I am a Puerto Vallarta native, who has 14 years of experience on the Airline industry, and 8 years on the Real Estate industry.
This apartment is beautiful, and Sergio is an amazing host!
I honestly fell in love with this house and the neighborhood, and Sergio and his family are so kind and welcoming. They will give you as much space as you like, but if you have any questions about Vallarta they are available to give you all the inside scoop. All the neighbors greeted me warmly as well. The street isn't exactly quiet, but it's peaceful and very safe, and definitely close to everything.
It's a simple apartment, but absolutely gorgeous. It's very clear that Sergio took the time to make it a home- it is outfitted with everything you need for your stay. When I had several friends staying with me for a weekend we all fit quite comfortably. The hill is no joke, but the view is worth it, and it lends a feeling of satisfaction when you make it up to the deck. There's a small store on the street with beer, tortillas, and the most amazing cheeses from a local farm.
And if you come to PV and fall in love with the city (which very well might happen, it's a beautiful place), Sergio is a real estate agent, so he can help you with that too.
The apartment is very spacious and clean. About 10min walk to the beaches and to main streets of Zona Romantica. The area is very safe. The apartment is very airy and you can see the ocean from the balcony. I definitely would stay there again. Sergio, the host did a great job.
Very nice house, few blocks from Malecon up the hill. Nice views. Although you can hear some noise from the street, we had a very good time there nonetheless. Considering the price - it is the perfect deal for Puerto Vallarta. Sergio was very helphul and friendly. Communication was really excelent! I would be glad to return!
I really enjoyed my stay here. It was a fantastic house with entry of room and a very awesome location. The veranda in the living room with beautiful view was quite fantastic! I would recommend this to others
My boyfriend and I had the best time at Sergio's apartment! It's a great location with a beautiful view and for an unbeatable price. The apartment was exactly as advertised with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Sergio and his family were very hospitable. We were welcomed into their family's Christmas celebration, they even let us have a few hits at the piñata! Overall, I don't think we could have found a better place in downtown Puerto Vallarta!
We have stayed everywhere and all over -- from a 7 star hotel in Dubai to a $3 hostel in Bangkok with paperthin walls and creative businessmaking in the next room over. It is with this breadth of experience that we report that Sergio's apartment is a good deal for the money. I think it is best for a couple or a couple with a child. We had everything we needed and Sergio was a very good host. He gives a good disclaimer on the hill but unless you have an orthopedic issue, you should be able to make it up and down without incident. Without the hill, you would not have the great view. We really liked the location because it is not in the thick of all the tourist business but close enough to walk to it -- just a few blocks down the hill is the start of the Malecon (boardwalk). When we did walk over to the tourist area (Zona Romantica and old town), we were very glad to be staying in this location. The area felt very safe, and there is a small store on the block and they will sell you whatever you need to make a sandwich or breakfast. I would take advantage of Sergio's offer to leave you some food. That was very convenience -- we opted for fruit and beer, which was nice to have on hand. A full service grocery is about 5 blocks away. We also liked the decor, and enjoyed the apartment enough to just hang out there -- didn't feel pressure to get out of there. It felt very private, as well, which we appreciated.
The reservation was canceled 113 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Sergio went out of his way many times during my stay. He attempted to connect with me on a number of occasions to give me an opportunity to use my Spanish and meet people in the area. Unfortunately I was away much of the time. He was happy to purchase things I my behalf so that when I arrived I wouldn't have to worry about finding food.
The week that I arrived was the start of two weeks of holidays. He invited me to have a meal with his family who was visiting. It was a lot of fun.
I am very thankful to have been able to stay in this wonderful apartment and deal with Sergio. I would highly recommend it to anyone!
This apartment was a steal. Huge apartment with a great view over the city and water. Location was great at the north end of the boardwalk but it was up a very steep hill and a bit hard to find. the apartment was furnished with everything we needed, full kitchen, 2 beds, bathroom (curtain door tho), tv, nice decor. Sergio and his family were very helpful and i would defiantly recommend this to others.
