About the property

Exclusive and secure condo complex with huge, free-form oceanfront pool.

The Marina area of Puerto Vallarta is also the home to 5-star hotels like The Westin and Marriott Casa Magna. It is across the street from the Marina Golf Club, close to the airport, and within walking distance of the Marina's many fine restaurants, yet only about 3 miles (bus or taxi) from downtown and its many attractions. This gated (street and beach) and completely secure condo complex has off-street parking, 2 lighted tennis courts, an air conditioned (fully - equipped) fitness center, a snack bar at the beach (full bar) with circulating waiters, and it has absolutely gorgeous landscaping. The free-formed gigantic infinity pool is the largest in Vallarta and is surrounded by lounge chairs, umbrella tables, and cabanas. It also has a wide expanse of private beach for volleyball and soccer. A wonderful vacation spot!!

This 3rd floor condo has a beautiful view of the well-manicured grounds, the pool, the beach and the Bay of Banderas (largest in the world). The 1 BR / 1 BA condo is brightly decorated and air conditioned. The living area has high-speed fiber optic WIFI internet, an IPOD dock, CD player and large flat-screen TV, plus games and puzzles. It has a dining table for 4 and a newly remodeled, fully-equipped kitchen, including a large purified water dispenser. The kitchen counters are granite and we have recently added new cabinet doors, new silverware, dishes, and glassware, etc. Don't forget to use the juicer...their oranges in Mexico are superb. We recently added a new king-sized bed, new colorful bedspread, new bed linens, new bath towels, and new beach towels for your comfort and enjoyment. We also have a second flat-screen TV in the bedroom for your convenience.

The bath has an extra-large shower and good water pressure.

The partially covered patio is large and has another table for 4 for casual outdoor meals or cocktails.

Dash, our good friend and Property Manager will be at the condo to welcome you and to answer any questions. He also lives in the Marina so he is nearby if needed.

This condo is ideal for honeymoons, anniversaries, or for two people just relaxing in Paradise!

About Kristin Nason

We, Nancy and Harry Brown, have been vacationing in Puerto Vallarta for over 30 years. Originally we were part owners of a villa in Conchas Chinas on the southern end of town, but sold our share when we moved to Florida. We have now lived in Montana for 20 years and have been renting condos in Vallarta during that time. We own another condo in Mexico on the Caribbean but prefer to vacation here in the quaint and fun town of Vallarta. We have rented in virtually all areas of town and strongly feel that the Marina area is the most appealing. Having rented in several condo complexes in the Marina, we greatly prefer the many advantages of Bay View Grand ...gorgeous landscaping, fully-equipped exercise facility, lighted tennis courts, wide-open access and view of the beach and the Bay of Banderas, and (most particularly) the entire pool area, lounge chairs, umbrella tables, and cabanas! We rented this same condo here for the last 2 years and recently purchased it. We have made several up-grades (new king-size bed and a kitchen remodel) and have added new bed linens, bath and beach towels, dishes & silverware, etc. to make our place even more 'homey'.

We know Vallarta very well and are as comfortable walking anywhere in town NOW as we were 30 years ago. Our familiarity with All parts of town made it an easy choice to select Bay View Grand as our favorite location to rent over the years and to subsequently buy.

As an aside name (Harry) translates loosely in Spanish to Enrique a/k/a 'Kiki' so in Mexico I enjoy being called Kiki Cafe (Brown). Nancy suggested we call our condo ...'Casa de Kiki'!!!

We absolutely love it here and we hope that you will treat 'Casa de Kiki' as your vacation favorite!

Will be back !

  • 5 of 5

We flew from Calgary and were in the pools by 5 PM. Kristin the prop. mngr was there to meet us and run us through the condo as planned. Krisitin was wonderful to work with while planning our trip. Rapid response to emails etc and the communication was ongoing! The condo on the 3rd floor was more than expected. Beautiful views out of all windows, and a nice relaxing atmosphere in the condo. Everything was supplied as advertised in the condo. ! Ate most of our meals on the deck listening to the waves! The condo was nice and quiet (cement walls between units) and the deck was nice and private. I have never been to a condo unit before with such lovely and large pools. Beautiful warm and clean water and the pool staff were wonderful. The fitness club was well tooled and always empty ! Pools were virtually empty as well although we were there in Aug. We always felt very safe both in and out of the complex. We were able to walk to church on Sunday which was a nice bonus. It is about a 20 min. walk to a large local grocery mart and the bus stops right in front of the complex. 65 cents anywhere in PV for a fun Mexican bus ride. Nice walk down the beach to the Marriott hotel for early morning coffee and pastries. This hotel also has a turtle release program into the ocean on most nights at sundown ! If you want a nice restful quiet holiday this is definitely the place to stay! Damage deposit was returned in 10 days as advertised !

A piece of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Many thanks to Kristin who ensured I had a pleasant stay!! The location of Bayview Grand is SPECTACULAR!! Who can complain about a private beach, three infinity pools, a cabana that serves great food, and 24 hour security? Kristin, my "agent" was very easy to communicate with and we were finally able to meet. She is bubbly, and eager to help.

The condo itself was fine, well stocked( gotta love the beach towels and the king bed). Be warmed, however, you often get wiffs of sewer, especially in the enclosed area where the washer dryer are and in the bathroom. I think that this is quite common however in Mexico as are the geckos that show up. They are harmless however.

If you have never been to Bayview, you might be overwhelmed, especially if you arrive at night and try to make your way through the maze of towers. It would be nice, I think, for a newbie, if someone were there to greet you and give you a little orientation or, receive a map and pictures before your arrival.

My condo unit was on the second floor so the view isn't quite as spectacular as on higher floors. Nevertheless, great place to stay as you can walk to the Marina to eat or shop or you can walk to the Mexicano Commercial to buy groceries. Also, you just need to step outside and the local buses which run frequently, can take you to Walmart, Sam's , Las Galerias( wonderful high end shopping mall) , downtown or pretty much anywhere you want to go!

Love Bayview and hope to return next year in November or early Decembre, before the hoards of people!

Relaxing and comfortable property

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent a relaxing 2 weeks in this unit. THE CONDO is as depicted. The unit is approx 700 sq. ft and the extra large terrace is approx 140 sq ft. We were fortunate and had no neighbors left, right or above. The building location (last tall bldg on right when looking from beach) is probably one of the best, because there is no sun on the terrace until approx. 3pm. Most of the other buildings have morning or most--of-the day sun. After returning from a day at the pool, we enjoyed wonderful sunsets from the terrace. Also, only units on 3rd floor have expanded terraces. Adequate storage for a long-term stay, as long as you don't bring your entire closet. There is a washer/dryer n the hall outside the bedroom. Nice touches, #1 Ceiling fans w/lights on terrace, living area, and bedroom. #2 Well placed bright lights throughout. #3 Quality bed/bath linens. $4 Ramp from building to pool walkway and ramp from pool to beach. AMENITIES pool area is one of the best we have enjoyed. #1 Comfortable loungers w/ small table that are not jammed close to each other. #2 Plenty of umbrella tables that allow relief from the sun. #3 Snack bar, open from approx. 9am-5pm. Reasonable prices on both food and drink, i.e. domestic beer 25 pesos, fish/chicken tacos 80 pesos. Bar staff was attentive without being intrusive. You can take your own food/drink, but please leave your glass in your unit. There are bathrooms in the snack bar. We did not use the fitness center or tennis courts. No issues with WIFI (speed or connectivity) in unit or pool area. KRISTIN met us upon arrival and provided a quick overview. We had a small maintenance issue that she helped resolve quickly.
