Bedrooms 3
Space 3,400 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 6 nights


About the property

3 bed 3 bath Beachfront luxury Panoramic Sea and Riverside View Tasteful decor

LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION is not the only thing that makes Molino de Agua the premier residence in the Zona Romantica of Puerto Vallarta. This prestigious unique condominium residence is located in“Old Town” where the Rio Cuale meets Banderas Bay and the famous Malecón seafront promenade.

Here, you are in one of Mexico’s most popular fun in the sun destinations where you will encounter friendly people, great food and new experiences. The best of traditional Mexico is still alive and flourishing in Old Town.

Molino de Agua offers new secure beachfront luxury with private landscaped gardens on the edge of a picturesque river. Imagine, having riverside and ocean front views from your terrace and both accessible on private walking paths.

Since all of the condos being offered for rent in Molino de Agua are beautiful the usual way to distinguish between them is the interior design and furnishings and, of course, the seasonal rental rates which can vary. Also, upper level units (7th flr to Penthouses) attract slightly higher rental rates because of the spectacular view (whale watching and cityviews).

Our unit 708 in tower eight has been treated to a tasteful makeover to upgrade and create a fresh look and spirit that we know will enhance your vacation. Our extensive list of features and amenities is shown in the section below.

Concierge service is also available, at slight additional cost, to meet you at the airport, deliver you to your condo, go through a familiarization briefing and take you shopping for food . Your Concierge is on call for all your needs and we will try our best to give you blue chip service during your stay.

In addition, you will feel safe and secure with the presence of an English speaking security staff patrolling on duty 24 hours a day in our private gated oasis. All the staff are very friendly and able to answer most of your questions so feel free!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Lee:

We had a truly wonderful time in Puerto Vallarta, in no small measure thanks to your beautiful accommodations. We could not have asked for more in terms of comfort, cleanliness or such beautifully appointed decor. The wall of windows that seamlessly merged "inside" with "outside" allowed us to soak in so much more of our environment and the wonderful views of the bay and the city than would have been otherwise possible - and that setting alone went a long, long way in making our time in PV so satisfying. I do not think I have ever slept in a more comfortable bed - and the ability to sleep so soundly goes a long, long way in making a vacation that much more enjoyable. And, I fell in love with the Malecon - as I ran on it every single morning, loving being so close to the sea and taking in all the beautiful bronze statuary and the occasional dolphin that pop up in the waters beside me.

Lastly, I keep thinking about the beautiful picture of the native woman and her daughter that hangs by the front door. There was so much to see in each of their faces and it is one of the many wonderful memories I carry with me from your home.

We had great fun "keeping Bob's secret" - and we all have all come home with very happy memories.

Thank you again for sharing your wonderful home with us.

The Personal Touch

  • 5 of 5

Viviane and Lee are the nicest, easiest people to rent from. They make us feel like we are their personal guests. The apartment is incredible...fully stocked, especially for my husband who loves to cook. They provide every amentity you would want or need. The spectacular views give the best of the ocean, coastline of Banderas Bay and the hills. Each night experience the lights of the city and fireworks from the pirate ship. 6 weeks never went so fast. How lucky we are to be able to share in Viviane and Lee's slice of paradise! Looking forward to continuing our visits at El Buddha...

Lee and Viviane's condo 708 in Molino de Agua exceeded our expectations 2 years in a row, and we eagerly look forward to our next stay. The beautiful furnishings, tasteful artwork (much of it Viviane's personal photos), complete gourmet kitchen, and breathless views of Banderas Bay from the 7th floor balconies must be seen and experienced to fully appreciate. And it is obvious that Lee's goal is for every guest is to enjoy complete delight and satisfaction. In short, for all Puerto Vallarta visitors who enjoy condo living, this place can't be beat!

Amazing Residence and the best location that we could ask for.

  • 5 of 5

This was my first experience with a VRBO and I was a little hesitant at first. The owners were very helpful and offered all of the assistance that I needed. The property manager, Patricia was extremely helpful and checked us in and out. The condo was very well appointed and had everything that we needed. We felt very secure with the doormen greeting us every time we left or returned to the unit.

The pool was out of a Four Seasons Resort and we enjoyed using it after a day at the beach. There was also a swim up bar and plenty of lounge chairs and umbrellas to relax under. I cannot say enough good things about the unit, comfortable beds and fantastic views of the ocean. There were many mornings that I spend relaxing on one of the lounge chairs listening to the waves crash on the beach.

The Best Beach Condo Unit in Puerto Vallarta 708

  • 5 of 5

"Really" what more can I say that hasn't been said in the reviews below. I agree 100% with all of them. I have stayed at other Molino De Aqua units. This is by far the very best in terms of location, furnishings, views, well equipped and stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, cleanliness, and superior service by Lee and Patricia. Read on if your not convinced.

Owner's Response: We love getting reviews like this that demonstrate the value of making an effort to keep things to a high standard in our condo. It's not really hard to do when you have considerate guests like Arthur who treat your place as if it were their own. Thanks Art and we look forward to having you as a guest again.......soon!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Our experience with Lee and Viviane was excellent, they made it easy to rent their home in PV. The stay was wonderful, loved the condo, views, pool, pool bar, everything about it. The proximity to all of the restaurants, shops, galleries and beach is perfect. We've stayed in many different condos in Puerto Vallarta over the years, and this building was definitely the best. El Buddha has all of the amenities you need for a comfortable, enjoyable stay. We would highly recommend it.

Luxury right in the heart of PV

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautiful. The reservation process was easy. Large couch on an enormous patio overlooking the bay and river was a wonderful place for killing time and a cerveza while the ladies were primping. Master bedroom and bath were enormous and luxurious. Bring earplugs, since you are right in the middle of the Romantic Zone and it can be a little loud. Just a wonderful place to stay.

Owner's Response: It is wonderful to get wonderful reviews like this one. So far we are hitting home runs and that is because we have a terrific property manager who works very hard to keep the condo in top condition. And the view from the terrace is certainly one of our best friends. But a compliment like this review from Mike adds value and we appreciate that immensely. Thank you mucho.
