Property description

We invite you to enjoy our newly remodeled beachfront Condo in the hotel zone of Puerto Vallarta! You'll find yourself just a few minutes from downtown on one of the most beautiful beaches for miles around. Enjoy our condo with a magnificent 14th floor view of Banderas Bay, the Sierra Madre mountains and down town Puerto Vallarta.

This is our home away from home. It has one large bedroom with two queen beds, a marble shower and a sunken living room with sofa bed (can sleep two children), and a fully-equipped kitchen. Our property manager can even have the refrigerator stocked upon your arrival for a nominal fee. New addition this year is a flatscreen TV and Apple tv with access to movies, live sports and more. WiFi is available as is Magic Jack for free calls to the U.S. and Canada. Sit on the balcony for the ultimate cup of coffee keeping an eye out for whales or dolphins just off shore or enjoy that romantic dinner and the sunset.

The former Holiday Inn is currently undergoing major renovations to the rooms, pool, restaurants and public areas and will reopen as Sunscape Resort & Spa in mid-December with six restaurants and bars, each with unique fare. In the meantime you can enjoy the beautiful sandy beach where you can bring your own refreshments - a cooler and umbrella are available in the condo for your use.

Puerto Vallarta is said to be a very safe area with an unusually low crime rate. The area makes most of its living through tourism, so there is a definite interest in keeping tourists (and residents) safe and secure. There are special “ tourist police,” who wear white safari-esque outfits with black shoulder pads, are bi-lingual and will offer directions and assistance to those who need it, in addition to general security. Many people say they feel safer walking in Puerto Vallarta at night than they do in their home cities.

Buses and taxis are readily available (and very inexpensive) to take you to the Malecon (Seaside Boardwalk) or Old Town for shopping, art galleries, the fish market, sidewalk performers, fireworks from the Santa Maria replica pirate ship and international dining. The Marina is also nearby where you can see the cruise ships come in.

Reservations are made directly with me, the owner, a licensed and bonded real estate broker in the US. While on vacation, should you need anything at all, our property managers are located within minutes of the Holiday Inn and are accessible at all times. They even offer personal shopping services at a nominal fee. We do accept online payments. Our goal is to provide you with the ultimate worry free vacation so you will want to be our guest again.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Mike and Betty Schmitt are long time residents of St. Cloud, Minnesota. We enjoy fishing on nearby Clearwater Lake in the summer and are involved with the local antique car club and Lions Club. We also enjoy evening cruises in our '69 mustang.

Why the Owner Chose Hotel Zone:
We vacationed in Puerto Vallarta just one time and fell in love with this beautiful city, walks on the beach and its very friendly people.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We love to eat some of our own meals on the balcony and go out to one of the many fabulous restaurants on other days. A large grocery store called Soriana is just a short walk where you can buy fresh fish and wonderful bakery goods. There are many other shops here as well.
