Bucerias cottage 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, fitness center, and a rooftop palapa 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. All linens are newly bought and luxurious. 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 5-10 minute walk away. What makes it the best in the Bay of Banderas? The grade is mild 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.

The owner was very helpful answering our questions. She provided a book of information about the condo and places of interest in Bucerias. The unit is clean, bright and has good appliances: stove, fridge, washer and drier, tv. There are good quality sheets and towels in the unit. A pay-as-you-go cell phone was a nice bonus. The pool was large and clean. We would certainly recommend the property to friends.

Owner response: Thank you, Warren and Diana. Looking forward to having you next year. Thanks for booking in advance!
So convenient. Felt right at home.
So convenient. Felt right at home.
A lovely condo with all the comforts of home, plus the beautiful views and access to the beach which of course, we can't get at home! The beach really is beautiful and expansive. You can walk down the beach to some excellent restaurants with tables right out on the sand and the ocean just footsteps away! The town is also lovely to walk through. Make sure to check out the amazing architecture, particularly down the side streets. Pass all the restaurants and shops and cross the charming little bridge to the outdoor market. All this is in easy reach by foot. Not to mention the rooftop patio and the beautiful pool in the condo complex which our kids loved! There were no other kids around when we happened to go, but that didn't stop our kids from pronouncing that they wanted to move there and never leave! This nicely decorated, well-appointed condo with two baths(!) gets an excellent rating because of the convenience and because the property manager, Silvia, is truly lovely, speaks English very well, and will address your every need. We felt well taken care of and very much at home.

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 Cottage:
Perla del Mar is not a big, fancy resort. It is a friendly, personable 24 unit complex for people that know how to relax. Within the complex, which is very well maintained, it has a big pool, a fitness center, 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 5-10 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 level 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!
