About Roger Mallett (manager) and Bruce Coblentz (owner)

I love peace and quiet...and the ability to take a short walk into Old Town for Happy Hour and dinner.

Roger Mallett (manager) and Bruce Coblentz (owner) purchased this condo in 2008

Why Roger Mallett (manager) and Bruce Coblentz (owner) chose Amapas

Been coming for over 25 years and fell in love with this town. We now spend a lot of time here since I retired. The north facing view of town gets very little direct sun so it is very comfortable sitting on the balcony all day. Master bedroom is situated so you go to sleep and wake up to the view of the bay.

What makes this condo unique

Peaceful and quiet. Great view of Banderas Bay, and easy walk to lots of restaurants and bars in Old Town and Los Muertos beach.

Beautiful Unit with Stunning Views

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this unit for the first time from mid February to mid March 2016. We were looking for something with a Mexican feel that would be close to the fun of Old Town but far enough away to be quiet and relaxing. This unit delivered on all accounts. It is comfortably furnished with lovely Mexican touches in decor. The location was a 10 minute walk down to the Malecon and beach and an inexpensive 50.00 peso taxi ride back up. The walk back up is challenging and was done every day by our adult children who loved the exercise and challenge. I was experiencing knee issues and found the walk down no problem and even succeeded with the climb up a few times. There is nothing like a rewarding dip in the pool after the climb up. It was a great way to keep active.

The views are stunning and we couldn't believe our fortune every morning when opening our eyes to see the vista provided. We spent all our waking time in the unit on the terrace which is spacious and comfortably furnished.

We prepared many meals in the well stocked kitchen and truly appreciated the supply of dry goods and spices left in the unit. It helped to reduce food costs not to have to completely set up those types of supplies for cooking.

The only draw back with the building and unit is the lack of sun. Upon arrival in mid-Feb the pool was completely shaded and as the time progressed, by the middle of March, the pool was in more sun. The best time of day was mornings for sunbathing at the pool. The terrace at the unit was always shaded. This may be an issue for sun worshippers, however we preferred a shade terrace as it was more comfortable in the heat of the day. We found the pool temperature to be quite warm and was very comfortable to be in without the direct sun. Overall the limited sunlight was not a negative for us but might be a disappointment for some.

We enjoyed the various birds and parrots which live and play in the green space across from the unit.

The managers and owner were always available by phone and email and very responsive.

Overall we found it to be a great location in PV and really enjoyed the spaciousness of the unit itself. We did not hesitate to book our return for 2017.

Owner's Response: Thank my wife for the old Mexican decorations. And we love the balcony with the north facing view and the shade provided by the wall of the building next door. Very comfortable on the balcony all day long. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for the nice review.

Beautiful views!

  • 4 of 5

The owner was very easy to work with. This condo has amazing views. There was nothing lacking in the condo. We did have a minor issue with the hot water heater and water pressure initially. Luckily one of the people in our group is a handyman, and he was able to take care of the issue. The condo is very comfortable, but could use an update. If you do not want to rely on your own car or taxi service, bring comfortable shoes for the steep hike to and from. This could be a challenge for small children or the elderly. But otherwise, we had a wonderful time here.

Owner's Response: Water heater issue - I had turned it off when we left 2 weeks before. According to the renter, it had not been lit and turned on upon their arrival, as I had requested just before they arrived. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Nice stay!

  • 4 of 5

Nice unit in Amapass hills. Many steps down to town, and taxi for return. Spacious patio with great views day or night. Well equipped, newer appliances, safe, clean, quiet building.

Owner and manager both helpful and pleasant to deal with. We enjoyed our 6 week stay and would return again.

t condo that is fairly well equipped. Spacious, clean, safe, convenient location.

Lots of stairs down to town; taxi is a must for return. Full floor patio with great views.

Owner's Response: With regard to taxi back, if you are in shape, you can walk back, as we have done many times. However, the 165 stairs up to the condo from the lower gate is a workout and taking a taxi back is very tempting. We have done so often. From old town the cost of a taxi is only 40 pesos ($3) but I normally give the driver 50 pesos ($4). If you are looking for an optional cardio workout, take the stairs.
