About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms (king size bed, & queen & 2 twin bunks , 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.

About Wendee Truman

We love our time at the Girasol. We try something new every visit, from zip lining, to para sailing, to snorkeling, to deep sea fishing. There is something for everyone. We know you will love staying in our 'home away from home'. Give us a try!

Wendee Truman purchased this condo in 1995

Why Wendee Truman chose South Zone

We chose this area/condo because my parents started coming down here many years before we purchased and loved it. Now all my family have units here. It's a great honeymoon, Christmas, spring, or fall get away for us. Having access to the fresh water pool, and twin beaches right outside our door is amazing. If you want to bring your gang down, let me know. We have access to renting units 301, 205, 211, and PH 14.

What makes this condo unique

The fresh water heated pool is great for year round swimming. The beaches are smooth to walk on, and beautiful to play in. The restaurant has wonderful, affordable food, and the mini super on the main floor is perfect for the items we might have forgotten, or just to have a treat, or extra snack for game nite or to add to our meals. The onsite laundry facility is perfect for mid week cleaning of linens or towels, and there is a work out room as well. A library is offered too, to trade books and read to your hearts content. The view from our balcony is priceless, as our the sunsets you'll see. There is easy access to the bus or a cab to get to anywhere you want to go. Los Arcos is close by, as is Mismaloya, or El Eden, or Chico's paradise, or town and the malecon and lots of shopping. Its really a paradise to visit PV and the Girasol.

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 beaches with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time with our 3 kids who are 5, 5, and 6 years. Plenty of entertainment for them just with the beaches and pool in the property. The pool has a good amount of shallow depth so they were able to play without a lot of worry. We did rent a car which was great to have as we went into downtown PV most days. Parking was a nightmare (be warned). Did a day trip to the zoo and Mismaloya (zoo was a hit, beach we promptly turned around and went back to our beach after walking to Mismaloya). Thanks Wendee. Your condo was perfect for our family. Clean, well stocked, with great views from the dual balconies!

A perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Wendee’s penthouse was everything we hoped it would be. The view is fantastic; the sound of the waves soothes the soul. The two beaches, pool, restaurant and small market here at the Girasol provide everything you need for a relaxing stay, while the Romantic Zone and Malacon are a 10 minute cab ride or short bus ride away. The sunsets from the open restaurant, with the surf only feet away, make it a special place. Lastly, Wendee and the staff make this a thoroughly enjoyable and welcoming destination. We look forward to coming back.

Two rooms with a view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the penthouse at Girasol Sur. The view of the Pacific from the balcony was spectacular with glimpses of whales breaching and manta rays swimming by in a leisurely way and a beautiful beach right below.

The staff were very friendly as were the other residents. Monday and Friday evenings at the restaurant/bar were great fun with live bands playing. The bus stopped right out front every 10 minutes so getting to the "old town" was very easy. Our first time staying in the south zone and we found it a bit quieter and very relaxing.

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!
