About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This privately-owned Condominium located on the 6th floor has been remodeled in a classic Mexican style, 1450 square feet. The building is located on Los Muertos beach near the Rio Cuale River, and the new footbridge to the north side of town. The area is also known as Old Town and Zona Romantica. We are right on the beach; restaurants and shops as you walk out your front door. There are several small grocery stores near the building. No need for a cab or rental car.

This spacious, well furnished condo has two bedrooms - both with king-size beds, two baths, fully-equipped kitchen, living room, and dining room. Both the living room and master bedroom open on to the terrace that has an unobstructed 180 degree view of the ocean and beach from north to south. We ask that smoking be done on the terrace and not in the condo-thank you. (Sorry, the building allows no pets.)

About Craig Holmes

My name is Craig Holmes and I was raised in Petaluma California. I was in the Office Equipment Business for 30 years in Monterey California. My primary residence is Palm Springs. I do however live 4-5 months a year in Puerto Vallarta.

Craig Holmes purchased this condo in 1992

Why Craig Holmes chose Romantic Zone

I purchased this condo due to location, view and management of the building. It is close to all the restaurants and night spots. It is a very peaceful place to stay.

We just returned from Puerto Vallarta & this wonderful condo. We spent a week there with my parents & everything was just great. The condo was big & comfortable & tastefully decorated, the kitchen came fully stocked, & beds were comfortable. The large deck & the view, well you can't improve on perfection! And the location, wow! The pool was wonderful, & it was great to be able to go up there & just relax, read a book & take a dip. We bought some groceries mostly for breakfast, lunch & snacks and then went out every night for dinner. There are so many fabulous restaurants to choose from, we never went to the same place twice. We loved the atmosphere & vibe of old town and will return again in a heartbeat to this place & this condo. Craig was a breeze to work with.

We would rather keep this place a SECRET!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say about it? This condo is the best place we have stayed in Puerto Vallarta and would come back here in a heartbeat to stay at this one! This place is perfect! In fact, we had much discussion about whether or not we should even post a review or not. We would like to keep this one for ourselves! Yes it's that good! Purely selfish intentions on our part. But after we re-read everyone else's posted reviews. We decided, what's one more fantastic review going to hurt.

It is a large condo with the Mexican décor and flare! Two bedrooms and 2 bathrooms are perfect, plus a large kitchen with cupboards galore and they are filled with all you need to live here! The location is just perfect! Walking distance to everything! We were there off season, so yes there was construction, but it didn’t bother us. We enjoyed ourselves and just loved it! There was only one drawback, and that was the internet. The wireless did not work in the condo. We had to go down to the lobby to make our mini tablet connect. The internet works fine if you hardwire it to a laptop, which we didn’t bring. But all in all, we loved this place and will definitely come back! Thank you Craig for graciously renting your condo to us! We appreciated all your professional attention!

Just as we'd hoped, even more. As described, lovely, convenient to everything. Best part, working with Craig was awesome. He was so understanding, great communication. Wish all VRBO owners would model after him. Thanks so much Craig for sharing your lovely digs!

Perfection on the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Craig was easy to work with and the property was clean and exactly as described/pictured. Housekeeper came everyday. The balcony overlooks the beach and is a great perch for sunsets. All the TVs are flat screen and compatible with Chromecast. Beds are short for someone over 6 feet tall. We didn't use the pool, but went up one afternoon and it was clean and serviced. There were about 10 people using the rooftop which has a nice canopy for shade. We are going to make his condo our PV home-away-from-home as many times as we can.

Best Location

  • 5 of 5

This was are first time visit to Mexico as well as first time user of VRBO. Both were great experiences.

Thanks to Craig , he made it all so easy and comfortable. Quick on his Reponses via email and very informative.

Craig's condo is very spacious and clean. Has the best views from the balcony up and down the Malecon.

Mater bedroom was very nice , had it's own bathroom ,sliding doors opens on to the balcony, we left the door open at night and we fell asleep to the sound of the ocean. Second bedroom was also very nice ,faced the jungle side ,also had it's own bathroom.

Kitchen was great, everything you would need.

The location was the best ,walking distance to everything.

The beach is right there .

We arrived late on the first night , so in the morning we took an inexpensive cab ride to Walmart. Stocked up on are refreshments and snacks.

We for the most part ate out, there is so many great restaurants all very close, was fun trying different ones every night.

Will defiantly stay at Craig's condo again.

Great Condo, location and staff!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from our first trip to Puerto Vallarta and we totally fell in love with the place. The condo itself was great (spacious, well stocked, great location and an amazing view of the bay!). The location was perfect close to everything (restaurants, cafes, nightlife and of course the beach).

We will surely make this a yearly trip and will definitely stay at Craig's condo!
