About the property

Loft Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Ocean front, pool side loft condo with fantastic views for a most memorable vacation. Located in the Aria Ocean (formerly known as Acqua) complex, an exquisite development. Relax in the huge infinity pools, lap pool on the beach or in one of the many cabanas poolside. Sunsets are not to be missed. Explore the miles of beach. Major grocery store just a short cab ride away. Loft is on ground floor with master bedroom and bath on second floor. Second bedroom / bath on lower level. Full kitchen facilities are available for eating in, but be sure to try the many wonderful international cuisines available at restaurants in the down town area, the Marina, or neighboring towns like Bucerias (10 minutes away).

Aria Ocean is located in Nuevo Vallarta, approximately 20 minutes from Puerto Vallarta’s international airport. Cabs are easy to obtain, as Aria Ocean has hotel complexes on either side (just ask our security folks at entrance to call one for you) . City bus service to downtown and other locations is also available.

Do as much or as little as you want! The area offers many activities, such as para-sailing, golfing, deep sea fishing, whale watching, horseback riding on the beach – you can literally do something different everyday! Or just relax in the beautiful Aria Ocean outdoors and soak in the picture-perfect weather.

My loft is managed by Teresa of Banderas Property Management. You can be assured that she will make sure the place is ready for your arrival. And Teresa is readily available to make sure your stay in my loft is the best it can be!

About The Owner

I have traveled to the Vallarta area several times before making this purchase. I have found that a wintertime vacation here really helps me to bear the cold winters in Chicago.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Flamingos

Vallarta offers the most beautiful weather. The landscape of Aria Ocean is something you would see at a 5-star hotel. The infinity pools are huge!

What makes this condo unique

The infinity pool overflows around the edge to create a 5-inch shallow water border to the pool...wiggle your toes in the shallow or sit in it! The hammock is a good place to watch the sunset, take a nap, or just enjoy the sound of the ocean waves. Aria Ocean is in Nuevo Vallarta, which has one of the most beautiful beaches around. There is always a breeze off the ocean.

Four quebecers

  • 4 of 5

We (four adults) stayed at Donna`s condo for one month. We had a great time. The condo is well oriented with a view on the magnificent pools. It is nice and clean, the beds are comfortable, the kitchen has everything we need to prepare breakfast and cook hot meals. The BBQ worked well and we used it a lot. There are enough beach and bath towels. Donna is very kind and reliable as well as her property manager Teresa. We would return anytime.

Nice location and views

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent 5 weeks at this property. We enjoyed the location on the main floor with the patio overlooking the pools and ocean. The beach chairs were great - as there wasn't an umbrella we bought our own. We used the bbq often and enjoyed the Shaw tv. Walking to the MEGA Store and Bucerias were regular outings for us. The kitchen is equipped with the necessities - some extra dishes and containers for storing left overs would be useful

We had the misfortune of 2 possums getting into the ceiling of the basement bedroom initially making noise when they moved around and later causing a terrible odor when they died forcing our guests to sleep in the living room twice. The property manager Teresa and the staff from Aqua were great at taking care of this situation. Hopefully this as an isolated incident.

We would stay at this property again.

Owner's Response: Gwen, Thank you so much for your comments. I am so sorry about the possum incident and the inconvenience that it caused. It was an isolated situation as that has never happened before. I am very grateful to my property manager, Teresa, and administration, for taking care of the problem, and for taking steps to make sure it never happens again. Thank you for selecting my place for your vacation and hope you will consider it again for future vacations. Donna

Great Spot

  • 3 of 5

This is a great spot, as long as you don't mind taking a cab or renting car to get groceries or go to restaurants, which we knew beforehand. There is nothing in the area at al,l not even a coffee shop.....otherwise the location is great. The property and pools are immaculate and it is a very quiet spot (no noise after 10:00 pm. rule) for rest and relaxation with a wonderful walking & swimming beach (great for walking with shoes). The condo itself was also good. The place was clean, we had great linens and plenty of towels, a GREAT view and a great little BBQ but no BBQ tools. The reason I could not give it 5 starts is that the condo needs some updates and regular maintenance. There is a dishwasher but not enough dishes or cutlery to be able to use it. There is hardly enough cutlery if you are 4 people. The other thing is on the living area balcony there is only a table big enough for 2....3 max but that's pushing it. We did have a problem with the screen & the bathroom upstairs, but that was resolved quickly by the property management company (Theresa) once we reported it. The cleaning lady that I got from the Theresa was EXCELLENt!!!

This place has 5 star potential and seeing as we are not 5 star travellers it was fine although I feel we paid 5 star price but of course it was all we could get at the time because of last minute booking.

And I am so glad my property manager, Teresa, was able to assist where needed. Thank you for selecting my place for your vacation and hope you will consider a return in the future! Donna

Clean and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed five weeks at Donna's condo. It was freshly painted and very clean. Her manager was available for any questions and concerns and dealt with things promptly. This condo is in an ideal spot as it overlooks the pools and can be enjoyed on the patio with patio furniture, umbrella and a brand new Weber barbecue. The highlight of our vacation was to watch a giant turtle come out of the ocean and lay her eggs and then return to the water! This happened right on the beach beside Aqua just a few steps from the condo!

Owner's Response: Thanks rosie, for your comments. Turtle sightings and whale sightings are added attractions of Acqua! When I travel to Acqua for a stay, I always want my unit to be fresh and clean and comfortable; a home away from home. My renters should expect nothing less!

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent 2 weeks staying in this two bedroom condo. This location is perfect for the beach, just a few steps away and positioned in front of a massive swimming pool. We enjoyed breakfast on the patio each morning and watched an amazing lightning display from the patio one night. Shopping is a very short drive away and Old Town Puerto Vallarta is a short drive or cab ride. The condo was exceptionally clean and the décor was tasteful. One of the blinds was broken when we arrived but was fixed very quickly. The sofa was luxuriously comfortable! Great location – so convenient to shopping, dining, entertainment but out of the hustle and bustle of Old Town. The security is very good.

Wonderful stay

  • 4 of 5

My Mom and I stayed at this beautiful condo. The complex was very quiet. However, we assumed this was because it was early in the season. It also appears that some of the units are vacant. The security in the complex was great. We appreciated the close contact with the representative onsite. She responded immediately when we had concerns about needing a few lightbulbs and garbage bags and when the cord on the sliding glass door shade broke. There was someone there the next day to fix the shade and replace lightbulbs. We were not able to be there when the maintenance person came. However, she reassured us that our belongings were secure and she would be present when the work was done. We had no security issues. The only minor concern would be that the lighting could be better in the complex indoor hallways. As far as the unit itself, the upstairs master bedroom was beautiful. The view to the pool and beach/bay was magnificent. The main floor shares the same view. Both levels have a patio/balcony. The basement bedroom was a little dark. So, we did not use it. That bedroom would be fine if you had kids with you. The steps to the basement are somewhat steep and narrow. The kitchen is adequately supplied. Be aware that you will either need to take a taxi or bus to get most places if you do not have a car. The security/gait attendant obtained a taxi for us immediately when we needed one. Overall, it was a great stay in a beautiful area of Nuevo Vallarta. The condo is right on the beach. The condo is well furnished. The owner was easy to work with. I received my deposit back without issues/concerns.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you and your Mom enjoyed your vacation and am equally happy that my property manager was so attentive - she is the best! Acqua is a relatively new complex and does still have units to sell. But in general, January is a quieter month, at Acqua and other places in Puerto Vallarta - that's one of the reasons I like to go in January!
