Open-air penthouse apartment at the south end of Puerto Vallarta's Zona Romantica. This modern Mediterranean-style 3-bedroom 3.5-bath apartment sleeps up to 6 people comfortably and offers a sweeping 180-degree view of Banderas Bay.
It’s a 2-minute walk to the beach (1 block--down a set of steps) and just minutes from Puerto Vallarta’s best restaurants. This quiet condo encompasses the entire top floor and is located close enough 'to it all' to be fun and convenient, but far enough to enjoy privacy and relaxation.
There are two master bedrooms, both with king-sized beds, private bathrooms and great ocean views. The third bedroom has three twin beds, two of which can be pushed together to create another king. The third bedroom also has a garden/jungle view with a peek at the ocean and a private bathroom as well. Please email me for a link to more photos and video clips.
Designed by Mexican architect Diego Mendez de las Penas, this one-of-a-kind building offers unobstructed front row seats to some of the world’s most amazing sunsets, viewed from the top floor of an architectural masterpiece. You’ll be inspired.
This was our third stay at Penthouse Villa Blanca and it won't be our last! This wonderful place has become our home away from home in PV. It is perfect for traveling with friends as the bedrooms are very private with their own beautiful views and the spacious, open living area is a stunning place to hang when you're feeling social. You won't want to leave the penthouse, but you will, because you're only steps from Playa Los Muertos and all the bars and restaurants in the Zona Romantica. The owners, Shawn and Sandeep are great to deal with and the property manger, Jose Luis, is very helpful. We have our best vacations here!
This review is going to sound so glowing that you'll think I know the owners. I don't. My friends and I have been to PVR six times and have stayed at the Villa Blanca Penthouse four of those six times. You really can't get a better location in Old Town PVR than Villa Blanca. It's literally steps (3 minutes) from the beach and the view is 180 degrees of ocean and Old Town beauty. The open air feel of the penthouse is fantastic and results in a very "roomy" and relaxing feel. You're inside but you feel like you're outside as well. The penthouse is spacious with 3 nice sized bedrooms. We had a group of 4 in February and we put 2 in the large front bedroom and one each in the mid-size room and smaller back bedroom. Each bedroom has its own full (nice sized) bathroom! On top of that, there is a 4th guest bathroom. The kitchen is well stocked with plates, utensils, appliances, and a coffee maker. The building manager is onsite during the day and is very nice and helpful. There was only one issue we had to deal with on our last stay and it was resolved. The electronic mechanism on the safe in the master bedroom wasn't working. We contacted the owner (who responded promptly), and we were given the master key to use for the duration of our stay. Honestly, I cannot say enough nice things about the Villa Blanca penthouse. This will continue top be our group's "go to place" on any future trips to Puerto Vallarta.
Shawn and Sandeeps penthouse in Villa Blanca is a magical space. We, a group of seven, found the condo met and exceeded each of our expectations. From, booking the reservartion, the location, to the staff the entire experience was seemless. We would reccommend this place to anyone seeking a beautiful place with fantastic views and convenience access to the beach and Old Town.
We stayed in Villa Blanca for 7 nights and had a wonderful time. The place is gorgeous and has everything you need. The staff were great to work with and met our needs quickly. The views of area and sunsets are indescribable. I will say it is not a place for those that cannot or do not like to walk. There is a slight hill up to the building and of course the stairs to the penthouse. Well worth the walk though. I would not let this discourage you. Jose and staff will carry your luggage for you too. Always easy to get a cab if you need one as they stay right out in front. There is a great little market with essentials and alcohol. Also, a great restaurant, Fusion, for any meal of the day. Of course, there a many great places to eat in PV. One of our favorites is The River Café. A must to dine. The location is great for the beach, restaurants and shopping. The owner was very easy to work with and always communicated quickly. They even provided a cheat sheet for our arrival detailing, cabs, and items we might need. I would recommend the place again and will stay myself again.
I think I've stayed here five times now. After fifteen years of coming to Vallarta twice a year, I've feel like I've found the 'Holy Grail' with Villa Blanca (such a fantastic location) and now, anytime it works with their availability schedule, I choose to stay at the Penthouse. The building is truly distinctive (I've often described it as 'Gaudi-esque') and what makes the Penthouse even more incredible is the beautiful, open-air view.
Villa Blanca is just behind Los Muertos Beach and a VERY short walk to the main restaurants and shops throughout Zona Romantica. Taxicabs are also readily available.
Just got back again and it was great; even had some added updates with the bathrooms and furniture in the bedrooms - very nice. As an added note, the owners and onsite manager are always easy to deal with and helpful.
Anyways... this place is an outstanding deal for the price. Your only regret will be if you DON'T stay here
The Villa Blanca Penthouse was our home for the month of October, 2014. The location in "Old Towm" provided walking acess to many beach clubs along Los Muertos beach (Swell was our favorite), a variety of restaurants, and boutique shopping on Basillo Badillo, one of the main streets leading to El Centro. The owner, Sandeep, was professional to work with. He helped us through the deposit/ payment process (Pay Pal), check-in instructions and a list of activities and restaurants.
Upon entering the "open Air" living area I exclaimed with a WOW! We were greeted with a stunning view of the entire Banderas Bay. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking although we dined out most evenings. It was a very hot and humid time of the year. We welcomed the well air conditioned bedrooms at bedtime.
A previous reviewer commented on the number of steps and lack of an elevator. Our group ranged in age from 40-75, all in good health. We used the stairs as daily exercise to justify the ice cream we had nightly. We appreciated the concenience of the washer/dryer.
The staff was outstanding: welcoming and helpful in every way. Jose, Angelina, Chuey, Oswaldo and the night gardener all added their unique touches to make for a clean and well cared for environment.
Guests need to keep in mind this is a rental unit. The owner and staff do everything to deliver what is advertised in the listing. During the past year, we have traveled to 22 countries staying in many rentals. Villa Blanca is one of the best.
If you want to be immersed in PV and Mexican culture, enjoy a great location, be well cared for and have an award winning view, book at Villa Blanca!
