About Walt and Karen
We have been traveling to PV since 1983 and have seen many changes over the years. Fortunately, PV has manged to hold on to it's charm, especially in the 'Zona Romantica' or 'South Town' area where we still have cobblestone streets. After renting for all those years we finally decided to buy a place. In 2001 when my friend's place came up for sale we bought it, spur of the moment! We have really enjoyed re-decorating the condo and putting together the patio garden. Half of each trip is spent upgrading the place. It has been a pleasure to meet our clients and we have made several friendships over the years. Many of our clients are repeat renters.
Walt and Karen purchased this Condo in 2001
Why Walt and Karen chose Romantic Zone
Puerto Vallarta has a certain charm that we have found nowhere else. The Mexican people are so nice and really work hard to please you. The prices are still way below what you would pay in Hawaii. We love having a place so close to the beach that if we forget something like sunglasses we just run back and get them in 5 minutes, round trip.
What makes this Condo unique
We love to sit on our patio in the morning and have coffee. There is usually a small restaurant open next door and we can smell the bacon cooking. Around 11 am we stroll across the street to the beach. We have a favorite beach hangout during the day that is similar to 'Friends', where everyone knows your name. At night we step out the door and walk down to the beach for the sunset and maybe dinner at the pier restaurant we call 'CCs'. Then we can continue to walk all the way down the boardwalk or 'malecon' to the city center, shopping along the way or stopping for ice cream or an evening cocktail. Artists are out, selling their wares all along the way. At the malecon we can enjoy a free show in the amphitheater. Sometimes we will decide to go to Mismaloya beach for the day in which case we walk 15 minutes to the bus stop and pay our 40 cents to get on a bus. From there we can continue on to the PV zoo or down the road to a little town at the mouth of the river called 'Boca' (mouth) in Spanish. Our daughter spent 5 weeks in the summer of 2011 staying in the condo and walking to the U of Guadalajara extension program for Spanish lessons. Then, she spent most of the 2012 summer there after graduating from high school. Our Mexican friend Felipe, who likes to run marathons, had her up and running (literally) at 6 am every day. We just enjoy being so close to everything but feeling like we aren't. There are only 7 units in our building so we feel like we are away from it all but in reality it's all just right outside our door!

Property is very comfortable and convenient. The owners and on-site staff were very helpful. I look forward to staying here again.

Comfortable and convenient
Comfortable, quiet, and conveniently located in the Zona Romantica. (Be sure to try the breakfast restaurant next door).
Close to beach.
Good spot in Zims Romantica
Pleasant Mexican coast experience
We’re very satisfied. Exactly as advertised- and owner was very good at responding to my questions. Perfect location for spending a few days at the beach, and enjoying the nightlife afterwards. Especially appreciated the terrace and the quiet bedrooms😊.
Good neighborhood and great charm. Simple but owners put a lot of effort in to keep the Mexican vibe alive. Good for budget minded renters.
Water park on north side of town. You would need to take the bus or a taxi to get there. Canopy zip line ride (in harness on a cable over the river ) up in the jungle. There is a free shuttle within walking distance. Car rental a few doors down. Buses to all areas can be caught within easy walking distance.
