About Judi Rush

Ken and I were childhood sweethearts and have been married for 50+ years. We have 2 sons and 5 grandchildren. We each started our businesses 39 years ago - on a wing and a prayer. Miraculously we still have them today! We live in our hometown in Fresno, both being raised there, and have always had a spirit of adventure.

Judi Rush purchased this condo in 2009

Why Judi Rush chose Romantic Zone

In November of 2009 we joined our sons and their wives on a cruise of the Mexican Riviera. We went to Cabo, Mazatlan, then Puerto Vallarta. When we reached PV, we had a pretty good idea of what we wanted to do, and it did not involve cruise ship tours. One of our daughter-in-laws was actually born and raised in the area, so she and our youngest son were our guides. We were met at the cruise ship by a hired car and driver. It was then that our adventure began. We were headed up the mountain to a great zip line. On the way, the driver pointed out some condos that were for sale. We continued up the mountain, had a beautiful brunch overlooking the bay, and ended up at the zip line.

After some zipping fun, we headed back to Old Town. As we arrived in that area, our oldest son pointed out the condos that were for sale. He said he wanted to go look and see what a condo on the ocean in Mexico was like. We told him we only had 3 hours left to spend before going back to the ship and we were going to spend it in town. He insisted, and we humored him by going to take a quick look. Thirty minutes later we were signing papers to buy. Excited, we got back on the ship and could not help but wonder what we had just done. The problem was, it would be months before we would return for a second look at our new home. Just another reason this property is called 'Casa de Rush'!

What makes this condo unique

This was definitely a case of 'Love at First Sight'. We had been to Puerto Vallarta about fifteen years earlier on a vacation with our son and his family. We had stayed at a hotel and had a great time, but most of our time was spent at the resort. When we returned this time, we noticed the many changes and improvements that were being made to the community. When we stepped onto the property at Molino De Agua, we were immediately impressed with the beauty of the gardens. We went to the second floor and saw a more beautiful view of those gardens and an amazing brand new condo waiting for a buyer. We then went to the fifth floor and could actually see the gardens, the pool, and a breathtaking view of Banderas Bay. The condo was magnificent! We went to the tenth floor to look at another one of the last condos that were for sale. We decided it was a little too high for us (both in price and elevation) and - without a blink - opted for floor five. In the few minutes that it took to think about this purchase, we decided that there was no other place on this earth that we could find a property of this stature, with an oceanfront location, for this price and with everything literally available at our fingertips. There was no doubt, this was a dream come true and we knew if we did not purchase at that moment, the opportunity would not be available when we returned home at the end of the week. With only seven condos left to sell, they would be gone in no time.

Since our purchase in 2009, things have only gotten better. The improvements to this property continue to make it one of the most desired properties in Puerto Vallarta and we love the time we are able to spend here. The people of Puerto Vallarta are wonderful and we are all the richer for having this experience.

Halloween is a great party on the Malecon with lots of kids and candy in gay celebration. Fishing and Whale Watching are generally good From November through January. (Book activities with local tour guides. Vallarta Adventures is the company we recommend. You can book online and be sure to get the tour of your choice). New Years Eve is something to remember for a life-time. At the stroke of midnight, the entire Bay is lit up with fireworks, sometimes for nearly an hour. The Botanical Gardens are at their prettiest around March and April. The Garden Club puts on a 3 day Bougainvillea Festival mid-May. Water sports, beach time and restaurants are great all season!

Happy in PV

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth trip to Puerto Vallarta and our fourth stay at Molina de Agua. However, it was the first time we stayed at Casa De Rush. What an amazing condo. The view is spectacular, the furnishings are totally Mexican and beautiful, and the kitchen is equipped with anything you could ever need to cook. Judi Rush is so responsive on communications and answering questions. You can tell she and her husband have great pride in their home, and have put much love and effort into decorating it, equipping it, and making people feel welcome. We loved every minute of our stay, and this condo will be our first request in the future.

Beautiful beyond expectaions!

  • 5 of 5

We have traveled to Puerto Vallarta many times and have stayed in hotels, condos, time shares, etc but we have never stayed anywhere as nice as Casa de Rush at Molino de Aqua. There were 3 couples staying there and at no time did we feel cramped or in each other's way. The condo was stocked with everything you would need for a comfortable stay. The views were spectacular and the pool and beach made us want to stay on the grounds during the day. All the security and cleaning crew were very friendly. We loved the location as you were just a short walk to old town and new town and within blocks of many great restaurants. We will definitely consider staying at Casa de Rush when we return to PV. Booking the unit through Judi was very easy and she was very responsive.

SPECTACULAR!

  • 5 of 5

To the world travelers-

Felt compelled to share the wonderful experiences that we encountered while staying at Casa De Rush.

From the first (almost immediate response) communication with Judi, I knew the property would be a great location for a family get together. Judi was always responsive to emails, even after the vacation.

Upon arrival, Carlos made everyone feel welcomed and we never needed to contact him again because Casa De Rush has everything (and more) than anyone on vacation should need.

The luxury that one gets to experience with this unit is incredible.

Incredible art and furnishings! Don't forget the bean bag chairs in the master bedroom!

Morning on the patio enjoying Seattle's Best Coffee made every day a great start.

Quiet, peaceful and serene at all times.

Thank you Judi, Ken and Carlo's for making your wonderful home a dream vacation!

Beautiful, wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked through the door, we were hooked. The views are fabulous! Then, there's the condo. Even better than the pictures on website! Everything about it is lovely, classy, and comfortable. It has great amenities, from the well stocked kitchen, to the 3 bedrooms and bathrooms. For the first 7 days there were 4 of us staying in condo. the final 2 days we had 2 more, and still had plenty of room for all.

It was also nice to have a well supplied laundry room available in condo. Wifi was excellent, so we were able to keep in touch with family and friends back home.

The location is perfect. So many wonderful restaurants, and shopping. The beach is only footsteps away. Can't think of a better place to stay while visiting Puerta Vallarta. This will be our choice for future visits!

Puerto Vallarta at It's Best!

  • 5 of 5

We've been going to PV for 12-15 years and have stayed at some beautiful places. This condo was by far the most accommodating and beautiful home we've stayed in! From the moment we walked in, we realized we were in a pretty special place. The condo is huge with plenty of seating, the views are extraordinary, the decorating is first rate and the owners have done everything to make your stay easy and stress free. There are several things that are important to me when I travel to PV: location, security, views and comfort. This condo has it all. From the moment you wake up, you can make yourself a cup of coffee, check your emails via their wifi and plan your next adventures while sitting on the balconies overlooking the bay. The swimming pool is the largest infinity pool in PV and is so easy and relaxing that if all you want to do is lay on the lawn chairs and have cocktails and food at the swim up bar, your day will be fantastic.

We had an opportunity to view other similar units and I must say the owners of our condo have taken excellent care of their unit. The water pressure is superb, the kitchen is fully stocked, the water in the sinks/shower drain well and the décor is exceptional. A couple of the other units were not as nicely maintained.

We would definitely stay at this condo again because it is clear that the owners do everything they can to ensure your experience is wonderful.

Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us!

Owner's Response: Hola Robert, We are truly pleased that you enjoyed your time in our condo. It is important to us that our guests feel as if they are in their own home. We try to make it as comfortable for others as we would want it for ourselves. We have had other experiences, as you have, that have not been very pleasant. Our aim is to provide a better experience for those who come to our home. Thank you for your exceptional review and we hope to have you again. Safe travels, Ken and Judi

Exceeded Our Expectations in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

The pictures with the listing are excellent, but the condo is even better than it appears in the pictures. It exceeded our expectations in every way. We spent a great deal of time simply relaxing on the patio enjoying the gorgeous view, the changing sky (including a jaw dropping torrential rain storm and the resulting flooded river and roadways), and the endless parade of people on the Malecon and the dolphins in the bay. The unit has absolutely everything a guest could need and then some. The art work throughout the unit is lovely and perfect for the setting. Obviously the owners put a great deal of time into planning and sourcing each piece. The grounds and pool area are gorgeous, and even though the water level was down a bit in the pool for installation of a new hand rail, we thoroughly enjoyed being by the pool daily. Being in the hotel and property management business for many years I was impressed with the impeccable attention to quality and cleanliness in the unit and throughout the complex. I appreciate the amount of work and the quality of employees it takes to achieve and maintain such high standards.

We were very pleased with the outstanding service and work of all the Molina de Agua staff. We were told there are 23 full time staff which explains why the complex is the best in the area. In particular Martin, the smiling and oh so welcoming security guard/greeter/concierge/valet and one man welcoming committee at the entrance was a standout from the moment we arrived until the last time he shut the door on the last of many taxis he got for us. He is truly excellent at his job.

We met and chatted with many owners and renters daily. Everyone was friendly and outgoing. I was certainly pleased that none of the owners showed any negativity or condescension whatsoever to renters, which we had experienced previously at one property we’d rented.

Can't think of one thing that could improve Molina de Agua or this unit. But we know for sure we want to stay much longer next time and can't wait to return.
