Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms (Sleeps 4-6) or 2 Bedroom

Find indulgence beyond your dreams – starting the moment you arrive at “The Beach House,” a two-bedroom, plus den/bedroom, beachfront escape housed within Icon Vallarta, an upmarket condo complex in the Hotel Zone.

Your personal travel concierge—who I provide for Beach House guests in addition to Icon’s concierge team—will be waiting for you in the lobby. He’ll handle your luggage and show you to the elevator, which opens directly into your two-bedroom condo, poised over the glassy Pacific on Banderas Bay.

For the rest of your trip, your private Beach House Concierge will be available by phone to answer questions, make recommendations, and assist in an emergency.

Before unpacking, pour yourself a drink, stretch out in the twin loungers on the condo’s balcony, and look over your bare toes at the sea, the mountains, and the palm-tree-lined beach.

It’s heaven on Earth – and you’ve found it.

VIP TREATMENT

Resort-style amenities—in a setting much more intimate than a resort—make Icon Vallarta exceptional.

Available perks include 24-hour concierge, valet parking, and security detail; currency conversion; dry cleaning & laundry; spa and fitness services; beachfront bar and grill; and an Olympic-sized infinity swimming pool perched at the edge of the ocean.

And you also get to live in a residential property that’s comfortable and far from cookie-cutter.

I own two Icon Vallarta units and designed the interiors myself. My goal from the beginning was to create exceptional living spaces that feel like home—but kicked up a notch.

“WORTHY OF MAGAZINE SPREAD”

The above quote is from one happy visitor.

Guests have also told me that my two units are the best looking in Icon Vallarta, and that photos don’t quite capture their in-person beauty.

Custom furnishings, soothing fabrics and nautical artwork are set against vibrant walls painted ocean blue, sage green, and butter yellow. I lovingly selected every detail, down to the seahorse accents, to create a whimsical, one-of-a-kind space.

You’ll also find top technology like a 40” flatscreen with Apple TV and Netflix. Cozy up for a nighttime movie on the custom-made sofa with chaise lounger, the moon and the lights of Puerto Vallarta glittering on the other side of the wall-to-wall glass in the living area.

Need to work a little while on vacation? Take your laptop to the balcony and tap out some emails in view of the Pacific Ocean. Free WiFi reaches every corner of the condo. I also provide free Vonage phone service, with free long distance calls to the US & Canada. A cell phone is available for local phone calls.

KITCHEN & DINING DETAILS

There’s a beach bar/restaurant on-site at Icon Vallarta, serving up fresh dishes like ceviche and fajitas for light lunches and oceanside snacks.

You can also have a private chef come to your condo and prepare a meal for you.

But, if the idea of whipping up a meal in full view of the stunning Pacific Ocean appeals to you, then this is your ideal kitchen.

Find stainless steel appliances, wood cabinets and a deep farmhouse sink. Also provided are a dishwasher, blender, toaster, coffee maker and a washer & dryer.

We stocked the cabinets with essentials like flatware, pots, pans, baking dishes, glass storage containers, cutting boards, common spices, oils, salt & pepper, and burger-building condiments like ketchup, mustard, and relish.

Present your creation at the adjacent dining table. The table seats six for an unforgettable evening meal in front of an unbound view of the sun sinking into the ocean.

Or, get even closer to the view at the outdoor dining table with seating for four.

BED & BATH DETAILS

This condo features TWO master bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. Both masters have flatscreen TVs, direct access to the balcony space, and jaw-dropping views.

The “Iron Men Deco” master features some unique art poised above a king-sized bed, which is wrapped in butter-soft Jennifer Adams sheets and a downy mattress topper.

The en-suite bath provides shampoo, conditioner and bodywash in the medicine cabinet.

The “Safari” master has a queen-sized bed with the same deluxe sheets, and a pop of unexpected personality.

In the den, find a single “laydown” bed—perfect for an afternoon nap.

About owner/property manager

I first visited Puerto Vallarta in my early 20s and I fell in love instantly…as early 20-somethings tend to do! From that first moment, I started dreaming of owning a place of my own in P.V. someday, and the dream stayed with me.

Fast forward a bit: I met my future husband, brought him to P.V. and he fell in love, too! We married in P.V., and now have our two beloved condos here. Some days we feel as if we’ve woken up in heaven…we’re both so grateful that our mutual dream came true and that we’re able to share a bit of our dream with our guests!

owner/property manager purchased this condo in 2010

Why owner/property manager chose Colonia 5 de Diciembre

The Hotel Zone on the Pacific Coast of Puerto Vallarta offers the best of both worlds. We enjoy the quaint shopping and Old-World feel of the town, with its cobblestone streets, wonderful artist community and diverse dining options ranging from a street-side taco stands to fine French and Mediterranean gourmet cuisine. The vibrant nightlife of Puerto Vallarta boasts several nightclubs and entertaining live shows.

Then, when you want, you can unwind at a quiet spot on the beach—or perched above the beach in one of our condos—with the hush of wind and water in your ears. We love that Puerto Vallarta provides these two amazing experiences!

What makes this condo unique

It's incredibly safe, and the people are very friendly. You will strike up conversations with people on the elevator, the bar, the gym… all of them interesting and with unique stories. Even better, it's a condo that feels like a luxury hotel. Everything you could ever think of or want is here. And our units, specifically, have been designed to be “top of the line” at Icon Vallarta, with innovative décor, artwork and custom furnishings, all situated around stunning views of the coast.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came to PV for my niece's wedding. There were about 20 of us staying in different units at the ICON. Everyone agreed that our unit was the NICEST and the most BEAUTIFULLY decorated! The pictures on line do not do this place justice. We LOVED the Apple TV.



The staff was attentive to all of our needs and very polite. The pool area was never crowded and the beach area had a big selection of activities.

The details are perfect

  • 5 of 5

Everyone's jaw dropped as soon as our elevator opened directly into the suite and we were greeted by our friendly hosts. The view is amazing, the décor is sublime and the space has great lines that let you appreciate your stay from the beginning to when you regretfully have to leave.

It is wonderful to have hosts that really understand that a vacation is an experience. The little details make you feel right at home. Water chilling in the fridge, towels and a beach bag ready for when you want to relax on the beach, comfortable furniture that lets you just relax and enjoy -- these details make this more than a condo, it makes it a secret getaway you savor.

We usually only considered all inclusive hotels for our vacation, but after this trip, that idea is in the past. It is wonderful having a fully equipped kitchen to make a breakfast that you can enjoy with fresh coffee on the deck with the morning sun -- the grocery store is just a block away.

The bedrooms are beautifully decorated and large enough to spread out. The whole condo has that attention to detail in decorating that you want to photograph and remember.

The pool area is full of mostly sunbathers, but no matter how busy, there always seems to be room for more. The beach is one of the longest and best stretches in Puerto Vallarta. Comfortable loungers and service from the beach café right to your chair at the beach or the pool. A spacious, but well appointed gym with personal trainers if you like. Several hot tubs to relax in and enjoy when the sun goes down.

The property is a quick ride from the airport, taxis are always available within a moments notice and it is a cheap ride to anywhere in town, but Soriana, Costco, restaurants and massage are a quick walk away. There is also massage on the beach, just outside the property.

If you are the adventurous type and want to drive in Puerto Vallarta (I am) you will appreciate the underground parking spot so your car isn't a pizza oven when you get in.

It is amazing to reflect on a vacation and know that it was above your expectations. Our stay has changed how we think about travel and we look forward to staying here again soon.

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Beach House was fantastic! The condo was beautiful, the staff were all great, and the location was perfect. Everything you need is very close by. The pool and beach were pristine, and it was relaxing. Great restaurants within a short cab ride. I will definitely be looking to return for another vacation, and I have recommended it to friends and family. If you are considering going, just do it, you will not regret it!

Great time at the Beach House!!

  • 5 of 5

My three children and I take a one week vacation each year. Its our chance to leave everything behind to relax, catch up and have fun. This yearly trip is very important and special to each of us. This year was a great success, our week at the Beach House was incredible!! Its beautifully designed, comfortable in every sense of the word. Its clearly someone's home away from home. The ICON property is also full of design surprises, my kids and I especially enjoyed the four person lounge chair facing the sea down by the pool. We spent many late afternoons there napping and playing cards. We greatly enjoyed our time in Vallarta. Rene was great helping us nail down last minute logistics. Thanks!!

Beach House at Icon

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Beach House at Icon was simply fabulous. We were a family of four with two teenage girls. We stayed one week and were sad to leave. The condo is truly beautiful. The views from both the front and back balcony were mesmerizing. The condo itself is exactly how it is pictured, well appointed, comfortable and spacious. We loved the Icon resort property so much. It is a very safe complex with a very diligent security team; the concierge was also so helpful and welcoming. The pool/beach club staff was superb and the food was delicious. There were plenty of vendors on the beach that we were able to rent us jet skis, take us on banana boat rides and take us parasailing. There is a super market a block away, well stocked with everything you will need. There are some great restaurants in walking distance from Icon that were fantastic. The Asador La Vaca Argentia was our favorite. The servings were generous, great for leftovers! If you take a short cab ride to marina, don’t miss Victor’s for dinner and breakfast. The staff was so friendly and the food was authentic Mexican food. We went to a few higher end, special occasion restaurants, Café des Artistes and Vista Grill, both restaurants won’t disappoint. We had a day trip snorkeling to Boca, a beautiful white sandy beach with crystal blue water, worth the trip. The only small glitch the entire trip was the Wi-Fi was a bit unreliable, but we were told that this is how it is in Mexico. It turned out to be a great excuse to unplug, which we did! We watched an electrical storm over the bay for two hours one night; it was fantastic! Thank you Rene for letting us experience this special place, we will definitely be back!

beach house icon

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed in the Icon before, but the beach house was beautiful. Amazing view, beautifully appointed, convenient to all shopping and an easy cab ride into PV. The pool is by far the highlight of this property, you won't find anything like it elsewhere. Also, the fact that there is a beach bar makes it feel like a hotel but you still have the feeling that you are at home. Great vacation!

THE BEACH HOUSE is exceptional!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely condo in the Icon Vallarta was exceptional in every way! This trip was planned for my husband and I and another couple. We had originally booked another condo in October 2015 for our trip in February 2106. A week and a half before the trip we received an email saying that our booked/confirmed unit was not available. In a panic, I was desperately trying to find an alternative and then saw Rene's condo. Rene threw us a lifeline when she notified us that her Beach House unit was available. Communication was immediate and very professional in every way. She assured me I was in good hands and that we would not be disappointed...we certainly were not! The condo is decorated and cared for with such pride of ownership and concern for her guest's comfort. No want or need goes unanswered. For anything you may need to stock the pantry a grocery store is a short walk away. We had a marvelous time and we were so happy we found this gem in Puerto Vallarta!
