Fascinating nearby attractions include the historic colonial town of Puerto Vallarta, whale watching, world famous fishing, championship golf courses and exciting shopping and nightlife.

Every year December 1 to 12, stunning displays and floats flood the streets of Puerto Vallarta during the annual Festival of Our Lady of Guadalupe, a frenetic celebration commemorating what many believe was the miraculous apparition of the virgin Mary seen by a local peasant I n December 1531.During the festival, vibrant processions come in waves throughout the city and surrounding communities. When they converge at the historic downtown Church of our Lady of Guadalupe, a carnival-like scene ensues, with music, dancing, traditional foods, drinks, crafts and souvenirs. With so much going on, many consider this the very best time of the year to visit the city.

There are so many fun things to do around Nuevo Vallarta. Enjoy swimming at the infinity pool, walk for miles on the most beautiful beach at Banderas Bay right outside your condo, go to the mall ( about 1 mile ) where there are fabulous shops and restaurants, a super market, car rental,and spa.

What makes this condo unique

With 12 miles of beach right at our doorstep we love to walk early in the morning and watch things come to life in the surf and on the beach. We also like to eat at the local cafe's and restaurants. Doing the turtle releases at 6:30 PM is another way to stay in touch with nature. We love it there!!

We stayed in this condo for a week and absolutely loved it! The decor is very authentic, the space is perfect, and the views! Amazing sunsets! The owners could not have been more helpful in every step along the way. We will be coming back for sure!

This is the second time that we have stayed in this condo. It is clean and is extremely well livable

  • 5 of 5

It is a gorgeous place and the views are fantastic. The condo is very well equipped and meets our comfort needs hands down. Thanks Dick and Marianne (owners) as well as Patti (property manager) for making our stay here very satisfying and enjoyable. Patti was always informative and there to answer our questions as well as provide information on local eateries and sights. We are already counting down for our stay here again next year!

Clean comfortable well equipped

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is perfectly adequate for a couple. The bed is comfortable and the shower is great. The kitchen is well equipped which made cooking easy. On,y complaint is that the tv is too small and we couldn’t find adequate nstructions on using it and the DVD player.

Sitting on the vLcony gives a lovely view of the pool and the ocean .

Enjoyed our time here

  • 5 of 5

We loved this beautiful place. When we rent, it isn't always as advertised and doesn't look like the listing online. This condo was exactly as advertised. No nasty surprises! It was so easy to work with the owner. Anytime I asked a question, it was answered very promptly and with humor! There were 3 of us and there was plenty or room and seating. This condo was very well equiped, so much so I would say it was one of the best stocked kitchens ever. The washer and dryer came in very handy. While we had rain, thunder and lightening for a couple of days, it was actually fun. It kept the heat down and the storms were beautiful over the ocean. Also, Patty the manager is next door and was so welcoming and full of information. We thank her too. We would definitely love to stay here again in the future. While this condo is a part of the Dreams resort, you need to have pesos to buy a drink at the bar by the pool if you're staying in a condo. They DO NOT take American money or credit cards. We also asked it we could eat at one of the many restaurants at Dreams they were quite honest. Yes we could, but breakfast would be approx $30, lunch approx $40 and dinner over $55. Yikes!! There is a snack bar for the condo people at the pool, but unfortunately, it seems to be closed the month of September. There is a good beach club about a block and a half north called ETC and we enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing your home!
