About the property

1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 3-4)

Our 'casita' sits within a gated complex w/24 hr. security, 2-3 minutes from Playa Los Muertos Beach & Pier. The home, completed in 2008, is in the heart of Puerto Vallarta's famous Zona Romantica, a short, Mexican block from popular Olas Altas street, where you'll find PV's wonderful, European-style, wrought-iron sidewalk cafe's, numerous art studios, indigenous 'Huichole' art items, & the popular 'Flea Market'. Walk along Isla Cuale to have lunch, and look at 'one of a kind' handmade art and gifts. Treasures for both the upscale or bargain shopper can all be found within 6 blocks of your front door.

The casita has 1 BR-2 BA(about 900 sq ft.), is air conditioned, has an ocean view of the Bahia de Banderas off the large, window-surrounded 12' x 13' patio, that you enter from either the living room or bedroom. You also have a very nice view of our gardens from your private bedroom balcony, The Bay, and city can be seen from your living room & kitchen. Sorry, but absolutely NO SMOKING is allowed inside the residence!! It is permitted outside on the patio and in public areas. We sit on a slight rise, 3rd fl., so we enjoy not only western views of the Bay, but a wonderful view of the 'el Centro' area. The Sierra Madre Mountains are to the east. Only steps away from everything.... you'll save $'s not needing to take taxis to get to the best restaurants, shopping, beach-combing & swimming.

This small home is equipped with everything you'll need to relax & enjoy your vacation. The decor and colors were picked to reflect the ocean and trees of blues, deep greens, light yellows, & rich woods. All the furnishings are comfortable, & though lovely, they're designed to be used, rather than stared at. Spectacular sunsets & the evening fireworks from the 'Pirate Ship Marigalante' (about 9 pm) are just 2 of the daily treats you'll enjoy from your patio. In the distance, the cathedral bells ring during the day and are a charming reminder of a simpler time. The palm tree sways beside your bedroom balcony & large patio, providing local birds an ideal spot to rest & occasionally you can hear them sing. Mature gardens & flowers encourage a range of local (harmless!) wildlife, from iguanas to hummingbirds.

One of the best 'Infinity' pools you will ever see offers expansive views to the bay, city, mountains & beyond. There is a hot tub, community Bar-B-Q & kitchen, a large palapa, a private gym with A/C & windows to the pool & city, with modern workout equipment. There are also all kinds of activities in the vicinity. Sports bars, nightclubs (some with shows), restaurants, shopping, numerous art galleries, the famous 'Flea Market', within walking distance (2-6 blks.), and entertainment for people of all persuasions. But remember, leave the noisy party at the nightclub when you return home, as we are not a 'Spring Break' hotel! Relax, and enjoy Puerto Vallarta at it's finest!

About Christina Fahey-Matias

When I can't be in PV, relaxing on the patio and looking out onto the beautiful Bay, you can find me at my home office in Vancouver, on medical insurance billing (exciting, right?!) I enjoy sailing, snorkeling, scuba diving, art, theater, music, dancing, hiking, red wine, and of course, Puerto Vallarta! I traveled quite a bit as a child in a military family, and those experiences led to a life-long interest in other cultures and people. Mexico is such a wonderful blend of different cultures, that I never cease to be interested in learning more about it and visiting with it's friendly people. I'm in my 60's, andsingle. I hope to someday live in PV 9-10 months out of the year.

Christina Fahey-Matias purchased this condo in 2008

Why Christina Fahey-Matias chose Emiliano Zapata

With the types of interests and hobbies we enjoy, Vallarta is one of the few places we've been to that can offer it all, and at a reasonable price. The weather is beautiful, the Bay of Banderas is amazing with all it's water activities to enjoy, the food is fantastic. Our small home is located in a natural setting which was carefully designed, and then built around all the existing landscaping-trees and walking paths set in flower gardens. You'll feel as if you've almost stepped into the proverbial 'Garden of Eden' kidding! You'll be able to see the Bay, day and night, from the veranda. How does it get any better than that?

What makes this condo unique

Broadband internet, and 2 seperate phone services: local service for Puerto Vallarta, AND a 2nd phone service (with unlimited minutes) to the USA and Canada.

You just have to try the 'Canopy Tour' zip-lines! These are heavy duty steel cables that cross thru the jungle and over crevasses and canyons. You 'zip' along them in strong mountain climbing harnesses and it's a blast! There are 3 of them in the Vallarta area, and the easiest one has it's office only a few blocks from our location. AND....the Pirate Ship Marigalante!! It's a lunch or sunset affair which includes dinner and the neatest show you've ever seen, with Pirates swinging from the masts and ropes on the sailing ship...the evening show has great fireworks and it's ALL done out on the beautiful Bay of Banderas! Worth the $'s, for sure!
