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 Colonia 5 de Diciembre

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.

Penthouse suite in PV!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Puerto Vallarta, but it didn’t take us long to realize that Casa Adriana is a hidden gem!

We traveled as a couple, so our review is based on two young adults who enjoy exploration, authenticity, and also some nice creature comforts.

The location is terrific, especially if you’re not drawn to the big all-inclusive resort hotel scene. In the Zona Central, you are just a couple blocks from the Malecon (boardwalk), which we frequented almost every day, and you are a short taxi ride to Marina Vallarta, where most of the boat and day trips meet. We loved the location.

The studio suite is on the top floor with a breathtaking view, 2 pools, 3 balconies, tons of seating and places to lounge, laundry, and everything you could ask for. Armando and Luis are the groundskeepers, and we didn’t get to know Luis, but Armando is a saint! He maintains impeccable gardens, pools, and conditions, and also carried our bags up and then back down when we left, and even hailed our taxi for us.

The room itself was perfect. Comfortable, well-equipped for all of your needs, and everything worked flawlessly.

Rick and Elaine are very helpful and Rick was there to show us around and make sure we had everything we needed. He also lives across the street, so if you ever have a request he’s just a few steps away.

Overall we were blown out of the water by this place and after a week in PV, wouldn’t consider staying anywhere else!

Absolutely awesome, views, location and accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

The studio suite was very comfortable and well equipped for all of our needs. The outdoor space outside of or door was fabulous. Eating breakfast poolside with the ocean view was remarkable. We loved BBQing dinner when we weren't checking out the great restaurants close by. Christmas morning brunch at Hacienda San Angels was definitely a highlight. We felt close to everything and walked for miles along the Malecon and throughout town. We loved the market nearby Saturday mornings. With the bus stop at the corner we were able to travel easily throughout Puerto Vallarta and beyond. New Years Eve on the upper deck watching the fireworks was truly amazing. The climb up the stairs everyday was definitely worth it! This was our first trip to Puerto Vallarta and I must say I have never felt safer in any place in the world day or night.

Thank you Elaine, your studio suite was everything you promised and more!

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!!
