About the property

One Bedroom TWO bath! Full ocean news! Los Arcos to Pier! Wonderfully decorated!

This sensational D'Terrace Residence condo is wonderfully appointed with top-notch amenities, central air and incredible vistas including: downtown Puerto Vallarta, mountain, jungle, 180degree ocean views and sunsets.

This contemporary one bedroom and TWO full bathroom condo is perfect for a couple, small family or two couples. New kitchen appliances, large kitchen island with seating for 4 or dine al fresco on the lovely patio.

Life is a beach…

D'Terrace is one block away from the beach. No need for bringing drinks, food, beach chairs, towels or umbrellas down to the water. The beach clubs: Mantamar, Green Chairs, Blue Chairs and Sapphire offer all these amenities for a fee. While at the beach, be prepared for the vendors hocking their wares. Don’t be afraid to say, “No Gracias…” unless interested. Haggling is expected. Parasailing, jet skiing and paddleboard renting are all available. A walk to the pier and inquiring about snorkeling, diving or deep-sea fishing is a possibility. Excursion to Yelapa???

Tired of staying at the Blue Chairs Hotel, Vallarta Shores or the Tropicana?

D'Terrace is a quiet location. No noisy corners or bus noise to deal with here. Located on a peaceful dead end street across from the Tropicana Hotel, this location is close to shopping and restaurants. Your dining options are endless including Italian, Mexican, Seafood and Continental cuisines. In addition, there are many casual sandwich shops, taco stands, mini-markets and coffee shops just a short distance away. Enjoy meals sitting on the sandy beach or, cook at home in a fully stocked kitchen including a gas BBQ. Other conveniences include nearby pharmacies and laundry services all within a 1-2 blocks (although a stackable washer/dryer is in the unit).

Don't like the beach?

Take a walk along the iconic Malecon. This is Puerto Vallarta's most popular attraction for tourists and locals. Discover the coffee shops where meeting friends old and new are a simple pleasure. Stroll Basilio Badillo aka 'Restaurant Row' and discover a new flavor or quench your thirst. There is plenty of nightly entertainment at the Palm and Act ll Theaters from jazz singers to drag shows, there’s something for everyone.

Discover Guadalajara, the capital of the state of Jalisco via the deluxe bus in 4 hours. While there, visit world-class restaurants, museums, the craft shops and art galleries of neighboring Tlaquepaque or Tonala.

With so many sites in Puerto Vallarta, it’s easy to walk the cobblestone streets and get lost in Gringo Gulch. Try the most amazing Sunday brunch at Hacienda San Angel (advanced reservations are a must). There is a guided house tour on Tuesdays and Wednesdays of hillside homes. If you want something a little different, take a water taxi to Ocean Grill for lunch (reservations are required and made on line). There are plenty of hiking trails that can take you to secluded beaches just south of Los Muertos Beach. The River Cuale has wonderful picnic areas and Zip Lines for the brave of heart. The sky is the limit.

Beach? Who has time for the beach?

Go to the rooftop and enjoy the bar service. While ordering your favorite libation, check out the infinity pool, two Jacuzzis and fire-pit. You can work out in the gym using all new equipment including: treadmills, Elliptical, stationary bike, universal and free weights. You can plant yourself on a chaise lounge and sunbathe while taking in the sensational views of the surrounding romantic zone, Banderas Bay and jungle.

Or just relax in the beautifully appointed condo with a good book or catch up on your favorite Netflix or Amazon shows, or perhaps listen to music and while the day away. Black out shades in the master bedroom allow for that needed siesta. Try a new Mexican recipe or whip up a pitcher of Margaritas in the fully appointed kitchen.

Absolutely stunning and hospitable condo!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I had an absolutely magnificent time and will definitely be staying there again in the future. The house was large and modern with gorgeous view of the beach and fully stocked bathroom and some odds and ends kitchen stuff but fully stocked kitchenware. The building itself was beautiful ivy and modern clean design. Absolutely my new favorite spot!.

Looking for Zona Romantica with dead on views of the ocean and beach close?

This location offers the TOP NOTCH LOCATION in the Zona Romantica.

Quick walk to bars, restaurants, beach clubs, shops and coffee.

Located just across Calle Amapas from the Tropicana Hotel at the end of a small dead-end street is D'Terrace.

No bus noise. No street traffic. No sounds to disturb your visit other than the sounds of the waves.

Western exposure offers full ocean views from Los Arcos to the Pier.

Wanting to try something new? Used to staying at the Blue Chairs, Vallarta Shores or the Tropicana Hotel?

This ALL NEW condo with a great open floor plan and open kitchen to the view of the Pacific.

The bedroom has a king size bed with plenty of storage and black out shades. An en-suite bath with a sexy shower including shower sprays and a private toilet area with operable window complete the space.

Extra sleeping in the custom 'ratcheted furniture' which lays flat in the living room makes your guests extra comfortable.

You may never leave the building! The sensational roof-top view, gym, pool and jacuzzis, will keep anyone active...or do nothing at all but admire the jaw-dropping vistas of ocean, city and jungle...the rooftop will dazzle the most difficult to please.

The nightly fireworks will light up the night from various locations and often from the Blue Chairs and Tropicana Hotels...make it's viewing stunning.
