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 completely remodel it. It's 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 house 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.

My friend and I vacationed for a week in this wonderful condo complex. We were greeted by Elaine and a staff member who carried our bags up the steps to our accommodation. Elaine gave us information about where to go shopping and the location of several points of interest etc. The condo was well stocked with everything we could possibly need. We had a fabulous time and highly recommend this accommodation. Thank you Elaine and Rick!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Elaine's place for 5 days in March and had a wonderful time. She was there to greet us when we arrived and had someone to help us carry our suitcases up the long fight of stairs, and back down again when we left. The 3 bedroom condo was spacious and had everything we needed. Elaine was very gracious and always available to help us with questions and any needs we had. The property is unique in that you share outside spaces with guests in Elaine's three other units, which gave us the opportunity to meet some nice people and share information about activities and restaurants, etc. In addition, our unit had a private patio at the back. The view from the top floor pool area was beautiful, and the location was great, just a few blocks from the beach. There are many nearby restaurants if you choose not to cook, and Elaine can direct you to several very good ones. The next time we are in Puerto Vallarta, we will be staying here!

Great stay in Centro

  • 5 of 5

Elaine and Rick's Zeus condo is a fully featured oasis in Puerto Vallarta's Centro district. The unit is located approximately 4-1/2 blocks up from the north end of the Malecon - a convenient walk to restaurants/shopping. Leys supermarket is also a ten minute walk down from the unit. Consider a cab back if you are carrying a lot of groceries as it will be an uphill walk.

The unit is well laid out. Out front is a decent sized terrace with a view to the south-west of Banderas Bay and downtown. The living room is comfortably laid-out and includes a TV with Netflix and music channels. The kitchen is modern and fully equipped - the spacious dining area allows plenty of room to dine in style. You'll find two (optional third) bedrooms furnished with very comfortable beds, three baths with showers including soap and shampoos. Fully-filtered water is a real plus! You'll also find a large private patio at the back of the unit suitable for reading and lounging in the sun.

We really enjoyed the small roof-top pool infinity with its fantastic views of the bay, town and hillsides. A great place to spend some time soaking up the sun during the day and watching the sunset or fireworks later on.

The unit comes with maid-service a couple of times per week and we really enjoyed seeing Petra when she came by. Everything is in excellent condition and shows the care and attention by the owners. We definitely recommend this rental and hope to return in the near future!

We great stay. The location is great because you're close to the ocean and in the middle of downtown. The old section is about 20 minute walk where you can swim. The other guest who stayed in the house were very nice and the building very secure and very clean. The owners are wonderful and very low maintenance but are there if you need anything. Everything about staying there was easy. Lots of room and very quiet. I'm glad we chose this apratment.
