Paradise on Earth,
What a well know travel writing company says about their visit,
I arrived early in the morning while the light was still soft and mellow, falling gently on the mountains which surround Vallarta like a guarding fortress. When I stepped off the bus I still could not see the ocean, but suddenly, for a second or two, it felt like home. It was warm, the air was salty and I felt a pleasant breeze on my skin that reminded me of the Croatian summer wind we call Maestral. The Penthouse Dolphin Dreams is a beautiful two floor penthouse situated in the heart of Nuevo Vallarta – a residential resort community about twenty minutes north of Puerto Vallarta, in the center point of the Banderas Bay And only ten minute from international air port.
The owner of the property was waiting for me when I arrived. From the first moment he made me feel very welcome and relaxed. Dana is an interesting man, who has traveled the world and lived throughout the United Kingdom. Eight years ago he decided to make his home here in what he calls, “Paradise on Earth.” Even though he has adapted easily to this Mexican beach style of life, learning to surf and paddle board almost every day, he is still a typical English gentleman with a recognizable English sense of humor. After a few minutes in his company, I realized that those stereotypes about cold, distanced and reserved islanders definitely don’t apply to him. As we were sitting in his large first floor open living room having a chat, I observed a whole variety of exotic birds.
For the first time in my life I saw pelicans sailing through the sky in perfect formation like a fleet of army planes. Later I learned that due to its geographical position, this area is a perfect location for bird watching as it is home to nearly 350 species in varied ecosystems and habitats. Dana informed me that this area used to be a swamp, which explains its rich fauna.
The vision of Nuevo Vallarta as a luxury and spacious hotel zone was a project initiated by the federal government over ten years ago. Now, Nuevo Vallarta is a residence for luxury villas and estates with tropical gardens lining the ocean canals, each with its own private docking pier.
After refreshing drinks and short informative chat, I decided to discover more about this amazing penthouse – my home during the next ten days. The position of the apartment is perfect, occupying the top two floors of the building which looms over Vallarta’s famous Dolphin Adventure Park. Most of the first level is a spacious living room extending outward to a terrace for its entire length. It provides a spectacular open view to the canals, jungle plants, blue mountain outlines and beautiful sailboats resting quietly on the still water. Sitting there, I had a feeling of calm stillness as if I were contemplating someplace far away from civilization. The living room is connected to a functional, well equipped kitchen, making this whole space even more cavernous and commodious.
The design of the first level as a whole represents a modern and contemporary approach to style. A brave contrast of colors is apparent between the large white leather couch and the deep red walls. The earthy brown kitchen is aptly chosen to appease and balance those contrasts.
One of my favorite things – a small island across from the stove – is ideal for hanging around with friends and/or group cooking. Situated at the end of the hall are two cozy bedrooms with double beds. Painted in sky blue, with their own bathrooms and small balconies, they provide you with a beautiful southern view of tropical gardens dominated by tall, elegant palms.
Although I did not see half of it, I was already very excited about this place and eager to discover what was waiting for me on the higher level. We climbed the spiral, wooden stairs leading to the penthouse. I must say I was impressed with what I saw! The living space is almost completely organized on a large, wide terrace. The only closed units are the bedroom and bathroom situated on its southern side. This space is really something unique and exceptional. I thought the view from the lower living room was unbeatable, but I was definitely wrong. This was even more stunning. There is nothing above you but a clear blue sky. You can see the whole panoramic view covering 280 degrees.
The biggest asset of this apartment’s orientation is the possibility of viewing an extraordinary attraction. Every day, just under your terrace, you can observe dolphins surfacing or watch a lions playing in the water or lying on the rocks enjoying the sun. I can’t explain how happy and excited this made me feel; strong memories of my early childhood day dreaming about swimming with dolphins in the vast ocean. Everything was just magical! Even though this space is unquestionably decorated as modern and contemporary, it has that rustic touch with its selection of natural materials and decorative objects like wall lamps and handcrafted articles. The roof of the terrace, supported by rugged wooden pilings and dried palm leaves, creates an exotic and dreamy atmosphere. This area is all about hedonism: you can cook outside in the small kitchen, watch herons at night while lying in the big hot tub or take a nap on the massive, wooden hanging bed in the shadow of palm leaves.
Beach in Nuevo Vallarta (New Vallarta). Walkable beach as far as the eye can see in both directions with the best beach front and no crowds.Turtle reserve and sanctuary. Several times a year you will witness baby turtles being release,recreation.
Championship golf courses. Walmart, Sam's Club, Home Depot, Costco, Staples & Mega all within a short drive. World class excursions are right outside your condo with Vallarta Adventures.
There is so much to do in and around Nuevo Vallarta, it could fill up your vacation days alone.Just hop on the free open air buses that navigate Nuevo Vallarta and explore Paradise Village and the other local attractions. If you golf, you'll be thrilled, with 5 world class courses within 10 minutes, and 2 within walking distance!
You will probably want to head out to Puerto Vallarta as well. There is a bus that comes by main road regularly and will have you in PV in no time.Taxis are very plentiful and it is an inexpensive 20 minute drive into downtown PV and all of it's excitement and charms.
Don't forget Vallarta Adventures swim with the dolphins, head out for the very romantic cruise, dinner and show with Rhythm,

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: Originally from England, I have been living in Nuevo Vallarta, Nayarit for the last nine years. I moved here for the lifestyle Mexico has to offer – I love sports and keeping myself in shape with swimming, paddle boarding and and working out. I ran a few successful businesses in the UK, one importing Mexican chimenea, dealing with the Mexican people for 20 years. With many years of retail management behind me, I know how important customer service is, and keeping people happy – people say that i am! They also say they feel comfortable interacting with me – ‘fun, personable, not too serious’. In my personal and business life, I take full responsibility for my actions and I set exceptionally high standards for myself. People say that I am a very likeable, trustworthy, and easy going. People often come to me for advice about real estate and life here in the Puerto Vallarta area. After serving the vacation rental business for many years I saw the need for prospective renters to know what the area they are going to visit is offering in terms of entertainment, culinary choices and adventure. But the possibilities here in this tropical paradise are boundless and it is hard to know whom to trust. With over 9 years working in real estate and Rentals and now property manage many other property i have build up a strong next work and trust in the industry. What client are saying. I hired Dana as my property manager a few months ago after some very bad experiences with other property managers. Dana has been a pleasure to deal with and is doing a great job. I would highly recommend Dana to anyone looking for top quality property management services. Dana is one of the most earnest and hard working business people I’ve worked with. He’s a great partner because of his relentless pursuit of greater knowledge and desire to be the best adviser – qualities not seen often enough in real estate people.
Why the Owner Chose Nuevo Vallarta, Nay., Mexico:
Fantastic spot! It's like a living on a patio with with a private bedroom. It's so easy to just chill out on the patio with a book. There's a regular dolphin and sea lion show below the complex for some great entertainment. Penthouse Dreams was just perfect! From the start Dana was a great host and renter. He answered all my question via email quickly and thoroughly. Everything from directions to the penthouse, to how much taxis would be and suggestions for activities and restaurants. Upon arrival, he was there for us whenever needed. The penthouse itself was the highlight of our time in Nuevo Vallarta. The beach is just five minutes away, it is not crowded, you can walk as far as the Rio Ameca, see the sea life like birds or whales and wild dolphins early in the morning, you can meet few baby turtles and help the little guys to go back to the ocean. The location of the property is ideal. It is right in the center of the Vallarta Adventures, so you can watch the dolphin and sea lion shows right from the balcony. They also have some really nice tours on offer if you prefer to get out and explore. The beach is less than five minutes by foot and there are dozens of restaurants and several convenience stores within the same range. It is all the convenience of a resort area without all the drunken tourists. We found the area safe and serene the entire stay. The views are to the east and sunrise over the Sierra Madres was always beautiful. It is a short and pleasant walk to the beach, which was never crowded and always clean. We spent more time playing in the ocean than during any prior vacation. A fabulous and funky place to chill out. Very private and unique, right on the marina. Dana is the perfect host, going that extra mile always to make our stay a truly great holiday. Penthouse Dreams was just perfect! From the start Dana was a great host and renter. He answered all my question via email quickly and thoroughly. Everything from directions to the penthouse.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We had been searching for unique accommodations in the PV area and the Penthouse delivered beyond our expectations! It is super chill.....The combination of its, location, privacy, security and serenity was exactly what we were looking for. Such a treat to wake up and look down to the water to see dolphins and sea lions. If you are headed to Nuevo Vallarta and looking for a romantic yet convient rental this unique Penthouse is heaven on earth. The 270 degree view was an added bonus as there was always something to see from our perch on the rooftop. Dana was an absolutely fabulous host, his thoughtful and personal attention during our stay went far beyond the 'call of duty'. He was an incredible resource for information about the area and a fun person to spend time with. The penthouse was a fun and romantic place to stay, and it is indeed very private. We stayed the month of November into early December and the weather was perfect. (We came home with good 'all over' tans.) We also really enjoyed our balcony view of the Vallarta Adventures Dolphin Experience. This was not at all intrusive or disruptive to our stay, and it was fun to watch the shows and the very impressive training and care of the dolphins and sea lions. Dana was a wonderful host. He picked us up from the airport and even took us to the store on our first evening so we could stock up for the week.He added nice little touches to make our honeymoon special. The penthouse was amazing. It is perfect for relaxation and privacy. The pictures don't really capture how massive the outdoor area is. You could easily have 40 people hanging out upstairs and it wouldn't be crowded. The hot tub is also great and perfect for a nice soak when the mood strikes you. Dana was an excellent host! He showed us around on our arrival and helped us out as needed through out the stay. He went above and beyond the call of duty as our host.
