About Bruce Zelony

My life's motto... Nobody's perfect, if they We fell in love with this apartment because of the serene feeling we got the moment we saw it. Sometimes it's nice to be an adrenaline junkie and sometimes we just want to relax, we also like doing both in the same day. Love the nice things in life and LOVE finding the right hole in the wall for dinner. Balance is my favorite word.

Bruce Zelony purchased this condo in 2014

Why Bruce Zelony chose Romantic Zone

After visiting for 20 years I knew that Puerto Vallarta is special and this neighborhood makes me feel at home. It's quaint and only 2 blocks away from world class dining, across the street from the beach and high enough above the street to make the world slip away.

What makes this condo unique

Always been attracted to Ocean Views. I visited newer, more modern buildings yet kept circling back to this unit, far above the street there's a remarkable feeling seeing the Ocean and the Mountains when you look out on a corner unit with wrap around windows.

Guestbook comments from the manager

When I arrived to casa santorini and the property manager opened the door to the condo it was a big capital Wow I was so taken aback by the view out of the windows that it took my breath away it took me several moments to turn around and look at how fantastic the whole penthouse was 360 degree view windows of the world all around you overlooking the bay and islands. Bruce was very very swift with his response to me enquiring about the Penthouse. During the month I was there Bruce called several times to check to make sure that I had everything I needed to me that was was Fantastic. I would recommend to anyone to stay in this penthouse Casa Santorini I was there for one month I had such peace and quiet I had such a view I could not have asked for anything more thank you once again Bruce.

Great condo in PV

  • 5 of 5

The arrangements and the condo were just as promised and the arrangements for checking in and out were carried out smoothly. It's a great location, close to beach , some music at night, but reasonable. Sitting on the deck with the view was the best. Would rent again,

Stunning views with open air living!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location, the views and that we were able to cook our own meals with the fresh seafood and produce found in local markets. We spend a lot of our leisure time sitting on the balcony watching the whales, dolphins and boat/paddle board activity in front of the apartment. It was an incredibly relaxing holiday and while we went for long walks in the mornings we, most looked forward to our early afternoons with a marguerita and some fresh salsa and chips as we watched the world go by on the Bay of Banderas. The only thing I wish that I would have brought was a pair of binoculars as there was so much to see!! Highly recommended.

All I can say is WOW

  • 5 of 5

The views are more then amazing, this home is truly a home, as you walk in the front door everything is exactly as it looks in the pictures but better! the home is clean and well taken care of, the furniture is nice and comfortable, the view is spectacular with about 30 feet of glass to see from one end of the Bandares bay to the other. Even though you are about a block and a half back from the ocean and there are a few buildings between you and the water you can still relax and hear the waves crash on the sand, the view and the sound of the beach is so relaxing, yet still high enough not to hear the people and the city noise. As stated in the description there are a few stairs, hit the gym and spend some time on the stair climber before your trip, if you use the beach side to go to town or the beach its a hike of stairs that will have required you to have some healthy legs, the other side on the hill is an easy half flight up and you are on the street, but if you want to walk its a hike down a hill, the beach side is better for entry for sure, just be in some sort of shape for it. (plan ahead) Do not let the stairs slow you down the area is super quite and peaceful and super close to the beach. In a nut shell book this place now do not wait it wont last in high season, even in low season it wont last, and it is so worth it for the view and amazing space to call home for a few days!

Fantastic condo in a fabulous location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 full weeks and didn't want to leave. Bruce's condo was just right for the two of us. With a longer stay, it was great to have a washer and dryer. Everything was comfortable and just as it appears in the pictures. The view is GREAT! The maintenance and concierge service were helpful and friendly (though very little was needed while we were there). There was good water pressure in the shower and the A/C worked well during the unseasonably hot and humid days. It's true that there are many steps to go from Amapas up to the condo. However, on more than one occasion, we returned later in the evening, having the (very inexpensive) taxi drop us off on the highway level, making it all quite easy. This is a unit that we will most likely stay in, again!

Located in the aptly named Zona Romantica (Romantic Zone) eclectic, bohemian and home to galleries, restaurants, nightlife and a thriving gay community, the adventurous and the open minded will have plenty to do, see, taste and enjoy. 1 block from the Blue Chairs beach resort, travel on cobblestone streets as you explore the quaint village. Sip coffee down the street for hours or lay by the pool.

Adventurous types can enjoy paragliding, banana boats or jet skiing. If action is not your scene, perhaps you'll enjoy watching it from the balcony. For your adrenaline rush, try one of several zip lining companies, swim with the dolphins or visit Chicos Paradise, a restaurant in the middle of the jungle.

Take an evening cruise aboard the Pirates of the Bay, a family friendly event complete with fireworks or enjoy one of several cocktail cruises on the bay that cater to different lifestyles.

There are a number of excellent beach front dining choices to fit everybody's budget, from Dollar Margaritas to Luxurious Private dining by the ocean. Perhaps a private chef is what you want to create a memorable evening? No matter what your taste and budget, Old Puerto Vallarta has something for you.

Our professional concierge service can make recommendations, reservations for dinners and activities.

Disfrtutate! (ENJOY YOURSELF)
