About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Penthouse Las Estrellas, is a privately-owned Penthouse condominium located in a small, gated boutique building with only 16 units. This modern building, Estrellita del Mar, includes a large heated swimming pool and garden area with great ocean views and is located in the upscale neighborhood of Zona Romantica/Amapas, just above Los Muertos Beach and Old Town.

This is a very quiet neighborhood and is not subject to all the construction noise, bus traffic and nightlife currently being experienced in Old Town.

This Penthouse has approximately 1,800 square feet of living space including a large terrace with panoramic 180-degree ocean views. (Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen and Terrace ALL with Ocean Views.) Free high-speed wifi inside the Penthouse, (your own, private connection) and free wifi at the pool.

The terrace is unusually large, nearly 400 square feet and 30 feet long. It features a unique design, half is covered for shade, the other half open for tanning.

A professional driving service is sent to meet you at the airport upon your arrival and bring you directly to the Penthouse, at no extra charge. Please note that there are also no extra anything charges, there is no "cleaning fee", there is no "extra electricity fee", there are no hidden fees at all.

Everything you could possibly need is included: beach towels, large bath sheets for the bathrooms, a fully stocked, remodeled kitchen with new high-end stainless appliances.

A quick walk down the many stairs, (approximately 7-10 minutes) places you in the heart of Vallarta with the best restaurants, shopping and night life that Puerto Vallarta has to offer. Taxi rates within this area are $50 pesos, or approximately $2.75, including back to the Penthouse from Old Town or the beach. Due to its unique location, Las Estrellas is close enough to walk to everywhere you want to go, yet just far enough from the traffic and noise to provide the quiet tranquility you desire. Twice weekly Housekeeping Service is Included. The building does have an elevator from the pool area to the top floor.

While the building, Estrellita del Mar, is not adults only, it does tend to be a fairly quiet environment, so if you're looking for a place to party, this probably isn't your best choice. Minimum age requirement is 30 years of age or older, for all guests, though I do make exceptions depending on the circumstances.

About Bob Mooney

Las Estrellas is very special to me as I hope it will be to you. This is my home for part of the year and I have tried to make it as comfortable as possible. It is a very eclectic mix of styles including traditional Mexican, Italian and Mediterranean. It is certainly not of the ordinary! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do and fall in love with Puerto Vallarta as I have.

After several stays I didn't think it could get better but it did... New appliances are amazing, and the addition of AppleTV made a movie night fun. Bob's well maintained home makes ones vacation feel effortless and the staff of the property management company PVRPV always responsive. I look forward to the next visit.

Impressive view

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for views then this is the place. It was good to be up and away from the hustle and bustle of the city center , but close enough to walk to restaurants and shows. We ate at Daiquiri Dick’s twice and it was excellent as well as the new De Cantaro. Angel was great in arranging a large van on our last day and Cristina, the housekeeper, was top-notch. She took pride in what she did. The condo is ample for 2 couples with plenty of private space. We enjoyed ourselves. Thank you, Bob for a great stay.

Beautiful Condo, Incredible View

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible property, a fantastic property management, and very helpful property owner. The property was exactly as described. Car service was provided from the airport and the property manager (Angel) was waiting at the condo upon arrival. The condo was incredibly clean and had all the amenties needed for a short stay. As has been mentioned, the view is amazing, and so was the pool. Access to the beach and town is a easy 5 to 10 minute or less walk. We did a mixture of walking and cabbing for returning to the condo. Walking back to the condo is not a big deal during the day for anyone moderately fit, but regardless a cab ride back is easy and cheap, 50 pesos. Perfect place for up to 4 people, you want regret it. THAT VIEW for sunsets, awesome!!!!

Thanks Bob for all the information you provided prior to our stay and being open to the suggestions I provided you.

That view!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the vast majority of our time on the terrace, the mesmerizing view of the bay is incredible. The condo was exceptionally clean and nicely decorated. We really did feel like we were stay in a home as opposed to a vacation rental condo, everything is provided for you. This place has huge vaulted, open beam ceilings and all the kitchen appliances appeared to be brand new. We will definitely be back!

A perfect place to spend Christmas and New Year’s. It’s $1 million view was worth everything

  • 4 of 5

The only reason I didn’t give this wonderful place five stars was simply because- (while I enjoy the comforts of the master bedroom and bathroom) my friend used the guest bedroom and she complained nightly about how uncomfortable the beds were. All it needs is Tempur-pedic pad or something like that to go on top, unless you like a very hard mattress. But other than that, this place was sensational!! the kitchen perfect, and easy to cook in. the terrace was an every day event. we rearrange the furniture a little bit to bring the table right up next to the railing for wonderful viewing. You can see the north and south end of the bay. The pool was perfect and the accessTo the beach and downtown was sublime. I will be back!! Thank you Bob for helping us ring in 2018 in luxury. Oh - and for PV, it was very quiet being up off that road and out of town a bit. Also you can use Uber now and it’s only about three bucks from the condo to the beach. We always walked down and took an Uber back up.

Owner's Response: Hi Elizabeth- I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay at my home! Also, thank you for your comments on the guest room beds. I have never slept on them myself and I have not received any comments on them before, but I will certainly have them checked out as soon as possible! Thank you again for your review and being such a great customer!

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our pre-Christmas week in Bob's home above Banderas Bay in Puerto Vallarta. From arrival to departure we were afforded attentive care. The condo is beautifully appointed. In order to have this kind of view from your patio does require the condo to be situated on a hillside--thankfully there are taxis and elevators for those of us needing accommodations when returning from town.
