About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Amazing getaway destination for ultimate relaxation or maximum activity - you choose. The condo is the very first unit nearest the beach, so the view is incredible. The beach itself is the best in the area where you can literally run or walk for hours in each direction. Since there are many hotels nearby, you can take advantage of the many activities available for rental such as jet skiing, sailing, horseback riding, parasailing, and much more; yet, the pool area and the immediate beach area in front of Acqua is quiet and relaxing.

Renovated in 2016 - wasn't needed but just wanted to change to white color cabinets and upgrade the kitchen.

Daily routine when my family goes to Aria: light breakfast at home made in our own kitchen, followed by a long run on the beach, then a refreshing swim in the pool, a bit of relaxation and a light lunch before heading to Sayulita for an afternoon of surfing. Dinner is usually out in the town from the endless list of restaurants to choose from, both nearby in Nuevo Vallarta or 25 minutes away in Puerto Vallarta. You can rent a car, take a cab, or the boat taxi from the Marina to Puerto Vallarta.

About Faramarz Mahdavi

I live in San Jose, CA, and my son attends the University of Washington in Seattle. We've always loved Puerto Vallarta and visited a few times a year for many years. My son lived in PV for a year when he was 10 and attended 5th grade at The American School.

Faramarz Mahdavi purchased this condo in 2007

Why Faramarz Mahdavi chose Flamingos

We love activities, which is why we decided to buy a condo in Nuevo Vallarta. There is absolutely no better beach around than the one right in front of Aria.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy staying at our property because it provides the best of all worlds. The complex itself is beautiful and serene; yet, endless activities are available just minutes away. There is also an amazing store called Mega nearby to buy everything you might possibly need to prepare food at the condo, as well as the Marina where you can find Starbucks, an Internet Cafe, and much more. If you stay at our place, you will find yourself spending a lot of your time on the balcony enjoying the amazing view.

Right on the Pacific!

Stayed for month of January. Was beautiful weather-hot and not one day of rain all that time. Condo is very comfortable for 2 people. The upper floor master bedroom is very nice- king bed , comfortable and view is amazing.

There's a small room behind the master bedroom with a fold down futon suitable for maybe kids- open and no closet and not private a all.

The huge couch in living room is very comfortable and makes into a nice queen size bed for overnight guests.

Great sundeck with nice Weber BBQ and big umbrella.

Location is pretty remote and almost need a car- although driving is a little crazy there. Big Mega store for food etc is a 15-20 minute walk and taxi back one way is 60pesos. You have to go into Bucerias or Puerto Vallarta for restaurants. We had a car booked for the whole month, only to find out that the price became prohibitive with the mandatory Mexican liability insurance- even though the car rental sites say the $750,000 liability insurance is included- when you get there they tell you it needs to be $2 million insurance and that costs $18US per day extra. Our car rental would have been almost $1000 US for the month!!!!!! Didn't rent.

Real big tv downstairs with streaming only- gets Netflix and YouTube but no regular tv stations.

The owner was prompt at refunding security deposit.

Beach and pool area have wonderful casitas but you have to get there early to reserve one.

Amazing beach walking!

Ricardo- our Mexican caretaker is fabulous. He's so prompt to take care of anything you need and the check in and checkout were made super easy with Ricardo. Mucho gracias Ricardo.

Location was perfect!!

The condo is clean and right on the beach. A short distance to Bucerias and Sayulita. On a quiet stretch of the beach. The pool is great and refreshing. Rafael, the condo manager went above and beyond to help us. We loved it and recommend it

Excellent condo with great beach view to Nuevo Vallarta bay. We have had very nice times and enjoyed every day sunset during our stays. We just repeat four times this excellent accommodation.

This condo is a small one, but very practical, it has kitchen with all the facilities to cook, half bathroom, living room and dining table, A/C unit at the lower level; in the upper level it has one bedroom with a complete bathroom, closet and wash/dry center, Tv and A/C unit it also has another small bedroom with a comfortable futon.

The common area at the complex is amazing, the swimming pool is great surrounded by very good canopies for the sun and always was clean and ready to enjoy. For those who like the sea, the front beach is an excellent opportunity to swim also you might see some wind surfers at the ocean in a windy days.

In summary this is an excellent option to stay and enjoy Nuevo Vallarta.
