Whether you are looking for a Romantic getaway for 2 or bringing your family we welcome you to our Casa Estrella de Mar (Starfish Home). You will find this is one of the most convenient locations in Old Town Vallarta. Our condo is located in a brand new building called The Park, situated on the corner of Parque Lazaro Cardenas and Pino Suarez in the heart of Old Town Vallarta, just one flat block from Los Muertos beach and the famous Malécon/Boardwalk with an abundance of restaurants, cafés, taco and fruit stalls, clothing & jewelry shops, galleries and theaters. There are two elevators, main floor gym, and Sky Terrace on the 7th floor with a salt water pool, 2 Jacuzzis and BBQ and kitchen, these amenities are even more than you can expect from a Resort Hotel. At the front desk you will find the 24 hours security desk and the office of the Building Manager who is available to answer any questions you may have. Wifi is available in lobby and Sky Terrace areas.

Our 944 square foot spacious unit decorated by Chawnalee of Crate interiors has custom designed furniture crafted locally, to suit our taste. The master bedroom with king bed is comfortable and roomy. Plenty of linens and towels and beach towels are provided. The bathroom is large and well laid out. The kitchen is complete with stainless steel appliances, gas stove, electric oven, water/ice maker fridge, microwave, coffee maker, kettle, blender, pots and pans, dishes, cutlery, wine glasses and patio tumblers. There is a water purification system throughout the building. The granite counter top and backsplash make cleaning up a breeze. Dial 200 on the white phone under the microwave to connect with security in the lobby or friends in other units.

In the living/dining area is a 42” TV with cable, wifi, a couch that opens easily into two single beds and dining table for 6. Wall to wall sliding patio doors open onto a large balcony that has mountain, park and ocean views.

On Saturday mornings enjoy a stroll around the seasonal Market held in the Lazaro Cardenas park below with vendor stalls from restaurants, bakeries, fruits, vegetables, artisan crafts, clothing and jewelry. Many independent grocery stores on every block and larger grocery chains like Mega and Soriana are a short bus ride away. If you want to venture further hop on a local bus (just across the road) and for less than $1 you can ride down town where you will find large malls and stores like Sam’s Club, Walmart’s and Costco and Home Depot. Check out the links included.

If you need a break from strolling the town and would rather relax then grab your swimsuits, beach towels (stored in the laundry closet) and head to the 7th floor spectacular Sky Terrace where you will find a 25 meter salt-water, heated ½ Olympic infinity pool, 2 Jacuzzis, plenty of loungers for relaxing, couches and overhead TV’s in a large shaded area. Wifi is also available on the Sky Terrace. Enjoy preparing your lunch or dinner on the barbeque provided and do your prep work in the kitchen close by. Male and female washrooms and an outdoor shower complete the list of wonderful amenities available on the largest Sky Terrace in Old Town Vallarta. And last but not least and even more amazing are the 360 degree views of the Bay of Banderas on the west and the Sierra Madre mountains on the east. On the north side are the beautiful views of the Old Town with the famous steeple of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Marina and Hotel Zone and on through to the Airport, Nuevo Vallarta and Bucerais skylines at the north end of the bay. On the south the views stretch out to more beautiful jungles views and Spa Resorts like Garza Blanca and many others. Sunsets from the Sky Terrace alone will make your vacation at The Park very memorable… so don’t forget to pack your camera.

About Allan and Lynette

As Canadians we are always seeking warm getaways during the long winter months so it was while staying at a Resort Spa winter of 2014, 12 miles south of Puerto Vallarta we fell in love with Old Town/Romantic Zone the minute we stepped out of the cab and into the streets on a visit into town. We were in search of fresh coconuts and were not disappointed when we found Luis on the corner of L. Vallarta and Achilles Serdan with a loaded cart of the most refreshing and healthy drink that mother nature ever provided. As we ventured further towards the central town (Centro) we discovered many friendly store keepers who just let us wander in and out without any pressure to buy anything. Smiles abound in Old Town Puerto Vallarta and the friendly vibe captured our interest. With many, many years of vacations on Mayan Riviera and on the east coast, and other Caribbean islands this town drew our attention and as soon as we arrived back home we planned our next trip back without a second thought. But no remote resort for us, we rented a condo in Old Town and instead enjoyed the feeling of belonging to the local community. It was on this second trip in August of 2014 that we walked into the almost completed “Park” building. We were awed by the spacious and well-appointed units, the private balcony views and of course the Sky Terrace with its views and amenities. Needless to say within a couple of months we were owners of a 5th floor condo and we enjoyed our first stay there during New Years 2014 and early January 2015. We are looking forward to many more and longer vacations in our second home “Casa Estrella de Mar” the Starfish Home. We hope you will enjoy your stay in our condo too and soak in some of the wonderful warmth and culture of the people in Old Town Puerto Vallarta.

Allan and Lynette purchased this condo in 2014

Why Allan and Lynette chose Romantic Zone

We love the convenient location just 1 block from the beach and Malécon, restaurants, cafés and grocery shops, Mercados and much, much more. For us there is nothing more enjoyable than a morning walk on the beach, then a stroll back to the condo passing the fresh orange juice cart to fill our thermos then back across the park, past the zumba class, to pick up some fresh baked croissants at the Paris bakery and head back to our casa (home) to enjoy breakfast on the balcony. Grocery shopping at the local stores and meat shops to cook lunch and dinner or eating at one of the beach restaurants makes for a casual and relaxed afternoon, then watching the sunset from the Sky Terrace and another evening walk on the Malécon when the fruit, crepe and ice-cream vendors set up their stalls rounds out a perfect day for us! Every new day we spend in Old Town we discover new places and people and many local attractions, events and recreational activities to enjoy.

What makes this condo unique

The central location eliminates the need for cars or taxis (taxi rates are reasonable) and the bus stops close by take us wherever we need to go. The safety of the town and the charm and friendliness of everyone around gives us a sense of belonging to the community. The beautiful mountains, bay, beach and town captures our interest and will forever evoke lasting memories. Salud to Old Town Vallarta and all it's residents and travellers.

Great little condo in the heart of the Romantic Zone with all the comforts of home. The owners, Allan and Lynette, were so kind and great to communicate with prior to our arrival, and the staff at The Park are top notch!

A great place to stay in PV

  • 5 of 5

This is my second stay at The Park and I can say it is a great facility and location for what I like to do in PV. The roof top pool area is a real plus. The condo is very nice and well equipment for my needs. Hope to stay again next year.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

I write this review with a tinge of hesitation because I would love to keep this fantastic place a secret all to myself.

The place is beautiful, new and incredibly comfortable. Nicely decorated throughout, but I have to make a special mention of the bedroom's king size mattress. Without a doubt, one of the most comfortable I have ever slept on, it was heaven.

The rooftop terrace and pool, wow. Stunning views from all directions of the city, the ocean and the surrounding hills. The infinity pool was stunning and there are two small separate jacuzzis. Even the patio furniture was nicely appointed.

The condo is located in a great, modern building in the heart of the Romantic Zone and central square. It is a block or two from the best restaurants, bars, shops and beach. Could not have been more convenient.

We were there for the long Easter weekend which is incredibly packed and busy with tourists and partying. With the patio glass doors all the way open, you get a full wall open to the warmth, light and sound of the bustling town below. But shut the doors, turn on the AC and you get a comfortable, completely quiet and lovely place to have a deep sleep.

From the very start of my booking to the moment I left, the experience couldn't have been better. Allen and Lynette were lovely to work with, and the property manager and building staff were friendly and as helpful as a luxury resort staff.

Just finished a stay here and can't wait to book again.

Pretty good with some issues

  • 4 of 5

Unfortunately, most of the units in The Park condo face a very noisy street (Cardenas) that carries non-stop bus traffic so don't expect to even use your balcony or even keep your sliding door open unless noise doesn't bother you. The internet in the condo and the rooftop was up and down throughout our visit and complaints to the building and property managers were ineffective. We had a two outages of several hours and many shorter outages of a few minutes. In my experience, cleaning service is normally more proactive for condos in PV and this property manager was willing to send a cleaner mid-week, however, it's up to you to call the manager and schedule a visit. The property manager didn't have the combination to the safe in the bedroom and didn't really want to go through the ordeal of resetting it but instead said you don't need to worry. It's true the building security is very good however the safe should be functional. Oddly enough, many cabinets in the kitchen were locked, however, it was fully functional. The living room is missing a comfortable chair. The A/C works very well. The rooftop terrace is very nice and quiet with a wonderful ocean view and long infinity pool however they had issues with the clorinator not working so there were two days when the water didn't look as clear as it could be although it did improve over time. A notice was posted to this effect so it wasn't my imagination. The house rules are generally enforced which meant strangers were not supposed to access to common areas. I've stayed at other condos where people bring friends to party in common areas which is not fair to renters. The condo is well located close to restaurants and bars which is both good and bad. On Sunday night, one club was booming music at 8 am but luckily this only happened once and the bedroom had sliding wooden doors and located away from the noise. The security deposit is not a real deposit so don't expect a refund. I thought that could have been explained better up front. The building doormen were very friendly and helpful. The owners are very responsive to your questions.

Owner's Response: Hi John It is unfortunate you did not enjoy the location of our "second home". The central location (without steep hills to climb) is an asset to those who love to explore the neighborhoods, dining places, Malecon and beach easily and travel economically on the local city buses for more distant explorations. I wish you had mentioned about the problems you had with the safe during your stay, our property manager would have been over to help you as he is always responsive to our guests. I understand not everyone is used to the digital code method. Thank you for your feedback. Kind Regards Allan and Lyette
