My 50th B-day escape

  • 5 of 5
Yes my last linute decision for a getaway was a good one. With only limited time to prepare and find a place to stay I decided to try the Condo experience and selected the sonderful La Dolce Vita. The owner was the absolute best in her customer care. She totally made me feel at ease with my first on-line rental. The information package she provided was a great reference for some of the things to do and see. The Condo was fabulous, with absolutely everything you could possibly need available to you. Sitting on the balcony, with cocktail in hand, watching the sunset over the Bay is the ultimate in relaxation. Canopy Zip Lining, now there is how I got my excitement. Having been to PV several times over the years I have decided that this is the way to holiday. Thank you for allowing me to share this home and I have been passing it on to everyone I know already.
Until next time, Cheers.

Beautiful Place with breath taken views!

  • of 5
We had a fabulous time staying at this beautiful place! It is very confortable and everything works well! The master room has an amazing view to the ocean. The living room and kitchen are very spacious and the unit has everything you can possibly need. The owner is such nice and professional person. I felt great knowing that I had met the person who owns it. To have private access to the pool (which is very nice) and a private exit/entrance to the beach it is perfect. The unit has a big plasma tv, sound system and internet. To sit outside on the balcony and admire the beautiful sunsets was priceless.

My only advise to someone who travels to downtown quite often, it gets a little price as each way is about $8 dollars. I stayed there for a week and I probably spent $120 on taxi cabs. Including the airport fee. The water at the place is so beautiful and clear, better than the beaches at downtown.

The security and concierge at the place are very nice and helpful.

I would definitely go back to this place and totally recommended to anyone who wants to truly enjoy puerto vallarta.

An Amazing Week!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent an amazing week at Diane's beautiful condo to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Everything was as advertised and more. A breathtaking view of the ocean greeted us as we opened the door to the condo. The condo was immaculate and perfectly appointed with everything you could need. Beach towels, beach gear, a beautiful kitchen (we prepared several meals and enjoyed dining on the spacious balcony overlooking the beach). Air conditioning in every room was another added bonus. Diane thought of everything when preparing this beautiful property for visitors. She was thoughtful enough to provide us with a very detailed "lay of the land" which helped us tremendously since it was our first visit to Puerto Vallarta. We also loved the fact that the beach was so private and relaxing. It was as if we had it all to ourselves! The staff was very friendly and eager to answer any questions we had. Bus service stops right in front of the condo for a quick, inexpensive 10 minute ride into town. Taxis were also stationed nearby. We loved the fact that we were far enough away from town to really enjoy the serenity of Playa Punta Negra and still only a quick bus or taxi ride to town to enjoy all of the shops, galleries and restaurants. I would highly recommend Diane's condo to anyone wanting beachfront luxury and privacy. We'll be back! Thank you for your wonderful hospitality Diane!

La Dolce Vita, Home away from Home!

  • 5 of 5
Our family completely enjoyed being in the lovely La Dolce Vita. With all the amenities of home, we were set for our week's stay in Puerto Vallarta. The amazing owner was there the week prior and stocked our fridge with the essentials. A bottle of wine greeted us, as did lots of great information on things to do and see while in Puerto Vallarta. I loved the location of the condominium, as it's out of the hustle and bustle of town, with a private beach just outside the door. Our family spent many wonderful hours snorkeling around the outcroppings of rocks, seeing beautiful fish, octopus, and lobster. The owner provided boogie boards; we all had fun taking on the waves. We had an amazing time watching the daily display of bait fish schooling and the subsequent feeding of jack fish, all from our balcony. We barbequed on the balcony and enjoyed coffee every morning there. The condo was very comfortable, clean and perfect for our family. The property is secure and clean, and the staff so very helpful and kind. We had a lot of fun visiting neighboring Mismaloya, and zip lining in the mountains with Canopies Los Veronas, We also took a water taxi from the little village of Boca de Tomatlan (a short bus ride south) to Yelapa and spent the day on the beach and in the water. It's a beautiful boat ride and worth the trip. Given the fact we had a full kitchen, we ate in quite a lot, but when we did go out we had a couple wonderful meals at Lindo Mar which is about ten minutes north. Walking from the condo is not recommended as the roads are narrow, but we did it a couple of times. Public transit is a great way to go and a bus picks up on the other side of the street from the condo every 15 minutes or so and costs 7.50 pesos per person. We learned a lot about the transit system and took a fun adventure to the town of Bucerias. It was fun but there are a ton of vendors. One thing to note is you can catch a public transit van (white) from Bucerias to Puerto Vallarta which is much more comfortable and cost about 40 pesos per person...worth it. Do your homework before coming to the area so you can plan out your vacation. The owners also have a ton of great information in the condo. Our time in Puerto Vallarta was so much fun! If you are looking for a low-key, relaxing place to stay, look no further than La Dolce Vita. It's truly a wonderful place to stay, you won't be disappointed!

Fabulous condo

  • 5 of 5
We recently had the total pleasure to stay at La Dulce Vida during the month of December. What a beautiful experience. So many thoughtful details. From the welcome greeting of a bottle of wine to the basic supplies to make coffee the first day, everything represents an owner who really cares about the happiness of their guests. High quality linens, extremely comfortable beds, lots of beach supplies and an impeccably clean condo made for a wonderful home while on vacation.

I couldn't have asked for more. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could need to prepare any meal. We managed to prepare a full Christmas dinner , with all the trimmings. Wonderful. The location is ideal if you love the ocean, privacy and easy access to town. We went in every other day to the markets, and took a taxi home for 6.00. There are buses every 15 minutes and fun to ride. The view of all the New Years fireworks was spectacular. You can see all the way from Mismaloyan to Bucerias. It was amazing.

We all loved staying there. It was easy to contact Diane and she always responded promptly. The maid service is excellent and she became like family to us. I can't recommend this rental highly enough, and I hope we get to stay there again soon.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review, I believe it helps people in making their decisions to read what previous guests have discovered about our location and fabulous beach, it is a part of paradise to be far enough from town to have total peace, and yet a short ride of 7 minutes to Old Town, or as is commonly known as the "romantic Zone".
I will look forward to your next visit.
Thank you.
