About Jordan MacPherson

Roger and Nancy were both born and raised on Mercer Island, Washington. They both attended Washington State University. (Go Cougs!) Together they own a construction and design company in Sammamish, WA. Their first trip to Puerto Vallarta was over 30 years ago, and they couldn't help but go back. They fell in love with the area with its unparalleled views, fantastic restaurants, and vibrant culture. They purchased #504 in 2002 from Roger's mom and stepdad, Sharon and Ron Selset, who were one of the original owners in the building. Their daughter Jordan handles the rentals. Roger and Nancy couldn't be more thrilled with their condo and to share it with you.

Why Jordan MacPherson chose Emiliano Zapata

The Romatic Zone in Puerto Vallarta is a true treasure of Mexico, nestled below the plush jungle hillsides with its cobblestone streets, picturesque beaches, and phenomenal views. As the city has grown, it has maintained its friendly personality and rustic feel, so no worries, you will always feel safe.

What makes this condo unique

What makes unit 504 unique is the location. There is no where else you would want to be. Being on the 5th floor in a corner unit allows incredible views and additional privacy. Not to mention the condo was recently remodeled, designed by Roger, and is one of the nicest in the building. Roger and Nancy are also art collectors and the condo is outfitted with works from local artists.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a fantastic trip to PV and thoroughly enjoyed staying at your wonderfully equipped condo. The views were magnificent and location couldn’t have been better. We ate out 5 nights and didn’t have one bad meal; we were so impressed by the restaurants. The staff in the condo were all very helpful and polite, offering assistance and suggestions whenever needed. We really couldn’t have had a better trip and loved every minute of it. I’m still enjoying my morning coffee from A Page in the Sun. Hopefully we’ll be back again!

The BEST location in all of Puerto Vallarta!

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed at Plaza Mar 7 or 8 times in the past, I've always wanted to stay in a unit with a wrap around balcony giving me a view of the Malecon and Lazaro Cardenas Park. Well, this is the one for that! The apartment is tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable. It's wonderful to be able to walk 2 or 3 short blocks to eat and be back on your own veranda for drinks within minutes. This was my sister's first trip to Mexico and she was concerned about the safety of it all but, after having walked the Malecon, the first evening after we arrived, she had no fear about it. She went every a.m. and walked from one end to the other and even got in on some TRX that they had every day. She loved that she was still able to get her workouts in. Jordan is a great hostess and, if we'd needed anything, she or the staff at Plaza Mar would have handled it in a heartbeat. This is a great place to stay you just have to sign up a year in advance for high season because the secret is definitely out on #504.

Breathtaking Views!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 loved this condo!!! It was right in the heart of Puerta Vallarta and everything we needed was within walking distance. I felt very safe just letting our teenagers walk around the area and to the beach by themselves. Would definitely rent again!!!

Located in the romantic Old Town section of Puerto Vallarta, this condo is in one of the most beautiful buildings on the beach. It has the old-world Mexican charm blended with all the conveniences you need to enjoy your vacation. It is a privately-owned secure building in an incredible location, at the south end of the Malecon, right next to Lazaro Cardenas Park. Some of the most authentic restaurants in Puerto Vallarta and the finest art galleries are just a couple minutes walk. And it is just a few minutes further along the beach to the pier, where many daily water excursions depart.

Plaza Mar is not a timeshare or a hotel. There is no walk-in traffic or large travel groups checking in at midnight. It is gated and private for your protection and to take you away from the entire outside world. Plaza Mar is a peaceful retreat away from home with many year-round residents. This is not the place for 'spring breakers,' who would be happier downtown near the clubs or at one of the resorts out in the Hotel Zone. Come & enjoy.
