Fabulous Oceanfront Condo 'Casa De Apollo'

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,450 sq ft
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This beautiful beachfront condo (Casa de Apollo) has just been remodeled in Mexican style, with modern amenities. This 1450 square foot condo is located right on Los Muertos Beach, the best swimming beach in Puerto Vallarta, where the Rio Cuale River enters Banderas Bay. This charming area is also known as Old Town or Zona Romantica.

You will have two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a dining room, a living room, and a fully-equipped kitchen at your disposal. The living room opens onto a large terrace and a breathtaking and completely unobstructed view of the entire Banderas Bay. You will be right on the beach with restaurants, shops, galleries, and nightlife within just a few blocks of our front door.

Our condo has two air-conditioners, four ceiling fans, three phones (with answering machine), and three satellite TVs (much of which is in English) along with two DVD players. You also will have a CD player in the living room.

Of course, the terrace is ideal for watching the dolphins and whales in the Bay, as well as the “fishing” pelicans and terns. The beach also offers parasailing, fishing excursions, whale watching tours, banana boat rides, snorkeling, and bay cruises.

You will be so close to anything you might want or need (including a food marts on the block), there is really no need for a rental car. Downtown Puerto Vallarta is a five minute walk along the newly constructed extension to the famous Malecon (waterfront walkway).

Villas Vista del Sol has a strong reputation as the best kept and managed condominium complex located on Los Muertos Beach. You'll have 24 hour security, a very large heated roof top pool, an excellent restaurant on the beach and palapas directly in front of the building with food and bar service. Washer and dryer facilities are located in the building for your personal use, and six day-a-week maid service is included. There is even wired and wireless Internet service in the condo.

With all to see and do, you should greatly enjoy your stay at Casa de Apollo!

About Greg

I've owned my condo for ten years now and treat it like I live there full time! I spend my vacations in Casa de Apollo and love every minute of it...and you will too!

Greg purchased this condo in 2007

What makes this condo unique

I just love sitting on the large balcony with wine or a Corona and staring out onto the bay, with the sailboats and crashing waves. There's nothing more peaceful to me.

Wonderful Condo!!! Awesome location right on Los Muertos beach and within walking distance of restaurants, shopping, groceries..don't need a cab.

Condo is spacious and the owner provides everything you need: towels, toiletries, kitchen supplies. Comfortable beds, terrific security, full kitchen. Very casual and comfortable place tastefully decorated. We loved it!!! The owner is a pleasure to deal with and wants you to enjoy your stay. We are absolutely coming back!

Nice view, so-so condo.

  • 3 of 5

The reason I only gave it 3 stars is it’s not a new/luxury condo. Door lock in master to balcony not working, knob falls off closet door in guest room. Guest bathroom has black plastic over hole in wall, dresser drawers smell like mold. Beds in guest bedroom are very uncomfortable. Additionally we went in September, which is when they do construction in the building, and it was extremely noisy. We were not warned in advance of this inconvenience and would probably have stayed somewhere else had we known. The owner provides lots of useful information, there was always someone at the front desk, and we felt secure there. It’s a great location and we’re very glad we stayed in the romantic/old PV area with so much character, as opposed to the hotel zone.

great location

  • 4 of 5

The condo itself was very nice in an older building and the staff were great. Can't beat the view, the balcony, and the great location. The 2 biggest negatives was the limited AC in the unit which was only in the bedrooms so it was not possible to sit in living room or dining areas during the day (we traveled in August). The second disappointment was the slow internet which worked for emails but not for videos or games. During our stay, the units on both sides were being renovated so there was a lot of construction noise. Also on the street in front of the building. We loved the location but internet and AC are important to us.

This ocean front condo in the Romantica Zone is the perfect location to stay in PV!

  • 5 of 5

You’ll have everything you need in this beautiful condo. It’s close to many great restaurants; bars and nightlife. Drinking coffee each morning on the balcony while watching the ocean and the sea life activity was a wonderful way to start the day. We saw dolphins! Beautiful pool on the roof. Really it was just perfect for us and I’d certainly recommend it!

Owner's Response: I am so happy you had a great time. I've heard so many folks saying they saw dolphins and it seems like completely different times of years...I'm not sure if they are permanent residents, but they sure put on a show!

Ideal location, Ideal condo

  • 5 of 5

We were so thrilled to rent this oecanfront condo from Greg for 2 weeks recently. We've rented other condos at the Vista del Sol, but this was the first time we had ocean frontage; so interesting to watch the day come alive with a certain rhythm that becomes daily entertainment. A nice way to relax with Margaritas in hand. This condo is fully equipped with kitchen supplies for cooking and bathroom necessities. Greg responded quickly with any questions I had. You just can't beat the location for access to the Malecon, the Isla Rio Cuale and to Old Town. Tremendously good restaurants and street food in every direction! I'd rent this again in a heartbeat; thanks Greg!
