There is no location in Puerto Vallarta that comes close to Playas Gemelas. It is the most secluded and clean of all the beach areas. The owner is a long-time environmentalist who is concerned about the cleanliness of the ocean and beaches, and actively works to that end. Her 11th floor location not only has a stunning view, but is protected from road noise by it's location in the center of the tower. All pools are kept sparkling, the grounds are a tropical park, security is absolute. Daily lunches at the neighboring palapa restaurant are a treat.

We find the local bus to town fun and convenient, and if our return from a Puerto Vallarta restaurant (many international choices) is late, taxis are inexpensive and readily available. Galleries are varied and interesting for those who find they enjoy contemporary Mexican artists.
Recommended for:  Age 55+, Tourists without a Car, Families with Young Children, Romantic Getaway
Owner's Response: I agree that there is no better beach and spectacular view than Playas Gemelas Beach. All the locals have always felt that this beach is the best in PV. Also, it is centrally located on the bus route to a 10 min. ride to Old Town Puerto Vallarta.
The Palapa Restaurant on the beach has outstanding fish dishes, spectacular ambiance, and reasonble prices as $10.00 a dinner.

What a wonderful place to visit!

What a wonderful place to rest and relax! From the moment that you open the door to Irene's Nirvana, you are captivated by the view, the sound of the ocean, and the bright Mexican motif of the condo. The pictures of the condo and it's location provide you with an accurate depiction of what to expect. However, once you walk through the door, your "Ah,hah" moments begin.
The condo is conveniently located on a beautiful beach and only a short bus ride to "Old Town" in Puerto Vallarta. Don't miss taking the bus...lots to be learned about the warm and friendly people who live and work in the area.
The restaurants in Old Town are not to be missed...Hacienda San Angel, The Riverfront Cafe, La Posta, Ocean Grill, and the many smaller Mexican restaurants all over the area. The food at every restaurant was so delicious!
Irene is a fantastic hostess. She is very knowledgeable about the area and the condo complex. The condo has everything that you might need for your stay. The condo is so bright and cheery, you just smile every time you return. The complex itself is beautifully landscaped. The pools are heated and lovely. Everything is very well maintained. The staff could not be more helpful. They assist with everything from advice on what to do, as well as, the day to day things like beach chairs and umbrellas. We can't wait to return!
Owner's Response: It is so rewarding to receive reviews constantly like the above. I have tried thru the years to preserve the "colonial Mexico" period with colors, antique furniture that is nonexistent anymore due to high labor costs, decorations by Ada Colorina , awarded "The Spirit of Mexico" for her primitve style art.and being mesmerized by the ocean crashing on the rocks below with a long stretch of white sand to the left ,mountain view to the left and across The Bay plus Los Arcos view.The staff is and always has been incredible to assist guests.

Fantastic Views - Great Condo!

Best views in Puerto Vallarta! We saw orcas, dolphins and manta rays - it was spectacular. The condo is in great condition and has all the amenities you could want. King size bed was very nice and extra blankets, towels - seriously everything you could need, cooler for the beach, etc. The kitchen is very well appointed also with everything you could possibly need, lots of dishes/glasses/pots/pans/cutlery, etc. Nice gas stove and having a dishwasher was a nice touch! You get a lot of hot water for the shower which is a great shower - lots of water pressure. Transactions were easy - I hope to rent this condo again next year! (fingers crossed!)
Owner's Response: It is so rewarding to receive great reviews as this one as I do focus on making improvements every time that I am there to add to guest comforts.Yes, the view is unparalleled in Puerto Vallarta with the ocean crashing below on the rocks,,gorgeous maintained gardens to my right and best beach in Puerto Vallarta to my left with mountains surrounding the area. The rainbows over the mountains are always inspiring and the sunsets spectacular.

Perfect vacation!

Your condo is beautiful - the view from the bed in the morning when waking up is breathtaking, and from the balcony while enjoying breakfast is fabulous. We felt very much at home and it all exceeded our expectations.
We enjoyed a perfect mix of activities, relaxation, adventure and making new friends.
The diving & snorkeling was spectacular, crystal clear water and beautiful variety of sea creatures.
We visited the botanical gardens - what a wonderful place - and enjoyed a delicious lunch there.
We kayaked out to Los Arcos and snorkeled there - sadly the water was not a clear as the first time, due to some rain storms, but we had a fantastic time.
We hiked from Boca to Ocean Grill (best Margarita ever - with mint and ginger), and what a beautiful setting. We continued on to Las Animas and found a couple of stunning beaches along the way.
We also got to release baby turtles on 2 evenings, which was a very special time.
The last couple days we enjoyed watching a school of manta rays playing in the surf from the balcony.
We went to town a couple of times and ran into the independence day festivities on our last day what a special ending to a fabulous week. Getting around with the bus was easy and a good experience.
The tortilla soup as well as the fish at the palapa next door were delicious, the setting beautiful, and the service was outstanding.
I am sure we will be back!
What a wonderful place to spend my husbands 50th birthday! Thank you Irene!

Charming Condo in an Idyllic Setting

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 30-May-2013
  • Date of Stay: Dec 2012
I rented this condo from December 20th through January 1st and I could not have been more pleased. As a regular "renter" of vacation property I must say that I was so impressed by the charm and unique folklore of this property. The owner, Irene, has made great effort to give her guests a real taste of Mexico in the condo. It is tastefully decorated with beautiful Mexican artifacts, paintings and murals. In addition, the patio has a beautiful, hand-crafted glass table with chairs that are surronded with potted plants. A real slice of paradise!!!!

This property is very well equipped with everything you need to cook meals and enjoy the splendid views and magnificent beach. May properties have two plates, one cup and not much more but this condo has wine glasses, serving bowls, plenty of pots and pans and all kinds of accessories. You will not be disappointed.

The location is outside of the hustle and bustle of Puerta Vallarta but the bus system is easy, inexpensive and efficient. We took the local bus daily for some type of adventure and did not need to worry about the hassle of a rental car.

I highly recommend this property. It is a beautiful condo in a magnificent setting.
