About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

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!!

About Cheryl Lee Andersson

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 :)

Cheryl Lee Andersson purchased this condo in 2008

Why Cheryl Lee Andersson chose Puerto Vallarta

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

When searching for the perfect vacation rental,

the sheer volume of possibilities can be overwhelming. At some point,

you have to take a chance. My husband and I and our 3 kids stayed

here from March 10-19 (2009) and had such a lovely holiday. Playa Gemelas

is the cleanest, most beautiful beach I have ever seen in Puerto Vallarta.

It was also quiet and allowed us to truly relax and take in the surrounding

beauty without being distracted by throngs of noisy people. The apartment

is huge, airy, and comfortable and even had a cupboard filled with drawing

paper and felts for the kids - we also found water toys which was a huge hit.

The pool is sparkling clean, the grounds around the apartment are lush with

flowers and immaculate lawns. There is a restaurant right next-door which

offers good food, excellent drinks, and warm service. If your children are

old enough, you can even have a quick "date night" without the kids as you're

literally in whistling distance. A short bus or cab ride takes you into town

where you can spend the day shopping, eating, and enjoying a real cultural

experience. And at the end of the day, it was so nice for us to return to our little spot

in paradise, put the kids to bed, and sit on the deck with a

cup of tea, looking

up at the stars and hearing the waves crashing the beach right below.

I am so looking forward to returning to this place. We took a chance renting

this condo and are so glad we did - the owner, Cheryl-Lee, is an enthusiastic

host and was always available to answer any questions or concerns. If you

rent this condo and are not completely satisfied with your holiday, I would

be truly shocked. This is perfect for families - I will never stay in a hotel again.

Great Family Destination

  • 5 of 5

We just got back after 10 days at this condo. This is the second time we stayed in this area with our kids and Cheryl Lee's condo was perfect. They truly do make the condo feel like your at home. The beach has to be one of the nicest in all of PV. Most days you are lucky if there are a total of 30 - 40 people on the beach. The location is south of Town, however for only 130 Peso's, you can either catch a cab or jump on the local bus for 8 Peso's. Both the cab and bus stops are right at the entrance and are very safe. The condo is exactly as shown and explained with one exception, THEY HAVE TSN, fellow Canadian's know the importance of this :). Looking forward to coming back.

This was an amazing vacation. The condo had everything you would need. It's close to town, zoo,fishing and restaurants. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Being able to release the baby turtles is a plus. This condo is great for kids,with beach toys and movies and games. Cheryl Lee is very helpful with any questions or needs you may have. Can't wait till next time!

Dream vacation

  • 5 of 5

The building has 2 large pools with breathtaking views of the bay surrounded by a large and beautiful tropical garden . Staff is very kind and they do a great job in keeping everything in immaculate condition . People and families are very friendly so my boys made wonderful friends . The beach is the most beautiful of PV with its white sand , transparent turquoise color of the sea surrounded by the tropical jungle vegetation .The apartment has a gorgeous view , it is lovely decorated and has all the amenities necessary for a great stay. We have tried many rentals in PV over the years we are so happy we finally found the one that matches everything we were looking for!

We shall return!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked through the welcoming front door, travel weary and city-stressed, we knew we'd found a haven of peace and tranquility. Playas Gemelas is conveniently situated, close to transport, restaurants and the ideal beach. The onsite amenities are excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. Every single sunset was postcard-perfect. The surround-sound scenic splendour goes beyond words. The only downside was time's ticking clock... which we ignored for ten blissful days and nights. Come for a week. Stay for two. You won't regret a minute.

The best value in PV!

  • 5 of 5

This owner has thought of EVERYTHING! We had a 10 day stay and were sad to come home :(. Cheryl Lee was a pleasure to deal with and very accommodating. The staff at this condominium were very helpful to us and always very pleasant. A little piece of heaven that we will definitely stay again!

Oh goodness, how hard it was to come home! After several years of staying in town, we have now found THE place we will be staying from now on. The Playa Gemelas buildings and beach are just wonderful, somewhat private, with a roped off swimming area, and very few vendors. The condo itself is amazing, with great views, and everything that you will need. There is a small restaurant close by, and a little store. We rented a car, and had easy access to parking at all times. The drive back and forth to town was a piece of cake. Cheryl Lee is a pleasure to work with, as is ALL the staff on site. We highly recommend a stay here!!
