About the Property

Sleeps 2 ,one king bed in master bedroom. Contact owner for more than 2 persons

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Emiliano Zapata, Puerto Vallarta, Jal., Mexico:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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.
