"We booked Steffany's condo because it looked like it was the closest to a sandy beach at a very reasonable price. Boy, did this place deliver! When the sun shines directly on the waves, you can see straight to the sandy bottom. The see-through emerald waves brought tears to my eyes, it was that beautiful! There is a rocky outcrop by the beach that's a haven for tropical fish. We spent hours snorkeling and filming the fish that kept on about their business as if we weren't there. The rest of the beach is sandy, with a slight drop off that causes the waves to break close to shore only, so we could float and bob to our hearts content! This beach is semi-private, due to the distance from town and because the public entrances are a little far off. As for the condo itself, it's true to the photos, with beautiful natural stone tiling throughout. The water pressure was awesome, with never ending hot water, very important to wash off the salt and sand of a typical beach outing. We enjoyed the huge patio, drinking coffee there in the morning, or wine in the evening. It met all our needs and then some. Be warned, you should plan a thorough grocery shopping outing by taxi (about 200 pesos each way) as there are no stores within walking distance. You can take the bus for 8 pesos to the nearest Oxxo convenience store at Conchas Chinas for basic stuff, the orange and white bus line is the only one you need, and the stop is right in front of the condos. The building staff are very helpful and polite, quick to provide help with their cart to unload groceries and deliver to your door. They also keep the building safe, keeping gates locked, areas constantly monitored, with nothing that would disturb any of the guests. Doris was our first contact, and she was helpful, kind, polite and overall wonderful!
No doubt, this has been our favorite vacation stay, and that has been mostly due to this rental. Thank you, Steffany, for this opportunity to have truly lived the Puerto Vallarta experience in comfort, beauty and style!"
