Bucerias condo description

Its so hard to find that perfect vacation place, that as soon as we found it, we had to buy it -- and share it with you! Condo Curiel is an airy, light-filled and peaceful 2 bedroom/2 bathroom respite within the quiet, well-maintained Perla del Mar -- complete with gorgeous pool and a rooftop patio with amazing views of the ocean and the mountains. This is also one of the few units at Perla del Mar that has nice views from the condo itself.

All of this is so well-situated in Zona Dorada -- a few blocks from the best beach on the Bay of Banderas, less than a block from restaurants, convenience store, bank, pharmacy and taxi stand. But it is not a busy, downtown area either -- downtown Bucerias is a 20-30 minute walk away, so you sleep well at night!

The condo itself has a fully equipped kitchen with an open concept layout allowing the gorgeous Mexican sunlight to bounce everywhere. In fact, most of the 'walls' to the outside are made of glass patio doors. There is a master bedroom with an en suite bathroom and a brand new king size bed (really two twins fitted together with a special connector and king size bedding -- you can't find king size mattresses in Mexico!) The second bedroom has two double beds. There is a second bathroom just outside this bedroom. Both bedrooms have lovely views and sliding glass patio doors that open to let the ocean breeze in. For your convenience, there is a washer and dryer in the condo itself.

There is a deck off of the dining room with an outside table and chairs -- a great place to enjoy your morning coffee (yes, there is a coffeemaker) while gazing at the pool.

For lounging in the condo, we have a large (38'?) flat screen tv, DVD player, Star Satellite TV service (if you desire certain channels in particular, ask and we will try to accommodate), an mp3 player (uses Phillips Fidelio app, and wireless internet access (which can be a little slow).

And finally, a short 2 flights of stairs above Condo Curiel is a large patio with palapas and incredible views of the mountains and sea. Its a wonderful place to have dinner or watch the sunset.

The beach is a pleasant 7-10 minute walk away. What makes it the best in the Bay of Banderas? The grade is mild (sometimes even flat if you catch the tide right) so you can walk along it comfortably for miles in either direction. The sand is the fine and golden kind that feels great under the feet. And the there are plenty of waves to play in but they aren't too scary big. Don't miss a chance to see the beautiful sun set behind the ocean. We provide you with beach towels, beach toys, and a rolling cart to take everything comfortably to and from the beach.

My husband and I used to rent places to stay from VRBO. We tried to include all the things we wished people had included (such as a cell phone for which you can buy minutes at the corner store), so if we didn't mention something, just shoot us an email and ask! Maybe we already have it, or if we think its a good idea, maybe we will get it. We also have a wonderful local manager, Silvia, that can help make your stay comfortable while you are there. She would be happy to make arrangements for maid service or other services you may like.

                      Just a few blocks to the beach. Right on the edge of a colorful and lively village with lots to see and great restaurants, coffee shops and bars. Easy and very inexpensive busrides away from Puerto Vallarta and Sayulita and other local towns.


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: Darcy, David, Ariel and Benjy happily reside in Madison, WI except sometimes we get too cold!

                      Why the Owner Chose Bucerias:
                      Spent Christmas vacation here as a family in December of 2010, fell in love with Bucerias, and then with this particular condo, nearby beach and overall location -- walkable to everything! So convenient to vacation without a car.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      Perla del Mar is not a big, fancy resort. It is a friendly, personable 24 unit complex for people that know how to relax (or want to learn!). Within the well-maintained complex, there is a big pool, rooftop patio and a pool table within the small complex. Although it is a quiet area there are a few restaurants within a block and an Oxxo (a convenience store like 7-11) right on the corner, along with a bank and a pharmacy. We love to wander around this colorful, interesting and friendly town, where we can walk to anything and shop at the local markets. And the nearby beach (a 7-10 minute walk) was kid-approved for not having sharp pointy things in the sand or while wading in. And the surf can be fun, but not crazy huge, scary waves. The parents liked that the beach had a fairly mild grade for nice long walks in either direction. Buses and taxis are available for adventures into Puerto Vallarta, rainforests, Sayulita, and other beautiful points north on Riviera Nayarit. Everything we love in a vacation in one place!
