Property type condo

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 8 Sleeps

You will be in for a real treat when you first walk into our 'Penthouse' Condo. The balcony is one of a select few that is very over sized at around +/- 1,000 square feet. It is also on the most desirable side of resort, and building as you will have views of El Centro or Downtown PV (and all of the Bay of Banderas from the balcony) as well as the pool etc. out of every window! This Resort is now unique among the new modern resorts and Condo's that have been built in recent years. It has the feel of a more original style Mexican Resort with lush tropical vegetation as well as Peacock's, Iguana's and many types of Birds stopping by. You will not feel like you're in Miami here....if you want that all modern look go to Miami!

The Condo Unit has had a recent Kitchen remodel, The A/C system was completely replaced in 2015, Also the Mexican Decor and decorations redone recently.

Velas Vallarta participates and assists the Giant Turtle Sanctuary in protecting and assisting the baby turtles, during the hatching season, at 8-8:30 every night that they have them, (I have seen between 4-250 at a time) you and or your children can go down to the beach and security will let you have a baby giant turtle to release into the ocean! A once in a life time experience that will be one of the most memorable from your trip!

The Resort offers Full Service amenities all of which are included in the cost of rental, except for All-Inclusive meals and drinks and or high speed internet (basic wireless internet is free). You can add the All Inclusive plan if you would me or email me for details. I would suggest NOT doing All Inclusive....There are so many wonderful restaurants in the Area, why limit yourself to just the Resorts! Also, HOUSECLEANING is ALWAYS ON SATURDAYS...this cannot be changed. If you want additional Housecleaning mid can call housekeeping and they can do it for additional charge...i believe it is 450 pesos, or about 25$ US.

Excellent!!! Beautiful views and spacious condo!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay here. The views were breathtaking and the condo was extremely spacious for all 6 of us who vacationed here. We spent many afternoons on the large balcony where we BBQed and enjoyed the sunset. Since there is a grocery store nearby we decided to stock up and cook some meals ourselves. The condo has everything you need to feel like you are cooking right at home. Except with a much better view! The resort staff was also wonderful and we enjoyed staying out by the pool as well. Steve was great to work with and we will definitely be back in the future!!!!

Great resort and great unit. We will be back next year.

  • 5 of 5

Great place. We have being going to Velas Vallarta for twenty years as we have a one bedroom time share there. We had also wonder about getting an end unit and this year we did. We were so happy with Steve's space. Plenty of room for 6 adults. We will be back next year!!

Wonderful place, perfect location, beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for a week in late May. It was simply wonderful! Steve was great to work with from the start, very accommodating, and made the effort to make sure our stay was comfortable. The resort as a whole is beautiful, and this condo has the most spectacular views. There were a couple of items inside the condo that needed fixing/updating, but it did not greatly affect our stay there. The resort is great for kids, with everything from the kiddie pool, play structure, kids' club, and very helpful staff. Upon our return home, we had hardly left the airport and my kids were already asking to go back. We would love to stay there again!

Another Great Week in Mexico!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying in Steve's condo and our fifth year at Velas and it did not disappoint! We enjoyed many nights on the balcony and days at the pool/beach. We love sitting on the balcony watching the sunrise over the mountains and the sunsets at night. Steve is very easy to work with and accommodating.

Best view in Puerto Vallarta!

  • 5 of 5

We were two families with kids ranging from 4-12. When the kids heard about 'iguanas at the resort' the decision was made. And the condo and resort did not dissapoint! From morning coffee on the veranda watching the sunrise, to floating the lazy river with an iguana a foot away, enjoying the gorgeous tropical vegetation and super convenient access to the beach, this vacation was perfect for the adults and kids. Thank you Steve for sharing your slice of heaven with us!

Beautiful Spot in this World

  • 5 of 5

We love Puerto Vallarta and we love Velas Vallarta! The staff is superb and the grounds are gorgeous. We feel a sense of calm and relief from our busy lives the minute we walk in the lobby. We also loved staying at this condo. The views from the terrace are unbelievably gorgeous, whether it be watching a sun rise or a sun set. The condo is spacious, well equipped and comfortable. Steve, the owner/property manager was very responsive and wonderful to deal with. We will definitely return to this beautiful spot on our earth!
