About the property

This amazing, spacious, two bedroom, two bathroom condominium is located in the wonderfully upscale neighborhood of Conchas Chinas. It is a short bus or taxi ride to Old Town and only 5 minutes from the famous Conchas Chinas beach. There are two delicious restaurants with full bars across the street, a taxi stand and bus pickup.

Mexican charm and elegance abound in this ample corner unit at the celebrated Costa de Oro condominiums in Conchas Chinas. North end corner residence with lots of windows through-out making it bright and breezy. The views are incomparable from almost every point of this residence and the open floor plan gives a feeling of ampleness. There are authentic Mexican details through-out such as terracotta color tile flooring and "Parota" dark wood carpentry. An oversize terrace with a spectacular panoramic ocean view make an ideal spot for sipping margaritas and "Al Fresco" dining. The kitchen features an oven, 6 burner gas stove with a grill, dishwasher, refrigerator and all the other amenities you could want. There is also a full size washer and dryer in the condo available for your use.

This charming condo also features a large, flat-screen TV and DVD player in the living room with a good assortment of DVDs. There is enough seating for a small gathering. The living area opens up to the large terrace with a dining table with seating for 6 and gorgeous views of the bay. There are also games, cards, books and puzzles for the whole family to enjoy. The dining room table has seating for 6 with beautiful table linens and serving dishes.

The spacious bedrooms both have en suite bathrooms and flat-screen TVs. The master bedroom features a king size bed, dvd player and opens onto the fully covered terrace that features a full 180 degree view of the Bay of Banderas. The guest bedroom features two twin beds that can be put together to make a king and a small sitting area with a large window that lets in natural light- a perfect area for curling up with a good book. There is also a pull out twin bed and 2 aero-beds available.

Other features of the condo include filtered water, central air conditioning, cable tv, wireless internet, telephone for local calls, magic jack phone for calls to the US and Canada, iron and ironing board, washer and dryer, hair dryer and plenty of sheets and towels.

The gorgeous, heated swimming pool has stunning views of the bay, is well kept and has lounge chairs and tables and umbrellas available for your days in the sun or evenings under the stars.

The condo is perched on top of a hill to offer amazing views of the bay. Just below the unit is a conveniently located, well-lit staircase that takes you right to a taxi stand at street level. Less than 100 feet away is a bus stop, and directly across the street are two restaurants and bars. You will hear some road noise when the doors are open.

The well-maintained building has security gates and cameras, an elevator and security guards 24/7.

This condominium is ideal for your stay in Puerto Vallarta, whether it is for a few days, weeks, or months.

About Julie Weinman

I am a native Californian. I love to travel and learn about new cultures. I speak fluent Spanish. I have lived in Panama, Australia and Mexico City. I have been married for 20 years. My husband and I bought this condo because we have been going to Puerto Vallarta for many years together and decided that we eventually would like to retire there.

We currently live in Auburn, California with our wonderful dog, Sammy.

Julie Weinman purchased this condo in 2014

Why Julie Weinman chose Lower Conchas Chinas

We would love to retire in Puerto Vallarta. It is the friendliest place I have ever been, easy to get around, affordable and beautiful. We chose this condo because it is located in a safe neighborhood close to the romantic zone and downtown. It has amazing views and is a well-maintained building with an elevator, 24 hours security guards and heated pool. The inside is tastefully decorated in the classic Vallarta style with rich peralta wood, tile floors and built in furniture.

There are steps from the pool (about 100) leading to the main road. There is a taxi stand and 100 feet away the bus stop.

What makes this condo unique

The view is breathtaking. I love sitting on the terrace drinking my morning coffee and watching the cruise ships come in. There is also nothing better than a Puerto Vallarta Sunset.

Great location! Amazing view, secure, very comfortable accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our entire first experience in Puerto Vallarta and these accommodations were a big part of it! Most people feel inclined to book accommodations in the “hotel zone”...this condo is at the opposite side...and highly recommended. You have a beautiful, quiet retreat, with great access to bus and cabs for the 5 minute ride into Old Town. We often walked. We did find the street noise below didn’t allow us to leave the balcony doors open at night, but it was tolerable with the side windows. We could have closed everything up and used the air conditioner but chose not to. Communication with Julie was great. She was very helpful with any questions and quickly responsive. We truly loved our time spent in this home.

Our stay was perfect! From the location, to the property staff, there is not one thing I would change. The beach is just a few minutes walk away. The views of the property are stunning! I would definitely go back!
