Idyllic Apartment & Setting
"As the photos indicate, the apartment is stunning. Within a beautifully designed complex of three buildings, this apartment is in the center. When we instructed a taxi driver where to go, he said “oh, the nicest one.” The building is directly on the beach. The lobby is an open design, and you can see the ocean as soon as you step in. Marty’s apartment is the most ideal location within the center building. The master bedroom provides a view of the ocean and the city lights, while still being entirely private. The balconies are all beautiful, but the primary balcony deserves particular mention. We planned our days in PV around where we wanted to be for sunset. As other reviewers have noted, unlike other rentals, Marty furnished the apartment with high end products, which are all well-maintained. The throws on the bed are cashmere, there are flatscreen tvs in every room. The kitchen is fantastic and well-equipped. It is ideal for cooking what you bring back from the nearby supermarket (5-10 minute walk). We used the blender to make smoothies each morning.
Marty was consistently in contact, and notably consistently patient. In retrospect, the answers to a few of our questions were fairly self-evident (he has clear labels for the wifi connections), but his emails were friendly, prompt and polite. He provided wonderful recommendations for restaurants and activities.
The staff around the complex are always helpful and never intrusive. When in the pool we were occasionally politely asked if we wanted to purchase a drink (and have it brought out to us). The staff by the entrance called us taxis, which always came within minutes. I was worried about getting a taxi the morning we left, since we needed to get to the airport by 5 am. I told the staff the afternoon before, and they had a taxi waiting for us at 4:30 am.
When you can tear yourself away from the apartment, the setting is stunning and the city is a lot of fun. There is parasailing on the beach directly behind the complex. As other reviewers have mentioned, there also is a marine turtle shelter within view of the balcony. The zoo, botanical garden and boardwalk are all worth visits. It is not a coincidence that so many people who have stayed here return. I intend to be one of them."

"This is a beautiful and spacious condo right on the beach with incredible views of the ocean and mountains.The condo itself has a beautiful wrap around balcony with a cool ocean breeze and an world class view of the sunset. Additionally, there are plenty of activities to do on the beach and the town center is just a short and cheap bus ride away. I stayed wit a group of my friends in late May and the weather was clear, sunny, and warm thus the pools and nearest beach were perfect for soaking up the sun and cooling off. I highly recommend anyone looking for a relaxing, culturally enriching, and naturally awe-inspiring vacation. Puerto Vallarta is an amazing beach city and this property is an ideal way to experience the best of what it has to offer."

"When we arrived in Puerto Vallarta, we found everything as described in your material. The condo was fairly well equipped, although we would have preferred a toaster oven rather than just a toaster. Eating utensils were very basic while dishes and cooking pots were plentiful. We were aware before we came that it would not be quite like home!! When we discovered a small problem with the bathroom tap, I called Hector and we arranged for him to come the following day. He came when promised and the repair was done. We never did have hot water during our stay, lukewarm was the best it got. The cleaning person was also very good but I think we left things in good shape each time we knew she was coming as well. From the balcony we were able to enjoy sea views and fireworks each night. We had no problems with the hotel and were able to use all their facilities including the laundry room. They were occasionally short of lounge chairs in the beach shady area. The unit was best suited for two as the sofa in the living room was not too comfortable for sleeping adults."
