The Space
A unique place for unique experiences.

Penthouse Dreams is the perfect place for unique and memorable experiences, like a very private Jacuzzi bath under the moonlight or a relaxing siesta on the hanging bed with total privacy and solitude (except for the dolphins splashing below!). Or a sunrise breakfast with nothing above you but sky. And it´s all in total privacy – there are no direct views from nearby properties or streets onto the penthouse. Only 15 Minutes from Puerto Vallarta Air port.

Overlooking the marina waterfront in the upscale, gated Nuevo Vallarta community, the penthouse’s unique location and design guarantee a memorable stay not possible in other condo or villa rentals. PenthouseDreams is one of the best vacation rental deals in the Puerto Vallarta area. The large one bedroom condo has panoramic views of Puerto Vallarta, the mountains, marina, canal and El Tigre golf course, and partial ocean view. Also direct view of dolphin and sea lion shows at Vallarta Adventures.
We with many good reviews.

PenthouseDreams has a huge terrace with an entertaining area with large dining table and chairs, a king size bedroom with air con, fans, WiFi and a full bathroom with a spacious shower.

The beach is 4 minutes walking away.Shops, 50 restaurants, taxis and buses are one to five minutes on foot. Ideal area for cycling, jogging, beach walks, boating, fishing, etc. Quiet and friendly neighbourhood.

A Review from Mexico Between Imagination and Reality
By Raseljka Kmic

To be completely honest I must say, as a European who has never been to this part of the world, I came to Mexico carrying prejudices, assumptions, ideas and images in my head which belong to the world of imagination. This abstract world is often created through a variety of stereotypes which are imprinted onto our subconscious under influence of various media. Movies, especially from our early childhood, play the most important role in development of our imagination. I am sure that, in the imaginary world of an average European, Mexico is all about tequila, men with big mustaches, sombreros and vast deserts mottled with big, green cactuses.

Frankly, my own preconceptions were not far from those simple, childish scenes that I often imagined while reading comic books and watching Hollywood movies. Even though I did not expect Mexico to be a movie set of the final scene from The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, I did not know anything about its cities. Upon arriving in this huge country, I was surprised and amazed how developed, modern and urban it is. After visiting interesting cities like San Cristobal, Oaxaca and Guanajuato, I packed my bags heading west to the small city that lies directly on the sandy shores of Pacific Ocean – Puerto Vallarta.

Paradise on Earth

I arrived early in the morning while the light was still soft and mellow, falling gently on the mountains which surround Vallarta like a guarding fortress. When I stepped off the bus I still could not see the ocean, but suddenly, for a second or two, it felt like home. It was warm, the air was salty and I felt a pleasant breeze on my skin that reminded me of the Croatian summer wind we call Maestral. Though there were plenty of cabs waiting in front of the station, I caught a city bus which took me to my destination. The Penthouse Dolphin Dreams is a beautiful two floor penthouse situated in the heart of Nuevo Vallarta – a residential resort community about twenty minutes north of Puerto Vallarta, in the center point of the Banderas Bay.

The owner of the property was waiting for me when I arrived. From the first moment he made me feel very welcome and relaxed. Dana is an interesting man, who has traveled the world and lived throughout the United Kingdom. Eight years ago he decided to make his home here in what he calls, “Paradise on Earth.” Even though he has adapted easily to this Mexican beach style of life, learning to surf and paddle board almost every day, he is still a typical English gentleman with a recognizable English sense of humor. After a few minutes in his company, I realized that those stereotypes about cold, distanced and reserved islanders definitely don’t apply to him. As we were sitting in his large first floor open living room having a chat, I observed a whole variety of exotic birds.

For the first time in my life I saw pelicans sailing through the sky in perfect formation like a fleet of army planes. Later I learned that due to its geographical position, this area is a perfect location for bird watching as it is home to nearly 350 species in varied ecosystems and habitats. Dana informed me that this area used to be a swamp, which explains its rich fauna.

The vision of Nuevo Vallarta as a luxury and spacious hotel zone was a project initiated by the federal government over ten years ago. Now, Nuevo Vallarta is a residence for luxury villas and estates with tropical gardens lining the ocean canals, each with its own private docking pier.
Penthouse in the SkyDSC_1785

After refreshing drinks and short informative chat, I decided to discover more about this amazing penthouse – my home during the next ten days. The position of the apartment is perfect, occupying the top two floors of the building which looms over Vallarta’s famous Dolphin Adventure Park. Most of the first level is a spacious living room extending outward to a terrace for its entire length. It provides a spectacular open view to the canals, jungle plants, blue mountain outlines and beautiful sailboats resting quietly on the still water. Sitting there, I had a feeling of calm stillness as if I were contemplating someplace far away from civilization. The living room is connected to a functional, well equipped kitchen, making this whole space even more cavernous and commodious.

The design of the first level as a whole represents a modern and contemporary approach to style. A brave contrast of colors is apparent between the large white leather couch and the deep red walls. The earthy brown kitchen is aptly chosen to appease and balance those contrasts.

One of my favorite things – a small island across from the stove – is ideal for hanging around with friends and/or group cooking. Situated at the end of the hall are two cozy bedrooms with double beds. Painted in sky blue, with their own bathrooms and small balconies, they provide you with a beautiful southern view of tropical gardens dominated by tall, elegant palms.

Although I did not see half of it, I was already very excited about this place and eager to discover what was waiting for me on the higher level. We climbed the spiral, wooden stairs leading to the penthouse. I must say I was impressed with what I saw! The living space is almost completely organized on a large, wide terrace. The only closed units are the bedroom and bathroom situated on its southern side. This space is really something unique and exceptional. I thought the view from the lower living room was unbeatable, but I was definitely wrong. This was even more stunning. There is nothing above you but a clear blue sky. You can see the whole panoramic view covering 280 degrees.

The biggest asset of this apartment’s orientation is the possibility of viewing an extraordinary attraction. Every day, just under your terrace, you can observe dolphins surfacing or watch a lions playing in the water or lying on the rocks enjoying the sun. I can’t explain how happy and excited this made me feel; strong memories of my early childhood daydreaming about swimming with dolphins in the vast ocean. Everything was just magical! Even though this space is unquestionably decorated as modern and contemporary, it has that rustic touch with its selection of natural materials and decorative objects like wall lamps and handcrafted articles. The roof of the terrace, supported by rugged wooden pilings and dried palm leaves, creates an exotic and dreamy atmosphere. This area is all about hedonism: you can cook outside in the small kitchen, watch herons at night while lying in the big hot tub or take a nap on the massive, wooden hanging bed in the shadow of palm leaves.
