Bedrooms 3
Space 2,000 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Delightful, fully equipped penthouse condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Bienvinedos! Welcome to our Penthouse!

All you need do now is relax and enjoy!

As you step out onto the spacious patio you will be met with ocean breezes, the rustle of palm trees and the gentle sound of the waterfall in the landscaped courtyard below.

Grab a few beach towels and relax at the pool or stroll down to the beach and enjoy a beautiful Bucerias sunset.

You may wish to dine out at one of the many excellent restaurants within walking distance of the condo, order in or pick up anything you may need at the new Chedraui supermarket located at the op of the street.

The freshest shrimp, lobster, fabulous meats and produce can be found in the town center of Bucerias ('Centro').

Taxis are also available just outside the condo and will take you anywhere in Bucerias for about $5 or $6 US Dollars.

The condo sleeps six comfortably with a king size bed in the master suite, a queen size bed in the guest room and two twin beds in the loft that may be put together if you wish.

Extra linens and beach towels are provided along with weekly maid service.

Daily maid service may also be arranged.

Strolling the peaceful white sand beach, bargaining with the vendors at the local flea market or enjoying a swim and lunch under a palapa at one of the many beachside restaurants are just a few of the ways to enjoy this quaint Mexican town.

For the adventurous there is horseback riding, ATV's, para sailing, kayaking, snorkeling, fishing, golf, shopping, spas, jungle tours, swimming with dolphins............and then there is Puerto Vallarta, just a short cab ride or inexpensive bus ride away.

Although summer is the 'Slow Season' in Mexico, we love coming down at this time of year to enjoy the empty beaches, uncrowded restaurants and lower prices found throughout Bucerias and Vallarta.

We are located on the first Bucerias exit, about a block and a half from the beach.

We look forward to having you as our guests.

About Mary Lou Kaupe

Daryl and Mary Lou Kaupe are the happy owners of Penthouse #5 and live in Petaluma, California. Their passion is fishing and both belong to the Bassmaster Lunker Club.

Though years from retirement (Daryl is an auto technician in Santa Rosa,CA) they spend as much free time as possible with their friends at Condo Moona.

Mary Lou Kaupe purchased this condo in 1996

Why Mary Lou Kaupe chose Bucerías

We started visiting Puerto Vallarta in 1992 but it took us 14 years to discover Bucerias. We immediately fell in love with the town, it's friendly people, the beautiful beach and knew that this is where we would retire. That day can't come soon enough!

Relaxing and warm vacation

  • 5 of 5

Condo was as advertised and pictures were accurate. It was quiet despite being next to a street with constant traffic. Close to amenities - large grocery store just up the street and lots of places to eat close by. Large grocery store had very inexpensive liquor - we encountered local bar owners buying there. Just a few minutes from the very nice beach. Lots of beach towels provided. No beach chairs or boogie boards and we couldn't find any without heading into PV. Condo was well supplied for us to cook if we desired but food was quite inexpensive - check out the many street food vendors. Great on site security 24 hrs. Swimming pool for laps or to cool off. Seemed to be a constant breeze on the balcony - really good place to read. Roof top balcony is a common area but we never saw anyone else up there - great view of the ocean and we enjoyed watching the sunsets from it. Mary Lou was a pleasure to deal with - I'd stay here again.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

I spent four weeks at this condo with three friends and loved being there. The unit itself has a fully stocked kitchen, including many condiments and spices. Bedrooms are spacious with comfortable beds and the nights were peaceful. There is a gorgeous view of Banderas Bay from the balcony. The condo complex has a lovely pool and sitting area and the security and maintenance staff are fabulous and accommodating. I felt safe at all times. There are no elevators in this complex so be prepared to do the stairs. Kudos to the staff for carrying our luggage up and down and delivering water to the door. My only complaint is that the living room only seats 3 people and the furniture is somewhat uncomfortable but overall I would highly recommend Condo Moona. Mary Lou is a pleasure to deal with.

Perfect in every way...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the condo for 4 weeks in February and March. Our two adult children and one friend joined us for a week and a half. We found the condo perfect for all five or just the two of us. We spent a lot of time on the patio, which is spacious and always has a cool breeze blowing. The view from there and the roof top patio are great for sunsets.

The complex is very secure with full time security on site. The office manager and staff were great and always there to assist us. It's a short walk to the beach and about 15 minutes to the town centre with shops and restaurants along the way. Fat Boys restaurant on the beach became a favourite of ours. It's easy to catch a bus across from OXO to Sayulita or a taxi right across the street to anywhere.

Owner's Response: Thank you Kevin, I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay. With the ocean view and cooling breezes we seem to spend most of our time on the patio and the upper terrace too. Daryl and I look forward to having you back again soon! Mary Lou

Wonderful time at Condo Moona!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves during our time at this beautiful condo. We found everything we needed in the kitchen, the bedrooms were nice sizes and very comfortable. The complex itself is quiet, guarded and very well maintained. The pool area is nothing but serene! The sunset views from the rooftop patio were spectacular. The complex is only a few short blocks to the beach and we loved how quiet it was there. We went there to relax and relax we did! Any regrets stem only from the fact that we didn't stay nearly long enough.

Loved Condo Moona!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks again Mary Lou for the wonderful week at your Bucerias condo. We had a fabulous time. The unit and the grounds couldn't have been nicer. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the deck, cervezas around the pool in the afternoons, and happy-hour margueritas at Ixta. Amongst all this, somehow we managed a day trip to El Anclote for an afternoon of paddle boarding, and a lovely afternoon at Destiladeras Beach just hanging out and enjoying the surf. What a great town. What a great condo. Can't wait to visit again.
