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, but 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 condo in 2013

Why Andreas chose Romantic Zone

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 condo 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

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay. It was clean, well kept, and as advertised. The well-furnished condo did not lack anything we needed.

The rooftop pool was great!

Andreas and Javier were friendly and very helpful. Javier met us upon arrival and gave us a tour of the building. When we were ready to leave he arranged for a taxi.

The combination of a nice place to stay and nice hosts made this one of the best vacations we've had. We can highly recommend. These guys know what they're doing. Thank you!

Having been to P.V. a dozen times, we can say that this was our best experience yet. From the time of making our reservation, Andreas handled us with care, professionalism, and courtesy. Javier was waiting for us at the property when we arrived. He showed us around our condo, took us for a building tour, and told us we could call upon him whenever needed. The condo is perfect..... everything looked brand new, the space was great, wonderful cross breezes, fantastic view, and fully equipped and modern. The roof top pool is fantastic, with great views, comfortable seating, music, and everyone we met up there were super nice eclectic and interesting group. One day the power on the block went out, and when it came back on, our condo was still without electricity. I called Javier who arrived in about 4 minutes, flipped a switch, as all was well again. Great service to say the least. We always stay in that area, and this was the nicest place yet....we hated to leave it. I think we were home less than 24 hours when I got an email that our security deposit had been fully refunded. I'm hesitant to rave, because I want Andreas and Javier to have availability next time we go to PV, but they deserve the praise.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in early March.

The whole rental procedure was really a breeze.

Javier was always prompt returning e-mails, met us as promised when we arrived and even saw us off, making sure we had a taxi. We never had any problems wtih the condo but I'm sure if we had they would have been dealt with promptly.

The condo itself is great, very clean, well decorated and furnished and supplied with everything you could really need. The rooftop pool area is as advertised and the location is great for both the beach and for heading into town.

Exceptional property for gay couples in PVR

  • 5 of 5

I signed up into VRBO just so I could give Javier and Andreas' condo the stellar review it deserves. Our first time in PV, this condo put us close to EVERYTHING. You've all seen the pictures, it's just as described.

We stayed for ten days, and it was the best vacation we have ever had.

On our next visit, I think we will go for the unit on the 6th floor - it has a full sized sofa so it makes it easy to lie in the beautiful living room watching TV and staring at the bay.

We never met Andreas, but Javier was lovely.

I am dreaming of going back, every day.

Wonderful relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful relaxing warm weather break from the frozen tundra of Minnesota! From the inquiry to the checkout, Andreas and Javiar were fantastic. Andreas was prompt in responding to my inquiry and we subsequently reserved the condo. We took a taxi to the condo and Javiar met us there, checked us in, showing us everything we would need to know. This condo was beautifully decorated and clean with a modern kitchen with granite counter top and stainless steel appliances and all the accessories that we would need. Washer and dryer were nice to be able to wash clothes. The pool on the rooftop was refreshing with a wonderful view of the ocean down below. Wifi connection was perfect. The gym has 2 treadmills, elliptical machine and weights. Within walking distance to the beach and all the restaurants along the Malecon. Close to the Saturday Farmers's market. Wonderful convenience store down the street that had homemade salsa and guacamole (yum!) and plentiful ripe papaya. The only downside was that a new beach club between the condo and the beach had opened up and played loud club music from noon until late at night---could not be heard on the rooftop though, seems like the alley funneled the sounds straight to our condo. It was not bothersome enough to ruin the vacation, just a bit annoying and if I were to stay here again, would try to get a condo higher up (there were I believe 4 higher floors) to try to avoid the music.

Javiar met us for checkout and called a taxi for us- a wonderful personal touch.

Thank you Andreas and Javiar for a wonderful relaxing vacation!

Owner's Response: Dea Geta, Thanks for your kind review. We were not sleeping, all hotels and condo buildings around put a written complain to municipal against the laud music coming from that beach club. 2 days ago the beach club burned down. Maybe someone find a quicker resolution. If they open again and make noise we will fight for the quietness again. Also in Mexico we have regulations about noise, but the new beach club ignored all. So this is taken care of. It was a pleasure to meet you and we hope to welcome you soon again and thanks to being fare with you review. It means a lot to us! Your review helps other travelers to make their decision where to stay. We are very grateful for your kindness. We don’t like to say good bye, we like to say see you soon again. Andreas & Javier
