Gorgeous 5 Star Beachfront Condo at the popular Villa Magna Condominiums!

Bedrooms 1
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 14 - 28 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Queen Aerobed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Beautifully appointed condo has a breathtaking view from the 9th floor(10 floor building). The advantage to our condo is the building and the floor. We have the ocean view all the way to Punta de Mita. From the walkway we have a fabulous view all the way south! You can watch the cruise ships come into the Meritime! If you rent on lower floors you can not see over the hotel next door! I find this a major difference and I love both views (walkway and balcony)! Watch the sunsets from balcony as well as the whales and the Sierra Madre Mountains. Go down the elevator directly to 3 huge warm pools, another set of bathrooms (easy to use if your bathroom is occupied), and the private beach with 24 hour security and many palapa's and chaise lounges with umbrellas for shade.

The beach is located in the middle of the Bay of Banderas and is considered to be the best beach on the bay. Shallow for many feet into the water and completely sandy. Enjoy whale and dolphin watching from the balcony or go down to the beach and enjoy parasailing, boogie boards, wave runners or sit and read a book under your own palapa. We supply boogie boards for your use. With Dream's Villa Magna 5 Star Resort on campus you can enjoy organized water fun, thatch bars, rooftop Sushi Bar as well as 5 International restaurants and Reggae dancing under the moonlight! Just at ground floor!

Our condo has two extra closets we had built in the bedroom. Plus in the bath we added anextra storage cabinet under the sink and over the toilet. These are not found in many other one bedroom units. It's our design. Plenty of space for all of your needs!

Within a half hour to Puerto Vallarta, Bucerias (I have walked there via the beach...about 3 miles), Sayulita..surfing and quaint shops as well as many wonderful golf courses! Excellent, convenient location. If you want to head to El Centro (The main shopping area in Puerto Vallarta) the bus system is terrific and tourist feel very comfortable taking full advantage of it. Catching the bus is easy and close by. Cabs are right outside the gates to the right. No need to call a cab service, just walk a block and grab one :)

Beautiful championship golf courses are just minutes away offering golf for all skill levels. They rent new Taylor Made and Callaway clubs at approximately $45. Vista Vallarta is close by and boasts 2 challenging mountain courses by Nicklaus and Weiskoff with gorgeous views. I also love Marina Vallarta Golf and El Tigre (down the steet!)

Everything you need for total comfort. Just bring your clothes!

About Carol

We are a Christian couple that truly enjoy when others love our condo. Frank is a Senior System Analyst and I am a retired broker. We both grew up in Chicago, IL, went to college in Illinois and currently live in a Chicago Suburb. We have two happily married children and have grandchildren we enjoy so very much. We enjoy our church and our church family is a big part of our life. It does get cold in Chicago so we decided in 2003 (before Villa Magna was built) to buy in Mexico and we knew that Nuevo was the new hot spot with better and safer beaches than Puerto Vallarta where the beaches are deeper and have greater undercurrent. The beach by us is ideal. Shallow for a long way into the water, sandy bottom and almost no undertow. Our children and grandchildren so enjoy this beach. We saw the banner for Villa Magna and as one of the very first purchaser we were able to pick the prime floor and building that we wanted. Now you can enjoy those same advantages! You will love our floor, and our condo!

Carol purchased this condo in 2003

Why Carol chose Nuevo Vallarta

The Nayarit Riviera on the Bay of Banderas has become the hottest vacation spot since 9/11. The weather mimicks Hawaii and we have months of fantastic weather with no rain and blue skies. We enjoy the ocean and ocean view, balmy breezes and mountains with as much fun time as we can handle with no rain and no humidity (until rainy season in Aug, Sept and Oct). This has been the best investment we ever made. We love our condo and enjoy it fully. We have it all..mountains, water/beaches/whales and 2 beautiful views...all the way north and south! Only from Building 2 above the 7th floor can you enjoy these views.

What makes this condo unique

What sets up apart from the others? The 9th floor in Building 2 has the best views!! We enjoy a beautiful view from the walkway. I often take a cup of coffee and watch the cruise ships come in all the way in Puerto Vallarta. If on a lower floor you only have the view into the neighboring hotel. If in the other building the view from the walkway is the parking lot! We offer two beautiful views...including the view from our balcony which reaches all the way to Punta de Mita! You can't beat our views. We handpicked this location as one of the original purchasers.

We custom built two extra closets in the Master Bedroom and had a beautiful king size platform bed built. The bed is very comfortable! We also had a custom cabinet and drawers built under our bathroom sink and a cabinet above the commode. Most other 1 bedrooms come standard the way they were built without this extra storage.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As we wait at the airport, Marie and I are reflecting upon what a lovely and enchanted time we had for our anniversary stay at your condo. We loved everything about it and didn’t even need to turn on the air because of the delicious breezes. We had comfort, beautiful mountain views and great restaurants. We will be returning! Back to Canada for now and thank you again!

A truly relaxing beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautifully furnished and stocked with all the essentials. Great access to pool area and beach, easy to get around. Beach in Nuevo Vallarta is gorgeous, swim worthy and great for long walks. A few nice restaurants nearby, but Blue Shrimp is a must once or twice. Easy transportation by bus or taxi anywhere including Puerto Vallarta.

VillaMagna is a top destination

  • 5 of 5

We’ve enjoyed 14 days of perfect weather! Some lovely meals at Pipis, Guidos, and twice at Fajita Republic. Great ribs! We love this area so much we have already booked a 3 bedroom condo for next year.

Carol has been an excellent host and the condo was exactly as described. We’re only going to a 3 bedroom unit because we want to have our family come down. You won’t be disappointed if you book this condo with this owner!

Beautiful view with everything we needed to make our stay !

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an amazing time. The view really is amazing. Sitting on the balcony with our morning coffee looking out at the ocean made this one of our best vacations yet. I highly recommend booking !!

Meets all expectations and then some!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at Carols twice now. The condo's location is situated perfectly for the most gorgeous view of the ocean as well as the entire outdoor area which includes several restaurants and bars, and several pools including an infinity pool.

Down the elevator and out the door you are at the beach with loungers. A short distance and you will get a massage right on the beach and run into many more restaurants and bars. You are even walking distance to an adorable little town, Bucerias (sp?).

The condo has a very nice balcony where I have watched the dolphins play. The condo is clean, furnished with style and has a comfortable hide-a-bed and bedroom.

The kitchen is equipped with anything you might need and is kept up to date. AND the water is safe to drink as these condos are pretty new.

There is a nice mall and grocery store that one can easily walk to or you can hop a local bus.

I felt very safe with the security provided.

I would go back in a heart beat.

Thank you, Carol.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Ann. Such a wonderful review! Bucerias was spelled perfectly. I hope you (and Ron) decide to come back. Maybe sometime in the future you would like to show Calvin the whales. You are always welcome! Bendiciones, Carol

The condo has everything you need to make you feel like home. Great location, Villa Magna has everything you need for your vacations. Very close to restaurants, shopping mall, grocery stores and golf courses.

Exquisite view of the ocean and luxurious pool.

  • 5 of 5

This condo is conveniently located in Nueva Vallarta. The condo has all the amenities that one would need to make your stay comfortable! My favorite feature of the condo is the spectacular view of the ocean. I would have my coffee on the balcony each morning and enjoy the ocean breeze and enjoy the view of the pool, beach and ocean. Going to the beach is a short elevator ride down, where you find a palapa (sun umbrella) and relax and soak in the sun. Waiters are available to bring you a drink! All the luxuries are available. I had so much fun, can't wait to return!
