About the property

Incredible 1Bed/1 Bath Beachfront Home, Panoramic Views And Every Amenity

Perched directly on the Pacific, waves lapping the sands below your balcony in the sky, just minutes from downtown, the history, the nightlife, the food, and the culture. All that is Mexico and Puerto Vallarta is right here.

Your home features all resort amenities including available all inclusive at a handsomely discounted price; private beach, beautiful pools, tennis courts, complimentary secured parking and some of Vallartas finest shopping and restaurants just steps away.

Too much of Vallarta's year round sun, no worries, on site medical services available. Mom and Dad need a romantic evening together, but what about junior? We've got it! We have available childcare available as well. Ever wanted to sail the Pacific? Here you can. We'll be happy to arrange one of the finest ships in Vallarta for you or you and the crew, just let us know and we'll do all the planning.

1242 is equipped with expansive marble shower and bath two full beds giving room for up to 4 guests, a pullout sofa and a hide a bed add room for 1-2 more. Personal beach chairs, umbrella, to go tumblers and cooler will make that panga trip to Yelapa even more refreshing. All the beach chairs are filled? So what? You'll have your own! Blue Tooth audio system for relaxing tunes and two flat screens just in case the big game and you holiday are on the same day. Extensive cable with multiple English news and movie channels, in case you decide to check in on the world thats not in paradise. Built in safe. Wine rack, blender, counter top oven and all appliances and necessities to have a romantic night at home, or have over a few friends. The master bedroom has pocket doors, which make it a private oasis from the rest of the home, if you care to be alone. The view from your balcony is among the best in PV, seating for 4, and room for more, with views of the night skyline, stars, fireworks, sunset, whales, beach and much more. It is all here, and that is just speaking of your home at 1242 Pacific. There is much more that awaits you in Puerto Vallarta, I hope for you to explore it all, it may take some time, but it is worth it! You will find 1242 Pacific beyond compare in location, options and amenities.

About John

It is my mission and personal commitment to each and every one of my guests to provide the best vacation experience that can possibly be had in this beautiful city and country. Every item within the property, all of the information I provide to my guests, every service offered, and every question answered I provide from the perspective of my guests. If it would make a vacation easier, more complete or in any way better for me if I were the traveller, I do my very best to make it present and available to you as my guest. Having lived here for a few years I have developed knowledge contacts, and ideas that will hopefully be helpful and perhaps bring something new to the experience of even those who have been here multiple times before. Just thinking about Vallarta for your next vacation, and have a few questions? Ask away! I am always happy to help, even if you choose to stay elsewhere. I look forward to speaking with you and perhaps having you enjoy this as your home in Vallarta.

John purchased this hotel in 2013

Why John chose Puerto Vallarta

Please see the comments about me. But it is all that you need and more, and an amazing home base, if you are like me, and come to a place to explore, and equally welcoming if you just wish to watch the waves, sleep late, and take long showers and walk to the ocean for a massage. This has everything.

Cute condo

  • 4 of 5

Very cute condo with a spectacular view. The condo had everything we needed. John was a fantastic owner to work with and he made sure we had everything we needed during our stay. Checkin and checkout were simple. The building is old and going through a remodel on the outside. The biggest thing we didn't understand was that there is an option to buy the properties All Inclusive food/drink option at $50 per person per day, but if you choose NOT to buy this you cannot buy anything at any of the hotel restaurants, bars, etc. No drinks at the pool. That was disappointing. The condo was nice for our last two nights in PV.

Owner's Response: Hi Folks, Thank you for your review. And you are correct , the resort is an all inclusive resort so all hotel guests are mandatorily required to do all inclusive at a nightly price substantially higher than the private condominiums. However the resort has extended an excellent offer to our guests to purchase at 50 USD. This way you can choose any day you would like all inclusive and not feel as if you have wasted money on days you decide to explore Vallarta's incredible culinary scene. Even with choosing all inclusive for the day our rate still is well below the hotel nightly charge. The condos are much larger, with better views in many cases and are much more like a home with living rooms, kitchens and, at least in our case, much more well equipped with most anything you need. I hope that our listing did not appear deceptive in any way as we try to be as clear as possible about all policies and procedures for all of our guests. Thanks again and we would be vry happy to have you return.

Book it and don't look back

  • 5 of 5

I'm not certain I can add much to the praises sung by prior reviewers, but they are all spot-on. This place is awesome. And John, the owner, is even better. A great condo with a spectacular patio view. It's on the beach with a casual little beach bar with good food steps away, and is a quick (and inexpensive) cab ride from El Centro or Zona Romantico. While we didn't take advantage of the all-inclusive option, it's nice to have. Thanks, John, for a great stay.

Great location and a great view in a very nice condo

  • 5 of 5

We booked 2 weeks with John after reviewing his property on line. The unit is decent size and has a great view of the property, the bay, and Puerto Vallarata. Fireworks from downtown every night. It's VERY WELL equipped. John is very in touch with his renters and attentive to any requests or suggestions. There is a new shopping mall next to the property--La Isla-- that is only sparsely filled, but directory shows all places will have tenants before too long. Restaurants across the street are very good. We went out to the Marina for breakfast and dinner--stayed in that area the past two years--as we knew the restaurants, but ate downtown most of the time. Check out the Zona Romantica area--lots of good restaurants and bars. We went to a show at the Palm Cabaret in that area. Good Did a food tour--3rd one--this time in the Pittital neighborhood--do this. Also town ones available. If you get Richardo as your guide, you'll do well--he,s great. Look up food tours in PV. Did a cooking class, wife and crew work with you to prepare your food to eat when ready. Take the bus--15 pecos for two--as it's an experience and inexpensive way to get around. We've already booked with John for next year. We love PV--always feel safe. People are friendly. This was our 4th visit to PV and look forward to 2018. Kay&Jim, Tucson, AZ

Owner's Response: Hi Guys, Thanks a lot! Great tips, the food tours are great and I have heard a lot of great things about Enrique's classes, I still have yet to try one, wouldn't want my cooking skills to embarrass him though, jeje (right). I look forward to seeing you and your friends this coming year.
