Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 2-5)

MY WONDERFUL OCEANFRONT PENTHOUSE, which I have named Penthouse Of The Dolphins, is directly on the water overlooking the Malecon.

IT IS LOCATED in the middle of Downtown Puerto Vallarta two blocks from the main plaza, Plaza Principal, and because of that is walking distance to virtually every shop, restaurant and attraction that Puerto Vallarta has to offer.

Its perfect for parties of up to five people, and of course is completely air-conditioned. Our building is 4 stories and has both elevator and stairway access. Penthouse Of The Dolphins is located on the 4th floor as is the swimming pool.

THE VIEW IS FABULOUS, looking south all the way down the coast to Cabo Corrientes and north all the way to Punta Mita, the northernmost point of Banderas Bay. The dolphins delight in swimming directly in front of my wraparound terrazas every day (hence the name 'Penthouse Of The Dolphins'), and early in the morning the local oyster divers collect their day’s catch on the rich reef in the crystal blue waters directly in front of my home. With its abundant underwater sea life, snorkeling and swimming are unsurpassed in this area.

BOTH BEDROOMS HAVE OCEANFRONT VIEWS, and the sunsets are truly amazing. If you are like me, you will spend both mornings on my main terrace, drinking your coffee and eating your breakfast watching the divers work and seeing the various seabirds hunt for their morning meal, and your evenings eating dinner at my handmade dining table, that is situated outside under the covered balcony. You will delight taking in the 180-degree view of the ocean and coastline from one end of the bay to the other. Every night there is a fireworks display that is mounted from the Spanish galleon named the Marigalante, and usually the ship passes about 500 feet away from my terrazas when it starts its show.

There Are 2 King-size Bedrooms each with its own connected bathroom, and there is also a third guest bathroom complete with its own shower. All of the bathrooms are all hand-crafted in marble. Both bedrooms have Flat screen cable TV/DVD.

The Washer and Dryer are both located inside the condo.

English speaking Managers and staff.

WE ALSO HAVE Free Wi-Fi High Speed Internet, so just bring your laptop and connect through your wireless connection and you are ready to go surf the Internet at no charge anytime of the day or night.

HAND HEWN GRANITE countertops accent the custom designed kitchen, which is complete and has all the amenities to make preparation of meals a delight. UV Filtered water, Microwave, Blender, Coffee maker, 6 Burner gas stove, Large side by side refrigerator and dishwasher are all there, and various spices are always on hand.

THE SWIMMING POOL is located on the roof of the building next to my condo, so just walk out the front door, take 30 steps and you will be standing next to the pool, and the water is always warm and the view is unforgettable.

Parking is Secured under the building, as my condo has the only underground parking in the city center, and the building has 24-hour security personnel to serve you.

WE ALSO HAVE ONE of the best restaurants in all of Puerto Vallarta located on the ground floor of our building facing the beach on the new Malecon. Its name is VITEA, and you will be delighted when you have your lunch or dinner there. It is truly a 4 star restaurant and believe me, their Margaritas are the BEST in town!

THINGS TO DO!! Virtually every water sport is available for you here in Puerto Vallarta. Also, there are horseback rides that take you back into the jungle where you will see waterfalls and flocks of parrots flying overhead. Golf is a major attraction here with several world class courses. There are canopy tours in the jungle, you can visit the set of 'Terminator', and you can also swim with the dolphins, race mini cars and go to the local Seaworld, where the kids will have a great time. There are concerts every night by local artists in the main plaza, flea markets galore and special events where the local people from areas outside of Puerto Vallarta bring their local food and wares for you to taste and buy. There are numerous fabulous nightclubs and discos that are open until 4 in the morning, so you can dance the night away every night and never go to the same place twice.

A note about Puerto Vallarta beaches; beaches are not always completely sandy. Although I cannot guarantee that the beach directly in front of our building will be completely sandy upon your visit, there are always plenty of sandy beaches for everyone within a block of our building.

PLEASE NOTE: When you are checking the availability calendar, if PENTHOUSE OF THE DOLPHINS Is not available for your desired dates, please look at my other wonderful home named HOME OF THE DOLPHINS because it may be available for the dates that you want. It is located just one floor below Penthouse Of The Dolphins on the 3rd floor and is simply fabulous! Its listing number is 20700.

About The Owner

Hi, I'm Michel Rubini. the very happy owner of Penthouse Of The Dolphins. I am a musician by trade, and I have been playing piano since I was 3 years old. I came to Puerto Vallarta in 2000 and fell in love with it immediately. I have been blessed with the good fortune to be able to live here with the wonderful Mexican people and share in their relaxed style of living, where everything slows down just a notch or two from the “hurry up” pace of America. To be able to sit on my terrace and view the ocean and listen to the sound of the birds and waves is a wonderfully relaxing experience that I look forward to every morning that I am here. I am very happy to be able to share my little piece of Heaven with you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Aloha, Michel

The Owner purchased this condo in 2008

Why The Owner chose Centro

When I arrived at my future home, walked through the entrada of the building and looked out and saw the azure blue waters of the Pacific and the incredible view of Banderas Bay right in front of me, I fell in love immediately. Being in the center of this wonderful town, I knew that this was the best location in all of Puerto Vallarta. I couldn't resist it.

What makes this condo unique

I Found Out that I could be just as secluded as I wanted as our building is very quiet, or I could enjoy a bounty of cultural and ethnic delights just by stepping outside. It was just up to me to decide what I would do on any given day, be a sun worshiper on the beach or at the pool, or join in the party that is always going on somewhere in this wonderful old colonial town. The views from my terrazas are unsurpassed, I can see the tourists strolling on the Malecon and I can also look out to the Pacific and see whales, dolphins, and even the oyster divers who like to work directly in front of home here.

Great condo, great location!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful condo. I would highly recommend it for couples or a family.

We stayed for 7 nights. I would like to thank the owner for booking us last minute. This unit made are vacation. The pool area is great and you are very secure in the building. Both bedrooms were large as well as the bathrooms. Very nicely furnished. The balcony had incredible views of the ocean and the boardwalk. The location of the condo could not be any better. It is dead center in the middle of everything great about downtown Puerto Vallarta.

We would definitely rent again.

Beautiful home, perfect location and views!

  • 5 of 5

Greetings, Michel,

We had a wonderful time in Puerto Vallarta, and your home couldn't have been more beautiful! Our accommodations and amenities, the views, and the people working in the building were so very friendly and helpful when we had a question or needed information. We were so impressed by the quality of the delicious food in the restaurants, all of which were within walking distance (we did not rent or need a car, simply took a taxi if necessary for longer excursions ). We ate very well! Our favorite restaurants were: Vitea, Bistro Teresa and Joe-Jacks.

My morning runs along the Malecon were great, as long as I did it early enough, before the heat set in.

So, thank you for sharing your lovely and very comfortable home with us! Our visit was one we will remember with great appreciation and delight!

Tom and Jill

We had a brilliant time! Your home is fabulously authentic & beautiful. Thank you for sharing it with us. Sassia was also particularly kind by offering late checkout. A nice wee touch. Thanks again Michel. It was amazing. Would be delighted to share it with Our community (by Nextdoor App!) if you like?

Stellar property - perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome place, and I can't imagine a better location - it's as smack dab in the middle of the Malecon as can be, and directly on the ocean. And not only this unit - which was beautiful - but the whole building - just meticulously maintained and the whole staff from the security guys to the cleaners - wonderful people. LOVED the painting in the living room of the little boy angel peering in...all in all - stellar place and would & will recommend it to others.
