About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 4

Acqua condominiums are located in Riviera Nayarit, in the gated tourist community called Flamingos. Positioned centrally on the Bay of Banderas, our beachfront condo has wonderful views of both the Sierra Madres and the Pacific Ocean. At Acqua, you will enjoy direct access to the longest and widest beach on Banderas Bay. You can walk or run for miles in either direction on the soft, sandy beach. At low tide you can walk out into the bay a few hundred feet making this beach great for families with young children. Just up the beach are rentals for kayaks, catamarans, sail boats, windsurfers, boogie boards, paddleboards, and opportunities for parasailing, horseback riding, and banana boat rides. Take a longer walk along the beach to the quaint town of Bucerias where there are many great restaurants, lounges, and a Mexican market.

It’s not uncommon to see dolphins and humpback whales from the beach or our balconies. Relax in the beautiful double infinity pool or the lap pool on the beach. The pool area has modern patio furniture including many private cabanas, and the grounds are beautifully landscaped. Sunsets are amazing and not to be missed.

Our 2 bedroom, 2 full bathroom condo contains nearly 1000 sq. ft. of living space, and is located on the 5th floor with great ocean and mountain views from two large balconies. Enjoy grilling and eating outdoors on one, or simply relaxing on chaise lounge chairs provided on the other. Each balcony has sliding glass panels that open completely to create outside/inside living. Our fully upgraded kitchen boasts a full-size refrigerator, a gas oven, 4-burner stove top, a microwave, and a dishwasher. Also provided are a coffee maker, blender, toaster, slow cooker, bread making machine, portable mixer and all necessary kitchen utensils and cookware. The condo’s open floor plan includes a dining table that seats four, and a living area complete with Satellite TV, DVD player, and a VCR. A selection of DVDs and VHS tapes are provided. Wi-Fi is available in the condo and by the pools. The master suite has a queen size bed and master bath and the second bedroom has a double bed. Each room has an air conditioner plus ceiling fans. The unit also has a private laundry room with washer & dryer. New floor tile was installed in the entire condo in 2016. Our condo is managed locally by a property manager to assist you should the need arise. Cleaning service is provided every other week with a multiple-week reservation.

Acqua is located 20 minutes from the airport. There is shopping close by at MEGA, Wal-Mart, and Sam’s Club. There are many championship golf courses in the area and a nearby gym. If you’re interested in organized tours, Vallarta Adventures is located just up the street from the Acqua complex.

Bus service to Puerto Vallarta and taxis are available right outside the Acqua complex. The security guards will help you get a taxi. However, we would recommend renting a car for longer stays to be able to enjoy the surrounding countryside. Off street parking is available.

Full time security staff is on site 24/7 in this secure complex. USA Today included Riviera Nayarit as one of the best and safest travel destinations in Mexico. In addition, the American Automobile Association (AAA) emphasized the quality of services offered at this location above those found in much of North America.

We are confident that our home will provide you with a vacation you will always remember, and that you will want to return with your friends!

About Sylvia Sorensen

We retired to the Puerto Vallarta area in 2005 and moved into Acqua when it was completed in 2008. We absolutely loved living on the beach and swimming in the huge infinity pools. We lived there for 5 years until moving back to the United States to be closer to family in October 2013. While we miss Acqua very much, we are eager to share our home with beach loving travelers.

Sylvia Sorensen purchased this condo in 2005

Why Sylvia Sorensen chose Flamingos

The mountain and ocean views from our balconies are phenomenal. The large pools and white sandy beaches are some of the finest in the world. At low tide children can walk out 100 feet making it a safe family friendly beach.

What makes this condo unique

We left a fully equipped kitchen complete with a gas oven and dishwasher, amenities that many condos in Acqua do not offer.

New floor tile was installed throughout the condo in 2016.

Sylvia's condo is very clean , cozy and homey.

Cheerful furniture , fully equipped kitchen , very pleasant.

Only one thing was missing , some kind of shade , sun screen on the east side of condo . In mornings is too bright without any protection .Everything else was great !!!!

Owner's Response: I understand about the shade, which is why we always had breakfast on the deck using the umbrella as a sun shade.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent two wonderful months in this charming and comfortable condo. The kitchen is so well equipped that meal preparation was easy and pleasurable. A slow cooker, rice maker, bread maker and full size oven are not normally found in a rental condo. The gas barbeque on the balcony was a further asset and the dishwasher made clean up easy. Spices, oils and vinegars were available as was a generous supply of paper towels and toilet tissue.

The queen bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable, as were the reclining chairs in the living room. Shower stalls are large with plenty of hot water and there are lots of large fluffy towels. Games, movies and a variety of books are available and my husband particularly appreciated the cable TV.

The view from the two large balconies is gorgeous and the lounge chairs and eating area allow you to enjoy it all day long. It is also a great place for star gazing.

Booking with Sylvia was so easy and responses to all questions were answered promptly. We definitely recommend this property; you will feel right at home. We did and are returning next year.

First of all Sylvia the owner is great to work with! I visited Acqua Flamingos with my mom and my teenagers, the condo was very comfortable for all of us, with excellent views. The balconies are fantastic. It has everything you need. Acqua Flamingos has friendly staff, with a lot of security.The pool is amaizing, some days it was just for ourselves. Great location, We definitely recommend this property!

Very nice stay

  • 5 of 5

We visited the condo at Flamingos Acqua for a birthday celebration with friends. We found the condo to be all it was described as on the site. The owners were VERY pleasant and professional to deal with. As we are owners ourselves we appreciate the same level of quality as we provide.

It is a truly enjoyable place to stay and we will likely book again when we go to N.V....Sue & Regitta

Home away from home...but much, much better!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do this place justice. Vern & Sylvia's condo is a true gem! We were met promptly upon arrival by their property manager. Huge living area and spacious decks, fully appointed kitchen and bathrooms with everything you need - from oils, spices and paper towels to soaps and toilet paper (other owners of rental condos should really take a page from their book!). Kitchen is equipped with dishes and cookware to prepare whatever you like. Comfortable beds, recliners and loungers are terrific for snuggling up with a book. Effective air conditioning units cool the condo within minutes. On-site private laundry is a nice touch! The deck faces a neighboring resort and you can see/hear their nightly show. Property boasts a huge swimming pool and the pool area was never crowded at any point during our stay. Just steps beyond the pool is the beach and ocean if that's more your style (and far less crowded than the neighboring resorts). Security is terrific, guards are everywhere! Excellent location, just a 10 minute drive into Bucerias for great dining and shopping (we went daily) and plenty of other amazing places within an hour in either direction (rent a car! Don't miss out). All in all it was a smooth, comfortable trip, and a great home base for adventures - we would definitely return!
