About Elaine Edington

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 Edington purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Elaine Edington chose Downtown (Viejo Vallarta)

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 sight-seeing and fishing charters are available on our private boat. Use of the upper levels of the building is included.

Great accommodations!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 12 night this past March in the studio apartment, it's a great place! The room had everything we needed, very clean, modern and it was a few steps to a pool and beautiful view of Puerto Vallarta. Three blocks from the beach and supermarket, close to a wide variety of places to eat as well. We were there over Easter so the pool area came in handy to avoid huge crowds. If you are into the self catering type of accommodations, and want away from the noise and crowds of an all inclusive this place is for you! Owners Rick and Elaine were great as well!

5 Star service, great location and amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at Casa Neptune was wonderful!

Communication before and during our stay was top notch.

We stayed in the roof-level studio (other units available and more coming) that let me tell you has everything you need. We didn't have to pack things for the unit nor did we have to go shopping for any non-food items in sizes we didn't need and would have had to leave behind. If you VRBO much, you will understand how nice that is. And...cold refreshing beverages waiting for us in the frig upon arrival....Sweet!

Just up a couple blocks up the hill from the north end of the Malecon, this location is convenient to Old Town PV and everything in between. Convenient also to the local buses, it is a good jumping off point in any direction, uh, except west that is. Not much need for a taxi for most things.

As you will read from other reviewers, you understand that there are stairs involved and a trek up the hill from the beach, but I say this only if you are considering a stay and have mobility issues. I loved all the walking and climbing. I mean, how else can you go on vacation for a week, eat like a piggy and not gain any weight. Zero, zilch, nada.

The other thing that we enjoy, but others may not, is the proximity to everything and everyone around you. The sweet music of the community waking up each morning as everyone from the locals to us tourists starts another day in Paradise is comforting and familiar. It makes you feel like you are a local for a short time and not just a visitor in a hotel or a resort.

Thank you so much Elaine and Rick for making this another wonderful trip to PV. Your attention to every little detail is confirmation of your committment to provide each visitor with the best experience possible.

Looking forward to the next time! Miguel y Pablo

Everything was exactly as we expected. The room was great, the bed was super comfortable, the view was a PANORAMIC DELIGHT!!!!! But none of this holds a candle to the great people that own the place and the people they have helping them. It is truly our winter home!!! Thanks a million!!!! We shall return!!

Perfect Home Away From Home With Great Views and Location

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated studio in a great location.We stayed for one month and it is the perfect home away from home.

Very well appointed studio with spacious kitchen with everything you need. Elaine met us on our arrival and there were

refreshments in the fridge as well as coffee to get us started. We thought that was a nice touch.

There is a 180 degree view of Bay of Banderos and mountain views from the infinity pool just outside the condo.

Rick, Elaine and staff Luis and Petra are wonderful and made themselves available if we needed anything. Everything

was kept in immaculate condition. My husband had a great day on the ocean deep sea fishing with Rick and Luis.

The location of this condo could not be any better with close proximity to the Malecon,beaches and great restaurants.

We would highly recommend it and have already booked for next year.

Amazing view

  • 5 of 5

Our decision to rent this studio in PV was a great one! We typically vacation at all-inclusive resorts, but this time wanted a different experience. Wonderful bars and restaurants are all with in walking distance. The Malacon is only a couple of blocks away, there you will find fantastic entertainment, day and night.

Elaine the owner is amazing! She quickly responded to my questions prior to booking, making me feel at ease with my first on-line booking experience. This unit is in a great location, we always felt safe there. The entire building is well maintained and top quality linens and towels are provided. The décor was modern with lovely Mexican accents. The infinity pool and lounging area on the rooftop was so enjoyable. Drinking wine and watching the sunset was simply magical! Elaine's restaurant recommendation was right on! We ate a fabulous shrimp and sea bass burrito, cant stop thinking about it! We cant wait for our next visit to PV!

Perfect location, amazing view, beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

This property was in a perfect location in Puerto Vallarta, it was walking distance to el Malecon, the beach, and many other amazing local shops and delicious restaurants in Puerto Vallarta. My family was the first one to stay in this studio with an breathtaking view of the ocean and the town, everything in the studio was perfect, clean, and beautiful. There is a small swimming pool right outside this studio that is shared with the other three apartments managed by the same owners as this studio. I would recommend this unit or any of the other three apartments managed by Elaine and Rick, they are really nice people that will do what ever you need to feel at home. They also had an amazing staff that made sure everything was perfect and clean. This studio is amazing and the location is perfect if you want to be close to el Malecon and the beach this is the perfect place. Everything in the studio was very modern and well taken care of, the decor in the studio was very nice. There are many steps to get to the studio but it is worth it to see the amazing Panoramic view of beautiful Puerto Vallarta.
