This is a very large Villa with 2 spacious bedrooms and a very large master suite that includes a walking closet. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you would need to make a simple sandwich or to cook a full meal. The back yard includes patio furniture and a cozy private pool. Flat screens have been installed in all bedrooms and living room. Wireless internet and cable is provided. This Villa shows like new and we have made every effort to make it as comfortable as home as possible. We chose the Marina for our 2nd home because it is at a walk in distance to many restaurants, bars, markets and yes even Starbucks. The beauty of the Marina is that you will find from very affordable restaurants that serve meals from $5.50 US to more upscale one like Sonora Grill, Porto Fino, the popular 8 tostadas and el Marisco Loco just to mention a few.

About Rob Yu
Currently living in beautiful San Diego, but we call Puerto Vallarta our second home. My wife and I are habit travelers but 70% of our vacations are spent in beautiful Puerto Vallarta. We enjoy cycling and was able to find a cycling club that rides every Sunday and on Wednesdays part of the streets are blocked off for cycling enthusiast to enjoy. Also food is our passion and Puerto Vallarta has so many restaurants to offer like La Leche, La Palapa and many more were you can experience dinning authentic Mexican cuisine.
Rob Yu purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Rob Yu chose Marina Vallarta
We purchased this property because we are planning on semi retiring here in PV. so we made sure it had all the space, location and amenities we are accustomed to. We understand many people like the ocean views but for us it was more important to have a large living space and a property that didn't feel like a small typical condominium. When you stay at our Villa you will see that the secondary bedrooms are a good size and the Master Suite is large even for US standards. Several little things caught our eye in this Villa like having a jetted tub in the master bathroom, having a garbage disposal, a dishwasher in the kitchen and the cozy private pool. We also like to entertain and invite friends over to visit with us, having 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths is definitely a plus.
What makes this Villa unique
What makes our Villa unique? well other than the decor, size and amenities is the location. We love to eat out and having many restaurants, a Walmart type market (Comercial Mexicana) bars and our favorite coffee place (Starbucks) at a walking distance is just great. We like to exercise so our rental car stays in the garage most of the time, because we usually walk to everything we enjoying doing in the Marina.

My wife and I were joined by 2 friends for a relaxing 10 days - and that is what we got. Very quiet villa and complex - very clean - very safe with 24/7 security, and the guards were really great. They would also call for taxi's any time - and we always had a taxi within a few minutes. Taxi to PV was about 100 peso's. Went to Nuevo Vallarta one day - about 150 pesos - cheap. We loved not having a car. Often, on our way back from dinner in PV, we would ask our taxi driver to stop at Walmart on the way back - no problem! The property manager was also just super - very friendly - very accommodating. Lots of great dining in the Marina area - walking distance. Had dinners 3 nights in Marina, and the rest in PV - restaurant selection is just incredible -- and excellent food for very reasonable prices. The villa itself was wonderful - large - quiet - comfortable. We hung at the pool almost every day - reading and swimming. Most of the time - we were the only ones at the pool - which was a very pleasant and unexpected surprise! We also played a couple rounds of golf right there at the Marina golf course. We played it about 5 years ago, and it was good. Now - it's in really good condition - very good. The thing about this area is the overall price. We go to Maui almost every year. This trip was almost 1/2 the cost for food and accommodations. Might be changing our strategy for our coming winter get-aways and start coming here more often. If we do - we would be most pleased to stay at this villa. With our initial preparations, we reached out to the owner, Robert, on several occasions, and he was super responsive and very helpful. We really have nothing but positive to share and would highly recommend this villa (as long as it doesn't conflict with our next stay) :-)
Brian we are glad that you all enjoyed the Villa; we look forward to be able to service you again in the near future.
great villa , great location
had a great stay, everything was as advertised. would highly reccomend
Dennis, we are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. We hope to have you a guests again soon.
Clean, homey and very conveniently located property.
We spent 2 full weeks at this property and both my wife and I agree that it completely felt like being at home. With your own wading pool in the backyard, full kitchen and grocery store 3 or 4 minutes away, we sometimes felt the urge to not even leave for the day. The condo layout is very well laid out, with the master bedroom and extra bedroom (each with its own bathroom) upstairs. The master has a beautiful balcony with an awesome view of the golf course and is equipped with a patio table and chairs, making it perfect to enjoy your morning coffee. Downstairs is another guest room, also with its own bathroom and all the living and dining rooms. Flat screen TVs in each room and full washer/dryer make this condo a VERY good choice for a pleasant stay in PV. We had a couple of very minor issues (our fault, not the homeowners fault), which Mr Yu very promptly helped us take care of. I will recommend this property to everybody and we are already planning our next PV trip, hoping we can find this condo available!
Luis, we are very happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay.
We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Upon arrival the suite was filthy even had dirty dishes someone had stored in the oven. The garbage disposal didn't work the entire time. The broken microwave was replaced after 2 weeks. Husband fixed the toaster. Only half the lighting worked. The lounger chair was never fixed. We were told the quests before us trashed the place and stole stuff but I'm still finding this doubtful as the good towels and all bedding was still there. We had to beg for hand towels and face clothes. Got the hand towels but was told I could use what the maid uses for cleaning if I needed a face cloth:(. Not one roll of bathroom tissue or any hand soap or dish washer detergent so first day was spent shopping for stuff that couldn't be provided by the maid for at least 3 days. The write up claims you can make a simple sandwich to a meal...I got one small pot with no lid and 3 frying pans. No serving bowls. Keep in mind this place has 3 bedrooms so potential for 6 quests. YOU CAN NOT COOK A MEAL IN THIS KITCHEN!! Bernardo the property manager tried for the most part but even he couldn't get me kitchen stuff. Furniture is very frayed and badly worn. Nice new tvs but only 9 English channels and none of them carried new programs or news. All the pools were well maintained but be warned they are not heated. You are close to the airport so loud outside but never heard a thing inside. Overal this was a very disappointing experience. We have been renting in PV for years and have never come across anything like this. Please note that we did try and correspond with the owner but all we got in the end after one week and about 40 emails was well you can move out and I will give you back some money. Needless to say it's very hard to find a 3bedroom 3 bathroom on short notice so yes we stayed. I have written a lot of reviews on both restaurants and condos and I urge anyone reading this to look up my other reviews. You will find I'm a positive and up beat person and try to find the best in any situation but this was impossible to do so.
Our villa is cleaned 2 days prior to our guest arrival; we take pride in offering a beautiful and clean property. After numerous guests have stayed in our Villa, we have nothing but good reviews thus far and comply with reasonable requests made by guests. When appliances break, due to normal wear and tear, we act promptly to repair or replace them, unfortunately if an appliance breaks our ability to resolve the problem relies on the availability of parts or appliances, in this case the unit had to be special ordered due to its size. We feel a kitchen that offers: refrigerator, dishwasher, oven, microwave, stove, toaster, coffee maker, blender, silverware, glassware that includes wine glasses, pots and pans, cooking utensils, cutting boards and knives, is considered a fully stocked kitchen. Our Villa is supplied with bath towels and hand towels, both of which can be used as face towels. The Villa is stocked with toilet paper, hand soap and dish washing detergent, but will now make sure to keep extras stocked in the storage room for longer staying guests. All and all, we have had over 26 guests in our Villa and take pride in our customer satisfaction.
I am appalled that after these guests left the Villa, it was brought to my attention that Faby, our cleaning lady, was hired on a weekly basis, to clean every Friday, for $12.00 US and was never paid. We love Puerto Vallarta and we call it our second home. We love the culture and the hospitality of its people. It’s heartbreaking when people visit another country, enjoy what it has to offer, yet take advantage of its people. All guests have found a quick liking to Faby.

The Marina is a very popular destination for tourist and locals, it is only 5 minutes away from the Airport and it offers great restaurants from very economical like La Pergola Mia and Los Alcatrazes which offer delicious breakfast at bargain prices to higher-end restaurants like Sonora Grill, La Paloma and many more all within walking distance from the Villa. A large shopping center that includes a Walmart type super market is about a mile away. You are a short 20 minutes walk to the beach and a 25 minute drive to Downtown Puerto Vallarta and the Malecon. Did I mention a large Starbucks is at a walking distance or you could brew your own coffee with the provided coffee maker in the villa. Why the Marina? you are near Downtown Puerto Vallarta and to everything you will need to enjoy your vacation unless you are looking for a resort type of stay than you should consider Nuevo Vallarta, but if you are wanting to relax and experience Mexico at its best The Marina is the way to go.
