Vallarta South of the River

We offer a charming two bedroom apartment at Condominiums Loma del Mar - a beautifully landscaped garden spot with banana trees, white ginger, huge towering trees and a pool that provides something for everyone with a shallow end for children and a large five foot deep section for serious swimmers. The complex is located two blocks up the hill from the pier in Olas Altas, an area referred to as the Romantic Zone or Old Town or sometimes simply 'south of the river'. Just eight easy walking blocks from the main center of downtown, Olas Altas is a neighborhood of bars, sidewalk coffee shops, cyber cafes and restaurants of all sizes and varying cuisine. But the landscaping and location of Loma del Mar make it a world apart from the nearby noise and hubbub.

We provide a totally equipped apartment...including cable TV, VCR, and a stereo accommodating both cassettes and CDs. The living room opens onto a patio garden with hanging ferns, impatience, and a few very unusual cacti. There is a table and chairs there that make a wonderful place to have coffee in the morning or read a book in the afternoon. The kitchen is fully equipped with a microwave oven, toaster oven/broiler, blender, coffeemaker, gas stove with oven and broiler, and an array of spices and condiments for you to use. We can stop at the supermarket on the way in from the airport to shop for veggies and perishables. The liquor cabinet stays stocked...drink some and leave some...and there is even a collection of jigsaw puzzles and books. There is a king bed in one bedroom and a double in the other.

Maid service is provided three times a week by Lucila at whatever hour you choose. You are going to learn to love this woman. She is perfection personified. And she can understand your English although she will probably not speak it back to you. You will find an English/Spanish dictionary among the books if you need a bit of help.

This was our neighborhood for 11 years before we moved to Bucerias...and we liked it. Many times we find ourselves missing it and all the activity. So if you choose this apartment we will be happy to take you down on the street and have a drink or two and introduce you to the neighborhood.....it's fun. We can also help you with local tours and excursions.

There is off street secure parking for one vehicle.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of May in P.V and we thoroughly enjoyed staying at Patricias condo! Patricia, Joanne and lucila were a pleasure to deal with. Made us feel very much at home and had no hesitation and answering my 1 million questions! The apartment was great for our family of five. The pictures don't do it justice as we found that it was so quaint and very traditional! Exactly what we wanted to see in Mexico! very comfortable two bedroom. Very clean. The condo only has fans, no air conditioning but because of its location on ground-level it stayed very cool.

We found that we felt very safe and secure as well. The security guard's were so helpful in helping us get our water (30 pesos for large jug) and answering any questions we had as well. One even started to teach me Spanish! The pool is awesome! Like a bathtub. Our kids loved it! Loved the resident lizard as well ;)

Location, location!!! What can I say? Two blocks from the beach and action of Romantic! Wow!!! We had no problems with the hill however this could be a concern for someone who has mobility issues. Having said that there's always 1000 cabs around to take you up the hill. I love that there are two options to access the condo. Walking through romantic or going up the 200 Highway. Oxxo stores are close if you need milk or snacks. Subway is also right above the condo just in case you get tired of tacos!

Loved our time in PV and at Loma Del Mar!

Super Comfortable and Affordable

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I stayed at this condo three years ago. I'm heading back with my husband and was pleased to find the unit still on VRBO, I figured I'd write a review of my previous stay.

This condo is not fancy by any means but it is super clean, fully equipped, and within walking distance to many area attractions. The unit has two ample size bedrooms and beds, a small bath and a decent size living room area. The kitchen is small but more than stocked with utensils and equipment. It has a nice enclosed patio that you can keep your beach gear on. There is also a nice pool on the property if you don't feel like walking the three blocks to the beach. The owners were super nice and easy to work with, they even picked us up from the airport (for $25) and took us to the bank and grocery store. They also gave us the lay of the land and suggested places we might enjoy. The condo is safe and quiet and I'd happily stay there again...it's a steal for the area.

Charming

  • 4 of 5

Not opulent and not spartan. Charming is the word for it. Quiet. Comfortable beds. Close to shopping for toiletries, groceries and all. Walking distance to everything. Located on a hilltop that looks more intimidating than it is. I was not sure if there was a place to grill in the community of condos. There is not a view of the ocean form this unit. However the tropical planitings are very beautiful. Owner is easy to work with.
