About the property

Over 1200 square feet of oceanfront living just steps from the beach.

You can’t get any closer to the beach than this!

Gorgeous beach-front condo with only a heated pool between you and the ocean. Spacious, open & beautifully decorated, you will love taking breakfast (and dinner?) on the patio and watching the pelicans skim the waves. High ceilings and sliding glass doors lead to breathtaking views of the entire bay from the city to Los Arcos and beyond. Parking, 24-hour gated security, 2 elevators, bi-lingual reception staff and a bus stop outside.

See city lights, cruise ships, the Pirate ship, evening fireworks, awesome sunsets, plus whales (in season), dolphins, birds and manta rays from the privacy of your deck. Fully air-conditioned including ceiling fans on the terrace & both ceiling fans and A/C in every room. Master bedroom has Queen bed and 4-piece ensuite. Guest bedroom with King. Loads of cupboards. Fully equipped kitchen. Separate dining and living areas. Washer & dryer. WiFi. Satellite TV. Pets welcome. Smoking on the outside terrace only, please.

Close enough (10 minutes) to the city but far enough removed to enjoy the quiet and calm of this premier property - and there are no vendors on this beach!

About Steffany

I grew up in Vancouver and then moved to Toronto. After my marriage, we lived in Florida for a while but we always headed to Puerto Vallarta every chance we got so after my husband died, I decided to move there. When I found the summers too hot, I moved up to the mountains just south of Guadalajara but I kept the condo in Vallarta because it was just too beautiful to give up!

Why Steffany chose South Zone

I wanted to enjoy the best Vallarta has to offer - white sand beaches, magnificent views of the Bay of Banderas, pelicans skimming the waves, colorful bougainvilla and gorgeous palm trees - without the crowds, but still be in easy reach of downtown with its nightlife and restaurants and recreation. This is it! A little piece of heaven.

What makes this condo unique

No matter where I am in this condo, I can see and hear the ocean. The front is all glass sliding doors - both from the living area and the master bedroom - that lead out to the patio. At night I fall asleep to the sound of the surf. Mmmmmm or should I say Zzzzzzzzz

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a really wonderful time thanks. The apartment, location, pool and beach were all wonderful, and the staff and other tenants very friendly. We hired a car and used your guide books to explore the area and found great beaches and boat trips. We are very keen to come back to that area of Mexico soon. We would be delighted to recommend your apartment to anyone. Many thanks

Best place I have stayed in Puerto Vallarta - will definitely be back!

  • 5 of 5

I have been to Puerto Vallarta and stayed in a variety of accommodations but this one was my all time favourite! The condo had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and although it was a little further out than I have stayed before, there is a bus stop directly across the street which takes you into town for a mere 7 pesos! I was in town almost every day and had no problems with the short (10 minute) bus ride back and forth. It is also located on the road to the Botanical Gardens so a wonderful afternoon was spent hopping on the bus and exploring the gardens. The balcony and pool area are the highlight. When I wasn't on the balcony enjoying the sound of the crashing waves, I was in the heated pool. I still miss falling asleep to the sound of the ocean and I promise I will be back very soon!

Location, surf, heated pool, quaint beach, amazing view and Stefanie's sweet place were everything as advertised. Only lost a half star for sheets and pillows needing serious attention.

Thanks Stef!

Beach-lovers paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We booked Steffany's condo because it looked like it was the closest to a sandy beach at a very reasonable price. Boy, did this place deliver! When the sun shines directly on the waves, you can see straight to the sandy bottom. The see-through emerald waves brought tears to my eyes, it was that beautiful! There is a rocky outcrop by the beach that's a haven for tropical fish. We spent hours snorkeling and filming the fish that kept on about their business as if we weren't there. The rest of the beach is sandy, with a slight drop off that causes the waves to break close to shore only, so we could float and bob to our hearts content! This beach is semi-private, due to the distance from town and because the public entrances are a little far off. As for the condo itself, it's true to the photos, with beautiful natural stone tiling throughout. The water pressure was awesome, with never ending hot water, very important to wash off the salt and sand of a typical beach outing. We enjoyed the huge patio, drinking coffee there in the morning, or wine in the evening. It met all our needs and then some. Be warned, you should plan a thorough grocery shopping outing by taxi (about 200 pesos each way) as there are no stores within walking distance. You can take the bus for 8 pesos to the nearest Oxxo convenience store at Conchas Chinas for basic stuff, the orange and white bus line is the only one you need, and the stop is right in front of the condos. The building staff are very helpful and polite, quick to provide help with their cart to unload groceries and deliver to your door. They also keep the building safe, keeping gates locked, areas constantly monitored, with nothing that would disturb any of the guests. Doris was our first contact, and she was helpful, kind, polite and overall wonderful!

No doubt, this has been our favorite vacation stay, and that has been mostly due to this rental. Thank you, Steffany, for this opportunity to have truly lived the Puerto Vallarta experience in comfort, beauty and style!

No disapointments. Would go back in a heart beat.

  • 5 of 5

We wanted for nothing. Condo is everything that is advertised. Beach is clean and nice for the morning walks. Ocean was a little on the rough side for a lot of our stay but no problem for experienced swimmer. Heated pool is just down the stairs. Bus stop outside the door, taxis also available outside the door. We had family stay with us and condo has more than ample room for two couples with infant. Patio is perfect for spending outside time and view from there second to none. Doris and staff were friendly and helpful. Restaurants and groceries are a 15 minute bus ride into old town Puerto Vallarta . Good place to kick back and relax.

Summerland. Canada.

Wow! What an incredible place.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful condo on an exquisite beach. It has everything including comfortable beds, great bathrooms (the master even has a tub), perfect living room for relaxing and entertaining, and of course the balcony for lounging and looking over the ocean. The beach has a wonderful shallow entry so even kids can wander in and out yet it is great for paddle boarding and kayaking and, perhaps best of all, there are no venders! Bus stop outside the door dropped us off at the top of Basilio Badillo, the main street in the Romantic Zone, where there are all kinds of stores and restaurants. I can't think of a better place to stay.

Worst experience ever

  • 1 of 5

We rented for a year at Casa Steffany. The owner agreed to put in a new stove as the old one was rusty and dirty. The dishwasher didn't work and took two months to have it fixed. The back room leaks during raining season causing mold on the wall and in the second bedroom so our guests could not even stay there. We had to rent another condo when are guests visited. I called the owner to give a 30 day notice that we would be leaving at the end of March instead of the end of our year which was the end of May. She agreed that that was fine. I had paid 1st & last month and security deposit when we moved in. I mistakenly paid rent for March again and asked her to return my money for the last month. All of a sudden her story changed and she says she did not agree to us leaving early and refused to refund our money. The washing machine broke our last month there and she refused to fix it. We had to send our laundry out. We went to collect our security deposit after we moved out. She gave us a check we couldn't cash. And after going back 4 days to collect our security she finally left at the desk a lesser amount saying it was to cover supplies and for a broken phone that we didn't use, we had our own phone. Do not rent from this landlord. There is no reasoning with her, she just hangs up on you.

Owner's Response: Isn't it amazing how some people try to blame others for their own issues? The condo association received so many complaints about these folks that they finally demanded they be asked to leave. Not only did these tenants (illegally) run a business out of the condo while they were there, they turned off the air-conditioning in the spare bedroom so that everything became covered with mold, and then destroyed TWO stoves (the original and a new replacement), a dryer (which they ran continuously) and generally made a nuisance of themselves But hey, why should you believe me and not them? I suggest you a) read the other reviews and b) contact the condo management directly. If you want their number, please either phone or email me and I will happily give it to you.

Perfectly located to give easy access to all that Puerto Vallarta has to offer.
