With breathtaking views over the blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, Condominium La Jolla de Mismaloya is located just 15 minutes south of downtown Puerto Vallarta on Mexico's Pacific coast. A short bus or taxi ride, brings you to this serene area. Breathe in the moist jungle breezes and the refreshing salt air, while taking in the phenomenal sunsets.

The Penthouse interior open floor plan flows out onto the terrace which is accentuated by the thrilling and dramatic views of coastline, ocean and Banderas Bay. A heated private pool is situated on the terrace. Over the last year, several of the visitors spotted whales and dolphins surfacing and playing in Banderas Bay.

High-end decorative touches can be found throughout the penthouse. There is a private telephone for local calls and wireless internet - WiFi - throughout the condo.(Included in rental). English language satellite TV, 42' Panasonic HD flat screen TV, Blue-ray DVD Player, VCR, stereo, and CD player in the condo.

Two different dive sites are located just a few minutes off the beach. One is El Canon ( The Canyon) and La Quijada del Diablo ( The Devil's Jaw ) drop off which starts at a 800 foot vertical wall off the west side of the rock arches.

You can encounter an abundance of tropical sea life, including parrot fish, yellow tail snappers, sea horses, zebra moray eels, and green turtles. There are many forms of coral as well on an awe inspiring swim through canyon.

If you are a fan of cinema, you may be intrigued by the fact that the penthouse view takes in a famous movie site. John Huston first encountered Mismaloya while filming “The Night of the Iguana” with Sir Richard Burton and Ava Gardner in 1965. He remained enchanted with the area and made it his permanent home, a few minutes away from Mismaloya, naming it “Las Caletas." The home is now available to tour and is a short distance by boat from Mismaloya.

Magical stay in penthouse

  • 5 of 5

The penthouse was perfect for two couples, very spacious and well stocked. The view is unbeatable and the pool was kept crystal clear. Response from the booking agent on any issues was immediate. The 20 minute bus ride north to PV or 10 minutes south to Boca began right across the street. We are already making plans for next year.

Lovely place with a lovely view!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is spacious and well appointed. Comfy beds, high end appliances. Nancy was an excellent host in setting up the rental. Very good communication and was nice to be able to pay with PayPal. We were there a week and we enjoyed spending time in the pool on the deck or sitting around the outside table. It's not deep but it's heated and the view from the pool is divine. Didn't use the larger condo pool, but there were plenty of people sitting around it reading and relaxing. We ate at the palapa restaurants at the beach, which were good. The waves were coming right up to the tables so water was a bit rough for swimming, although the husband didn't let that stop him most days (a boat flipped over in the surf one day so that was it for me). The last massage place on the beach was terrific. All of them charge about $20 USD/hour, but the people at this one seemed most professiona. Nice facial for $20 too. I wouldn't recommend the restaurant at the condo facility. Not great food and not great service. We walked down the road to the little town of Mismaloya, where there are a couple of nice little shops for groceries and beer. Take the bus to downtown PV for 40 cents right across from condo or spend $10 USD on a cab. We'd highly recommend taking the bus to Boca de Tomatlan and then a short boat ride to Las Animas beach (costs $7-$8 USD each). It's much less crowded than Mismaloya, and there are no big buildings or hotels, just restaurants and a beautiful beach. No roads into the town so everything is boated in. Really enjoyed the restaurant El Fundador. Great food, owner who used to live in Arizona was a great guy, and the place had the cleanest beach bathroom around. We'd also recommend taking a cab to the botanical gardens south of Mismaloya. Stunningly beautiful with a great restaurant and shop.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of the Penthouse condo! We are glad you enjoyed your stay. You have provided good information for future guests. I'm sad to hear that our Mismaloya Grill restaurant did not meet your expectations. I will be passing along the comment to the owners (no names mentioned of course!). I'm not sure who Nancy is, as there is no person by that name associated with the property. Perhaps just a slip! Sincerely, Margaret and Terry

Relaxation and luxury...the best!

  • 5 of 5

Every positive point made in all previous reviews are true. This is a spectacular condo. Comfortable, spacious and well equipped. Not enough can be said about the private pool, wrap around balcony hanging over the water and the expansive views!!! The ONLY discomfort we had was low water pressure in the master shower and kitchen sink. However, still hard to complain and we will definitely be coming back. Stop at grocery on your way out of PV town. Cooking in the well stocked kitchen or with the gas grill on the deck is as enjoyable as eating out! Excellent meals at Tony's and El Jacalito; both walking distance from the condo.

As Good as it Gets

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was absolutely beautiful! The wrap-around terrace is amazing with views of Mismaloya and beyond. Although we didn't cook, this kitchen had everything necessary to make full meals. And although most reviews never mention the shower, I must say that both showers in this apartment had plenty of hot water and pressure. Margaret gave wonderful suggestions on shopping and dining and our only regret was not staying longer!

Perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth visit to Mismaloya because it is our favorite spot. It was our first stay at Margaret's penthouse and we would highly recommend it for couples/families. It is big enough that no one feels crowded. The wrap around deck gives a wide perspective and the private pool is perfect for cooling off without having to pack down to the main pool. We cooked several times in the large kitchen which was just like home. Margaret was responsive to our questions and inquiries which is a good indicator of how good the rental will be. Hopping on the bus just in front of the condo to either go to PV or Boca to catch the boat to Yelapa was most convenient. The condo is spacious, comfortable, well-furnished, and above all, clean. I would highly recommend it.
