It's a home with heart. It's a space decorated with the flavors of Mexico including original floor and wall tiles and woodwork. At the same time, we provide all of the amenities you need for a very comfortable modern stay.
Location. Location. Location. Our condo is located on a quiet street in the Zona Romantica, a bustling neighborhood of good food, good fun and conveniences. From this first floor unit you can easily stroll to the daytime pleasures of beach bumming or the nightlife fun of Puerto Vallarta. Walk to restaurants; grocery stores ; pharmacies; bank ATMs; massage & pedicures; art galleries; taco stands; Farmer's Market; bars; cabarets! Just unpack and you are home...in Mexico!

About Wayne Crabbs
Marc & Wayne. Partnered since 1974 and were married 2014 (finally!) We have made PV our second home in preparation for eventual retirement. We live in the Santa Cruz Mountains in Northern California so that PV is a perfect contrast to our type of rural living. We enjoy breaking bread with friends over good food and good wines...and we love our cats!
Wayne Crabbs purchased this Condo in 2007
Why Wayne Crabbs chose Amapas
We've traveled to Puerto Vallarta many years until it just started to feel like home. We bought Casa Maria for lots of reasons but mostly because of the location and a neighborhood full of great people and great charm. This is not a place for resort minded vacationers. This is for people who want to have a Mexico experience! AND if you book between April 15 and October 15 for 5 nites and we treat you to a TACO WALKING TOUR FOR TWO with Vallarta Eats Food Tours for the most delicious, fresh and original tacos and street food in PV!
What makes this Condo unique
Beach walks. Breakfast on the balcony. Quiet reading. Wonderful nearby restaurants or cooking dinner at home. Garbo's, our local bar and hangout. Then there's the TACOS: Book between April 15 and October 15 for 5 nites and we treat you to a taco walking tour for 2 with Vallarta Eats Food Tours for the most delicious, fresh and original tacos and street food in PV!

Second Year Same as the First!!
This little apartment has a typical Mexican flair and is close to all amenities and night life. Staff is helpful and friendly.
We stayed in Marc and Wayne's condo in early April 2017. The weather was really nice; not cold or hot. The condo is nicely decorated and has everything to make one's stay very comfortable. The location is just a bit outside the tourist area and so it is quiet and private during the day and night - just as we like it. We had the onsite pool to ourselves each time we used it. My girls (ages 11 and 13) loved their room with the separate beds and their own balcony with ocean and pool views. Jose and the onsite staff were helpful and informative. Thanks for a relaxing stay.

Very good private 2 bedrooms apartment. Comfortable beds. Cool furniture and furnishings...
Apartment is close enough to the beach scene, but quieter for peaceful relaxation indoors or at the pool.
Made several meals in the well equipped kitchen. Shopping for foods convenient. Not sure how we missed the Tacos for two...on us, (rental advert) but we did enjoy eating out at three great restaurants.
Overall, our stay was perfect for us.
Pool was too cold. Walking up and down the stairs was difficult. The apartment was wonderful, everything worked very well, lots of space very attractive decor.
Wonderful Stay....Very Homey and a Great Location
We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Maria. It was well equipped and very comfortable ( my back was especially happy to find such a good quality bed)!! We were able to walk everywhere and as a result we got out and about much more often and are in better shape than when we got there. Wayne and Marc were terrific hosts. Everything was well organized and any questions were quickly answered. Jose Luis and his staff at the condo were very friendly and helpful. We'll be back. Thanks for everything!
Casa Maria, Puerto Vallarta
What a wonderful space we found ourselves in when we landed at Casa Maria! The space was beautiful and functional and the location amazing - just a hop, skip and a jump from the beach, with access to a great pool and lounge area, too! Jose (the manager) and all the staff were friendly and helpful and the notes from Wayne and Marc were very informative, sharing everything from the best places to eat and shop, to how much we could expect to spend on cab rides. We had a fantastic family vacation and hope to be back some day soon!
