Property description



My first visit to Puerto Vallarta was in the early 90's, in the middle of August at a timeshare resort in the hotel zone. I fell in love with PV right away. I even like the heat and humidity that goes along with summer. It was ten years before I had the luxury of experiencing Puerto Vallarta in high season....and that really sealed the deal. A couple of years ago, I saw the Grand Venetian complex being built right in between the two timeshare resorts where I typically would stay. The hotel zone is my favorite location because that is where one can get the very best views of the town, the lights along the Malecon, as well as the mountains behind and the vast and beautiful Bay of Banderas. We had been thinking about buying our own condo for quite a few years and we were thrilled when we were finally able to do so. We are from the East coast of the United States....baby boomers who are on the cusp of retirement. We are fulfilling our dream by having a beautiful condo on the beach in Puerto Vallarta


Why the Owner Chose Hotel Zone

Each year when we would try to decide on our vacation destination, the decision usually was Puerto Vallarta because it is such an easy place to vacation. It is small enough to learn the streets in a short amount of time, but large enough to have lots of variety. A bus to Centro takes less than 15 minutes from the hotel zone. We tried timeshares in various locations from the South end of PV, to the hotel zone and up into Nuevo Vallarta. We typically would return to the hotel zone because of its convenient location to groceries, shopping, cinemas, banks and transportation. We can walk to the boat excursions and even walk to Centro or the romantic zone in about 40 minutes. When we saw the Grand Venetian complex being built in the heart of the hotel zone, we made the decision to purchase two condos there. We own a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo of about 2000 sq feet which we use exclusively for rental. We also purchased a 3 bedroom, 4 bath condo which we use as for ourselves and occasional rentals. Grand Venetian has location, location, location.....not to mention many amenities. The infinity pools are beautiful; most condos have private jacuzzis on the terrace; the rooms are spacious and very functional. But what really sold us was the incredible view of the town of PV from our condo. It is breathtaking 24 hours a day.....During the day, we enjoy looking at the town with the magnificent Sierra Madre mountain backdrop. We watch the boats cross the bay; the dolphins and even whales; birds sailing and diving for fish; parasailers and jet skiers enjoying an adventurous activity...and as the sun goes down and the lights of town go on.....the night view is nothing short of spectacular.


The Unique Benefits of this Condo

The Grand Venetian resort has spacious, manicured grounds and is located right on the beach. There is no crowds from the Malecon or people from Centro. There are multiple pools, all with views of the town, beach, mountains and the bay. All terraces have outstanding views and most terraces have private jacuzzis. We watch all of the bay life and at night we watch the fireworks from the Marigalante as well as other spots around the bay. The Grand Venetian has a spacious lobby; poolside lounges, tables, chairs and lounging beds. There is 24 hour security; underground parking; a movie room and game room and business center in each of the 3 towers. The gym is well stocked with the best of fitness equipment. We enjoy the privacy and exclusion of an upscale, high end property, but we are close to shopping, transportation and many entertainment venues. One can walk from the Grand Venetian all the way to Centro on the beach or along the main road. We are walking distance to no less than 5 supermarkets (including Sam's, Walmart and Costco). We can walk to two different cinemas and large shopping complexes. The boat marina for the large cruise ships and day cruises are also within walking distance.

Grand Venetian has the excellent balance of luxury and convenience.

Keywords: Puerto Vallarta is strategically located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains, on the Pacific ocean's beautiful Bay of Banderas. The landscape combines a mix of mountains, jungle, beach and one of the largest bays in the world, and many spectacular species of wildlife. For a beach resort, Puerto Vallarta is even more special because it has retained the local architecture and culture. There are so many sights from which to choose, whether it be the malecon, or promenade, lined with bronze art, sand art, art galleries, churches, restaurants and shops. The people are very friendly and helpful and the environment is very, very safe. The climate is outstanding. You can expect sunshine every day and only short interruptions of tropical rain showers during the months of July through October. The sunsets are absolutely incredible, setting the stage for an intimate dinner, followed by some outstanding nightlife choices.

The Grand Venetian resort is strategically situated in the hotel z

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: My first visit to Puerto Vallarta was in the early 90's, in the middle of August at a timeshare resort in the hotel zone. I fell in love with PV right away. I even like the heat and humidity that goes along with summer. It was ten years before I had the luxury of experiencing Puerto Vallarta in high season....and that really sealed the deal.

We had been thinking about buying our own condo for quite a few years and we were thrilled when we were finally able to do so. We are from the East coast of the United States....baby boomers who are on the cusp of retirement. We are fulfilling our dream by having a beautiful condo on the beach in Puerto Vallarta Initially, we purchased a two bedroom condo at Grand Venetian. Then when we decided to spend more time in PV, we kept the two bedroom condo for our guests and we moved to a larger condo. We had so much success with the two bedroom condo that we decided to buy the one bedroom condo that is located adjacent to the two bedroom condo. We have found this condo to also be a bit hit with our guests

Why the Owner Chose Hotel Zone:
Why the Owner Chose Hotel Zone Each year when we would try to decide on our vacation destination, the decision usually was Puerto Vallarta because it is such an easy place to vacation. It is small enough to learn the streets in a short amount of time, but large enough to have lots of variety. A bus to Centro takes less than 15 minutes from the hotel zone. We tried timeshares in various locations from the South end of PV, to the hotel zone and up into Nuevo Vallarta. We typically would return to the hotel zone because of its convenient location to groceries, shopping, cinemas, banks and transportation. We can walk to the boat excursions and even walk to Centro or the romantic zone in about 40 minutes. When we saw the Grand Venetian complex being built in the heart of the hotel zone, we made the decision to purchase two condos there. We own a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo of about 2000 sq feet which we use exclusively for rental. We have the adjoining one bedroom one bath condo which we use exclusively for rental guests. We have a huge 3 bedroom, 3 bath condo and we live in our spacious penthouse condo in the same Tower so that we can give personal attention to all of our guests.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The location at Grand Venetian is as good as it gets! We can walk to supermarkets, malls, movie theaters.....even the little hidden casinos once you know where they are located. I love taking my two little chihuahuas (Taco and Belle) to the beach twice a day....this is so convenience because Grand Venetian is right on a very, very wide stretch of beach. We love the view from Tower 1000.....which overlooks the bay towards the 24/7 view of the town of Puerto Vallarta with the magnificent backdrop of the Sierra Madre mountains. We are less than 10 minutes to the airport and about 10 minutes ride to the center of PV.....where we can walk the fabulous Malecon. Nightly, the malecon is bustling with activitiy. The people watching is excellent but there are many nights where one can enjoy a free concert, or an acrobatic show. In the square in front of the Cathedral there are often local bands who play and the locals come there for dancing under the stars. There are various community theaters that are so easily accessible and affordable. The new Teatro is excellent with many excellent, professional artists performing. The choices of restaurants, spas and various activities is vast. It is very easy to get "involved" in this wonderful community where the locals and other North American visitors and residents blend together so well. Safety and security in Puerto Vallarta is excellent......much safer than just about any where else in the world I have visited.
