Property description

This Beachfront/Oceanfront 1500 sq. ft, 3 bedroom, 2 bath condo offers spectacular panoramic views of Banderas Bay and backs onto the verdant jungle of the Sierra Madre Mountain range. It is situated on the finest beach (away from crowds and vendors) in the Puerto Vallarta area. Off the Master Bedroom is a balcony where you can greet the morning sun rising over the green hills with a delicious cappucino. A long balcony overlooks the ocean where you can watch dolphins at play or whales passing by during season. Nothing separates you from the white sandy beach other than the 3 inviting, heated swimming pools. These are child friendly with shallow ends and separated areas for the kids. There is also a shady kids' pool with a small waterfall.

The exquisitely maintained grounds and gardens are rich with tropical trees, plants and flowers. There is a turtle sanctuary onsite with baby turtle releases at sunset during hatching season. Reception will call everyone to let them know when this is happening.

There is a mini-mart next door for all your basic needs and well as a wonderful Palapa beach restaurant. Taxis are conveniently located and buses could not be easier, running every 10 minutes and will take you directly into town. This is a perfect location, away from the noise and the crowds but only 10 minutes from all the exciting restaurants, cafes, shops and galleries in the quaint town of Puerto Vallarta.

There is very friendly and helpful 24 hr. reception (English speaking) as well as security 24/7. Friendly staff are ready to help with any of your questions or concerns. There is a library with private phone booths and very cheap int'l rates (eg: 20 cents USD/min to Canada and US). The library is also equipped with computers with internet connection or wi-fi for your laptop. There is a nominal charge for this. We have a washer/dryer in the condo as well. Please feel free to call with any questions and we wish you a wonderful time in PV!

Be sure to take advantage of our restaurant grade margarita maker! Nothing is better than sipping your favourite drink while watching the amazing sunsets that Puerto Vallarta offers! Enjoy!!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Our family is crazy about traveling the world over, but our favorite place hands down is our beach condo at Playas Gemelas, Puerto Vallarta. Kent's background is in antique conservation, mostly in northern Europe while at home in Alberta he works in Oil and Gas Land reclamation. I, Cheryl Lee, love working as a home support for a young woman with multiple disabilities. Annika, 12, loves to carve wood and climb trees. Lukas 14 loves to act and sing. That's a little about us :)

Why the Owner Chose South Zone, Puerto Vallarta, Jal., Mexico:
We chose to buy our condo at Playas Gemelas because it is the loveliest beach, with unarguably the finest sand in the whole PV area! It is so peaceful here, the waves are great for swimming and body surfing, the pools are delightful, there is never a crowd and we are so close to the 'action' of PV - just a quick 10 minutes away by bus or taxi. Many days we never leave our place as there are restaurants and a mini mart next door. We also found PV and area to be so safe. We feel more secure walking the streets of PV than we do in our own city of Calgary.
