Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

We invite you to enjoy our newly remodeled beachfront Condo in the hotel zone of Puerto Vallarta! You'll find yourself just a few minutes from downtown on one of the most beautiful beaches for miles around. Enjoy our condo with a magnificent 14th floor view of Banderas Bay, the Sierra Madre mountains and down town Puerto Vallarta.

This is our home away from home. It has one large bedroom with two brand new queen beds, new bedding including Tommy Bahama quilts, a marble shower and a sunken living room with sofa bed (can sleep two children), and a fully-equipped kitchen. Our property manager can even have the refrigerator stocked upon your arrival for a nominal fee. Sit on the balcony for the ultimate cup of coffee keeping an eye out for whales or dolphins just off shore or enjoy that romantic dinner and the sunset.

The former Holiday Inn completed major renovations to the rooms, pool, restaurants and public areas and is now the all-inclusive Sunscape Resort & Spa with three restaurants and bars, each with unique fare. You can purchase the all-inclusive at a discount for being our condo guest or enjoy the beautiful sandy beach where you can bring your own refreshments - a cooler and umbrella are available in the condo for your use.

Puerto Vallarta is said to be a very safe area with an unusually low crime rate. The area makes most of its living through tourism, so there is a definite interest in keeping tourists (and residents) safe and secure. Many people say they feel safer walking in Puerto Vallarta at night than they do in their home cities.

Buses and taxis are readily available (and very inexpensive) to take you to the Malecon (Seaside Boardwalk) or Old Town for shopping, art galleries, the fish market, sidewalk performers, fireworks from the Santa Maria replica pirate ship and international dining. The Marina is also nearby where you can see the cruise ships come in.

Reservations are made directly with me, the owner, a licensed and bonded real estate broker in the US. While on vacation, should you need anything at all, our property managers are located nearby and are accessible at all times. They even offer personal shopping services at a nominal fee. Our goal is to provide you with the ultimate worry free vacation so you will want to be our guest again.

About Mike Schmitt

Mike and Betty Schmitt are long time residents of St. Cloud, Minnesota. We enjoy fishing on nearby Clearwater Lake in the summer and are involved with the local antique car club and Lions Club. We also enjoy evening cruises in our '69 mustang.

Mike Schmitt purchased this condo in 2010

Why Mike Schmitt chose Puerto Vallarta

We vacationed in Puerto Vallarta just one time and fell in love with this beautiful city, walks on the beach and its very friendly people.

What makes this condo unique

We love to eat some of our own meals on the balcony and go out to one of the many fabulous restaurants on other days. A large grocery store called Soriana is just a short walk where you can buy fresh fish and wonderful bakery goods. There are many other shops here as well. This building is also located right next door to the new La Isla shopping mall and cinema.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We want to thank you for a very memorable vacation that we will never forget. We enjoyed the room very much and the awesome view and pool. You are a true professional and I appreciate you getting back to me so promptly anytime I had a question. I would recommend you to anybody. We look forward to coming back again to this property or another one of your properties.

Great Oceanview Location

  • 5 of 5

The condo was more than I expected. They provide you with all your vacation needs. I loved how it was a fully stocked kitchen and all the beach equipment! We didn't have to worry about not being prepared for the beach because they have an ice chest, ice blocks, and even an insulated beach bag. It was very close to a Walmart and Sams Club where we bought our food and and bottled water. The condo had the best ocean view and it was in the corner so it felt very private as well. We were so close to downtown, like a 10 minute drive. I would definitely recommend this place and would love to stay here again.

They've thought of EVERYTHING!

  • 5 of 5

From the view, to the fresh limes and cold brews in the fridge upon arrival, Mike & Betty KNOW how to make a family FEEL like family! Wow! Even the condo TOWELS say WELCOME (no tiny, rough towels in this condo - big & thirsty towels await!). I know most folks don't cook, but we did and they've thought of everything there, too. The beds were soft and comfy, pillows were perfect and plentiful, location & staff at every turn were attentive and warm. This is paradise. We can't wait to return!

Beautiful ocean view!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for three nights the week before Christmas. This condo is beautiful. Exactly as advertised. The view is amazing. You can see the ocean and hear the waves hitting the shore. The condo was stocked with anything you might need. Very close (3 blocks) to a grocery store. Walkable (about a mile) to downtown. Inexpensive taxi if you prefer or a city bus. Mike and Betty couldn't have been more responsive. Every question I asked before I left and while I was there was answered within minutes. The onsite management is also responsive. This condo building is part a Holiday Inn hotel complex. The hotel building is next to the condo building. There is a pool and restaurant. As a condo guest, you can use the pool and chairs and the chairs on the beach. However, if you want to use the bar or restaurant here, you must pay $50 pp/ day to be considered all-inclusive. We didn't want to eat every meal here so we didn't sign up. You cannot bring your own food or drinks to the pool but can to the beach and th condo has everything you need to enjoy the beach. Chairs, and umbrella, a cooler, a cart to get it all there, lots of plastic cups if you want to use them at the beach. Other than slowish wifi, we had no problems (and slow wifi really isn't a problem) at all while we were there. We sat on the balcony a ton and enjoyed several nice restaurants downtown...some recommended by the Schmitts. We had family staying at the building next door so we went between both resorts. I would highly recommend this condo. A great value for the price. We would definitely stay again if in this same area. Oh, and we had our deposit back before we made it back home I think. Incredibly fast. Thanks Mike!!!

Perfect holiday location Marty and Linda

  • 5 of 5

We loved Puerta Vallarta and the condo was perfect for us. It had all the amenities to have our own meals and lots of space for 2 people. Loved eating breakfast and watching the sunrise in the morning and eating dinner and watching the beautiful sunsets from the 14th floor with the panoramic ocean harbor view,

We have already told many friends about our great holiday and we would definitely come back again.
