About Owner/Property Manager

European owned and managed. Long time visitor to PV, own other great property here, but this one is my home, and my work duties overseas have made this available to people who are looking for luxury, quiet, romantic setting, yet close into Old Vallarta, while being on the best beach in town. Newly remodeled with finest materials, granite, marble, elegant mood lighting, top notch appliances and many luxury amenities including oriental rugs and accents from Bali and the Pacific. A perfect hideaway for Romantics who what peacefulness yet to be close in to the action in Old Town--just a short walk or 4 minute ride away. Included are great tips/ insider guide on what to see and enjoy in PV, and high speed wifi, and cable tv in both suites.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this condo in 2012

Why Owner/Property Manager chose South Zone

This special building less than ten units (+elevator), so you have the whole place (including great pool area perched over the beach) to yourselves most of the time, including a great common common pool perched over the beach, and a great covered common entertainment area with pool and beach views. The street is reminiscent of Old Europe with its old world cobblestone charm, and towering mountains above.....

What makes this condo unique

Most people in the know avoid the Hotel Zone or the Marina, and want to be close into the Romantic Zone/Viejo Vallarta with all its shops and restaurants. This location is much more romantic, and more peaceful, yet is only a 4 minute taxi away or a 20 minute walk along paradise like beach trails.

15 Miles

Nearest Restaurant

This is a tropical big sur RETREAT FOR THE MIND AND SPIRIT, an unsurpassed location, with amazing ocean/bay/mtn views, directly in front of two of Banderas Bay's cleanest and safest beaches, just a 4 minute taxi to the heart of old town, or a 20 minute amazing walk along unbelievably gorgeous beach trails. Setting is quiet and peaceful yet close in and directly on the beach, two stories above in a low rise/low density building that will make you feel like you have the whole place, and pool area to yourselves. A world away from the hustle and bustle of Old Town, quiet peaceful romantic, yet only a short distance away directly on top beaches most visitors to PV never get to enjoy....sorry no children.

What a wonderful relaxing vacation we had at this beautiful water front condo!

  • 5 of 5

The stay was pretty much guaranteed to be memorable! As the owner of the unit, Daniel K left nothing from his overall communication with us. From the best way to get out of the PV airport enroute to the condo, the best restaurants to go to and why, the best beaches ( Las Animas is a must) etc. The condo itself was very well appointed, including a nicely stocked bar!

The staff that mange the condo building were also very friendly and helpful.

We would not hesitate to return for another 2 week stay!

And as an FYI we did use Uber exclusively for trips into PV and beyond. Solved the issue of potential over billing from the local taxi drivers.

Wonderful Place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here March 2017 and it is such a beautiful place, we didn't want to go home! The area is referred to as the Beverly Hills of Puerto Vallarta. It is quiet and safe, in an area of low rise residences that is so much nicer than the hotel district. There's an OXXO market up the street that has basic items like milk, eggs, ham, bread, etc. The condo is 2 floors above the beach where you can get in the clean, clear water to swim or snorkel. The beach is somewhat private but all beaches are public property. There's another more swim-able beach just literally a minute away below the condo next door. The condo is nicely decorated with marble floors and counters, fully equipped kitchen to cook whatever you want. The master bedroom bed was very comfortable and has a gorgeous view! Both bathrooms are nice with walk-in showers and large, thick towels. The veranda is the entire width of the condo with comfortable chairs. Hearing the waves breaking on the rocks below at night was very soothing to us.

The AC worked fine but we only had it on the first day. We left the sliding door windows (wall to wall) open the whole time we were there and the breeze with ceiling fans did the job wonderfully!

There are folding chairs, umbrella, and snorkel equipment available to use. The pool deck and pool are just above the beach with views too!

The walk to town is about 20 minutes but a taxi can be called and arrive fairly quick. Taxis get to town quickly if you're going shopping, to get groceries at Walmart, or to dinner.

Daniel has kept the place very nice and the building has a front security gate (even though it probably isn't needed).

We're going back next March and added a few more days!!!

Piece of Heaven in Top Location

  • 5 of 5

Will definitely return This luxury condo is on Pv’s best beach which is half mile away from noisy interesting Old Town but worlds apart in tranquility. Owner is super responsive and condo has every amenity. Common area pool is hardly ever occupied so we had it to ourselves and could watch fantastic sunsets over the water from either in pool or from our bedroom , living room or kitchen. This place is like two luxury suites for price of one. Easy cheap taxi into town only Four minutes restaurant and convenience store within walking distance. Beach uncrowded unlike closer in town. Well worth the money.

Fabulous stay in Pto Vallarta in a fantastic apart

  • 5 of 5

"Unbelievable views and location"

Traveled here from Europe to this special property on recommendation of friend. The location, appointments within apartment, and attention by host and staff was unparalleled. I will definitely return. Great for those seeking peaceful oceanfront retreat, building in perfect spot between lush tropical mountains and blue sea. Awesome sunrises and sunsets and fish sightings right from balcony. Great post will return definitely "

Stunning condo, perfect location

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent our honeymoon in this beautiful condo earlier this month and we had the most wonderful time.

The condo is even better in person. The pictures, lovely as they are, really can't do it justice. It's a very spacious two bedroom, two bathroom unit with a comfortable sitting area and kitchen. The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable. The bathrooms felt like we were at a spa. Just wonderful! Our favorite part was the balcony overlooking the ocean. We spent hours each morning and night drinking coffee, watching the sunrise or sunset, listening to the ocean, and watching a few lightning storms. You are literally right next to the ocean...so much closer than you would be at a hotel. The condo is stocked with fluffly bath towels, tons of beach towels, extra sun hats, snorkel gear, shampoo, conditioner, hair dryers, etc. They have thought of everything you could possibly need. We went to the grocery store for breakfast and lunch foods, drinks and snacks, but all of the extras (condiments, spices, etc) are stocked at the condo.

The location is perfect for a quiet, romantic getaway. It's nestled on a semi-private beach with a few other condo buildings, but you're only a 10-minute cab ride away from downtown. We spent most of our days relaxing on the beach (often entirely by ourselves!), eating at the condo and then going into town for dinner at one of the many wonderful restaurants recommended by Daniel.

We did a deep sea fishing tour with Mike's Fishing Charters & Tours and it was the highlight of the trip. Highly recommended. We also did a sailing tour with Vallarta Adventures that was wonderful.

Daniel and Dennis (the onsite manager) were very helpful throughout the trip. We ran into a few issues during our stay but they were very quick to respond and take care of things. Dennis picked us up from the airport and made many wonderful recommendations for things to do. We were thrilled with everything we suggested.

If looking for a quiet, relaxing, romantic getaway, away from the hustle and bustle of a big resort, I can't recommend this condo enough. We had a wonderful week and will absolutely rent it again
