Incredible views, great location

  • 4 of 5

Overall, this is a beautiful condo. The views are the best imaginable. The condo itself is spacious, but it is advertised as a four bedroom and it really only has three real bedrooms and one small closet like space which perhaps a young child could use. The air conditioner worked well and is an absolute necessity. Having a washer and dryer was great as well. The pools are beautiful and well maintained. The restaurant on site was not great, but chicken quesadillas and guacamole by the pool were fine and hit the spot. Don't try the ceviche at the GV restaurant. Also, had a miscommunication with the rental manager and I brought a $500 cashier's check from Bank of America for the security deposit. Apparently Mexican banks don't recognize those, so don't bring one! Fairly minor thing but stressful when you are on vacation. Overall, though, it was a great place to stay and centrally located.

Great condo beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this beautiful Puerto Vallarta condo was great. The condo is huge and beautifully decorated. We were all in love with the view. Everyone in the hotel was nice and very helpful. All of the restrooms worked and we did not find anything wrong with the house. I would recommend this house 100%

Lovely apartment, fabulous views, but....

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is lovely: very spacious, with a fabulous view of the ocean, mountains and PV. Booking on VRBO was very easy. The owner has a property manager, Karine, who organizes the contract, check in, check out etc. She was very nice and helpful. There were a couple of areas where we had problems but she resolved these quickly... the apartment wasn't fully clean when we arrived - the toilet in one of the bathrooms had a previous user's 'gift' on the outside of the bowl. So gross. I informed Karine and she sent a cleaning lady the next day, but of course we would have much preferred to have the apartment clean when we arrived. The shower in that same bathroom didn't work properly either. It either needs fixing, or there is heavy limescale build up. As there were two other working showers, it wasn't a huge deal, and we just didn't use it. Karine was unable to meet us at the agreed check out time as she was checking in other guests elsewhere. Not a problem, but we were waiting for her before leaving for the airport, and we only found out after I emailed her to find out where she was. She was therefore unable to return our cash security deposit to us (don't forget to bring cash with you for this as it is due on arrival). She returned our deposit by Paypal after we were back home, but forgot to account for the Paypal fee.

The pool area is gorgeous, two infinity pools and two other pools. The largest pool is cooler and I could swim laps (always a plus). The other pools were quite warm, and there are hot tubs too. There were plenty of pool chairs, but as it got closer to Xmas, there weren't enough for everyone and the Grand Venetian employees who patrol were VERY strict on not allowing you to move any furniture. I was berated for sliding my chair back a foot so that I could be in the shade of the umbrella! They constantly check you are wearing the wristband and log you in and out if you go to the beach. No chair hogging allowed either, which is good. They will remove your items if the chairs are unused for over an hour (or longer, depending on when they realize!). This is fair as it's so busy. As long as there is one person in your group there, your chairs are safe. If you are down by 9am you'll find chairs!

The small restaurant is good, and they will serve you poolside (but not IN the pool - strict rules about that too!).

The location is good with a bus stop next door and across the street, so easy to get to PV/supermarkets.

Great condo option in PV

  • 5 of 5

Usually we stay closer to the Marina, but this time we decided to try something different. We loved this condo. The location was great (in between town and the Marina) and taxis came and went all day and night. There were two adults and 7 older teenagers in our group and we fit well. The fourth bedroom is very tiny and warm so don't count on it for more than one person, and that person is definitely getting the short end of the stick. :) There is a blow up mattress that one of our poor teens had to sleep on. But, we were in beautiful PV, so oh well! The development is beautiful and very large. The pools are great. Concierge was very helpful and arranged a trip to Yelapa for us - I highly recommend it. If this is your first time to PV some of our tips would be: grab a taxi and head to the Marina or town. Restaurants we love: anything at the Marina, Pepe's, Pipi's, Coexist Cafe (amazing), and La Dolce Vita. Take a taxi to Walmart and you can stock your kitchen. It's really close. We've never had any problems traveling all around PV safely in taxis. We've taken the bus on occasion too which is an easy way to get around.

The only downside of this condo was the plumbing: the master bedroom shower never got really warm and the toilets didn't flush well. I'm sure we could have talked to someone and gotten it fixed, but honestly we just didn't really care :)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your high recommendations and for choosing our condo for your vacation in Vallarta, I.m glad to say that over the years we have had many repeat long-term renters as well. Our property normally rents for at least 20% below other comparable condos in the area. We make a great effort to give the best service possible to our guests for them to have a FUN and memorable vacation, we have a local property Mgr. that will attend to all your needs he is only a phone call away. The condo is located in tower 2000 on the 18th floor with spectacular views all around with a private jacuzzi on the balcony and ocean front beside four infinity pools for the whole family to enjoy. We are centrally located only 15 minutes from the Airport as well as downtown the boardwalk called EL MALECON. Shopping and restuarants many within walking distance or a short Taxi ride.

Stay of a Lifetime!!! Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

was absolutely amazed by my entire experience staying at John Masso's luxury residence in Puerto Vallarta. The 3000 SF space was more than enough room for the 5 of us. The 360 degree view with balconies off each room was amazing! I saw dolphins from the balcony while eating breakfast and drinking my coffee OMG!

I walked the beach every morning and got an awesome tan by the infiniti pools. The mall and marina are a short walk away and we did rent a car. The Free underground parking with gated security was a plus for me too. I didn't come for the scuba diving or parasailing or the jet skis...but they found me. All great deals under $100.

The concierge service was very helpful with restaurant ideas within walking distance and a taxi from the Malecon boardwalk or old town was 60 pesos (under $4 one way). I found Vallarta very safe, prices were very reasonable, the food here is excellent!

I cannot thank you John for making my family's vacation so memorable. You really made it special with all of your help to set us up for the perfect getaway. We stayed 9 days at an investment less than we would have spent on a single hotel room! We couldn't beat the price for 5 people. And then we walked into a professionally decorated fully furnished luxury home that we later found out was valued in the high luxury home price range! Again, I am so impressed.

We are rebooking right away for the fall. John is an amazing man. I would recommend him as an owner to rent from to everyone I know! And, as soon as we get back to Texas and Oklahoma we will!

So, if y'all are looking for the trip of your lifetime, this is the place to stay in PV!

Oh shoot! Please don't tell anyone to stay here, I'd really like to keep it all for myself! I wish I could I definitely would. I envie the snowbirds that stay here a month at a time! Well, I can only dream...someday!

Best Vacation Rental IHave Ever Stayed In

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property. The views from the balcony are breathtaking. This condo is beautifully decorated and in excellent condition. Enjoyed every moment I was there. Process of renting was easy and very professional. The staff was fantastic from security to the waiters at the pool. I will recommend this property to others, and will definitely rent it again for my next visit the Puerto Vallarta.

Owner's Response: The above review of this property was submitted by a guest who stayed at this condo. The best advertising are the referrals made by our guests. This property is usually booked two months in advance, not only because of previous guest's referrals, but also because we have the lowest rates of similar properties, at least %20 less. We value our guests by giving them great service and the attention they deserve by making their vacation in Vallarta an unforgettable one. We sincerely hope that you will consider booking your next vacation with us. Cheers, JOHN M
