The studio condo is located on the ground floor of the Casa Corazon Hotel and B&B; building at Amapas 326. Location, location, location!! Walking along the beach, we are about 1/4 mile south of the municipal pier in the Zona Romantica section of Old Town Vallarta. Entry is from Amapas into the office which is on floor 8 and then down the elevator to the 4th floor. Floor 4 is the ground floor and is designated as such since it is 4 floors above sea level. A wide pathway to the beach (wheelchair accessible) is totally contained in the Casa Corazon grounds. The path ends at a gate at the Malecon requiring one step down from the curb and one step... back up on the other side. Pass through Ritmos Cafe to their palapas. When you want a change in ambiance and scenery, walk to the right toward the municipal pier. We are within easy walking distance to many of the restaurants and clubs you may be familiar with or have read about. These include Archie's Wok, Daiquiri Dick's, Cafe Roma, Cafe de Olla, El Dorado, Andale's, La Palapa, The River Cafe, Blue Shrimp, Joe Jack's Fish Shack, Sea Monkey, Ritmo's, Coco's Kitchen, Harry's Bar, Dog House, Mariscos Polo, Freddy's Tucan, Hacienda Alemana, Que Pasa, La Piazzetta, Langostino's, Kaiser Maximillian, El Torito, Cafe Bohemio, Nacho Daddy, Fajita Republic, A Taste of Italy, in no particular order and many, many more. In front of A Taste of Italy is a small park on the far side of which you can catch a bus for local destinations. Pay your 7 pesos when you get on and tell the driver where you want to get off. As we said, Location, location, location!! For us it is a 2 minute walk down to the beach, including pauses to admire Pancho the gardener's handiwork. New pool now operational, no tile yet on the concrete surrounding it! The grounds have gated security and a night watchman on duty. The door has an extra deadbolt, chain lock and peephole. The sliding glass doors have dowel rods to insert at floor level for additional security. We have never had a security problem. Our condo has a queen size bed, kitchen with 2 burner stovetop and convection oven as well as all appliances and dishware. We just added an electric fry pan for use indoors or out. A/C, wi-fi, flat screen tv with cable, dvd and alarm clock are included. The back yard area is for the private use of this unit.Brick pavers have been installed making for a great backyard feel. The gas BBQ is next to the long bar area for mixing drinks and entertaining after a tough day at the beach. Grill up some nice steaks and perhaps invite the folks you met today at the beach. This is your private area.The large palapa provides great afternoon shade after a tough day on the beach. Choose to cook outdoors as well. Several local stores for quick shopping. For longer stays and bigger shopping trips, Sam's, Walmart, Costco and equivalent Mexican chains are an easy and inexpensive cab ride away. This is a self-catering place to stay. It is perfect for people who like to "take care of themselves". If you require white glove service and someone following you to the beach in case you drop your towel, this is not your place. At the completion of each rental we will send you a certificate redeemable for a companion airfare ticket as our way of saying Thanks. Have FUN! Maid service is provided once per week, normally 3 or 4 days after arrival for a 7 night stay. One set of beach towels are provided and they will be exchanged when the maid comes. If you feel you need more towels, please bring them with you. There are no laundry facilities onsite but there are many places to drop clothes and towels for washing, drying and folding at a very reasonable price. Additionally, you can arrange with our property manager for more frequent maid service at extra cost. Mention it to you representative when you are met upon arrival or email them if you need extra service.
