About John Florence

A grower of renowned Zinfandel grapes in Northern California's Sonoma County foothills, Puerto Vallarta has long been for me the perfect retreat for the times that the farming allows me to get away. I hope you'll help me make the most of my beautiful condo. Hopefully I can provide you a sample of my wine, but if not, there is a great wine shop and wine bar just around the corner! Cheers! Jack.

Why John Florence chose Emiliano Zapata

As my other home on the vineyard is "away from it all", I've long been in search of an urban getaway where one can walk to a variety of attractions, great dining, shopping, nightlife -- without the need to drive. Puerto Vallarta has always been on my short list, due to it's idyllic winter weather, and renown for being Mexico's most open and accepting city, and easily accessible. I happened upon this building as a renter, and found the location, and the rooftop terrazzo, so appealing that I began to inquire about possibilities.

What makes this condo unique

Condos due vary quite a bit in this building, and I was fortunate to find one available with large corner windows and balconies. Although the building also includes studio apartments, I found the one bedroom setup to feel more like "at home"; it's a place I could stay for weeks or months at a time. The two outdoor balconies are the cherry on top!

Lovely propert

  • 5 of 5

We were very excited about the property location. We were close to excellent restaurants, the beach and fish markets! The condo is cozy, well cared for with a spectacular pool. The owner was great about answering all our question and getting us settled in without a hitch! We will return in a heartbeat!

In The Heart Of It All

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I have been to Puerta Vallarta many times but always stayed along the beach. Not only did we not miss anything, we felt that we found so much more because we were in the middle of it all. From this location, you can walk down to the beach in the day, walk into town to the Makecon at night. There are bars and restaurants everywhere and all just outside the door. However, each night as we strolled home after a full day, we'd be amazed that just as you'd turned the corner to the condo, it would be quiet.

The condo itself is very clean and quite comfortable. The roof has ample seating and a beautiful infinity pool.

If I had recommendations for improvement, it would be for the site management. There are two hot tubs on the roof as well, but they are not kept hot. It would have been lovely to sit in the hot tub on the roof at night and look at the stars and light of the city.

Great location and perfect amenities

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at V399 and we absolutely love it! John was easy to partner with and fast at responding to availability and questions. Very professional.

This was our first time in Casa Zinfandel but I loved having the second full bathroom. Definitely helps speed up getting ready in the morning to get to the beach. The location is fabulous! Right off the main drag of restaurants and bars but far enough that it's quiet and 3 blocks to the beaches. We loved waking up and making coffee and sitting on the balcony. Definitely will be back!

It was a week of paradise, felt like living amongst the locals and enjoying all the culture had to offer! Loved the condo, location was wonderful and within walking distance to everything you could want. The beach - just a couple blocks away! The rooftop pool was magical and the people there are all so friendly.

I will be back! Thank you John!
