About Philip Evans
I am originally from England, but now live in Los Angeles. I am Director of Starline Tours of Hollywood - so tourism is my job. I love to travel and see the world.
Philip Evans purchased this Condo in 2005
Why Philip Evans chose Cerro
We bought the property in the Old Downtown because we wanted the authentic feel of Puerto Vallarta with the cobbled streets and red tiled roofs. The old Downtown has most of the great art galleries, many of the great restaurants - "Cafe Des Artistes" is just a 5 minute walk from the condo. The Malecon (the seafront promenade) is here - just 8 minutes walk from the condo, where you can stroll along in the evening and watch the world go by. The buildings in the area all have an authentic Mexican feel, rather than the modern sterile blocks that are being built in Nuevo Vallarta and some other parts of the city - which just feel like Hiltons anywhere in the world. In this part of town, we feel like we are in another culture - it feels very mediterranean - Portugal, Spain or Italy. We love the fact that here the rainforest meets the sea. The sunsets are spectacular. Overall, there is always lots to do in this part of town - it is a truly cosmopolitan city with something for everyone.
What makes this Condo unique
The condo building only has 6 condos, so it feels more like a large Spanish house divided up, rather than a condo building. Often we are the only people by the pool. We love having an onsite caretaker who looks after any problems we might have while staying in Puerto Vallarta. The condo itself is about 5 blocks back from the Malecon, up the hill so we get views out over the bay from our Living Room and Bedroom. There is also a breeze that is constantly coming through the condo - so keeping things cool - something that does not happen lower down by the water. The condo has Spanish tile floors and textured walls - so you really feel you are in Mexico. Since we are back from the Malecon, the area is quieter, and since we are on a dead-end street, there are no cars just passing by. We recently did a major remodel which included totally gutting and updating both of the bathrooms, buying new furniture and beds, purchasing new kitchen appliances and washer & drier. Since we bought this place primarily for ourselves, we like to keep the place looking as good as possible so we can just relax and have fun when we are there.

This is my 3rd year to stay at Ibiza......Philip’s condo was lovely.....we were in want of nothing....very comfortable....easy access to the rooftop....and easy to the pool.....I’ll be back
It is always a pleasure to have you stay.
Great place to stay
The location, neighbours, suite were all great. I highly recommend this vrbo rental.
Glad you had a wonderful time.
Beautiful clean complex, well appointed condo, close but far enough from the lively town
This is our second trip to Ibiza. The complex is very clean and safe, thanks to Lupe who has a work ethic second to none. Philip’ Unit is very comfortable and has beautiful updated bathrooms. The art makes it feel luxurious and fitting to the area. Don’t hesitate to have the opportunity for coffee on the balcony with amazing views. You won’t be disappointed!
We are glad u had a wonderful time and enjoyed the condo as much as we do.
Un condo un peu en hauteur mais facile d'accès
Un accueil très chaleureux ... hola Lupe
Condo très propre et bien équipé , agréable d'y cuisiner
J'y retournerai volontiers
Great location. Get away from the “hotels”.
Wonderful property. Great location - close to the malecón. Many restaurants and shops. Nice to be in a real neighborhood not in the hotels.
Not a problem for many but don’t be surprised by the climb. But it is worth it. We are in “El Cerro” after all.
The on site caretaker, Lupe, is fabulous. Washer and dryer onsite. Beds were very comfortable. Everything you need is there. Neighbors were very friendly.
The roof patio - great views (ok, La Panorama restaurant infringes a bit but it is still beautiful).
Everything was great. Already planning on returning.
We are so glad you enjoyed our condo as much as we do.
We look forward to seeing you again
Beautiful and comfortable
The condo is in a great location to enjoy all the local tourist sights. It is a beautiful place, very well maintained and managed. We felt safe and comfortable. The roof has gorgeous views and the pool is wonderful after a day of shopping and sightseeing. The entire property is very clean. There are videos available to watch and a lot of books to read for those who want to just hang out for a day at the condo. The owners gave us a lot of great sightseeing tips and overall communication was excellent. The only slight downside is it is a bit noisy at night. There are dogs barking much of the night (not on this property but in the area) and the malecon is noisy late into the night. For light sleepers, this might bother you. Also be aware that the streets up to the condo include steep inclines and lots of stairs. It's a workout to be ready for if you have anyone in your group who is not physically fit or has mobility issues. They may need to cab it back and forth. Again, no reflection on this place. It is otherwise perfect. We would definitely recommend staying here. We love to walk and it was close to everything we wanted. Thanks!
