About Traci Hanel

We bought this condo in September of 2009 and have thoroughly enjoyed it! We absolutely love PV but we especially love the Marina area. The Bay View Grand is a beautiful resort with an amazing view of the ocean and mountains. We renovated the unit, and we have made many updates, including a new kitchen in 2013. We know that you will love this condo as much as we do!

Traci Hanel purchased this condo in 2010

Really Love Bay View Grand

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year at BVG. Our first in this unit. First We want to say how wonderful it was to deal with the owner who was gracious and helpful. We had a bad experience with a BVG rental a year before that was fraudulent. Traci was great with us. The unit is on the 4th floor near the South end of the complex. The unit is fully equipped. Includes brands new AC that was demonstrated by the property manager but we never used. Weather was perfect, we needed to be under sheets and quilts most nights. Pool and beach are great. A short walk to marina. Bus downtown costs 15 pesos round trip (~$0.75}. A taxi to downtown is only about $6 if the bus is not desired. Staff are friendly and diligent. We will come again!

Awesome Location! AMAZING SUNSET and POOL!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to PV, but our friends had been there many times and stayed at this same place (exact condo) every time! They told us we'd love it too and we did! We look forward to returning with them. The condo is very nice and modern as a renter from the USA would we each had our own bathroom. This condo looks right over the pool and to the ocean for awesome sunset views, from just over the palm tree tops! It is an easy taxi ride to all the great food and bars in town, yet you can come home to piece and quiet at the end of the night. Would definitely recommend this condo for anyone interested in an awesome and safe location!

We loved our stay so much we now want to get a place in Puerto Vallarta!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Where to start this is such a beautiful property. The condo has all the comforts of home with the million dollar view of the ocean. Such a perfect place to wake up and enjoy your coffee before or after your stroll on the beach which is just outside your door. The property is so relaxing and comfortable. You always have a great spot at the pool with the view of the ocean while having access to poolside service or your can bring your drinks and food. You can easily walk to the marina and enjoy several local restaurants or are just a short cab ride downtown. There is so much to do in PV. This condo is the perfect base camp or location just to hold up in and relax. The owner's tips were spot on (massage, best taco spot, restaurants with views & private boat captain).

Owner's Response: This was the first and only time I have kept a guest's deposit due to damage to our condo (master bedroom headboard). We stayed there immediately prior to their arrival so I was totally certain that the damage was due to these guests. As an owner, it is extremely disappointing when someone damages our condo. These things happen, however, and one would hope that the guests would take responsibility for their actions. One TV in the guest bedroom is not working (although he did not notify me about this during his stay, I did not hold him responsible as I did not know if the damage was due to him). There were two other TVs in the condo that worked perfectly. The sofas in the condo were scheduled to be recovered after these guests left. They were last recovered two years ago, but the ocean air is very hard on things. I do hope that anyone reading this review will take into account the very many positive reviews that we have received through the years. We have had many wonderful guests rent our condo through the years and expect to have many more. :-)

great time

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed for a week at Traci's condo at Bayview Grand. We were very impressed with the view, cleanliness of the condo and upkeep of the condo grounds. Our 3 kids loved the massive pool and swimming in the ocean. We had everything we needed in the condo and found it to be very comfortable for our family. We enjoyed walking to the store for groceries and walking to the Marina were there are many excellent restaurants. Traci's recommendations for things to do and places to eat were spot on. Wifi in the condo worked great and was consistent. The condo owners were excellent to work with!

  • 4 of 5

The staff was nice and responsive to any needs we had. The air moves through the place nicely. It got pretty hot a couple of times but we never turned on the a/c. Have travelled some but never to PV. Really pleasantly surprised about the gorgeous mountains and beautiful surroundings. We will be back.
