About this listing
This is a large flat with two sleeping areas and two bathrooms. Private terrace with foldable chairs and table to enjoy the beautiful sunsets.
Owners live upstairs and you will have this whole floor for your enjoyement.
A complete large studio with 2 sleeping areas, kitchen, living & dining area, and 2 bathrooms.
This large studio is on the lower floor of a 3 story building and has independent access with a balcony where you´ll be able to enjoy the sunsets and amaizing views of the ocean and city.
This studio is the lower floor from a 3 story house, that is separated from the rest of the house.
Its own by a mexican family that lives in the upper part of the house.
The studio is a fully functional unit with kitchen, 1 full bathroom, and a large sleeping area. Unit also has a type of mezzanine that has an extra bathroom and extra sleeping area.
You can enjoy city and bay views from the living room and dinnig area, enjoy amaizing sunsets, or just go down to the Malecon which is 4 blocks away to go and walk, enjoy a coffe o just to have fun.
The beach is also 4 blocks away, and buses can take you anywhere from here, but the idea is to be able to walk to all the places that downtown has to offer.
The apartment is modest decorated, nothing fancy, or espectacular, but is a great place for a good price if your intentions are to spend the winter here in Town.
And for a couple is perfect, but if you have the unexpected friends coming over for a weekend, you can easily acomodate them for maximun of 5 people in total.
The hill can be exausting to climb, but the view is worth it, if you have problems with climbing steps or a hill, then this will not be your choice.

Wonderful location in great family neighborhood. Sergio and his sister Beatrice are muy amable (very kind). The space is an airy apartment with its own entrance, and equipped with everything. Very sweet, indeed.
People with limited mobility need to know that the hill going up to the house is STEEP, and there are steps leading up to the house, but if you take it easy, not bad, and you could work it into your fitness routine if you walked at a faster pace.
Location is within a few blocks of many restaurants, the malecon, and, if you wanted to cook, a large supermarket. We would be happy to stay there again
We had a great time staying at Sergio's apartment and exploring the PV area. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. As everyone else has mentioned it is a little hike to get to, but perfect for those who like to get off the beaten path.
We found a great restaurant close by called Puntas Burros (donkey point). Great traditional Mexican food at a great price.
Thanks for having us Sergio!
Overall, my PV experience including this place, was excellent. People are friendly and are not afraid to get to know you. I stayed alone in this flat for a week with my chihuahua. If you are worried about this place not having A/C, don't worry - the ceiling fan is SO effective you are kept cool at all times (just turn it off when you go out) and the place never really heats up (seriously).
When I first arrived, I didn't see anyone for the first few minutes so I freaked out a little but eventually I got my keys from lady upstairs and settled down - Sergio came by within the hour or so and welcomed me. Don't freak out if you are not greeted the moment you arrive! Everyone has jobs so be understanding!
This place is within walking distance to the "fun" part of PV and yet just shy away from the loud "romantic" zone (which is why I picked this place). You are two blocks away from a beautiful church and four blocks from the nearest beach. You can walk, everywhere with comfort.
Word of warning: as Sergio mentions, to get to this place, it's a bit of a hike but ONLY for the last block (or half a block/corner really). I LOVED it for the short week stay because I didn't miss my gym so much. You have access to grocery stores, pharmacy, restaurants, everything you'd need within walking distance. I did not have to take a cab once (except for the last day to get my luggage & to airport). They invited me upstairs one night to chat, they offered me tamarind water (they have tamarind tree accessible from their balcony!) which was amazingly refreshing!
This place is a steal if you are fit or even looking to stay fit while you are on your vacation. Even for those who are not so fit, it's not so bad but if you have horrible arthritis, do stay away, haha. Place is pretty much exactly as described, nothing fancy but everything you need to get by. I actually couldn't find forks and spoons but that wasn't a problem because a meal here costs around $3-5 unless you go to a really nice restaurant which then you can pay up to $50. I just had drinkable yogurts and fruit for breakfast. I loved my first PV experience and would definitely return in the future.
Sergio was so welcoming and accommodating. We had some delays in getting to Puerto Vallarta and Sergio happily changed his schedule to allow to check-in at a different time than we originally planned!
The views from the apartment were as he said, lovely view of the sea right over the Malecon. I also loved the neighbourhood and could sit on the balcony a feel private, but still watch al the goings on and feel like I was a part of the neighbourhood. The small convenience store just down the street was a great place to grab a few supplies and hang out with the locals at the top of the hill.
The space was comfortable and clean and had everything I needed to make some food, and Sergio provided the best coffee for me to make at home too! The bed was super comfortable and I felt right at home and slept like a baby.
Sergio made my stay extra special by taking me on some of his missions around the city and introduced me to his awesome neighbours.
I would stay here again for sure, and I think I'm going to plan on it!

Staying at Sergio's apartment was a wonderful experience. The apartment itself is beautiful - tastefully decorated, breezy, and comfortable - with everything a person could need to have a great stay. The neighborhood is vibrant and located atop a hill that affords breathtaking views of the ocean and the city below. Furthermore, Sergio and his family are gracious, generous hosts, who did everything to ensure we had what we needed and enjoyed our time in Vallarta. We had a great holiday in PV and much of that was due to how happy we were with Sergio's apartment. We would most certainly book with Sergio again and can't wait to visit Vallarta in the future. Many thanks!!!
Sergio is a very friendly and accomodating host. He was so on top of everything even before I arrived. His communication is excellent and he always made sure I was taken care of. Great appartment, my girl friend and I stayed here and we had no issues.
