About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Penthouse - 12' ceilings - spectacular view - quiet too

TREAT YOURSELF TO A FABULOUS STAY IN PUERTO VALLARTA! A 5+ star accommodation........from as little as $175/night, depending on the season.

'Vallarta Vida', is "Zona Romantica's" newest loft style 1700 sq. ft. 2 bedroom Penthouse condo in the heart of Old Town Vallarta. Located on a quiet street just a leisurely stroll away from the very best restaurants, bars, boutiques & other shopping to suit every taste, palette and budget, 'Vallarta Vida' is located in the Old Vallarta you hear about with its cobbled streets and red brick rooftops covered with bouganvillia of every variety. Being just 3 short blocks to the ocean and the 'Malecon' (PV's famous ocean side esplanade), you will enjoy an easy walk to everything that Vallarta has to offer with no hills to climb and absolutely no need to drive or taxi. Due to the accessibility, our home is considered to be a very senior friendly location.

'Vallarta Vida's' interior space and furnishings were professionally designed by Paul K Stewart of Projekt Home www.projekthome.ca, Toronto, Canada, and handcrafted by local Mexican Artisans.

The fully equipped cook's kitchen includes a centre island gathering spot with 5 stools, granite countertops, stainless steel cook top, oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, wine frig & micro-wave oven.

Adjoining the kitchen is the tastefully and comfortably furnished family room, a perfect reading/quiet area or gathering spot for guests while you test your culinary skills in the kitchen. A walk-out to a comfortably furnished patio provides inviting moments of quiet escape as you enjoy the mountainous vistas.

The 12' ceilings adds to the spaciousness of the combined living/dining room providing the appropriate setting for a magnificent dining table with comfortable seating for 10-12. It is the perfect setting for those quieter more intimate evenings for you and yours or for those larger dinner parties with family and friends.

After dinner, continue your evening by retreating to the adjoining custom designed and comfortably appointed living space, the perfect gathering spot. An entertainment system with a 52' TV (Shaw Cable & a blue ray player included) will provide you with background music to enhance the atmosphere or high definition television viewing. A surround sound bar is also available allowing you to plug in your smart phones to access your personal music. A few steps onto the balcony exposes you to the lights and the near & distant sounds of residential Old Vallarta.

Both bedrooms are furnished with locally crafted headboards & bedside tables highlighted by artistic hand blown glass lamps, clock radios with IPod docking stations & 42' TV's. Plenty of closet space and ensuite baths featuring marble floors, showers & countertops will add to the enjoyment of your vacation.

The Master bedroom has the advantage of a walkout to a large balcony shared with the living room.

A 2 piece guest bath adjoins the living areas for the convenience of your guests. Both sofas provide additional sleeping accommodation.

The lighting features throughout have been designed to enhance your desired atmosphere, with most lights on dimmers. Each room has ceiling fans and air conditioning units for your comfort.

A stacked front loading washer/dryer are included and there is an underground parking spot that can accommodate 2 cars parked in tandem.

The controlled access security includes entry intercom, security service and cameras. A water purification system means no bottles of water required, drink right from the tap. Free local, Canada & US telephone service as well as high speed wifi is also provided.

The breath taking 360 degree view from the rooftop terrace, which is just 1 level away, encompasses the ocean, downtown Vallarta, the magnificent mountains and lush jungle. The infinity pool, 2 hot tubs, fire pit and 3 separate living areas are there for your vacation enjoyment.

Come experience Old Town Vallarta with 'Vallarta Vida' as you home!

Absolutely beautiful!!

We loved this condo. It was everything they said it was. It is walking distant to nearly everything you'd want to do in PV. We highly recommend!

Owner's Response: We are so please that you and your family enjoyed your time with us over the Xmas and New Year period. Seeing your kids, wife and mother's smiles while on the roof top and around the condo was worth a thousand words. Your mom said she would like to be back next year again.

Beautiful place and wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful condo in a great location near everything. The people we met in the building were all so nice. The condo is lavish in terms of furniture and the contact on location was very helpful. The rooftop pool is a big added plus. We definitely want to stay here again.

A Great Time in PV !

  • 5 of 5

The penthouse was wonderful. We had a couple of small issues and Harvey got them handled very quickly. The location is in the middle of Old Town PV and a couple of blocks to the beach. Pretty close to being perfect all the way around.

About Harvey Malinsky

We are both professionals, born and raised in Toronto, and enjoying life as it should be enjoyed with children, grandchildren, extended family and friends. We own and love our warm comfortable home in the heart of the city and truly enjoy all of the amenities that are so easily accessible to us.

Our home in Puerto Vallarta is a reflection of our Toronto life style and enjoyment which we would like to share with others. If you are looking for a very special home for your escape, either alone or with family and/or friends, you do not need to look further. You have found it with us.

Harvey Malinsky purchased this condo in 2012

Why Harvey Malinsky chose Emiliano Zapata

If there's one street in Zona Romantica that's made for shoppers, it's Basilio Badillo found between Pino Suárez and Insurgentes.

Discover this local secret where you can find the very best in art, the most captivating jewelry (Cielito Lindo and A Touch of Gold), great clothes, scarves and handbags (Que Mona), lovely manta and colorful talavera and so much more.

This street has always had the moniker “Restaurant Row” since, even to this day, you won’t go hungry on Basilio Badillo. Popular places, ethnic eateries, local comidas corridas (with a daily menu at a low price), bakeries, seafood and meat, it’s all there.

Take your time to explore this trendy neighborhood. You may find yourself coming here time and again. No taxis needed unless you are venturing off for a major excursion.

From Vallarta 399, you are 3 blocks to Los Muertos Beach and the Malecon, where you can enjoy a leisurely stroll along the ocean to the newer part of PV.

Here are a few quotes from travel sites that reflect our sentiments about Zona Romantica.

...“There is a special spirit in the air, which will add something special into your heart. Well .. everywhere :-)” ...

“I love this area of Puerto Vallarta. It is the funky & eclectic area that many visitors miss. It is a MUST SEE area of town, Easily walk-able, safe and full of great restaurants, bars, cafes, shopping, galleries, beach bars, you name it.... it is all here. Great hotels and vacation rentals... so you will not even have to take a taxi to get to cool places. Come and explore the coolest area of Puerto Vallarta.”...

“This place is like New Orleans French Quarter. During the day it's bustling with workers and the business of the city. At night, the lights give it an atmosphere that lends to romantic walks and visits to restaurants and bars you may have missed during the day.”

What makes this condo unique

The roof top terrace and with its amazing amenities and mesmerizing views feels like an extension of our home being accessible within less than 1 minute by way of 1 flight of stairs or an elevator ride. Our WIFI is often available on the rooftop.

Walk out the door and you are on a street with no inclines.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Absolutely everything about this accommodation was 5 star. Starting with the concierge from Palmera Vacations who greeted us with a smile and was helpful throughout our stay. The condo itself is beautiful, clean, welcoming, comfortable and has everything you need to enjoy a stress free vacation. The location put simply couldn't be better. It's close to everything, shops, restaurants, the beach, markets with no hills to climb to reach any of these places. The rooftop and pool are also breathtaking. A must is being up there at sunset. It's simply beautiful. I loved this place and can't wait to go back again.

Map

Car: not necessary

From the front door of Vallarta 399, there are no hills to climb and no need for taxis. You are in the very heart of Old Vallarta, just steps away from the very best restaurants, bars, boutiques & other shopping to suit every taste, palette and budget. This is the Old Vallarta you hear about with cobbled streets and red brick rooftops covered with bouganvillia of every variety and only 3 short blocks to the ocean.
