Beautiful, Modern Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Amapas 353 late January 2018. We were very impressed with everything about the unit ... nice furnishings, new appliances (with filtered water and ice) , beautiful bathrooms, good closet space, and it was immaculate! But most of all, we loved the view, from both the balcony and the rooftop pool area.

Andreas and Javier were wonderful with their communication and were quick to reply to any questions I had while booking and throughout our stay.

Very relaxing place. We highly recommend Amapas 353!

Amazing Condo in the Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! The condo is beautiful and have wonderful views of the ocean! You can even hear the waves crashing on the beach. Some nights my partner and I would fall asleep in the living room listing to the waves. It was very relaxing. The beach was just a few steps away down the stairs. The location of the condo was perfect for us. We would definitely stay here again. Andrea and Javier were wonderful hosts! Thank you for such a nice vacation. All the best - Michael

Excellent in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th year in a row staying at 353 Amapas in one of Andreas' and Javier's units.

You won't find nicer people to rent from and Lucia will be by twice a week to change linens/towels and clean the unit.

There is construction noise from other buildings most days but that's typical everywhere in old PV due to the all the construction/upgrades currently taking place.

The location is great if you like walking around as you have easy access to markets, attractions, the beach and countless restaurants.

The building has good WiFi and we've always felt safe.

Book with confidence as you will not be disappointed......just don't book the first 2 weeks of Dec as that's ours :)

Owner's Response: Dear Greg and Heather, Thank you so much staying with us for so many years and your nice review, but compre to the downtown/Romantic Zone, where they are building like crazy Highrisers with new view and day and night noise from traffic, restaurants and the laud music till 6 am in the morning from the night clubs, our units are very quiet. Non of the owners of the new condos in the downtown telling their guests in their description what noise the poor people have to expect. We never had so many last minute requests from guests were staying already in one of the new condos and couldn’t take the noise anymore, but like we were and still are very booked, we was not able to confirm to all this guests, but some, like you reserved already for their next stay. Yes there are sometimes a bit noice if some of the old hotels doing remodelings, but new constructions are not going on, like the years before. Now the Mantamar hotel is finishing the remodeling of their roof top and we all hope that it is. We wish you both a Very Happy New Year and we can’t wait to welcome you again. Andreas & Javier and a big Huge from our sweetheart cleaning lady Lucia

About Andreas

We are both in our 50ties. Javier is Mexican and is architect. I’m (Andreas) born in Germany living 20 years in Mexico. I studied business law and journalism. So I open my own press and promotion agency on the side. I had my own columns in different newspapers and magazines. The promotion for hotel chains broth me also to Mexico. Playa Del Carmen was at that time a little fishermen’s village and here I dripped in to Javier. So we build our first hotel in Playa del Carmen (Hotel Aventura Mexicana) and opened 3 restaurants. We were missing the scene. So when we came to Puerto Vallarta, we said: Yes welcome to the culture and very friendly, open minded locals and a great gay scene. So we moved with our 2 dogs to Puerto Vallarta. We love it here and made in a short time a lot of friends.

Andreas purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Andreas chose Amapas

Gay bars and clubs are close by and also the condo is located at the famous beach 'Playa Del Los Muertos a meeting point for people all over the world. Nobody has to be in a closet, in Puerto Vallarta you are free to enjoy yourself and make new friends. Puerto Vallarta seems to become more popular as a vacation spot. With a beautiful ocean bay, beaches, mountains and lush tropical jungle as the setting. Puerto Vallarta has a charming small-town feel, cosmopolitan lifestyle, privileged climate. While retaining much of its old style Mexican charm, a colorful blend of the old and the new, Puerto Vallarta offers an unrivaled combination of simple pleasures and sophisticated charms. Fine dining restaurants, art galleries, upscale shopping centers, internet cafes and nightclubs peacefully coexist alongside taco stands, street-side vendors selling Mexican handcrafts, traditional open air markets and strolling mariachi bands. Vallarta has over the years built up the infrastructure of a modern resort community, ATM machines, excellent airport, modern medical services, drinkable water supply, and a safe, tolerant environment are now all part of the Vallarta scene. The people are very friendly and open minded and here are a lot of opportunities for people with a different (also for gays) lifestyle. So visiting a tropical paradise doesn't have to be a choice between a modern but sterile place or the alternative of a quaint but primitive existence. Puerto Vallarta has all the quaintness, without compromising on any of the modern conveniences. We're located on one of the largest, deepest, and most stunning natural bays in the world, Bahia de Banderas, which supports almost any form of water recreation imaginable. This bay is where the humpback whales come every winter, where dolphins nest year round. In Puerto Vallarta the air is clean, the sun shines without rain almost all winter long, and the sunsets - well, they're as spectacular as you could possibly ask for.

What makes this apartment unique

The condo is located behind the famous beach Playa Del Los Muertos a meeting point for people all over the world. The apartment is brand new finished in December 2012, all furniture are new, it has granite counters in the kitchen and in the bath rooms. Glass doors in the shower and marble walls. All bed rooms have A/C's (Central AC). We offer WI-FI, stereo, DVD, TV, washer, dryer, dish washer and a full equipped kitchen. Easy access to the condo and roof top terrace, because the building has an elevator. Great for people in their age. It great location, just behind the Blue Chair Hotel and beach and right in front of the gay beaches and bars and restaurants close by. Cleaning is incl. in the rate 2 times a week. The balcony with ocean view gives you the option to rest and if you like to smoke. You stay in the middle of all what the romantic zone offers, but the apartment is very quiet. There are a lot of vacation rentals nearby. Yes some of them are less expensive, but... look at pictures and ask when they were last time remodeled. Amapas 353 is not like in the other “new building like V399” where the bed room or kitchen windows going to the inside and everybody can see in your condo who pass by and you have the noise from A/C generators. So you can never open the windows or curtains, because by the condominium rules you have to be dressed. So where is the privacy? Also just some of the condos have a view to the town and ocean. That’s why we bought our condos in Amapas 353. If you look to the finishing’s and details, you will se a big difference. If you look for a clean Condo on the ocean with comfort, style and art and a good service, our condo is the right place to enjoy your vacation. If you have any question please contact us for more info's.

We are looking forward to welcome you
