Comments from our guests:

'Your condo was spotless and tastefully furnished with many little extras- we think we're in a position to judge as we have 7 holiday homes....'

'We found the location very convenient. We spent all day on the beach and were very happy to retire to the peace and quiet at Copa De Oro for the eves.'

'We had an excellent stay. Your unit is top drawer- very nicely equipped and the location suited us very well. We like downtown PV and that is why we chose your condo.'

'All the appliances and furnishings were high quality. The housekeeping and unit condition was first class. Being located in the center of old town was what we enjoyed the most. The location made it a much richer experience than our previous one in the hotel zone. The Malecon and beaches were a short walk away so we did not give up anything with this unit.'

'The location is perfect- central and yet quiet.'

“The condo is spacious and comfortable. We felt safe and well cared for as well as being close to the bars and the beach. Great that there is a safe parking spot included for a vehicle. We relaxed and enjoyed a beautiful trip in a great city!”

BUILDING AMENITIES: Filtered water throughout the building | Elevator | Gated community with 24 hour security | Beautifully maintained HEATED Saltwater POOL AND SPA in a garden setting plus sun deck and lounge chairs | SECURE PARKING garage with 1 assigned stall for our guests | Next door is a day spa and gym


This condo is located in the historic Zona Romantica about 4 blocks east of the beach and just south of Basillo Badillo. There are no steep hills to climb, it's an easy walk to everything!

Absolutely everything is located within an easy walk.

About The Owner

Paul & Katy Malm- we are married with 3 adult children and are now grandparents. We are long-time business owners, enjoy music, sunshine, and gathering with friends.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007

Why The Owner chose Emiliano Zapata

We have been enjoying visits to Puerto Vallarta for 30 years! What a great town, lovely people, beautiful vistas and perfect weather. Being based in Seattle, we so appreciate the dependable blue sky days of the dry high season in PV! We are delighted to own this gem of a condo combining quiet comfort- but in the heart of all the fun. Not an easy combination to find. We enjoy this condo on breaks throughout the year, so it is well-stocked and ready for use. We hope to host you soon for your own special sunbreak!

What makes this condo unique

These condos are so comfortable! We have all the amenities of home in a warm, beautiful setting. Katy's favorite pastime is making good use of the wonderful pool. Kept at a constant 82-84 degrees and using the new saltwater technology which avoids the harsh chlorine chemicals, this pool is thoroughly enjoyed by the residents. For those who enjoy cooking, this kitchen has topnotch appliances and plenty of space to work. Washer, dryer, dishwasher- life is easy here! The kind of amenities you don't usually see so close to the old-town charm of the Playa Los Muertos area.

Copa De Oro in El Centro, Puerto Vallarta

  • 5 of 5

Mr. and Mrs. Malm,

I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for the wonderful stay in Puerto Vallarta. My husband and I spent Sept 6th thru the 13th at your Copa De Oro condo. We were very pleased with the location and the security we experienced. Your property manager was delightful to work with and the detailed instructions were a huge help.

This condo had everything we needed (except I forgot my hairdryer) for a very comfortable stay. We would recommend your condo to our friends and have logged your information for a future stay for us. Thank you again for the hospitality.

Copa de Oro

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful condo for 28 days and felt like it was home.The pool area and surounding gardens were just awsome.The unit was just a few blocks from the Ocean and a Farmers Market Sat mornings that offered all kinds of homemade foods and other items needed when on vacation.We loved the city and also the locals as they were very friendly and most helpful when we needed infomation about buses and taxies. Our vacation was so great that we will return next year for a longer period than this past year.

A Hidden Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Having been to PV many times I understand that finding comfortable, affordable, nicely furnished and well located housing on the internet can be challenging. I was well rewarded for my search. This one bedroom condo is a jewel. It was in the heart of the area I love, the old town Romantic Zone and the furnishings were lovely. It is not spartain in the least with a full kitchen generous floor space and lovely veranda. The entire property is lovely. I highly recommend.
