Spacious but very shabby
Rented upper unit for 3 months - very spacious, small view of ocean to enjoy sunsets from balcony (will disappear due to condo being built in front). Proximity to beach/Old Town ideal. Bed comfortable however, beyond that,some serious issues. Bed sheets threadbare/badly stained as were towels, many of which had rips/tears. Kitchen pots/pans unusable, plates and glasses chipped/dirty as were eating utensils, cooking utensils were either rusted or broken. Stove very old and grungy. Fridge worked well. Bought our own pots, pans, dishes and utensils. Orange couches in photos unusable springs are gone – upholstery worn hence orange throws to cover wear. Junk stored in unit – 3 floor fans that didn’t work, old rusted exercise bike and some big speakers – all took up valuable floor space. Toilet was disgusting when we moved in, had to clean ourselves to remove ... and shower curtain had mould on it. Spent several hours cleaning kitchen/fridge to make useable. First 3 weeks, no internet. Owner’s agent (Ed) was rude in his handling of it, making us feel we had caused it (yet after talking to others in 2 buildings that shared internet signal, was a building-wide issue evident for weeks before we arrived) and owner was completely indifferent. At one point owner emailed after 18 days without internet -- we were being pushy and internet was not part of rent despite having emails from her to contrary from when we booked. Worst part was people in unit below (owned by same owner) were chain smokers who smoked non-stop on balcony (beneath ours). If they left the balcony, a lighted cigarette was usually left in ashtray. Smoke drifted up to our balcony/into unit at all hours often waking us up at 5:00 am. Ran fans 24-hours a day to keep fumes at bay but could always smell smoke in unit. Balcony was virtually unusable because of smoke fumes. They also had a small dog that barked non-stop whenever they went out –gone for an hour, it barked for an hour. Other annoying thing was number of times we arrived to find a service person in unit, without any supervision. All our personal things in plain view (laptops, watches, etc) – no notice ever given of these appointments. Not having safe in the unit, this was very disturbing. Overall, unit is very shabby/run down – it badly needs upgrading. For the money paid, there are better alternatives to rent in the immediate area. Definitely will not be staying again despite wanting to find a unit we can return to each year..
I have stayed here for 10 years and would stay nowhere else
The owner is wonderful to work with and every time I come I see nice improvements. The apartment is open and comfortable with so many beautiful vistas including an ocean view. It is very secure and perfect for my needs. The maid is wonderful and honest and so friendly. I can walk to all these great places and it is just over a block from my favorite beach. I couldn't be happier here and would highly recommend it to anyone.
Charming place and location! A feeling of what it's like to live in Old Town.
My partner and I have stayed at this property for short and lengthy stays over the past ten years. Situated to the South end of Old Town a few blocks from anything you would need or want to do. Upon arrival you will notice a well lit, secure gated entrance. The open airy layout with private bedroom is surrounded by balconies on two sides. The maid service is very honest, reliable and efficient, she will remember your names during your stay and when you return for your next visit. I am certain she has worked this property for many many years and it is always welcome to see that familiar face. This apartment is amply stocked should you need to prepare small meals, and there are many small restaurants, stores, pharmacies and ATM's within a safe short walk. There is a large, large, tiled shower that is very welcoming after a day of shopping or beach activities. We enjoying coming to this particular property as we imagine what it would be like to live in this authentic part of Puerto Vallarta. This unit is set-back off of the street towards the ocean view, eliminating nonexistent street noises...although you may hear a neighboring rooster crowing or a donkey serenade during your stay. I am pleased to have recommended this apartment to many friends and family over the years and have always received prompt attention to any issues from management/owner from the time of booking and throughout our stay. Some day we may bring our dog along with us, as I think this unit is pet-friendly. Bottom line...great value, true mexican charm.
Excellent Location and Best Deal in Zona Romantica
I have stayed at Apartments in this property several times and I have always been very pleased by the location, value, and accommodations! There is nothing better for the price in the area. I will certainly return!
