Acapulco condo description

My wife once said: 'How is the condo at Velero Galeon any different from the 5-Star Hotel and Resort properties we've had the opportunity to visit over the years'?...'We've got large square-footage rooms, all-marble floors, two bathrooms, and fully furnished kitchen' 'Two balconies overlooking our four pools(2 adult, 2 kiddie), the Pacific Ocean, Wireless High Speed Internet in unit, Hi-Definition Sony TV, English-Spanish Cable, DVD, Washer/Dryer, our own maid, 24-Hour Bellman service, etc. etc.'...

My response was: 'I can think of some. The natural beauty here at Velero Galeon far exceeds many of those properties. The weather is always impeccable, we're located on the Penthouse Floor, the Staff is incomparable with friendly, fast service...and...the Big One...the value!!...about 15 to 20% of the cost'.

At least 20 good restaurants of all tastes, plus Convenience Stores and Supermarkets all within walking distance make 'Dining Out' or 'Dining In' equally convenient--and inexpen


THE LATEST: Things have have just kept getting better and better !

Thanks to our sons' ownership and their hospitlity, we're able to enjoy the Unit and the continual improvements they make to it ...constantly renewing all aspects : Decorating, Kitchen Appliances, Sony Hi-Def, 95 Channel Bilingual TV, Wi-Fi Internet, Balcony Door/Window Remodeling, state- of-the- art, SILENT remote control Air Conditioning, new King-Size Bed, to name just a few.

Our favorite new projects lately include: our Beach Tent and Furniture for guests' use on our Dedicated Beach (five steps down from our Pool Deck); Digital Cable, which, in addition to 95 Bilingual TV Channels adds 50 Channels of Beautiful Music; plus...to make a relaxing vacation even more relaxing...New Remote-Controlled Awnings for our TWO Balconies...which overlook our Building's Twin Olympic-Size Pools..and...of course, Beautiful Acapulco Bay itself.

Ahh...Coffee in the morning on the Balcony...

THE BUILDING AND LOCATION: The Building, 'Velero y Galeon' is universally acclaimed as 'The Most Beautiful, Best Maintained Building...in the Best Location of Acapulco'.

We're located right on the Costera, the main Boulevard of Acapulco, our Doorman can hail a Taxi for you, or you can choose City Bus Service right outside the door of our magnificent Lobby. Either alternative method of transport is very economical and a good value in Acapulco.

As for conveniences within our complex...we have three Restaurants, 1) 'The Mansion'...which a great many people say is the 'Best Steakhouse in Acapulco'; 2)'The Sushi'...which features 'Alfredo', a Japanese-trained, International Award-Winning Chef; 3) 'The Chinese Buffet' a quick, authentic and economical alternative. There are 20+ restaurants of all varieties and budgets within walking distance.

Also 'On Property' is a Covenience Store . Need Milk, Bread, Soda, Beer, etc.?

Golf or Tennis? Golf Course and Tennis Courts are directly across the street !

About Us, and Our 'Home Away from Home' : We vacationed in Acapulco over 20 years. Now thar we're retired, thanks to the ownership of the condo by our sons and their gracious hospitality, we use PHA3 Velero personally for many months each year during various seasons. We'd be there more, if it weren't for those great sons, daugther-in-law and three incredible grandkids...who all live near us in the Chicago area. Their Condo is truly our entire family's second home, and we treat it that way. When you walk in you won't have to search or shop for any of the basics, because they're all there...including little things like soap, spices, paper towels, coffee filters......and whatever happens to be in our little 'honor bar' at the time.

PHA3's delightful Maid 'Maura', will have the place ready for you.

We 'earn our keep' by helping our sons with reservations, and would love to hear from you!

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: Hi ! We're Nancy & Jim Huening from Palatine, Illinois, U.S.A., a Chicago suburb. We're a retired couple who are 25 year 'veterans' of vacationing in Acapulco. We're absolutely thrilled and thankful that as retirees it is possible for us to spend many, many weeks each year at Velero y Galeon...which is described by virtually everyone who knows Acapulco well 'as the most beautiful and best maintained buiiding...in the best location of Acapulco.' The only thing that keeps us from spending more time than we do at our place in Acapulco is wanting to spend time with our great children and grandchildren, who all live in the Chicago area.

                          Why the Owner Chose Acapulco:
                          We vacationed at Velero y Galeon in Acapulco every year for 25 years, and have NEVER had a day without sunshine or below 75 degrees.
