About the property

You Deserrve the Best - Life is Too Short - Make the Most of This Vacation

My condo is located in Porto Fino - one of the most prestigious full service condo developments in Puerto Vallarta.

This unit is actually a 3 bedroom condo but I have set aside one bedroom for personal storage.

This means you get all the benefits of a 3 bedroom unit at a 2 bedroom price - an extra 900 sq ft of living space - a 3rd bathroom - 35% more balcony space, and lots more.

So why not enjoy this and all that Porto Fino has to offer.

- Stunning views of Banderas Bay, city lights of Puerto Vallarta, Pacific coast and mountains

- 12 acres of manicured lawns and gardens with more than a mile of secluded sandy beaches

- 24 hour security, tennis courts, a modern gym, and a fully equipped business center

- Infinity pool, whirlpool, snack bar, private palapas on the beach and friendly staff to pamper you

- 5 minute walk to an 18 hole golf course and marina with restaurants, shops and galleries

- 15 minutes by bus or taxi to downtown Puerto Vallarta and the recently renovated Malecon

- Conveniently located next to the 5 star Mariott – Westin – Velas Vallarta hotels

- All the amenities of a first class resort with sunshine 322 days a year

Puerto Vallarta has something special for everyone: great beaches, fishing, golf, cultural events, trips to the jungle, night clubs, lots of great restaurants. Puerto Vallarta was recently voted by Conde Nast Magazine as the 'friendliest city in the world'. The city has a modern infrastructure and conveniences but has also managed to maintain its unique Old Mexico charm. You will feel like you are taking a step back in time. A marina and cruise ship port attract visitors on ships and yachts from all over the world. English is widely spoken, especially in the downtown shopping and dining areas.

Wonderful unit

  • 5 of 5

The view is better than advertised.

Pool and beach area are magnificent.

Weather was perfect.

Ben was good to deal as well as his management team

Appliances are getting tired but his management people said it's all been redone and October

Wife would have liked lighting and area for makeup and unit needs hair dryer

Would love to go back and soon.

Terrific Accommodations and Location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from four fantastic weeks at this beautiful condo in the Porto Fino condominium complex. The views from the spacious 15th floor balcony of the beautifully landscaped grounds, the large pool area and sunsets over the ocean cannot be beat. The large living area and well equipped kitchen and BBQ on the balcony provided all that we needed. As two couples, we appreciated the separated large bedrooms with ensuites and walk-in closets. The building is very safe and secure and the quiet residential Marina area had many restaurants, a weekly market and easy walking. Buses and taxis are available just outside the front gates to head downtown or to larger shopping complexes. The pool area provided lots of sun and shade and there were always places to sit around the pool or on the beach. The owner, Ben, met us on our arrival and was extremely accommodating during our stay, always available for advice or assistance. Thank you Ben!

wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation. The condo is terrific and the veiws are outstanding! The condo is very comfortable and felt like home. We stayed for the whole month of Jan. 2015 and did not want to leave. The condo has everything you need and then some. The complex and pool are wonderful and has a resort feel.

Ben the owner was fantastic to work with. He is a great guy and very honest. This is important when your vacation and money which you work so hard is in the hands of someone you don't know...

This was truly a vacation to remember!!

Gorgeous condo with great views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the week of New Year's Eve and there were a lot of people partying on their balconies but thankfully the condo was well insulated so it wasn't a problem for sleeping. The condo was beautiful and big with a huge balcony overlooking the pool and the ocean. The furniture and beds were all very comfortable. Ben the owner was so nice and went out of his way for us on a couple of occasions. When we ran out out propane for the bar-b-que he was very apologetic and filled the tank as soon as he could. Our son was sick and he even offered to call his doctor for us because we do not speak Spanish . Ben also surprised us and drove us to the airport at the end of our stay.

There are a few beach vendors on the beach if you enjoy shopping like I do. We were always able to find a great place to sit even thought the resort was quite busy . The pool area is one of the nicest I have seen, very well looked after and lots of chairs .

If you like Mexico but like to feel more you like you are in Florida this is the place for you. There was not the Mexican charm you find in older places but it was so nice that we were ok with that. It is about a 5-10 min walk to the marina and is very close to the airport.

the best I vacation condo I ever reanted

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo in January - it was perfect for two couples travelling together. We had a wonderful time in Puerto Vallarta and a great part of that was due to this beautiful condo and its amenities. We couldn't get enough of the constant ocean views and sounds--this was absolutely perfect. Also, it is walking distance to everything that you will want or need. Our whole experience with this property, from first inquiry to the amazing first impression at walk-in was above expectations. We recommend it 100%
