About the Property

2 bedroom 2 bath/ sleeps 5

This 1800 sq ft, first floor condo is part of an intimate eight unit architectural gem built above the water's edge. The building, swimming pool, lush gardens and adjacent common areas are classic 'Villa' style maintained each day by a professional staff.

Inside this 1st floor unit you will be greeted with panoramic views of the shimmering water, Los Arcos and the coast of Banderas Bay. The solid wood french doors fold away to bring the outdoors in. From the balcony you will feel like you have landed in paradise, in your own private villa, and all you can hear is the surf below.

The well appointed and comfortable living room has a sofa sleeper, occasional chairs, custom furnishings, antiques and original art collected while traveling in Mexico by the owner/interior designer.

Guests will find a well equipped, modern kitchen with all the amenities to create gourmet or casual meals or have a personal chef prepare that special dinner. There are two eating areas - an eating bar off the kitchen and a marble topped table on the living room balcony - both of which will seat six comfortably - plus a small belly bar on the balcony.

Both bedrooms have king size beds and the Master has both a sitting and office area. All rooms have french doors opening onto their own balcony with unobstructed views of the bay and Los Arcos. Off the master bedroom there is a large trellis covered patio with hammocks and lounge chairs - perfect for that afternoon siesta or reading a book selected from the library shelves.

One of the magical things about this location is the feeling that you could be on the coast anywhere in the world. The beach in just to the north - and during the summer months full of sand. In the peak season, it requires a lot of rock hopping to access, but well worth the effort.

LOCATION-LOCATION-LOCATION - This unique property is 15 mins from downtown Puerta Vallarta - making all of the wonderful shops and fabulous restaurants easily accessible - even by a bus that stops regularly infront of the condo. Information and recommendations will await you upon arrival (or can be sent ahead of time). There truly is no end to the fun experiences you can have in the various historic areas of PV -- the Romantic Zone - Old Town - the Malecon - all with amazing restaurants and night time entertainment. Art and jewlery Galleries and local artisan are always having special showings or festivals. That is one of the reasons it is so nice to leave that energitic vibe and come home to the peace a quiet of Mismalya - and Playa los Arcos.

Sight seeing, boat trips, jet skis, ziplines, whale watching, snorkeling and scuba diving and horse back riding can all be done or arranged with a short walk or bus ride to Mismaloya Beach.

For guests with a larger budget, Vallarta Adventures has an extensive list of adventures such as swimming with the dolphins or rock climbing and ziplining under a water fall and these arrangements can even be made ahead of time on line.

A beautiful drive south to the Botanical Gardens for lunch will astound you. And for some local color, a trip up to El Eden to swim in the river or an afternoon sitting on the beach in Mismaloya is a must,

We sometimes go north of town to the Marina - about a 30 min drive - and walk amoung the beautiful boats and lunch at Porta Bello. Fishing trips can be arranged there as well as a day of golf. Continuing North, there are several quaint and interesting towns to visit.

In the end, most of our friends and family say that their favorite thing to do is read by the pool (with the sound of the waves crashing beneath you) or in the hammock on the patio with views of Los Arcos one way and the jungle the other.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: My husband and I lived, worked and retired in San Diego County. We loved to travel and especially in Mexico. As an interior designer, I have been drawn to the wonderful colors and creative designs in the furniture and antiques of the Mexican Furniture and have included many in the warm and inviting home.

Why the Owner Chose Mismaloya, Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico:
On a trip to Puerto Vallarta in 1990, we discovered this building being constructed along the highway and fell in love with the location. We were the second owner to purchase and selected the prime 1st floor unit. A photo album at the condo chronicles the adventure this became. They were drawn to the absolutely spectacular view, peaceful setting, powerful surf and magnificent sunsets.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This unique condo was constructed entirely by hand by local craftsman and built well before the building boom in Vallarta. The windows, doors, and railings are all hardwood, the floors are clay tile or marble. With a designer's eye, Donna has furnished the condo with custom furniture from Guadalajara, original art and accessories from Puerta Vallarta and antiques from travels throughout Mexico. The condo has a warm and inviting feel - a reflection of the casual elegance and comfort that is Mexico - but with updated amenities in the bathrooms and kitchen. The views south will remind you of the coast of Carmel, the views of Los Arcos (the aquatic preserve) will give you whale and dolphin sightings in the winter, the beach to the north will offer amazing snorkeling.
