About Kim Johnson

Hello! We are from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. We purchased our studio condo at Playa Royale, Nuevo Vallarta 10 years ago. We then purchased a 2 bedroom unit in building 4 so we can accommodate our entire family during the holidays. We love Playa Royale. The staff is like family to us and we appreciate the care and attention they give to our guests. We hope you enjoy Playa Royale as much as we do!!

Kim Johnson purchased this condo in 2006

Why Kim Johnson chose Nuevo Vallarta

We love the quiet, relaxation of Playa Royale. The beaches are beautiful and you can walk for miles along the Bandaras Bay. The proximity to fantastic restaurants, golfing, tennis and shopping is ideal. You will feel at home.

What makes this condo unique

If safety and quiet relaxation are important factors in your holiday decision, you will love Playa Royale and Nuevo Vallarta. We love strolling the streets at night after a lovely meal and feeling the extra security of a gated community.

Very clean and beautifully laid out right on the beach of Banderas Bay.

  • 5 of 5

Feels more like home than a resort. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We entertained a couple of times in one of 3 large palapas, free of charge, complete with full kitchen and restroom facilities. The room we stayed in was clean with everything we needed for a hassle free stay. Can't say enough about how wonderful and friendly the staff was to us. There was an outdoor restaurant right next to us and a shopping mall just a short walk away. Even the other guests were very friendly and easily approachable if you cared to share a conversation. Guess that's what happens when everyone is happy. Enjoyed the pools and beach everyday. Highly recommend booking with Kim. She genuinely cares that your stay is perfect and is easily available to help with any questions or concerns.

Will definitely book with Kim on our next trip to PV.

Another wonderful vacation in Nuevo Vallarta

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much Kim! The studio unit was perfect for us, clean, comfortable and stocked with all the essentials. The view from the balcony is spectacular, we enjoyed it every evening. This area is easy to navigate and the staff at Playa Royale are so helpful. We came here at peak season and it didn't feel crowded or noisy. Many thanks for answering our questions so quickly, it was lovely to work with you!

Fabulous, quiet holiday at Playa Royale.

  • 5 of 5

Playa Royale is a very nice and meticulously maintained condo development. Kim's unit was absolutely perfect for us. It was spotlessly clean and stocked with everything we could possibly need including toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, laundry soap and the best thing--it had a washer and dryer. It was very quiet day and night and there was a grocery store very close. We also found some very good restaurants located within a short walk. Walking on the beach ever morning was just great. All in all a wonderful holiday.

Shhhhhh ... my little secret!!!

  • 5 of 5

I hesitate to write such a rave review on this property, because I don't want to give away my new secret paradise. I've stayed at Playa Royale on numerous occassions, and have talked to lots of other people who stay here. By far, this studio unit (and it's owner) is the BEST over other units!!!

The unit is super clean and comfy, and is in close proximity to everything on the property and the beach. It has all the amenities you would want (see listing), but also has the most comfortable beds! (Which if you've stayed in some units in NV, you know what I'm talking about.) The beds in this unit were like sleeping on a cloud.

There's also an awesome Bose sounddock for your iPod, which if you know Bose products, you know how amazing they are. There's just something extra nice about listening to your own music when you're at your home-away-from-home. There are other little extras, but you'll have to discover them yourself. ;)

I can't say enough how amazing this rental is and the owner is just the nicest! If you decide to rent, please just don't rent when I want to come back, because I'm going to continue to book this unit OVER and OVER and OVER!!!

Muchas gracias!!!

One Happy RELAXED California Renter
