About the property

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

Las Estrellas, is a privately-owned Penthouse condominium located in a small, gated boutique building with only 16 units. This modern building, Estrellita del Mar, includes a large heated swimming pool and garden area with great ocean views and is located in the upscale neighborhood of Amapas, just above Los Muertos Beach and Old Downtown South.

This Penthouse has approximately 1,800 square feet of living space including a large terrace with panoramic 180-degree ocean views. (Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen and Terrace ALL with Ocean Views.) Free high-speed wifi inside the Penthouse, (your own, private connection) and free wifi at the pool.

The terrace features a unique design, half is covered for shade, the other half open for tanning. The terrace is quite large, nearly 400 square feet and 30 feet long.

A professional driving service is sent to meet you at the airport upon your arrival and bring you directly to the penthouse, at no extra charge.

Everything you could possibly need is included: beach towels, large bath sheets for the bathrooms, a fully stocked, remodeled kitchen.

A quick walk down the stairs places, (approximately 7-10 minutes) places you in the heart of Vallarta with the best restaurants, shopping and night life that Puerto Vallarta has to offer. Taxi rates within this area are $3 to $4 US dollars, including from the beach back to Las Estrellas. Due to its unique location, Las Estrellas is close enough to walk to everywhere you want to go, yet just far enough from the traffic and noise to provide the quiet tranquility you desire. Twice weekly Housekeeping Service is Included. The building does have an elevator from the pool area to the top floor.

While the building, Estrellita del Mar is not adults only, it does tend to be a fairly quiet environment, so if you're looking for a place to party, this probably isn't your best choice. Minimum age requirement is 30 years of age or older, though I do make exceptions depending on the circumstances.

About Bob Mooney

Las Estrellas is very special to me as I hope it will be to you. This is my home for part of the year and I have tried to make it as comfortable as possible. It is a very eclectic mix of styles including traditional Mexican, Italian and Mediterranean. It is certainly not of the ordinary! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do and fall in love with Puerto Vallarta as I have.

Bob's place is unbeatable. Top of the line, all the amenities you could possibly need and the view is stunning. We made it a point to be back every night by 8:30 to watch the sunset. We had no issues during our stay, but had someone we could call 24/7 that would come right away if we did. The walk down to the beach/town is an easy walk down 2 sets of steps and brings you out right behind the beach. We took a cab back each time and it was 50 pesos- well worth the money. I cannot say enough good things about Bob's place and the communication he had with us to make sure everything was going fine. Did not feel the least bit unsafe and the cab from the airport was a great touch. We will definitely be back to experience this home and the beautiful city.

A very special place!

  • 5 of 5

Estrellitas del Mar was outstanding in every way. The home is spacious and comfortable with every amenity you can possibly think of, including a cook's kitchen, and then there's the panoramic view! There's no better place to enjoy an evening cocktail and watch the sunset. The location is accessible to all the best restaurants with a short walk to the beach. The bus picks up right out the back door if you want to venture out up the coast. As an aside, I highly recommend spending a morning at the botanical garden. The condo unit itself is well maintained and the support staff are very helpful. The taxi waiting at the airport is a nice touch! We have stayed here twice and we will most certainly return. Thanks Bob for sharing your beautiful home!

Amazing place!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the penthouse and its location. It's very private and quiet. Conciere and cleaning services are very nice and we can't wait to come back. The stairs to/from downtown are steep but not bad a all and it feels good to walk around to see local living. We also had a rental car (nicely arranged by National with the help of Angel from the conciere office) so the designated parking was great. The penthouse is beautifully decorated and very spacious. The photos on vrbo don't even make it a justice. The view from outside the patio are some of the best in the entire town. We definitely recommend this unit to everyone. Thank you Bob for checking on us and for great communication from the momment we booked it to the last day.

Outstanding in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Estrellitas del Mar could not have been more pleasant, beginning with our airport pick-up that even included a phone call from Bob to be sure all was OK. A concierge met us at the apartment upon our arrival and showed us where to find everything. There were instructions and good advice all along, including an arrival handout Bob emailed in advance with advice for getting around, where to eat and shop, etc. The apartment itself was perfect, starting with a panoramic view of the bay and Los Muertos Beach. We even saw dolphins coming in to feed one early morning. The apartment is equipped with everything necessary for cooking although we opted to eat out most meals except breakfast. The local food is excellent, and we did not have a bad meal in Puerto Vallarta. (Our favorites included Olla, Anejo Limon and Joe Jack's). We are walkers and enjoyed walking to the beach and into town and back, but the walk back up is quite steep (258 stairs). However, for those for whom it is too strenuous, there are cheap taxis everywhere. I cannot recommend this condo highly enough! Bob's hospitality and attention to detail are unmatched. I have stayed in VRBO properties all over the world, and this was my favorite so far! Thanks for everything, Bob!

Another amazing stay at Penthouse Las Estrellas

  • 5 of 5

Our fourth time here. The penthouse is comfortable for one or four. Beautifully furnished reflecting old Mexico and has all of the creature comforts. Huge deck overlooking the bay is the place to be for the morning coffee and evening cocktails or dinner. Enjoy all that Puerto Vallarta has to offer within a short walk to town. Or if you prefer you can generally find a taxi right outside the door for 50 pesos into town. Given the amazing meals we have down here the walking is refreshing. Great pool area just a short elevator ride downstairs and it's heated. Looking forward to a return visit already.
