About the Property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Remodeled Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This beautiful two bedroom Condo has lovely ocean views from the living room and master bedroom - you can even hear the waves at night! Spectacular sunsets can be enjoyed from the condo or the roof terrace. The condo features large-scale artwork by renowned Mexican artists. Both bathrooms have been newly remodeled in contemporary styling with leather granite counter-tops, rain-forest shower, optional mood lighting and seating areas in both showers.
The Condo complex is three stories high (our unit is on the second floor) and only has six Condos in it. There is an on-site caretaker who also acts as security. There is inclusive maid-service on Saturday's.
The heated pool has been fully refurbished and the terrace itself has just been completely re-tiled and has new patio furniture and chaises. There is also a "palapa" for shade from the sun and evening gatherings.
With private balconies off each bedroom through french doors, the Condo has a wonderful sense of fresh air. We usually leave the windows open day and night.

The floors are tiled in typical Spanish style but the living room furniture is new and very comfortable.
Cobbled streets outside the complex lead down to the Malecon (five minutes) and Downtown with all its wonderful galleries, restaurants and nightlife.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I am originally from England, but now live in Los Angeles. I am Director of Starline Tours of Hollywood - so tourism is my job. I love to travel and see the world.

Why the Owner Chose Centro, Puerto Vallarta, Jal., Mexico:
We bought the property in the Old Downtown because we wanted the authentic feel of Puerto Vallarta with the cobbled streets and red tiled roofs. The old Downtown has most of the great art galleries, many of the great restaurants - "Cafe Des Artistes" is just a 5 minute walk from the condo. The Malecon (the seafront promenade) is here - just 8 minutes walk from the condo, where you can stroll along in the evening and watch the world go by. The buildings in the area all have an authentic Mexican feel, rather than the modern sterile blocks that are being built in Nuevo Vallarta and some other parts of the city - which just feel like Hiltons anywhere in the world. In this part of town, we feel like we are in another culture - it feels very mediterranean - Portugal, Spain or Italy. We love the fact that here the rainforest meets the sea. The sunsets are spectacular. Overall, there is always lots to do in this part of town - it is a truly cosmopolitan city with something for everyone.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The condo building only has 6 condos, so it feels more like a large Spanish house divided up, rather than a condo building. Often we are the only people by the pool. We love having an onsite caretaker who looks after any problems we might have while staying in Puerto Vallarta. The condo itself is about 5 blocks back from the Malecon, up the hill so we get views out over the bay from our Living Room and Bedroom. There is also a breeze that is constantly coming through the condo - so keeping things cool - something that does not happen lower down by the water. The condo has Spanish tile floors and textured walls - so you really feel you are in Mexico. Since we are back from the Malecon, the area is quieter, and since we are on a dead-end street, there are no cars just passing by. We recently did a major remodel which included totally gutting and updating both of the bathrooms, buying new furniture and beds, purchasing new kitchen appliances and washer & drier. Since we bought this place primarily for ourselves, we like to keep the place looking as good as possible so we can just relax and have fun when we are there.
