About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Alondra is one of only eleven privately-owned condominiums in one of the most architecturally stunning buildings in Los Muertos, Old Town, Puerto Vallarta. A perfect location - one block from the ocean waves (two minutes walk) but with beach and ocean views. This totally unique building is white and curvilinear with lush garden planters on every level. The ambience is quiet, adult-oriented and friendly. The building is not suitable for children. The rooftop deck enjoys panoramic ocean, beach and city views. Sunset and even whale-watching are spectacular!

This condominium building is wonderfully managed. Your rental rate includes an honest, friendly, English-speaking daytime Manager, daily maid service and nighttime security guard. The building is securely gated. You have keys for the front gate, Alondra and a private lockbox.

Alondra is on the third floor, just behind the dipping pool and the red bougainvillea visible in our exterior photo. An easy, zig-zag set of 25 steps leads up the outside of the building to enter our level of the building directly. The pool deck itself is equipped with quality wrought iron table and chairs as well as soft loungers. Alondra is the largest of three units sharing the pool deck. Because of our proximity to the beach and the option of using our even larger rooftop deck, the pool deck remains perfect for eating breakfast outside, a quiet afternoon read or an evening drink. From both decks, you can enjoy ocean and beach views. Even from inside Alondra, you can view the ocean, the pool, neighbouring red-tiled and charmingly domed rooftops.

Alondra is non-smoking and air-conditioned when necessary. Casablanca ceiling fans are also overhead. The spacious living/dining and kitchen area is open concept with two large opening windows. We have comfy seating for relaxing or eating in. You can stay connected with cable TV(27 inch flat-screen), both ethernet & WIFI & a nice little sound system with MP-3 plug-in.

The kitchen is fully equipped. There is a refrigerator, gas stovetop, electric toaster oven, microwave, coffeemaker, watercooler, toaster, slowcooker, blender and juicer. An iron & ironing board too. All dishes, cutlery, and utensils are included. Vallarta's municipal water is rated perfectly safe but large bottles of water are available via our Manager.

A large string-curtained archway opens into a spacious bedroom. The bedroom features a huge arched window, plenty of closet space, a clock-radio and in-room safe. All towels(except beach) and linens are included.

The en-suite bathroom is roomy, attractively tiled and features a shower with a bench seat and an original stained glass window. An electric hairdryer is supplied.

Moderately-priced, uniquely beautiful and conveniently located - why stay anywhere else? Besides the nearby beach, you are three blocks stroll along safe, cobblestoned streets to the lively Olas Altas area. Local grocery stores & services, drugstores, trendy coffeeshops, internet cafes, some of Vallarta's finest dining, live theatre, clubs, and nightlife are all available. You will feel safe and part of our friendly neighbourhood in no time!

About David Ritchie

For 26 years, we owned and operated one of Vancouver, Canada's most successful downtown bed and breakfasts. Alondra is our own personal getaway and we are happy to share it with you! Our Vacation Rental offers you the same professional attention to detail that earned the trust of thousands of satisfied B & B guests.

David Ritchie purchased this condo in 2006

Why David Ritchie chose Amapas

As a professional innkeeper, I certainly understand the need for a worry-free vacation getaway. I first discovered vacation rentals myself in magical Puerto Vallarta. The beauty, variety and friendliness of Banderas Bay convinced us that PV would feature in our own retirement plans someday. Through sheer good luck, we rented Alondra for our own vacation in 2006 and then jumped at the opportunity to purchase in this stunning building.

Since pictures are worth a thousand words, I have a youtube video ready to show you! I will introduce myself and show you our condo's proximity to the beach.Then we can walk through Alondra, show you the amenities, the pool and of course, the amazing views!

Review of Alondra

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this delightful condo for 2-weeks. We have never slept in such a gigantic and comfortable bed! The manager, Jose Luis, was always available, charming & full of suggestions. The cleaning/maintenance Staff & nighttime guard were hardworking, efficient & very friendly. We very much appreciated the daily maid service. The condo building is well managed & well maintained. The condo is 2-3 minutes from the Blue Chairs Beach. It is also 5-6 minutes away from Puerto Vallarta's nightlife, boutiques, restaurants etc. There's an excellent mini-supermarket a few minutes away and there's a laundry about 4 minutes away. (You leave your laundry and pick it up at the end of the afternoon. Very, very reasonable rates.) The kitchen in the condo is well equipped. We cooked 5 excellent meals there during our two week holiday. The bathroom is a nice size. Lots of closet/drawer space in the bedroom. The owner, by the way, was very friendly and sent us all the necessary information well in advance. In conclusion, we have no hesitation in recommending this very nice condo to anyone.

Un condo très agréable, très propre & confortable. Personnel très sympathique & excellent service. Le condo est très, très bien situé.

Delightful! Location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Alondra for a week. As this was our first trip to PV, we wanted to be in the older area of the city. We were not disappointed. From the condo it was easy to get to sights and activities that the city has to offer. The condo was well appointed, clean, private, and wonderfully staffed. The pool/patio was great for cooling off, enjoying a drink, listening to the sounds of the ocean, and for sunning. Getting to the beach from the condo was only a short hike. Many marvelous restaurants were within walking distance or a short taxi ride away. The condo was a delightful home away from home!

Owner's Response: As this was your first-time trip to Vallarta, I am so glad that you you discovered our condo as a home-base for all your explorations. Don't be surprised if Puerto Vallarta lures you back. We will hope to see you again soon! All the best, David.

We stayed here a week in August. It is in a perfect location, close enough to walk to anything but quiet at night and just up a long flight of stairs from the beach. Just outside the door is the dipping pool and sundeck, which we used for breakfast, cocktails, lunch and laying out. An unexpected benefit of this condo was all of the cool neighbors staying in other units. Great view from the rooftop deck. We would definitely stay here again. The unit has all you need. The owners and property manager made everything easy.
