About the property
- Condo500 sqft
- Half Baths0
- Minimum Stay1 - 2 nights
A fabulous romantic destination, featuring breathtaking views.
Perfectly perched on the 12th floor of the desirable Girasol Sur Condominium Complex. Snorkel the rocks just steps away from the complex where you will find beautiful exotic fish and graceful Bat Rays. Sip a cocktail on the Veranda as dolphins show off their moves and turtles come up to say hello.
Nestled between two white sandy beaches that feature breathtaking sunsets and soft white sand. Lively Old Town is only a 15 minute ride away where a delicious margarita awaits you or hang out at the onsite restaurant and snag 2 for 1 drinks every night from 6-7 PM. Just a note, the restaurant will be closed until May 5,2018.
Now onto the good stuff, your new humble abode. The condo features original Spanish tile throughout that adds to the Mexican character of the property and helps keep the space cool throughout the day. The kitchen features a 3/4 size refrigerator, microwave, electric stove top, toaster oven and dine in kitchen table. Enjoy a hot shower or relaxing bubble bath and sleep the night away in the very comfortable Mexican King pillow top bed. The sunsets are the highlight of this special space so sit back and take it all in, welcome to our little slice of paradise!
If you are interested in renting a car, I use Mex Car Rentals. Ask for Poncho, tell him your renting from Polly in Mismaloya and he will give you a discount. There is free onsite parking at the condo. Cabs are reasonable and most of the drivers speak English. The bus also stops right in front of the complex. If you use google maps to navigate your destination will be Condominios Girasol Sur "Not the address."
Other Things to Note
The restaurant onsite is getting new management and will be closed from April 8 2018 to May 1 2018. Sorry for this inconvenience .
We belong to the Laundry Club, so pack lightly and get those threads washed.
Regarding security, safety always comes first. Gate access to and from the beach are for Residents and Guests only. Gates will be locked during the evening.
TV features English speaking channels and cable so you'll never miss a game! Throw in your HDMI cable and stream from your device.
Cleaning fee. In an effort to keep the cleaning fee a separate charge I ask all of my guests to agree to paying 370 pesos 20 US to the front desk 24 hrs before check out. This ensures the unit is cleaned and laundered for my next guests. Thank you in advance.

Polly Piette purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Polly Piette chose Mismaloya
We stumbled upon Girasol Sur several years ago and have been returning to this complex ever since. The staff, the location,the beaches, the views, and most of all authentic accommodation's are one of the best in Banderas Bay.
What makes this Condo unique
New efficient air conditioning, king bed, bedding, dishes, microwave and decor. The uniqueness of this place is in the views and the marine life that awaits you just outside your studio. Enjoy the beauty of a spectacular sunset or watching the birds dive from the roof top and play each morning. Being on the 12th floor its amazing how much sea life you can capture all day long.

Beautiful condo with amazing view!
Our week at the "Slice of Paradise" condo was incredible. The condo was beautifully decorated, fully equipped and very clean. The view from the 12th floor balcony was breathtaking. Our first morning we saw a mother humpback whale with her baby swim by the condo. Amazing! We also saw giant rays go by and other whales. Polly was wonderful to rent from and left great information. Thank you so much, Polly, for sharing your tropical home. We highly recommend this condo.
Thank you Cheryl for the wonderful review. I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay and hope that you will return to" A Slice of Paradise" real soon. Cheers Polly
One of the best locations/beaches in PV
Girasol was far enough away from the busyness of Old Town yet a quick taxi or bus ride was only 15 minutes away. Bus stops right in front. It is an older property but well maintained and charming. Beautiful pool (chilly water), right in the center of 2 beaches, great place for snorkling, turquoise clear ocean (warmer than the pool;) We noticed that other boats came in to anchor near these beaches. The open air Restaurant on site prepares good food (best guac!) and is reasonably priced with happy hour everyday. Bring cash, they don't take cards. The view from there is beautiful.
There is poolside service, which we liked. The pool deck doesnt get any morning sun but you can go to the beaches for that. The rules say no saving loungers until 9 am but we learned that no one follows that rule.
The room itself had the BEST views. Being on the 12th floor put you above any loud noise from the neighboring property. There was construction going on to the south of us.
The room is stocked with most everything we needed (no music devices though) Lots of towels, extra toiletries, beach umbrella, snorkling gear. The store downstairs is open til 8 pm if you need a beer/wine run or last minute grocery. (cash only)
Comfortable bed and quaint room but the bathroom plumbing/fixtures might need an upgrade. We noticed a mildew smell coming from under the vanity. No hot water but we didn't need it. Just needs some TLC. Its the only reason we're giving a 4. The maids should mop under the bed as they do the floors.
The staff at Girasol and restaurant (thanks, Alex!) were so helpful, friendly and professional. Carlos hooked us up with a zip line outing with El Eden (very professional) and a dinner cruise on the Pirate ship. Very entertaining, great food but beware, it is a party ship. Not quiet and peaceful cruise if thats what youre looking for.
Girasol also has self laundry available. You sign up for a specific time, so dont be late. The washer takes a full hour to complete. 2 washers for the whole complex.
Thanks Polly for sharing your slice of paradise. We hope to return to this very location.
Jorge and Judy
Jorge an Judy, Thank you for your review. I would like to address some of your comments and concerns. As far as the pool rules, I would hope that all of my guests would follow all rules set by administration even if others don't. I will look into the mildew smell coming from the bathroom and there is hot water in there but only warm in the kitchen. As far as the laundry. Yes there are two washers and two dryers for each assigned time slot which is 3 hours. You should be able to run 4 loads in that time. It is a perk to have the laundry service as I pay for my guests to have access to it. I will contact the maids about cleaning under the bed I have not had any one mention it before. It sounds like all in all your stay was enjoyable. Thank you for your suggestions.
This was our second visit. The location is amazing with two great beaches and a snorkeling area right in front. The view is perfect. City views to the north and Los Arcos to the south. Hope to be back next fall!
Thank you Polly!

The property is well kept. The staff are kind and helpful. The sunsets are breathtaking.
Hi Barbara, thank you for your review. I'm so glad you liked the place. You were wonderful to communicate with and I would invite you back any time
Our stay in October was great! The view is outstanding with sunsets to the south and city lights (PV) to the north.
The Condo was very nice and up to date and well cared for!
The staff at the complex and the restaurant were all very nice, helpful and could speak english! They were great people!
The beach area has the best of both worlds........Sandy beach and a rocky area for snorkeling.
If your prior visits to PV have only been in the city area.......You are in for a treat! This is so much better than in "Town".
Quiet, Jungle Like, Clean and with Great Water! (ocean) Polly is so great to deal with. Quick response time and answer all questions.
We hope to come back soon!
One tip......If you want to go to Los Arcos.........Don't go into town and get on a tour boat. Get on a five minute bus ride further south to
Mismaloya and rent a private boat! And also check out the beaches and restaurants further south towards Yelapa. (by boat)
Great Times for a great price!

Beautiful condo with breathtaking views! Wished we could have stayed longer!
We loved our week long stay at Polly's condo just south of Puerto Vallarta! Slept well with the comfortable bed and then awoke to the most gorgeous ocean view I've ever seen. Loved being on the 12th floor so we could see for miles and miles! Would love to come back during whale watching season. The restaurant on property served delicious seafood and was surprisingly inexpensive. We enjoyed 2 for 1 drinks at happy hour and delicious dinners by the ocean every evening. A/C worked great and staff on site were very friendly. My only gripe was the outdated gym equipment and treadmill with the sign that said "no jogging or running". But minor gripe, loved the place and can't wait to come back!
You can zip line through the dense forest, take a stroll through the botanical gardens "we highly recommend" or check out the zoo where you can feed the animals.
