathroom counters can stain and etch so please do not leave anything on them such as soaps, or hairspray bottles. Please try to wipe down shower after use.
4. Please dry off before exiting the pool area and no wet bathing suits on furniture.
5. Please respect our neighbors. No parties in the apartment or on the rooftop. Always turn down audio volume if requested.
This place is nothing short of spectacular. Not only is it everything described - but even more. The photos don't do it justice. First off, we had a great, open line of communication with Angel, the local property manager from PVRPV. He was very accommodating with our schedule and helping to secure a ride from the airport and also helpful during our stay.
The place itself is breathtaking. Nothing could have been more impressive than coming down the hallway and making the turn into the main living room and seeing that view. The condo itself is gorgeous. So luxurious. Immaculate. Well designed. Fully stocked. One of our pet peeves at places is too few towels but this place was LOADED with them ;-) The kitchen has everything you'd ever need and more. The bedroom is so cozy. The bed is ultra-comfortable and having the separate bedroom A/C was a blessing. And it's always such a treat to have a washer and dryer in your unit.
What is also a great bonus of this unit, versus others in the building, is the one-flight stair access to the rooftop pool area. It was as if the rooftop pool was part of our own condo because of how convenient it is to the condo. The rear-door access to the stairs that get you to beaches were also a big bonus. So close but also just removed enough to get those spectacular views.
I wouldn't hesitate in the least to stay here again. In fact, now having had a chance to see some of the other units in the building and their layouts/views, I'm convinced that this condo is the single best unit in the entire building. This place was so incredible that I fear staying elsewhere now, worried it would not be as great as I already know this place is.
What an incredible space. What you see is what you get... When I arrived I had a slightly different impression of the layout based on the pictures (like the lofted bed is really just a single in a small lofted alcove) but the apartment made up for it by having 2 places to sleep - one gorgeous bedroom with a super comfy king bed, and an extra loft overlooking the ocean... When everything was added up, the apartment exceeded expectations.
Now if you're not sure if you want to $pring for this place, just do it. You won't have a single regret. We didn't spend a lot of time in the apartment per se, but every minute we spent there we felt like kings overlooking the ocean, and had every amenity we could possibly think to need.
John and his team were professional, responsive, and polite every step of the way. I couldn't be more pleased.
John has a beautiful place and the location with the views is amazing. My friend and I enjoyed 5 nights here and we loved the spaciousness of it all. The climb to the loft is not for the faint of heart, but I bunked up there every night listening to the waves (and I'm 6'3"). Restaurants, groceries, and entertainment are all super close by, and the walk is actually enjoyable after a big meal or a night out drinking. I'd definitely recommend (and come back) here again!
Thanks Gabriel, It was a pleasure meeting you too. I love taking naps up there (in the loft) too. I will definitely let PVRPV know about the rushed departure. They normally pretty good about being on time but sometimes housekeeping shows up too early on the day of departure! It happened to me too. Just so you know, most PV flights arrive in at 1-3 PM and departures from 3-5 PM which is really backward of what is needed for same day arrivals. I know that they did have an arrival that day so they were probably rushed as well but they should have let you know that for your planning purposes. Anyhow, thanks for the great feedback and I hope you come back again soon!
Truly an amazing apartment, amazing view, amazing location. Everything went very smoothly accessing the apartment. The airbnb photos were so beautiful, we wondered whether the real thing would live up to the pictures. It absolutely did.
Easy access to the beach, short walk to excellent restaurants and fun bars (though not too loud in the neighborhood at night). And the rooftop pool and deck were a beautiful, quiet sanctuary.
The only disappointment was that we couldn't quit our jobs and move there permanently. It was a little expensive for our budget but we decided to splurge and go for it-- and I'm so glad we did.
The penthouse is beautiful, clean and exactly as described. The views from penthouse and pool are stunning. I liked the location because of proximity to the beach and easy walk to restaurants, bars, etc yet far enough to not hear the noise.
Everything worked out perfectly. John's instructions were clear, and the property management company he has hired was responsive and very professional - right down to arranging a cab for me and being onsite waiting for me as soon as I arrived. The unit itself is beautiful - spectacular view and a great location. This is just moments to the beach, and a nice stroll down to bars and restaurants. The nicest surprise...a super automatic coffee maker. Just add beans, water, and press! I would highly recommend this space, Thanks John.
