We had a wonderful experience from the very beginning renting this Los Veneros apt. from Saul. I would reiterate what the previous reviewer mentioned to say that it matches or exceeds the expectations set by the beautiful pictures and description posted in the listing. We committed to an 8 night stay and from beginning to end Saul and the team at Los Veneros, consisting of Armando and Juan, made us feel very welcome with quick and thorough replies to emails and requests.
The apt is located in a full service resort community, which provided us a great sense of security and convenience, especially since we had two small children with us. We requested a pack & play and two high chairs ($10/day each) for the kids and they were there waiting for us when we arrived in two cars. Upon arrival, Juan greeted us and gave us an orientation. He was our primary contact for any immediate needs and arranged assistance for all requests we had, from instructions on using the stereo to replacing a missing shower head in one of the bathrooms.
The unit itself is well appointed with tastefully selected furnishings that are elegant and yet provide the unit a great sense of personality and comfort. Being a architect and builder myself, I can honestly say I was impressed with the quality of construction of the building as well. The community is equally impressive with no less than 4 pools, a gorgeous sandy beach, a restaurant steps away, and a fitness center. We were close enough to Punta Mita to make day trips there and to make it a departure point to the Marietas Islands. It is also close enough to downtown PV to have dinner there and drive back aftewards. As the owner suggests, a rental car is recommended if day trips are desired. However, I could have easily enjoyed the entire trip inside the grounds.
In summary, everything from the location (you can watch whales from the balcony!) to ambiance and the house interior was a success. Saul was a great host as well and prepared the Veneros administration for our stay very well, so the service from check in onward was always very smooth and welcoming. It all made the trip a very memorable one for us and we would love to visit again.
The apartment is stunning! Right on the ocean and the beach is very unpopulated which was blissful to us. The space is much better than the pictures- truly belongs in a Vernada magazine spread. Has full glass walls that open to the ocean. Bliss! and each bedroom is stunning with its own shower. The third bedroom with the twin beds isn't a great view but nice for kids. There was noise form the beach club (music) but they graciously turned it down after saul reported it. Everything was perfect!!
Armando, the concierge, is so accommodating. The only downfall is the limited menu at the beach club on site. We did find a few great places to eat though (si senor, si sushi and a wonderful hut down the beach to the left about a mile that cooks fresh catch- amazing!)
