Overview

About the property

Over 1200 square feet of oceanfront living just steps from the beach.

You can’t get any closer to the beach than this!

Gorgeous beach-front condo with only a heated pool between you and the ocean. Spacious, open & beautifully decorated, you will love taking breakfast (and dinner?) on the patio and watching the pelicans skim the waves. High ceilings and sliding glass doors lead to breathtaking views of the entire bay from the city to Los Arcos and beyond. Parking, 24-hour gated security, 2 elevators, bi-lingual reception staff and a bus stop outside.

See city lights, cruise ships, the Pirate ship, evening fireworks, awesome sunsets, plus whales (in season), dolphins, birds and manta rays from the privacy of your deck. Fully air-conditioned including ceiling fans on the terrace & both ceiling fans and A/C in every room. Master bedroom has Queen bed and 4-piece ensuite. Guest bedroom with King. Loads of cupboards. Fully equipped kitchen. Separate dining and living areas. Washer & dryer. WiFi. Satellite TV. Pets welcome. Smoking on the outside terrace only, please.

Close enough (10 minutes) to the city but far enough removed to enjoy the quiet and calm of this premier property - and there are no vendors on this beach!

About Steffany

I grew up in Vancouver and then moved to Toronto. After my marriage, we lived in Florida for a while but we always headed to Puerto Vallarta every chance we got so after my husband died, I decided to move there. When I found the summers too hot, I moved up to the mountains just south of Guadalajara but I kept the condo in Vallarta because it was just too beautiful to give up!

Why Steffany chose South Zone

I wanted to enjoy the best Vallarta has to offer - white sand beaches, magnificent views of the Bay of Banderas, pelicans skimming the waves, colorful bougainvilla and gorgeous palm trees - without the crowds, but still be in easy reach of downtown with its nightlife and restaurants and recreation. This is it! A little piece of heaven.

What makes this condo unique

No matter where I am in this condo, I can see and hear the ocean. The front is all glass sliding doors - both from the living area and the master bedroom - that lead out to the patio. At night I fall asleep to the sound of the surf. Mmmmmm or should I say Zzzzzzzzz

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a really wonderful time thanks. The apartment, location, pool and beach were all wonderful, and the staff and other tenants very friendly. We hired a car and used your guide books to explore the area and found great beaches and boat trips. We are very keen to come back to that area of Mexico soon. We would be delighted to recommend your apartment to anyone. Many thanks

Best place I have stayed in Puerto Vallarta - will definitely be back!

  • 5 of 5

I have been to Puerto Vallarta and stayed in a variety of accommodations but this one was my all time favourite! The condo had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and although it was a little further out than I have stayed before, there is a bus stop directly across the street which takes you into town for a mere 7 pesos! I was in town almost every day and had no problems with the short (10 minute) bus ride back and forth. It is also located on the road to the Botanical Gardens so a wonderful afternoon was spent hopping on the bus and exploring the gardens. The balcony and pool area are the highlight. When I wasn't on the balcony enjoying the sound of the crashing waves, I was in the heated pool. I still miss falling asleep to the sound of the ocean and I promise I will be back very soon!

Very disappointed with the cleanliness of the apartment and lack of contact from the owner

  • 1 of 5

My husband and I, with our 2 year old daughter stayed here for a family wedding at the Garza Blanca. HomeAway don’t provide the address until after you book so I estimated it was a 5mins walk from GB. When the address was revealed our car company couldn’t locate it. When I pressed Steffany for some help, I was finally given the condo block name. I also asked her to clarify how far it was to the Garza and she said 15mins by foot. She didn’t tell me that the walk was along a really busy highway, so was actually too unsafe to walk it.

The access instructions never came. I didn’t know if Steffany was going to meet us, if there was a key safe, or front desk. I messaged her on the day we were due to check in, but got no response.

Luckily there is a front desk. We were excited when we arrived – the apartment is huge and the view is beautiful. The excitement subsided when we realised how dirty, dusty and grimy it was, with dead flies everywhere. The whole place stank – it was a musty, damp smell.

We decided the dark back bedroom would be good for our daughter, but we had to abandon anyone sleeping there. The headboard and bedside tables were covered in a white mould. At first I thought they were painted white, it was that bad. The room and bedding smelt really musty. The air con unit wasn’t very strong so it felt sweaty and hot. The room was uninhabitable, so three of us had sleep in one bed. The next day we moved the mouldy furniture and washed the sheets.

I repeatedly tried to call Steffany in the morning but the calls didn’t connect. I emailed and messaged her but 3 weeks on I still haven’t heard anything back.

We tried to organise a maid but she had to cancel and due to the public holiday we couldn’t get another. Our feet were constantly filthy, we couldn’t use anything in the kitchen without washing it first, and a thick layer of dust was everywhere. I’m not overly dramatic, but I was so upset that I cried. On our third day we finally organised a maid through the front desk.

The photos don’t show it, but the air con units are on the balcony, pushing out heat. It was dirty, hot, and so riddled with ants we couldn’t let our daughter use it.

I’m not sure what happened. Maybe no one had stayed there for a while, Steffany forgot to get it cleaned, and something else occupied her so she couldn’t be contacted. I hope when she reads my messages she will refund us for the spaces we couldn’t use, for the hassle, the upset, & cost of the maid.

Awesome

  • 4 of 5

Location, surf, heated pool, quaint beach, amazing view and Stefanie's sweet place were everything as advertised. Only lost a half star for sheets and pillows needing serious attention.

Thanks Stef!

Beach-lovers paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We booked Steffany's condo because it looked like it was the closest to a sandy beach at a very reasonable price. Boy, did this place deliver! When the sun shines directly on the waves, you can see straight to the sandy bottom. The see-through emerald waves brought tears to my eyes, it was that beautiful! There is a rocky outcrop by the beach that's a haven for tropical fish. We spent hours snorkeling and filming the fish that kept on about their business as if we weren't there. The rest of the beach is sandy, with a slight drop off that causes the waves to break close to shore only, so we could float and bob to our hearts content! This beach is semi-private, due to the distance from town and because the public entrances are a little far off. As for the condo itself, it's true to the photos, with beautiful natural stone tiling throughout. The water pressure was awesome, with never ending hot water, very important to wash off the salt and sand of a typical beach outing. We enjoyed the huge patio, drinking coffee there in the morning, or wine in the evening. It met all our needs and then some. Be warned, you should plan a thorough grocery shopping outing by taxi (about 200 pesos each way) as there are no stores within walking distance. You can take the bus for 8 pesos to the nearest Oxxo convenience store at Conchas Chinas for basic stuff, the orange and white bus line is the only one you need, and the stop is right in front of the condos. The building staff are very helpful and polite, quick to provide help with their cart to unload groceries and deliver to your door. They also keep the building safe, keeping gates locked, areas constantly monitored, with nothing that would disturb any of the guests. Doris was our first contact, and she was helpful, kind, polite and overall wonderful!

No doubt, this has been our favorite vacation stay, and that has been mostly due to this rental. Thank you, Steffany, for this opportunity to have truly lived the Puerto Vallarta experience in comfort, beauty and style!

No disapointments. Would go back in a heart beat.

  • 5 of 5

We wanted for nothing. Condo is everything that is advertised. Beach is clean and nice for the morning walks. Ocean was a little on the rough side for a lot of our stay but no problem for experienced swimmer. Heated pool is just down the stairs. Bus stop outside the door, taxis also available outside the door. We had family stay with us and condo has more than ample room for two couples with infant. Patio is perfect for spending outside time and view from there second to none. Doris and staff were friendly and helpful. Restaurants and groceries are a 15 minute bus ride into old town Puerto Vallarta . Good place to kick back and relax.

Wow! What an incredible place.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful condo on an exquisite beach. It has everything including comfortable beds, great bathrooms (the master even has a tub), perfect living room for relaxing and entertaining, and of course the balcony for lounging and looking over the ocean. The beach has a wonderful shallow entry so even kids can wander in and out yet it is great for paddle boarding and kayaking and, perhaps best of all, there are no venders! Bus stop outside the door dropped us off at the top of Basilio Badillo, the main street in the Romantic Zone, where there are all kinds of stores and restaurants. I can't think of a better place to stay.
