Los Muertos Beach condo description

Located two blocks from the Los Muertos Beach Pier. A precious few low rise buildings nestled in a large tranquil garden setting with stunning views of the ocean, mountains, bay and city make up this quiet retreat just steps from great restaurants, shopping, convenience services and entertainment. Zero entry heated pool with infinity edge, Jacuzzi, workout room, large shaded palapa area on pool deck with WI-FI, secure parking and magnificent landscaped grounds complete this treasure. The condo is beautifully appointed throughout in a casual elegant Mexican style with custom touches, high end appointments and numerous upgrades. Comfortable seating, custom made American sized and quality pillow-top mattresses, luxury linens, a fully equipped granite and stainless kitchen and 2 balconies plus a large private outdoor patio with grill and covered dining are only some of the amenities provided. Over 1750 sq. feet of private indoor and outdoor space. PLEASE CHECK CALENDAR FOR AVAILABILITY.

This is our home away from home and we are furnishing it for our comfort and that of our guests. You will find gauzy drapes gently moving with the breezes off the Bay of Banderas and the Sierra Madre mountains and comfortable chairs and sofas in leather, woven natural banana leaf fiber and cool cotton upholstery. Saltillo tile floors, stucco walls, arched doorways, Mexican handicrafts, and perrotta wood detail throughout provide a distinctively Mexican feel. In the kitchen, granite counters, tile, and perrotta cabinets continue the style while up-to-date modern fixtures and appliances provide all the convenience you would expect. The beautifully landscaped two level patio is unique to this unit as it is very large and very private with a gas grill and comfortable furnishings. The patio and balconies have a view of the ocean and the city's famous Cathedral. You can watch the sky turn bright pink over the ocean at sunset and see the fireworks from across the bay. In unit secure free WIFI and unlimited VoiP Canadian/US phone plus local landline phone.

The complex: Our home is part of a magnificent condo complex where you will be surrounded by beautifully maintained tropical flowers, plants, & trees. The low-rise low-density buildings artfully tuck into the perimeter of what seems like a botanical garden. In the center is the fabulous HEATED zero-entry, infinity-edge pool with spa, and large pool deck with breath-taking views of mountain, city, & ocean, pool deck WIFI, workout facility, kitchen, and washrooms. There are handmade tables and chairs under the large palapa and padded lounge chairs & umbrellas for sun and relaxation. This peaceful oasis is set right in the middle of the liveliest part of town, called the Zona Romantica, Old Town, or Los Muertos Beach area. You are 2 blocks from the best beach in PV and 3-10 minutes walk to lots of great restaurants, lively bars & entertainment, shops, banks, ATMs, buses, taxis, quickmarts, liquor stores, bakeries, drug stores, a full grocery store, the River Cuale, and the Malecon.

Zona Romantica/Old Town/Los Muertos Beach: We love this part of town. The cobble stone streets and natural beach are alive with people having a great time all day and half the night. You can play in the sand or swim; go parasailing; fish in the surf; go to sunset cocktail hour on the beach and then have a terrific inexpensive dinner in bare feet; arrange a tour; dine at an upscale restaurant; watch the whales playing on the Bay; have Peking duck made by a Beijing chef; buy handcrafted silver jewelry and local handicrafts; listen to live music; see the Pirate Ship's fireworks display on the Bay at night; take a water taxi to a nature reserve; be serenaded by a mariachi band of little boys; catch a show at Blue Chairs; take the bus cross town for 6.5 pesos to the Marina and look at the yachts or to Wal-Mart to stock up on cheap groceries & sundries; buy fresh tamales for tomorrow's breakfast at 8 p.m. from a street vendor; browse the art and artisan shops. A 10-15 minute walk along the waterfront to downtown will bring you to the Main Plaza and Guadelupe Cathedral.

                              Car: Not Necessary

                              In this Old Town, Zona Romantica, area of Puerto Vallarta, there is a micro-climate of cool evenings and sunny warm days in high-season, with warmer wetter days in off-season. We find it perfect. You can roam the cobbled streets to find wonderful restaurants, artisan shops, lively music and colorful shows, art galleries, jewelry shops, Mexican handicrafts, and fun bars. Los Muertos, the best beach in PV, is just 2 blocks away from Alegria with water sports and parasailing available. You can catch a water taxi there to quaint Yelapa or fish for your dinner. Or you can stroll down the beach to the Malecon to take in the sites downtown--the Church of Guadalupe, live performances at the Main Plaza, etc.. There's something for everyone here. You can soak up the sun at our heated pool or walk down to the lively beach, shop to your hearts content or go for a whale watching sail on Banderas Bay, take a canopy tour in the rain forest, or go gallery hopping.

                              This is an extremely unique and beautiful recently redeveloped condominium complex, laid out within the original gardens of the former property, overlooking the Bay of Banderas and Puerto Vallarta but just steps from the Beach.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                              You will be in a beautiful oasis of flowers and trees just steps from all the action of fun Puerto Vallarta. You are 3 minutes walk from the beach, the bars, the nightlife, great restaurants, shopping, and art galleries, without sacrificing privacy and peace and quiet.
