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 can't 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 sight-seeing charters are available on our private boat. Use of the upper levels of the building is included.

Thus was a great stay. Rick was very knowledgeable and helpful offering tips and activities to do while here. The location can't be beat, with awesome views if the bay all day long and the most amazing sunsets. Close walking proximity to the boardwalk and all it offers ☺

Nothing could have been more perfect

  • 5 of 5

This was the best vacation we've ever had. The area in Puerto Vallarta where we stayed was perfect. We felt very safe at all times of the day or night. Everything was in walking distance, from restaurants to grocery stores to the ATM machine, etc. Our condo was also perfect. Rick took care of all of our needs but also left us alone so as not to appear like he was hovering needlessly. I would definitely recommend this whole experience to anyone who wants to listen!!

Great Apartment and Location. Great stay.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was clean and well furnished. We used the kitchen frequently and were glad it was fully furnished rather than the typical drawer full of token utensils and thrift store dishes. The common patios and pool areas provide a sweeping view of the bay and amazing sunsets. Don't let the photos throw you off...the pools are common for use by all units and not associated with a single apartment, which gives them a welcoming feel. Location can't be beat. Walking distance to restaurant/entertainment areas, beach, and the gallery area is nearby. Hosts were friendly and very helpful. Can't wait to return.

Great place to stay, bring earplugs!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful apartment, very convenient to the Malecon and great things to see and eat. The rooftop pools are shared and provide great sun and shade. The only drawback is the yappy dog in an adjacent property. It barks a lot at dawn and dusk. Perfectly manageable with earplugs! Rick is a great host.

Very satisfied!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Casa Adriana. Rick was a very friendly and helpful host and made himself available whenever needed. We also had access to helpful and reliable staff to answer any questions we had. The apartment is very beautiful and comfortable and we really enjoyed the care with which it had been put together. The only drawback, which we soon got used to, were the many stairs to get up to the apartment. However there was a lovely view of the ocean as a result of being so high up. We definitely intend to come back in the future! Len and Ruth Nyman-Kirschner

Quiet, clean, comfortable with all the amenities! Lovely perks included bottles of red & white wine, purified water out of the tap - yes, no plastic bottles and a lovely view. The owner went out of her way to meet us. She Really looks after her properties. We will book this property again.
