Property has full kitchen with all amenities, lounge and dining area with balcony and sea view, 2 full size bedrooms (main with balcony and sea view), 2 full bathrooms (one is en-suite), entrance hall area, and utility room with washer etc (washer new in 2018). Main entrance is at ground level (There are 2 or 3 steps up to the front door). Dedicated wifi connection. The condo complex has 21 other units, 2 pools (one with ocean view), beautiful gardens and secure entrance with 24 hour security. Car hire is available locally but is not really necessary, cheap taxis abound and the town center and 2 beaches are a short walk away, Manzanillo beach is the closest at approx 7 minutes walk. The principal and Zicatela beaches can also be accessed by a cliff walkway but it has lots of steps & big waves! I have a local agent who lives on site to help out with any issues, and she can arrange collection from the airport if needed.
Please note the condo does not have A/C. None of the units in this property have it but generally there is a nice sea breeze and one can sleep with the balcony doors open. All rooms also have fans. We generally only visit in summer (when it's hottest) and have no problem, but if you are an A/C junkie then this may not be the property for you.
Close by in town is a local market to buy fresh fish, veg, fruit, tortillas, spices and all other known Mexican foodstuffs in addition to handcrafts. For the authentic experience you can also buy fresh fish straight off the boats at the beach, or arrange a trip to catch your own. Puerto is renowned for world class fishing (Dorado, Tuna, Swordfish, Sailfish, etc), along with the world class surfing at Zicatela beach.
For safe swimming there are secluded coves for swimming, snorkeling or just relaxing under a palapa with a drink. At night one can eat out along Zicatela or Rinconada, catch the sunsets there, or have your own private sundowners on the balcony before sleeping to the sound of the sea.
Note that at time of writing (March 2018) there is some construction work ongoing on the next door plot. There may be construction noise for the near future and the construction may partially restrict the view to the east towards Zicatela, but not out to sea, I will be visiting in July 2018 so should have better information then. I believe the photos included here are still representative of the views.
Please also note that the condominium regulations PROHIBIT rentals to families with kids under 14 so you can view that as a bonus or a disadvantage! Great activities for kids over 14 though. Regulations also prohibit rentals to groups of more than 4 persons per unit.
Please note the rates specify a minimum rental of 30 days for the winter period, but it's always worth inquiring if you are interested in a shorter period, especially if the calendar shows a short available slot. Also note that summer rates are always less than winter rates. Please enquire for rates during summer time as they may be less than quoted here.
