                                            WOW WOW WOW- Where do I begin? 2,500 characters could not be enough to give the complete rundown of this phenomenal property. From the moment I found this wonderful condo on the website, it was a fantastic vacation experience. The owners are so incredibly kind and accommodating and were so helpful in answering my questions regarding their little piece of paradise in Puerto Vallarta! This was a girls trip- in celebration of a very special birthday for me. I have been in love with Puerto Vallarta since the first time I touched down there 27 years ago. I have visited over 30 times. I wouldn't stay in any other location than in Old Vallarta. There is so much charm and you get the feel of MEXICO rather than being in a more commercialized area. Staying in this gorgeous condo provided us with the best of both worlds. Top notch accommodations in the heart of the most beautiful place in PV. The people of Vallarta are so warm and welcoming and everyone has a smile to offer. You will experience that the moment you walk out the door of the unit. The staff was so very welcoming and they made us feel right at home the moment we got out of the cab. We were given a tour of our unit upon our arrival and we had to contain ourselves from the excitement of seeing our home away from home for the first time. The unit is stunningly beautiful and there is not one thing that we would change as far as amenities and location of this gorgeous condo! The views are spectacular!! The bedding is plush and so relaxing and the washer and dryer were an added bonus as it was wonderful to come home with everything clean and ready to be put away. The sound system is phenomenal! The pool is so beautiful and the grounds are spa like. The best restaurants in Vallarta are within walking distance and the markets are as well. The location is one where anyone can safely venture out on their own to shop, go for a run, hit the beach, or just stroll the beautiful streets and chat with the locals. It was the first time in Vallarta for my friends and after about 10 minutes of arriving in the condo, they were ready to book our next trip! Of course, that made me smile from ear to ear! They caught the "bug!" There were big hugs and a few tears when we said our goodbyes to Vallarta and the wonderful staff. We are ready to book for next year. Thank you for sharing your beautiful oasis with us~ Best Birthday ever for me and I will always be most grateful for your kindness.

                                            We were very disappointed when the condo we had rented for 3 years in El Molino de Agua was sold. Knowing we wanted to stay in this beautiful building we started looking at other condos to rent. We found Joseph and John’s place. It looked beautiful in the pictures and it was even lovelier when we arrived. The place was spectacular (the pictures don’t do it justice). The artwork is beautiful and the furnishings very high end. We enjoyed having a modern high tech kitchen and the bedrooms were extremely comfortable for 3 couples. We spent the week between Christmas and New Years here. New Years Eve we dined on the outdoor terrace and enjoyed a great view of the fireworks at midnight. PV outdid itself this year! The owners even supplied us with champagne flutes for our celebration. Restaurants we recommend for dinner include La Leche, Rio Grande, and El Arrayan, and for lunch; Tacon de Marlin and Burros on the Beach (great seafood nachos, guacamole, and fresh squeezed juice in 2 for 1 cocktails). We love the place so much we are considering coming back. John and Joseph were very easy to work with and very helpful. We are thankful they were willing to share their home with us. Happy New Year! Andy

                                            Owner response: A Happy New Year to you too Andy! We are so pleased that you and your party enjoyed your stay over New Years. We thank you for the kind words and a lovely review. What a perfect place to stay for a holiday celebration. We are glad that you mentioned that you found the unit comfortable for three adult couples. With everyone having their own private bedroom, bathroom, closets, televisions and separate individual air-conditioning controls, we find that most guests enjoy these comforts as good if not better than a hotel stay. Sounds as though you used all of the amenities of this three thousand plus square foot condo. The reviews of the restaurants are helpful for future guests. We enjoy most of your recommendations as well. We hope you do intend on being our rental guests in the future. Here are some other restaurants that we like when we are in PV and we would like to pass them along in case you would like to try them. Dinner, Trio, Teatro Limon, Archies Wok. Breakfast, Lunch and dinner, Daiquiri Dick’s and one of our favorite breakfast spot is Coco’s Kitchen. All of these restaurants have reviews on Trip Advisor web sites. As always, thank you for being our guest in our home away from home. Cheers, Joseph & John

                                            We could not have been happier with this property! The condo itself is perfectly spacious, tastefully decorated and has all of the high end updates you would expect. In addition to the great living space, the pool is one of the best in PV, and you definately can not beat the location. You are literally steps from some of the best restaurants and nightlife PV has to offer. AND you can watch the beautiful pacific sunset from the enormous outdor living space. I highly recommend this property - we have already booked a second trip! See you in PV!

                                            Owner response: Dear Edward and Paul, Thank you for the great review and kind words! Your rental contract is in, we are happy to have you return and stay at our place once again. What you have written captured what we also love about the unit and PV. The second time around only proves to be a better experience. You will already know what to expect, and enjoy your vacation at our home away from home even more. You can look forward to many more beautiful sunsets in your near future. Thank you again for your continued patronage :-) Best regards, Joseph and John

                                            This place is A+ in every way. Not only is the location ideal but the accommodations are gorgeous and John and Joseph are so easy to work with. We were given clear details as to what to do from the minute we left the airport so no guessing. The staff at the complex is friendly and helpful. Our trip just couldn't have been better. Our group consisted of 4 adults from 30s to 60s. We had no problems finding activities that appealed to all of us. We all enjoyed the Vallarta Food Tour which met right across the street from the complex. It was three hours of easy walking with lots of stops to sample various foods from the area. It also gives you a bit of history of the foods and PV. We dined out every night going twice to Joe Jack's Fish Shack. There are so many restaurants within walking distance that it's hard to decide where you want to go but we all enjoyed the above and La Palapa. We will definitely be back.

                                            Owner response: Dear Cheryl, Your review was very gracious and much appreciated. We are very glad that you appreciated the details in the welcome package as well as our home. It does take the guess work out of what to expect. We are glad that all of you found activities suited for all. Having guests like you and your family made it pleasurable for us to work with you also. We would be delighted to have you and your family return as our rental guests in the future to our home away from home. Once again, thank you for your patronage and looking forward to hearing from you in the near future. Best regards, Joseph and John

                                            Just an incredible vacation in an absolutely dream location! I have been to PV 8 times and I decided to bring two other couples of friends on their first visit to PV. This was the first time I rented a condo in PV and WOW did we strike it BIG!!! We were 3 couples in 3000 sq.ft of the most beautifully decorated condo I have ever been and on top of it all ,here we were facing the Pacific ocean with all it's splendour!! We had to pinch oursevles several times a day to make sure we were alive an actually living these incredible moments. We had wonderful "gourmet cooks" in our group and we made supper 4 out of 7 nights...dinning on the beautiful patio ...the kitchen is amazingly well equipped if you are into doing your own cooking, gas range, huge BBQ,accessories etc..We actually had our best suppers at the condo! The personnel at the security, the housekeepers, the grounds crew etc were all so friendly and professional. Carlos , the property manager , greeted us on arrival and was so helpful ,kind and professional etc.. The pool is amazing if you are into swimming, plenty of room to do your excercise! The building is extremely clean and the grounds are very impressive, a real botonical garden! The location of this building is a very big plus. It is in the heart of the old city ,right on the waterfront of the best beach ,Playa Los can't beat this. If you want to experience the life of the "rich and famous" this is the place! We were 3 couples living very comfortably in this condo and when you share together in all the costs it makes for a very luxurious vacation at a very affordable price! Of course everyone has to pitch in with the chores etc..:)!! The master bedroom is out of sight! We had a lottery amongst us to see who would get to sleep in this room!! This really beats the "all inclusive hotels etc.."Thank you so much Joseph and John for giving us the opportunity to experience your beautiful home and hope that we may return in the future! From Alain, Hélène, Claire,Donald, Marie and Martin from Canada!! Adios amigos!!

                                            Owner response: Dear Alain, Wow! For someone like you who has been to PV as many times as you have been and found your first condo rental experience at our home is to be considered the "coup de grâce" for you. It was very thoughtful of you to mention how pleased you were. We are pleased to know that you found the kitchen to be to your complete satisfaction. Sounds like you good folks took full advantage of the cooking amenities and experienced entertaining from the balcony and it's aesthetics. We loved the idea that you had a democratic system of having a lottery of who would stay in the master bedroom. You folks really know how to make your stay enjoyable and finding fun ideas to make everyone happy. We are simply delighted that you noticed all of the wonderful details regarding the property, etc. We hope that all of you will return to our home away from home in the near future. Thank you again, Alain, Hélène, Claire, Donald, Marie and Martin. Best regards, Joseph and John

                                            I saw the pictures before I got there, but when you walk in the door the and see how professionally decorated the condo is and the view from the terrace, it takes your breath away. Puerto Vallarta, has some of the best restaurants anywhere, but we didn't want to leave the condo. We ate every meal in except 4 for 8 days on the tereace, just trying to imagine living there. It was the most comfortable vacation I have ever had. I have stayed in Maui at the Four Seasons, but this condo truly must be the "best in the world'". In the past I stayed at the condos accrosss the street, 3 times because Molina was not there, and I hadn't been back for 7 years. Now that I have stayed at John and Josephs condo, I would never consider staying anywhere else. Everything about the condo, location, decorations, staff, security is superior. It kind of cramped my style since I always try to go to different countires, but now I can't wait to return to the condo. What an experience!!! I don't want to tell too many people about it, so it will be available for me. Must do the whale watching and dolphin swim. Cocos was great for breakfast, and John reccomended a restautant where the chef cooks a meal "just for you." All I can say is OUTSTANDING! Can't wait to return.

                                            Owner response: Dear Dee, Thank you for your most generous review of our condo. We are happy that you were able to really feel at home and enjoy the unit. It is always nice to sit on the terrace and take all of the scenery in while eating meals. How kind of you to compare our condo to The Four Seasons, Maui. Wow! What a great compliment! Now you know why we call it "our home away from home". You are more than welcome to stay at our condo as a rental guest anytime it is available. Looks like you will be another return guest. Look forward to working out your travel details for your next trip. Thank you again! John and Joseph

                                            We stayed at La Iguana del Molino for 2 weeks during the Christmas holidays and it was wonderful. The pictures are accurate but it's so much more than what can be put in pictures or writing, it was home away from home! John and Joseph were great to deal with and have all the information you could need in a binder. The property manager, and all the staff were very friendly. The location was perfect, we walked to everything from beach clubs, shopping, and restaurants. Every day we seemed to try a new beach club and found we liked the "Sea Monkey", which was right out the door, it had cheap drinks and great food. There were so many restaurants to choose from but some of the ones we loved were Pipi's, Jacks Fish Shack, Margaritaville, and Dacquiri Dicks are only a few. Every morning in front of Sea Monkeys there is a vendor that sells fresh pastries, they are so good! The bbq was perfect for dinners on the patio, especially New Years Eve, we did a steak dinner and then watched the amazing fireworks from the patio that lasted for over half an hour. We went to the Puerto Vallarta Zoo and would recommend this trip! We fed a giraffe carrots from our lips, we had monkeys on our shoulders, and even got to hold a four week old lion cub. We had Jose, a vendor on the beach, to arrange a private van to take us to the zoo which was great as we had a guided tour of the town and learned many interesting facts about P.V. before heading to the zoo. The pool is very large and has a swim up bar and was never busy. We didn't use the pool much as the sun doesn't really hit it until later in the day but was great for a quick dip before heading up to the condo. We had an amazing time and only wish we were still there!

                                            Owner response: Wow! Sounds like you and your family had a really great time in PV. You picked one of the prime times of the year to stay at the condo, Christmas and New Year. You are welcome to stay at our place anytime. Thanks for the kind words about your experience with us. We will make sure and pass on to the support staff and property manger that you thought they were nice. We would welcome you and your family anytime as rental guests. Sincerely, John and Joseph

                                            Planned a vacation for my family and a friend to celebrate two graduations and a birthday and wanted all the conveniences of home within steps of the beach and pool. Molino de Agua - La Iguana was all we wanted and more. Easy cab ride from airport and the location was walking distance to everything and on premises personnel to assist. First night sunset from our patio/balcony - taco cart dinners, parasailing, and poolside everyday. Thank you for this wonderful experience in your lovely PV home. We will come again I am sure.

                                            Owner response: Dear Susan, Heaven is a great poetic description portraying what most of our guests including us would certainly agree with. Thank you for a great review and we would be delighted to have you and your party return to our slice of Paradise. We hope that you will have fond memories of your stay at La Iguana del Molino. We are glad that you took advantage of parasailing on the beach. Even though we have yet to dare to partake in the recreational kiting activity, we love to watch the parasailing from the grounds and our balcony. Parasailing and the rental of surf boards, jet skies are all part of the allure of having a beach front property. Everything is in walking distance. Thank you for mentioning the conveniences of our home. The personnel that manage our property and the condominium complex management including twenty-four hour security and gardeners are truly top drawer. Thank you again for choosing our home away from home in Puerto Vallarta. ~Joseph and John

                                            Stop looking anywhere else!!! I have been to Mexico numerous times and have always enjoyed my stay....however nothing like this! I went down with my Mother and her friend and we stayed for one week. From the moment I booked and spoke with John and Joseph on the phone, I knew we were in good hands....and wow...were we ever taken care of!! So much so, that I won't be staying anywhere else in Mexico!!! The condo was perfect! From the ocean breeze blowing flower pedals through the condo, to the people watching along the Malecon, to the kitchen and BBQ, the amazing patio (which we spent half our time on), to the location (PERFECT), to the staff, to the comfortable beds, the limited people at the pool, the beautiful gardening, the recommendations of glorious restaurants, this place is need to look anywhere else. Oh yeah...and to make it even better, once you walk out the parking lot (in the back) there is a fantastic spa ($50 for 90 minutes massage), what a deal! The place is called Venus Sunshine Massage. Anyhow, good luck on your search! I hope you seriously consider John and Joseph's second home as much as we did. Thanks guys for all the wonderful memories! Hope to meet you one day!

                                            Owner response: Hola Jennifer, Looks like you will be long time rental guests at our home away from home. The condo is open for you and your guests anytime it is available. The definition of Shangri-La has been redefined. This is not an imaginary remote paradise on earth after all. It really does exist and the word appears to be getting out about our unit in paradise. What an extraordinary review! We are so pleased that you had such a great experience. Thank you for mentioning the ocean breeze blowing around the generous flower pedals of the bougainvillea bushes on the terraces and throughout the unit. It reminded me how every morning when you get out of bed, it’s like a carpet of red and pink flowers that have magically energized the bedroom and throughout the unit. This is truly a tropical paradise like no other. The good folks that staff the place are just fantastic. The gardeners are always busy making the place amazing. You folks were so nice to deal with. Something tells me that we will have an opportunity to meet in the future. I think you said it all… If you want to have a great vacation in Puerto Vallarta, a.k.a. “paradise”, this is the place to stay. Thank you again :-) ~John and Joseph

                                          Year Purchased: 2010

                                          About the owner: My partner and I have been living in Chicago for more than a decade, and felt the need to escape the blustering winter months and find refuge in one of our favorite vacation destinations: Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. We always feel right at home every time we land in Vallarta. This Pacific coastal city has managed to keep its charming colonial feeling amid the modern developments. It has the perfect balance of fabulous weather, culture, entertainments and world-class renowned restaurants. In 2001 my partner mentioned a wonderful little hotel in the heart of the romantic zone called Hotel Molino de Agua. He had stayed at this place in the late 80?s and thought I would like it. We packed our bags and headed to Hotel Molino de Agua with friends. We thought this was one of the most tranquil and peaceful places that we have ever vacationed. Years later, after traveling extensively around the world, we wanted to return to the jungle enclave in the middle of the Zona Romantica. To my amazement, surprise and shock, my Google search revealed Residencies Molino de Agua, a brand new high-rise condominium development, instead of Hotel Molino de Agua. This is where we first came in contact with AMPI realtor Taniel Chemsian with the firm Timothy Real Estate Group. Taniel confirmed that indeed Hotel Molino de Agua was sold and in it’s place were the final stages of construction of the stunning condominium Residencias Molino de Agua . A year or so passed before my partner and I decided to play with the idea of finding a home away from home to retire and Molino de Agua was the place.

                                          Why the Owner Chose Molino de Agua:
                                          It is centrally located. It is walking distance to restaurants; shopping; beach; local markets etc.
