About the property

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)


Traditional Mexican design, full a/c, walk everywhere, no car required.

The roof top terrace has magnificent views of the Bay of Banderas, sunsets colored by more shades than seem to exist in the rainbow. Seeing dolphins and even whales in the wild, flocks of pelicans flying in the sky and the courageous parasailers add to the enjoyment. A great place to relax or take a dip in the pool. Imagine a morning with your coffee and book by the pool and lunch on the beach or nearby restaurant.

Evenings in Puerto Vallarta are magical, whether strolling on the malecon, while enjoying local entertainers (musicians, artists, mimes, dancers and more), or enjoying a dinner accompanied by mariachi singers.

Everything is within walking distance.

We have 24 hour security and a gated entrance into an artfully decorated lobby with oceanview.

There is Wi-Fi accessibility throughout the building. Secured parking garage is included in the price.

Keywords: Studio, 1 bath, sleeps two, couple or two single individuals. Condo has two beds - one queen and a comfortable futon.

Why Marion S Franc chose Jalisco

I visited Puerto Vallarta in 1985 and fell in love with the place. I did not have the opportunity to return again until 1998, since then I visited frequently and purchased my own place in 2003.

What makes this condo unique

Wonderful location!!!! Viewing the magnificent sunsets from the rooftop terrace. Experiencing the Mexican culture, whether at the local outdoor artist market or strolling the Malecon. Great restaurants and entertainment. Total relaxation!!!

Could not be more PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

I have been traveling to Puerto Vallarta for more than 15 years. Never before did I enjoy an apartment as much as this one. The accommodation had everything imaginable to allow me to feel right at home. The view from the balcony was beautiful and relaxing, private and quiet. The kitchen was so well equipped, I was able to host friends for dinner. The bed was more comfortable than my own at home. The building was meticulously maintained, bright and clean. The rooftop deck and pool sparkled. And the views, breathtaking! Never having been a picture taker, my phone holds more pictures of sunsets from the roof than I have taken in the past two years. The security and maintenance people were friendly, helpful and attentive. The location is convenient to anything and anywhere you may want to walk in the city. Put all this rambling together and you find it all comes together with some of the friendliest people from North America coming to Puerto Vallarta to enjoy themselves and one another.

Absolutely Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our five-week stay! Pre-trip communication with the owner (whom we had the wonderful opportunity to meet on several occasions while staying there) was excellent.

It is located very centrally and close to absolutely everything. Walk out your door and you’re on the Malecon (boardwalk) and close to literally hundreds of restaurants in El Centro and Zona Romantica including Vitea, an excellent restaurant located on the main floor of the complex facing the Malecon. You’re also close to galleries, shops and banks. It’s got to be one of the best-located condos in the region, in our estimation. The entire region is walkable from this unit. Also, using the local bus system (so much fun and adventure) is so accessible from this location as well.

This north-facing studio suite faces the side street so it’s a very quiet unit – bright but the sun doesn’t shine in directly. We didn’t use the A/C the entire time we were there as the unit has several fans if needed. It is well-stocked with everything you could ever need to have a comfortable stay. The bed was comfortable. Bathroom – large is size. We slept with the patio doors open (with screen) every night and were lulled to sleep with the sound of the ocean waves.

The suite is very clean and has maid service once a week. She will even do your laundry if you wish or you’re able to use the complex’s very clean laundry rooms (tokens for washer/dryer purchased from security guard for a few pesos).

The roof-top deck and swimming pool located one floor above this suite is gorgeous. It was definitely a favourite spot of ours. Never crowded with plenty of comfortable loungers and numerous patio tables with chairs and umbrellas– a perfect place for sun or shade with a fantastic view of the entire Bay. Clean bathrooms are also available on the roof-top deck. Relax in the sun and hear the crash of the waves below.

The entire complex is well taken care of by friendly maintenance staff and is kept very clean. The friendly security guards (24/7) are very helpful should you have any questions and are always there to greet you with a smile as you come and go from your vacation ‘home’.

The complex has an elevator as well as an underground parking garage should you require these features. Wi-fi is available throughout the building. Wheelchair accessible.

Thanks to the owner for the opportunity to stay at this perfectly located suite. We hope to return in the future!

First let me say that we really enjoyed our dealings with the owner. Super nice and so easy to deal with. The location of the condo is perfect. Right on the malecon in Old Town. Close to the beach, restaurants and shopping. The condo was very clean and well equiped. Enjoyed the condo balcony in the a.m. for coffee and we got to see schools of dolphins swimming in the bay close to shore. The rooftop pool area was very nice with lounge chairs a few tables with umbrellas. Plenty of shade during the day if you prefer not to sun. The pool was small but never crowded when we were there. The building is very secure with 24 hour security. The bulding is very well maintained. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

This was the perfect place for my fiance and I. Lots of great places within walking distance, and the roof top pool was fabulous. The property manager was very nice and extremely accomodating. We didn't spend much time in the room, and we were only there for a week, but the room offers almost everything you need for a comfortable stay.

11/21/11 thru 1/14/12

  • 3 of 5

Our stay was eight weeks, at this unit, and two at Puesto Del Sol.

Unit was comfortable,after I cleaned to my liking,maid needs a lesson on cleaning.During our stay the new malecon was dedicated,so 45 days of celebration, along with Christmas from 12/1 to 12/12,WOW for noise, off the street, church bells ringing, and malecon, and vendors, as they load and unload in front of entry to unit,right below us, could not open windows for air,as soot from the road would create a greasy film on the patio and fans made too much noise, keeps you awake,and air conditioner,is WAY to expensive for owner. At that time of the yr., the weather is comfortable,later in the evenings..

The location is very handy,but so was the Puesto del Sol,the later being 100% quieter..

The employees of Malecon Dos are the best,the highlight of our stay,I miss their friendly way,smiles,

and helpfullness.

We purchased some cleaning supplies,all the toilet paper,and asked to be reimbursed, and owner did.

I see now the utilities, etc., are now extra, that is a hassle, as the caretaker, NEVER shows up on the appointed time, taking away from your vacation time.Other renters in the complex had to deal with that, had to WAIT around for them to show up,sometimes two days,for them to tell you how much to pay for utilities,annoying to say the least.Owners should handle this minor detail..However I can understand a hefty utility bill, if renters use air conditioner,they are very expensive.

The unit is adequate for two people, bathroom,was nice,lots of room,easy to clean.

Security was maintained,elevators broke down alot, so always used the stairs,good exercise.

Don;t take this wrong, our stay was great, would stay again,after all this is Mexico, a wonderful place to visit,harder to maintain with weather,humidity,etc..

Malecon is beautiful,nice having to watch for vehicles,but still miss the old malecon. People are great,

We did miss American food,so 10 weeks was too long for us.

Thanks Marion for allowing us to rent.
