About the property

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

This is a beautiful, large, airy, 4th floor corner condo unit in a lovely building with classic Mexican charm located on popular Los Muertos Beach in the heart of Old Town Vallarta, (referred to by the locals as 'Zona Romantica'). The famous Malecon has been extended to Lazaro Cardenas Park located right next door to us. This offers an easy, well lit, traffic free, oceanfront stroll to the downtown (el Centro) area where the arches, town square, and plenty of hustle & bustle are located. Our building is in the ideal location - within walking distance of all the best restaurants and art galleries Puerto Vallarta has to offer! We are also just a short walk down the beach to the pier where many of the water excursions depart from.

If you are looking for a well appointed unit in a privately owned, secure, building in an incredible location, then THIS IS THE PLACE for you! There is a receptionist on site 24 hrs, a full time building administrator, and maintenance staff. Maid service is provided 3 days per week. However, if you are looking for a 'resort' style vacation, this is NOT it. This is a privately owned building with full time residents. This is NOT the place for 'spring breakers'. One of the resorts out in the Hotel Zone would be a better choice for that type of vacation experience.

Owner accepts credit card payments via PayPal.

About Becki Thomas

We fell in love with Puerto Vallarta the first time we came here! It truly is a magical place!

Becki Thomas purchased this condo in 2007

Why Becki Thomas chose Emiliano Zapata

We love this area and this building. There is no better location in Vallarta in our opinion! We purchased a 1 bedroom unit in this building in 2000 and then pounced at the opportunity to upgrade to this 2-bedroom, 2-bath corner unit when the 89 year old previous owner finally conceded to sell it to us.

What makes this condo unique

Location! Location! Location! There are always more great restaurants to get to (most all within walking distance) than meals to be eaten while in town. I never tire of sitting on the balcony in the mornings, sipping my coffee, watching the park wake up and the children coming to the little school on the other side of the park. The 'muffin man' often comes by with his tray of fresh items from the bakery and calls up, to see if I'm out on the balcony. It's truly a magical place!

Convenient location with a wonderful view!

  • 5 of 5

We found this wonderful condo through the recommendation of a family member. We arrived before our scheduled check-in time and they were so helpful in keeping our luggage safe so we could sit at the beach across the street and drink some margaritas! The location is fantastic...steps away from shops and restaurants. The building is charming with a nice courtyard and a pool on the roof with great views. Our favorite thing about our stay here was the awesome large balcony on 2 sides to view the city or the sunsets! Next time we hope to stay longer!

Added to our Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We lucked into this condo as a last minute planned trip. It is an excellent location on the beach and near everything we love about Puerto Vallarta. I somehow missed seeing that there was a pool, but there was, and we enjoyed it every afternoon.

The building itself is excellently maintained as well.

We will definitely be booking here again!

Beautiful Condo with a fantastic view!

  • 5 of 5

We found this beautiful gem of a condo on VRBO and we couldn't have been happier with our choice! This large condo was perfect for our family of 5. The views are outstanding from the hugh wrap around deck and we especially enjoyed sitting and watching the sunset each night. This location has it all! The building, and the condo are very well maintained. The people at the front desk are delightful and very helpful too! We REALLY enjoyed being so close to all our favorite restaurants and coffee shop "A page in the Sun". It was a pleasure working with Becki as she was very helpful, easy to get ahold of, and everything was as promised. We look forward to going back and staying once again in this beautiful condo!

Fabulous condo, excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for 2 weeks in mid July. The condo was perfect for our family of 5. The wrap around deck looks out on the ocean and the mountains, we really enjoyed this feature of the unit. The condo is very well maintained, there is maid service 3 times a week and Juan at the front desk went over and above what would be expected. He was very helpful with restaurant tips, transit information and great places to visit in the area. The unit has wifi included which made our three teens happy! The building is very secure and safe, we felt at ease in the morning heading out for a quick run or some exercise and having the 3 teens stay in the condo. The location is great, lots of good restaurants and street food vendors, an OXXO just around the corner, a SuperFarmacia is a few blocks away for a few groceries and just past that is the fruit market. We bought fresh pineapples and mangos that were delicious and only cost a few pesos. Steve and Becki are GREAT to deal with, very helpful, easy to get a hold of, they send all the information needed for arrival to the condo as well as what there is in the area. We met such amazing people that worked in the area! A Page in the Sun is on the same street as Plaza Mar, it is a great coffee shop with homemade food items as well as a huge selection of used books (Lindsey the owner is wonderful), Figueroas Burritos, with Kai and Luis has ridiculously affordable and tasty food as well as fun and friendly owners, Cisneros has very fresh Mexican seafood, Panchos Takos is another very affordable restaurant serving mexican food, Bella Napoli is owned by very lively and fun Italians and have amazing pizza, The Blue Shrimp is a beach side restaurant offering beach chairs with food and drink purchases and where we spent our days on the beach, La Lagosta Loco always made us fresh mahi-mahi sticks, shrimp sticks and fresh oysters and across from them is Caramoncito with burritos, tacos and wonderful crepes! We walked to Chonchas Chinas beach, took the transit to Mismaloya Beach, walked the Malecon, took transit to the Marina for a tour to Marietas Islands, and also took the transit to Aquadventuras Park. We like to stay where we can walk to places, transit to areas, eat in local restaurants and experience different places and people. You cannot go wrong staying here! We will definitely be back! Thanks Steve and Becki for sharing a wonderful place!
