About the property

Premier 2 BR/2.5 BA With Stunning Ocean/city Views At Avalon In Amapas.

Enjoy one of the most exquisite locations in Puerto Vallarta for an unparalleled vacation in the heart of the exclusive Amapas district. The Avalon residences has spectacular vistas with over 2,700 square feet of luxurious living space. A well appointed expansive terrace allows for full views of the bay, mountains and city lights of Vallarta. Watch the nightly fireworks from the dining and living rooms or take a taxi downtown to the panoply of shops and restaurants in the nearby Romantic Zone. Alternatively, you can stay home and enjoy the building's two stunning swimming pools: one is a 40 meter heated infinity while the other offers a more intimate setting surrounded by lush tropical jungle gardens.

The interior is tastefully elegant, yet casual with a modern European design aesthetic. Modern art and eclectic objects d'art will catch your eye yet remain perfectly blended throughout the congruent space while your personal preferences are indulged through dimmable lighting and a multi-zone sound system. Special features include: over-sized marble floors, a uniquely designed kitchen with a wall of sleek Italian cabinetry and a 12 ft. long granite covered center island. The spacious bedrooms feature ample closet space, bathrooms with double sinks, granite and slate finishes, as well as a 'rain' shower and designer jet tub. Superior quality beds and superb high thread count linens are standard as well as large flat screen HDTV's with high quality sound systems.

The Avalon residences are nestled among the scenic bluff of Amapas, one of the most exclusive areas of Puerto Vallarta and is a short and scenic walk down to the bustling Romantic Zone and the gorgeous sands of Los Muertos beach. A cute maze of gently winding stairs with landings and hand rails provide a scenic walk and easy access. After a long day at the beach or a night out on the town a taxi can quickly take you back home.

Your vacation at the Avalon residences will provide you with the perfect blend of luxury, exclusivity and accessibility. Enjoy the beautiful views and tranquility of the Amapas hills while still remaining close enough to all the action and bustle of the Zona Romantica below. Once you do arrive, you will meet our first rate administrator and personal concierge who will take you through the condo and provide you with all the services available during your stay. She is also available to set things up prior to your arrival (such as buying groceries, arranging a ride from the airport, organizing trips, obtaining tickets, etc). Please do not hesitate to ask for any special requests you may have. If any needs arise during your stay, please be assured that I am proactive and will do everything possible to ensure you have the perfect vacation in Puerto Vallarta. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.

Sublime

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last year & we are returning for more! I cannot say enough about the exquisite decor and property. The incredible pictures Still do not do it justice. The building is built so well we were barbecuing on the terrace and an incredible rain & wind storm started but not a drop was felt on us! Frederick (the property manager) was fantastic to work with and the owner Clark is so nice to talk to and he is very accommodating as well. Do Not Miss an opportunity to stay here!

Luxury experience

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 9 nights end of August. Facilities here are world class.. ipod docking station with ceiling speakers was the business. Bedrooms and bathrooms luxurious.. loved the whirlpool tub. Easy to cook if you wanted to.. views from the terrace were amazing and we had some memorable evenings dining there watching amazing lightning storms. Facilities on the property are equally good. The gym is world class with AC and a huge variety of strength equipment. The two pools are stunning. I preferred the tranquil green garden pool.. It gets sun by 10:00a.m. and really feels secluded. The blue pool was great for swimmng and views of the bay.

Couple of things to watch for: it's a steep walk down to the the town and you just won't walk it back up in the heat. Taxis are plentiful, easy to get and cost 50 pesos. We walked to town once in 9 days!

Frederick, the property manager helpfully cautioned us about electricity charges and excessive use of the AC. We were glad he did as we were not used to the heat and may have overused the AC without his warning. We used it at night in the bedroom and the odd time in selected rooms during the day and spent about $100 for the week which was totally fine.

I found the owner Clark and Frederick both very helpful and very easy to deal with. This is a great condo experience and I was completely relaxed and chilled out after 9 days here. I think we will be back sometime!

Beautiful condo in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for one week in the hottest week of July. I was a bit scared about the electric cost, but I was given the meter reading and shown the meter and could monitor our own usage. We used the air all night in both bedrooms. The cost for the week was $85. I felt that this experience made me much more conscious of how much electricity is wasted and this experience made me a better consumer. The condo is beautiful and beautifully furnished. The condo has every item you need on a vacation. The kitchen is outfitted with all of the right accessories, and if you cook, I am sure you would find everything you would need, including extra spices. We walked to town, downhill about 10-15 minutes depending on where we were going. We had a vehicle and parked it in the covered parking garage. I don't think most people would want or need a vehicle, but I had some business to tend to while in PV. Taxi service is prompt and the cost was between $4-$5 USD to get around. The security guards are friendly and the staff of Avalon are very nice and helpful. The residents of Avalon are from all over the world and are truly an eclectic group of people. We had many great conversations with the residents of Avalon. This is definitely a step-up from your average vacation condo rental. The gym is very well equipped, the South pool is fabulous for swimming and the North pool is beautiful and tranquil. Avalon is a condo complex that has stunning views of the bay, is close to town-but not too close. This condo owner is easy to work with and the property manager is a great source of information and a nice guy. We loved this unit and we will be back.

Outstanding views

  • 5 of 5

This condo was everything you would expect from the pictures. The view was breathtaking and definitely had the wow factor when seeing it for the first time. You have a front row seat to the beautiful sunsets and the nightly beach fireworks. The complex itself is very quiet and you can be as active or not active as you would like. There are two pools and a gym. If you are the adventurous type, the walk down the hill and into the romantic zone proper is a good workout. I might add my husband and I made this trek every day despite his artificial hip and my artificial knee but it is not a walk for those truly infirmed, you will want to take a cab. The 24 hour security is happy to call a cab for you that will cost you about 50 pesos (to the romantic zone and centro) for about $3.80 US dollars (at time of post). I would suggest buying a hand fan from the local flea market to supplement the fans and the no guarantee of air conditioning you get in most restaurants and bars (higher price restaurants do provide air conditioning. Plus it comes in handy just walking around. While the condo offers zoned air conditioning, we didn't find we needed it until it was time to go to bed.

The kitchen was well stocked with up to date appliances, cooks tools, and basic spices. Not that you want to do a lot of cooking in puerto vallarta because there are so many great restaurants but we find eating breakfast at home makes a great way to enjoy the early morning breezes off the ocean. Lucky was very accommodating and made a point of connecting us to the property manager, Frederick early on. Frederick was there to meet us at the condo and explain how everything worked and to answer any questions. He is also a wealth of information concerning puerto vallarta, where to eat, what to see, so take advantage of his expertise. It's also just fun to listen to his English accent. This is a place that you will not want to leave.

Spectacular home

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a month at the Avalon & I concur with the previous reviews.

The condo is spacious, beautifully decorated, clean, and away from the beach crowd.

The views were spectacular in which you can't help but just sit back & take it all in.

It is only a 10-15 minute walk down to the beach or old town, but if you don't like walking down the hill ask the front desk to call for a taxi. The cost was 50 pesos down & 40 to come back.

The facilities at the Avalon are all you need.

2 pools, gym and great landscaping.

Staff are friendly, polite and hard working. Lopa the maid is excellent.

This is truly a wonderful vacation home.

The views are absolutely spatcular!! and the condo was perfectly outfitted for all of our needs. We can't wait to come back!

The property has a 1000 sq foot professionally equipped fitness center with cardio equipment, weight-machines, free weights, 3 flat screen TVs, air conditioner and beautiful views. The spa has a changing area, showers, massage room and sauna with a his and hers area. Also featured is a 40 meter long heated infinity pool for the perfect swim in the high and Holiday seasons.

It is the perfect location: being above it all, yet so close to the beach and the romantic zone with its panoply of bars, restaurants, and shopping. The vantage allow for watching whales and dolphin when on the terrace or watching the fireworks and big ships coming in and out of port during the day.

Also close by are day trips to the Botanical garden, Zoo and Yelapa: a remote beautiful bay where the locals greet you with hot slices of chocolate, coconut, and a world famous pecan pie.

Other activities close by: eco-tourism, zip lines, extreme adventures, ATV day trips (in the mountains and along the rivers), golfing, walking along the Malecon (new, wider and pedestrian only), or popping in and out of jewellery stores, or local artisan shops to experience the very best of Mexico.
