Oceanfront South Shore Condo

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

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

Welcome to the fabulous south shore "gold coast " in beautiful Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Located three miles (six kilometres) south of Puerto Vallarta, this condo is a mere ten minute drive along the ocean, on its own beachfront, and a great addition to this exquisite waterfront area.

The complex is, we believe, the finest of its type in Puerto Vallarta. On the beach level is featured a huge infinity pool that seems to end where the ocean begins. Next to the pool is a children's pool and spa. Also on this level is the gym, palapa dining room, and game room. With direct access to the beach and fresh water showers at beach side, swimming in the ocean is but a few steps away. The beach is protected by a private breakwater, creating a calm swimming area. The beach is also patroled by city lifeguards.

Our unit consists of 2100 square feet of outdoor terraces and indoor luxury. The living area and both bedrooms face the ocean; even the master bath has an ocean view of the passing boats from its own jacuzzi. The interior has been tastefully decorated by Kim Cawood, one of Puerto Vallarta's leading interior decorators, in a modern Mexican style. Each oceanfront bedroom has its own bath and extensive built-in closets. The fully-equipped kitchen features an ice maker, dishwasher, fridge, blender, toaster, coffee maker, lime press, dishes, knives, serving bowls, and silver.

The living area features a flat screen TV, Dvd/vcr player, Bose radio/CD player with iPOD docking sstation, tropical plants, and sleek rosewood furniture. The glass dining table is on the terrace with an unobstructed ocean view and lovely after dark lighting. With an oceanfront location, guests are treated to great cross ventilation by the ocean breezes and rarely need the central two zone air conditioning.

Although Puerto Vallarta is one of only two cities in Mexico with federally certified pure water, our building has its own triple filtered water system .

With golf, Scuba, surfing, snorkeling, sailing, jungle excursions, shopping, great restaurants, and great nightclubs in Puerto Vallarta and the Bay of Banderas region, come and enjoy a week or a month in this tropical, oceanfront paradise!

With a large ocean front infinity pool, it is a hard choice to decide between a swim in the ocean mere steps away or in the pool with its built-in tile chaise lounges. The pool is surrounded by large ocean front terraces with tables, chairs, chaise lounges, and umbrellas. At the top of the beach stairs are two fresh water showers to rinse off after your swim or walk on the beach. Guests may eat in the open air, ocean front palapa dining room which serves breakfast and lunch 6 days a week or have food delivered to your condo. Our unit also has two oversized teak lounges on our private ocean front terrace. So the hardest decision you have to make during the day is sun or shade, private or public terrace, ocean or pool!

Our complex is only 31 units and primarily residential so it has a feel of a private beach home. With every room having great ocean views, you can watch all the sea life that the Bay of Banderas has to offer: humpback whales, dolphins, shore birds, pelicans, frigate birds, and schools of fish.

Puerto Vallarta in the last 5 years has become the premier tropical resort destination on the west coast. With many outstanding golf courses including the world's #1 ranked golf course at Punta Mita, it is fast becoming an international golf destination. With snorkeling, surfing, sailing, and fishing, it offers about every type of ocean recreation. Puerto Vallarta hosts a separate annual Sports Fishing Tournament, Wine Festival, Gourmet Festival, and Film Festival. With outstanding restaurants offering all types of local and international cuisines, Puerto Vallarta is a foodie's dream come true.

Oceanfront Gem!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I always stay at Las Palmares. In fact, our first stay was for our honeymoon 5 years ago. Steve and Nathan's condo is absolutely lovely; beautifully decorated and fully equipped. They are a pleasure to work with. Everything always goes smoothly and the staff are ready for your arrival. You can't beat the view of the beach and ocean. What we really love is the "Palapa", which is an on-site, resident/guest only, open air restaurant. Really good breakfasts! I particularly like the gorgeous fruit platter. It's nice to not have to go to town if you don't want to after a day in the sun. They will deliver to your room as well anytime before their 3:30P quitting time (they start early AM). Dinner can be waiting for you when you're ready to eat. The location is less than 10 minutes into the Romantica Zone by cab. Or, take the local bus for pennies. Romantica Zone has many wonderful restaurants within walking distance. You can also walk down to the beach (the Malecon) for some food and people watching. Steve and Nathan also have an English speaking property manager that is available if you need any provisions delivered or if any problems arise. We are headed to Las Palmares and Room 802 again December, 2017!

Above and beyond amazing

  • 5 of 5

This is our fifth visit to this amazing condo. The entire staff is more than accommodating to a persons every need. We so would recommend this as a place to stay in PV. We used the local bus most of the time to get to downtown. We always felt safe. The condo is the perfect place to un wind and enjoy the great sunsets, the great pool, and one of the most beautiful beaches anywhere. The restaurants are above and beyond wonderful. The kitchen is completely equipped for those times you want to eat in. The owners of this Property have prepared a wonderful book that gives you lots of tour advice and great places to eat. This is still one of the most relaxing places to have a great vacation. This property would be wonderful for a romantic Honey Moon. Thanks so very much for making it available for the rest of the world to enjoy.

Beyond our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I and our wives rented this condo for 2 weeks in January. We dealt with Steve Nyman by email and the booking process was very smooth. Steve was very good at answering all of our questions and we appreciated his easy-going nature and positive attitude. The condo itself is absolutely beautiful - decorated with a real flair and very inviting and comfortable. Its location in the building is one of the best - high enough to afford a great view and a nice breeze. We were amazed at how quiet the pool and beach were. Often, we felt as if we were the only ones staying there! We made use of the palapa for several lunches and also ordered some food for one evening meal. Jorge and the rest of the staff there were great to deal with. The front desk staff were also excellent and arranged all of the tours that we took. (As an aside we really enjoyed the Rhythm of the Night tour and the whale watching. We felt that the trip to San Sebastien was not as good - too long of a bus ride for a so-so lunch in a very quiet town.)

We made use of Steve's recommended list of restaurants and we were not disappointed. They were all amazing.

We have stayed at many 4 and 5 star all-inclusives in the past but this experience offers much more. We were able to get into the heart of the old town in 10 minutes on the bus and select from a huge variety of restaurants and other activities. We could then return to the serene atmosphere at the condo and recharge our batteries.

Usually we are ready to come home after 2 weeks away but in this case we could definitely have stayed on. Paradise!

Beautiful Condominium.........Wonderful, Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

Spent one week in this lovely property and had a wonderful experience. The condo (located on the 6th floor from the beach) is tastefully decorated with all of the creature comforts one could ask. A magnificent breeze flows thru the condo nearly all day and evening when you leave the balcony windows open which we did at all times (quite safe). We never turned the A/C on during our stay as it was that cool and comfortable at night (and I need to be cool at night!). The spacious balcony has a marvelous view of the ocean and sunsets with the town and the north shore of Vallarta off to the right. It also has a variety of tropical plants, very comfortable lounge chairs and a small table to enjoy breakfast in the morning and/or a cool drink in the evening giving us a tropical atmosphere as we relaxed out there. Conveniently located a few miles south of Old Town along the South Shore with very easy access to taxi's and the local bus. The property is gated providing a sense of privacy and security, has a very pleasant staff, a clean and spacious pool and seating area and a Palapa Restaurant at beach level with fine meals (breakfast and lunch) at very reasonable prices.

The building is located right on a lengthy (and nice) beach with fine sand and clear, cool water. The swimming is safe as a breakwater borders the swimming area and controls the waves and undertow concerns.

We stayed during the off-season (May) and, thus, saw only a few of the other residents of the building but noted that they were quite pleasant.......cordial but respectful of your "space".

Its location provides easy access to both town (to the north) or to the towns and activities south of town (Mismaloya, Boca de Tomatlan, Zoo, Botanical Gardens).

The property is ideal for singles or couples looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation away from the noise and hustle of the town. A really lovely home and location.

P.S. Very easy and pleasant dealings with the building owners, Steve and Nathan.

This is a fantastic condo, the photos are exact the location is wonderful, the listing details were exact. This condon complex is out of town so quiet and not crazy with drunk tourists, however, across the street is a bus stop and it is cheap and takes you into town and you can walk around. You can also take the bus to the botanical gardens.Everyone at the complex is very helpful, the Palapa for breakfast/lunch, snack is great. The place is very well maintained, the location of this unit is wonderful, it is at the end of the hall and there are only 3 units per floor. This was the most relaxing vacation we have had in a long time, and we would go back there again in a heartbeat.

To sit on the deck and have your coffee in the morning is the most delightful start to your day, the condo has everything you need to feell at home. Listening to the waves crash at night is an amazing lullaby.

Loved the condo! Bravo for Nathan and Steve.

  • 5 of 5

The answer to the first five Tips & Guidelines (on the right) is absolutely.

We loved the cafe operated by the condo association and never missed a fruit plate for breakfast and an "occasional" mid-afternoon Margherita. We're old Vallarta hands and enjoyed the restaurants suggested by our hosts but didn't like to venture far from Los Palmares' comfort and beauty.
