This condo has been repainted, upgraded and redecorated, along with new a/c unit.. extended countertop in kitchen and new woodwork (June 2011)
Villa Blanca features unique and distinctive architecture and an outstanding location by Los Muertos Beach in Old Town Vallarta.
Designed by Mexican architect Diego Mendez de las Penas, this one-of-a-kind building offers unobstructed front row seats to some of the world's most amazing sunsets, viewed from the roof-top terrace of an architectural masterpiece. You will be inspired - and just imagine... from the privacy of your own suite... the sounds of the ocean... tropical flowers... awesome views.
We also have a one bedroom suite available.
This quaint, 11-unit condominium complex is, architecturally, the most interesting looking building in the Olas Altas area. Villa Blanca is located one block off the popular beach, Playa Los Muertos on the south side of Puerto Vallarta - a very safe and friendly neighbourhood.
In the morning as the sun rises it reveals the water and mountains beyond. In the evening, gorgeous sunsets signal the end of the day and the start of Mexican night life!
Along with spectacular scenery and outdoor activities, one reason Los Muertos Beach is so popular is its close proximity to the city of Puerto Vallarta, with its blend of traditional "Old Mexico" charm and modern amenities. Cobblestone streets and old Spanish-style and red tile roof buildings with colorful flowers combine with first-class hotels and restaurants, upscale shops, art galleries, and an exciting nightlife. Villa Blanca is an easy walk - yet on a private street which is great for a peaceful night's sleep.
Take the stairs to the beach - you are in the ocean in about three minutes!

This apartment rules! There were 4 adults and a baby and we had plenty of room. The open air kitchen and living room was awesome. I highly recommend.
The condo is beautiful. It is well furnished and large with views of the ocean. The beds are comfortable. We were well cared for by staff.
The neighborhood is all condos on a hill. There is a little store and many restaurants within a few blocks down the hill.
The only concern was very loud construction noise (drilling) that went on from 9-6 every day.
The pool is tiny.
Villa Blanca is in a great location, close to restaurants, Los Muertos Beach and lounges and entertainment. The open air concept was a great way to enjoy the outdoors at the condo and the panoramic view, even if the weather is inclement. The staff was helpful and responsive to anything that came up (like a burnt out light). The beds were good and the wifi worked perfectly.
There is a jackhammering project at a nearby property that is really loud - up to 10 hours a day, six days a week. Our only other issue was that there was limited hot water supply. Considering there are two showers in the condo, there's really only enough hot water for one shower.
There were four of us (two couples) staying at the Funky 2 bdrm condo. We loved the location since it was just steps away from the beach, the boardwalk, and other activities. The open air living area was fantastic and the condo is clean and very well equipped. I would recommend this condo if you plan on being out and about more than hanging out at the condo. If you are coming for peace and quiet, look else where because during the day you have construction noise from nearby build sites and at night you can hear the music from the nearby clubs until way past 10:00 pm.
For us, since we were out most of the time, the noise wasn't that big of an issue.
Truth in advertising: it is funky and in a good way. There were a few issues upon arrival but the manager Jose took care of them pronto. Youll love the brisas and sound of the ocean at night. The street is a bit noisy in the morning, but I didnt care too much. Im afraid I may have made more noise on the balcony at night. Great access to blue chairs and the beach and everything zona romantica has to offer. I would recommend it if you are looking to enjoy PV and you are not a light sleeper (although it is surprisingly peaceful at night). Decir is funky indeed and very PV y MX ie read beautiful and well....funky.
We had an amazing time at Sarah's beautiful two bedroom apartment overlooking the ocean. The upside is you can hear the waves from the ocean only a block away. The downside is the ridiculously loud, and bad, music coming from the beach clubs only a block away (ends around 10 PM). The apartment is centrally located and walkable to most anything.
There was a small problem with the reservations when we got there, but everyone was super nice about it. However, I can see it being a problem for someone that wasn't on an international calling plan.
Overall you will have a great time, as long as you are aware/prepared for the obnoxious music.

About the Host, Sarah Jane
I am a Canadian, living in Panama for 9 years, and I LOVE hosting fellow travelers from all over the globe! In fact, it's my second favourite thing to do.. that is, after traveling the globe myself (and I use airbnb exclusively for my solo travels - you just meet the most interesting people and wherever you go, you are "home"!)
My Panama by owner portfolio includes: fully equipped apartments in the 2 best areas of Panama City, Charming fully equipped casitas (with kitchens) on my private property 5 min walk the beach in Coronado (about 1 1/4 hour from Panama City), a brand new 2 bedroom Coronado Golf Condo located on our famous Tom Fazio golf course in Coronado, and 2 beachfront studios with kitchenettes and the best amenities, TRUE BEACHFRONT in Coronado.
I know how expensive traveling can be. I keep my rates reasonable so you can make the most out of your trip and have a cozy, personal home base." Excellent hospitality and great value for the money" are comments I receive regularly.
Interested in other services? I am also a Buyer's Consultant with a reputable REAL ESTATE company in the Coronado Area. I have helped many people realize their retirement, relocation and investment dreams, and I have wonderful contacts in just about any field you can think of. I am happy to help you with everything Panama!
I started (with a dream, a prayer and a loan from a friend! ) a property management company in Whistler in the 90's and owned / operated Whistler Peak Properties, managing 85 high end ski in/out condos and townhomes, along with my wonderful team. After selling my company in 2001 I traveled SE Asia for 2 years, then moved south and put my experience and expertise to work in Mexico and now Panama. I have renovated all my properties and have learned so many interesting and valuable lessons, about the countries , the people and their unique cultures. I really love living in Latin America.
Personally, I am friendly, easy going, spontaneous and my friends compliment me on my spirit. I love a good adventure and my greatest passion is travel. I am curious and interested in other cultures and strive to learn languages and get to know the locals. I have the "wanderlust gene", as I embreace movement, change and adventure. Travel.. ahhhhhh, In essence, it inspires me....
I'm British Born, brought up in B.C. Canada (notice I didn't say "grew up" haha). and have had the pleasure and priveledge of adopting other countries (and families!) along the way. I've been an expat for 13 years, and am still in my 40's. I tell you this, because anyone can do it, no matter what your age or status. ! I believe in a "pay it forward" and am happy to help anyone make their dreams a reality if the goal is to make that move overseas. If the goal is just to have a great holiday and getaway, well.. that, of course is our specialty!
My business , and passion is real estate investing, renovating and marketing / renting vacation rentals in Panama City and country areas, as well as Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I sincerely believe in a high level of service and my motto is "Everyone deserves a world class greeting". I also make a huge effort to keep my properties current, constantly renovating / upgrading items and furnishings. I always appreciate guest feedback (preferably directly and personally) if improvements need to be made and I am always open to suggestions. Most importantly, I and my team believe in sincere service and true hospitality!
Because of my love for travel, Panama has proven to be a fantastic hub, and I've visited almost every Central and South American country with only a couple more countries left on the bucket list.
I hope you will come and visit us in Panama!
I have had the BEST experience with airbnb.. first as a renter, then host, now both! I have used this site extensively in my travels to the Middle East, India, Bali, Thailand, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand and Europe as a guest, and even more extensively as a host.
Please contact me for the best local experience.
Bienvenidos a Panama y Mexico, Sarita (aka Panama Sarah)
