About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms (king size bed, and queen and twin, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

Two-bedroom penthouse with an incredible view of Banderas Bay. The 'Girasol' condominium is located five miles south of downtown Puerto Vallarta. We are surrounded by a beautiful sandy beach which is great for laying in the sun, throwing Frisbees, or playing in the waves. The pool and our romantic restaurant both sit right on the ocean and also have a spectacular view of the bay. If you are looking for charm and beauty, you cannot beat this.

There are two different balconies in our unit to sit and enjoy the ocean and the beaches as well as a wonderful view of the city.

2 incredible Canopy Tours are within 25 minutes of the condo.....and Mismaloya Bay (the most famous beach in Puerto Vallarta with spectacular snorkeling, parasailing, and jet boating) is less than three miles down the road.

Thank you Weende for all your information and service. You Rock! And your condo in amazing.

Beautiful views and I still cannot stop hearing the ocean from the master bedroom. My stay in your condo was pleasant and my familia had no issue. My kids love it! This was my first stay out of the hotels world and your service and guidance made it worth it. My stay was too short, but if I visit Puerto Vallarta again, I will definitely stay at your PH again (if available), but for more days. THANK YOU!

Great place to stay. Very clean and inviting.

  • 5 of 5

First time to Puerto Vallarta. Wendee was very helpful and explained the area prior to our reservation. Convenient location. Bus comes about every 10 minutes right in front of the property. Downtown Puerto Vallarta is about 20 min north. This is a great place to stay if you don’t want to be right downtown. I would definitely stay here again. The absolute best thing about staying here was the sound of the waves and ocean surf!

Spacious unit with beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for couples retreat and we had fantastic time. Very spacious unit with beautiful view. One of the cleanest beaches I have ever been. They also have small local restaurant on the beach with very tasty dishes, great service and giant drinks :) If you are searching for quiet family place, this is perfect place to stay.

Experience of a Lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED Wendee's place in Puerto Vallarta. We had the honeymoon of our lives! The people are so nice and helpful. Playas Gemelas is beautiful and private. Wendee has all sorts of fun stuff to take to the beach. We did ziplining, snorkeling, ATV's and ate amazing food all week long. There is so much to do. We wish we could have stayed another week! The condominium is perfect! Lots of room and very cozy. Thank you so much for letting us go!
