About Taun Hall

We currently live in the San Francisco Bay Area and love vacationing in Puerto Vallarta so much that we decided to buy a place that we could call our own. We have two kids and have been vacationing in Puerto Vallarta for many years.

Taun Hall purchased this condo in 2014

Why Taun Hall chose Amapas

This property is very special to us because it is close proximity to everything that Puerto Vallarta has offer. The beach and downtown areas are within walking distance which makes for a very convenient vacation rental. It is on a hill and you are away from the Hotel Zone but a short distance from sea and delicious food, water taxis and shopping. This is very important to our family because we really love the Amapas area because the locals are very friendly and make us feel welcome and accepted us into their beautiful city. We also enjoy eating in the downtown area. There are so many delicious restaurants that offer delicious food and ocean front sitting. We love to sit and watch the parasalors while sipping on a handmade margarita. The amazing thing is our condo is close to all the hustle and bustle of Puerta Vallarta but the unit is quiet and really offers the ability to relax by the beautiful rooftop deck.

What makes this condo unique

The sweeping views of Banderas Bay from the couch and patio are unbelievable. The unit has a Mexican architectural/design feel and is still fresh and bright. The interior is very charming with two sets of solid wood-framed glass folding doors which completely open in the living room and master suite, giving you the feeling of being outside even when you are indoors. The cross breeze, warm wood and terracotta floors add to the charm of this unit. The condo sleeps four to six comfortably.

The perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

Previous condos we’ve rented were always very modern and sleek, this villa was so charming and relaxing. The ability to open up all the doors to the patio was AMAZING!!!! And the view was breathtaking, something out of a painting.

The pictures are misleading regarding the pool. We were under the impression that the pool on the rooftop was the only one and when we arrived it was very small. There is actually a much larger pool below, but the rooftop was always empty and had the best sun!

Alberto was our go to guy for anything we needed. He was super friendly and helpful. If you need a cab they’ll get one for you, refill on the water jug, anything you need he’s got you covered.

The only thing we were a bit disappointed with was the bbq fire outside. There was no way for us to light it. Alberto brought us charcoal that we had to pay for but it still wouldn’t light. It wasn’t a huge deal because we ate out 95% of the time but just something to consider.

Reading other reviews people have mentioned the noise; it’s noisy. But only during daytime hours. You start to hear a bit of traffic around 4:00-5:00 am when everyone is starting to head off to work but it’s honestly not that big of a deal, we had no problem sleeping through it. There was also a lot of construction on the property next to us but again, nothing that ruined the experience. They have everyday things that need to get done too, right?

The walk is steep. My mom had a hip replacement and she found it a bit difficult going up but she took her time and champed it out. Also after having a few margaritas and cerveza’s makes the trek interesting but you’ve worked off the buzz by the time you get to the top just to have more!

If you’re worried about safety, don’t. The villa is very secure just don’t be an idiot and leave the doors open when you’re gone. And all of the locals are beyond welcoming and friendly if you treat them with respect.

We will be returning to this villa in the future. It was our ideal vacation spot.

The photos that are shown are for the villa complex shows things from all the units and not just one so keep that in mind when looking at number of beds or specific furniture. The beds in our unit for pretty uncomfortable so if you’re looking for a big fluffy bed you’re not going to get that here.

All in all I highly recommend this spot.

Owner's Response: Hi Dianna, Thank you for your detailed review. We are so glad that you enjoyed the condo and will be returning for another visit. We have recently made several updates to the property including paint, art work, furniture, ceiling fans and new couch cushions. We haven't changed all the pictures on the website since it was remodeled, sorry for the confusion. Also, we got all new beds last year and looked for pillowtop beds but these were the best we could find. It's hard to find decent charcoal and sorry you had a difficult time lighting it. Thanks again for staying and we hope to see you soon in sunny PV! Sincerely, Taun and Scott

Lovely stay over New Years

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a lovely stay over New Years. The space of the rental is spacious inside and out. Having 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms was great. The beds were comfortable, and the ceiling fans made the room feel cool enough for sleeping. We didn’t require air conditioning. There is noise from the road at the bottom of Hortencias Drive - I recommend earplugs if you are a light sleeper. Note the traffic noise is significantly less in the bedroom with 2 beds.

In the kitchen, everything was in good working order, and there were plenty of plates, cups, glasses, and utensils. We made use of the toaster, blender, and coffee maker, too. The kitchen was a generous size.

The unit and complex are secured. We walked everyday and evening in the surrounding neighbourhoods and always felt safe. There is a store down the hill where we purchased staples (milk, bread, wine), and the beach is close, too.

We used both pools. There were sometimes others using the pools, but often, we had them to ourselves.

Overall, we felt everything in the unit and complex was very nice. We had a lovely stay. The only small glitch I mentioned to the owner was dealt with the next day. Also, my 21 year old wants folks to know the wifi is great and reliable.

We hope to be back.

Feliz ano nuevo

Beautiful place with a great ocean view

  • 4 of 5

Overall, this place was great and I would stay here again.

Pros: good air conditioning units in the bedrooms, spacious and clean bathrooms, super comfy living room couches, plenty of ceiling fans to keep air moving, doors that expand open to turn the space into a great indoor/outdoor space, comfortable balcony furniture, great ocean views from balcony and living room, and the place is super secure and has a nice community pool.

Cons: the reason I gave this 4/5 stars is because there are a couple things that could be done to improve the experience. The first is setting some ant traps in the kitchen, as when we got here there was quite an ant problem. I know it is México and there are bugs, but we had family in another unit of this complex who didn’t have nearly the same problem. The second thing that wasn’t so great was the timing of the maid service. She came 1.5 days after we got there, we got no towel service during the week, and she didn’t come again till the day we left. I would have been much happier with her coming halfway through our visit and just changing our towels out then and taking the trash out(I’m not opposed to taking my own trash out, but we could only find the recycling).

Good to know: the place is located up a pretty steep hill. You can get to town fastest by crossing the busy road at the bottom of the hill, continuing forward to where it dead ends at stairs, and taking those stairs all the way down. We got back by taking a cab that only cost 50pesos from anywhere in old town. Also, this didn’t bother me, but be aware that you can hear road noice at almost all hours from the unit.

Owner's Response: Hi Kallie, Thanks so much for staying at our unit! I appreciate your feedback about the maid service. We provide cleaning twice a week for a week stay. If you want more you can pay 100 pesos for an additional service. Or you can let the front desk know that you need the trash taken out. They can always make sure your stay meets your satisfaction. Also, I have requested that the unit be treated for ants. We are glad you had a great time and hope you will stay again. Thank you, Taun

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Went with my wife and 2 friends for a week vacations to Puerto Vallarta.

Condo is very well situated, 20 minutes by car from the airport. Very clean, great balcony I loved to open all doors near the balcony to let the breeze flow.

5-10 minutes downhill walk to the Romantic zone and /or beach (Las Muertos), but we took a Uber to come back every time (2$ -3$); to climb the stars /road, very tough with the heat. Don't sweat it, take a cab or Uber.

Lots of activities, please visit the Botanical Gardens and go by water taxi to Yelapa. Great day there.

Our favorite beach was a 5 min cab/Uber rid; Playa Punta Negra!

8 days was not enough!!! Big Thanks to Silvia and her husband! Our hosts there.

Owner's Response: Hi Michael. Thanks for your review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. I need to visit Punta Negra, that sounds like a great beach!. We are so glad that Silva and her husband treated you well. They are wonderful caretakers of the complex and treat the units like their own. We are glad you had an exceptional experience. Come again soon!

Comfort and Convenience in Amapas

  • 5 of 5

This was our fifth visit to PV and our second stay within Villas Loma Linda; I feel like we're getting the hang of it! We definitely prefer to stay in the Amapas/ Conchas Chinas vicinity and were very happy with this condo's ideal location just above Playa Los Muertos and the Zone Romantica. The unit itself is spacious, welcoming and has everything you'll need for a relaxing stay. Restful sleep in the master BR's comfortable king bed and wonderful hours spent lounging on the scenic terrace were major highlights. Also, the staff at Villas Loma Linda are friendly, helpful and they take impeccable care of the entire property, year round. We visited in October - just before high season kicked in -- and had the pool(s) and outdoor spaces all to ourselves most of the time. Another memorable visit in the books and we're already looking forward to the next one!
