About the Property

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Located at 326 Amapas Street in the Casa Corazon Bed and Breakfast Complex. If you are looking for one of the new luxury properties with over the top amenities, then this is NOT the place for you. However, if you like the look of traditional Mexico in a very local setting, this is the right place for you! The unit has undergone extensive remodeling during the summer of 2016. All rooms have been repainted and new fixtures have been added to the bathroom including new shower sliding doors. A new 40" smart flat screen TV has been installed with updated and faster internet service. The kitchen has been updated with a granite counter top including a new under-mount sink with new fixtures. The outdoor terrace has a new window by the kitchen and wooden privacy louvers in the dining area as well as a new wood-tone glass sliding patio door.

From the expansive terrace of this unit, you will be treated to amazing views of Banderas Bay, the charming town of Puerto Vallarta, and the green mountains of the Sierra Madre mountain range. During the winter months, you can actually watch whales and porpoises play in the ocean as you relax on the terrace. The terrace is what you will enjoy the most about this unit! It has a covered area that includes a full 'open air' kitchen with a dining and living area. The remainder of the terrace is open to the sky, so you can work on your sun tan or watch the sun set in the evening. If it gets a bit too hot for you, no problem. Just turn on the outside terrace fan or step inside and turn on the A/C.
Construction & Noise Update: please note that there is a great deal of construction everywhere in Puerto Vallarta. This is a great location, but there is construction all around the unit as well as within the property. I believe it is our obligation to our past and future guests to make sure you are properly informed of the current construction and noise. This unit is also located in a very popular "party" area. There is music from nearby beach clubs. Generally, this stops around 10p-11p.
The interior of the studio is decorated in a traditional rustic Mexican style. The bathroom consists of an oversized tile shower and a separate dressing room with lavatory. You will have plenty of storage with a closet in the dressing room, an antique bureau filled with many drawers, and an antique Mexican chest which has storage as well as a place to rest your luggage. Relax in the queen size bed while watching cable TV or your favorite DVD on the 40" flat screen. For your convenience, there is a desk complete with a book shelf, as well as high speed wi-fi.

Just outside the door of unit #905, is an elevator which will take you down to the beach level where you can enjoy Ritmo's Beach Club right on the ocean front. You can relax under a palapa all day as long as you purchase a drink or food. The waiters are very friendly and accommodating. During the afternoon, you will enjoy beachside music with a live band or local DJ.

If you walk down the beach away from the pier (south), you will come to the Mantamar Beach Club. This is a very upscale beach club complete with gourmet restaurant and infinity pool with a swim up bar. You have to purchase a day pass to use the facility, but you can always use the bar and restaurant. Note that a portion of the fee for the day pass includes food and drink. If you walk down the beach toward the pier (north), you will pass many restaurants and bars. In the following order you will pass Blue Chairs Beach Club, Sapphire Beach Club (requires a day pass), El Dorado, La Palapa, Amapas Sunset, Cuates Y Cuetes Langostino's, Playa Los Arcos Restaurant, Daiquiri Dick's, The Blue Shrimp and A Taste of Italy.

If you exit the building at the office level on the 8th floor, head to your left down the hill on Amapas Street. A small mini-super is on the right. You can find most anything you will need here as well as delicious fresh home made local food. If you like fresh Tamales, this is where to find them! Continue to the bottom and turn right when you come to the San Marino Hotel. You will pass Cafe Bohemio.Continue on and you will pass Piazzetta Italian Restaurant. Turn left at Trattoria Michel and you will pass by Cafe Tizoc, La Pizza Nostra, Cafe San Angel, Que Pasa, the famous Andale, Tsunami, and Kaiser Maximillian. Turn right on to Basilio Badillo and you will go by Cafe de Olla and Joe Jack's Fish Shack. As you can see, you are staying in the perfect location to walk to any number of restaurants, bars, and shops.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2009

About: The owners of this property came to Puerto Vallarta for the first time in 1985. It was 'Love at First Sight.' They have travelled all over the world, but always come back to this charming town to relax and visit local friends that have been made over the years. It is truly their home away from home.

Why Amapas, Puerto Vallarta, Jal., Mexico:
This is a perfect location for you to enjoy the traditional flavor of Mexico. You are in a safe local Mexican neighborhood; definitely not the touristic 'Hotel Zone.' This is where you can slow down, relax, and make new friends. Walk out onto your private terrace and the Pacific Ocean greets you. However, you are just around the corner from shopping, restaurants, and night clubs!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
You can enjoy a daily breakfast from the bed and breakfast section of the condominium for a very reasonable daily additional charge. Or, if you prefer to pass on this option, it is just a short stroll down to the Olas Altas area where you have access to many great restaurants for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In fact, you are within walking distance to a wide array of shopping, dining, and entertainment. If you prefer, someone at the front desk of the property will be happy to call a taxi for you, but don't be afraid to get out and explore on your own! The employees at the front desk will be available to check all guests in and out of the unit. Any balances owed at check -in or check-out may be paid at the front desk. Please consider tipping the staff if they have done something to help make your stay more pleasant. They are more than willing to assist you if you simply ask.
