Originally from Southern California. Have lived in Puerto Vallarta for seven years. I love AirBNB. Had great experiences. I have several listings on the site and would enjoy the opportunity to host you here in paradise.

Where do I start? Gary was a wonderfully welcoming, communicative, and accommodating host. He made sure we were comfortable, gave us plenty of great local recommendations for bars, restaurants, and activities, helped organize transportation when needed with excellent taxi drivers, and had a maid service come during our stay. It was an absolute pleasure meeting him!
As for the place. The pictures do not do the place justice. The house is open, comfortable, and in a great location. We would start our day off with cooking breakfast in the well-equipped, beautiful kitchen, then hang by the private pool before heading to the beach which is a very short walk down some stairs. The location was ideal for the beach and going to the local bars and restaurants.
This house comfortably fit 5 of us and we would most definitely come back! Thanks Gary!
Gary was always, always available to handle any questions or provide advise on taxi's, food, trips, etc. He was good at responding via phone, texting, or emails! Gary really wants the folks who stay to have a good memory of their stay in Puerto Vallarta. Gary is very knowledgeable of not only PV, but other areas in Mexico.
We stayed here for 10 days and had a very nice time!
This unit had plenty of room. Security was very good with three dead bolt locked doors once you entered the main unit. We always felt safe. Every appliance worked well. Cable was sufficient, as we didn't watch much tv while in PV. The showers have lower water pressure than what we have back home, but they worked ok. We were a bit disappointed, as the wifi only worked in the main kitchen/family room area, and not in the back bedrooms or on the rooftop terrace. Gary did try to assist, but the wifi strength was just not enough to reach to the rooftop. But we made it work on top, as we brought plenty of paperback books to read!
The view from the private rooftop is spectacular!! We took so many pictures of the area, and many beautiful sunset pictures! We live in a quiet neighborhood, so the noise was much louder off this street than what we expected. The street below is heavily traveled at all hours. So if noise bothers you, be sure to bring a sound machine for sleeping! There are several good restaurants within 1 or 2 blocks. El Brujo had great food and great margaritas. Chenan2 is new and also has very good food. Basilio Badillo has a variety of shops, restaurants, street food vendors - for us the location was great! Thanks Gary for being such a super Host!
Staff was great as always and everything exactly as represented and hi quality. This is located perfectly in the best area. Thanks Gary and team!
Thanks Steven. Appreciate it! Hope to have you return again!
Puerto Vallarta is a regular destination for us and we have stayed in one of Gary's apartments several times before. Each one is just a short walk to Los Muertos Playa, in the heart of the Zona Romantica. This time, Gary offered us an upgrade to a larger apartment and we accepted! The apartment has a large living room and well equiped kitchen, a large bedroom with king bed and large closet, and a quiet balcony in the back. The bathroom has a nice large shower and plenty of hot water. The apartment is bright and airy, with ceiling fans in every room. The kitchen is suitable for cooking simple meals although, with so many great cafes nearby, we don't cook too often! Puerto Vallarta is our place to come when we need some time to do research, think, write, and just live life. Life in PV is relaxed, easy, urban, and conducive to clear thoughts. Gary is a great host! We'll undoubtedly return!
Amazing space in the Romantic Zone of Puertor Vallarta. The penthouse of a new building, with everything you could want. The elevator doors open directly into your unit (with electronic keys to insure that only you and your guests have access to that floor!). Three huge bedrooms, each with a large Jacuzzi tub, large living room, full kitchen, two balconies facing the ocean, a rooftop pool and deck area...the amenities of the place make this a perfect choice for a small group of people. Much more comfortable than a hotel, with room to stretch out and relax....and you are within walking distance of everything that the historic older part of Puerto Vallarta has to offer. The host, Gary, met us after we arrived, gave us the keys and showed us around the unit and left us to enjoy our stay, making sure we had his contact information for anything that was needed. A five-star stay, the ONLY bad part of this entire trip was when we had to pack up and leave to go home! Will definitely stay here again, and recommend it to any friends who are travelling to this magical city!
This penthouse is fantastic with its high ceilings and great cross breeze for natural cooling (if you want). It is beautiful inside, very clean, quiet and well maintained complex with large BBQ kitchen and pool on the roof. There were two of us and we had tons of room - this place can easily hold six people - much larger than the pictures show. The location could not be better - you are in the middle of everything. The property manager and cleaning lady were helpful and efficient. Gary was easy to reach and everything went smoothly. Thanks for the great vacation!
Gary was very easy to deal with and the place was great. It's HUGE! There are 3 massive bedrooms spread out across an entire floor of the building, so there's plenty of space and privacy. The staff of the building is super nice and helpful. The stock the fridge with beer (they charge you a minimal price for each on you drink, totally worth it and easier than going to the store). The location is perfect, about equal walking distance to Los Muertos in one direction and all of the restaurants and bars in the other direction.
Very nice set-up and location relative to both beach (regular and gay section) and the clubs and restaus. Gary is super-responsive and an excellent host. And I loved the king bed!
This shouldn't be a big issue but if you are bringing work with you, the internet connection can be a little off at certain times of the day - afternoon. Just in case, your life depends on it, haha :D
My experience was worry free, Gary made everything a no brainer, he was better than all my expectations. The location was impeccable , making my excursions a hop , skip and a jump to anywhere I wanted to be. I was very blessed to have someone like Gary and words can't thank him worthy enough to describe his attentiveness to my every need. Thank you Gary.
Gary es Excelente huésped. Mantuvo limpio y cuido el departamento como suyo. Lo recomiendo totalmente.
Gary is just the perfect tenant. Discrete, clean and and an excellent person. Would very gladly host him again or live one of his properties as it must be beautifully decorated and clean.
Gary was a great guest!, from the moment he inquired about the condo he seemed like such a cool person, unfortunately we never met face to face but every time we emailed him he would respond promptly, he said he loved our condo so we hope to have him stay again in the near future!
This was the second time I have had the pleasure of hosting Gary, and as always he is a wonderful guest. Keeps the place clean & quiet. What more could you ask for. I hope to see Gary again as I continue to improve my condo and make my guests more comfortable.
Thanks Eric I love the place.
Gary, excelente huésped , muy amable y respetuoso
Gary es bienvenido siempre en mi departamento,
Great guest, Welcome back anytime, I would highly recommend him.
