Bienvenidos from Paradise! Shangri-la is a luxury, beach-front, gated condo complex in the upscale Marina Vallarta area. We are on the 7th floor in Tower 4, with view down to a 1-acre pool, the ocean, and across to downtown Puerto Vallarta. An elevator opens directly into your luxury 2,500 sf, recently renovated, painted, and fully furnished vacation condo. Relax on the 500 sf terrace, or enjoy a margarita at the on-site cantina restaurant, swim-up bar, or beach palapa. Venturing outside Shangri-La, you will find Vallarta Marina across the street, with a wide array of restaurants. Or, hop in a cab or bus for a 10-15 minute ride to downtown Puerto Vallarta and the Zona Romantica.

About Marion Nystuen
Thank you for considering Shangri-La for your vacation rental. We recently purchased this home for our retirement, but we still have a few more years to work before coming down here to enjoy paradise on a full time basis! In the meantime....Mi Casa es Su casa!
Why Marion Nystuen chose Marina Vallarta
We purchased this property in May and have spent 5 months renovating and updating. The entire 2,500 sf unit has been repainted and equipped with new lighting, furniture, an outdoor gas grill, and electronics, which include large screen TVs in living room, master bedroom, and guest room. We know you will enjoy a new king-size Sealy Posture-Pedic mattress in the master bedroom. The guest room is also equipped with a king bed, and the auxillary 3rd bedroom has a queen-size bed.
What makes this Condo unique
Our favorite feature of this home is the large 500 sf terrace that overlooks the expertly manicured lawn area and 1-acre pool area. You will enjoy the ocean views, watching visiting cruise ships, and especially the night lights of downtown Puerto Vallarta.

Home away from home in paradise.
My family of 6 stayed recently a week in August . We usually have to book 2 hotel rooms so decided to try VRBO. The condo was more than enough room for us. We also enjoyed having a kitchen and laundry facilities. Lily met us when we arrived and showed us the ropes- quickest check in I have ever had while traveling. The condo is beautiful and authentic. The view is amazing with a nice breeze at night . The pool is enormous and quite empty while we were there. Although it was empty, we had great service for food and drinks. The $30 dollar one hour massage was amazing . You also have a private beach area to enjoy. Location is ideal and very safe with gated community and 24 hour doorman. We would highly recommend and hope to return soon to Shangri-La.
Beautiful property and condo
Our family of 6 stayed in this condo for 5 nights in early August. The property and grounds are lovely and well-maintained. The apartment itself is roomy and comfortable. It was very clean and well-supplied. We loved the large balcony overlooking the pool and ocean. It was hot while we were there and the air conditioning was much appreciated--effective and quiet. Lilly and her husband were very helpful with check-in, provided our airport shuttle, and for a modest $25 fee, did grocery shopping for us in advance of our arrival. The pool area was never crowded, and the pool bar serves a great breakfast or lunch. We ate several times at the Marina across the street, enjoying Victor's for Mexican, La Terrazza di Roma for Italian, and Le Rincon de Buenos Aires for steak. All very good and very reasonable. The bus stop and taxi stand are right in front of the property, and Uber is everywhere, so it's an easy trip downtown to Old Town and the Malecon. Overall, this property is highly recommended for a stay in Puerto Vallarta.
Unbelievable property! Will be back
Thank you to Marion and Lilly for a memorable experience in PV for my family and I. Both Marion and Lilly were extremely responsive and helpful during the planning of our trip and while staying on property (we stayed from 7/7/18 -7/14/18 and traveled with a 9 year old and 5 year old). The Property itself is one of the most beautiful in PV as the grounds and pool are constantly cared for every day. There is security at the front 24 hours a day, and they are so friendly and helpful. Marion's unit is perfect as it is decorated nicely and well kept (kids loved the huge TV in the family room). The unit provides everything you could need for your stay so you really only need to bring clothes and you are ready to go (they provide beach towels, sun screen, all kitchen ware, WIFI, laundry soaps, etc...) You name it, Marion and Lilly provide it to make your stay hassle free. The deck was spectacular and we spent many mornings and nights enjoying the views. In addition, the location of the condo complex is right next to the Marina Golf Course and the Marina Restaurants. Walk directly across the street and there is about 7-8 restaurants to choose from which makes it super convenient if you don't want to cook, there is also an OXXO convenience store to pick up waters and drinks. I am 100% positive we will be back soon and thank Marion and Lilly for their hospitality.
Thank you for the amazing review! And thank you for allowing us to help make you and your family's vacation memorable! We look forward to having you again!!!!
Everything you want and more
Condo is well appointed absolutely beautiful and worth the money. Property is immaculate safe and very secure the location to the marina shops and restaurants is key to your stay. The Communcations with the owner and property manager made arrival and getting familiar with the property easy. Would rebook without hesitation.
This is truly a shangri-la!!!
What an amazing stay we had!! From the moment we met Lily at the elevator, to the moment we went down our elevator for the last time, we were in “pampered paradise”!
Marion, the owner, is amazing!! She was always quick to respond to questions while we were preparing for the trip, and sent us an email the day we arrived at shangri-la offering any assistance.
The grounds and pool are simply unmatched! The staff is always primping the beautiful landscape and pool. The security is very visible and friendly, verifying anybody trying to walk onto the property from the beach side. The poolside bar and food (limited menu) was very good. There was ample seating for anyone that wanted a chaise by the pool or under the palapa on the beach. When we walked the beach, the Marriott next door was so over packed with people...didn’t even look fun!!
This unit is perfectly located in the building! You don’t see your neighbor on either side...you look over the entire “huuuge” pool straight into the unobstructed view of the ocean!!! The unit is large, fresh, clean, and open aired...furniture accessories and colors are very tastefully done!!!
Marion & Dave, we can’t thank you enough for sharing your beautiful condo with those lucky enough to find you!!! THANK YOU again for the amazing time we had with family!!!

This Shangri-La condo is a dream! Spectacular view, perfect location, every detail in the home is filled with authentic Mexican decor with so many hospitable touches (toiletries, hair dryer, water bottles, some alcohol, laundry detergent, plenty of extra sheets/towels/tissues/tp). The condo was very clean and exactly as pictured in the description. Just be aware that the 3rd bedroom/bathroom is detached from the condo (across the hall with its own door code) so you would probably not leave young children alone in there. But the couch in the living room is large and comfortable with incredible ocean view so my young son had no problem sleeping there! Perfect views from the other 2 bedrooms and no need for air conditioner with the sliding glass door left open, great air circulation to keep the home cool. The Shangri-La is right across from the Marina, a 2 minute walk to plenty of restaurants and shops. (I highly recommend Victor's place for any time of the day, we tried many places in the Marina and all agreed Victors was the best!) The bus stop to the Malecon or Wal Mart is also across the street and the area is safe and quiet (7.5 pesos bus fare). The condo is located in building 4, which is the closest building to the exit gates. Security at the gate was always friendly, polite and helpful with information. We had plenty of space in the condo for a family of 5 and there were always plenty of open spots by the pool and beach. Pool service was delicious - we tried many different items from the menu and liked them all (chicken quesadillas, shrimp tacos, nachos). Lilly was super friendly and check in was easy - a quick tour and then she left us to start our vacation! I would highly recommend this condo and can't wait to book here again!
