“A Jewel in Old Town”
Reviewed 27 March 2016 for a stay in January 2016

people found this review helpful

This was my 2nd visit to Puerto Vallarta and I was fortunate enough to decide on this place after extensive research. It was without a doubt a terrific vacation rental experience - especially since this was my first time renting via the Internet.
You get the neighborhood feeling but you are very close to shopping, restaurants, local attractions and anything in-between. The place is tastefully and lovingly decorated and has everything you could possibly need or want. We were on the 3rd floor (2 BR) and one of the bedrooms had a tiny balcony - the layout is VERY spacious and I loved how the sun wakes you in the AM with the birds singing - not to mention having a staring contest with the cat on the roof across. Randy is an amazing host - we had a little dilemma with the kitchen sink - one phone call and a short while later the plumber was here to fix it. I couldn't get service that quick in Chicago! It pays to have the owner live on the premises. The roof top is a relaxing oasis for lounging, taking a dip in the pool or watching a spectacular sunset over PV with a glass of wine in the evening. Thinking of returning in 2017 - thank you Randy for making this a wonderful experience!

“Central Location, Beautifully Appointed, Can't Miss Here!”
Reviewed 25 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

people found this review helpful

This unit exceeded our expectations on every level, very well appointed, comfortable, high end (for Mexico) appliances, filtered water throughout, accommodating host, VERY comfortable bed/linens, neighborhood was central to all yet out of the fray. Rooftop area was great for relaxation as well as having some local friends over for dinner.

Randy the host was very intuitive and while we would consider ourselves to be a hands off type of low maintenance occupant I get the feeling he could deal with the opposite type of guest with equal aplomb.

We enjoy immersing ourselves in the local culture and if you feel the same take a trip two blocks over and three up to the Emilio Zapata Municipal Market if not just for the local produce en mass but to eat at what we referred to as the "inner sanctum" three "restaurants" in the core of the market that served the best breakfast and lunch of our stay. Can you say Machaca con huevos with rice, beans, salad, all the hot thick corn tortillas you can muster with table top options of three types of salsa, diced onions, cilantro, even fresh mint for your drink all covered in clean presentations. All this for 45 PESOS! HUH?? Our tips exceeded the cost of the meals.

This property is three total units one per floor with the owner on the fourth and is secure and quiet inside, your on the 200 so there is a bit of traffic but that did not bother us nor hinder this stellar review. Bugs were non existent a rarity in Mexico, honestly I have no cons.

“Classy Furnishings and Plenty of Room”
Reviewed 9 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We were attending my daughter's wedding in Guadalajara and a family group of six of us (including the newly married couple) wanted a place to stay for 3 nights in Puerto Vallarta. My daughter found this unit on VBRO. It sleeps four, but we were also able to get a studio in the same building for my other two daughters.

There are five condos in the building, all accessed through the bottom door and up a flight of stairs. Security is excellent.

The condo has first-class construction and is clean and well-maintained. We were impressed with the high ceilings, quality of the kitchen and bathroom fixtures, the countertops and appliances. During our stay there was no hot water, which was okay since a tepid shower felt just right in the heat.

It was the hot season in late June and the air conditioning in the master suite did not work the first night, but the problem was fixed after we contacted the onsite manager. The air conditioning is only for the bedrooms, so it was always an interesting experience to leave the cool of those rooms and walk into the blast of heat in the hallways and other places.

A small rooftop pool was a favourite for an evening dip; the view of the city a relaxing sight at the end of a day of walking the Malecon and sightseeing.

We were grateful to have such a comfortable stay in a good location in Puerto Vallarta.

My family and I made our first trip to Puerto Vallarta and stayed in Randy's wonderful place and absolutely fell in love! We are already planning coming back next summer! There was a little problem with the AC and he fixed it immediately. Very helpful and highly recommended!

“Location, Location, Sunshine!”
Reviewed 27 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

people found this review helpful

We have been vacationing in Puerto Vallarta for several years and have stayed here the last four years in a row. Needless to say, we have not been disappointed. As many have noted, the location is ideal, just steps from all kinds of amenities. For example, on our last trip I was in need of a print shop, a stationary store and shoe repair. All were conveniently located within three blocks! In addition, there are plenty of great restaurants just steps away and the beach is just five blocks west.
The condos are clean, secure and well maintained. Randy seems to come up with some improvements each year. For 2015 he added king size beds and a small safe for each unit.
Enjoy the rooftop splash pool for the ultimate in relaxation and peace of mind!
I've included some pictures below which only begin to capture the beauty of the area.
