- There are many fantastic day trips. A day trip to Yelapa accessible by water taxi for a walk to a tropical waterfall and lunch on the Yelapa beach is a fantastic one day outing. A quick taxi ride to the romantic zone for a walk around old town and dinner is a nice way to spend the evening....moreless

The condominium is exactly as pictured. No expense spared in providing luxe linens for the beds and baths. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen well stocked. A private elevator opens into the unit. The location of the complex is ideal with a large supermarket one block away. One block from public transportation. The beach in front of the Icon is pristine with a terrific beachfront bar/grill for the exclusive use of Icon guests and owners. The unit is spacious, beautifully decorated and everything we hoped it would be. The owner was terrific to work with as was the property manager.

Girl's Special Birthday Week
My lifetime girlfriends and I spent our very "special" birthday in this "movie star" gorgeous condo. The moment we walked in we were speechless at the beautiful decor and view. Everything was just perfect. The kitchen was so well equipped, we had wine glasses, martini glasses etc. Obviously, we were celebrating!! We didn't do too much cooking as there was a wondeful little reastaurant at the beach, and of course, PV has sooo many wonderful restaurants there is no need to cook. The beds were wonderfully comfortable. There were enough towels for bathing as well as plently of towels for the pool. The furniture was beautiful and the condo's decor was stunning. The Icon Vallarta is so beautiful and we just loved it there so much that my husband and I have already rented from January - March of 2013. Unfortunately, Erwin's condo was already rented for those dates. Also Erwin is a pleasure to work with. He is very concerned that everthing will be perfect for your vacation. He is very open for suggestions and opinions should there be something to improve upon. I found everything to be perfect the way it was. The security deposit was returned promptly just as promised. Anyone who rents this beautiful condo will not be disappointed. Jan from Chicago

Even better than the listing description, it was a magical experience all around! High atop Puerta Vallarta w/ a drop-dead, almost 360° view. Hip and stylish, yet very warm and welcoming. Beautiful architectural details and beautiful decor -- wonderful color schemes in each room. Everything in perfect condition. Comfy beds, convenience everywhere -- not one missing detail!! A real plus was that it was such a pleasure working with the owner -- he was soo accommodating and helpful -- he even offered dining ideas and driving instructions outside the property!!. The property has the most beautiful gym you've ever seen (Philippe Starck design!), and even a restaurant or two if you don't feel like staying in the condo. DEFINITELY 2 thumbs up!!! A real "TEN"! I wouldn't hesitate recommending this property to any friend or relative. Really perfect on all fronts!!

A Fabulous Find
A Fabulous Find
My all too brief stay at Icon Vallarta was heavenly. I'm an old Vallarta hand and I've never enjoyed more beautifully appointed, elegant, yet comfortable accommodations. Erwin's condo is stunning, with breathtaking views on three sides, that had our group of friends gazing contentedly at the horizon at all hours of the day and night. In fact, we woke up during a thunderstorm and watched the play of lightening over the water... spectacular. I would love to come back during whale watching season! The kitchen has everything a cook might need, though we used it sparingly. We were usually dining poolside or at the beach bar. Scrumptious salads and sandwiches, and wonderful breakfasts. I highly recommend the chilaquiles verdes, followed by a workout at the gym, or a romantic walk on the beach. The hotel staff was always helpful and gracious, making us feel cared for and protected. The Icon is obviously family friendly, but I think singles and couples will appreciate its sophisticated ambience and witty decor. The resort is surrounded by great options for dining and dancing, and it's a quick taxi ride to the shops and restaurants of old Vallarta... and only minutes to the airport and Costco! I would recommend Erwin's condo and Icon Vallarta to anyone who wants to escape the day to day stresses and hassles of home and enjoy a little pampering in Paradise.

My husband and I tend to stay in hotels/resorts and we're usually hesitant to rent another person's home, but for a joint anniversary celebration with another couple, our friends sent us a link to this place and we signed on. So glad we did! Like another reviewer said, the online pictures do not do justice to the breathtaking beauty of this place. The first steps into the apartment via the private elevator are truly jaw-dropping. The unique decor is right out of the pages of a high-end magazine. The building is perfectly situated near the airport, shopping and restaurants, but directly on a lovely part of the beach. All of the top resort amenities are there....concierge, excellent restaurant, spa, gym, and huge private pool and beach. As an aside, I also have to say that this place has the nicest, plushest towels I've ever used. The owner was very helpful when we asked for his help on local boating tours and restaurant options. Did I say we loved it? My husband and I are hoping to bring our kids here next summer.

Luxurious but comfortable
Luxurious but comfortable
We have just returned from a 10 day vacation at the Icon. Erwin's apartment is just like the photos; chic, luxurious but also extremely comfortable. We were very impressed with the quality of all the appliances - everything is high-end. The pool area always had plenty of beds available and having a roped off section on the beach was a real luxury. We ate at the poolside restaurant every day and were never disappointed with the food. The prices for food and drinks were very reasonable and having drinks delivered around the pool was also a real treat. The staff at check-in and the staff at the restaurant were always very friendly and helpful. Gym was very well equipped and the business centre was very useful for checking e-mails or flight information. Our kids used the watersports on the beach on many occasions; sea-doos, kayaks, para-sailing and banana boat rides. The supermarket is easy walking distance with almost everything you need, if not Walmart is also within walking distance. In the other direction is Starbucks and a number of excellent restaurants that we walked to on a regular basis (5mins). Being July and were concerned about the rain but the weather was perfect. It did rain every night but the lightning storms were amazing to watch from the balcony and we were always able to make it out in the evening for dinner. The only downside to the rain was it did make the water in the ocean brown due to run-off from the rivers and we found there was debris in the ocean on a number of occasions making swimming not so enjoyable. The only other downside was there was construction going on next to Tower 1 that created a lot of noise - so much so that we could not sit out on the balcony during the day and early evening towards the end of our vacation. Also the noise was very loud down by the pool. I would recommend checking before you go to see what stage the construction is at. Otherwise one of the best apartments/resorts we have ever stayed in and we would highly recommend.

Even better than i imagined!
Even better than i imagined!
the photos and text in this profile got me excited about staying at this condo, but I have to say that they did not do the space justice. i was completely blown away when i arrived. As the elevator doors open, you step directly into the space and .... the view... WOW!! It was extraordinary -- ceiling to floor walls of glass that look out onto what looks like the edge of the world. It was mesmerizing and incredibly relaxing. I loved sitting on the wrap-around balcony, alternatively reading and just soaking up the seascape. The rooms are spacious and the decor is gorgeous; every need has been thought about and provided for with style and luxury. We had some great meals in town, but also cooked in for dinner one night -- the kitchen is well appointed and right in the common living space so that cooking was a fun group experience. The resort and beach are also lovely -- the resort is way cool and whimsically fun, the beach is fine sand with all the amenities, ie, chaises, bar, restaurant, water activity rentals, pools, hot tubs, etc. I definitely want to stay here again!

Just returned after a week of living an absolute dream! The condo is stunning to say the least. The views are absolutely breathtaking. Decor is very modern and very comfortable...loved it! The location can not be beat...Costco, Wal-Mart and Soriano's grocery store - has everything one would need. The staff at the ICON are simply amazing - so friendly and very accommodating. Pools...beautifully maintained - grounds are immaculate. Restaurant at the resort was very good and prices were very reasonable. Thanks again Erwin for making our trip one to remember.

We had a wonderful vacation at this property. Check in was seamless as we were immediately met by the property manager even though we experienced a delay In our travel time. The condo is well maintained, beautifully furnished and well stocked with the essentials for having a "home away from home". The pictures and description on VRBO perfectly reflect this property. The owner is very concerned about making your stay as pleasant as possible. The pool and beach area have comfortable beds to lie on. There is poolside and beachside drink and refreshment service. The restaurant on the beach has a good menu for a very reasonable price. The property is meticulously kept clean. This property is in a great location. Easy walking distance to shopping and restaurant areas. There are several great restaurants a 10 minute walk down the highway at the peninsula complex. There is an Argentinian steakhouse there that we went to several times. We had chicken and several cuts of beef, served with salad, average price $10. All dishes were delicious. Costco is a short $5 taxi ride away, so it is easy to stock up on food itmes if one wishes to eat "in house". All in all, our experience at this property was a positive one. It would be good to keep in mind that the elevator opens directly into the apartment so it is best to keep "valuables" well tucked away. There is currently no safe in the apartment.
