About Elaine Bustos
We first came to live in Puerto Vallarta in 2004 and bought a townhouse in the Marina area where we lived for six months of the year. Shortly thereafter, we realized that we wanted to be downtown in the heart of everything, so we sold the townhouse and bought a house. We are so happy with our decision. In 2014, we decided to buy another house and remodel the existing lower part and build up higher with new units. Its beautiful and we cant wait to share it with our guests.
Elaine Bustos purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Elaine Bustos chose Colonia 5 de Diciembre
Oh my goodness, the question has to be why not!!! You can do everything from this location, or you can do nothing at all. The unit is comfortable, extremely clean and well-maintained. And because we live across the street, everything will be taken care of.
What makes this Apartment unique
We, the owners, will be here to check you in and out. If there is something you need, we can help you obtain it. If there are any problems with the unit, they will be taken care of immediately. In-house fishing and sightseeing charters are available on our private boat. Use of the upper levels of the house is included.

Couldn't have been one bit better!
I've been coming to Puerto Vallarta regularly since I was a kid with my parents in 1994. Now I'm bringing my own kid down. This is by far the best place I have ever stayed. The photos and description don't do it justice. The stairs are actually not as difficult as I thought they would be. It's impeccably clean and fresh and safe. Its my favorite neighborhood in Vallarta bc you can easily walk to the galleries, beach, Malecon AND the biggest grocery in town. Ice cold AC! The bed was fantastic. The kitchen is nice. There is an entire house water filter. But I think the very best is choosing one of 2 infinity pools on the rooftop to watch the sunset and then fireworks sparkle off the ocean water. BTW, on the rooftop with the pool there is a bathroom, really nice grill, and kitchen sink and fridge. You could easily prepare an entire al fresco poolside. And Rick the landlord is the coolest, nicest, smartest, most capable expat you could ever hope to meet ;) He is close by, so if you have any problems
he will help and offer recommendations. He is someone with lots of experience who knows the town well. Life can be hard enough as it is- do yourself a favor and stay here if there is availability.
ABSOLUTELY THE BEST CHOICE ...
This was our first ever venture, on a holiday that was not an “all inclusive”
resort -so pretty nervous, even with all the excellent comments !!
And also our first longer term holiday for a month!
Yes!!! Everything was perfect , excellent, 5* !!! Exactly what we hoped for.
Specialty touches /decor and amenities to the unit are definitely
impressive and caring features, as well as the “property team”, who were there for whenever, and whatever you wanted! Armando, Maria, Martha.
Really is in the Heart of Puerto Vallarta!! Perfect!! Location !!
Felt safe ! Walked the Malecon every day, only 3 short blocks away!
Yes, some hills, and alot of steps, but as most other posts have confirmed...
the steps were all worth it ! Definitely!!
Where else could you enjoy dolphin/whale watching, sunsets/ and fireworks every day/night from your own front door , or roof top pools!
We are back next year ....Thanks Elaine and Ricky
Cheers, .....Bob and Cheryl, Ottawa, Canada
Fantastic vacation condo near Malecón
Great property with close access to the Malecón. My wife and I felt very safe during our stay. Excellent food choices within walking distance. Easy access to the city bus and taxi service just blocks away if wanting to head for toward the marina or other popular local destinations.
Fabulous rooftop panoramic view of the bay
Fabulous rooftop panoramic view of the bay!!!
The property was spotlessly clean, a wonderful renovation. The property owner was very friendly and responsive to any requests. Always available prior and during my stay to answer questions. I would definitely stay there again and recommend
Amazing view, perfect location, beautiful property
My family and I rented the amazing one studio apartment as well as this beautiful property from Elaine and her husband. This property was everything we hoped for and more, it was at a perfect location from town, three blocks from el Malecon and the beach. Everything in this property was really taken care of, nice, and clean, there really wasn't anything I would change, not even all the steps we had to climb because every single step one was worth it since the property has an amazing view of the beach and of the town. Elaine and her husband are supper nice people, and their staff was amazing, they will do anything they can to make sure you feel at home. I hope to be back to Puerto Vallarta and stay in this property again since it is so perfect and it had all the amenities out home has back in the states. There is a small swimming pool at the top of the building as well as a patio and a grill that we took advantage of to cook meals. Everything was perfect and we hope to be back one day.
Outstanding from booking to our last day!
This property is amazing, a fantastic experience from the moment we booked....I'm writing this review on the day before we leave because my wife and I are absolutely enamored with this beautiful place.
Elaine and Rick have put together a perfect home away from home...you will want for nothing, every creature comfort is here. Luxurious beds, huge towels by the pool, very well appointed kichen, big comfy chairs to watch sunsets in, and a pool that is to die for!!!
They have a warm and wonderful staff that keep everything clean and tidy daily. It helps if you speak some Spanish....(my wife does) and we figured it out easily. Petra and Ricky were awesome!!!
Things to know:
There are stairs and a hill....both easily navigable but on hot days with groceries it's more of an effort.
Costco is close by...grab a cab
The street vendor food is great! Try it!
There are some amazing restaurants close by...try Barcelona Tapas, Cafe des Artist and Vista Grill, you won't be dissapointed
Fireworks from the pool every night is magical
Everything you need is close by...talk to the locals...they are so friendly
The church bells are beautiful
All in all we can't say enough about this property it is a gem...thank you Elaine an Rick you've created a wonderful spot, resplendent in traditional Mexican flavor, modern convenience and beautiful style.
Within three blocks of the ocean and boardwalk. Perfect walking distance to everything you could want to do. Magnificent ocean views. Brand new in December 2014.
