About Owner- Steven Martin

Born in Canada and live there full time. Business owner since 1995. Love to travel and have been to many places around the world.

Owner- Steven Martin purchased this condo in 2008

Why Owner- Steven Martin chose Puerto Vallarta

I had been looking for a location for eventual retirement somewhere in the US or Mexico. I decided on Puerto Vallarta due to the amazing climate almost year round. Once I set foot into Molino de Agua, I knew this was the place for me.

What makes this condo unique

The fact that the suite is 3,200 square feet all on one floor and the complex is on flat land was a huge benefit for my eventual retirement. I didn't want to be climbing stairs when I get into my 70's and 80's. The fact that we are right in town and can walk to just about everything was great. I didn't want to be stuck in the hillside and feeling trapped. Yes, they have great views up there, but not so easy when you just want to grab a cup of coffee and be social.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Steve,

Just wanted to send you a note to thank you very much for the opportunity to stay at your condo again. We had an awesome time as usual. John really needed this holiday and the relaxation, Hopefully he feels recharged. I was kind of worried about him before the trip, this holiday was what he and I both needed. You have a little piece of heaven there but I'm sure you know that. It was nice to see your other condo as well it is also beautiful you guys did a great job. Thanks again Steve for everything we both really appreciate it, I hope you know that.

Fabulous 3BR unit and location -- our whole family enjoyed being here and returned home rejuvenated.

  • 5 of 5

This immaculate, 3 bedroom apartment quickly became our home. Each morning, I would make coffee, and sit on the comfortable veranda furniture to enjoy the coffee, the beach view, the Malecon (Boardwalk), the trees and the pool -- all visible from the balcony/veranda area. It's hard to adequately describe how much room this apartment has, both indoor and outdoor space. Every modern luxury is there in the apartment, and if that weren't enough, the sculpture, paintings and other art spread throughout the home is unique and interesting. Our daughters, 18 and 15, each had their own bedroom, which was a big plus, and our master bedroom was huge.

We loved being on the second floor because we could take the 10-second trip up or down the stairs, or take a short elevator ride when bringing in our luggage or groceries. Also, the trees at that level provided a feeling of seclusion from the Malecon , and allowed a feeling of being amongst the greenery. We also felt close to the pool, and could keep an easy eye on our girls, who would go to lounge at the pool. They enjoyed the "virgin" Pina Coladas, and great good available at the swim-up bar (guacamole, and other great dishes). The employees at the pool, as well as the front gate were all super friendly, and were willing to converse with me in Spanish whenever I wanted to try.

We did not have a car, and didn't need one to get to the 100's of restaurants, shops and sights within walking distance of our building. I took a taxi once to the local Walmart to do another round of grocery shopping, and an open tour vehicle to take us South for a Zip-line adventure. But other than that, we walked everywhere. We also parasailed one afternoon, selecting from among many beach vendors offering this experience.

Right in the same block as our building is a terrific health club, and we bought a 15-visit pass for all of us to share; they "punched" it once for each person/visit, and we still didn't use it up during the week. There was also an ATM in the same block, and I used it several times to get additional pesos.

Finally, there are lots of beach (and regular) towels in the unit, and a well-equipped laundry room inside the unit in case we ran out of clean clothes or towels. We didn't end up using the TVs much, although there is a flat-screen TV in every room. The owners are gracious and helpful, and made the whole experience that much more pleasurable. We will definitely return!

Beautiful Condo with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

This condo was great! Beautifully appointed and the view was amazing. Loved the sliding doors that gave us an unobstructed view of the pool and ocean and brought outdoor living into the condo. Also appreciate the owners and staff who made sure we were taken care of during our stay. It truly was a great week...relaxing and fun and would certainly return!

Experience the Opulence of 362965

  • 5 of 5

On November 12, 2016, I embarked on a 8 day pleasure excursion to the city of Puerto Vallarta, MX, lodging at the beautiful Molina De Aqua in Old Town, PV.

I met with 5 other gents from other cities across the U.S., where the 6 of us shared a spacious rental home, with beachfront luxury. The immaculate Unit, furnished in modern day design, included all of the amenities and furnishings of your own personal home, while offering the upmost comfort and picturesque views that anyone could imagine.

The 362965 Rental Team provided the most ideal customer service imaginable from the initial contact all the way through my return back home. From Airport travel assistance, to Grocery Store delivery service, to housekeeping services, the 362965 Team took great care of me and my traveling party.

I would recommend the Molina De Aqua, Rental 362965 to anyone interested in Experiencing Opulence at its finest.

The Molina De Aqua, located in Old PV, has many, many fantastic restaurants, retail stores, banks, gyms, and nightlife attractions. The local citizens cohabitating the area, are all so friendly and welcoming.

This is my home away from home...

  • 5 of 5

Well, this makes my fourth time renting this location. The owners, have managed to create an experience that you will never forget. Everything from the accommodations to the location is well....AMAZING. From the moment you meet the concierges you immediately know that you've come to the right place. Once you enter into this beautifully designed and decorated condo it takes your breathe away. But, make no mistakes.. there's nothing too "foo-foo" or "gaudy" or "over done" about this place. It is simply PERFECTION. I can't wait to book trip #5.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is beautiful, immaculate, and perfectly located in the Romantic Zone. It is spacious and equipped with everything you will need for a perfect vacation. The grounds are beautiful and the pool is phenomenal. It is well secured and safe. The view is great. Everyone we encountered were nice and helpful. There are beautiful fireworks every night around 9pm that are awesome which can be viewed from the wonderful open balcony. Very nice restaurants are within walking distance. I highly recommend this location and will return here on my next voyage to Puerto Vallarta. Thanks for allowing us to stay and making this an fantastic and unforgettable week.

Paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

Why would we stay In Steve and Peter's condo in Molino de Agua for the third time? There are numerous reasons, but here are just a few of the ones that were important to us.

Firstly, location. This spacious and modern condo is situated smack in the centre of the Romantic Zone and you only need to step through the secure gate of the fenced property and you’re right on the Malecon (boardwalk). Go right or left for a long leisurely walk in the morning or, if you prefer, an early morning jog. Or maybe just stroll to one of the many cafes for a coffee. If you’re a beach walker, it is directly in front of you. There are many upscale restaurants, markets and galleries. Music and street entertainment is everywhere. As the condo is on the second floor with an unhindered view of the Malecon, the large infinity pool and Banderas Bay, our favourite time of day was early morning with coffee on the large, comfortable balcony. Every morning we would have our coffee there and say our hellos to the staff as they walked by. Staff at Molino seem to clean from daybreak till dusk. Not that the property needed it, but just to keep the impeccable standard of cleanliness that was so noticeable on our first stay. All the staff seem to honestly care about maintaining that standard.

Our second reason for returning to Steve and Peter’s condo is that the residence was totally worry free. In terms of amenities, you want for nothing. Phone, laundry, cable tv’s, computer, Wi-Fi, quality appliances, you name it. This condo reflects the “spare no expense’” attitude of the owners. As we have toured around Puerto Vallarta quite a bit and have been able to compare this property to others, we truly believe that there is no equal. Molino de Agua and this condo are number one on our list.

Finally, and most importantly, my wife has said that Puerto Vallarta, this property and especially this condo is the place she would be happy to return to, year after year. I second her opinion because I feel the same way. We’re not not rich people, by any standard, but for value, quality and location you could not make a better choice than this property and especially this condo. Thank you Steve and Peter. If your intention was to establish an atmosphere of the “Life Styles of the Rich and Famous, you have exceeded it. We will return.

Los Muertos Beach (complex fronts on beach)
Car: not necessary

This amazing complex sits on Los Muertos beach in Old Town Puerto Vallarta in the area of Romantic Zone. It is so close to shopping, restaurants and nightlife activities that you will never need a car. The 'Malecon' boardwalk is directly in front of the complex and is great for leisurely walks or really good power walking first thing in the morning. Even though our kitchen is completely equipped, don't forget to try out the abundance of incredible restaurants with world renowned chefs. The cuisine in Puerto Vallarta is very international, so you can get a lot more than just burritos! The residents and staff of our complex are very friendly, so if you need help in finding something, just ask.
